About the property

Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 11-12)

Welcome to our Beach Haven! This is our family beach retreat that was built with love, and we’ve enjoyed making memories there for the past 5 years. Now we’re excited to be able to share it with your family. This is the perfect get-away--located in the charming Olivia Beach development in Lincoln City, the home sits just across the street from a grassy park that boasts a play structure, sand volleyball court, and a fire pit that is the ideal gathering spot on summer evenings for wine-drinking with the adults and marshmallow-roasting with the kids. This home is not a “party” home. It was built for our family, and is meant to be enjoyed by other families. It comfortably sleeps 11, and is ideal for a relaxing escape to the beautiful Oregon Coast.

As you arrive, you’ll see a wonderful wrap-around porch that offers plenty of seating. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning, or to watch the sunset in the evening. It’s also a great vantage point to watch the kids play in the park or ride bikes around the neighborhood.

As you enter the house, you’ll walk into the living room that has two comfy sofas that are perfect for watching movies. The living room has a gas fireplace, a flat-screen TV and DVD player, and a closet that is full of board games. There is also a iPod docking station so that you can enjoy your music.

The open-concept main floor includes a dining area with a large farm-house table that will comfortably seat 8-10. The kitchen has beautiful granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances, and is fully equipped. You’ll enjoy cooking amazing meals in this space! Guests can gather around the island and socialize while the meal is being prepared. It’s a great gathering spot! There are plenty of dishes, flatware, and even several small appliances including a keurig, coffee maker, coffee grinder, toaster and blender.

The main floor also includes a full laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer, just in case you need to do some wash during your stay.

On the first floor, you’ll find one of two master suites. This bedroom is light and bright, and boasts a king-size bed, full bath and TV/DVD.

When you explore the second floor, you’ll find the second master suite. This is another light and airy room with beautiful bedding on the king-size bed. It also offers a full bath (with bath tub) and a TV/DVD.

Also on the second floor are two additional guest rooms and another full bath (with bath tub). One bedroom has a king-size bed; the other has a queen.

The third floor is the perfect retreat for the kids! There is a nautical-themed bedroom with two twins and a hidden trundle bed (and plenty of floor space for additional sleeping bags). There is a full bath, and a great playroom/den space with a sofa, toy storage, and a TV/DVD.

Other “extras” that the Beach Haven includes: a gas barbecue, free Wi-Fi, an outdoor shower (perfect for rinsing sandy feet), hair dryers in each bathroom, two cruiser bicycles and sand toys in the garage. The home is a short walk to the beach, and within a few minutes of the outlet mall, the movie theater, and many restaurants. The brand-new Olivia Beach community pool just recently opened, so our renters get to enjoy it this summer. The pool is located just a couple of blocks north of the house--a short walk away.

There is parking space for four vehicles on the alley-side of the home (including the garage). On-street parking is not allowed. All guests must use the approved parking spaces provided.

** Please note that there is a cleaning fee of $150 that we ask renters to leave at the house upon their departure (we don't collect it prior to your stay). **

We hope you enjoy the Beach Haven as much as we do. Kick off your shoes, get comfortable, and enjoy!

Beautiful beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many houses in Olivia beach and this one is on our top favorite. It was equipped very well, I was truly impressed. Very roomy and love the fact that it has 2 masters bedrooms and an awesome kids area upstairs.

We had a family reunion here last week with 9 adults and there was ample space for everyone! Everyone LOVED it, nothing has been overlooked, every detail has been addressed. Complete kitchen and more! Decor is warm and welcoming. Craig, Courtney, and Karen quickly responded to any and all questions. What a great group!! Directions for checking-in and checking-out were clear and concise. Lovely setting, within walking distance to beach but requires quite a few steep steps upon your return. Pool and gym room were wonderful.

If we should return to the beach we would DEFINITELY stay here. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!

Perfect for the family

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a multigenerational beach trip. Everyone was comfortably accommodated from young to old. Decor was beautiful, toys were plentiful, walk to beach was easier for the younger ones and the area was quiet for rest. I would rent this home again in a heartbeat!

Wonderful Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were able to fit 4 families in this house for a relaxing family retreat. The park was great for kids to run off energy while adults drank coffee and talked on the deck. While the beach is in walking distance, it is a hike. But the exercise and the destination are well worth it. Kids enjoyed an afternoon swim in the warm pool.

Thank you for sharing your piece of beach heaven with our family!

Perfect for family

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for a family vacation! House is well taken care of, clean, very well thought out. So many bedroom options and enough bathrooms. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is well stocked, sheets and towels were clean. My family got to relax and see the beach, which is just a short walk from the house. Great location with restaurants nearby and other coast towns to explore. I would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful! Amazing! Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

Had a family reunion and my parents 50th anniversary. They renewed their vows under the arbor across the street, it was beautiful! The house was wonderful with a ground floor suite for my parents and enough rooms and bathrooms for everyone else. It never felt cramped even with 12 to 15 of us. We utilized everything this property has to offer and loved it all! Hope we can do it again someday! Only problem is that the stairs to the beach are impressive, it is 208 stairs down to the beach and back up. Not exactly an easy access! Oh and the kitchen lacks a potatoes masher, lol!
