Lincoln City Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 pillowtop queen beds-- one in master, one in suite, 2 full baths

Remodeled top-to-bottom in Spring 2014! This extra large Sea Gypsy Condo is a ground-level, oceanfront junior suite with master bedroom and two full baths. At 825 square feet, Betta's Cove is the largest unit on the ground floor and offers lots of space for you and your family to enjoy the ocean view. Full size fireplace, wireless internet, cable TV and DVD players in both rooms; full kitchen with dishwasher, dining table and chairs, and breakfast bar that seats 3. You're just ten steps away from the sand or the indoor saltwater pool and sauna.

Our condo is rented as a suite, which includes a separate bedroom and two full baths. Beautifully furnished with fireplace, full kitchen and all the amenities. Let this be your home away from home for a time of relaxation and reconnecting with family and friends.

The ocean is right outside and provides a perfect back drop for conversation, games and walks. Step out and enjoy the grass lawn immediately outside your sliding door, or just steps to the beach. Right on the D-River and a short walk up the beach to the tide pools.

This condo is perfect for girls weekends, romantic getaways, family gatherings, or quiet times of rejuvenation. This is the largest ground-floor unit at the Sea Gypsy!

About Matt Harris

My grandparents were owners at the Sea Gypsy since the day it was built in 1971. When I was a kid, they purchased unit 108, which became our default family vacation spot. I have so many great memories of our family trips to Lincoln City, from huge family reunions to quick weekend getaways from our home in Portland. We spent countless hours digging in the sand, playing on the rocks, and eating steamer clams at Kyllo's. My grandparents would often stay the entire month of January at the condo, enjoying the winter stormy weather of the Oregon Coast.

Matt Harris purchased this condo in 1993

Why Matt Harris chose Coastal Oregon

This condo is really a "home away from home" for our family. We've tried to make it cozy and happy for our guests and for our family. You can't beat the location, only a few steps down to the sand from the front door. And on those stormy Lincoln City days, it's a great place to bundle up inside and spend time together. We love this place and we hope you will too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful, cozy and charming place. The view and closeness of the ocean made the stay more perfect. Thank you for thinking of the small things (beach toys for kids, chairs for the beach, movies, musics, books and a telescope for stargazing.) We have enjoyed our stay very much...

Sea Gypsy condo great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as described. Roomy, comfortable and 10 steps from the beach. We have never stayed in a place with such easy access to the beach. The condo was, as advertised fully stocked with all the necessary equipment, kitchenware, linens, dishes, appliances etc. We were pleasantly surprised to find it also stocked with spices and other food items that did not require refrigeration, great stuff. The pool and sauna were a wonderful bonus and easy to access. The beds were very comfortable as well. This was our first time here but I'm sure it won't be the last. The owner was exceptionally helpful and answered all our questions prior to arriving very quickly, he made us feel very welcome.

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed here for a "Girls' Weekend" and went to see The Monkees at the casino. The condo is fantastic. It looks a little old from the outside, but don't let that deter you. The inside of the condo was way beyond our expectations. The fact that it had two bathrooms worked out great. We were blessed with gorgeous weather and enjoyed several walks on the beach, which is just a few steps away. The condo was very clean, had everything we could possibly need (including two comfy recliners that we both fell asleep in after a hard day's worth of shopping!). There was plenty of parking. We didn't use the pool or spa, so I can't comment on that. It was a little warm, and fans would have been a great addition. The only downside was that it is a ground unit, so you have people above you, and you can hear them walking around. But that is to be expected. I would not hesitate to recommend this condo to our friends (in fact, I already have). You won't regret it! Jennifer

Spacious ground-floor...Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We love the roominess of Betta's Cove, and the unit was clean and comfortable. It is well-equipped for families, with lots of games, beach equipment, a very wide selection of music CDs to play on the stereo player, as well as many movies and books to enjoy. Easy beach access and a location near many stores, shops, and places to eat make this a very desirable place to stay. The kitchen is set up for cooking just about any type of meal and is equipped for serving several people (so you don't need to wash dishes after every meal). The owner is very accommodating and accessible. This was our 3rd stay in this condo, and we plan to book it again!

Bigger than expected!

  • 5 of 5

Betta's Cove was GREAT!!! The place was bigger than I expected, it really is right on the ocean. The condo was clean and fully furnished, we just bought food from the grocery. The pool was an added bonus. It was a great trip and we will definitely use it again!

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We felt like we won the lottery on this VRBO rental! I felt like all the comforts of home were there along side immediate access to the beach. Little noisy at times with people going up the stairs or walking above, but nothing outside the normal of any other hotel. We loved it there and hope to return again soon.
