About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath. Steps To The Beach. Owner Managed Property. No Booking Fees!

Welcome to Surf View Retreat! This home is located in the Bayshore neighborhood in Waldport. The home sits directly on the sand with a short path to the beach through small, sea grass covered dunes. As you enter the door of this family friendly home, you are greeted by an amazing ocean view through the large great room windows. The living room is on your left and is outfitted with leather couches and reclining chair. Plenty of seating for your party to watch a movie on the flat screen tv or just admire the view of the sea grass and sparkling ocean. This home provides DirectTV and wifi access. Directly adjacent to the living room is the open dining and kitchen area. The charming cottage dining table with custom beach upholstery will accommodate eight with the addition of a leaf and spare chairs. Or sit the kids at the large kitchen peninsula. There are three barstools and plenty of dining space. The bright, white kitchen is outfitted with a smooth top electric range with large oven, dishwasher and refrigerator/freezer large enough to fit all your vacation groceries. There is plenty of floor and counter space for several people to prep meals at the same time. The well stocked kitchen has quite a few small appliances and gadgets, plenty to make most gourmet meals. And while you are prepping meals and sitting down to eat, you always have the ocean view just outside the windows.

Head down the hall and on your right you will find the first bathroom. It is equipped with a sink, toilet and a large soaker tub, perfect to soak in after a day adventuring at the coast. The bathroom also has a door to the first bedroom. The bedroom has a very thick pillow top queen mattress and bedside tables. There is plenty of closet space with shelves and hangers for your clothing and suitcase storage. Directly across the hall is a charming bedroom with two twin beds, decorated in a nautical theme. This is the perfect bedroom for children, with plenty of space to hang out. Take the staircase down to the second level. At the base of the stairs on your right, you will find a family room. This room is a great place for the kids to watch tv or a movie or play a game, away from the adults upstairs. Or if you are looking for a quiet place to curl up with a good book, there is a recliner and sofa for your relaxation. The sofa converts into a full sized bed. There is a privacy curtain in the entry way, turning this room into a 4th bedroom. To the left at the end of the stairs you will find a game closet outfitted with games and puzzles, suitable for both adults and children. There are coloring books for the little ones and children's books to enjoy while in the house. Down the hallway to the right is a large bedroom with a comfy pillow top king bed. There are bedside tables with lamps for evening reading and plenty of outlets for recharging your electronics. There is a full sized dresser and closet for your clothing and plenty of hangers to keep things neat. Adjacent to the king bedroom, you will find a linen closet with all the bath and beach towels necessary for your stay. The second bathroom is directly adjacent to the king bedroom. This bathroom is equipped with a stand up shower stall, sink and toilet. Further down the hall you will find the laundry room. The laundry room is equipped with new front load HE washer and dryer. There is also a utility sink, iron and ironing board for your use. Back down the hall and to your right is a door leading to the garage. Here you will find a foosball table and dart board for your gaming fun. There is a seating area with counter. Set down your drinks and snacks and get ready for some competitive fun. The garage is also home to sand toys for the little ones and plenty of sand chairs to relax in on the beach. Feel like crabbing? Grab a provided crab ring and hit the public docks in Waldport to try your luck. Cook the day's haul at the marina, or bring back to the house and use the provided crab cooker and pot.

At the end of the day, sit on the large, oceanfront deck and enjoy the unique beauty of an ocean sunset while sipping a local wine or craft beer. There is a seasonal table and chair set available for outdoor meals as well. If you are lucky, you might see spouting whales right off our beach. They are easily seen in the summer from the deck or inside the house. Feeling a little chilly, or just like cooking over fire? Feel free to start a fire in the house fire ring, located directly in front of the deck on the lawn area. We have plenty of hot dog/marshmallow sticks to make dinner and dessert s'mores. Or use the provided fish grill basket for the day's catch. Enjoy telling ghost stories in the evening around a warm fire. If you prefer, there is a large gas bbq on the deck for your grilling needs. Beach fires are allowed on our beach, so if you want to be near the water with your evening fire, you are more than welcome to make a fire on the beach.

As a guest in this home, you have access to Bayshore Beach Club. There is a heated seasonal pool guests can use for a small daily fee. The season runs from June 20 - September 26.

Waldport is centrally located between Newport to the north and Yachats and Florence to the south. The seven miles of sandy beach outside our door are perfect for making sand castles, taking long walks on the beach or just relaxing. Head to the south and you will run into the Alsea River where it meets the Pacific Ocean. Look for the seals popping their heads out of the water to greet you. Head to the north and you can walk all the way to Seal Rock. Here you can harvest mussels from the rocks if you have the proper permit.

Enjoy your beach time at Surf View Retreat!

Note: there is a one story staircase to access this home. It may not be easily accessible for those who are mobility challenged.

Why Ronna Olsen chose Waldport

The moment we stepped through the door and entered the house and saw the expanse of the Pacific Ocean through the windows, we knew we had found our home. It was breathtaking. We have grown to love the small town charm of Waldport and yet we are so close to the restaurants, shops and activities of Newport, Yachats and Florence when we feel the need to do something more than enjoy the beach.

What makes this house unique

A great place to slow down and enjoy the beauty of the Oregon coast and to spend time with family and friends. The proximity to the beach and ocean make this the perfect vacation getaway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Trip to Oregon coast

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing time during our stay at surf view retreat. Ronna was so helpful and easy to get a hold of while making reservations and during our stay. The house was beautiful and had everything we needed and more! It is the perfect halfway point to stay and tour up and down the coast. The beach is so secluded and private, and just a quick little walk right from the house. My husband and our kids thoroughly enjoyed our stay. So happy to have found this beautiful home while we visited the Oregon coast. Thanks for helping to make our trip enjoyable and relaxing. Hope to come and stay here again!

Comfortable and well looked after beach house

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week at Ronna's beach house. The beach house is extremely comfortable, equipped with everything that you could possibly need (including kids toys, towels and even bathroom miniatures). The location is lovely with a short walk through the dunes to a stunning beach.

The proximity to the community (well heated) outdoor pool is a definite plus, especially when the cool breeze is blowing on the beach.

A very lovely vacation!

A Clean Well-Appointed Private Place Right on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I came for 4 days of R&R in mid-July and were not disappointed. The dunes and the beach are beautiful and amazingly free of people, even on bright and sunny days. It's often windy, but that's the nature of the Oregon coast--we had two rainy mornings that led to sunny afternoon/evenings, and our second day was even calm--a perfect beach day. We took the king-bed room on the lower level, which was great because it was a little cooler in the evening. We are finicky sleepers--we need it cool, and we need a firm king mattress; we slept very very well. The owners clearly stay on top of replacing worn items and otherwise keep the place in good repair. The house is very well organized--the instructions are extensive, but reasonably easy to follow. The kitchen has everything you need, and there is an excellent BBQ grill--gets HOT (for grilling a proper steak). Newport is 15 miles north, but it's an easy drive, and if you make it once, you can stock up at Kroger, Safeway, Wal-mart, whatever you like. (If you're like us, you also want to make a pilgrimage to the Rogue Brewery pub in Newport.) The coastline is worth the drive in both directions--check out the Devil's Churn and Cook's Chasm--south about 20 minutes (go at high tide). We can also recommend the Side Door Cafe for crab cakes, although it's about a 45 minute ride north to Gleneden Beach. We would definitely come back and stay again!

Perfect place to view, walk and stay

  • 5 of 5

We are a senior couple and Surf View Retreat was exactly what we were looking for in a place to stay on the Oregon coast. The house worked out so well. The kitchen had everything we needed. The beds are comfy and the easy path to reach the beach was appreciated at our ages. The beach is wonderful. Flat, uncrowded and beautiful in everyway. We felt at home in just a few hours to the point we even recorded TV programs for viewing after the sunset. All this said, the owner was really what made our visit the best. Her communications with us were fast, efficient and made us feel like guests in a home and not just renters. Overall an excellent two weeks. We look forward to another visit.

Immaculate, Bright, Million $$$ View!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 5 days during the Thanksgiving week. We travel often using vacation rentals instead of hotels. I admit I'm "prissy" so I'm happy to say this was, by far, the cleanest, most comfortable, organized, bright and welcoming rental we have ever stayed in! Because it was only the two of us we didn't use the whole house, but it would be great to bring our family there. Right when you walk in you have an open floor plan living room, dining and kitchen with HUGE windows that look out to an unobstructed view of miles of ocean, dunes and beach. Extra nice is the private access trail through the dunes to the beach, because if you walk just a few houses North of this rental they can't access the beach due to marshy conditions, so we felt spoiled to have that luxury :) Less than 5 minutes to grocery store or restaurant food in Waldport to the South and about 15 minutes North to Newport, we really didn't stray farther then that, besides Yahachts. Ate fresh seafood everyday! On the 3rd day we were sitting on the couches (gloriously comfortable leather couches) watching TV and forgot that we weren't actually in our own home...that is how comfortable we felt! We slept upstairs with a super comfortable pillow top mattress...and a good bed can make or break your stay. It was awesome! Ronna Olsen was wonderful in her communications with us, which I truly respected, and there is no question we would stay here again! Thank you for sharing your home and allowing my husband and I to actually experience REST!
