Depoe Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Whale Vista Cottage lets you enjoy a close-up, captivating view of the ever-changing oceanfront action. The spectacular ocean views are seen from every room. From the spacious decks or a plush living room chair you can relax and watch a sleek Coast Guard cutter ride the waves, grab the binoculars and spy on the pelicans and sea gulls, watch the occasional sea otter feeding just beyond the rocky shore, or gasp in awe as a huge whale flips its tail and rolls against the rocks below. Whale Vista Cottage provides some of the best whale watching available in Depoe Bay—the 'Whale Watching Capital of the World.'

About Stephanie Wiarda

Patti and Michael are long time practitioners in the arts -- a former Gallery owner and a Theatrical Promoter. We now run a boutique tax firm catering to creative professionals.

Stephanie Wiarda purchased this house in 2012

Why Stephanie Wiarda chose Depoe Bay

40 years ago Patti first saw Whale Vista Cottage and fell in love with it. Since then, most trips down the Oregon Coast have included a stay in Depoe Bay (and a stroll on the quiet road that passes by Whale Vista!) The tiny harbor, the unique collection of boats that live there, the resident and passing whales, the endless excitement of the ocean patterns there, the many activities and beaches nearby and the serenity of the location are what charmed us to this magical place.

What makes this house unique

Whale Vista Cottage is steps away from the Oregon State Whale Watching State Park in Depoe Bay. The uniqueness of the house, its furnishings and serenity set it apart from other rentals in the area.

It is a special place to relax and lose yourself in the majesty of the Pacific Ocean!

We stayed here with family to attend our son's wedding at Beverly Beach State Park. The house is so warm and charming..all the comforts of home and more!! The vista from every room was great and we were blessed to have the whales put on a show for us. The time was great, as was the wedding!! Highly recommend!! Thanks to the owners,
Sincerely, The Woods

This house is just wonderful. The location can't be beat, the views of whales spouting from every room in the house, the decor and amenities - EVERYTHING - just can't be beat. My husband and I stayed for three nights and I felt sad at having to leave but so grateful that the owners share this magical place with all of us travelers. We had a variety of weather, which is very common in Oregon and this house is a wonderful place to be during rain, wind or sun. Thank you and we will be back!

1st annual Friends trip

  • 5 of 5
Just got home from spending 5 nights at your special place in Depot Bay. Location, your unique way of decorating, the special touches you have in your cottage, the entire house was well furnished. Beds were extremely comfy, you NEVER run out of hot water......I could go on on on. This was a first trip we made with our AMAZING friends and their son and his girlfriend. There was never one moment that wasn't special. I feel our friendship grew to a completely different level over these last 5 days and your cottage was a HUGE part of it. We have all talked about returning (hopefully sooner than later) You are very special people to open up your property to people like us and let them experience the wonderful qualities it has with the most amazing views I think you can get on the coast. Had great fun walking to The Sea Hag then walking on to Wing Wa's for a little Karaoke, which turned out to be an epic night. Laughed so had my stomach hurt. Thank you, thank you, thank you for such a memorable place to stay and we will FOR SURE be returning to make more incredible memories with our new found traveling friends. This trip with our friends & your cottage was priceless!
Thank you again. :)

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5
Clean, comfortable home with amazing views and the sound of the waves always in the background. Lovely. We spent 4 nights here on our girlfriend reunion tour. After 30 years we got together to see our old friend's beautiful state of Oregon. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Appreciated the gas fireplace while we lounged with our coffee one cold rainy morning but we were lucky to have mostly fine weather. We took advantage of outside ocean side seating and shared the bottle of wine our hosts left for us (thank you!) while watched the sun set into the Pacific. This was a cozy place to come home to after a day of exploring. Sights are spectacular--everywhere really, but the Devil's Punchbowl and Cape Foulweather are breathtaking. We were happy that this home was a short walk to the business district and a very good restaurant, Gracie's Sea Hag. Nearby shops, Things Rich and Strange & Pacific Brass and Copper Works were interesting and fun with friendly merchants. We all went home with keepsakes we love from Mossy Creek Pottery near Gleneden Beach. I'd say this was a trip of a lifetime but I would love to return to Whale Vista many times again!

Beautifully Eclectic Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My brother, sister & I took our almost 84 year old mother to this wonderful cottage as her Christmas gift. We were greeted with a welcome basket & lovely note from the owners. The cottage is FULL of beautiful, funky, delightful "treasures". It was such fun to find something different every time we turned around. The main floor bedroom/bathroom worked perfectly for Mom. We loved the views from the big windows downstairs as well as upstairs. We had a bit of a problem with the TV but that was simply operator error & our call for help was promptly returned. Our security deposit was returned less than a week from our departure WITH a very nice note from the owners. I highly recommend Whale Vista & I hope to return. The cottage was very clean with nice linens & towels. The owners have done a wonderful job of making guests feel welcome in their home. It's obvious that they love their beautiful cottage!!!

Just about perfect

  • 5 of 5
Not only were we gifted with unseasonably spring-like weather on the coast just after the Christmas holiday but we had a most beautiful vantage point from which to view and enjoy it. Everything about Whale Vista was meticulously kept and prepared, from the kitchen to the gorgeous master bedroom. Every bedroom and the living room offered a view to treasure, high above but directly at the ocean. Binoculars in every room and a telescope in the upstairs hall made the fun search for whales and other marine sights so easy. It's a marvelous retreat that felt like home to the youngest --age seven-- and the oldest --60+, let's say-- and those in between. This is a place good for the spirit, to return to again and again.
