About the property

Sleeps 2. 1 Bedroom 1 Bathroom, Studio Beach Cottage

The Pelican Cottage comfortably sleeps two adults and boasts of amazing ocean views practically close enough to reach out and touch. The sounds of the surf will lull you into sleep while the soft sea air caresses your senses into a deeper slumber.

The Pelican Cottage will invite you from the moment you stroll up to it’s spacious deck and french doors. Along the way you’ll pass by the hot tub, Weber charcoal barbeque and adirondack chairs on the deck. Then step through the glass french doors into a cozy, warm and inviting studio cottage with nicely laid-out and appointed kitchen and eating bar and private bathroom. The studio boasts of a King size bed, lovely and comfortable furnishings, fully stocked kitchen, Wi- Fi, cable television, linens, and towels, books, magazines, information about the area, provided and more…!

You’ll experience stunning ocean views from nearly every window of the Pelican Cottage. The sandy beach at the base of the gentle bluff stretches for miles in both directions, is uncrowded, and ever-changing. You can reach the beach from the public beach access just a short walk or drive away. The beach below the cottage is dog friendly and leash optional. If your dogs are friendly and do not bite, leashes are optional on the property. Pets must be kept with you when you leave the property, and be house broken. Thank You! Please note: Because of our most westerly location you may experience stubborn locks, sand and moisture. We live on the property and are here to help in a moments notice however we ask you choose your vacation spot wisely as there is little we can do about the effects of the mighty sea just a stones throw from the Pelican Cottage! Happy Trails

About Patrice

Former Food and Beverage Director in CA.

Advanced education in Hospitality. Beach Bum.

Patrice purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Patrice chose Gold Beach

It's beauty and location. I stumbled upon the property nearly 20 years ago when it was not for sale. It just happen to be on the market when I moved back to the ocean! My heart lives here, and it brings pleasure and meaning to my life to share this beautiful place.

What makes this cottage unique

Unbeatable views, & short walk to beach access. A peaceful spot where you can hear and see the sea. Pets stay for free The beach below the cottage is dog friendly and leash optional. Also, there is an excellent market up the street that carries wine, beer, fresh made sandwiches and hamburgers, pet food etc. A quiet peaceful and safe sea side village. Short walk to beach access.

Please note: Pelican Cottage faces the sea and is a stones throw away from hot tub and deck so you may experience stubborn locks, sand and moisture. We live on the property and are ready to help in a moments notice. We ask you to choose your vacation spot wisely as there is little we can do to control the effects of the mighty sea! Happy Trails!

Thank you to Patrice and her crew. The house was spotless, the cheesecake wine and cookies were so thoughtful. We are already planning our next stay. And the view is absolutely breathtaking!

Beautiful little cottage with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect for a short getaway. It's really clean, cozy, and the bed is super big and comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom are well stocked and provide everything you need for your stay. Also, there is a nice surprise of wine, cookies, and coffee in the fridge to enjoy! The views from this place are amazing and beach access is just a short drive away (1 mile exactly). The place is about 7 miles from the town of Gold Beach where you can find groceries and supplies. Near the house is a small mart for quick little things. The only issue with this place is wifi and cable. Wifi went out several times during our stay and the cable also went out on our last night. The owner, Patrice, did try to get it fixed right away and had a guy come by to work on it, but it never quite worked well. When the cable is working, this place has the full cable package with all of the premium channels so there's plenty of choice. Verizon cell service seemed to work here, but T-mobile does not. The surrounding area is worth driving on Highway 101 and pulling off at every state park or stop is worth it. There is tons of beauty along this coastline. There are also a few great fishing rivers to try your luck at within 30 minute drives. We never used the hot tub, but it's right in front of the house and has great views out to the ocean. A great place for some quiet time and relaxation.

Lovely, relaxing weekend

  • 4 of 5

With the windows or french doors open, the soothing sounds from the ocean fill the cottage. The cottage is cute, and was perfect for myself and my dog. Quiet and private, which is something I was looking for my long weekend away. Patrice and her staff have set the house up with everything we needed for 4 days and includes a full kitchen, coffee maker and my favorite, coffee bean grinder for fresh coffee each morning! The king bed is cozy and comfortable. The small yard in front of the cottage was perfect for my dog in the morning and evening (though it is not fenced). The cottage is only 3 hours from where I live in Eureka California, and the drive is easy and beautiful, so it is a perfect get away. Gold Beach - 6 miles to the south - has everything needed. The beaches are beautiful and access is easy about 1 mile down the road for either a nice walk or a short drive. I travel by myself (and with my dog) frequently and like not only quiet and privacy, but feeling safe, which the Pelican Cottage provides. My only criticism is with the locks on the the french door. the bolt lock needs some daily shots of WD-40; the key barely will go in and once I got it in to lock, it took me a couple of minutes to get it out. As for the handle, it is loose, and difficult to lock from the outside. (There is no problem from the inside). Lovely place; lovely stay. Thank you Patrice.

Like the title says, Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Pelican could not have been better. Middle of December and shorts and shirtsleeves on the beach. The Pelican was perfect for the 4 nights we were there as we explored the southern Oregon coast. It was clean and well kept up. Huge king bed and comfy too. It was a perfect stay at the beach.........

Lovely place, lovely location!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage on the edge of a bluff is sublime!! It is clean and very well stocked. The bed is cozy & comfy & the view is unparalleled!! Patrice

& staff are very attentive to detail and upon arriving we found a bottle of wine, cookies to make and coffee to drink. Thank you!! Sleeping to the sound of waves...heavenly. The hot tub was another bonus just down the steps. Had a good day on our arrival, but the weather turned on the 2nd, but it was still gorgeous! It is a bit out of town, so just know that.

We would come back in a NY minute!!!

( little suggestion...maybe include a couple of robes in the armoire...would be nice to snuggle into them after hot tub!!)

Owner's Response: Hello C & P, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a helpful review. I will talk to the ladies on Staff about your suggestion regarding robes! Excellent idea. Also, thank you for pointing out we are 6 miles N of Gold Beach. We have a little market here called Nesika Beach Market and it has most dry goods, excellent hamburgers and sandwiches made to order, and a very good wine and beer selection. Happy Trails! Patrice and Staff
