Property type mobile home
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Full Kitchen, Private Location Super Close To Beach.

Castaway’s is just 2 blocks from the beach. You can almost see the ocean from the driveway, but the house is nestled among the wild rhododendrons and windswept coastal pines, on a large (1/4 acre) lot with US Forest Service land behind.

An open floor plan with kitchen, living room, and dining room united as one large room in this 615 square foot manufactured home invite viewing the beautiful & whimsical gardens and coastal forest at hand outside. The living room has a 40 inch TV with Blueray player & Roku streaming internet TV. The furniture is as eclectic as the garden, with a mix of antiques and new pieces that gives it a cozy comfortable feel.

The bedroom has a new queen size bed, and its own TV. The new queen sofa-sleeper in the living room has a 5 inch memory foam mattress, so can comfortably sleep 2 adults, or your children.

The kitchen has a new electric range (with new microwave above), plus large refrigerator and a dishwasher. There's a great full size front loading washer & dryer in the hallway. The spacious bathroom features a shower/tub combo, and a fun tropical turquoise motif.

A back deck and fire pit is complemented by an afternoon sunny area at the front with a large picnic table. A couple of short hikes head into the adjoining forest, where you'll also get views of the surf … perhaps carry a chair to sit and read a book and feel like you're in the wilderness (you are!). The landscaping is just fun and reflects the owners’ British-inspired artistic flair. Can you find the gnomes?

Castaway's Cottage is gated from the street and has a large driveway to accommodate your toy hauler or boat trailer, and an oversized one car garage for parking a car or toys inside if desired.

About Leslie

Rich retired 2013 following careers in education, forestry and national parks, tours/travel in the USA, and retail garden centers in the USA and UK. Joode is retired from a nursing career in Oxford and the Cotswolds with the UK National Health Service.

We are both enthusiastic gardeners and enjoy the outdoors, birds, beaches, and travel- in fact we met on an adventure tour in South America and were married on Heceta Beach, just a few minutes’ walk form Castaway’s Cottage.

Leslie purchased this mobile home in 2003

Why Leslie chose Central Coast

Castaway’s Cottage is a light and fully equipped property surrounded by a perfect mix of beach, forest, and tranquility on the beautiful Oregon Coast. There’s plenty of off-road parking at Castaway’s Cottage too, including a garage.

When at home at the cottage, we listen to the waves and the wind in the trees, and watch the many kinds of birds that visit each day, delighting in knowing that the woods and beach stretch for miles beyond.

What makes this mobile home unique

It’s just a five minute walk to the beach and more birds, plus seals, whales (in season), and of course the special beach treasures that might be found. While we delight in taking beachwalks in all kinds of weather, Castaway’s Cottage enjoys a microclimate that is often especially sunny and warm.

Just minutes away by car are more beaches, dunes, parks, forests, headlands, rivers, lakes, and communities of the coast and inland areas. What more can one ask for?

Guestbook comments from the manager

The castaway cottage was just perfect, 2 blocks from the beach. The unit had everything you could need and more, very relaxing and easy access to everything. Leslie was very accommodating and helpful and easy to contact by phone, text or email. We will book with Leslie's unit the next time we are in Florence. Thanks Leslie
