Modern oceanfront cottage with a gorgeous deck, perfect for families!
Relax and renew in style at this historic oceanfront vacation cottage with stunning views in Depoe Bay. Recently renovated with all new flooring, an updated full kitchen, decorative touches throughout, and all the conveniences of home, this charming getaway is just right for a quiet, romantic retreat. While this cottage is simply perfect for a couple to share, feel free to bring up to two youngsters, as there is a queen sized sofa sleeper in the living room.
Set above beautiful Pirate Cove, this one-level, classic shingled beach cottage invites you to step inside and make yourself right at home. The open living room has new slate flooring, recessed lighting, a fireplace, wood ceilings, and a comfortable sofa. Large floor-to-ceiling windows frame a wonderful view of ocean waves crashing over the rocks. You can watch all of nature's action right from inside the warmth and comfort of the cottage. This is also a prime viewing spot for nesting seabirds, as well as sea lions that sun themselves up on the rocks!
In addition to the ample sea life right outside the window, the living room also features a flat-screen TV with a DVD player. You'll have a tough time deciding whether you want to look for pelicans and seagulls flying outside, or watch a DVD. There's also cable and WiFi throughout the cottage for even more entertainment opportunities.
A dining room table with seating for four is located right by even more ocean-facing windows. In the spring and winter, enjoy buttermilk pancakes and coffee for breakfast while keeping an eye out for whales. The full kitchen also has slate tile floors, and includes all the appliances needed for delicious vacation meals, whether it's a simple bowl of cherry oat granola in the morning or a lemon-roasted chicken at night, and a post-dinner glass of wine.
Step outside the cottage to the beautiful lawn or the deck to catch closer views of soaring eagles or the waves crashing into the cove directly below. There is a briquette barbecue for use as well, so dinner could easily be some grilled salmon served al fresco style. After the meal, you'll want to take some time to linger outdoors and watch the sunset.
A spacious bedroom has a queen sized bed, hardwood floors, bedside tables and reading lamps, and ocean-themed art on the walls. Sink down into the bed at night while you listen to the sounds of the ocean. After a restful night's sleep, slip past the plush area rug and out the sliding glass doors to enjoy some coffee on the deck. And if you want to sleep in, there's even heavy, dark drapes to keep the light at bay until you're ready to greet the day.
Off the kitchen, there's a full bathroom with a shower/tub combo that also has a stacked washer and dryer. So don't be afraid to take off your sandals and walk along the beach. If your pant legs get a little wet, you can have dry clothes back at the house in no time, thanks to the provided washer/dryer. This one bedroom, one bath cottage will sleep four people quite comfortably. Please note that this bedroom is adjacent to the living area and does not have a door attached. If you do have a larger group, Pirate Cove Cottage 2, a two-bedroom, two bath home, is right next door and ready for eight additional guests. Please note that both homes share the same yard, deck, and parking area.
Heading outside this delightful little cottage, beach access is five minutes north or south at either of the state waysides in Depoe Bay. Also to the north is Fogarty Creek State Recreation Area. Here you can explore wooden footbridges winding thorugh Sitka spruce trees and forests. The nearby creek flows into the beach and picturesque ocean cove below. This area also offers great birdwatching and tide pool viewing.
From the cottage, you can walk also to the nearby shops, restaurants and art galleries in Depoe Bay. Take in the sights, sound, and spray from the Spouting Horns, which are caused by the ocean water being forced up through the natural lava tubes in the seawall. For foodies, plan a special, romantic meal out at Restaurant Beck, just to the south of town, for locally-driven cuisine by a James Beard Award nominated chef.
In the fall and winter, be sure to stop by the Whale Watch Center, and don't forget about a stroll down to the World's Smallest Harbor! Depoe Bay is home to the Wooden Boat Show in April, the Annual Fleet of Flowers in May, and the Native American Style Salmon Bake in September. The bustling town of Lincoln City is a mere 15 minutes north and Newport is easy 20 minutes to the south.
You will not find a better home base for exploring this scenic beach area, whether you make the trek to Newport for a fun-filled day at the aquarium or spend the whole time just hanging out and gazing down at the ocean cove from your cozy perch. But, no matter how you spend your vacation, you'll want to relax and recharge at this serene and comfortable cottage in Depoe Bay.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Pirate Cove cottage very much. It is cozy, very clean, quiet, with a beautiful view from the living room. Perfect for just the two of us.
Something to be aware of is that while the bedroom is separate from the main living room, it does not have a door. So, if you are a light sleeper like me, travelling with an early riser, you will hear everything from the bedroom. Certainly not something that will prevent us from coming back, though.
We will definitely book again!
Whales and sunsets. Quiet. Clean, functional kitchen. Highly recommend.
Amazing view from this nice simple clean one bedroom cottage.
It had everything we needed for our short stay and would stay there again!
Its a lovely cozy cottage. Every time when you locked out to the ocean, you could See a Wale is spotting out. Amazing. Only the fridge is very loud. In the night it nerves a little bit.
Though we had a great time, the pictures are better than description. They make it seem as if you have this amazing deck, which it is, however you are sharing with others. The cleaning on the most part was good, however, the oven was filthy, therefore smoked us out. Access to this amazing little town was incredible. Road noise was very loud.
What I loved about this house is that it is small enough that we don’t have to clean up so much when we leave. It is also very beautiful and clean. The view was astounshing that I could never get tired of the view all day. It was really quiet in the House despite the fact that I could hear one noise that sound as if there is a ball bearing machine going round and round. I was thankful that I got text phone number from the manager in case I needed to call 911 via internet. Their internet connect is very spotty and poor that I cannot make video relay phone calls via internet. What I don’t love is that I didn’t have paper plates with me. The beach walk is wonderful if you are willing to drive over to those beaches.
This house has the best view from the deck. The house has one large bedroom and has been updated recently. Bring your own pans and utensils as the ones that are supplied are older. If you can rent both houses for a really great time. That's what we did and it was truly wonderful!
Overall it was decent. Its just that i couldn't enjoy my dinner, because of the ants
View was great. Cottage was very comfortable and lovely.
This home is just perfect for a getaway for two. The views are absolutely amazing and the deck is a bonus.
We did enjoy our stay. It is a cute little cottage and the view was so beautiful. Walking distance to shops and restaurants too. Overall, we would definitely stay here again.
Great location. I have never actually stayed in Depoe Bay before. The cottage is located just north of the main commercial area of Depoe Bay. Walking distance to restaurants, shops and the seawall where we were delighted to see whales swimming and feeding each day we were there. We were even blessed with good weather. While in Depoe Bay, stop by the Pirate Coffee Company. The owners are great and will gladly share other local attractions for you to visit.
I left a review with a previous email.
This was the best place! Every day we had whales, otters and sea lions playing outside. The view!!!!
Second time staying here and was glad to return.
We had trouble mapping the property as the phone mapping systems try to map it on the South end of town. The Lady at VACASA had the same issue. We did finally find the property. We shared the property and back deck with the neighboring property which was not expected. You will have to drive to get to the beach. Nice view from the property but you will share the experience with another tiny house next door. We would not stay here again but it was clean and worked just fine.
The view is wonderful. Lots of fun to watch the sea lions on the rocks.
Easy walk to the Pirate Cove Coffee Shop. It is on your side of 101, opens at 7:30 (even though the sign says 8:00) and the people are very friendly.
Depoe Bay is one of the best places on the coast to visit.
Had a great time at this wonderful place again. Best part was seeing the bald eagle land in the tree on the deck. Can't wait to go back!
I highly recommend vacasa.
The transaction was seamless.
We loved learning early check in was available and we got a kick out of finding the dollar.
We absolutely love it! The view is stunning and very cozy cabin! Perfect for my husband and 2 young sons and I. We love staying here!!!!!!!
Wonderful quiet spot with a beautiful view
What a wonderful little cottage. The view is spectacular and we loved out stay. The tradition of hiding a one dollar bill is a bonus. We will plan to go back again one day as it was such a great place.
My wife and I had a great time staying here. It's a great place to get away and relax. We will be back.
The views are excellent and the outside deck is excellent spot!
We'd love to stay again when money and time allows. Will also recommend to friends. Due to location, I wouldn't necessarily advise families with young children stay, as it is near a cliff and there are points where a fall could happen if you're not careful. But beyond that, it's a great house with a fantastic view. Had an issue with the wifi, but the staff was extremely quick to respond and everything was great. Had fun and plan to come back again. Thank you!!
Perfect for my husband, our 3 year old and me.
Easy to get settled in & ready to leave. We always wish we could stay just one more day! :)
This beautiful cottage had everything I needed and had an amazing view. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay.
I came down to enjoy a few quiet days of crafting and was so pleased with this sweet cottage. The house is snug, well stocked and has a lovely view. I experienced such peace watching the waves and whales from the deck. This is a delightful place I hope to revisit soon!!!
Great location and view! We were able to see whales from the living room and the spacious deck. I would recommend for a couple. We stayed as a family of four with two little ones. The accommodations were a bit tricky with kids as there is not a door on the bedroom and the deck/yard is on a cliff.
We have been looking for a place not far from home that would be easy access, great views, where we could throw a few things in a bag & just escape for a few days. I think we found it! We will definitely be back!
Very relaxing vacation for my Wife and I, a little Miffed over all the extra fees when no other VRBO does it.
Loved our stay at the cottage. Whale watching from the deck was spectacular. The area is great, close to everything. Try the baked oysters at the Sea Hag! We did day trips up and down the coast. So peaceful and cozy. We'll definitely be back!
The cottage was perfect for us. Clean and comfy with a beautiful deck on the cove filled with harbor seals and amazing views. The deck is shared but hopefully you'll have amazing neighbors like we did. Love this place and will definitely comeback.
This was the perfect romantic getaway for my husband and I and we would definitely come back! The location was amazing and it happened to be whale season! We watched whales all weekend from both the deck and from our living room, while relaxing and getting some much needed peace and quiet.
This cottage was lovely to stay in and had most of everything you would need when staying for more than a few days. The view is amazing and for the most part I felt at home. A walking trail called The North Point pedestrian loop has great views of Pirate Cove and beautiful unobstructed ocean view along a 0.4 mile ocean bluff trail. There are benches you can sit on while watching the sunset. Overall, this is a nice place and would come back again.
The house is so functional, and the view is incredible

We love this cottage and the view can't be beat!
Half a mile walk to the Depoe Bay shops and harbor. Great whale watching and ocean views.
Awesome place with a great view of wildlife!
We truly enjoyed our stay in this cute little cottage and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys relaxing with a glass of wine and watching the waves and the sunsets.
Very cute cottage with a great view and killer deck right on Pirate Cove. Walking distance (.2 miles) to Tidal Raves Restaurant. All around great place to stay.
We had an incredible week for great weather and fun wildlife to watch. Beach walks were great and the food at local restaurants was awesome. Can't wait to go back.
Very clean and tidy cottage with nice sky lights to add light and make it feel larger. Close to coffee and some decent food options. Enjoyed our stay and would come back!
Loved the fireplace and view was incredible! Perfect for a couple. One of the better vacation homes we've stayed in. Haystack has nothing on the Depoe Bay area!
We love the location. We love Oregon beach. But Depoe Bay is the best with beautiful beaches and great spots to take pictures. There are also many good restaurants near by. Our favorite restaurant is Tidal Raves. It has great seafood and amazing view and it is only 3 minutes away walking.
The place is very cute and functional. It is also very clean. We definitely would come back here.
Nice place with bucket list views of the ocean, great food in town. Suggestion shop for groceries before arriving, Lincoln city, Newport or Thriftway 2 MILES NORTH OF TOWN.
Very cozy place, cute and clean. Walking distance to town. It is right on Hwy. 101 but not very noisy. Would stay there again.
My husband and I needed a getaway and this cottage was perfect! We will definitely be coming back! Thank you! : )
This weekend was wonderful, we had many things provided for us including a coffee pot, pots and pans, and even a toaster. The fridge was perfect for food and the layout of the place was cute and cozy! We will hopefully come back again!
Isaac And Genevieve H. Mar 2016
I would definitely stay here again :)
We had a great time. Everything in Depot bay is with in walking distance and the view from the cabin was amazing. We will definitely come back to this cabin again.
If you decide to stay here make a comment about how the bedroom needs a door to add to the privacy and the smell of food from the kitchen lingering in the bedroom then maybe they will spend a couple of hundred to add a door. cute little place
Thank you for your review. We will advise the owner of your comment regarding the door. We are glad to see that you enjoyed the home otherwise!
The property is in a nice location and the traffic was not noticeable at all. The house had not been cleaned from before though.
We apologize that your home had not been cleaned and will be sure to follow-up with housekeeping. We hope you enjoyed the great view!
We loved our stay in cottage 1 this October. The view is breathtaking and never ceases to surprise you when you wake up. The kitchen is fully stocked enough that we were able to cook fresh local seafood every night. The view from your table will far out way any that a restaurant can offer. The house is quite clean and has a queen sized bed. If sharing the house, know that there is no door on the bedroom. The outdoor deck is shared with the second cottage, but we didn't have any problems there. You can always sit in the chairs right outside your door and have an unobstructed view.
Lastly, our only complaint was the lack of wifi access which was advertised. Luckily we did not go there to spend time on our computers, however it was necessary for work purposes. It seems that the router is located in the second cottage and provides no coverage for the other house. Good to keep in mind if you plan to have wifi access while staying in the other. Otherwise, we would definitely recommend staying here and not missing this spectacular view!
We loved staying in Pirate Cove Cottage 1. It has a great view from the deck and living room of the ocean. The renovations they have done are very nice. It is very convenient for a nice walk into town. Only drawback is it is right next to the busy highway with traffic. We would highly recommend staying here though.
My only regret is not staying longer. Views were great, place was comfortable and far enough from the Depoe Bay center that it was quiet. Just the vacation that we needed! Book it and you won't be disappointed!
First off, this place was wonderful. It had an amazing view and the property is very comfortable. However, I felt that the pictures were a bit deceptive. This property is very close to not just Highway 101 and the sidewalk, but also right on top of other properties. As a single female traveler, I really did not feel very safe in the property. There's a sliding door in both the bedroom and the living room, with curtains covering them. The sliding door to the bedroom had the deck to the property next door right next to it. I was never comfortable falling asleep in this property. Was that worth it for the view - well, it was for me. But future descriptions of the property should be clear so that others can make a conscious decision on what they'd choose.
Outstanding! We'll be back
My Wife, Son and I wanted a weekend away and we could not have picked a better place. Clean, comfortable and an incredible view. We spent much of our time on the deck watching the wildlife. We left feeling rejuvenated and will be back again.
A wonderful place to stay, peaceful and wonderful views of the coast. Seals were fun to watch.
We had a wonderful stay in Depoe Bay. Enjoyed the deck and all the fun wildlife in the cove. We watched them for hours. House was very cozy and comfortable. Have recommended this property to several family and friends. We will be back.
Positive: location is great! Negatives: uncomfortable bed/pillows, small bathroom sink, no dishwasher.
Loved the view! The location between Lincoln City and Newport made it very convenient to drive to either. Had a great time, although the bed was a little too firm for our taste. Everything else was wonderful.
Amazing view!!!!!!! The deck is wonderful. House is cozy and perfect for a small family. My wife and our two sons 6 and 3 comfortability stayed! Thank you again and we Defintely look forward to staying @ pirates cove cottage 1 again!
The Pirate Cove 1 was a great place for us. Depoe Bay puts you mid point from Lincoln City and Newport which couldn't be more convenient. Beautiful view, a brief stroll to Pirate Coffee to start the morning and plan the day.
Thank you for the kind words. We are glad you had weather that was advantageous for a nice morning stroll to the coffee shop!
We loved staying at Pirate Cove. The cottage was perfect for a 2 person getaway and you couldn't beat the views anywhere. We spent a lot of time just looking at that. The fireplace was cozy with the chill of evening.
Hello, thank you for your great review! We are happy you had an excellent stay, we hope to see you again soon!
Darling cottage with a view that was incredible. Cottage had not been occupied in weeks and it was not clean when we arrived which was disappointing. A crew should have refreshed it for our arrival. Hopefully this issue will be addressed. Other than that we can't wait to go back.
Thank you for your review. We sincerely apologize for the poor housekeeping you discovered upon your arrival due to the home being unoccupied before your stay. We do have very high cleanliness standards and will follow-up with the housekeeper regarding our expectations and to ensure that touch ups are completed prior to arrivals after periods where the home is unoccupied. We hope you had a wonderful time in your rental home overall and enjoyed your trip to Depoe Bay. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
The view is exactly as shown. And this little cabin will always have that incredible view. But the owners need to make sure all amenities are top notch. The bedding and pillows need to be upgraded so they feel sumptuous, not cheap. And the couch is uncomfortable and hard to sit on because it is a pull out bed. I think a one bedroom cabin should cater to the single traveler or a couple. So don't put in a pull out bed when it is the only piece of furniture to sit on. Comfort should trump all else; bedding and living room furniture should be comfortable. Because after all....you are there to relax.
Whale watch from the back deck. There were seals on the rocks in the cove. Close to so many scenic parks. Loved this place!
The cottage and view were better than we expected. Loved the deck! We were concerned about the road noise but it just wasn't an issue. We will be back!
Could not have a better view anywhere. seals pelicans birds whale spouts waves Perfect. Forgherty creek which is just a few miles north had amazing agates. Tidal waves & the sea hag & the pizza place across from pirate coffee were all real good
Standing on the deck of this charming Depoe Bay beach house, we could view many types of sea birds, seals lounging on rocks below and whales just outside the bay area....we had a lovely time.
We stayed 3 nights, the view was spectacular. Six sea lions were there everyday, the waves were wild while we were there and the sound of the ocean was amazing. The cottage was very comfortable and cozy. Did'nt watch tv or use the internet, just enjoyed the peace and quiet
Thanks for your review. How amazing that you got to see sea lions each day! It sounds wonderful. We're glad you enjoyed the views in this cozy cottage and that you enjoyed some peace and quiet by the ocean!
We loved this cabin! The kitchen was well-stocked with utensils needed to cook. The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows. Loved the view outside the window in the living room/dining room. We did see a couple of whale spouts while eating breakfast! Easy drives to Lincoln City and Newport for activities on the beach or glass blowing or wonderful restaurants. Definitely recommend this cabin for a couple. Hopefully we'll be back!

My wife and I stayed for three days and were so comfortable we stayed an extra day. We also decided to get this place as a Christmas present for my folks. The thoroughly enjoyed their stay as well. The interior feels like a new house. We will stay here again.
This is a wonderful little getaway property with a great view of the cove and all the ocean action. It is next to Hwy 101 but evenings were quiet so it wasn't noticeable. Great for 2 people but any more would be crowded. The only improvement would be to boost the wi-fi signal at the end of the house with the TV. Everything else was great!
Would highly recommend this place and we'd love to come back some day
Very relaxing experience. Very clean and updated. Tv was ok and so was the internet speed. All in all it was great.
Was very pleased overall. Relatively quiet.
We had a lovely stay here! It was as advertised-clean, affordable, and convenient. Here are the things that could be better explained in the advertising. First, the proximity to the next door cottage. It is exceedingly close, and if you want seclusion, this might not be your bag. Second, the proximity to the road. It is very close. Road noise was less than i expected, and probably no worse than in other hotels, but should be advertised more openly to prospective rengers. Overall, it was perfect for our budget and needs and im glad we stayed there.
The view is even better than in the online photo of the bay. We had two days of sunshine with the seals on the rocks and whales blowing close to the shore. There were five days of gray skies, high tides, and lots of action as the waves crashed onto the rocks. Itâ€™s one of those things that a picture and words cannot do justice, you need to experience it and relish the moments you have.
It is an easy trip to Lincoln City or Newport from Depoe Bay. We especially enjoyed walking on Beverly Beach just north of Newport.
The cabin is just right for two. The only door inside is to the bathroom. If privacy is not an issue, the bedroom has plenty of space for sleeping bags or even a queen-sized blow-up mattress. And of course the sofa makes into a bed, but Iâ€™ve never found one that was worth sleeping on.
The cabin is on Hwy. 101, so, yes there is traffic noise 24/7. We had a small fan with us that we ran at night and we were not bothered by the noise. If you are a light sleeper you may want to consider a sound machine.
The cabin was clean and orderly. There were enough pictures and decorator items to give it a homey touch without it being cluttered. The picture window over the dinette was crystal clean as were the two sliding patio doors. They each made an excellent frame for a small piece of paradise.
What a quaint little cottage right on cove. We were lucky and able to see seals and whales every day! Had breakfast and dinner on deck over looking cove and sat by the fire each night. It was awesome!!!!
A great place for a romantic get away. Watch whales from your kitchen window and walk to downtown. Hey, you are less than a block from a liquor store and just over a block from a great little coffee shop with wonderful baked goods (try the marionberry coffee cake). A little too close to the highway but you stop noticing it pretty quickly.
Just a piece of paradise for us-------we were enchanted by the view and the rental. In fact, we had a hard time leaving! Try it----- it's small and perfectly situated on the bay--------- love at first sight for us. We will definitely return!
This is an excellent place to stay. The cottage is charming and cozy - just perfect for two. The view is spectacular and ever changing. We saw whales cruising quite close every day. All in all it was a perfect get away. We highly recommend it.
There is so much positive to say about this rental: spotless, nicely decorated, beautiful view, everything you might need was supplied. The location on Pirate Cove was beautiful - we loved watching the birds. Also, staying in Depoe Bay puts you right between Lincoln City and Newport, if you need "big city". We already want to make plans to come back!
This charming cabin is perfect for a romantic couples get away. With a breathtaking view and a comfortable living room and kitchen perfect for two, this place affords you the choice between going out or staying in. We simply adored the cabin and cove and even had a chance to get to know our neighbors around the fire pit.
Pirate's Cove was the perfect place for our weekend get-away. Romantic, cozy and comfortable with an awesome view and within a short walk to anything we needed. I decided to add on the late check out and that proved to be a very helpful choice. we were able to enjoying tide pooling and shpping in town without the worry of rushing back to pack up. We enjoyed our stay very much and will be staying here on a regular basis.
Was very nice place to stay. Only drawback would be wifi speed. If internet access is needed might not be best place. But, if you want a nice quiet beautiful view and to get away from it all this is a good hide away.
