About Marilyn Oberbeck

I grew up in southern California and attended Loyola Marymount University, majoring in mathematics and philosophy. As a kid I was also interested in electronics and ham radio. This made me a prime candidate for employment as a telecommunications expert by the Department of Defense, which wanted to hire me before graduation.

After obtaining my undergraduate degree I did work for DOD for five years, from 1966 to 1970, gaining lots of hands on experience with telecomm and electronics navigation systems. Then I rotated into the private sector, careering out with Exxon Mobil's ocean tanker division. I picked up graduate degrees in mathematics and electrical engineering along the way, and have also taught mathematics and electrical engineering in various universities.

My retirement career as a real estate developer has heated up and prevents me from enjoying Pacific Vistas Retreat to the extent I had hoped.

Marilyn Oberbeck purchased this estate in 2012

Why Marilyn Oberbeck chose Coastal Oregon

I traveled the Oregon coast for 48 years before purchasing Pacific Vistas Retreat in 2012.

The 12 acres of privacy on a high oceanic bluff, stunning ocean views, and the potential for a private trail to a secluded beach and other walking trails on the property, were irresistible incentives.

What makes this estate unique

The home has a low gray rectangular exterior profile, with odd interior angles. It took me two weeks of living there before I stopped getting lost inside the house. It is wonderful to sit in the living room on a stormy winter day, staring out to sea. The winds can blow in off the ocean at 100 mph, yet the sound of the interior central heating system overwhelms the sounds of the storm.

Fabulous View!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay and except for VRBO's new fees and added costs, the price was right. Five of Eight children from the baby boomer generation shared this home for a week. This was a glorious 1970's architecture designed stunner with four master en-suites ideally separated for maximum privacy. Out door spaces and Views are AMAZING. Total Privacy. Beds comfortable. Not in town, but very close to a nice little golf course. Not updated or well decorated, but house was clean.

Nice large house with great ocean views

  • 4 of 5

Overall house worked well for our purposes. Very large bedrooms with great views. Good for large groups of adults. House is somewhat out dated, and TVs were hard to figure out. Bedroom TVs didn't work. Still recommend it for people looking for big house in this area.

An Experience!

  • 5 of 5

What a house, what a view!!! With the view looking south, the home sheltered the wind from the north. You could see about 8 miles down the beach. Plenty of room for the family. We will be staying there again. Thanks, Ron Rufener

Beautiful property! Pictures don't lie!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful home and we enjoyed our stay immensely! VERY clean and spacious- we had 5 kids and 4 adults in our group and we didn't feel cramped at all. In fact, this house is awesome for hide and seek for the kiddos... :) For those of you with young children, know that there are some stairs w/o banisters, and the railing posts on the decks are too far apart to prevent a small child from slipping through, so we didn't allow the kids out there w/o an adult. Beds were comfortable as well.

Another wonderful holiday at our favorite rental

  • 4 of 5

Four guys traveled to Gold Beach on a golf trip and stayed at our favorite rental home. The best part is Marilyn, the property manager. She, again, treated us like kings and took care of a few issues that popped up. This home needs renovation and apparently the owner has this scheduled for the future. Four guys, four bedrooms, and four bathrooms was perfect. The view of the ocean from the patio is breathtaking. We'll be back next year or sooner.
