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.

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.

This place is huge with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a group of 4 families. There was plenty of space to mingle, cook, play games, wander or sit and enjoy the sound of the ocean. The place has a retro vibe so if you are looking for the most up to date kitchen and technology (there is cable tv in both masters) this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a great place to enjoy the scenes of nature and spending quality time with family and friends this place is wonderful. Everyone enjoyed their time spent at the house and at the beach. We went to town a few times and really like the charm and friendly people. Perfect mountain/beach destination!

This property worked well for our family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

The master with the attached children's room worked well for us. We loved the deck off of the kitchen. It was a favorite place for meals and for just relaxing and enjoying the water below

Spacious, comfortable, beautiful

  • 5 of 5

6 adults and 8 children were accommodated well in this awesome house. The 4 bedrooms with bathrooms attached made life very easy for all of us. The private balcony up stairs was great for morning coffee before the kids woke up. The first floor porch is where we spent most of our time. This area had stunning views and perfect temperature at all times. We all lived this vacation house.
