Description of the Newport vacation home rental
View of Views & Nye Beach access,
Yaquina Lighthouse, miles of beach,
whitewater. One word: WOW!!

A great location in the heart of Newport where Nye Beach meets Agate Beach, and close to the fine dining, shopping & activities of Historic Nye Beach & the Bayfront. Panoramic only begins to describe what the eyes take in from this spectacular vantage point just steps away from a beach access trail.

This 2,100sf contemporary oceanfront home is beautifully appointed to maximize both comfort & views. The living, dining & kitchen areas are on the upper level adjacent to an oceanfront sundeck, and many large picture windows take in the views. A high vaulted open beam ceiling & floor to beam rock fireplace accentuate the open yet cozy expanse, with a 52" LCD TV/DVD, desktop computer & WIFI internet for your convenience.

The kitchen is framed by a long granite countertop/bar and has all stainless appliances. A dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, blender, toaster are included along with all necessary utensils. A laundry room and 1/2 bathroom are conveniently nearby.

Three of the four bedrooms front the blue Pacific. A large Master Bedroom is on the upper level with access to the sundeck and includes a King Bed, TV/DVD & Master Bathroom with a jetted Jacuzzi tub. The other three bedrooms, two with Queen Beds and one with 2 Twin Bunkbeds are on the ground level along with a full bathroom.

There is also ample room for convenient off street parking for 4 cars.

NOTE: Weekly rentals are 7 days & 7 nights (not 6 nights as some offer).

Our Xmas week was Wonderful

January 2, 2015

Lana and Jims rental house was so very nice and very clean. It was PERFECT. It definitely says WOW when entering the place. Huge windows to have a panoramic view of the ocean. Very tranquil. Lana and Jim provided a xmas tree for us since we arrived on xmas eve. Very thoughtful in making our stay so wonderful. We all plan to get together again and will definitely want to rent this house. Thank you so much Lana and Jim. Selma from Iowa

Nye Beach rental

December 12, 2014

Clean home, nice location on bluff above beach and less than .5 mile from Nye beach center with great view of ocean. An overwhelming and perhaps cramping array of kitsch. Lighthouses, mermaids, glass balls, seahorses, glass fish, and more and more throughout the house. Odd that for paying this amount for rental firewood isn't included for fireplace in house.

Great Family Vacation Spot

October 22, 2014

Great house with an amazing view. We took our family plus both sets of grand parents for a week and the size of the house was perfect. Access to the beach worked great for us, although the trail is fairly steep. Within walking distance to shops and restaurants in Nye Beach. We will definitely be back for another stay!

Great Find!

February 17, 2014

The Guest House is exactly as pictured - clean- cozy - located in a very safe area for a solo traveler, easy walking to shops, restaurants, and the beach, yet only a few minutes' drive to Newport's other attractions. The kitchen was well-supplied with dishes, cookware, utensils....Very comfortable bed... great view!

WOW Delivers!

January 23, 2014

My first thought when we got in the house - WOW! Could not have picked a better home in which to begin our new tradition of an annual family beach trip. Perfect fit, and room for more grand babies over the years. The views are stunning!!! Full on unobstructed ocean views as well as being able to see the Yaquina Head Lighthouse. Very comfortable, kitchen well stocked with items to fit our cooking needs and roomy enough for multiple cooks. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation - and wished it was longer!! A side note - we all talked about how lucky we were to have such fabulous weather, but all agreed that the house would still work out great even if it was raining all weekend! Just glad it wasn't! Thank you so much for the use of your home! And we LOVED smelling the beautiful flowers that were on the table to great us when we got in.

Wonderful Family Christmas at Wow House!

January 2, 2014

We decided to do something different this year and take Christmas week off for a family get together at the coast! We had a wonderful time at Wow House. Very cozy double fireplace! Easy beach access and incredible views! The December weather was surprisingly great. Sunny and in the 50s while it was foggy and in the 30s in the valley. Beautiful sunsets every night! We can't wait to plan another event at Wow House!

Wow is not enough

September 24, 2013

Wow is not enough to describe this home and the great time that we had staying there. I have rented a few houses, but none have ever provided us with all of the essentials for our stay. Shampoo, laundry soap, TP paper, paper towels. They thought of everything. The rooms were very comfortable. Slept great every night because of the comfort of the beds. View was to die for. Had a great time. Would definitely rent it again.

WOW is right!

June 15, 2013

That will be your first reaction when you see the view from the livingroom...wow! Besides the beautiful view of the Yaquina Head lighthouse, the home is well maintained and a very comfortable place to stay. The master bedroom has a memory foam mattress and very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes pots and pans as well as some basic ingredients for cooking. They also supplied a crock pot, blender, and electric griddle. Paper products, cleaning supplies,laundry soap, and light bulbs also supplioed. They have a Weber kettle grill. For those who need it, they aso supplied baby gate, booster chair & bassinet. Also books, puzzles, games. The locationis great....a 10 min walk one way to Nye Beach and surrounding shops and restaurants. And approximately a mile to the local Fred Meyer and Safeway for grocery shopping. Although there is a trail to the beach right next to the house, I suggest you do like the sign says and go to the next trail several yards from the house and before the next mailbox as the trail closest to the house is severely eroded and looked unsafe to me. The house overlooks the beach and you decend about 35'. The owners, Jim and Lana are very responsive and right on top of things. It was so restful staying there...my husband's criteria was we had to be able to hear the ocean and we could! I would certainly consider coming back again...it was a wonderful place to stay!

Fantastic Beach House!!!!

April 17, 2013

We had a great trip to the Oregon Coast and have say this house had a lot to do with our enjoyment. What a great location and well kept property. The views are amazing and furnishing beyond expectation. Jim and Lana have thought of all personal touches to make you feel at home and they do everything they can to ensure you relax and enjoy. The entire process was flawless. We are already looking at our calendar for the next trip. You can't go wrong with this rental. It's well worth it and we look forward to our next visit!

May be the BEST view on all of Nye Beach!

November 23, 2012

First and most importantly, the pictures of this house do NOT do it justice (which is a good thing because now you have a better chance of renting it :-) ). If you are able to rent this house while you visit the Newport Coast, consider yourself incredibly lucky. This house SHOULD be continuously booked and may have one of the best views in the entire city of Newport. I can 100% recommend the property and the owner (who addressed all of my emails prior to our trip as well as answered his phone promptly when any questions/problems arose during our stay). Despite the large size of the house, the layout and design of the second floor makes the house feel cozy and inviting. The two-sided fireplace is a great feature and you are literally next to everything! The lower level houses all of the rooms (except the master) and is just as nice. You are 7 minutes walking distance to restaurants and just a short drive to the Nye Beach Lighthouse (which you can see from your windows).

Still Wow!

July 16, 2012

This is our second time at the Wow House and we still walk in and go WOW. To stare at Yaquina Head Light all day is fantastic. We cooked great meals in the kitchen with those gorgeous granite counter tops, watched Harry Potter on the big screen TV and slept like a dream with the ocean sounds to lull us to sleep. We can't come back for a while, but you can guarantee we will be back. Thank you for another great time at the ocean!!

Wow doesn't say enough!

May 2, 2012

My wife and I needed a place that would accomodate our 'West Coast brood' of kids, grandkids and friends. The Wow House had the rooms/BR's and view of the ocean we wanted for our much-needed vacation. From the moment we arrived, we found it to provide everything and more than it promised. Impeccably clean with an oceanfront view that defies description. During our stay we discovered the owners had not overlooked even the smallest of convenience items like toiletries that are often forgotten when packing. The kitchen is equipped for the gourmet chef (that would be Momma) and, despite being within 5 minutes of shopping, you are 'isolated' on a bluff over the ocean. The sound of surf crashing while a cool breeze blows into the master bedroom makes sleeping back in the Midwest tough. We WILL return next year and again many times after that. Don't miss this place!

Perfect Getaway!

March 14, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the WOWhouse for four nights in February. First of all, this place is amazing! The photos DO NOT do this home justice!. The view is incredible… huge windows overlooking the ocean & a great view of the lighthouse…for sure EXCEEDED our expectations… and you couldn’t ask for better beach access – just right outside the door. This home is comfortably furnished and very tasteful. The kitchen is a pleasure to cook in – very spacious & had everything we needed. Great communication from the owners of the WOWhouse. They did everything possible to ensure our stay was perfect… We highly recommend this beach house & plan on staying again in the near future.

Great Vacation!!!!

January 29, 2012

Stayed at the Wow House for eight days, and simply had a wonderful time. Had my wife, two young children (30 months and 8 months), parents, and mother in law, and easily had room for all of us. House was a great fit for everyone, and had great access to beach, close to shopping and restaurants, and kitchen is fully equipped for cooking. Couldn't have possibly stayed at a better place in Newport. We simply had a great experience.

James & Lana Wetherill

Owner's reply:

Thanks Greg for such a courteous & positive review!! We sincerely appreciate your visit and we welcome your return visit to WOWHouse in the future. We are trying our best to live up to our WOWHouse expectations & continually strive to improve the experience for all of our guests.

The WOW house is better than we could have imagined. Not only is it a beautiful home in the perfect location, the decor, art and kitchen dishes and utensils were great. It's very comfortable, quiet, has a spectacular view and close access to the beach. Our family wished we could have stayed longer. It's also a good value.

Perfect Beach House

May 28, 2010

This was an ideal spot for our family gathering. It is very clean, spacious and light, with a huge open kitchen. The view is breathtaking, and there is a lovely deck overlooking the beach. We had 15 people over for dinner and it was very roomy and comfortable. The master bedroom is massive and has doors opening out to an oceanview deck--it is lovely to fall asleep to the sound of the surf. The other bedrooms are cozy and welcoming, too. It is easy to find and both private and yet close to everything you will need. The owners are very helpful and will assist you in any way they can to make your stay comfortable. I highly recommend this for families or groups--you will not find any home more perfect than this!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

"WOW" begins our new oceanfront listing for 1 simple reason. That's what most say when they gaze at the panorama their first time. The view just doesn't get much better than this, and the convenient yet private beach setting in beautiful Newport doesn't either. Our business is your pleasure.. so book your WOW now!! Your Hosts..
