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.

Nice clean well equipt home

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful house with way more amenities than most rentals, very clean and comfortable.

Nice view, great selection of cd's and dvd's. As with most rentals with king size beds, the

mattress needs replacing. upstairs tv's have some difficulties, and be aware sports fans,

no espn! Missed college bowl games we wanted to watch. Overall though, would recommend

house, especially at this reasonable price.

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!
