About the property

Beach House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Beautiful Face Rock Views - Your beach house ON the dunes... Enjoy the spectacular views provided by Mother Nature.

A classic beach house with a unique natural location.

With easy beach access, step out the door to the dunes and one of the most beautiful beaches on the Oregon coast. You can exit the house and be immediately on the dunes and beach. Get up early in the morning and go for a walk or run along the beach and you get a sense you're in a very special place.

This is Bandon’s most noted beach; the site of several television films and can be seen on Bandon beach postcards. Be sure to bring your camera along for some spectacular photos.

Just 5 minutes from Bandon's charming Old Town, and 15 minutes to championship play at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort.

This classic beach house sits on the sand below the cliffs of Beach Loop Drive with its breathtaking views of Face Rock, rolling waves, and occasional beachcombers. The property extends to the ocean water line.

Bandon Sand Castle has earned outstanding reviews by golfers, storm watchers, and beachcombers alike.

Recent comments received from guests:

"We appreciated the relative solitude and just a ton of wildlife."

"One of the things we've grown to really enjoy about the property is something we hadn't really thought through as much as some others might have, is the real sense of connection of nature and awesome sense of being a part of nature."

"Incredible water views, and the beach is a fantastic place to hang out."

Why Deborah Smith chose Coastal Oregon

We looked at a lot of properties and we decided this was the location for a house for us.

The remarkable views and ideal location were most important. After completely remodeling the home, we feel we have a special vacation beach house for guests to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

There are very few Bandon homes on the beach. Our beach house is very comfortable, well maintained, updated, with incredible views of waves, rocks, ocean and sky. And, with so many things to see and do nearby, we think you'll have a wonderful time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Debbie. We made it home Monday night. We really enjoyed our stay and thought the house was wonderful. There was no one at the other two houses so we had the whole area to ourselves. The view is truly priceless and the proximity to the beach was appreciated! We found beautiful agates, jasper, and petrified wood. I found no other fossils, but enjoyed the time spent searching.

Bob and I rode horses (see us below), visited three light houses, found dozens of starfish at Cape Arago, got jam from Misty Meadows, visited the wildlife park and played with a baby lion, bear and leopard. We explored the beach for hours. He played three of the courses at Bandon Dunes and loved every minute of it. I drove to Brookings one day to meet a friend for lunch.

We enjoyed the Fish Market, Tony's Crab Shack, Wheelhouse and Alloro. We ate at Bandon Dunes, too. I wish we'd made it to The Loft restaurant but it didn't work out. We tried to see all the sunsets from "our beach house." :-) The light on the beautiful yellow gorse, the beach and rock faces was different every day.

I'm editing photos and will share some of them with you when I finish. Sometimes it takes a while, but I have some FABULOUS shots to share with you.

Thanks again for a great home rental.

Best Regards,

Bob and I were the only customers for the horse ride on Friday morning.

Best Location in Bandon

  • 5 of 5

After three times staying at the Sand Castle, I cannot recommend it highly enough. I visit Bandon around once per year for golf, and have also stayed at the BD Resort. This location is far superior -- much more comfortable, bigger, and great proximity to the excellent food in town. It's only 15 minutes to golf at the resort, which will now allow you to make advanced tee times when staying elsewhere. The location on the beach is spectacular -- just as the photos detail. Best location in town!

Great place right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

A very nice beach house. The separate downstairs apartment was a bonus for grandma and grandpa. Good place to hang out and cook, just steps from the beach. Very nice owners, can't wait to go back.

Absolutely Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a 7-nights stay at this fabulous house. The view is truly stunning with many large windows to view the sand dunes, beach and waves. We never got tired of watching the ocean and it was about a one minute walk to actually be on the beach. The house was spotless with all the amenities for a comfortable stay. We rented the upper and lower units, which made it very comfortable when our friends came to stay for 3 nights. We are storm watchers and had a couple of days of absolutely wonderful storms to watch from the house, but we had some nice weather to do sightseeing in and around Bandon. Also, the owner was a delight to communicate with and even had the property manager call us to make sure we were prepared for the stormy weather. We really enjoyed the Wheelhouse Restaurant and the Bandon Fish Market. There were other restaurants we would have liked to try but we ran out of time, plus the house was so lovely and comfortable that we ate some of our meals there. It truly is the dream beach house!

You cannot beat the view from the top floor of Sand Castle!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful week at this beautiful house on the beach right next to Face Rock beach. How fun it is to be able to walk right on to the beach from the front door of your vacation home! My son and his wife and toddler had privacy in the bottom unit with its own kitchen and bathroom. Everything is there that you need for a comfortable stay. I highly recommend!

Loved this place. Immaculate and exactly as described. Owners are super easy with whom to deal - views are fabulous, everything works perfectly and the town is perfect. Home run.

Car: recommended

This waterfront beach house sits ON the sand, a beautiful & serene location for your vacation. You'll have views of an ever changing mural provided by Mother Nature. A step out the front door & you're on the dunes. There are NO STAIRS to the beach. This pristine beach is a perfect location for walking with your morning coffee or enjoying an evening stroll. You'll have fun beachcombing for glass floats, interesting driftwood, & sand dollars. Sand Castle's beach is the most famous in Bandon, the site for commercials and postcards . The sleeping arrangements have been planned for families, but works very well for golfing groups too. Rent the entire house, or upstairs only. Short walk to Face Rock Lookout where you can view the beach house below. Old Town is 5 min. away with many shops and dining; walking distance to Lord Bennet's restaurant, 10 minutes to Bandon Dunes Resort & Bandon Crossings Golf courses, 5 minutes to riding stables and more. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

Other Activities: Wild Animal Game Park, Bird Preserve, South Slough wildlife preserve

Golf: Sand Castle is the perfect place to stay if you are coming to Bandon to play golf at the top rated Bandon Dunes Golf Resort or one of the other top rated Bandon golf courses. Just 10 minutes to the resort, and you can't find a more comfortable spot to relax after a round of golf. Walking distance to the Old Bandon Course on Beach Loop Drive. Spectacular views of ocean and famous rock formations!
