Stretch by the Sea is the quintessential vacation rental, perfect for family vacations or romantic get-a-ways. Mere steps from Netarts Bay, our comfortable and cozy home features water views from each of its three levels, natural light flooding into every room, and all the comforts of home with none of the distractions. Netarts is a peaceful community south of Oceanside and west of Tillamook, Oregon, and Netarts Bay is simply a beautiful place to visit.
We're eager to share this wonderful place with you. A nice sandy beach is just a three to four minute walk down the street, as is the Netarts boat launch and the Schooner, a local restaurant and pub (try the wood-fired pizza). The bay itself is fantastic for exploring, clamming and crabbing. The big ocean surf is less than a five minute drive (or 10 walk along the beach) towards Oceanside.
The main (middle) floor of the house features an open kitchen/living area and a bathroom. Our cozy living room has a wood burning fireplace, a reading nook and a wall of view windows. You can even watch the Netarts Bay scene as you cook in our well stocked kitchen. The living area opens to a balcony where you can enjoy the view and smell the ocean air.
There are two bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor. The master bedroom has a great water view, vaulted ceiling, a comfortable queen bed, and serene color scheme. The second bedroom also features a vaulted ceiling, a quality queen bed, fun colors and plenty of natural light. The second floor hall is home to a portion of our eclectic book collection and a reading bench, to enjoy on lazy inside days.
The bottom floor is a den/bunk room. This is where you'll find the cable TV and DVD player along with our other electronics. For sleeping, we have a unique bunk area built into the wall. The bunk area has 2 levels with a queen & a double mattress on each - the bunk area alone can sleep 8 people.
The house is family-friendly. We have games, toys, a small stroller, and a pack-n-play crib, vintage wooden high-chair, stair gate, etc. There is also a twin mattress stashed upstairs to accommodate youngsters who like to sleep in their parents room. The circular fire-pit outside in our yard is great for those hot dog and marshmallow roasts.
Even though our home is family friendly, it is also great place for a romantic get-a-way. Beach-combing on pleasant days or cozying up by the fire during a coastal storm keep us coming back! Bring your favorite music to play on our Ipod dock.
We've made every effort to create a cozy and inviting space, and we look forward to sharing it with you.

'Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home at Netarts. We had a wonderful time, weather cooperated and the crabbing was great! We hope to be able to return in the future and enjoy another vacation. Your home is so comfortable and well furnished. The bed mattresses are wonderful and the kitchen is well equipped. It is one of the nicest vacation rentals we have ever rented.' Dee & Jim
'I really enjoyed staying there. I felt at home, which is rare when staying in someone else’s house. There are a ton of games, which we played quite a few of. The amenities you offer are like no other rental I have experienced. I loved how open the house is and all the sleeping area’s available. The view is gorgeous and we were literally a block from the beach. This has been one of the nicest rentals I have yet to stay in. We’ll be recommending your home to our friends and family. Suggestions: Keep doing what you are doing J I would not change anything.' Jessica

I am the manager/shared owner of 'Stretch'. My husband and I are both retired pharmacists that live in eastern Washington but with 2 grandkids in Portland we make frequent trip to the west side. My daughter and son-in-law are co-owners. It's a family affair!
We enjoy visiting the Oregon Coast with our Portland family and friends from western & eastern Washington. We especially enjoy Netarts for it's beautiful bay and quaint, quiet community. We chose this particular home for it's great views, plentiful natural light, cozy fireplace and comfortable arrangement.
Watching the Bay from the cottage windows. Walking less than a block for a tasty meal at Schooner's or enjoying a beach walk north to Oceanside for other dining choices. Playing games or reading by the fire on stormy days.
