'Spirit of the Sea' is a spacious, peaceful beachfront home with elegant furniture and a wide deck affording magnificent ocean views, set high on over an acre, next to undeveloped, forested coastal land. The home is ringed by pines and the deep green growth of the Northwest. Easy private access down some steps to miles of virtually deserted beach both north and south. The beach is five hundred feet wide at low tide. You’ll be both exhilarated and soothed by the unceasing roar of the Pacific breakers rolling in, by the flight of gulls, pelicans, and eagles, by the wind in the trees, and by the nearby creek flowing out of the forest over rocks down to the sea. Fly one of our kites, build a sandcastle, search for agates, make a beach bonfire or use our indoor fireplace and wood stove. Luxuriate in the oceanfront hot tub, read while swinging gently in the hammock, grill your salmon and dine on the deck or at our large dining table, relax and watch the night sky over the Pacific.

About the owner: Sharon is a psychotherapist, Jeff is a pastor and college professor of religion. We have four wonderful children, two sons and two daughters. Originally from the Northeast, we have lived for many years in California, and we love the American west.
Why the Owner Chose Newport: We both feel very connected to the natural world. Sharon especially loves the sea, and Jeff loves the evergreen forest. We both need plenty of peaceful, quiet time, which this location richly affords. We love to hike the beach and the forests. The house is set well back from the main road and has few close neighbors. It is spacious and open, and allows us both to entertain guests while giving everyone their private space.
