About the property

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...

The Condo is very clean and stocked well. We had sufficient towels and supplies. The view is wonderful and hearing the surf was soothing. It is the closest access I have had to the beach in over 15 years. We will definitely come back. Matt was responsive to our needs. Thanks.

The property was well maintained and had everything you would need to enjoy your stay. Views from the family room were awesome. We really enjoyed the 2 chaise loungers and the pillows/blankets. Very comfortable and suitable for all ages.

Owner's Response: Hi Sherry, thanks for the review and I'm so glad you had a good time. We have tried hard to make the place comfortable and inviting—indeed it is our "home away from home" so we try to make it as cozy as possible. Let me know if there's anything we could do to make it even better for you next time. Best, Matt

Spectacular view!

Just what we needed with the surf pounding about 30-40 yards away. Close enough to view a washed up 5 foot shark from the room. One larger (both regular) bed would have been nice. Great stay through the rainy season.

Owner's Response: Hi Frank, glad you had a great time! Hope you'll come back again. I'm not sure we could fit bigger beds in there, though... they're both queen size beds. Thanks for the feedback and for the review, we really appreciate it. See you next time, –Matt

Girls' Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This was our third annual girls' weekend at Betta's Cove and it was another wonderful trip, even better this year because we stayed three nights instead of our usual two. We went antiquing, shopped the outlet stores, searched for agates at Taft, went for long walks on the beach and spent the rest of the time watching the waves from our comfortable recliners and couch. With four of us this year, the second bathroom was a luxury that we all appreciated, and everyone slept well on the very comfortable beds. The weather was amazing, with temperatures in the low 60's, no wind and very little rain. It's always a great weekend at Betta's Cove, and we're looking forward to coming back next year.

Thanks again Matt for changing our weekend to avoid the bad weather a couple of weekends ago. This was our second time staying at your cozy condo and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Your place is so clean and comfortable with everything we needed to make our stay so pleasant. It is so nice to have the recliners to sit back in and watch the ocean right from the room. Thanks again for making our trip to Lincoln City a wonderful experience. Julie

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.
