The Oregon Coast is filled with charming beach towns with dramatic landscapes of rocky and sandy dunes. A few minute’s inland will take adventurists to stunning forests and preserved lands. From National Parks, bays, quaint towns and tasty seafood, a coastal trip could be just what you need. One could take US Route 101 all the way up the coast, stopping at all these cool Airbnbs along the way.

Shut the front door, and never leave—just by viewing the shingled exterior with massive platform deck aimed straight toward the waves, you know the cottage is special. Inside has been lightly, neutrally renovated, almost as to not upstage the sunset views from the picture windows of the Newport cottage.
Perched on a cliff in South Beach, the modest but cozy interior is met with a wrap-around deck, from where the complex coast can be fully appreciated. Huge windows let in the light and make for more ocean glimpses, and the beach below is private and available to you as a guest. This means those sunrise walks are going to be extra relaxing.
Simultaneously amongst the trees and on a steep hill/cliff overlooking the ocean—this Airbnb offers quite the dreamy combo. With a polished rustic feel on the inside, The Bluebird House is the coziest beach getaway. Little donkeys even dwell among the property, and the friendly host is happy to introduce you, or even take you on a hiking adventure. Samuel Boardman Park and deserted beaches are right below the beloved treehouse in Gold Beach.
Want to camp the lush coastal lands of Oregon? Look no further than The Crab Shack, a wee Airstream trailer, with a body style you may have never even seen. Guests slightly “rough it”, if you want to call it that because you are in the midst of the pristine Cape Sebastian State Park, which offers coastal trails and beaches. Cook outside and soak in the pond views, or snuggle up inside on a chilly Oregon night.
It should be an indication of how stunning the views actually are when the couch is facing the humongous windows rather than a television. Simple, but with unique wood features like the spiral staircase with loft access, the hike can sleep around 6 people. A path leads to the ocean waters below, in Port Orford.
Slightly inland from Bandon is a mesmerizing little tepee in a meadow beside the Coquille River. Two queen beds sit simplistically within the authentic tent, or you could doze off by the fire pit while gazing at the bright burning stars. Guests get to shower outside, and even the private three-sided toilet platform faces toward the spanning views, turning even the most unpleasant things beautiful moments.
Near Coos Bay, this home doesn’t have to be right on the water to have major appeal for potential travelers—its views are of the awe-inspiring forests of Oregon. An interesting shaped exterior continues inside with rounded walls and nooks. Some older mid-century attributes still look brand new as they mesh with high-end characteristics like floor to ceiling windows and a patio that belongs in Tuscany.
Architecturally unique, the living room ceiling dramatically slopes upward to accommodate massive windows for taking in the beach that is steps away. Waldport is known for its fishing, free crabbing Dock, whale watching and a modern masterpiece, the Alsea Bay Bridge. But if you just want to chill in the generously spaced oceanfront dwelling, that’s a vacation all on its own.
Lined with windows, the scenic living room is equipped with a wood planked fireplace for extra cozy nighttime snuggles. Of course, that’s after you watch the sunset on the spacious deck, then have a soak in the water view hot tub. Pups are also welcome and there’s a fenced part of the yard. To get to the beach, there’s a quarter-mile path that can be a bit rugged at times, but it’s not too far of a journey. Lincoln City has plenty of commercial fun, but one can disconnect when watching for wildlife while kayaking.
Simple yet high-end, woodsy yet beachy, snug yet airy—this dual personality “A-frame”, has an inviting wood-paneled interior, with plenty of stark white accents to keep the look wonderfully light. From the full kitchen, upstairs loft, spa-like bathrooms and wide outdoor deck, there’s a place to lounge, no matter what the weather is like. A fire pit sits right off the patio, for time spent s’mores roasting and telling ghost stories.
