About the property

4 Bed 3 Bath, Walk to Yaquina Bay Front, Sleeps 8 people-Great Kitchen & Deck

From the minute you walk into A Slice of Newport you will feel at home. It is spacious and open with lots of windows to bring in natural light and to watch the weather. An occasional Stellar Jay will show up in the backyard as well as Hummingbirds. The open floor plan is perfect for a group and the pocket doors allow some privacy or a noise barrier so you can be enjoying separate activities. The main living area has an open concept floor plan. The kitchen opens to the living room making it ideal for entertaining large groups or family gatherings. It is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare meals of any kind including a full pantry of spices and some staples. This home has 4 bedrooms, including 3 with Queen size beds and 1 with 2 Twin beds. Three full bathrooms allow everyone to get ready easily. The flat screen T.V. has surround sound and a DVR filled with a good number of assorted movies to watch. Games and jigsaw puzzles are available to help entertain you. If you feel like reading we have a large number of books for you to enjoy. The house will sleep 8 and there is a dining table large enough to seat everyone at one time. There is a store south of the bridge on the West side of the road, watch for a big sign that says CRAB, they can boil your crabs that you catch in the bay. (Newport is the Dungeness Capital of the World) The deck also has a picnic table and a gas grill. In the yard we have a table that can double as a fire pit. Wood is provided so you can enjoy a fire in the evenings when things cool down. If you love Oysters there is an Oyster Farm just 6 miles north along the Bay Front Road, which is a beautiful drive.

About Nancy Thurston

My husband and I have always vacationed on the Oregon Coast. Our favorite town each visit was Newport. We decided to buy a home there in anticipation of using it as our retirement home. We fell in love with this house and enjoy having a place we can call home in Newport. I am in Real Estate and my husband is in Business Intelligence. We enjoy the outdoors, cooking, entertaining and travel. It has been fun putting our beach home together and making it our home away from home.

Nancy Thurston purchased this house in 2014

Why Nancy Thurston chose Newport

As my husband and I searched for the 'right' house to buy in Newport we kept coming back to this one as our favorite. This home had so many windows and let in so much light that I felt like I was outside. The deck gives us a view of the Yaquina Bay and a place to BBQ. We really like to cook and entertain so a good sized kitchen was a must. This home is a great floor plan for entertaining groups. There is room to get away from each other or gather all together. The windows let in so much light and allow you to watch the weather when it rains. If you watch outside you often see Blue Jays in the yard and an occasional Hummingbird The open floor plan is great for groups. We like having a 2 story house so if some want to sleep while others want to play, the bedrooms are downstairs and the family, living room and kitchen are upstairs. You can see the Bay from our deck and you can enjoy the Rhododendrons in the spring, they are huge!

What makes this house unique

Because we love to cook the kitchen is very well stocked complete with many spices and a good assortment of condiments. If you are a lover of Italian we have a fresh pasta maker, along with lots of pots, pans, utensils and knives so you can make whatever you like. If you get the chance to go crabbing, Newport is the Dungeness Crab Capital of the world! The house also has a washer and dryer for your convenience and there are extra linens and towels if you need them. There is a flat screen T.V. with surround sound and a DVR with lots of recorded movies to choose from for your enjoyment. We also have an assortment of cards, games, books and jigsaw puzzles to keep you entertained while you visit.

Wonderful Family Beach Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My family had such a wonderful stay at Nancy's property in Newport! The house was perfect for our group (me and my husband, my mom, my younger brother and his girlfriend, and my older brother). It was spacious and clean and the open kitchen and family room layout was perfect. We even completed a puzzle together throughout the weekend which my mom thoroughly enjoyed :-). My brother proposed to his girlfriend on Nye Beach on this trip and we celebrated with the delicious bottle of wine that Nancy provided! Such a memorable stay.

Amazing location & beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

I will be coming back again & again. It is just a couple blocks from Bay Blvd. I suggest to walk to see all the plant life that the coast has to offer. You can hear the Sea Lion's from the property, the backyard is perfect for bonfires & so many windows to bring in the natural light. The house has so many nice little perks. I wish I could've stayed longer. Can't wait to be back because it's the PERFECT get away.

Great location and house!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to be in Newport but not right on the beach. We wanted to be where the action is! This house was perfectly located. We could walk to Bay Street to stroll and eat. It’s just a few minutes drive to coast street and to the beach it’s self. We were traveling with grandparents parents and four children and the house was perfect! I’ll bedrooms were together on the first floor and the living area Upstairs was a homey and perfect and had room for everyone. I whole family was delighted. Nancy was great to work with and very responsive and helpful.

Space for fun and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a girls weekend - we set up to sew quilts. We used the huge dining room table for five of us to quilt all weekend. Wonderful natural lighting, evening time we had to bring in a few more lamps. Fun!!

The kitchen and pantry are very well stocked. The living room is large and there is a lot of space for big groups to spread out - or stay together.

The owner was very responsive and a great communicator. I felt like if we needed anything she'd be able to help. We certainly would rent this home again.

Things to do in Newport!!!

Hatfield Marine Science Center-A series of informative exhibits at the Hatfield Marine Science Center gives visitors a glimpse of hot topics in contemporary marine science research.

Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area- Soaring more than 93 feet in height, this is the tallest lighthouse on the Oregon coast. This is a great hiking area.

Yaquina Bay Lighthouse- Nineteenth-century lighthouse is one of a few on the Pacific coast that was built with the light-keeper's quarters in the same building.

Newport’s Historic Bay Front- Wharf –Piers- Boardwalks –Shops- Restaurants- Oregon Coast Aquarium - Ripley’s Believe it or Not!

Oregon Coast Aquarium- Immerse yourself in the mysteries of the ocean. The Oregon Coast Aquarium is a world-class marine educational attraction nestled on beautiful Yaquina Bay in Newport, Oregon. The Aquarium is a living classroom for all learning styles and ages. As one of Oregon's top tourist attractions, the Aquarium is a vital educational resource for the state, with over 40,000 students visiting the aquarium each year. The Aquarium strives to be a center of excellence for ocean literacy and plays an active role in conservation and animal rehabilitation efforts. Recognized both locally and nationally for its outstanding exhibits and educational programs, the Aquarium is the 2011 and 2012 recipient of the 'Best Tourist Attraction' and 'Best Summer Camp for Kids' awards from the citizens of Lincoln County, Oregon. Parents Magazine, Forbes Traveler, USA Today, 10 Best(dot)com and Coastal Living named the Oregon Coast Aquarium among the top ten in the nation. The Portland Business Journal listed the Aquarium as one of the top five education-based nonprofits in the state and Spirit Magazine called Passages of the Deep 'The coolest 50 yards on the Oregon Coast. Devil’s Punch Bowl State Park- This is an incredible view... you don't get to walk down to it. You observe from the top. It used to be a cave and the top fell in... absolutely amazing to look at. There is a walk way that takes you around for a view of the ocean to the south that you see surfers. There are also tables to have a nice lunch with an awesome view. Great Wine shop there too!

Yaquina Bay Bridge- This bridge is deco and the detail used when constructing it is what is lacking today---flare. Don't miss the fact you can walk across the bridge at sunset or walk under the bridge from both sides. Take the drive toward Toledo at sunset or ride a bike, the light and sunset are amazing at that time.

Fisherman’s Memorial Sanctuary- Monument located in Yaquina Bay State Park that memorializes mariners who lost their lives at sea.
