The Tide Pool is perched on a grassy cliff, just 50 feet up from the beach sand.  It's really not possible to get any closer to the ocean, and keep your feet dry!  When the tide is out, patches of rocky pools are exposed for treasure hunting and delight.   This ground level condo is one of ten in the building, and has a queen bed in a private bedroom on the street side, plus a small double sofa bed in the front room for an extra adult or two kiddos.  With a key-coded front door, you can arrive as early or late as you wish at check-in time and disturb no one.  Make your own meals in our kitchen and enjoy seaside dining at it's best!  Some guests have called this "dinner and a show" as watching beachgoers and waves can get pretty entertaining at times! 

Our kitchen is equipped with pots and pans, microwave, stove and oven, basic spices (salt/pepper, oil and oil spray, Italian season, garlic salt, onion powder, lemon pepper) dishes and baking sheets, blender, and pizza cutter.  You might even discover the joys of washing your own dishes in warm soapy water, since we do not have a dishwasher!  Other amenities include a shower stall in the bathroom, coat closet, ironing board and iron, and coffee maker. 

After dinner, sit on the balcony and sip a refreshing drink while watching the sun set or whales migrate or vehicles play "dare" with the waves (yes, there really is a quarter-mile stretch for beach driving!)  Or enjoy the warmth of our fireplace while curled up on the couch, watching our Samsung smart TV.  The condo also has wifi, so entertainment options are many.!

Access the beach with excellent steps and handrails, or by driving down with your vehicle.  Take some firewood and newspaper to enjoy a beachfire with the kids and roast marshmallows!  Whether you enjoy hanging out at the Casino, or shopping for souvenirs up on Highway 101 (one block away), or beach combing...The Tide Pool is your home away from home!

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

No pets or companion animals in our private condo. No smoking in the condo or on the balcony. No seafood cooking in the condo, please.

ONE off-street parking spot provided for this condo; other vehicles in party please park on adjacent side streets.

Our charge for extra guests (more than your reservation is booked for) is only $5/person/night, but if undeclared guests show up, the charge is $10/person/night.


This condo is in the upscale Oceanlake Historic District, conveniently located close to a ramp to actually drive onto the beach sand! Beach access is via 50 gentle stairs (with one handrail) or a paved ramp to drive down!  In fact, 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!!!

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.

Chinook Winds Casino operates a shuttle bus, which comes right past our condo. You may call the driver at (541) 921-5100...to schedule pickup. 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 Ave (our street). Operates on weekends only:  FRI and SAT...4 pm - 2 am, 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.

Making memories

We have stayed at A Vista for several years and always have enjoyed the comfortable homey atmosphere. Having coffee on the deck in the morning or cocktails in the evening, we never get tired of the ocean view. The fireplace is certainly an added attraction. Really like the recent remodeling touches also. The furnished kitchen leaves you lacking for nothing. There was even a bag of ice in the refrigerator. We have referred a lot of our friends also, knowing the place will always be clean and inviting.

Wonderful Winter Stay

We had an absolute wonderful time during our stay at The Tide Pool. The condo is clean, comfortable and exactly as described/pictured. Being right on the ocean with a balcony made for lovely views morning, afternoon and night + super easy to take walks along the beautiful beach. We were there in the winter so the fireplace was an extra cozy touch and perfect way to end our days. Teresa was also a great communicator, responding to my booking inquiry promptly and getting me all the details for a great stay.

VRBO: Beautiful Location and Welcoming Interior

This little retreat is much cuter on the inside than the outside. It's super homey and the perfect getaway. The location and the view are amazing! It was very clean, and everything about it was nearly perfect. The one thing I would say is that the bed was not great. At least in this particular suite it really needs replacing. Honestly everything else was so perfect that we over looked this because we weren't there to worry about sleeping anyway. We sat on the deck late into the night and watched the tide roll in, and then went to the tide pools in the morning. We would definitely stay here again!!
