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 Spectrum/Charter cable TV 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 game room. Here you will find a foosball table and dart board for your gaming fun. There is a seating area with side tables. Set down your drinks and snacks and get ready for some competitive fun. The game room is also home to sand toys for the little ones and plenty of lawn chairs to relax on the beach.

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. 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 when current regulations allow, 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 mid-June - mid-September.

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 Bayshore

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

Had an awesome time while I stayed here. Enjoyed whale watching and walks on the beach. Location was very convenient - shopping in Newport and family visits in Waldport. Had a blast!

Wonderful quiet weekend

  • 4 of 5

The house is well stocked from the kitchen to the playroom. Plenty of entertainment indoor and outdoor for the family. The house was exceptionally quiet despite its location in a somewhat dense neighborhood, and the location to the beach couldn't be beat. Nearby beach was uncrowded and extended as far as the eye could see in both directions. A wonderful place for a weekend retreat.

Wonderful House that feels like home

  • 4 of 5

Our family fit well in this home. House is well cared for, clean, neat, and comfy. Kitchen is totally equipped, all appliances were great, new clean and easy to use. Slept well on comfy beds. Location was perfect, great access to beach, deck and big BBQ kept us cooking at home every evening. We are a family who enjoys close quarters, and easily shared spaces. Will return!

Just like home but with the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

This home was equipped with EVERYTHING you will need...minus the groceries. Every cupboard is labeled so you know where to put everything back. The kitchen is well stocked with all the cooking things you will need. There is a barbeque and fire pit. The beds are comfy, empty closets with hangers so you can truly make yourselves at home. There is a pack and play so we didn't need to bring one for our little grand daughter. Lots of beach towels so no need to pack them, camping chairs to take to the beach, beach toys for the littles. Truly an A+++++++++ experience. This home owner thought of everything.....thanks Ronna!

Beautiful, everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Surf View for 9 days and loved it! We came with our 11 month old baby and it was very comfortable for us. Two other couples joined on the weekend with another baby and all 8 of us had space and all the amenities we needed. The kitchen is very well-stocked and even has sharp knives! I've never been to a rental where cooking was so easy and successful. The beach is outside the front door, but the stretch of dune protects from the strong wind. (Even in the middle of summer, it was 65 most days.) The pool access is an added bonus. The location is perfect for exploring the central coast. We will definitely be back!

Perfect location and home to stay in for your travel along the Oregon Coast!

  • 5 of 5

Oh, how we loved our stay at Surfview Retreat! It was the perfect spot to spend a little relaxing time during our full trip along the pacific coast. Waldport was a great central location that allowed us to travel north and south along the coast and never feel like we were too far away from retreating back to a peaceful abode each night. The beach (just a short ways out the back door) was beautiful and uninhabited for the most part. We loved that the owners had everything at the home that we could possibly need to enjoy the beach.

The home itself was very inviting and comfortable. Our family of six was able to spread out to have some individual time (necessary after a long road trip :-)) but also come together and enjoy playing darts in the basement and other fun activities. We definitely felt "at home" with all the thoughtful attention to details and information given to help our time there be the best it could be.

Ronna was a delight to work with! She was professional yet personal. Shortly before our visit I asked for suggestions of what to do in the area, and she took the time to send detailed information specific to the nature of our family. She was at the home just a few days before we arrived and she sent me a beautiful picture of the sunset from the back deck thus making me more excited about our trip. Our visit was everything I hoped it would be and didn't disappoint! I would absolutely stay here again!!

A Beach House with all the comforts of home

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen was well stocked. Good pans, salt, pepper, ketchup, mayo, olive oil, all the things needed to complete your meal. The board games, and toys along with the dart board kept everyone with plenty to do. My daughter made use of the sand toys and the split level helped give everyone their own space. Very comfortable place.
