About Roger Benney and Sheryl Craner

We recently moved to this area from Whidbey Island, WA, where we also had a guesthouse.

Roger works for NOAA, and we moved back to Oregon to be closer to work. We enjoyed operating our guesthouse on Whidbey and all the great people we met, and are excited to get this new venture underway.

Roger Benney and Sheryl Craner purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Roger Benney and Sheryl Craner chose South Beach

As retired salmon fishermen, we are very familiar with Newport and the sea. We love the area and are excited to be connected with Newport and Oregon again after being overseas in New Zealand and on Whidbey for the past 10 years.

What makes this townhome unique

We fell in love with the South Beach area and all that it has to offer. We love the outdoors, and it just seems like a great place to experience Outdoor Oregon. We have a labrador called Charlie, who we love to take for walks on the beach, and throw the frisbee for him.

We are right next to the South Beach State Park which has miles of great walking and biking trails. If you want to ride to the beach and be able to lock up your bikes, head up the road towards the ocean and follow the trail sign left to "Old Jetty Trail. This will end up at a beach head with lots of descriptive and informative signs and a bike rack.

There are maps in the information folder in the house.

What a great place to spend our Christmas Vacation!

Beautiful and comfortable space with a stellar view

Spectacular place to stay in Newport

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Super clean, high priority. But the home is beautiful, lovely furnishings and decor. As I walked up the stairs and saw the ocean view first time, amazing! We’ve stayed at a dozen beach locations in Oregon and nothing compares. Thank you to our hosts. We hope to be back again and again.

Incredible views of the bay and the bridge!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stay in Newport several times a year. (My husbands Great Grandfather is a notorious pioneer responsible for helping develop this part of the Oregon Coast, so this area is near and dear to our hearts.) Out of the dozens of rentals we've stayed at over the years, this is our favorite! Condo was super clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable and cozy, with views that never get old! We spent much of the days simply enjoying the incredible view, the boats going in and out of the bay, and the sea life right out the front windows. And the view at night is almost as good as the view during the day. The reflection of the colorful bridge lights over the water is stunning!!! We loved going to the local museums, where they feature Great Grandpa Jones and the history he helped make on this part of the coast. We also found our new favorite pizza place, Cobblestone Pizza, and they deliver!!!! Their pizza and garlic knots are delish!!!! We can't wait to come back to Newport and stay at this condo!!! Thank you Roger and Sheryl for sharing your amazing vacation home!

One of the best views in Newport, for one thing.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home in South Beach Oregon, just across the bridge from Newport. Two large bedrooms, 1 up and 1 down, provide privacy if you have a larger group. It was just two of us, and we were very comfortable. The view of the bay is such a special treat for us since we sold a condo with a bay view a couple of years ago. Seals frolic, lots of birds to watch with the binos. Get in touch with the rhythm of the sea, watching the tide go in and out. If we ever buy again in the area, we would seriously consider this complex.

it was VERY quiet, VERY comfortable. It has a very homey ambiance with throws, pillows, a gas fireplace and a well stocked and clean kitchen. It is within walking distance of Rogue brewery, the Marine Science Center which has a free aquarium, the Oregon Aquarium, and a funky shopping area with another restaurant (Fishtales). We walked out along the jetty daily and wandered around the neighborhood too. We can't think of anything we needed that wasn't at hand.

Pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations. Really comfortable, nicely appointed and a perfect location for walking to the state park, beach, public fishing pier, aquarium and brewery It is an end unit with beautiful views of the bridge and bay, as well as the jetty with breaking waves on the ocean side. Lovely. Rich opportunity to observe marine life too. Nice beds and bedding, comfortable furniture and nicely equipped kitchen. Owners were responsive and on-site instructions were user friendly. Five adults and two well behaved dogs had a wonderful family Thanksgiving weekend here. Highly recommend.

Fabulous views of the Yaquina river, the Newport Bridge, passing boat traffic,South Beach State Park, great walks through beach and dune forest trails to an unending sandy beach. The Rogue Brewery and the Aquarium are an easy stroll away.

The Old town and port and Historical Nye beach area are but a 5 minute drive

We have great Pacific Northwest fish available in fabulous local restaurants such as 'Local Oceans'.

Above all perhaps, is our comfortable town house which is equipped for a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Enjoy a glass of wine on the deck while watching the boats returning from the sea. Prepare your evening meal with the local seafood.. Pack up a picnic (we provide a picnic basket) and head for South Beach!
