About Mike and Cathy
Mike is from Oregon and so we came to Medford 30 years ago to raise our sons. One of our favorite family outings as the boys grew up was to go to Brookings, camp at the beach and get up (very) early and go fishing. Our guys would get so seasick, but they would keep on fishing for those big salmon and red snapper! Sometimes we would camp in the Redwoods, drift down the Smith River in an inner tube, or get up early for more fishing! Some days we would take a picnic to Harris Beach and our hearty guys would surf, climb the rocks, talk to the seals and explore tide pools. In 2003 we were blessed with an opportunity to buy our awesome ocean front home which seemed too good to be true! Now our family, friends and visitors enjoy a MUCH more comfortable way to make wonderful memories!
Mike and Cathy purchased this House in 2003
Why Mike and Cathy chose Brookings
Two words: "Chetco Effect"! Our home is not only right on the ocean, it enjoys balmy summer weather with warmer temperatures unlike ANY other on the Oregon coast (called 'the Chetco effect')! It is a wonderful escape from 'valley fog' in Medford, even when it is raining in Brookings! We have a beach that is accessed only by ourselves and our neighbors because it has two large rock outcroppings where folks cannot easily access. People are friendly and there is lots to do, which unfortunately keeps us out of the lawn chair! It is a safe, low crime community with clean air and lilly fields, and there is all that wonderful FISH and crab!
What makes this House unique
Laying on the deck watching the ocean is probably our favorite, but there is rock climbing, tide pools, beach bonfires, boating, biking, wading, golf ~ and did I mention fishing and crabbing??

Ask if beds, couches and tv replaced before renting.
the house was clean and well equipped and the location is very good. the down side is that the beds leave a lot to be desired as does the living room furniture.
Beds are slept out and and overly soft and the living room couches share the same problem. given the cost of this unit both beds and and living room furniture should be comfortable. The directions on how to access the internet need to be rewritten ( the directions we received in the confirming email and those printed out and on top of the entertainment center were not the same regarding the password. The television in the living room must be going out as it either goes to a bright green screen and shuts itself off or just won't come on. Mike's responses to our calls had a sort of cavalier tone to them
and seemed more inclined to not to deal with the issues and sort of take the "well what can I do?" course of action. If my memory serves the bed issues have been spoken to in previous reviews. Nuff said.
Thank you Michael for your feedback and we appreciate your caring for our home. We had Spectrum in our home addressing the television for an entire week and they could not. Yes, the sofas are brand new from Pottery Barn and I will post pics. We enjoy the mattresses, as does the rest of our family and guests, so it may be an individual preference. We will definitely consider your feedback, thank you!
We loved our stay. The house was cozy and cute with a stunning view. The location was great to take advantage of various activities in the area.
Thanks, Mary! Please come again and remind us of our "return guest discount"! Safe travels, Mike and Cathy

So glad you chose our home Vicki and had good relaxing enjoyment on the ocean! If you revisit, remind us of your returning guest discount! Safe Travels, Mike and Cathy
We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at the Ocean View Cottage. The pictures do not do it justice - it seems much larger in person .
The view is breathtaking - you could sit and watch all day long .
We loved the location and found access to the beach very easy .
We loved it so much - I am sure we will visit again .
Thank you Colleen for choosing our sweet home on the ocean! Please DO come again and remind us of our "return guest discount"! Safe Travels, Mike and Cathy
