About the property

Queen bed in private bedroom, double sofa bed in front room, great ocean view!

Moonraker is chic, spacious, and very clean. Moonraker means the very top sail on an sailing vessel. This top story condo provides the best view of the beach!

The front room is welcoming with its gas fireplace, ocean balcony, and comfortable seating. The couch opens into a double sleeper sofa, and is situated right by the sliding glass door, so you can hear the waves there, too! The balcony provides a real enjoy the surf and waves from the comfort of your own condo.

The kitchen has all appliances and conveniences (minus a dishwasher) to serve a full meal or a snack. This condo is on the top level (up 15 stairs with handrails on both sides), so nothing spoils one's enjoyment of the ever-changing tides and surfs. The comfortable bedroom has a queen bed, dresser, nightstand with light and closet for hanging clothes. The bathroom is sparkling clean with a tub and shower for your convenience.

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!).

Easy beach access down 20 concrete steps, with handrail. There's even a paved road to drive onto the beach, so you can bring grandma with you to enjoy a crackling beach fire!

No smoking in the condo or balcony. No service animals or pets allowed in our private condo. No seafood cooking in the condo, please.

Moonraker is ideally located between the Pacific Ocean and Lincoln City. Drive down the ramp to spin a few doughnuts in the sand or beachcomb 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 $5/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 $10/person/night.

About Teresa Reich

Hi, we are the Reich Family. Dan and I met at Walla Walla College in Washington State in the 1980's and have been flirting with each other ever since. We love our kids, enjoy travel, and assisting other travelers by offering great value at our RV Parks and vacation rentals.

Teresa Reich purchased this condo in 2014

Why Teresa Reich chose Lincoln City

Location, location, location! The Weatherly has the exploding horizon of sand and surf, which is always interesting, no matter the weather. No more beachfront is being made, so this unique cliffside condo with a fabulous view is a treasure to us. Location, location, location! The Weatherly 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 campfires and long walks on the beach. An oceanfront condo with a fireplace is the best place to be in the world!

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 extinguish with water, not sand.' (Oregon State Parks rules) Bring roasting sticks and hotdogs; 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 4pm-2am, Sun 4 pm-midnight.

Beyond funky but I liked it. Only thing wrong was that it smelled musty upon arrival. But I aired it

Everything was clean and comfy.

  • 5 of 5

This unit has a fantastic view of the beach. It can be rainy in Oregon, so when we go to the beach, we want to be able to watch the ocean even if rainy. This was great!

My wife and I need a good, firm bed or we wake up in the morning with sore backs. We were very pleased with the bed in this unit. It was very comfortable and we slept well.

Only 3 minor nits. 1) We're coffee drinkers. The miniature coffee pot provided won't make enough coffee to even fill two of the cups provided. A full size coffee pot would've been nice. 2) the screen door is rusty and doesn't move easily on its tracks. 3) the recliner is a little finicky. But these are very minor things. We enjoyed our stay very much.

We hope to go back again later this summer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. Yes, I am purchasing a larger coffee pot! Rust is a common problem at the ocean, and we will oil the screen door track to see if that helps. Up to this point, we have not found a large, sturdy, comfortable recliner like the one we currently have, and we are reluctant to part with it!

Lovely ocean view in Lincoln city

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I really enjoyed our stay at the moonraker. The best thing is without a doubt the location, amazing view, easy beach access and close enough to walk to do some shopping or dining. We did have a little issue with one of the stove burners not working and the satellite also seemed to be out while we were there, but we weren't really interested in watching tv anyway. Overall the stay was great, I found the listing to be accurate and I would return in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We have ordered a replacement stove burner, and are writing clear instructions for operating the satellite TV.

Lovely Condo!

  • 5 of 5

A very cozy, comfortable place to stay and the view is breathtaking! We were there to celebrate our birthdays, and the hosts had even left a signed birthday card and a box of candy for us - so thoughtful! We would definitely stay again and highly recommend this place to others, it exceeded our expectations!

Moon Raker - top floor 1 bedroom

  • 5 of 5

Second stay at this property, different room. First time was ground floor but tried the upstairs room this time. No elevator but shallow stairs so easy to climb. Awesome location on the bluff with easy access to the beach and tide pools right beside the complex. Unbeatable view especially for the price. Apartment was modest but clean and worked for the 4 of us girls as we all get along very well. Probably more suited for two though. We got a peak into the new addition "Lookout" 2 bedroom apartment. If you don't mind paying a little more, would be well worth it. Very tastefully done and brand new! The owners were there updating one of the apartments but very careful to not bother us with the noise of construction. Mike and Rosy, the caretakers, were very friendly and eager to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay. We will definitely be staying here the next time we visit Lincoln City.

Moonraker is in the upscale Oceanlake Historic District, conveniently located next 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!

Ten miles south of Lincoln City is an exit for Boiler Bay State Park. It is famous for incredible ocean views, as well as one of the best places to spot migrating and resident gray whales.

Thirteen miles south...turn right onto Otter Crest Loop for a more direct ocean drive. Off this Loop is also Cape Foulweather Visitor Center and Devils Punchbowl State Park, so named as at high tide, seawater swirls within a cavern appearing like a punchbowl. This park features 180-degree ocean views, whale sightings, fascinating rock formations, and is very popular with surfers and surf watchers. After a stop here, continue south on Otter Crest Loop to rejoin US-101

Just 30 miles south of Lincoln City 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 away in Newport, as well as the Maritime Museum and the Hatfield Marine Science Center. Two lighthouses, at Yaquina Bay State Park and Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area, are also here in Newport.

Your days will be delightful, whether sightseeing or beach combing for glass floats or shopping or dining or reading in front of the fireplace!
