Description from owner

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 & free WIFI internet.

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).

Beds: 1 King Bed, 2 Queen Beds, 4 Twin Beds

“Location, location, location”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2016

Need we say more? Best views in Newport. We spent our 25th wedding anniversary here and enjoyed it immensely. The views are spectacular and you can see for miles. We saw whales every day, including some playing and jumping. Access to the beach is via a steep path, so you need to be careful but it is right next to the WOW house. Nye Beach is an easy walk for lunch at the Chowder Bowl or drinks at Nana's pub. The kitchen is fully, and we mean fully, equipped for either warming leftovers or cooking. The décor is a little dated and the master bathroom is a little funky, but you cannot beat the location. We would definitely rent again when back on the coast!

“BEST location on the Oregon Coast to stay!”

I live right on the beach in Hawaii and I couldn't have been happier with our choice of staying in The WOW House for the week in Newport Oregon! Cute beach towns near by and all sorts of wonderful places to eat! We will definitely go back and will book again at the WOW House!!

Owner's reply: Hi Lorri and mahalo for your great review! Please let us know when we can ever assist you with a return visit to Wow House. Aloha, Jim & Lana

“The perfect beach house to watch the storms!”

Reviewed 29 Mar 2016

Walking in you are at first awed by the magnificent view down the beach with Yaquina Head Lighthouse in the distance. As you settle in, it feels like you borrowed a house from your favorite Uncle... as if he just left after a good cleaning. There were fresh flowers on the dining room table! We booked this long before the weather report, and chanced on a very rainy Oregon spring. I cannot imaging a better place to sit out the storm!

“Great early Thanksgiving!”

Reviewed 30 Nov 2015

The WOW House is perfectly described! You can't help but say when you see the views! We were there for an early Thanksgiving and found it to be perfect. It is very well-equipped, right down to the binoculars for watching whales from the beautiful great room. Great access to the beach and to the shops in Nye Beach. We had a wonderful vacation on the coast and felt right at home in the WOW house!

Our family had such a great time at this place! The house view was amazing- you can sit and watch the ocean and see the lighthouse even from the kitchen table. The house is nicely built- very comfy and makes you feel right at home. Access to the beach is just down the hill and no houses blocking the view nor the road to the beach. If there will be opportunity to return, we definitely will.

This is a great place for a family gathering. A well outfitted kitchen keeps everyone cooking and happy. The views of the beach are the best, and it's one of the best beaches on the Oregon Coast. I like the idea that it feels isolated and yet all the conveniences of Newport....stores, etc are around the corner. A great mix for a great stay.

“Love this home!”

Reviewed 6 Apr 2015

Arranged a birthday stay for my husband inviting his adult kids and their partners to join us. We had a wonderful relaxing time enjoying the lovely view from the living room (Saw whales spouting and one breach - breathtaking!) This is a beautifully decorated home! Saw the great sites around Newport including the Coast Aquarium and Rogue Brewery. Hiked (carefully) down to the sand and walked south to Nye Beach. The beds were comfy with plenty of pillows and extra blankets. The owners are immediately available via text and accommodated our early arrival. The house is fully equipped and has many kitchen supplies although I never found the tea kettle. My son in law made pulled pork with the crockpot. YUM! We made great memories here.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much Joan. Please let us know when you would would like to return for more great memories. All the best! Your hosts, Jim & Lana

“Our Xmas week was Wonderful”

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”

Reviewed 12 Dec 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.

"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..
