                      Additional Fees and Taxes:

                      As owner/operator i have deals that agencies don't;

                      One big deal is the fact that as owner/operator with the house in the county i do not have to collect taxes. This saves you 10%!!!

                      Fees: cleaning $125.00; hot tub $50.00; dog fee: $25.00 per dog per stay;


                      Notes:

                      To confirm your visit I must receive "Rental Agreement" and 25.00 booking fee along with 300.00 security deposit; if credit card is used there is a 10.00 credit card fee;

                      On the balance due, 30 days prior to visit, a 2.5% credit card fee is applied. I prefer personal checks.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: Hello, I'm Albert, being rather old, I have a long story! I was raised on a ranch in California and went into the Navy after High School. I served aboard the USS Bexar -APA-237, a troop transport ship that had survived World War II; We went around the world hauling foreign troops for the United Nations. After the Navy it was College, then Seminary and then missionary in South America with Southern Baptist; After a term of service we returned to the states; after pastoring a few years, I started working as a real estate agent and branched out into many other things. We hoped to live here part-time and California part-time and that worked until my wife got so sick she couldn't make the trip to Oregon; After we updated the house 2004-2006 she only spent about 50 days in the home; I started renting it out in 09 a year before she passed. The house was our dream home; it wasn't built to be a vacation rental, it just worked out that way. I think it make a nice year around place to relax and hope you will book a few days and find out for yourself.

                      Why the Owner Chose Waldport:
                      We looked at many properties before we bought Bray's Point; We bought here because of the Sandy Beach, my wife grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas and we spent some time on Padre Island. Here on the Pacific the water is a lot colder but it is the ocean and beach that attracted us. The house is on what the old timers call 'Big Stump' Beach (the Big Stump is about 1/4 mile north of the house) The beach is never crowded, and that was an attraction; you won't see many people on the beach! It is a get-away and yet it is only 16 miles south of Newport and 30 north of Florence. If you like a slow pace and a real get-away, this is it! Another reason we had to buy this property is because I wanted parking --and so we also bought a lot across the driveway; that is Bray's Point private parking lot; I will hold about 9 cars now; but it can be made bigger and probably will be before long. Parking is short at most vacation rentals on the coast, but not at Bray's Point; bring your boat and your camper; if your group is bigger than 12 , a camper in the parking lot is only 50. for the stay. This is the place to book because everything goes better at the coast!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                      The Unique benefit when you book Bray's Point is that you pay NO TAX --that saves you the 10 to 13.5% that the rental agencies are charging you; as owner/operator and the house being in the county, I do not have to collect tax. But the real benefit is the location; things to do, things to see, drink coffee and view the beach; and we have a lot of nice sunsets! Just come and recharge your battery. Another unique benefit, I can make special deals on the spot as owner/operator; rental agencies can't do that.
