Dream Homes of Oregon Reviews

Plan your vacation on the coast

Wow! All I can say is Wow. I wanted to give this place 6 stars for accuracy because the listing was so much nicer than described. We stayed on a cold and icy weekend and the home is cozy and right across from the beach with a great view of the lighthouse. Hot tub, sauna, spacious AND pet friendly. We found everything we needed to cook our meals. The home is bigger than expected. The master bedroom is huge, with hot tub and sauna off this room (indoors.) There are 2 other bedrooms, plus a bonus room with pull out couch and then the cute loft upstairs. Highly recommended.

My family of seven stayed in Lauri’s home for five days. We had a wonderful stay! The house is well appointed with modern furnishings and very new comfortable beds. Every room was beautifully decorated and stylish. The location is awesome with gorgeous bay views from the back windows, where seals can be spotted playing. The house was very clean, spacious, and welcoming. We definitely recommend this house and Lauri as a host!

Beautiful Big House, Big Family Fun!

We all loved all the personal touches that went into this house. All the bedrooms were stunning. New kitchen, new appliances. The master bedroom suite is an entire floor, and is bigger than some vacation homes we have stayed in. Three large decks were great for our family and we loved the largest deck with an outdoor granite table for 8 and a new grill for our alfresco seafood meals. The spa is in an enclosed sunporch and was very clean and perfect for our group. We appreciated having dog beds, and dog food and water bowls for our pups. The secret game room was great. It gave our teenagers a place to hang out and watch movies or play games while the grown-ups drank wine on the decks 🙂 Coast park, right across the street from the house, was perfect for the littler kids as they could play to their hearts content. We could all go to the beach or restaurants within a short walk. You can’t beat the location. A real gem in the heart of Nye Beach. We hope to be back soon.

AMAZING

My family of four (we have a tween and teen) needed a quiet escape to the Oregon Coast to re-charge, and this house was exactly what we needed. We were looking for a home with ocean views, easy beach access, a hot tub, okay for our dog, and all for a decent price, and that’s what Lauri’s house in Newport provided. Our kids didn’t spend much time in the loft, but I’m sure they would have when they were younger, or if we’d been with a bigger group. We enjoyed surprisingly sunny weather much of our stay, with just enough chilly rain to remind us that we really were in Oregon. The huge master bath, including the hot tub and sauna, was a real treat, as were the well-placed skylights in two of the bedrooms. The separate heating in each bedroom took a little effort to get used to, but we got the hang of it, and the cozy feel of the electric fireplaces was nice. We enjoyed many trips down to the beach via the foot path directly across the street from the house. It gets slippery in the rain, so good hiking shoes are helpful. (It would be a shame to miss an Oregon sunset on the beach!) I appreciated Lauri’s responsiveness both during booking, just before our arrival, and when we arrived at the house. It makes a huge difference! We would definitely stay here again, and all four of us highly recommend a stay in this house if you’re seeking a restorative beach-side getaway.

PERFECT SUMMER GETAWAY

My husband and I spent a relaxing week here – along with our little dog, Molly. We walked the beach 2-3x/day and the weather was just perfect. We spent several days exploring up and down the Oregon coast but made sure we found time to spend in the hot tub every day. We loved sitting on the front porch and watching the beach goers along with all the friendly neighbors with dogs. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed, the living room area a perfect place to read the summer books I had brought. The king size bed in the master bedroom was perfect for my very tall husband and loved the large shower in the master bath too. The big screen TV in the family room made for a great “movie watching” day the one day it was rainy and gloomy we were there. While it was just the 2 of use, there was plenty of room for a larger family. Overall, a great house, lots to offer, the amenities were well worth the nightly rate and I would highly recommend this property!.

Amazing

This home was wonderful; we were 5 adults and there was more than enough room. The furnishings were comfortable, the kitchen well supplied and 3 bathrooms made life easy for everyone. There are three patios, one with the BBQ and dining table and the other with two rockers facing the ocean; very nice for reading. The entire 3rd floor is the 3rd bedroom/bathroom with beautiful views and tasteful decorating. There is a claw foot tub that is wonderful for a relaxing soak after a day at the beach or out and about exploring the area. The beach is a block from the house which is very convenient. If you have children there is a great park just across the road. There are robes, towels and beach towels in abundant supply and a washer and dryer on two floors which was very convenient. When not at the beach or about town, the entertainment room was great, with lots of games and entertainment center. Lauri was very good to deal with and responded quickly to inquiries. We have stayed in many VRBO homes and this was definitely one of the nicest. Would definitely come back again if in the area.

Amazing home, unbeatable location.

We loved the location, the decor, and that we could head out the door and were just steps to the beach, shops and restaurants. Lauri was great to work with. Friendly and quick to respond. Looking forward to our next visit!

Blissful

This is a lovely property. The owners have done an amazing job with the decor and making sure our stay was amazing. The location of the house is perfect. It’s on a very quiet street, and the view and gentle roar of the ocean is tranquil. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you to the owners!!

This house is amazing

We were a family of 6 and there was enough room for everyone to still have thier own space. The location is top notch. It was centrally located as we went to wineries and up and down the coast. The owner Lauri was very helpful in everything we needed. In fact installed a projector and screen for our viewing pleasure. The views from the house is wonderful being able to watch the boats and people clamming right out the window. Perfect for your four legged babies as there was places to walk them and not a lot of traffic. I recommend this place with 5 stars and cannot wait to go back. I recommend taking a crab trip and glass blowing class. It’s an experience of a lifetime. Again this place is the best!!!!!

Great home, fabulous views

We had a wonderful 4 day stay over the 4th of July weekend. The house was very clean and comfortable. When not out walking or exploring town we sat in the sitting area off of the kitchen (in photo) and watched the river traffic – great fun. We would absolutely stay here again. Lauri’s attention to detail and providing for dogs (our two Shibas loved the place) are over the top. High recommend this home to others.

Yaquina Bay Club

Everything was perfect. The house, the views, the location

Beautiful home, fully stocked, amazing views. Watching the sea lions frolicking out the front window was the best. Great location for walking and exploring. Lauri was very nice and answered questions.

Yaquina Bay Club

We had a wonderful time staying here. The location is perfect. You can watch the waves, watch the weather roll in and walk the beach. The house was incredibly clean. The kitchen has everything you need. The fireplaces and comfortable chairs and couches make it easy to sit near the fire and watch the waves. We had a wonderful time staying here.

Beautiful home.

This property overlooks the bay and you can spend hours watching the seals play and the birds diving for fish. We were lucky to spot an Osprey nest and watched the pair take turns sitting on their eggs. Easy access to the Rogue Brewery, the Aquarium and the Hatfield Science Center. This home is very spacious and comfortable and we enjoyed our week there.

Yaquina Bay Club

This place was fantastic. Accommodated all of our needs and was a close walk to the beach! Very clean, spacious, and extremely well kept. Couldn’t have stayed at a better home in Newport. Wonderful and attentive host as well. Definitely will be staying again. In my husband’s words “the place was freaking awesome!”

Yaquina Surf Camp

What a fantastic stay! It’s hard to find convenient accommodations with our kids and this was truly a stay to remember, for all the right reasons. We loved every bit of it. We honestly spent a good portion of our trip just hanging out, cooking tasty meals, and playing in the secret game room. Would definitely come to this home again. It was also the perfect romantic get away for me and the spouse, which is also hard to find with kids. We loved the hot tub and the master suite. Things were set up really conveniently.

Captain’s Quarters

Family or 4 or 6 perfect. Well-supplied kitchen, very clean throughout, great open space upstairs with long bar but also dining table and sitting area. Very spacious and is really like two separate living areas. Our daughter had beautiful view/room downstairs that she made her own. Son had room with twin beds and they shared their own bathroom. I imagine on the coast it’s hard to keep exterior windows clean but even so the views of bay/bridge were wonderful to wake to. Occasional seals, telescope provided and yards from the South Jetty trail (walking, kids climbing rocks, easy access to South Beach). Quiet (save the sound beacon at the end of the jetty! 🙂 ) and lovely deck with well-functioning Jacuzzi as well. Appreciated the separate desk to set laptops up on for work space. Even with mildly warmer temps the home was very comfortable with windows open. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Yaquina Bay Club

Fabulous home, beautifully decorated, incredible location,walking and biking distance to the very beautiful South Beach and super close drive to downtown and bayfront and the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in. We hope to be back next summer for a longer stay !

Yaquina Bay Club

This apartment is in the best location! Very short walk to great beach and to coffee and good restaurants. Cozy, stylish apartment with good amenities. Best area of Newport!

The Landing

The home was absolutely beautiful had everything we needed for our weekend. And located close to everything shops restaurants and cafes. And so close to the beach. Was able to walk everywhere no need to drive. And had a beautiful view. Couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. And our pup loved it too! Great communication Lauri answered every question we had really quick and gave recommended places.

The Landing

OUTSTANDING! The whale watching deck was great, the hot tub in the master bathroom was awesome, the beds and furniture super comfortable. Everything you need and more. The small trail to the beach was neat, the places to eat and shop at were very cool a fairly priced. The people there are super nice. Dog friendly. We will come back with some friends and kids and have a blasty blast! Lots of ceiling windows!

Yaquina Surf Camp

This 3 bedroom two full bath condo has a lovely view of the harbor and bridge. We were able to watch seals and sea lions and water birds (and lots of songbirds and hummingbirds!) during our stay. Even a spotting scope was provided. The kitchen was well equipped with the usual implements, including a waffle iron and spices. There were several games and interesting books in the home. We enjoyed sitting in the hot tub relaxing on the deck. You can easily walk to the Rogue brewery and the aquarium in one direction, and South Beach in the other. South Beach was quite windy on a sunny day and we got a lot of sand in our faces and it was colder than we expected for a sunny spring day so be aware and prepared for those possibilities. The condo was larger than what we needed for our family of four, it could easily accommodate two families or three couples, but we still felt the value as good. We didn’t bring a dog but it was well equipped with food and water dishes, a crate and dog enclosure in the garage.
