Perfect large family beach house!!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful home is absolutely perfect for a multi-generation vacation. Everyone has room to spread out with a large common area when all want to be together. Very clean home! The kitchen is well equipped and lots of shelf space for food supplies for a large group. Beach access is perfect and the large decks are amazing. Might want to bring a flashlight for nighttime access. Our large family was so happy with this home and the owner was wonderful to work with.

Fantastic house for multigenerational vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting this house and was based on the internet description. We loved it and will be back! The kids loved sleeping in the downstairs area and the sand toys were a hit. The grandparents were happy on the main floor and the parents on the third floor. The view from various places in the house is beautiful. The kitchen is well supplied and the hot tub was enjoyed. No shower in the master bath was the only surprise. The rain even held off until the last day. Great long weekend!

We had such an amazing time! Shearwater was the perfect house for our family and close friends.

  • 5 of 5

Shearwater house...was everything we hoped for for a first time family vacation on the coast of Oregon! The house was perfect for us. It was clean upon arrival and had more than everything we needed. It has a very comfortable homey feel to it. We didn't want to leave! Thank you so much!

Our only concern...the lightbulbs on the main level deck were burnt well as the jacuzzi area was pitch black after dark. Just FYI. Minor.

Favorite place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's fourth time staying at Shearwater and we're already planning our next! We love that we can all (10 of us this time, but we've had as many as 14) sit around the table and eat a meal together...but there's room for everyone to have their own space as well. The owner has done several improvements in the last year including new furniture, tv, drapes and futons. Last winter the high waves took out the steps down to the beach, but they've already replaced the steps and we love wandering down the beach to the tide pools, building sandcastles and having a bonfire at the end of the day. We've always spotted whales and this time the seals were out (checking out the surfers we think!). The hot tub is perfect for the rainy/stormy days...we can't say enough about Shearwater! Last Christmas we had our 70+ parents join us, along with grandbabies as young as 1 and everyone had a super time! Michael was even kind enough to set up a Christmas tree for us to decorate. He's very easy to work with and so responsive to guests' needs. The location is perfect too...situated between Lincoln City and Newport and only a couple of miles from Depoe Bay. There's a little grocery store and coffee stand just a couple of blocks away, as well as Fishing Rock State Park within walking distance (a lovely walk/easy hike) with amazing views!

Decent place

  • 3 of 5

Our extended family has been taking a weekend trip to the Oregon coast for 16 years. This house was by far the biggest and most comfortable in terms of space. The furniture is very worn and could use more lounge chairs in the main living room. The pool table was great. The bedrooms were sort of dark, needed brighter lighting. The hardest part was we always go to a place with a hot tub, this house has one but it is in a steamy, drippy, gross shack on the side of the house that you can't see out of which is a bummer when at the beach. Great deck space and good amount of bathrooms and bedrooms. We are returning this year but hope for some new furniture and some updates because it truly is a beautiful house.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

We had our kids and grandkids meet at this house. It was perfect for our family. It gave each family their own space. The location, whale watching and kite flying was amazing. The easy walk to the beach was just what we wanted with little ones. The hot tub was broken the week we stayed so that was disappointing. (only reason for 4 stars) The large dining table was awesome for meals and adult visiting at night. The pool table was so much fun. We look forward to doing this again in the future. I would recommend this place for family get togethers. (We brought baby gates to corral little ones and that worked well)
