A friend and I stayed with our two dogs and you can’t get any closer to the beach! Cute place with fabulous views. Be prepared to bring your own dog supplies though...dishes, towels to wipe off paws, poop bags, etc.

The house was exactly as advertised. We found it to be well equipped and very clean. Being able to walk out the door onto the beach was amazing. This beach is really nice, soft sand and easy to walk. My only complaint is that the driveway needed to be cleared of sand, it’s a narrow driveway and the sand makes it tricky.

Up on arrival the blinds were broken, the bench for the dining table was broken, a lock for a window was broken, the main windows to look at the ocean were cloudy not clear, and it looked like black mold in the corners of those windows. I would NOT recommend this property.

Very nice a little sandy, it was interesting but hard to keep the sand out of the house. I also would have preferred that we were a little closer to the ocean.

Quiet and quaint little spot perfect for a girls weekend or romantic weekend away. House was clean and beach decored. We had an amazing time.

We rent this house at least twice a year. The updates in the kitchen and the new living room seating is wonderful.

We arrived Thursday afternoon. I went to use the restroom the toilet overflowed I plunged it and finally got it to stop running all over the floor. I then had to use all of the towels to clean up the floor. Ok now it time to do a load of towels thank goodness there was a washer on site. We went in for our morning showers the tub drain was so slow you were standing in five inches of water at the end of your shower. After we plunged the Tub all was good with that. The house had WiFi but no pass word I called the place we had rented it from. The owner doesn’t offer the pass word. The heater on the north wall sounds like a lawnmower when it starts up. You have to ask yourself one and a half rolls of toilet paper for 3 people for five days. Needless to say we had to go to the store. I feel after a weekend with this house I should be on the payroll

Very nice location. Clean, great views and great beach access. The same is a bit of a problem but not terrible. I do wish there was Wi-Fi though.

We had nice time, quite place easy beach access. Very clean house. Would come back again.

Beautiful view and very clean home. Don't trust all they say the home binoculars...they mislead renters about internet & WIFI, they promised they now had WIFI but it comes and goes and goes...someone prior to us wrote on note on refrigerator that had the wifi password 'when it's useable' which we wondered about, now we know, which is inexcusable in this day and age...and don't say you should have called us, because the phone requires a code to make calls and having no cell service, the only thing i could have called it 911.
Now i understand why a couple people reviewing mentioned the sand outside backdoor. Lazy owners could push it back so renters don't track tons of sand in, we didn't even know there were two steps till WE pushed it back 10 feet, which then we were able to use BBQ, which is older than the sand. And is made is mush nicer looking, which the next renters will benefit from.
Owners need to step up. They should be offering partial refunds, too much to pay for not giving all that's promised.

The house is clean, open and well maintained. Great ocean view, if a little far from the actual shore. Aside from “Ocean front”, my lone requirement was functioning internet service. The property manager assured me the WiFi was working. Not true. There is a used modem and router. They are not connected to the internet. There is password protected access to router, but no wires going to the modem from the actual internet. Someone is scamming guests.

A little expensive but it was a holiday so expected. You can not beat the location and being right on the beach was amazing. It's a quiet community and beach to relax at. The house it beautiful with an open floor plan and great views. The windows were a little dirty that made it hard to get perfect views but still okay.
Blair B. September 12, 2017
Great location. Only problems were the large amount of soft sand on driveway and road and the WiFi was disconnected. WE called about it on Friday (arrival). Someone came Sat aft and said it was disconnected and he could not do anything about it.

When we got there, trash & feminine products were all over the driveway, the crows was happening a buffet (gross!). I called OregonVacationHomes they sent someone out to clean up. We made our way inside, the shades were up and the heater was on to 65'c. I turned off all the heaters, and walked through the home. The screen to one of the window fell out, we told the person that came by to clean the driveway - he said "he knows" but didnt do anything else. The screen remained down, luckily it was NOT windy so the sand didnt invade the living room.

One of the bedroom that faced the coast had a door to the outside, and I am thinking WOW! I can leave the door open to hear the waves at night - NOPE! The door with the screen to keeps the bugs and sand out..broken, unhinged. We ended up keeping out door closed the entire stayed. There were no screen on the window so we didnt want to open that, afraid the sand will get inside. The bed was big enough for my husband and 2-yrs old, I opted for the extra cottage.

The breathtaking view took away the negatives aspect. We had a peaceful Thursday, but then had neighbors Friday. The rule stated quiet time after 10pm, I wish someone told the neighbors. They were building bond fire. and had loud music until midnight.

We were out all day Saturday, came back and the living room was like a sauna again. Either there is a ghost or someone came in and crank up our heater, mind you, it is NOT one of those heater that you can have a timer on, it was a turn knob. Again, I turned off all the heaters. Night came, and the neighbor once again, out bonding & the music blaring until midnight, we fell asleep because we were beat. We ended up leaving a night early because we could not take another night of music blaring.

Would I rent this place again? I am still debating. I love the view, easy access the water. I would recommend you bring extra towels & bathroom tissues if >3 ppl. If they fix screens, and promised

We really enjoyed location. It was very relaxing weekend.

We LOVED the location on the beach. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. It was a special bonus to have the dogs.

We are 4 seniors who have stayed in this same house several years ago. The location is perfect and the access to the ocean is an easy walk. The sand changes each time we stay in the Bayshore area. We could watch the fishing boats in the morning. The house is cozy and has everything we need to be comfortable. It's clean and has interesting decor. Our only complaints were that the recliners footrest did not work properly and the Windows and blinds were dirty.
Alicia B. September 4, 2017
Lovely time with family. Dog enjoyed the sand too!
John H. October 3, 2017
We loved staying at our rental right on the ocean. We thought that the price was reasonable and the home was so spacious, with beautiful views. The walks to the beach were great and the neighbors were really friendly and let me use their fat tire bike to take a long ride along the beach all the way to Seal Rock. I couldn't get Wifi at the home, but we went to the library in Waldport, just about 5 minutes by car, to use their computers and Wifi. The only negative was I left my bicycle wheel in the garage like an idiot and didn't realize it until I got to Boise, Idaho. I'm hoping that they will be able to send it to me.

Fantastic location and wonderful memories for our family!

The house was just fine, heavy winds had brought sand into the windows but it also brought sunshine, so no complaints. House was comfortable, but needs some attention in the kitchen.... also no lawn chairs which was a bummer. The access to the beach was pretty awesome and wildlife was all over the point. Very peaceful and couldn't ask for a better sunset!!
Bill R. October 10, 2017
We loved our stay at A Shore Thing... the location is great, right on the beach, with direct access to walk out the back door and go for a walk. The home was clean, with a well stocked kitchen for coooking, and charcoal BBQ to grill. The only snag we had was there being no wifi in the home, as it had stated in the property description. We will definitely be back again!
Anonymous October 18, 2017
Great, clean and cozy house nestled right in the beach! The house next to the rental was being worked on all day and night so it was pretty noisy but we kept the TV turned up and it worked out ok. Location and house were awesome though!!! So close to town to pop in to get groceries or go out to eat.

We take annual trips to the Oregon coast. This was our 2nd time renting this house and stayed 4 days. Unfortunately this time the house was not as clean as we would have expected. There was sand EVERYWHERE (we understand a modicum of sand is expected due to the location) but this was excessive to the point that we wondered if anyone had come in to sweep after the previous renters. The base boards were brown from dirt and grime in the bathroom and ALL the windowsills had an inch worth of sand built up so badly that we could not open the windows. We contacted the PM company regarding WiFi and was told we would receive a call back but never did. While we enjoyed our stay we were very disappointed with the condition of the property. We will be looking elsewhere next year.

We love this rental house. It is perfect for us and oureb dog Zeva. If you love sand and sea this is the perfect rental for you. The view is outstanding. This is our 6th time renting and will continue to have this as our beach destination.
JANET C. October 19, 2017
We were really happy to see that the kitchen appliances had been updated as well as the new table and television. WI FI would be nice but not that important. Looking forward to going back in January.

What a fun place to stay. Can't get much closer to the beach. A very comfortable, cozy house with a great view and wonderful access to the beach. When can we come back?
Anonymous January 16, 2017
Love the location and over all the house itself. This is our 3rd visit and love that we can bring our dog. The owners do need to do a few updates for us to continue to come back. They most certainly need to get a new stove. You can only safely cook on one burner as the burner rings do not fit the old stove and the pans slide off off the other three burners, They also need to upgrade the microwave, We do eat out while we are there but do love to cook most of our meals onsite. They have plenty of cooking items which is much appreciated. If the cooking appliances are updated I would continue to recommend this property to friends and family.

Started rough with keypad. No rugs was difficult because of hard floors. Not a real dog friendly rental,I.e. no rugs. No fenced area for potty breaks. The view made everything worth while. Quiet secluded. Make sure you pack all food or don't mind driving to town. Need to have maintenance man go thru house. Burned out porch light to beach. Need more than one key because keypad is a bugger to use. Thanks for listening.

The stove burner caught on fire the 1 smoke detector never went off(don't know if it works). Sand covered our cars and caused performance issues. There was dog hair on the sheets. I emailed them after our stay to let them know all these issues and they said they know sand is a problem there but never warned us. The only resolution to our complaints was an "I'm sorry". We were very disappointed with the experience.

High water and STORMS!! What a wonderful time to be at the Oregon coast!! The view was amazing!

Everything was perfect. Best get away! Everyone was as described.
Anonymous April 16, 2017
The house is very cute and the view is unbelievable! Agree with other raters that the stove and microwave need updating and the DVD player was broke, very frustrating for movie night! The sand!- lots of sand which was completely bearable until a storm hit. Our Suburban was covered with 3 inches of sand- completely covered! Our vents are still blowing out sand! I really think that they should provide garage space to renters in order to avoid this, as our car is now having sand issues, wheels, vents, windows, buttons! I loved bringing our dog, but would never stay again and recommend only staying in good weather conditions.

sand on the back door
Anonymous June 9, 2017
This was a delightful home. Very clean and comfortable right on the beach. The only concern we had was due to the amount of sand in the area if you didn't have 4 wheel drive there was no way you couldn't get up the drive way. Other than that us was a great beach rental.
Melissa M. May 6, 2017
The house was incredibly clean and inviting. The location was beyond belief! We were so happy that our two dogs were able to be with us and run around on the beach right outside our doorstep. We would happily come back!
Anonymous May 6, 2017
This home was incredible! It was well-stocked with kitchenware, blankets, cots, books, and puzzles. It had everything we needed to have an amazing vacation. The view is great, and it felt like we had the beach to ourselves each day. Our dogs didn't want to leave, and spent a lot of time looking out the windows at the ocean. We had never stayed in Waldport before, but really liked that it was between Yachats and Depoe Bay. The drive down to Cape Perpetua and then Florence was really easy. We ended up getting into Waldport about an hour and a half early, and when we called Oregon Beach Vacations to see if we could check-in earlier, Linda was very friendly, helpful, and got back to us right away. I would definitely book a vacation with Oregon Beach Vacations again.
