About Winter Chung

Winter and Neil purchased this property in 2009 to be used as a getaway from their daily lives in Portland, Oregon. After completely remodeling the cottage, they began renting it so that others could also enjoy the beautiful Oregon Coast.

Winter Chung purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Winter Chung chose South Beach

The Newport area is the most beautiful and scenic part of the Oregon Coast in our opinion. There is abundant wildlife as well as the conveniences of a nearby city. Whales and seals have been viewed from the cottage. Seagulls and pelicans fly by the windows and float in the wind. The privacy granted by having a house on the ocean cannot be matched by a hotel or condo.

What makes this cottage unique

The house is built in the 1960's, but has been completely remodeled with tasteful, modern decor, yet keeping some of the original charm. It is challenging to find modern properties on the Oregon Coast, and this cottage will not disappoint.

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I flew into Portland for an Antique Show at the Expo Center and then headed to the coast for a couple of peaceful and relaxing days at Sea Gem. We have traveled to the Oregon Coast numerous times and try to stay somewhere different each time. That has been a 'rule' for years now, to always stay some place different, but......after staying at Sea Gem we are re-thinking that 'rule' of ours, and even started planning for our next trip that will hopefully include Sea Gem. The cottage was exactly as described and pictured. The views and sound of the ocean were incredible. Although there are other properties around you and the cottage is right on Hwy 101, you feel very secluded. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. They definitely have made the best use of space and have managed to make the place 'feel' larger than it really is. The path and stairs to the beach were cool and very managable. That feeling of seclusion continues as you head down to the beach. Not sure if it was due to the time of year, but we rarely saw anyone else on the beach and we had awesome weather! Thanks again for sharing Sea Gem with us. We enjoyed it so much!

I left a chunk of my heart at the Sea Gem

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked the Sea Gem for our honeymoon and it could not have been more perfect! Cottage is EVEN BETTER than pictured. Such care went into the design - although adorably tiny, the open floor plan and large picture windows make it feel spacious. The beautiful decor flows seamlessly with the breathtaking views. It was clean, modern, ever so comfortable, and high end! (We so appreciated the extra mile the owners went from the luxury sheets to the provided spa-quality shower gel, shampoos, etc, and even going as far as to provide a brand new lufa sponge!)

We knew we had the perfect house picked out for a romantic getaway, but never could have understood until we arrived how perfectly situated the house was for adventures up and down the coast. Perfectly positioned close, but not too close, to the bustling fishing town of Newport, we had more wonderful dining and entertainment choices than we had meals or time. We spent half of our week traveling north and south, traveling the scenic coastal highway 101, and spent the 2nd half of our time in perfect, blissful isolation with nothing but the drama of the ocean and wildlife for company. We fell in love with Oregon, with Newport, and my heart is already aching to return to this slice of heaven at the Sea Gem. Winter and Niel are the BEST hosts and thought of it all. I am so grateful to them for sharing this heaven they've created that I'd probably cry if I got to hug them. THANK YOU!

just like home

  • 5 of 5

From the minute I saw Sea Gem on vrbo I knew this was the perfect spot for us. Comfortable and relaxing. It had everything we needed. I will be recommending it to my friends and look forward to our next visit. I am now spoiled and can't imagine staying anywhere else on the Oregon coast. Do not miss Cape Perpetua when you are here, it is amazing! If the weather would have been nicer this would have been the best summer holiday ever. We will return without a doubt.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Sea Gem Cottage was a great choice for our recent Oregon Coast vacation. Location was perfect for day trips both North and South on the coast and for visiting nearby Newport. Loved sitting outside watching the sunsets and the ocean. Very comfortable home with all the amenities.

An incredible glimpse at true relaxation

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I can't believe I forgot to write a review for the Sea Gem after we spent time there!

I've come back to this listing a dozen times since our stay to reminisce about this most beautiful spot. From the moment we pulled up, my husband and I were enthralled with the views. The first night we stayed awake late into the night while we took photos of the night sky - the air is so clear that you can see the Milky Way!

The cabin is perfectly situated in between several points of interest: Thor's Well & Cape Perpetua, South Beach Fish Market (we ate there nearly every night!), Cook's Chasm... the cabin is a wonderful home base to a world of wonderful sighs and sounds, and though it's located just off the highway, it's private and secluded.

We've been dying to come back to Oregon, and we look forward to staying here again. You can't go wrong with the Sea Gem.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Sea Gem was wonderful. The cottage was so comfortable and clean with everything we could of ever needed. The walks on the beach were peaceful and beautiful with the sun setting, very rarely seeing another person. Even though I got the flu while I was there, I spent a lot of time sitting by the window looking at the ocean and feeling blessed to have such an amazing view. The location of the cabin was perfect. We look forward to staying again in the future. Thanks for allowing us to stay at your cottage!
