About Rick Swenson

We have been coming to Bandon since 2000 with our children and have enjoyed every second. In July 2015 we became the proud owners of the Pelican's Nest, a home we have enjoyed in the past. We look forward to sharing our home with our guest and hope they find Bandon as beautiful and relaxing as we do.

Rick Swenson purchased this house in 2015

What makes this house unique

Some of the many things we really enjoy about our home are the views from the living room where we can sit or lie on the couch, watch the water and/or read a book. I always seem to fall asleep though listening to the waves and enjoying the sun and light through the skylights. When the weather permits sitting out on the deck is delightful and there are times during the whale migrations that we sit with binoculars and watch the whales pass by. Also, the sunsets are magnificent. Our dining area, kitchen and TV room all open up through a large glass slider to our fenced, private, wind protected backyard where we enjoy nice BBQ's on our Gas grill. The beach access is just two doors down from our home and we love to take dogs and walk for miles. During minus tides the tide pools are unbelievably full of sea life. Bring your camera!! Bruce and I also enjoy the many whitewater views from our home through the many large picture windows. Doing dishes is not so bad when you can watch and enjoy the ocean. When we first enter our home we love the smell of the cedar walls and close our eyes and take deep breaths. We love the openess of our home and the ease in getting around.

Beautiful, Spacious, Well Equipped, Great Value

  • 5 of 5

Group of guys headed over for golf on Bandon Dunes courses for a few days and had a great experience as the review title summarizes. This was the nicest VRBO I've stayed in in 10 years of traveling. Nothing much to add to the other 5 star reviews in terms of detail. But know that this is an upscale experience and a true 5 star at an amazing price.

The only thing I would add is that the title picture of the property is a bit misleading. This is not ocean front - is quite a distance from the beach with a road, a row of houses between - and the beach views are quite filtered and limited and only from some of the upstairs rooms. This did not matter to us as we were not there really during daytime hours and weren't there for a relaxing time at the beach watching the surf crash.

Owner's Response: We truly appreciate the 5-star review. Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Our home is in a small neighborhood of private homes and vacation rentals like ours. We use it as a second home and love to share it with others. It is located 100 steps from the beach access trail and is one of the closest rentals to the beach in our part of the neighborhood. The road that separates the beach front homes from the ocean view homes (ours) and all other rentals is a one-lane gravel road that sees more foot/bike traffic than car traffic. It is not a high traffic road at all. Our carousel of pictures represents the views our guests experience every day. We hope you will visit us again.

great place for large group

  • 5 of 5

Even though this is a 3 bedroom place, each room has 2 beds, plus there is a comfortable hide-a-bed and a sleeper sofa, so we were able to comfortably fit 8 people, only 2 of whom slept in the same bed. There are lots of appliances and an excellent selection of pots and pans (with lids!), plates, and flatware. Great place to stay!

Our stay could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the house fabulous and the beach beautiful but the owner, Rick, is very involved and is wonderful to work with. It’s not often you find that combination.

The house is light, airy, warm, has stunning views. It is very well maintained. There wasn’t a single thing that didn’t work or that needed repair. The owner obviously loves the home and keeps a close eye on the maintenance inside and out. It was so comfortable and welcoming that it was hard to leave!

We were a party of 8 (three generations of adults) getting together for Thanksgiving holidays. The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed to cook a 20 lb turkey with all the fixings.

With 3 small dogs who love the beach we spent a fair amount of time walking. It’s possible to walk quite a distance from the house and stay on the beach. The water is about a 5 minute walk from the front door of the house. I am very grateful to have found such an amazing house where the owner will accept dogs.

For anyone who has a problem with stairs it is completely possible to stay in the downstairs area and not climb any stairs. There is a bathroom, bedroom, family room, dining room and kitchen all on the ground floor. The upstairs has two large bedrooms and two large sitting rooms filled with light and views of the water. There are TVs upstairs and down.

I can’t recommend it highly enough. If you choose to stay here you will love it!

Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious home with easy beach access. We have stayed there several times since it is pet friendly. New owner is making improvements in flooring and granite on countertops. Kitchen is well stocked. Beds are comfortable.

We had a great family reunion and birthday celebration and will return again.

This is the fourth time out group of ladies has stayed there. Enough beds and bathrooms for everyone. We've stayed at several houses in Bandon over the years and this is our favorite!

You have to crab at the local dock, especially if you have kids. You can purchase a shellfish license at the fish shops and get turkey legs at the stores (sea lions love the people who use fish for bait!) and go get dinner. The West Coast Game Park is also a must if you have children. Our kids have held bear and tiger cubs over the years. Kumari, a tiger cub they held is now a mature female there.

The Bandon Horse Stables are right around the corner from the Pelican's Nest.
