Just returned from another visit to Turtlejane's, and each time I am reminded of how much I love it. The room I always take (with the private porch) has such a splendid view, and you can hear the surf so well from the natural accoustics (the way the mountain wraps itself around the water). Breakfasts and daily treats are delectable - worth raving about. I like the joint (shared) kitchen area - with full-size refrigerator and micro if needed, though I always eat at Roseanne's Cafe, a short walk away, with their 5-star dinners (and 3-star prices). Jane and Don are terrific hosts - warm, funny, engaging and delightful. It is a wonderful place to rejuvenate. Hosts really do go out of their way to surprise and delight. (e.g., the apple crisp and a bowl of whipped cream! OMG it was good.)
Stunning view from our room....cozy and super clean,,,,,great breakfast, super hosts. But wait there's more! Oceanside is a quiet town off the main drag. You can walk to town and on to the beach without the traffic of most coastal towns. We loved it and we enjoyed talking to our hosts. It is a no brainer if you are looking for a romantic get-away for two on the North coast of Oregon.
Let's start with the drawbacks: 1) They are not going to make your room up. So, if you are going to stay for more than 1 night, you are going to make your bed and keep the bathroom clean 2) There is not a common living room area, which it means that, a part from breakfast time, you are going to spend your entire stay in your bedroom.
Tortola - A little bit squeezed and its parking spot is a little tricky even for a smaller car, but the view from the bedroom is probably the best.
Tortuga - Roomier, parking spot easy to access, has a deck with a great view, but no shower.
And now the 5 star part, which will make you forget the drawbacks: the breakfast is delicious and abundant, one of the best we ever experienced. You will be talking about it for a while.
Turtle Jane's is the ultimate in luxurious lodging & scrumptios breakfasts. From the claw foot tub to the windows opening to the view of Three Arch Rocks it is just perfect. Don & Jane are the perfect hosts and meeting other guests is fun too.
Fresh flowers and a sweet treat greet you on arrival. Tillamook Ice Cream is always available in the snack room area. And Don makes the most wonderful coffee in the mornings. The breakfasts that Jane prepares are multi layered delights. You won't be hungry again until supper time! There is an extensive Library of books to tempt you if you forgot to bring your own. This is a special place in Oceanside!
We stayed here one night. The room was very nice with a great view of the beach area. Our hosts were very cordial and made us feel very welcome.The only draw-back is the parking. Because of this our host made room for us in their garage.We recommend this "our-of-the-way" B&B as a delightful location for a retreat.
