About Winter Chung
Winter and Neil purchased this property in 2009 to be used as a getaway from their daily lives in Portland, Oregon. After completely remodeling the cottage, they began renting it so that others could also enjoy the beautiful Oregon Coast.

Why Winter Chung chose South Beach
The Newport area is the most beautiful and scenic part of the Oregon Coast in our opinion. There is abundant wildlife as well as the conveniences of a nearby city. Whales and seals have been viewed from the cottage. Seagulls and pelicans fly by the windows and float in the wind. The privacy granted by having a house on the ocean cannot be matched by a hotel or condo.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage was built in the 1960's, but has been completely remodeled with tasteful, modern decor, yet keeping some of the original charm. It was then added on to in 2016 to include a loft and second bedroom. It is challenging to find modern properties with beach access on the Oregon Coast, and this cottage will not disappoint.

We love this property! Staying right on the edge of the ocean was amazing. The privacy of the patio made it feel like we had the ocean view to ourselves. The beds were very comfortable. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The location was perfect being 5 minutes from Newport. It was the prefect place to rest, relax, reflect and spend quality time together.
My husband and I spent the month of August here, avoiding the hot Texas sun. We owned a summer home in Newport for a few years and this was our first trip back after 4 years. It was great to revisit all of our favorite memories. This house was a good choice for our stay.
We loved it here! Beautiful house! Beautiful view! This was our favorite part of the trip and would definitely return!!
Spectacular location and ocean access and views
It does not take long to fall in love with this quaint beach house. The location on the ocean is incredible. The waves drown out the traffic from the highway and it's conveniently located with a short drive to Newport for groceries. Don't miss out on the fresh whole dungeness crab at South Beach Fish Market just up the road. We get ours "cleaned" and packed in ice and take them home to eat. Amazing! We got to see several whales on this trip from the patio during the late afternoons, and the sunsets and waves are mesmerizing. We are so grateful to the owners for sharing their awesome beach house!
We loved staying here. Everything about Sea Gem was perfect, so comfortable and well thought out! The beach it is on is incredible. Six nights was too short
This was either our 6th or 7th time staying at the Sea Gem and the property never disappoints! I highly recommend to anyone looking for an amazing oceanfront vacation.
