Across the bridge you can go whale watching, crabbing, charter boat fishing, or enjoy the many quaint shops in Old Town Newport or Nye Beach. There are also amazing sea food restaurants to enjoy.

This is one of the most beautiful areas on the Oregon Coast. A real hidden gem.

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 Central Coast

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!

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The property was very inviting and in a great location, close to everything that one may want to explore in Newport. Only wished we had more time to explore everything. We had a hiccup with the property and really appreciated Sheryl taking time out to making it right. They really try to make sure we have a good time. One minor suggestion- someone should go through the pantry and throw out the spices that have expired from years back... Yes this is reaching, not wanting them to get a big head! 😁?

Owner's Response: Thanks Bob for your informative and kind Review. We are glad that we could help out with the painters actions not becoming a real hindrance and thanks also for the useful tips on the culinary side. Respectfully Roger and Sheryl

Unbeatable view

  • 5 of 5

So clean. So comfortable. So beautiful. Perfect for me, hubby, and the girl teens. Great floorplan so the late night giggling didn't keep us up. Well stocked kitchen for cooking meals. We're headed back to Newport next spring, and this is the first place I'd look to reserve again. The view of the bridge is unbeatable. Cozy furniture, cozy fireplace, comfy beds with excellent linens and blankets. Love this place.

Newport Riverhouse

  • 5 of 5

The Riverhouse in Newport was perhaps the best rental we have stayed at in 6 years of renting from VRBO. The condo was spotless, as was the furniture, and garage. It was equipped with everything you need in the kitchen; no need to buy salt, pepper, olive oil, etc. The linens and towels were very nice and plentiful. The beach toys were very nice to have for the granddaughter, and next year we'll be pulling down the bikes. We met and talked to the neighbor who was perfectly friendly, and provides beautiful flowers to look at. Thank you Roger and Sheryl for providing such an exquisite rental. It was perfect for our family of five.

Car: recommended

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 localrestaurants 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 bsket) and head for South Beach!
