About Sara Klobas

We are Ryan and Sara Klobas. We have two boys, Preston (12) and Vance (9). Both of us are native Oregonians and grew up walking the sands and playing in the great waters of the Oregon Coast. Our parents moved here in the 60's and settled in to have a family. We now reside in NE Portland and LOVE Oregon!!

Sara Klobas purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Sara Klobas chose Coastal Oregon

We found this little pink cottage through our sister in law, who lives in Cape Meares full time. We put the word out that we were looking, and after about a year, this little gem popped up as a potential purchase. We spoke to the owner several times and soon shook hands and made a deal. Since then, we have made this place our home away from home.

What makes this cottage unique

There is so much to love about Cape Meares. The 4 miles of uncrowded beach, the drive up the bay, the birds singing as you walk past the lake on the way to the beach, the friendly neighbors, the bright beautiful stars on a clear nite, riding bikes on the spit and beyond, the tidepools if you're there when the tide is LOW, the deck, the wood stove, the great meals on the BBQ, walking forever on the beach or picking blackberries late in Summer. It's just a great place to get away from the craziness of being home.


Car: necessary

The Peptide is located in Cape Meares. Cape Meares is one of the 3 capes on the Scenic Route on the Oregon coast and sits on the south end of the Tillamook Bay. There are 4 miles of uncrowded beach to enjoy as you stroll, play or relax on on the shore. Fishing, biking, kayaking, canoeing, birdwatching and hiking are just some of the great activities to do while visiting CM and if you would like to venture into town (aprox. 7 miles), you may like to get some ice cream at the Tillamook Cheese Factory, pick up some fresh Netarts Bay oysters at JAndy's Oyster Co. (call first and ask what's available 503-812-0253), check out the vintage planes at the Air Museum, sample some cheese and wine at the Blue Heron Cheese Factory and take a train ride on a Steam Engine from Garibaldi to Rockaway and back.

There are many species of birds who make Cape Meares and the Bay their home. Blue Herons are a common site, as well as Bald Eagles, Osprey and smaller birds such as Red Winged Black Birds. There have been sightings of deer, elk, porcupine, beaver, bear and more.

Cape Meares is a wooded area. There are no stores, restaurants or gas stations. It is a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. So if you are looking for a small town feel, come here and experience Cape Meares at the Peptide!

Quiet place to enjoy the beach.

  • 5 of 5

House was extremely cozy, clean, and incredibly close to the beach. We were able to walk from the house to the water in about 5 minutes. The owners were prompt at getting back to me, and I definitely recommend staying here if you have the opportunity.

Portland, OR

The Cape Meares area is very special for it quiet. Period. I look for that.

  • 4 of 5

Wee little place, very grateful most of land around was natural. No mown lawn, no just so stuff. House was clean, just enough charm to be able to relax.

Three things that merit attention tho:

Coffee maker didn't work

Mattress in west bedroom needs replacing.

Cadet heater isn't near enough heat. I was afraid to use the scary extra heater. Wood stove works great but didn't want to use it in the morning when we were leaving. Very cold.

All in all wound come to Peptide again

Thanks for sharing it.

Owner's Response: Sounds like you had a good time at our Beachhouse. Not sure what could've happened with the coffee maker as it's brand new. I ordered one off of Amazon that had 4 1/2 stars and it's only been at the house for possibly 2 weeks. Regarding the mattress, we've been thinking probably needs to be replaced soon. That will be addressed. Unsure why the heaters are not working properly. I will have to send someone out to take a look.

Rustic beach cottage

  • 2 of 5

The cottage was fine for the cost, but the host had some unrealistic expectations. For example, you are expected to take all your trash and recycling with you when you leave. Not practical when you fly in from out of town. The suggestion to leave it at the Safeway or Fred Myer is not only impractical, but illegal. We were also charged for a "late checkout" because supposedly the house keeper couldn't get in. We were in the driveway and no one even came to ask/talk to us.

As for the house, it is rustic. Beds could be more comfortable. Bathroom is circa 1950s. There are some games and puzzles but no beach toys, no beach towels, etc.

Owner's Response: Our house is a cottage it's not a palace. We inform guests ahead of time that we have no garbage / recycling service and it needs to be taken with them upon their departure. I am not sure why they rented our place if they could not fulfill that requirement. They could've rented somewhere else at a higher rate which has garbage service if they needed to do so. As for the late departure, we only charge $50 which is way lower than most rentals anywhere on the coast! It I s based on a two hour clean. If a guest leaves late and the housekeeper is ready, she automatically charges us so I need to reflect that and what I chat ge the guest. Of course if they would have asked for a late departure, I might have arranged that with the housekeeper and it would've been fine unless it was a turnaround day which mean we would've had guests coming in the same day at 4 PM. If you look at our ratings we usually have a five star rating. People love our cottage and come back many times. Actually I just got a wonderful message from a guest today who has stayed at our cottage eight years in row and feels like it's home to their family and according to him will be for many years to come The beds are very comfortable and we are always updating our home.

Great little beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Great little place, perfect for my family of 4. Our kids loved the yard and the swings. It was just a short walk to the beach. Quiet beach community. We loved it and will rent again!
