We’re John and Mary, lovers of the ocean and parents to a whole passel of kids– ten to be exact. We’ve been vacationing on the Oregon coast with our family since our children were babies. It’s our place to slow down, to connect, to make memories that last, whether it be running on the beach, playing games together at night, or exploring all that the Oregon coast has to offer families.
When you’re vacationing with parents, children, inlaws, and even grandkids, not just any home will do. You need big open places for people to gather. Plenty of seating in the dining room. Lots of bathrooms so you don’t have to wait forever for a shower. There should be bunk beds in unexpected places, and quiet retreats for couples, and ocean views out west-facing windows. Cousins need space to play away from their parents, and mothers need quiet spaces for little ones to nap in the afternoons. A retreat in every sense of the word.
Location matters too. There should be sandy beaches for the beach-combers and water lovers among you. Hiking and running trails for the athletes. Restaurants and farmer’s markets and galleries and shops. Maybe even an award-winning aquarium or two nearby.
Details matter. A lot. After years of vacation research we set out to build a beach retreat of our own, one that pulled together all the best details of places we’ve stayed over the years in an affordable, beautiful way. We think we’ve succeeded, and we’d love to see your family enjoying our home as well.
If you love the ocean like we do, and if you long for times of connection and rest and refreshment with the ones you love, we would love to share this special place with you and the ones you love.
