Couples of all ages and from all over the world have chosen to retreat to the Romance of the Sea. With it's own private deck and hot tub, this small cottage studio offers privacy and views impossible to attain in a hotel or condo. The Romance sits towards the top of the hill just a block from the ocean, making lounging on the deck and watching the view a perfect past time. Enjoying your morning coffee or evening cocktail in the relaxing and soothing waters of the spa for two (shielded from view with it's privacy screen) is a perfect way to begin or end the day. Guests stroll hand-in-hand on the beach, watching the shore-birds, spying whales, looking for agates. Just north of us are tide pools to visit at low tide. A bit further on is the hidden Secret Beach, a truly lovely and incredible place accessible only by climbing the rocks at low tide.
Come back to the cottage to share a meal - cooked on the gas grill on the deck or inside in the kitchenette. Inside you will find all the amenities of home: the leather couch and recliner for snuggling by the gas fireplace, the 40" flat screen HDMI TV with 'smart' DVD player - although I think most folks don't take time to watch TV; wireless internet - if you MUST work just a tiny bit; a kitchenette with two burner cook-top, microwave and dining area. The house is fully stocked with everything you will need in order to create your masterpiece, including spices in the cupboard and condiments on the door of the refrigerator. You won't need to buy ice for your drinks as the fridge has an automatic ice maker. Enjoy your meal outside on the deck or inside at the little table.
Take in a show or do a little gambling at the casino just a mile and a half away. You don't have to drive if you don't want to. If you walk along the beach at low tide, you can take a taxi back late at night. Local taxis anywhere within the Lincoln City area are only $8.
For cozying up and maybe sleeping, luxuriate in the incredibly comfortable plush pillow-top king bed. We have been pleased to get almost as many comments about this bed as we have had about the neighborhood deer! More than one couple have written to us after their stay to ask specific questions about the bed. And did we mention the deer? We think the deer have a romance sensor - they visit almost every couple at least once. We love reading the delightful guest comments in the log which almost always include the deer!
The Romance of the Sea is for honeymoons, engagements, anniversaries, birthdays and every reason to enhance your relationship. Bring your love to the Coast. Share the Romance together!
Please note: The Romance is a cottage suite, and does not have a separate bedroom.Read more

Romantic Couples Only! Ocean view house w/hot tub Lincoln City, Oregon
Additional Location Information
The Roads End beach is a fine place for a romantic stroll with tidepools, islands, and the headland with its hidden cove. Sailboarders come from everywhere! When Lincoln City's beaches are crowded or windy, this sheltered spot just north of town is surprisingly quiet. A short path descends to the beach at the pebbly mouth of a lazy little creek. The north beach is topped by a jumble of quaint old cottages until the beach narrows to the massive Cascade Head. Fragments of lava form ragged islands where comic, long-necked cormorants dry their black wings atop guano-stained roosts. At low tide it's possible to clamber around the headland's tip to a secret cove and beach. Don't linger too long or you'll have to wait hours until the next low tide to get out!

My girlfriend had a last-minute urge to head to the beach for her birthday - so I hopped online and was lucky enough to find this cute little cottage.
Debi replied to me quickly and with all the information I needed to make a same-day reservation. The recommendations on what to do and where to eat were so useful, and the place itself was exactly as advertised.
It was awesome to head out to the hot tub in the provided robes, and the bed was like sleeping in a cloud. Blackfish Cafe (the host's recommendation) was the perfect place for a celebratory dinner. We didn't cook, but would have had no problem preparing our meals in the kitchen with what was supplied.
We would definitely head back here for another perfect weekend!

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and loved it! The service was great as well as the location! We were one block up from the beach and loved the view. The hot tub was easy to use and perfect for a December honeymoon. Read more
Jessica, thanks for choosing the Romance of the Sea for something so special as your honeymoon. We are so glad that the cottage worked well for you. It's a great place for an anniversary, too! We would love to hear from you again. Debi

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Romance by the sea. We celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary. This was our first time at the cozy cottage and we very much appreciated the ambiance and the hot tub! Wonderful views and very private. I would definitely recommend this place and am looking forward to staying at other places that Deb and Rob have too. Read more
Teresa, Rob and I are delighted that you and your husband had a nice anniversary, and that you enjoyed your stay at the Romance. Our #1 goal is that our guests are happy, and honestly, we really want you to walk in, say "Wow!" and find our homes better than you anticipated. We would love to welcome you in any of our places and look forward to hearing from you again!

Beautiful view and sounds!

This little place is beautiful! Great location just off hwy 101. We enjoyed several places, antique stores and scenic drives. The weather was a bit on the chilly side while we were here, but thanks to a redbox we spent the later night just enjoying movies.
We saw deer both morning and evening here. Nice to sit on the deck and watch the Ocean roll in!
We had a meal at Tidal Raves per Debi's suggestion, i had a smoked salmon soup with my meal that was about one of the best soups ive ever tried! The Safeway store near by was handy and reasonable, not to mention the chicken dinner meal we had was pretty darn good. The only thing that was a bit of a challenge for us was the parking. Being flat landers, the steep incline was something we were not use to but we managed.
Thanks again for letting us stay at your sweet little place,
Shannon, thanks for the review, and thank you for choosing the Romance of the Sea for your beach retreat. It sounds like you found the shopping and the stores conveniently located, and I agree about the driveway. It is steep, and we are grateful we have very little snow! However, the hill is what gives the Romance our view of the ocean, so we are grateful for that as well. Glad you made it back home safe and sound, and that your drive was uneventful. Take care, Debi.
Cozy cottage with a great view!!

My Girlfriend and I went here for our first romantic weekend getaway and we were very impressed. I have stayed at another house on the Oregon Coast owned by Debi and Rob and I was equally impressed with this property. It has all the comforts of home and is extremely clean. The patio with hot tub and great view was amazing. The king sized pillow top mattress was nice as well.
Cozy beach getaway for two

My partner and I stayed here for two nights in december and had a lovely time. We were greeted by deer in the backyard as we pulled up to the place, the studio set up was prefect for two, and the clear and beautiful view of the ocean can be seen from the bed. It was cozy, private, warm, and cute. We recommend this place for any couple looking for a romantic getaway at the beach.
Great Getaway Spot

Romance by the Sea was a perfect spot for my husband and me. It was in a quiet spot but well within walking distance down to the beach. The cottage studio had all the necessities and then some! The owners were great to work with and shared many e-mails with us on things to do in Oregon since it was our first trip. I want to come back soon!!

Debi and Rob's cottage rental is a steal with all of the amenities of home plus more. My husband and I have never before run across such a great vacation rental deal and they will always have us as two loyal customers. The location is great and the hot tub and private balcony give it that extra something that will keep us coming back. We look forward to spending many more vacations at the cottage and are thankful that Debi and Rob have listed their rental at such a reasonable and competitive price.

This is not our first time staying at this quiet little cottage. We were hooked after our first visit and try to come back every year. Cozy, great view, sort walk to the beach and comfy bed are just some of the features you will enjoy if you take advantage of this great value. If you are look for a place to hide away, romance and off the beaten path this is it. Short distance to stores and local restaurants. Kitchen is well stocked and great if you just want to stay in and enjoy each other. Hot tub on deck is private just the right size and feels great morning, noon or night. You won't be disapointed it this great choice. Owners are wonderful to work with, honest and great hosts.
