Overview

Newport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Sea Gem Cottage is an oceanfront home six miles south of Newport, Oregon. Our home now has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a loft. The entire house has been completely remodeled with the additional bedroom and loft added as of February 2016.

There are bamboo floors throughout the house and travertine tiles in the bathroom. The home is decorated with modern furnishings. There are spectacular views of the beach and surf from every room of the house. The bedrooms have queen beds with storage drawers and wardrobes for your extended stay. The downstairs great room has seating for 6 at the dining table and a wall mounted television with media player.

Stairs from the great room lead up to the new loft area. Here you can find two twin beds on the garden side of the loft and a lounge area on the ocean side.

The house sits on a 40 foot tall bluff with a private path and stairs leading to the beach. The beach stretches for miles in either direction allowing for long walks on the beach where you rarely encounter another person.

About Winter Chung

Winter and Neil purchased this property in 2009 to be used as a getaway from their daily lives in Portland, Oregon. After completely remodeling the cottage, they began renting it so that others could also enjoy the beautiful Oregon Coast.

Winter Chung purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Winter Chung chose Coastal Oregon

The Newport area is the most beautiful and scenic part of the Oregon Coast in our opinion. There is abundant wildlife as well as the conveniences of a nearby city. Whales and seals have been viewed from the cottage. Seagulls and pelicans fly by the windows and float in the wind. The privacy granted by having a house on the ocean cannot be matched by a hotel or condo.

What makes this cottage unique

The house is built in the 1960's, but has been completely remodeled with tasteful, modern decor, yet keeping some of the original charm. It is challenging to find modern properties on the Oregon Coast, and this cottage will not disappoint.

Nice beach-front getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Sea Gem. The house is nice, has a wonderful view of the ocean and provided a quiet place for a weekend getaway at the coast for my family. The kids loved the loft. We would happily return again and recommend the Sea Gem to any friends who would be looking for a house to rent near Newport.

One of our favorite places to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd or 4th time staying at this property! The owner's recently did some remodeling which allows for a little more space, and an awesome loft upstairs for relaxing and amazing ocean views. We had a great stay, and will be back again next year!

A Gem in South Newport

  • 5 of 5

We have found our favorite getaway in Newport. The Sea Gem is a "GEM". We celebrated our 11th anniversary and wish we could have stayed longer. The Sea Gem is a beautiful cottage that sits right on the cliffs just south of Newport. The cottage is more than a "cottage".. it is a private getaway with so many well thougth out ammenitites. Tastefully and thoughtfully decorated and put together. The owners have gone beyond to make sure your stay is comfortable and private. Everything is super clean.

We loved it so much we just stayed there instead of going anywhere else. We got fresh fish and clams both nights from the South Beach Fish Market and ate on the deck watching the waves instead of going out. No need to go anywhere with your own ocean view..The upstairs loft is a must for morning reading and an afternoon nap. The owners are super responsive and truly care about this property. If I owned this I am not sure I could let others stay there... it is so nice. Thank you for making your lovely property available for us to enjoy. My only regret is we could only stay 2 days. Next stay will be longer. Enjoy!!

Magical

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about sea gem - it is even better than the pictured - a truly magical getaway. Cozy beach cottage, perfectly updated with beach views and access. Extremely private beach where we found agates and driftwood. Every detail and amenity was considered - truly an amazing experience.

Very very nice

  • 5 of 5

Clean and very comfortable. Amazing view, would definitely recommend to friends and family. The only downside was the beach access. If you have any limitations the path and huge boulders could be very difficult, if not dangerous. There is easy access a mile away.
