Dog-friendly, oceanfront rental w/ patio, incredible lighthouse & ocean views

Escape to the breathtakingly beautiful Southern Oregon Coast at this oceanfront home with furnished patio, yard, private beach access, and jaw-dropping lighthouse and sea views.

This two-bedroom rental sits a few miles west of Charleston on a bluff close to the historic Cape Arago Light located on Chiefs Island. Cross the back lawn and climb down the private steps to the very secluded beach, or take a short two-mile drive into Charleston for shops and restaurants. Start your mornings at Nonnie's Breakfast Barn and then wrap up your days with locally sourced seafood and gourmet selections at The Portside overlooking the harbor.

Bright, tidy, and comfortable, this single-level home is perfect for families including guests with limited mobility.

The living room is aglow with a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows offering incredible views of the ocean. Featuring wall-to-wall carpeting, plush furniture, and a warming gas fireplace, this is an ideal space for lounging by the fire and watching the boats pass by on the water.

Sharing this great room, there's a dining table with six chairs, perfect for game nights (if the weather isn't cooperating) or enjoying delicious, home-cooked meals prepared in the full kitchen.

The well-equipped kitchen is close-at-hand and chefs of all stripes will have no trouble whipping up everything from a cup of morning joe to a full-course dinner. Amenities include a host of utensils, cookware, and dinnerware, as well as essential appliances like a refrigerator, stove, microwave oven, and the all-important dishwasher to help keep things tidy during your stay. Enjoy snacks or casual breakfasts with a view at the kitchen table, and during the warmer months, fire up the gas grill outside and enjoy a fun seaside picnic.

The spacious master bedroom has a queen bed, fantastic view, private access to the yard, and attached, full bath. The guest room has an additional queen bed, and a second full bath is nearby. With two bedrooms, as well as a queen sofabed in the living room, this home sleeps up to six guests very comfortably. The family dogs are also welcome to join you for an additional nightly fee.

Enjoy the convenience of complimentary WiFi, keep up with the news or your favorite shows on three flatscreen, cable TVs, and with the DVD/VCR in the living room and a large selection of DVDs and tapes, you can easily program your own movie nights. There's also a variety of games for kids and adults alike located in the hall closet. Or gather around the firepit out back and roast marshmallows or make s'mores to the sound of the ocean waves down below. And for those wishing to travel light, be sure to take advantage of the private washer/dryer in the garage.

While you'll likely be spending a fair amount of time on the beach, this rental is also close to a number of parks for hiking, biking, and birdwatching including Sunset Bay State Park, Shore Acres State Park, and Cape Arago State Park. If you're here during the holidays, the light display at Shore Acres (also known for its perpetually blooming gardens) is one of the finest around. Crab rings are also available for use if you want to try your hand at catching crabs from the Charleston docks and bay.

Don't miss your chance to see the Southern Oregon Coast from this Charleston home when you reserve with us today!

House was nice and roomy. Fantastic view of the Cape Arago Lighthouse. There was construction work being done on the new stairs to the beach when we got there. The crew had the old stairs piled on the grass which was in the direct view when looking at the lighthouse and ocean. The crew did move them off the property on our 3rd day. New stairs are fantastic! Everything needed was onsite. There is ample supply of bedding linen and towels. Grill needs to be replaced, it is very rusty. We will definitely rent this property again.

Great view of the lighthouse and boats heading in and out. This is the 5th time we've stayed at this beach. 1st time at this house. The house is nice, but could be cleaner, and is due for some maintenance. The sea air is hard on things. It's still very comfortable and the view can't be beat. YES, I would staying there to anyone. Thanks!
Manager response:
Gary, we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. While we strive to maintain a standard of excellence in home cleanliness and upkeep, we hope to be notified of any outlying areas in need of attention so we can make sure they are addressed. We hope to host you again in the future!

A comfortable home so very close to state parks for marine life viewing and hiking. Amazing views of lighthouse and ship/boat traffic in the port channel right from the living room and back yard.
Alexander P. Jul 2019
The house has a gorgeous backyard with a stunning view on the ocean and the lighthouse

The view was gorgeous
Robyn S. May 2019
The view! The home was amazing too! Everything you needed was provided and the house has an old soul! There are treasures around every corner of the home, along with the inviting and warm ambience it gives off. The house has a lot of history and you can feel it in her bones. Thank you Jessica for providing such wonderful service and making sure all our needs were met. Vacasa is very lucky to have you! I will return again, and again!
Trina C. May 2019
The location near the state park and the coastal view were amazing!
Teri E. Apr 2019
The house is cute, roomy. But the view from the living room and backyard was the best part! We braved the steps and walked the beach, looking at tidal pools and critters. Very fun time.
David J. Mar 2019
Did I mention the views?? Really, a wonderful place for quiet getaway!! The beach is nothing short of amazing!!
Charles W. Mar 2019
We loved the house and a great view, plus our own private beach access was awesome. We will continue to get rentals through Vacasa for our future anniversary. Every house rental we have got since 2013 has been amazing.
Tena C. Feb 2019
This was our second stay, it was stunning. Honestly, the house was on the cool side. The private beach is great. The stairs are not for the faint of heart. 60 steps of terror 😯. The crab pots in the garage are not usable, just FYI. We always come in February, rates are cheap and it is a fabulous storm watching house. I would not recommend small children or uncontrollable pets. Danger!!! We had a great time. The views and light house make this home the perfect get away.
Chad J. Nov 2018
The view the view the view. Amazing view off the bluff of the lighthouse and ocean. The beach itself is great; accessing it is a bit of an adventure though as it's quite a bit of stairs down to the sand. The house was very clean and well stocked for those planning to make their own meals etc. The sofa sleeper bed was extremely comfortable which was a very pleasant surprise.
Robbyn M. Sep 2018
Unbeatable view of the Pacific Ocean and a lighthouse too!!! Amazing stay. Love this house.
Michelle N. Aug 2018
The House was as described and right on the beach! We traveled with young boys and they absolutely loved every minute of it. Can’t wait to return! Jessica from vacasa was very helpful and polite.
Viki N. May 2018
I loved the big living room with the best views of the Cape Arago Lighthouse and the ocean and boats coming and going! I loved the fire pit and the flower filled backyard! It is an older home but it is very clean and so very comfortable:)
Desiree T. May 2018
The view is to die for! The house was perfect for a quiet weekend away. The access to the beach below was so much fun. Close to all the beautiful trails and beaches in the area. My only concern was there was a slight mold/moisture smell when we first got there. Very minor and not a big deal for us.
Manager response:
This is a common odor in our coastal homes, but guests are always welcome to call us with any concerns during their visits. Thank you!
Jim M. Mar 2018
Loved the view
Scott H. Jan 2018
The views are amazing from every seat in the house. Wonderful setting, relaxing and quiet.
Lori C. Dec 2017
There are many positives things to say about this rental. We were not able to spend as much time there as we had hoped, as we were visiting relatives. The view is phenomenal! The walk down to the beach is precarious, but manageable. And the beach is great, especially at low tide. The house itself was very functional for us and we loved the size of the living area. It could use some updating, however we felt the price was appropriate for the property.
Dwight B. Dec 2017
This is a very special place with incredible views, yard, and access to the beautiful state park just minutes away. Though somewhat dated, it is a homey, comfortable gathering place for families to do many activities on the premises or nearby. We visited in the rainy winter so didn't get to take advantage of the beach, the deck chairs, fire-pit and crab pots. Will have to go back!
Ron W. Nov 2017
excellent location , good service by Vacasa. Enjoyed Miller's @ the Cove. Check out Cape Arago State Park & all the vistas. Shore Acres was phenomenal. Great Gardens there. Go to South Slough Reserve. The hike is to die for especially the Hidden Creek walk.
Linda K. Oct 2017
A comfortable house with beautiful views.
Denise B. Oct 2017
We loved staying here. The sunsets were amazing and the ocean views are unmatched!!
Nancy V. Oct 2017
The house is not new or modern but well equipped and very comfortable. We brought our east coast guests here and they also loved it. The beautiful windows gave us a great view.
We actually saw whales right down in the bay!!! It was a great three days! We hope to do it again next year.
Jessamy R. Oct 2017
We were very impressed with the view, both from inside the house and outside. We even saw a whale feeding near the shore each day!
William H. Sep 2017
We loved it, what an amazing view! Important to realize you have to climb down significant amount of steps to the beach (so no knee problems allowed). Great "private" beach. You can walk to Sunset Beach as well. Easy drive to Bandon for some shopping or have a fire in back yard to enjoy the sunset. We don't have any children, but I can imagine it would be a great house for them! Although be aware of the bluff. Pull out sofa was more comfortable than my bed at home, really.
Stacey K. Sep 2017
My husband and I brought my elderly mother here to enjoy the ocean. She loved that she could bring her small dogs and gaze at the ocean. Since the house is one level we were able to get her around with her walker. My husband and I enjoyed the romantic atmosphere and the beach down below. We ate crab that I caught and fantastic fish from the pier market in town. Enjoy hiking the trails and the state park down at the end of the road. 20 minutes to the sand dunes for UTV riding also!
Mary Anna V. Aug 2017
We had family guest from Michigan come for my husband's birthday. They were blown away by the views from the house and the beach access. We were really fortunate that the weather co-operated and we had warm sunny weather the whole time we were there!!!
Chris H. Jun 2017
It is all about the view at this location
Virginia H. May 2017
The master bedroom bed is extremely comfortable and there are lots of fluffy white towels. The views of the ocean and lighthouse are stunning!! Our main complaint is with the vertical blinds in the living room. There are three large picture windows. A lot of the slats are missing on the middle window giving only privacy half way across. Also some slats are missing on other windows , too. No curtains in kitchen (just a valance) so be sure and bring a bathrobe for evening. I was uncomfortable with limited privacy from curtains and a neighbor that is close by. Drain in bathroom sink didn't drain at all. This house just needs a bit of maintenance. Porch light we used for lighting goes on and off. Shower door in bathroom doesn't stay on track. Is fully stocked though with dishes and every spice you can think of. There are loads of games, toys, books, and DVD's. The stairs to the beach are STEEP. As a senior citizen, I would never attempt those. Also be aware there is a step going from the kitchen to the bedroom area and another step going into the master bedroom. We had to keep reminding ourselves they were there. Not totally one level. The house was fairly clean-could have been vacuumed more thoroughly as there was a lot of dog hair on living room carpet. The house does smell musty but there are three dehumidifers that do help. After all, it is on the ocean. I was born and raised in Coos Bay and have fond memories of the Lighthouse--I so enjoyed the view. I loved the large living room the most. Especially with the gas fireplace going. It took us several days to figure out the fireplace is run by one of the thermostats. I think for our visit next year we are going to look and see what else VACASA has to offer in rental houses. The pictures of this home are pretty accurate. It has been a really neat house at one time, but for the money that is charged, I want something that is a bit more maintained.
Manager response:
We're sorry the guest experienced some minor inconveniences. The property manager has scheduled repairs for the home next week, including the clogged drain, inspection of the exterior lights and ordering new blinds. Thank you.
Barbara K. May 2017
Great views!! We watched the tides coming in and out around the light house, the ships going in and out of the bay, and even a pod of orcas hunting just below us!! All from the comfort of the couch!
Beth R. Apr 2017
Very nice home!
Genevieve H. Feb 2017
This is an older home in a truly wonderful location. The view is of Cape Arago Lighthouse and the ocean. Two bedrooms - one really large with it's own bath and a queen sized bed - and the second much smaller but still with a queen size bed. Everything we used in the house worked - tv, washer and dryer, dishwasher, tons of games and books, nice sheets and towels - and plenty of them.
The house is 2.3 miles past the town of Charleston which is low on touristy stuff and big on fishing, crabbing and very helpful locals. There are a couple of really good restaurants where we enjoyed local fish, oysters and really good gluten free chowder. We'll definitely be back!
Ali T. Feb 2017
This house has amazing views and beach access. It was clean enough and comfortable for our family, including kids and dog. We appreciated the use of the crab rings and the fire pit in the back yard. It felt a bit like 'grandma's house": dated, but comfortable and cozy. We would stay again.
Nancy A. Feb 2017
Excellent location. Views are breathtaking; house is very comfortable. Nothing fancy, but well-stocked and homey. HOWEVER, we suggest you visit in milder weather rather than the winter. The bedrooms have inadequate or no heat, and we were very uncomfortable at night. Also, the stairs to the beach (pretty steep but solid)were wet and very slippery. I almost fell on the first attempt; we never went down to the beach after that. All that said, we had a wonderful, relaxing time; got all of the privacy and quiet we needed. Fascinating watching the fishing boats at night.
Tena C. Jan 2017
This is a nice home, comfortable and warm. The beds were very comfortable. The view from the living room very nice, but the kitchen and master bedroom view is spectacular. We loved the private beach, rainbows over the lighthouse and watching the whales. The stairway down to the beach is not for the faint of heart, but the beach is worth it.
Leslie E. Jan 2017
Great views!
