Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

WELCOME! From the instant you enter the living area, you will drop your suitcases and stand in awe at the magnificent ocean and sea stacks seen a short distance below. Our condo is considered a prime location at Rainbow Rock because of its unobstructed over 180 degree view south down the Oregon Coast and west out to sea.

A truly beautiful few minutes private access walk along a well groomed winding path and over a wooden bridge to our private deeded beach will lead you to Rainbow Rock's own pot of gold, a cave with unique rock formations which are a geological wonder. When the sun is pouring into the cave colorful rocks go dancing before your very eyes! The beach has driftwood and sea stacks, star fish and mussels, and you will be able to have enjoyable long walks along the coast toward the town of Brookings. Access to this beach is private, for owners and their guests (that's you!) and more often than not, you will have it all to yourselves!

If you like whale watching, pristine tide pools, beachcombing, star gazing, sensational sunsets, hiking (the Coastal Trail is practically at your door step), and sitting in the condo or on the deck watching the waves roll in, then you've picked the perfect place--our balcony! Seasonally, whales stop to socialize with one another right in front of the Rainbow Rock condos, often staying for days at a time. They seem to love showing off by spouting and flipping their tails up in the air, almost like they are inviting you to come play. There is a lookout place just below our condo on Highway 101 (the Coastal Highway) where people pull over to whale watch. The fantastic Harris Beach State Park, just a mile or so away, has a group of locals who offer whale watching tips during winter migration to Mexico where, in the warmer waters of Baja, their babies are born.

Our condo is comfortable and family friendly. It is exceptionally CLEAN and well equiped with furnished linens and kitchen appliances. A gas BBQ is at the ready and a Jen Air stove has a grill. Everything from a popcorn popper to a breadmaker is available for your comfort and use. The master bedroom has its own bathroom and there is also a guest bathroom close to the guest bedroom. The guest bedroom has a double bed and a single bed, the master bedroom has a king size bed, and there is a hide-a-bed in the living room. Pillows are all in protective covers as are the mattresses.

The ocean can be seen from most rooms in the condo, exceptions are the bathrooms and the guest bedroom which overlooks the Rainbow Rock complex. The rhythmic sound of the ocean can be heard from the living, masterbedroom, and kitchen areas, especially when the sliding glass doors and windows are open, adding to the atmosphere of being at the fabulous Oregon Coast. From this condo highway traffic is not heard so you can enjoy the deck while reading, visiting or just watching the exciting ocean scene. This is a top floor (3rd) end unit affording all the privacy you could want.

Keywords: Ocean front condo, gated community, private beaches, beautiful setting, easy pathway to beach, Coastal trail behind property, close to town activities, golf, hiking & fishing.

About Nancy Vogel

We have greatly enjoyed our condo for the past decade. Until we retired in 2006, we were able to spend many long weekends, an easy drive from our home in California. It was always such a nice break from my husbands busy medical practice to relax for awhile at Rainbow Rock. Crabbing down at the wharf in Harbor, just across the bridge from Brookings and visiting local parks and beaches are what we like to do. We also love the nearby Redwood groves, forests and lighthouses along the Southern Oregon coast.

Nancy Vogel purchased this condo in 2002

Why Nancy Vogel chose Brookings

We love the Oregon Coast! We also have a large family and wanted to provide a place for them to enjoy. We had looked at many possibilities up and down the coast and liked Brookings best. This area of the Oregon coast is called the banana belt because of its warmer weather. Brookings is big enough for good places to eat and fun things to do but small enough to not feel hurried. It is close to wonderful things to see like the Redwoods and small port towns. It is a great location and on the ocean, couldn't ask for more! Our grandchildren find lots to do here and love to come visit us.....that's a big plus!

What makes this condo unique

Serenity, beauty, comfortable, safe gated community, nice people to meet, short walk to the beach through a lovely wooded area that is well kept, close to town, fishing, for starters. Wild blackberries grow along the mountain pathway below the condo and we enjoy picking them to eat and bake a pie. The Coastal Trail by the condo leads to a lookout over the ocean via a wooded pathway that crosses a little bridge, It is a nice walk through pines and ferns.

Very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed being able to watch the ocean while relaxing in the living room and while eating our meals at the dinning room table. The sound of the ocean in the bedroom was very relaxing too.

The condo was very clean and comfortable. We slept good, waking up ready for another day of fun while hiking local trails and combing the beach.

The path to the private beach was an easy walk - the beach itself was beautiful.

Thank you for opening your place up for others to enjoy. We hope to return in the near future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for opening conversation about making our place available to others. We originally kept our place to ourselves, for family to enjoy, but when we retired two days drive away things changed. We value the women who care for our condo, and not only know how to keep it clean, but genuinely have vacationers interest in mind. Besides that, we are convinced that we have the very best view on the Oregon Coast! We look forward to your next visit!

Perfect home away from home!

This was our first time using VRBO, we have always stayed at the Beachfront Inn. Great condo, perfect views, clean, good parking. Watched whales from dining room and living room. Great walk to the private beach. Looking forward to returning again soon.

Owner's Response: Really, you must experience our private beach, which comes complete with a cave to explore. The cave is a geological wonder with its outstanding rock formations. When sunlight floods the cave, a kaleidoscope of rainbow colors can be seen....thus the name Rainbow Rock.

Beautiful View!

  • 4 of 5

The weather didn't cooperate with our trip to the coast, but we couldn't have asked for a better spot to watch the wind, waves and rain from. We'd love to visit again when we can sit out on the deck and walk down to the beach.

Owner's Response: "The ocean white with foam" is what we see from every room but one in our condo! Some people are LUCKY enough to be there when the storms are raging, the fireplace if flickering, and that exceptional view follows them as they move from room to room.
