Oceanfront suite w/ gorgeous views of Pacific & easy beach access - dogs ok!
Boasting amazing ocean views and a highly desirable location in the charming Alpine Chalets retreat in Otter Rock, this warm and welcoming Penthouse Suite for seven makes a fantastic Oregon Coast vacation home for your time at the beach!
One of eleven units in this charming community of vacation homes, the Penthouse Suite is ideal for two couples or a small family getaway. The open floor plan and corner views allow your group to soak up the panorama of the Pacific from the living, dining, and kitchen areas of this special suite.
The sofa and comfortable armchairs sit before a cozy wood-burning stove set on a brick hearth, providing a wonderful spot to settle in with a good book or a board game and watch a winter storm blow in. There's also a cable TV with VCR and DVD player for movie nights. When the weather's nice, you won't be able to resist stepping out to the deck to feel the ocean breezes and watch the sunset.
Enjoy private ocean-view dining at the four-person table, and even take in the scenery as you prepare meals in the full kitchen! All the usual appliances, pots and pans, and dinnerware are provided, so all you'll need to bring along are the groceries. There's a dishwasher for easy clean-up, and two charcoal grills out in the lovely picnic area if you feel like grilling hamburgers or steaks on a sunny day. The breakfast bar also makes it easy for a few guests to chat with the cook or help peel vegetables.
The suite has two bedrooms, each with queen beds, a sofabed, and a full bath with shower/tub combo. Up to six guests can sleep comfortably here. WiFi is provided, and the Penthouse Studio is a dog-friendly home; up to two dogs are allowed (though a nightly fee per dog and a minimum fee per stay will apply).
The whole family will love staying here at the Alpine Chalets! The beautiful sands of Beverly Beach below is accessible via a private trail, and stretches all the way to Yaquina Head. Newport's shopping and dining are only eight miles south, and there are a few options just half a mile away in Otter Rock - including an exceptionally scenic outpost of the popular Mo's seafood chain.
For peace, quiet, and unbelievable ocean views, look no further than this charming Otter Rock vacation rental!
Nice space. Plenty of room. I love the large deck with an ocean view and the view of the ocean from inside the suite. My new favorite of the chalets.
We loved the deck and view from the penthouse unit #2. The place was clean but out dated and we couldn't figure out how to get the cable working. The property was well maintained, property manager was very friendly and helpful. The path to the beach was well maintained and the beach was amazing and very private. We will definantly be coming back, very quaint and private.
Hands down, the view from this suite and deck was amazing! The exterior grounds of the property were very well maintained and the onsite manager was very courteous and helpful in recommending local places to visit during our stay. The extra large deck had a gate that was perfect for us to enjoy with our family dog without worry of him running off. The picnic area and private path to the beach were also great. Very convenient right on the property and not as long or steep as the other reviews we read made it out to be. The interior of this unit was clean however we reported a couple of stains on the carpet and that the décor is tired and old and could definitely use some updating. The good part is we spent the good majority of our time outside so the interior didn't bother us as much. The location of this property was also very convenient being close to Depoe Bay and Newport for supplies and groceries.
Quiet stay with only two other units filled in mid April. This is the only unit with an ocean view and not what a view!!! Basic accommodations as others have noted. We did not need the extra blankets we brought due to previous reviews. Several extra blankets and the heat in each room was warm enough set fairly low. We called due to finding a spider with an egg sack.... vacasa rep was there within an hour to take care of it. Thanks!!!
Looking at staying again in the fall.
The good: Views to the west are really great as is the condition of the parking lot and recently rebuilt deck. The trees around the structure make you feel like you're in a forest. Electric heating system worked well and kept us cozy an comfortable for our October stay. Each bedroom has its own thermostat as does the bathroom and living areas. Beach is a 3 or 4 minute walk down a beautiful thought somewhat steep hill. Beach is long and big so your kids or dog can run around for hours. Wi-fi was pretty good for 4 of 5 days but quit working on the 5th day. Property manager 'Lance' was there and gave us instructions for our stay. Bathroom has been upgraded; the toilet looked new and there is new tile around the tub. Bathroom was one of the better parts of the house. Kitchen was the next best. It is fairly roomy with nice counter space on one side, although the cabinets are original unstained/exposed wood and soiled somewhat from many years of use. The stairs and deck are in excellent condition. There are 15 stair steps from the ground level up to the deck and front door so be prepared to do some lifting of your food and luggage.
The ok: Bed in west bedroom (which is a nice large bedroom) is very firm but ok. Bed in east bedroom is even firmer but ok if you don't mind a really firm bed. Blinds over the windows in the living room are mostly intact, although you don't really need them anyway. Kitchen sink does NOT have a garbage disposal. The door on the west bedroom won't close, perhaps due to settling of the foundation. This home was probably build in the 60's or 70's so much of it is dated to that era, but, still mostly functional.
The bad: The fold-out sofa bed in the living room. It's worn-out and unsuitable for both sitting on it as a sofa and sleeping on the fold-out bed. In fact, it's so worn-out that an adult may get a back injury if sleeping on it. We brought 2 thick blankets, as suggested in a another review, which made it ok for our 7 and 10 year old boys. This unit is not configured to sleep 7 adults as listed in the description, it will do 6 at best, with two of the adults possibly in pain the next morning.
The dirty: There was visible dog hair on the carpet in places and it smelled like 'dog' in one place in the living room. The floor-mat by the sliding door was chuck- full of sand when we got there.
The broken: The cover on the dishwasher fell off when we got there, a light in the frig was burned-out, the light over the stove-top was burned-out, the switch on the lamp in the living room was broken, the blinds in front of the sliding glass door are about 50% gone and broken away and the sliding mechanism of the blinds over the sliding glass door was broken. Didn't matter much though since there is no way anyone can see inside the unit from the outside (since it is 15 steps above ground level).
The weird: The entire building structure is canted slightly south, meaning when you walk north inside the house you feel like you are walking up-hill. I used a level app on my phone and measured about a 1 degree slope from north to south. The slope didn't bother us too much though, it was just a little unusual.
We appreciate receiving such a thorough review. The property manager will go over this review with the owner so they can determine their course of action.
Beautiful doesn’t do it justice. Great location plenty to see within a short drive.
This isn't a high end rental as far as furnishings go, but it was clean and comfortable. You can't beat the location. It was a short walk to a beautiful beach (downhill) and had a fabulous view from the spacious deck.
This is an older home with some minor needs but the view is absolutely worth the stay.
The walk to to the beach was lovely, the beach itself? Incredible! Only a short walk to Devil's punchbowl. A lovely area to walk, hike or cycle but we also saw whales at Rodea Point, take a left out of the driveway and you'll eventually find it.
If you are looking for a quiet place to get away, with easy access to the beach (little steep, but fairly easy) this is a great place. The views are phenomenal and the deck is definitely a bonus. The cleaning team could do a little better on detailing, but the beds and kitchen and bathroom were fair emough. Overall we enjoyed our stay.
The Alpine Chalets Penthouse has a fantastic view and location, 1/2 mile walk down the beach to Devil's punchbowl where you always see whales, West Mo's for chowder and the winery tasting room. The newly rebuilt huge deck is fantastic for eating outside and relaxing. Only 10 minute drive to Chowder Bowl (world's best chowder) and Sweet Shop (world's best fudge) in Nye Beach. The caretaker, Lance was super friendly and helpful. The only downside is that the penthouse interior needs major updating. Besides that it was awesome! My family loved it.
1. The property manager, Lance, was very friendly and helpful. He was working so hard every day while we there to keep the property looking clean and manicured for the guests. He'd recently rebuilt the deck on "Penthouse Suite #2", and it looked awesome!
2. You have to walk down a short path to get to an area where you can barbecue and have bonfires, and the beach is a little farther down the path. Not super easy access but the view from the house makes you not care that much.
3. We have a geriatric dog, so the stairs were difficult to navigate with him, so that's something to think about if you have an old guy on board.
4. The house was well stocked with good pans, plenty of glasses and plates, etc. Terrible knives though, so bring your own. The fridge has filtered water and an icemaker.
5. No access to a washing machine and dryer, so for a week long stay, that was a big negative.
We stayed here for the eclipse, and enjoyed the great views and easy access to Newport and Depoe Bay as well as the short walk to the beach. The grounds are great and well maintained, and the property manager Lance was very welcoming. Unfortunately the unit itself was awful. The carpets are filthy and smelled strongly. The furniture and beds are worn out and so uncomfortable that we left a day early so we could get some sleep. The garbage for the entire complex is underneath the units deck, so depending on the wind the entire unit smelled of rotted food.
The setting of Alpine Chalets is beautiful. The grounds are very well kept and the path down to the beach is very convenient. The staff was very helpful and courteous. We actually had four of the units as we were celebrating a 50th anniversary and the accommodations were perfect for our group. We would definitely recommend the Alpine Chalets for a perfect getaway on the Oregon Coast.
We loved this house. The deck is beautiful and the living room has an incredible view. It was very conveniently located and the path to the beach was great. Most of the rooms were very hot though so it was hard to sleep unless you were in the west bedroom.
Spent a couple of nights here with the kids for the Summer. The views from the penthouse suite were perfect. It was a short walk down to the beach and the kids had a blast on the beach. The staff were very courteous and a shout out to Lance, the property manager onsite. Great guy! He was extremely friendly and briefed us no sooner we got there with tips about the area, the roads, the property and restrictions. Overall very enjoyable!
The location was amazing! You feel like you have your own private beach and are so close to the cool towns of Newport and Depoe Bay. The onsite manager Lance is very nice, accommodating and has lots of knowledge of the area. I would recommend this location to my best friends.
Thanks for an amazing stay!
Great views, decent location, comfortable.
All in all we enjoyed our stay and would absolutely stay again in the upper penthouse! It was clean, and the perfect size for our stay. The icemaker doesn’t work but there are a couple ice trays for your use. The bed on the West side of the house is awesome. Comfortable and soft sheets! The mattress on the opposite side could use replacing honestly. The pullout mattress is pretty bad, the springs are on the surface and poke into your back all night. A cheap foam sleeping pad would be all it needs to make it comfortable. Being that it’s the beach and typically cold out there, the 2 lightweight blankets provided didn’t quite cut it, I’d recommend bringing your own if you get chilly. Bring camp chairs, the pics show chairs on the deck but we found none anywhere in the house. This house absolutely does NOT sleep 7. It sleeps 6 so be aware of that if you have 7 people. No cot available for a 7th person. There is very limited parking, they say you have 2 spots but its actually one spot and you park 2 cars in it. There is additional parking down the road 500 feet but only enough for a couple cars. Make sure you are carpooling if you plan to stay here
Have stayed here numerous times over the years. This is not staying at the Ritz-Carlton, but it is not meant to be. This is staying in a cottage at one of the most beautiful places on the coast. It is convenient, clean and nostalgic. It is wonderful!
We spent new years weekend 2017 and had a really great time. very private and confortable.
our fifth year, look forward to #6
We love the location of Alpine Chalets. It is close to Newport, Depoe Bay and Lincoln City. The beach is an easy walk and the view is spectacular. Management was working on other units to update. We had a beautiful view of the ocean and will definitely be back.
The view from this place is amazing! If it wasn't for the view I would have never stayed the night here. I would have left. It needs cleaned and fixed up.
A deep clean is scheduled for this home. We are sorry to see that the cleanliness made the home unbearable for this guest - we will follow-up with housekeeping.
My wife and I are high school teachers and have been coming to this part of the coast at the end of Summer vacation for 20 years. Our previous place closed a few years back and we have been scrambling to find a place that offers everything we want. I am pleased to report, we have found it. If you are looking for a luxury stay, this is not the place for you. We have two Labradors so being pet friendly is huge to us. Easy access to the beach is a big plus. Just a great place to spend a week relaxing and recharging with my wife and dogs before the new school year. Very pleased and we will be back for yeas to come.
We very much enjoyed the 2 nights we spent in the Penthouse #2. It's simple and homey and conveniently located just up the hill from the beach. The Devil's Punchbowl and surrounding beach are amazing places to explore and Mo's Seafood right next to eat has delicious chowder and marionberry cobbler!
What a diamond in the rough. Our family of 5 was so comfortable here and the beach access and view were AMAZING! Close enough to town for quick trips for supplies but not so close we felt like we were in the thick of it. Beds were clean and comfy (hide a bed was, well a hide a bed) and over all lived in condition was about what I expected for the value. Not for the OCD clean freak tho. Plenty of dishes, fridge was clean and bathroom had plenty of towels. We made wonderful memories during our stay here and would definitely come back!
The location is absolutely amazing and beautiful. The privacy of the beach, campfire area and views were stunning with very little road noise and easy access to local amenities. The reviews were all very accurate. I saw comments on the ants in old reviews that issue should be resolved. There was also an old musty scent but candles helped with that. I would stay here again just for the view and privacy. If you don't mind older it is a great stay. The property manager was actively working on improving the property during our stay, it was good to see. There are both positives and negatives to this location.
The view was unsurpassed. The fireplace a nice touch. Roomy and comfy. The deck great for enjoying a sunset and our little dogs liked it as well.
Enjoy the view but don't expect light, hot water or anyone to help you if something isn't working.
We are very sorry that the hot water and some of the lights were out during this stay and that we were slow to help. We are actively hiring more employees in the field and on the phones so that we are easier to reach.
The location was good, but house smelled and had ants in kitchen.
We really appreciate you letting us know that you saw some ants during your stay. We have let our property manager know about them and that you noticed an odor so they can take care of both problems for our future guests. Thank you again for choosing Vacasa.
This was our third stay at the Alpine Chalets and second in the penthouse. For both penthouse visits, once we arrived we didn't start the cars again until it was time to leave. This visit the weather was atrocious the first day, so we watched the rain on the windows, got soaked on the beach, and ate too much. The second and third day were SPF 50 weather and we spent them on the beach. The penthouse suite is a delightful place to enjoy the beach, the views, and family. Highly recommended!
Thank you for sharing your review! We are so happy you had a great time and cant wait to have you back.
We were part of a very large family reunion...most of the family camped at the campgrounds. We were only a couple miles from the activities so our elderly parents could easily join in the fun, yet have a nice quiet retreat.
We absolutely loved the place! It's a bit rustic, but the views are unbeatable. We loved the private park and the private beach access. We also loved the fact that it was a haven from the tourist traps and chaos. We will definitely be staying here again! Such a wonderful experience. Also, it is incredibly dog friendly!
Quiet private condo well appointed and easy walk to the beach.
The view from the balcony/deck was simply amazing - we didn't want to do anything other than look at the ocean!
All the staff were so helpful as well, which made our stay there even more memorable.
The view is fantastic! Quaint place! Walk to beach is pebbled and not to steep going down! Coming back up that 100 ft is a bit hard. Love seeing the wild bunnies near the picnic Bon fire swing area!
The property has an incredible view of the ocean. We watched the sunrises and took many pictures. The path to the ocean was well maintained and had a good foot bed with gravel. The park on the property was a delight with swings, lots of greenery, picnic tables, grill, fire pit, etc.
The view is the best part of staying in the Penthouse. Every morning you wake up to a view that is hard to find in other locations. If the unit were clean and better cared for than it would make for a perfect place to stay. Be prepared if you plan to stay here. The conditions aren't for those who like clean and comfortable.
We apologize that the unit was not as clean as it should have been. We have high cleanliness standards and will work on achieving those in this home. We hope you enjoyed the fun location!
This was our second stay in two weeks so, needless to say, we found the place delightful. Quiet, secluded, gorgeous view. You couldn't ask for more! The Bald Eagles were amazing! We will be back again!
Thank you for your review! We are glad you love this Suite so much you keep coming back! We look forward to seeing you again soon. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
There were four of us staying in the Penthouse and it was cozy but spacious at the same time. The view was absolutely wonderful. We had three bald eagles visiting the snag behind our room every day. It was delightful. Very quiet, private path to the beach...you couldn't ask for more! And...it was very reasonable!
As soon as I walked into the Penthouse #2 I stopped to take a picture from the just inside the door. The view was more breathtaking than any of the pictures do it justice! Once my friend got there we took the path to the beach. This might be the only thing people should be concerned about. To get the great views, the path is a bit steep. Going down can be tough for some, and coming back up can be really tough. But I was just diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and not taking any medication for it yet so it was tough, but worth every bit of pain! The beach is not crowded, in fact there were only a handful of other people around. And the proximity to Depoe Bay (love to go to all the shops and eat at the Sea Hag!), and to Newport (if you need groceries) makes this a great location on the Oregon Coast. I can't recommend it enough!!
Thank you for this great review and recommendation! We are so happy that you had a great trip, and can't wait for you to visit Vacasa again.
We have enjoyed this property a number of times in the recent years. We are locals, but as a holiday treat, we have come here to have family time. Close by, yet still a getaway. The location is perfect! Remote and beautiful, but only a few minutes drive to shopping, and other amenities. The beach is spectacular!
It was great how close to the beach we were! Beautiful grounds, view. We had a great time!
I brought my family here and the view from the room was spectacular. There is a porch and table where you can eat and enjoy the ocean view. There is a private walkway to the beach, and you can have a little stretch of the ocean all to yourself. We enjoyed our stay, and would come back again.
Fourth time at this spot. Will come back again.
Thanks so much for visiting us again!
Our stay at the Alpine Chalets in Ottee Rock was fantastic! Our only regret was that it was not longer. Great unit, gorgeous view, clean and very comfortable. Totally relaxing. Highly recommended!
Thanks for sharing your 5 star review with us! We love the Alpine Chalets and are so pleased to see that you had a great time. Please come again!
The weather did not cooperate but it did not matter. The views are breathe taking and the beach is amazing. We wanted a place to just go and relax. In my opinion there is no better place. We will definitely be back again. If you book early enough this would a great place for a family reunion.
Our large clan has been gathering here for years!
We enjoyed our week on the Oregon Coast staying at the Alpine Chalets in Unit #2, the penthouse. As mentioned in another review, there were Bald Eagles nesting in the big dead pines just behind the house. We saw two eaglets on the last day in the nest before they flew off. We saw a news report that mentioned that they leave in late July, and the Mature Adults return in November.
We saw resident California Grey Whales nearly every day just outside the rocks, making thier way up and down the coast.
We spent time at Nye Beach shops and restaurants.
We had a fire nearly every night in the fire pit on the trail to the beach.
The units here are ageing, but are a great value based on the price you pay.
Wow! Its sounds like you had a great time staying in the Alpine Chalets. You really cant beat the location of these units. Thank you for this review and we look forward to seeing you again.
We really enjoyed our time here and will definitely be back. The onsite manager is super helpful and hospitable. We WILL be back!
We loved our stay. Everything was perfect. The views were great there were even nesting bald eagles in the trees above the house. Amazing
