Book Your Beach House Stay for Whale Watching Today!

With such perfect conditions this season, nature-lovers ought to book their Lincoln City beach vacation rentals today and catch the exciting whale watching down in Depoe Bay. This quaint bay on the Central Oregon coast is known as “the whale watching capital” and is only a short drive from all of our beach vacation rentals. Lincoln City and its 7½ miles of beautiful beaches and countless amenities are perfectly positioned for whale watchers heading out for their morning expeditions. Whale-watching excursions leave from Depoe Bay every day when weather permits for roughly 10 months out of the year, and spring brings clearer and calmer days to see more whales. Keep reading to learn more about the whale-watching possibilities along Oregon’s majestic coastline this spring.

Spring Brings Whales in Mid-Migration

The beautiful Pacific Gray Whale is the most commonly spotted on the Central Oregon Coast. The whale-watching season typically runs from December to October, but there are two parts of the season. From December to May, Pacific Gray Wales in the midst of their migration are constantly passing through the Oregon Coast. Most whales spotted in the spring are on the northern end of their migration path, but there are also some heading south. By mid to late May, however, you can also catch the approximately 20 “resident whales” that return every year to Depoe Bay.

Pacific Gray Whales tend to stay around Depoe Bay for extended periods when they are in the midst of their northern migration. This is because their migration is so long – all the way from the Bering Sea between Asia and North America down to Mexico’s Baja Peninsula and Sea of Cortez before heading north again. As they head down, many of the cows (female whales) are pregnant. The cows eat very little in order to reach their destination in the warm lagoons of Baja to give birth, as their calves are not born with enough blubber to survive in cold waters. On the way back up north for summer, though, the emaciated female cows will stop and stay for a while to fill up their bellies and regain their blubber in Depoe Bay.

Stay and Play after a Whale-Watching Day

Whether you choose one of our large coastal houses or cozy beach condo rentals, Lincoln City, Oregon will put you in a perfect position to see your share of migrating or resident whales. And why not extend your stay after whale-watching day? There are countless attractions that bring visitors to Lincoln City, Depoe Bay and the surrounding areas throughout the year. The coast alone can offer days of activities from long walks and pleasant picnics to kite festivals and chili cook-offs to crabbing and clamming clinics so you can catch your own dinner and cook it up in the gourmet kitchen of your beach rental home. If culinary delights are your thing, you’ll also find a wide range of restaurants, wine bars and even fun cooking classes with acclaimed chefs that include a delicious meal at the end. The Lincoln City Cultural Center and Culinary Center are great places to start.

Just don’t wait too long to book your rental home and plan your whale-watching day, then discover all the other activities to round out your stay. Lincoln City and Depoe Bay are home to some of the most beautiful natural spaces and creatures along the Oregon Coast. Whales are just the beginning – and what a beginning they are!

Why You Should Find Yourself in Lincoln City in 2018

What better way to recharge in the New Year than to book one of our Oregon beach house rentals and unwind on the beaches of Lincoln City.

Sunset viewing is another popular pastime on clear days, or if the weather is frightful you can always light a fire and watch the waves crash on the beach from the comfort of your beach home rental.

Out-of-This-World Hiking Trails

Prepare for a Stress-Free Day on the Beach with the Whole Family

 

Every year, families of all sizes flock to the Oregon beach house rentals in Lincoln City to enjoy a few perfect days (or weeks) along this beautiful stretch of coastline. With such a gorgeous setting and wide array of beach rentals, Lincoln City, Oregon is an ideal setting for a family-friendly vacation. Whether your clan is large or small, though, you will need to do some planning before you set off from your rented beach house for a day at the beach.
Getting Ready – What to Bring for Family Fun
Whether you’re walking or driving to the beach, you will need to pack smart if you want your kids to stay happy and safe while you retain your sanity and even have a bit of fun yourself. The essentials include a mesh beach bag, water shoes, sunscreen, bug spray, lip balm, plenty of water, towels for drying off and big towels for sitting on (also consider yoga mats and foldable chairs for extra comfort), an extra bag for trash, any medications your family may need and, if you have a baby, whatever you’d normally pack in the diaper bag for a day out. If you’re bringing a picnic, also pack napkins, try to pack different foods in separate containers to avoid a sandy mess and consider a folding table for a clean place to eat. Here are a few more things you may want to pack for an extra touch of fun and cosiness:
·      a pop-up beach tent to provide shelter from the sun and sand;
·      a waterproof and/or washable toy for your little ones to cuddle while taking a nap;
·      a blow-up pool that will be your “front yard” for the kids to play in; and
·      toys such as noodles for the water, buckets and spades for building sandcastles, and whatever else will keep your kids entertained while you steal a moment to relax.
How to Keep Safe and Sane on the Beach
A day at the beach can quickly turn ugly if you’re not careful. Therefore, it’s of the utmost importance to think about safety when you’ve got a family in tow along the Central Oregon Coast. Firstly, try chilling your sunscreen to help cool down hot bodies and reapply about every 30 minutes to avoid cancer-causing rays. Pack some loose clothes and baby wipes as well, so you can help cool down any potential victims of sunburn as the day goes by. To avoid unnecessary hassle, think about things like going to the bathroom, keeping everyone well-fed and hydrated throughout the day, how the adults are going to carry everything to the beach, and how you’re going to get everyone off the beach when the day is winding down. And, finally, be wary of the waves and try to choose a spot where you can see a lifeguard.
You’re much more likely to have a full, happy and satisfied day along the Oregon Coast if you plan a few activities that everyone will enjoy. Exploring the local tide pools is a great idea, as you can teach your kids about respecting wildlife and show them magical creatures such as mollusks, snails and starfish that share the sea. Most importantly, let your kids be themselves as long as they aren’t putting themselves or anyone else in danger. A day on the beach should be fun for all!

With the right beach vacation rentals, Oregonand its majestic coastline is the perfect setting for a family vacation. And with the right planning you can create wonderful memories for years to come.

How to Pack for Your Upcoming Summer Vacation in Lincoln City

Lincoln City boasts some of the best beach vacation rentals Oregon has to offer, with miles of pristine coastline within walking distance and an array of local treasures to explore during a short stay or a longer getaway. If you’re planning a trip to this beautiful seaside town along the Central Oregon Coast, you can consider yourself lucky! You may also be thinking about all the work that lies ahead in preparing for your vacation, but remember that this is supposed to be a time to relax and have fun. So, follow these simple steps and your packing should be done in no time, so you can sit back and relax as your trip gets underway. 

1.     Pack according to how long you’re staying. Think about how many shirts and other essential articles of clothing you would normally wear in that period of time, then pack one extra. Most Oregon beach house rentals have laundry facilities on-site, but who wants to spend their vacation doing laundry? Keep it simple but avoid packing every possible thing that you might want to wear.

2.     Bring something you’ll feel confident wearing on the beach. Whether you’re wearing board shorts, a one-piece swimsuit or two-piece bikini, you should feel comfortable and confident when you’re enjoying some fun in the sun, sand and waves. Make sure you have some go-to beachwear as well as a casual pair of shorts. Some jeans or sturdy trousers and a light jacket are also a good idea, so you can enjoy walks on the beach later in the evening when it gets cooler.

3.     Picture yourself out on the sand. Getting all the way to your vacation home and walking to the ocean with your beach bag, only to realize you’ve forgotten something essential at home, can put a real damper on a sunny seaside day. So, before you take off, imagine that you are at the beach with everyone who will be joining you during your time away. What will you need to have with you? Sunscreen is an obvious one, but also think of whether you’ll want oversized beach towels, water canteens, buckets and spades, windbreakers, beach umbrellas or any other gear you normally use.

4.     Pack some first-aid essentials. This is especially important if you are traveling with children. If an accident happens, you’ll be glad you packed those bandages, antibiotic ointments, medicated creams and sunburn-relieving Aloe Vera products.

5.     Prepare for the amenities on-hand. Luckily, there are kitchens or kitchenettes in all of A-1’s beach rentals. Lincoln City, Oregon offers a wide range of options for groceries and other conveniences, so you won’t need to pack much in the way of food since you can purchase it all once you arrive. You may want to bring some specialty items to feel more at home, though, and you will definitely want to leave room in your budget for dining out at some of the delectable local restaurants. 

6.     Keep your paperwork in a safe place. The final step you will want to take before heading off for a stress-free summer break on the Central Oregon Coast is getting all your paperwork in order. If you have printouts of online bookings, rental car paperwork, important medical forms or other critical documents, keep them in a clear plastic bag in a safe place where you will remember it.

Now that you’ve finished packing with these six fool-proof steps, you’re ready to enjoy a wonderful time in Lincoln City! With the arrangements out of the way you will only need to “worry” about having fun
