About Jim Fazio

Steve Matiaco of Forest Hills Builders worked in the Forest Grove area and on the coast for twelve years. When he came across this property, the view was what caught his eye. He purchased the property, cleared a portion of it and carefully constructed the home where it would capture the panoramic view of Netarts Bay and the surrounding mountains. In 2013, Jim & Dawn Fazio of Moscow, Idaho, joined Steve as partners and in 2015 became its managers with family friend Greg Sands as the local representative. All love and enjoy the peaceful setting, panoramic views and nearby coastal features.

Jim Fazio purchased this house in 2007

Wonderful place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of seventeen people stayed at this beautiful house for three days and two nights. We all really enjoyed spending time in this, fully equipped for vacation, house. The house was very clean and well furnished. Each one of us had a comfortable place to sleep and we all fit just fine. The kitchen was big and spacious, which made it easy to prepare large meals and serve a big party of people. The living room sat comfortably our whole group, we used the couches and chairs. We also really enjoyed the backyard and the wonderful landscaping, as well as the large patio. Having Tillamook factory nearby, was very convenient to shop for presents and souvenirs. Oceanside Beach was only 10 minutes away, which made it super easy to get away and go for a walk. Also, the property owner was very communicative and helpful. Overall, we would really recommend this beautiful place to anyone who wants have a fun and memorable getaway. This place well exceeded our expectations and we sure hope to be back soon!

Thanksgiving weekend

  • 4 of 5

Great vacation house, well stocked kitchen for a thanksgiving feast. Beautiful property lots of great walking, hiking trails nearby, crabbing in the bay as well. Great oyster place just a little ways down the road to buy fresh oysters. There were 8 adults that stayed here and we had plenty of room to eat and play games downstairs, however if it's raining sideways like it was for 3 days, the only place to watch football or a movie was up in the loft and there is only one couch, no chairs and no food or beverage allowed up there. It was not easy for 8 adults to watch tv, I would suggest the owner get a couple of sofas as there was plenty of room for them. Also would have been nice to have a coffee table in the downstairs living room. If the weather had been nicer I guess we wouldn't have needed those amenities but hey it's the Oregon coast, it rains...

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Even more wonderful than we expected it to be! Breathtaking views and beautiful landscaping. Spacious and attractive layout. Well stocked kitchen and cupboards. Plenty of room for our large group. Extra tables and chairs in the garage. High chair and kid chairs. Safe area for children to play while supervised. Driveway gate can be shut to encourage children to stay away from the road. Hose in back yard for washing off sand from the beach. Large back patio with pleasant views. Plenty of room for parking of 5+ vehicles.

Hiking trail was an impressive and enjoyable feature.

Owner was extremely accommodating and replied quickly when we had questions.

We came because of a wedding in the area, and I hope that we can find an excuse to come back again because we enjoyed it so much!

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family had our biennial reunion here, and it was excellent. We were 4 siblings (couples) and our parents, and 5 adult kids from the next generation. The 5 bedrooms were very roomy and the landing had room for the two extra couples on futons. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking gear and even some basic spices and other basics. The yard was extensive and nicely kept, and the flowers holding off the elk nicely (ask about their early experience). Tillamook was 15 minutes away for groceries and other necessities (like clamming gear). Recommended!

Memorial Day with Family & Friends

  • 5 of 5

Three families of four enjoyed a wonderful stay at the beautiful Retreat at Whiskey Creek. The home is well equipped, modern and comfortable. The grounds were perfectly manicured and allowed for everything from quiet strolls and bird watching to touch football matches. Would definitely return!

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Eleven sorority sisters had our annual getaway at Whiskey creek. It was a beautiful home, lovely big bedrooms, well equipped kitchen and a cozy fireplace for evening games and conversation.

It was nice to have this house as a hub to travel up and down the coast. Thanks for the use of such a lovely home. Sisters of Xi Gamma Alpha
