About David and Karen Locke

My husband Dave and I had originally purchased a house in the Taft area of Lincoln City. Although it was very close to beach access, it did not have an ocean view. After owning that house for seven years, we decided to sell it with the goal of having a house providing an ocean view.

David and Karen Locke purchased this house in 2013

Why David and Karen Locke chose Lincoln City

It took us almost a year to find this property. Our criteria seemed simple, but many houses we looked at did not meet the two main requirements: Good ocean view and close beach access. After viewing over 50 homes, this property by far had the best ocean view! Can't get much better than ocean front with floor to ceiling windows! To top it off, we ended up with direct access to the beach. The deck offers good visibility for when the kids want to go down to the sand. They stay back from the tide and usually play in the stream that flows into the ocean, build sand forts or castles, or play with other kids on the beach!

Originally the concept of having two units was not our first choice. However we have found that by insulating the walls between the units, the noise transmission is minimal to undetectable. Since our first rental we have had no noise issues.

What makes this house unique

With 2 suites, frequently kids from the two sides will join up to play.

We think the location is awesome for watching beach activity. At least two families informed us of having seen whales. With the right conditions, kite surfers with colorful kites frequent this beach; they can fly unbelievably high into the air. You have to see it to believe it.

With the large capacity and separate quarters offered by the individual suites, we are seeing an increased number of returning families whom are booking both sides for reunions or annual gatherings. If this is something you are considering see our listing #574624 for rates and availability - book early!

Cozy and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The owners worry about keeping the property clean, and I totally understand. I was worried about the hot tub add they discuss getting sand in it, and there was sand in it when we arrived. I took before and after pictures to be safe, I cleaned the house as I would expect it if people borrowed mine. Thank you to the owners for opening their home and allowing travelers to enjoy the beach!!!

Owner's Response: So happy to hear of another great expereience from guest! As our house instructions state, trace amounts of sand may be and come visible after hot tub has been serviced, being an older model having a bypass type filter. Our hot tub service is extremely diligient and goes the extra mile to ensure clean and chemically balanced water!

Fantastic view, cozy comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

You can't ask for a better view of the beach--you can see for miles. In the pictures it looks more accessible than it is. You must navigate 20-30 wooden steps or a narrow rocky path down to the sand, so you must be somewhat agile if you want to get down to the actual beach. I walk with a cane and didn't try it but my more active friend made it. The house was well stocked and clean, and very comfortable for my friend and I. There is only one shower (no tub) but it's huge. The location is close to the casino, restaurants and shops, but has a neighborhood feel.

We spent a few days preseason at the house and it was everything we were hoping for! It's got views that can't be beat (even with it raining for most of our time there) and the location is perfect. The house was clean and tidy and we felt right at home. Thanks for a great mini-vacation!

Amazing beach views

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by panoramic views as we opened the brontosaurus door. The house was nicely furnished and decorated and the kitchen was well-equipped. The place was very clean. We were next to public access to the beach, so there were almost always folks strolling the beach, walking their dogs, or flying kites. We could see it from our deck and living room but not hear it all. I want to come back!
