A Romantic Getaway on the Oregon Coast with Wander

The Oregon coast is more of an experience than a place. Views are breathtaking—in every direction—coastal woodlands, dunes and wildlife refuges on one side, ever-changing skies over rocky shores on the other. The sounds of the coast are just as seductive, endlessly crashing waves and seabirds turning overhead, offshore breezes tingling your nose with the fresh green smell of the sea. All can be experienced from your romantic vista at Bandon, Oregon, and much more to experience within striking distance, if you care to venture from the sleek comforts of your Wander Bandon Dunes vacation rental
