About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4)


Heart of the Hill Cottage is a high quality 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath Cottage, with panoramic views of the Oceanside beach and Three Arch Rocks, a National Game Preserve.

All New in 2010, the Cottage has beautiful reclaimed wood ceilings, granite counters, and glass tile back splashes throughout. There are 2 ocean facing decks, with stainless cable railing, and a 3rd deck, also with ocean view, off the kitchen entry.

The Cottage sits directly above the 2 car garage. Stairs lead from the garage up to the entry. On the main floor is the kitchen, dining, living, and 1/2 bath. A 32'' flatscreen TV with built in DVD, and WiFi are in the living area. The upstairs has 2 bedrooms, one with queen bed, one with 2 twin beds, and the full bath, with a heated tile floor, and a shower/tub.

There are fabulous views from both bedrooms and all living spaces. It was designed with a maximum of 4 people in mind, either 2 couples, or perhaps parents with 2 kids.

The master, front, bedroom has vaulted wood ceilings with full height windows. Awakening to this amazing view will make you smile, guaranteed. The 2nd bedroom, with the twin beds, also has a great, more southerly ocean view. The heated tile floor in the bathroom is a real treat, especially in the middle of the night, or before and after bathing. My wife told me I was going to love it...

The Cottage is not large, about 850 sq.ft. on the 2 floors, but it is very well designed, efficient, warm, and cozy. The enameled propane fireplace in the living area adds great physical, and aesthetic, warmth. It is an amazing little place.

The town of Oceanside, only 90 minutes from Portland, is also unique. Built like an amphitheater, this 250 resident village is off the beaten path, and has fabulous beaches, vistas, and a tranquil natural setting. Two restaurants and one coffee shop are the only commercial establishments. Quiet, peaceful, beautiful.

We're about 10 miles west of Tillamook, the cheese town located on a large Bay, and surrounded by great forests, a mecca for fishermen, boaters, and hikers, with activities nearby for all interests.

If you're looking for luxury in a comfortable setting with unparalleled views, our Heart of the Hill Cottage will fit your desires.

Spectacular views, peaceful location, charming house.

  • 5 of 5

I think there is no better view in Oceanside. I felt like we were floating over the beach. The house itself is clean and well cared for. It is so comfortable, we had to pry ourselves away to even walk the 5 minutes to the beach.

Truly beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This was an immaculate wonderful home nestled right in the hill above oceanside. The views were stunning. It's about a 5 minute walk down to the beach. Waking up to these amazing views was an unforgettable experience! We will be coming back soon!

Million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son and I spent three nights at the cottage mid June. It was an awesome property with some of the best views from Oceanside. We loved the rooms and accommodations. This property is best for a romantic getaway or small family vacation. The cottage is sufficiently set up for cooking but you may wish to bring a few of your own gadgets. Convenient grocery shopping is only a few miles away in Tillamook. Oceanside is a great central destination that allows easy travel North and South for coastal explorations. We can't wait to stay here again in the future.

Girls week away

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 2 of my friends stayed at this cottage for 1 week in July to August, 2012. We were delighted with the rooms, the view, and the location. We were lucky to have wonderful sunny weather. The beach was full of sand dollars, star fish and we could see sea lions from our balcony. There are many hikes in the area, several with beach access. The house is about a 5 minute walk to the beach, tucked up on a hill with all the homes in the area. The house was cozy and bright with big windows. There were very helpful instructions for finding and using everything. The house was clean and the appliances and heating worked perfectly. We had a wonderful time and would stay here again.

Charming cottage with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Oceanside was the last stop on our tour of Oregon. What a finale. We loved Oregon, we stayed in some fabulous places and we hope to be back soon, and in particular we want to come back to this cottage. It had everything we wanted - well equipped, attractive, comfortable, spotless, and a wonderful view. It was like a little haven up above the beach. We had some great trips up and down the coast, and close to Oceanside there are some lovely spots, but we particularly enjoyed sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine and watching all the activity on the beach, and the wonderful sunsets. I would highly recommend this cottage, as long as you can cope with a few stairs.

Comfortable, clean, and contemporary

  • 5 of 5

This house has an amazing view. It's comfortable, clean and very well remodeled. Kitchen is well equipped. Everything is new and nice. It is very small though, perfect for a couple's getaway. Easy walk into Oceanside or to the beach. Very well kept for a beach house.
