Great location, beach access
Cozy property, really nice stay. The walk down to the beach from the property can seem a bit daunting, but you get used to it. Would stay again!

This home is incredible! It is right on the ocean you can see the water from inside the house and walked right down to it out the door and down a bunch of steps. The house is cute and was perfect for my husband and I and our two dogs. Town was only about 10 minutes away with many food options, grocery store, etc. Highly recommend!

The views are wonderful. Right on the beach. The path getting down to the beach was a bit too steep for my mom. The house was very private, the ocean being the only noise. The deck and covered patio are great to hang out. Great place to look at the stars. Overall an excellent place to stay.

This is is super cozy house with unbeatable views, we felt really at home here. It’s nothing fancy but we liked the homey feel and it had everything we needed. Like staying at a friend’s house with killer views. The deck and enclosed porch let us watch the ocean in clear skies and pouring rain. There is private beach access via steps that are easy to navigate. We brought our dogs and they loved walking on the beach. We highly recommend it for a couple who want to stare at the ocean all day and listens to the waves as you go to sleep. We went in winter during one of the worst storms of the year and it was so unbelievable to watch the ocean in high winds. We’ll be back.

A lovely space to relax. The chairs halfway down the trail, set at the perfect angle to watch sunset were perfect. We enjoyed playing games, staring at the ocean, and relaxing on the couch.
We had the best view of the full moon setting whilst watching the sun rise at the same time. Amazing!

Cozy and Warm
The property was great. Quiet even though its right off the highway. The house was comfortable with great views. We loved the pathway to the beach.

Amazing view with quick access to the beach.

We fell in love with this modest, yet comfortable and clean home on a cliff right on the beach. The deck overlooking the sea was absolutely incredible and my family and golden retriever loved the private access to the miles and miles of empty, unspoiled beach! Order delivery from Clearwater in Newport...you won’t be disappointed. I was hesitant to give a public review because I wanted to keep this gem our little secret. Will absolutely be back.

Really enjoyed the stay. Access to the beach and secluded atmosphere was great.

We have been staying here over 10 years. We love it. It is so nice to hear the ocean everyday.

Perfect location and wonderful view
My husband and I had a wonderful stay with our two dogs. The house is the last house with no neighbor to one side. The private stone steps down to the beach is wide and solid, much better than the narrow and steep wooden staircase I see around the nearby houses. This place offers a quiet and center view to the waves. We had a very nice and relaxing stay.
02/24/2020 ~ VRBO
Perfect for a couple or small group.
We loved our stay here! It’s important for us to bring our fur kids and having private access to the beach was a huge perk. The house itself is a little on the dated side but we really appreciated the key features of hardwood floors, private beach access, and remote location! I recommend this for anyone looking for a low key place to stay with beach access!
01/20/2020 ~ VRBO
We had a great weekend just relaxing and walking on the beach, the cottage overlooks the ocean and it’s a very short walk down to the beach. I would stay here again.

a special place
We have stayed at Ocean Escape 6 times over the past 10 years and each visit was comfortable and relaxing. We especially appreciate the improvements including the demolition of the decrepit carport, the rip rap steps to the beach, the reinforcement of the decking on the south side and (finally) the clean windows on the patio. The house is clearly one of the oldest on that stretch of the beach frontage but still retains uniquely rustic charm. Because of its proximity to Newport and other appealing sites we will definitely return again. Meredith Lodging has added a sense of modern class to the whole renting experience. Even the housekeeping is a step above past accommodation. Don't let the price point discourage you. This spot is a gem in the rough!
We appreciate your loyalty over the year. So glad you enjoyed your last visit with us and we look forward to many more. Thank you and safe travels!

Best beachfront find!
We had the most wonderful time at Ocean Escape. We wish we could have stayed longer. I would suggest you tell guests to bring firewood for the wood stove. We had to go to the store to buy some. Other than that, the house totally lived up to our expectations and then some. The walk down to the beach is the icing on the cake. I will recommend you to all of my friends.

Beautiful view--right in the middle of wonderful things to do
This property is perfect if you are interested in sitting and watching the ocean, walking on the beach, or a base for visiting things up and down the coast. It is just as described in the listing...there were no surprises. We had 3 adults and the young adult stayed in the loft and loved sleeping to the music of the waves. It is a narrow climb so the loft wouldn't work for someone over 50-60 and up unless they were quite agile. With that said, the pictures showed that so we were not surprised. This issue was mentioned by another reviewer who said he hit his head climbing up but again that was an obvious point to be cautious and our young adult had no problems. The area is rich with things to do but because the house is the last before the forest it quiet and we only occasionally saw people on the beach. Ben from the property managers came out to help with the TV and he was awesome and he is a veritible encyclopedia of information and it was because of his description of places to visit that we went to Cape Perpetua! Worth the short drive! I would just have liked a washer-dryer---again though, that was no surprise! It is not fancy but cute and very convenient! Would rent again from this company!

September 2019 Stay
We had a great stay here. Loved the location and the closeness to the beach. While the steps may be a bit much for older folks, 1 min before the house is a park that has a very easy walking ramp to the beach. We thought the house may be a bit small for 3 adults but it wasn't and with 2 tv's/cable everyone could watch pretty much what they wanted...sports and DIY! Internet worked great on all cell phones...different brands & carriers. Loved the deck views from the ocean and the loft adult loved having the small windows open to hear the waves. Great service from the property managers and Ben was out quickly for a call for service. He was a great resource for the area. We didnt build a fire in the stand-a-lone fire box but it was working and would have easily warmed up the house. It was a great house for our needs (nothing fancy) and the location was perfect!

June 2019 Stay
We absolutely loved our stay at Ocean Escape! It is private, quaint, well stocked and just the absolute perfect place and we definitely cannot wait to return. We saw gray whales, sea lions, seals and were in awe every day by the ocean waves. The beach is fantastic and for the most part, private. The Oregon coast is a gem and we are so thankful we went out of our comfort zone and took the leap to try something new. Thank you for a wonderful place.

We absolutely loved our stay. Very peaceful and such a beautiful view of the beach. Close to a lot of other areas we explored, Depoe Bay, Newport, lighthouses, etc. We will definitely return!

Cute little beach house
This was the perfect place for my mom and I to rent. It’s a cute little cabin close to town, and right on the beach. We go to the coast every summer and loved staying here. The rock stairs down the the beach were a little difficult to traverse, but we still appreciated having private access to the beach. We brought the dogs who had a great time too. The only thing we could think of changing would be to add some comfy deck furniture since it’s where we spent the majority of our time - who could blame us with that view! Good thing I thought ahead and brought camping chairs just in case. All in all, it’s a great little place to stay. We’re planning on renting again next year if we can!

Cozy as could be!
We had a fantastic stay at Ocean Escape. The view was to-die-for and the house was so cozy during winter-coast-weather. This was everything we were looking for in a place and we'll definitely be back
Megan thank you for your wonderful review of Ocean Escape! We are happy you had a fantastic cozy stay! Hope you come stay again soon!

Felt like the beach was all ours and the views were amazing.
What a wonderful, peaceful place to spend time watching the waves break on a beautiful beach! From high above the beach we could see forever and really enjoyed the new rocks steps down to the beach. Look forward to coming back if we can.
Thank Brian for your sweet review of your stay at Ocean Escape! We love this home too and you MUST find a way to come back and stay! Thank you again and have a wonderful rest of the 2018!

Cute, cozy cabin
We've been to the Oregon coast many times, but this is our first stay at this house. We loved how close it was to Newport, but also far enough away to enjoy the serenity of the ocean. It has incredible beach access and we loved the 2 decks, one covered in case of bad weather. Thank you so much!
Well thank you Emil for taking the time to give your great review of your stay at Ocean Escape! We really enjoy this house too and the location along with the amazing beach access all help to create wonderful memories! Come back and stay with us again soon Emily!

The Beach House was awesome, had everything we could have asked for. The location was the best. We could walk right down to the beach and the beach toys was perfect for our granddaughter. Thanks for everything.
Tammi thank you for your review of Ocean Escape! The views are amazing! You can't get much closer to the ocean! Hope you come visit the coast again soon!

Beautiful and Amazing!
This is a perfect vacation rental. The beach is beautiful and almost deserted. There were never more than a handful of people within sight, and often there were none. We saw seals and whales from the deck, much closer and more impressive that we could have imagined.
The house and furnishings were very comfortable for us, two adults and a dog. The water pressure is good, and the shower gets nice and hot. The property is not flashy and does not have lots of frills. There is no dishwasher or washer/dryer, but these are not hardships.
This is a perfect place to unwind and just let yourself feel completely engaged with the ocean. A wonderful ocean escape!
Jennifer thank you for your review of Ocean Escape. We are happy to hear that you had a wonderful trip! Having the beach all to yourself can make the trip that much better! Come visit the coast again soon!

While traveling across the country
WOW, what a magnificent property. VIEWS views and more views. This was one great stop while traveling cross country, from New Jersey. This place has a 50 foot rock cliff to the beach. Loved the hike down to the beach. Also a landing area for morning coffee, to watch sun up and down. Lv to come back.
We would love to have you back Thomas! Thank you for the great review. Next time you need an escape from New Jersey we hope you come stay with us again!

Beautiful and Relaxing!
We stayed 10 nights at Ocean Escape and we loved it! The views are fantastic, the beach is great for beachcombing and long walks. The rock staircase is truly an engineering feat and blends in wonderfully. We saw several people walking by that were remarking about it. Some of the steps are pretty high, so it is a workout if you do it several times a day like we did. We really liked having the closed in patio in addition to the open patio with the benches to watch the tides come in and out and the boats go by. We also saw whales! Bring your binoculars, or you can use the telescope they provide. The house is well equipped and clean. The bed was very comfortable. We will be back!
