You'll have an unforgettable time at the Oregon Coast when you stay at this oceanfront two-bedroom Waldport vacation home. Tucked right behind a dune, it's just a few steps down to the sand. Perfect for a family getaway, you can even bring your dogs!
The comfortable interior is a relaxing space to spend the evening, with tall slanted ceilings, wood beam accents, and large picture windows. With plenty of furniture, everyone can find a cozy spot for watching TV, browsing cable channels, or popping in a DVD. Lay out some snacks on the coffee table and settle in for a movie night with the family. All this, and a wood burning fireplace will provide both heat and ambiance on those chilly coast nights.
Out on the deck, you can listen to the ocean while you sip your morning coffee and work on a crossword puzzle. There's a trail right from the deck that leads down to the beach, making an early morning run with the dogs so easy!
When you want to gather everyone around for meals, the large wooden table can be set to accommodate all. And since it shares the space with the living room, you can still appreciate the warmth from the fire or the view of the beach grasses swaying outside.
One of the benefits of renting a vacation house is definitely having your own kitchen! And here, you'll be able to plan meals with ease. You'll have a refrigerator, stovetop/oven, and even a dishwasher. Smaller appliances include a coffeemaker, coffee grinder, toaster, and microwave. It's just like being at home, except better because you're on vacation!
On the main floor, there are two bedrooms, each with a queen sized bed. Both rooms have a distinctly maritime aesthetic, with ocean-influences accessories and colors (one of the rooms even has an ocean view). There are also practical accessories like bedside tables, lamps, and dressers for added convenience.
Head downstairs, and you'll find a large room complete with twin bunk beds, another TV, and a pool table! Keep younger guests entertained down here, while the adults socialize and hang out upstairs. Or, kids of all ages can hold a pool tournament and stay up late watching movies and playing games. Other amenities in the house include a washer and dryer, WiFi, and beach chairs to bring down to the sand. This home will comfortably sleep up to eight guests, as well as up to 4 dogs (though a nightly fee per dog and a minimum fee per stay will apply).
This adorable beach home is part of the Bayshore Beach Club community, so you'll have access to a seasonal pool and a clubhouse game room as well. Please note that to use the Bayshore's pool and other amenities, you must purchase a day pass. The stretch of beach here is long and sandy, ideal for beachcombing, hunting for shells, watching a colorful sunset after dinner, or just planning a picnic down on the sand. A short 20 minute drive south, will take you to Cape Perpetua Scenic Area, as well as the town of small coastal town of Yachats.
To the north, there's Seal Rock for exploring tide pools, and another 20-minute drive from the house will take you to Newport and the popular Oregon Coast Aquarium - a great excursion on a rainy day.
Right in the town of Waldport, there's also plenty to do. Besides the uncrowded beach, fans of fishing will love spending time a bit inland at the Alsea River, where salmon and steelhead can be found. There's also clamming and crabbing, as well as a handful of galleries in town for those that would rather browse fish-themed art rather than interact with actual fish. And when you don't want to make a meal back at your kitchen, Waldport has a number of restaurants to choose from - Carol's Cafe is a local favorite for breakfast and lunch, the Flounder Inn Tavern is the place for broasted chicken, and Azul's is the spot for a tasty Mexican food fix.
You'll definitely want to book a stay at this charming Waldport vacation rental. Offering a great location, a comfortable beach cabin interior, and bonus community amenities, The Nautical House is a wonderful home base for exploring the central Oregon Coast!
