“We Loved the "American Dream" Experience”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2014

My wife and I recently rented the "American Dream" Property for our family vacation at the Oregon Coast. We have 3 daughters and son-in laws and five grandchildren ranging in ages of 9-16 yrs. We thoroughly enjoyed the spaciousness of the living and dining room area for eating and playing board games. The view and sound of the waves was spectacular. The fire pit for s'mores and the hot tub provided great fun for everyone. We spent lots of time playing ball and hunting sea shells on the beautiful beach. The nearby Coast Aquarium, Hatfield Marine Science Center and horseback riding were all a big hit. The gorgeous sunsets in the evening just put a topper on a day full of fun. We would highly recommend this property to anyone interested in having a blast at the beach!!! We are anxiously looking forward to our next opportunity to experience the "American Dream".

Owner's reply: Now that's the way to vacation!!! We're so pleased your family loved and utilized everything American Dream had to offer. More importantly, we're ULTRA PLEASED everyone took home so many treasured memories:)) Sounds as though your family had the trip of their dreams… Just lovely! ;) Looking forward to your return! Kindest Regards, Linda & Rich

“Women's Retreat”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2014

We had a full house of women for our retreat. The accommodations were great. With two bathrooms and 15 women, it takes a little more planning, but definitely worth it. The view is breathtaking! Easy to get to the beach, too.

Reviewed 31 Mar 2014

I found my standard of vacation homes to be much higher than the reality of what they actually are......However American Dream Home met all if not exceeded them!! it was the perfect fit for our family. Right on the Beach, Plenty of room for everyone (12 of us) to have our own very comfortable beds, Sophisticated décor in main family room with a spectacular view. The kitchen was very well equipped. Seating for everyone to have meals together. Our dogs were in heaven too! I truly cant say enough....We are planning our next trip in the Summer. Thank you again Linda and Richard

“Thanksgiving blessings”

Reviewed 4 Dec 2013

We loved our stay. Everything was what we expected and more. We were able to visit some great tourist places and events, eat great food, walks and sand castles on the beach and our thanksgiving beach tradition "turkey plunge in the ocean thanksgiving morning". The home was perfect layout for our family and we would love to come back again. Thank you for providing this wonderful home.

“Memorable Experience”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2013

The American Dream was perfect for our ladies weekend in Newport, Or. The home is very comfortably furnished and equipped with every possible amenity. The location and views of the ocean and beach from the home and the deck are spectacular. It is also prime location for storm watching, as we were there for the first wind storm of the fall season, but we were safe and warm! The home faces the ocean and beach with beach access, if you don't mind stairs. You can hear the ocean from all the rooms in the house. The owners couldn't have been more helpful for any questions that we had. It made for a truly memorable experience that we look forward to repeating in the future. Thank you again!

Owner's reply: Glad your experience at American Dream, was one that was filled with LOTS of memorable good times:) We appreciate your patronage...Thank you so much! Linda & Rich

“awesome ocean front rental”

Reviewed 21 May 2013

our family of 6 had a fabulous stay at American Dream. the house was well appointed with all the necessities. enjoyed the fire pit each evening and the hot tub was a big hit. one day of our stay was too windy and cold for the beach so we visited Yaquina Lighthouse. a must do activity and if you are up to it, be sure to visit Cobble Beach at the Yaquina Lighthouse. truly a wonderous sight. thanks Linda and Rich for sharing your beautiful home with us. see you again next year.

Owner's reply: We're so pleased a 'fabulous' time was had by all:) We look forward to your return! Kind Regards, Linda & Rich

A year ago my husband had a cardiac arrest. The 8th of January was the day we brought him home from the hospital, also, this is the last day of our stay at the *American Dream*. This weekend is a Christmas present to our kids and to my husband, so we could start the beginning of a new year. The house was a perfect getaway. It was close to Newport, so the guys spent several hours on the boardwalk crabing. Us girls spent the day watching the commercial boats, playing games and walking on the beach. I have to say that the path and the stairs to the beach is the nicest and easiest trail on that coast line. Then in the evening time we spent time in the hot tub. A perfect way to end the evening. The weather this weekend was perfect. The sun was out and there was no breeze. Tee shirt weather!!! Three of the young adults in our group even took advantage of the boogy boards. Something you do not see in January on the Oregon coast. Of course the hot tub felt great to them when they came back. Down stairs has two bedrooms with king size beds,a big play area for the younger kids in the group, with bunk beds a big screen TV (games) and a foosball table. Upstairs you have a big table, kitchen, a bedroom with a king size bed, bathroom and a big living area with several big windows to watch the ocean and another big screen TV. This getaway home offers something for every age of child in you. I definitely would come back and I would also recommend * American Dream* to all ages of kid in us all. The owners are very nice to work with and I want to thank you Linda and Rich for sharing your *American Dream * with me and my family. It was and is truely a new beginning for us all. THANK YOU!!!!! Mary

“a little of everything”

Reviewed 16 May 2011

We enjoyed a great trip to the oregon coast. After searching online for a week or so we selected "American dream" to host a mothers day retreat for my wife, sister in law and mom. Everyone loved the home. Fourteen of us all together with six adults and eight children. First thing that we noticed when we walked into the home was the fantactic view. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were. Seven of the kids slept down stairs on the sofa bed and bunk beds and had a great time. Even thought they were up late we noticed how good the insulation is in the home. Just close the door and almost no noise. My wife and I have a nine month old boy and found plenty of room and to spare in the larger downstairs bedroom. With the king sized bed a table and chairs there was plenty of room for his crib. The kids loved the foose ball table, the hot tub, the sand toys and the short walk to the water. My nine year old son and his cousin even went boogie boarding on the last day. Boogie boards and sand toys are provided at American Dream. The parents loved the short walk to the water, the views, short drive ( about 5 minutes) to Newport, the comfortable beds and variety of activities close by. The Newport aquarium is worth a look! Linda was a pleasure to work with and even left a welcoming mothers day gift for the moms. Everything in the home is well thought out and well loved. We would stay at American dream again. My son summed it up best. When we got home from the trip my son told me it was better than Disneyland!
