Shelley K. from Fernley, Nevada recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2016 The house and its location are wonderful. Loved the back yard and the small beach out back. Very kid friendly and fun for everyone. Watched the sea lions from the patio and sat around the fire pit every night. The house had everything we needed for a great vacation!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thank you for your review. The fire pit and new picnic bench with the enclosed deck make it comfortable for families. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay!
A guest from Gresham, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2016 there was ping pong table but no balls. Lots of board games, dominos game, magazine but no deck of cards. Good location, good view to the bay area. House was clean, bedrooms can use new mattress. It's kind of old and springy. Overall it was good. Would considering to comeback.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Sorry about the balls. We have a lot of them at the office so next time please come by or call us. I try to say on these reviews the one huge positive about renting from us is that we are on call 24/7 and our office is physically located at the entrance to Bayshore Estates, locally situated to most of our homes. Please don't hesitate to come by or call us if you need anything during your stay.
Melissa E. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2016 We love this house with the view of the bay. Always very comfy! We love the staff at Bayshore too. They always treat us good.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thanks so much for the positive review. We hope you will return again soon.
A guest from Ridgefield, Washington recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2016 I liked that it had a great view of the bay from every window in the back of the house. House had a nice cozy feeling. Would like to stay here again in the future.
Melissa E. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2015 We haven't stayed in this house for awhile and when we walked in I remembered how much I loved it. Beautiful view of the bay and the house is very comfortable.
A guest from Dallas, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2015 This is our 2nd stay at Shell Haven. We spent Thanksgiving with our kids at this wonderful location and we all enjoyed it immensely. The view is breath taking and the crabbing is always fun and successful! We enjoyed lots of evening fires. The home is spacious and well stocked with everything you need! The new tv is great - was nice for the Civil War! The house was spotlessly clean and the staff at Bayshore is always friendly and a pleasure to work with. We are already looking forward to booking our next stay!!
Wonderful Location with seal watching right out the back door!
A guest from Tijers, New Mexico recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2015 Excellent location and the bay wildlife is amazing! For a few days, we had a couple of very playful seals right out the back of the house, lots of fun to watch them play. On a number of days, we saw a couple of blue herons and more than a dozen white egrets, along with all the sea gulls.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC We are so happy you had a great time at Shellhaven, thanks for the positive comments. Hope you see you again soon.
Ann and Jim C. from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 We love this house. I thought the beds were fine. I agree that the couch and chair are a little jaded, but come on, it's a rental! House is stocked - only things missing - plastic containers and zip lock bags, so bring your own. Office staff, specifically Lori, are outstanding and helpful. We had one problem and she resolved it as quickly as possible (septic tank overflow alarm went off). Wonderful view of the bay and bridge. Lots of warm quilts and bedspreads. Linens were fine.
Tom R. from Grand Haven, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in August, 2015 This lovely 2 bed/2 bath more than met our expectations. From the street it looks nice but once you step inside the view is impressive. The rooms large and comfortable with a great kitchen. Alsea Bay and bridge were stunning. We crabbed and clammed from our beach, collected agates, watched the seals and birds, walked to the ocean and were ready to move to Waldport. This community is laid back and less touristy than Newport and Yachats but accessible to all the wonderful sites this Oregon coastal area has to offer. We loved having a place to call home, cook and relax. We travel often and like to rent homes for longer stays and this was one of the best. There were just the two of us but is suitable for two couples or a small family. We kayaked with the harbor seals, rode horses on the beach, ate at Lazy Days Café, whale watched, hiked, photographed everything and rented crabbing gear at the Crab Shack (they cook your crab). It was hard to leave but will be back next year.
Karin C. from Eugene, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 We always have a fabulous time. We have been renting from Bayshore every year for over 20 years. We have never had a problem and all the houses have been spotless and comfortable.
Kay F. from Philomath, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 Was a delightful 3 days with my grand children. The house was perfect and the location was fantastic. Love my time there.
Judy and Don P. from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 We have been renting this place for several years. Great location and a fun place to go clamming. Enjoyed the ping-pong table. Just wish there was a king size bed but other than that it is perfect.
A guest from Redding, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2014 Flat top electric stove needs flat bottom pans. Skillets were warped, nearly unusable. Paid $45 cleaning fee but had to unload dishwasher on arrival. Also had to start a load of towels before leaving and run dishwasher and take out our own trash. Nice location but beds were so so. Windows very foggy & dirty, ruined the nice view.
A guest from LEBANAON, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2014 We love the location of this rental property because we enjoy watching the boats and people in the bay. The bridge is gorgeous and we love to go crabbing and salmon fishing. The vacation rental management staff are wonderful and very helpful. The staff are always professional and and emit the feeling that their goal is to make your vacation the best it can be.The rooms at Shell Haven are very spacious and the bathrooms are always very clean, kudos to the housekeeper. The couch and recliner are old and dirty so I cover them up with a sheets. We have stayed at Shell Haven approximately 4-5 years and always look forward to coming back because of the location. The mattress's and bedding are very, very old and uncomfortable so I bring all our own bedding, but because of the condition of the mattress's we keep saying next time we will look for a different property to rent but then Shell Haven's location can't be beat.I an neutral on recommending or not recommending this property to a friend.
Nathaniel R. from Highlands Ranch, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2014 I'm very pleased with the total experience, the location of the house and the amenities around were very enjoyable. The only bad thing was that I would have liked to spend more time seeing the site's. Over all I had an amazing time, and would suggest you and the location to anyone looking for a memorable vacation.
David M. from Vancover, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014 We enjoyed this home with the pretty view of the Alsea Bay. Two couples stayed at this house and it was very comfortable home. Glad that the beds were comfortable and we had enough space to enjoy this pretty area. We love to crab, so we'll be back to enjoy that bay again and rent this house next year!
Amy D. from Tucson, Arizona recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 Very nice place to stay and use as a place to travel up and down the coast. Staff was very friendly upon check in and out. Loved watching the heron in the morning!
A guest from Eugene, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 We have been using this company for over 15 years! We have found them to be the best in Lincoln County. The house we rent every year is well maintained, clean and has the best bay view!
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 My family had an excellent time in this well stocked vacation home. We had a total of 6 people, including one infant, who were able to comfortably fit into this home. Our teenagers were very happy with the beach access which was just steps out the backdoor and I was comfortable with the slow moving water that they were completely safe and easily supervised. The view was amazing! The fire pit was used each night with enthusiasm. There is nothing negative that I can say about this home. We will return and be very comfortable once again when we do! This home was: well stocked with everything you will need, had rooms much larger than the pictures depict, very centrally located to the beach and downtown (including a grocery store), was very quiet, and was well maintained by the staff.
A guest from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 We have been renting here for many years. Always a great experience with a wonderful view of the bay and easy access to clamming and within driving distance of wonderful coastal towns. Would love to have the windows clear of moisture but other than that, it is great.
Wali T. from Woodburn, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in November, 2013 We may not be able to afford you next year due to the price increase. The Buy 2 get 1 night deal isn't a deal at all.
Terri A. from Corvallis, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 Actually we had a wonderful time in Waldport and Shell Haven. The only thing that wasn't great was the beds. The mattress in the master was so hard we did not sleep at all. Next we tried the guest room, and though a little softer still not a good sleep. Other than that, the house was clean and things were in working order. We would like to find another rental with a great view and better beds. Thanks so much to property managers for there great help and service.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC The owner did replace one of the beds, will have to mention replacing the other one. Our apoligies if it wasn't comfortable.
A guest from LEBANON, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2013 We always enjoy our stay at Shellhaven because of the beautiful location. The bay is always full of activity during the day and quiet and serene in the evening. I have made suggests in my past reviews and I have read past reviews where other vacationers suggest things like; need of games, need of window screens (only 2 in the whole house), uncomfortable dated mattresses & bedding, and the glass seal broken on the patio door; and the review requests were answered with these items provided, replaced and fixed, and the problems still exist. The master mattress was not replaced but an inexpensive egg-crate foam was placed on top and the guests room mattress was replace with a filthy dirty, (stains and hair and dirt) mattress. In over 3-4 years the patio door glass has not been replaced.The layout of this house is ideal for privacy for 2 couples, with bedrooms on opposite ends and has a wonderful deck, with wind block, to enjoy the bay.Bayshore Rental employees are very professional and make the rental process very smooth. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and a pleasure to do business with.
Wolfgang M. from Salem, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2013 The house and view exceeded my expectations and the Bayshore Rental team were professional, friendly, personable and helpful. It was a very positive experience.
A guest from Sherwood, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2013 It was a great place with a beautiful view. It does need screens to keep flies out. I know this is being taken care of so I would recommend this rental!
A guest from Pleasant Hill, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 Great house. Liked the layout, very clean,right on the water. Beautiful view of the bay and bridge. Just a block walk to the oceanside beach. Management is always super (we are longtime renters at Bayshore.) Only problem was the beds. Very uncomfortable. Management said they would talk with the owner about replacing them.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC The beds have been reaplaced by the owner, we've had similar suggestions. Thank you, hope you will return.
A guest from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 We have been renting this home for several years We love its location and the beautiful view of the bay and bridge. The two large bedrooms and bathrooms enable us to have friends and family visit during our weeklong stays We fake advantage of clamming during low tides and long walks on the beach. We have wonderful memories saved up over the years .
Chelyn J. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 I brought my mom and grandmother to Shellhaven for a post Mother's Day get-away. We had a great time enjoying the view of the bay and the comfortable, well maintained accommodations.
Marilyn E. from Lebanon, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 We have enjoyed the Shell Haven several times over the years and always have an amazing time. Very beautiful bay location and close to the ocean.
Wali T. from Woodburn, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2012 We especially enjoyed the view from the patio. There was too much fog in the mornings to get a good view of the sunrise, but that will not stop us from reserving the house again next year. We had a great time. Thank you
Becky B. from Sutherlin, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2012 My husband and I rented this home for our anniversary get-away. It was wonderfully located within feet from the bay and is just accross the bridge from Waldport. The home was clean, well laid out, big bedrooms, a great pellet stove and a stocked kitchen. We enjoyed our stay and will definately come back again. If I had to find one thing bad to say it would be that the master bed was a little hard for our taste...otherwise it is the perfect get-away home. Thank you!
JULIE W. from LEBANAON, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2012 We have rented Shellhaven a few times now. The location view is beautiful looking across the bay. The house is always clean and ready for us. I have two concerns with the rental, first - the advertising states there is a pellet stove , which it has, but there have never been any pellets supplies on any of our stays. I feel if Shellhaven is advertised as having a pellet stove, then the pellets should be provided. Second - the mattresses are horrible, they are ancient and hard as a rock with very dated, old bedding. We have to bring our own bedding and mattress toppers, which we should not have to bring to be comfortable. Again, the home is nice and comfortable.... the view is outstanding.... the location perfect... but with the lack of pellets, dated bedding and poor mattresses, I don't know if we will rent Shellhaven again.
Sarah K. from Spokane Valley, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2012 We planned our trip very last miniute but this rental company and this house worked out perfectly for us! We had a blast! The price was just right for us also. The beds were a little hard and the floors were out of date but for the price it was great, clean, and cozy. The pellet stove was the best, there is a great porch along the back of thr house and a fire pit. The beach part wasnt a sandy beach it was very rocky! But beautiful none the less! The tvs are tiny and old but thats not what we went to the coast for. There is crabbing right out ur door! We did rent a boat and had a blast. We found out the last day the house has some crabbing rings on the side of the house.... We did pay to rent some.. Overall tons to do around here and this house and location was great, we loved it and will be back for sure!
Fred H. from Prineville, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 We were very impressed with this rental! Location was great and the house was very nice! Definitely going to come back ASAP!!!!
A guest from Spokane Valley, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in August, 2012 We have stayed at your properties several times over the years. First time on the bayside. We liked it! Great little home. Had minor problem with smell (racoons?) first night but none after that. Deck chairs (Adirondacks) had broken slats, but were replaced by staff.Overall I would rate A-. We will will be back to stay with you again.
Don P. from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 As always, my family and I had a very enjoyable and relaxing time in our Bayshore Rental home in Waldport. We have rented this home for several years and always look forward to our Oregon Coast vacation. The crabbing and clamming in the Alsea Bay area is almost too much fun!
Karen G. from Keizer, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012 I loved the location of this house, right on the bay and just a short walk to the ocean beaches. The house was clean and bright. Had a great time.
Laura C. from Prineville, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2012 This is our 2nd stay at Shell Haven and our 4 registration with BayShore rentals. We coming back--they treat us so well, we love the homes and the view of the bay is spectacular. Clamming right off the steps, watching the sea lions, the antics of the just doesn't get much better. The home is clean and just feels like 'home'. We love the garage, we leave our sandy shoes and clothes right there! We will be back!
A guest from Bend, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2012 This was an a great house for the weekend, sitting on the deck, it is clean and has everything you need. very nice. Will stay here many more times.
A guest from Lebanon, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2012 We enjoyed every minute of our stay, the only problem was that we had to leave! We're looking forward to the next time.
A guest from Monmouth, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2011 We stayed in this house for almost a week & were very pleased. The house was larger than we anticipated & the layout was excellent for two families. Access to the bay was a big plus. The men of the family even fished off the edge of the water. We hated to leave!
A guest from Lebanon, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2011 Location was great... House layout was very good. The beds were awful... very old... very hard... One patio door window panel was replaced but just on the one panel.. the other panel the seal is broken, but wasn't replaced. Very quiet and relaxing. Carpet needs cleaning in master bedroom/bathroom doorways.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thanks for the suggestions and critique. We will look into the beds and the cleaning of carpets. Carpets have now been cleaned.
A guest from Bend, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2011 We enjoyed the bay view from Shellhaven. It was very peaceful and fun to have a fire in the firepit at night. Kitchen utensils are a minimum both worked for our short stay. I would recommend this house to anyone.
Don W. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2011 We really liked everything except the hardness of the large master bed. Next time we'd request an air mattress for the master bed.Thanks for the NICE BATHROOMS & KITCHEN & the crab-cleaning table. The L/R-D/R was enjoyable;esp. the DVD player. We worked to take care of such a nice place & would like to come back. THANKS AGAIN !!
A guest from Paradise, Michigan recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in September, 2011 Very relaxing, great location on the bay with a wonderful view. We enjoyed our stay at Shellhaven and would stay again.
DALE E. from DUNLAP, ILLINOIS recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in August, 2011 We love staying on the bay. There is not a lot to do at Waldport but you can travel 15-50 miles either way on the coast and find many activities. Shellhaven is a nice two bedroom house but the living room furniture needs replaced as it is not comfortable.
Coralee P. from Newport, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 We rented four homes and were so pleased to see how clean and fresh they all were. We brought extra's of everything but the homes were supplied quite nicely. We had such a great time. Thank you so much for your service
Jamie M. from Sacramento, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in July, 2011 Okay, so I booked Amanda's cottage for 7/24-7/27. Buuuuuttttt, I arrived on the Saturday I was expecting to come in on--which was 7/23. So when I get here, after the office was closed, and couldn't find my key, I called the number on the door. A very friendly gentleman was appoligetic and rushed down. When he got there, he said they didn't have me coming in until the next day. When I checked my reservation (and a calendar to see what the date was) they were so right and I was SOOO wrong. But they found Shell Haven for me, my husband and 3 boys to stay in for the night until my house would be ready. Shell Haven was a very nice house, great set up and well stocked. Of course the boys had to look all around and check out every closet and cupboard even though we were just sleeping there for the night. Bed was good and it has a stair case to the beach. I would take either house when I come back, because we will be coming back!
A guest from Stanford, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 The house was very clean and we find all the dishes that we needed to make our was quiet and pleasent and walking distance to the ocean, while the bay is just outside the door.The screens on the doors/windows some of them need to be replaced and the appliances are very old (the dryer takes forever), there is rust in the doors.Overall we had a good time there.
Don P. from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2011 It is a wonderful place to clam and go crabbing. We enjoy the view of the bridge and being able to walk down onto the sand. I would like to have the sliding glass door clean without moisture trapped between layers of glass. That is really the only criticism I have.
Karin C. from Eugene, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2011 This is the best house yet!We have rented from Bayshore for over 15 years and have found them to be the best on the Oregon coast! Thank you ladies for always taking good care of us!
Anne C. from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011 Shell Haven is located on Alsea Bay and has great views across the bay to the bridge. It is a short walk from the ocean-side beach. We can't think of any way in which the house could be better maintained or equipped. The furnishings are modern and very nice indeed.Overall, Shell Haven is about the best home we have ever rented and our only regret is that we only had a few days to spend. We definitely intend to come back when we have more time.
Jean L. from McMinnville, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2011 Shell Haven is on the bay and I loved the sound of the water. And it was beautiful when the lights of the big town of Waldport came on at night. So pretty. We'll come back.
Krystle A. from Pasco, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2011 My husband and I had a great time in Waldport. We always use Bayshore rentals and have never been disappointed. Shell Haven was a great house. It has a beautiful view of the Bay and Bridge and the water is just steps from the back door. We can't wait to return!
Reviewed by: Delmar P. recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in January, 2011 A perfect winter stay...protected from the ocean side with a lovely view of the bay and bridge. Weather was unbelievably good for late January...many days in the mid 60's without rain! We would definitely ask for this house again.
Charles N. from Leaburg, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2010 Thanks for a great place to enjoy a winter break. Great views of the bay and sea lions playing. Lots of room for a couple or two. Kitchen was well equipped. Plenty of linens. Loved it and plan another trip.
A guest from Creswell, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2010 Spending Christmas watching the crab boats and seals in the bay was wonderful. Amazing view and awesome house. Will definitely go back and recommend to friends...
Laura C. from Prineville, oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2010 Such a beautiful view of the bay and a lovely home. Well stocked kitchen cupboards, neat and tidy. Slight ceiling damage and the garage door stuck a bit but the rest of the home was fabulous. Management staff is excellent!! We will be back!!!
Gerard B. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2010 The home was fine and staff was helpful - the cieling in the living room has water damage that has been in need of repair for a couple of years - i have stayed there several times and think this should be fixed, the knives are all dull and there should be a shell craker for crabs since this is the oregon coast. also you are competing with motels on the coast - they all supply plenty of toilet paper - i think 2 rolls per bathroom is expected and would appreciate if paper products and aluminum foil were included as it is inconvient to arrive and then have to go get these itemsotherwise we had a great time and will be back again
Lloyd E. from Brookings, SD recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2010 This is the second time we have stayed at Shellhaven and returned because we enjoyed the location of the view of the bay. Also it is extremely clean and convenient. We have stayed at 3 other homes and found all of them to always meet our needs and extremely clean. The staff is always helpful.Thanks again!
A guest from Brownsville, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2010 Televisions could use updating. Master shower door having issues popping out of tracks. Nice view of the bay. Great place!
Sylvia B. from Phoenix, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2010 The only problem we had with the house was the sliding door to the deck. I guess it was broken and you could not open it easily or quickly. Other than that the house is awesome.
Richard C. from Wilsonville, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2010 We arrived on friday evening to the house we rented to find out later the water heater was broken. The property managers moved us to a different house which was even better than the house we originaly rented. The house was great the only problem was the back sliding door was broken so we had a very hard time going in and out to the deck to enjoy the great weather. That is my only complaint everything else was awesome!
