About Diane and Ted Swenson

This property is owned and managed by Ted and Diane Swenson in Portland, OR. They grew up in the Portland area and have many happy memories of the Oregon coastline.

We like to eat out, work on the house, grill, explore the beaches, hear live music and hike. Of course just sitting on the deck listening to the waves usually take up the first couple of days!

Diane and Ted Swenson purchased this house in 2010

Why Diane and Ted Swenson chose Gleneden Beach

The Lincoln City area is a great location because you can find so many things to do....From mainstream concerts in the Chinook Winds Casino, to boating, fishing, antiquing, outlet mall shopping, and night life. I love that Gleneden Beach is close to the action, but allows it's guests to leave the noisy touristy stuff behind at the end of the day.

The neighboring Salishan Golf Resort help to keep the area upscale and quiet.

What makes this house unique

Our beach house property is private, located on a double wooded lot and is mere steps from the ocean. It is also within walking distance of a great restaurant, a tavern, a lovely nursery, and the post office. There is a large grocery store a couple miles south on 101.

It's been our dream to have a beach getaway for ourselves and to share this house with others who appreciate the unique beauty of the Oregon coast.

We enjoy sampling the local beers and wines and trying out new restaurants. Grilling fresh fish, listening to the waves and chillin'.....These are the kind of moments that make this house such a dream. Because there is a wooded lot next to the house, you'll see wildlife now and again...Ocean views in the kitchen make cooking enjoyable. This home includes remodeled kitchen and baths, plus the fireplace is great on a chilly night.

The short drive to Lincoln City 101 thru Siletz Bay is always pleasing with spectacular sunsets and wild life to look at along the way. The view changes all the time and is very peaceful.

Best 13th Birthday Party Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Took my daughter and her 3 friends, my mom and our dogs to celebrate my girl's 13th birthday. The bunk loft was GREAT for the girls to hang out, and have their own space. They loved all the funky lights and accessories. Mom and I had VERY comfortable beds in the rooms downstairs and there was plenty of room. The kitchen had great pots/pans/utensils etc. The view from the wall of windows was wonderful in the sun and the storm! Thank you so much for sharing your home!

Perfect Home to Celebrate the New Year

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home over the New Years holiday. The location is perfect if you want to explore the coastal cities since Newport, Lincoln City, and Depoe Bay are all a quick drive away. We never ran out of things to do at this location. The beach is very well kept and quiet, and great for searching for agates! The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and there is plenty of bedding, towels, and extra blankets. The XBOX was very nice to have when it was too chilly to go outside, and the games (HALO series, Starwars Battlefront, etc.) gave us pleasing nostalgia. We got to witness a giant hail storm that covered the beach with white on New Years day, it was stunning! I would highly recommend this house to anyone, and plan to rent here again soon! Diane was great at replying back quickly to emails. Thank you for being great hosts, and trusting us with your beautiful home.

Great Home to Rest and Enjoy the Coast

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was just outside of Lincoln City, but not far from Depoe Bay- and even Newport. So we were able to enjoy all three places. A few things we always want in a vacation home are: enough space for our family of 5 to be able to rest, a coffee shop nearby, and things within walking distance. This home had all of those. Gleneden is a walkable little area where there is a great restaurant- Side Door Cafe. They have a new cafe/coffee shop- which we did not try out. But did go a few minutes down the road to the Depoe Baykery based on another review and it was amazing!!!! Also the coffee shop right next to the Thriftway was great with good coffee. All within maybe 5 minutes. We drove into Newport and enjoyed dinner at Local Ocean. Going into Newport is always a fun adventure for our family when on the coast. Since we traveled with little kids, it was nice to be close to Fogarty Creek/Beach area because there is a great area for them to play in the water and also Beverly Beach where they were able to play in shallow water. But the beach close to the home was great for digging and playing in the sand or flying a kite. It is also a very clean and quiet beach and a very short walk from the house. We loved coming home and relaxing on the porch of the house, playing games, and utilizing the TV/Video/Netflix/Pandora set up. Even though there were no actual TV channels- we had so many options to enjoy with those- which was nice. And for families who need a place for baby to sleep- there is a pack and play which was nice not to have to pack. We look forward to hopefully returning to this home soon and creating more memories here. Thank you for being such great hosts, for creating a welcoming/inviting space, and taking amazing care of your home
