Owner Supplied Testimonials

We spent our honeymoon here at The Waves House and everything about the house, the whole area, and the beach exceeded our expectations. It was even better than the photos online. We appreciate the hot tub with the bathrobes, espresso machine, and the views of the ocean a lot. Thank you for telling us about the 1% lodging tax if you rent from an owner (vs. 7% from a property management company)!! Hopefully, we will have our first anniversary at The Waves House next year! Heather, Arizona

We were not sure what to expect since we had never been to Waldport before. We will never forget our amazement when we opened the door to The Waves House. The craftsmanship of the woodworking throughout, custom tile in the kitchen and both bathrooms, amazing photography in every room, everything you could need to cook (aprons included!), beautiful slate wood fireplace and the Hot Tub that we relaxed in every night! We loved the short walk to the beach also. Nancy, you made our stay on the Oregon coast unforgettable. We cannot wait to return. Ann, Nebraska

Nancy, I wanted to drop you a little note, thanking you for letting us escape to your beautiful house. We loved it and it was really hard to leave. Your home is such a nice place to escape to. This weekend will forever be etched in my memory. We also loved how comfortable the bed was and we forgot to check to see what brand it was before we left. But it was very comfortable. I just cannot thank you enough for letting us stay at your wonderful house. We both wanted to bring your house home. You have done a wonderful job on it. Thank you so much, Nancy. Rebecca, Oregon

Hi Nancy! Thanks for the deposit we received a couple of days ago and thanks for your kind note. We did enjoy our time as a family at the Waves House, and found everything in order and very nice! You have a lovely home and great location. Thanks for having the comprehensive notebook at the house about the area--we appreciated that! We enjoyed the central coast and would have loved to have stayed longer! Thanks again for your kind and personable manner, it's been a pleasure! Ginger, Washington

We want to thank you for one of the nicest vacations we have ever had. We were very taken with the ambiance of your home and all the decorating and attention to detail you obviously put into it. Also, we so appreciated the high speed wireless you have at the house as my husband had to do some business while at the coast so that was invaluable to him! Loved the hot tub, bathrobes, comfy beds, being able to hear the ocean, reading lights in the bedrooms, and ocean views. We would love to come back. Meryl, Illinois

Your house was perfect--even nicer than the photos online and we thought those were wonderful. Nancy, you are so nice to do business with--you made our reservation process so easy, more so than we have had in the past. I have told some friends already about you and The Waves House for their next vacation. Our kids loved the videos, being able to have a fire on the beach (!), and the games and books, and I loved the stroller. And we loved getting in the hot tub after the kids went to bed! A perfect ending to our fun-filled, full days. We are already planning our next trip! Kimberley, California

This is the ultimate kid-friendly home! From the stroller, high chair, porta-crib down to the many toys, games, videos, and books, books, books, it has been one of the best vacations we have ever had. It saved us bringing all of these things which is a big deal for us. You may be hearing from our friends because we have recommended your home to them. The kids (and we) cannot wait to come back--maybe for some winter storms next time! Jessica, Idaho

Thank you for such a clean accommodation, that is important to us. We loved walking both at the beach and in the neighborhood--this is an ideal location, we almost walked all the way to Seal Rock on the beach, almost 7 miles! The kids loved having a fire on the beach, complete with smores! Now that is living! The memories are forever etched in our minds, thanks to The Waves House and the entire Bayshore Estates area--I am glad we discovered it. John, Canada

Totally comfortable beds, getting up to espresso while reading the paper, great friends, complimentary wine upon arrival, steaks on the BBQ, the hot tub on a cool night, and do it all again the next day!! Thanks. Sean, Utah

This is our fifth year in a row coming to The Waves House, it is our home away from home. We come back because it is the house we totally look forward to coming to. Nicest vacation and accommodation we have ever had. Thomas, Oregon

Amazing, comfortable, decorative, ultra clean, short walk to beach, sipping wine waiting after our long drive, no wind, contemporary, hot tub of my dreams, BBQ every night, yea for wireless, espresso every morning, staring at the ocean having lunch on the deck, memories forever. Thanks! Sharon, Tennessee

Hi Nancy--Thank you again for providing such comfortable accommodation at The Waves House. The house was a perfect home base while we explored the coast. We enjoyed having a place to cook and relax. Our daughter loved the toys and teddy bears. We very much enjoyed our stay. We reminisce about our time there and look forward to a time we can visit again. It really is a perfect place. Molly, Utah

Dear whoever reads this: My name is Ben. I am almost 13 years old and I live in Spokane, Washington. I have to say I did not think I would enjoy a beach house--our family had stayed somewhere else before. But by the first night, my dad and I were playing monopoly and I was enjoying myself greatly. Now it is the end of the week and I wish I did not have to leave. I hope everyone who stays in this house and reads this message can experience the same wonderful time we had. Ben, Washington

Eight wonderful, quiet, peaceful days and nights, the weather was perfect--warm and sunny. It was a week we needed to relax and escape from the stressful and busy world--thank you. Beautiful views, walks on the beach, the quiet makes us want to come back. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. Jude, Washington

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful vacation and relaxation home with us! We came for our 10th Wedding Anniversary and had a very relaxing and leisure-filled time. We hope to come back and stay with our children some time-they would love it here. I will be telling all of my friends and family about this place. Jen, Washington

Thank you for such a memorable time on the Oregon coast. We loved walks, runs, Frisbee on the beach, reading on the porch, watching DVDs on the sofa, traveling to take in the delights of Yachats and Newport, and shoveling in the delicious food. How will be able to eat without the spectacular view? Cathy, Washington, DC

Yay ~ ladies weekend with 4 generations! Wonderful time at the coast. Same time next year! Really enjoyed spending time with my grandma, mother, 2 sisters and niece. Nice getaway from real world, and relaxing time for insight with wonderful women! Shelley, Washington

Hi Nancy, Thanks for the great weekend! We are getting ready to take off. Everything was fantastic. Let us know if there are any issues that would affect the deposit. Everything is pretty clean though! Thanks again! Sam, Oregon

Hi Nancy, I just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful time at the Waves House. Our children were delighted by the toys and we LOVED the accommodations. We all slept very well (my husband generally doesn't sleep well but really got some decent sleep for the first time in a long time!). It's also true, the pictures don't do the home justice! The living room was much roomier than I previously thought. So thanks again to you for building such a fun, beautiful home and allowing us to stay in it. Stephanie, Oregon

We'll be leaving the Waves House shortly and I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home. We couldn't have asked for a better and more relaxing place to say. Suffice it to say that while we're both feeling recharged having spent the past 4 days here, we're quite saddened to leave. We'll just look forward to next time! Mark, Washington

Three days of warm and cozy relaxation, a wonderful beach, fabulous food, hot tub!!! Need I say more? So what if it rains? That is what a comfy sofa, blankets and a fireplace are for! And when the sun came out, watching the ocean was a joy. When you only get to see each other a few times a year, a 3 day stay at the Waves House is exactly what we needed. P.S. My boyfriend is the best for bringing me here. My first taste of Oregon!

4 of us had a most relaxing time at The Waves House. The beds were so comfy! The ocean waves so creamy. In California, they go to the beach. In New Jersey, they go to the shore. In Oregon, we go to the coast! So we came from Corvallis to Waldport and found the Waves House. So nice, so relaxing, thank you Nancy. Hope to come back.

And I from Corvallis again with friends from Long Beach, California had a restful time. We are of retirement age and I am 90 since January. We loved the quiet of the neighborhood and the beach and the beach grass that Waves has abundantly all over. Slept well in the good beds, enjoyed it all. Thank you

Nancy - Thank you for the update on the refund. Also I wanted to let you know that my family and I had a great time staying at your rental. Great little town and we definitely would like to stay with you again in the future. Thanks.

Thank you so much for sharing your home. We had a wonderful time. We had friends up to visit us from Eugene and they have never seen the ocean before. We took a day trip to Astoria and hit many beaches and view points on the way. Thanks again.

This was by far the best beach experience to date. Enjoyed the aquarium, crabbing, combing the beach for treasures, and riding the sand rail at Sandland, totally recommend the wild ride. It was so nice to come back to a warm fire and a soak in the hot tub. The house was beautiful and beats a hotel experience any day. The 4 of us loved every minute we shared here and will definitely come back. A great place to rest and rejuvenate.

Hi Nancy, Thank you for your nice note; the check arrived today. We enjoyed ourselves immensely at your lovely house, which had everything one could need and more. Though it was rainy and blustery at the beginning and end of our stay, we had a couple of lovely days in between and played golf in Waldport and in Newport. Thanks, too, for the bottle of wine, what a nice greeting! We will certainly want to stay at The Waves House again. Best wishes always,

Nancy, we really enjoyed ourselves and it was nice to be able to be in a home and cook, with toys for the kids to play with. We did clean the house before we left so your housekeepers did not have to do much. We are a bit of clean freaks! I do plan on coming over that way again and using the bigger house this summer when my Dad comes to visit in August. Thanks again!

Our 4 nights here have been wonderful!! Thanks so much to Nancy for sharing this home with us. Took a few day trips to Seal Rock and Devils Punchbowl, both beaches were beautiful. Our sunset last night on the beach was the perfect way to end our stay. Cannot wait to visit again. Thank you again.

Our family stayed here this summer for the third year in a row. The home is absolutely beautiful, we love the hot tub with terry bathrobes and the kitchen which has everything we need. Our kids loved the barbies and the videos, thank you for being so child-friendly! We noticed you have continued to add new, fun things to the home, such as the new gorgeous photos in every room--I went from room to room just to view them. Thank you for making this another perfect vacation for us. See you next year! Janet, Oregon

Last page of the book and first storm of the season. We were sooo lucky to have this house to come back to and have a nice fire and hot tub. Sorry we could not stay long enough to see a sunset. Had a wonderful time exploring here and hope to come back soon. Thanks again for the wonderful stay. Patrick, Washington

Hi! I have come to Oregon 8 times over a few years. Raised my 2 girls coming to the Oregon coast for family vacations. We come 12-15 hour driving time from Hailey Idaho. Now that I am 52, both my daughters have brought me here on separate trips. It renews my kindred spirit and sets me free! The smells make me say ah, I relax immediately. There is so much to do and see, Oregon coast (do not tell) is a great hidden secret. I will recommend The Waves House to all. Always hate to leave. Your home was wonderful. Thank you! Enjoy the long walks on the beach. Till next time. Charlene, Idaho

Hi Nancy. Weather is lousy, but right now does not much matter. We are relaxing and spending a great deal of time enjoying one anothers company. This could be our downtown place for future last minute getaways. We have been enjoying your vacation home and have decided to be regular visitors. The price is right for a weekend getaway and a weeks stay. Your place is clean and comfortable and thank God, no pet odors! Ron, Oregon

Loved this house and all the amenities. The weather was sunny and then the usual Oregon drizzle but it was still wonderful. Spent the weekend celebrating a 33-year-old birthday, and it was worth the visit. We loved the layout of the house and that the kitchen was well stocked. We hope to come again some day. We really enjoyed our visit!

The Hubby and I decided to spend our birthday weekend here at the beach. Thank you, Nancy, for allowing us the pleasure to share your home. The weather was stormy with wind and rain, exactly what we wanted. We were forced to stay locked up with a Hot Tub and fireplace (very romantic!). Had a great weekend, wine, some cooking and some fish and chips at the Salty Dawg. Thanks again for adding some new memories.

I loved it here. It is so much fun here. My family decided to stay here for Spring Break for 3 days. My brother did not come because he was too lazy so they took me and that is it. I have one brother, His name is Sam. He is 17 years old. Thank you.

Dear Nancy,

I have been meaning to write you a note since we got back from our trip, but I'm sure you know how much work piles up while you are away on vacation. I am just getting a minute to get back to you now.

We stayed at the Waves house and I wanted to tell you how very much we enjoyed this home. The home is just as you have it pictured and so much more. We were all so comfortable there and what an awesome location! Thank you for all of the amenities you provide. We used quite a few of them since we were there for so long.

My 3 year old really enjoyed all the toys, beach pails, and Barbies. She would sit in that bedroom looking through the box for new surprises to play with for a long time. The futon in the master was also nice for her so she could be near us while she slept since we were in a new place and it was strange to her. She also looked at many of your books. We brought along books for her to read as well and I do have to confess that even though I tried not to take any of yours I ended up with 2 of your childrens books (not sure if I left any behind either). Anyway I will send those in the mail to Waves house address if that sounds like a good idea to you.

We also took along three teens and they loved being able to walk to the beach and explore on their own and we loved that we did not have to drive them to get there. They also enjoyed the jacuzzi, of course, and we even got to see a deer in the neighbors yard one night. The TV with lots of stations was also a hit on the rainy days we had.

I personally enjoyed the view of the waves every morning. You did a wonderful job of orienting the house on the lot and arranging the picture windows to capture the most of the view. We have built some homes as well and I know this kind of thing takes careful planning. It was very well done.

Amongst other things my husband was fond of the espresso maker. We got some local coffee from a coffee shop in Newport and he enjoyed experimenting. He even dragged our espresso maker out when we got home. Yeah it gets used again!

We also took your advice and hiked at Cape Perpetua. That was one of the most beautiful hikes we have ever done. Thank you for the suggestion. We did several other trips up and down the coast - what a lovely central location.

I want to let you know that we will definitely be back if you continue to rent this property. We truly enjoyed our vacation - much of that is due to your lovely home where we got to spend time. Thank you for the opportunity to stay at the Waves house instead of a hotel.

I wish you well.

Nancy, We had a wonderful time and loved your place. We will stay again for sure. Thank you and will talk soon.

Good Morning Nancy,

We had another lovely stay at your place. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy the area once again. We are looking forward to doing this again next year with Mom.

Oh! And we did take advantage of the hiking trails nearby. It was a blast!

Thank you Nancy.

Dear Nancy - just wanted to thank you for renting the Waves House to me. We had a great time and the accommodations were lovely. It's a great spot for exploring up and down the coast. The beach is lovely.

I hope we get back there someday.

Hi Nancy. Your place was wonderful, we hope to come next year the first weekend in August again.

Thank you Nancy. We had a great time at The Waves House and really enjoyed that part of the coast. First time to really explore that area. We'll be back.

As I sit here writing this, I am wishing with every fiber of my being that we did not have to go! The house as perfectly stocked, organized and comfortable and has become for many members of the family, our dream house. The location was simply astounding. There were many meals spent on the porch watching the tide roll in and listening to the waves crash. The fact that the wildflower-covered walk down the beach was as beautiful as the clear-watered, clean-sanded, animal-filled beach was simply fantastic. Overall, this house and this place in general has made this vacation one of the best yet! Thank you!

We had an absolutely wonderful week in Waldport making memories and this house allowed it to happen! Thank you for opening up this house, it is beautiful and full of hospitality! Everything was wonderfully stocked and accommodations were perfect! Thank you for the memories!

We had an excellent weekend here, enjoying walks on the beach, great breakfasts together, music, games, and wonderful rest! We even got into town for fish and chips at Mos restaurant! There is so much more to share but we are headed out the door! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We loved our stay here, great hot tub. Do not miss Smelt Park in Yachats and Heceta Light House. We would definitely return.

Amazing, wonderful time this Labor day weekend. Sunshine, Cape Perpetua, the spouting horn and Thors Well were so gorgeous. And we watched a pod of whales frolic while we explored the tide pools. The house is great, LOVED the hot tub, just what our sore muscles needed! We made a sand castle on the beach, best sand castle ever! Thanks for the welcoming bottle of wine and everything!!!

What a comfortable house with everything so well thought out at our fingertips. Truly a place to relax and enjoy while viewing the beautiful ocean! This Waves is one of the nicest homes we have stayed in and we appreciate your attention in making this a memorable place and time! We will keep coming back for R&R to the Oregon coast for many years to come.

Thank you for the stay, Nancy. The place was absolutely perfect. We lucked out with the weather, burnt a fire on the beach, saw Cape Perpetua at high tide, and ate ice cream. Fun times.

Thank you for the returned deposit check. My wife and I were already talking about scheduling another Waves House get away last night over dinner. We really enjoyed the house and we'll be in contact with you. Thanks again!

Hi Nancy. Thank you for such a great weekend. The beach was beautiful and the house was great. We already want to come back again. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. We will be back next year if not sooner!

Thanks Nancy. We enjoyed ourselves very much and would certainly stay again. Thanks again!

I love seeing the photo of the house every time you email me. Really Nancy, this vacation ranked almost equal to the vacation in Italy with my husband in '04. The entire experience, which included Waves House, was just the best. My son will remember this long after I am gone, with many special moments, tighter bonds. Not that I am planning a quick exit! hahaha! It has been almost a month now since we left Oregon, and I have to tell you that the memories are still with us. Just had such a great time. The best to you.

Hi Nancy. Just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for the opportunity to enjoy your home in Waldport. We had a terrific time, enjoyed being in Yachats on July 4th, and loved our long walks on the beach. Of course, eating pie and ice cream for breakfast on the 4th necessitated the long walks on the beach!! Thanks also for making the process so easy. Attached are two pictures I took the very first night we were there. Didn't see another sunset quite like this the rest of the trip so I'm glad I had my camera with me that night!! Thanks again!

Thank you for letting us stay at the beach house. My favorite part was the beach. I had a fun time at the beach house. (a child)

Thank you for letting us use the house. I loved the view from the table. I liked that you could walk down to the beach. It was nice to have a TV in my room. It is a wonderful house. P.S. I loved the hot tub. (a child)

What an amazing experience! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. The memories of this visit will be with us forever. Thank you!

We had an excellent weekend here enjoying walks on the beach, great breakfasts together, music, games and wonderful rest! We even got into town for fish and chips at Mos. There is so much more to share but we are headed out the door. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
