Loved our visit. We’ll be returning. Listening and watching the waves for a few days was just what my soul needed.
Wendy , November 2023
Very nice updated beach cottage. Well equipped. Great ocean views! The access to beach could be worked on but there is a nice access a block from house. Some chairs on the back patio would have been nice but other than that it was perfect for our little thanksgiving gathering.
Victor , November 2023
had a wonderful stay, loved the beach and location. would definitely use sweethomes again
Jarrod , October 2023
It was super fun and such a great space! Perfect for the 4 of us. Kids had a blast on the beach and playing all the board games. House was clean and had all the things we needed! Would definitely rent again. The kitchen could use a couple baking sheets and a sharper knife but otherwise it was well stocked!
Galina , August 2023
Great location right on the beach. We enjoyed our stay.
Benjamin , July 2023
The home was very well maintained, lots of space and the access to the beach was easy to use with miles of beach to walk. Communication was on point and all instructions were easy to understand.
Debi , May 2023
Super comfy beds! Beach was very private. The rock steps to the beach weren’t super secure but with a careful step it was all good. Close to the famous big stump. Hot tub overlooking the waves was amazing! The tv room is a great flex space if you need more than 2 bedrooms.
Jessie , April 2023
Pros: Sheets super soft, plenty of towels, working hot tub, views, 2 living rooms, floor mop and vacuum is nice to use as well as washer/dryer. We loved the location and the home.
Shannon , April 2023
A wonderful property. Very quiet with a great view. We will definitely be coming back when we need to get away to relax.
Jeff , March 2023
The house was clean and had easy beach access. The hot tub was easy to figure out and the house included towels for the hot tub. Sunsets were gorgeous!
kristen , March 2023
Cozy home, just perfect for young families. The beach is incredible and the house is just like home. One of our favourite places that we just keep returning to, making new memories each time. We love it and know you will too!
Chad , February 2023
fantastic location right on the water. great hot tub with a view. responsive host(s) and even great neighbors
Matt , December 2022
Comfortable bed with a superb view. We enjoyed every minute. Waking up and watching the waves come in was the best. Thank you!
Cassandra , September 2022
We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The property and location were perfect for us and our toddler. And the neighbors were fabulous as well. Will definitely stay again
Bill , September 2022
We love Waldport and this house was perfect! Location could not be better, and the house was adorable, clean, and had everything we needed. Note: we could easily navigate the rocks down to the beach, but our dog could not. There were steps to the beach one house down, which was perfect!
Lindsey , August 2022
My husband and I initially chose this place because it was on the beach and pet friendly, but we got soooo much more than we expected. This place had the most thoughtful, cutest decor and touches throughout. Even upon arrival, we were greeted with soothing sounds playing on a TV and fresh scents. Such a peaceful welcome! The place was clean, well-stocked, and more spacious than we were expecting. Sitting in the private hot tub while listening to the ocean waves was a one-of-a-kind experience. One of the bedrooms also faced the ocean and it was so nice listening to the waves at night. I thought we might get too hot at night without central AC, but the ocean breeze really kept us cool. There was an adorable record player with tons of records and we thoroughly enjoyed listening to soothing, nostalgic music. There weren't many good restaurants close by, but Yachats 10 min south had good places and Newport 30 min north also had good places. But none of that really mattered because we were too busy enjoying the beach with our pups!! The direct access from the airbnb with so convenient to not have to get in the car. The neighbor Brenda is as sweet as EVER! I can go on and on, but all of this is to say the place was amazing and probably one of our favorite airbnbs we've ever booked. We only stayed two nights at this airbnb and wished we had stayed many more! I hope we are able to come back. One small thing to note is that if you are doing laundry, make sure the hose hanging on the front patio is not blocking the outside dryer vent (white cap) because your clothes will never dry.
Miranda , August 2022
Loved the house! Great beach right outside the back door. Definitely will be planning a future trip.
Marie , August 2022
The location is hard to beat. The home is a perfect setup for a family or small group. This was our second stay and we can’t wait to go again!
Caitlyn , July 2022
We had a delightful stay! Being right on the beach was amazing!!
Brenda , June 2022
Beautiful view and so peaceful
Raina , June 2022
This stay was absolutely amazing. You really are right on the ocean and it's very peaceful. We even met the next door neighbor and she was wonderful. We would love to stay here again and again in the future.
Sean , June 2022
Amazing place.. very clean and right on beach. Only issue we felt was it has only one bathroom.. with 6 guests in the house. But would love to come back as a single family :)
Seema , May 2022
Very clean and lovely decorated home. The location is unbelievable. Would recommend to anyone!
Mary, May 2022
This house is terrific! Amazing location and sunsets!
Sara, February 2022
Just out of town on a quiet stretch of beach. Be sure to check out Big Stump! House is charming and well provisioned.
Shaan, February 2022
We had a great stay at Once Upon a Tide. We really enjoyed accessing the beach directly from the yard, the spacious and well-organized interiors, the hot tub and mud room. It was an excellent getaway for our family of 4.
Subhadeep, December 2021
Cozy feel with comfortable king beds. All the appliances we needed and a wonderful view! Will book again!
Gwendolyn, December 2021
We couldn't recommend this place enough! The view, hot tub, decor, and proximity to the beach can't be beat. Also super close to lots of fun day trip adventures. Would definitely stay here again!
Sitting in the private hot tub with just the sound of the ocean was so relaxing and one of the best parts of the trip. The house is off the main highway, so we never heard any cars driving by. The ocean can easily be heard from inside the house with the windows open, which was another great perk. The beach is literally at the edge of the yard. Access to the beach from the yard is a little bit of a climb down some rocks (with a railing), which wasn't an issue for my husband, myself or our dogs, but would likely be an issue for those with mobility issues. We wished the TV room was more comfortable for laying around in, so we spent most of our relaxing time on the bed instead. If you active and outside, this house is a good option. Kathleen, November 2021
We can't wait to stay at this property again. It checked all of our boxes. The property was clean and well stocked. The ocean views were incredible.
The home's location is awesome - the beach is literally in the backyard! The beach wasn't busy when we visited in late September, which nearly made it feel like a "private" beach. The hot tub's view at sunset is also top notch. And the home has clearly been updated with attention to details - modernized with clean, simple lines and splashes of color. Having a record player and a stash of classical records was also an unexpected and wonderful surprise. The home isn't in walking distance of Waldport or Yachats, however, so having a car to get places is a must. The host also doesn't want dogs on furniture, and asks guests to bring blankets to place over furniture in case your dog can't follow that rule, which ours certainly can't. I found that to be a reasonable alternative.
Franny, September 2021
This place has everything you need for a coast getaway. Perfect for a small family or two couples.Caitlyn, September 2021
Beautiful home. Perfect location, right on a gorgeous piece of beach. Perfect for a family. Highly recommend.Quinlan, August 2021
Great house! Great location! Hot tub was a bonus. Dena, July 2021
This is one of the best AirBNB's my husband and I have ever stayed in! It was beautiful and a perfect location! This property had a great yard and steps down to a private beach! It was so peaceful and watching the sunset every night was great. We would wake up to the sound of the ocean every morning. This place also has a hot tub. We enjoyed many restaurant trips to Yachats with the dog, and Newport. This is a great location and an amazing find! Very clean. We can't wait to go back!
Brittany, July 2021
The location is perfect and the beach is not super crowded. They have adequate kitchen appliances; crockpot, breakfast griddle, and more. The neighbors are friendly and the hot tub worked perfectly. The beach access is a little rough, but my kids and partner were able to handle it fine. There is an easier option just about 100 yards over with stairs for easier access.
Tawnya, May 2021
Beautiful mornings on the beach and easy access to boot! Evenings were just as nice and the location and quietness of the property was awesome.
Carole, May 2021
Perfect spot for a coast getaway.
Nick, April 2021
The location was amazing! Literally steps from the beach, the beach access from the house wasn't exactly safe, but if you walked just past the neighboring house there was a much safer way down. The kitchen had a wide array of small appliances, and serving/baking dishes. Put no salt and pepper or other condiments (not sure if this is Covid related or just they norm). Hot Tub and was definitely dated but usable.
Emily, April 2021
This little house was perfect for our family of 4. The beds were very comfortable although one was very sneaky. Great access to beach made trips back and forth easy. The kids loved the hot tub too.
Megan, March 2021
Our stay could not have been better. Truly a great place to relax, unwind and enjoy the Oregon Coast. The home had everything a person would need and the sweet homes team is amazing. Our extended thanks to Kari who made sure we felt home away from home. Definitely no hesitation to return again. Highly recommend. If it says sweet homes book with eyes closed. If just doesn't get any better. Many Thanks. Look forward to next time!
Paul and Jeri, March 2021
Awesome house with easy beach access and beautiful views. Tastefully decorated and well maintained. Kitchen was stocked with just about every utensil we needed for cooking in for a week. We did bring a cast-iron skillet and were glad we did. The hot tub looked and smelt very clean and we enjoyed watching the sunsets from it most evenings. Most of all we were grateful to have our dog with us and such easy access to miles of beach whether you wanted to walk all the way to Waldport at low tide or I would venture to guess you could trek all the way to yachats going south. Our next-door neighbor was very kind and even brought us a plate of cookies one day! We had a wonderfully relaxing week!
Bryson, February 2021
Cozy, convenient and clean! We loved a mini getaway. Everything was as described. The kitchen was even better equipped than I expected! (Blender, waffle iron, crockpot!) We will definitely stay again.Kristina, February 2021
Excellent place. So quiet and so beautiful. The house has everything you need and the location even more than that, stunning, will be staying again! Mike December 2020
This place was perfect - had everything you see in the photos and very quiet area. Hot tub was in great condition as well. Ariana November 2020
This place is just lovely. Very clean and well managed, easy arrival, perfect location. The house is nicely updated with designer finishes. Great for a couple or small family, and two couples could make it work. The weekend we stayed was rainy and blustery, so we appreciated the easy beach access which allowed us to take advantage of the cloud breaks. Note that on the other side of the neighboring house there is a beach access path with better stairs, if you need them. We were fine with using the ones in the back yard. Fully functional kitchen, bring your own spices, sugar, coffee, condiments etc. Definitely five stars!
Michelle November 2020
Perfect place for a relaxing ocean getaway! We LOVED this quaint home and saw seals in the ocean every morning from the couch. The best part is the hot tub under the stars - hardly any light pollution. And you can't beat the location, right on the beach!!!
Yanna Oct 2020
This place is incredible. Ocean views. Amazing access to beach. Extremely clean. Perfect!!
Leah and Brian Oct 2020
Beautiful view, even from the front room! Kitchen was well equipped. Spaces were very useful and spacious for my family. The beach access was very easy but for myself I opted for a easier path, it was a bit scary for me. There is an easier access within a few steps of the property. The master bedroom has a very comfy bed and the ocean waves lull you to sleep! I would stay here again!!
DeAnna Oct 2020
This is a spacious home that was perfect for the four of us. It has a great backyard area that our dog loved. The yard overlooks the ocean and is just a few steps away from the sand. We made multiple trips to the hot tub and enjoyed some beautiful sunsets from the backyard while cooking steaks on the grill. This place is awesome and I can’t wait to return!
Kristy F. March, 2019
Wonderful little getaway home!
This place was the absolute perfect getaway for my Husband and I with our two dogs. The home itself is very clean, cozy and a perfect location - right on the beach and close to Waldport and Yachats. It was the perfect place for our dogs to have easy access to the beach, and the yard (while not completely fenced in), makes it very easy to keep an eye on them. We would HIGHLY recommend this house to anyone looking for a coastal getaway!
Jennifer K. September 2018
Great Beach Front Home
We had a great weekend at this beach house. It was clean, comfortable and had a wonderful view.
Jennifer K. September 2018
An adorable house and wonderful location
We have stayed in this area many, many times. This particular house is now on our favorites list. It was very comfortable and well equipped. We especially enjoyed sitting in the lawn chairs on the grass and having an unobstructed view of the beach and ocean. The rock stairs to the beach took a bit of skill to master but were manageable and we loved our long walks on the sand. We saw whales and seals and lots of birds. The weather was the best we've ever had on the Oregon coast - most days cleared off by noon and we had sunshine and very little wind. A delightful stay!
Susan L. August, 2018
We had a wonderful stay!
Easily our favorite stay yet! The view is absolutely amazing! We loved have the ocean to wake up to each morning! It was the most relaxing week ever! The aquarium was super fun! We recommend going to Seal Rock. Thank you for the great stay. It was so amazing we didn't feel the need to leave!
