We loved the location and the view, my 16 year old son was a little disappointed that there was not even basic cable couldn't watch the Blazer game. But the location, view, was excellent. Clammed right out the back gate. ☺️
Beautiful house, view couldn't be better, master bed so comfortable. I wish my kitchen had this view! Nice quiet neighborhood, even had a garage. Dogs enjoyed easy beach access right down the road (path at white mailbox). Will stay here again! Waldport never changes which is what we like about it.
Loved the view. Could not let dog loose in the back yard, because fence needs major repair, She was out and gone in less than 5 minutes. carpets are old dirty and need replaced. deck needs repair. Stairs down to the water need to be totally rebuilt or eliminated, because of safety hazard someone is going to get hurt going down them. There should be a do not enter on the gate. The bedrooms and the bathrooms were great, the kitchen was great. The living room and dining room were great Would return again if problems were solved.
We appreciate this feedback and will begin work on repairing the fence and placing a sign on the gate. Thank you!
Like previous reviewers said, the view is spectacular. The kitchen is also very nice and user friendly. I did have to spray for ants after killing at least 50 every morning in the southeast corner on the counter. I appreciated the fenced yard for my dogs. However, the carpeting, especially by the dining area table, is really dirty. There are several, large dark stains that are 1 - 2 feet across! None of the heaters in any of the bedrooms worked. If it's warm weather, that's probably OK. But we had a couple of chilly nights, and it would have been nice to have had some heat. I was really, really looking forward to using the Jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, but there was a sign above the tub stating that the jets were broken! And, I thought the house had a double car garage, as shown in the pictures. But only one side was available to use, the other being boarded up and inaccessible. I have routinely rented two other homes on this street, same side, same view (different management company), and both are in better shape and similarly priced. This home is a nice place, but really does need some work. Hopefully that can happen.
We appreciate this feedback! We have treated for ants, the carpet is scheduled for a cleaning, and we are looking at options for repair for the Jacuzzi tub. Thank you!
The house looks out on Alsea Bay which is a gorgeous view. The house is big, but a bit dated.
The view of the bay bridge is a treat at this house! House worked well for our family vacation. Had an issue where I was asked not to park our boat in the ample driveway. Moved it 3 houses down to where our friends were staying with thier boat luckily. House had all of the essentials though a small food processor and a good roasting pan with a lid would be a welcomed addition. I brought my own. There is a new 4 slice toaster that I purchased and left at the property to replace the 2 slice toaster provided that would not eject toast without turning over the toaster and letting the pieces slide out. Please Enjoy!
This home has LOTS of room and a view that is to die for! The neighborhood is very quiet and the beach is just a 5 minute walk away...the bay IS your backyard. It's a little dated but we were very comfortable. We will return.
House had great views. It was clean. Neighborhood was very quiet during our stay. Be wary of "ramp" down to bay. Very unsafe.
We initially didn't want to stay at the bay, and wanted the ocean, but this bay was beautiful and perfect for our stay!
This home was amazing - great views, open living area and “bright.” Comfortable beds and a beautiful porch area to eat a meal and take in all the natural beauty.
Will definitely be back....
Very nice View of the Bay and Bay Bridge. House needs some TLC but is comfortable.
Good quiet place, nice view of harbor and Waldport. Good kitchen and bath. Everyone enjoyed the stay.
Very nice Views of the Bay and Bridge. Lots of Sea Gulls and Seals and Crows. We saw a Bald Eagle on our last day there. Caught keeper Crabs climbing down the Rocks in the back and throwing in a Crab Cage in to soak awhile. The ramp to the Bay is broken and unsafe to use. The home is comfortable but needs a lot of maintenance. Liked having the Wood stove for relaxing during cold Winter Days. Ray's Grocery store in town is very expensive as well as Ace Hardware so shop in Newport first.
We appreciate having this brought to our attention. Maintenance is actively working on getting the ramp to the bay repaired. Thank you!
Wonderful and comfortable place. Did some crabbing. That ramp to the bay is challenging. Steps would be nice.
Great views, comfy home, some wear and tear, latches not working, spa not working, sofa and chairs run down. Otherwise a very easy place to be.
The location sells this place the views are outstanding. We have stayed here several times in the past. For kayakers you can launch right in the back yard the ramp down to the water along with the back fence needs some updating but it works. The house is obviously older and needs some freshening up but overall its very very clean
Even in the middle of a storm we had a great time. Love the view of the bay
The only thing this place has going for it is the view!!!!
We have stayed n this particular house 3 times, it is a favorite when we are crabbing as our boat pulls right up out back! We have a large group down here together some live down here . House is always clean and well taken care of, staff is super helpful.
Front outside lights were not working, as well as jet tub still out. Only improvements we would like to see would be a mount for shower head in master bath and the carpet is clean but Very Old and Worn.
We enjoy all these houses that accept our dogs and understand the expense that replacing carpets would be.
We will still rent this house again !
Love the view out the windows, great location, overall open and comfy.
We arrived 9 minutes after check in time and the house cleaner was just leaving - she was very friendly and helpful. The house has amazing views of the bay and the city. We enjoyed the back porch, the short walk to the beach. We talked to clammers on the bay shore from the porch. The house was well laid out for the 5 of us that stayed there. The kitchen was big and great to converse and cook in. We found all the kitchen items that we needed - nothing was missing. I can't say enough about this house, I'm telling all my co-workers, friends and family about it. The price was great, location was great and we had an enjoyable time.
Loved the view and location. House layout is a little odd but the view from the kitchen, living room and back deck makes up for it.
We have been returning the Harbor House every summer for over 10 years. It is a unique property with Alsea Bay frontage. The home is comfortable and a great place to observe wildlife and crabbers on the bay.
This house is wonderful! We enjoyed eating out on the deck with a million dollar view!od the bay! The barbecue grill was very goo. Neighborhood is small and quiet. This was an amazing and relaxing retreat! Our two dogs enjoyed the fenc d back yard.
Our family of 4 and 2 four legged friends loved this location. We were very comfortable here. We loved having the river in the backyard, we fished, saw seals, and explored when the tide was out. We loved the short walk to the beach . The view is great. It was peaceful and very relaxing.
A perfect house to just chill out and enjoy the tranquil view of the water and the bridge. Great access to the ocean and the bay. The folks "crabbing in the bay " kept us with constant entertainment. The fenced private back yard kept our little yorkies safe and a part of the group. The house needs updating, but it's clean and tidy.
The view was great and the fenced back yard was super for the 6 year old twins and the dog. Roomy for the family and loved the large kitchen.
Loved having direct access to bay from home, my husband kayaked daily from the dock! The deck was a favorite place for both morning coffee and evening wine, while the dunes and beach which were a 5 minute walk were great for watching the sunset. This home was very clean and had most everything you need when you get there. While a bit dated on the interior, it was very comfortable and the view of the Waldport bridge and bay were amazing. Dozens of seals were in the bay every day and joined my husband as he kayaked. The large windows and sunny living room and kitchen were a joy to wake up to!
The view of the Alsea bay is fantastic with wall to wall windows on that side. The beach access spot is 5 houses away. The picture with the stairs is a little deceiving as at this time the stairs stop 4 to 5 feet from the bay rocks even at high tide. Cannot get to the beach without going up street. Dogs are safe as the back of the house is fenced.. The back is deck and gravel .Bed comfortable with a night view of bridge from Master. Great idea of shower as you enter to wash off sand.
This house was a great family house. The access to the beach right out of the backyard was amazing. He was very easy to get quick beach access just right down the street. The house is beautiful with plenty of room. It has a great kitchen that was Wonderful for cooking breakfast lunch or dinner. This house made it a great family vacation for myself my husband and my kids. We will most definitely be renting harbor house again in the future.
We stayed here for 2 nights,the view was beautiful from morning to night.House was clean and very well stocked.we had an amazing time in Newport just right up the way,and the beach is just blocks away.
