Our calendar is 100% up to date, please refer to it if you are interested!

If you are interested in booking our property, please feel free to contact me at to discuss details.

LOCATED right next to the delightful Olivia Beach neighborhood, this charming cottage is a four minute walk to Nelscott Beach. The house features a wrap-around porch and an enclosed deck with 6 PERSON HOT-TUB, picnic table, and grill. In addition to the fenced, private deck a second fenced area is ideal for keeping your four-legged friends safe and contained.

The home has WIRELESS INTERNET for Facebook and work addicts. Our UNLIMITED HOT WATER SYSTEM means no-one gets a cold shower (unless they want one!)

The large open-plan first floor offers BEAUTIFUL CONTEMPORARY DESIGN AND FURNISHINGS. The property has a gas fire place, large flat-screen TV in the living area, sound-bar, Blu-Ray DVD player with an extensive DVD collection for the whole family. We also have Nintendo Wii, iPod dock, board games, cards, and books.

The kitchen has granite counter-tops, bar-seating for four and an eight-seater dining table. Expect plenty of cooking, baking and serving dishes for your party; and for the creative cooks we have an ice-cream and waffle cone maker, a large pressure cooker, plus electric grill, coffee percolator and of course a microwave, oven, stove-top, fridge and freezer.

The downstairs utility room has a washer and dryer, and ½ bathroom. There is off-street parking for three vehicles (or two vehicles and a boat trailer).

The UPSTAIRS MASTER SUITE has a beautiful queen sleigh bed, high ceilings and en-suite bathroom with tub/shower and duel sinks (plus great water pressure!).

The second bedroom has two TWIN beds and if needed, a super-comfortable self-inflating Double bed (just plug it in and up it goes).

Our third bedroom has a DOUBLE bed and double futon, as well as a small wall mounted flat-screen TV connected to a DVD player.

In the second bathroom you’ll find another sink and tub/shower along with more of that high pressure, unlimited hot water.

Finally, our goal is for your party to have a relaxing, wonderful break. We provide plenty of towels and bedding as well as kitchen staples (cooking oil, seasonings, sugar, salt etc.). Feel free to use our kites, hula hoops, soccer and volley balls to your hearts content - just be sure to leave them for others to enjoy!

NOTE: Maximum occupancy 8 adults, total occupancy 10. These limits are strictly enforced by City of Lincoln City and if exceeded, will result in termination of rental contract.

About Katie Topping

My husband and I live in Portland with our son and daughter. My husband is a high school chemistry teacher and I work for an educational non-profit.

We love to travel, spend time with friends and family and are starting to get into hiking.

We bought the beach house and love going there. Renting it was a hard decision, but we have truly enjoyed talking to our guests and doing our best to ensure that everything is lovely for them. It's actually been fun!

Katie Topping purchased this house in 2010

Why Katie Topping chose Lincoln City

We looked at hundreds of houses once we decided to buy a beach home. But this one felt different. We loved the porch, the open plan and how close it was to the beach. We've enjoyed building the deck, putting in the fence and planting. It was also so fun to decorate! Of course, it did help that it was a new house!

What makes this house unique

We've tried to make the our beach house comfortable, clean and homey -without all the clutter we have in our full-time house!

It's wonderful to sit on the porch or in the hot tub at the end of the day and just enjoy being in a place where we can totally relax.

Great place and great value right by the beach that you can bring your furry friends to.

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! It was well stocked with everything you need. The house was so charming and lovely and so close to the beach. I loved the steps going down to it. I went up and down them for my morning workout. My four year old loved the park by the house. My furry child loved playing on the beach. I had a couple questions upon getting there and Richard and Katie were very prompt in answering me. The hot tub was nice and I liked that it had a child lock on it. The price was just right for our budget as well. Many places don't even allow pets and those that do often charge a lot. My deposit was refunded very quickly. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks Richard and Katie!

Best VRBO we have ever used. :)

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home last night. The house was really perfect as a vacation rental. It is a little walk to to beach but the home is in great shape, really well set up for a beach house. Olivia Beach is really a great spot for walks and our kids loved the rocks and tide pools that are right on the beach. The gray whales were out right off the beach every day for us to watch right there as well! We all loved the hot tub especially since this was a later trip and the weather wasn't super hot. It is pet friendly but not pet odiferous. The kitchen was really well set up and had good quality pans and pots. We ate out quite a bit but had dinner in and cooked up a nice seafood dinner. The BBQ was a really nice feature as well. Next year we hope we can book again for a return visit!

Best vacation ever. :)

Beautiful house with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for the weekend for a bachelorette getaway. The house was beautiful and we loved the kitchen and hot tub especially. Comfortable, clean, updated, and stocked with most everything you would need. Spacious enough and comfortable for the 5 adults on our trip, everyone had a bed to themselves! I would love to stay here again.
