Waterfront, Dog-Friendly Home with a Full Kitchen & Hot Tub in a Great Location

Escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life with a stay at this luxurious two-bedroom Waldport vacation rental! With an open floor plan, updated amenities, a private hot tub, and an ideal location only a short walk from the pristine beach, this home is perfect for any occasion!

The Wakonda Oceanfront Escape is a beautiful home with a stunning view that is sure to take your breath away. Overlooking miles of sandy beaches in each direction, this home is the perfect backdrop for your next family getaway! With the ocean just a quarter mile from your door, you'll appreciate the convenience of the easy beach access. You'll love spending an afternoon splashing in the waves!

Downtown Waldport is just three miles north of this home! Grab some dinner at the Salty Dawg Bar & Grill or pick up some trinkets at the Waldport Flea Market. The cute coastal town of Yachats is only about five miles from your front door, where you'll find a variety of restaurants, galleries, and shops. The well-known local Big Stump Beach is only a mile away.

This home can comfortably accommodate guests. The minimalist modern decor incorporates the coastal theme to create a home that is bright and welcoming. You'll appreciate the views of the ocean from the numerous picture windows scattered throughout every room of this home. There are also two levels of ocean-facing decks with partial glass wind-shields.

Whether you're throwing together a quick snack or a full holiday meal, the full kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need! Cooking (and cleaning up after the meal) seems like less of a chore when the kitchen is facing the ocean. Up to four guests can sit at the dining room table, although a breakfast bar offers additional seating so that meal times truly can be a family affair! A table on the upper deck is the perfect quiet place to enjoy your coffee while watching the sunrise.

With a soft king bed, the main bedroom invites you to relax in comfort while embracing the oceanfront location! Fall asleep while admiring the sunset from the comfort of your own bed or keep the sliding glass door open to have a seaside breeze blow throughout the room. You'll find a twin bed in a unique nook in the main bedroom. This bed is perfect for a young child who needs their own privacy and space but wants to still be close to their parents. After a long day, relax with a bubble bath in the jetted tub in the main bathroom. The second bedroom is a comfy room with a queen bed, plenty of built-in storage, and a window seat! A sofabed in the living room offers additional sleeping options and has comfortable memory foam. You are sure to feel well-rested and rejuvenated after a peaceful night's sleep as all of the beds have down comforters and Egyptian cotton sheets.

While the calming sounds of the waves offering a soothing background noise, this high-tech home is equipped with a surround sound stereo system! You can plug in your iPod or stream Pandora and the whole house will be full of your favorite music! You'll be able to stay up-to-date on your favorite cable shows on the 50-inch LED TV. On cool nights, an electric fireplace with a tile hearth will keep you warm while providing a romantic ambiance. Wireless Internet is provided so that you can keep in touch with coworkers or post your vacation photos so friends and family back home will feel as though they're enjoying your vacation with you!

No trip is complete without your dogs! Your well-behaved dogs are welcome to accompany you at this dog-friendly home (though a nightly fee per dog and minimum fee per stay will apply). A heated outdoor shower is a great way to rinse off after playing on the sand. Don't worry about getting too dirty, as a washer and dryer are provided for your convenience.

Whether you're only here for a few days or planning on a longer trip, you'll fall in love with the numerous modern conveniences of this beachfront Oregon Coast vacation rental.

This house is right on the beach with hot tub! My family loved it.
Johnny K. Mar 2022
Loved the location best view ever very clean good beds
Janet S. Feb 2022
We booked this home for my best friends birthday and it did not disappoint. Great location right on the beach, clean and lots of natural light during the day. The two decks were awesome to enjoy morning coffee while watching the surf roll in. The home has comfortable beds and accommodated us nicely. The hot tub was a plus. We will be back to enjoy this home again sometime soon.
Megan M. Feb 2022
This house was really lovely and in good condition. The views were fantastic and we spent a lot of time out on the deck. Important to know: In October 2021, due to stormy weather, this entire section of beach had a major washout. The main beach access washed away. It is now very steep, to the extent that someone tied a rope to provide help on the way down. My husband and the dogs were able to get up and down without issue, but I needed it since I am recovering from a bad sprain. Anyone with mobility issues would have difficulty getting down to the beach, so this location probably isn't a good option if you were planning on taking a stroll with grandma. A couple other downsides: the house is very close to 101 so traffic can be loud. The main bedroom is on the beach side, so it's not much of an issue, but the second bedroom is on the highway side. Also, the living room is on the highway side, the beach view is from the kitchen and dining room. If you were stuck inside due to weather, it would be a little difficult to enjoy the view. We lucked out with the weather, so we could enjoy the deck, which was wonderful. The dining room and living room are also pretty small. It was fine for the two of us, but I think it would be a little tight for 4 adults.
Kelly M. Dec 2021
Clean, well equipped, beautiful beach and views
Michelle A. Dec 2021
The view of the ocean is spectacular, and the home is very sweet. There are stains on the carpeted stairs, and the window sills and doorframes show the effects of constant sea air, but this was easily offset by the setting, well-stocked kitchen, ample linens, and comfortable, cozy furniture.
However, the heater in the master bedroom did not work. I contacted maintenance the night we checked in and someone came out the following afternoon and got it to work…for an hour. I phoned, texted, and e-mailed and never got a response. We did our best to stay warm, but there was a large storm, including snow (beautiful!) so those were a couple cold nights. I was disappointed in the lack of communication, but otherwise would return in a heartbeat.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Michelle. The homeowner is working on the windows, and the heater is currently working. We do hope to see you again!
Lois R. Nov 2021
Clean, right on the ocean, quiet. It would be nice if they would leave more information on running the hot tub.
Susan F. Oct 2021
The home has a security issue due to one sliding glass door not having a lock and needing to be blocked with a one by one board so nobody can enter. Then every time you want to see the view you have to remove the wood and replace it. Also, the house is crawling with ants. They will be in everything and on every surface.
Manager response:
Hi, Susan! We're sorry you had a couple of frustrations during your visit. Ants are a common issue on the coast when it rains. Bait has been set out to help mitigate the matter. The homeowner is working with the glass company to install new windows and doors. Thank you!
Katherine W. Oct 2021
We loved the views, the hot tub, and the well stoked kitchen! Great holiday.
Karen W. Aug 2021
Beach,closeness, clean, wonderful.
Nicole Z. Jun 2021
Our stay was peaceful and the views of ocean were fantastic. We spent hours Wally the beach and enjoying the deck. Thank you for letting us stay and enjoy your beautiful beach home!
ROBERT P. Jun 2021
House was very nice. View was great
Samantha F. May 2021
The view, the bed, the tub, the decor! Love this house! We had a great time!
Steve C. May 2021
Beautiful beach view. Cute place.
Dustin G. Nov 2020
If you're coming to the coast, you wanna be close to the ocean. You can't get much closer than this, as high tide comes right up to the property line. Beautiful views from both decks of the house.

The interior is very nice and modern as well. We were there during some pretty big storms and it was a great place to hunker down and watch and listen to the storm.
Stephen F. Oct 2020
The house was awesome and the location was perfect! Everything about this house was awesome. We had a minor issue the first day and it was taken care of immediately. Great customer service! I would definitely recommend Vacasa in general and this home in particular.
Greg C. Aug 2020
The beach house had the right amount of space for us, and the upper deck was perfect for watching the sun rise and the waves move (in our case, we saw some whales from the house - a wonderful moment!) Loved the jacuzzi tub, and the hot tub was easy to manage.
Kristen F. Aug 2020
The overwhelming smell of urine greets you as you walk through the front door. The yard is full of waist high weeds. Don’t believe the pictures. The furniture is cheap (it is not what is in the pictures) and it is disgusting. Dog and cat hair cover EVERYTHING!!! The walls are stained with food smudges and dirt. The carpets are filthy. There are bitten off fingernails on a windowsill. The hot tub is full of sand. The pullout bed had food and human hair all over the sheets. There are cobwebs in the corners. The bedding and throw pillows are stained and dirty. There are no screens on the windows. Ants come through the window moldings in the kitchen and cover the countertops each morning. The floors were not swept or mopped. The bedroom in the front of the house has moldings missing and a broken light fixture. The bathroom on the main floor has a huge window without a window covering making it impossible to use. I had to hang up a sheet over the window. There is mold in the main floor bathroom. The decks are dirty. The BBQ is dirty. I paid $3000 to stay for week. I spent the first 2 days cleaning and washing the sheets and blankets and being upset that I rented this home and paid such a huge amount for such a run down, dirty place. It ruined our vacation. I am still upset about it.
Manager response:
Kristen, we are sorry to hear that your experience with us was not the pleasant and relaxing vacation for which we strive to facilitate. We apologize for the cleanliness and maintenance issues you encountered that negatively impacted your stay and we appreciate you allowing us to refund you for the inconvenience. Our property manager confirms the weeds from the yard have been pulled, the home has been deep cleaned, shades were added and all lights are in working order. Again, we are very sorry for this disappointing stay and hope you will allow us the opportunity to host you in the future.
Phaedra M. Jul 2020
Easy local beach access, fully stocked kitchen, working gas bbq, comfortable beds
Angel M. Jun 2020
Everything was neat. Plenty of blankets and towels. Hot tub was ready to go.
Britt B. Jun 2020
This house was perfect for a girls' weekend! We loved the hot tub and being right on the beach. Cape Perpetua and other hiking adventures were also just a short drive away!
Dianne G. Feb 2020
We love staying in this beautiful home! There are views from the dining room and kitchen, master bedroom, and master bathroom jacuzzi tub that are just to die for. The home was very clean and in the kitchen had everything we needed to feel at home. The hot tub outside also had a wonderful view of the waves meeting the beach. So romantic and lovely!
Mike W. Feb 2020
The hot tub was nice and the house was very clean upon arrival. If you have dogs, just know this house is literally right on US 101 so it is slightly scary coming/going to the beach if your dog gets loose or runs off the beach (like mine did). The house has a fenced back yard.
Mark C. Jan 2020
We loved the view the comfort and peacefulness
The views are absolutely stunning, and access to the beach very easy. The hot tub and porches were lovely.

However, all dishes, dishware, cookware and silverware were filthy. Dishwasher did not work. Black mold in corners of bedroom. No wine glasses. MANY hidden fees. Not really very happy with it overall.
Manager response:
We are sorry to read you were disappointed with your accommodations. We inspected the home for black mold and were unable to find any, and we have verified the dishwasher is working. We will do an inventory in the kitchen so we can replace any missing items. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future.
Ryan R. Dec 2019
Perfect ocean front, pet friendly home with a hot tub. It is smack dab between Waldport and Yachats so you can easily spend time in both towns and have your own beach right in front.
Robin R. Nov 2019
This home was so fantastic, my husband and I and our friends drove 14 hours from Salt Lake City Utah and it was worth the drive! The beds were incredibly comfortable the view is fantastic and the jetted tub overlooking the sea was just the best thing you could have asked for relaxing after a long day.The kitchen was fantasic, how nice it is to be able to cook dinner and look at the ocean while enjoying a glass of wine. Located centrally this home gave us easy access to Waldport, Newport, and yachats. Nothing was left to chance there was massive amounts of blankets pillows bath towels, the heater works fantastic we were warm and cozy the entire time. The home actually had coffee maker coffee grinder, and the local store had amazing local coffee beans to choose from. and enough cookware for us to use during our entire stay, I would recommend this home for anyone that wants a stunning ocean view home while in Oregon, I couldn't pull my husband away he would just sit on the deck 4 hours and look out to the Sea, we cannot wait to come back!
Ernie M. Oct 2019
We loved everything about this house. We had a great time. The only thing I would say was it was a little dirty and ants everywhere. Other than that we made the best of our time and unplugged.
James B. Aug 2019
Beautiful place, beautiful views! Would definitely do it again!
Vikki L B. Aug 2019
Wide, long stretches of sugar fine sand. Easy public access though stairs right back of the house would be fantastic! Photos of back yard are deceptive; it does not look at all like this now. Backyard is not grassy nor manicured.
Manager response:
We are currently working on yard maintenance and will be updating pictures soon. Thank you!
Heidi V. Jul 2019
Ocean beach was great. Weather was good. Rental was clean. Dog Dishes and doggie bags was a nice touch. Folks enjoyed the hot tub. Really hot water for showers.
April M. Jun 2019
We loved our 1 night stay here and wished we had stayed here longer!
Chris B. Apr 2019
Family loved this house - awesome views, beach is a quick walk, hot tub was great. View from kitchen, table & deck was outstanding. Plenty of towels & house nicely decorated. Outdoor shower for sand and dog was awesome! Location on the coast was perfect - plenty of tide pools & rocks to explore a short drive away and the beach the house was on was perfect for swimming & fun. We had a blast.
Laura G. Apr 2019
The house was perfect for a girls weekend. The view was incredible from the house. The pictures didn't do it justice. The hot tub was perfect for the 5 of us and the beds were SO comfortable.
The only thing I didn't like was there are no stairs from the house to the beach. There is a public access but it was a little steep and you slipped easily.
Other than that we loved the house and will be booking it again in the future.
Tallisha N. Mar 2019
We had my daughters 18th Birthday there, the house was everything advertised !!! Loved the Hot Tub the view is absolutely breath taking. And the house was beautiful ! We had a Wonderful time.
Rebecca M. Jan 2019
This place was fantastic! Right on the beach (access to the beach it a little down the way, not far). Great views and just a comfortable place to stay. We loved the upper deck where we could sit and enjoy the sunset and allow the dogs to run in the back yard. The whole house was pretty well appointed. We found everything to be in good shape and really enjoyed having the hot tub right there! A few little things: The backyard is not finished so dogs may need to be cleaned off when coming inside and oddly with 2 coffee pots and a grinder in the house there was no coffee (just so you are prepared as many homes through Vacasa do have a few basics on hand they have spices and lots of pots and pans and baking sheets but no basics on hand). Lastly it is right on a busy highway so the noise at night may bother some, it did not bother out kids though! Overall it was the perfect get away for our family
gail m. Nov 2018
You cannot get any closer to the ocean! Breath taking.
tonya s. Oct 2018
Loved the home! Clean and beautiful. The view was breathtaking. I will definitely stay again. The parking was definitely a tight squeeze in the tiny driveway and front parking. The only other thing was we weren’t able to enjoy the amazing jacuzzi bath due to running out of hot water so quickly... but there was a hot tub which was lovely.
Felica D. Oct 2018
Love the layout and location of this house. Charming decor and comfortable beds. Steps from the beach.
Shirley R. Sep 2018
We loved the privacy of the beach and the view was fantastic. The beach access should be improved, the little gate is to tempting for the adventurous. The home was clean and the dogs loved the yard. We will be back.
Andrea B. Aug 2018
The house is just gorgeous and set up wonderfully- The best beach access we’ve ever had, and the beach itself was super private! Almost no neighbors- we definitely want to come back!!
Deborah L. Jul 2018
Listed as having a fireplace, it was electric and did not work. The home itself was a bit worn. Maintenance required.
Manager response:
We did not have any trouble with the fireplace when inspecting it and are sorry to see this guest did. We ask that guests please call if advertised amenities are not working so we can assist them.
Barbie P. Jul 2018
We spent two weeks at this gem on the Central Oregon Coast. The views and ambiance we’re exquisite. Kitchen & BBQ grill were fully sufficient for preparing meals and saving money on not eating out all of the time. The hot tub with a view of the ocean was relaxing and therapeutic after a day of kayaking or LONG walks on the beach. The beach was clean and miles long. Soaking/jet tub in downstairs bathroom has a great ocean view. Great location to visit aquarium, sea lion caves, tidepooling, many restaurants and quaint little beach communities. We flew into Portland and drove down the coast. Overall, a wonderful rejuvenating and relaxing vacation!
Douglas R. May 2018
So relaxing to sit on the glass wall deck and enjoy the ocean just yards away. Would be five star hit except that getting down to the beach from the yard was jumping off a waist high bank and having to crawl back over it to get to the place. Parking is very limited and a pain, would be a challenge if one had a larger vehicle. Aside from that, was a very nice house, great view, and located in a beautiful part of the Oregon Coast that has a lot less traffic and tourist crowding to deal with.
Gayle D. May 2018
We had an amazing, relaxing time. The home is beautiful, the hot tub is relaxing and the walks on the beach were magnificent.
James S. Apr 2018
The beach was close and the house had a great view. Bedrooms comfortable. Downstairs bathroom had a wonderful tub.
Galina P. Apr 2018
Quick beach access but would have liked the gate to be working for the kids.
Fairhaven Recovery Homes . Mar 2018
All we needed was available to is
Laurie W. Jan 2018
This home is the best we have stayed in our excursions on the coast. Beautiful view and comfy beds and accommodations! Easy access to beach and local trips to the surrounding area.
Edward K. Jan 2018
This home was absolutely amazing! When they say 75 ft from the beach they really mean it's right there. The hot tub was wonderful with the moon shining down on the ocean. I would highly recommended this home and location!!
Darrin J. Jan 2018
Nice stay and helpful staff.
Patricia D. Jan 2018
We stayed Mon-Wed at this beautiful home and can't wait to go back. Everything about it was perfect for two adults, and perhaps two couples. The location - between Newport and Yachats - was great. Nothing is very far away. We took trips each day from Lincoln City to the north, to south of Yachats.

The home itself was LOVELY. I loved all the high-quality decorating details. The home looked classy, not filled with the sort of cheap "beachy" looking stuff that you sometimes find. The master bed was SO COMFY, and the master bath was exceptional. Honestly, I could have lived in the jetted tub - roomy enough for two :)

The location was PERFECT - just steps from the sand so beach walks in the morning and evening were easy. As for comments about the highway noise? You could hear cars and trucks, but nothing that was bothersome. After a while, like the ocean, it was white noise and not a big deal at all.

Finally, kudos to Vacasa for the great branding and extra touches that made you feel like you were staying in a 5-star resort, instead of a standard vacation rental, right down to the Vacasa logo-embroidered towels! If I had a home to rent, I would go with Vacasa.
Chad J. Jan 2018
If your looking for a beach escape, this is great. Lots of sand, close to a variety of beach fronts, good dining all around. Beautiful views. Bring your small car
Charles S. Jan 2018
Home was in a beautiful spot. Great to walk right out into beach and enjoy the coast.
BAILEY D. Nov 2017
The view from the home is spectacular. The kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfasts and dinners, the bedrooms were cozy and comfy. LOTS of extra blankets and pillows. I would definitely stay here again!
Kristen B. Oct 2017
Had an amazing and relaxing stay here! View is amazing! Waldport and yachts are great towns!
John L. Sep 2017
This home was a perfect fit for 4 of us who get together every year for a trip to the Oregon coast. Great beach access, very nice hot tub, good kitchen with plenty of cookware & spices. The second bedroom is very tight with the queen bed in it was the bed is very comfortable.
Jean K. Aug 2017
The house was everything we wanted on the coast with comfortable Amenities and beautiful views.
Deanna A. Jul 2017
The house was exactly as everyone stated in prior comments...on the beach and on PCH with noise and traffic. That still did not interfere with a wonderful time and a beautiful place. They must have been in process on the backyard as there was a huge heap of sand/bark and no fence installed (laying in the yard - new). The hot tub was a bonus!
Traci V. Jul 2017
I was lucky enough to had 4 xpens with me so i could make a fencing of my own in order to keep our dogs safe and contained since there was no fencing anymore yet we noticed there were fencing around for installing so we are pretty sure in future we will have that again. So we are happy ! Thanks
Linda L. Jun 2017
It was a beautiful view and a pretty home . We enjoyed the family time!
Trista M. Mar 2017
We loved staying there. My kids loved being able to walk right out to the beach
Mukti S. Feb 2017
This house has a beautiful view and great access to the beach. However, we will not stay here again. Unfortunately it is right off the highway. The living room view is Highway 101 as well as the second bedroom. The traffic noise is so loud it is almost impossible to sleep without ear plugs. The outside deck is somewhere I like to spend a lot of time however this deck is not conducive to that. It is very small and chopped up because the staircase is in the middle of it. There is 1 uninviting table and 2 chairs. The hot tub is literally right up against the neighbor's window. Absolutely zero privacy. I think this house would be fine for just 1 couple who stays in the master.
Marianne W. Feb 2017
This home is perfectly adequate, however you must keep a very close eye on children and pets. This home is literally just steps off the barrier what so ever. Cars and trucks are traveling 50 mph or more. Also, very noisy at nite.
The home itself is clean and comfortable and adequately stocked.
Patti P. Feb 2017
loved the house
Paula L. Feb 2017
The house was beautiful and the view incomparable. However, the oven needs to be replaced - tended to clang whenever it was used. Also, I recommend staying here off season as the houses next door are very close making hot tubing an activity to do only if the house next door is empty.
Beautiful rooms and such comfortable beds!
Lesli K. Feb 2017
I love the convenience and comfort of this house . We did notice that the dishes in the cabinets were all dirty, and the dishwasher leaked all over the floor. However, this is the second time I have stayed here and I will stay again!!!
Michael A. Oct 2016
We loved the location of this house. The beach was steps from rhe back door and the view from the house and deck was beautiful. Since we had a small dog, the grassy little yard was great, plus he loved the beach too. We enjoyed our time there.
Edward G. Oct 2016
Location is tops. Very clean. Loved the view.
Teela L. Oct 2016
The view and the kitchen are standouts at this rental. We had a gorgeous, sunny day and spent it comfortably on the deck and the kitchen was well laid out and spacious. The bedrooms are just fine, but we would have liked a little more space or in the living area.
Jane S. Oct 2016
The views and weather were phenomenal on the Oregon in September and this house lived up to my expectations for the most part aside from the master bedroom smelling extremely bad of dog urine.
Melissa E. Sep 2016
If you want a house with a great yard for dogs and amazing beach access this is the house. We had 5 adults and 3 dogs so the living room was a little small for us, but the yard and beach made up for that. The fenced yard was great for the dogs and there was a gate that opened to a path that lead right down to the beach. The beach was gorgeous and private. Because the beach was just right outside the yard and private we never had to worry about leashing the dogs. The living room was a little cramped with the number of people we had and one of the bedrooms was fairly small, but the balcony, yard and amazing beach made up for it. For a smaller group this house would be perfect.
Donald R. Sep 2016
generally a good time
Nina L. Aug 2016
The location is amazing, being steps to an amazing beach. The location is directly on 101, with understandable , but really loud traffic noise. The house has a reverse floor plan with kitchen/living upstairs. The house was clean and furnishings were fine, but the ability to relax and enjoy the amazing view was limited to the kitchen or hard dining room chairs. The living room overlooks the highway. One of the bedrooms overlooks the highway. The second bedroom could be great as you can see the ocean from the bed, but the stairway almost blocks the entire view and the lower, covered deck is really not useable for anything. The top deck also suffers from the same stairway issues. The stairway dissects the entire top deck, and there is very little useable space. There is a really dirty, old table that is attached to the outside wall, and butts up to a very old BBQ (but it worked fine). There is no seating on the deck and because of this stairway, there are 2 layers of wind shielding that is really hard to see through.. The Hot tub was clean but very exposed as it sits directly under the neighbors windows and is visible from the street. Maybe some tall plants? The fence is useful, but be careful if your dogs are mediums sized or larger. the fence behind the hot tub is very short, maybe 3 feet and it leads directly to 101. Not safe for dogs that might jump a low fence. Again, location awesome.
Shawn F. Aug 2016
First, let me state that the house itself was great. The house was very clean, the bedrooms were great, the kitchen was super with panoramic views of the beach (only 75 some odd feet from the back stoop), the hot tub was ready, available and toasty warm...and overall, the house itself was great!

The area was great, too. Waldport is a nice little town with a full service grocery store, a couple of good places to eat, some great coffee places, and some quaint little shops. We found Yachats had more places to eat that were great (the sammies at the Yachat's Brewing were awesome, the clam strips at Luna were amazing, and the food/people at the Drift Inn will bring us back). Newport was a quick 15-20 minute jaunt and had everything you needed. Cape Perpetua was only 10 minutes away, with Thor's Well and The Spouting Horn a must see whilst in the area.

However, we probably will not stay here again. Why? The road noise. The road noise was constant. Even at night, it was constant. The house is less than 30 feet from US101, and that is the only way to get up and down the coast (say from Newport to Coos Bay), so there's a lot of traffic. At Night, there's a lot of Semi-Truck traffic. Even as we were using the hot tub, the road noise made it difficult to enjoy.
Laura C. Aug 2016
We loved our stay here. The interior of the house was pleasant and comfortable. We absolutely loved the view and the easy access to the beach.
Kristopher S. Jul 2016
Great house. Perfect access to beach. Parking is the only down fall.
John F. Jul 2016
The property is great but the parking is very tight. Don't expect to pull in a large SUV or minivan into the parking.

The property really needs screens for the safety of small children and in order to keep out bugs. There are several low Windows that children could climb out of.

But what this property has is great views and super quick beach access. We would rent again.
Manager response:
The Property Manager has ordered window stoppers and will have them installed soon for child safety in the case of windows.
Katherine S. Jul 2016
This house is perfect for a family. Our kids were able to go out to the beach and have fun while we grilled! The highway traffic noise was a bit disruptive, but we still loved our stay. Our kids called it the "Magic House" when we left. They had fun on the beach while the adults had fun in the hot tub! We left some sand toys for future children! Have fun!
Clarence C. Jun 2016
The house is very nice, it is roomy and comfortable. The hot tub is right outside the bedroom door. We had an amazing time. The only drawback is the parking as the drive way is shared with house next door.
Sherrie W. May 2016
It was very nice. Two dogs and my 91 year old mother. Easy beach trail. View from kitchen and deck is wonderful..
Ramona D. May 2016
This home provides a very quiet beach atmosphere with the forest also right behind you for quite a contrast in available walks. The Highway does run right by the house but not much traffic at night. Highlights of the home are the master bedroom with sliding door, the kitchen with all its windows looking out at the waves, the indoor jacuzzi tub with a big window looking out at the beach, and the outdoor hottub. We didn't really feel that the living room furniture was very comfortable if you wanted to spend much time in there. The beach was deserted most of the time, which for us was wonderful. However, it is just sand and waves - no rock features except for big-stump just down the way

Situated between Newport and Florence on the most beautiful part of the mid Oregon Coast, this house has everything you need for four people. Comfy beds, a washer & dryer\, fully equipped kitchen and fabulous views from the kitchen & deck. We recommend this house and would stay here again without hesitation.

Nice and close to the beach. Front half is very noisy with traffic so we stayed in the kitchen and on the deck mostly. Bring deck chairs with you

Overall, our experience was great! Awesome beach access right outside the back door! The hot tub was nice and the jacuzzi was amazing! House is in good condition and modern. Would definitely stay again!

Great location, friendly local manager responsive to the few questions we had. not the newest property, but clean and well kept.

The house and the location was very nice, the master bed was super comfortable! And the tub in the master over looking the ocean was just the best! There where a few issues with cleanliness of the house when we first arrived but nothing so horrible that was worth calling to complain about! It was a great house to stay in with a small family we loved how close it was to Newport and how close it was to the beach it had the best view of any beach house we have ever stayed at we would rent this house again!

Great location! Unfortunately this house needs some work. They need a new housekeeping staff and maintenance crew. Parking is limited.

This place has an amazing view from the kitchen and eating area. The family room is quite small and so is the second bedroom. The fenced in yard is very convenient for dogs. You are right on the beach which is great, but you are also quite close to the highway 101. It is in the middle of the central coast, so the location is convenient for Newport to the north and Florence to the south.

The home is very nice and for the most part well maintained. There are lots of stairs Stairs don't bother us but could be a problem for some
Wendy K. Mar 2016
Great little house. Comfy accommodations & lovely views. Great kitchen to cook in. House is within feet of Hwy 101, so expect auto noises & engine braking at all hours.

We have stayed in lots of vacation beach homes. This home by far has been the most clean and the beds were awesome!! Loved having the beach a few steps from the house. Very relaxing!!!!
Susan S. Mar 2016
We totally enjoyed the empty beach. The view was wonderful. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and we all slept very well. The hot tub was a great addition to our beach experience. We plan to return to this house again sometime.

We loved our stay at Waconda Oceanfront Escape. The house has a lot of natural light, great views of the ocean, easy access to the beach which is just yards away from the back door, and a fenced yard so our dog could go outside without us fearing that she'd run off. We really love taking our dog to the beach, so appreciate having a house that allows pets. The house was very well stocked in the kitchen, had plenty of towels and sheets. We also appreciated the wifi so we can check our email as needed. I would definitely recommend staying at this house. My only complaint is that I wish I didn't have to pay for the hot tub if I don't plan to use it.

My husband and I had a wonderful long weekend getaway with our 2 Giant Schnuazers. The entire reservation/check-in/check-out process was super easy, and the home was very comfortable. Located right on the beach, access was just about 50 feet out the back gate. We enjoyed several mornings and evenings watching the waves from the hot tub, and spent every night with the bedroom slider open, falling asleep to the soothing sounds of the tide (the king bed was extremely comfy!). The best part was the fenced yard that allowed the dogs free access in and out of the house, as well as allowed us to fully relax knowing that the were safely confined within close proximity. I highly recommend this property for those who love to travel with their furry kids - we will definitely be back again!

We spent three nights in this lovely beach house. It was my "birthday week".
The first day was sunny . We got out early and enjoyed the beach.
The next two days were really stormy. We relaxed those days and read books and cooked in the gorgeous kitchen with the panoramic ocean view! I loved the kitchen!
The beds were comfortable and the jacuzzi tub with the ocean view
was great!
We look forward to going back!
Carolyn M. Feb 2016
We were seeking a place directly on the beach with a hot tub and a fireplace for 3 sisters to spend a week. The house was perfect - well equipped and comfortable. Great beds! The hot tub outside with ocean view is wonderful. The view from the kitchen and dinning area is superb. Beach access is easy and the flat sand makes for good walking - wear shoes that can get wet if you want to cross the beach flows, and check the tide book to avoid high tide. It would be hard to see 7 people staying here, but 4 or 5, 4 sharing beds, would be OK. It is a low key area but we found plenty of things to do, birding in Waldport and exploring the dunes in Florence and the restaurants and marine science centers in Newport. We had a wonderful time.

Our family enjoyed this vacation home very much and would definitely book it again. The beach access is perfect for our young toddlers, and beats going up and down multiple stairs. We also found the downstairs bedroom perfect for our family of 4. My husband and I easily slept with our 2 yr old in the king bed, and our 4 year old loved the small bed tucked away to the side. It was a good sleeping arrangement since they prefer not to sleep separately and away from us during a stay in an unfamiliar home. The jetted tub was the perfect way to relax the kids before bedtime, and with young ones a good sized tub is essential! The kitchen is perfectly situated so that you don't miss the beautiful view while preparing snacks and meals too. Loved this place. Traffic noise wasn't noticeable to us at all.

This was a great spot to get away to! The property was adorable and not too much to handle. We loved the access to the beach, the quaint town with amazing food and drink available, easy access to hikes and sites, and the hot tub was a great bonus. We're absolutely planning to visit again.
Jacque C. Oct 2015
Beautiful views and easy access to miles of sandy beach. Outdoor hot tub and indoor Jacuzzi were both enjoyable amenities. We loved that the back yard was completely fenced for our dogs. The beds were very comfortable for pleasant sleeping. Would highly recommend this house to all.

This place was perfect for my husband and I and our dog. As soon as we walked in, the place was cozy and inviting. It truly is just a short walk from the beach. It was so nice to open up all the doors and windows and listen to the ocean. The kitchen was truly equipped with everything we needed. We grilled every day we were there and relaxed in the hot tub at the end of the day. (We stopped at Fred Meyer's in Newport for all our groceries. The first night we arrived we went to the market in Yachats but that was way more expensive.)

I'm especially glad they welcomed pets. Our dog had a great time at the beach and simply laying out on the upper deck and people watching. The yard is also very helpful!

It was quiet and secluded. I was surprised at how empty the beach was. It made it feel more like a private getaway. It is literally right off the 101 so there is some traffic noise, but it didn't bother us at all.

I would recommend this place and hope to come back for another visit in the future!
Katrina C. Sep 2015
My family and I had a wonderful stay at this home. We enjoyed the well-appointed kitchen and comfy beds, and it was great to walk right out of the backyard and onto the beach. The hot tub was perfect for relaxing. Our dog had a great time, too. We'd love to come stay again!
Michael A. Aug 2015
Wonderful location, you want on the beach? Well here it is. The house says for 7, it's a little cramped. 4 adults it would be perfect. We had a wonderful time. The beds were very comfortable. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.
Lori E. Jul 2015
This is house is nicely furnished and well appointed with everything you need (including the kitchen). Comfy beds and nice linens were a plus. I liked having the fenced backyard. Tiny but functional (needs some attention). You open the back gate, go over the burn and you are on the beach. It was great to be able to watch the kids play on the beach while fixing dinner. The house is right off of highway 101 so you can hear the traffic, but that is the tradeoff for being so close to the beach. Traffic noise really wasn't a problem even for those sleeping in the front of the house. No sign of ants that were mentioned in previous reviews. Seating in the TV room was a bit tight for my family of 5 which was our only issue, though minor, with the house. This house has spoiled me for staying beachfront! I will always want to be steps away from now on! I would stay here again
Olga R. Jul 2015
The house was amazing. The view from the kitchen was beautiful. Kitchen had everything we needed. The only thing we couldn't get the surround sound system to work but no big deal. The beds were super comfortable. We also loved the hot tub. My 5 year old loved the access to the beach it's super close to the house so we could still see him from the window. We really enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend this house.
Jeff Y. Jun 2015
Great location between Waldport and Yachats, but the house is right on Hwy 101. Traffic noise can be an issue for some. Excellent beachfront access, with miles of sandy beach all around. House is clean and well-decorated. Very comfortable beds, we slept great. Hot tub was a great feature and was perfect on windy days.
Matt P. May 2015
The home was perfect! Yes, there were a few ants but you are on the beach and you could tell they had sprayed. The home has everything you could need and it is full of quality, from pots and pans to towels and bedding. It was very clean. You can tell they have thought of everything! We loved the hot tub and the jacuzzi tub that over looked the ocean. The hot shower outside was great too! The beds were so comfortable! It is close to tide pools and a short drive to Oregon Coast Aquarium! We will definitely be back!

Sue A. Apr 2015
This home is beautiful. Everything was spotlessly clean. Loved the bedding and linens. The king bed in the master was extremely comfortable. The views are amazing! Everything in the kitchen from the appliances to the dishware are great quality. We especially enjoyed sitting in the hot tub looking at the beautiful beach, and being able to walk right through the gate to be on that beach!
Manager response:
Thank you for this kind review. We love to hear back from guests that the home was perfect for their stay! We're glad you enjoyed the location, hot tub, and cleanliness... and the comfy bed! We can't wait for you to visit Vacasa again.
Stacey C. Mar 2015
I loved this place so much! I appreciated the super comfy beds, and nice linens, extra linens, pillows. House has a nice, cozy layout. I was there 7 nights and only left twice to town. House and property are perfect for chilling out, relax, read, meals. I watched the sunset each day and it was stunning. Sleeps 7 but that would be a very crowded house w 7. Perfect for 4-5 adults looking to relax in a cozy home w amazing views and location. Also, a huge plus was being able to take the dogs, and the fenced yard! Definitely would recommend this lace to a friend
Lisa M. Mar 2015
It was a wonderful getaway - relaxing in the hot tub while watching the sunsets was perfect. Really appreciated the awesome kitchen - had everything we needed and was of top quality. Only drawback at all was not really understanding the thermostat programming and so we pretty much kept it off so as not to hear the fans constantly starting/stopping. It was a warmish sunny week so the heat was not really necessary. Also recommend putting some reading lamps in the livingroom. But overall we really enjoyed the house and our visit! Thank you!
David C. Feb 2015
We had a very quite peaceful stay at the beach with our dogs, they loved running on the beach. This house had one of the most beautiful view and so close to the beach. Would love to go again
Joan S. Jan 2015
We really enjoyed our stay at this property and the Vacasa staff were great. When we arrived, there was no grill on the property (which it was advertised as having one). The next morning someone brought a brand new grill!
The beach is located steps from the home and our kids took advantage of going back and forth from the house to the beach throughout the day. I could watch them from the kitchen window. The only downside was it is located right on the 101 and you could hear the traffic at times. Overall, I would recommend this rental to friends and family.
Melinda M. Jan 2015
This home is absolutely amazing.
You will feel so revitalized after staying in this beautiful home.
We are already planning for next year.
There should be a week package price though.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. We are delighted to see that you enjoyed the home. Most of our homes (including this one) are eligible for a 15% discount off of the rent if they are booked for 7 nights or more (which usually turns out to be the equivalent of a free night). Thank you for choosing Vacasa!

Path down to the beach right from this property. Lots of glass makes for fantastic views of the ocean. The morning we left there were seals playing right off shore. Even though property sits on highway, bedrooms are quiet.
Manager response:
Thank you for the review. We're glad you enjoyed the spectacular views! Come back for a visit anytime!
