The space

The Tide Pool is one of eight condos in our building. Cuddle up to the fireplace, or step out onto the ocean balcony, and enjoy the amazing sight and sound of the mighty Pacific!

Sleeps 2-4 people; it has a queen bed in the bedroom, and a sleeper sofa in the front room with all the linens to make into a double bed. The affordable price makes this oceanview condo a treasure!

This ground-level condo is equipped with basic spices (salt, pepper, garlic salt, lemon pepper, onion powder, and Italian seasoning) plus oil and oil spray. We also have coffee filters, and an adequate array of cooking pans, pots, bowls, casserole dishes, and utensils. If something you need is missing, please ask Mike the manager...he is very good at finding just what you want! Due to odors that stay around a long time, no cooking fresh seafood in the condo, please.

Guest access

One block to Highway 101 with its many restaurants and curio shops. There are fifty gentle steps with one handrail down to the beach sand, or DRIVE on the ramp to the beach!

During April - Sept, many people like to park their cars on the beach (right below the condo) when the tide is out! But twice a day, the tide rolls in, and clears everybody out!!!

Bring your own BBQ to enjoy at the beach, or bring some starter wood to light a campfire on the beach! (The driftwood is often wet and hard to start without dry wood from home!).

Interaction with guests

Mike and Rosie are the on-site managers and very helpful, plus they can count :) At the time of booking, you can view the Welcome Letter inside AirBnb's House Manual and get the code for the front door key lockbox, so you can let yourself into our condo anytime after 4 pm.

For your planning purposes: our rates are based on occupancy. Extra guests over the number of two cost only $5/person/night, and were quoted in your price if you included the total persons in your party. This makes our condo affordable for couples or families. If you arrive with additional guests who were undeclared, our extra person charge is $10/person/night.

Other things to note

This is a vacation rental condo. In an effort to offer an awesome beach experience at a minimal price, we provide clean towels and linens for each guest's stay, but we do not have daily housekeeping nor provide clean towels daily.

We do provide bath soap bars, complimentary shampoo and conditioner in separate bottles, as well as complimentary coffee for a day or two (depending on how much one consumes :)

It's very easy to step outside and walk around to the edge of the lawn and enjoy the ocean air and sights, downlooking from the bluff to view the tide pools and people on the beach below.

BRING BINOCULARS for your trip! From here, you can watch ships, whales, people, birds, and vehicles stuck in the sand...great fun!

Two night minimum stay. It takes one night to unwind and relax, and the second night to really enjoy yourself! Plus, we are busy enough that we can't push our housekeeping staff to clean any faster!

No smoking.
No pets.

The lodging tax of 11.1% is already included in the nightly rate.

The Tide Pool is in the upscale Oceanlake Historic District, conveniently located close to a ramp to actually drive onto the beach sand!

For the shoppers in your group, Tanger Mall on Highway 101 in Lincoln city has name-brand outlet shopping for those who wish to cruise the shops, as well as many antique stores and curio shops.

The Chinook Winds Casino and Convention Center is just 2 miles north, with an indoor golf resort, seafood dining, concerts and entertainment, and 23 table games.

Bring some firewood and starter and enjoy a campfire on the beach. It's state-owned property and perfectly legal without any permit!

'Keep the fire small as a lawn chair and west of the vegetation line and extinquish with water, not sand.' (Oregon State Parks rules)

Bring roasting sticks and marshmallows and hotdogs and you'll have a very fun and memorable meal :)

Chinook Winds Casino operates a shuttle bus, which comes right past our condo. Call the driver at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) to schedule pickup. The shuttle services 42 hotels in town, so they do not stop in front of each place, especially if it's raining! But if you call the driver, he knows to look for you. The shuttle leaves the casino every hour, on the hour. and traverses Lincoln City down to the south end of town to Mo's Restaurant at 51st St, then returns on NW Harbor (our street). Operates weekends only: Fri/Sat 4pm-2am, Sun 4 pm-midnight.

The local Chamber of Commerce sponsors a fun program called 'Finders Keepers' and annually hides 3000 hand blown glass sand dollars and Japanese sea floats along the 7 1/2 miles of Lincoln City beach! Be sure to walk the beach in front of your condo and look along the cliffs and among the grass and driftwood for these valuable collector items!

Devils Lake, deep only in terms of historic folklore, is 1/3 mile wide, 3 miles long, and reaches a depth of only 22 feet. Nine species of freshwater fish beckon the fisherman, while water sports such as windsurfing, water skiing, knee-boarding and jet skiing engage other sports enthusiasts. Flowing from Devils Lake is the 'D' River, which holds the title of one of the World's Shortest Rivers. From its source at Devils Lake, the river reaches its destination of the Pacific is a mere 120 feet.

Just 30 miles south is the town of Newport on Yaquina Bay, with it's working fleet of fishing vessels, plus sea lions basking on the docks and dozens of quaint bayfront shops and curio stores and restaurants.

Very clean space with an amazing view with everything you need to have a homey experience! We appreciated Mike's help with the fireplace. :) Lincoln City is beautiful and we were happy to have a place like this to come home to each evening.

All the basics with a spectacular view. A lot of rules, cooking restrictions, out door smoking restrictions, bathroom towel usage restrictions; Most everywhere you look in the condo there's a sign with some type of rule posted on it. It brings down the vibe of vacation, most places leave it at be respectful but here they really spell it out for you in every way.

We had a great time in Lincoln City and this was just the perfect place for us to stay a couple of nights. Great location close to lots of good food, shops and of course the beach! The Tide Pool was always a nice and cozy place to come back to whenever we'd go out. There was plenty of free entertainment looking out onto the beach from the room watching people drive around or fly kites. We also enjoyed a fire as suggested on the beach one night and loved it! We never had to talk to or get any help from the manager/staff but everyone around the place was very friendly! We would definitely stay here again :)

The place was fantastic. Amazing view of the beach and a short walk to get to the beach. Place was clean and well put together. It was on the first floor so there were neighbors above that could be heard, but no issues other than hearing some footsteps every once in a while. Overall a great place for a weekend escape.

The pictures do not do it justice. The place was amazing and cozy. Loved everything about the place, the beach and surrounding restaurants and shops. Everything you need is close by.
