Len & Mary Matheson grew up in Southern California and now live in Missouri. Active grandparents and professionals, they enjoy hosting family and friends in their home on the spectacular southern Oregon coast.

Mary Matheson purchased this house in 2006

Far from the crowds of California and the summer heat of the midwest. Once we arrive and walk on the beach, the cares of the world melt away.

The southern Oregon coast is known for its spectacular cliffs. Sebastian Shores is located at beach level. Our Seaview Grotto home is a few feet off the beach, nestled in a fern grotto with southern exposure, protecting the hot tub from wind, while allowing sunbathing during the day and stargazing at night.

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
This home fully met ~ and even exceeded ~ my expectations. The owner was extremely accommodating and easy to work with! She provided a crock pot after a simple inquiry because our weekend looked like it would be filled with rain! My mom, sisters and I fully enjoyed this wonderful home! Easy access to the beach when the sky cleared, luxuriating in the hot tub at our convenience, and enjoying a full kitchen instead of eating out. Absolutely loved it!

DRIFT WOOD WALKS

  • 5 of 5
What a delightful beach home. I loved the walk to the beach through sand dunes laced with wild flowers. The crashing waves on the rock-strewn beach was awesome I loved the wind blowing through my hair and an added bonus-- no insects. Everything we needed was in the very comfortable,clean, nearby appointed home including the very private back yard with a hot tub. I can't wait to return!!!

BIRTHDAY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
I was browsing websites looking for a get-away on the coast when I remembered the wonderful time I had at Sea View Grotto a couple years ago. I was there for a private birthday retreat and it was perfect for me. The house is nestled among big trees, is tastefully decorated and is comfortable for one, a couple or family, or a group. I stayed on the first floor only, enjoying the spacious master bedroom, comfy living areas and the open, totally equipped kitchen. It was stormy the first night and I loved the view out the dining room window of the wild ocean a couple of hundred feet from the house and hearing the sounds of the waves. The next morning I walked on the peaceful beach. The town of Gold Beach is really cute and has some very good restaurants if you don't want to cook. Day trips north on 101 take you to coastal towns with lots of charm, views and parks. I am going back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your gracious comments about our home. We choose our location carefully to get both the beauty of the trees and have also have a gorgeous stretch of beach 200 feet away. Try coming back in Sept. or October which many consider the very best and warmest months in Gold Beach. Kindest regards, Mary and Len

EXCELLENT FAMILY VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
This vacation home is perfect for a family with lots kids. Its not right on the beach but is tucked up out of the wind making it super nice hanging out in the hot tub and just a short walk to the beach.
The owner provided everything a family would need away from home: full kitchen with all the appliances, board games, extra bedding, and bbq.
The house is very comfortable and clean with lots of sleeping arrangements for everyone.
This is a very special find for the family on the Oregon coast.

Come back again soon. Mary

SPRING BREAK

  • 5 of 5
The location next to the beach is great. The property is well-kept and clean. You are close to shopping and restaurants and can walk to town along the beach. The redwoods are not far south and there are many beachs along the coast to explore and hike along. This is a great location to see and do many activities from. I highly recommend the property and the Gold Beach area.

Locale

Seaview Grotto is located at the southern edge of Gold Beach in Sebastian Shores, the last private 'on-the-beach' residential colony on the Pacific coast of the United States. Although the wide and sandy beach is public, it is used almost exclusively by homeowners and guests of the Sebastian Shores colony, making it safe and comfortable for notables who want to be left alone. Pass your day on the beach building driftwood art, bird watching, kite flying, reading or napping, and shell collecting. Walk north on the beach 100 yards to the Gold Beach Visitor Center and ask the friendly docents to help you plan your stay, then continue 1.5 miles along the beach to the Rogue River as it enters the Pacific Ocean. South from Sebastian Shores, wade through or leap across Hunter Creek and stop at Kissing Rock, a beautiful example of the Oregon Coast's ancient volcanic origin. If you're with someone you love, help the rock keep its reputation. The low tide pools are exciting to explore. Walk, run or ride your beach cruiser bicycle through Buena Vista Ocean Wayside State Park to Cape Sebastian, 3 miles further south.

Wind Surfing and Paddle Boarding

World-class ocean windsurfing and paddle boarding at Pistol River and freshwater windsurfing (and lessons) at Floras Lake are major attractions.

Family Activities

Free berry picking along every back road is popular with families in July, August, and September. Spectacular hiking abounds for people at all levels of ability on well-maintained trails. A campfire on the beach (away from the sea grass dunes) is a wonderful evening activity.

Shopping & Dining

The town of Gold Beach boasts the best bookstore and art gallery in southern Oregon with baristas and a pastry chef famous known for her creative use of local fruits and berries. The Gold Rush Center is home to wonderful local artists and craftspersons. Two supermarkets and a fish market have all the provisions for wonderful home-cooked meals at Seaview Grotto, but Gold Beach has several excellent restaurants within walking distance and the elegant Tu Tu Tun Lodge and Spa with its exquisite riverside dining room seven miles up the north shore road of the Rogue River. The cliffs at Otter Point and Nesika Beach can be carefully explored a few miles north of town.

Golf

Two intimate and fun (and inexpensive) public golf courses are nestled in banana belts within 30 minutes. The fantastic Bandon Dunes golf complex is less than 1-hour north, with 5 spectacular courses. Golf Odyssey reports, “on this remote stretch of the wildly stunning Oregon coast, where the finest golf courses in the whole world quietly await you.”

Wild and Scenic Rogue River

Two miles from the house, the Rogue River enters the Pacific Ocean from its origins 215 miles east in Crater Lake. Famous for Salmon and Steelhead trout, Gold Beach winter fishing in a heated boat could not be more relaxing. The Rogue National Wild and Scenic River is surrounded by forested mountains and rugged boulder and rock-lined banks. Two jet boat companies provide safe and comfortable but very exciting trips up into remote canyons where Bald Eagles, Otters, and Black Bears abound.

Coastal Redwoods

Considered to be one of America’s most beloved treasures, the old growth Coastal Redwood forests begin just below the California border, 30 miles south of Gold Beach. Stop by the Visitors Center in Crescent City to choose your Redwoods experience. These majestic trees cannot be captured on camera – they need to be experienced! Fishing, hiking, bird watching, and Roosevelt Elk are all part of you Redwood Forest visit.
