William F. Dec 2020
This place was so cozy and comfortable. We loved the location -- right on the beach, a 10 minute drive from Yachats and 5 minutes from Waldport. The views of the ocean are stunning, especially from the bedrooms upstairs. We appreciated the wood stove fireplace and the thoroughly equipped kitchen. We didn't love the super-soft mattress, and the decades-old carpet has an old damp smell you really only notice if you're sitting on the floor. However, those things did not diminish our enjoyment of this comfortable, oceanfront spot, and we will stay here again.
Manager response:
Hi William, thank you for staying with us! We are happy to hear you enjoyed the home and location! While we understand that sleeping preferences vary widely, we are sorry to hear that the bed did not provide for a comfortable night of rest. I have forwarded your feedback to the local staff so they can work to improve the house for future guests. We look forward to hosting you again!

Perfect week. House had everything we needed
Ronda C. Oct 2020
Loved that it was right on the beach. Fully stocked kitchen.

Very comfortable home with easy beach access. Located on a long beach so you can walk for miles. Very weak cell service, but WIFI worked fine. Only four stars because the master bedroom mattress is SO SOFT.
Keith S. Sep 2020
Clean, great view now after the hedge has been cut back.

The cabin was cute as a button and we loved the layout. The view was spectacular and the walks on the beach so relaxing. If you want some time to just relax and let your worries float away this is it. Thank you for a vacation we will remember for a long long time.

This home is comfortable and clean. The kitchen is well supplied. The view from the main floor is limited by shrubs if you are seated, but the upstairs bedrooms have an amazing view. Beach access is super easy by a path beside the north neighbor. The only downside for us was the too soft mattress in the Master. We still highly recommend this nice dog friendly home.
Manager response:
Hi Brian, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback as well. We are very sorry to hear the master bedroom mattress did not suit your preferences. The mattress is in good working order, but each guest has their own unique mattress preference. We sincerely hope for the opportunity to provide you with another truly special vacation in the future!

Beret N. Jul 2020
Loved that the house was dog friendly and the perfect size for the 4 of us. Great location on the beach and just amazing to hear the ocean all night. We'll be back!
Debra C. Jun 2020
Perfect size for what my small family needs, clean, comfortable, easy access to the beach, amazing view from both upstairs bedrooms.
Can hardly wait to go back.
Jessica L. Mar 2020
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Waldport. The house is comfortable, the views are outstanding, and the beach access was so convenient. We'd definitely stay here again.
Richard H. Mar 2020
This is a great house on the beach. You can hear the ocean and you have great view of the ocean from the bedrooms. The deck is nice to sit on and relax in the sun. Direct TV and internet works fine, easy to use and connect. A very cozy and warm house with easy beach access. Near hwy 101, but you only hear traffic if you're outside in the front of the house. This is our second time to rent this house and we'll probably come back again and again.

We had never been to the coast during the winter, and this was the prefect place to watch the ocean and revel in the sound of the waves. There were 2 storms that came through during our 4-day stay. Those were the best for big waves and sound. It rained every day, but we soon learned that it usually didn't last long if it wasn't a strong storm. We loaded up to leave between the rainfalls.

The home itself was so welcoming. We've stayed in himes that looked like the decor was whatever was at the thrift store that day. We love thrift store finds, but if there were any in this home, they all complimented each other. The furniture down stairs was so comfortable! But, even my wife's long legs were too short to easily sit on the bar stools. The kitchen was well-equipped, only lacking pepper in the pepper shaker. Even the dishes fit well with the fun, relaxing vibe. Both the upstairs and downstairs bathrooms are huge and well-stocked. We found it odd that only the upstairs bathroom had a higher toilet. We were glad for one, but both would have been nice. None was expected, of course.

Both bedrooms have oceanfront views, and even with the windows closed because of rain we could hear the surf., The room with the king-sized bed had a generous closet. The bed itself was rather soft, but we both were able to sleep.

Our dog really liked staying there. She sniffed and sniffed everywhere. There was no noticeable signs that other dogs had stayed there, but her nose was delighted. On the kitchen bar there was a bowl for water and a cute container of doggie bags. (Since we have years worth of them, we happily used our own, knowing others could be blessed.

From a disability standpoint, it was not advertised as being good for those with mobility issues. However a few things made my wife's time there more comfortable. There is an "incredibly comfortable" recliner in the livingroom. The dining room chairs swivel and the table is very sturdy if a little boost is needed to get out of the chairs. There are plugins conveniently located throughout the house. The nightstand was big enough for a CPAP machine and had an open outlet behind it. We were able to plug a power strip into it to also charge a phone and a Kindle. There are plenty of pillows. Going to and from the home there is a small step down from the street to the sidewalk, and another small step into the house. The door mat is great for scraping your shoes on. There is one just like it on the deck coming back into the house. It is screwed in and isn't going anywhere. The stairs are the greatest obstacle, since the bedrooms are upstairs. You must have the ability to walk or climb up the stairs. Coming down you can either walk or scoot down the stairs. (Be forewarned - the stair rails extend very far beyond the last support. It's probably best to stop using them at the last support.)

Some little notes...
1. If you're new to the area, make a trip to Yachats, Newport, or Florence. There are great outdoor markets during the spring/summer. Check TripAdvisor for info on each place. There's even a nice outlet mall in Lincoln City.
2. The garage door openers are in the basket on the bar that is against the wall. The garage itself is right across the street. Remember to put the openers back before you leave.

3. Google search for the directions for how to use the wood fireplace insert if you haven't used one before. That saves you from figuring out how to make a wifi call and then wasting the time of the nice Vacasa employee who takes your call. Also, wood is not provided. Many of the Waldport businesses sell it. These was some kindling and newspaper there, and we were thankful that wood was sold locally.

4. If your not using Google Maps to navigate, please be aware that house is in a tiny neighborhood just off 101. Watch the house numbers, and when you are very close, take a slight right off the road. Not being right on the highway really muffled the traffic noise.

Enjoy your stay!

Very nice location, easy access to the beach. Rate 4 stars because the king size bd is very soft. Had to sleep on the twin bed. Had a great visit. Was surprised to find it was a 2 story house. Huge bathrooms.

Beachfront house on beautiful and mysterious Big Stump Beach. Checks all of the boxes, would happily stay here again when back in the Waldport-Yachats area.
julie h. Dec 2019
Panoramic views from all rooms; sounds of surf; cozy, well-equipped home with wonderful wood fireplace and fully, gracefully equipped kitchen! Clean and inviting. I would recommend this vacation home to anyone.
Eugenia T. Dec 2019
This home is right on the Pacific Ocean. The views are amazing!
Patricia K. Oct 2019
It was beautiful, cozy, clean, a great location, well supplied with kitchen tools, linens and towels! We felt VERY much at home. It would have been nice to know that there is no cell service, and just an occasional wifi connection to the internet. When we go back to the coast, this is where we'd like to stay!! PS: Thanks for the games! Friends visited and we played lots of dominoes!
Manager response:
Hello Patricia, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We do apologize for the cell phone and internet service in this area can be a little difficult. We do hope you will allow us to host you again in the future!
Michael S. Oct 2019
Loved being able to hear the surf all night long and see the ocean and beach from our bedroom.
Kathleen P. Sep 2019
This house was perfect. Beach access was good, and the house was very comfortable .Hope to stay there again.
Phyllis A. Sep 2019
It was a pleasure staying in this comfy getaway. Private, secure and wonderful views. I will be booking it again. Thanks.
Hillary A. Sep 2019
We loved our visit to Waldport and this lovely house right on the beach!
Keith S. Aug 2019
Gorgeous location and a clean well appointed house with all the amenities. The beach is great for casual or long walks. A separate garage is provided for parking. We loved our stay, it was a 9 out of 10-- only thing to make it better would be a view of the beach from the deck. Is it possible to trim the bushes? We did notice other comments in the guest book regarding the same wish!
Manager response:
Keith, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for sharing your suggestion about trimming the bushes. We are contacting the local manager with this suggestion for their consideration. We look forward to hosting you again!
Michael John W. Jul 2019
We loved hearing the ocean during our stay. So peaceful and relaxing!

First and foremost, the beach as the back yard is just phenomenal. The home itself is very clean and cozy. The area is very quiet and peaceful with a short drive to the cute little town. Would definitely stay here again.
Michael R. Jun 2019
Perfect location. Clean, cozy home-immediate beach access. Owners obviously take the comfort of their guests seriously.

Comfortable, clean, great location.
Jonathan B. May 2019
We loved our stay at Big Stump Beach House! Absolutely fantastic oceanfront beach views from an elevated back deck. The home was super clean and in a nice quiet community right off the 101. Super comfortable king size bed in one bedroom and two twins in the 2nd bedroom. Ocean views from both bedrooms. Two full bathrooms. All of the kitchen supplies you might need, most importantly a coffee maker, coffee grinder & a blender. Multiple televisions (that we never turned on because why watch a TV with these views...), a blu-ray player and a good selection of VHS movies. Highly recommended!
