|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
This oceanfront two bedroom, two bathroom vacation cottage in Depoe Bay boasts amazing water views and is the perfect choice for an old-fashioned family vacation, or just a fun ocean getaway for up to six friends. Sitting right above the crashing waves of the Pirate Cove, this one-level beach home offers both historic charm and modern amenities.
Step into the living room where you'll be greeted with hardwood floors, a comfortable futon-style couch, reclining easy chair, and a 60s style, retro wood stove. On cool coast evenings, you can sit back in front of the fire with a martini or old-fashioned in style. There's a flat screen TV with cable and a DVD player for watching movies, and WiFi throughout the house in case you need to catch up on email.
This bright, open space also includes a dining room table right next to a large set of windows with stunning ocean views. Spend your meals socializing as a group and watching the waves crash into the cove below. This is also a wonderful viewing spot for nesting seabirds and observing sea lions sunning themselves out on the rocks.
Just outside the cottage is a well-maintained lawn and deck, where you may be lucky enough to catch a view of an eagle soaring by. There's even a carved wooden bench just out the back door to grab a few quiet moments with a book or just watch the ocean. A briquette barbecue is located out on the deck for a late afternoon feast outdoors. After dinner, you'll definitely want to linger at the outdoor table and keep an eye on the setting sun.
The full kitchen continues the retro-design but with all the modern appliances needed to create vacation meals, from fruit salad and French toast in the mornings to fish tacos with all the fixings at night. A fun, lemon yellow kitchen table completes the room and provides extra space for culinary projects or just enjoying a quick snack. Best of all, the dishwasher will have everything cleaned up quickly, so there'll be plenty of time to join in on a board game in the living room, right in front of the fire.
The spacious master bedroom has a queen sized bed, bedside tables and reading lamps, and a soft, plush, ocean blue bedspread. You'll definitely feel relaxed in this serene space, while you lay back and listen to the ocean sounds through the window. The private master bath includes the original claw foot tub, as well as a shower.
A second bedroom features very unique, sturdy queen bunk beds. Perfect for older kids or anyone who's a kid-at-heart, this room will inspire its occupants to stay up late into the night talking and having fun. Colorful bedspreads and ceramic reading lamps add style to this merry space. A second full bathroom is located nearby, as is a washer and dryer for your group's convenience.
This two bedroom, two bath cottage will sleep eight people quite comfortably. If you have a larger group, Pirate Cove Cottage 1, a one bedroom, one bath home is right next door, and ready for four additional guests. For family reunions, both spaces are ideal, with the smaller cottage providing extra privacy for grandparents or a couple with small children. For separate renters, please note that both vacation homes share the same yard, deck, and parking area.
Right outside this charming cottage, beach access is only a short five minutes north or south at either Depoe Bay's state waysides parks. Fogarty Creek State Recreation Area, about a mile north, offers plenty of opportunities for exploring, including birdwatching, tide-pooling, trails with wooden footbridges winding through Sitka spruce trees, and plenty of forest and beach views.
Downtown Depoe Bay is easily walkable from this cottage, with plenty of small shops, restaurants and art galleries to investigate. Pick up some local confections at Fuddy Duddy Fudge or browse the aisles at the Pirate's Cove Gift Shop. For more outdoor attractions, check out the Spouting Horns, a natural phenomenon caused by the ocean water being forced up through the natural lava tubes in the seawall. If there are any foodies in your group, you'll want to plan a special meal out at Restaurant Beck, just to the south of town, for a true farm-to-table experience from James Beard Award nominated chef Justin Wills.
Each December and April, Depoe Bay turns into one of the most popular destinations on the coast for Whale Watch Weeks. Visit the Whale Watch Center in town to learn more and then see if you can spot some whales from your very own deck back at the cottage or even from the dining room table! Other area special events include the Wooden Boat Show in April, the Annual Fleet of Flowers in May, and a Native American Style Salmon Bake in September. For a family day trip, visit the Oregon Coast Aquarium, just 20 minutes south in Newport to discover more about the area's rich sea life.

House is right off why 101 but the view out back and sound of the water makes you immediately forget it. Wildlife in your back yard; eagles, seals and whale spouts seen from the deck daily. Amazing. Wish I could have stayed longer.
Not as advertised, beware. Broken lights no internet, bad tv, smelly and dirty.
We really loved Pirated cove cottage 1 and have stayed there mutiple times. I notice that 2 had been "remodeled" recently but the 1st cottage is by far way cozier. We unfortunately could not hear the ocean even though the views where spectacular :( We will not be staying in this cottage again, but definitely will try to get pirate cove cottage 1 booked again in the future!
It was the perfect vacation... exploring all the amazing things Oregon has to offer during the day and coming back to relax and spend the evening in the perfect cozy beach cottage. We will never stay in a hotel/motel again when visiting Oregon now that we've stayed at Pirates Cove 2. I recommend this little home to anyone planning to spend some time in Depoe Bay.
We took a last minute trip to Depoe Bay and reserved this little cottage just hours before arriving. It is right on the 101, but at least when we were there (just after New Year's Day) traffic noise wasn't a problem. This is the original house and it looks like Pirate Cove Cottage 1 was built (really very close by--they share the deck and back yard) more recently. The fixtures in the back bathroom were probably original--a footed tub and one of those old porcelain sinks that has a separate hot and cold faucet. That tub needs another shower curtain--you can't enclose the whole tub when you shower and water easily gets on the floor and/or walls, leading to a musty smell when we were there.
I called about this problem and their local contact worked very hard to make it right, finding an air filter on a Sunday morning and delivering it to us. It did help and I appreciate the effort. The kitchen was well appointed with really pretty nice pans and decent knives and a nice set of dishes--you could serve 8 or more people. We cooked breakfast and ate the other meals out.
The view out the back is simply stunning. You can sit at the table and look for whales. If you go outside you walk just a bit to a nice big deck and you can see harbor seals, cormorants and more whales from there. My daughter was disappointed that there seemed to be no way to get down to the water, but secretly I was relieved not to have to worry about that!
The wood stove now has an electric insert, with a remote control. It looks sort of cheesy but it does warm the room. The futon couch in the living room (where the 5th and 6th people would need to sleep) is maybe not the best ever--would be fine for kids, but I wouldn't put three adult couples in here. The second bathroom was too chilly thanks to an old window that wouldn't latch tightly.
The location is terrific in that you can walk to the little shopping district. We had fudge from Fuddy Duddy's (better with a little salt) and two meals at the Sea Hag. Our whale watching trip with Dockside Charters was the highlight of our trip. Well, that and the tide pools at Yaquina. Oh, and the Tide Pool bar that is very close by has excellent pizza.
I'm not sure we would come again because my husband's allergies made him uncomfortable the first night, but it is a lovely little place and the price is right. (Note that for a short stay the cleaning fee can increase the cost a surprising amount. It was still a good deal.)
The cottage was exactly as shown in the website pics, including the awesome views. It's on a busier street than we expected (the main street through town), but that makes it just a very short walk down the street to the restaurants, pubs and shopping. Loved the wood-burning fire stove, especially during storms.
