Cozy dog-friendly cottage with great ocean views and fantastic location!
This cute and cozy South Beach vacation rental offers gorgeous ocean views, a pet-friendly attitude, and all the basics to ensure you have a fantastic coastal getaway!
Located in South Beach, about five miles south of Newport, this home is close to the ocean, west of Highway 101, and within easy reach of many of the Central Coast's best attractions. Take a leisurely, scenic two-mile drive south to Ona Beach State Park for easy beach access.
Walk up to this charming cabin and step inside to find a warm and welcoming interior. Sit down and relax on the sofa and gaze out the sliding glass door at the nearby ocean, or flip on the TV and watch some cable or use the DVD player. You could even start a fire in the wood-burning fireplace to keep the space extra cozy, then grab one of the books from the shelf and spend an evening reading while snuggled up.
WiFi is available throughout the house, so you will have no trouble keeping up with your emails or looking up the day's tide tables. On the other hand, you could take this opportunity to turn off your phone and other electronics and enjoy life's simple pleasures! Put one of the provided records on the turntable and dance around, tell stories around the fireplace, or sit outside on the porch and watch the sun set over the ocean.
A compact kitchen has all the bare necessities - stove/oven, fridge, coffeemaker, oven, and sink - and even offers a few extras such as a coffee grinder, blender, and mixer. This is a charming space where you will have no trouble whipping up delicious meals, whether you're planning a quick breakfast of eggs and pancakes or a roast chicken dinner.
Down the hallway is a laundry area, which will certainly come in handy after a few days of playing on the nearby beach. A full bathroom has an old-fashioned tub and shower. In the bedroom you will find a full-size bed and a sliding glass door that offers access to the deck, so you can open up the door to get some fresh sea air, or step outside and sit at the table with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and enjoy the sounds of the sea.
This home is a perfect size for two guests, and would be great for a couple's retreat, fun getaway with a friend, or a trip with a small family. As many as three people are welcome to stay here, as long as one person is willing to sleep on the cozy sofa in the living room. You can even bring one dog with you, though please be aware that a nightly pet fee will apply.
Because you're so close to the beach, bring the dog and head down to the sand! Drive a few minutes south to Ona Beach and enjoy a picnic lunch, launch a kayak on the creek, or spend an afternoon strolling on the shore and looking for interesting shells. You could also go a couple of miles north to South Beach State Park, which has plenty of parking, easy beach access, walking paths, and a stretch of coastline that leads up to the jetty. Keep heading north on the highway and you'll find yourself in wonderful Newport, which offers a huge variety of activities to please every visitor.
On the south side of town, stop in at the famous Oregon Coast Aquarium and the Hatfield Marine Science Center, then do some antiquing in the area. Around town you will find many fantastic restaurants, plenty of shopping, activities such as golfing, boating on the Yaquina Bay, exploring the Nye Beach area, and much more. The lovely Lincoln City is about 35 minutes north along the highway, and there are many gorgeous viewpoints around the Central Coast, so don't be afraid to set out and spend a day exploring the coastline!

Private area with great ocean views, cottage was clean & provided many amenities.
Lovely beach and sunset views
Great location. Perfect little cottage for our much needed vacation. Great little trail to the beach. It was wonderful to listen to the waves at night. Can't wait to come back again!
Loved the seclusion the retro touches and the view from the balcony. Lovely sun trap to sip a wine at the end of the day.
We love this house! This was our second visit to this home in the same month. If I had the time I'd go back next weekend. two minor issues, freezer needs defrosting still. I had to remove enough ice so the door would stay shut and there isn't a toaster. As I said in my last review, these minor issues are far outweighed by how great the rest of the stay was.
Very quiet, clean and private. We where looking for a place to relax and reconnect and it was perfect! The path to the beach isn't as treacherous as some have commented though you do need to be sure footed. Nye beach in Newport is an easy walk on beach for the faint of heart.
It was very quiet great view close to town and parks and aquarium.
Perfect little cottage get-away for two. It's small, but doesn't feel cramped. Has everything you need and not a lot that you don't. Better ocean views than you might expect, and really feels quiet and secluded, despite other homes nearby. Beach access is a bit precarious for the not so fleet footed, but there is a very nice state park just 5 min drive away.
Not a great fit for folks that want to walk out the door to amenities, but if you're into holing up by the fire* and don't mind driving for supply runs or dining out, this is a nice little retreat spot. (*Presto logs only FYI; no real wood allowed.)
Like how far away this was from Portland. A great getaway.
Perfect location and setup

A great little bungalow by the beach but not on the beach. There were instructions on how to walk to the beach upon arriving at the home with a “at your own” disclaimer as I believe it’s a little steep. I didnt try it. Heaters in living area and bedroom worked great. Plenty of lights in the place. Bed was comfy. Was able to do a load of laundry with no problems. On a very quiet small street. No problems getting in with the directions provided. It’s virtually right off the 101 highway. Just a few miles from the main part of Newport. You can quickly get to all the attractions or points of interest in the area.
If you are looking for quiet and simple life. This is the place.

A very nice and silent Place.
Timeliness on your item recovery process. Your guests shouldn't have to constantly email and call about trying to recover a left article. People travel with multiple pieces of luggage and sometimes things get left behind - waiting a week to finally hear from someone does not show you are invested in helping us recover our left behind items. At that point, someone could have very easily taken them. Place was wonderful but will no longer use Vacasa due to lack of due dillengence in retrieving our luggage.
We traveled up and down the coast from Reedsport to Cape Meares. We saw many amazing things, lighthouses, great coastlines, sea lions, harbor seals, whales. This was the perfect place for us to come home everyday. Comfortable, quaint and well appointed. Highly recommend.
My wife and I spent our anniversary here and enjoyed it very much. It is the perfect size for a couple. The location is great with just a short walk to the beach. Loved sitting on the deck and watching the ocean and watching a movie in the evening with a fire going in the fireplace.
Lovely little romantic beach cottage. Access to the beach for morning walks and evening sunset. Lots to go see in Newport.
Beautiful little cabin with an ocean view, and all the amenities we wanted for a relaxing honeymoon. Sweet spot--hope to return!
Very cute cottage setting, although close to 101 even though set back a bit. Beach is a small hike down from property or you must take your car.
Weather was cold and damp for August so having a fireplace and bathtub were much appreciated, as well as having a washer/dryer. Bed was a little small, but bedroom was very cheery and light.
We got married in South Beach and we absolutely loved our stay at the house! it was perfect just for the two of us and we loved how they had thought about all of the small details we would need!
My wife and I loved the cottage and the location. We felt like we are all away from it all but could get to Newport for a night out when we wanted. Beach access was excellent you can walk on somewhat steep pathways that are narrow. When we were there there were not a lot of other people around so it felt quite private. Sitting on the deck and watching the whales in the ocean was pretty much worth the price of sitting on the deck and watching the whales in the ocean was pretty much worth the price of admission! Would definitely stay again :)
So cute! Vintage kitchen, views of the Ocean from bed. Access to water down some skinny steps.....Only for the surefooted but once you're down there you have a giant beach to yourself!
Only 5 houses in the neighborhood and most of them vacant.
Quiet and peaceful. Only the birds and the ocean. Perfect romantic getaway for two or a teapot for one.
Not walkable to anything tho.
I would love to live there. It is very cozy and comfortable.
Perfect for the two of us and our little doggy. She loved it as did we: great ocean view and sound of. The sea. Very pleasant and accessible to wherever we wanted to go.
Thank You for letting us stay at this quaint little cottage. I loved the vintage farmhouse feel and look. I will definitely stay here again.
This was a cozy one bedroom, one bathroom home in a fairly secluded area between Hwy 101 and the coast. You are not in walking distance to any coffee shops or restaurants, but with a trip to the grocery store before hand, you really won't want to leave. The house has cute and homey decoration. We loved the record player, the deck with ocean views and beach access (very steep, but doable). We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend for an individual or couple looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway.
House was clean and neat. Super quiet street with friendly neighbors. Beach access was awesome. Great little spot
This cottage is really special with its homey n warmth feeling . We were truly lucky n blessed to find this place and took home some very amazing memories. Can't wait to come back again.
We were looking for an affordable house with a view, that allowed our dogs. We found it! The cottage was cozy and quiet and just what we were looking for!

We enjoyed our family stay over the thanksgiving weekend here. The house is cozy, several duraflame logs were provided for a fire, and the location was a quick drive to Newport for exploring. The path to the beach was fine for our 2-yr old to amble down (highly supervised!) but wear shoes with traction as it is steep and slippery when wet. Waves from high tide come right up to the base of the path so be prepared.
All amenities were provided as detailed in the rental description, with the exception of a coffee grinder. So bring your own if you need one!
A beautiful little cottage--just right for rest for the two of us.
My husband works on one side of the state and I work on the other, so we enjoy getting together to reconnect. This is a charming couples cottage. The bed was comfy, the scenery was nice, and it was great to have wifi since the cell phone reception wasn't great. We have already recommended it, and we're going to try to make it back again in the future.
This was a lovely little cottage. Perfect for a couples get away.

Quiet place, great views, close to town

Lousy kitchen...dangerous entry and exit to the property...zero access to the beach (unless you fly), too many quasi antiques and too little work space, sink curtain constantly falling off...sheesh!
We are disappointed to see that this guest did not have a better experience here. The sink curtain is firmly in place. There isn't any counter space in the home, but it's quaint and cozy. The beach access is approximately 5 minutes away, and the view is beautiful!
There's a view of the ocean from the bed not shown in the photos that were a pleasant surprise. This cottage is like stepping back in time - so not for folks that like new/updated - but more for folks that like charm and cozy! The beach trail could be hard for some but not for the average able bodied adult. As a result there's not a ton of other people down there and that's priceless in the middle of summer! We loved it and will be back again - mainly because my dog needs a relatively private beach to be able to be off leash. Wish we could burn regular wood in the fireplace - so much more charming the crackle of a fire...
The house is nice and the interior is very charming. But most of the interior is old and needs replacement. Better cleaning is needed.
Quaint tiny house; vintage. Access to beach is limited, and be careful turning off 101. A large tree is there to greet you!
Perfect little house for a getaway for two. Charming, beachy, vintage decor including a record player and records! Awesome deck with partial view of ocean and 5 minute walk til your toes are in the sand.
Nice little cottage with beach access. Great place to stay.
We feel right at home the minute we enter this cottage. The furnishings are comfortable and quaint. Everything we need is right there. The ocean views and accessibility to the beach are great. There is a lot to do in the surrounding areas for everyone, dining, shopping, nature trails and, of course, miles of beach to explore and enjoy. We have been twice and can't wait until we can go again!
This quaint little cottage was in a great area for us. Being able to open the doors and windows to hear & see the ocean was amazing. Heed the sign by the front door when it comes to beach access. We made it down fine, but if you have little ones or are not very limber you might want to go down to the public access area. This cottage is the perfect little getaway and has everything one would need for rest and relaxation.
Location,views, and beach access! Perfect!
All And all we had s nice visit. The cottage could use some TLC.
This little house is a treasure. Very clean and cute as can be. The view was better than it looked in the pictures. We hope to be back very soon.
Quiet, cozy, and wonderfully relaxing rental. The beach behind the house is breathtaking.
Loved the intimacy and quaintness of the house. Conveniently close to Newport's sights and restaurants. This house is not equipped for those looking to do a lot of cooking (small stove and no exhaust fan). There were also sugar ants that made having food out tricky (I ended up putting all of my food in the fridge). Still a great house for those seeking a quiet beach getaway.
The small cottage was a cozy nest for two. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach and the partial views of the ocean. The tub was perfect for a relaxing bath. The antiques and collectibles throughout the house were fun. We especially liked the old records and record player! We had a very enjoyable stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
I stayed at this property as a retreat with my dog. We had a lovely time. The clawfoot tub is AMAZING, and the view of the surf is nice, even with the house in the way. The "beach access" is not for the physically challenged or faint of heart, but there is public beach access a short drive away. The home was clean and warm, the bed was comfortable, and the appliances all worked. Two things: The owners don't want regular logs used on the fire, but no "fire logs" were in evidence for my stay. Also, bring your own coffee grinder, coffee snobs. If you are looking for a nice little retreat, this is a great little place. :)
I'm a writer and came out for a few days to finish writing my latest book, sought this place out due to its closeness to the beach and privacy it had. Loved both even with the big storms that came in, it was a lovely quiet place to stay at and will be coming again.

You will not be disappointed with the accommodation of this quaint little cottage on the Oregon Coast. It has everything you need for your stay including the sound of the ocean and access to the beach. The claw-foot bathtub is nostalgic and deep enough for a luxurious soak. It has a full-size refrigerator to house the makings for homemade meals, beverages and fresh produce. It was a lovely escape that did not lack a good book or a way to watch a good movie. For us it was PERFECT!!
This was a weekend away with my wife and it couldn't have been better! Great location, excellent access to the beach, and we thoroughly enjoyed the quiet life. OK, we watched a little football, too ;) But just what we were looking for! Thanks for a great visit!!
Thanks for sharing your review! There is nothing wrong with mixing a little football into your vacation!
Lovely, everything as described except for two things: 1) bath didn't plug, so it was just a shower. 2) special firelogs not provided (wood not allowed), but I thought they were so didn't bring any (they are in the picture). Vacasa person was not able to help.
The curtains are very thin, and the house faces the neighbor's (owner's?) house (that house is what is between this rental and the beach). Their porch light is extremely bright. If they turned it off I would have left the doors open and just enjoyed the ocean sounds. But the light was so bright I had to shut the curtains, and it kind of helped.
I was really looking forward to fires, baths, and privacy during my personal retreat, but aside from those things it was a great little house and the beach there is beautiful and private.
This was a great experience for me, it was so relaxing and quiet. We were lucky to have good weather the whole time we there and it was great to be able to bring our dog along to enjoy our time together. I will be back, in fact I scheduled another trip before I even left. This place is great for a couple's weekend of calm quiet.
We enjoyed our stay immensely. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves was fantastic and put us to sleep quickly after a long day of exploring. Neighbors were friendly, house was clean, the home exceeded our expectations. The only thing I would change (if it were my home) is the location of the bed to change the view of the neighboring homes to a view of the sea by placing it along the other wall. Thank you for a lovely, romantic stay. We will be back again.
A wonderful place to relax and unwind. Felt perfectly safe as a single woman. Love the peace and quiet with the soothing background sound of the waves.
We really enjoyed the little cottage at South Beach. it was just the right size for an intimate weekend. The decor brought back fond memories of days gone by. Everything was great from the cottage itself to the views and even the neighbors were good.
This cottage is adorable! We loved the antique touches, the fridge, sink, clawfoot tub, record player. It is very close to the beach (about a 1/4 mile walk). We loved our stay here and would recommend it for anyone!
Cute, cozy cottage with great views of the ocean. Perfect get-away for 2 people. Quiet area, and the sound of the waves was constant and soothing.
Would definitely like to come back!
My daughter and I stayed here after my husband passed away. A safe harbour in a storm. Quiet, peaceful and lovely surroundings. Vintage charm and homey comfort. We will return again.
This is the perfect place if you love peace, quiet and the ocean. I was there alone and felt completely safe. The cottage was very comfortable, and they provided most everything I needed. Bring along cooking oil of some sort, but there were plenty of pans, dishes etc. It would also be a romantic get away for two. I would highly recommend this property! Just far enough away from town to be quiet, but close to everything you would like to do. There are also at least two rabbits living close by, and there were two deer in the "yard" to greet me when I arrived. Wonderful.....
This cottage is perfect for two. There is beach access just out the door, if you can handle a steep trail. The beach couldn't be much closer, dogs are welcome, and there is a great bathtub. In addition to all this, the cottage is decorated tastefully and not full of tick-tack and uncomfortable furniture. The view is great, but there is a big house in front of the cottage. Other than that, the only downside is the tiny kitchen. Overall I'd recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a quiet and small spot next to the beach.
