Cute, dog-friendly cottage w/ views in Nye Beach - walk to shops & the park

This dog-friendly Newport cottage offers a comfy atmosphere, ocean views, and immediate access to Nye Beach. It's an ideal choice for solo travelers, couples wanting to get away for a romantic weekend, or a small family with one child.

Just a few blocks off Highway 101, this home is located right in the desirable Nye Beach neighborhood, where you'll find lots of shops and eateries. The oceanfront Don Davis Park is only two blocks away, and provides direct access to the beach via a paved trail.

The updated interior of this adorable home is quaint and cozy, yet bright and airy, featuring the original hardwood floors from 1920 (though the home was newly remodeled in 2017!) The living area has a couch and a chair for lounging while you watch the flatscreen cable TV. Use the free WiFi to locate attractions and restaurants.

Or stay in and cook up a scrumptious meal in the completely remodeled kitchen. With standard appliances, including a dishwasher, and plenty of cookware, meal prep and clean up will be a breeze. Savor a quiet dinner at the bar for two, which separates the kitchen from the living area, and listen to the peaceful sound of the ocean, visible through a kitchen window. (There's also a third chair in the bedroom for more seating.)

With a queen-size bed and a futon, this two-bedroom, one-bath home sleeps up to three guests. And one lovable canine companion (must not exceed 25 pounds) is also invited for a small nightly pet fee. The master bedroom also features a wall of shelves, offering a wide selection of books. The bathroom has a standalone shower, and this home also offers a private full-size washer and dryer for your added convenience.

Walk to the Newport Performing Arts Center and catch a show, or stroll to Don Davis State Park, and enjoy a picnic near the ocean. Browse the shops in Nye Beach, then take a break and refuel at one of the many quality restaurants in the area. With so many seafood restaurants around (and shops where you can buy the catch of the day and cook it up back in your rental's full kitchen), you'll have plenty of options.

When it's time to get out and explore a little, head to Yaquina Bay State Recreation Site for some hiking and a tour of the lighthouse. Don't miss Newport's historic bayfront, the iconic aquarium and adjacent Hatfield Marine Science Center, and the picturesque Yaquina Head Lighthouse, either!

Regardless of your intent when you come to Newport, this charming little cottage will serve you well. Between its own delightful appeal and its ultra-convenient location, you'll have everything you need for a relaxing, unforgettable Oregon Coast retreat. Reserve it today! A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

we have done our fair share of vacation rentals and this one is by far one of our favorites. I want to start off by stating the cleanliness of the cottage; it was immaculate. I was also highly impressed by it's perfect location; there is a kid friendly park right around the corner, the beach is a 2 minutes walk away, you can walk to all the shops and restaurants there in town, and there was a beautiful view of the ocean from the kitchen and bedroom windows. The only downside was that because it was close to the tourist part of town, it was a little loud at night but nothing that caused a riff in our stay. We truly loved this little beachside cottage and will be visiting again every time we come to newport!

We loved our time our time here at the crab cottage. As a family of 3, we found it in the perfect location for exploring Newport. The owners put time and effort into resources like a binder that tells you what you can do around town. They also have cookbooks for cooking local seafood and dozens of books to read while relaxing in the cozy atmosphere. The wild daisies out front were also a hit with our 5 year old. The location is noisy and relarively busy with little privacy, however it never really bothered us and simply closing the blonds made it cozier.

We loved staying at the little Crab Cottage. Great location! Loved being in walking distance to Nye Beach, restaurants and local shops! And it was a major plus they allowed our dog! We would stay here again!

Great little house in a convenient location.
Daniel W. Apr 2021
Cute cottage, well maintained and in a prime location. Home was very clean and well stocked for a multiday stay. Love the bedroom and all the books and games! Easy walking to restaurants, shops, the beach. Very cozy! Cons: situated on a very busy corner, somewhat noisy and lacks much privacy. Small bathroom with a water canon showerhead.

Super clean and amazing!

comfortable, cheery, clean, well appointed, well located. . .what's not to like?
Marc S. Mar 2021
This was a great stay. Perfect for a couple get away.
David M. Dec 2020
Close to the beach, shops, and restaurants
Nice bedroom, comfortable bed
Perfect size for me, wife, and 8 year old child
Stocked with the necessities

Cleaning people weren't thorough. Lots of dog hair on the area rugs, futon, and even on spare blankets. My daughter pointed out what appeared to be dog poop on our bedspread, so we washed it before we ever slept in it. Vacuum provided needs upgraded.
Side room with futon was by the front door, and daughter was scared to sleep by herself there, so she slept in our room.
Unhappy with how strict Vacasa is with max occupancy limits. Don't see any reason why my brother couldn't hang out with us just during one day, but they said it is strictly enforced. There was an occupancy certificate in the house stating the legal limit is 6 people, so I don't understand what the issue is. I don't know if this was an owner issue or just Vacasa's policy.

Overall, we had a great time and liked the house. Just need the housekeeper to be more thorough.
Manager response:
Hello David, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We apologize that the home was not up to our high standards of guest satisfaction and cleanliness. We have provided your valuable feedback to our local manager to address with the housekeeping team. The permit is up to to 6; however, we do have to respect the homeowner's wishes and only allow 3 people. We apologize for the inconvenience and do hope we can host you again.

We spent 2 nights in Newport and the house very comfortable and cozy. It was close to town and the beach.
Charlotte A. Oct 2020
Proximity to all that Nye beach has to offer, and it was a nice walk to the Newport Bay front. We liked the open floor plan of the kitchen, living and dining bar. The bedrooms were quiet and private. We will be visiting again for sure!
Darla O. Sep 2020
This house was very clean which is important to me. As a property manager I set the bar pretty high. The location has beach views and easy access. Nye beach 2 blocks away. The 2nd bedroom has a futon only so you might consider it a one bedroom. Would recommend

The house was tidy and in very close proximity to beach, shopping and restaurants.
Henry K. Jan 2020
The owners have created an extremely comfortable and pleasant cottage very close to the water. I was able to enjoy all parts of the nearby Nye Beach area, even in the driving rain. The cottage had everything I needed and more. And what makes this even more special is that the book authored by one of the owners, with its incredibly moving story, is available to read.
Maureen S. Sep 2019
We had an amazing time at the Crab Cottage. We could see the ocean from the kitchen window, and even saw whales every day. The cottage has everything you would ever need, and always so clean. This was our 2nd year to visit Newport and we were NOT disappointed. The new recliner was a wonderful addition for us.
We even got to meet the Captain of the Timmy Boy when the boat came in to dock. We would love to return!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Crab Cottage. The location is great and even the peekaboo view of the ocean was sweet. There is a little street noise at night but not enough to keep us from staying here again. I love clean and this cottage fits my first criteria of being spotless. Somethings need fixing like the window near the refrigerator and the bathroom blinds that don’t fit the window but over all it just feels good and homey.
Karen M. Aug 2019
Crab cottage was cute and clean and less than a five minute walk to the beach. The owners made it feel like home.
Richard S. Jul 2019
This cute cottage is in a great location. It’s very walkable to restaurants and stores. The place was very clean and comfortable.
Wendy R. Jul 2019
The Crab Cottage is a comfortable, clean, and homey. It is located within walking distance from the ocean, restaurants, and nifty shops!
Barbara W. May 2019
I felt right at home when I walked in. It was thoughtfully put together and very clean. Love the location!!
Jackson C. Mar 2019
Super! Outstanding Location! As clean as we have ever experienced
Dora S. Oct 2018
This remodeled cottage was perfect for a couple or small family. It was clean and the location was wonderful.
Maureen S. Aug 2018
Everything about this cottage was exceptional! It was clean, comfortable and cozy. We saw numerous whales blowing just by looking out of the kitchen window. Appliances, dishes and utensils were top-rate. We want to return often!!
Douglas B. Jul 2018
This house was perfect for a four night mini-vacation for my daughter and I. Locale was a
couple blocks from ocean and near amenities- restaurants and ice cream shop 😊! Place was clean and waves were perfect to fall asleep to.
Michelle W. Jun 2018
You can walk to everything. Great location on Nye Beach.
Paulette B. May 2018
This cottage had all we needed and more. Bright, clean, convenient, comfortable,Crab Cottage was just perfect for us. We woke to the beauty of the Pacific, walked to the Don Davis Memorial Park and on to the beach, walked to performances at the Newport Performing Arts Center, walked to restaurants and fun boutique shopping; car not needed!
Michelle F. Apr 2018
Cute house with a great location. We love the NYE Beach area. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Tara B. Apr 2018
This cottage was a perfect getaway for our family for a Spring Break trip! Couldn't of been happier with the property!!
Dawn N. Mar 2018
This little house is super clean with an extremely comfortable bed. Right across the street from the Performing Arts Center and on a main street, there was some traffic noise that died down at night, but I imagine that could be an issue in warm weather with the windows open, or during performances that went on into the evening.

Very tastefully decorated, with photographs and other artwork. The furniture was comfortable and there is an amazing collection of books and games in the bedroom! There is a view of the ocean from the kitchen window, and the location in Nye Beach is convenient to shopping, the beach, and many good restaurants!

The only negative was the non-ADA toilet which was a disappointment in this accessible unit. Also, be aware that there is no table at which to eat, only 3 chairs to eat at the counter.

We would definitely recommend this unit and hope to visit again in the future!

If you are in Newport and want a place to stay for a few nights, the Crab Cottage in Nye Beach is the place. Everything is literally in walking distance - cafes, shopping, and the beach.
Sean F. Feb 2018
House was well set up with amenities and had everything we needed. We would stay here again.
Maryanne P. Jan 2018
I spent a week at Crab Cottage in January and loved it. I was writing much of the time but I also went to see a fantastic play at the theatre across the street, as well as enjoyed eating dinner out at some of the local restaurants. The beach down the street is gorgeous.
Faith H. Jan 2018
Clean and cute
Melanie B. Sep 2017
This place was pristine! And I can be a little picky... The weirdo in me was pleased with the arrangement of kitchen utensils laid out carefully, side by side. Like I said, this place was CLEAN! And I loved the book selection on the bookshelves in the bedroom. The location was perfect. We walked everywhere. We were in Newport to see the eclipse and we viewed it from the front porch. The hosts even provided a couple beach chairs so we had a great set up. There is a view of the beach from the kitchen window and you're literally only 2 blocks away. I could go on and on. I'll probably think of more after submitting my review. We would definitely stay here again if we're lucky enough to make it back to this beautiful place!
Bill P. Aug 2017
