With its graceful, round arches, large multiple windows, and open, integrated living space, the sight-lines inside this chic and cozy Newport vacation rental cottage lead the eyes gently back to the ocean outside. Its humble, yellow exterior belies the designer lighting and an edgy decor that lends an air of luxury to this cute little cottage just six minutes from shopping and dining on Newport's iconic waterfront. Pooch will like it too! Bring your dog along (just one, please) for a $10 per-day fee ($40 minimum per stay).
The interior of this charming home shows what can be done with creative use of furnishings and lighting. A gorgeous..., earthen tile floor runs throughout, visually uniting a space that's divided only by door-less, arched entryways to each room. When the coastal skies turn gray, settle into the cozy sitting area on the plush, sectional sofa with a steaming cup of your favorite coffee (freshly ground in the grinder), slide one of the DVDs into the player and enjoy a movie on the wall-mounted flat-screen TV. After a day out on that whale-watching charter, come back to this lovely, intimate space and relax with a book, a magazine, or find that perfect seafood place in Newport for tomorrow's dinner.
When it's time for bed, settle into the comfy queen bed and let the rhythmic sound of the waves lull you to sleep. You'll sleep soundly and peacefully, snug and warm under the soft comforter and surrounded by lots of pillows. And you'll get ready for bed in the fun, uniquely designed bathroom, complete with sailboat mirrors, lighthouse toilet seat, and distinctive double sinks with stainless steel fixtures. Sorry, no washer and dryer here. But, there are three laundromats in nearby Newport, about four miles (six minutes) away.
At dinnertime, you and your S.O. can prepare a romantic meal in this gorgeous kitchen where you'll find everything you'll need to create that special entree. Just enough counter space for prep, and lots of cabinets to store your supplies. Along with a modern, stainless steel stove and fridge, there's a microwave for those times when you're in a hurry and want a quick snack, or just want a quick bowl of popcorn to enjoy with your movie. Savor your meal (and the awesome view) on the stools at the edgy bistro table in front of the big picture windows. (There's no dishwasher, but if you both pitch in at the sink, they'll be done in no time!) On those days when the coastal sun peeks through, click on the gas grill and enjoy your grilled salmon or burgers out on the roomy patio.
Shops, galleries, and a hearty meal await you at historic Nye Beach, just 10 minutes south. While you're down there, play a round of golf at Agate Beach Golf Club. Check out the lighthouse at Yaquina Head where you can learn about the lighthouse and its history at the new interpretive center. Or, make the five-minute drive down to charming and busy Newport - the "Dungeness Crab Capital of the World" - where you can enjoy a scrumptious meal (seafood or otherwise!). Lounge on the sand at one of Newport's six beaches, or take a tour of NOAA's Western Headquarters, located just across the bay. Stake out a spot on the waterfront, and watch the fleet jug into the harbor with their daily catch. Then, stroll the waterfront in Newport where you'll find tons of stores, restaurants, and even a Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum. Newport is the home of Oregon's only working fishing fleet. At dusk, watch the boats jug into the harbor with the bridge silhouetted in the setting sun.
With its great location, this comfortable and intimate unit will put you and your significant other in just the right location to afford you the privacy of a coastal retreat, and proximity to nearby Newport and all the sites and activities in the area.
