My husband and I just spent longer than we anticipated at this cosy, beachfront home-away-from-home, because we could not get enough of the magnificent sunsets, the ambiance and the romance of this gem of a place on the Pacific North West coast. The unit was comfortable, tastefully appointed and so well equipped with a library of books and videos and binoculars (for whale watching) provided by the owner/managers, Jeff and Julie. They have thought of everything! It felt like being at home only better! The kitchen was fully equipped with spices and every kitchen utensil you could possibly need. The rooms were spotless and with very comfortable beds. We slept soundly lulled by the sound of the ocean below us. Jeff and Julie could not have been more helpful with suggestions for restaurants and places to visit (check out the nearby light house, sea lions at Newport, the covered bridges and the brewery on the beach!). We were fortunate to have sunshine for most of our stay but the magnificent view is ever-changing - we even enjoyed our one foggy day! Public access to the beach is only one door away and the condos are walking distance from the main road with interesting antique stores, theatre, restaurants etc.It was the perfect spot to unwind and relax before heading home to Australia after a hectic touring holiday of the America west. We will certainly be telling our friends about this amazing holiday destination - Oregon's best kept secret!
