Wonderful Beach House

Breath taking views with easy access to a lovely beach. The house is very comfortable and had everything we needed for our family vacation.

Perfect!!!

Edens Garden Cottage at Netarts was wonderful!! The view and access to the beach are perfect. The home is very comfortable and relaxing. I would stay here again. Thank you Doug for having the perfect place to celebrate my 60th Birthday with family and friends.

Stunning views, beautiful garden, lots of wildlife and beautiful home.

We had a great vacation in an awesome setting. Beautiful home with unbelievable views. Nice beach walk to wonderful restaraunts in Oceanside and Netarts. Exploring the rocks at minus tides was impressive. Great opportunities for hiking in nearby state parks. Kayak Tillamook provides great kayaking tours.

Perfect Coast Vacation

Edens Garden Cottage had everything our family needed for a relaxing coast vacation. The views from the deck and two of the three bedrooms are spectacular. Private access to a beach where one can walk, safely play in the water with little kids, and dig for clams at low tide made it fun for all ages. The house is stocked with everything needed for preparing meals plus a small grocery store a few blocks away for any last minute items.

Beautiful, family friendly home

We had a great time. The home was beautiful and well appointed. The community of Netarts is charming. The beach was a perfect place to play with my young children. We had a lovely and relaxing time.

The place was perfect, gorgeous view, immaculate

We came for Christmas, the owners thought of everything, I have never rented a place that was stocked so well with every item you might possible need the only complaint I can think of was it took a long time to heat up the house when we arrived we could see our breath inside, but wanting to save on electricity bill made that understandable the private 90 stairs down to the ocean were very well maintained , the house and bedrooms were very cozy and so clean, the view from every room was outrageous, the details down to the giant dog bed very thoughtful, the owner got back to us right away when we needed the code to the cable TV we plan on returning soon I highly recommend this beach house.

Last minute weekend away

This place is amazing, the location can’t be beat. Gorgeous views of the river mouth and ocean from the cozy little beach cottage... I never wanted to leave. We will be back! It’s a true gem of a place.

Amazing views and great beach access. Cottage was truly charming.

We had a wonderful experience. It was perfect for the 4 of us (2 adults, 12 year old and 3 year old). The little market 100 meters away saved us many times (marshmellows, firewood, kite, etc). Walked along the beach to Oceanside every day, gorgeous views. Would recommend this stay to anyone. Thanks for all.

Incredible view and great beach to walk on

We had a wonderful time at the Blue Rose. It was very comfortable with many touches that made it feel like home. The view was incredible and though there are steps down to the beach they are low rise and nicely spaced so it made the walk down and back up easy. The beach is great for walking as you can go quite a distance. The house was very quiet and private. We are looking forward to our next visit already.

Best birthday ever!

I often dream and peruse for beach rentals... but I thought for my birthday I would treat myself to more than a day trip to the ocean. I really like the Tillamook/Three capes area and thus, I happened upon the Blue Rose Cottage. From the pictures it looked cozy enough so I booked it. So much more than pleasantly surprised when we walked in. Even though you drive through the bustling metropolis of Netarts to get there and it's also nestled in with other buildings, it is a relatively private house. I liked that is was a charming older home, not so much like the cookie cutter vacation homes they seem to building down the coast line. The windows with a view where amazing! The place was simple, clean and quaint. The kitchen was stocked well with cooking utensils, among other things, we grilled and ate like kings (and queen) for three days. The weather was perfect escape from portland's 100 degree weather. The walks along the beach were incredible. There are lots of things within short driving distance to do. And, there is a little Deli/convenient store couple blocks away for when you said you weren't going to eat ice cream on this trip but then "just had to have it" I think it was one of my best birthdays to date. Thank you Doug and family for providing us with a wonderful cottage to get out of town and relax. Rich took his place by the window, I took my place on the deck and we read, drank wine and relaxed... so needed. Again, Thank you.

J, love
