Adventures with Grandpa: Bella Beach, Oregon

When we went to the Oregon Coast with Grandpa in 2015 we stayed in the cutest vacation rental community with its own beach. It is called Bella Beach and it is near Depoe Bay, Oregon. Our rental was the Parkview rental. It is a 3 bed, 3 bath cozy condo located above a fantastic neighborhood French bakery shop and close to the community park. We had so much fun playing board games at the table, putting our feet in the sand at the beach, and hearing the kids make up a story called “Elvis the Explorer” (their strange version of Dora the Explorer) at the park. Don’t ask. It has something to do with Elvis, Thomas Edison, The More Sensitive Guy–Whose a Killer, The Map, Thomas Tutu, a bucket, and boy humor.

The Condo

The community had such cute Craftman style houses. With the tall pine trees and the salty sea breeze, it was a pleasant place to take a walk in the morning or after dinner. I especially enjoyed the patch of lawn with a few of the homes across from it. They reminded me of the Painted Ladies in San Francisco.

The Community

The kids had a great time playing at the play ground and putting their feet in the sand at the beach.

The best part of our visit to Bella Beach was the sunsets. They were glorious!
