About the property

Ocean panorama & rock crashing surf on private acreage. 3 Bed, 2 Bath sleeps 5

Welcome to the "Rocky Reef" Comfortable, quiet and private without another home in sight. Nestled in a majestic setting on several acres overlooking the Oregon coast. Situated over thundering waves on monolithic rock formations, eye level with migrating birds, watch seasonal whales in the kelp beds below..minimal light pollution offers true dark skies and starry nights with momentary lighthouse beacons from Cape Blanco and the occasional crabbing boats. You may even experience a visit from migrating Rosevelt Elk herds grazing in the yard among the frequent wildlife.

We offer a vacation choice for those who wish to unwind, relax, reflect and leave the rat race behind.

Discover all the natural beauty the southern Oregon Coast has to offer from prolific spring flowers to tide pools teaming with sea life and sea birds frolicking along the whitewater surf.

Miles of sandy beaches with intriguing rock outcroppings are just minutes away.

Our "Banana Belt" climate offers fresh comfortable sea breezes and incredible sunsets. The occasional and mighty shoulder season storms are really fun and exhilarating too. There's always a good time to visit and have another new experience.

Our 3 bedroom 2 bath home is clean, coastal casual and very comfortable. It is set up with a king bed in the master. The master has it's own on-suite with fantastic ocean view! The second bedroom has a queen bed in nautical decor and the third bedroom has a Double Bed in wicker nautical theme. Those both sharing the main bathroom with a tub shower combination.

We have a flat screen TV with Dish network and a Bose surround sound system. There are plush leather recliners for your viewing pleasure. In addition we offer a generously equipped kitchen including a stocked exchange pantry for fun . There is also a large viewing deck with outdoor furniture and a stainless steel BBQ.

We now offer internet service with a Verizon MIFI, it receives an excellent 4G signal in the home that drops to 3G after 10GB monthly and Wi-Fi link works great!. That's what we use when visiting if we must be interrupted.... We do not know how other cell phone service providers will work here but nobody has told us of a reception issue to date.

This home is comfortable for a family or two couples.. Rates reflect an occupancy of two with additional costs for additional guests. A better view, privacy, quiet, comfort and value combination may be impossible to find...seriously, check our reviews and the photos, we do not exaggerate or location with area photo's, they are all on-site ....

One of several easily accesiable beaches is only 5 minutes away. That beach being sandy and has a six mile walkable area with almost no human traffic on it most of the time! There are around 10 beaches with different topography within 20 minutes drive, or if you are more adventurous hike Sisters Rocks, Humbug, Samuel Boardman, Cape Blanco, Otter Point, Cape Sebastian, Coast Guard Hill or the multitude of other state parks close by.

Rocky Reef is beautiful, well maintained (spotless) and comfortable. Karl and Victoria have thought of everything and supply games, DVDs and a fully furnished kitchen. The ocean view of surf and rocks provides constant entertainment. We also appreciated the privacy that Rocky Reef provides.

We were here for four nights and wished it was longer, we’ll be back! This home was everything we hoped for and would highly recommend it.

We were wowed the moment we drove onto the property, it’s beautifully landscaped and maintained. When you walk in the home you notice how the rooms are large and welcoming. Karl and Victoria have thought of everything from the “exchange” pantry, books and games to enjoy. But the way the home is spotless ! Then you look out the back to the spectacular overwhelming ocean view. I couldn’t keep my eyes off of the ever changing scenery.

Karl and Victoria thought of everything to make our stay a sweet sweet memory.

We highly recommend this home and we will be back!!!

Our new favorite home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I have to be honest, it was love at first sight. The house was so warm and welcoming, and the grounds were beautiful. All the comforts of home were available to us from pots and pans to puzzles. We couldn't of picked a better place to spend our Thanksgiving with our family. Thank you, we will return for sure. Pat and Linda Willick.

One of the most beautiful places we've ever stayed!

  • 5 of 5

Victoria was at the house when my Mom and I arrived. She was doing the final touches on beautifying the perfect property and house!

The house was immaculate! The basket of fresh fruit was wonderful! And then the view- no words to describe it! Although all of the photos are incredible, they still don't do it justice.

My 91 year old Mother has a tiny bit of vision left. I enjoyed watching her sit in the sun on the deck and knit. We were also able to sit in the chairs on the edge of the grass, drink wine and watch the sunset! These are memories I will cherish for the rest of my life!

I can't wait to come back! Thank you to our wonderful hosts- Karl and Victoria!
