Why The Owner chose Bayshore

Our family dreamed of owning a beach home for decades. We finally found the perfect house at the perfect location, for our family to enjoy for generations. We love Waldport because it is a quieter and not as crowded as other coastal areas. There are restaurants and grocery stores, and our house is just a short drive to shopping and other major coastal attractions.

What makes this house unique

We love watching the kids exhaust themselves on the soft sand dunes through the huge picture windows as we relax and visit with friends and family. We enjoy walking from the bay side of the beach to the ocean side, watching the seals, beachcombing, building forts with driftwood, and kite flying.

Lots of space, lots of comfort, and GREAT location

  • 5 of 5

My group and I have stayed at this house two years in a row. We've been doing a yearly beach retreat for the past eight years, and this is the first time we've stayed anywhere twice. This house was perfect - large size, reasonable price, great amenities, and beachfront! What more could you want?! It's just a quick drive to town, but this last time we didn't even make it to town because we were enjoying the house and the beach too much. I highly recommend staying here.

Best Choice for Large Families!

  • 5 of 5

The Sandcastle is by far the best choice you could make for a large group. It is located on the corner of the bay and ocean, giving you views and easy access to both. We flew kites, built sandcastles, rode boogie boards and caught crab! What fun it was to discover we could catch them by throwing our nets right off the beach by the house (early morning as the tide is coming in was the best).

The main level of the house has a fully stocked kitchen with a toaster, toaster oven, coffee maker, Kerig, microwave and blender. There are plenty of large pots and skillets for all your cooking needs. There is so much silverware and dishes that we didn't need to use any of our paper products. Serving and mixing bowls, baking pans and serving utensils galore.

There is a double sleeper sofa on the main level and the master bedroom with a king size bed and full bathroom (handicap access) and a view of the ocean.

The upper level has a bedroom with a twin bed and trundle (which can be put next to each other to make a larger bed). It has a view of both the bay and the ocean. The second bedroom has a king size bed PLUS an attached room with two twin beds. Also in this room is a little cubby room with a crib mattress, which is a fun hideaway for the kids. The room has a sliding door to separate the kids room from the king size bed, for added privacy. This room has a great view of the ocean. There is a full bathroom on this level.

The lower level has a double sofa sleeper in the game room. There is also a bedroom with a queen size bed and a bunk bed (two twins). A roll-away twin bed and two portacribs are stored in the closet. There is a full size bathroom on this level and also a laundry room. The game room on this level provides a Foosball table, air hockey, a large screen TV with cable, a wet bar with refrigerator and a sink.

Then there is the bonus apartment located over the garage! It is much larger than I expected, with a separate bedroom with a king size bed, a twin trundle bed in the living area (2 twins) and two twin mattresses in the loft area. It has a full bathroom and kitchen.

The owners have provided extra sheets, blankets and pillows, plus towels for the bathrooms and beach towels. There was even shampoo, conditioner and soap in the bathrooms. The owners are very organized and have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable and easy as possible.

Perfect family reunion house

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all for a great family reunion. The rooms were set up just right so each family member, young and old, had a place to sleep and store their stuff. Lots of storage places, well stocked kitchen, toys for the kids, great view......The secret sleeping alcove upstairs was awesome for our youngest family members. Lots of room to hang out together or separate when the teens and kids wanted their own space (they loved the basement). We enjoyed being right on the beach, but secluded by dunes and some distance from the water. We have rented a lot of houses for our 20+ family reunion group. This was by far the best house we have had. Thank you for sharing this home, I hope we can visit again.

Sandcastle Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family (all 17 of us) had 3 days and nights of fun and relaxation in this beautiful, accommodating beach house! Perfectly situated on the ocean and river confluence, it affords spectacular views! S'mores, kites, hikes, shells, games, food - we did it all! And as I was telling a friend about it, it turned out she had already had a family get-together in the same home a few years ago and they enjoyed it all as well!!
