About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

The 'Great Escape' has three bedrooms, two and one-half bathrooms, a kitchen/great room and large bay-/ocean-front deck.

The great room faces the bay/ocean and has lots of windows and comfortable furniture, where you can sit for hours reading a book or just watching the changing tides. The gourmet kitchen has granite counters, an island and modern appliances. The dining room table seats 10 comfortably. You will be amazed at the changing land, bay and sea scape in front of you. There is also a large stone fireplace and HDTV.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, the second bedroom has a queen bed, and a third bedroom has two twin beds that can be converted to a king. We have an inflatable bed available to sleep 1 more in the great room. The bathrooms in The Great Escape are large and have granite countertops and slate tile throughout.

This home has the high-end construction and amenities that our guests have come to enjoy. This home is located next to two other homes (VRBO listings 401945 and 408894). All three homes can be rented together for family reunions.

You can enjoy long walks on the beach both north and south. To the south you can walk to the town of Netarts, the jetty for the boat launch and the Schooner for lunch or dinner. To the north, you can walk to the town of Oceanside for coffee at Brewing in the Wind, lunch/dinner at Roseanna's or just to take in the beauty. This is a great launching spot for the Three Capes driving loop, day trips north to as far as Cannon Beach, or south as far as Lincoln City. Golf and Wine Tasting are within an hour drive. 

Weekly Saturday to Saturday rentals only for July/August. No Pets Allowed. There is also plenty of parking.

About The Owner

We live in the Seattle area. We love to gather with family and friends in Netarts for outdoor fun and indoor relaxation.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Netarts

Netarts is a very relaxing, beautiful place. We bought the land and built in 2004 after friends of ours had done so a year earlier.

What makes this house unique

We love family gatherings, hanging out reading, talking, playing games, watching the tides flow in and out of the bay; fishing in nearby streams/bays, crabbing in Netarts Bay and feasting on crab; and taking long walks on the beach or hikes on the nearby trails.

Beautiful Beachfront Home with Amazing Views
average rating of 4.9545455 based on 22 reviews

Beautifully decorated, clean, well stocked, gorgeous beach with bay and ocean frontage.

  • 5 of 5

It will be hard to put into words our enjoyment while staying at 'The Great Escape'. The house is really nice, tastefully furnished and decorated, exceptionally clean and well stocked. We did not want for a thing and were quite cozy the entire trip. The view from this house is amazing! We saw sea lions basking on the peninsula, and lots of clams shooting water up through the sand as we took walks on the pristine beach. We also loved using the fire pit in the backyard complete with places to sit as we roasted marshmallows. The property manager, Kim, was very accommodating and went our of her way to make sure we had what we needed and were happy there. We would definitely recommend The Great Escape to anyone who likes the finer side of a beach trip. We made some great memories with our grandchildren and hope to come back again soon. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us Susan!

Great stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd Xmas my 2 sons and I have spent in this lovely house. The 3 bedrooms are comfortable, and as for the entrance into the hall with the ocean spread out in front of takes your breath away every time.

Happy Camp is a lovely peaceful little coast village. Quiet and gentle. You don't hear anything but the waves when the tide is in, and seabirds when the tide is out.

We always stock up on food and drink in the large Safeway in Tillamook on the way out, since none of us want to leave even for a short time. We are too busy sitting on the deck watching happy dogs and their people frolicking on the sandy beach.

repeat visit

  • 5 of 5

This was thirteenth summer stay for our family of six, and the beauty of the site and house never disappoint. The house continues to look like new, and it is better equipped than any other rental property we have ever experienced, and we have been travelling for many years.

Beautiful home, just as discribed

  • 4 of 5

The home is well equipped and spacious. Close to many of our favorite things to do as we come to this area often. I would certainly stay here again and would recommend it to family and friends. The early morning walks on the beach were wonderful. Most of the time I had the beach to myself. As for eating places, I don't agree that the Schooner in Netarts is a good place to eat. The service is atrocious and the food wasn't much better. There are other good restaurants in the area. Well worth staying at this beach house.

Owner's Response: Sorry that the Schooner was not good. I will change my welcome email and provide the feedback to the Schooner when we go this evening. There are not many dining options in Netarts and Oceanside as you know. So glad that you enjoyed the house! Please do come again.
