Antoinette A. from Corvallis, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2016 This was a wonderful house. The four of us had plenty of room. Great view. Very clean and not musty nor did it smell of perfume.I would take sharp kitchen knives if you like cooking...
Carla T. from Salem, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2016 A friend and I needed a house that was easily accessible, no stairs/steps..this house worked beautifully for us..the view was amazing and beds very comfortable..The sofa needs to be replaced, it was quite uncomfortable to sit on.We needed better lighting to read by than the two 60 watt soft bulbs gave us, we contacted Lori and she handiman over with 3 way bulbs for the two lamps and an extra lamp..much better..Lori was great to work with before and during our stay..
Tim A. from E. Wenatchee, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2016 We enjoyed our stay ! The property was well maintained and clean. The owners have taken care of many small details to make your stay comfortable. Would stay there again!!
A guest from Milton Freewater, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in September, 2016 The house was very clean. It had deteriorated from last year. The toilet did not want to flush in the small bathroom. The sink in the large bathroom took a long time to drain, so it had to be cleaned as the soap used to wash our hands would cling to the sink sides. There was the sheet problem which you took care of - thank you very much. Some of the towels were dingy looking. We rewashed them before we used them. Other than those problems the stay was great. We both love the sound of the ocean and watching the waves & the whales. There were many whales out this year. The yard was nice - the flowers were in bloom and very nice to look at. The property is in an excellent location. It was very clean. BayShore Rentals took care of our needs. We had planned to rent it again next year, but it was already taken, so we have booked another house in the same neighborhood for next year. We would recommend this house to anyone looking for a nice home to rent. We would also recommend your office to book a rental home.
Nancy R. from Salem, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2016 The house was so clean and well-kept. The view was incredible and we saw whales spouting regularly. The staff at the rental agency were so friendly and helpful. They even stopped to buy me a CD player so my vacation could be perfect. They are definitely an incredible asset to the business; A PLUS for them. We did, however, have trouble with the TV. Some of us are not as technology savvy as others. :}
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Sorry about the TV issues, we would have been happy to show you how to work it, there should be directions there. Hope to see you again soon!
Reviewed by: Wes W. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2016 Great location near Newport owners worked with us with our dogs! Hope to return next year, oh did I say the view is great and the house was well stocked with everything we needed.
Reviewed by: Lynda B. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2016 We had a great stay at your property. The ocean is so close you could hear it at all times. The home is beautiful and worth the cost. I have recommended this property to friends already. The upgrades are wonderful and the beds very comfortable. The master bath is a bit small and the shower a bit different but use was as needed and the rest of the home more than makes up for it. Loved the laundry facilities and the bbq in the garage was perfect for a night of cooking out under the stars. Loved the courtesy touches the owners leave for you. Having an opportunity to take a piece of the home back with you (the stone basket in the living room) is a perfect touch for a home you rent.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thanks for the nice review, we hope you can return again soon.
A guest from Missoula, MT recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2016 The rental home has an awesome location for accessing things to do. You can be in Newport in less than five minutes. Seems very private. Had most everything we needed. A couple of the bathroom towels need to be replaced as they are worn and maybe some added utensils in the kitchen. Beds were comfy, lots of room, decent access to the beach which seems very private. The views are amazing!!! I would stay here again. We enjoyed our week immensely!!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thanks for the review, we will take your suggestions and speak to the owner and look over the kitchen utensils. We hope you will return again soon.
Nicole B. from New Plymouth, ID recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2016 The house was amazing! Quiet neighborhood, very peaceful. House was set up with everything we needed, loved the deck outside. The view was spectacular, a lovely home to stay in. We (five total) were there for five days and were very comfortable for the whole stay. While we did not have a pet with us, the home was very dog-friendly. The proximity to attractions in Newport was convenient. Access to the beach was a little confusing and might be laborious for some but it was private which was nice. Once again, Bayshore Rentals was an absolute pleasure to work with. I will always look to them first anytime we plan on going to the coast. A++!
Krista R. from Osborne, Kansas recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2016 The house was wonderful. Everything was so nice and it was great having a washer and dryer after days on the road. The bedrooms are nice and spacious & the beds are super comfy. The view was amazing and we were lucky enough to see whales almost every day. Kids had a great time at the beach.
Patricia M. from Saipan, MP, XX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2016 We felt so invited as the home had a welcoming warm feeling to it. The beds were absolutely comfortable and got good sleep. The fireplace was wonderful to use and experience on our last night. Best equipped and organized rental home ever stayed in (especially easy and good to cook in kitchen). We used the BBQ grill for a salmon dinner one night. The neighborhood feels safe and serene and the walk to the path down to the beach was very doable and did not feel far to us. It was great to venture out to Nye Beach, the lighthouse and tide pools, and Oregon aquarium By late afternoon but looking forward to coming back to beach home retreat for a good time and relaxing and enjoying the views from the house
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thanks for the amazing review, we hope you will return again soon.
A guest from Corvallis, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2016 A Whale of a view is a wonderful home, in a great location, with amazing views. Just as described in other reviews and the main descriptions.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thanks, we hope to see you again soon.
A guest from Mountain Home, ID recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 Beautiful View. Clean and well maintained. Comfortable beds. Everything is well labeled for use. The kitchen is stocked with everything you would ever need in the way of utensils! The home is equipped with just about everything you would need, including binoculars, which we forgot to bring. No garage door opener, but there is a keypad outside and the code is inside the garage above the opener. The master bathroom is very tiny, but useable. Love the extra shower in the garage.
A guest from Lewiston, Idaho recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in May, 2016 Wonderful property and very neat and clean! We watched whales (Orcas for the first time in 40+ years of coming to the coast);ate lots of seafood;enjoyed family ranging from 95 years old to 3. My favorite house! Thanks a million for the wonderful May weather!
Kay F. from Philomath, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 Love the house and the location. It was a perfect house for my family. The weather wasn't the best but did have a few days of sunshine. Will definitely come back. No one could get cell service but it wasn't a problem.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Cell service is pretty spotty in that part of the coast, we do have a land line there for your convenience. We hope you will return again soon.
David C. from Bellevue, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2016 We are repeat customers to this house. We continue to be very happy with the condition of the house and the necessities provided. The view, location, and non-public beach are still assets. The rental agent is excellent as well. When the recent wind storm left a try hanging over the driveway and from utility lines, the problem was taken care of promptly.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thanks for your continued business, we appreciate you!
A guest from Bellingham, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2016 This was our second time staying here. It is a very clean, organized, well equipped house...and the location is fantastic for us. The view is wonderful and beach access is only a couple blocks away. We had a couple small issues when we first got there but Lori addressed them immediately and was very gracious about it. Overall, a great place to stay and we will be back a third time, I'm sure!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Great, thanks. For some reason your numbers on the review was reversed so you gave us 1's instead of because your verbiage was so positive we will assume that was the case. We hope you will be back again soon.
Reviewed by: Merry Lynn R. does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2016 The view is expansive but the living room needs some comfortable chairs closer to the TV. The existing chairs were very uncomfortable and the couch and chairs were a long ways from the TV. Others must have had this problem since there is a note from the owner asking guests not to move the furniture! Also, too bad there is a brick wall separating the living room from the kitchen and dining area, so those rooms are cut off from the view. The fireplace in the kitchen is inoperable, and the one on the living room wall is so low, it wouldn't be easy to use (if it works.) It should be noted that the only "tub" in the house is extremely small and shallow--it covers the bottom of the shower. Not sure what you could use it for--to bathe a dog or a child? (I wouldn't want to lean over it to do that though.) The setting was nice--you drive through some trees to get to the house. The yard needed mowing, and the amateurishly done patches on the numerous cracks in the concrete driveway were unsightly which didn't give a good first impression of the house.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Sorry you would not recommend A Whale of a View to future guests. We are honestly shocked to see this review on our web site. This home is a great favorite of our guests. We do not advertise the fireplace in the kitchen. We've never had a negative comment about the chairs or couch, or the fact that you think they are a long way from the TV. The reason we have the sign posted not to move furniture is because we have had guests move TV's, dressers and even beds to locations where they feel the furniture belongs. It's amazing to us that we actually have to post signs like that in our vacation homes. Yes the bath tub is very small in the bathroom.. Sorry about the yard but this time of year between the rainy days it's difficult to mow these yards (technically, it' still winter time). Again, sorry you were not happy with this home, the owners take great pride in establishing a warm and welcoming environment and as a management company we are thrilled to have this home in our rental pool.
Kristy R. from Forest Grove, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2016 We very much enjoyed our stay...we all wished we could prolong our get away and stay a few more nights! The house was warm and welcoming, truly felt like a home.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC We hope you will come back again soon!
Wendy H. from Mount Angel, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in January, 2016 My mom and I needed to get away from the unhappiness of life. Whale of a View was the perfect location to do this. Sunny days were wonderful but even on the normal Oregon rainy coast day the view was amazing. My dog joined us and had a grand time on the beach. The owners put a lot of thought into this home. We didn't want for anything. Bayshore rentals rescued me when the DVD player died, when I locked my keys in the house and when we needed to check in early. It was a wonderful week and I'll always cherish the time with my mom.
robert c. from camarillo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 16 days in November, 2015 Our fourth time to Whale of a View and as usual it was great. Even though it rained every day, we still loved our stay. House and location are perfect for us. We'll be back in November.

Nancy B. from Junction City, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2015 We were delighted with our experience at Whale of a View and plan to return next year. The location is wonderful-- fantastic view, quiet, well stocked and only a short drive into Newport.We sat on the deck watching whales, walked on the beach for hours and enjoyed clam chowder down by the docks of Newport. The only drawbacks were the furniture in the living room and mattresses on the twin beds. While definitely adequate, the living room furniture is not very comfortable for older people to use and the mattresses on the twin beds were not firm enough (the king beds were great.) However, they are adequate and the fact that the house is so well furnished, especially the kitchen--we plan on going back.
A guest from Missoula, Montana recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2015 We so enjoyed the wonderfu view..and the house was inviting.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC The owners have made so many improvements in this home! Not sure why you chose to put an "N/A" for services from rental manager since we do interact with you several times but we are happy you gave the home high marks and hope you will return again soon.
William K. from Boise, Idaho recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in August, 2015 This is the second year we have stayed at this house and we absolutely love it! It is clean and very comfortable and we love the beach. The close location to Newport is a definite plus!
A guest from Oregon City, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015 This great rental is the perfect fit for our family. It is dog friendly and kid friendly. It is in a quiet neighborhood and just a short walk to the beach. The view is outstanding and the beach is mostly deserted and beautiful.
A guest from Bend, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 Loved the house and everyone in my family had a good time staying there and loved the view. Our friends who live on the beach in Newport remarked it was better than theirs. The only draw back was that the neighbors thought we had more than 6 people staying on the property which was not true. We hosted dinners there in the evening for other friends and family members and after which they would leave as they either lived in Newport or had accommodations in local motels.
A guest from Carson City, Nevada recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in April, 2015 We had an amazingly restful vacation - the weather was great, the beaches fantastic, and the home had everything we needed and the cleaner did a spotless job. The neighborhood folks and everyone we met were so very friendly that it felt more like we lived there than were visitors. We will be back as we love the area. Certainly miss Fred Myers!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC We appreciate the wonderful review and hope to see you again soon.
A guest from Sammamish, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 We couldn't ask for a better place to spend a long weekend. The house was neat, charming and welcoming. Our teenage boys spent hours collecting rocks and drawing on the sand, while we enjoyed the view from the deck. We were just minutes away from local and chain groceries stores, and also restaurants. I will definitely recommend it.
Roger C. from Vancouver, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2015 Our Stay there was excellent, comfy beds, great access to a very private beach, quiet neighborhood, good cooking utensils, new appliances. We were all very happy with this place and will be back for sure!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thanks so much for your positive review. We hope to see you again soon.
David C. from Bellevue, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2015 This was our second stay in this house and I expect we will be there again.The location was perfect for us with town and the off leash dog area near by. Groceries, etc., aren't far at all. There is a good drive-in expresso stand just to the north before you get to the bridge.The view from the deck is the best feature of the house. It is in a quiet safe neighborhood but has some privacy. The beach is essentially private for the neighborhood. The house was clean and contained all the essentials needed. I would suggest adding some more rugs on the wood floors as it is very slippery for the dogs.The Bayshore staff was great to deal with as always.
Mandi S. from Tangent, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2015 Great location, quick access to beach. The beds were softer than we prefer, but everyone is different. Dog friendly with doggie sheets available, and even a hall carpet runner - that we found on last day :/ but is available. The kitchen is blocked off from the living room, but with two ovens you can bake up a feast. Bring firewood!
Ann R. from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2015 Yes, the house does have A Whale of a View! The new deck was appreciated for an afternoon break.We were impressed at how organized and sparkling clean the house was. The home was so welcoming that we felt like we were visiting a friends home. The Bayshore staff was wonderful too. Thanks for a great stay!
A guest from Camarillo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 30 days in November, 2014 We spent November here and love this house. We've been coming to Newport for the last thirty three years. We've stayed in some great places, but everything about this house is perfect for us. We'll be back.
Joel M. from Stanwood, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in October, 2014 Most comfortable beds we have ever used in a rental, have never seen valet garbage pickup - was nice not to have to take it out to the street, new appliances.
David C. from Bellvue, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2014 We thought that this house would satisfy our basic list of "wants" when we researched it and it did. The property management staff was just fine to work with. The view from the living room and from the deck was great. The house was clean and had every item that we could have needed. The neighborhood was private and quiet. After a short walk to the beach, we found a clean and private beach experience without the usual gaggle of tourists. We would recommend this house and this agent to friends. The deck was a great place to sit and experience the ocean though I would recommend equalizing the height of the last step and adding a step railing. The south beach location was close enough to shopping and places of tourist interest.
A guest from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 Best part was sitting on the deck and seeing whales. Worst part was not knowing that we had to bring our own coffee filters;need to know the type of coffee maker in the first place in order to bring correct filters. Perhaps a specific list of "consumable" paper, etc. should be included in any e-mails to avoid misunderstandings.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Gosh, sorry we DO provide coffee filters for all of our homes. Not sure the cleaners were aware of this but they are now so rest assured next time you come there will be plenty of filters for your enjoyment. We apologize profusely, thanks for the "heads-up".
A guest from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2014 Cleanest rental I've ever stayed in. The view was breathtaking, and the location very private, while still convenient to Newport. The house is charming, well-furnished, and exactly what I was looking for.
A guest from Boise, Idaho recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in August, 2014 Had a wonderful relaxing time! The home was very clean and the perfect location. Wonderful quiet beach that stretched for miles! Would love to come back.
Pamela S. from Palm Springs, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 We stayed for a week and wish we could have been there all summer! The house was clean, comfortable and well stocked. I'm a cook and really appreciated the fact that it had a little of everything needed for preparing good meals. Above all, the views were superb, the beach beautiful and empty, and the neighborhood was quiet. Yes, the house could use updating, but there was nothing broken, dirty or in disrepair. It was comfortable, cozy and someplace we would like to come back to! Bayshore was great to work with and, if you are looking for a quiet place to just relax, read, and unplug, this is it! Plus the house is well stocked with puzzles, books and games, in case you run out of your own entertainment.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thanks for the wonderful review, we hope you will return soon!
Reviewed by: Alisa H. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2014 Nice clean home, amazing view, a little farther from the beach than it appears. As previous reviews had said, it was difficult for an older family member to get to and from the beach. It's also silly to have to drive 20 minutes out of the way just to pick up the key.
Dawna S. from Salem, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 This house may of old, yet like a great wine, it delivered. The home was very pet friendly, and up to date with the times. The view was spectacular, close to stores, and the beach was a hop away. Plus the beach was not crowded. Such a peaceful community, and the home was so nice. Thank you so very much.
Ron M. from Dufur, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 Whale of a View was everything we were looking for, for our family get-together. The fireplace was a big hit as the weather was a bit cool in the evenings. The view was great and the walk to the beach was very enjoyable. We have friends in the neighborhood which made the house location even better. We will return.
A guest from Bellingham, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 I'm always nervous to pay for something online that I haven't seen in person. I have to say, the house was exactly how it was pictured. Just a great little place, sorta away from all the bustle of Newport, but close enough to do anything you want. The deck was the best part. GREAT addition. We will definitely be back!
Pieter B. from Scio, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 Great property for our family. Beach access was a short walk away and the house was very pet friendly and had everything we needed for our fur children! :)
A guest from Camarillo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in May, 2014 Just returned home after a really enjoyable two week stay at A Whale of a View. Everything was as advertized and more. Could not be more satisfied. Will definitely be back.
Pam C. from St. Joseph, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 We loved this house. The property was on of the cleanest rentals we have ever come across in our 10 years of renting on the coast. Bravo to the owners for thinking of anything and everything you would need.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC The owner will cetainly be pleased to read this and so will the cleaner~our cleaners are fantastic and hardly ever get the recognition they deserve.
A guest from Beaverton, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2014 Love the oceanfront view! Everything was clean and comfortable. Nice neighborhood. Short walk to beach or you can drive to get even closer. This was our first stay here, and hopefully we will come again soon.
Very Comfortable House - Caution if you need cell service
A guest from Albany, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2014 We have been staying with Bayshore Rental for 20 years. All of the houses have been great, but this one is just a bit "better" as far as amenities and the amount of comfort from the beds, to cooking in the kitchen. The beach access was easy for my family and the views incredible. The WiFi was perfect. And how dog friendly it was. All of the extras from dog sheets to places to put sandy shoes. Well thought out. The only caution I have is if you need cell service (run a business, need to have calls forwarded or texts), be aware there is zero service in the house. I have AT&T, my husband Verizon Wireless for his work. Neither of us could take or make a call inside the house. I could standing end of driveway. He had to walk down the road quite a ways. But with better preparation, we would definitely stay again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC I wish we had control over the cell service but of course we do not. It is a hassle, and we apologize. This is one reason we mandate owners have a land line, especially in times of emergencies. The owners of A Whale Of A View have thought of every amenity, we agree. It has paid off in lots of return guests and great reviews. Thanks for your honest feedback. I am sure future guests will appreciate knowing about the lack of cell service in the area.
Teresa B. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2014 Enjoyed the place very much. It exceeded my expectations. Only drawback was having to travel 15 more miles to pick up keys and again to drop them off. The staff at Bayshore are friendly and helpful.
A guest from Independence, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2014 We had such a glorious time. Everything we needed, great location and the view was breathtaking! We have a 14 year old dog that goes everywhere with us and it was fantastic to be able to bring her with us. Best vacation in a very long time! Already made reservations for anniversary in October!
Linda F. from The Dalles, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2014 Pictures are sometimes better then the actual property. Not so here. This was an absolutely wonderful place. My husband, who does not care for the coast, said he would go here again because it was so comfortable. So we are going to plan another trip.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC YAY, we are happy to hear we have managed to win your husband over! We hope you will come back soon.
A guest from Humble, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013 Great view! Nice older home with some updates. We really appreciate that it is a dog friendly property. Everything in the home worked fine, and the home was exactly what we expected (i.e., the internet description was accurate). Do be careful on the floors - they are very slippery! We have an elderly dog with arthritis in her elbows and hips and she had trouble walking on the smooth surface.
A guest from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2013 This was our second visit to Whale of a View in 2013. We have two whippets and are so glad this is a pet friendly home. We loved our stay and plan to be back!
Randy R. from Roseville, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 Whale of a View is an understatement. Best view we have ever had on this or any coast. We had a great stay and it was almost like the weather was custom ordered for us. The house is well laid out for it's compact size. While some appliances were a bit dated they all worked flawlessly. I will defiantly be returning here to stay and would have no reservation recommending this house as a comfortable, relaxing place to stay. Pet friendly, great view, relaxing.....couldn't ask for a better Oregon Coast experience...Don't bother packing extra bedding, towels or blankets, this place is clean, nice bedding and warm blankets....
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2013 Lovely view. Home was very functional and the owners are obviously thoughtful about comfort. Access to beach may be difficult for older folks to walk to.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC The beach access is very easy walk to the north along the neighborhood street. It's gradually sloaped. Not sure what beach access you are referring to in your review. We will check the house and make sure for our future guests that the directions are available.
Scott F. from eagle river, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 We felt right at home. The house was very comfortable. The location was quiet. The view overlooking the ocean was beautiful. It appears the locals are keeping their beach access a secret but you can find it two side streets north of the house. Take a left at the yellow/white fire hydrant and follow it to the street to the trail head. Sharon and I had a great time. We'll be back!!!
Susan and Robert W. from Carlsbad, NM recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 There are caveats and clarifications regarding this rental.The pickup and drop off of keys for this unit is a major inconvenience. After you pickup keys you drive an additional 10+ mile to the house. Then on checkout you must return them to the office. This means you potentially have an additional 30 miles added to your trip. The keys could easily be left inside when you leave and a lock box could make them available on arrival. This is a terrible policy that begins and ends your trip with unnecessary inconvenience.There is really, truly only one shower that is useable by anyone over 5' tall and 95lbs. The "tub" is barely big enough to soak your feet in. 2of the three showers are cramped little stalls. One of the two commodes is so close to the wall that I hit my knees. The best bedroom faces west. We couldn't use it because there is a little, shin high table at the foot of the bed that is perfectly placed for you to trip over. I would have moved it but there is a strict "Don't move the furniture or get fined $100" policy.The kitchen is old, but functional. Dishwasher has a broken wheel and catches, crashes and gets jammed. Oven grates not secure and tip outward if pulled out more than about 4inches. Be careful or you will get burned using this oven. The knives are dangerously dull. Bring sharp, safe knives. We did not consider that we would need to bring salt, pepper, condiments, cooking oil, basic spices. Bring these with you. Doing the dishes and the laundry should be part of the cleaning charge. You will have very poor cell phone service. Wifi is good. Views are spectacular and the whale watching is the best I've seen, including Monterey Bay. You will be alone and relaxed. There is a TV, but we didn't turn it on once. The views, deck and backyard made TV unnecessary. Shore access is close and private.
Chip N. from West Richland, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013 This home had a great view, and the owners are doing a great job redoing a home that sat vacant for 5 years. The hallway bathroom sink has a major problem as it does not drain properly. The cleaning crew needs to check the vacuum cleaner to make sure the filters are cleaned out. The oven needs to be cleaned. It would be nice to have a few more pencils and pens. I loved having a garage for my car! It was also great having owners that live just down the street, too! Overall, this is a great home that will be even better with time.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC Thank you very much for your suggestions. We will definitely bring your concerns to the attention of the cleaning crew.
Nancy C. from Hillsboro, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 The house was great and we all want to come back. We have already referred a friend to Bayshore Rentals. Agency staff great!
Bonnie W. from TUALATIN OR, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013 Overall it was a pretty good stay. The house was clean and roomy and the view was great. We saw whales passing by on our first evening there. We found the beds to be very comfortable and there were plenty of towels. We were not happy with the lack of condiments in the kitchen. We have rented other homes that have a nice supply of spices and essentials such as salt, which we had to buy. Also the showers were very small and had low shower heads, a bit of a problem for the men. All in all it was a nice place and we did enjoy our stay.
Dannille H. from Oregon City, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2013 We loved the view from this property and the weather was unbelievable. The second morning there we spotted a whale feeding not far from the shore. It stayed for 30 minutes.The house was clean and comfortable. The big table in the eating area was perfect. The only thing we wish to change would be just a little update to the bathroom.The neighborhood is very quite and friendly and we would love to return.
Linda C. from Milwaukee, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 Loved the location and floor plan worked well for us. The ocean side king bed blanket was covered in black dog hair which transferred to the sheets. (We washed) Reported this to manager, who said she'd make sure housekeeper was told. Other than that, we felt it a wonderful,well equiped rental house! Great access to the PRIVATE beach!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC We apologize for the oversight, usually our cleaners are on top of the cleaning. Thanks for washing the sheets and blanket. We are very sorry.
A guest from Bellevue, WA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 I would recommend this property to a friend if the keys were left in a lock box at the property. Having to drive to Waldport to pick up/drop off the keys, was a serious downside to this property.The house itself was nice enough and the beach access is fairly close.
Leslie P. from Fort Collins, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 We loved this place! It did not was very clean, great extra amenities (pots, pans, towels, soaps, blankets, games, books, movies) with a wonderful view of the ocean.The walk down to the beach wasn't far. The beach was sandy and fabulous with a small creek running through it which was great for the kids. Newport is just a few miles down the road to the North with lots of fun activities. The home had laundry facilities which was very helpful with the little ones. We appreciate it is a pet friendly home! Thank you. We will be back!!
Justi F. from Albany, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2013 Nice house in an great location! Loved the deck overlooking the ocean. Easy access to a beautiful beach. Would definitely stay again!
Penny W. from Medical Lake, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2013 This is a hidden gem!, if you want a great view, quiet/private neighborhood and plenty of room for yourself and guest, then you are here!updated living room and outdoor deck with comfortable chairs. Nice plush beds and a full kitchen. Bayshore Rentals is trusted and proven to make your stay problem free! The nearby walk to the beach was very private and easy to get to. We're coming back!
Erin J. from Sandy, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 We loved this house. Nice big King sized beds with beautiful ocean views from bedroom windows and living room. great ocean view from deck outside. All it needs is a path to the beach straight from the house, but the walk to the beach is super short, so no biggie. I didn't get great cell phone reception from inside the house, so maybe a cell phone booster somewhere on the property would help that. We love, love, love the house. I hope to stay there again!
A guest from Demascus, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2013 This property has an amazing ocean view. We loved the sound of the pounding surf and the beautiful sunsets. We enjoyed the new deck and furniture. The beds were very cozy and the house was very clean. Some of the rugs were a bit of a tripping hazard, but overall we were very pleased and would use this property again.
