Overview

Gold Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Three Bedrooms, Two Full Baths, Sleeps Six in Two Queen Beds And Two Twin Beds

The sunroom doubles as a dining room and writing room, with huge south and west windows. The owner’s favorite early-morning writing room can be closed off by double-pane sliding glass doors to allow other family members to visit, listen to music or watch television. If you need to work while your family relaxes, the spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean waves from the sun room will salve your soul.

Everyone loves the family room and open kitchen area where blue tooth speakers allow you to select the playlist of your choice.

The kitchen is fully-equipped and allows cooks to participate with family. Microwave oven, gas oven, four-burner gas stove, side-by-side refrigerator and all the necessary pots, pans, and utensils are provided for wonderful meals.

Cable television,including Netflix, Wi-Fi, and clean, comfortable furniture with premium mattresses provide all the comforts of home. The large hot tub is on the patio in the side yard protected from coastal winds. This private residence is only 150 feet from a gorgeous sea grass dune trail leading another 100 feet to the most beautiful and safe recreational beach in southern Oregon, known for its driftwood structures and stunt kite flying. No need to climb down a dangerous cliff to get to the beach!

About Mary Matheson

Len & Mary Matheson grew up in Southern California and now live in Missouri. Active grandparents and professionals, they enjoy hosting family and friends in their home on the spectacular southern Oregon coast.

Mary Matheson purchased this house in 2006

Why Mary Matheson chose Coastal Oregon

Far from the crowds of California and the summer heat of the midwest. Once we arrive and walk on the beach, the cares of the world melt away.

What makes this house unique

The southern Oregon coast is known for its spectacular cliffs. Sebastian Shores is located at beach level. Our Seaview Grotto home is a few feet off the beach, nestled in a fern grotto with southern exposure, protecting the hot tub from wind, while allowing sunbathing during the day and stargazing at night.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This home fully met ~ and even exceeded ~ my expectations. The owner was extremely accommodating and easy to work with! She provided a crock pot after a simple inquiry because our weekend looked like it would be filled with rain! My mom, sisters and I fully enjoyed this wonderful home! Easy access to the beach when the sky cleared, luxuriating in the hot tub at our convenience, and enjoying a full kitchen instead of eating out. Absolutely loved it!

very well maintained home, clean, comfortable, nicely furnished and decorated.

  • 4 of 5

The location was great - quiet area with quick access to the beach. The hot tub was a great plus and used every day. The only negative was a lack of space outdoor to sit and visit. Gold Beach is a very nice town near many wonderful locations for every kind of vacationer. The owner was very nice and went out of her way to help us with whatever we needed to give us the best vacation. The property mgr was also very helpful.

Well appointed, beautifully decorated, comfy

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the Seaview Grotto. The house is lovely, very well appointed and was just right for our family. I like the labeled kitchen cabinets..so helpful. Plenty of hooks on the walls. Hooks are so useful and there aren’t nearly enough of them for vacationers. We slept in the upstairs bedroom and that bed was so comfortable!! We enjoyed the hot tub, the beach (although very windy) and met some neighbors who were very friendly. We took the Jerry’s Jet boat trip…as my son said, “it was the most fun I’ve ever had”. We spent a lot of time just “hanging out". Since the beach was so windy, we drove up the Rogue..not that far..and found a turn out. We spent the day on the river just reading, swimming and resting. Very soothing and lovely.

I have stayed in many VRBO’s and I can honestly say, Mary's was one of the best. So homey!

Thank you for all you’ve done to make the Seaview Grotto such a lovely place to relax and rejuvenate.

We’ll be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for all the kind words about your stay at SeaviewGrotto. I am especially glad you appreciated the helpful hooks and labels. These are the things I like when I rent someone else's house. I like the way you explored and found a sanctuary out of the wind up the Rogue River !! Look forward to having you again Karen, anytime. All the best, Mary and Len

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean, comfortable and convenient rental for Gold Beach and the southern Oregon coast. It's great being close to the beach and able to see the Pacific from the dining area. We were there for a mini-family reunion and there was plenty of room for everyone and a nice open feel that allowed us to prepare meals, relax and visit. We walked to the visitor center next door and they were extremely nice and helpful in planning area activities. There is so much to see and do in the area - the beaches, rivers and forests are awe inspiring and the quaint small towns are a lot of fun.

Comfortable, clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for our family to visit our oldest son and his new family. We loved the house, the views and the location. A short walk to the beach, we were able to bring our dog and she loved the beach and playing Frisbee in the surf! There was plenty of room for the entire family and we were able to have our new grandson (and his parents) over for several visits. The hot tub was a big plus for us after the six hour drive! Thanks for a great mini vacation.

great views and location

  • 4 of 5

This was a very nice home. It was very clean and comfortable. The view of the ocean from the dining area was great. The homeowner and manager were both great to work with and very accomodating! If we are in the area again we would stay here.

Locale

Seaview Grotto is located at the southern edge of Gold Beach in Sebastian Shores, the last private 'on-the-beach' residential colony on the Pacific coast of the United States. Although the wide and sandy beach is public, it is used almost exclusively by homeowners and guests of the Sebastian Shores colony, making it safe and comfortable for notables who want to be left alone. Pass your day on the beach building driftwood art, bird watching, kite flying, reading or napping, and shell collecting. Walk north on the beach 100 yards to the Gold Beach Visitor Center and ask the friendly docents to help you plan your stay, then continue 1.5 miles along the beach to the Rogue River as it enters the Pacific Ocean. South from Sebastian Shores, wade through or leap across Hunter Creek and stop at Kissing Rock, a beautiful example of the Oregon Coast's ancient volcanic origin. If you're with someone you love, help the rock keep its reputation. The low tide pools are exciting to explore. Walk, run or ride your beach cruiser bicycle through Buena Vista Ocean Wayside State Park to Cape Sebastian, 3 miles further south.

Wind Surfing and Paddle Boarding

World-class ocean windsurfing and paddle boarding at Pistol River and freshwater windsurfing (and lessons) at Floras Lake are major attractions.

Family Activities

Free berry picking along every back road is popular with families in July, August, and September. Spectacular hiking abounds for people at all levels of ability on well-maintained trails. A campfire on the beach (away from the sea grass dunes) is a wonderful evening activity.

Shopping & Dining

The town of Gold Beach boasts the best bookstore and art gallery in southern Oregon with baristas and a pastry chef famous known for her creative use of local fruits and berries. The Gold Rush Center is home to wonderful local artists and craftspersons. Two supermarkets and a fish market have all the provisions for wonderful home-cooked meals at Seaview Grotto, but Gold Beach has several excellent restaurants within walking distance and the elegant Tu Tu Tun Lodge and Spa with its exquisite riverside dining room seven miles up the north shore road of the Rogue River. The cliffs at Otter Point and Nesika Beach can be carefully explored a few miles north of town.

Golf

Two intimate and fun (and inexpensive) public golf courses are nestled in banana belts within 30 minutes. The fantastic Bandon Dunes golf complex is less than 1-hour north, with 5 spectacular courses. Golf Odyssey reports, “on this remote stretch of the wildly stunning Oregon coast, where the finest golf courses in the whole world quietly await you.”

Wild and Scenic Rogue River

Two miles from the house, the Rogue River enters the Pacific Ocean from its origins 215 miles east in Crater Lake. Famous for Salmon and Steelhead trout, Gold Beach winter fishing in a heated boat could not be more relaxing. The Rogue National Wild and Scenic River is surrounded by forested mountains and rugged boulder and rock-lined banks. Two jet boat companies provide safe and comfortable but very exciting trips up into remote canyons where Bald Eagles, Otters, and Black Bears abound.

Coastal Redwoods

Considered to be one of America’s most beloved treasures, the old growth Coastal Redwood forests begin just below the California border, 30 miles south of Gold Beach. Stop by the Visitors Center in Crescent City to choose your Redwoods experience. These majestic trees cannot be captured on camera – they need to be experienced! Fishing, hiking, bird watching, and Roosevelt Elk are all part of you Redwood Forest visit.
