Affordable luxury just steps from the beach! This charming dog-friendly, 3 story 1100 sf cedar-shingle cottage-style guest addition has no shared walls with the owner's residence and comes with a large ATTACHED GARAGE for parking as well as an ADDITIONAL 1600 sf of amenity-rich indoor/outdoor space reserved for your EXCLUSIVE use during your stay, including an attached courtyard/hot-tub area; a lovely sun-room; patio with Char-Grill & fire-pit; lawn area.

HAPPY TAILS BEACH COTTAGE IS PERFECT FOR: People vacationing with dogs who appreciate close proximity to the beach, beautiful surroundings, abundant amenities, 'luxe', modern furnishings and tasteful nautical decor, and a peaceful, tranquil, retreat-like environment. While there is no fenced yard, we do provide very large dog crates for when you are enjoying outdoor amenities that allow you to keep an eye on your dog(s), and up to two well-behaved dogs are allowed. There is only one bathroom in Happy Tails and it is in the Master Bedroom. This means that if you would like to bring your children along with your dogs, you will need to share your Master bath with them. The 3rd floor bedroom / gameroom has twin beds (via a trundle bed) and ocean views and was designed with children in mind (although adults love it too!)
MORE ABOUT HAPPY TAILS BEACH COTTAGE: This charming 1100 sf 3 story cedar-shingle cottage-style guesthouse sits nestled on one third of an acre and just 300 feet from spectacular Heceta Beach. This amenity-filled, recently renovated nautical-themed cottage surrounded by lush, flowering gardens has all you need to create a happy and memorable vacation by the sea. The cottage is separated from the owner's living quarters by a breezeway (owner lives on this large property for better service) and guests have EXCLUSIVE use of the cottage and the entire North side of the property (over 1600 sf ADDITIONAL useable space) and all listed amenities, including a garage attached to the cottage to use for parking and as a mudroom; a covered courtyard with hot tub; an enchanting sun-room, and private patio with Char-Grill and fire-pit.
This charming, retro-style nautical-themed cottage is rich in amenities and loaded with thoughtful touches to ensure guests get the most out of their stay. The 2nd floor dining / living room has peek-a-boo ocean views; an outdoor deck; a wood-burning pot-bellied stove and a dining table that seats 6. There's a TV in the living room that has Roku (Internet Streaming) TV as well as DirecTV Now for live-streaming your favorite shows, channels, and movies. There's also a DVD player and some DVDs.
The guest garage is attached to the cottage's 1st floor kitchenette. The kitchenette has a Cuisinart Toaster / Convection oven with 13" Pizza Stone; a microwave; an Electric Skillet; and an Electric Pot for steaming, sauteing, making soups, etc, but there is no stove. There are many more kitchen appliances (including blender w/ ice crusher). The fridge is a two door mini-fridge (with freezer).
The 3rd floor loft is a bedroom / game room that can sleep up to two in twin beds and offers wonderful elevated ocean views. The twin beds can be converted into one single day bed if only one guest is sleeping there and a more spacious room is preferred.
You are welcome to harvest things in season from our garden (if you can beat the wild bunnies and birds to it!) You are also welcome to utilize the various spaces around the entire property (1/3rd acre total) that invite relaxation and contemplation. The kitchenette is fully functional and has everything you need to cook except for a stove. Two grills are also provided exclusively for your use (Fire-pit grill and a Char-Grill).
Interaction with guests
My Style As A Host: I'll do all I can to be there for you if and when you need me. The rest of the time I will do all I can to remain at a distance and protect your privacy. I do have two well behaved medium / large sized dogs that are kept separate from guests. *Guests may also request to have an 'Equine Experience' with me and my horses that are at a nearby stable. You will learn about horse behavior, horse communication, grooming, and how to work with horses on the ground for a better partnership when riding. I can also get you a discount with the local stables if you want to go on a guided ride on the beach or on the Oregon Coast Horse Trail.

Anyone sleeping in the 2nd floor living room or 3rd floor bedroom will need to use this bathroom.
