About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

This spectacular oceanfront home has a wonderful historic style, a dog-friendly attitude, amazing location on a clifftop in Depoe Bay, and some of the best whale-watching opportunities you could hope to find! Combined with all the comforts of home and enough space for as many as eight guests, this is the perfect place to plan your next coastal vacation.

Nestled on a hill just on the south side of Depoe Bay, this home is close to the town's charming restaurants, souvenir shops, Whale Watching Center, and the world's smallest bay. From the harbor you can launch your own boat or book a spot on one of the whale-watching or deep-sea fishing tours that leave from Depoe Bay. The easiest beach access is less than five minutes north by car at Fogarty Creek, though you could also drive 10 minutes south to the breathtaking Devils Punch Bowl or north 10 minutes to Lincoln Beach and Gleneden Beach. You could even go a little farther north (about 15 minutes) into Lincoln City or take an equally short drive south into Newport.

With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, this home has plenty of space for up to eight guests (six adults maximum, please), and up to two dogs are even welcome with a small nightly fee. Inside, you will find antiques that complement the historic style of this 1930's house, as well as plenty of windows that allow gorgeous views of the ocean - look carefully and you can see harbor seals, sea lions, and even an occasional whale!

The main level of the house has a cozy living room with a TV and gas fireplace, a well-stocked full kitchen, a dining area, and a bathroom with a laundry area. One of the bedrooms is also on this level (featuring a queen-size bed) and a sofabed in the living room folds out into extra sleeping space at night.

Upstairs are two more bedrooms and a bathroom with a walk-in shower that is accessible both from the hallway and the master bedroom. The first bedroom offers a soft and comfortable queen-size bed, a television, and a lovely balcony that overlooks the town and the ocean. In the master room is a king-size bed, yet another TV, and windows with jaw-dropping views of the sea. If the weather doesn't cooperate as much as you had hoped, you can always enjoy a nice evening in and take advantage of the many entertainment options provided, including cable TV, a DVD player and selection of movies, WiFi access, board games, and a huge variety of books.

This home is a fantastic place to bring your friends or family and enjoy a vacation spent watching for whales, strolling around charming Depoe Bay, and enjoying each other's company. In the small town you will find just about everything you may need, though you could also drive up or down the coast to find more activities, state parks, dining options, and much more, so don't be afraid to explore!

Come stay in this amazing oceanfront home and enjoy a much-deserved relaxing coastal getaway!

About Vacasa, OR - Oregon Coast Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Warm and cozy

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home! The living area is so inviting and comfortable and the view stunning from both living area and bedrooms. Whale Vista is so convenient to all the places we enjoy in the Lincoln City/Newport area. We can't wait to come back in the near future.

Depoe Bay Winter Storms

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Whale Vista during the winter - and once again we were delighted with the view from each bedroom as well as the living room. Great home for 3 couples and their well behaved furry friends! Perfect location to explore the Oregon Coast... we hope to return next year.

Super Amazing View &amp; Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for opening up this spectacular home for others to enjoy! All of us had to pinch ourselves (especially in the morning) to believe we got to make ourselves feel so easily and naturally at home. We even appreciated the art and decor, which we hope you take as a huge compliment!
