“Won't find a better view on the Oregon Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

We stayed here for two nights, 7/7 and 7/8 and really enjoyed our stay. It was the only place on our cross country journey where we stayed multiple nights. Joe and Dian have really gone to great lengths to ensure that their guests feel welcome and entertained at their home. From the fire pit overlooking the ocean in our suite, to the assortment of games, the mini-fridge, and of course the fabulous breakfasts each morning.

The breakfasts each morning were top notch and BIG. I struggled to finish my breakfast each day, and I'm not a light eater.

The location is great, as it's in the sleepy town of Depoe Bay, a short drive north from Newport and a short drive south from Lincoln City...two areas with plenty to do. They are also right next to a restaurant that I would recommend as well. Dian even made reservations for us two weeks before we arrived...requesting a special window seat at the restaurant.

What a private and amazing retreat that Dian and Joe have completed, they enjoy sharing their paradise with others and their love shines through in the details. I have not stayed at many b&b's because I like my privacy my husband and I frequent boutique hotels. But on this trip with my Mom, we decide to try a couple of b&bs. Joe and Dian have created a private oasis for their guests that offer complete privacy, beauty, magnificent ocean views and little touches that show her thoughtfulness and workmanship that shows Joe's perfectionism. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome and accommodate. Mom and I had a beautiful time, only wish we could have stayed longer than 2 nights. I would love to to bring my husband back since it would also offer an abundance of romance with the ocean views, deck with firepit, and little gas stove inside to heat with. Comfortable beds, beatifully done shower(we stayed in the Rose Room) lovely antiques. Thanks you again Joe and Dian, I hope to see you again soon.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with either room (we viewed the other while we were there). The other room...

My daughter and I stayed at Whales Rendezvous recently. We came to Oregon to visit my great aunt and needed a few nights to relax after a particularly stressful year. We came to the right place for that! Joe and Dian have gone the extra mile to ensure a restful, peaceful time for their guests. From the moment we arrived and checked in we were drawn to Joe and Diane. They just make you feel at home from the beginning!
When we descended the stairway to our unit, we were blown away! Who would have thought all that is hidden behind a little unassuming storefront on Hwy 101! Incredible! We did go out for a few hours one day but the rest of the time was spent relaxing in front of the firepit on the deck or in the wing back chairs in front of the window! We ordered Thai food from the local restaurant and ate it on the deck the first night. Wonderful! Highly recommend the restaurant! (sorry, don't remember the name)
They have included everything one could ask for down to the s'mores makings. Teas, chocolate, granola bars, coffee, sodas, down to videos and wonderful reading material!
Joe's expert workmanship in restoring this beautiful hide-a-way is amazing as are Dian's decorating skills. We just marveled at the detail in everything. It's so, so beautiful! And pristine! So fresh and clean! Their use of vintage pieces particularly interested me. The fridge and microwave in oak armoire! Sinks set into antique dressers. So fun! A window in the shower wall so you can watch the ocean waves! :)
Joe and Dian became family on our trip and we hope to see them again in the near future!
PS Did I say we saw whales??? :)

We were delighted in every aspect! We kept coming back from touring because we found no place that was more fun and beautiful than where we were staying! We had beautiful views of waves, skies, rocks and beach. We got to see the endangered stellar sea lions on the buoy out our window. The whales were in the area every day we were there. The food was excellent. Every beauty and comfort had been attended to. And, we ended up feeling like Joe and Dian are family. This place will indeed ruin you for anyplace else!

Room Tip: Can't go wrong with either room! We stayed on in the rose room, but saw both!

It’s easy to drive by the small, unassuming street front of Whales Rendezvous B&B but you’d be missing one of Oregon’s loveliest vacation spots. What hides behind this modest appearing home is truly a gem and one not to be missed. We stayed in the Sea Rose Suite with its large, private deck and expansive ocean views. We were so impressed with the suite as we entered through our private outside door, that I didn’t immediately notice the table with a rose, greeting card and balloon wishing me a Happy Birthday! It was a thoughtful gift from two generous and sincerely good people and we thank you Joe and Dian for making this one of our favorite places to visit. As hosts they have put so much love and attention into every detail of the suite that we continued to marvel at something new each day. It’s the little things that make a difference and nothing has been overlooked. A basket of treats, plates and utensils, coffee, tea, bottled water, even catsup and mustard for those hamburgers and hotdogs grilled outdoors on your own private deck and, of course, graham crackers, chocolate bars and marshmallows for S’mores. Dian’s beautifully decorated rooms and Joe’s craftsmanship are everywhere to be admired. Antiques have been lovingly restored, wall hangings chosen to enhance every space, expertly tiled floors and a huge two-person shower with double-rain showerheads. The inclement weather didn’t spoil anything as we sat in comfortable chairs facing the ocean, fire warming us, as we watched the ocean waves crash against the rocks below. There is a large assortment of DVDs in the suite and Wi-Fi is available. Floodlights highlight the nighttime views of the ocean … another thoughtful addition to a wonderful stay.
