Staycation that you dream about
"This was more then we anticipated, lovely view, awesome accommodation, all the comforts I loved. Would definitely come back, so centrally located. "
A great place to relax and unwind.
"This unit offers a nice view of the ocean, has a cozy gas fireplace, and is in walking distance of the beach. It's open layout might not suit everyone, but it is well appointed and maintained."
"My family loved this home. So beautiful with everything you need to have a relaxing stay. The views of the ocean were amazing. We will be back!"
"My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay! Such a beautiful home and a great view of the ocean. It was a very peaceful place and very relaxing. Only thing we felt uncomfortable about is at night you can see everything inside and we were very visible to anyone that might be going by. I'd say some new curtains and front door curtain. Still 5 out of 5 stars! When can we move in? "
"really nice place quiet and relaxing enjoyed the deck looking out at the ocean"
"We had a wonderful time. Beautiful location, close to beach, beautiful home and we are already planning our next trip there. "
"Great location, beautiful view, everything in great shape. Really only sleeps 2 comfortably, not 4. This is our second stay and will probably stay again next year.
Beautiful and Tranquil
"This is one of the best places I've ever stayed on the Oregon Beach. Just a lovely place and quite close to the ocean. "
Great beach rental
"Great spot for a couple or family with small children with great amenities and proximity to the beach."
Central coast stopover
" Overall this condo served our purpose for the Oregon coast stay. The view of the ocean was exceptional and the location near Nye Beach was close and very convenient as well as the access to the main beach. However, they need to reaccess the variety of linens available. For example, only two hand towels were found. Also, for this value the condo should have at least one premium channel available on the TV. "
"We really enjoy this property when we need to have some quiet time together. A short walk to the beach and short drive to stores and the lighthouse. This trip we were able to see some whale activity around the lighthouse. "
Our Agate Beach Get Away
"We're from San Angelo, Tx. and celebrated my husbands 74th birthday and our 54th wedding anniversary while there two weeks! The view was beautiful and so near to beach access. One thing we didn't care for: We found at night the furnace wants to make a "singing noise" in the loft. The gas fire place was all we needed in the morning or evening. This home is very comfortable and we highly recommend it to others.
"This is the nicest place we have ever stayed at the coast. It was roomy and comfortable, and the view from the deck was gorgeous. The only *tiny* problem was that the bushes in front of the house were overgrown to the point that they hid the house number. Oh, and the whirlpool tub is a nice amenity, but it would be nicer if the hot water tank were big enough to fill it. It's not worth using as is. This is not a big deal to me, though, and we would absolutely stay here again!"
"The condo was exactly as described on the listing. Being there was very relaxing. Will rent again!"
My favorite place to stay at the coast!
"Private, quiet, beautiful views"
Family weekend in Newport
"We had s great time! This property is located very near Agate Beach as well as a very cool light house. The lighthouse area has a little museum type area and was way more than we expected! We would definitely stay here again!"
Sweet place for a couple to relax and see the ocean
"A Beautiful spacious, yet Intimate condo with great views of the beach in a quiet area . Thanks gora great getaway!"
Gorgeous Condo, Stunning Views
"Property was as described, clean and well-maintained. When we arrived (a bit early) the manager was there putting fresh batteries in the TV remote. There was no need for further contact during our visit due to a guest binder with full explanations about what to do. The coffee pot was on the blink, and we left a note for the manager advising them to replace it. We have already recommended the property to a friend going to the coast later this year. While in town, we loved walking the beach, and eating at local restaurants (Local Ocean Seafood, Clearwater, Rogue Brewery), but enjoyed the opportunity to have 2 meals a day at "home." We highly recommend this condo. "
"We enjoyed this condo for our Mother's Day weekend. It really only sleeps 2 people (has an opened loft, a futon bed pullout) so best for a couple or small family. Very clean, great kitchen, wonderful gas fireplace and they have upgraded the TV to a flat screen. The television remote did not appear to work consistently and was confusing so instructions would be helpful. We absolutely loved the cathedral windows and view! Unfortunately, an inconsiderate person parked their gigantic boat in front of our view to the ocean. It didn't block the view but was a formidable eyesore in the foreground. On our last morning, this boat owner walked by and said "sorry I parked my boat here but I had no room". I didn't even know what to say because it was not excusable for him to obstruct our view because of his boat parking problem. I'm relaying this in hopes that the owners advocate for a no parking zone along the road where these condos face the ocean. "
A Birthday to Remember
" Very clean, organized, and great view of the ocean. Individual covered parking so no door dings. My wife had an incredible time for her birthday and we will be back. "
"Great location, directory across from beach! Beautifully designed home with artistic details. Very clean, but the best thing about the home is the amazing view of the Pacific. "
"Our perfect choice for the two of us to get away. We both work a lot and needed to injoy the view and spend time together. This place was perfect for both!
Agate Beach Cottage at Meritage is a gem! I will book again.
" The interior was beautiful, the kitchen had all that we needed to make meals, the loft bed was comfortable and provided a great view of the shore. We were a short drive to the aquarium, and enjoyed a great meal at Clearwater restaurant. We also liked viewing and exploring the nearby Devil’s Punchbowl and Yaquina lighthouse. We walked on the beach everyday. We simply didn’t want to leave. "
Wonderful Vacation Rental
"This is a beautiful townhouse in a great location. Quick access to the beach and town."
a relax vacation to the Oregon coast
"This is the first time that my family vacations in Oregon coast. This property and the location made a wonderful first impression of the Oregonian coastline. A perfect location to enjoy both the sandy beach and the rocky coast."
Rocky start, improves over 5 days
"Finding our place was tricky. The hospitality app limits the description and (google)map to Oceanview rd.The exact address requires two more short street turns. The unit number is blocked by shrubery. We called the assistance number and eventually got in with verbal help. It's lovely inside. The photo in the rental ad makes it appear as if you can walk straight out to the beach. The beach is across the busy road, and down an embankment not walkable. Access is close, down the road by car. Agate beach is wonderful with warm sand dunes and good kite flying and walking. The lighthouse and surrounding area is interesting to visit with wildlife and views. The town is a short drive away with all conveniences available. The old town has restaurants, and some shopping. A little to the pier where fish come in further and over the bridge to the aquarium. The place was peaceful at night. Great refrigerator and Jenn-Aire range made meal making easy. In the end, we were happy to be there."
"We had a wonderful time at the Oregon coast. And our stay at Agate Beach Cottage was the highlight of our trip. Beautiful, clean, quiet. Just perfect! We will be back for sure, and will recommend to friends and family."
Amazing place, exactly what we needed
"This was our first mini-vacation as a family since our 4 and a half daughter was born. This place was far from disappointing. The pictures don't so it justice, and the feel is indescribable, haven't felt such peace in a while. The location was perfect, just a short walk to the beach, and a short drive to Nye Beach area, which has great restaurants and cute shops. We didn't have to contact the management company, but part of that is because all their instructions are clear. The house itself is in great shape and very clean. We will definitely be working our schedule around next time we go to Newport, just so we can stay there again!"
"Our stay was so peaceful and amazing!"
Beautiful ocean views
"This was a beautiful house with a lovely kitchen, gorgeous views and amazing beach! We will be back for sure!"
Best home away from home!
"We have stated at the Agate Beach Cottage several times. It is our goto spot for a weekend getaway. Its is always clean, quiet and relaxing. Closet to downtown if we want to do some shopping or enjoy some local food. "
Practically perfect in every way
"What a special property! The views are great, the place is comfortable and nicely decorated, it was spotlessly clean, the kitchen is well equipped, and I slept well on the upstairs bed. Highly recommended!
A few things you might want to know:
1. As the pictures indicate, the huge front windows offer great views...both in and out. If you're a privacy freak, you'll want to lower the blinds.
2. If you're a serious cook, you'll be disappointed by the underpowered gas burners on the Jenn-Air dual fuel range. But you'll love the whisper-quiet Kitchen Aid dishwasher.
3. The upstairs bath has no shower, just a jetted tub. If you want to take a shower, you'll have to use the downstairs bath.
4. The first "step" onto the wooden walkway leading to the front porch is a short, basically unnavigable 45 degree ramp. I recently had hip surgery, so it was a challenge to step up to the walkway.
None of these things, however, takes away from the fact that this is by far the nicest place I've stayed in Newport in the 13 years I've been vacationing there. You won't be disappointed!"
Luxurious home away from home
"My family loved our stay here. The big, tall windows and the open kitchen were great features. We had a great time playing games at the table and reading books by the fire. I was probably our fault, but we thought we were within walking distance to the beach from the photos. You'll have to drive down the road for 1 minute to get beach access. It's still super close.
I would definitely stay here again. Very professional and great location to many of the spots on our stay."
"The property was exactly as it was described. When we arrived we were impressed with how clean everything was in this very well maintained unit. It was perfectly located to look out your front windows at the beach. The owners have equipped the unit with everything you could want to enjoy a weekend at the beach! They have obviously put in a lot of thought with decorating the unit as well with many small touches that make it so cozy, you'll want to stay much longer! The beach access just down the street, there's plenty to look at shopping at old town Newport and a short drive up the coast will take you to the outlet mall in Lincoln City. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to spend your vacation to anyone!"
Agate beach at meritage
"The rental was amazing "
Agate Beach Cottage was beyond our expectations
"Our stay at Agate Beach Cottage was definitely beyond our expectations. The property is every bit as beautiful and expansive as the pictures on VRBO (where we found it) showed, and it is nicely furnished and decorated to enhance the open floor plan without anything overdone. It's in a great location, very close both to beautiful Agate Beach and to town. It was immaculately clean when we arrived. The kitchen is stocked with anything you could need. The home is well insulated and soundproofed; it was a very quiet space for the 2 nights we spent there, and we wished we had stayed longer. My only, ONLY comment is that the upstairs bathroom door needs some tweaking of the hinges. You cannot fully shut the door because the latch doesn't catch; it looks shut, but a little push opens it (even when you think you've locked it!). It was a tiny issue that in no way marred our stay in this gem of a rental. The management company was very communicative, and I felt that if we'd had any issues requiring assistance, they would be there for us. We would return to Agate Beach Cottage in a heartbeat, and have already recommended it to others."
Second time as awesome as the first
"I enjoyed staying at this property so much in February that I booked it again for a getaway in June. It was just as great the second time around. I appreciated the new outdoor furniture, and the new step up to the wooden walkway leading to the front porch is a big improvement. Thanks for a wonderful stay!"
"Had a wonderful stay at Agate Beach. The view is fabulous. Short walk to the beach. If only the sun would have been out more often!"
4th of July weekend
"The condo is in a great location hidden off of a quiet street across from Agate beach. The inside of the condo is well appointed. We both enjoyed the open windows facing the Pacific ocean, while relaxing downstairs. The gentle breeze quickly cooled off the main living area every evening.
However secondary to the large windows the bedroom upstairs is very exposed and did make the stay a little less intimate than what I was looking for. The Yard outside was also incredibly unkempt and the pride of ownership did not transfer to the yard as much as the house itself. I believe a property is more than just the interior of a home. The best food we had was at Ove downtown Newport. "
what a place
"everything great-- except tv problems"
Excellent place and location
"My wife and I stayed for 3 nights at the Agate Beach Cottage. It had a great latin near the Beach, Newport downtown and the coast sights. We could not have asked for more in a rental stay."
Beauty at the Beach!
"We celebrated our 48th anniversary in this gorgeous home in Newport! We were impressed with the cleanliness and the decor. The condo is finished beautifully. The gas fireplace was awesome! Everything worked well. Directions for use are well laid out. We would recommend highly!"
Perfect place for Ocean watching
"We had a wonderful time in this beach house. Floor to cathedral ceiling windows were perfect for watching the ocean all day. Open windows to hear it perfectly. Well maintained and very clean. Beautiful Condo"
