Enjoy ocean views when you stay at this modern and dog-friendly Waldport vacation rental.
This bright and inviting three-bedroom home is all on one level, so it's a great choice for guests who do not want to bother with stairs. Perfect for family trips to the Oregon Coast, this Waldport getaway is just blocks from easy beach access. You'll be just north of town in the desirable Bayshore Estates neighborhood, with miles of uncrowded, pristine sandy beach only a few minutes walk away.
A sleepy little fishing village, Waldport is nestled between Newport (15 miles) to the north and Yachats (11 miles) to the south, so you'll be perfectly situated for day trips to the Oregon Coast Aquarium or the state parks and natural sites to the south.
If you're traveling with a larger group, you will be happy to know this home is next door to Surf Cottage. If you need room for a larger group, combined, these two homes can sleep up to 10 guests.
When you are not out building sandcastles, this contemporary, Scandinavian-inspired retreat boasts tall, wood-beamed ceilings, a wood-burning stove, and gorgeous ocean views right from the living room. You'll also have a 46-inch TV, cable, and a Blu-ray player for cozy evenings in. And in winter, this is an ideal spot for storm-watching out the large picture windows... while you stay all warm and toasty inside!
The bright white kitchen is fully stocked with a refrigerator, stove-top/oven, dishwasher, microwave, and even gadgets like a coffee grinder, blender, and a slow cooker. In the evenings when you don't feel like heading out to one of Waldport's eateries, you'll have everything you'll need for a home-cooked meal.
On nice days, you'll want to have a seat on the spacious outdoor deck, sipping coffee or tea, and watching the waves roll in. There's a gas grill and outdoor furniture if you want to plan an al fresco meal during your stay. Of course, the large dining room table set up right near the wood stove makes a perfect setting for any meal as well.
When it's time to turn in, this Waldport vacation home's three bedrooms feature a king and two queen-size beds, as well as a futon, making this spot perfect for up to six guests. The master bedroom, in addition to having a spacious king-sized bed, also has a charming window seat with ocean views and its own TV. In addition, you can bring up to two dogs on vacation with you for a nightly pet fee.
Both bathrooms have a tub/shower combo, and your amenities here also include a washer and dryer, so there's no need to over-pack or try to keep your clothes clean while exploring the Central Oregon Coast. You'll also have WiFi and a collection of board games for use during your stay at this Scandia House in Bayshore Estates.
At just about 150 miles from Portland, Waldport offers peace and tranquility, surrounded by ocean-front state parks and the Siuslaw National Forest to the east. The Alsea River flows into the ocean right at Waldport and offers opportunities for fishing and boating, as well as crabbing right from the Alsea Bay Bridge. Restaurants include everything from pizzerias to seafood grills, with galleries and shops dotting the streets along downtown Waldport.
A stay at this Central Oregon vacation rental is perfect for couples traveling together, families, or anyone who wants to explore Waldport's beaches and state parks or just relax and watch the ocean from a cozy deck near the shore. A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

We had a wonderful getaway. House was very nice and clean. Very well furnished! Nice view of ocean.
It would have been nice to have a manual with instructions that shows how TV works and other things that one needs to know in an unfamiliar place.
Stephen H.Apr 2021
We have stayed in Scandia several times. We love the close ocean view and the accommodations. Very peaceful!
Andre B.Apr 2021
Words can not sufficiently describe the most amazing view of the ocean from this house with huge deck. Waking up and hearing and seeing the sea was the most soothing aspect of our recent weeklong vacation. This house has very comfortable beds and amazingly efficient wood burning fireplace although firewood is not supplied. The kitchen is well stocked with a brand new Weber gas BBQ making cooking a breeze. Finally our long bed truck and three bicycles fitted with ease in the garage and lots of off-street parking is available for extra vehicles. We hope to be back once we have saved up more money since nightly cost is quite steep but worth every penny.

Everything I needed in a great location.

David W.Oct 2020
Some descriptions and pictures reflected the place (vacation homes are not always so well represented in their advertisements). Clean, comfortable home with plenty of space. Loved it!
Terry T.Sep 2020
The house was the perfect size for us and dog friendly. The deck had a marvelous view and we were just minutes away from Waldport. The neighborhood was quiet and just a pleasant place to spend a few days. The house spotless and well stocked with everything we needed.
Charlotte H.Aug 2020
The home was very clean, had extra towels and everything I needed in the kitchen to cook. Very satisfied with the place.
Timothy D.Jul 2020
The view from the deck and living areas really is nice, and we appreciated how very clean and up to date everything is. Beds were comfortable and firm, great showers, nothing broken or in disrepair other than the screen in the south-facing guest BR window was torn and separated from the frame. An easy fix that I’m sure was just overlooked. The only minor complaint was that all bedrooms were very light in the morning, even with shades drawn. Bring an eye mask if that bothers you. Beach is about 2-3 blocks away, very very nice sand and waves. Lots of room on the beach to spread out and we had a fire with s’mores the last night. Backyard has lots of little prickers so don’t walk around without shoes. The picnic table and deck was nice and smooth, no worries about splinters. All in all a great spot well-taken care of and we’d book it again. Very quiet neighborhood and relaxing stay. P.s. the beach club with pool etc. is closed due to Covid.
Kimberly A.Jul 2020
You have a great view of the ocean and only a 5 minute walk to the beach. My bedroom was in the front and the bed was very comfortable and I could still hear the ocean.
Sabrina J.Jun 2020
Home was very comfortable and well thought out. Furniture was comfy and house was well stocked with everything we needed. Pull out couch and futon in the family room was very handy and separate from the main living area. Better ocean view than we were anticipating, great value!
Maralyn T.May 2020
The view from the back deck, all ocean and waves. It rained a lot which was welcomed. We just had a great time...
Brad S.Mar 2020
The house was clean and comfortable. However, the back yard had stickers, thorns in the grass, so I could not walk my dog there.
We apologize for the grass in the backyard. We will be sure to address this with our local staff. We appreciate you feedback.
Steven P.Feb 2020
Well appointed kitchen, dog friendly, garage clean and tidy
Antoinette A.Oct 2019
Great house. Lots of light, great view and well stocked kitchen. What more could four crazy quilters ask for?
Joseph H.Aug 2019
Nicole G.Jul 2019
The house had plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 kids and had everything that we needed for our stay.
John M.Jul 2019
Was clean and had very good ocean view. Front bedroom bed too soft.
Hi John, thank you for sharing your review with us. We apologize for any issues you experienced during your stay. We are pleased to announce that the homeowners have since replaced the mattress in the front bedroom. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we hope to host you again in the future!
Stephen H.Jul 2019
Unobstructed view, layout of the home.
Annie R.Jun 2019
Perfect beach house for our young family.
Tim M.May 2019
The house worked great for us. Are second time there and we'll probably be back.
Greta P.May 2019
The house was very spacious and located in a quiet neighborhood. All the essentials were provided and it is in a convenient location. Would definitely go back!
Judy C.May 2019
table perfect for 6 to play cards
Teresa P.Apr 2019
Felt like home. Very relaxing
Robin D.Apr 2019
We loved this house for our family coast get away. It has nice views, great afternoon sun, is very comfortable and Clean, and an easy walk to the beach. We would stay again.
Greg S.Mar 2019
Even better than 3 years ago when we came for Spring Break. Great views, easy walk to the beach and a very functional home. It was very clean and we felt like we were at home.
Thanks for a great time.
Patti J.Jan 2019
This is our second year booking a long weekend at Scandinavia house. Great location, very well kept and clean with a beautiful ocean view and easy beach access!
Kitchen is well accommodated, even new scrubber and soaps. However, the oven was broken and no saran or foil wrap for use. We did make due and worth it for all the other amenities.
We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Our local maintenance team has fixed the oven and it is now in good working order. We hope to host you again in the future!
Evan H.Oct 2018
This vacation home was wonderful! It had everything we needed, was clean and comfortable, and had an awesome view! Would highly recommend it for anyone looking to rent a vacation home in Waldport.
Laura H.Oct 2018
What a great place. Well designed home for 6 people. Beautiful view of the ocean. Well stocked and clean. We already booked for next year. You will not be disappointed.
Caryl K.Sep 2018
This house has a great view of the ocean. We were very lucky to have two gorgeous days on the beach and sitting on the deck was lovely. All in all the house was comfortable and fit our needs.
Sue F.Sep 2018
I would like to give this house a 4.5 star rating. It fit all our requirements: pet friendly, ocean view, king size bed, single story, garage parking & BBQ. The only thing missing was the garage door opener and matches for the fireplace. The paper towels were very cheap and ripped down the middle when trying to tear off a sheet. I almost locked myself out - very scary. The door knobs were all set to automatically locked and there was only one key which if you leave in the lockbox will keep you from getting locked out. There is a huge stack of wood for the fireplace. The best thing about this house is the 180 degree view of the beach. It is quite possibly the best beach view in Waldport! The neighborhood is quite and half way between Bayshore and Sandpiper Village which we love.
We’re excited the guests enjoyed the view and the home’s amenities. Our local manager will work towards providing a garage door opener and a lighter will be left for the fireplace. Thank you.
Susan P.Sep 2018

Betsy P.Sep 2018
I almost hate to give this home a good review, because I'd love for it to be available anytime I want to go again... But we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is gorgeous, and very comfortable.
Kitchen - well stocked - the only thing I didn't find was a pie plate, and it was probably my fault. Everything else you could need was there - from plenty of dishes (including some for little ones - which we didn't need) to a crock pot; from a glass bread baking dish to a soup ladle.
Master bedroom - the bed was comfortable, and you could lie in bed and look at the ocean - what more could you want? The bathroom had two sinks, a tub/shower, and a toilet. There was space to hang clothes and a dresser as well.
Other bedrooms - on the smaller side, but fully functional and plenty of linens and comfort.
Second bathroom - bigger than the master, and nice.
Living room - comfortable seating and TV. This room is on the non-ocean side, but very comfortable.
Sitting room - lovely space to sit and read and look at the ocean. Very comfortable.
Dinning room - seating for 6. Plenty of room to do a puzzle and also have space for eating.
Deck - lovely space with seating and a large picnic table. We ate most of our meals outdoors, and could see and listen to the ocean.
We loved our stay, and we really hope to be able to go back soon!!!
Holly R.Aug 2018
We enjoyed a wonderful two day stay at this comfortable and homey vacation rental. The sheets were clean, the kitchen had plenty of space, the beds were comfy and it has a good amount of games/puzzles to keep the kids entertained inside. The beach is a very quick drive away or a short walk through a VERY quiet neighborhood. The house is in a pretty good location and not too far from Newport. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a quiet retreat to come back to after a long day out and about. The only downside of our trip to the coast was all the fog!! Can't help that though!
Mary H.Jul 2018
Great location with access to the beach and attractions up and down the coast. Comfortable, well appointed home.
Angelina L.Jul 2018
Loved this home. Clean, beautiful and comfortable! We will definitely book this home again!
Scott R.Jun 2018
We had such a wonderful time at this house, and we are already planning on coming back next year. There was plenty of room for everyone in our family to spread out and no one felt like they were cramped. The patio and view of the ocean was absolutely fabulous, we spent every evening out enjoying a cold beverage while the kids played. We never personally watched the TV, although it was nice for the six and four year old to be able to watch a movie in the second living room. I really like how there was cleaner left to use, a vacuum and a broom in case you needed to clean up a mess. Also, the closet full of games, toys, and books was so nice! Sadly we didn't use the pool, as we drug our feet checking it out, and it wasn't really in our budget to purchase a pass since half of our vacation was over. The prices have raised to $8 a day per person (it doesn't matter if you're swimming or not), $30 for a one-day pass for a family of five, or $75 for a 6-day pass for a family of five. Please know that renters swimming hours are 11-5. Another HUGE bonus in this house is that they have an attached garage for you to use! SO easy to just back up, unload straight through the garage, then park your car in a nice, safe, clean area.
Dawn T.Jun 2018
Great open plan house that was full of light and very clean and comfortable. Beds were comfortable. Loved the view and the sound of the ocean from 2 of the bedrooms and the kitchen/dining/living room. We were there mid week and the neighborhood was very quite. Short 4 block stroll to the beach. Beach not as nice as the beaches closer to Yachats, but great for a quick walk with the dogs. I agree with some other reviews about the seating in the living room off the kitchen. The swivel cane chairs need replacing as they were old and not comfortable. Only negative (not a big one) was that the barbecue was dirty and hadn’t been cleaned since last use. Tool to clean the barbecue was also gross so needs replacing. Bring staples like aluminum foil, ziplock bags, etc. as none are provided. Overall a great house that we were very happy with.
We appreciate these suggestions from our guest. We have passed the comments along to the owner and cleaned out the BBQ. Thank you!
Merrill H.Apr 2018
Nice clean house with great views.
Julie D.Apr 2018
We traveled to the coast from Eastern Oregon. This house was very clean and worked out nicely for our trip. We would stay here again.
Patricia J.Mar 2018
Clean, great location, nice neighborhood, dog friendly, great view!
Pati W.Jan 2018
Cute little town. Great house, cozy, comfy. Lots of extras has everything you need for your stay. Fun stuff to keep everyone busy. Nice ocean view and awesome deck to enjoy it. Our stay was fantastic and we will be back. Thank you Vacasa.
Stacey M.Jan 2018
Very comfortable home. Everything you need in the kitchen and the garage was big enough for our boat. Will stay again!!
Susan S.Oct 2017
We didn't stay there.
Rosemarie R.Oct 2017
The place was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. My recommendation is that furnishings (primarily living room and family) be updated and comfortable stable seats be placed in the house. Vacasa was very helpful with check-in and check out. I don't see what VRBO did to require a payment, though..
Steven H.Sep 2017
Great home layout with a bedroom towards the front of the house and place to watch televsion. Everything is set up just fine. We were all very pleased with this home and would come back again.
Sara K.Aug 2017
The house was great! It was clean, comfortable, and outfitted with everything we needed to cook, relax, and enjoy our stay. The house is bigger than it appeared in the photos, and our family of four had plenty of room to stretch out. The view of the water is beautiful, and the ocean sounds lulled us to sleep at night. A sweet find in a quiet neighborhood!
Danielle H.Aug 2017
Our family enjoyed this beach rental. It was very roomy for the six of us. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes. The dishwasher door is a little tricky. It must be closed just so or it falls open. Lots of games puzzles and books for entertaining.
Dale R G.Jul 2017
Really enjoyed our stay the view was amazing and we had lots of room to move around and about everything we needed for home cooked meals and barbecueing as well!
Donna S.Jul 2017
We really enjoyed our four days in this Waldport beach home. Quiet neighborhood, short walk to the beach, nice deck to view the sunset. Everything we needed was provided. Plenty of towels, essentials, and even board games! We will definitely be back. Thank you so much for the wonderful vacation.
Merritt C.Jul 2017
Nice, comfortable home with everything you need. Beds, linens, towels are all good quality and well stocked. Would definitely stay there again.
Mary H.Jul 2017
This is the third time we have rented this particular house. We love the quiet streets and close access to the beach. Although this is not beach front property, we have the most glorious view of the ocean from the lovely outside deck. And the beach is within walking distance or a short drive. Nearby Newport has many fun places to eat and shop. We had 6 adults on this trip and the house accommodated all of us comfortably. We will be back for a fourth time, guaranteed!
Garry B.Jul 2017
Clean, comfortable beds, bright & happy house with a great view of the ocean!
Just a short walk to Beach or Bay.
Laid back atmosphere by close to shopping & awesome Oregon experiences!
Cheryl W.Jun 2017
We loved it, we had everything there we needed!
Michael H.Jun 2017
Kiersten S.Apr 2017
Loved this property! Kid and animal friendly, had almost every amenity you could want! Would definitely stay again.
Kay M.Mar 2017
We had a great time. Had a difficult time locating the house at first due to the initial instructions given the week before our trip. The instructions were corrected later. Other than that it was awesome. The three bedrooms for us really made the difference. Rained every day, but we were happy to stay in when we needed to. Will definitely use VACASA again.
Chris K.Feb 2017
The house is fantastic with climate control for each room which is great! The local beach at low tide is incredible as the tide recedes for hundreds of feet making for a spectacular view!
Barbara H.Feb 2017
The house was very nice--modern, clean, spacious with a view of the ocean.
Shelly C.Jan 2017
We could not have been happier with our stay at the Scandia House. We can't wait to visit again.
Kevin R.Dec 2016
This was a home set up wonderfully for quick getaway, the furnishings were nice and what a view
Chris W.Nov 2016
A wonderful and well kept home, in a great OR coast beach community. Have stayed at the Scandia House several times in the past, and prior to it being under Vacasa management; the home seems to have maintained its quality, if not gotten better while under the watch of Vacasa.
Colleen R H.Sep 2016
The house is beautiful and you can see & hear the ocean from most rooms. Loved it!
Mary T.Sep 2016
Very clean and comfortable.
Marilyn B.Sep 2016
We first stayed at Scandia when a friend and former colleague still owned the house. We loved the location as it affords about a 160º degree of the coast (when it's not foggy). After her death, her children sold the house, so we were doubly said to lose a good friend and a wonderful rental. Later, as we drove through Bayshore checking on available rentals, we found that this wonderful house, after having a third bedroom and a second bathroom added, was once again a rental. Wonderful. Returning here is almost like going home again. Certainly we have sweet memories of our late friend and her generosity in letting us visit here,
Darlene D.Jul 2016
It is a very nice house we would recommend this house to are friends ,and stay there agian
Derek L.Jul 2016
Great location, quiet surroundings, plenty to do. The house was very clean and comfortable with a great view. It is about a 3 block walk to the beach which we did not mind the extra exercise.
Jessie E.Jul 2016
Clean house with a nice layout. No fence around yard for a dog but does have a fence in porch.
Teresa C.Jun 2016
The view from the deck is beautiful. We were able to sit on the patio and enjoy the sunset. The house was spotless and had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation.
Carol R.Jun 2016
We enjoyed our stay immensely. It was the perfect location for the view and sounds of the ocean. The house was the perfect size for our family. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach daily. I very much liked being able to sit outside with my coffee every morning and evening. I would highly recommend this property.
Debra S.May 2016
A convenient location with a great view from the deck. We really enjoyed our stay!
Susan B.May 2016
Our party included two seniors and adult children. The house, although not new, was spotless and everything worked perfectly. It was extremely easy for the seniors to move in with only two steps at the entrance. There were far more cooking supplies than I expected, even a "help yourself" shelf of spices, tea, and coffee. The view of the beach from the back deck was great/ The beach itself was a short walk down to an uncrowded, flat, sandy beach. We all agreed that it was a perfect location and the house fit our needs perfectly.
Dayna R.Apr 2016
Steven & Kasha S.Mar 2016
We have stayed in a good 20 home rentals. This was clean, well stocked with seasonings to oil to syrup. Amazing views from all windows on south side of the house. Was able to view the sunset! Keep the prices low and you will have more renters. Ps- both beds on south side were great for comfort.
Dean M.Mar 2016
While not on the beach, there is a good view of the ocean. We were able to enjoy a sunset. Also had wind, & rain. We were always very comfortable. There are all the comforts of home.
Kathy C.Nov 2015
Waldport is a fabulous little beach town on the central OR coast, close to Newport, Yachats, and Lincoln City. When going with family, we prefer renting a house rather than several hotel rooms, as it affords more opportunity to have meals together and engage in conversation. (Also, it can be less expensive :).
Scandia House in Waldport was a great choice for our Thanksgiving weekend with our family! We enjoyed the views, beach access, and homey feel of the property!
Carol R.Sep 2015
This home is an awesome place to stay! I definitely recommend it for couples, families, reunion groups, for showers, to an all guys' get-away. It's got a great floor plan & flow, and could easily accommodate subgroups. The deck is also substantial & there's a large back yard. It comes fully equipped & I can't think of anything else that could improve the experience at Scandia. Oh, and then there are the views!
Arthur B.Sep 2015
We have stayed in Scandia House many times, pre-dating the current owner. We were very happy to learn that the house remains a rental, so try to come once a year or more often. Though the house is not right on the water, the deck offers a nearly 180Âº view of the ocean. And when the weather cooperates, and it did for us, one can sit out on the deck much of the afternoon. Whenever we are there, we remember fondly the previous owner, who was a friend and former teaching colleague. Though she has died, we always talk about her and her generosity in letting us rent her home. We now have many new memories, but she remains a part of them.
Michele D.Jun 2015
Although this house is not on the beach, it is a short walk to the beach, with a great view from the balcony, family room and two of the bedrooms. We were very happy with the condition of the house, it was clean, open, lots of seating. The TV is in the living room, which was nice, and gave an extra sitting area. Waldport is small, but everything that you could need is in the town. Yachats is a short drive and had great restaurants, and Newport is a short drive in the other direction. We never needed to use the stove, but it was nice to know it was there. I can't imagine finding a better house for the price.
There a couple of tips for anyone thinking of staying there. The WiFi is not very strong- don't expect to stream any videos especially if there are multiple devices going. But Verizon reception was good everywhere in the house. Two of the bedrooms didn't have a dresser, but had a big closet. And although there is soap, shampoo and conditioner included, I wouldn't count on using it. It was very watery. Just plan on bringing your own. Everything else that was included was great, and there was plenty- towels, blankets, bedding, plates, cups, silverware.
Overall a killer value and I would definitely stay there again.
David C.Jun 2015
Our family loved this location halfway between Newport and Florence. Great home and neighborhood. Would definitely love to stay here again. The house is very nice and well-maintained and suited our needs perfectly. One minor suggestion for the homeowners - it would have been helpful to have a long handled turner for the grill provided.
Amy H.Jun 2015
I was happy and surprised when I found this pet-friendly listing for $99/night! The house is in a neighborhood we've rented from before. There's lots of beach, easy access, views from most of the house, and an easy stroll to the sand. The kitchen was well stocked and the house also had plenty of linens, towels, places to hang. Our bed was also very comfortable which is a bonus since my husband has back problems. It's really a great place to stay! My only suggestion for this owners of the house would be to not skimp on paper goods and shampoo/conditioner/soap. I appreciate that you're offering a low priced rental but I'd rather have you raise your price $10 a month and offer products that aren't one-ply. Also, I had to pump the "shampoo" directly onto my head in an effort to see any lather... the product was pretty much water. I ended up using 4x the amount of "product" just trying to get it to work as I would have used if it had been a real shampoo. Same thing with the "body wash" which had the consistency of water... Walmart, bulk sizes... will last a long time. Other than that, I'd say it was a great rental!
We apologize that the shampoo and body wash products were not properly mixed before your stay; we will work on making sure the proportions are correct before preparing the product. We are glad to see that you enjoyed the home and hope you enjoyed being part of the Bayshore Beach Club community. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
Gary R.Jun 2015
The house was VERY clean. The kitchen had everything that was needed, we had want for nothing. A 5 star stay and if we are in the area again I would stay again without hesitation.
We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and thanks so much for the valuable feedback. Our housekeeping staff takes great pride in ensuring that our homes are clean, and we are pleased to hear that the kitchen suited your needs. We hope to see you again soon!
Joanne H.Apr 2015
"Beautiful Home"! very clean and quiet surroundings.( Everything was as presented on the web site). We were very satisfied...and the only suggestions we could offer would be the home could have used a night light in the entrance hall and small garbage can in bedrooms.
"Thank You" for sharing your Home with us! Joanne
Thank you for the review! We are so glad to hear that you had an excellent stay and enjoyed this peaceful home and lovely Waldport area! Thank you also for the suggestions. The local manager has been notified and will look into getting those items added. We hope you can visit again soon!
Dean P.Mar 2015
The property was very clean and had a well stocked kitchen and games and toys for the entire family The view from the deck is awesome and access to the beach is not that difficult.
Ed Z.Mar 2015
Although we weren't right on the beach, the home was elevated enough for us to have a great panoramic view, north to south, of the whole ocean. A very nice deck if you wanted to sit out on the back porch and look at the ocean. The house was very roomy, with a nice family room-kitchen combination, plus a separate living room with a TV and video facility. Very clean bathrooms, and nice big beds. I do wish that the shower curtains had better fasteners on the top, the hooks that currently hold up the curtain had a tendency to come off when I closed the curtain. Need to have a sponge, or washcloth in the kitchen for dish washing. Overall, very nice, well kept home.
