    We are a group of ladies who have known each other for about 55 years. We travel twice a year to many different places. This is our second stay at Sweet Retreat in South Beach Oregon. This is one of our favorite get-a-ways. The house is wonderful and roomy. The view is out of this world. The back of the house is all glass and faces the ocean. The weather was wonderful and we spent time out on the deck that covers the whole length of the house. We would all recommend this wonderful house as a retreat from the world.

    Sue C from West Richland, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We came here with my husband, kids, and his family. There were 9 of us and we were very comfortable! We would for sure stay here again. The views were amazing. We saw many whales from the deck. This house is a cliff view so beach access isn't right out the door. The beach access ad was confusing. A sign said no trespassing so we thought we had the wrong place. This access is not trespassing if your house is there, which this house is. We found an easier beach access. You go out the door to the road, turn right and on your left is a trail that leads down to the beach. Also important to note, is there is no cell service. This was fine by us but if you were here on business or something, this would be important to note. House was very clean, beds were comfortable. 5 stars. 🙂

    • Manager Responded on 9/18/2017

      Just a clarification ** The beach access that is to the left of the house (facing the house), is not accessible to guests due to a note from the HOA. (no trespassing - means NO trespassing). Please use only the designated trails suggested by the office, so that we are following all the rules of the neighborhood. The house has a beautiful view and upper deck that look at over the ocean.

    This was my wife's and my second time at this house and our kids first. As before, we all loved the house and the location couldn't be better. You maintain a really nice house. It didn't look like it hanged at all in the last four years. It was wonderful. We made great memories with the kids and grandkids and that is what it is all about. They loved their first time at the ocean. We have stayed in houses that were less than satisfactory but a house should never be a distraction from a vacation and this wasn't. It complimented it very well. It was a great hub for all our activities.

    a guest from Vashon, WA recommends this vacation rental

    My family and I enjoyed our time at the house. Located at the end of the cul de sac our stay was quiet, so we could enjoy the vast sounds of the ocean waves. Beach is very easily accessible. Only complaint is some of the beds are slightly squeaky when you move around, floor upstairs is also quite squeaky above the downstairs bedroom. Staff at Bayshore was extremely pleasant and helpful. Would definitely return here again!

    • Manager Responded on 8/6/2017

      Thanks! The beds are brand new, so we will have to check out the squeaks, the home is about 15 years old, so not that old that the floor should be squeaky but thanks for bringing that to our attention. Hope to see you again soon~

    Greatly enjoyed this rental. Loved the ocean views from the living area and three of the four bedrooms.
    Two negatives were the lack of easy access to the beach and the stove burners that got too hot despite efforts to lower the heat.

    • Manager Responded on 6/25/2017

      Thanks for the review, we will have the stove checked out. We cannot do anything about the beach access, it's a high bank home meaning it has the best views because it sits up high above the ocean floor. We hope you had a good time and will return again soon. (There is a very easy beach access within the neighborhood).

    Nine of us stayed here to celebrate a family member's graduation from OSU in Corvallis.
    Great open floor plan. Very well-equipped kitchen. Great uninterrupted view of the ocean from the main room and the deck. It's about a half-mile walk back up the street to get to the beach access - not too bad.
    Fireplace was out-of-order during our stay. Other than that the place is as-advertised and we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay there.

    Joyce D from Oregon City, OR recommends this vacation rental

    There are more pros then cons to our stay at this beautiful house. It is bright and airy. There are views of the ocean from almost every room. The kitchen is fully stocked. Furniture and decorations attractive and comfy. Toilet was not working properly and management responded quickly. I wished for a shorter direct beach access but the walk was doable for everyone but our two year old granddaughter. The positive parts of the walk were the bunny, the chipmunks, the beautiful neighborhood, and the very friendly neighbors. I have never seen such friendliness in a neighborhood. Made me want to move there. The biggest con of the visit was the smelly linens. Mostly the towels. Everyone in our group complained about the musty smell in the towels. I noticed mold in the washer. I suppose it is from not leaving the door open to the front loader. We thought maybe next time we would bring our own towels. There is a moldy smell in the downstairs bedroom. There were a few spiderwebs hanging from the ceiling in the bathroom down there too. Along with a daddy long leg spider. I was surprised to read the reviews and no mention was made about the smelly towels. They probably remembered their great time instead. As I said, there were more pros then cons to our stay. Oh, and the beds were comfortable too. Ours looked right out at the ocean and the view was amazing. Especially waking up at night to see the moon shining on the water! Memories that will last a lifetime!

    • Manager Responded on 6/25/2017

      Thanks for the "mostly positive" review. We did speak to the cleaner about the towels, they have been rewashed, it's an easy fix. Not sure why anyone else would mention it on a review if their towels didn't smell, we wash them in hot water each time, perhaps they didn't get dry enough between guests. Sometimes when guests use all the towels and we have a lot to wash with towels and sheets between guests, they may be been hung up too quickly. Anyway, glad you had a good stay otherwise....

    Angela H from Portland, OR recommends this vacation rental

    The view cannot be beat and access to a private beach 1/2 mile away is lovely. The home has some wear, windows were leaking and two bedrooms had ZERO heat which made a November stay pretty chilly (each room was 64 degrees at night). The couch and chairs are pretty well beat up and should be replaced. The kitchen was well appointed but dated appliances. The house itself served us well with 4 bedroom and 3 bath- we had enough space to feel comfortable.

    View is 5 star, home is 4 star, and furniture is 2 star.

    • Manager Responded on 12/2/2016

      Thanks for the honest review, we will see what we can do about the furniture and the leaks! The heat issues could have easily been resolved if you would have called us to let us know, we would have responded within the hour. We never understand why we always tell our guests that we are on call 24/7 and yet they wait till they get home and write a review to let us know of issues that could have been resolved easily with a phone call. No problem is ignored, we are always happy to help and would have never wanted or expected you to not have heat! Usually those heaters stop because a suitcase or something is set in front of them to stop a fire, all they need is a simple reset by pushing a button. Please guests, call us when you have problems! ***UPDATE** New sectional has been put into the house, along with new Queen beds in the Master and upstairs bedroom.

    We love this house and have stayed here over the years.
    This year (as was true last year)..the propane was empty. This year we asked and were told it was just refilled. It was empty.
    The oven did not work so we could not bake the pie my sister made

    • Manager Responded on 9/10/2016

      After talking with my staff they reported that we didn't know the oven wasn't working until your departure. We are in the process of purchasing a new one but it takes time since it is a built in and no longer available. Also, we did refill the propane before you arrived because we remembered last summer's incident when you got upset that you ran out and we brought up a new tank at 8 pm that evening. So, we had one extra in case. We are really trying!

    a guest from Carnation, WA does not recommend this vacation rental.

    The view was good of the ocean and the proximity to the trail to the beach was perfect. The layout of the house was nice and the kitchen worked fine. The downsides are, literally none of the furniture or beds are comfortable. I read a retreat said this and thought for sure they were just picky, but it's true. Also when you sit on the porch to watch the ocean there is a bar in the way which is unfortunate. The house was also covered in dust. And ceilings covered with mold spots in the bathroom. There are some cleaning problems for sure. The toaster doesn't work and under the sink smells really bad. The house just needs a little love. It looks like it's just been rented out over and over again and the owners don't really update or take care of things. Most likely I won't stay at this particular house again, but I will stay at south beach. It's my favorite beach in all the world.

    • Manager Responded on 8/19/2016

      Gosh, we are so sorry this happened to you. We will definitely be in touch with you to work out some way of reimbursing you for your trouble. The same cleaner cleans that house and it's usually very clean. We will definitely look into the problem and get back to you. Thanks so much for your honesty.

    This is our 4th time using this wonderful home. The porch view and living room is priceless, the neighborhood is filled with wonderful and warm residence which makes it a great place to take your walks. It's close enough to towns for all your city needs. The house is equipped with all you need and after a while you actually know where the flatware is kept. We are looking forward to our next stay. We save thousands of dollars not owning our own beach house or vacation home by renting when we want to and this house as well as others that we have rented from Bayshore certainly fit our style.

    This was our second stay at Sweet Retreat, and once again we all had a wonderful time. The house is ideal for us - 5 adults and 3 children, and with the great weather we had, just sitting out on the deck watching the ocean each day was truly relaxing and therapeutic. It's easy to get into Newport and visit the "Crab Shack" just a short drive away, for some of their wonderful seafood, and there are good restaurants in the town.

    We had a great time at Sweat Retreat. The house was very spacious and well laid out. The listing photo doesn't do the house justice. The house was very clean and well furnished. Most of the rooms have an unobstructed view of the ocean. It is a bit of a walk to get down to the beach, as others have noted. Our contact with Bayshore Rentals was minimal, as everything went extremely smooth. They were very helpful and professional through the rental process. We had a great time and would recommend this property.

    6 ladies rented this home for a quilting weekend. After rearranging furniture and opening up space in the main living room we did great! Great lighting! The banister above was our showing station of quilts completed and hung from there. It was really nice. The home provides books to read and those were enjoyed. comfortable furniture. A well stocked kitchen. Beds were comfortable. The beach access was quite a walk until some of the ladies discovered a much closer access a few hundred feet from the home to the south. I have never seen a garage so small for such a big house! It wasn't usable at all. We parked without problem. The bank on the road where you enter driveway was occupied by big trucks who were building the home next door until Friday night late. That ended doubling as another place to park. Overall we plan to rent this place again in the fall if possible. We had a great view of the ocean, boats and even a spouting/cresting whale.

It is a beautiful home, very cheerful and well designed. We really enjoyed the ocean view and the outdoor deck-we even saw whales and eagles! It was very clean and well supplied with all the appliances and amenities we needed,
    The realty company was very helpful. We had a problem with the lock box and they sent out a maintenance man right away on a Sunday AM am fixed it for us. They also called during our stay to check that everything was satisfactory. We were very pleased with this rental and hope to enjoy it again in the future . I have already recommended it to a friend.

We trade who reserves a place each year, and the couple responsible for this coming year has already reserved this house. The only issue we had was that the microwave oven didn't work. We called Bayshore Rentals, and they replaced it within a few hours. Great service. House has a wonderful view of the ocean. Beach access isn't direct, but isn't very far either.

    a guest from the dalles, OR recommends this vacation rental

    Spotlessly clean, great floor plan, and charming decor! We had a marvelous time. Our only (constructive) criticism was that the wall oven was too tiny. We cooked a small (12 pound) turkey which took up the entire oven. No room to cook our side dishes. We had to partially cook the side dishes at noon, take them out shortly thereafter to get the turkey into the oven for several hours, take out the turkey, put the side dishes back in to finish cooking while the turkey went cold. We were a party of five, half the house capacity. Had there been ten of us, which would have required an 18-20 pound turkey, a big bird like that would not have fit into the oven. Highly recommend the owners install a large capacity oven below the cook top and then either keep the current, tiny wall oven or replace it with a new, larger capacity wall oven. Also, the tiny wall oven is not properly calibrated. We baked several batches of cookies and they came out raw, even after putting them back into the oven for many more minutes.

    BUT, aside from the oven issue, the house was clean and comfortable and the decor is charming. We had a wonderful time.

    • Manager Responded on 1/4/2016

      Thanks for the positive review. In all the years no one has ever mentioned the size of the oven, we are sorry if you were inconvenienced. We will check out the calibration of the oven, that could be an issue for other guests. We hope you will return again soon.

    Have stayed here several times. Nice space for our entire family and great views/access to the ocean. The deck furniture is getting a little worn and dilapidated. Also, not even leaving a roll of paper towels for the convenience of new arrivals seems a bit too spartan. All in all, a good bargain and we will return.

    This wonderful home is hands down,one of the nicest property's we have ever stayed at. Our family visits the coast for a week each summer. We have done so for the past seventeen years, and always stay someplace different. We ALL agree Sweet Retreat is at the top of the list. This lovely home has everything you could possibly want in a vacation "home away from home". The layout is wonderfully designed.Clearly, a great deal of thought went into every detail of this home. The views from each room are fantastic, the kitchen is perfect,with everything one needs to make great meals.The living room is very comfortable, the big denim couch became everyone's favorite place to hang out.Also the bedrooms are very cute,and the beds are comfortable.We were impressed at how clean the house was as well. We highly recommend this gorgeous home to any family looking for a place to make happy memories a guarantee.

    This is our 8th visit to this beautiful house. It is so well designed and is the perfect fit for our multi-generational family. We love watching the whales and fishing boats from the deck which extends across the whole back of the house. The location is perfect for all the things we love to do on the Oregon Coast. The people at Bayside couldn't be more accommodating and are wonderful to work with. We just can't wait to come back.

    This house is a wonderful place to stay. We had a large group and we had plenty of space. The house was stocked with everything a person would need. It also had both a gas grill and charcoal BBQ for outdoor cooking! We had gorgeous weather so got to utilize the outside deck space a lot. We had numerous nights that we sat and watched the whales pass by!! Also enjoyed the easy access to the beach. Fabulous house and will definitely come back again!

    The company we went through were incredibly nice, helpful, and easy to work with. House on the outside looks a little older but on the inside absolutely beautiful. Sleeps ten easily and could sleep more if allowed. Love the big open kitchen dining living room, great for entertaining a group. Views from deck phenomenal! We saw whales and had an amazing feast as the sun set. Only complaint is cell phone service is ****** - but who needs that when your having a blast. Would be great if somehow could add a hot tub or something then Inwould never leave. Short cab ride to the bay front and pizza delivers!

    We had a nice stay at this house. Three families, my parents, my sister and her family and my family all stayed very comfortably at this house. The kitchen was well stocked. The laundry room had all of necessities. There was soft soap at all of the sinks - not much was missing. The only gripe I would have would be the $100 house cleaning fee when they want you to strip the beds of all the linens and bring them down to laundry room, bring all of the towels to the laundry (start a load of laundry), gather all of the garbage and bring it down to garbage can, wash all of the dishes, etc... Seems like a lot of demands when you are paying them to take of that.

    Sweet Retreat is a wonderful beach front home with room for 10 people. We have stayed there with three couples and four children many times. The kitchen is great for cooking and entertaining, and the living room/dining room/kitchen has a panoramic view of the ocean. A short walk to the beach takes us to magical times, and a wonderful deck is perfect for gin and tonics at sunset. Thank you, Bayshore Rentals, you are wonderful to work with. We have appreciated all the years we have been renting through you. (We have stayed at other houses as well as Sweet Retreat, but this one is our favorite for this big group). Even if the weather is stormy, I love watching the weather come in and go out. It's a magical place to stay. Bedrooms and beds are great too!

Sweet Retreat was perfect, well set, near the beach, good space, and was in reality everything the individual pictures in the advertising represented. The only problem we see is that the front picture shows a boring house. In actuality, the home has terrific windows throughout, all ocean view. The family room kitchen space is perfect for a group of five. The bedrooms look out on the sea and are large and bright. You can not appreciate the full value of the home from the picture of the front.

    I would recommend this property to any of my friends. PS.. I saw a post about the beach access and having to drive to it.. There is actually a trail down to the beach just past the property located at the end of the drive (just next door). You have to skirt the front of the next door property and then take a narrow little trial down to the beach. It is a little steep, but not too far down. There is also a road you can use if you go back up to the highway that would be good if you wanted to take chairs or a picnic down to the beach.

    Our party of 10 stayed in this house for 4 days and had a wonderful time! Upon walking into the front door you are greeted with bright, cheerful colors and decorations that give it a very "homey" feel. The layout is interesting and fun! Everything that you need is supplied, the only problem we had with the amenities were the dull knives. We weren't able to successfully cut much. The furniture is all very clean and in great condition. The beds were also very comfortable. The location is great as well! The ocean is clearly visible through most of the windows, including the entire panel of windows in the kitchen/living room area where it's easy to spot whales. We spent a good portion of our time with binoculars viewing whales from the kitchen!There is a nice beach access, but driving to it is easier than walking as it is further than expected. In addition, the house isn't very far from Newport, making grocery or leisure trips do-able. The only other slight issue we had was the bathroom arrangement. Aside from the master suite, there is only a full bath upstairs plus a half downstairs. Fitting most of the house in 1.5 bathrooms was somewhat inconvenient. All-in-all a very clean, comfortable, relaxing home that made us all sad to leave!

    • Manager Responded on 3/22/2013

      We don't ask you to do the laundry, simply do up some towels as you can. The washing machine and dryer is really small for that home and all the towels we supply. It's so helpful for the cleaners not to have to spend an extra 4 hours just waiting for towels to dry. Sweet Retreat is very large and there's a lot of surface to clean. We do appreciate your feed back.

    We had a wonderful few days! The house was perfect for our group, and the gathering areas made it great for all the visiting together. Glad we brought our own chairs for deck, so we had enough for everyone. The bath faucet is "unusual" and had us stumped as to how to get the shower on... putting up a sign or a different spout would make things easier. We would have loved a fire in the evenings, or even in the cold morning times, but were told it wasn't turned on until winter. It would have added to the ambiance of being at the beach. Overall, we all would like to return next year!

      We apologize for the fireplace, it's usually so warm in our homes facing the west with lots of windows that we don't have availability in the summer in some homes. We will put up a sign for the shower, we did have one there at one time. So glad you enjoyed your stay.

    Great place, beautiful location,Bayshorte staff friendly and helpful... only changes I would like to see are 1. queen or king size beds in the 2 main bedrooms with higher quality mattress and bedspring (they hurt both my wife and mine old backs) 2. keybox put in use so guests do not have to pick up and drop off keys in Waldport, it is an 8+ hour drive from Vancouver so adding the drive to Waldport and back (about 40 minutes?)makes it seem that much longer...we have stayed at several places in Northern Oregon that all have had keybox's.

    Thanks!

    • Manager Responded on 9/19/2012

      We do have a lockbox at the house, so not sure why you were not informed of that and we apologize. It's in plain sight also, sorry it was overlooked. All the bedrooms have queen beds, not sure about the quality though, we will look into it. Glad you thought we were "friendly and helpful", thanks!

    This is the second time we have rented this house. We LOVE the house, but this is the second year the weather has been unwelcoming; but, we might have considered coming back, but we were literally 'thrown off' at the ending. It is true that with our large family and little ones it was challenging to get out of the house at EXACTLY 11 a.m., we did our best though. My daughter called the mgr. and let her know we would be out soon, in about 20 minutes, which I think was over the 11 a.m. and what should we do with the keys. She told my daughter just to leave them if we were going to be leaving, but then before we were fully out, she arrived and started going through the kitchen, she was actually slamming things around. Very much an attitude of not really caring about us as a family, she didn't connect or communicate with us, like saying "HI! I hope it's okay if I come in and start working on the house, and hope your stay was great." We were fully out, just checking last minute stuff, doing a sweep to make sure all was out when she arrived. There were NO smiles, no connection whatsoever. I came out of the back bedroom having no idea she was there and saw a person in the kitchen I did not know. Out front my kids told me who she was so I went in and introduced myself and thanked her, she barely acknowledged that. Sorry but this person is NOT someone you want to represent your house. That was ridiculous! We all left feeling let down, especially after we tried so hard to follow all instructions. We left that house CLEAN, I KNOW because I used to manage houses in the Yachats area. Our family believes in integrity and caring for others. Clearly we did not get that in return. Still, we realize that perhaps she was having a personally difficult day, and that is normal, but as a representative of the property, she needs to hear that whatever brought her to the house that day with that attitude while we were still there, it left us feeling disrespected. Thank you.

    • Manager Responded on 8/20/2012

      I apologize for the lack of respect to your family. This person must have been a cleaner, she was not the management. Our cleaners feel a huge pressure to get into the home and get it ready for the next guest. If you were sitll in the home after 11 am, we have intsturcted our cleaners to begin cleaning. Sweet Retreat is a very large home and depending on how it was left by the previous guests can take many hours to clean. On the flip side the cleaner might have felt "disrespected" for having to work around your family when it clearly states check out is at 11 am. It's very difficult to get these homes cleaned and ready for the next guests who, sometimes show up early hoping to get in to the home early. Everyone is under pressure this time of year to please the outgoing guests and the incoming guests. We hope you will return, but please resepect the 11 am check out time. Thank you.

    This beautiful beach house is at a convenient yet secluded location south of Newport. It is light and bright, perfect for a beach stay. Access to the beach was a little awkward but very manageable. The views were excellent from all rooms except one bedroom which faced the east. It was still a lovely room. The kitchen/dining area was well equipped and well accomodated our group. Since this trip was a first time visit to the Pacific ocean for some of our family members, this home was a fabulous pick tuly giving the best of what our Oregon coast has to offer. The staff at Bayshore Rentals were so helpful and accomodating. We certainly look forward to renting again!!!

    This Beach House is amazing for a family vacation! The view of the beach is perfect and we loved it! It is a lot bigger than it looks in the photos on-line, bright and cheery. Afternoons were sometimes too bright, but we just lowered the blinds half way down on the amazing wall of windows and that made it perfect! The worst part of this vacation was leaving!

    Just returned home from our 3rd stay at this beautiful home on the Coast;the perfect place for a relaxing vacation. My first and only choice when vacationing to Oregon. Clean, so comfortable and the views from the deck are breathtaking. We've clelbrated 2 birthdays there over the years. If I had to make any negative comment, it would be this (albeit, so very minor) that there just weren't enough lounge chairs on the deck for all our guests. Otherwise, PERFECT & BEAUTIFUL home.

    We enjoyed our stay very much, and found the home and location lovely.
    My recommendations would be to more fully supply with essentials. There was no foil or bar soap. Also the kitchen pots & pan needed an upgrade and glasses were a mix match. Also the carpets could have used a cleaning.

    We had a great time staying at Sweet Retreat.... The house was clean and fully stocked with every cooking utencil, towel, and linen we could want. The only thing that was a little deciving was the overall size of the main living quaters. We had planned to have a party of 7 stay with us over Thanksgiving but only 4 ended up making the trip. The pictures are a little deciving on the living room size, if all 7 people would have arrived it would have been a tight fit. The bedrooms on the other hadn were perfect..... I loved waking up every morning to the sound of the ocean.... Great Rental, I would highly recommend.

    We look forward every year to coming back to Sweet Retreat. The house is so well designed and so comfortable. The views are magnificent and the sunsets even more colorful in the fall. Susan, Barbara and the rest of the staff are great about instantly responding to any requests (a highchair for our granddaughter or fixing the wall switch on the fireplace) and we look forward to our next visit from the very day we leave. Our one suggestion would be to have Wi-Fi available.

    This place was a breathless walking into it once we unlocked the doors, the kids were enamored. The plan was to go do the typical Undersea gardens/Ripley's museum/Hatfield Science center stuff. We did none of it due to the lure of how wonderfully homey
    the place was and we just spent time on the beach below. Cooking meals were a delight in the open area kitchen as conversations flowed unobstructed between the kitchen and those in the front room. I'm Definitely coming back.
