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 extra guests.

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. 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.

Please note that the cleaning rate includes both the cleaning of the home and the spa, which is professionally cleaned and serviced after each guest.

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 Central Coast

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 perfect beginning to our summer vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed and more! Lots of space, well stocked kitchen for cooking our meals, comfortable bed and furniture. We enjoyed the location in a quiet neighborhood with a great view of the ocean. Nye beach shops and restaurants within a short walk. We were happy that our dog was welcome too! Lauri was a pleasure to do business with, very quick to reply and easy to work with when setting up the reservation. We would love to go back!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay! The house was more than we expected, in terms of roominess and comfort. It is located across a quiet street from the beach. Some of us were able to scale the trail, and others chose to walk a few blocks to Nye Beach for easier access. But it was a nice, quiet, private feeling-no road noise, as so many rentals have. The kitchen and bathrooms had plenty of dishes and towels. We all got a kick out of the faux antlers and porthole/nautical theme. The fireplace was really nice to turn on for some instant radiant heat. We enjoyed watching the big screen TV, and owner was very glad to talk us thru a few steps on running it. The sauna was great and a couple of us used the hot tub, while I chose to use a regular bathtub, which I appreciated. Also nice is that there is a new swimming pool at the Newport Rec Center, which we all swam in when the weather got bad, and I could take a Zumba class there. 4 adults and 2 Chihuahuas had plenty of room; each person with their own bedroom. The only thing that I might add is that the sauna/master bedroom, while lovely, did have a musty odor, which might be troublesome for those with allergies. The porch was not slippery for us. We would definitely stay here again.

Flat out lied. No wheelchair accessibility.

  • 1 of 5

Reserved this home 6 months before my Grandmother's 100 birthday because it WAS listed as

wheelchair accessible, but it is not. There are stairs in the main living area and the master bathroom. No way to get to the toilet with a walker or wheelchair in either bathroom. Sent owner an email after the 1st night to let her know the hot tub could not be used because the water was low, it stunk, had an oil film, and a scum line. She responded that the tub had just been serviced the day before. But we own a hot tub and we know what a clean one looks and smells like. Needless to say, we did not get to use the hot tub. Also complained about the fact that the home is not wheelchair accessible as was stated on VRBO. Her response was to do nothing. She did however immediatley update her listing to remove the wheelchair accessibility feature. I got my security deposit back, but should have been refunded the hot tub cleanning fee as well as a portion of the rental fee because the home was not what was advertised. My advise..Be very careful when walking on the deck because it is extremely slick. Bring a few rolls of TP because you're only provided with " enough to get you started", and be ready to wash and dry 2 loads of towels before you leave. BEAUTIFUL VIEW!

Owner's Response: I thought it was wonderful that this guest was celebrating her Grandmother's 100th birthday, and we were very excited to help host the celebration. I provided a very detailed description of the home's accessibility to this guest prior to their booking. There are three steps to the front door, and three steps to the family room/master bedroom area. For some mobility challenged guests (i.e., uses a wheelchair outside the home but can navigate with a cane or walker inside the home) this might be fine. We have discouraged guests who are 100% wheelchair dependent from renting, because it does no one any good to host a guest in unsuitable accommodations. We ask guests to contact us prior to booking, since everyone's circumstances are different. With respect to the spa, I was at the home prior to this guest's arrival to make sure the home was in top notch condition. I let the guest know that the spa company was there cleaning and servicing the spa for an hour prior to their visit, and I was there the entire time. With respect to washing towels, yes we do ask our guests to wash towels and start them in the dryer prior to departure. This is standard in the vacation rental business to allow cleaners sufficient time to turn the house prior to the next guest's arrival. A vacation rental is different than a hotel stay. With respect to this guest's particular stay, I am less concerned with a bad review than that the stay was not to their liking. I would have given anything to have my Grandma around to celebrate her 100th birthday with a special trip like this, and I wanted this family to have a wonderful experience in our home. I think this guest is to be commended for doing this for her Grandma, and I am sincerely sorry the accommodations were not to their liking.

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.
