Buy some linen and kill the flies
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2016
The house has a great location with good access to the bay and a fantastic view. The floor plan of the home is good with large private bedrooms and a comfortable primary living area. That being said...the sheets are low grade as are the pillows. They also hold the odor of the previous user which we all agreed was pretty gross. The windows are missing screens in a couple of location and the house had numerous flies when we arrived. I would recommend the house to a friend but tell them to bring their own bedding and be prepared to do battle with the flies.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC
Gosh, we are open 7 days a week for our guests and if we had known about these issues we would have responded right away. We will review the linens and pillows today, and the flies we hadn't heard of so not sure what that's about, but next time please let us know your grievances so that we can help out. If we don't know about it while you are here we can't react and fix the problems.

Lovely stay on the bay
A guest from Huron, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2016
We recently spent 2 nights at Shellhaven property. We felt that the property was accurately described and we were pleased. If you are looking for easy beach access or sweeping ocean views, this is not your place however. What it does offer is bay watching ( seals and fishing boats ) and lots of opportunities for a lovely fire on a deck with a view.

First time in Waldport
A guest from Olympia, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2016
Overall, very good. From the photos, I didn't expect that there would be no stairs down to the beach. My parents, who are seniors, were with us on the trip and had a tough time navigating the steep ramp, but other than that, it was good.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC
Sorry if you were unhappy, we try to be so transparent and advertise everything, the picture descriptions does say there is a wooden plank walkway to the beach. We hope you will come back again.

Fun times in Waldport
Bradley C. from Portland, Oregon recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2016
We had an enjoyable time with our grandchildren at the coast. Our first time staying on the bay, we never got tired of looking at the scenery that was offered. The grandkids liked running up and down the beach but the swimming pool was their favorite time of all. It would be helpful if Bayshore Rentals would list which homes have swimming pool access. We plan on coming back next summer. See you then.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC
All the Bayshore homes allow the pool. Any time you see a home that says "Bayshore neighborhood" the pool pass is included. Also, GG's allows the pool access as the owner has properties in Bayshore. Glad you had a great time, see you next year.

Our home by the bay!
Flint B. from Kaysville, UT recommends this property.
Stayed for 11 days in July, 2016
LOVED IT! This place is the great and bayshores is the best rental agency to deal with. We have stayed in this home twice the home is clean and the location is awesome! It is magical to look out across the bay at night as the lights shine on the water. My kids caught fish right from the back deck and crabbed off their paddle boards in the water caught jelly fish we dug up clams at low tied and ate them for dinner what an awesome place. We always deal with Lori at Bay shores and she is friendly and helpfull.

Love the Bay View from this Comfortable Home!
Barbara A. from Milwaukie, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in July, 2016
Loved this house and the location. House is clean and very comfortable. Appreciated the two nice sized bedrooms and bathrooms. Good floor plan for seniors and anyone with mobility problems.We like the serene view of Alsea Bay and the bridge from inside the house, and from the nice deck. Lots of bird activity including a blue heron just a few feet from shore. We used to own a house in the area and now enjoy returning for maintenance-free getaways. It is always a good experience renting from Bayshore. I prefer smaller agencies where staff is familiar with all the properties and is always available for any unexpected issues that might arise.

A Relaxing Get-Away
Dana B. from Coos Bay, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2016
It was a wonderful, relaxing 3 days with my life-long friend.The location was surprisingly quiet given the fact there are homes on both sides.The view of the bay was breathtaking!The floor plan was open and inviting with Bay views from the living room,dining,kitchen and master bedroom. We spent a lot of time on the deck and appreciated the wind blocking panels.The staff was prompt in getting a couple of minor matters resolved. Overall it was very clean-but some of the mini blinds,baseboards and carpet needed attention...giving housekeeping a B+ rating from us. The beds are on the soft side but comfortable. Overall it was very nice,well priced, and we would return.

RAINNING SPRING BREAK
A guest from Gresham, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in March, 2016
there was ping pong table but no balls. Lots of board games, dominos game, magazine but no deck of cards. Good location, good view to the bay area. House was clean, bedrooms can use new mattress. It's kind of old and springy. Overall it was good. Would considering to comeback.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC
Sorry about the balls. We have a lot of them at the office so next time please come by or call us. I try to say on these reviews the one huge positive about renting from us is that we are on call 24/7 and our office is physically located at the entrance to Bayshore Estates, locally situated to most of our homes. Please don't hesitate to come by or call us if you need anything during your stay.

This is our 2nd stay at Shell Haven. We spent Thanksgiving with our kids at this wonderful location and we all enjoyed it immensely. The view is breath taking and the crabbing is always fun and successful! We enjoyed lots of evening fires. The home is spacious and well stocked with everything you need! The new tv is great - was nice for the Civil War! The house was spotlessly clean and the staff at Bayshore is always friendly and a pleasure to work with. We are already looking forward to booking our next stay!!

Excellent location and the bay wildlife is amazing! For a few days, we had a couple of very playful seals right out the back of the house, lots of fun to watch them play. On a number of days, we saw a couple of blue herons and more than a dozen white egrets, along with all the sea gulls.

We love this house. I thought the beds were fine. I agree that the couch and chair are a little jaded, but come on, it's a rental! House is stocked - only things missing - plastic containers and zip lock bags, so bring your own. Office staff, specifically Lori, are outstanding and helpful. We had one problem and she resolved it as quickly as possible (septic tank overflow alarm went off). Wonderful view of the bay and bridge. Lots of warm quilts and bedspreads. Linens were fine.

Wonderful Location!
Tom R. from Grand Haven, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 10 days in August, 2015
This lovely 2 bed/2 bath more than met our expectations. From the street it looks nice but once you step inside the view is impressive. The rooms large and comfortable with a great kitchen. Alsea Bay and bridge were stunning. We crabbed and clammed from our beach, collected agates, watched the seals and birds, walked to the ocean and were ready to move to Waldport. This community is laid back and less touristy than Newport and Yachats but accessible to all the wonderful sites this Oregon coastal area has to offer. We loved having a place to call home, cook and relax. We travel often and like to rent homes for longer stays and this was one of the best. There were just the two of us but is suitable for two couples or a small family. We kayaked with the harbor seals, rode horses on the beach, ate at Lazy Days Café, whale watched, hiked, photographed everything and rented crabbing gear at the Crab Shack (they cook your crab). It was hard to leave but will be back next year.

Flat top electric stove needs flat bottom pans. Skillets were warped, nearly unusable. Paid $45 cleaning fee but had to unload dishwasher on arrival. Also had to start a load of towels before leaving and run dishwasher and take out our own trash. Nice location but beds were so so. Windows very foggy & dirty, ruined the nice view.

We love the location of this rental property because we enjoy watching the boats and people in the bay. The bridge is gorgeous and we love to go crabbing and salmon fishing. The vacation rental management staff are wonderful and very helpful. The staff are always professional and and emit the feeling that their goal is to make your vacation the best it can be.The rooms at Shell Haven are very spacious and the bathrooms are always very clean, kudos to the housekeeper. The couch and recliner are old and dirty so I cover them up with a sheets. We have stayed at Shell Haven approximately 4-5 years and always look forward to coming back because of the location. The mattress's and bedding are very, very old and uncomfortable so I bring all our own bedding, but because of the condition of the mattress's we keep saying next time we will look for a different property to rent but then Shell Haven's location can't be beat.I an neutral on recommending or not recommending this property to a friend.

Amazing Rental-Well worth the trip
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014
My family had an excellent time in this well stocked vacation home. We had a total of 6 people, including one infant, who were able to comfortably fit into this home. Our teenagers were very happy with the beach access which was just steps out the backdoor and I was comfortable with the slow moving water that they were completely safe and easily supervised. The view was amazing! The fire pit was used each night with enthusiasm. There is nothing negative that I can say about this home. We will return and be very comfortable once again when we do! This home was: well stocked with everything you will need, had rooms much larger than the pictures depict, very centrally located to the beach and downtown (including a grocery store), was very quiet, and was well maintained by the staff.

Actually we had a wonderful time in Waldport and Shell Haven. The only thing that wasn't great was the beds. The mattress in the master was so hard we did not sleep at all. Next we tried the guest room, and though a little softer still not a good sleep. Other than that, the house was clean and things were in working order. We would like to find another rental with a great view and better beds. Thanks so much to property managers for there great help and service.

A guest from LEBANON, Oregon recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2013
We always enjoy our stay at Shellhaven because of the beautiful location. The bay is always full of activity during the day and quiet and serene in the evening. I have made suggests in my past reviews and I have read past reviews where other vacationers suggest things like; need of games, need of window screens (only 2 in the whole house), uncomfortable dated mattresses & bedding, and the glass seal broken on the patio door; and the review requests were answered with these items provided, replaced and fixed, and the problems still exist. The master mattress was not replaced but an inexpensive egg-crate foam was placed on top and the guests room mattress was replace with a filthy dirty, (stains and hair and dirt) mattress. In over 3-4 years the patio door glass has not been replaced.The layout of this house is ideal for privacy for 2 couples, with bedrooms on opposite ends and has a wonderful deck, with wind block, to enjoy the bay.Bayshore Rental employees are very professional and make the rental process very smooth. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and a pleasure to do business with.

Shellhaven Stay
A guest from Pleasant Hill, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013
Great house. Liked the layout, very clean,right on the water. Beautiful view of the bay and bridge. Just a block walk to the oceanside beach. Management is always super (we are longtime renters at Bayshore.) Only problem was the beds. Very uncomfortable. Management said they would talk with the owner about replacing them.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Bayshore Rentals LLC
The beds have been reaplaced by the owner, we've had similar suggestions. Thank you, hope you will return.

Shell Haven on Alsea Bay
A guest from Eugene, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013
We have been renting this home for several years We love its location and the beautiful view of the bay and bridge. The two large bedrooms and bathrooms enable us to have friends and family visit during our weeklong stays We fake advantage of clamming during low tides and long walks on the beach. We have wonderful memories saved up over the years .

Anniversary Retreat
Becky B. from Sutherlin, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in November, 2012
My husband and I rented this home for our anniversary get-away. It was wonderfully located within feet from the bay and is just accross the bridge from Waldport. The home was clean, well laid out, big bedrooms, a great pellet stove and a stocked kitchen. We enjoyed our stay and will definately come back again. If I had to find one thing bad to say it would be that the master bed was a little hard for our taste...otherwise it is the perfect get-away home. Thank you!

Outstanding View, Perfect Location, Terrible Beds....
JULIE W. from LEBANAON, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2012
We have rented Shellhaven a few times now. The location view is beautiful looking across the bay. The house is always clean and ready for us. I have two concerns with the rental, first - the advertising states there is a pellet stove , which it has, but there have never been any pellets supplies on any of our stays. I feel if Shellhaven is advertised as having a pellet stove, then the pellets should be provided. Second - the mattresses are horrible, they are ancient and hard as a rock with very dated, old bedding. We have to bring our own bedding and mattress toppers, which we should not have to bring to be comfortable. Again, the home is nice and comfortable.... the view is outstanding.... the location perfect... but with the lack of pellets, dated bedding and poor mattresses, I don't know if we will rent Shellhaven again.

Just what we needed:)
Sarah K. from Spokane Valley, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2012
We planned our trip very last miniute but this rental company and this house worked out perfectly for us! We had a blast! The price was just right for us also. The beds were a little hard and the floors were out of date but for the price it was great, clean, and cozy. The pellet stove was the best, there is a great porch along the back of thr house and a fire pit. The beach part wasnt a sandy beach it was very rocky! But beautiful none the less! The tvs are tiny and old but thats not what we went to the coast for. There is crabbing right out ur door! We did rent a boat and had a blast. We found out the last day the house has some crabbing rings on the side of the house.... We did pay to rent some.. Overall tons to do around here and this house and location was great, we loved it and will be back for sure!

Stayed for 1 days in July, 2011
Okay, so I booked Amanda's cottage for 7/24-7/27. Buuuuuttttt, I arrived on the Saturday I was expecting to come in on--which was 7/23. So when I get here, after the office was closed, and couldn't find my key, I called the number on the door. A very friendly gentleman was appoligetic and rushed down. When he got there, he said they didn't have me coming in until the next day. When I checked my reservation (and a calendar to see what the date was) they were so right and I was SOOO wrong. But they found Shell Haven for me, my husband and 3 boys to stay in for the night until my house would be ready. Shell Haven was a very nice house, great set up and well stocked. Of course the boys had to look all around and check out every closet and cupboard even though we were just sleeping there for the night. Bed was good and it has a stair case to the beach. I would take either house when I come back, because we will be coming back!

Shell Haven is located on Alsea Bay and has great views across the bay to the bridge. It is a short walk from the ocean-side beach. We can't think of any way in which the house could be better maintained or equipped. The furnishings are modern and very nice indeed.Overall, Shell Haven is about the best home we have ever rented and our only regret is that we only had a few days to spend. We definitely intend to come back when we have more time.

The home was fine and staff was helpful - the cieling in the living room has water damage that has been in need of repair for a couple of years - i have stayed there several times and think this should be fixed, the knives are all dull and there should be a shell craker for crabs since this is the oregon coast. also you are competing with motels on the coast - they all supply plenty of toilet paper - i think 2 rolls per bathroom is expected and would appreciate if paper products and aluminum foil were included as it is inconvient to arrive and then have to go get these itemsotherwise we had a great time and will be back again

The house was great the only problem was the back sliding door was broken so we had a very hard time going in and out to the deck to enjoy the great weather. That is my only complaint everything else was awesome!
