Description of the Lincoln City vacation home rental
This oceanfront house is in the Taft area of Lincoln City (near Mo's). It overlooks the beach, Siletz Bay, and the rocks in front of Spanish Head. It has a very private oceanfront porch and yard with vacant treed lot next door. The main floor has vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, a floor to ceiling rock gas fireplace, and an open, lodge-like design. The living room has two seating areas (one for watching TV). Two bathrooms are on the main floor. The three bedrooms (two with excellent ocean views and one with a partial view) and a half bath are on the top floor. Technological amenities include flat screen TV with dish network, espresso machine, broadband internet with WiFi and in-house computer, Wii, Play Station 2 with games. There is an eat-in kitchen with counter and stools, plus oceanfront dining room. The house is on a cliff. Stairs to beach are 300 feet north. PLEASE ASK ABOUT HOLIDAY RATES they are never $150 a night as midwinter week nights are.

NEW: We have optional sit-on-top kayaks for paddling around in the Siletz Bay when the tide is slack. They are not sea kayaks and may not be used in the ocean. A $25 per kayak rental for your entire stay, a credit card security deposit, and a signed waiver will get you out paddling with the seals. You can drop a crab trap out in the middle of the bay for a bigger haul than you'll ever get from shore. They are light enough that two people can carry one down to the bay, or you can take them in your truck. Life jackets are provided and required.
Area Information
Here at the outlet of the Siletz River, the Oregon Coast abounds with life. A colony of harbor seals lives within a few hundred yards of the house. Whales are regularly spotted from the living room couch or porch. The rock formations in the sea are covered with mussels, starfish, and anenomes. Seagulls, pelicans, cormorants, and other sea birds drift along the bluff just outside the window, while sandpipers run on the beach. Our ever-changing beach varies from a vast expanse of sand in summer, (often with a fun sand cliff at the high tide line) to fierce storms buffeting the foot of the stairs in winter (that's how all that driftwood got there!)

Besides all that Lincoln City has to offer, you can take a scenic day trip to Newport and the Oregon Coast Aquarium (just 23 miles), or up past Cascade Head to Pacific City or the Capes Route.

Alaina Redenbo

Vancouver, WA

Fabulous home and home owner

Thank you so much for accommodating our family and dogs. Your home was perfect, especially with the privacy and quiet atmosphere. The small yard and privacy was great for our dogs too. We enjoyed seeing whales all week along with the spectacular view. We also had wonderful weather all week. The house felt so homey and with the great views, we talked about how nice this house would be even during stormy weather.

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thank you Alaina! I do love to watch a storm there and hear the wind and rain pound the house, knowing that it has stood there for almost 70 years. I'm so glad you enjoyed the house and the privacy.

Before other pet owners read this review and get excited that we accept pets, we generally do not any more, unless you have stayed with us before and proven to be an excellent and responsible pet owner with a non shedding pet. Thanks!

Wales!!

Our family stayed at your lovely home the last week of August and WOW did we see wales! Every time we could see the ocean, especially morning and evening, if we looked south toward the mouth of the river and just past the breakers we saw wales! I have been to the beach every summer since I was little and have never seen so many! Amazing to look right out the windows and see such a sight! We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and the comfortable beds. Our kids played games when it was foggy and we enjoyed the comfy couches to read in. Thank you for letting us into your lovely home. I hope we get to return soon. The Kellys

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thank you Margot, you guys were great guests. Thanks for staying at our house. My friend went out on a whale boat the next weekend, they left from Depoe Bay and ended up right in front of our house and saw lots! That's where the whales like to feed. The humpbacks are on their way back from Alaska now, to winter in Baja.

Justin Stanley

Vancouver, WA

Great house, wonderful views

Stayed for 4 days/3 nights at the end of August. Easy access to the beach via the stairs a couple hundred yards away. The weather didn't cooperate so we didn't get to take as much advantage of that access as we'd hoped, but the house itself definitely took some of the edge off of what could have been a rough time with our three kids trapped indoors (19-year-old, 10-year-old, and 2-year-old). Lots of fun just playing video games, board games, and ping pong... House was also very clean and has a great open floor plan.

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thanks for staying at our house Justin and family! And thanks for your comments. August can be foggy and windy when it is hot in the Willamette Valley. I hope you'll come back sometime with better weather (my favorite seasons are June and late September/early October). I'm heading over there today with some new cookware, a new Henckle knife block and some other things for the house.

Ai Lin Lim-Eng

Seattle, WA, USA

A beautiful home for all seasons!

The beach home is located conveniently just off the scenic highway 101. By walking, one could get easily to the beach, shops, restaurants and grocery stores. Everything about the house is what Amy has described to us. There are so many beautiful and spectacular photo stops south of Lincoln City. My family and I had our most fabulous vacation ever in this home. Amy was very thoughtful, communicative and thorough. We are already planning to return to this fabulous retreat home soon.

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

I am so very happy that you had a memorable vacation at our beach house Ai Lin! You were the best guests, and you are welcome back any time. Thank you.

Bend, OR

Great property that feels like home!

We stayed at Amy's property for Spring Break and absolutely loved it. We are a family of 6, so the extra space and bathrooms were wonderful. The home feels like your own and well stocked. It has a lovely view and in inclement weather if you are stuck inside you still have a wonderful view of the ocean. I loved waking up and walking downstairs to the beautiful view. The walkout basement is perfect for keeping sand out of the house. We also enjoyed an air hockey tournament one night in the basement. The stairs to the beach are minutes away and a walk down to the bay and Moe's about 10 minutes. Bonus was that we were able to bring our dog! Amy was absolutely wonderful to deal with and provided us with a much needed family retreat. Can't wait to come back again!

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thank you Tracey! We definitely look forward to having you come back.

Oceanfront Gem!

My girlfriends and I had a most enjoyable 2 night stay in your home. We were wowed by the beautiful oceanfront view and were so surprised to see whales spouting this time of year! The living room was perfect for us to sit and visit while enjoying the gorgeous view. The pretty fireplace, warm woods and comfortable furniture made it very cozy. All 5 of us were quite happy to have our own comfy beds too. We didn't do any cooking, but found everything we needed in the kitchen for preparing our food from home, snacks and coffee. We couldn't figure out how to get the heat turned on, but a quick call to Amy took care of that. She was able to turn on the furnace and adjust the thermostat from her house! We were warm and comfortable right after our phone call :) The location was perfect for our walks on the beach, lunch and dinners out and so close to the Outlet Mall. The weather was beautiful for the end of Jan./1st of February. Blue sky and calm! We had to wrap our jackets around our waist... perfect sweatshirt weather when walking on the beach. We didn't even turn on a TV our entire stay! The 3 bathrooms made it so nice for 5 women to shower and get ready without any difficulty. I also enjoyed the nice water pressure with my showers! We all had such a nice time and agreed this should be an annual trip. I'm also looking forward to renting your home for my family to enjoy next. It will be a perfect place for me, my husband, 18 year old son and 15 year old daughter to also enjoy. Thank you again for sharing your very clean and comfy ocean front home. Looking forward to my next stay!

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

K'Lyn I am so grateful for this review! You are so kind and we can't wait for you to come back to the beach house.

Charming, comfortable classic cottage

We loved our 3-day stay here. Up above the beach, the house has wonderful ocean views from the common living spaces and the patio (which was sunny and warm throughout our weekend!), and from there, we watched whales, birds and surfers. The house is comfortable and charming with its natural wood interior...handsome and cozy. Furniture, especially the beds, was very comfortable. Lovely linens. Ping pong and air hockey in the basement -- fun! The extra lot that serves as a side yard is a nice touch of privacy, and the beach-walking is great (after a climb down steep stairs nearby). Amy, the owner, was a generous and communicative host. We would rate this home 5 stars except for 3 things: First, the kitchen was not a cook's kitchen...tight quarters, sub-par lighting, minimally stocked. Second, the ability to negotiate stairs is important here...both full baths are downstairs, but the bedrooms are up. And the concrete stairway to the beach is long and steep. Third, the placement of the big-screen TV/game console...it is not separate from the common hang-out area and therefore very intrusive! That said, we found this to be one of our favorite beach rentals, and hope to return soon.

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thank for the review Elizabeth! I appreciate your comments, especially about the beds because I am so particular about them! The kitchen, while narrow, has just about every piece of cookware, bakeware, and appliance you can think of, so I hope you'll communicate with me privately about what you felt was missing before you come again. Unfortunately the remodel I'd love for the kitchen has to wait. An oceanfront house needs so much maintenance to keep it cozy and tight. Thanks for staying!

Nyal Brantner

Awesome House

What a wonderful vacation we had. The house was just perfect, it had everything that we could possibly need in it. Exceptional view and lots to do, with the ping pong table, video games, puzzles, etc. Can't wait to go back. Thank you for letting us rent your wonderful home.

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thank you Nyal! Now that you got to see how lovely Lincoln City can be in December, we hope you'll come back in another season! Thanks for staying.

Max McClellan

Salina, KS

A great time

We had a great time in Lincoln City. Staying at the Oceanfront home with it's great view and close access to the beach was amazing. Everything was just as stated on line. The house had everything thing we needed for an enjoyable time. The sounds of the waves are so relaxing. We are already planning our next trip.

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thank you, McClellan family! So glad you found our home and it was relaxing for you! We'll be hearing from you soon, I hope, for your next visit.

Tina Perez

Keizer, OR

AWESOME HOME!

We had a wonderul stay at Amy's rental house. The weather was perfect, but the way the house is set up I think it would be awesome to sit in the livingroom and watch a storm roll in as well as enjoying the sunshine. The house is very clean and confortable and has everything you need. We had never stayed at a vaccation home just hotels/motels and Amy made it all work out for us. We are one of the lucky ones and got to see what I believe to be a momma and baby whale swim in front of the house then the next day we saw a group of sealions cruise by as well. We are already looking forward to our next vaccation in this home. Thank you Amy!!!

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much Tina! That's so great that you got to see whales. Looking forward to your next stay : )

Lots of comfort

After looking online for a rental for our available dates, finally came across this Lincoln City Beach House and had the same dates available. All dates were full so I knew this was meant to be. Living in Calif. and going thru 3 months of dreadful heat, we heard Lincoln City calling us back. Arrived and found the place as discribed. Not so much with other rentals we found in the past. Only problem was it rained everyday but even that was a nice change. I did miss not getting my feet wet. My timing was always wrong while competing with the rain. I must admit, after seeing the house and the ocean views and all the space, I wished I had brought our children and granddaughters. Even the dogs. I know they would have so enjoyed it too. We took rides along the coast, ate at wonderful restaurants, won a little at the casino. Mostly turned on the fireplace, watched the waves and stayed cozy. No timeframe on anything. One night we even lit up the fire ring and enjoyed the sound of the ocean. This ocean rental is the best!!! Owner is very pleasant to work with and so helpful with direction and details. Amy, my husband did get his Kindle reader connected to your WiiFii. We just called the tec and he put us thru the steps to set it up. Thank you very much. We will come back to your rental. Your family must love it!!!

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Mike, thank you! That sounds like a super-relaxing time. You definitely should come back with your children and grandchildren....we've got something for every age here! And yes, we love this house. I am writing this response from the beach house, sitting on the brown couch, watching the gathering of the next storm over the horizon. I brought a beautiful new rug for the living room. I come over here every chance I get, which is why the house stays in good condition.

sept family vacation

Such a good house! We had so much fun. The house is great, had everything we needed. Nice and spacious for our family. We will be returning.

Brenda

Forest Grove, Oregon

Practically Perfect in Every Way

This was our first stay and we will definitely be returning. Not only were the owners extremely helpful and attentive, but the house and location are wonderful. We were a party of six and there was plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing or just watch the ocean as the views are fabulous. And best of all, you can be on the beach with your toes in the sand in five minutes. We wish we could have stayed a bit longer as our ping pong tournament was stymied by the desire to be on the beach. We highly recommend this beach house.

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thank you Brenda! I appreciate your review and we can't wait to have you back, you were excellent guests. Maybe a winter visit will get that ping pong tournament finished....

Glenna Larson

San Andreas, CA

We come every year!

We found this wonderful house 5 years ago and have been coming every year since. It is the perfect mix of comfy, relaxing and fantastic location. We can walk to the beach for agate hunting, and are only minutes away from crabbing at the bay. (We eat crab nearly every nigh!). Especially appreciated are the ongoing upgrades. Each time we go something good has been added - unlike so many places that just get worse over time. This year we found the house had been painted and new upgraded stair railings inside and out were added. We plan on another visit in 2014!

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much Glenna. You know I'll contact you all in the spring to make sure you don't miss your week at the beach. I'm jealous actually, I don't think I've ever stayed there for ten days in a row like you did last year!

Leslie

OlyWA

We will return

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our long weekend at your house in Lincoln City. Your directions were excellent and we found it easily. The weather cooperated and it was lovely sleeping to the sound of the surf all night! The house is older than most any homes in the neighborhood but we found it fun and funky (the purple...loved it). Seven of us were very comfortable there and we had alot of fun. My husband wants to make it an annual event!! I'm so glad I found it after days of trolling the internet!!!

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thanks Leslie! You stayed in May, which can be one of my favorite months at the beach....usually not windy. Early October is like that too. I'm glad you found us too, and that you're going to join our guests who come back every year.

Lincoln City home rental

Sorry for delayed response. Had a crisis in the family. Any way, here goes. Your rental was wonderful. We enjoyed our stay very much. The only inconvenience was when the front door lock stopped working due to moisture in the air. We could not let the dogs out through the front door to the yard in the middle of the night, and had to take them out via the long basement steps and out into the rain. It is much easier out the front door, since there is a porch cover, and we do not get wet waiting for the dogs to finish their call to nature plus, the yard is fenced with hedges, and the tree lot next door, which is a deterrent to keep dogs from running away. Other than this, you have a beautiful home rental Amy. It was mesmerizing just sitting in the living room and watching the sea waves from the window. We could have sat all day watching the sea out the window, but made ourselves get up and go. Thank you for the lovely stay.

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thank you Lily and Maria! I hope everything's OK with your family.

We resolved the problem with the door lock; it wasn't moisture, it was just stuck. It looked like maybe someone tried to force the door, bending the mechanism; we had to replace it. I'm very sorry about the trip down the stairs in the night!
I know what you mean about watching the ocean there; it's an ever-changing panorama, and so many birds! If you come back you'll find the house refreshed with a facelift; new paint, new windows, and more, happening this weekend. Thanks for staying.

Portland, OR USA

Great place to spend Spring Break

We had a great time relaxing and playing with this beach house as our base. It had ample accommodations for our group of 4 adults, 2 kids and 3 medium sized dogs. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen well stocked and the lounging area roomy AND cozy. It's a nice place to hang out in when the weather is sketchy, with views of the ocean from most rooms. It feels lived in but clean and well maintained. Comfortable is the word. The location is excellent, with beach access (stairs) just down the street, and the bay a 5-10 minute walk to the south. We never did get around to using the kayaks, but it was nice to have the option at a very reasonable cost. The owner, Amy, was a breeze to communicate with. The rental arrangement process could not have gone smoother. 5 stars!

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thank you Mitch! It was nice to meet you guys; thanks for taking the remote over there. What a nice review. We hope you'll come back soon.

Gregory Lee

Weekend Family Get-a-Way

VERY relaxing to sit on the couch and watch the waves crashing on the beach! Located in a very quiet neighborhood. There is lots to do very close to the home. The owner has a crab trap and (2) ride on kayacks for the bay for rent (very cheap) if you so choose. The home was very clean on the living floors. The basement where you enter is unfinished and mainly used for storage. The beach has lots of driftwood for building a fire on the beach and fixing s'mores and roasting hotdogs. The beds were wonderful to sleep on (6 adults and NO complaints). The king bed has a memory foam mattress, the others may but I am not positive. Everything you need for your stay is in the home from pots, pans, griddle, utensils, spices, paper towels, aluminum foil, games, binoculars, bath towels, clothes washer and dryer, dishwasher, Wii games, Playstation, kids toys, WiFi, etc. Pet friendly home was a must for us as my daughter won't go without her rescued dog. This was the first time renting a home rather than staying in a motel and when split with family it is actually cheaper than a motel with much more amenities. Plus, now I don't have to pack nearly as much for a stay.

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much Gregory, I'm glad your family vacation was a success. I checked the weather a couple of times over the weekend (KATU has a camera just on top of the Inn at Spanish Head) and it looked like you really got to enjoy some nice sunshine. It's amazing how nice the beach can be in spring, when it's not windy.

Christie Unger

Forest Grove, Oregon

Awesome Beach House

We feel so lucky to know about Amy's beach house in Lincoln City. It couldn't have been more taylored to exactly what we desired. We were welcomed by spouting whales and sea lions right out the front window. It was so special. Now that we know of a GREAT beach house to stay in, I think we'll be seeing alot more of our beautiful Oregon coast. The weather was great also. If you don't like it at the moment just stay inside by the cozy fireplace and play one of the many games supplied ( including ping-pong ) until the weather changes. It only takes a little while before you find yourself back on the beach in front of the house collecting beautiful agates with every new wave. There just isn't a better view to have a meal from either as all the ammenties of home are in the kitchen at your finger tips. We couldn't believe that we could see the ocean from the COMFORTABLE bedrooms also. This place is simply "The Place To Be" and we can't wait to be there again. Thank you Amy for having such great taste!!! Hope to see you soon... Christie Unger

thanksgiving at amy's beach house

we had a wonderful and memorable family celebration at amy's beach house. the house was warm, extremely comfortable and welcoming. we had everything we needed for cooking every meal for a week's stay. the views and access to the beach were amazing!

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thank you very much, Becky! You also had an amazing stormy night there, with 90mph winds....you got to experience it all.

Carole Poole

Springfield, OR, USA

So Comfy!

Great view! Plenty of room to lounge around in the living space with all 8 of our family. Lots of separate beds for the 6 fishermen and 2 surfers on the trip. We loved the extra bonus of 2 dryers in the basement for us on this ultra-wet fall day on the coast. There's a ping-pong table too!

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thanks for the review Carole! I hope your time volunteering at the Aquarium was fun.

Derek Panzarello

Boise, ID

Wonderful, charming getaway on the coast

We stayed here in mid-September when the weather was absolutely gorgeous. The house was unique, charming and well stocked with anything we could have needed (pots, dishes, soaps, towels, etc). The yard was a bit smaller than expected for the two dogs, but we managed OK. The view more than made up for it! While there was a nice TV with game systems and cable, we never turned it on the entire week we were there. When we weren't out exploring, we'd sit in the living room and watch the boats on the water, and look for whale spouts. The owner of the property was more than accommodating and responded to emails in a very prompt manner. If you're looking for a no-frills, cozy, convenient place to spend some time on the coast, then this is the place for you!

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much for your review Derek! I love your description, it's spot on. We hope you'll be back soon...I know it's a long drive with little ones.

Scott & Pamela Muir

Perfect Time

The weather was fantastic and the house is everything you could want for your beach vacation. Being lulled to sleep in a comfortable bed to the sound of the waves - it doesn't get much better. Maybe next time I might even cook. Thank you Amy!

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thank you! Every season has its charms there, but you did have some nice weather. We'll be welcoming you back soon.

Ocean Front Delights

Very relaxing home with everything we needed for a very convenient stay. Beds were super comfortable, lots of space for our stuff. Sunset each day was a real treat, plus being able to bring our small dog who really enjoyed the time we sat on the patio in the back overlooking the ocean.The location was close to anywhere we headed. The owner was readily available and very helpful, as well as organized for the whole rental process. We would definitely stay at this home again. We did not have time to take advantage of the amenities like the wii and games.

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for the review, Marilynn. I love the description "relaxing" because that's what it's all about at the beach house! And thanks also to you guys for finding my supplies cupboard key : ).

Wonderful beach front home

This house is perfect! The house is very private and has everything wii and playstation satellite tv with a really nice tv the house has wifi and a computer to use also. Furnishings are newer and gas fireplace was nice! I have rented many homes at the coast this has been the best. You can tell the owner take pride in their home it's just not a money making thing for them the prices are great ! This home is not missing a thing! Also has a great lil fire pit off the cozy porch that we really enjoyed using! We thank the owners for sharing

Great for family vacation

Recently our family, including grandchildren met at this beautiful beach house for five days. We had so much room and it is also provided games for the kids and adults also. We would highly recommend this ocean front house to anyone.

THE VIEW!!! Amazing...was very difficult to leave. The house was very clean and cozy, the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. We hope to come back for our 26th :)

Owner's reply:

That's fabulous, thank you Vicki. I feel the same way every time I'm there; the sun always seems to come out just as I'm leaving. I'm so glad you found us.

Relaxing girls getaway

Four women, one beach house, a place for everyone, 3 bathrooms, 2 with showers, beautiful setting and awesome ocean view, the sound of the ocean coming through the windows at night, beach access close by and dinner out a short beach walk away, an evening around the fire pit--it was a wonderful place to call home at the beach. In thinking about future scenarios, because we will be back, the notes I took were: don't assume/bring more spices for cooking (but eating out is such a great option, maybe just don't cook), and consider that everyone coming needs to be comfortable with stairs. Follow the owner's instructions carefully--this place is a gem and we want to keep it that way! Quiet neighborhood deserves quiet visitors. After the fact, the $85 cleaning fee seemed a bit steep for our 2-day stay--but worth it if we had been there for a full week with a full house of people. We were very tidy visitors. We did leave the kitchen spotless, as instructed, and that was the bulk of the cleaning. Still, if you don't want to clean bathrooms or do laundry, mop floors, etc.--opt for the cleaning fee. It's worth it when all is said and done. Enjoy!

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thanks Janet! Great advice for other guests, too. We'll look forward to your sharing the house with your family when you are able to get everyone together.

Wow, what a birthday week!

3 friends and I rented this house for my 60th birthday - for the week. The pix are EXACT! The view was FABULOUS. This is a cozy home perfect for 4 adults. The week was made even more fabulous as the coast had the biggest snowfall EVER RECORDED! Waves were 15-18 feet, wind close to 80 mph. It was awesome to sit and watch it all from this gorgeous picture window with the fireplace going and chocolate wine in all hands. The king and queen beds are sooo comfy. One piece of advice is to bring games if you are adults. Pretty much all children's games. But, other than that, it was a spectacular week and I would definitely rent this home again!

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thanks Glencora! I can't believe that snowfall.....glad you stayed cozy! We're looking forward to your next visit.

A GREAT TIME

This is our second stay at this beautiful house we spent Thanksgiving here a couple of years ago. The house is equipped with everything you will need. The view is great. Our dog loves laying in front of the fireplace. the beach is short walk. We have brought the family but this week was just the two of us. Amy and Robert have created a home away from home. We loved our stay and are sure to return

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much Kathy and Chris, glad to have you back!

Amazing!!!!

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The house and view is amazing. My kids fell in love with the house as it is well stocked with Legos, toys, Wii and several games. Just a short walk away from the beach. Couldn't ask for a better place!

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Lisa, Thanks so much for your comments! Since you've already asked about coming back, we're glad you're going to join the many families who regard the house as "their" beach house. : )

Home away from home!

Excellent property owners with lots of helpful and interesting information. The owners are great, I even received an email the night before we were to arrive with updates about how great the low tide had been and where to take the kids to see some great tide pools! This was my first time renting a vacation home and I will definately do it again. The owner was wonderful, the house was as described with everything needed for our holiday get together including a christmas tree :-) (the owners asked if we were ok with the tree). The kids had a great time playing ping pong / air hockey / Playstation 2 and they even had a Wii system with games. The home is in a great location on the south end of lincoln city - close to the factory stores and not far from the casino and only 6 houses down from beach access. The only issue we had was the remote for the upstairs tv was nowhere to be found (my dad had the kids search the entire house) and due to the satelite system without the remote you could only watch movies. If it wasn't for my dad (can't sleep without a tv) this wouldn't have been an issue, luckily they had sci-fi movies he could watch that made it bearable. The firepit outside is great for making smores (they even had roasting sticks) and enjoying the beach fire experience without the sand. Overall if it wasn't for the remote I would have given it a 5 star. The stairs were a bit much for the older relatives, (they seemed steeper in person) the outside stairs are easier for access but a little narrow and hard to see at night.

Amy Taylor

Owner's reply:

Thank you for the review Lisa! I'm so glad you enjoyed the house. I can't imagine what happened to the remote....We'll get a new one for the second TV when we get our new Dish Network HD dish this week.

Great Location

We really enjoyed our time at this vacation rental. We took advantage of the bonfire pit and roasted hot dogs under the stars. We now have great memories that will last a life time. Whats a weekend in Lincoln City without one stormy day? Thankfully there was a ping pong table that kept the kids and also adults busy for hours. Although it was nasty outside we were able to sit back and enjoy hot coco by the fireplace. Would highly recommended this very spacious rental.

Beach House

This property was great. We hardly ever wanted to leave. We had everything that we needed and more. Great View, nice neighborhood.

Incredible View

The views from all main floor living areas are fantastic. You can hear the waves crashing on the beach below and enjoy great sunsets from the warmth of the gas fireplace or sit on the porch with a glass of wine and say "ahhh". Having two full baths on the main level is great and half bath upstairs where the bedrooms are is very nice. King size, queen or twin beds available, plus a futon on the main floor. I would not recommend this unit for those who have difficulty with stairs as there are stairs to the entry and more stairs to the sleeping areas. The owners take pride in their home and it shows.

Great times and great weather

We had an awesome trip. The weather was perfect and the house was very comfortable. It was nice to wake up to the sound of the ocean.

Old-fashioned Charmer

Lovely, clean, well equipped home. We went to the coast to have a small marriage ceremony and decided to do it right there in the yard with the beautiful ocean view for our background.

Lincoln City beach rental !!!

This was a clean, warm, well accomadated house that required little from the renter other than having a great experience in renting at the beach. The owner was honest and caring. We look forward to next time here.

Great vacation house!

we spent 5 nights, the view was amazing, the house was warm and comfortable. Well equipped kitchen, comfy beds, everything you could need! Owners very accommodating, especially enjoyed being able to take our furry friends. A very enjoyable, relaxing stay.

We want to go back now!

We can't express enough kudos for the vacation house we rented right on the beach in Lincoln City. We had our two granddaughters, one 18 and one is 8, and there was so much for each to do. The beach access was right next to the property, and watching the waves right out the front window was unbelievable. The house was clean, comfortable, and accomodated each of our wishes for a place perfectly. Yes, I would highly recommend this property, and we hope to go back as soon as we can!

Cosy Beach Stay

We stayed for 2 nights during a snowy time. The amenities in the house kept all of us occupied while it was storming outside. Great location.

Great relaxing home on the coast

This was a great home - the photos really don't do it justice. We had a fantastic weekend relaxing on the incredibly comfy sofas in the livingroom with the best view of the ocean. The kids loved the ping pong and air hockey in the basement, and the stairs to the beach were just down the road. The beds, too, were very comfortable and great for a good night's sleep. The 6 of us were very comfortable there. Will definitely be back to this house. Thanks to Amy for allowing us this stay!

Spring break getaway

Loved the neighborhood, the view and proximity to the ocean! We had a multi-generation vacation and Grandparents enjoyed themselves and the peaceful/cozy atmosphere as much as the Grandkids enjoyed the pingpong,videogmames and sand. Mom and Dad enjoyed walking on the beach and in the neighborhood. We loved the nooks and crannies available to everyone to hide away doing whatever each wanted to do. Great way to stay at the Oregon coast since rain is always a factor - stay warm and dry while enjoying the beauty and power of the stormy sea. The kids were asking when we could we come back before we even left!

We enjoyed our stay at this older but nicely kept oceanfront home. Views were great! Very clean. The ping pong table was a nice addition for the couple rainy days.

More than Expected!

With Nelscott Reef in sight, the great room provided unbelievable views of the largest waves we had ever seen. The house is comfortable, with a secluded feel, ample room and smartly furnished. Great for our toddlers and dog. The beach is a short walk with a lot of stairs. The locale has all the ammenities one could desire. We will be back!

Worth The Trip

A very nice house, right at the beach. Our kids loved how close we wer to the ocean. The house is well equipped and comfortable. Amy is great! We will certainly be back. Oh yea, it was extra special because we could take the four legged member of our family with us.

A GREAT GETAWAY

I haven't had any sort of vacation in quite awhile due to my shop demanding all my time. . It was my 52nd birthday but 49 PLUS TAX to anyone who knows me. This has been such a pleasure. We loved the view, the personal touch of fresh flowers and the serene surroundings. .We would do it again. I also recommend to anyone who is not familiar with this area to try the Sea Hag in Depot Bay or Maxwells in Lincoln City. . You won't be disappointed. .

Home Sweet Home

Our little Sisterhood group, from Sweet Home, OR stayed at Amy's house for 2 days. We all had a wonderful time and slept like babies. We even had an entertaining light show over the ocean to watch one evening that was awesome to see! Thanks Amy, for ordering lighting up just for us! heehee!...She is so accommodating! The house is very well equipped and we girls all really appreciated the 3 bathrooms! We had no complaints, and are already planning our next stay! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful comfortable home Amy!

Peaceful Escape

This house is so cozy yet spacious, and the view can't be beat. It is so peaceful to sit in front of the large picture window and watch the waves. We have been renting homes along the Oregon Coast for years, and this house rates among my top five favorites. I can't wait to go back!

Patti Hammett

Exquisite

My sister, mom and I all stayed for five nights and it wasn't long enough. We all have hectic lives so this was a much needed relax and pamper get away. My favorite day, we stayed in our PJ's until 2:00 watching the ocean - seals, dolphins and whales all in one day - then went to the spa. Big house but still very cozy. I can't wait to go back!

Melanie Rager

Excellent Ocean Views!

My husband and I stayed here with our two dogs over Thanksgiving week, and absolutely loved it. The house has amazing views of the ocean, and it's only a short walk to a set of public stairs that take you down to the sand. Plus, the fact that the house is pet-friendly was great for us. And the home itself is very cozy, especially with the beautiful stone gas fireplace. I would definitely recommend this home for families with kids, too, as there are lots of games, puzzles, etc. and it is clear that the owner and her family treasure it as a beach home, and allow others to share as well.

They Thought of Everything

This house on the beach was incredible. Nothing was missed.......the two decks had lots of seating, a great hottub, firepit, and views that would knock your socks off. There was plenty to do inside and out - lots of games, books, TV's in every room (although you would be crazy to watch them when there are so many more exciting things to do), pingpong, and the list goes on. The kitchen was equipped with great pots and pans, a nice herb selection and a wine opener that got used a lot. The only thing we found that was missing was a garlic press. If you are looking for a convenient spot for shopping, beach combing, kite sailing or just relaxing, this house is for you. My daughters, neice and I had a FANTASTIC TIME!!

Fantastic View!!

The view was amazing! Layout of the house was wonderful, and complimented with an astounding 2 story gas rock fireplace. Great family gathering place -- you won't be disappointed.

Great View

I took my family to stay at one of your duplex condo rentals in July and it was a wonderful experience for all of us and expecially for our daughter who came out to visit from Texas with her husband, who had never seen the ocean. This trip helped him fall in love with Oregon and because of this wonderful view from the rental, they are going to move out here next year. This beautiful location and view helped with our mission in getting them to move out here. The rental was very clean and had everything we needed in it. The beds were all very comfortable also. I have already recommended you to several of our friends. Thank you very much for a wonderful memory.

"This is the cleanest vacation rental we have ever stayed in. Congratulations to your housekeeper, she does a wonderful job."

âThis was a great weekend for our family. The weather cleared up today and the water is sparkling. We really enjoyed some of the amenities: the water filter, the espresso maker, the fireplace, the beautiful table outside, and the kids enjoyed the Playstation 2. Altogether this is a beautiful home and it's a pleasure to stay here. I already know that we hope to come again.â

We had a spectacular, restful, peaceful, and joyful time in your wonderful beach house. The view is just incredible. Thank you so much!â

âOur trip to Oregon will always be highlighted by our stay at your beach house. [Our child] had a great time at the beach and with the toys at the houseâ¦â

âThanks again for sharing such a special place with us. Not many hosts can provide clear skies, no wind, 82 degrees, spouting whales and sea lions at the Oregon Coast - it was a pure joy, and a bird-watcher's paradise. Hope to be able to visit again.â

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can more than eight people stay at the house?
A: Unfortunately, no. Our limit is eight and we must guard it strictly so that we don't ever lose our vacation rental permit! But you'll find our prices are very reasonable.
Q: Why are your prices lower than some other houses?
A: We have good reasons for that! We love for smaller groups and couples to be able to enjoy the house. And although it can sleep eight, there are only three bedrooms so that means someone is on the futon! And, although our house is very clean and all of the beds and furniture are excellent and newer, we don't have fancy granite counters or subzero fridges in the kitchen, or jacuzzi tubs, or flat screens in every room. This is the house for people who want to be together, enjoy the views, walk on the beach, cook good food, and enjoy the views some more. The house feels like home.
Q: How do you get all of those amazing reviews?
A: : ) They are all volunteered by our guests, many of whom come back year after year. Come find out why.

    Hi! We bought our house in Lincoln City 11 years ago. We use it frequently, love it lots, and keep it constantly updated and improved. An oceanfront house takes a beating from wind, blown sand, and salt air, so that's an ongoing process. Our goal for our guests is that they feel comfortable...
