The beach in January
"Nice if antiquated cottage in Nye Beach. Right on the cliff overlooking the water. Steps to the cafes and shops. Big well stocked kitchen, old electric stove. One bedroom down, two up with no doors in between. One bath. Not enough hot water to fill the bath half way.
Overall a charming little house snugged next to a big condo project. Time to replace the lock box. Hard to fit all the keys in there."
On The Beach
"Wonderful! Great view, comfortable house. Fireplace was wonderful! The house is old and some things are a little quirky. The shower/bath didn't have slip grips on the bottom and was a very high tub -- my older mom was afraid of getting in and out of it, so for older people this house might be a little difficult (the stairs to the second floor and down to the laundry room are also very narrow and steep.) The Beach is right around the corner! Super accessible to town - very fun! "
"Had a few days to spare an love "
You'll NEVER Want To Leave!!!
"Although we chose this charming little house because we wanted to visit the aquarium again we simply couldn't make ourselves leave the cozy sanctuary it provided. As the winds howled and the sea pounded the coast, we had the perfect roost from which to watch the majesty of the storm unfold.
It's been a tough year for us, three deaths in the family over the last four months had taken its toll, but the two and a half days we spent here provided us the time and space to just ... be. Thank you for such a wonderful experience--it was just what the doctor ordered!
Ideal Nye beach location
"The house is actually on the beach. Access is half a block away. Everything was warm and comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. Everything seemed to work. It was within easy walking distance of innumerable restaurants and shops. The yard is fenced--a plus for my dog. It met our needs very well."
"we had a great time. the house was are best choice sort walk to the beach. the ablety took cook meals ,and just relax. "
Little beach house
"The house itself was great. Location was great. Beautiful view. However the cleaning charge was extremely high even if you left the place spotless like we did. Most places have a low cleaning fee of around $60-75 but if you leave it trashed they charge a couple hundred. These guys charge 200 no matter what. When i emailed the management company aking if There was a lower rate if we left the house clean they did not respond. There also wasn't any laundry or dish detergent, so you have to bring your own. But the house itself was really a pleasant place to stay. "
Perfect Beach Cottage
"For our first visit to Newport, OR we stayed right on Nye Beach with our two dogs in this charming beach cottage. It was wonderful! Beach access was a block away and superb restaurants were a close walk. A notebook of "tips" had been carefully prepared and was extremely useful. A very reasonably priced cottage--very roomy--with a fantastic location. We loved it and highly recommend it, particularly if you are traveling with your pets."
Location couldn't have been better! Awesome view, right on beach
"As several other reviews stated, this is an OLD house with quirky layout. Steep stairs, pull-chain lights, and deep tub. We found these features appealing. We appreciated the completely fenced in yard for our dog, and sheet/covers provided so that we could allow her on to the couch just like she does at home. The house is steps away from great shops and cafes. The only issue we had was that we were provided a single roll of toilet paper for a 5 day stay. I contacted the management and 2 more rolls appeared on our doorstep (thanks!) but we had already had to buy some to tide us over. There was a broken handle in the tub (still operational but tricky for my kids to manage) and an overhead light didn't work in the living room. Minor things that we worked around. Everything else was good - enough laundry pods, dishwasher pods, trash bags and towels provuded for our family to enjoy the house for the whole stay. We would definitely stay here again!"
"We've never been to Nye Beach; such a nice little community, and the house was perfectly located to walk the beach or stroll down to the shops and restaurants.
The nicer of the beds is on the main level, but small (a double?) and there's a queen upstairs but it's not quite as nice, along with a pair of twin beds for kids.
It's got a dog-friendly yard and is otherwise just a nice small rustic beach cabin.
Also, it has a nice little kitchen but you'll have to fight the poorly placed smoke detector if you dare try the toaster.
All in all we enjoyed it as a couple with dog. "
Fabulous View, Great Location
"On a bluff above the beach. Great for whale watching. One half block into town and one block walk to the beach.
House was funky, clean and comfy!
Could not ask for more!"
Perfect setting with spectacular viwes
"Can't wait to come back! We were able to enjoy meals while watching the ocean, walk to great restaurants and do our laundry before heading home. I loved the windows and fresh ocean air."
Great View Not a Gourmet Kitchen
"We very much enjoyed our stay here. However, there are a few things people should know. 1. The stairs are very very steep and not appropriate for old folks. The bathroom opens into the kitchen, be sure to bring air freshener as there was none. This is not a gourmet kitchen as noted in the write up. Bring your own knives, cast iron and all spices. almost completely out of pepper on our stay. The cleaning crew could use some direction. Under beds, couches and chairs were very dusty, as was the refrigerator vent. The fan over the stove is very noisy as well. Finally, bring electric strips. Almost all of the plug ins were so old and rare, that once you found one, it would not hold a plug in."
"Perfect cabin for dog lovers! The fences yard while still being on the beach was the real winner here. The house, although being pet friendly, was not at all "doggy smelling" or full of fur..quite the opposite: clean with coverings for the furniture if your dog likes to sleep on the couch. Nice. We like to get away to the Oregon coast and this was our first time staying in the Nye District. This house/cabin is close to everything and we did very little driving, finding everything we needed within walking distance, except the presto logs!"
Perfect dog friendly cabin!
"This was our second stay here and enjoyed it immensely. We have two dogs and the set up is perfect with the fenced yard but still easy access to the beach! Also love the way it is decorated and the colors in the kitchen! Only downside is beds which are a little hard for our taste..."
"We were very pleased with the location and the views! This is a great place to enjoy scenic views of the ocean, spot some whales, and watch the fog roll in after sunset"
Nye Beach Sweet Spot
"This was a perfect location to get to the beach.
Easy access to all the Nye beach shops and restaurants
The place is dated and quirky(dont make toast in the kitchen lest you set off the smoke alarm
Pull chains on all the lights
However the location makes all these things inconsequential "
Perfect View, easy beach access, very clean!
"My family had a wonderful 5 night stay here. Home is very clean which is a big deal for me. Great views, easy access to restaurants and beach. Best of all the views are wonderful. I would reccomend and stay there again."
"Perfect from start to finish. Just what I was looking for. Not too Big, Not too Small, Great Location, Beautiful View. Very clean!"
Had a great time "On the Beach"
"Clean and convenient..beautiful view! Beach access a little uphill walk but manageable. Perfectly dog friendly with total fenced, grassy yard. Only one suggestion...replace one of the swivel chairs with a recliner. Will return."
Fall Break in Oregon
"The cottage was simple and sweet and met my expectations. Its proximity to the ocean was great. We did encounter a couple issues: the lock box did not work and we were unable to enter the cottage after a day of driving. The rental had not been cleaned either since the previous guests. The property management company was very helpful and came right away to let us in and sent someone to clean. We are pretty easy going so went and got a beer while waiting. I imagine other people might have been upset. We had a great next day on the coast visiting the light houses and eating fresh fish. "
Old but Good
"We had a great time at this house. It is definitely an older house and the deck has very little privacy due to the condos next door but we still really enjoyed it. Great access to an awesome beach and shops. It is a 5 minute drive to all the major attractions in Newport. I was skeptical when we first walked into the house but I ended up very happy with it! The house was stocked with everything you would need which was great."
Paying for a view
"Had a wonderful vacation on the Oregon coast as we always do. This little cottage had access to everything Nye Beach and some of the best views around. The house itself is old and run down. Just the basics to get by for the week. The electrical outlets are sketchy at best if they worked at all. The house was clean but very outdated. This house is not special needs accessible. The stairway is extremely steep and narrow. Having a fenced in yard for the pups was a plus. If you want views of the ocean this house is for you. If you want amenities or anything modern, this house is not for you."
Eclectic Beach Cottage
"The location of this rental is excellent! You are minutes from historic Nye Beach and all of the restaurants and shops. The cottage is spacious and has about everything you would need for a short stay. There are definitely a few things that need to be updated and the beds, pillows, and blankets are less than stellar. Overall we had a nice stay without any issues."
Super Convenient Location
""On The Beach" is a SUPER convenient location. Walk right around the corner to the beach access as well as all the shops and restaurants Nye Beach has to offer.
The home has all the amenities needed for comfortable stay. The enclosed front porch is nice to store all your beach stuff.
Note that the 2 parking spaces are in a detached garage. If you have anything taller than a Honda CRV you're not going to fit. The CRV fit but our Dodge Journey with roof box did not. So that was a major bummer and the description does not disclose that. The garage has 2 separate roll up doors. One is not motorized. The other appears to be motorized but the motor was not working at the time of our stay.
Other minor things that would be nice to have fixed. There is a curtain separating the 2 bedroom spaces upstairs. The curtain is not secure and everytime we went to open/close it the rod would come shooting down. Also, there is only a sheer curtain in the upstairs bedroom with the queen bed. It would be really nice to have at least a room darkening curtain to block out the street lights.
Overall we had a positive experience."
