About Linda & Rich

Professional Married Couple... Airline Pilot

Linda & Rich

Linda & Rich purchased this house in 2004

Why Linda & Rich chose Central Coast

Incredibly Beautiful! LOVE the sights and sounds of the ocean! How convenient to have miles and miles of PRISTINE walking beach, right out the back door! The air is breathtakingly fresh and so untouched by man. How fun to watch pelicans fish in a straight line, swooping and dipping into the ocean one by one, with high hopes of getting their daily catch. There's such a beautiful serenity in watching the Bald Eagles soar and hunt for food to bring back to their young. Every once in a while, a whole family of Sea Lions will come floating by on their backs, fins up, basking in the sun. They're so cute!! At night, we love to sit in the hot tub and gaze into a star studded night, with a crackling fire roaring in the Fire Pit. For some reason, the stars seem to shine bigger and brighter on the coast!

What makes this house unique

It's GREAT having 3 King Size Beds for guests!! The Beachcombing is never ending, Whale watching, Bird watching, Boogie boarding, The kids LOVE to fly Kites, There's Games, Puzzles, and a Foosball Table. The 55' High Definition Flat Screen TV is WONDERFUL for both Movies and Sports! Jogging the 7 mile stretch of beach is Bliss... Romantic hand in hand walks on the beach, Building sand castles, Bonfires, Hot Tubbing (decking above hot tub has fiberglass sheeting attached to underside to shelter guests from rain while hot tubbing)... American Dream is just an all around GREAT place to unite with friends and/or family!

Nice, quiet time on the Oregon Coast in November

  • 5 of 5

There are already plenty of good reviews of this property, and I agree with all of those. I would just add that it came exactly as advertised. Even though it is pet friendly, we found no excessive pet hair laying around the house, or any signs of previous pets, for that matter. As a previous reviewer mentioned, there are plenty of notes around the house with the do's and don'ts, but nothing passive aggressive; just some reminders of what can damage the place (e.g., don't sit on the hot tub cover, take your shoes off because if you soil the carpet, you'll have to pay for the cleaning.... those kinds of reminders). The rental agreement correctly states you will have to bring your own paper products (toilet paper, paper towels/napkins) and soaps which I find a little odd. I haven't had that experience before renting homes, so that part was a little annoying. Chances are, the previous renters will leave a roll or two of TP and probably some hand and dish soaps behind as they did for us, and in fact, we left ours behind as well. You're welcome, next renters ;)

Kitchen is otherwise fully stocked with tons of dishes/utensils/glassware/etc. Plenty of towels to be had, too.

What else can I say... the view of the ocean is amazing. I might rearrange the furniture a little to have some extra space by the windows for our tripod and binocs, or somehow bring the focus of the room more towards the view and away from the TV. Although, we had some kids with us from ages 5 through 15, so the TV certainly got its use at times.

The hot tub was great. It's right off the drive, but the house is set back into a very private area, so no issues there. Beach access is among the best - just walk right down the steps from the backyard and bam!, you're on the beach.

Linda was VERY responsive.... she replied to any inquiries in short order.

All-in-all, we had no surprises... the rental was pretty much exactly as advertised. It was a wonderful experience for two families getting together on the Oregon Coast in a private setting.

As is always the case, the day we left was a sad one... we wish we could have enjoyed the house longer, but alas, it's back to the grind.

Even though there were a few minor things I might change, this is certainly deserving of a 5 star review. If you decide to rent this place for yourselves, you'll get exactly what is advertised.

Two thumbs up from us.

Thanks Linda!!!

Quite overpriced for what was delivered

  • 3 of 5

The place was nice. It wasn't falling apart, and had a great view. We do vacation rentals on a regular basis and we have stayed in much nicer, much better locations for about half of what we paid here. Not to say that this wasn't adequate, but for the price we were quite disappointed. We stayed 2 nights and with all of the extra tacked on fees (like to use the hot tub) it ended up being over $450/night. It was available last minute and after staying there I know why. It has a phenomenal, relaxing view of the ocean. Everything worked fine. Personally I found it annoying to have so many rules and warnings taped all over the house. I think a house rule book is better and gets the same job done, but I understand the owners may have dealt with renters that might require nagging notes all over the house. If you have pets and pet hair all over doesn't bother you, this place will be fine. We didn't love constantly cleaning it off our toddler and sometimes off the dishes. I wish I had a better review to write, but honestly for the money spent and a little more planning we could have had a much, much nicer rental and a much nicer location. Owners seemed very nice, we don't blame them at all for getting what they can for their home, but I would not rent again at the price we paid. We have rented a ton in Newport and this felt like a $200/night rental. You live and you learn. We are glad we went.

Owner's Response: We're so pleased you felt our place was nice, the ocean views fabulous, and that you were glad that you went :) I just checked the nightly rate for a room at the Best Western hotel in Newport. For one room, they charge more than half of what we charge per night for an entire beach home that sits on 2 oceanfront lots. We feel our rates are very fair. Nobody has ever complained about our prices. Your opinion surprised me. Perhaps you should have waited a few weeks (November 1st) when our substantially lower off-season nightly rate kicks in. As for housekeeping, it usually takes a full 5 hours to service the house after guests depart. We really don't feel the cleaning fee is excessive. Our hot tub maintenance man totally empties and cleans the hot tub between each rental and supplies all the spa chemicals as well. We don't feel his service fee is excessive either. The VRBO service fee is something new that VRBO charges for making the reservation for you. 100% of that fee goes to VRBO. You could have saved that fee by booking directly through us. The 1.8% lodging tax fee is another fee we have no control of. It's set by the state of Oregon and we feel it is quite a reasonable small tax compared to most places we've stayed at. Our beach home is dog friendly. It saddens us you encountered some dog hair... please accept our sincere apologies. Unfortunately the reservation before you had pets that had shed excessively. We have 2 excellent vacuum cleaners and they are serviced and emptied regularly. Everyone was quite surprised of the amount of dog hair vacuumed up. All furniture and bed skirts were lint rollered too. All dishes go through a sanitizing dishwasher and directly into the cupboard. Perhaps a dog hair floated in when the previous guest was serving food? It's anyone's guess. I checked the dishes after reading your review and couldn't find any hair. Now that we are at the end of our heavy summer rental season, all dishes will be removed and drawers will be emptied for our semi-annual deep cleaning. The cleanliness of our beach home is job #1!!! We've never had one complaint in twelve years of pet hair. Please read our MANY stellar reviews.

Fabulous holiday spot!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with the home, the view and the beach. The owners thought of everything to make our stay effortless and enjoyable. From the beach toys and skim boards, to the abundant towels..everything we needed was at our fingertips. Lots of space for two families with preteen and teenaged kids. The miles of quiet, sandy beaches were such a treat. We loved being able to visit nearby shopping districts and restaurants and return to the quiet of our own place :). Can't wait to go back !!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Kim! We're so pleased you're so impressed with our beach home, with it's beautiful view, and wonderful stretch of walking beach that goes for endless miles it seems. Glad your 2 families made good use of the boogie boards, sand toys, and beach towels :) Sounds like your family enjoyed and fit nicely with the local culture of seafood feasting and shopping the old town pier;) Glad you can't wait to come back!! Maybe next time you could take in Newport's aquarium. It's rated very highly... within the top 10 in the country ;) Thank's again for your patronage... We look forward to your return! Linda & Rich

Great location, great house, great owners!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed this house. The owners were fantastic to work with. We loved the location of the house - ocean front with great views and beach access. The house was great - clean and most everything has been thought of. Newport is a wonderful town to explore - we took our kids (ages 6 and 9) on one of the Sea Life cruises where the kids get to catch crab and drive the boat. We will be back!

Just the right spot

  • 5 of 5

Even for a short stay this beach house fits nicely. With really easy access to the beach it's miles of sand almost all to one's own. Just far enough away from civilization but close enough to the Rogue Brewery for a resupply.

Everything was as advertised and the owners ensure that everyone has a great experience.

Hope to come back again.
