A relaxing retreat awaits you at this Lincoln City 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom, 1-loft vacation rental beach cabin located in the quaint and upscale Olivia Beach development. Inspired by tiny house living, this lovely By-the-Day Dreamer cabin and comfortably sleeps 4-6 cozily! Whether you’re seeking a relaxing retreat or an adventurous tour of the Oregon coast, this lovely place will quickly become your favorite beach getaway! This newly built cabin is equipped with everything you need to feel right at home, while enjoying the peace and tranquility only nature can provide with coastal landscaping and common fire pit, and additional community amenities. The high lofted ceiling and tranquil colors give you the impression of plenty of space in an otherwise small cabin. 

Comfortable furnishings and a gas fireplace add to the cozy feel. In the fully equipped kitchen, prepare delicious meals and sit down together at the lovely dining nook, which expands for larger parties. Enjoy the entertainment system, with a smart TV, featuring Netflix (no cable). Wi-Fi is provided to stay in the loop with the latest news and entertainment. As part of the lovely Olivia Beach Camp Cabins, By-the-Day Dreamer also features a private jacuzzi for your enjoyment, two cruiser bicycles, and our 'camp' cabin includes a front yard fire pit for roasting s'mores. There's also a BBQ stand for grilling and making for a memorable beach experience! In the mornings, sip your steamy mug of joe from the cabin’s adjoining deck or front porch while listening to the tranquil sounds of waves crashing in the distance. In the evenings, gather with your loved ones in front of the glowing fire pit while roasting marshmallows and sharing laughs and stories of the day's adventures. Plus, the stars are amazing at the beach cabins on clear nights! Additionally, you’ll have access to the community's 24/7 fitness center year round and an outdoor non-chlorinated heated pool (open Memorial Day through the end of September). 

The By-the-Day Dreamer has an optional add-on in-law suite situated right behind the main cabin, next to the jacuzzi. This is only available with the main cabin rental. Encompassing 500 square feet of tastefully decorated living space, the suite features a studio with a king-sized bed, a living area with a sleeper couch, a 1-2-person dining table, a kitchenette with the basics of a small refrigerator, coffeemaker, microwave, and minimal eating utensils. There is also a full size bathroom with a two-person sauna and shower for your convenience. Lofts include a queen bed, and two sleeping mats for playing games. The cottage is designed to enjoy common recreation areas, like an outdoor heated seasonal swimming pool, deck overlooking the Pacific, and a big central park with a playground and sand volleyball. Beach access is nearby via three routes, and shops and restaurants are located within easy walking distance. 

Perched at the top of the Olivia Beach community, you’ll have the best of Oregon’s coast right at your doorstep! With three beach access points just minutes from the cabin, you can walk or drive to the stunning oceanfront and begin your next nautical excursion. The tide pools are the best on the central coast, and agates are popular finds on Olivia Beach. Within Lincoln City you’ll discover a wide array of attractions, including Devil’s Lake State Park where you can spend summer days kayaking with local guides, or in the winter months, you can search the beach for glass floats! Families and friends also gather in the area for kite contests and sand castle building. Shop until you drop at the area’s outlet mall, or explore local shops within walking distance of the cabins. 

For a day trip, visit Newport, offering the hip Nye Beach shopping district, Rogue Brewery and the Oregon Coast Aquarium, just 25 miles away. Next to Nye Beach there’s even a playground with a giant hillside pirate ship slide, a sure treat for the kids! Outdoor enthusiasts will especially love hiking Drift Creek Falls with it’s gorgeous suspension bridge, or exploring the amazing beauty of Cascade Head. No matter your reason for visiting Oregon’s coast, the Olivia Beach Camp Cabins will quickly become your vacation destination for years to come! The Olivia Beach community is truly one of a kind on the Oregon Coast. With this brand new construction, the quality of the home and amenities is truly top notch. They were designed to meet your every need, so you can simply sit back, relax, and enjoy.

Guest access

Key code access will be provided automatically when you book, with electronic and time sensitive codes for your convenience. The adjoining deck between the cabins and the communal fire pit are shared. The garage has been turned into a retreat/play space for use by guests at the Day Dreamer cabin (Wind Sailor guests still have access to grab bikes and beach stuff).

Guest interaction

We live in Portland and Astoria, so unless we're staying in the second cabin, we probably won't meet you. We love reading stories in the guest book, and are happy to get your feedback. If we do bump into you, we are happy to connect or give you your space. You can visit our Olivia Beach Camp Cabin and other websites to learn more about us and our story.

Neighborhood overview

The Olivia Beach community is like the the "Cape Cod" of the Pacific NW. Even though the homes are newly built, the neighborhood has a quaint old-fashioned feel. With the park, pool, volleyball court, and exercise room there's enough to keep you busy without even going to the beach. The beach access is easy with three different routes (two routes by car are just minutes, walking is about 10-15).

Getting around

There isn't much transit, but there is plenty to do/eat in walking distance and grocery stores are nearby in both directions. There are lots of touristy beach shops and the outlet mall is very close. Lastly, there are two cruiser bicycles per cabin (although honestly we haven't even used them yet with everything else there is to do nearby).

Other things to note

There are only two cabins of this size/price in the Olivia Beach community (all other place are bigger and much more expensive). Rates include state and local taxes. The cabins are cozy, but they have everything you need for a getaway. We are very kid-friendly, and have baby gear like high chairs, pack-n-play, and dishes. Ask us if you have more questions.

Amazing Place

This cozy cottage with the in law suite was just what we needed. We were three couples with a 2 year old boy and a 10 year old dog. The beach was awesome too. Highly recommend it!

So cute and relaxing!

We spent a few days here with my mom. It was perfect!! We found the cabin to be the perfect size for 4 of us - 3 adults and a 13 year old. The cabin is so cute and was furnished with everything we needed. The hot tub was the perfect ending to our days! Would definitely stay here again!

Amazing experience

My girlfriends and I went here for my bachelorette party, because of work and busy schedules we were only able to stay one night :( but it was great!! So many things to keep you entertained whether you're stuck inside or are able to explore things outside. Lots of games to keep you busy, jacuzzi, a fire pit that we were able to make s'mores and hotdogs on, etc. Also, I loved the fact that there is a manual inside the cabin that lets you know the places around there to eat or to explore and what activities are available nearby! Not only that, but there is also a guest book that's each guest signs and leaves a note with tips or with their impressions. We found those very helpful when deciding on where to eat :) The walk to the ocean is only about 5 minutes and the view is incredible. The cabin itself is very cozy and cute and things such as utensils and toiletries are provided for you! Miel was an amazing host and responded to any question or concern in a timely manner, I will definitely be coming back here someday!

A great , clean, beautiful and cozy little place! My daughters and I enjoyed it with our two little dogs! Our only complaints are that Netflix kept freezing up on us and a low water level in the hot tub. I recommend it!!!

Beachy keen!

We loved this sweet little cottage in this quiet community set away from the highway and wished we’d had more time than just an overnight to enjoy it (we pulled in after dark and then had to be all cleaned up and checked out by 11am the next day). It was very clean, bright and cheery (and appeared to be relatively new). We appreciated and enjoyed the helpful and interesting info book about the owners’ story, rules of the cottage, suggestions and recommendations on where to get/go for certain things/activities. In our short stay we were able to squeeze in the making of a meal (well-supplied kitchen, except couldn’t find a coffee grinder the next morning), a soak in the hot tub, a movie on Netflix (very nice entertainment system in cottage) and a bike ride with the beach bikes provided in the garage (thanks!) down to the local cafe for breakfast the next morning (fab breakfast by some of the friendliest, helpful and knowledgeable locals in the area)! After we checked out we drove down Coast Drive (Street?) from this beautiful cottage community right to the public access beach and walked the beach (it was low tide) for an hour or so. Fun little stones and rocks scattered everywhere — so fun to hunt for some keepers. We lucked out with the weather, which made having to move on even harder. Just beautiful. Loved Lincoln City — has all the amenities of a larger town in a smallish town setting. My only caution about these cottages are that if you have any mobility issues or not a lot of strength or flexibility, this place may not be for you. Not quite a tiny house, but it’s on the tight size. The master bedroom is small with a queen bed, but one side is pushed up against a wall, so someone will have to climb over the other for nighttime bathroom visits. And there isn’t a lot of extra room for luggage or storage of luggage. The loft won’t make much sense for you either. My take was that this place is the most ideal for a young family. Still, we really enjoyed it. Thank you!
