About the property

Two Bedroom, Two Full Bath Ocean View House With Close Beach Access

We are centrally located to visit Yachats and Newport. Come visit the beach and rejuvenate!!! Ocean views, a fireplace insert, and our Hot Tub with rainbow LED lights provide a truly relaxing beach getaway. We have close beach access to one of the best sandy beaches for beachcombing.

The Dancing Seahorse is owned by two artists who bought the house in 2012 and spent 2 1/2 years remodeling the house with a unique artistic flair. You will see examples of their art and other local art throughout the house. The home has hardwood and ceramic tile flooring with vaulted ceilings, cedar walls and pine wainscotting throughout. As soon as you walk thru the door into the living room of the home your shoulders will feel lighter. We provide an extremely comprehensive cable package with HBO and Showtime including On Demand for those evenings when it feels so good to just kick back and be entertained. There is a 48'' HDTV with DVD player in the living room . This room also has a full size sleeper sofa that will comfortably sleep two, a loveseat, and a recliner. The house length ocean view deck and back yard are accessible from this room. The dining room is adjacent to the living room with a table that comfortably seats four. The dining room opens into the newly remodeled kitchen with stainless steel appliances including a refrigerator with water and ice maker in the door. The kitchen also has a 5 burner stove with convection oven and a microwave.

The kitchen is fully equipped with normal small appliances including a cusinart ice cream maker. The ocean view master bedroom has a queen pillowtop bed, large walk in closet, office area with a plug in for a laptop, 37 ' flat screen HDTV with blue ray dvd player, and also opens onto the deck conveniently close to the ocean view hot tub. The ocean view second bedroom also has a queen bed . The large master bedroom bathroom has a bathtub/shower combination. The second bathroom has a walk in shower. And finally, there is a washer and dryer in the garage. The usable garage space is not large enough to park a car however it is great place to store your gear while you are staying at our little piece of paradise.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of the Dancing Seahorse is the expansive ocean view deck with a picnic table. The hot tub is privacy screened. There is also a small ocean view deck in the front yard with a beautiful rock garden.

The back yard is securely fenced for your pets. Our pet guests have enjoyed this feature.

The Dancing Seahorse is conveniently close to our first venture into the vacation rental business...The Moonstruck Mermaid...VRBO listing number 286081. Please do check out our reviews at The Moonstruck Mermaid; they speak to the experience we like to offer our guests.

Nicely decorated and very clean home. Short and easy walk to the ocean. Very well equipped kitchen

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Dancing Seahorse and would love to return. Very comfortable and well equipped home with expert house cleaners.

Only problems we had included the master bathroom door which would not close and the shower/bath controls worked so hard, I could not turn the water on.

All in all a lovely place to enjoy the beautiful Oregon coast.

Exelent As advertised!

  • 5 of 5

Was everything we expected, a little dirty, but to be expected with all the sand I guess. It was perfect for my family's dogs with the fully fenced yard. We enjoyed the hottub and the beach access was perfect right across the street. We had a wonderful time.

Lovely, peaceful well maintained

  • 4 of 5

Just had our second stay at "The Dancing Seahorse" cottage which we had been looking forward to since we drove away last year. It's ideal for a restful holiday with a host of things to do if you are not there for indolence. Any number of beaches and State parks to roam and visit. Some simple but delightful shopping destinations in Waldport and plenty of touristy type places in Newport. Not only do I recommend it, my friends may be tired of hearing about it.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

You can tell a lot of care has gone into the care of this home! It was perfect for our getaway. We had an enclosed area for our dogs, enjoyed the Hot tub even in the rain and enjoyed a warm cozy fire in the wood stove, the beach was not far for us to take our dogs to walk and we could watch the waves from the house.

Great location for kids and adults alike!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great house to rent with my parents and two young sons (3 and 6) for a few days during spring break. We had a gorgeous weekend at the coast and it was awesome to be able to open the door to deck and tell the kids to go play outside with their bubbles and soccer ball in a very dry, non soggy yard. The house is all one level which made it easy for my mom, who had knee surgery, to walk around. The beach access is easy and a block and a half away. The house is located perfectly between Yachats and Newport. Both were quick trips away for hiking at Cape P and running out for groceries. The house is equipped with everything you could need, especially TV/stereo/video. Just two notes regarding the cleanliness, which is the reason I took away one star due a cleaning fee that seemed a bit high for how it was when we arrived. We didn’t come with any pets, but as the house allows them (the owners were great with their very kind instructions to pet owners), I did have to pick up 7 piles of doggie #2s for my kids to play in the yard (I chalk this up to irresponsible dog owners and not the owners of the home) and there was pet hair under and on a bit of the sofas but luckily no one in our family is allergic. Two of the heaters rattled as well when they turned on but luckily we didn’t need them to sleep most nights.

We would stay here again and appreciate the owners quick responses to our feedback and inquiries. Bring a bottle of wine (or three) and enjoy this wonderful house in Waldport!
