Overview

About the property

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.

Great cottage, excellent use of space and handled the five of us, ages 11-68, very comfortably. Combined with spectacular view and direct beach access, Sea Gem is a perfect way to enjoy the Oregon Coast!

great little place right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and the location. First time using VRBO and we had a few little gliches (mostly because I didn't know how the system worked) I would stay there again.

Outstanding view of the ocean and the cottage was just perfect. I'd like to give it 6 stars.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very well stocked with all of the essentials. Just buy food. Don't plan on baking as there is no oven. They have a little toaster oven instead. Seriously though this is a great little cottage.

Our Favorite

  • 5 of 5

Sea Gem is the best find on the Oregon Coast. This was our fourth visit and we have never been disappointed. Beautifully furnished. Cozy. Comfortable. And the view! Our only complaint, it's hard to find a weekend when it's available!!

Wonderful, perfect, beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, bright, clean....had everything we needed. Loved sitting on the back deck, or protected front entry, or even just looking out the huge window. The stairs going down to the ocean were fine! The beach was huge, and can walk in either direction to parks. Plenty of room. Bathroom was very large. Nice shower. All the needed kitchen items were there...including garlic press and wine opener! Beds and bedding were comfortable! Furnishing were comfortable. Washer and dryer was a great plus! Only suggestions...1- we arrived at night. Foggy, dark. The road had no shoulder, and is very well traveled. It was very difficult to find the driveway. Please put a larger marker, and maybe light. The other issue is having to back onto the road. Yikes! Not sure how you'd get any type of turn around space, but being able to pull out forward would be a huge help!!! The area around the home has so many opportunities. You can walk south to next town (altho it would be quite a walk!). Drive into Newport! So much to do there. South is also Ona Beach. Many trails, paths, and an information center. But, just sitting on the back deck in the large comfy chairs, srating at the ocean is entertainment enough. Also, received our deposit back within days!
