Bright, dog-friendly home with an enclosed yard, four blocks from the beach!

Craving an Oregon Coast escape? Find just what you're looking for at this dog-friendly Newport vacation home. It's spacious and refreshingly modern, near the beach, and offers a most relaxing getaway for your group of up to eight guests.

Located on a quiet tree-lined street in the Nye Beach neighborhood, this home offers great access to the beach (just about four blocks west), and eclectic dining, shopping at quaint boutiques, and plenty of entertainment for all ages is only a short walk away. As an added bonus, you can actually hear the ocean and sea lions from the house!

Thoughtfully decorated and comfortable, the home's colorful rooms filled with abundant natural light will quickly melt away any stress. Together with your group, pop some popcorn then settle into the living area's comfy leather couches for an afternoon movie or cable show on the flatscreen TV.

You could also take out a board game, or choose a book from the small library. Catch a nap here during the afternoon lull, or brew a cup of coffee and enjoy lovely picture window views of the ocean as sunlight streams in and the brew warms your belly.

When it's time to eat, head into the spacious kitchen to whip up a fresh, homemade meal. Well-stocked with all the cookware and modern appliances you'll need, the kitchen even has ample countertops and a center island for laying out ingredients or serving up snacks.

And when the meal is ready, enjoy it with your group at the six-seat dining table, at an adjacent three-seat cafe table, or at the two-seat island. You'll also have plenty of vibrant lighting provided by lamps and custom glass pendant light fixtures over the breakfast bar.

Wind down your day with a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood, or walk over to the Nye Beach turnaround to explore its quaint shops and eateries. You could also take a scenic drive south to catch a lovely sunset over Yaquina Bay, or take out one of the children's games and put together puzzles with your kids.

At the end of an eventful day, retire to any of three bedrooms to get the restful sleep you need for another day of adventures. Up to eight guests are accommodated on soft queen-size beds in each room, and one sofabed in an extra sitting room. With oversized picture windows, pastel-colored walls, pine furnishings, and framed artwork, the bedrooms are comfortable spaces guaranteed to deliver a great night's sleep!

Wake up refreshed in the morning and start your day off with a casual beach stroll. Explore tide pools, listen to the calming sounds of waves crashing, or play fetch with your dog (with a small nightly fee, up to two dogs can come along!).

Come home to plan your next adventures using the WiFi, then explore the rest of Newport. Make sure to include a stop at the world-famous Rogue Ales Brewery along the bayfront, which offers low-key coast-inspired dining paired with a huge variety of beer, some of which is brewed on site. There's even daily tours of the brewing facility, so arrive early to sign up!

If you've brought kids, they'll love a day spent interacting with playful sea lions, curious otters, and many more coastal species at the Oregon Coast Aquarium, which is about three miles south of this home, crossing over Yaquina Bay.

In the mood for a fun day trip? Drive about three and a half miles north to visit Oregon's tallest lighthouse and hike on picturesque trails through beautiful old-growth forest at Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area. If you're a golfer, bring along your clubs for a tee time at Agate Beach Golf Course (just two miles north), and if whale watching is on your bucket list, drive 13 miles north to Depoe Bay where, if you're lucky, you'll catch glimpses of grey whales on their seasonal migration to warmer waters in Mexico.

A lovely updated home close to city attractions, the beach, and plenty more, this dog-friendly Central Oregon Coast vacation rental welcomes your next getaway to the relaxing sights, sounds, and laid-back living of Newport. Book now!

We were very happy with the place. Great value for the place and pet friendly was a huge plus. Couldn’t get the spare key lock box to open when we needed it though

We apologize for any inconvenience you experienced due to not having access to the maintenance lockbox.

Clean, comfy, awesome location.
James A. Sep 2019
Loved that it was a spacious place with a nice kitchen, peek of the ocean from the front bedroom
Renee L. Jun 2019
Great location next to Nye Beach. Walk to shops, restaurants and beach. Comforts of home and great home for dogs.
Megan O. Apr 2019
This house had many annoyances and a few nice benefits. We had a nice weekend despite the annoyances. I do think the owners need to fix up this place though.

It has beautiful wood floors, huge windows, and a view of the ocean from the upstairs.

The downsides were:
-worn out furniture (including a broken futon that was advertised as one of the beds for sleeping 8 people)
-dark rooms without enough lighting, an oven that didn't function well (it took 45 minutes to cook a pizza),
-not enough blankets
-location- while it was advertised as close to Nye beach, that required a walk down a busy road with no sidewalk. So not a safe walk with little kids so we drove more than we had wanted.

Not going to stay in this house again. Nye beach is a great area, but this house left a lot to be desired.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Megan. We apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we’re happy to report that new couches, a futon, additional blankets, and a new oven have been added. In addition, all lights are working, and the city will be adding new sidewalks for safer walkability. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Maria R. Jan 2019
The house was great for Christmas family vacation.
Kent G. Dec 2018
A lot of room for the whole family. The house was very clean and well stocked with kitchen utensils, but I do admit there was a lack of privacy with missing curtains.
sierra s. Sep 2018
The pictures are beautiful, however, in reality the feeling of this house was far from our expectation. It felt as though a lot of money was spent on a bathroom upgrade, but left the rest of the house wanting attention. There are no curtains on the main floor with the exception of a front window, however, many of the other windows are open to the street. Not a great place if you don't want to share your vacation with the neighbors. The upstairs renovated bathroom also does not have a curtain and neighbors can look in. The downstairs bathroom only has a working tub, no shower. And as it is dog friendly, there are no carpets or plush rugs and the seating is limited if everyone wants to watch a movie together. There is a loft that is off limits, but as it is blocked off and not cleaned, it is dusty which has lead to poor air quality in the house. Not a good place to stay if allergic to dust. Also, the sofa bed has springs popping up and is very uncomfortable to sit or sleep on. The beds were comfortable though, so as long as you don't need the sofa bed...Overall the house felt more like a crash pad than a relaxing ocean retreat.
Manager response:
We are working with the owner on getting window coverings and replacing the sofa bed. We apologize for any inconveniences this guest encountered and hope to have an opportunity to host them again. Thank you!
Contessa J. Jun 2018
We loved the house. It was clean, bright and very quiet. The only thing we would change is window covering in the upstairs bathroom and add a garbage disposal to the kitchen sink.
Randy M. Oct 2017
The location and layout of this property makes me wish I could give it five stars. Some of the furniture, such as the beds, were horribly uncomfortable. Housing staff had not done a complete cleaning on the property. Pots and pans had not been washed. Hot water tank was broke, and took over a day to be repaired.

It would not take much effort for the property management company to have this place up to five stars. We will rent this place again, and hopefully some improvements will have been made. Vacasa is a good company, and we believe they will take care of these issues.
Gail B. Sep 2017
Excellent photography and carefully worded descriptions led us to expect more than we found upon arrival. Yes there is a backyard . . . but there is no outdoor furniture. There is no washer -dryer and the temperature controls on the a/c are either locked or the control is not easily understood, so the house gets stuffy on a warm day, and opening the windows may not provide the solution. The location is good and it's only a short walk to the shops in Nye Beach.
We've done family vacations in Newport before, and no doubt will again, but not in this house unless some changes are made.
Kristina A. Sep 2017
House was nice and had good amenities. Location was perfect, close to many choices of things to do, from exploring on the beach to enjoying golf, or a day of discovery at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. They welcome pets, which is a plus for families that want to include their fur babies too! We enjoyed our stay here and hope to come back again some day!
Cheryl P. Aug 2017
We reunited with our daughter from Australia and our son from Portland in this house and it was perfect for our reunion. The kitchen has everything you need and is spacious enough for big family dinners. The location is perfect. It's a short walk to the beach through a residential neighborhood. The nearby natural landscape is breathtaking for this Floridian flatlander! Everything you need is nearby. Communication with Vacasa was easy and comprehensive.
Lynn B. Aug 2017
Great location and airy space.
Craig G. Aug 2017
Great home. Clean and beds were comfortable. Does get warm in the bedrooms so I suggest bringing a fan or two. There is no washer and dryer so keep that in mind. We had 6 people and 2 dogs and it was comfortable and not cowded at all. 3 bedrooms and 2 bath was perfect. Fully stocked kitchen..will definitely recommend and will come back. Enjoyed our stay
Carren C. Jul 2017
This house just needs a little work to make it great. some things didn't work mostly the air conditioner was on for hours and no cool air. Not as close to the water as suggested in the ad. Down stairs shower didn't drain and the TV had no instructions on how to use had to call the agent twice for repairs . However the kitchen and up stairs shower were wonderful.
Manager response:
This home does not have any air conditioning; we apologize for any confusion that took place regarding this feature. Instructions will be provided for using the Roku device with the TV, and the drain has been snaked by housekeeping. The ocean is within 4 blocks of the home. We hope this guest had a wonderful time on the coast!
Jennifer M. Jun 2017
I liked the privacy of the property, fenced backyard, and ability to have our dog with us. It is spacious enough and has a lot of natural light. There aren't curtains or blinds on many of the windows, especially the bathroom and the bathrooms do not have a fan or the ability to open the windows. The upstairs bathroom doesn't have a mirror except for a round swivel vanity mirror and no lighting directly above the sink. I was told in an email that there is a washer and dryer, there isn't. It is better than a hotel, but we were a little disappointed with this property compared to others we have stayed in for the the same price or cheaper.
Manager response:
We apologize for the disappointments experienced during this reservation. The washer and dryer are located in the basement which requires a separate key. Guests are welcome to reach out if they are in need of those amenities so we can unlock the door for them. Thanks!
Pamela S W. Jun 2017
Well equipped kitchen, relaxed atmosphere. Good walk to the beach.
Joanna M. Jun 2017
This trip was a surprise for my moms birthday and it couldn't have been better! The house was great. Very comfortable and clean and super cute! Just a short walk to Nye Beach and the ocean, it was the perfect way to celebrate.
Beth N. May 2017
the home is lovely and quite comfortable. The kitchen are well stocked with dishes & cookware, so we only needed to bring food! It's short walk to the beach which makes your stay complete.
John & Nancy F. Apr 2017
4 adults, 2 kids and 1 dog enjoyed the house very much. It was the right size and had all the right facilities.
Bria D. Mar 2017
Adorable house with lots of open space and natural light. We enjoyed the open concept living downstairs and the 3 spacious bedrooms. Walk to Nye Beach area is several blocks, not baf at all, but if you plan to spend the day at the beach with all your beach paraphernalia, you may wish to drive. We hope to return!
Kayla B. Mar 2017
The house was in decent condition, had most of everything we needed (no whisk in the kitchen). It is a great location for our family we have two dogs so the fenced backyard was a huge plus. The house had great light during the day and was very close to the beach and the little downtown area. We would definitely stay here again!
Barbara O. Feb 2017
Wonderful location, very nice newer remodeled home with lots of room for the family and easy access to the beach, coffee, food and shops. Smooth rental transaction. So nice to be able to bring our family pet too.
Thank you????
Dennis T. Jan 2017
We were in Newport for a wedding on New Years Eve. It was very nice to have this place centrally located, easy access to stores, yacht club (wedding) and the ocean shore, very nice.
Erik H. Jan 2017
Nice place near the beach. While not perfect, this is by far the best place I've found on the coast that allows dogs. Thank you so much for letting us bring our furry soul mates.
Natalie V. Dec 2016
Loved this house! It was easy to book and Vacasa was very responsive and friendly. Will definitely use Vacasa again.
David M. Oct 2016
Good food. Good fishing. Warm bed.
Bobi G. Sep 2016
Good place to stay! Enjoy!
Sarah E. Sep 2016
The house was great! Plenty of room. Lots of kitchen tools for making just about anything you can think of. Lots of natural light. Great floor plan for entertainment!
Greg L. Sep 2016
The house cleaning service leaves little to be desired. Our first comment was that this property owner is getting ripped off for the cleaning services. Wrappers on the floor, dried food on the counters, cob webs on light fixtures and stairway, hair in the shower. We spent the first hours cleaning before settling in.
We had a very serious medical emergency and there was not a bit of consideration given to us. We realized that we did not purchase the protection but my partner had back surgery that went horribly bad two weeks prior to our visit and he is now paralyzed and in the hospital for over a month. There was no grace consideration of refund which would have been grateful but now even a credit to use it another time.
We have used Vacasa several times for Oregon coast vacations and really happy in the past but I think this has made it our last experience with them.
Manager response:
We are very sorry that housekeeping was done so poorly prior to this reservation; had we been notified we would have sent housekeeping out as soon as possible to rectify the problem. The Property Manager has followed-up with the housekeeping crew regarding this review. We apologize that our cancellation policies did not work well for this guest; we understand that life happens, which is why we offer Trip Protection, and we must enforce these in order to protect our owners. We appreciate our guests' understanding in this matter.
Monica G. Aug 2016
Great placein the middle of everything..
Heidi S. Aug 2016
Thank you for a great stay with the comforts of home!
Jacqueline H. Jul 2016
Nice and clean spacious home. Close walking distance to the beach!
Ashley P. Jul 2016
We came to stay here for a friend's bachelorette party and had a party of 5 people with us. The place had more than enough room for all of us and the house has been kept in very good condition. All the rooms were lovely and the 2 bathrooms with a bunch of girls was a blessing! The walk to the beach took us about 5-8 minutes but there were some neat little shops along the way.
Carol J. Jul 2016
Good location and lots to do nearby.
Edward W. Jul 2016
Wonderful home great area to stay in always love staying in newport cant wait to go back.
AILEA V. Jun 2016
LOVED the kitchen and comfortable bedrooms in this house. The kitchen was well-equipped and we enjoyed hearty meals sitting at the large table in the common area.
Kimberely S. Jun 2016
If you/your family have need of safety for elderly caution that this property is NOT designed with elderly safety in mind, steep stairs and all bedrooms are located on the second floor. Access to the backyard from the house also includes stairs. If you want to BBQ you will need to bring your own grill.

Otherwise, the house is not without its charm and is nice for couples/families that are of average health and wellness.
Manager response:
We apologize if this home did not work well for this group. We do have homes that are elderly and/or handicapped accessible that are advertised as such, but this home is not one of them. We hope the home was still enjoyed!
Stephen D. Jun 2016
Spent a few days visiting from Portland with my family. Getting to the house was easy and things were clean and well-maintained. Great location for getting to places in town or in the surrounding area. The house itself is not particularly fancy, but it was functional and worked well for a family with small kids. Short walk to Nye Beach is nice, though the sidewalks aren't great if you have kids in tow.
Kristen T. Jun 2016
We loved our stay in this well-equipped and comfortable home. It was in a great location. We would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to have a terrific Oregon coast experience!
Beth W. Apr 2016
Overall the place is nice and would stay again
Tara P. Mar 2016
The house was beautiful and comfortable. Close to the beach and a wonderful kitchen. Loved the back yard for the dogs. However the stairs are a little steep and railing isn't secured well which almost caused my father in-law to fall down the stairs when one broke.
Manager response:
We are very sorry to see that your father-in-law took a fall due to the railing. The Property Manager will get it tightened up right away!
