Overview

Lincoln City Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

This beachfront condo has the lowest beach access in Lincoln City, and maybe the entire Oregon Coast.

My little slice of heaven features a full kitchen, two beds, two full bathrooms and an Internet-connected television that streams Netflix and other treats. This is Unit 214 at the historic Sea Gypsy, which I call 'The Beachelor Pad.' Read that again: It's The B-E-A-C-H-elor Pad! Although it sounds like a bachelor pad, this is a great condo for families with kids. The murphy beds in both sleeping areas fold up against the wall, giving you plenty of room to play.

Large windows in the oceanside suite give you an amazing view of the beach. Watch for harbor seals in the shallow waves below, and the waterspouts of migrating grey whales on the horizon. I've even seen a pod of orca whales heading north in the shallow waves.

My condo is 634 square feet and has two separate sleeping areas that can hold up to 5 vacationers. I've stocked the kitchen with enough cookware and dishes to meet all your culinary needs.

The immediate beach access sets the Sea Gypsy apart from other vacation spots on the Oregon coast. Play in the sand, wade in the ocean and go for one of those famous long walks on the beach. Then, at the end of the day, you're ready for some cutting edge technology and entertainment.

I've connected a Roku to my 42-inch flatscreen TV. Through it, you can stream your own accounts for Netflix, HuluPlus, HBOGO, YouTube and Pandora. You have access to thousands of movies and TV shows during your vacation.

I'm self-employed, so it's important that my Beachelor Pad is a technology-friendly vacation spot. I've installed a direct Internet connection to my condo that is password protected for your exclusive use.

However, when it's all said and done vacationers don't stay with me for the Internet or the Netflix movies. It's all about the beach right outside the front window, Mother Nature's greatest attraction. The Sea Gypsy is adjacent to the D River — the shortest river in the world. Take a 10-minute walk north of the Sea Gypsy to some natural tide pools, where you will find a wide range of sea life, including sea urchins, starfish and other surprises.

If this condo is unavailable, don't fret. Check out these other Sea Gypsy listings here on VRBO that I manage: #649665, #614463, #615331, #561168, #344713, #291358, #375817

About Troy Foster

This condo is owned by Troy Foster of Portland, Oregon.

Troy Foster purchased this condo in 2012

Why Troy Foster chose Coastal Oregon

I have been visiting the Sea Gypsy since the year I was born. I manage this condo and several more here at the Sea Gypsy for friends of mine.

The idea dawned on me recently to purchase a unit for myself and use it as a vacation rental as well as my own private getaway. If you own a business, provide a unique service or have your own private getaway, I will even consider swapping this vacation spot with you for something of equal value. Just ask.

What makes this condo unique

There is nowhere in Oregon where you can get closer to the beach.

Good Location for a Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The location right on the beach was most appreciated, but the pad is on the second floor next to the stairs, so there was some noise. The bathrooms and kitchen are nicely appointed and there is plenty of kitchen ware. However, the carpeting is very badly stained and there were no good reading lamps in either main room. If we returned we would ask for a condo away from the stairs.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ruth for choosing my condo among the many, many options in Lincoln City and the Oregon coast. You and two other recent guests have pointed out my carpet has taken a beating over the summer and needs to be cleaned or replaced. I've scheduled a professional clean 12 days from now (the soonest they can fit me in) and if that doesn't do the trick I'll be getting new carpet as soon as possible. We did do a shampoo in the spring before things got really busy, but it seems too many people having too good of a time spilled too many drinks too many times. Your feedback is appreciated.

Great place highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

The beachlorpad was great! The room was very nice really clean with a great view of the ocean just steps away from the beach. The only negative thing I could think of was the tv in the front room didn't work but overall still 5 stars. Kitchen was well stocked the room felt like I was at home. Me and my family will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Ignacio for the kind words about our cleanliness and our spectacular view. I appreciate the 5 stars even though you had trouble with the TV. I can assure you the TV does work in the front room. I'm just a phone call away if you ever have any trouble, and I put instructions in my welcome letter about how to operate it. My guess is you just got tripped up navigating inputs between cable, the Blu-ray player and the Roku. Thanks again for staying in The Beachelor Pad.

Too expensive

  • 2 of 5

Location is fantastic, but way overpriced. Carpets very dirty, some food ground in. Needs a few more pots in kitchen. No coffee filters either. Old French fries in bottom of oven drawer.Bed too soft and couch so uncomfortable we couldn't hang out on it. Fan dirty and binoculars broken.Only 2 small lamps and the other had no bulb. I've been to lots of vrbos and this one only has the beach going for it. Loud neighbors. We definitely enjoyed the kites, view and whales.

beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay and would have loved to give it a 5 star but the carpet in the living room was very dirty with big brown spots all over it. That is the only problem we had the hole time. Great place to stay otherwise. Thank You Shawn Thiessen

Owner's Response: Thanks Shawn for staying in my condo! I'm glad you enjoyed it, and I'm sorry the carpet in the front room was spotty. My condo has had nearly 100 percent occupancy in the three months prior to your stay and it's ready for a deep clean and a carpet shampoo. If I could have a re-do I would have pulled it off the market for two days in the middle of the busy season for a professional carpet clean. I appreciate your feedback!

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, could not ask for a better location. We were there for the Kite Festival, and you could see the entire thing from the window. It was perfect for our family since we had a baby that needed to nap during the day, we were still able to see everything while he slept. Comfortable beds, very clean condo, had all the kitchen items we could possibly need, nice pool, lots of parking. The two bedrooms are at opposite ends of the condo which was really nice with our little ones, we put them to bed and hung out watching TV without having to worry about the noise. The host was prompt with communications, and we had everything we needed to make our stay great. Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jocelyn for your feedback and telling other guests what they can expect when they stay in my condo. You certainly picked one of the best weekends of the year to stay in The Beachelor Pad. In addition to the Summer Kite Festival, there is a Fall Kite Festival every year around the 1st of October.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The condo was just as described. Very roomy, kitchen well equipped and wonderful view of the ocean from the huge windows. We didn't really do much while there except for relax and enjoy the beach. We didn't even turn the television on. It was very peaceful and quiet. We did not have any contact with the staff because we didn't have a need for it.

We will definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: Thanks Joanna for the kind review. My condo is definitely designed to be "roomy" as you mentioned. Both beds in each room are Murphy beds that fold up onto the wall to give you more living space. Even my dining table folds down to be stowed in the corner and out of the way. I appreciate you staying with us and all the feedback.

When you stay here, you’re a short walk from the downtown art district, several fine restaurants, taverns, antiques stores and the Tanger Outlets — Lincoln City’s No. 1 shopping attraction.

Chinooks Winds Casino is just 5 minutes away via the free shuttle (provided by the casino on weekends) or a $7 cab ride. It is about a 40 minutes by foot if you're interested in one of those famous long walks on the beach.

The Sea Gypsy is adjacent to the D River, which comes from the mouth of Devil's Lake just across the highway. Devil's Lake features a multitude of recreational opportunities from jet skiing to fishing and boats rentals. Several public parks ring the lake, and if you're coming to Lincoln City with kids we highly recommend Regatta Grounds Park with its enormous castle playground.
