Great get away house!!!!

This house was amazing. Being able to bring our dog with full fenced in yard was perfect. Stormy the whole time there which was perfect for laying around relazing and playing cards. Anyone looking for a large house get away this is the place. Close to casino which was a huge perk. Will be back again and again that is for sure. Thank you for offering your rental home for an amazing few days.

Great family beach house

My family and I stayed at the beach retreat house and had a great time! My 2 kids ( 3 year old, 20 month old) enjoyed running around the back yard and playing on the swing and slide. This house is close to the beach as well, which is a plus. We used the big screen to watch the Seahawks, and then enjoyed the hot tub afterwards. Everything was comfortable. The house has clean towels, plenty of cooking supplies, Even baby seats and utensils. The place is spacious so we only needed to use downstairs, it is great for crowds. We used the BBQ also, which worked great. This place is close to safeway, Mcdonalds, dollar tree, casino, Etc. Steve was easy to work with and a friendly guy. We will return. Brown family.

Great Family House

This house was perfect for our family. Our daughters loved the tree fort and swings. We enjoyed the hot tub every night. Close to the beach. Plus we got to bring our dogs which made it perfect! We will be back.

Wonderful Rental

After reading all the prior reviews I had high expectations and they were all met. This is a very well priced vacation rental with very clean and comfortable rooms. The kitchen is the most well equipped kitchen as far as items like spoons, ladels, wine opener even a muddler for the mojito's. The only issue I had was a small one. When we first arrived the house was a sauna. We had to turn on the fan and open windows and then leave for a few hours to let it cool off. After that there were no problems. Couldn't figure out how to work the hot tub and Steve answered on the 1st phone call and walked me through it. Living room is huge and spacious. Overall a very good rental and we look forward to renting in the future.

Owner's reply:

Thanks for venturing up Utah & sharing a great review on our "Beach Retreat" house for this 12 nt July visit. Following your visit, a new queen mattress was added to upstairs bdrm along with other new household items. We hope to see you back for another lengthy visit.

Love it!

We've stayed at the larger property in the past but opted for the smaller house since we were going with a smaller party. The house was great but the biggest perk for us was the large fenced yard and the huge playset. The kids loved the swings and we enjoyed many meals outside at the picnic table. The house was within walking distance to the beach but with young ones, we opted to drive. Great home for entertaining or letting the kids run and play, the space makes it very peaceful and quiet. Looking forward to our stay at the larger house in November but would definitely stay at this house in the future.

Beach retreat

great location close to the beach and close to shopping and Casino . My family really enjoyed the house and the game room and the hot tub was really nice in the evening time and it was really nice having the dog there.

Fun Beach House

This house is the best we have rented in lincoln city so far. Plenty of room inside and the yard is where its at. Perfect fireplace with enough seating, great sized deck with a neat kids play structure to keep them occupied. Casino is right there so you can stumble home if need be. Sleeps enough people so you can bring everyone.

Our fablous family 2 day stay!

Whow what a great trip! We where here for my grandaughters wedding at the beach at Fogarty State Park only a 20 minute drive.We had part of our family and dogs with us! Something for everyone at this great house! Close to the beach,mall,and casnio! We had a barbacue the 1st night,walk on the beach and a camp fire! In all my 70 years it was the best place for family I have ever stayed ! Home away from home! And did I say we even had a visit from a live deer! I feed it an apple! Steve is easy to work with , very accommodating! Would highly recommend this rental! Wished we could have stayed longer! Can't wait to see Steve's finished re-modeling project! Only, negative thing I found was no instructions on how to turn on the T.V., with all the modern wi-fi,games netflex music Hard for old people that aren't knowlegeable! But my kids knew how ! All was great! Thanks again Steve hope we can come back in the fall!

Fun Family Getaway

My family and I wanted to get away for a couple of days and have some fun together. After searching many websites, I came across My favorite beach house and instantly got excited. The pictures and description were a fit for everyone in our family. There is so much to do. Beach, hot tub, pool, foosball, air hockey, huge play yard, toys, lots of space in the house and every gadget you could possibly need. It honestly felt like home away from home. The owner is super nice and very pleasent to work with. The garage conversion is coming along very well and we are super excited to go back!!! We found our summer retreat and couldn't be more happy.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

Talk about an “Incredible Over The Top” review for our “Beach Retreat” house. I hopped the garage conversion would have been done by summer, but will resume this fall/winter for this space, another bdrm & bathrm. Thanks again.

Lovely Stay at the Beach Retreat

We rented this beach house in Lincoln City for my birthday weekend. We shared the house with my parents and our two grown children. We really appreciated being able to bring our two dogs, who had a fabulous time running on the beach and playing in the waves. It was wonderful to have a completely fenced yard for the dogs. After playing on the beach we were able to hose off the dogs and let them dry in the backyard. We used the hot tub several times and we really appreciated that the owner put fresh water in on the day of our arrival. The grown kids, 24 & 27, did not find the bunk beds or twin bed very comfortable so they both opted to sleep on the two couches in the living room. The bunk/twin beds are probably fine for children, but not comfortable for adults. The beach was handy about a 5 - 10 minute walk depending on your speed. We enjoyed the peek-a-boo view of the ocean from the kitchen table. The microwave worked well but we could not locate any glass serving dishes for cooking veggies, etc. in. All the bowls in the cupboard were plastic. Also, bring your own foil and plastic wrap as none is provided. We did appreciate having a brand new sponge, dish scraper and paper towels provided. There are two washer & dryers which made it nice for washing towels and a comforter at the same time. The new addition looks like it's coming along nicely and it will be a great addition to have a second full bathroom. We didn't have any little kids, but the play structure looked amazing. The house was cozy and warm and the living room was comfy and had a very nice big screen, high definition TV with Netflix provided for free! There were also nice TV's in both of the upstairs bedrooms. Wifi was provided with a code, so we could keep up on work and facebook. We really enjoyed listening to the rain at night on the upstairs bedroom roof. The location was great at the North end of Lincoln City. The casino is only seven blocks away and we had a nice buffet dinner there Saturday night. I would recommend this house for your next vacation.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

Thanks for review for this 4 nt stay at our "Beach Retreat" house. I'll look at updating the mattresses for the bunk bed room upon finishing the garage conversion to new rec room w/sheet rock work just about complete. I'll add plastic wrap & more glass serving dishes to the houses as well. Thanks again & hope for a future return.

Wonderful House!

My girlfriend and I decided to take a little trip last year and found this place online. We needed a place that would take our dog and had a fenced yard, which made the house perfect. It even had a raccoon or something that tortured the dog for 2 days. When we got there, it was very clean. Newer appliances were nice. Gas fireplace to keep us warm, and a big TV in front of the couches to snuggle on. We also made use of the air hockey and fusball tables. Outside had a nice deck with plenty of seats, fenced yard, play structure for kids, a grill, and of course the hot tub that was well maintained. Plenty of sleeping room for many people if needed. The master bedroom had some windows that would have been great for star watching if it hadn't been cloudy (Oregon beaches...). Steve is a wonderful guy to work with and is very quick to respond to any questions you may have. I feel the price on the house is quite reasonably priced compared to everything else in the area, especially with all that we were looking for. Perfect distances to shopping, casino, and the beach! In the future im not even going to waste my time looking for a different place to rent. This is it!

Owner's reply:

Not sure what else I can add to this "Over- The-Top" review for the "Beach Retreat" house. Thanks again for this awesome review & even booking your next trip.

Perfect family spot near the beach!

Absolutely loved the beach retreat and will be back again ! It was fun doe both Adults and childern ! The play structure outside was probably the ebay thing about the house when u have 4 kids with lots of energy! Close to the beach and caSino , we were able to celebrate my 28th birthday right in town! Loves the multiple beds and Netflix for the family to watch. It was the perfect setting for movie nights and just being able to hang out . Very cozy and I having the play room with the pool table was great for the guys while the girls lounged and has a drink . Can't wait to book another weekend at the beach retreat and have already told family and friends about it!

Cozy Family Christmas Holiday

Our family gathered here from CA and Oregon and enjoyed a snugly warm and comfortable holiday. The spa, fireplace, table games, multiple TV's, internet access and the Christmas tree all provided a week of fun for all. The kitchen was well equipped so that making a full on Christmas dinner was possible. This was our second Christmas spent at this house.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

What a "GREAT" review after spending another Christmas & full week at our beach house. My family appreciates making the “Beach Retreat" your one stop destination choice of all the beach homes to choose from & venturing up from California to the Lincoln City beach community. Thanks again & hope to see you back next X’mas with another bedroom in place, another full bathroom w/custom tile shower, & new rec room w/a larger pool table including 2 more couches w/another 50” TV.

Great New Years trip!

Our stay at the beach retreat was wonderful! The house was a decent size for our group, although 2 full baths and 1 more bed would have been perfect. The house was well maintained and most of what we needed was supplied. There were a couple issues that needed some attention. The stove had one burner that would not light without a match, the oven wouldnt reach full temperature and the microwave, even though it worked had a piece inside of it by the light that sparked and caught fire. Other than that, our stay was alot of fun! Would highly recommend.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

Thanks for visiting our "Beach Retreat" house for this 3 nt News Years Holiday wknd visit. We appreciate the review. There is a garage conversion underway to add another full bathroom & another bedroom including a rec room w/vaulted ceilings, can lights, & another large screen TV w/more couches. The pool table will be replaced w/a larger one as well. Insulation & sheetrock planned to go up this month. A service call was made to check out the stove & microwave will be replaced. Thanks again & would love to see you back for another trip to the coast.

Great Yard for our Dogs

We loved the Beach Retreat. It was perfect for our family vacation with our two German Shepherds. The fenced yard was so nice and made it simple to clean up after our girls. The nearby beach access lead to a section of beach that was not overcrowded and was very good for ball fetching. The next time we stay at the Beach Retreat we will bring our two little great nieces so they can enjoy all of the kids activities that are included. There is a tree house and swings and a slide outside and a pool table, hockey table and foosball table inside. Also video games and a huge TV. We would definitely recommend the Beach Retreat to other families.

Perfect Family Beach Home!

Our family of 5 rented this house for our first family vacation to the Oregon coast. We couldn't have asked for a better fit for us. We have three kids ages 6, 4, and 2 years and we were all so comfortable in this house. There was so much for the kids from toys, games, to even plates, cups, and silverware specifically for young kids. The play area in the back was convenient for the kids and is was especially nice that the yard was fenced in. Once the kids were tucked into bed my husband and I could enjoy the hot tub and watch a movie relaxing on the comfy couches. It was also convenient to the beach. The kitchen was stocked with anything you could ever need. We will definitely rent this house again on our future visits along with recommending it to family and friends.

Great house for families

The house is set up well for large or multiple families to enjoy their time at the beach. Gas fireplace, hot tub, great TV system and large children's play area are nice additions to the house. The owner has worked hard to improve the property but it is an going process. The owner was responsive when we contacted him about a problem another guest had caused and he went to the house after we left to see for himself and was taking step to fix it ASAP. The house is on a quiet street and a good partial view of the ocean and close to the casino without being to close. The beds are comfortable and the house is clean. We will defiantly be back.

Best Vacation!!

My family and I had a fun and relaxing vacation at the Beach Retreat! The kids didn't even want to leave the house to go to the beach :). Our kids ranged from 4-12 years old and there was something for all of them. The house had everything you would need including extra pillows, blankets and toilet paper. All of which I packed for just in case. The owners obviously know what a family would need in case of anything and it was much appreciated. All the beds were very comfortable. My twin 4 year olds always end up in bed with me in the morning, but not the whole vacation! They slept on the bunk beds and did not wake up during the night the whole 5 days we stayed. The house is close to everything and we enjoyed the quiet neighborhood. My family and I will definitely rent this house again.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

Thanks for the "Super" review for our "Beach Retreat" house for this 5 nt Aug. We would definitely love to have your family back again & should have many additional updates finalized by then.

We first visited this rental last year and I for one was very please. Being used to condos I was a bit nervous. However all of my expectations were met and exceeded. We arrived in the driveway and the kids immediately yelled, "We're home!" That the way we feel about this place. It truly is our Home away from Home. It is comforting to know your kids can go play outside and not have to hover. They are picky eaters so I cook mostly while on vacation. I don't have to pack a ton because there is a laundry room. However there are plenty of awesome restaurants in the area. It is all you could ask for and much more. We are going back again next year! Thanks to Steve we have a great Home to come to. He is constantly upgrading and doing improvements so it is always a wonderful surprise to see what has been improved to an already great place.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

Kudos on such awesome review for our family friendly “Beach Retreat” house. I’m committing myself to finalize the garage conversion this winter to provide even more space within the future rec room. It will also allow for another couple guests with the additional bedroom/full bathroom. Thanks again & hope to show case this improvement for your next visit.

best place to take the whole family

We have taken a number of vacations on the Oregon Coast, and this has been our favorite house thus far. It is absolutely perfect if you have children. We had three with us and they were all happy and entertained during our stay. From the awesome tree house and sandbox to the living room that my kids dubbed "the game room" to the short stroll to the beach, the kids will have enough to do that the adults will get to relax a bit too. We are booking again for next year.

beach house fun

This was the first time I have rented a house for vacation and I have to say it was the best choice our family could have made. The house was amazing. The kids really enjoyed having a laege yard and play place to run around in. the house had everything we needed and more. We will definitely be back and recommend this house to people we know

Our experience

My family had a blast! Even when it was raining, we had so much fun inside the house. It is very family friendly with lots to do. And the tree fort was the best! My kids were asking if we could live there forever....I don't think you could get a bigger compliment than that from little ones! We will be back next year for sure.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

I glad the kids enjoyed the play structure. I still have plans on expanding it to something even more unique. Thanks again for visiting our "Beach Retreat" house & we hope to see you back for a future visit.

Great house for kids!!

Such a great house for kids! Loved the yard for kids & dogs! Hot tub is a great feature as well! The house is a little far for younger kids to walk back/forth from the beach though. DVD player didnt work and Xbox wouldn't play DVDs. Not so impressed with the cleaning person when we got there (left garbage in the driveway & a sack of dirty towels in the front hall). Definitely a house we will go back to for family vacations!

Sweet Beach Cottage

This beach cottage is an excellent place to stay especially if you have children. The fenced yard is great for the kids and dogs to play and what a wonderful play structure!! The kids were totally entertained and weren't begging to go to the beach the whole time. The hot tub was such a bonus, so relaxing after walking back from the beach. Being so close to the casino we were lucky to get a huge fireworks show right from the living room! We had a great time and will definitely be back!!

Fun vacation on the Oregon coast

Our family of 6 stayed at the Beach Retreat in June 2013 and had a great time. The kids loved the hot tub, foosball and pool tables, being able to walk to the beach, and cable in the upstairs bedrooms. The house was older, but we enjoyed having 3 bedrooms and the option of having a kitchen we could cook in. The owner was easy to work with and we had a great time on the Oregon coast! Our favorite beach was Roads End just past the beach house.

Thanks for choosing your vacation stay at our "Beach Retreat" house & taking the time to post a nice review. We would love to have your family back again for a future stay with more updates in place by then.

fun for the whole family

we had a wonderful time! although the weather was great, this house is perfect for when the weather isn't so great as there are tons of things to do for the whole family. Of course the hot tub made the trip the best for mom and dad!

Owner's reply:

My family & I thank you for taking the time to post a 5 Star Review for our “Beach Retreat” house while booking another stay for this August for 3 more nts. I had hoped to have more of the garage conversion in done before the summer rental season set in, but this will now push into the fall. See you in a couple months.

Great family beach house!

I have stayed in this cottage on sever occasions. For birthday celebrations, and a relaxing get away with the family. Its a great size with lots to offer. I 100 percent recommend this beach cottage. My family and I enjoy it every time. Lots of laughs and good memories. We especially enjoy the hot tub, the pool table and outside space. Its just a short walk to the beach, and the grocery stores and casino is close by. I will be a 7th time guest, and I plan to come back again and make more memories.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

What an “A+” 5 Star Review for our "Beach Retreat" house for this last 3 nt stay. We are thrilled you have made the “Beach Retreat" your one stop destination choice of all the beach homes to choose from while yet again making another reservation for this late April. The new high efficiency gas furnace will be in place by then, however the garage conversion rough in work will still be on going for the new rec room, bathroom, & another bedroom. Thanks again & see you next month.

Best Beach Vacation Home We Have Stayed at So Far!

We were very happy with all the amenities in the home, the cleanliness, and the additional features outside like the hammock, fenced yard, and bbq for outdoor play with small children. The inside was spacious and comfortable, I don't think the home was missing anything we needed. The extra washer and dryer was a plus as well. I would recommend this home to anyone, and its just a few steps from the beach which was really nice as well, we will be renting again in the future!

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

We really appreciate taking the time to post a "5 Star Review" for our "Beach Retreat" house & now reserving our larger "Ocean Overlook" for a 3 nt May visit. Both houses have something different to offer, yet some amenities are similar with 1,000 watt home theater systems, large HD TV's, gas fireplaces, hot tubs, & large play structure w/tube slides/swings. We are looking forward to see how the larger house experience at the "Ocean Overlook" will compare to the "Beach Retreat" cottage experience as both houses are only a couple blocks from each other..

Perfect for a family

This is a neat house. The hot tub is awesome and so is the fenced backyard with with the play structure. It was a big hit w/ my nearly 3 year old son. There are toys and games for kids. The large family room is great with the fire place. You can crank up the fire and see the whole yard. The house is not in a busy area and you can walk to beach access. It is not far! The kitchen is stocked with any cooking appliance or gadget one could need and there are plenty of dishes. The house is stocked with lots of baby/toddler necessities like a crib and booster seat. The view of the ocean and beach is okay but it wasn't the reason we choose this house. We wanted the hot tub! I gave 4 stars because I feel the house needs a good deep cleaning; it's not filthy but I thought it could be cleaner. All the linens were clean and there's plenty of extra towels.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

Thanks for venturing west from Montana for this 3 nt midweek February visit & posting a review. My workers & I had 4 busy days of rerouting the main water line, crawl space work, plumbing/drain line rough in for new bathroom in garage conversion space, & prep work for new high efficiency gas furnace, cleaner may have been overwhelmed & short on time prepping house for your arrival. We will make sure to provide ample time for more cleaning for future guests. Once this project is complete, I can get hot tub roof built so a newer & larger hot tub can be placed. Thanks again & hope to see you back.

This house is Awsome

This was our first time staying in this house but it wont be our last. This house is one of the best we have ever stayed in. It was clean, well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. The gran kids loved the play structure and the adults loved the hot tub. Everyone loved our little outdoor racoon friends. The were fun to watch as they begged at the back door for food. The onwers of this house are very easy to work with and great to rent from. Thanks again Steve for a great weekend. The Gardner and Richardson family.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

What an "Fantastic" 5 Star Review for our "Beach Retreat" house for this 2 nt Feb wknd visit. Sounds like some guests are feeding the local raccoons if they are coming to the deck space? Thanks again & I'm sure the raccoons also hope to see you back for a return visit.

This is the second time my family has stayed here and we loved it even more the second time!! Multiple updates have been made that just improved to the already amazing place! The owners are super easy to work with, the house is spotless upon arrival and the location is perfect! My family will definitely book another vacation here!

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

We really appreciate revisiting our "Beach Retreat" house for this 3 night February visit & hope you continue to make this home your one stop Lincoln City destination choice. I'm still hoping to have new rec room, bedroom, & bathroom in place within garage conversion this spring before heavy summer season rentals kick in. Thanks again & hope to see you back to showcase these finished improvements.

Great House!

I have stayed at this house twice. Once with my husband and once for a girls weekend. This house was great for both occasions. Very kid friendly, lots of toys and room for them to play both indoors and out. Great, close beach access, we had a bonfire on the beach for girls weekend and we all felt very safe walking back to the house in the dark. The large dining table is great for playing games. We also really enjoyed the hot tub, tv's, and game system. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking a great meal. House is clean and well cared for. Wish we were able to get away and stay here more often!!

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

What an "Over the Top" review for our beach house for your last two stays. My family appreciates making the “Beach Retreat" your one stop destination choice of all the beach homes to choose from. Thanks again & see you in May for your next 3 nt reservation.

wonderful winter stay

Wonderful three night stay with wife and two kids(6 & 2yr olds) .1> Very friendly, quick responding and helpful owner! 2> Great yard: large custom-built tree house structure with lots of swings! 3>Hot tub on deck: with view of ocean in distance! 4>Home entertainment system that rocks! 5>Super convenient location: feels like off beaten path yet close to beaches and shopping!

My family & I appreciate your review for this 3 nt wkday December stay for the "Beach Retreat" house. Hopefully the garage conversion that is underway for a 4rth bdrm, another bathroom, & larger rec room will be finished before your next visit. Thanks again & we hope to see you back soon.

Awesome place to stay.

This was our second stay at the retreat. The first time it was just us & our dog. This time we included friends & family. The kids absolutely the outdoor play equipment. The adults took care of the hot tub in the evening. The new BBQ area was also great. We plan on staying at the retreat again in the near future.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

My family & I appreciate your review for our "Beach Retreat" house & lining up your 3rd trip this March 2013. We especially appreciate all our returning guests making this home their one stop Lincoln City destination. We look foreword to your next visit & hope to have even more updates by then as the garage conversion has resumed again this week to add another bathroom, small bedroom & vaulted ceilings for new rec room space. Thanks again.

Harvey Buck

Plan on coming back every year!

My wife and I came here for our anniversary in November last year and loved it so much that we're returning again this year. It's definitely more room then we need for the two of us, but we love the location, the quiet neighborhood, and the 50" plasma TV with the home theater system. I'm sure the beach is great, but we're snuggling in for these winter stays with videos and hot cocoa. Steve is really great to work with, and everything went very smoothly. We'll be coming back every year if possible!

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

Thanks’ for posting a great 5 Star review for your last stay & reserving 4 midweek November dates once again. Not mentioned in your review was the home theater system that may have given you grief on your last visit either fixed itself or was updated a short time later. Otherwise a new theater system will be installed in advance of your stay as it appears you enjoy your movie watching as much as I use too before the kids came along. Thanks again & see you next month.

Amazing and wonderful!

We visited the beach retreat at the end of September for three days and I could have stayed forever. The quaint town of Lincoln City is amazing and the house was the icing on top of the cake. Not only was it spacious but the backyard was incredible and gave our children plenty of room to run and play! We will definitely be visiting again soon. Steve (the owner) was very on top of things and our transaction was smooth and painless. I would highly recommend staying here. My only regret is that we didn't bring the extended family.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

Thanks’ for venturing up from Salt Lake City & selecting our "Beach Retreat" house for your 3 nt midwk September stay. Maybe by next year the garage conversion will be done for that 4rth bedroom, extra bath, & large rec room for that extended family. Thanks again for posting a great 5 Star review & hope to see you next year.

Great Fenced Yard

It was exactly as we had hoped and we are looking forward to a return visit in the future. We were very comfortable with our dogs freedom to roam the property and get some good running and play time without too much oversight. The hot tub was relaxing and refreshing and the living room was a great place to watch football. We even grilled some burgers on the fantastic outdoor gas grill. We wanted to stay longer but alas our schedule did not allow it this time. We tried to leave the property as clean or better than we found it. Thanks again and we are looking on our calendar for the next time we might be able to get away.

My family & I thank you for taking the time to post an awesome 5 Star Review for this 2 nt wkday September visit for our “Beach Retreat” house. We would love to have you & your dogs back for an even longer visit.

Beach retreat

We recently stayed at the beach retreat in Lincoln city. We found the key upon arrival and the house was clean. We enjoyed the large fenced in yard, hot tub and play structure. The overall vibe of the house is very relaxing. It was a perfect family atmosphere. We plan on coming back as soon as we can.

We'll keep coming back!

This is our 6th + (I lost count) time returning to the Beach Retreat. We have been so overjoyed with each and every one of our stays. We were so impressed with the beautiful new deck (& bbq) and the cool new play structure. The new gas range was a real treat; we estimated it actually cut our cooking time in almost half, which meant we had more time to sit and relax. The beds are all very comfortable. The space in the home is astounding. The home is so cool we almost don't want to leave to head down to the beach. It's been such a treat and a great find. We like to go down to the beach at least 3 times a year and the very reasonable price of this place makes that possible. Each time we bring a new guest with us they almost immediately ask for information on how to rent the place. It's funny to watch them go through the house the same as we did when we had our first trip here, they look around at the size and amenities in amazement & are stunned at how awesome and "beachy" this place is. It's a Sweet Beach Retreat each and every time for sure!!! Thanks a million, again, to Steve & family! We will be coming back again soon.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

Thanks a million for your totally awesome review of our "Beach Retreat" house & making it a one stop destination choice these last several years. On the horizon is the future hot tub roof & continuation of garage conversion. We really appreciate your visits as I see how many projects I can complete before your next arrival & enhance your stay even more. Thanks again.

Excellent Family retreat

Stop Looking now, pick this Beach retreat house if you want the perfect place for your family. My 3 year old granddaughter felt like she had her own private park in the large backyard that featured a huge wood structure that had a winding slide, swings, bars, disc's. A climbing wall and yes even a hammack. The hot tub was clean and hot and wonderful. The Gas bbq has a direct line so no running out of gas. The house has toys, books games, air hocky, foo's ball, pool table, washer and dryer, game boxes with tons of games and as if that is not enough there is wireless internet as well. A burning pit for hotdogs and or marshmellows, 2 picknic tables. Ocean view, walking beach access. A fenced yard for your dog. A well equiped kitchen, which even had dishes, silverware and cups for a small child and booster chairs too. My 4 month old grandson slept in the crib in one of the upstairs bedrooms. The only thing that I would like is a tv in the downstairs bedroom, because it's the one I always end up in. But there are TV's in both the other rooms. Don't pass this one up. It is fantastic.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

Talk about an "Over the Top" review for our "Beach Retreat" house for your 4 nt Labor Day September stay & 2nd trip back. I'll see about adding another LCD/Plasma TV to this bdrm as a wall mount in the near future. Thanks again & we hope to see you back for another visit.

AWESOME House!!!

This house was GREAT for our family vacation! Short walk to the Ocean and the Casino, plenty of room for the 6 of us plus my 5 year old Grandson! The partial view of the ocean was fantastic, relaxing in the hot tub looking at the ocean, fantastic. There was plenty of things to keep my Grandson entertained as well; X-Box, Pool Table, Air Hockey, a HUGE bucket of toys, the tree house, slide and swings. He had a wonderful time! The owner is very friendly and accommodating as well. We will stay here again on our next trip to the coast!! THANK YOU!!!!

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

What a fantastic "5 Star Review" for our "Beach Retreat" house for your 1 week August stay. I strive to keep the kids entertained, which in turn allows the parents to relax even more. Thanks again & we hope to see you back next year to showcase even more goodies & improvements.

Our Stay!

We had a great time at this property! House was big and had lots of space. Loved the big yard and was great for the kids. Owner was easy to work with and was very workable. The place was private and within walking distance to the beach which we loved!!! Would definately stay again!

A family getaway

We are return customers and we really enjoyed all the new improvements. My grand daughter loved that the play area was completed she spent a lot of time on it. My husband loved the gas BBQ. My grand daughter was able to see a family of deer just a few house down. I really liked sitting out on the deck in the morning and listening to the waves. Thank you once again

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

Thanks for already booking your 3rd trip back to the "Beach Retreat" house next year for 10 nts following this 2 nt Aug stay. In 2011, the big push was to build the 12' elevated play structure around several large trees with a 7' tube slide, bubble dome, & double swings. In 2012, the big project was building a new 10' x 20' deck, extending gas line for new stainless BBQ, & upgrading stove to a new stainless Jenn-Air gas downdraft slide-in range. Other minor changes included the addition of a climbing/rock wall to the play structure, a new stainless double door fridge w/water/ice, & a dedicated hot water line from tank less water heater to the hot tub for no down time for water changes between guests. This fall & winter the push will be add a roof over hot tub & continue w/garage conversion for another bdrm, bathroom, & rec room. Thanks again for posting a "5 Star Review" & making the "Beach Retreat" house your one stop Lincoln City destination

Fun rental property for the entire family

Our family had an incredible time at this rental home. We have 6 children ranging in ages from 16 to 16 months and no one was ever bored. There was an awesome yard with a slide, sand table, badminton, barbeque and a hot tub. The homes interior had lots of toys suitable for young kids and teenagers. The kitchen was excellently stocked with everything needed to cook with and there was also plenty of plastic dishware and booster seats for the toddler and baby. We loved this home! We could tell this rental owner has put a lot of time and thought into making this home an enjoyable place to stay. I hope will be able to return in the future.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

My family & I appreciate you taking time to post a really great "5 Star Review" for our Beach Retreat" house for your 4 nt June/July stay. With a 3 yr old & 6 yr old myself, it's all about keeping the kid's entertained so us parents can truly relax worry free, especially with a very large level fenced yard & large windows so we can keep an eye on them from time to time when inside. I'm really hoping to have my garage conversion mostly finalized by next Spring for an additional bedroom, another bathroom, & large rec room for additional space for the kid's to play & ability to host even more overnight guests. Thanks again & we hope to see you back for many future visits.

great place if you have kids

We recently rented this beach house. Having 4 grandkids under 10 years old, this place was perfect for us. The kids were outside from morning till dark everyday. The beach access was a nice walk for all of us to take everyday. The town was very close and offered many things to see. Although the huge flat screen t.v.'s were nice, we were outside so much that, believe it or not, the kids never even asked to watch it. (Except maybe in their room at bedtime.) Living in another state than our grandchildren, we see them once a year, and this year we were given the opportunity to bond closer. This is the first time we rented a house and after the wonderful time we had together, it will definitely not be the last. Thanks again to Steve for all the help in making arrangements. Till next year, Cheri and Dusty Humes, Taylor, Dylan,Tristan, and Landon, and of course Chris and Emileigh

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

Wow, what a great "5 Star Review" for our "Beach Retreat" house for your 5 nt July stay. I recently added within the last month a rock climbing wall, spinning wheel, bad mitten net, & drum set outside to keep the kid's entertained even more so in addition to the large play structure w/7' tube slide, various swings, & sand box. But there are more outside improvements on the horizon, including roof cover over the hot tub & another over the new stainless natural gas BBQ all to be incorporated into 10' x 20' deck added earlier this spring. Thanks again & we hope to see you back next year to showcase even more goodies.

Awesome Home!

We loved this place! It was very comfortable and clean, made us feel right at home. Large kitchen area for making meals. Large family room with comfortable space for family time.

With 14 guests, I'm not quite sure where everyone slept, but appears your group made due. Also the 4rth bedroom, additional bathroom, & large rec room area planned within the garage conversion slated to start back up this fall will better accommodate these large groups next year. We would love to have you back.

Teenage Sons Gave It an A+

We all had a good, relaxing time at the Beach Retreat house the last week in June. Our kids (seven of them, ages 13 - 28) all approved of the house. My teenage boys told me I made an "A+" choice in renting it and they aren't prone to flattery. They were happy to make use of the game tables and got the rest of us into playing too. The living room was nice and big to accommodate all of us. We all fit around the dining table too! It was nice to be able to walk to the beach from the house. We enjoyed the yard and deck during the good weather and grilled our dinner three of the four nights. We didn’t use the hot tub this time, but we probably will when we come again. I definitely recommend the house! It is in good location and is well equipped for staying and playing.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

Oh, what I would have given for some “A+” in my college days. I’m glad the “Beach Retreat” was a big hit for your 4 nt end of the month June stay and appreciate this top notch 5 Star Review. Thanks again & we hope to see you back for a future visit.

Perfect Retreat

We booked this property for same day rental and it could not have gone smoother. The owner made the process so simple. We called around 10 am and were allowed an early check so, we were all settled and unpacked by 3pm. I have to say the yard is fabulous. It was like a secret garden. Lush plants, trees and if you have kids... this will be paradise. There is a play area with a slide, hanging swings and even a sand box. The beach was just a short walk away. This property had everything. Very large family space for relaxing and eating as well as a lot of kitchen work space. We will definitely rent again.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

,I as the dutiful maid of honor, hosted the bachelorette party to end all bachelorette parties at this kick-ass house. Yes, its great for kids, but even more amazing for grown adults who like to party silly. The hot tub is huge, feels amazing, and lights up like Tron! The loopy slide is super fun! They have a great little fire pit and a big BBQ. The living room and sound system are perfect for late night dance party. And the kitchen is massive and well equipped for drinking and feasting. The beach is just minutes away on foot. I couldn't have planned it better. We all had the best time. EVER! Thank you for the perfect righteous babe bachelorette party. We will never forget it.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

Talk about an “over the top kick in” review for the “Beach Retreat” house; not sure what else I can add in response to your 2 nt May wknd stay. I have since added a new stainless steel double door fridge this week & will be installing new stainless steel JENN-AIR gas range next week for even better cooking. Thanks again & we hope to see you back for another smashing good time.

My children loved this house

This house is very comfortable and in a great location. Beach access is a bit of a jaunt but good exercise. The house is especially great for kids. A tree house, swings, slide, sand box and oodles of toys and books. The beds are very comfortable and the view from the dining room is lovely. My only complaint is the skylights in the master bedroom rendered sleep past sun up virtually impossible.

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

My family & I appreciate your review for this 2 nt wknd May stay. I will see if vertical blinds are available for the two skylights to allow guests to darken the room at their choosing or allow others to leave as intended for the views & additional lighting. We hope to have you back again for a future visit where you can sleep uninterrupted as late as you want.

Favorite Beach House Rental!!

The owner (Steve) has taken this house to the next level! If you are planning on renting a house and have kids, then this is your place. Nicely landscaped fully fenced in yard with huge play structure and swing set. Nice deck w BBQ and Hot tub. Inside there are TV's in just about every room. Bunk beds for the kids. There is a playroom with foosball, pingpong, airhockey tables for the kids and tons of toys to play with. Xbox's w games to play. In the garage is a pool table. The house is close to the beach and casino. I plan on staying at this house every summer for now on. I cant wait to see what Steve is going to add on next! I give it a 10 out of 10!! Thanks Steve!

Spring Break 2012

This was our families first time staying at a beach house and we loved this house. The kids loved the air hockey table and the pool table. My husband and I loved the bbq and the hot tub. The beds were so very comfortable. Loved that we went for a walk and there were 4 deers a house down beautiful to see we walked down the opposite way and watched the sunset on the ocean. It was a quick 5 minute walk to the beach and we also walked to safeway which took us about ins with our 3 kids and dog. Steve was very accomadating and we will definetly stay again can't wait to see the future upgrades! The Reeves

Perfect Beach House!

Our family really enjoyed this house and everything that it had to offer! The kids loved the play structure as well as the game tables inside, and all the toys! We al;l enjoyed the hot tub as well. I didn't find that it was lacking anything. The beds were very comfortable!! We plan on returning in June :) As well as every time we go to Lincoln City from here on out! You were great to work with Steve!! Thank you so much!

My family & I appreciate your great review for this 4 nt midwk March stay. An additional thanks for allowing us to finish play structure steps & new 10' x 20' deck not yet pictured after the official 4:00 pm check in time. I had hoped to have new BBQ & hot tub roofs in place too, but this will have to wait until the next trip. Thanks again & we hope to see you back for a future visit this summer.

The Dalles, OR

great vacation home

Not only was this a wonderful place to visit, dealing with the owner was a good experience. He was helpful & kind & one can tell he enjoys his beach home and renting it out. My only complaint has nothing with the home, just the city for it's lack of care of the road!!! Enormout potholes!!! I would love to stay there again in the near future. We might even get to use the hot tub! Too cold, & with the hail & snow, it was not too conducive to using it. We had a ball playing games while it stormed. Watching the stormy ocean was also a plus. Love the beach!!!

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

My family & I appreciate your review for this 2 nt midweek Feb stay. In the next couple trips over there when I have my trailer, I will pick up some gravel & fill the worst of the pot holes as I did last year. I also plan on building a roof cover over the hot tub to minimize the effects of coastal stormy weather. We hope to have you back again for a future visit.

Needs Improvment

I will begin with the pros. Steve is very involved with the rental. Extremely helpful, very organized and made it easy to communicate with him. The house is big, and in a great location and a great price. The cons, it needs some major cleaning. We left the house cleaner then upon arrival. When we first got there, the carpets had just been cleaned so there was a funky odor. The base boards are dirty, I went to safeway and bought bleach cleaner as well as sanitary wipes to clean the kitchen and bathroom tub. We had to vacuum up the months old cobwebs that were all over the place. When the rest of our party arrived, we went to use the air mattress and it was broken. Then the hide a bed, also broken! We ended up putting the mat on the floor and sleeping. Hopefully, those items can get fixed and this house could be fabulous~ Look forward to seeing what the future remodel does for this home!!!

Owner's reply:

Thanks for posting a review for your last wknd 3 nt Feb stay. I have used the same cleaner for the last 4 years who will go above & beyond while trying to keep cleaning costs as low as possible for current & future guests after each stay. I will have her do a deep clean & schedule carpet cleaning when more than 1 day until next arrival to minimize moisture left behind. Aero bed air mattress is provided for use for unplanned guests & is not checked after each guest's stay. I rely on guests to inform me of some items when their operation stops as noticed or if uncertain how to use. The cleaner verified hide a bed was in working condition. I will provide a manual on how to open for future guests to use correctly & replace air mattress. Thanks again & we hope to see you back for a future visit.

winter getaway

Place was old, but well kept. Only had one shower and not a great sleeping quarters for a group of adults. It was set up more for kids. Pool table and both foosball tables were not in very good condition. Smelled musty, but it was clean and there were nice touches added to make it more personal. We probably will not stay there again unless we have less people. Nice easy walk to the casino. Owner was great to work with! Very accomodating.

Thanks for taking time to post a review for your last wknd 2 nt Feb stay. I was sorry to hear you dislocated your shoulder snowboarding & would not be able to compete in the archery tournament in LC indicating you wanted to cancel your reservation. But due to cancellation costs w/in 2 wks or less of your arrival date, you decided to make the trip anyway. My larger “Ocean Overlook” house was available at the time of your booking w/3 showers which sleeps 13 adults nicely, & can accommodate up to 20, however in the end budget ruled with 8 adults settling on a 3 bdrm. The Beach Retreat is an older beach cottage, but there have been many home updates w/more on the horizon. Upon the completion of the garage remodel, there will be another bdrm, bthrm w/shower, & finished rec room w/larger pool table. I will update both foosball tables again this spring as I only seem to get 1-2 seasons out of them from guests use.

Cozy, Comfortable and Quiet

This was a fantastic place for a quiet getaway with all the comforts of home. The owners have done a fantastic job of making their home very inviting and cozy. All the amenities are perfect. I love that there are great beds and all the cooking equipment needed for elegent meals or casual dining. This is where I would like to spend all my free time if work allowed. My husband and I were the only ones there but if we ever wanted to bring our grandkids someday they would love it as well. Of course I won't have any grandkids for a few years so I will just enjoy it for awhile all by myself. Might try a girls weekend sometime too.

Owner's reply:

My family & I appreciate your review for this 3 night February stay. Aside from the garage conversion to add a future 4th bdrm, another bthrm, & rec room, I hope to have many more amenities in place once grandkids are in your lives. But until then, we would love to accommodate you or your friends on a future visit to the coast.

Annual Girlfriends Trip

We have rented this home for 3 years and 1 year in the larger home from the Dopps. The Cottage is extremely clean, has everything you needs and the hot tub is excellent after a day of shopping or longs walks on the beach. We love this home and the price is excellent. We will continue renting on our annual trips for many more years to come! We highly recommend this property!

Owner's reply:

Loved this house! Plenty of room for 5 adults and our 5 year old, though it could have slept more kids. Loved being so close to the beach, and that we could even bring our dogs! BBQ and hot tub were great additions, and plenty of yard space and things to do for the little one. Will definitely be back!

Steve Dopps

Owner's reply:

Thanks for your great review. I've made many improvements to the "Beach Retreat" house in the last several years & hope to continue w/garage conversion this spring to add another bdrm, bathrm, & rec room for even more room for guests.

You will find a quiet retreat with something for all ages at this vacation rental. The owner has provided plenty of toys, outdoor play equipment, games, and books for children. Video games, foosball, large lcd-tv's, wi-fi, hot tub for all. The kitchen is well-stocked and the dining area is large. The beds are very comfortable and plenty of extra bedding is available. The home is as described on the website and you will enjoy relaxing, the secluded yard, and great location. Steve quickly answers every question and goes out of his way to be helpful. We look forward to returning to this reasonably priced vacation home.

Had a wonderful time

This is an excellent property for families with children. The large yard and play structure, not to mention the hot tub, were big draws for my grandsons. The younger one was delighted with the GeoTrax, and the living/family room is large enough to leave the toys out and still have plenty of room to relax and watch TV. Enough bedroom space for the 7 of us without having to use the hide-a bed. The kitchen is a bit dated but well-equipped, and the owner tells me the downstairs bathroom and kitchen are going to be remodeled. All in all, one of our best beach stays ever.

Very clean & comfortable. Extremely relaxing. The owners are SUPER to work with & the house has EVERYTHING you need & more. Hot tub was fabulous, lotsof toys for the kids, rooms/beds are so comfy. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Fabulous Family Home

We loved every moment of our stay at this Lincoln City home. Nice quiet street. The house is filled both inside and outside with things for children to do and quiet relaxing for us adults. The owner was great to work with. There was everything we needed right there. Will be returning!

Great family getaway

Our family was more than impressed with the setting, location, price and quality of this beach house. The house itself is modest and user friendly, it accomodates the entire family from the little ones who can enjoy playing in the sandbox, and the security for mom and dad that the yard is enclosed. It is a great place to enjoy time with your loved ones and the beauty of the Oregon Coast. We would definitly reccommed (and have) to our friends what a great place this is to stay and encourage them to see for themselves.

Home away from home

My wife and I stayed here with our 1 year old daughter and had a very relaxing vacation!! Very well kept and great walk to the beach. We have decided there is no where else on the oregon coast worth staying. Thank you sooo much guys.

An excellent weekend

We booked this home on short notice as our friend was to be fighting in the FCFF Caged at the Coast event at Chinook Winds. We were so surprised upon arrival at what we had rented. I figured it would be a smaller beach property with enough room to operate and sleep...little did we know the place was huge! It was awesome. I never imagined we would be so lucky. The house had tons going on and a lot to keep everyone busy. The house might be a little older but they have done a lot to modernize it and make it a great place. Flat Screen tv's throughout, a nice new BBQ, great hot tub, quality bedrooms with nice beds. This place was outstanding and I can't wait to go back. Thank you so much to the owners for an excellent time!

Fantastic Family Vacation!

Our family goes on a vacation to the Oregon Coast every summer. This house definitly has everything your family is looking for! The kids had so many things to do, they were never bored. Whether it was outside on the swings, in the playhouse, playing in the sandbox or simply just running around the yard. Great peace of mind for us adults. Very relaxing, quiet neighborhood. And all of us adults couldn't have asked for a better vacation. Felt like a home away from home. Everyone could enjoy somthing different while being together. Foosball, cable, movies, games, hot tub, picnic table, close to the casino & beach. Just some of the things our family enjoyed while staying here, memories never to be forgotten. Looking for a great place to go for your next family vacation, look no further! Our family can't wait to come back!

The Call!

Despite the buckets of rain this weekend; the ladies and I had an awesome relaxing time at the beach house. We loved your spacious home. The living area off the kitchen made it convenient for some of us to be LOUD and not disturb others still sleeping. We plan to return for our GIRLS ONLY weekend and with our families to enjoy the huge fenced in yard. Our next GIRLS only weekend has already been booked. Thanks Steve

Cozy during the winter storm

We were pleasantly suprised upon our arrival at the beach rental for our girls get away. We immediately felt at home. We were treated to a winter storm during our stay abd fekt utterly felt cozy tucked into the house. The gas fireplace set the scene as we watched the storm out the big windows. The hot tub was also a grand treat to enjoy the storm from. The kids loved the toys available at the house and the sleeping set up was perfect. The yard looked great for the kids and we were sad it was to stormy for the kids to play in. Maybe next time. The house was located in a very quiet neighborhood. It was easy to locate and an a quick drive to the outlet mall and casino.


Milwaukie, OR

Very Comfortable

My family typically stays in timeshare condos... this time we wanted to do a little gambling, so we found this property last minute on Craigslist. The house was very well equipped! I forgot my iPod dock and thought, SHOOT! But when we walked in, I was very pleasantly surprised to find an iPod dock that was alreay hooked up to the surround sound in the living room. The hot tub was clean, as was the rest of the house and property. You really get the feeling of seclusion here, unlike the timshare condos I usually stay in. The beds are also very comfortable and I would recommend this house to anyone. It's a nice short walk away from the casino and beach. The owner is an excellent person to communicate with and makes booking simple! Will be back!!




This is a great rental home, especially for those who have children. The house was really clean, lots of toys, video games and lots of space. We had a really good time and would recommend this to everybody.

Great kicked back beach rental!

We had a wonderful time! The kids did not want to leave the yard, they had a blast exploring. The house was fixed up nice, clean, yet not too "stuffy" for those with children. The adults enjoyed the hot tub at night and how close the house was to the casino. Another huge plus was the all the toys you had. It was nice not having to bring things for the kids to do. :o) We will be back!

michelle booth



the house was beautiful,the view spectacular.The hot tub would have been great but it was way to hot to sit in.and im not sure what duties are for the cleaning people,but the bath tub was dirty,the barbque was unuseable and there was burn rice in the burners on the stove.All and all it was a wonderful place,and would love to go back and stay


Springfield, OR

Great retreat!

We had a really great week staying in this home. We rented movies, played games, visisted the beach and enjoyed being with family. I will return to this home again. My kids loved playing with the toys provided and the swings and sand box were a great bonus. The hot tub rocked!

Beach House

We were happy with the stay. It was a cozy comfortable house and a great place to stay with pets. Steve made payment arrangements very easy and any questions I had were answered right away.

Cool owner's

Steve made everything so easy for us.We were suprised on how nice and clean the house was.Great location close to all the action and fishing.But also private and quite and peaceful.We had a cook out with about 10 people and everyone loved the place.The only problem was they loved it so much they will be renting it and that might be a problem for me later ha,ha.3 People slept there and we felt like king's and queen of the casle plenty of room for more guest next time.And there will be a next time.So if i am going to drive 6 hours to and from and rent it again you know for a fact it's a great place.

Loved The Cottage

Sandy Shores is the quintessential beach house. We loved the knotty pine interior and big rock fireplace where we had a fire every night. The view of the beach and surf from the living, dining and master is fabulous and the direct access via the stairs made it so easy to zip down to enjoy the beach. The cottage is small, but a great little getaway for a family or small group of friends. We will book this place again!
