"It was very stormy so we didn't get to enjoy the fire pit, but enjoyed the fireplace and the view of the storm upstairs."
"This rental was in very good condition! It had everything we needed and the views were beautiful! The hot tub was so nice and perfect. You could see the ocean from the porch and from while soaking in the hot tub. It couldn't have been more perfect! Thank you so much!"
"Very nice place to stay in every way!!!"
"Wonderful winter weekend! Warm, cozy, spaces for all!"
"The home was very comfortable for 10 people. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed our stay. The rental company had wonderful communication and was a pleasure to work with. "
"This home was perfect! Plenty of room and very close to the beach! Nice size kitchen and living room. The hot tub was great as well. Will definitely be coming back! "
"Had a great time celebrating out one year wedding anniversary."
"Prefer open floor plan. Beds and rooms not practical. Loved fireplace. "
"You lnow you enjoyed your stay when you are reluctant to leave a review because you are worried that you are letting out a secret and when you go to book next year it may get filled.
The house is really well maintained and clean! The hot tub crew was there at check out to prepare for the next guests and the hot tub was perfect clean and has a great view. The beds are comfortable the furnishings in the living room were great and the kitchen is amazing and well equipped. The photos of the place did not show just how nice and large the bedrooms are. Also for you VRBO folks I would rent from A 1 first they were great and VRBO glitched the payment and A 1 took care of it immediately. The whole package deal was amazing thanks A 1."
"We had a wonderful time at the Porthole. It was a Mothers Day getaway with our 2 daughters and their families. Perfect setting, close to the beach, great hot tub time and the back yard with the fire pit was the best! We loved it all!"
"Our stay was great!"
"we spent our fourth of july week at the porthole with 2 young families and had a great time! the views from the deck were amazing. the location was excellent and was 10 minutes from anywhere we wanted to go. the weather was perfect. my only watch out would be to keep the blinds down in the living room on sunny days as it can get really warm. "
"This was a wonderful home in an absolutely beatiful location. We had friends come in from Texas and this home generously provided enough space for all 7 of us. It was close to the beach although the walk is a little steep and getting onto the beach was a little difficult for the kids as it was rocky. We all loved the view from the windows and enjoyed the view from the outside deck. The house was centrally located so we were able to enjoy Newport and Depoe Bay with just a short drive. We would highly recommend this property and would rent it again."
"Good except for drive way and parking lot"
"Loved the views! The house was nice. We had beautiful weather while we were there. So most of our time was spent on the lower porch enjoying the view. We really didn't use the upstairs although the upstairs was very nice. Driveway was a little tricky. This property was very private despite the motel above it and house right next door. If the owners would put in a staircase from back yard to street below for an easier access to the beach. That would greatly improve this property. "
"Super fun beach weekend with friends. This place is cozy but well-organized for a small space. It's a little hard to find -- follow instructions closely! Bring your own firewood -- the fireplace is lovely. Thank you to A-1 rental for very clear and professional booking."
"Fun yearly trip with family. One bedroom has curtains that do not close, so no privacy! I received 4 emails from A-1 during my stay which I feel is a bit over kill."
"A Respite before starting a new Job-- I loved the Old Chair by the Window-- Very Comfortable, Fire Place is Exceptional -- Fire Each Night. Private and Peaceful. Thanks for the Clean Accommodations. "
"High praise for this charming seaside home. Best features are the location, easy access to the beach, awesome views, quiet neighborhood, well appointed with fine appliances and equipment, and the hot tub! Special consideration: although there are several beds, there are only three private spaces, hence "intimate," as in limited privacy in large numbers; I will be amazed if a guest finds this property on first try, quite a challenging labyrinth. The paved street access to the beach is steep but not difficult, and there are some challenging boulders between roads end and the beach. I highly recommend this location for most large families or small mixed company groups. Excellent value for the price, wow! I will definitely stay here again. "
"I cleaned the oven on arrival so we would not smoke up our food. Hot tub cover needs a lifter and bushes could be trimmed so we can see the ocean. House was clean. Would be nice to have food storage with covers or celephane provided. Also one serving of coffee would be nice. We had problem getting TV to have signal. Service man came in and set up with batteries in the remote, etc. Fire wood or logs would have been nice since there was a wood burning fire place only."
"The views were amazing, and the beach was close. We used the fireplace for two evenings before the sun came out for the remainder of our stay.
Kitchen is slightly small for a big group, but we worked it out just fine.
We all agreed we'd stay here again."
"Beach house was perfect. Definitely had enough beds to fit us all & cozy. Our view of the beach was beautiful. Definitely would stay here again. Thank you. "
"It was great! We enjoyed this house a lot. It fit all of us perfectly. And had great views and luckily great weather. It was a short walk to the beach, the walk back up the hill was tiring but we had 6 kids with us ages ranging from 5-10 and they hiked back up just fine. Also just a heads up the house says it has 2 1/2 baths. It has 1 bathroom with a taoilet and bathtub only, another bathroom with 1 toilet and a shower, and then a shower in the laundry room. We would have preferred 3 toilets but it still worked out great. Overall for the price it was a great spot, very clean, and the owners were super nice and friendly and answered all of our questions promptly. We would stay here again. "
"What a great place to stay. We loved everything about it. The property is well kept and offers ample space and lots of amenities. The location was great for our Oregon Coast adventures. Restaurants were fantastic (both in Lincoln City and all along the coastal towns) I think we ate clam chowder at every one we visited! All in all, just a fun, relaxing time in a beautiful part of our country. Thanks!"
"I sat on the deck and watched whales! Hot tub was great! The house had everything we needed. The two times we called the property management they answered right away and helped us! Beach and Tide pools were great. Love how secluded it felt with the trees and landscaping."
"We loved the charm of the house. While not directly on the beach, the ocean view was expansive, unobstructed and exhilarating. The rental had all of the necessary comforts including easily accessible internet, hot tubs, towels, refrigerator and microwave. The washer and dryer were bonuses. Clean home. "
"House was very clean and views were fantastic.
Beds were super comfortable and house was in a location that was very quiet.
I would highly recommend this house.
"As advertised beautiful views - easy walk to the beach - QUITE - nice rooms great amenities they do need a blind on the dining room window"
"The house was quite comfortable with plenty of room for 8 adults. Property managers were extremely helpful. The area is beautiful. And we got to experience the solar eclipse!"
"The property was a little difficult to find at first. The directions were very good and really helped. The view was great. It was our biggest reason for choosing Porthole. It was bigger than we needed for our party but I would definitely recommend it to anyone with a larger group or someone who just wants a great view of the ocean. "
"Great views of the coast from backyard and balcony. Clean house but the three bedrooms had weird configurations. Shouldve done one bedroom as a master with one bed instead of throwing twin beds in each room. Very quiet house. Only had one shower in the entire house. 2nd bathroom there was no water out of the shower and bathroom upstairs was only a bathtub. Overall, cute place, great views, and good location. "
"We were very happy with the accommodations, the location, and the beautiful view."
"Great Girls weekend....Only suggestion is the downstairs bedroom with the step-down add a large area rug for the cold winter months similar to the other bedroom downstairs other than that fabulous weekend.
Though only 3 cars are allowed to park at the property (Lincoln City Ordinance) was truly the only issue"
"Our group of friends had a great time staying at the Porthole Lincoln City beach cabin. We have celebrated there several times and hope to return again. The cabin is cozy, comfortable, and provides a most amazing view. This location helps create an environment which seems as if you are the only building around. The downstairs can get a little cold, particularly the one end room, but the upstairs remained warm and inviting. Overall a wonderful place to visit."
"The place was great. Clean and cozy. Wonderful view of the ocean. Great location. We will be back again and again."
"Our stay was great with the exception of it being very cold downstairs. I used to work for a heating company and notice there's a heat duct vent directly below the thermostat which I believe was causing the heater to turn off before the downstairs could get warm. There was an electric space heater in one of the downstairs bedrooms which helped. "
"My sisters, cousin & I had a great time at the Porthole. Neat, clean & comfortable. The ocean view was awesome. Loved the hot tub! Rained most of the time but we didn,t care. The walk to the beach was further than expected but still ok. Great home, Thank you, Beck Family"
"The Porthole was the perfect location for a girls' weekend getaway. The house was clean and within walking distance of the beach. The view is spectacular!
The property management was professional and quick to respond to my questions.
Drawbacks include a funky layout if you are traveling with multiple families or people who have trouble navigating stairs. Note that the kitchen, shower, hot tub, and two bedrooms are downstairs; the living room, one bedroom, deck, and a bathroom with a tub (no shower) are at ground level. Also, the parking area is really tight - smaller cars and/or a back-up camera are recommended.
I would definitely book again!"
"Despite the hot tub not working and not being able to get the back door open, we enjoyed the deck and views from the living room immensely. The beach is lovely, but a bit of a trek down to access. The sleeping arrangements are interesting with twin beds and queen beds in the same rooms. Lynn at the rental company was very accessible and friendly! "
"The home was a cozy getaway with breathtaking views, which equates to an amazing family experience. Thank you for everything!"
"Our entire group enjoyed every moment downtown at the house. It was stocked with everything we needed. Rooms were spacious and house was stocked."
"We enjoyed being so close to the ocean: the sights and sounds from Porthole kept us constantly aware, which is a good thing for us. We also enjoyed the easy access to the beach proper and we did lots of walking and exploring. We also appreciated our ability to walk to restaurants, e.g., Mo's and Clementines."
"8 of us ladies stayed the weekend at Porthole and it was probably the cleanest rental home I've ever seen. The view was spectacular and we had a lovely time. Please note that there are stairs down to the kitchen while the living area is upstairs. It would be a challenge to anyone who has trouble with stairs. I also feel there is plenty of parking for 4 cars rather than the strict 3 car rule. The mattresses weren't the most comfortable in my opinion, a higher quality of mattress may be worth the investment - but they weren't horrible. I'd bring an extra pillow if you like sleeping with more than only 1. But having 7 beds in the home is a big plus in my book - so we didn't have to share. The walk to the beach itself might also be a struggle for some - a steep hill and navigating down some rocks but all in all - it's a great home and Karen at A-1 was SO accommodating and helpful."
"House was as described. We liked the floor plan , the views and the kitchen. Beach access was an easy walk. Gas grill would have been a plus. We had a great time with our adult children, their spouses, and our grandchildren at the beach, Oregon Aquarium, surfing at Agate Beach. "
"The house was wonderful, the views were excellent. Having the kitchen downstairs was a little different."
"It was different having the kitchen and living area on 2 different floors. Kitchen window needs a shade for evening meals when the sun is shining. shrubbery needs to be trimmed by the hot tub so you can enjoy the view"
"There were 7 of us and we had a great time:) Weather was perfect and watching sunsets and walks on beach worked out great. Beach was not a long walk away and hot tub just made the stay that much nicer."
"we had a great time staying at the house . would love to come back and stay sometime again."
"A group of 8 crafting ladies go to the coast for a little retreat twice a year. This was the perfect house. Thought it sleeps 10 it was really comfortable for 8. There was room to set up a couple of tables for the scrapbookers and plenty of comfy seating for the knitters, readers, etc. We loved having the kitchen downstairs away from the living area as we were able to keep the snacking to a minimum. The house was very clean and homey and a few of us were really excited to have a hot tub. We loved it and if our group stays this size we will be back."
"We had an amazing time! We had the perfect weather on Saturday and the Beach entrance is just a short 2 Minute walk from the house. The view from the upstairs and downstairs windows are perfect.There were enough beds for 8 adult women with only 2 people actually having to share a queen. One of the bedrooms is a little odd with 3 beds in one room seperated by curtains. It was fine for us since it was just the gals, but could be odd if there were several couples and singles together. Not very much privacy. The bathrooms were modern. Showers a little small. The kitchen has been nicely updated and had all the utensils we needed for cooking breakfast and dinner. Minimal spices, no cooking oil or condiments of any kind. Overall the house was very clean and cozy. The location was great and we would definitely stay here again!"
"Cute house with amazing view and quick walk to the beach. Only negatives were the steep driveway and the showers were too small for an average adult to use comfortably but I would still consider renting again."
"This is a wonderful beach house overlooking the ocean. The view is outstanding! This house is very comfortable for a group of ten people. The kitchen is downstairs along with two bedrooms and the living room is upstairs along with one bedroom. There are bathrooms on both levels. The bushes were grown up by the hot tub and you couldn't see the ocean while sitting in it. (They would be easy to trim up) The only downfall we saw was that it is a little bit of a hike to get to the beach and you have to climb down a rocky pathway to get to down to the beach. "
"The view is amazing. The house is cute but the layout is odd. We knew that going into it, but we just were not fans of the kitchen being downstairs and the living room upstairs. There was a lot of up and down the stairs. The parking area/driveway is pretty challenging to get to - it's down a narrow road and an immediate "U-turn" to get to the driveway. "
"not a very detailed description of beach access"
"We had a wonderful stay. It was a bit different not having kitchen and living area on same level but super cozy living room "
"Wonderful view, accessibility to the beach,and very quiet. The home is well maintained with vintage charm. The downstairs stays on the cool side, the beds are ok, and the driveway requires a little maneuvering. This home would be a place I would stay again. "
"The house was clean and very cute. We enjoyed our stay. My only complaints would be that I had to fold the towels from the dryer left by the cleaning company. The pillows were pretty flat. I suggest they purchase new pillows for this unit, and the hot tub jets were not working properly. More like a soaking tub than a jetted tub. Other than that the place was great."
"Stayed with some girlfriends for a 31st birthday party! Loved the house the location and the service! Everything was well managed and communicated. Would definitely stay at the same location again and also use the property management again. Thank you!"
"The house was absolutely everything we were looking for. The hot tub was actually hot, much appreciated, and overlooked the ocean...PERFECT!!! Quick walk to the beach, really couldn't have asked for more. "
"Our family had a great time at this beach house. My husband and I took our two daughters and five grandchildren for a beach vacation. The layout of the bedrooms worked well. The location was good with day trips to Newport and Depot Bay. The access to the beach was pretty easy, just holding on to the little grandkids with the small loose rock to get to beach. Kitchen was well stocked with all that was needed to cook with. Washer and dryer worked well. Plenty of room to spread out in.
We have rented from A-1 for over 17 years. Our all time favorite is the RoadsEnd
House. It was already booked this time."
"We enjoyed the house & hot tub, it was very nice!!!"
"The house was just as I imagined! Incredible views, hot tub very relaxing and those ocean waves mesmerizing. We loved having a fire in the backyard. Weather fantastic. Great location so central to all we wanted to experience. Thank you again for providing highchair and playpen. The house easily accommodated 6 adults & 2 babies."
"Over all, it was satisfactory. The showeres where a little bit too small . Other than that everything was very nice. "
"This house would be good for a family with children. Grandparents may have problems going up and down stairs and walking down steep hill to the beach. Ocean view is partial.
Internet service was great, cell service wasn't but that is logical given the hill behind the house, just would plan differently knowing that if I needed to rely on cell service.
Hot tub was very clean and the house was well kept. Essentials for cooking were all there, don't forget to pack items for leftovers if you have them."
"We met from 4 different states for a girls weekend at this most amazing beach rental. Everything was in pristine condition, the hot tub was sparkling clean and ready for a soak, the beds were so comfortable, the views are incredible from this house from the back porch at the chiminea and tub and the upper deck as well, and the living room was perfect for playing games and catching up while lounging on cozy couches. We all want to bring our families back to this spot and will be back for sure. The town is adorable and we had a blast shopping and did the stunning Drift Creek Falls hike- so worth it!"
"fantastic view of the ocean. fireplaces inside and out. very comfortable beds."
"We loved watching the HUGE waves and though it rained almost the whole time we did get to walk the beach a couple mornings. Home is perfectly appointed and we used the fireplace a LOT because it was a bit chilly. We loved it."
"My family and I really enjoyed our stay. Great views and great memories. "
"The place was clean but dated. Towels were terrible....they are what I would use as rags to wash my car. Only one burner on the stove worked. The basement is impossible to heat. Overall the house was very overpriced for what it is. We were unable to get to the beach...access is limited to young agile kids, not something we could access, even out 11yrar old had a hard time.The upside is that the people I felt with were very nice and very helpful. I would use A1 Beach Rentals again."
"We had a fabulous time in Lincoln City. "
"My sister in laws and I loved staying at this rental! The views are just amazing and the hot tub was great."
"We loved every minute of our stay! We had all we needed and more than enough space for 10 people!! Thank you so much "
"Although the house sleeps 10, not really enough room for all 10 people to sit together comfortably. Awkward layout. Photographer made the house look larger than it is, and change in furniture in living room made it look like there were two living rooms
"Very nice vacation rental. We're satisfied."
"It has great views and short walk to the beach. The house was clean and ready to go when we got there."
"Loved our week at the Porthole - so relaxing & peaceful, great ocean views from our deck - watched the fishing boats come in several mornings, found so many treasures on the beach every morning - hope to be back next year!"
"45 minute wait for cleaning to be finished. Booked specifically for the hot tub which was a total disappointment...small, luke warm and 10% jet action. Downstairs bedrooms hear the hot tub going all night with windows closed so no hearing sounds of the ocean. "
"We enjoyed the beach and the view"
"other then the flying aunts that came out after we turn on the lights in the kitchen or hall way,it was great."
"I had a trip planned with my children and grandkids to Maui and had to cancel due to COVID. We decided to rent this home instead. The home was clean, cozy and the view is incredible! We had an amazing time. Everything was perfect except for the hot tub jets didn’t work well.Thank you for sharing your home with us! "
"Thus house was as described. It has beautiful views of the ocean with easy access to the beach. The house is as good as described and well equipped. We loved it!"
"The house was very cozy. Large upper deck, plenty of beds, nice little backyard with covered porch. Can't beat a hot tub with an ocean view! Close the shops in Lincoln City & Depoe Bay"
"My mother and sister and I stayed two nights..wish we’d booked a third!.enjoyed the fantastic view and fires in the beautiful stone fireplace..hot tubbing was relaxing as we listened to the ocean.house was exceptionally clean and well stocked.beds were cozy.will definitly book the porthole again!"
"Good Location and nice views "
"This house was a perfect for our weekend with our kids. The house was clean and comfortable, the kitchen was well-stocked, and there were plenty of beds. We used the hot tub a ton and we loved watching the waves, and checking out the moon and the stars. Beach access is really close, and we even had a whale sighting. We'd stay here again!"
"Wonderful stay. Had all we need, and it was quiet, yet within easy access of everything. Just a short walk to beach"
"This was our 2nd time renting this property. We have had a girls weekend both times. This is a perfect place for a getaway."
"We rented the Porthole for a week to celebrate my 75th birthday. The house is very comfortable and has plenty of room for a medium sized family. The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of towels and other linens. Washer and dryer are efficient and easy to use. Kitchen is well appointed. Highpoint is the wonderful view of the ocean. "
"It was absolutely breath taking. We loved it! The only issue was there were a bunch of cans outside on the back patio and by the hit tub that we picked up when we got there. Other than that it was clean and cozy!"
