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 Depoe Bay

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.

Comfortable, thoughtfully-appointed home with a great view

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely place to stay in Depoe Bay, and my husband and I are already planning a return trip. The view is great and you can easily stroll to the whale watching center and "downtown" Depoe Bay. The house is a little quirky in that you have to go through one upstairs bedroom to reach the other, but for one or two couples or a family with children, it's warm, inviting, and has everything you could want for a vacation on the coast. The kitchen is well-equipped, the furniture is comfortable, there are plenty of table lamps (hurray!) and the stock of movies, music, games, and books is great. The telescope and binoculars, desk-top computer, and Dish TV are icing on the cake. It was too rainy and windy to use the deck and grill, but there's a good restaurant, Tidal Raves, directly across the street. We also enjoyed a multi-course dinner at Beck in the Whale Cove Inn nearby.

Nice place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

We spent 3 nites at Depoe Bay. The place was very clean, and comfortable. The view was beautiful of the ocean and waves. Close to many attractions. Made short day trips to Newport, and Waldport. A great restaurant across from the unit. Make reservations early , very busy place. Enjoyed our stay, we would stay there again.

I could not say enough about how wonderful this place is to stay at. It has everything you could possibly need. You can watch whales in the Bay from the beautiful windowed front. The owner is always very helpful with any thing you may need.

Magical Weekend in a Cozy Seaside Home

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Walt and Vicki for making our weekend in Depoe Bay so fantastic! I stayed here with my parents, sister, and boyfriend, and the house (and the town!) had something for everyone. We loved watching whales from the deck, or movies in the living room; we made good use of all the amenities in the kitchen; we completed a jigsaw puzzle; we even picked blackberries on the hill in the backyard! This house had everything we needed and more. Walt came by a few times to make sure everything was going well. I really appreciated how quickly he responded to my inquiry a few weeks before our stay: I asked if they had a blender in the house, and he said they'd make one available. Great service, great stay. Thank you thank you!

Lovely Days By The Bay

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I had the privilege of staying in this beautiful and conveniently located townhome this past week. It was not only clean, but it had extra amenities (desktop computer, telescope, books/music, DVD collection etc.) that gave it that "home away from home" feel as well as an extra wow factor. The large windows looking out to the ocean were our favorite feature!

The unit was larger than the pictures showed (huge plus!) The kitchen and bathroom were very spacious, and the bedrooms were extremely cozy with comfortable beds. The private/covered parking is another feature that puts this property a step ahead of the rest. We had a slight issue with the key lockbox; I only mention it because of how quickly (literally minutes) this was remedied by the owners by having their maintenance man help us in. Excellent service by everyone all around.

We were lucky enough to get some beautiful sunshine (and a whale sighting to boot!) for our 3-day stay; making this trip an extremely memorable one, and this property as a definite one to return to. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us Walt and Vicki!

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
