Bright and cozy oceanfront home w/ easy beach access and amazing views
Experience the rugged beauty of the Northern Oregon Coast with amazing oceanfront views from this two-bedroom, one-bathroom Gleneden Beach vacation rental. Perfect for a weekend getaway with your loved one or an escape from the city with a close friend or two, this home will accommodate up to four lucky guests.
Perched 100 feet from the surf, the location of this home is a beachgoer's dream! Open the windows and wake to the sound of crashing waves in the distance, then head out to the beach for a morning jog or to explore tidepools and collect seashells. You could also go into town for great dining and boutique shops along the Gleneden Beach Loop, which lies a half-mile north, or drive another mile to play a full 18 holes of golf at Salishan Spa & Golf Resort.
With large picture windows, a bright interior, comfy cloth and wicker furniture, and maritime decor, this home exudes a relaxing coastal character that’ll be a welcome respite from the bustle of city life. After a day of beachcombing and exploring the local scene, pop in a DVD movie on the flatscreen TV, uncork a bottle of wine, and lounge together on the couch or armchairs in the living room.
You could also surf the Internet or check your email from the comfort of these couches - WiFi is included. You can even stream your own Netflix account if you feel like binge-watching your new favorite show. If you’re hungry, feel free to whip up an enticing seafood meal in the well-stocked kitchen, which features modern appliances to make meal preparation and cleanup easy.
With seating in multiple places you’ll be able to eat together. Gather at the indoor table with room for four, or if the weather is good, head outdoors to admire the beautiful coastline while eating on the deck, or enjoy your meal in the sunroom with seating on nice wicker furniture.
If you’re in the mood for a barbecue you’re in luck! A gas grill is ready for your group’s grill master to take the reigns…so get cooking!
When you're ready to call it a day, retire for restful sleep in either of the home’s two quaint bedrooms. Featuring a double-size bed in one room and a queen-size bed in the other, these rooms will accommodate up to four people.
In addition to its quaint eateries and shops, Gleneden Beach is known for its wildlife viewing sites, including beautiful Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuge, the north end of which is just five miles away. Bring your binoculars to spot nesting waterfowl including wood ducks, common mergansers, American wigeons, green-winged teals, and many more species on over 100 acres of federally protected salt marsh. Whale watching is another fun activity of the Northern Oregon Coast, and Depoe Bay, which lies five-and-a-half-miles south, offers some of the best viewing sites to see grey whales on their seasonal migration.
Close to the beach and conveniently located near great dining and shopping, this oceanfront Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental is sure to set the stage for the best Gleneden Beach getaway you’ve had yet!
This was a very nice place to stay. It has a beautiful view. Very quiet and not a lot of people on the beach..we will use it again when we get a chance. Thank you for sharing your home!
Awesome location, views & deck, clean & comfortable!!
We planned this stay to get away, enjoy the ocean and totally relax. This property was perfect! We stopped for groceries on the way and didn't leave for three days. The cottage was beautiful with breathtaking views out large windows, a great deck, very comfy beds, well appointed kitchen. We walked on the beach and watched the surf out the windows- completely relaxing! We will come back here!
We loved our stay in this little home! Bedrooms are tiny but beds are so comfortable. The living/dining room feels open and airy. The home is clean and equipped with basic necessities. It is not an easy climb down to the beach, but other access is nearby. The view from the deck absolutely cannot be beat anywhere on the coast!
We had a wonderful stay at the Driftwood. Nice little place. It had everything we needed. The weather was 75 so we spent a lot of time on the deck watching the waves.
This place was so perfect. Very well designed for the amount of space. The view is the deal breaker. Being so close to oceam you can hear waves crashing in bed. Would love to stay here again! Highly reccomend
Amazing views, stocked with everything we needed and then some. Also, basically direct beach access as the pathway is right next to this rental.
2nd visit to this location!!!!It's my wife's favorite.....The view out the windows of the surf is truly world class... Very quiet... amenities are top notch!!!
I loved everything about this bungalow. The views are AMAZING. The bungalow is beautifully decorated and very clean. Bed comfy (we slept in the master), kitchen cupboards well stocked. It was just my husband and me which was perfect. The views seriously are the best!!
Loved THE VIEW!!! from this little place. The windows just framed the ocean, you could sit there all day just watching the ocean waves. Accommodations were nice and clean. Furniture and bed (we only tried the master bed) were comfy. There were only four steps to get up into the house and then it is all on one level. I was unable to get to the beach from the house due to mobility issues but my husband was able to do the steep rocky path and I saw a family with young children climb it. If you have found this house, I would highly recommend you book it!
The view was amazing. Quick beach access, and the cottage had everything we needed for the perfect week of relaxation. Highly recommend!
The windows looking out at the ocean are wonderful. Very clean and nice. Full sized kitchen appliances. Very cozy and comfy. The bedrooms are very small but comfortable.
The view, the crashing waves, amenities, decor, location all were fantastic! Everything we needed for a quiet, calming anniversary getaway!
Very quaint clean. Served our purposes well. Did I say it was right on the Pacific!!! You go to sleep listening to the ocean waves. Also saw whales every day! No washer/dryer and no cable. Would come back again.
Amazing place. Look forward to coming back
We really enjoyed our week at Driftwood Bungalow. The view was amazing, the place was cozy for the 4 of us (2 adults and 2 kids), places to store things like luggage a bit challenging, and no clothes washer/dryer but the location, view, and access to the ocean more than made up for it. Here's a tip, if you are awake at 2 in the morning go out and see the stars, they are incredible!
Everything about this home was perfect. The ocean view, all the extras such as beach toys, kitchen utensils, movies and much more. It was the perfect distance to town in case your needing a store run or to explore but also made the beach less busy. We will definitely be back.
We had an amazing trip to the coast and staying at this adorable bungalow was beautiful. Every morning I enjoyed sitting and looking out over the ocean, even saw a whale right outside the window our last day. The home is well kept, clean and exactly as described. We are already talking about when we can come back and stay again. Thanks so much for a wonderful home to stay in!
Wonderful beach cottage with a view of the ocean and hear the crashing of the waves. There isn't anymore that we could ask for.
We loved the view! We had a good storm while we were there too. Very exciting.
The house is small, but perfect for two adults and two kids. We spent time on the beach with three days of amazing weather taking a nice long walk in either direction and letting the kiddos play while we cooked dinner... we could watch them, it was amazing! The last day was stormy and we had a wonderful time watching the ocean get crazy and playing board games. Whales were spouting the entire time and we even saw two jump... LOVE this place and WILL be back!!
Great location! The house is right on the beach, raised up a little, so the view is stunning. Comfortable living area (with the view). Very light! Worked well for our 2 sons and us :D
This warm, sunny little home was just right for our getaway in Gleneden Beach. The big windows framing the Pacific surf provided a stunning view, where we could sit during the rainy afternoons and watch whales spouting and sea lions swimming. When the sun came out, the deck was a lovely place to sit. The kitchen was well-supplied with everything we needed. Bedrooms are a bit "cozy", but the comfortable living room was quite spacious. The location is so convenient to great points of interest on the Coast. Especially enjoyed the Yaquina Head Lighthouse, and visiting the many brew pubs nearby. The local beers are great! I would love to return to the Driftwood Bungalow for another relaxing vacation.
My wife and I are in our 60's. In fact, we were celebrating her 62nd when I thought it might be a nice change to try a vacation home. We did some research and came across VRBO. Looking at the pictures and descriptions we decided on this particular place. I think it was the proximity to the ocean that sold us. Anyway, our first time not in a hotel and loved it. I was astounded about all the forethought that went into the house. Pots, pans, dishes, cutlery, BBQ, everything. It was wonderful. I believe our vacation hotel days are over. Thank you!
If you found this place book it!!!! I am a 5 star kinda vacationer and this place did not disappoint
Great location and the best oceanfront views for the price. Cozy and relaxing home.
If you enjoy relaxing in a cozy home while watching the waves this is the house for you!
We had a wonderful time watching the waves at the Driftwood Bungalow. The cottage is light and has everything you need. The beach is a nice walk and easy access one block up.
We arrived and the house was just as described, clean, fresh and what a view! We will be back next year as we have found our home away from home.
The location and interior of this home is perfect and romantic. It can be a good 4person vacation home as well for couple. Highly recommended. And vacasa really takes a good care of customer.
This 2 bedroom one bath beach cottage is really right on the ocean. Enjoy seeing the waves and water from inside or outside on the nice deck. We really enjoyed hearing and experiencing the Oregon ocean. The family room is nicely appointed and windows throughout. The kitchen is a nice size with everything one would need. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are a nice size. It could get a little cramped with more than two people. There is a nice enclosed area in back to sit and outside area with grill.
Close to Depot Bay and the Sea Hag restaurant and Red roof for breakfast/coffee right up the street. Lincoln city is super close and Newport is 30 minutes away.
We would stay again for sure.
While the home is cozy, we found this to be perfect for us. There is everything you will need, from cooking utensils and cookware to sand toys. They mean it when they say no more than 4 people can occupy this home, but that just means there is more time to enjoy the town, the beach and each other. The deck is right on an erosion wall, so you can literally sit ate the house and be on the edge of the ocean. The beach access is only a block away and is very easy to navigate. The best part is that this beach tends to get less crowded than others in the area. Overall, I cannot say enough nice things about this place and we will be staying many more times (which now made me think that I should have given it a worse review so it wont be so popular) Truthfully, I would hate for anyone to miss out on this gem.
No washer or dryer. No way to easily get to the beach. I might not recommend this place for seniors. Condo is clean, well kept up, well decorated, plenty of kitchen equipment.
This lovely place exceeded our expectations by a lot! The views, the views, the VIEWS are spectacular. We loved that this unit was on the South end corner from two other houses providing privacy and amazing views of the ocean. We sat on the deck facing the ocean and took in the sounds and sights, including whale watching as they were very active during our stay. The bungalow is well-appointed and decorated in fun beach furnishings. Although it is small, it is just right for two people. We left the windows open at night and went to sleep to the sounds of the ocean pounding on the shore......completely hypnotic and relaxing. We can hardly wait to go back. It will be a memorable vacation for many years to come.
This charming cottage met all of our needs. It was clean, quaint and comfortable.
Cute 2 bedroom beach house right on the ocean! Just a short walk to beach access. Only down side is the queen bed is really soft and bouncy. I guess if you like soft beds then this place would be 5 stars. Ample dishes and cookware , games and kites and sand toys for kids. Nice and clean and even a starter supply of paper products and hotel size shampoo and soap.
This was the best vacation rental. The house was small but perfectly furnished and decorated. The kitchen was outfitted with all essentials and some extras (such as a waffle iron, large pitcher, lemon juicer). There were beach chairs and toys to borrow as well. There is a large selection of games, several puzzles and even a curated selection of books. The views from the house were stunning. We spent hours just watching the waves and catching glimpses of pelicans, whales, and sea lions.
We really enjoyed our stay at this house. It had everything we needed. It is close to the house on the north side but the angle and windows make it private. There is not a house on the south side so views were great. Recommend staying here.
Great view, lovely, tiny house. No immediate beach access.
Property was very clean and nicely stocked. The view is exceptional and we enjoyed the deck greatly. There is a path to the beach nearby.
The house was nicely furnished and had everything we needed. It's nice that the unit is the southern-most of the three because the view is 270 and gorgeous. The only thing that detracts is the edge of the nearest neighbor's deck is about 5 ft away from yours with zero barriers between. If you like sitting outside with people you don't know, it shouldn't be a problem. Otherwise, everything was perfect and we would stay again.
This was our second time staying here. We love the solitude and close proximity to the water. We are past walking on the beach or getting wet. We come to get away from the stresses of self employment. Sleep late, stay up late, play cards, watch Netflix or dvd's, cook when we are hungry. The kitchen is well stocked with plates, bowls, pans, and I must say, I loved the heavy silverware!!! I know it sounds silly, but people who purchase good, solid silverware are quality people and this is a super quality rental. We are already planning our next trip.
The view in this cottage is amazing! You can't beat it. You see wall to wall ocean. The home is very small. Like tiny home small, but the living space is surprisingly open. For a few days with two small children we were completely fine. Has really cute beach decor. It's perfect for a couple or a small family. Has everything you need in the kitchen department. Our only complaints are the wifi is extremely spotty and we couldn't use it really. The home definitely needed a deep clean as well!!
The short walk to the beach through the grassy park is only about 5 minutes.
This home will be thoroughly cleaned. We apologize for the disappointment this caused our guest.
We loved staying right on the ocean. Sunrise to sunset it was intoxicating.
We just couldn't leave. It was perfect for the two of us.
Windows provide great beach and ocean views. Would have liked the option to close drapes at night though.
We came here to celebrate my 55th birthday. We had a wonderful time. Whale watching,great meals,walking on the beach,and relaxing!
Excellent spot and the view is awesome! The beach is awesome in both directions!! Definitely a must if you want a beachfront, secluded getaway!!
I would stay here any time. Great for a romantic couple getaway
If you're looking for a great little cottage on the beach; look no further. It's small, but fit the four of us perfectly. The views from the living room are absolutely incredible and we're missing them already. I highly recommend this place and will gladly stay again when returning to the Oregon coast.
So amazing. Not being quite so high on the bank made it feel like you were practically on the beach at all times. The waves in gleneden beach are always bigger and more dramatic than other locations in the lincoln city area.
Loved our stay here! Views are breathtaking! Short drive to shops, restaurants, groceries. Great beach!
Cute, but small ocean front cottage. Loved the view from the porches and front room. The small bedrooms and bathroom could be a problem for some.
We really loved our stay! The view is spectacular with added bonuses like seals on the beach, a visit from a bunny and waves coming right up close to the rocks. The beach access next to the house is not something we would attempt, but there is access right down the street. The house is very cute and tastefully decorated. We used the 2nd bedroom for our luggage. It would be tight to have more than 2 adults stay, but could be done. A bit disappointed in all of the extra fees, which really added up. Loved the place...we will be back!
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 days, and found the location to be exquisite! Directly on the beach, the deck is perfect for morning coffee or a beachfront happy hour. To address previous reviews' concerns with the beach access: there are large rocks to climb down; if you have small children it may be difficult. There is easier beach access a few blocks north of the house. The house itself is bright, clean, and perfect for a couple or 2 friends. It might be tight for 2 couples, as both bedrooms are small and one does not have a closet and there is limited space for luggage. And finally, my only grievance, is that when we arrived, the house was dirty and the cleaning crew had not come at all. I called the property's management and they sent someone right away to clean and also waived the cleaning fee, but felt I had to include this in the review since another reviewer had mentioned that the house seemed dirty when they arrived. Other than that, we thought the house was adorable, and the location was fantastic!!
A beautiful, charming, sunny and extremely clean house! Will be back for sure!
Some updated pictures of the beach access would be beneficial. Had I known we had to scale giant rocks to get to the beach I probably wouldn't have stayed here with our small children (one 20 weeks old), But the view was amazing, the place was great, overall happy with our stay . There is another way to get to beach but it's about a blocks worth walk away.
Our stay was great. The house had everything we needed. The home is a little small but is perfect for 2 couples or a family with kids. Kitchen was stocked with all the cooking supplies you would need. The view is priceless. We will be staying again for sure
We had very cold weather, but it was still a great spot to watch the waves. Very quiet and it had all we needed for our trip to the coast. It was a great middle ground between day trips north and south.
We had a great time at this bungalow right on the beach! The unit was clean and had everything we could have asked for.
Thanks for a great experience in a wonderful spot
With the blustery sea, we spent 3 beautiful days wandering the beach, swimming with wetsuit rented from town, eating great local foods, sleeping like babes in the comfy beds. Highly recommend this. Every detail accounted for. Very clean and comfortable.
Love the place, location, view, everything! We stayed at 4 different houses on our two week Oregon vaca. This was by far the best, cleanest, comfortable and overall experience. Deg booking again if we ever plan another trip out west. Thanks!
My 83 year old mother, wonderful wife, and I enjoyed the relaxing beauty and calming power of the Ocean.
It was a wonderful time. We did not like having to ration the toilet paper.
We are so happy that you and your family were able to enjoy this gem of a home! Vacasa provides 3 rolls of toilet paper per bathroom for all of our guests and we have reached out to our housekeeping staff to make sure that is happening. Thank you again for choosing Vacasa and sharing your review.
Sweet little house in amazing location. Even though the weather wasn't great it was still really relaxing.
This is a nice little place was great for my wife and i .we sean seals in the surf and whales spouting about a half mile out.we loved it.We will be back
The house was comfy and well stocked with kitchen essentials. The setting was gorgeous. The peaceful beach was lovely to look at, and the sound of the waves was relaxing. Make sure to look up at the night sky!
Loved it! Perfect view! Had everything we needed. Definitely will come again!
Took some long walks along the water after climbing down the big rocks to the beach (not a problem for healthy people with a decent sense of balance), and spent the rest of the time inside or on the deck watching the waves. Didn't really want to leave!
Great spot for two people! The deck overlooking the beach was lots of fun-and the lap blankets were appreciated in the evenings. What's nice about this place are the big living room windows overlooking the ocean. This was a great place to chill for a few days.
We had never stayed here before and it is definitely not our last. How incredible... The kitchen has lots of glasses for any kind of drink (a lack of many places). I would say that any more than two people would be tight here but well worth it if you are good friends. Two was perfect for us. The view was like being at the bow of a ship. So incredible. We are definitely staying here again.
I booked this house for a get away for myself, my sister and our friend. It was the most enjoyable little home I have stayed in on the Oregon Coast. The kitchen was stocked way beyond the norm. Along with the usual stocked cookware it even had a Dutch Oven, Pyrex cake pans, cookie sheets, blender, measuring spoons and cups and more. It had absolutely anything you may need for cooking. Added to that was the fresh, yet homey feel of the furnishings. Everywhere you look is another interesting treasure for the eye. I loved the basket of blankets and throws. Each room was adequate size and furnished with a fresh, clean, beach theme. The neighborhood is quiet, the beach uncrowded and the view spectacular. I have stayed in numerous beachfront hotels and homes in the Lincoln City area. This is my absolute favorite for a quiet relaxing get away. And as an added bonus on our last day, right out beyond the breakers, maybe 50 yards, a humpback whale came swimming up parallel to the beach and right past the house. I can't wait to come back.
This is perfect hidden beach away from busy Cannon beach or Lincoln beach. Perfect for a quiet vacation for a small family.
Loved the house, very well decorated! Short walk to the beach. The ocean sounds lull you to sleep. Was fortunate enough to see whales from the deck! We have 2 kids, ages 4 and 1, and they loved every second of it. None of us wanted to leave! We will be back again.
Small house in great location
Take true pics of the front part of the home. The pics you have now do not show the true front part of the home, it looks like the back patio goes right into the sand which it does not. The front drops off onto huge rocks that is almost impossible to get down to the beach and if you can't get down all the rocks, you have to walk or drive about a mile or more to have access to the beach. Other than that the house is lovely.
We apologize if the you surprised by the layout of the property and hope the pictures available now give a good sense of what to expect.There is beach access a 1/2 block north of the home at Gleneden Beach State Wayside Park which has an easy beach access to walk down. We hope that this information helps set proper expectations for our guests going forward.
The location of this house is the best!! The view is incredible, we saw whales & seals just sitting on the deck. Loved the sun room & the entire house was very tastefully decorated! Highly recommend!
The property was perfect for our small family of 4 as we spent most of the days outside. I love the view and didn't mind the trek down the rocks to the beach as it was fabulous. It seems like a lot of properties in the area didn't have such great beach access as this property had. We will visit again.
Beautiful view, and a convenient location. I look forward to staying here again!
We stayed here for 3 nights mid-week. Our senior mother was especially happy with the beautiful views from the living room and the good quality, comfortable furniture. The grade down to the beach was a bit too steep for her, but there is a public park with an easier paved trail, only 2 blocks away.
The kitchen was well appointed, and it was nice to be able to cook, right down to the local Dungeness crab.
We absolutely loved the house, and look forward to another stay.
Great place for a small family gathering
Really amazing view. Easy beach access if you can climb down some large rocks. Very clean and sweet. Loved the funky old binoculars that worked. Loved how clean it was!
Very clean unit, fantastic view, before renting this place be aware there is no cable
tv at all, they supposedly have net flix, but we tried for 3 days to get it to work but
could not. (there are no instructions on how to get it to work). There are no blinds on the windows, so neighbors can watch you eat etc. bedrooms are very small but comfortable.would rent this unit again if it had cable tv.
Thank you for your review. We apologize that Netflix was not working for your stay; the Property Manager has double-checked the set-up and made sure it is now functioning properly for our guests. We are glad to see that you were comfortable and hope you had a wonderful time!
Great location and views. Very clean and obviously updated. Just right for one or two couples. It took me a minute to figure out there is no cable TV just a DVD player and a modest selection of movies.
So close to the ocean it's like being in a ship while staying there. It doesn't get any more relaxing than this. Great decor and comfortable beds.
