Wonderful Beach House with Fabulous Views
average rating of 4.9 based on 20 reviews

Overall - BEST HOME away from home - ever!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have ask for a better experience. The owners, Gary and Kathy, are the kindest, most helpful and easiest people to work with. The home is spacious with Fabulous Views of the ocean from every room in the house. The beds were very comfortable. There are so many nearby activities and great restaurants. You won't have time to see it all - mostly because the home is so cozy and well equipped - it was nice just staying put also. The walk to the beach is easy and the beach area is fabulous. In addition to having a ping-pong table, tons of movies and books, great TV's, wood burning fire place and wood stove (down stairs); there are 3 crab pots!!! The owners thought of everything! Thanks Gary and Kathy - we are spreading the word of how amazing you and your home was for a great getaway and will definitely be back.

Near perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We took 6 teens with us to this house and as soon as they walked into the house they were so excited.They all stayed downstairs, close to the wifi, and would come upstairs to eat and play pingpong. My husband and I were able to enjoy some relaxing time upstairs. Loved being able to lay in bed in the morning and watch the waves crash on the rocks. Spent a lot of time on the deck too. It felt just like home. A week later we all keep talking about how we wish we were still there.

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent five nights in this lovely spacious home. We especially enjoyed the large deck for lounging and all meals but one due to chilly weather. The views from large windows inside and on the deck are outstanding. We loved the short walk to the beach and enjoyed the tide pools, kite flying, building sand castles, hiking, and especially loved watching the waves break on the large rocks. We dined in Newport on the water at Local Ocean Foods and it was excellent. This was our first trip to Seal Rock and we would definitely book this house again.

Everything We Needed!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful house had everything we needed: beautiful views, a marvelous location near Newport with great restaurants and things to do, the ability to walk the beach any time we wanted and the comforts of home. The owners had thought of everything one could possibly need from books to extra kitchen and bathroom supplies, to maps and menus, comfortable beds, and anything you could need to prepare and serve dinner - I think more than I have at home. Although it was only my husband and myself using the house for a week, it would have been easily comfortable for 6 or 8 people. The house was clean and neat when we arrived and the owners, who we met in person, were lovely and helpful.We loved staying there and would definitely go back if return to Oregon.

What a view

  • 5 of 5

This incredible property is totally a wish come true. From the moment you reach Seal Rock, you know you will be experiencing a life of total relaxation and peacefulness . Exactly what anyone would want out of their vacation. The kitchen is stocked with all the utensils that you could ever imagine . You totally involve yourself in the atmosphere of the outdoors as you look out of the kitchen window and see the beautiful breathtaking scenery of the ocean and the tranquility of the waves. The owners are the best anyone could imagine. The Seal Rock coffee shop down the way from the property has great cofee drinks. My favorite the mocha was delicious. Just a few miles down the road, you can visit and have lunch in Florence. The shops have curious artifacts like glass beads and Various other goodies. There are many lovely trails in the park a few miles rhe road. Worth the hiking just to see the breathtaking views from the top. In conclusion, a very comfortable house with gorgeous views of the ocean.

A Return to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We (two couples, one 11-year-old, and a dog) recently had a second great visit to this wonderful beach home in Seal Rock, located in a quiet area between Newport and Waldport. The spacious deck afforded views of whales passing by and a pair of eagles roosting on a nearby rock, not to mention incredible sunsets. Once you learn the way, the beach, which is magnificent at low tide, is readily accessible; Seal Rock State Park is close by. The house itself is clean and very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped, and the owners have provided a variety of books and games for entertainment for all ages (that is, if any is needed beyond the beaches!) The owners are also very responsive to guests’ needs. Last year we reported a dysfunctional burner on the stove, and this year we enjoyed a brand new oven and stovetop. (We may have even been the first to use the oven!) Olson’s Beach House is a destination we love to return to when traveling to the Oregon coast!
