About Gina

Walt and Gina are your hosts at this unique location. We hope you enjoy our beach treasure. We enjoy the long beach walks, the wildlife and the convenience of being close to town, but out in the country. We have owned the home across the street 'The Captains Quarters' for 16 years now, and have enjoyed sharing that for the last 7 years. Many happy memories have been made there. So when this home became available we thought it was perfect to make it available so larger groups could gather and enjoy this special area.

We welcome you to discover this treasure and add memories of your own!

Gina purchased this house in 2012

Why Gina chose Central Coast

Location, location, location!!! Located in South Beach just 5 miles south of Newport's Historic and beautiful Yaquina Bay Bridge, in a small neighborhood of seven homes, we find peace and solitude here. It is an easy drive from the Willamette Valley where we live. When we want to be entertained we are only minutes from Newport's activities and great local seafood. We often feel more inclined to walk on the beach or just snuggle down with a good book and stay in our cozy home with the gas stove warming us if cold out.

What makes this house unique

Our ideal location provides easy private neighborhood access to an unfrequented seven mile stretch of beach on the Central Oregon Coast. Watch views of the waves, and wildlife afforded by large windows. All new, this clean uncluttered home is cozy and warm.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much! We have had such a wonderful time here! The accommodations are wonderful-fully stocked kitchen, comfy beds and all the extras we needed. Waking up to ocean views, sights, smells is great. Explored the aquarium and down by the bay front. But the best local attraction is just a few steps down to the beach! The sand, waves and sunsets are addicting.

We hope to return again!!!! We would not want to stay anywhere else!!!

This was our second time staying at this particular property and our third time renting from the owners. As always, our stay was wonderful. The property is clean and well-stocked. This time we stayed during the "storm" on the coast. It was so nice to stay inside and watch the stormy weather in this cozy retreat. It is a great place to stay with family friends, as well as our four-legged friends - house is pet-friendly!! Plenty of room for all. Looking forward to our next trip!!

Wonderful home with view and access to beach, Newport - perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home and just the right size for the five of us - grandparents, parents, and 10-year old. The house had everything we needed, and we enjoyed trying the waffle maker and popcorn maker too! The highlight was the beach access - we visited the beach everyday to walk, bike, or run and play with the dogs. Not crowded at all even in the peak of summer - perfect for the dogs to run free. It was windy at this time which made for a surreal beach mountain bike ride up about 3 miles to the jetty and then back. This was also close enough to south Newport - the aquarium, science center, clamming and crabbing by the pier under the bridge. Definitely worth it to come out here during negative tide and catch gaper clams.

Beach comfort and style

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful, open space with all the modern conveniences of home and more! The place is immaculate and lighting superb with huge picture windows looking out to the ocean and every creature comfort you could imagine. The owners have made settling in so easy with notes and instructions at your fingertips. The beach is a short walk and is very private and perfect for long or short walks. Our dogs were thrilled to be invited to enjoy the surf and sand. Highly recommend this lovely home!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! We love our location which allows for fewer people on the beach and great for guests with four legged friends. You are welcome anytime you'd like to get some sand between your toes/paws! All the Best, ~Gina & Walt

Immaculate house with Oceanview

  • 5 of 5

This is a very interesting roundhouse. Beautifully remodeled with Oceanview. House is in immaculate condition nicely furnished, well-stocked . Downside: Upstairs , the 2 bedrooms are very small, claustrophobic with the door shut. Also couldn't sleep because of the highway noise . But, there is a nice bedroom downstairs with the beautiful master bathroom suite. So if your light sleeper like I am you still have a option

Also because of the location of the house there really isn't anywhere to walk your dog. Unless you go down the steep stairs to the beach. The street the house is located on is right off the highway.

I still give the house a five star, because the owner can't do anything about the highway noise, and they can't do anything about the location. Everything about the house that is in their control is what makes it a five star

Owner's Response: Oh my, it sounds like you used the wrong access. The beach access at the end of 100th Court, which is at the end of our street, belongs to our neighbor and is quite steep. As our home instructions indicate, our access is located just the street below, a short walk, on 100th STREET, the street you turn in on, which has a much more gradual path to the beach. Sorry you missed that. There are miles of unpopulated beach for puppies to run in each direction. The upstairs bedrooms are not big, but with the 12 foot vaulted ceilings (complete with recessed lighting) and one with a 6 foot slider that brings in a ocean view, we have never before had anyone comment on feeling claustrophobic. I am glad the downstairs room was comfortable for you.

Exactly what we needed and more

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a little escape from reality for a few days and we got just that. The home has been beautifully remodeled and they thought of everything. A midnight bbq on the deck listening to the sounds of the ocean. ✔ Waking up to a cup of coffee and breathtaking views. ✔ Soaking away the stress of real life in a large jacuzzi tub. ✔ Taking your dog down to the beach ro run, play, and explore. ✔ And every little detail inbetween. Our only problem was leaving, we wish we could have stayed longer.

Owner's Response: Thank you! Your kind words make all our hard work to remodel it so worth it. And you will just have to come back and stay longer next time. The ocean sounds, sweeping views and sunsets will be waiting for you.... ~Best, Gina & Walt
