Historic, waterfront, dog-friendly home w/ close beach access & private hot tub

Experience an amazing trip to the coast in this lovely Newport vacation rental! Featuring a private hot tub, oceanfront location, and space for two families to stay here comfortably, you will live in style when you visit.

Located on the north side of town, by the Agate Beach area, this home is just a block from easy beach access. Simply walk a block south and follow the nature trail to the sand, or you could drive a mile south to Agate Beach State Park and walk to the beach from there. You will also enjoy easy access to all the restaurants, shops, and activities in Newport with a quick drive a mile or two south through town.

This gorgeous home has an air of history (it was built in 1939), but is updated and has modern furnishings. With four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, up to eight guests will be very comfortable here. You are even welcome to bring up to two dogs with you, though an additional pet fee does apply.

Walk past the well-landscaped yard and garden, and step through the front door to find yourself in your temporary home. This main floor features a living room where you and your guests will love to sit and enjoy each other's company. Light a fire in the wood-burning fireplace to keep everyone extra cozy, and share stories in front of the flickering flames.

Out the window you can enjoy marvelous views of the ocean. With a flatscreen TV tucked into the corner, you can also watch cable, or bring along some movies and use the Blu-ray player. Select one of the provided board games and organize a family game night, or access the WiFi to stay connected during your vacation.

On the main level you will also find a full kitchen, equipped with all the necessary appliances and tools you may need to cook during your stay. Sit at the kitchen table and eat while gazing out the window at the ocean, or head into the attached dining room. With seating for eight, the dining room table is a perfect place to gather everyone and enjoy a nice meal together.

With a half-bathroom and a laundry room, the main floor of this three-level home is a great place for guests to spend time. Walk up the stairs to access the top level, where you will find three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed and gorgeous ocean views. The second bedroom has a double bed and windows that allow calming views of the garden area. The third upstairs bedroom has a double bed, and a full bathroom on this floor means nobody has to stumble downstairs to use the restroom.

Descend the staircases to arrive at the bottom level of this home. This floor has its own living space, kitchen, and another full bathroom, so this would be a great way for a couple to enjoy their own space while everyone else is upstairs.

The final bedroom, with a large bed, is located on this lower level. You will also find another laundry room, as well as a full kitchen equipped with a fridge, stove, dishwasher, and microwave, so you will have no trouble preparing meals here! A family room has plenty of seating, another flatscreen TV, and a sliding door with access to the patio and lower yard.

Sit on the patio or roam the yard area and breathe in the fresh air while listening to the waves crash on the nearby shore. When you're ready, hop in the private hot tub and let the warm, bubbling water melt away all your troubles!

With the beach so close, you will surely want to spend time walking on the sand, beachcombing, building sand castles, flying kites, and running with your dogs through the shallow surf. If you look north along the coast, you can see the iconic Yaquina Head Lighthouse, or you could take a refreshingly long walk about two miles south to reach Newport's Nye Beach area. Just across the street from this home is the Agate Beach Golf Course, so any golfers can go ahead and book an early-morning tee time since it will only take one minute to reach the clubhouse!

Other guests may enjoy driving to the south end of Newport and visiting the fantastic Oregon Coast Aquarium and the neighboring Hatfield Marine Science Center. Afterward, grab a coffee at a cafe, or stop at the Rogue Brewery for a refreshing drink. Newport has a huge variety of amazing restaurants to choose from, whether you hunger for the fabulous cinnamon rolls at La Maison Bakery, or some fresh clam chowder at the Chowder Bowl at Nye Beach.

Elsewhere in town you will find a cinema, lots of shopping opportunities, and miles of coastline to explore. With the ocean and Yaquina Bay accessible from the marina, crabbing, fishing, and boating area very popular activities. In the region you will also find amazing hiking and biking trails, as well as scenic ocean viewpoints all along Highway 101, so there are no shortage of ways to enjoy your visit to the area!

Stay at this comfortable and welcoming Central Oregon Coast vacation rental, and whether you spend your trip soaking in the hot tub, walking on the beach, or exploring the town, you will have a magnificent visit!

*Please note that the trail leading to the beach is a longer trail and the end of the trail leads out to a creek that can rise during the rainy stormy season. The guests should use caution in the fall and winter months.

Wonderful beach house for a family vacation. This historic house, views and incredible garden were truly a delight. My only suggestion is to add queen beds to all bedrooms, the master bed was great. We will certainly be back and I am looking forward to using the grand dining room!
Kevin F. Sep 2018
This house certainly makes you want to get out and see Newport and the Beaches. While the yard is beautiful and well kept, the inside is not and needs much more than the quick vacuuming and cleaning of towels and bedding that it gets.
This house has so much potential but the home furnishings resemble things you'd find on a weekend trip to a college students garage sale. I've stayed at other homes through Vacasa and while the furishings were simple, there was thought put into them to make it cohesive. That is lacking here.

Thx

Walking into the home just gives a sense of nostalgia. The home is sparsely furnished but guests have everything they need in essentials. The grounds are charming with little nooks and crannies to find solitude. We sat in the backyard not only enjoying the view but also appreciating the tree coverage to help limit the strong winds. Finding the Wade Way trail to the beach was an adventure for our family. The home has a history that I do wish was noted in the information packet. Very comfortable for my family.
Kathleen F. Jul 2018
This house was inspirational from the time first time we walked in the door. Old wooden floors, original doorknobs, gorgeous landscaping, classic older kitchen and fabulous views of the ocean. Plenty of room for our family of 6, with comfortable beds and plenty of amenities, including the hot tub! Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.
Tod W. Jul 2018
It's an amazing older estate with old growth spruce and rambling grounds. The dining area, living room, and grounds were great for playing games and hanging out. It's got that older style of very separate spaces and a small kitchen. The journey to the beach is interesting (get clear instructions), and the house has some quirks and deferred maintenance, but overall we loved it.
Katherine B. May 2018
Plenty of room for everyone - we had 4 couples in the house. Beautiful views but there is NOT close/easy beach access. Not a deal breaker for me but I couldn't tell from the description whether there was or not. There is a path to the beach but it's a good 10min and not good for little kids/mobility-impaired.
Really nice to have the hot tub! Location is easy to find and no road noise despite being close to the road.

The home was nice as pictured and it has a beautiful view of the beach. The “beach access” is actually a long walk through foresty area then through a neighbors yard. The trek down to the actual beach was very steep and once you get there a huge creek is blocking access to the beach. The creek was too deep to cross and there was no where close to actually get to the beach. This was very frustrating as it was one of the main reasons we booked the house. The home itself is nice though and we enjoyed the hot tub.
Manager Response:
We apologize if the trail had some flooded spots during this guest's stay. We have checked the trail on both rainy and dry days to confirm the information on the website is correct and did find it can be a little tricky when the path is wet. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused our guests.
Jeff B. Apr 2018
Large family with friends should stay here.
Lynn R. Mar 2018
Absolutely adored this home! It was wonderful for our family of 5, {2 adults, 3 kids}. The only thing I would change is that the downstairs bed be bigger, as our 2 year old still sleeps with us, "NOT the home owners fault"Lol! The home was very clean, kitchen and bathrooms were very well stocked, overall the entire home was VERY Accommodating and extremely cozy! Our family made the decision to make it a tradition to come back every year❤
AND THANK YOU VACASA FOR THE GOODY BAGS!!!

This is a nice older home. Nice wood work and big living room with a partial ocean view (partial because of trees, but nice). Be aware that if you have a large SUV such as a Suburban or Expedition, it will be to large to park in the garage. No garage door opener or code to the garage was provided, so if you do park in the garage, you will need to enter through the side door, then open the garage door from inside the garage. The property is beach front, but there isn't direct beach access from the property. Be prepared for a hike to get to the beach. It's easier to walk or drive to the Agate Beach Access area than to meander down the path and through people's back yards. As other reviews have mentioned, housekeeping could do a little better cleaning the kitchen. We had to change sheets on one bed when we arrived. Other than that, the other beds, bathrooms, and floors looked clean. We had a couple of house/grounds caretakers show up unannounced. Between the two, they were there on four of the seven days we stayed. We have no problem with maintenance work being done, but it would be nice to be contacted so we weren't surprised when a person was seen walking by the windows.
Manager Response:
The property manager has been retraining housekeeping so cleanliness issues will be less likely to pop up in the future. We will remind contracted workers to advise guests of when they will be at the home to take care of scheduled maintenance.

This is a great property with plenty of space for a larger group. The location is excellent; well within walking distance of the beach, driving distance of downtown Newport, and with easy access to several awesome local landmarks.
Robert P. Oct 2017
It's a very cool old house and a great yard. We enjoyed it immensely.
Katy K. Oct 2017
We enjoyed our brief stay at 10 NW 42nd in Newport! The house has a lot of character - which our family appreciates about older homes. The location, garden and view were spectacular and we successfully made our way down the footpath to explore the beach below. Our kids were disappointed that the hot tub was not functioning - as advertised - but we enjoyed a great game of monopoly by the fireplace instead!
Darin B. Aug 2017
It was beautiful but the trek to the beach is not for people with disabilities. It is overgrown and there are wild raspberries with thorns that scraped our legs. Other than the initial problems of cleanliness (dishes and bedding) and lack of sufficient linen and pillows and the broken dryer up stairs and very loud dryer downstairs that can't be run at night, it was an amazing experience! Vacasa had everything fixed by noon our second day and the rest of our stay was great. My favorite part was my view with a cup of coffee in the morning and a glass of wine at night! I wish the pool had been working while we were there.
Livia R. Jul 2017
We absolutely loved our stay! It was the perfect place for 2 adults and our 5 children. The kids had plenty of yard to explore and the views and outdoor areas were the perfect setting in which to sit back and relax. The beach access is a short one minute drive down the road (we found onsite access but it was a bit too difficult with the younger kids). We booked this house for the weekend to get married in private on the beach, and we couldn't have better memories of our special day. Thank you!
Andrée K. Jul 2017
Beautiful beach fromt view! Super cool and very spacious older house! Private amd relaxing!
Robert H. Jul 2017
No one let us know they were going to be doing maintenance while we were on the property. When we got back from the beach there was people at the house doing "inspections" again no one let us know. It was dirty
Manager Response:
We're sorry the guest wasn't informed ahead of time of the inspections. The owner dispatched a tech to repair the pool. Going forward, we will try to schedule pool maintenance around the guest's schedule to prevent any compromise of their privacy. Thank you.
Camille F. Jun 2017
This house was unique and adorable. I loved the space it offered. It was perfect for our family get together. My favorite part was swinging on the swing set watching the sun set over the ocean!
Tanya A. Oct 2016
Enjoyed our stay.. Wish the pool was available. Its a place with hidden gems
Walter S. Aug 2016
very nice location
Bradford V. Aug 2016
Though there were nice views out the windows and beautiful landscaping, there was dirt and filth along edges of rooms, especially in bathroom. Kitchen sink faucet needed replaced and was very difficult to use...was told a part was on "order" (c'mon, any hardware store would have had a faucet!). It would have been appropriate to TELL us about this before we discovered this problem. We thought we had no water. There was shower curtain mold, rusted drip rings on stove top, and a dirty refrigerator with broken drawers and front doors that would not stay closed. The whole fridge was supported by floor tiles at the bottom...what was that about? Outdoor grill was in bad shape and had not been cleaned. For the money we spent, we expected MUCH more!
Manager Response:
We apologize for the maintenance and cleanliness issues this guest experienced. Housekeeping will step up their work, and the Property Manager will address the maintenance issues. Thank you!
Vicki R. Jul 2016
We were 2 families staying for 4 nights. The house was big with 3 levels and very homey. The best part was the yard and the view. We saw whales from the house every day. There's a great badminton set that we used and loved. Also greatly enjoyed the fire pit and BBQ. So fabulous to sit outside and enjoy the sunset and tremendous view. The house could use a bit of TLC, but overall, it was a great place to stay in a fabulous location!! We would definitely return.
Jason F. Jul 2016
I was very happy with the Whispering Seas with a hot tub property, other than the condition of the house. But the condition of the house could be fixed with minor maintenance and a good cleaning. Great location and comfortable.
Jon & Nicole B. Jul 2016
We had a week and loved it, the location is far enough away from everything so you feel like you are away but Safeway, Fred Meyer & Walmart are less than 5 minutes away....with kids it makes life easier.
Samantha W. Jun 2016
This house is amazing, backyard has a spectacular view of the ocean! beautiful house and great views threw out the house. very close to town and secluded. we would stay here again!
Rebecca G. May 2016
Beautiful courtyard "grounds" and view of beach but NO beach access. Plenty of room inside and out.
Wayne E. Feb 2016
In spite of having an ocean view (technically on the ocean but beach access is almost a mile away) and houses on both sides, the front and back yards are both super private. Landscaping was spectacular which is not something we normally notice with vacation rentals.
Perry C. Oct 2015
This was a great place to stay close to the beach and with great views. We enjoyed the fire pit and the place was clean and peaceful. Great place to relax on vacation.
Marta T. Aug 2015
The house was very charming and roomy. The yard was like a park. I probably would not stay again because the beach access is difficult and I am not a fan of the dunes you have to traverse to get the the ocean. It was comfortable and reasonably clean. A little close to 101 so you hear the traffic in the front yard but you can't have everything. If not for the beach area I would definitely stay again.
Maya M. Jul 2015
our stay at Whispering Seas was nothing short of amazing. The location, the house, the yards were kept up extremely well. It was very clean and tidy, with the exception of the sheets we had to wash. But all in all , good. The photos don't do it justice, it's even more beautiful in person. It was everything they promised. Suoer nice hot tub. We hope to come back and stay again!!!
Janice E. Jul 2015
While this house had great ocean views and the grounds were incredibly beautiful, beach access was not good. It was not only far, but arduous.
Jason J. Jul 2015
Overall a great location. The house is typical for the coast and is obvious in the process of being modernized but definitely ok to stay at in its current condition. The beach access is a bit of walk but the beach itself is really nice at that location. I would stay here again.
Amanda (Mandy) T. Jun 2015
Our stay was wonderful! The house is beautiful and well-cared for. There are a few appliances that needs work/repair/replacement.
Stephanie Y. May 2015
The lawn n gardens were spectacular
The house quaint cute and very homey
