Overview

Newport House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

'Spirit of the Sea' is a spacious, peaceful beachfront home with elegant furniture and a wide deck affording magnificent ocean views, set high on over an acre, next to undeveloped, forested coastal land. The home is ringed by pines and the deep green growth of the Northwest. Easy private access down some steps to miles of virtually deserted beach both north and south. The beach is five hundred feet wide at low tide. You’ll be both exhilarated and soothed by the unceasing roar of the Pacific breakers rolling in, by the flight of gulls, pelicans, and eagles, by the wind in the trees, and by the nearby creek flowing out of the forest over rocks down to the sea. Fly one of our kites, build a sandcastle, search for agates, make a beach bonfire or use our indoor fireplace and wood stove. Luxuriate in the oceanfront hot tub, read while swinging gently in the hammock, grill your salmon and dine on the deck or at our large dining table, relax and watch the night sky over the Pacific.

About jeff utter and sharon whittle

Sharon is a psychotherapist, Jeff is a pastor and college professor of religion. We have four wonderful children, two sons and two daughters. Originally from the Northeast, we have lived for many years in California, and we love the American west.

jeff utter and sharon whittle purchased this house in 2002

Why jeff utter and sharon whittle chose Newport

We both feel very connected to the natural world. Sharon especially loves the sea, and Jeff loves the evergreen forest. We both need plenty of peaceful, quiet time, which this location richly affords. We love to hike the beach and the forests. The house is set well back from the main road and has few close neighbors. It is spacious and open, and allows us both to entertain guests while giving everyone their private space.

Perfect For Groups

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our annual women's retreat. We had 14 women this year and this house was perfect in size and accommodations. The owners are easy to deal with and made it very easy to feel comfortable. They even left a nice gift as a welcome present. I hope to be able to rent this house again

Great view, house needed some attention

  • 2 of 5

Very secluded and a great view. The house smelled musty and one of the bed frames was broken, as was the showerhead. The hot tub was very relaxing, but the steps were rather slippery when wet. Definitely won't be back.

Owner's Response: Geni stayed at our house at the end of the peak season, when many back to back rentals sometimes makes it hard to do repairs promptly. The showerhead was working, but needed to be replaced, which has since been done. The bed frame was not broken, but was missing a caster and at the time we were searching for the right size. Since her visit, we have replaced the carpet on the main floor with a lovely high quality carpet. We have also installed a large new hot tub. Prior to this, we have never had a complaint about the wooden hot tub steps being slippery, nor have we ever experienced this ourselves, but our maintenance person says that he can find some abrasive surfacing. We are not sure what the "musty" smell could be beyond the smell of the damp ocean front environment, but perhaps the new carpet will make a difference. Jeff and I love Spirit of the Sea and are conscientious about giving our renters a good experience.

Wonderful Ocean Front Rental

  • 5 of 5

Stunning views from most rooms in the house, large roomy decks, ocean front hot tub, and an amazing beach that is virtually private. The house is well stocked for comfort, we had a group of 15 and there was plenty of space for all. I would definitely recommend this home and will certainly return for another stay!

Great beach home. Excellent view, great deck and super close beach access! It was amazing how loud the ocean was and you could hear it with the windows closed!

The hot tub was also wonderful to relax in and enjoy the sight and sound of the ocean.

Definitely looking forward to going back!

Great Ocean Front Property

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to the Oregon Coast for the last 16 years. We started in Brookings, moved to Gold Beach, and went many years to Bandon. This year we decided to try Newport, mostly because we found this great rental. We had such a good time. The house was amazing, the views were terrific. We will definately come back here. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

Our stay at Spirit of the Sea was great. Large comfortable house with beautiful Views. The kitchen had everything we needed and the beds were really comfy. We had 4 adults and 4 kids and did not even need the lower level. Great comfortable house.
