Huge Castle with Ocean View Decks, 5 Minutes to the Beach - Dog-Friendly

Planning a group getaway or large family retreat? This historic castle - a seven-bedroom Oceanside vacation rental - offers spacious gathering areas, a gourmet main kitchen, a dog-friendly attitude, and stunning panoramic ocean views.

This beautiful and unique vacation home is made up of three distinct areas letting your group experience both togetherness and privacy. The main part of this castle features a spacious living area with room for the whole group. Snuggle down into the sectional sofa for an evening of movies, socializing, and relaxing.

Cook a meal for just a few or up to 17 in the gourmet kitchen. There's custom cabinetry, a breakfast bar, and extras like a coffee grinder, mixer and a blender. There is ample room for at least 17 guests to enjoy dinner at the various seating areas in the main level.

You can watch for whales at the cozy window seat or play games and puzzles while you look out at the ocean and Three Arch Rocks National Wildlife Refuge. There are also balconies and many quiet spots throughout this main space to sit with a book and a glass of wine.

In another section of the home, there is a lovely area with a cozy living room, small full kitchen with an eating area under a turret ceiling, a private covered balcony and gorgeous panoramic views.

The third addition also has a beautifully designed living room, dining room, and full kitchen. This part of the castle also has a balcony and ocean views from many of the windows. Berni's Castle is ideal for up to three families or groups traveling together - each can have their own space, but there are plenty of common areas (indoors and out) to socialize as a group.

This Oregon Coast vacation rental's seven bedrooms and four bathrooms are spread throughout the entire home and offer six queen beds and two twins. Fourteen adults can sleep quite comfortably here, with a maximum occupancy of 17. There is even room for a child to sleep on the comfortable window seat.

Other amenities throughout the whole home include three sets of washers and dryers, WiFi, a CD player, and an iPod dock. There is a TV and DVD player in each of the three units, as well as three private deck areas. There is also a large common deck with ocean views and a grill for guest use. Guests can also make unlimited long distance calls in the United States.

From here, it's just a 5-minute walk to beach access. Oceanside boasts a long stretch of sand, perfect for exploring and going on long, leisurely walks. On days you don't feel like cooking, the whole group can wander down to the popular Roseanna's Cafe for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

In nearby Tillamook, you can fish, golf, or sample an array of cheese and ice cream at the Tillamook Cheese Factory. If you want to get out and explore further, take the 40-mile drive along the Three Capes Scenic Route - just expect to stop the car frequently for scenic viewpoints and photo ops.

A stay at this legendary Oceanside vacation home includes gorgeous 180-degree ocean views, modern amenities, and a great location just steps from the sand!

* Please note: Oceanside has very limited cell phone service *

*Please note that Units 1 and 2 each are two-bedroom suites with queen beds and are on the same level as street parking out front. Whereas Unit 3 features two queen bedrooms and one room with two twins.

*Please note that this home has 17 steps down to the front entry door.

Plenty of space, games, and all you need in the kitchen! I rented the 3 units for a family holiday weekend and it was such an incredible time and home that help fill memorable moments.
Jeffrey O. Feb 2022
Nice set-up with individual units for large groups. Spectacular views!! Short, easy walk to the beach!! Everything you need for a vacation at the beach.
Kim C. Oct 2021
The 3 unique apartments were wonderful to be able to have space between meals. The view is spectacular from each unit. We had 11 adults, 2 kids, 2 dogs Excellent experience for all. The BBQ was out of propane. I called and they said to keep the receipt. Still waiting to hear back on reimbursement for the new tank? Other than that very nice place.
Jamie B. Oct 2021
This was a wonderful house with a wonderful view. Would definitely stay here again.
Nancy T. Jul 2021
We love this property for our family reunions. 7 bedrooms, main room can accommodate all of us for meals, with privacy in the other two units as well. Good cooking kitchen and can feed them all in the main room. Easy walk to the beach. The addition of the new outside deck makes it even more perfect.
James S. Jul 2021
The 'castle' is broken up into 3 seperate units to be clear. It was actually nice having the divided space because so people could have some privacy. Views are amazing, house is kept well.

10 family members vacationed in Berni's Castle, and our time in this home was so wonderful! The view is incredible. We had all the comforts we needed, and the home is really well-equipped. We ran low on propane for the grill, and they even offered to bring a replacement tank on the 4th of July. We liked the fairly steep walk down to and back from the beach, because it helped work off the calories from Tillamook cheese and ice cream, wine and the incredible food from Rosanna's cafe and Blue Agate Cafe in Oceanside. Oceanside Beach State Park, Tunnel Beach, and Short Beach are very close and all phenomenal. Blue Heron French Cheese Company and Tillamook Creamery were both really cool. We enjoyed the hour drive north to Ecola State Park and all the picturesque towns in between. We loved the hour and 20 minute drive to Depoe Bay to watch lots of whales with the helpful and friendly Whale's Tail Charters and all the lovely towns on the Three Capes Scenic Tour. The views from Cape Meares are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen, and it's only a few minutes away. We found the 2 grocery stores in Netarts to have most anything we wanted, and they are only a few minutes from the house. Safeway in Tillamook has pickup available, and it's only about 15 minutes away. Don't miss Tillamook cheese, Tillamook ice cream, Willamette wine, and Jacobson salts. Twist Wine Company has great wine made in the Willamette Valley, and they have a tasting room in Pacific City. We flew into Portland and loved seeing Multnomah Falls, just 20 minutes from the airport. I recommend using Sasquatch Shuttle & Parking. You can see many waterfalls and the Columbia River from their routes, and you can hop on and off their busses all day for one low price. There were so many incredible things about this home and the area, and it was the trip of a lifetime!

Oceanside is absolutely delightful! Bernie’s is big enough to accommodate a large family and still give people a little space. The walk to the beach is fun and short, though it might be difficult for handicapped or those lugging toddlers! Those who need to can drive. Parking is good. The views and decks are spectacular!!

This house has three separate apartments. The largest which is on the lower level has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The other 2 units above each have 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. All three are lovely with unbeatable views from inside as well as the decks. You must go outside to access each unit. So, it does divide one's group more than a large single family home. But the larger unit does have enough seating for 12 around the dining table plus a second smaller table and a breakfast bar. There's also plenty of silverware, plates, etc for a large group in this unit. The beds are all queens with the exception of one room with 2 twin beds. All beds were comfortable. The couches and chairs are also comfortable and the overall decor is very tasteful. Management responded very quickly to the couple of small issues we had. The walk to the beach is short but steep. The cafe and restaurant in town are both excellent. We had take out from both as there is no indoor or outdoor dining during the Covid shut down. There are small grocery stores in nearby Netarts and larger stores with pick up service in Tillamook. We loved this home and had a much needed escape from Portland.

This is our second time at Berni's for an annual fishing adventure in the winter. It's a big place with an amazing view and lots of space for lots of folks. The house is well stocked with all necessary cookware and drinkware. Just bring your self, food and drink and have a great time. One small bummer is that the bbq's never really work very well. I realize they are getting beaten up by the salty Oregon coastal fog but they really need to be updated more frequently.
Manager response:
Thank you for telling us about your stay! We do wish you had called about the BBQ so we could have assisted you; maintenance has been scheduled to check and repair. We hope to see you again!
Debra L. Nov 2019
This worked so well for our large, multi-generational family gathering. Families with kids used upstairs units for sleeping and we spent the day, evening and all our meals in the larger unit. Kitchens are very well equipped. Furniture is comfy, even on the deck. The appliances in the main unit are big and very good. And really, that view cannot be beat.
Elizabeth D. Oct 2019
The views were incredible, the house well stocked. One unit was not as clean as the others. But overall a very nice place to rent.The walk to the beach was a bit longer, but worth it!
Manager response:
We are so happy you enjoyed the views at the home! We are sorry it was not as clean as it should have been. We hold our homes to a very high standard of cleanliness so this is never something we want to hear. We are following up with our local staff to make sure this does not happen again! Thank you for your feedback, we hope to host you again soon!

The pictures do not capture the beauty of this place. We were there with 2 other families, 15 total and the place worked out wonderfully for us. It was clean, comfortable and centrally located. I cannot say enough about the ocean views from every unit. They were breathtaking. Things to do close by: Munson Creek Falls, "short hike to the falls", Creamery in Tillamook, clamming in Netarts was a blast! Pelican Brewery in Pacific City is right on the beach, beautiful view with sand dunes. Ocean drive is also just beautiful and we loved all the trees and lush greenery on the drive from Portland. We also saw elk in the stream on our drive to Oceanside which was exciting. It was a fabulous trip! Thank you so much!
Tiffany H. Jan 2019
This is the third year we've been to Berni's Castle. We love everything about the home, from the open layout, the fully stocked kitchen, the games and the incredible little nook with amazing ocean views. We hope to come back every year for a visit.
Karen V. Oct 2018
I reccomend Bernie's Castle for all large get togethers. Families can have their private space and join in the main area for meals, games, celebrations,etc. The view is perfect, especially for rainy days when staying dry and warm and still enjoying the beach.
Lynn M. Aug 2018
Four generations of our family traveled to Oceanside from as far away as NYC to celebrate our Mother's 100th birthday. The 3-day weekend was magnificent and Bernie's Ocean View Castle was the perfect home away from home for all our families- age 3 to 100.
Nancy L. Aug 2018
Berni's Castle was everything I hoped it would be. It was large enough to gather our big group. Yet little ones and older ones could get away from everyone else for a nap. Well stocked. Thanks
Katherine R. Aug 2018
We rented the whole house and had everyone split up into the three sections. It’s nice because we can all congregate together, or have separate spaces to go to if needed. It was very ideal for gaps in the age groups in our large family 😁
The view is incredible as long as it isn’t foggy!
Jamey R. Aug 2018
7 bedrooms gave our 6 families ample space. Main kitchen was well appointed to prepare meals for entire group. Main deck provided great space for whale watching!
Denise L. Apr 2018
Great view of the stormy spring weather! Close to the beach. Nice, quiet neighbors. Construction happening on new expanded deck (so the temporary orange mesh railings didn't make for good pictures) but we couldn't use it anyway because of the storm. Would stay again. Only wish the three units connected to each other.
Ruchira B. Mar 2018
This is a great property for a big group. The location of the house is excellent with great views. There is a huge deck under construction (which temporarily obstructs view) once completed it will be the best place to hang out in the summer. However the deck will obstruct view from the beautiful window side daybed in unit 3 where our party hung out a lot as it turned out to be a rainy weekend. The house is very well stocked with utensils, bakeware and even spices. The variety of board games and puzzles kept our kids busy on a very rainy weekend.
View from all other units remain unobstructed.
Regina P. Jul 2017
We loved this place because our large family could easily be accommodated but with the three private units we also had needed privacy and quiet time. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay was here. The views were spectacular, the town quiet and perfectly non-touristy, the beaches clean and welcoming. All great!
Cindy L. Jul 2017
We got all of my siblings together at this place when the most distant brother was in town for a visit. The three units were perfect for our number (13) and gave our 5 individual couples some privacy as well as plenty of options for place to be together. It was a short enough distance to walk to the beach, too. And having awesome views meant that even if it was too wet to go out, we could still enjoy the beach views. Loved our stay here. Would love to come back.
Jennifer F. Jun 2017
There's lots of space for kids and adults to have their own space. Kitchens have everything you need, furniture is up to date and comfy. This was our 2nd stay at Bernie's and we will certainly be back!
Suzanne E. Apr 2017
Three families rented the entire castle and it was perfect. Despite a rainy spring break, we had a blast. The view from each unit is spectacular and it was fun watching the hang gliders and parasailers when there was a break in the rain. We enjoyed a crab feast one night so appreciated the crab crackers and picks stocked in kitchens. We also celebrated a birthday and was pleased to find baking essentials as well to bake a cake. Highly recommend this property and the quaint town of Oceanside.
Ratnadip P. Mar 2017
Great place to enjoy with friends and family. Specially liked the concept of three separate units in the house.
Kenia B. Mar 2017
This was an amazing place to stay, and had incredible views. Every convenience was there, and the houses were very clean and well kept.
Tiffany H. Jan 2017
My huge family rented this house for our yearly three day weekend vacation and it was absolutely amazing. We arrived at night and were shocked in the morning when we saw the incredible views. The layout is ideal and the kitchen is fully stocked. The daybed in the living room is the icing on the cake. We all decided that this will be our dedicated home away from home and we can't wait to stay next year.
Nancy T. Sep 2016
Fabulous property, incredibly well equipped. While each of the units is great individually, the combination is perfect for a large group. They have thoughtfully outfitted the largest unit with sufficient cutlery, cookware and plates that you can feed a large group. We will definitely return annually.
Sylla K. Aug 2016
Our family ranged in age from 93 to 5. We loved that some could have their own little apartment for a bit of down time when needed. Everyone managed their own beach walks and visits to brew pubs (Tillamook) and cheese factory. Best of all, the main kitchen was perfectly equipped and able to handle those who wanted to cook.
The beds were comfortable, the views spectacular, and the sun was shining hard. Absolutely the perfect place to all get together - we will return.
Sally S. Aug 2016
We rented all three units for our family to celebrate our mother's 95th birthday and everyone's needs were met, from age 20 months to 95 years. The lower unit, #3, in the middle easily accommodated our family gatherings for meals, playing games and conversations. The layout of all three units allowed each family to have some privacy when needed. Beautiful views and access to the beach was good, too. Overall feedback from family was "two thumbs up!" on this rental for our special occasion!
Barbara M. Jul 2016
Berni's Castle is an amazing and beautiful place to stay. It is so well maintained and the views are spectacular. We've been coming to Oceanside for years but had never stayed at the beach. We had a wonderful family reunion with our kids and 8 small children (ages 9 months to 5 years) who loved the beach and all the activities nearby including the Tillamook Cheese Factory and the new rail biking tour from Bay City to Tillamook. We highly recommend Berni's Castle!
Bruce R. Jul 2016
We rented all 3 units, all very well equipped. It provided privacy and separation as well as enough space in unit 3 to accommodate a large dinner party... not sitting at the same table. We are vary familiar with Oceanside... my wife and I had our first dinner date at Roseanne's almost 30 years ago. It is still one of our favorite beaches.
Ellen B. Jun 2016
This is the perfect location for a family vacation! We enjoyed having one unit to gather in (Unit 3) but being able to go back to our own units to sleep, especially for the younger children who needed to go to bed earlier. Beautiful views and well equipped home made everything comfortable for all. Would gladly stay here again.
Kathryn Z. Jul 2015
This rental has spectacular views from all windows. Everything you need is there. We rented all three units and stayed for a week. It was so relaxing. My whole family loved it.
