This private apt. is located 3.5 miles north of Newport, across from the beach. 1 bedroom w/king bed, and a queen Murphy (pulls out of the wall)bed in the living room. Full bath, full kitchen, washer/dryer. It has it's own entrance& parking . Private deck with ocean view, BBQ and crab cooker. Please remember when checking out other properties: we charge NO EXTRA FEES FOR CLEANING, OR PETS, these extra charges can actually double your nightly rate.
Leather furniture, antiques and great décor will make you feel like you want to stay forever! The apt. has extra high ceilings and LOTS of windows. From every window you have a view of the ocean and the forests. Very quiet with private entrance and parking.Relax in the Adirondack chairs on your private deck with ocean view. Perfect in the morning with a cup of coffee, afternoon with a cold beer, and evening with that perfect glass of wine and a good book. Deck also has a BBQ and crab cooker. The kitchen is complete with stove, oven, fridge, micro, coffee maker and even a washer and dryer. Full bathroom with tub/shower combo. We provide movies and board games. Please bring brickettes for the BBQ and a sheet to cover the furniture if your pets are going to be on the couch.
Also please note that we have a dog. He is young, big and very friendly. We will keep him away from you and your pets if you wish. We also have chickens and although they are seperate from the apt. it is best to supervise your dogs while on the property. I would like to mention that the parking space is on site (right next to the apt.) and is small. If you have more than one vehicle, or a very large vehicle, you are welcome to park just at the top of the hill where we have a very large driveway. Please also feel free to pull up there to turn around so you don't have to back down the steep driveway.
You will be greeted with a welcome basket, and we do provide, coffee, tea and bottled water, as well as shampoo, conditioner, soap and a hair dryer and all linens and towels.
You have your own seperate entrance and parking. The entire apt. is yours to use and is completely private. A day or two before your arrival I will send you the code to unlock the key lock box. You can arrive at any time after 3:00 or before if the apt. is available. Just give me a heads up as to your ETA.
Interaction with guests
Most likely we will be around if you need help of any kind, but we respect your privacy and you won't see us if you don't want to! Please just text or call with any problems or questions.
Other things to note
We have lots of trails and logging roads for hiking. Winter storms are impressive and the summers are beautiful. Pick mushrooms or berries, beach comb or whale watch, clam, crab, fish or just relax.......its up to you. Newport is full of awesome restaurants and things to do, Nye Beach, the bay front, Hatfield Marine and the Oregon Aquarium, just to name a few. If bringing your dog please bring a throw to put over the couch. Their little claws leave scratch marks in the leather. Also brickettes if you plan to grill.
Airbnb rentals are not for everyone, they are NOT a hotel, but an alternative to hotel staying.
We are ocean "view", but not directly on the beach. You can walk to the beach if you like, but I don't recommend it as you cross the coastal highway.
We have a dog.......a big, friendly dog. He lives here. You are welcome to bring your dog but please remember we don't charge any extra fees for pets and your dog staying is a courtesy, not something you have paid for. Please be mindful that there are "free range" chickens around as well.
Certain times of year our water (well water) can be slightly dark in color. It is perfectly safe, however we do provide bottled water for drinking and ice.
The hugh living room windows are a focal point to enjoy the view. Therefore we have chosen not to put blinds or curtains on them. Being a secluded property this isn't normally an issue, (we have none in our home either). The kitchen and the bedroom DO, however, have window coverings.
The bedroom is small, just big enough for the King size bed, a dresser and chair.
We are 3.5 miles from downtown Newport. If you really want to be in the "thick" of things you may not like the 5-8 mins. drive.
If any of these things are an issue for you, please ask questions before booking, or reconsider your choices. Thank you!
Although we want you to have the time of your lives, this is NOT a party house. Please respect that we live very close by and just as you, wish not to be disturbed by super loud music and chaos. ONLY THOSE BOOKED ARE ALLOWED TO STAY OVERNIGHT, AND NEVER MORE THAN FOUR UNLESS PREVIOUSLY APPROVED. We will need to keep your security deposit if these rules are not followed.
Your pets are most likely welcome, BUT PLEASE CHECK WITH US FIRST, and most importantly... DON'T LET THEM ON THE COUCH..... their nails puncture the leather......I don't care even if they are on the beds! Just please no couch! And do pick up their poop, bags are provided. Smoking is allowed outside ONLY. We provide a "butt" refuse, please do use it.
Hey I'm Christine, married to Steve and we are recently retired. I was a Day Spa owner/operator, and Steve had his own business as well (asphalt contractor). Our main thing is TRAVEL, we love to travel and have been guests at many airbnb vacation rentals. We have had great experiences with great hosts and so decided to give it a try ourselves (when we aren't out traveling). We also love to fish, hike, crab, clam and all things outdoors that are so readily available to us here on the coast. Cooking and reading are right up there too. Oh.....and then there is wine. We love wine! Both of us our big animal lovers, especially big dogs. We have had 3 rescue Rottweilers and Bella, our bull mastiff, whom we adored. Unfortunately we lost the last Rotty a couple months ago and we are trying our hardest to take a few years off from having a dog (dogs) in the family, since we like to travel for long periods, occasionally for months at a time. We have a lovely space to share with you, and I feel certain you will enjoy the location. We can be helpful and friendly, or invisible........which ever you prefer. Hope you will come and give us a try next time you need to chill at the beach!
