Overview

About the property

Studio condo with king bed - enjoy the fireplace and oceanview and TV from bed!

The Sand Dollar is chic, spacious, and very clean. This ground-level studio has a welcoming, warm electric fireplace, ocean balcony, and comfortable seating. The kitchenette has all appliances and conveniences to serve a full meal or a snack, although with small counter surface. The ocean balcony gives unspoiled enjoyment of the ever-changing tides and surfs. The king bed has a nightstand, light and by the front door, there is a closet for hanging clothes.

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

BRING BINOCULARS on your trip! You can watch ships, whales, people, birds, and vehicles stuck in the sand...great fun!

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

The Sand Dollar is ideally located between Highway 101 and the Pacific Ocean. So you can walk one block to the beach, or one block to shops and restaurants on the highway!

For your planning purposes: our rates are based on occupancy. Extra guests over the number of two are only $5/person/night. This makes our condo affordable for couples or families. If you arrive with additional guests who are undeclared, the cost is $10/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 of warm oceans and boats and all things nautical.

Teresa Reich purchased this studio in 2014

Why Teresa Reich chose Central Coast

We enjoy the ocean and beach immensely, and keep finding ourselves vacationing at Lincoln City! The interior decor is vintage, and we are intrigued with the possibilities for more fun decorating. And the view here is unsurpassed by anything we've seen at the coast.

What makes this studio unique

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

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 campfire on the beach. 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). Weekends only: Fri/Sat 4pm-2am, Sun 4pm-midnight.

Nice , clean

  • 3 of 5

No where to put clothes, Room could use a dresser next to fridge to put clothes in or in corner where tv is, table to small, could use a breakfast counter so there would be more room to eat and prepare food. But overall very nice and clean, I would stay there again

Owner's Response: Thank you for your remarks. The Sand Dollar is advertised as a studio with kitchenette, so it is a small, convenient space. We do provide luggage racks for suitcases, which many guests prefer rather than a dresser. And we have other condos at the same address that are one, two, and three bedroom units if you require more space.

Cozy with a spectacular view!

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable & cozy! As others have said, the view cannot be beat. We saw whales, seals and otters - all while standing in front of the fireplace! Everything was clean and we found it to be very quiet. We would definitely come back.

Best view in Lincoln City

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented the Sand Dollar for a week in September. The ocean views and balcony are the best in Lincoln City. You are literally right there. We are older and didn't even need to walk down to the beach to appreciate the sea. However, walking to the beach takes just a minute or two, via gentle steps.

The condo was clean, but a bit retro, with some wood paneling. The king size bed was comfy, and the linens were nice.

The onsite manager was great. He showed us where we could do our laundry in the facility, with out having to pay. That was a huge plus.

A few issues were dusty baseboards, some of the vents needed cleaning, and the window blind was missing a slat, and the window tracks were dirty. Nothing major, just something that should be checked.

Wi fi was good, and the property is very well sound insulated. We could hear the people above us walking around, but we never heard any tv, or people talking.

Would rent again in a heartbeat.

Amazing View, Easy Access

  • 4 of 5

The main attraction of this property is definitely the balcony overlooking the ocean, providing stunning views and a pleasant place to sit back and read.

The kitchen is small but functional, although limited counter space would make it hard to make anything too involved.

The bathroom is small, giving just enough room for one person to maneuver. There is no fan in the bathroom, and the only ventilation is a window that opens onto the main walkway.

The living area is open and spacious, and could easily accommodate a cot if needed. We could hear neighbors walking around in the unit above us, but there was no one in the unit next to us so I don't know how well the walls are insulated. The headboard was loose and would hit the wall whenever we got into or out of the bed, so I put a pillow between the headboard and wall to solve that problem.

As for amenities, the WiFi is marginal, but the satellite TV provides numerous movie channels as well as local news.

The price is reasonable and the view is spectacular. This is an 8-unit building, almost like a small motel, so you won't get complete privacy on the balcony. Overall, I was happy and would recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your observations. Counter space in the kitchen is small; that's why I have listed it as a "kitchenette." It's just very nice to have all the comforts of home there at the beach.

The Sand Dollar 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 30 miles south 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!

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

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
