Beautiful Views!
Donna B. Apr 2019
We loved the view and the house was very comfortable for 7 of us. Be sure to find house in the daylight due to the road to the house.
paul g. Apr 2019
The location was awesome! The house sits just about at the top of the hill, and you get a panoramic view. You feel like you're at the top of the world. The house is a sweet 3 floor cabin with a lot of wood interior.
Lee M. Nov 2018
The view was spectacular. The house was roomy and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend!
Marianne B. Oct 2018
The view here is extraordinary and there is everything you need for a short to extended stay. We’ll be back.
Steven S. Sep 2018
Great views from the deck and balcony. You can hear the surf day and night.
John T. Aug 2018
Excellent location and views, lots of space for kids and dogs, well-supplied kitchen, great decks, beach views from master bed, great water pressure.
James W. Aug 2018
This home offered a wonderful view of the ocean.
Jessica N. Jul 2018
The best views in the area and a good space to stay for people of all ages.
Pankaj K. Jul 2018
This is a great place for a family to stay. Beautiful view! I would like carpet floors to be vacuumed but it was ok. Finding the house was bit challenging as there is a very narrow gravel path leading to the house so I would recommend reaching here before it is dark.
Steve B. Apr 2018
We’d go back! Had everything we needed, clean, real happy that we chose this place for our three generation family get together. Took one star away because the gas “wood” stove wouldn’t come on, had pilot light on but just wouldn’t ignite.
Killer view and great location!
Manager response:
We apologize the fireplace was out for this stay. It has since been repaired, and we look forward to sharing the feature with our guests. Thank you!
Cacilia M. Jan 2018
The views are incredible!!!!! Even in January you can sit in the living area and stare at them for hours. We had a taste of all the weather conditions while here and it was impressive to see even on the stormiest of days. Kitchen is a good size for entertaining and prepping every evening meal, just remember small selection of knives and pans.
For a girls week away this was a wonderful find and would definitely stay here again!!!
Joanne A. Oct 2017
Come to this home for the outstanding view. Spent many hours watching the beach, birds and clouds rolling in and out. Fantastic.
Daniel H. Aug 2017
The view from this house is amazing! We had such a wonderful time. We will come back.
Julian P. Jun 2017
Great location with a million-dollar view. House is spacious. Listing says queen beds, but they're more like fulls. Loft futon is not really sleepworthy. Cookware is pretty battered and not a proper knife in the kitchen. BUT, this isn't why you choose this place. You choose it because the 180 degree view of the Pacific with Proposal Rock is breathtaking. The roar of the waves soothe your soul. The sunsets are awe-inspiring. Pack a frying pan and a knife, and enjoy the view!
Beatriz F. Apr 2017
Very confortable house, with an ocean view from every room!!
The deck is spacious and well maintain.
Overall, good house!
Shannon Z. Mar 2017
Was a fantastic home to have our church retreat. Nice and cozy with great views.
Masumi S. Feb 2017
A wonderful view, listening birds sing and sound of waves!
Amy B. Feb 2017
Great view of waves!
Jennifer H. Jan 2017
Wonderful view and a comfortable house, wish we could have spent more time there. Do try and take a vehicle with good ground clearance, our minivan kept scraping bottom trying to get in and out of the driveway. If you're looking for frying pans they're in the drawer under the oven ;)
Heidi F. Dec 2016
We stayed here to celebrate my mom's 80th birthday, 7 of our family members were able to come. The view was beautiful and the layout/beds/bathrooms worked great for our group. The driveway was not as much of an issue as some other reviews indicated, though it helps to have a reliable vehicle and a non-timid driver because it is a bit steep & gravel. We would definitely stay here again.
Mindy L. Nov 2016
Beautiful view, lots of separation of space.
Karen B. Nov 2016
Amazing view! Loved the hot tub.
Elaine G. Oct 2016
Loved the view and the privacy of the house overlooking the little town of Neskowin.
Dongsun C. Sep 2016
Fabulous view i ever experienced...especially sunset
RaGena M. Jul 2016
The gravel driveway to the property was somewhat intimidating (gravel and uphill), but the property was well worth the anxiety. The elevation gained to get to this property resulted in 180 degree view of the ocean and beautiful sunsets. You enter into the laundry/mud room where we chose to put all of our luggage. There is also a bath and bedroom with twin beds on this floor. My sister chose the bedroom/bath on the second/main floor. I took the master bed/bath on the next level. We both agreed the beds were wonderful, and we cracked the windows to hear the surf all night. The deck was great for viewing sunsets and watching the ocean. We didn't use the kitchen, but chose to eat at the local cafe at the bottom of the hill. This was a very peaceful area, not many tourists during our stay. We did not take the path to the beach, but drove instead. Although it was early, only saw one other person on the beach. If you like long walks on the beach, this is the place. We were scheduled to fly home after staying here two nights. Normally, we are ready to go home, but we were both reluctant to leave this property. We've been home a week, and my sister has told me several times that she misses Wavehaven and wants to return.
Tim K. Jul 2016
Neskowin has a great beach with a stream entering the Ocean for a neat safe place for the kids to play in the water right by the ocean! House has a Fantastic View!
Ankur K. Jul 2016
The view from this house far exceeded our expectations. We were hoping to rent a house with Ocean front but due to last minute booking, we couldn't find that and ended up renting this house with Ocean View. We were so glad we did. The view is far far better than houses at Ocean front as this house is up high and you can see so far out, all the rock formations, mountains, etc.

The house was also very cozy, basic but well equipped and overall comfortable. Also, even though this house doesn't list BBQ grill in the property details, it has a charcoal BBQ so you just need to buy Charcoal Briquettes and enjoy BBQ with this amazing view.

There was only big downside to this house that I hope the owner fixes quickly. The driveway is steep, has puddles and built of gravel. That means there is very little traction for cars that are not 4-wheel drive and it can be a challenge to get the car all the way to the top. The driveway really needs to be paved otherwise it is dangerous as there is a small ditch on the side and when the car skids, it can easily end up in the ditch.

Overall, I would highly recommend this house.
Richard C. Jul 2016
A very comfortable home with fantastic views. Everything was as described with an abundance of room for all of our family. Everyone had a great time and requested that we make this an annual event.
Alonso Z. Jun 2016
A wonderful house on a beautiful hill overlooking the beach, the sea and the forest. Gorgeous!!!
Martina C. May 2016
View was incredible. Located close to Lincoln city, Newport, Yaquina Head and whale watching
Stacey F. Apr 2016
Very nice house, unmatched ocean views. Highly recommend!
Ann & Dave B. Apr 2016
Very comfortable home with a fabulous view.
CLAYTON N. Apr 2016
great property, great service from owner and vacasa. house just needs a little TLC on maintenance and cleanliness
Kristin P. Feb 2016
It's a long and energetic hike to the beach and back, but I did it every day. High tide during full moon obliterates much of the beach, but low tide brings out the forest hidden otherwise on the south beach. The house is comfortable, the view amazing, the drive knuckle biting. The north windows open invites the sound of frogs on a clear night with the background of surf. A different window open brings just pounding surf. The heavy rain was exhilarating. I could not figure out what kind of hawk flew by because I was looking down on it and my book only shows them from below. HA! But I recognized the bald eagle that passed by every morning. We had deer, a raccoon, and a lot of laughs. Thanks. I am guessing that no matter what happens here, as long as you can get up and down stairs with little effort, you will want to give it 5 stars. Because I am and I have a list of things that went wrong. You might consider bringing your own frying pan and DVD player if these matter to you.
Ann & Dave B. Jan 2016
Wave Haven is a cozy knotty pine home with a fabulous view.
Danae C. Jan 2016
This was a great house! We'll definitely be back!
Lynn T. Dec 2015
The ocean views in the photos looked fantastic and we were not disappointed. An ocean view from nearly every room in the house! Quite a nice place to curl up with a book on a rainy day and watch the waves rolling in.
Alexis B. Oct 2015
We enjoyed a lovely stay at Wave Haven. The sunsets were beautiful; the deck was such a treat and there was plenty of room for all of our guests to remain comfortable at all times. The house/sheets/rooms was/were exceptionally clean aside from a backup of trash/recycling in the garage (maybe from previous guests?). Be careful of the shower on the main floor... the door doesn't engage in the track so the potential for water flooding onto the floor is quite high. Other than that, a really relaxing stay. Thanks for making our weekend special!
Jannelle L. Aug 2015
A fabulous place for family gatherings (ours came from New York, Pittsburgh, Seattle and Newberg, OR.) One went on the China, Thailand and locales, where the ambiance is not so beautiful. I go for the visual experience, and with the gorgeous weather we had, it couldn't be beat. The house has character and is comfortable and accommodating. Thanks!
Tim K. Jul 2015
We've rented a house on the coast every summer for quite a few years, and this was absolutely our favorite. The view was spectacular PLUS - worth being a SHORT hop from the beach (5" drive). The house was wonderfully comfortable, with lots of luxury features including the artwork. We took our little dog, and the outside area was good for him, even if not fenced. The room set-up was great for us, as we had our 2 grandchildren (twin beds downstairs), queen bed on main floor (married kids), and 2 queens upstairs with privacy -there were 7 of us, so it worked out beautifully! The kitchen had all that was needed, and the big dining room/living room was perfect for us. We would return here tomorrow if we could!! Because of its outside shape, the kids called it their "barn", and they hated to leave...so did we all.
The little restaurant at the bottom of the hill is fantastic, as was the "country store" right by it: between the two, we could've gotten by with packing no food to the beach!! What a heavenly stay we had...
Sandra O. May 2015
Our trip was wonderful. Eight girlfriends had a wonderful time at Wave Haven. This is a peaceful location with a beautiful view and comfortable accommodations. I will be bringing my husband here and scheduling another trip for the girls next year. Thank you to VaCasa for handling the one thing I had to call about, they were quick to respond and very friendly.
Brooke B. Apr 2015
Great property with wonderful views. Cozy and accomadating. A few of the televisions are in need of upgrading and the cable TV could be glitchy. Also the door to the third story could really use a door knob instead of just a lock.
Manager response:
Thank you for the review! We are so glad that you had a wonderful stay. This home is excellent for a rejuvenating getaway, with its stunning views and a spacious, yet cozy, interior. Thank you for the feedback as well! The local property manager has been notified so that he can look into those items!
Mia C. Apr 2015
Super comfy beds..great place to relax with family or friends..kitchen had everything we needed..loved it!
Nancy P. Apr 2015
We were a little worried when we turned right away from the ocean to get to the house but when we actually entered the house and looked out the windows we were in for a very spectacular view of the full coastline from Proposal Rock to Pacific City. We have stayed at many rentals on the Oregon Coast and this was by far the best view. The unique town of Neskowin was very charming and not teaming with people as was the bumper to bumper traffic in Lincoln City and even though Pacific City was very busy it was fun to people watch. The house was cozy and I had read a past review that stated they felt as if the ocean was in the living room well that was very true. Thank You for a great family getaway !!!
Kelly G. Mar 2015
A couple of times each year, some friends and I gather at a location to relax and unwind. Wave Haven provided the backdrop for this season's escape from reality.
What a perfectly picturesque place to make new memories.
Stacey D. Mar 2015
The view was amazing from this house. It felt like the ocean was in the living room with you. There is a great ocean view from 2 out of the three bedrooms. Such a bonus. Overall, great home with a great feel. Very clean and well maintained. We would love to come back soon!
Josephine (. Feb 2015
We are three couples in our early 70s. The house was perfect as each couple had their own bathroom and bedroom on separate floors. Over the years we have rented a number of homes for our get-togethers and this one was the best. What a view. And we loved walking on the beach! I spent many summers in Neskowin with my grandparents, so this was an even more special spot for me. Thanks to the owners for making their home available.
Diana A. Jan 2015
Fabulous ocean views and sounds of surf. Cozy, comfortable, clean and roomy. There are a lot of stairs and difficult for my elderly aunt, but there is a bedroom and bath on main floor so wasn't too bad. Very steep lot and street, not easy walking. Secluded and private.
Michael C. Jan 2015
This is by far the most wonderful home we have stayed in through Vacasa Rentals. We can't wait to return to this wonderful home. I wish the prices for the coming year would not increase so much so we could come back sooner. Tell the owners they are lucky folks.
Carol S. Nov 2014
The view was absolutely drop dead gorgeous, and the privacy made this a really special property. It's not really walking distance to the beach, but the view made it worth it. Our only issue was the fact that it is VERY dark at night, and with a dog it made it hard to take him out! We'll definitely be back though.
Debra S. Sep 2014
We stayed here for 4 nights last week, and it was truly a relaxing setting. The house has everything a person would need, and the view is gorgeous. There is a sense of privacy even though there are several houses around. We have rented many houses on the Oregon coast through the years, but this one will be right up there with the top of them! We also met the owner and she was great!
Steve B. Jul 2014
It was the perfect place for our family of 8 and puppy! Beautiful cabin, perfect view. It is only a short drive down the hill to the beach area. Everything you need in a kitchen is there. Plenty of towels! We are hoping to make this an annual tradition for our family. Has a great feel of a cabin by the ocean.
Brock L. Apr 2014
My wife and I wanted to get away for a few days so we decided to come to Neskowin. We absolutely loved it in this house. The view was so incredible, it was nice to just relax on the deck and watch the waves crash below on Proposal Rock. It was also nice to cozy up with a blanket and drink coffee with the fireplace inside. There is plenty of space for a whole family to vacation here or just one couple. We loved having the hot tub with the sky light, very romantic.

The town of Neskowin is not too far from amazing hikes. We enjoyed hiking at Cape Lookout which is 30 minutes North. I would highly recommend this hike. It is not too difficult about 5 miles roundtrip. You get incredible views of the coastline on this hike. I also heard that Cascade Head to the South was also an amazing hike. One potential problem with Neskowin is that it is a little far from any big grocery store or retail stores. It does have a general store which gets the job done but my wife and I stopped in Newport City on the way to grab our food then headed over. We also loved Neskowin because it was only 2 hours from Portland and 2 hours from Eugene. After our stay in Neskowin we did travel to Portland for a few days which was also incredible in a totally different sort of way.

I would highly recommend this property for a getaway. The view is breathtaking. You will feel relaxed and enjoy every second of it. The nature around Neskowin is top notch and it is only a few hours away from Portland if you wanted a taste of the city.
Manager response:
Thanks for this excellent review! We're pleased you enjoyed your stay and were able to get in some hiking along the beautiful coastal trails. The view from this home is amazing! Your feedback about the lack of large stores in the area is very helpful. It's best to buy your food on the way into town!
Robert C. Apr 2014
So very relaxing, quiet and the forest around house DELIGHTFUL!
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the home and the forest. Please come again!
Robert C. Apr 2014
We loved our stay here, people who own it seem to have gone overboard to see that anything you may need was there and available for us.
The bed in the master bedroom was wonderful. Enjoyed it so much, hated to leave.
Thank you so much, Katie and Bob

Annette A. Apr 2014
After having to reschedule our trip we lucked out on a gorgeous weekend! Ended up only being the two of us with ultimate view, away from the crowds, a short walk to the beach, with a nice workout coming home! Everything you could want in a get away! I recommend to anyone who likes privacy and amazing view morning, noon, and night!
Brad and Annette
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. We're pleased that we were happy with the home and enjoyed the views and beach access. Please come visit again!
T K. Apr 2014
Very relaxing and lots of beach and beaches to go explore. I would recommend a note for Tuesday guests to make sure to take the garbage out Monday night. After hearing the garbage truck I checked the bin and it was full. Grr. Otherwise, we had a fabulous stay. Amazing view.
Manager response:
Thanks for your review and feedback about the garbage pick up!
Garry C. Feb 2014
Regarding safety, Would not recommend this property if there is 6" of snow on the ground, if that ever happens again. Had to chain up all 4 wheels on my guests car to get them up the hill, my truck made it fine in 4 wheel but coming down was a white knuckle experience. A wonderful experience just the same. Would definitely come back
Charrese E. Jan 2014
This was a last minute decision because we suddenly realized that it was a 3-day weekend and we are so happy that we decided to do it because we not only did we stay in a wonderful place but the weather turned out to be awesome.

The property was very nice and well maintained, the access to it is very steep though, I would not want to try to get there if the roads were icy. I was lucky enough to get the master bedroom with it's amazing views and very comfortable bed but my 2 friends were also happy with their beds in other rooms. It says comfortable sleeps 6 but could sleep 8 but really it could comfortably sleep 8. The ground floor bed room has 2 twin beds and an attached bathroom and then the 1st floor bedroom (where the living room and kitchen are) also has a bathroom and on the top level there is the master and another room which has a double futon bed and there is also a very large bathroom with separate shower and giant bath.

We didn't watch any TV or movies but there is what appears to be a decent, flat screen TV. The gas fired stove heated the living room really quickly and there was central heating for the rest of the house that worked very well. Kitchen has everything we needed to cook with and had a dishwasher too. We cooked our own meals since the Oregon coast is definitely not known for having good restaurants.

I was able to bring my dog for a very reasonable $10 a night fee and since the laundry room serves also as a mud room it was easy to wipe the sand off of her before she went upstairs. She had such a fun time on the beach.
Tamara U. Mar 2013
Can't imagine a more wonderful place to be. We didn't want to leave. Every detail had been taken into consideration. The beds were so comfortable. We forgot coffee filters-there were some on hand in the house just in case. From the big things down to the very small. We'll be back.
sean s. Feb 2013
Had almost everything that I needed, I might suggest 1 or 2 baby gates for the stair cases. Other than this, had a Terrific time, WE WILL BE BACK.
Thank You For a Great Weekend, View&Home
Kaia C. Oct 2012
Such a wonderful space to relax, curl up by the woodstove, and read or take in the amazing surrounding view. The three stories create lots of room for privacy and comfort. Great kitchen. Well stocked, cleaned and loved. Great walk down to the beach or a two minute drive
Thomas R. Sep 2012
Very clean home, great deck to watch the waves, pleasant experiece.
Daniel G. Aug 2012
We stayed at this house for only a few days and that's probably the worst part. Out family really enjoyed the stay here. Unbelievable view!!! Very cozy and welcoming house. Great, fresh ocean air. Too much to list. All in all, this was a very relaxed and excited getaway placd
Roy G. Aug 2012
I was very happy with the location and condition of the house. It also can with almost everything that is needed to a great time. The drive up to the house is very steep. but worth the effort. The only thing that would make it better is a microwave. We had a great time and will be back.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, the owners are adding a new microwave so it will be there for your next stay!
Kathleen L. Jul 2012
Gorgeous View, everything we needed was available, very comfortable place to stay. Will come back!!!
Jerry and Debbie Z. Jul 2012
Wave Haven is a magical place to release the pace and stress of everyday life, and allow the breathtaking ocean views to comfort and renew you. The warm wood ambiance and comfortable accomodations provide all you need to relax and enjoy with loved ones. We thoroughly enjoyed our several stays, and look forward to returning again.
Tim B. Jul 2012
One of the most captivating aspects of Wave Haven is the view - pretty much a 180 degree sweep from the shores below Cascade Head (looking south) to the beaches and dunes at Pacific City to the north. From every window, another view of the sea. And from the deck, you seem able to reach out and touch Proposal Rock just below the house, and see eyeball to eyeball with gulls, ravens and eagles as they soar by on some invisible thermal or breeze. The other captivating thing is the comfort of the home, spacious and yet invitingly close. A wonderful place for a solo adventure, a couples retreat or for a group of eight. A place for community among some of the most serene landscape in Oregon! I have been to Wave Haven many times and plan to return at least once a year for a multi-day stay.
Bruce A. Jun 2012
I have stayed at WaveHaven many times over the years and it is a wonderful place for family and friends. Easy beach access on warm, sunny days. Cozy home and wonderful views of the ocean during storms. Great hiking nearby. We have cooked gourmet meals and comfortably slept 8 adults. The kids love the big sandy beach. Neskowin is a sweet coastal village.
Ralph F. Jun 2012
We came all the way from North Idaho to join friends at this very special house. As you sit on the deck or in front of the picture windows, the Pacific, Proposal Rock and the lovely village of Neskowin lay below you. I felt like I was hovering over it all in a whisper-quiet hot air balloon. The house itself has everything we needed for 3 blissful days. We'll be back!
Judy T. Jan 2012
I came with a small group for a winter retreat I led. Great accommodations for several women, clean and quiet. Perfect deck and view of course. Teddy made it easy to be there with well thought out amenities, cupboard space and special touches throughout.
