Oceanfront Cottage with Free WiFi, Full Kitchen, & Fireplace

This oceanfront, two-bedroom, two-bathroom vacation cottage in Depoe Bay boasts amazing water views and is the perfect choice for an old-fashioned family vacation, or just a fun getaway for up to six friends. Sitting right above the crashing waves of the Pirate Cove, this single-level beach home offers both historic charm and modern amenities.

Step into the living room where you'll be greeted with hardwood floors, a comfortable futon-style couch, reclining easy chair, and a decorative retro wood stove. On cool coastal evenings, you can sit back with a martini or old-fashioned in style. There's a flatscreen TV with cable and a DVD player for watching movies, and WiFi throughout the house in case you need to catch up on email.

This bright, open space also includes a dining room table right next to a large set of windows with stunning ocean views. Spend your meals socializing as a group and watching the waves crash into the cove below. This is also a wonderful viewing spot for nesting seabirds and observing sea lions sunning themselves out on the rocks.

Just outside the cottage is a well-maintained lawn and deck, where you may be lucky enough to catch a view of an eagle soaring by. There's even a carved wooden bench just out the back door to grab a few quiet moments with a book or just watch the ocean. A briquette barbecue is located out on the deck for a late afternoon feast outdoors. After dinner, you'll definitely want to linger at the outdoor table and keep an eye on the setting sun.

The full kitchen continues the retro-design but with all the modern appliances needed to create vacation meals, from fruit salad and French toast in the mornings to fish tacos with all the fixings at night. A fun, lemon yellow kitchen table completes the room and provides extra space for culinary projects or just enjoying a quick snack. Best of all, the dishwasher will have everything cleaned up quickly, so there'll be plenty of time to join in on a board game in the living room.

The spacious master bedroom has a queen sized bed, bedside tables and reading lamps, and a soft, plush, ocean blue bedspread. You'll definitely feel relaxed in this serene space, while you lay back and listen to the ocean sounds through the window. The private master bath includes the original claw foot tub, as well as a shower.

A second bedroom features a queen bed. Perfect for older kids or anyone who's a kid-at-heart, this room will inspire its occupants to stay up late into the night talking and having fun. Colorful bedspreads and ceramic reading lamps add style to this merry space. A second full bathroom is located nearby, as is a washer and dryer for your group's convenience.

This two-bedroom, two-bath cottage will sleep six people quite comfortably. If you have a larger group, Pirate Cove Cottage 2, a one-bedroom, one-bath home is right next door, and ready for four additional guests. For family reunions, both spaces are ideal, with the smaller cottage providing extra privacy for grandparents or a couple with small children. For separate renters, please note that both vacation homes share the same yard, deck, and parking area.

Right outside this charming cottage, beach access is only a short five minutes north or south at either Depoe Bay's state waysides parks. Fogarty Creek State Recreation Area, about a mile north, offers plenty of opportunities for exploring, including birdwatching, tide-pooling, trails with wooden footbridges winding through Sitka spruce trees, and plenty of forest and beach views.

Downtown Depoe Bay is easily walkable from this cottage, with plenty of small shops, restaurants and art galleries to investigate. Pick up some local confections at Fuddy Duddy Fudge or browse the aisles at the Pirate's Cove Gift Shop. For more outdoor attractions, check out the Spouting Horns, a natural phenomenon caused by the ocean water being forced up through the natural lava tubes in the seawall. If there are any foodies in your group, you'll want to plan a special meal out at Restaurant Beck, just to the south of town, for a true farm-to-table experience from James Beard Award nominated chef Justin Wills.

Each December and April, Depoe Bay turns into one of the most popular destinations on the coast for Whale Watch Weeks. Visit the Whale Watch Center in town to learn more and then see if you can spot some whales from your very own deck back at the cottage or even from the dining room table! Other area special events include the Wooden Boat Show in April, the Annual Fleet of Flowers in May, and a Native American Style Salmon Bake in September. For a family day trip, visit the Oregon Coast Aquarium, just 20 minutes south in Newport to discover more about the area's rich sea life.

Pirate Cove Cottage 2 is ready and waiting for your memorable trip to the Oregon Coast. Stylish, comfortable and a bit retro, but with all the modern amenities, this getaway will be your home away from home in Depoe Bay.

Betty B. Aug 2022
Comfortable beds, great location near restaurants with a wonderful view of Pirates Cove.
Peter F. Jul 2022
The location close to public access along the waterfront, and the great view from the living room window, back porch and shared deck wete all fabulous. It would have been nice to know in advance that the deck was shared (I believe the listing now has this info) and that the cottage is right on the highway. This could make for an unpleasant stay for light sleepers, but didn’t impact us that much. Short walk to town, and excellent proximity to good coffee and some eating options. Overall - LOVED IT!
Betsy H. Apr 2022
We loved the home. The cottage was very clean. Incredible views from the patio in the back. The location was great as we were able to walk downtown.
Thomas B. Apr 2022
Since the property sits overlooking a sea cove, there are a lot of seals below the expansive wooden decking constructed above the cove - great place to watch them frolicking in the ocean and on the rocks below.
Cherie D. Mar 2022
This was a very cozy cottage. It felt like home, and had great views! Absolutely loved staying here!
Lola B. Feb 2022
I loved the view. The place was comfortable. Although we couldn't figure out how to manage the heat. It was either to hot or to cold. We had to open the doors and windows several times.
Kendra B. Nov 2021
This charming little house has everything you need for a beach trip. Very convenient for Lincoln City & Newport. The Depoe Bay waterfront is an easy walk from the house and there's a cliff walk trail a few minutes from the house. We had a great trip.
Bryan B. Oct 2021
Very clean. Great views and very relaxing. Well be back
Valerie M. Oct 2021
Loved the privacy, location and views. The cottage is older but comfortable and clean. Nothing is lacking. Loved the location and stay.
Nancy T. Oct 2021
This house has an outstanding view of the cove and ocean. It's cosy. I would recommend not having more than 4 people staying there. Easy walk to restaurants and shops. The description and pictures show a shower set up for the claw foot tub. That shower attachment has been removed. But, the other bath has a nice tiled shower.
Carl F. Sep 2021
The smell of the ocean, the misty rain, whales, sea lions, seagulls, eagles, ships, the enchanting sounds that emerse from the eerie yet comforting fog. All sitting on the back patio of this quaint yet elegant cottage overlooking pirate cove. We will certainly be back
Maureen G. Aug 2021
What a gorgeous view from nearly every one of the large windows! The wood flooring is also sweet. The beds are comfortable. The kitchen is big! On the downside, there's a gas fireplace you aren't allowed to use because they placed the TV too close to it. It sits on a raised hearth that was for the original wood fireplace, and now it's just a trip hazard. We finally had to put a sofa pillow down so we'd stop catching our toes on the raised brick. We were very disappointed not to be allowed to use the fireplace. The back bathroom has ancient fixtures that are interesting (especially the claw foot tub) but unappetizingly rusty. There are a lot of electrical outlets in that bathroom that don't appear to work, so that was an adventure. You can forgive a lot for the stupendous views, but honestly, next time, I'll just rent the smaller companion house next door. It has views that are almost as nice, but also has newer fixtures and a fireplace you can use. The deck in the back yard (shared with the smaller house next door) is excellent. We saw many kinds of birds, seals sunning on the rocks, and several passing whales. With a few upgrades, this would be a first rate place.
James D. Aug 2021
View, bird rookery, seals lounging on the rocks.
Joshua B. Jul 2021
The deck overlooking the bay was amazing and we spent most of our time out there! The cottage is very comfortable and well designed! We will definitely be back again!
Judith D. Jul 2021
The ocean is right in front of you. Beautiful views, nearby food and shopping. Cottage is a funky, fun place!
Kurleen g. Jun 2021
The view is everything! We even saw two whales spout right from the deck. Superb location within walking distance of the downtown area. The proximity to the road is a non issue. We barely noticed the sound of the traffic. The place was clean and had all we needed to cook, shower and so laundry (bath towels, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, pots and pans, plates, seasonings…). There is a safety issue with the bed in the smaller bedroom so I hope they fix that ASAP. I would stay here again for sure.
Manager response:
We appreciate you staying with us, Kurleen, and are glad you left your review. Maintenance checked the bed and did find the frame extends beyond the mattress a touch. We believe guests will be fine if they are aware of their surroundings. Thank you!
Andrea P. May 2021
The place itself is a bit worn and tired, but the view makes up for it. You can watch the waves crashing on the rocks out in the cove from the dining room table. And the view of the cove from the deck gives an array of sea birds from common gulls and Canada geese to murres and cormorants and a ton of sea lions. It makes just hanging out a delight.
NOTE: The deck and grounds ARE shared with the other cabin, but we rarely saw the other guests.
In May of 2021, we were still not keen to eat out in a restaurant, so takeout with this view was lovely. Who needs to wait in line for 30–60 minutes when one has a view like this!
Harper R. May 2021
Nothing fancy but very comfortable cottage. Loved watching the wildlife in the cove from our deck. The front of the cottage is very close to Highway 101 but the ocean waves and birds help drown out the car noise. Very comfortable beds and nice newly remodeled shower. Plan to stay here again!
Judith A. Mar 2021
This cottage was so cute! Small but perfect for us. The view out back was unbelievable. The sun was out the first day and we took so many photos! Seals and other wildlife, the waves, the sunset. Fabulous. The bed was comfortable, kitchen had just what was needed. The gas fireplace was needed as it was a bit chilly. It was perfect. We love Depoe Bay as it is such an unpretentious coastal town! Others complained about the traffic noise. This was mostly not too bad. Kind of lulls you to sleep except when an 18 wheeler comes rolling by... I would definitely stay here again. I hope to be able to rent some time in the summer!!!!
anita q. Mar 2021
View is FABULOUS from the shared deck. As with prior reviews. the fridge is pretty lame and needs replacing. The property is a bit tired (which is ok) but also has some issues. They need to fix the persistent rodent noise we heard on 3rd night, replace the broken lockbox outside, and would be great to replace the old cookware with even just a couple of new pieces. Even it means charging a bit more, it would be worth it for guests.
Manager response:
Hi, Anita! Thank you for telling us about your experience. Sonic pest chasers have been installed, and the lockbox has been repaired. We hope to see you again!
Michelle E. Feb 2021
The house was freezing. We were told too late to cancel that we couldn't use the fireplace. At least there were extra blankets. The other house is very close so no privacy. Beautiful view. Major ant problem. Decent size house for a couple. Noisy traffic very nearby.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Michelle! We inspected the fireplace and found it working, and we have set ant traps. Please do not hesitate to reach out during your visit so we can assist you in having the best vacation possible. We hope to see you again!
Beth Z. Feb 2021
It was nice to get out of town for a couple of days. The gas fireplace and wall heater kept the house warm. The view was amazing. I turned the dial in the freezer and didn’t think the fridge was warm. Plenty of warm water for shower. Close enough to walk to town and get take out (restaurants open but we aren’t ready for that yet)
Cynthia R. Jan 2021
I loved the fully stocked kitchen. The ocean view and fireplace. Loved the accessibility to the nearby towns.
Margaret S. Jan 2021
Great view of Depoe Bay during a dramatic winter storm. Would definitely stay again.
Lucas W. Jan 2021
Incredible views, good food/shopping very close.
House has all amenities you need. Located in an area that seems very safe.
Would definetly stay here again on the next visit to the coast.
Rebekah T. Nov 2020
This was the perfect cottage with the best view!! We took our elderly mother here for her birthday. We loved that she didn't have to leave the cottage to enjoy the the beautiful ocean. The cottage was well stocked with everything we needed, clean and comfortable with a rustic beach house charm. Loved the furnishings, comfortable beds and the fireplace was so nice to cozy up to after exploring the nearby trails in the wind and rain. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to stay again someday.
Kristn B. Oct 2020
This cabin was the perfect place for a quick girls trip. It was very nice, clean, gorgeous views, and great location. I will definitely stay there again!
John C. Oct 2020
The best part of this cabin is the deck overlooking Pirate Cove: If you're lucky, as we were, you'll see harbor seals basking just below, and a bald eagle on the rock just offshore. The waves crash against the reinforced walls of the cove and drown out the noise from the highway on the other side of the cabin.

The pub across the street is friendly and has good pizza; the town center is an easy ten-minute walk away in good weather, and an easy drive when it's rainy.

The cabin itself is comfortable and has the best modern shower I've ever found in an old cabin like this. One of the two bedrooms has a cute attached bathroom with a clawfoot tub, and is on the coast side. The other bedroom is smaller and is on the highway side. The highway is very audible, but not too noisy after 10:00 or 11:00.

There are puzzles, games, and binoculars, and a very usable kitchen stocked with all the basic equipment. We didn't use the TV or the stove; this was just our base for enjoying the coast, and it served that purpose well.
Nancy B. Oct 2020
Not exactly what I expected. Bedrooms backed up to Hwy 101 and all you heard at night was traffic noise and not the ocean. Refrigerator did not get things very cold. The front door did not latch or stay secure unless you used the dead bolt. The view from the deck was gorgeous, but the steps down to deck were a little steep with no handrails
Manager response:
Hi, Nancy! We have verified the fridge is working well and that the deck is up to code. The strike plate on the door has been adjusted so it can close properly. Thank you!
Lisa B. Aug 2020
The cottage itself is a little dated and seriously we had to question how they could have done a, “Comprehensive CDC guideline cleaning” when there were cob webs that looked like they had been there for years. That being said we loved it. Cottage 2 is dog friendly which was a huge plus for us. There is a trail nearby that takes you along the bluffs headed toward the center of town.
My wife, dog and I saw more whales along this trail than most of the people that were out in the boats. But the best part was on our last day there a small gray whale actually came part way into Pirates Cove the one pictured in the ad.
Candace C. Aug 2020
I loved everything about our stay here! The cottage was very cozy and super cute! It was clean, there was a washer and dryer which was such a bonus. I will be honest and say the only issue was the refrigerator didn’t get as cold as I like it but I would expect that’s something they will fix upon this review. The best thing about our stay was the view and how cute the cottage was inside.
Shaun R. Aug 2020
We loved that we could see whales and other sea animals from the backyard. We rented one cottage and my sister rented the other, so we had full run of the compound. That was nice so we had more privacy. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay!
Ivan S. Feb 2020
Great rental and with an amazing view! Nice and clean throughout. The gas fireplace was lovely too. Internet and cable didn't work during our stay, they sent out a serviceman, however we couldn't get it going. Overall good!
Suzi F. Oct 2019
The view was great, the cottage is very out dated, the rugs were curled up in kitchen almost tripped a couple times, and bathroom in back very very close quarters between tub, toilet and sink. Front door entry outside is accident prone and all steps out back have no rails! Management should experience it themselves, with a Walker. Not a senior nor handicap friendly place.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. We have passed it along to the local manager to discuss with the owner. Next time you book, please call our 24/7 Guest Services line to find a "Senior Friendly Unit." We hope we can host you again soon!
DeWayne L. Sep 2019
Loved the location of the house, right on pirates cove. The view was amazing! Good location 20 minutes either way to newport or lincoln city. We saw 2 whales and many seals. The house is an older home but was great for is nice and cozy. Would rent again!
Jason B. Sep 2019
This Cottage is one of a pair of units sharing a nice deck and small semi fenced yard with a fire pit. The views from the deck are amazing. A variety of wildlife, waves crashing against the rocks, and a front row seat to sunsets are definite pluses. However the deck was filthy with bird droppings and the yard was mostly dirt and weeds. The house is small and tidy but too close to Highway 101 in our opinion. The road noise is quite distracting when your trying to sleep or listen to the waves. We love the area but will search for another unit to rent the next time we vacation around Depoe Bay, OR.
Manager response:
Thank you for leaving us a review, Jason! The deck was recently power washed and stained, but we will get over there right away to clean up the bird mess and tidy the yard.
Liwanag C. Aug 2019
The view from the deck was amazing and very relaxing. All necessities were provided
Christian L. Jun 2019
Just what my husband and I needed to relax and enjoy all you had to offer. I'll miss the seals and their babies!
Jeffrey H. Jun 2019
Overall, it was a great little cottage with a beautiful view. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Except for a few minor things, the amenities were great as was the local community and I would visit this place again.
Erica R. May 2019
beautiful views, protects you from a decent amount of the wind because it is in the cove. Super cool rocks on a cliff that you can look out over. The cottage itself is super cozy. Loved it!
Candace C. Apr 2019
Very peaceful and relaxing we arrived to a thoughtful welcome gift a a stunning view! looking out at the ocean and seeing seals, birds and boats the private cove has a cozy charm and beautiful view of sunsets! We loved the charm of this older home and how it was so perfectly placed to enjoy everything Depot Bay had to offer. We will come back! Thank you
Angela L. Oct 2018
The view was absolutely amazing. I could have sat there for days with nothing else to do! The process was so easy as well. Adorable place
Andy C. Oct 2018
The view of the cove is great. Had several grey whales feeding at the mouth.
John C. Oct 2018
The house is simple but clean and there is the road noise to deal with but the spectacular deck in the back over the cove is awesome. We spent all of our awake time on the deck watching whales so we loved it. Plus being walking distance to all the restaurants and shops in Depoe Bay is pretty nice.
David M. Sep 2018
Old creacky cabin. But very nice. Close to town. Quiet. Full kitchen. Nice deck overlooking pirate cove. Not a B&B but not dump. Comfy bed.
Jean Y. Aug 2018
Shannon B. Aug 2018
This property is located right at the edge of Depoe Bay. Makes it very convenient to walk anywhere in town. The only drawback is the home is very noisy. 101 is right out front so the front bedroom is very bright and very loud due to the traffic and street lights. The back is very loud because there's a large Rock covered with birds that chirp incessantly. Also when the wind shifts a certain way it has an unpleasant smell. The house was cute and suited our needs
Jolinda W. Aug 2018
Great location. Cozy cottage. Amazing view!
jason s. Jul 2018
The house was dated and close to the road without blackout blinds, which allowed a lot of light in, all night.
Besides that is kind of fun to go back in time and enjoy simple living. The view was unbelievable. Whale watching while you eat at the table. Beautiful sunsets and the sound of crashing waves. We will be back.
Karen M. Jun 2018
The view
Krista L. Jun 2018
Very clean, everything functional. Very cozy and enjoyable
sara b. Apr 2018
This cottage was not as updated as cottage 1. It is old and needs a lot of work. I would suggest renting both cottages and using the other one for cooking and showering and only use this one for sleeping. The view from the deck makes it a plus in my book. I would definitely come back and rent both cottages again. Rent this both cottages you will not regret it. Just minutes to Depoe Bay.
Tasheon C. Nov 2017
Location was amazing! I dealt with a internet guy when I first got there and in the end he didn’t even fix the internet. I have unlimited data on T-Mobile and AT&T you’re fine but my friend had Verizon and zero reception at the cottage.

The location is perfect to everything. Quick walk to Depoe Bay proper and 15 minute drive to Lincoln city and New Port.
Paulo J. Sep 2017
If you want location this is it! You are in front of a cove with seals, birds, beautiful view but don't expect a luxurious house. It was ok for us. It needs better curtains!!!
Jennifer A. Sep 2017
Everything needs updated. Furniture, sinks, shower. Had musty smell in house. Had to open windows every day to air it out. Hot water faucet in bathroom didn't work. The view was beautiful and the location great. But the house was not comfortable.
Manager response:
Oceanfront homes tend to have a musty odor. We apologize if this was upsetting for our guest. The faucet is scheduled for repair. Thank you!
Douglas B. Aug 2017
I can't say how appreciative we were of what was available to us in our reservation.
Kristen T. Apr 2017
If you want simple and quaint on a private little cove....this is the perfect spot!
Lauren Y. Mar 2017
Cute little cottage with spectacular views. Great grounds to enjoy time with family and friends. The walk to the beach is a little long but a very short drive. People in Depoe Bay are friendly and courteous. It's a great place to relax even in off seasons.
Janet B. Oct 2016
Our cabin was comfy and clean, and the view to the water was outstanding. But we had no way of knowing it was directly next to the busy highway, with traffic noise starting promptly at 5am every morning.
Steve F. Sep 2016
Beautiful views, great place to stay! We will be back!
Dan W. Sep 2016
Great central location. Nice place to stay
Brian M. Sep 2016
My fiance and I recently stayed for four days/nights and had an excellent time! Beautiful view from the large deck out back--enjoyed watching sea lions sunbathing on the rocks below and whales only a few hundred yards out to sea...outstanding! Our only qualm was the cabin itself was near the road, so you could hear traffic nearby, but the sound of the ocean/waves pretty much drowned it out; the location, however, was within walking distance to local restaurants and businesses nearby, which we enjoyed. Overall, an excellent experience and would stay again! :)
Crystal B. Jul 2016
We have stayed here before and its a sentimental favorite now for our family. After 26 doctors appointments last month it was just just the get away our family needed to recharge and we hope to return every year. We saw so many whales that we stopped counting. I cooked all of our meals for our stay, the cooking equipment is rather outdated but had everything we needed. Anything they didn't have we were able to improvise. There was plenty of extra bedding and towels. Having a washer and drying at the house was lovely. The neighbors renting the cottage next door were very sweet. Being so close to another home wasn't a problem at all. The views from this home are incredible and you can see many whales from your dining table. The fireplace adds a cozy ambience. We love this place and can't wait to return.
Erin F. Jul 2016
Please see my previous comments for the review. We really enjoyed Depot Bay!
Kara E. Jul 2016
This cottage is cute and quaint with an amazing view. The housekeeping was impeccable. The cottage was comfortable but could use a bit of updating (old carpet in the bedrooms) as it has a bit of a musty smell. A good value for its cost.

Depoe Bay is a great central place to stay if you plan to road trip north and south along the coast as day trips. The nearby state parks are great. Our toddler really enjoyed Fogarty Creek State Park beach access which is just a few minutes from the cottage.
Chris S. Jul 2016
The house is simple. It is located on 101 so there is traffic noise but, being from a city, it was more ambient than disrupting. I would rent this house again for the view from the deck alone. Depoe Bay is also perfectly situated between Lincoln City and Newport, plenty of day trips available without constant crowds.
Deb F. Jun 2016
The location of this house is directly on highway 101, a bunch of road noise day and night! The back deck that overlooks the cover is amazing and almost make up for the noise!
CARLA H. May 2016
Loved it!
Ronley R. Apr 2016
This cute adorable quaint beach cottage loaded with character, charm and a fantastic view from the back porch or the dining room table is not to be missed.... Was a wonderful experience. Only complaint I have is the uncomftorable living room furniture and lack of railing on back porch steps! Other than that an "A+" for this vacation spot and cottage!
Floyd S. Apr 2016
Nice big area to park my boat The street light shines through the front bedroom but after fishing all day I didn't mind . I met the owner and he was a nice guy ! I enjoyed my stay and I will rent again when the Tuna get near !
Nick N. Mar 2016
It was a nice, tidy house. We enjoyed it. The view from the lookout deck was amazing.
Janet W. Mar 2016
Beautiful deck and view. Charming, casual, simple beach cottage. We were comfortable and happy.
Jane B. Dec 2015
Incredible view!
Charleen H. Oct 2015
Even though this house is close to the busy highway , the view and deck off the back make it a very desirable spot. The view of the cove is spectacular. The view from the back windows is also great. We watched the whales ,sea birds and other wild life everyday.
Danelle H. Jul 2015
There seem to be some mixed reviews about this property. Here is the reality. It is a cabin, not a 5-star resort. It is a fantastic cabin, right on the ocean. It has all of the fun quirks of a cabin and is a perfect retreat for a family of 4.

When you are facing the deck from the porch - there is a little seating area over to the right (in the garden) that offers the best views while seated. Great place for morning coffee.

Also recommend going out to the point to the South (through the neighborhood) and hiking the waterfront cliffs.
Alexa H. Jul 2015
Cure place with great view and location. Perfect for whale watching.
Road noise is significant.
lots to do within walking distance.
David D. May 2015
Once you are over the gravel parking lot , and enter the cottage you will know you made a great choice. Basic 1930 funky , clean and comfortable , well equipped with one of best views on the coast. You will not notice the house next door or the fact you are close to the road, quite, slept great. If you want fancy with up scale bathes and furnishings this is not the place for you. Think charm, nice trees and ocean. Will be back.
Julia E. Apr 2015
House is right off why 101 but the view out back and sound of the water makes you immediately forget it. Wildlife in your back yard; eagles, seals and whale spouts seen from the deck daily. Amazing. Wish I could have stayed longer.
Ryan R. Feb 2015
We really loved Pirated cove cottage 1 and have stayed there mutiple times. I notice that 2 had been "remodeled" recently but the 1st cottage is by far way cozier. We unfortunately could not hear the ocean even though the views where spectacular :( We will not be staying in this cottage again, but definitely will try to get pirate cove cottage 1 booked again in the future!
Jasbir V. Dec 2014
The ocean view is great. The deck is not attached to the unit and is a few steps away from the property. Plus it looks shared with the other unit. The construction seems to be done by an amateur person. Everything is functional but extremely dated.
Markus F. Sep 2014
Rustic to rudimentary that has been very well worn and not well-maintained - great location but if you're used to nice to higher-end accommodations, this will surely disappoint.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see the rustic charm did not appeal to you. We will continue to monitor the home to ensure everything is in working condition. Thank you!
John A. Sep 2014
It's the back deck that makes this place unforgettable
Kunakorn C. Jun 2014
We enjoyed watching the beautiful sunset from the deck while eating home-cooking dinner. Also, we saw seals resting on the rock and the birds flying and gathered on the rocks from the deck.
Manager response:
Thank you for this great review. We are glad that you enjoyed the great views, and the amazing experience of seeing a whale.
Michelle N. May 2014
It was the perfect vacation... exploring all the amazing things Oregon has to offer during the day and coming back to relax and spend the evening in the perfect cozy beach cottage. We will never stay in a hotel/motel again when visiting Oregon now that we've stayed at Pirates Cove 2. I recommend this little home to anyone planning to spend some time in Depoe Bay.
Tami W. Feb 2014
A very cute little house. We were there for a crafting weekend, so spent most of it at the dining room table. The dining room looks out over the back yard, Pirate Cove, and the ocean beyond. The view alone was stunning and well worth the trip.
Jennifer V. Feb 2014
This is a great spot on the coast and we enjoyed our stay very much. The website doesn't show how close this house is to the next property, though. (The place next door is about 5 feet away). Had I known this we would not have reserved it. We were lucky in that we only had neighbors one night and they didn't step outside much. Since the yard is shared, this would be ideal for two families who know each other but a little awkward for strangers, I think. The view is spectacular from the yard and from one window.

We stayed here at the beginning of January and saw so many whales just on the back deck. There were over a dozen harbor seals in Pirate Cove and they were fun to watch as well. The house is right on the 101, but this didn't make too much noise when we stayed there, or at least our daughters didn't complain about any noise. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to make breakfast (and other meals, but we ate out for lunch and dinner). The bathroom had probably the original fixtures, including that style of porcelain sink with a separate hot and cold faucet (haven't seen that since I was in London). The wood stove now has a fake fire insert with a remote control, but it does heat the room.

The house was easy to find. We very much enjoyed the view from the house and the deck. The flow of the house was unique, but not bad. We'd go back.

We had a great stay at the Pirate's Cove house. The view was excellent and the house was warm and cozy. Loved Depot Bay and Carrie's Whale Museum. Her whale tour was in a smaller ocean raft, which was exciting! We will definitely stay again!!

The cottage was exactly as shown in the website pics, including the awesome views. It's on a busier street than we expected (the main street through town), but that makes it just a very short walk down the street to the restaurants, pubs and shopping. Loved the wood-burning fire stove, especially during storms.

Comfortable and very reasonable.
