About Nancy Blair

Nancy purchased the first half of the duplex in 2004. It was a dream come true for her! Steve and Nancy were dating then and when Steve went up to Newport to see the property, he knew she had made the right decision, as he was just as excited about the town and the property. Since then, we got married and this is our home away from home. Nancy is a professional property manager and Steve is the director of a juvenile hall. We both enjoy long walks on the beach. Nancy's interests include interior design, gardening, cooking, reading and listening to music. Steve loves to be outside taking walks, gardening, reading, and watching sports. Steve also enjoys the symphony, opera and theatre. We hope you enjoy your stay at Blair's Beach Retreat as much as we do!

Nancy Blair purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Nancy Blair chose Central Coast

I fell in love with Newport, Oregon back in the early 90's while driving through town along Highway 101. There was something about Newport that stayed with me all these years and when it came time to purchase a home, I immediately thought of Newport. I planned a week long vacation and met with a realtor. This was in October and I had sunny weather the entire week (they call this realtor's weather). This was the PERFECT place for me being across the street from the ocean and with a view of the waves no less. The town is adorable with two lighthouses, Historial Nye Beach and the Historical Bay Front areas within blocks of the duplex. The duplex is located in one of the best parts of town for a vacation home. The other reason I choose Newport is because the town is the county seat with all the facilities right there; a library, several stores, casual and fine dining, the Visual Arts Center and the Performing Arts Center with their own symphony. Newport is more than just a tourist area, it is a home away from home. Even after all these years, I'm at peace when I drive into Newport.

We owned the other half of the duplex and when this side became available to purchase in 2007 and Steve and I jumped at the chance to own the entire building. Now it is possible to rent either side individually, or both sides for that larger group, family gathering, wedding party, or corporate retreat.

What makes this townhome unique

We love to walk on the beach! The ocean and it's shore is constantly changing; from the wind swept sand designs with new and interesting patterns made daily, to the ocean waves in a storm and finally to the sunsets that are breathtaking. As my father said after a nice walk on the beach, that he truly understood why we chose Newport Oregon as our second home and had this to say, 'If you ever doubt the power of the Universe, come to the Oregon Coast'.

Great location, nice place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Nancy was so easy to work with. We loved the place and the location was great - just across the street from the beach! The kitchen was stocked with appliances and utensils, sheets/towels were nice and the tv/fireplace/technology were all easy to work.

Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation while staying in this house. When we arrived, the place was clean and orderly with all important items such as turning up the water heater and the thermostat easily readable. Just a couple minute walk to the beach and a couple minute drive to grocery stores. We will stay here again in the future...Thank you

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first time renting a vacation home. Everything went smoothly and we had a wonderful time in Newport. Plenty of room with plenty to spare for our family of 5. Easy beach access and located in Central Oregon coast so easier access to both the north and south. Thanks for the stay!

Perfect spot to make vacation memories!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at Blair's Beach Retreat the week of July 4th. My husband was very pleased with the cleanliness and luxury of the home. The kids appreciated the plush couch and bunk beds. They also loved riding their scooters on the LONG driveway in front of the home - loved how far the home is pushed back from the street. The home was well stocked with every cleaning product & kitchen gadget you could need. Thank you for the extra paper towels, facial and toilet tissue! We used the home as our base while we visited lighthouses & state parks to the north and south. Great central location and easy beach across the street - between Shiloh Inn buildings C & D. Already missing it... will definitely come again!

Owner's Response: Dear Beth, I am so happy that your found everything to your liking at the duplex. I want to make sure that not only is the house VERY clean, but also it is well stocked with everything you need and use in your own home. That is that advantage of a vacation home versus a hotel. I love the long driveway too. It is so quite there. Hope to see your family again soon. Nancy & Steve
