Overall excellent place to stay. Close to everything in Newport. Very short drive along jetty drive to park and walk over some sand dunes to the ocean. House was big, roomy and had nice views. Only negative was the sleeper sofa was too uncomfortable to sleep on.

About the neighborhood
We are on the south side of the Yaquina Bay Bridge where the bay waters transition to the ocean -- called the jetty. Our windows look out onto the water and we love watching the fishing boats, the seals splashing, lots of birds and other sea life....occasionally there are orcas as well.
