The owners are semi retired from Iowa. Two adult daughters still reside in Iowa. Ralph is an Environmental Engineer and Toni a retired Registered Nurse. Gardening, beachcombing, collecting, quilting, scrapbooking and photography have been major hobbies. They have had Labs and Miniature Schnauzers for pets.
Toni or Ralph Turkle purchased this apartment in 2003
We chose this area to retire at and continue working for its overwhelming beauty and close access to the beach, woods, and all coastal activities. We saw it as a semi retirement dream for work and recreation. We live in the upper level of the home with private entry and the first level as a licensed complete rental space with 2 private entries.
The spacious first floor rental has many amenities; snacks, tea and coffee offerings. Stock food items, spices, etc are provided. It is in the beach decor as well as subtle holiday time theme decor. Specific type may be requested if given notice without charge. Flowers are always provided at the table and key areas according to season. Guests have private access to the patio and other yard areas.
This place is so completely comfortable that we didn't want to leave. The kitchen has everything you need and more to make a great meal. The furniture is comfortable to watch long movies. The yard is fenced for your pet and beautiful along with a great grill. They had the best movies and they're so close to the beach. We walked there daily. The king bed was so great we actually slept in later than usual. The linens were of quality and we couldn't find anything we needed because they have thought of everything. Toni had asked if we could make any suggestions to make things better and I have to honestly say we couldn't think of anything which is unusual for us. The hosts are amazing and leave all the basics and more like a lovely bottle of wine, fruit, special dog treats, ETC. We can't wait to go back. It's just a haven of comfort.
My heart is full of so much gratitude that both Toni and Ralph provided for my family and I during our one week stay at their beautiful vacation home. Anyone who is interested in experiencing a great family vacation, their vacation home will definitely make you feel that you can relax and escape from all your worries. They have definitely gone above and beyond to make us feel welcome there, even before we began our trip. The personal touches throughout the year before we left were amazing!!! Not only was our location quiet, comfortable and homey, it was all the little details to our stay that made this such a great place to escape too. The kitchen was definitely amazing, we wish our kitchen at home had all the utensils one can imagine, not to mention the special treats on the counter and water in the fridge. We felt like they thought of everything to make our stay very comfortable. Additionally, for someone who is a very light sleeper, the master bedroom was very quiet and the KING SIZE bed extremely comfortable. I always worry about how I will sleep when I go away on vacation. I assure you I was plenty rested for our days spent exploring the area. Lastly, I cannot even begin to tell you how much we appreciated all the birds and flowers outside of our home. Every morning we were greeted with their beauty and happiness. We definitely hope to return in the future.
I can't even express how wonderful our stay at Ralph and Toni's flat was. The attention to detail, exceeded my families expectations..it was a wonderful stay. Ralph and Toni are kind and generous, and the care and love they have put into their home/ business is obvious from the minute you walk through the door. We will be back!

Wow, another wonderful week at Reflections of TLC. We stayed here in October and were so happy to come again so soon. Everything about Ralph & Toni's rental exceeds our expectations. We don't ever want to stay at any other rental when we're in Oregon. Ralph & Toni are so sweet and have been so ready and willing to make both of our vacation weeks unforgettable experiences. We feel right at home in their rental. Everything in it is immaculately clean with wonderful décor, furniture and appliances. We have developed a great friendship with them and keep in touch usually through email.
The photographic opportunities at Cannon Beach and other areas of Oregon and Washington are endless. Haystack Rock, sunsets over the Pacific, Ecola Park, whales at Depoe Bay, numerous water falls near Portland, Mt. Hood and Mt. Jefferson (named after Thomas Jefferson) and Mt. St. Helen's volcanic site in Washington. The Johnston Observatory is the best way to get photos of Mt. St. Helen's even though it is 5 miles away. It's a short drive from Cannon Beach to the observatory.
We encourage you to take the 2 hour ride on the Willamette Jet Excursion Boat in Portland. Thom & I had so much fun. It was well worth the $39.00/person for the trip. And, yes, we did get wet. The pilot did 5 complete turn around spins. It is a flat bottom boat, so it won't turn over. There was the surprise at the half-way point which was a waterfall...another photo opportunity.
Our 2 times staying in Cannon Beach at Reflections of TLC have been our 2 favorite vacations. Please don't look any further for a place to stay...make your reservation today.
Our stay at TLC was fabulous!! Everything we could possibly need was provided and more. Our 5 year old Jack Russell stayed there with us and she had everything she needed also! The home setting is very peaceful. Both the inside and outside are beautiful. We were greeted in the morning by the birds and the smell of the flowers. Our interests were in sightseeing and beach combing. Ralph and Toni provided us with daily ideas for our fun adventures! We will definitely be back to stay at Reflections of TLC!!
We can't say enough good things about our stay at Reflections of TLC. It is even nicer than the photos show. We walked into the apartment and said, Oh, this is even nicer than I expected. It was immaculately clean and so welcoming. There was a bowl of fresh fruit on the snack bar, granola bars, trail mix, crackers and cookies on the counter top. Toni had several bouquets of fresh flowers throughout the apartment. It was all so lovely and cozy. We have enjoyed this vacation so very much. All the furnishings are beautiful and the king size bed in the master bedroom was so nice and comfortable. We nearly felt as if we were floating in the bed. It was wonderful. We used the wood stove and it was nice to stand close to it and warm ourselves like we used to when we were children.
Ralph and Toni are such terrific hosts. They definitely pampered us. They helped us with planning places to go visit. I am definitely telling our friends about Reflections of TLC. Infact, we have already told 2 families they will just love it.
We want to visit again in 2013. There are lots of places to visit. We visited Depoe Bay and went whale watching and did see a gray whale. That was so exciting. I was totally taken in when we went to Multomah Falls about 30 miles east of Portland. We also went and toured the Grotto in Portland.
We went to Washington and saw Mt St. Helen's Volcanic site. It started snowing before we arrived so our stay there was brief due to the 1 1/2 inches of the accumulation of snow. It was a bit slick on a portion of road not too far on our way down. Ecola Park was absolutely beautiful with its many walking paths and view of the ocean. Haystack Rock is something to see. We would have walked out to it when the tide was low, but it was cool that day and we did not want our jeans wet.
We applaude and appreciate Ralph's and Toni's committment to the apartment. What a blessing it was to spend our week there and hopefully next year also.
