Luxurious, dog-friendly home with private hot tub in beautiful Bella Beach

Staying in this adorable Lincoln Beach vacation rental is like - well, a walk on the beach: pristine, playful, and charming, this brightly-lit beach townhome offers luxuries that brings guests a sense of tranquility, plus amazing amenities like easy beach access and a private hot tub for even more relaxation!

Located just 15 minutes from Lincoln City for dining and shopping, this charming three-bedroom, three and a half-bathroom getway resides in a quiet residential neighborhood, just far enough away for peace and quiet without losing crucial distance to beach town fun.

The first thing guests will notice is the light: this home is made up of windows upon windows in order to bring in the most light possible, creating a sense of freshness to complement the whimsical decor, butter-yellow walls, and stylish furnishings. The living space is open, perfect for socializing in all sorts of ways: whether watching a movie on the DVD/VHS player (there's a whole movie library for you to pick from) or cable on the flatscreen in the corner, or playing one of the supplied board games on the floral rug in front of the gas fireplace, there's plenty of room for up to nine guests to fully enjoy each others company. Play mood music on the stereo, or download your favorite podcast on your personal device via WiFi. Pick a book from the library to read out on the deck or in the bubbling hot tub on the first-floor patio.

No need to fret if the hunger pangs begin - the open floor plan leads straight back to the kitchen. Well-organized and made for high-volume traffic flow, this lovely kitchen is a chef's dream. Forest green granite countertops stand out strongly against the stainless steel appliances and blonde-wood cabinets. Set out appetizers on the hard-wood island or at the four-top breakfast bar, and eat meals around the six-top dining table. Feel like cooking out? Check out the charcoal grill in the back, or simply take a cocktail to the second-floor balcony for a nice breeze and pretty views.

Each of the three-bedrooms has their own bathroom, a queen bed, and a personalized sense of style. Upstairs on the very top floor is a room with two walls of windows, an antique dresser, and sage-green walls to calm the brightness. The full bathroom has a shower/tub combo; with epic views and a private TV, this is a fabulous hide-away. You'll find a twin bed with three dresser drawers in a perfect spot for a young member of the group.

The second bedroom is done in the same yellow as the living room, with a private TV and a large walk-in shower. This room also has ample natural light, perfect for snoozing mid-afternoon after a walk on the beach after breakfast!

The third bedroom is a charming getaway for a young adult or a younger couple to enjoy, with lavender walls and matching bedding, a full bathroom with a walk-in shower, and a private TV. Plus a sofa bed, this home can sleep up to eight adults comfortably, and nine guests total. Can't stand to leave you furry friends behind? Up to three dogs are welcomed in this home for an additional nightly fee.

So you've settled in and the sun is shining: what now? Walk a few blocks to the beach for sandcastle building, sunbathing, chasing waves, perhaps surfing or boogie boarding. Drive just 10 minutes to the nearby Salishan Spa and Golf Resort for a massage, some tee-time, perhaps a poke around Siletz Bay for windsurfing or stand-up paddle boarding. Don't feel like driving? There are two adult bikes in the garage at your disposal. Drive to Lincoln City for fun food and beachy shopping, art galleries, and boat rentals. Or stay at home and enjoy this Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental from the comfort of your front porch with your shades on and your feet up! Sit back and relax - the Dolce Vita ("sweet life") is yours.

Great house and location. We had six of us staying here over the long Thanksgiving weekend. Very clean and well equipped. Did not notice any dog smells or hair. A short walk to the beach. Only one issue was with the grill. The pic of the grill at the house is not accurate. This house has gas grill (not a Weber charcoal as pictured) and only one side of the grills works.
Sergio P. Oct 2018
Place was awesome!!!!
Carol E. Oct 2018
The house was clean and did sleep 6 the draw back was all the stairs only one bedroom on botton level that has the hot tub right outside so was hard to get use to the pump sounds..and then living room and kitchen on a level then 2 bedrooms up another level........
Melissa B. Sep 2018
We loved our 3 night stay at Dolce Vida! There was plenty of space for everyone and the 3 1/2 baths came in handy with our large family. Our only complaint was that there was a lot of dog hair in the carpets. Overall a very good experience we would love to stay again.
Manager response:
We have done a thorough cleaning for pet hair, and we have a deep clean scheduled in the near future that should help as well. Thank you!
Amber P. Sep 2018
3 bedrooms each with its own bathroom made this family vacation house perfect for our family because we all had our own space. Nice to have a small ocean view and the hot tub was very enjoyable.
Tracy G. Aug 2018
Property has many cleanliness issues! Door sweep needed on back deck kitchen door. Master tub did not drain and toilet not functioning properly! Hot tub very loud when cycling on/off during night if you sleep in 1st floor bedroom. Would not recommend until issues resolved and house up to par.
Manager response:
We apologize for any issues this guest encountered while staying with us. The tub drain is now draining, the toilet handle has been tightened, and we have installed a sweep on the kitchen door leading to the deck. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about the hot tub noise. We hope to have the opportunity to impress these guests in the future!
Kay M. Aug 2018
Mainly being with family & friend.....everyone had a bedroom/bath. So close to beach of which we had awsome weather. Great food/casino in town. Hot tub was great after late night.
Rosalind P. Aug 2018
We had a great stay at Dolce Vita. The place was clean and had a great layout for everyone to spread out and relax. The kitchen was well stocked with the pots and pans - we loved being able to cook our own meals. The beach is a short walk away - you can walk for miles, and even hear the beach waves from the house. Thanks for a great stay!
Kevin C. Jul 2018
Love that there is an adjoining bathroom for each bedroom, as well as the half bath on the main living level. Very clean and quiet. Only down side is the long, steep stairs, not good for small children, had to buy two child gates to keep one year old on main level. Great beach! Hope to come back next year!!
Christopher W. Jul 2018
Great place. Clean and really fun!
Robert B. Jun 2018
Wonderful size for (2) adult couples and a Boston Terrier; great Beach access; well located to activities ad sites we wanted; garage for two cars; high ceilIngs and east and west decks at Living/Dining/Kitchen level; (2) showers without tub component; that the unit was mostly clean enough; and good supply of pots, pans, utensils etc. for meaningful cooking.
Tory W. Jun 2018
Awesome house, very open and close walk to the beach. Only a few select down falls. The jets on the hot tub tripped out and didn't work, garbage disposal tripped out, but would reset, and the butcher block counter top was not sealed. Was an awesome view of the beach from the second balcony and nice quiet neighborhood.
Manager response:
We have sealed the butcher block, the garbage disposal is working as it should, and the hot tub jets are scheduled for repair before the end of June. Thank you!
Amanda B. Apr 2018
Great house. Just a lot of stairs
Ty H. Apr 2018
Loved the quiet little community and easy access to the uncrowded beach. Home was very comfortable and cozy for our stay. The fireplace and hot tub were high points for us. Hope we can stay longer next time.
Darlene L. Apr 2018
The home was great, lots of stairs. The weather was good for the coast and we enjoyed the short walk to the ocean.
Shawn B. Dec 2017
Had everything we needed close walk to the beach well taken care of
Marvin E. Aug 2017
this is a nice place to stay on the Oregon coast. Quiet setting, easy walk to the beach and a good mix of dining and entertainment options close by
James H. Aug 2017
Close by the beach hot tub very nice two places to set outside
John M. Jul 2017
It appears only some of the Jets were functional.
Elizabeth B. Jun 2017
We loved our stay at Dolce Vita! It was clean, and had all the amenities we were looking for. The en-suite bathrooms were such a great feature, each room felt very private. This home was very comfortable, and we loved hanging out on the porch with beautiful sea views. I highly recommend staying here!
Christina B. Jun 2017
This is our 2nd time staying in this home, and we'll likely keep coming back to it for years to come. The location is excellent. We love the cafe that's at the entrance to this neighborhood, and recently discovered Tidal Raves restaurant in nearby Depoe Bay and it was phenomenal with a breathtaking view as we ate dinner. The furnishings are perfect. My parents slept in the bigger room which has a peekaboo view of the Pacific Ocean. My daughter and I slept in the other upstairs room which conveniently has 2 beds. My teenage son slept in the downstairs bedroom and my youngest son slept on the pull out couch in the living room. There are many windows and we enjoyed opening them and feeling the fresh air and hearing the ocean. Unfortunately the beach access was blocked off this week due to some storm damage, but it really wasn't much of an inconvenience as there are many other nearby locations to access the beach. The top part of one of the blinds (valance) was falling off in both the downstairs bedroom and the upstairs bedroom (the room with 2 beds). Also, the battery needs to be changed in the downstairs bedroom smoke detector. I only mention this so it can be attended to. Our stay here was lovely and we'll be back again!

We took a family trip to Oregon this year. Ended up have too many people so my brothers family and mine rented this place for the week. It was a great price and located just a little walk to the rest or the family. The house was beautiful and it was close to so many things. The only issue we had was the beach access was close so there was an alternative but it was not in the best shape either. Other than that I loved it and would do it again.
Jennifer D. May 2017
4 colleagues stayed in this rental for a professional meeting held at sold out Salishan. We were able to bring 3 dogs, check in early and check out late (for a fee). This rental was perfect for our group!
Julianne P. Mar 2017
Our son and his fiance, our daughter, and my husband and I stayed for a week at this nice home. The house is well set up for a group of adults wanting separate sleeping quarters. Each bedroom has a bath of its own and there's a half bath/laundry on the main as well. The hot tub was a nice luxury. The beds were good, though the mattress on the lower level has seen better days. We kept rolling into each other. We loved the peek-a-boo ocean view and the short walk to the beach, even though the weather didn't cooperate with long walks on the sand. Tall counters in the kitchen (and baths) made it a little hard for some of us to reach the upper cabinets, but that's what sons are for, right? Nice to have the garage to park in, though it was barely deep enough for our car. I would have loved to be able to recycle bottles, cans, etc. at the house rather than having to take them to the recycle center in Lincoln City. We had some trouble with the key box and had to call customer support. There was a pretty significant delay in their response that could have been worse than it was. Still, we would definitely stay here again.
Kelly B. Feb 2017
This house was furnished with everything comfortable! It had all the kitchenware and appliances needed to make our trip flow smoothly. The only thing I didn't like was the lack of privacy. These are townhouses (very large). I would have liked to be a little closer to the ocean as well. We ended up booking last minute on a very busy weekend so settled for what was available.
Overall I am glad we ended up here!
Victor O. Feb 2017
The VACASA team is a stellar group! I will recommend them to all our friends over the next year! We will be back next spring!
Lissa O. Dec 2016
This home has it all. Quiet community in the dead of winter, wonderful heating system that kept us cozy and well appointed.
Toni W. Dec 2016
The house was perfect for our needs with all the different ages in the family. Loved the hot tub.
Brian P. Nov 2016
Great place near Gleneden Beach and Depoe Bay with multiple sleeping options for a family. Three different levels so older people that do not like stairs might not like it but it didn't bother us.
Kathie S. Oct 2016
Beautiful property, great amenities, clean & comfortable.
Phillip B. Sep 2016
We were very happy with the location. It was close to both Newport, and Lincoln City. both places have a lot of things to do. It was very close to the beach, and had a very quiet neighborhood. It had a nice little cafe right in the neighborhood that was only two blocks away, and a nice park to your dogs could play in. The beach was nice and peaceful with very few people around. Had a great time!
Anika D. Sep 2016
Beautiful townhouse in a beautiful little nook of the coast. This stretch of beach is full of wildlife and local Depoe Bay was teeming with whale activity. A very comfortable place to stay with all of the amenities and comfort for a lovely weekend getaway. Love the hot tub on the porch!
Charlene T. Sep 2016
We stayed 3 nites. Great location, great beds but went downhill from there. Completed an online questionnaire.with specific maintenance and housekeeping issues. Hopefully.they will be attended to. To highlight some issues:
1. Stove burners didn't all work
2. Oven did not work properly. Our dinner cooked for over 1.5 house and still wasn'the warm. Used the microwave to heat it up. What a.beer when you want to eat in and you are starving!!
3. Several lamps didn'the work because bulbs needed replacing and no extra bulbs around, so we took bulbs from other lamps.
4. Carpets and area rugs need cleaning.
5. Downstairs bedroom smelled like mildew.
Manager response:
We apologize for the inconveniences this guest experienced. The stove and oven have been replaced with a new one, carpets and fall cleaning will be done in October, and all dead light bulbs have been replaced.
Manuel R. Sep 2016
We like the place
Loren S. Sep 2016
We had 8 adults in this house, which was doable...but it really offers no privacy for the 8th person! We loved that each bedroom had it's own bathroom! The kitchen was great to work in...loved the big table and the bar! The house was clean and The washer and dryer were very helpful! The beds were comfy. There is an early quiet time for the neighborhood...but that's not a bad thing! If anyone wishes to get a decent amount of sleep it is quite nice!!! There are a lot of steps...which was not a problem for our crew, but some might not like that! We attempted to watch a movie in the DVD player but didn't get it figured out. There is not enough seating in the living room for a family of 8...that was disappointing...but there really isn't room for more! So...bottom line is...if you plan to spend a lot of time inside with 8 people, this is not the place for you!
Shelley H. Sep 2016
Had a great time. The walk to the beach was nothing at all and the peek a boo view from the balcony was gorgeous to watch the sunset.
Nicole M. Aug 2016
Lovely beach house with an easy walk to the beach. The neighborhood was clean and very quiet. I enjoyed my stay.
Keely W. Jul 2016
We had an amazing time! Loved the house-especially that each bedroom has a bathroom attached or close by! Amazing kitchen to make your own meals as well as a great sitting room! Also, quick walk to the beach! We will be back!
Ashley R. Jul 2016
This was our first experience renting a beach house and it couldn't have been better. The location was great -only a three minute walk to the beach. The house was fully stocked with plenty of towels, dishes, kitchen utensils and sand toys!! The process of booking, checking in, and checking out was so simple and convenient. It was all done online. It was such a great place and fit two families very comfortably. We ate out most meals so we didn't use the kitchen much but it looked like it had everything you would need. We will definitely be back!
Jennifer I. Jun 2016
We have a yearly get together with old college roommates and our families. This is the first time in 15 years that we have ever stayed at the same house more than once. This is a comfortable home, convenient location an beautiful surroundings. We will be back.
Victoria P. Apr 2016
This is the best place ever. I wish I could have stayed longer.
Markell G. Mar 2016
Thank you for our small getaway !
Jennifer H. Mar 2016
Had a great week stay there can't wait for another stay there!
Ryan J. Oct 2015
Beautiful location, close to beach, and beautiful home.
April S. Sep 2015
This 3 story townhouse, with a peek a boo view of waves and ocean sounds from the private top floor bedroom, has a modern, open layout while remaining comfortable and cozy. The pictures are very reflective of the actual property. We really enjoyed the 2nd floor dining and living area, as well as the deck on that level. The fireplace was so cozy and we spent many meals around the dining table enjoying fantastic take out from Dory's Cove including delicious clam chowder, fresh fish tacos with slaw & a yummy dressing and jojo's. We also loved their crab cakes! This restaurant is close by and affordable. We also did some cooking in the well stocked kitchen including fresh fish and crab selections from Barnacle Bill's seafood shack in Lincoln City. This townhouse is 8 miles south of Lincoln City right off Hwy 101, and we enjoyed the nearby Depoe Bay shops and whale watching opportunities. Newport is only 30 minutes away and in addition to watching the funny sealions at the waterfront, we also had a really good meal at the Newport Cafe (our fav!) located on Hwy 101 heading north.The aquarium was very overpriced and dingy, fyi. Back at the house we really loved the easy 2 minute beach access, stay to the left for fewer stairs, and the beach is absolutely gorgeous! Not much in the way of sea shells, but the sand is super soft and the wind is much milder there than what we experienced on Lincoln City beaches. The house's hot tub is wonderful, very clean and hot! The only things we disliked were housekeeping issues ie: batteries missing from remotes, bike tires were flat (we didn't want the hassle of Vacasa staff interrupting our time together so we declined them coming to fix), and dusting issues. There wasn't any pepper or sugar. When I mentioned this via phone, I was told spices and such aren't to be provided due to open container contamination. We purchased both, and left what we didn't use, anyway. This home is pet friendly which was great for our shih tzu, and we even used the baby gates to keep her from slipping down the wooden stairs from ground entry to 2nd story main living area. Overall we found this townhouse, its location, ample amenities, with private bed/bath areas and open common gathering areas to be the PERFECT vacation spot for two adult couples (family) and our small dog. We easily could have hosted 3 more people for the lovely bedroom/bath we didn't even use.
Becky H. Aug 2015
We had never been to Bella Beach, and loved our visit! We would definitely return. It feels like a tucked away, sweet little vacation community. Great beach access, not very crowded, and adorable little cafe to walk up to. The house was clean, and comfortable. We'll definitely return!
Lori S. Aug 2015
My husband and I and our two daughters and sons-in-law and our baby grandson had a wonderful time staying at Dolce Vita for our week of vacation. It was clean and spacious and was a perfect fit for us. We'd love to come again sometime.
Kelli T. Aug 2015
The house was perfect for staying with a group of friend which is what we did, or a family. The multiple decks, open living space and kitchen, made it easy to hang out and talk with everyone. Loved that they allowed dogs and had a garage where we could leave them to dry off. Two minute walk to the beach and 5 min drive to a grocery store made this an ideal location. Will definitely look at renting again in the future!
Mariela Z. Jul 2015
This house is in the right location to enjoy the beautiful coast in Oregon. We loved the neighborhood and surroundings. Beautiful gardens and feels very safe.
The house is very confortable and fully equipped with everything you may need.
We are planning to go back many times.
Laura S. Jul 2015
Everything was great from the service in reserVing home to the complete stay. I would definitely stay there again.
Sharon W. Jun 2015
This is our second time staying here. We love the location because it is so close to the outlets and beach. The house has great amenities. My kids enjoyed the bikes they provided as well as the sand buckets and shovels. Other than the stove taking so long to heat up, everything was great. We probably will make it a habit to stay here every time we come down to Lincoln beach.
Quynh L. Jun 2015
It was an great experience staying at the Dolce Vita with the private beach within walking distance. The house is well maintained and has most of everything we needed for our vacation. Wish it was a little warmer so we can hang out at the beach longer, otherwise, we had a great time!
Katy W. May 2015
This house was great! There were 3 adults and 6 children and we were very comfortable and had plenty of room. The kitchen was wonderful, but if you are planning on cooking a lot bring everything. I was expecting there to be more everyday cooking suppliers (non-stick spray, spices, etc) and there was very little, salt and pepper and cinnamon. Overall we all had a wonderful stay and are planning to be back for the 4th of July weekend.
Henry W. Apr 2015
Amazing rental! Very comfortable, conveniently located to the beach. Wish we could have stayed longer :)
Sharon W. Apr 2015
The house was great. Met all of our needs. Loved that it was pet friendly. The house was pretty clean considering it was a pet friendly home. Most places are not as clean. Love that they had bikes available.
