Vicki & I have lived here on the Central Oregon coast all of our lives. Vicki has three children, 6 Grand Children & 5 Great Grandchildren. I recently retired with 20 years in Real Estate to enjoy our Vacation Rental business.
Vicki purchased this townhome in 1998
We fell in love with the unique ocean view from this City center location. The ever changing wave action on the rocky formation jutting out into the Ocean creates some spectacular, ever changing, year round entertainment. We have a US Coast Guard Station, right here in our little town, located right on the Ocean.
We enjoy one of the most unique ocean views anywhere on the coast.
Thanks for again sharing your wonderful home with us. We couldn't have had a better week. Many mornings there were Whales right out in the cove in front of "Tidal Raves". We did some shopping, spent time with our kids & really relaxed. I hope to come back before the Summer is over.
This is the 4th consecutive year that we stayed at Walt and Vicki's spectacular Ocean view home. First class is the best way to describe the experience.......from the owners to the accommodations. Almost everything you could possibly need is stocked in the house---- towels; linens; kitchen ware; games; CD's; DVD's; computer with printer; WIFI; binoculars and even a telescope to see the sea life up close. The kitchen is so well stocked your never going to want to leave--- all you need to do is bring your own food. The ocean is right in front of you and once again we saw whales passing by (11 this trip) plus frisky Sea Lions. The Coast Guard entertained us as they performed practice maneuvers in plain view. If you are a regular here, check with Walt for an update on what is new since your last visit. He is an awesome guy and can point you in the right direction.
This is a great little getaway. My friends and I did a girls getaway here and from the moment we walked in, we felt as if we were in our home away from home. The view was great, rooms were wonderful and hosts were nice. We plan on using this again for another adventure to the coast!
We Honeymooned at Depoe Bay 52 years ago and on our 50th Anniversary decided to come back. Vicki and Walt's get-away was the perfect place to start a tradition so we are now on our 3rd year ( Anniversary # 52 ) of staying a week at their " By the Bay " home.
This visit the weather was mild with sun 6 out of 7 days which added to the amazing ocean view out the front windows. Vicki and Walt are gracious hosts and their well equipped place is so home like that we are always saddened when it is time to leave.
We are looking forward to our return for #53.
Thanks again Vicki and Walt.
My husband and I needed some quiet alone time after the busy holiday season and this was just the place for it. We had everything we needed right there. It was so relaxing to sit and watch the ocean waves crash over the rocks. My husband loved the telescope that was set up in the living room. He was always checking out the boats going in and out of the harbor or what was going on out on the water. We watched movies, did some sightseeing, wine tasting, shopping and had a relaxing three day mini vacation. There are several really good restaurants close by, including next door and across the street so we didn't have to drive at night if we didn't want to. Of course there is a fully equipped kitchen and we did cook breakfast every morning. Lots of parking including a covered area but, a little cramped trying to go through to the back with a larger truck. Since my husband was driving and not me that wasn't a problem, lol. We felt comfortable and very much at home.
Just a note if you are specifically wanting a three bedroom. Yes there are three bedrooms but, upstairs you have to go through one bedroom to get to the other. I know sometimes that could be an issue for some people.
It was really easy to book and Vicki & Walt are so nice and accommodating. We plan on booking again as soon as we can. We've told our family and friends about our rare find and how we thought we got such a great deal, some of which will be checking into for themselves. The rates are very reasonable and there are not a lot of fees that you have to pay in addition to the nightly rate like most rentals. We will definitely be calling them again.
Thank you for making your rental available and affordable.
We stayed "At the Bay" for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and for our first time ever in Oregon. It was very homey and private. We appreciated having all the comforts of home while away from home. The view was spectacular out the front windows that went across the whole front of home as well as the view from the deck where you could sit out and smell the fresh ocean air! Our first morning there we saw a whale out the windows and several times after that! It was amazing. We appreciated the binoculars and the telescope provided to view them with. We saw the coast guard boats and their helicopter, many whale watching boats, fishing boats etc. Sometimes at night you could hear the bell tolling from the buoys off shore. We enjoyed hearing that! The coast of Oregon is spectacular and there were many amazing views in and around Depoe Bay. We didn't have to go far to see a lot. Our first night there we ate at the Sea Hag a few blocks down the street. We had the sea food buffet. Good food and nice local atmosphere. At Ainslees they make homemade salt water taffy right there where you can watch. Depoe Bay also has a nice whale watching center and the worlds smallest navigable harbor. They also offer charter boats for fishing and whale watching. We enjoyed Newport too. It was only about 11 miles south of Depoe Bay and is a beautiful drive. The aquarium was nice there and the bayfront area was great. If your there at the right time you can see people working on the dock processing rock fish and crabs. We also ate at the famous Mo's restaurant on the Bayfront. Nice local place with great clam chowder. We saw sea lions down the street from there. Yaquina Bay state park was beautiful on the beach and Yaquina Head Lighthouse was nice to see with great views. We would also recommend the Otter Crest Loop just a few miles south right out of Depoe Bay. We also loved coming back to the house and the serene town of Depoe Bay after a long day out seeing the sights. We saw seal lions, seals and lots of sea birds. We found star fish and beautiful shells on the beaches. We enjoyed sunny days in Oregon but also enjoyed the over cast days with the mist and fog. So beautiful! We would recommend "At the Bay." Walt was very kind too and Vicki was pleasant to deal with over the phone. Things we appreciated also was the great shower pressure, the comfortable king size bed, the personal computer use, washer and dryer and a private place to park in the back. We hope to visit again.
Last year was our 50th anniversary and stayed in the lower unit. That was the first time back to Depoe Bay since our Honeymoon in 1962. For our 51st we decided to try this unit and we were not disappointed.
The view was super and the accommodations fit our needs. Over the week saw 12 whales out the front windows and two even had barnacles attached, Friends joined us for 4 of the nights which allowed us to show them the local attractions. Day trips were south to Florence/Dune City ( to visit other friends); north to Tillamook: east to the McMinnville Air/Space Museum: as well as the usual local tourist places.
We wish to once again thank Vicki and Walt for sharing their well equipped ocean view "BY THE BAY" rental. See you next year for our 52nd anniversary stay (or maybe sooner)!
Watch the spectacular ocean view winter storms from your cozy, warm, home away from home.
