About the property

Sleeps up to 6 people in 2 queen and 3 twin beds. 1 bedroom, loft and 1 bath.

This A-Frame has been completely remodeled into a charming beach house. It is right across the street from the beach in the Jetty area, which means no need to access a staircase to get to the beach which is the case in most of Bandon. It's also a short .4 mile walk to the best shopping and restaurants in Old Town Bandon.

It sleeps up to 6 people, but you have to love each other cause it’s small and cozy. We furnished it as a cozy home and it is completely stocked with everything you need. You are welcome to use anything you find including rain boots, crabbing equipment and kitchen food staples. There is also a Sony 40' LCD TV and Bose stereo/DVD player with MP3 player hookup. We do no have cable; so bring your iPod and any DVDs you want to watch. There is also high-speed wireless internet and a washer and dryer.

About Troy Hickerson

This little beach shack has become a favorite destination for many of our friends and family. We had spent about a year renovating the original A-Frame structure and have transformed it into a charming cozy home. The Beach Shack invites an intimate experience with your family or friends that is more unique than simply staying in a traditional home. You will definitely feel as if you are staying in a fully stocked home and not a 'rental grade' vacation home. Feel free to make yourself at home and enjoy all that is provided.

Troy Hickerson purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Troy Hickerson chose Coastal Oregon

We originally discovered Bandon on a month long camping trip up the coast and we fell in love with the amazing beach, charming Old Town and friendly people. Bandon stood out as a unique place where we'd like to spend more time and eventually we were able to buy this amazing place on the beach only a short walk to Old Town. Hopefully you'll get a chance to enjoy Bandon as well.

What makes this cottage unique

Bandon is wonderful however most of the vacation rentals are like staying in an ordinary house. Our house is different as the remodeled a-frame is a unique spot that embraces a cozy vacation get away. It's been loved by many couples on a honeymoon as well as families with young kids. We hope you enjoy it as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Besides our honeymoon in Europe, this was our favorite vacation. The house is an ideal romantic setting to relax and enjoy the incredible beauty strolling the beach in Bandon. So much better than staying in a typically constructed house or hotel. I would highly recommend it.

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved this house. It was so homey and comfortable. It was wonderful to be close to town but close to the ocean as well. The kitchen had all the basics and then some. My girls think this should be our vacation spot every year.

Perfect location

Awesome place to stay. Perfect location for beach, old town and an easy drive north for golf. Stayed with my family but would be perfect for 4 golfers too.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Brandon Beach Shack was wonderful! It is very cozy (in a good way) and the whole family loved it. Very well appointed with everything you need and all high quality. Linens, towels kitchenware, furniture, appliances etc all very, very nice. Location is very close to beach, Old Town, walking trail to park and very quiet. Will definitely go back and highly recommend.

The L family

  • 5 of 5

We loved the beach house! We have three kids 5, 2 and 11 months. The two eldest slept upstairs in the twin beds with dad and the baby slept downstairs with mom. We use chairs to block the baby from going upstairs because the rails aren't close enough together to prevent her squeezing through. We loved the French press and coffee grinder. We picked up coffee at a local shop and loved mornings on the porch with some coffee. The kids loved the beach and played in the water (we brought a wetsuit). It was just a short walk from the house. I also walked into town and it was a good walk but totally manageable seeing as I had a baby strapped to my back. The town is so great. We ate chocolate from a local shop and bought a myrtle wood basket from the gallery as well as hit the toy store. I'll be staying here again when the opportunity to visit friends arises.

We loved this place. There were two adults and one 2 year old. The information said it could sleep 6 and it can but you may.not all be able to eat at the same time or watch a movie together. The loft bed room was great. The only problem we had was the information on the Web site said it was set up with crabbing equipment and we could not find it. We found information in a drawer the last day we were there telling us where it was. Would recommend this place to anyone.

We originally discovered Bandon on a camping trip and fell in love with the amazing beach, charming Old Town and friendly people. During a monthly long camping trip up the coast many years ago the town of Bandon stood out as a unique place where we'd like to spend more time crabbing, walking the beach and exploring the area.
