Suzanne H. from Winchester, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2016 We had a terrific time at this home. It is very well equipped and extremely comfortable for a large group. There were 11 of us.
Thomas C. from Moscow, ID recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 This is a terrific house. We have four grown children with families. Two of the nights we were all there together then some left early. This is located right across the street from a great sandy beach, has a full size pool table, lots of games, and movies. We will come here again and I recommend it for big groups. Plenty of sleeping options as well.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thanks for the positive review. We hope you will return again soon.
Anita N. from Sweet Home, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2015 Great house for our large family of 5 children, their spouses, and grandkids. Well supplied roomy kitchen for team meal preparation and counter serving. Nearly all of us could sit around the table. New Year's weekend football on TV, puzzles on the table, grandkids with their toys on the floor -- we could all enjoy being together in the same place and not miss anything. In January it was chilly and windy, but it was gloriously sunny so we made a few trips to down to beach which is accessible just a couple of houses over. When indoors we enjoyed the great view of the ocean and the brilliant sunsets. This is a great house if your group just wants to be together and thus the name "Gathering Place" is very appropriate. We will definitely go there again.
Kristine S. from Powell Butte, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2015 Perfect for a large family who loves to do games - the pool table really got a work out. Fantastic view and close to beach access!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Gathering Place is a lovely home and the reviews are always stellar. Hope to see you again soon.
A guest from Albany, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2015 Beautiful home with a great view. Lots of space for relaxing and enjoying your stay. Home is well stocked with everything you need. I would highly recommend this house. One down fall is that the refrigerator needs to be replaced.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thanks for the review. We will speak to the owner about the refrigerator. They are very proactive at maintaining the house and wonderful to work with. We hope you will return again soon.
Jay F. from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2015 15 STARS!5 Start property, 10 STAR MANAGEMENT!This is our third year in a row staying at the Gathering Place. The five of us friends go on a crabbing trip and this is our preferred place to stay. Most people probably go to the coast to get away from civilization; that is not us. This group of men like watching sports, playing cards and shooting pool. If getting away from technology is what you are after, this review may not be for you, but the HOUSE will suit you perfectly!The Good:- Plenty of room for 5 adult men. We draw cards to pick rooms! 3 rooms have queens, 1 room has 1 twin (and the heat ducting ? low card) and 1 room has two twins. Large dining room table with plenty of seating.- The wifi internet allows us to hook up my iPad to the upstairs TV (THANK YOU for finally upgrading ONE of the TV's) allowing us to get almost any sporting event at the house. In years past, we had to go in to the bar to catch the games.- House is WELL stocked with activities: movies (older vhs), cards, dominoes, board games, pool table, ping pong & shuffle board.- Laundry facility and two full bathroomsNot so good:- Downstairs TV is old school, so can?t hook up the new tech. Would have enjoyed watching the games while shooting pool. Bring your own media cables.- New TV connected to cable box via coax and the picture is horrible. Bring a composite cable and hook it up that way, picture 100% better. Better yet, owner should contact the cable company and see about an updated cable box (usually included in the price).
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC The TV has been fixed, it works fine now. Thanks for your patience.
Will R. from Vida, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2015 4 Couples, 2 Nights and a Wonderful experience! This place is really like stepping into a home, not a rental! Filled with furnishings and decor well beyond what was expected. Games, VCR media, Classic Records, 2 large gathering rooms, and I go On, and On! Kitchen and bedrooms were top notch. Decks were crisp & clean. Fireplace worked beautifully. Plenty of off-street parking. The only draw-back (and not for us) is that the kitchen and major living area is upstairs; might be a problem for those challenged with stairs. We'll be Back!
Julie B. from Pleasant Hill, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2015 Our last minute get away to Waldport turned out to be one of the best multi-family experiences we've had. The house was perfectly situated for crabbing, beach walks and exploring the coast. We especially enjoyed huge tables for group meals and being able to relax as a group in the large upstairs living room with beautiful views and decks. Definitely keeping this house in our future plans!
A guest from American Fork, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 We were so very impressed with the quality of this house, all the supplies, the beds, the view! It was absolutely perfect for our large family reunion!
Heidi C. from Citrus Heights, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 Our family visited the Gathering Place to celebrate my son's hs graduation. There were 11 of us and there was plenty of room. The house was clean and comfortably worn, nicely stocked and had lots of room and activities (games, pool/ping pong tables, etc) which was perfect especially for the 4 teens. The house itself was good, close to the beach with a decent view, but there were a couple of drawbacks. There is a short distance of the beach that is mucky so a longer walkway would be beneficial, though the beach itself is beautiful! The cable channel selection is VERY basic and was even worse for the first 2 days since it took 3 visits from the cable company & over 4 hours of our vacation time waiting for the repairmen as they tried to resolve the issue, which included replacement of equipment twice. Bayshore sent out someone finally on the first visit after 2 hours. They scribbled a note that they would send someone to wait with the repairman when they came back if we wanted, but they left all the coordination up to us - they should have been proactive in dealing with the issue. Once resolved cable selection was WEAK so bring movies! Info for the password was incorrect to the WiFi and after 2 calls to Bayshore it was finally resolved, plus found out they already knew about the issue that they blamed on the owner. When we checked out I told office staff that the hot water heater was leaking and the dead bolt on the screen door stuck so no beachfront porch access. They could not have cared less, rather I felt I was intruding on their conversation. Though we liked the comfort of the house and our family time there, I was fully disappointed in the response time and home management of Bayshore. They should have been proactive in dealing with these issues rather than leaving it up to us, eating into our valuable family time. It is VERY doubtful that I would ever rent a property through Bayshore again - I think they are lousy representatives for the home owners.
As the Grandkids call it - "The Big Blue Beach House"
A guest from Fort Collins, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2015 The Gathering Place is by far the most comfortable, well appointed vacation home we've ever stayed at. Every convenience of home, and then some! Great for family and friends ... accommodating common areas and so nice to ALL be able to gather around the dining table which seats about 12!! Perfect for our recent family gathering of 10. Thank you!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC So happy you enjoyed your stay, that's for coming!
Ed L. from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2015 This is our 2nd year renting this house, both times wee during Football season, the only problem with this house is, they need to upgrade there TVS, and get better cable. we crabbed all day and wanted to watch sports at night!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC It's so difficult to please everyone. To keep the price affordable in most of these homes it's a tough call whether to increase wifi speed, add more channels to the TV, or to raise prices and hope guests won't complain about a nightly rate increase. All of our owners try to hard to keep things affordable yet also keep amenities up to date.
Maddalena B. from Torrance, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2014 Had a wonderful time at Gathering Place. Great house, gorgeous view. Bay shore Rental is a great company to rent from.!
Elliott D. from Glen Ellyn, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2014 From 63 to 1, this home is a great retreat. Did the whole thanksgiving meal - more tools in kitchen then I have, great layout to serve big crowd. Never felt crowded at all with upstairs and down family rooms. Pool table, shuffle board, bbq grill, fireplace, movies, games - we enjoyed them all. Good beds..showers..bath. Very clean. Great porch protected from wind - we even got to watch the sun set on the water.The pictures on the web are accurate - upstairs kit/fam room actually more roomy than I assumed. Beach access very easy and so fun- they even had some extra rain gear. Don't miss the walks on the beach even if rain/wind, awesome! Bay shore people very nice and interested to have us enjoy their area. No negatives to report. Make sure you stop by "Devils churn" cape perpetua just south of yachats and enjoy the 101 drive views during daylight. Hope to be back someday.
A guest from Beaverton, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 Our stay in August 2014 at the Gathering Place was our 2nd stay. We like this house for many reasons, some of which are the space, well stocked kitchen and supplies in general. It is very well maintained, and the ocean view is perfect. I have a very minor recommendation for this house, a new can opener would be great. We will absolutely rent this house again.
Kelsey G. from Eustis, NE recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014 This is a very special place! Tons of space, great for our family group of 9, tons of space, tons to do. House was very clean, and had everything and more one would need for a fun, relaxing vacation for all ages.
A guest from Blue River, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2014 What an amazing place. We were a little concerned that the view would be lacking but from the upstairs living space the view was wonderful. Beach access was only a very short walk down the drive. This is a great place for families, the game room with pool table was a big hit. Rain or sun everyone would have a super time staying at this place.
Peter and Sandy J. from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014 This lovely, spacious home is full of light. It has an open living room/dining room/ kitchen floor plan that allows multiple conversational groups or a family slide show. The beach access is right outside the door--we loved it!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC The Gathering Place is a wonderful home, we are happy you had good time and hope you will return soon.
Jackie Y. from Springfield, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014 Three daughters, granddaughter, and myself enjoyed a 3 night stay. House was beautiful and weather was perfect. Hoping we will be able to come back again
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Wow, what a fun time you must have had, thanks so much for coming!
Ed L. from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2013 Not enough cable choices during football season, had to leave the house to watch the games we wanted to see. upgrade cable and add $5.00 per night a must.
Leslie P. from Salem, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2013 Gathering Place met all our needs and more! We had plenty of space to accomplish our tasks for a working weekend for our Little League Board! Great layout, wonderful views. We'll be back! Thanks to the office staff for lining up our two rentals (Gathering Place and Beach Time) meeting our needs so well!
nancy b. from Corvallis, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2013 This is a spacious house with the best stocked kitchen for gourmands! All was impeccably clean and welcoming. Huge view windows, comfy living room and huge kitchen table. And an easy 2-minute walk to the ocean.Wifi is horribly slow, but one should enjoy the view instead, right? I will definitely rebook!
Sharon M. from Junction City, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2013 This was our third time at the Gathering Place & we have enjoyed it every time. Some of our friends had been there before & were happy to be back. Other "newbies" so enjoyed it that they, too, look forward to returning.
Debra M. from Sweethome, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013 We had a family gathering at "The Gathering Place" with family members coming from Anchorage, Seattle, Medford and the Willamette Valley. We had a wonderful time. From games and puzzle times indoors, to boogie boarding and runs on the beach, to outings at local businesses, such as the Oregon Coast Aquarium. We found the home clean and ready for our use, and the layout was great for a large group. Our only real complaints is that there were some lights not working and the septic might have been having some issues, but when we called it was hours before we received a call back, and were told he would come the next day and he never did. Thankfully it was working, just had a warning buzzer that went off. Recommendations for staff: for a large group gathering there were not enough large serving bowls. Also, all the kitchen cupboards were full, so when we arrived with boxes of food, there was nowhere to put them away. It had to sit out on the counter space all week. But overall, we hope to be able to go back again!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thank you for your suggestions. We will definitely get some larger bowls and clear out the kitchen cupboards for your next stay. The septic has been pumped so it's working great. Overall we are happy you had a fun stay at Gathering Place.
Irene R. from portland, oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013 Very beautiful house, excellent location, lots of towels and other stuff, had a great time with my friends and family. The only thing I would change about the house is getting newer furniture at least for the bedrooms. excellent overall. Thank you
Paul K. from Cherry Hill, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 My family of 4 met up with good friends with a family of 4 and there was plenty of room for all. The house was clean, comfortable, well laid out and we all loved it. The ping pong table and pool table were put to good use everyday, including our mock "championship". The house had plenty of towels, utensils, pots & pans, videos, and beautiful views. The kids (young adults, ages 17 thru 21) all had a great time. The beach was just across the street and even at night was great! Waldport is a quaint little town with a grocery store and Liquor store. Newport it just 15 or so miles up the road if you need more commercial. We had seclusion and quiet unless we wanted otherwise. Overall everyone had a blast and we are sorry we had to leave.
A guest from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2012 Some old friends and I that had scattered throughout the country for new jobs and all met up (rather, we gathered) at the house over the New year's holiday to reconnect and had a wonderful time! The house was clean, had a great view, had a nice big kitchen and table for meals, and comfy beds. Thanks!
Bill S. from Waldport, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2012 We had several kids, grand kids, & a great grandson here for the holidays. The rental was perfect. Everyone loved it.
A guest from Lake Oswego, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2012 Great fun for the whole family. Had issues with the oven temperature and it not shutting off. Rental agent was wonderful as she worked hard to meet our needs.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC We will check out the oven. Thanks for advising us.
A guest from Auburn, Washington recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2012 Our family has stayed at the Gathering Place 8 different times over the years. The House is perfect for our needs and is very clean. The location is perfect! I would recommend this home to all my family and friends. Thank you Bay Shore for the great stay!
John S. from Lewiston, ID recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012 The house is very nice, roomy and handy location. It has always been well supplied with paper products, which is appreciated. We also enjoyed the pool and ping pong tables.
Gina W. from Kenmore, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2012 This is a great house. It was spotless when we arrived. The layout of the house was perfect for our different age groups. The kitchen was generously stocked and we had everything that we needed. We are already talking about returning next year.
Richard L. from Roy, Utah recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2012 This house was more than the pictures did justice to. It is a very large house that handled our tribe of people very well. The front room and kitchen area is fantastic for large gatherings and the downstairs worked out well for the little ones to entertain themselves. There are lots of windows to give light to the rooms and the front and back decks are handy for entertaining guests if you want to sit outside. The house had everything in it that you would want for cooking and cleaning for your stay. We all enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place for your large family gatherings.
Bruce N. from Bloomington, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in July, 2012 All of us who stayed at Gathering Place had a fantastic time! We loved the openness of the house itself, the ample room to spread out and the proximity to the beach! And we can't wait to come back!Bruce Neswick
Shawn M. from Spokane Valley, WA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012 We rented from Bayshore rentals a couple of years ago and found this property easily on your website. Sounded and looked great and we knew the location so everything was good.Upon arrival, I was disappointed at the shape of the home. Things are old and wearing out and the house really needs an overhaul. Great location and great access and nice layout. However, the door to the BBQ deck was dryrotted and fell apart when my wife opened it. The BBQ was disgusting and had to be cleaned thoroughly before we could use it.Windows wouldn't crank open, doors wouldn't lock properly. The deadbolt locks on the exit doors need to be replaced with two way locks that can be opended by anyone trying to exit the home. If they are locked with a key, they are a firetrap waiting to happen.The home could be great with some remodeling and updating. Very good layout and spacious but lacking in the details. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone due to the condition.
Paul B. from Kirkland, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2012 Enjoyed the layout of the house. With 7 grandchildren ages 2-9 it was great to have the play things on the lower level.
A guest from Springfield, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012 This was our 16th stay in The Gathering Place for our 16th summer at Bayshore. We love 'our' summer beach house. The only bad thing was my mom falling at GGs where my cousins were staying. The garbage cans were on the sidewalk on the side of the house. When she walked around them she tripped on one of the rocks that was out of line with the others. She fell on a sharp rock and cut her thumb. Twelve stitches were needed to sew the skin back on her thumb. This was done at the Newport Hospital in the emergency room. We are so thankful she did not hit her head. She was put on a painkiller and when she got home to Springfield she had to make an appointment with her doctor who had to prescribe antibiotics and a tetanus shot. She has been referred to a hand specialist due to the severity of the injury. Tendons were traumatized in the accident. The cleaning ladies for our rental were very concerned about the garbage cans and rocks at GGs so they told us they were going to make sure the trip hazard was remedied. They were very sweet & kind, and wanted to quickly fix the problem. :-)
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC We are so sorry that your grandmother fell and injured herself. There are no rocks out of place, it's a rockery that divides the two homes. I am not sure what she tripped on but we do feel badly about it. Hope she will be okay and thank you for being so nice, and thank you for coming for sixteen years!!!!
A guest from Clatskanie, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2012 We rented it for our son's 40th birthday, so all our family could be was perfect for all of us, and a wonderful memory for him. A time together for a special time to be a family...................
Janet C. from Salem, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2012 We had a Family reunion and needed a large place for it. With kids coming from Utah , Tennesse and Oregon the Beach was the favorite choice. The Gathering place was perfect. It had a good view of the Ocean and you could hear the ocean at night. The house was well stocked and very comfortable for a large Family. We BBQ one night on the deck ,it was great. The older kids loved the Pool table . We all decided we would try to get together next year at the same place.
Susan M. from Redmond, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2012 We stayed at the Gathering Place with a large group, including 6 kids. Because of the rain and wind we were only able to go to the beach twice in our three day visit. The house was so well stocked and outfitted with other activities we had great time in spite of the weather.
A guest from Kalama, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2012 Every year our family rents a house at the beach to allow our grown children and grandchildren time to be together and have some fun. I have never found such a perfect place for us to gather as The Gathering Place. We usually rent in the Lincoln City area, a central meeting point for our family, but this home was worth the extra hour's drive. We will be back!
Colleen R. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2011 This rental was perfect for the large gathering we had on New Years. Ample space for cooking and eating! Lots of places for sleeping arrangements in a comfortable setting. The view of the ocean was beautiful and the front deck was perfect for a cup of coffee and taking it all in. The house was surprisingly equipped.
A guest from Lake Oswego, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2011 Eleven family members from as far as Indiana were very happy with the choice of well named, "The Gathering Place". Beginning with ample parking ; the house provided very good sleeping space and privacy; the kitchen, its equipment, and the encouraged policy of leaving usable meal preparation items behind for the next group, made for great dining; recreation equipment from tv's, ping pong table, fine billiard table, piano, and books, games and puzzles offered enjoyment to everyone; the 2 decks, one in back with a good gas grill, and the large one in front with a picnic table and deck chairs for ocean viewing - all behind see-through wind-screens were well used. I'm sure we'll be back.
A guest from Auburn, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2011 We have stayed in this home several years in a row and always return. We have stayed in a few homes in the area and this is by far our favorite!

John S. from Lewiston, ID recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011 We enjoy the house. This was our third year and we are looking foward to next year. Appreciate the extras (pool table, ping pong table, etc) and that the house is well supplied with lots of items that we don't have to purchase when we arrive.
Lester R. from LaGrande, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 We loved our accomodations! Everything was so neat and clean. We enjoyed the convient location and closeness to the beach. A lovely home.
A guest from Avon Lake, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 We had a wonderful weekend at the home. It was set up wonderful, and stocked with anything you could possibly want. There were even sand toys in the garage for my children to play with on the beach....the garage was full of things that I assumed were the personal belongings of the owner....when I read the manual, I discovered that they are all there for us to use! It was a wonderful home, and I would definitely stay there again. We were even able to get into the house early, because they were finished cleaning it when we checked in at the office!
Jennifer R. from Redmond, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2011 Everything about this vacation rental was perfect. The house was spectacular. It had everything and more then we could have hoped for. The location and the view were wonderful. We had a large group 12 in all and all of us had plenty of room to spread out and get comfortable and relaxed. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much!
Jinny P. from Shady Cove, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2011 The home offers an outstanding floor plan with beautiful views of the ocean. Being a hobby chef I was very pleased with how well the kitchen was stocked with most all utensils, pots, pans, and what not to cook with. We found ourselves soaking in the sun and ocean mist from the deck and in the living room. We do plan on returning to the gathering place for future family gatherings.
Would appreciate getting into the house earlier than 4 pm; 2 pm would have been good
A guest from Corvallis, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2010
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Gosh, if you would have called us you could have been in a 9 am. We always allow guests to arrive early if they call ahead to check to make sure the house is clean and ready to go.
Teresa G. from Auburn, Washington recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2010 We have stayed at this home many times with all of our family over the past several years. We have tried different locations but always return to this one. It is very clean and is in a perfect location for our needs. Thank you!
Tanya C. from Bozeman, MT recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2010 We have rented vacation homes from Bayshore Rentals five times now. All of the houses have been great, but this house was the most comfortable for our large group. I just couldn't get over the amount of space we had! The best part about this house is the large dining area. The table fits 8-10 people comfortably, plus there is bar seating and two patio sets for additional seating. We also loved the variety of bedrooms and extra sleeping areas for all of our children. The ping pong table was also a big hit!
Gregg or Ruth D. from Roseburg, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2010 Place was wonderfully equipped to keep the entire family entertained. Kitchen was well-equipped,which made meals easy & fun. Size of the house was great, and the kitchen table was so nice and large. View was wonderful, loved the flowers in the yard. All in all, a great place to stay- highly recommended!
GREAT HOUSE, LARGE, ACROSS THE STREET FROM BEACH, BEAUTIFUL VIEW
Tony A. from Junction City, recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2010 This house was perfect for us, great view, all the games we needed for the whole family. Kitchen is incredible, only real drawback is a house this large needs another bathroom but I cant really complain because it was not an issue. \lots of parking on cement driveway, ping pong, pool, board games, two fireplaces. I was very satisfied with our whole experience.thanksTony-
