About the property

3 Bedroom + Den, 2 Bath. Oceanfront, Hot Tub, Sauna + Whale Watching Platform.

Your adventure begins the moment you step in the door of Yaquina Surf Camp, a uniquely wonderful oceanfront home located in historic Nye Beach, Newport.

This three bedroom plus den, two bath home features amazing whitewater and Yaquina lighthouse views from its oceanfront location. You can look for whales spouting or fishing boats offshore while relaxing at the front yard bar.

The home has been recently renovated. It is decorated in a wonderfully unique western/camp/surf style that will appeal to kids of any age.

The home is full of amenities. Cozy up to the stone fireplace, take a relaxing sauna or soak in the new hot tub. Climb to the rooftop deck to watch for whales and fishing boats. Little campers have their very own getaway in the kids play loft.

All three bedrooms feature new premium mattresses and high-quality linens. Each bedroom is unique with barn doors, hardwood floors, handcrafted lights and carefully chosen furnishings for your comfort. The master bedroom offers a TV and fireplace, while a second bedroom connects to the den and can be used as a second master suite.

The den offers a flat-screen wall-mounted fireplace, elegant furnishings and a convertible leather sofa to accommodate an additional guest.

Hit the beach trail directly across the street from the house, and find yourself exploring miles of sandy beach. Hang a left and walk to the shops, restaurants and galleries of Nye Beach, a hip and historic beach community. Take a right and hunt for agates and sea shells at the cliffs below the Yaquina Head Lighthouse.

Rainy day? No problem. The aquariums, restaurants, museums, performing arts venues and shops of Newport are all less than five minutes away. Inside the home, you can enjoy a romantic fire, soak in the brand new spa, take a sauna or watch a movie on the new HD flatscreen TV's. A new addition is a 100" high-Rez projector screen for movie nights or gaming on your system.

There are also many books, DVD's, puzzles and games for the family to enjoy. Little campers will especially enjoy the cozy kids loft furnished with beanbag chairs, books and their own TV.

The home features four fireplaces (one gas, three electric), a fully equipped kitchen with new stainless steel appliances, expansive decks with a built-in bar, a rooftop deck/whale watching platform, and an outdoor shower with hot water to rinse off both people and pets after a fun day at the beach.

The dining area seats six, with additional bar seating for two, all with that incredible ocean view.

This is camping like you've never experienced it. Yaquina Surf Camp welcomes you and your family to make new memories and enjoy a unique beachfront vacation.

About Lauri Hines

We are former San Diegans who now live in Oregon, and love to travel with our Rottweilers.

Roy is a physician, and Lauri's background is in commercial real estate, so vacation rentals started as a sideline.

We bought our first vacation rental as a weekend getaway with our dogs, and loved it so much we decided to open it to other dog-loving travelers who also wanted a getaway.

The home was soon booked up, a movie was filmed on-site, and many guests returned on a regular basis to enjoy the home we loved so much.

Since then, we have stayed in many vacation rentals, with and without our dogs, and have used our stays to develop best practices to welcome our guests on their vacations.

Our passion is to create amazing homes that our guests will love: An amazing location, unique and stylish decor, superb comfort, a calming ambiance, and fun for the whole group.

From anniversaries to family reunions, milestone birthdays, and even times when families are gathering to say goodbye to a loved one, it is our honor and privilege to help our guests with their vacation accommodations.

Our homes reflect all of the happy vibes from family reunions and good times that our guests have enjoyed.

The great feedback from our guests drives our passion to create the best experience possible for them, so we are constantly updating and improving our homes to provide a great experience for our guests.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Lauri Hines purchased this house in 2015

Why Lauri Hines chose Newport

We visited many communities in the Central Coast area and fell in love with Newport.

This home was previously owned by an artist from Wyoming, who decorated it in a western/camp/surf style that included barn doors on the bedrooms, camp paddle door handles, elk and moose chandeliers, hardwood floors and custom lighting. We loved the eclectic, fun vibe of the house, the oceanfront location and the fun "extras" like the whale watching platform and kids loft. We knew this would be the perfect place to enjoy all the central coast offers while making new memories.

The most wonderful time I've had in a long time

  • 5 of 5

We arrived Lauri and was fortunate to meet her and her husband. They were absolutely LOVELY and so accommodating. They felt like old friends. So there's that.

Now about the location. Wow......we're surfers, so we wanted to be close to the beach. And we were, close to every good beach! The girls went running while the guys cooked and it was just the most perfect area for everything. Centrally located wonderful.

The house itself is beautiful, it has all the things you could ever want in an home. It even has a look out roof top deck! The spa was lovely and all the rooms and living area was so cute and cozy.

I wanted to buy this house by the time I left, it was so hard to get ourselves to leave.

Thank you Lauri for the wonderful stay and we can't wait to stay at your place again!

Owner's Response: Thanks Kiyomi! We loved having you as guests; you are all terrific. I am so glad you all had a good time, and would be thrilled to welcome you back any time. We are building another unit in the back of the property (ocean view) that will be done in the spring of 2018. It will allow up to 13 guests total so keep us in mind for your next friends getaway! Best, Lauri

I could listen to the ocean all day!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great vacation spot! The red chairs on the porch made it easy to find the house. The lights were on which made the house welcoming. I loved opening the windows and hearing the ocean. The house has many little gems. It was fun exploring when we first entered the house. I love the nautical theme. The master bedroom spa was a fun surprise. The hot tub was very nice. The shower was huge! My teenage boys loved the projection screen. The kitchen was easy to use and had all the cooking utensils I needed. The whale watching roof deck was a great spot to watch the ocean. The location was great! The path to the ocean would be difficult for some, but there are walking sticks to help. Once on the beach, there were few people and lots of room to play frisbee or football. I wished we had stayed a little longer to take in all that this house and community has to offer.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay. Although the house is a bit quirky and in need of some repair in places, we had all the comforts we needed. The house offers many amenities you won't find elsewhere: sauna, hot tub, movie screen, many fireplaces, loft, and outside rooftop deck, and right across from the beach! Fantastic views and ocean sounds. To be prepared, bring shampoo and conditioner because what they provide is minimal. Having to wash all towels (white and dark separate) before checking out is a bit of a logistical nightmare if you have the full capacity of guests. I wish there had been a pitcher in the kitchen for juice, and I recommend they cover the skylight over the master bed so guests can sleep in without the morning sun streaming in. Other than these minor issues the house great and was as described.

Perfect house for a relaxing beach weekend

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. There are lots of comfy seating areas for everyone to find their own spot and plenty of outdoor spaces as well. The kitchen had all we needed and the hot tub and sauna were enjoyed by all.

Cozy beach cabin - great for groups

Great spot! Hot tub and sauna are awesome. Nice and cozy layout and kitchen was functional. The only thing I’d mention is to bring bedding if anyone is sleeping on the sofas.

Nye Beach
Car: recommended

Nye Beach is a hip and historic beachfront neighborhood in the seaside town of Newport, Oregon.

It is an easy walk from Yaquina Surf Camp to the galleries, boutiques, pubs, gift stores and great restaurants of Nye Beach.

For over 100 years, people from Portland and the Willamette Valley have been coming to Nye Beach in search of solace from the Pacific Ocean.

In times past, cottages were built where women and children would spend their summers while the men of their families joined them for the weekend excursions in the beautiful Nye Creek area. In 1891, a boardwalk was built connecting the Nye Creek to the Newport Bayfront.

Early on Nye Beach became a popular location for summer college classes which were held in a specially-built auditorium. In 1902, Dr. Minthorn (stepfather of President Herbert Hoover) built a sanitorium east of what is now the Sylvia Beach Hotel. The sanitorium offered hot sea water baths and small dressing rooms for changing from street clothes for dip in the surf.
