About Jeannie & Don Andre

Native of Newport , Or. Active in building the Oregon Coast Community Forest Association.

Jeannie & Don Andre purchased this apartment in 1988

Why Jeannie & Don Andre chose Central Coast

When I was seeking to move back home to Newport from Southern California, I wanted an oceanfront home for peace and tranquility.

What makes this apartment unique

I walked into the house and saw the lighthouse to jetty face-melting view - I was done looking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As a former travel agent I've always been extremely picky about finding great places for my clients to stay; and I want to tell you we were overwhelmed with the accommodations at the Ocean Wind Retreat! I could not find one thing that I was wanting for. Don & Jeanne were perfect host with a great knowledge of the area (ask Don about his Lincoln County forest project), and interacted with us as much as WE wanted. Both of their energies were addicting, and I don't normally like to converse with strangers. We went to the Oceanic Gallery down at the bay just to see Jeannie's art and ended up buying a few pieces just to remember our most perfect and 30th wedding anniversary. The whirlpool tub and sauna are DIVINE. They even left us agates on the back stoop since we only found 1. The goodie basket was an extremely nice touch. Our dogs loved it there and loved their puppy Spot! You will never know they live on the top floor, everything is private. The view from the secret bench is worth a 1,000 words! Book now with no worries. The only negative would be, we didn't stay longer than 3 days. We will definitely return! Thank you Jeannie & Don!

Cozy snug beach nest, great beach and close to park.

  • 5 of 5

Quiet time at the beach was what we wanted and what we found. Lots of special touches from fresh flowers and a welcome basket of goodies to dog towels and treats. Lovely long sand beach to walk, reasonable restaurant right next door, and the amenities of Newport are close but unobtrusive. Hosts even left laundry soap and quarters along with instructions to the closest laundromat! Hosts are helpful and available if needed. Could use more and brighter lighting inside but then I have old eyes.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Such a cute, quaint cottage. The location could not have been better. Morning walks on the beach, walk to the Bay Front or the town of Nye Beach. Such welcoming gifts when you arrive. There was a goodie basket for me as well as my dog. I loved it and will visit again.ok

Renew and reconnect in this wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two dogs stayed for a long weekend at Jeannie and Don''s amazing apartment. I knew it was on the beach and I knew it was going to be what we needed for our get away but I had no idea it would be so perfect. We were looking to reconnect after the busy Christmas family chaos and this was just the ticket. Jeannie and Don equipped the house for us but also for our two fur babies. There were dog treats and dog towels and a water dish all waiting for us. This place was so comfortable and homey we didn't feel like strangers in a strange land. This felt like coming home. The captain's roost and the hot tub were our favorite spots to relax and my husband loved the personal sauna. The view and beach access were wonderful and the gift basket was the best of any we have had in the several years we have used VRBO rentals. Generous and very nice goodies to munch on. Such a nice surprise. After meeting Jeannie and Don we understand why this place is special. It's because they are special. We will come again and we will recommend it to our friends. This weekend goes into the memory books because of this warm and comfortable place.

Another fantastic New Year's at Oceanwind

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year in a row that we stayed at Oceanwind for the New Year's celebration, and it was even better this time. This place is wonderful, the Jacuzzi was again a real treat, we enjoyed soaking away the stress. We will definitely be back again next year.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location. On a cliff right next to the beach. The view was awesome except where blocked by some brush. On the next property over, there are stairs to go down to the beach. We didn't use these so don't know their condition. On the property, there is a path through the brush to a sheltered bench with a fantastic view of the Newport beach. No highway noise, just roaring ocean.

Inside, the rental was very clean. It smelled like a beach cabin, not like a motel. There is a sauna and a big tub with jacuzzi jets and a view of the beach. The owners nicely put candles and towels next to it. The kitchen is stocked with most items. No stove or oven, but there is a microwave and toaster oven. There was a thoughtful gift basket with food. Coffee beans, grinder and coffee maker. Half and half in the fridge. Queen bed in the bedroom and a loft bed in the dining room to sit and read and look at the beach. You can sleep three. If you had small kids, they could sleep on the floor.

Never saw the owners. She texted me before we arrived and said rental was open and the key was on the table. I just texted her whenever I had questions.

Overall, it was a great place to spend our anniversary.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review........ the steps to the beach are great by the way ( maintained by Georgie's) and we have permanent access to the stairs from a gate from our parking area....I am always trying to balance out the ( I think face melting views)of the ocean with appreciating the native plants and wind protection, privacy and bank stabilization they provide.... I will keep this in my mind as we landscape.....and again thank you so much for noticing all the fine touches.....sorry we didn't get to meet you this time......... Thanks, Jeannie

Gorgeous View from every window in the place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This little gem was incredible! Its so hard to find dig friendly places without all kinds of crazy hidden fees. We loved our walks in the beach, and the easy access. We had dinner at Georgie's next door, the night we got here, which was easy, and had amazing food. Last night, we ate at Local Ocean on the bay front. Also, great food! The owners Don and Jeannie really have an incredible spot on the coast, and you can tell they enjoy sharing it. Thank you for a secret get away weekend.
