About Vicki

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

Why Vicki chose Coastal Oregon

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 therapeutic & spectacular, year round entertainment. We have a US Coast Guard Station, right here in our little town, located right on the Ocean.

What makes this townhome unique

We enjoy one of the most unique ocean views anywhere on the coast.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Great Value

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked the unit the first week of October. Vicki was very easy to work with, and even let us check in early.

We were impressed with the size of the unit. It looked so much bigger than the pictures showed on VRBO. We loved the tile floor and all the great amenities. The home was well stocked with paper products, cleaning products, dishes, cook ware, and they even had a crock pot and a hand mixer.

The couch and reclining chair needed some sort of padding in the arms. We could feel the wooden frame when we used the arm rests. It didn't bother me, but my husband had a hard time getting comfortable.

There was a great view of a cove across the street. However you don't get an expansive view north, on account of a rocky head, and south on account of a restaurant and trees. The grove waves were fantastic, especially on the stormy days. We were able to see whales in the cove.

The home had a lot of decorating, which I thought was charming, but for folks who are minimalists they might not appreciate it.

As stated in the listing, Hwy 101 runs past the home. There was a steady stream of cars going past. We were not bothered by the sounds but at times the big trucks blocked our view of the sea.

My favorite part of the property was the enclosed porch. Amazing.

I would highly recommed this property to friends, and I would love to stay again.

Thanks Walt and Vicki

Last Stay at this Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

We usually come in March for our Anniversary, which we did a few months back, but thought we would try a November stay. Weather was great, saw whales, visited friends and enjoyed road trips to the regions sites. Walt and Vicki provide a very outstanding place to stay while visiting the area. You need to try it as it is in a great location and has a wonderful view of the ocean. The rental is fully equiped to meet your needs. We planned to come back in March 2016 for our 54th Wedding Anniversary but due to a change in circumstance , beyond our control, we will not be able to return to this perfect place. For you pet owners you might ask if it is ok to bring your pets as there may have been a change in policy. The first 6 nights we were there a couple in the unit below had two small dogs and after they left another couple came to stay with one large one. We like animals so it did not bother us but the change might help you to bring your pet along so they can enjoy the fun also.

Excellent Property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this place last year at this time. The property is perfect. Clean, well-stocked, comfortable and in an excellent location. We went to Oregon to ride the 1 but the weather just wouldn't cooperate. We parked the bikes (covered parking - bonus!) and our riding vacation turned into a sightseeing vacation. Oregon is gorgeous - there is so much to see and do. If you simply want to hang out, the deck is great. Walk across the street and there you are - the most gorgeous cliffs and beach imaginable. Photo op heaven! We went on a lot of day hikes. Gorgeous woods and beaches to wander. We whale watched from the point right across the street from the property. Just stood there watching whales swim by. Awesome. Walt is the best host EVER. He helped us out in a tight spot. Thanks Walt!

Back for our 53rd Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

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.

Loved Our Time There!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Amazing Views, Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

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.
