Stretch by the Sea is the quintessential vacation rental, perfect for a family vacation or romantic get-a-way. Mere steps from Netarts Bay, our comfortable and cozy home features water views from each of its three levels, natural light streaming into every room, tasteful colors and furnishings, and all the comforts of home with none of the distractions. Netarts is a peaceful community south of Oceanside and west of Tillamook, Oregon, and Netarts Bay is simply a beautiful place to visit.
We're eager to share this wonderful place with you. A nice sandy beach is just a 3-4 minute walk down the street, as is the Netarts boat launch and the Schooner, a local restaurant and pub (try the fabulous fish & chips!) The bay itself is fantastic for exploring, clamming and crabbing. The big ocean surf is less that a 5 minute drive (or 10-15 minute walk along the beach) towards Oceanside.
The main (middle ) floor of our house features an open kitchen/living area and a bathroom. Our cozy living room has a wood burning fireplace, a cozy reading nook and a wall of view windows. You can watch the Netarts Bay scene as you cook in our well stocked kitchen. The living area opens onto a balcony where you can enjoy the view and smell the ocean air.
There are two bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor. The master bedroom has a great water view, vaulted ceiling, a comfortable queen bed and serene color scheme. The second bedroom also features a vaulted ceiling, a quality queen bed, fun colors and plenty of natural light. The second floor hall is home to a portion of our eclectic library of books and a reading bench for lazy inside days.
The bottom floor is a den/bunk room. This is where you'll find the cable TV and DVD player along with our other electronics. For sleeping, we have a unique bunk bed built into the wall. The bunk area has 2 levels with a queen & double mattress on each - the bunk area alone can sleep 8 people.
Our cottage is family-friendly. We have games, toys, a small stroller and a pack-n-play crib, a hi-chair, stair gate, etc. There is also a twin mattress stashed upstairs to accommodate youngsters who like to sleep in their parents room. The enclosed fire-pit outside in our yard is great for hot dog and marshmallow roasts.
Even though our home is family friendly, it is also a great place for a romantic get-a-way. Beach-combing on pleasant days or curling up by the fire during a coastal storm keep us coming back! Bring your favorite tunes to play on our Ipod dock.
We have made every effort to create a cozy and inviting space and we look forward to sharing it with you.

'Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home at Netarts. We had a wonderful time, weather cooperated and the crabbing was great! We hope to be able to return in the future and enjoy another vacation. Your home is so comfortable and well furnished. The bed mattresses are wonderful and the kitchen is well equipped. It is one of the nicest vacation rentals we have ever rented.' Dee & Jim
'I really enjoyed staying there. I felt at home, which is rare when staying in someone else’s house. There are a ton of games, which we played quite a few of. The amenities you offer are like no other rental I have experienced. I loved how open the house is and all the sleeping area’s available. The view is gorgeous and we were literally a block from the beach. This has been one of the nicest rentals I have yet to stay in. We’ll be recommending your home to our friends and family. Suggestions: Keep doing what you are doing - I would not change anything.' Jessica...Read more

We enjoyed a great 4 day stay at Stretch by the sea. We are from Michigan, and our Son (a Chef) and his family live in Portland. We were coaxed by our son to look in the Netarts area, away from the more crowded areas.
Netarts is quiet yet easily accesable to stores and restaurants in Tillamook and neighborhood spots. The home is very comfortable and quiet, with great views of the bay. We crabbed, fished and dug clams, not to mention the fabulous turkey dinner our son prepared in the modern,
comfortable kitchen. Nice fireplace made evenings enjoyable.
The home is very nicely laid out with 2 bedrooms on the top level and
lots of sleeping area on the lowest level, super for small children and a second family. The home looks small but works nicely for a big crew.
We hope to visit again.

We love this vacation rental- such a beautiful home fully stocked with everything you need to have a wonderful and relaxing vacation on the Oregon coast. We've been about 5 times over the years and are making a trip again this December. Each time we stay, we find something new to do ...from crabbing in the bay, late night cockle clamming to running the dogs at Oceanside beach and hiking in the forests, the area has a lot to offer. Or if all you came to do is nothing, this is a great place to do that too. So quiet and peaceful. The owners are excellent- great communicators, prompt to your needs, and have an eye for detail. Stay at Stretch- you'll be so happy you did!
“Beautiful, immaculate beach house and fantastic view”

This beach house is clean, comfortable and spacious. The view from the living room and deck is amazing. You can see out to the bay with hills behind them. When we were there we saw bald eagles at the beach which is a quick walk away. The kitchen is fully-equipped. Great place for a couple families to share or large group of friends, or one family to spread out.

We had a fabulous 3 day stay at this well equipped and cared for beach house.
It was very clean with lots of wonderful amenities. The view of Netarts Bay is delightful and the wonderful long sandy beach is just a stroll away.
The Schooner Restaurant, a block away, has good food and great margaritas. It's a good place to stop after a long sunny day on the beach. We will be back with more of the family!!

This beautiful house is not on the "tourist track"! It is, in every respect, a getaway place. Lots of room for being together or being separate, close to the beach, beautiful view, cozy and clean. It was a delight to share this house with friends. Easy to cook in. The fireplace was a plus. I will go back again for a "stretch".

Wow---what a lovely home in a great location for a perfect family getaway. We loved the view of the ocean and how the sun just poured in the wall of windows in the living area. The owners have taken great care to make sure guests have a comfortable stay...from toys for children to games for adults and two large living spaces. The kids adored the double bunk beds as well as the short walk to the beach and the local store for ice cream. The kitchen is stocked and organized---everything we needed for a getaway in a "home away from home" destination. Thank you!

We've stayed at this house on multiple occassions and will continue to rent it. The bunk area downstairs is great for kids, while the adults can relax upstairs. It's beautifully decorated yet still comfortable and cozy. The kitchen is well stocked and its kid friendly.
We're so glad you enjoy our place - that's our goal!

Stretch made for a great vacation getaway with friends! Everything that we needed to cook great meals together was provided. The beach is close by and provides miles of expanse for beach combing or kayaking. The Schooner Restaurant just down the hill, has good food and a fabulous protected deck. We will be back!!!
