Overview

About the property

Two queen bedrooms with telescope, large kitchen, easy beach access

Living room opens onto ocean front balcony. Fully-furnished kitchen and spacious counters and table allows meals to be cooked for a crowd. Gas fireplace makes star-gazing cozy and romantic. Both bedrooms are large, with hanging closet space and full length mirrors. The couch in the front room is not a sofa bed, but we can provide sheets and blanket if someone wants to sleep there. After that, the open floor space and new carpet works great for kids' sleeping bags! The bathroom is slightly dated (with blue sink and tub and speckled formica counters!), but very functional and clean.

No smoking in the condo or balcony. No pets. No seafood cooking in the condo, please.

Telescope in the front room for star gazing; instructional DVD for the scope is in the desk. BRING YOUR OWN BINOCULARS! They work great for watching whales and ships, and whatever else catches your eye! (people, birds, vehicles stuck on the beach, etc :)

Bring your own BBQ to enjoy at the beach, or bring some starter wood to light a campfire on the beach! (The driftwood is often wet and hard to start without dry wood from home!).

We do have some stainless-steel, tabletop propane-powered BBQ's that you can rent for $10 (grill plus one Coleman propane canister). Mention at time of booking that you want one, and I will confirm whether one is available and reserve it for you. Please...no seafood grilling on our BBQ...it is very difficult to clean off.

The Wheelhouse is ideally located between the Pacific Ocean and Lincoln City. Drive down the ramp to spin a few doughnuts in the beach sand or beach comb for miles in either direction! Walk 1/4 mile to town to enjoy pizza, ice cream cones, Pier 101 seafood, Thai, Chinese or Mexican food and stroll through souvenir and thrift shops.

For your planning purposes: our rates are based on occupancy. Extra guests over the number of two cost only $10/person/night, and are quoted when you enter the total number of persons in your party. This makes our condo affordable for couples or families. If you arrive with additional guests who are undeclared, the extra person charge is $20/person/night.

Two night minimum stay required for Fri and Sat nights.

About Teresa Reich

We are a family of six who love the beach! Fifteen years ago, we bought a sailboat and took our kids sailing in the Caribbean for a year. The experience was priceless on many levels! We brought home a love for warm oceans and boats and all things nautical.

Teresa Reich purchased this condo in 2014

Why Teresa Reich chose Central Coast

Location...location...location. There just isn't any more ocean-front property being created! The Wheelhouse has the exploding horizon of sand and surf, which is always interesting, no matter the weather.

What makes this condo unique

Since it is perched on the low sea cliff, we can enjoy winter storms and balmy summer breezes in the condo. Or camp fires and long walks on the beach. An ocean front condo with a fireplace is the best place to be in the world!

The Wheelhouse is in the upscale Oceanlake Historic District, conveniently located close to a ramp to actually drive onto the beach sand! The Chinook Winds Casino and Convention Center is just 2 miles north, with an indoor golf resort, seafood dining, concerts and entertainment, and 23 table games. The local Chamber of Commerce sponsors a fun program called 'Finders Keepers' and annually hides 3000 hand blown glass sand dollars and Japanese sea floats along the 7 1/2 miles of Lincoln City beach! Be sure to walk the beach in front of your condo and look along the cliffs and among the grass and driftwood for these valuable collector items!

Just 30 miles south is the town of Newport on Yaquina Bay, with it's working fleet of fishing vessels, plus sea lions basking on the docks and dozens of quaint bayfront shops and curio stores and restaurants.

World-famous Oregon Coast Aquarium is also located in Newport, as well as the Maritime Museum and the Hatfield Marine Science Center. Your days will be delightfully full, whether beach combing for glass floats and shells or shopping or dining!

Notes:
Beach access is via 50 gentle stairs (with one handrail) or a paved ramp to drive down! In fact, during April - Sept, many cars gather on the beach (right below the condo) when the tide is out! But twice a day, the tide rolls in, and clears everybody out!!! Bring some firewood and starter and enjoy a beach campfire. It's state-owned property and perfectly legal without any permit! 'Keep the fire small as a lawn chair and west of the vegetation line and extinquish with water, not sand.' (Oregon State Parks rules) Bring roasting sticks and marshmallows and hotdogs and you'll have a very fun and memorable meal :) Chinook Winds Casino operates a shuttle bus, which comes right past our condo. Call the driver at 541 921-5100 to schedule pickup. The shuttle leaves the casino every hour, on the hour. and traverses Lincoln City down to the south end of town to Mo's Restaurant at 51st St, then returns on NW Harbor (our street). Operates weekends only: Fri/Sat 4 pm-2 am, Sun 4-midnight

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

The only thing was there are no screens on the front windows, so families with little ones should be aware.

It was also very entertaining watching the cars and trucks get stuck in the sand.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to review us. Yes, it's "dinner and a show" watching the beach activity down below the condo!

Perfect location and unit setup

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in this unit a couple of times now and will continue to come back. The location is perfect (mid-town) and right next to automobile and walking access to the beach. We've walked up the beach as far as the casino and down the beach as far as The Inn at Spanish Head. And, there is a set of stairs up the beach about 1/2 mile that is equivalent to about an 8 story building. So as much walking and climbing as you want or stay in the room and watch the people on the beach. While this might not be a kind observation, there are always people in sedans that believe their cars can drive in the deep beach sand. They are always wrong. Fortunately, there is always a 4-wheel drive around willing to pull them out. Constant entertainment right out this window.

The Jacuzzi tub and gas fireplace make for a nice evening as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. Yes, our condo has "dinner and a view"...it's great entertainment to watch the action on the beach below. The bathtub is jetted, but not fancy nor large...I have never thought of it as a jacuzzi, but thank you for mentioning it!

This was an amazing condo!! My daughter and I loved everything about it..The view was fantastic, it was very well stocked for cooking, and the beds were very comfortable. Could not ask for any place better to stay.

If the situation requires, we reserve the right to insist on a Two-night minimum stay for Fri and Sat nights.


This online reservation software system has a glitch, in that it says it charges for extra adults, but says nothing about extra children. We consider children to be as human as adults, and provide extra linens and bedding for them as well. When making your reservation, please count each child as an "adult"...that will give you the correct price for your stay. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Cancellations anytime up until 30 days prior to your stay will be cheerfully refunded minus a $10 processing fee.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
