Gleneden Beach is located on the Oregon Coast five miles south of Lincoln City.
About Rhonda Marks
We bought this home because we enjoyed Lincoln City, Depoe Bay and Newport and could never get enough. There is so much to do and many activities it is hard to get it all in in just one short week. We had looked at many properties and found most of the oceanfront homes had no easy beach access. We loved the ocean view and the easy beach/ocean access from this home... we are sure you will too.
Rhonda Marks purchased this House in 2015

I hope you enjoy our home as much as we do... there are many things to do and see. Almost every room in the house has an ocean view. I strive to insure you have a great vacation, when at our house. I hope we see you then !

Wonderful beach home
This home was complete with everything we needed to have a great time. From baby gates, high chairs, beach toys and kitchen gadgets, it had it all. Very clean & comfortable.
Great beach house, with only a few small issues.
My family and I stayed at the property for 5 nights, it was our first time using VRBO to book a vacation. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The location was great, just a short walking distance to the beach, and the neighborhood was quiet and friendly. The house was stocked well with everything we needed and even had a few extras we weren't expecting. Besides 1 thing, the house was very clean and ready for our stay. There was plenty of room and seating for my large family, and the beds were very comfortable.
There were a few issues however. We had constant issues with the wifi disconnecting. Unfortunately it would require me to completely disconnect the modem / router in order to fix. It happened about a dozen or more times a day. It wasn't a deal breaker, but was certainly annoying to deal.
In the downstairs bathroom we found mold and/or mildew on the ceiling and walls above the shower, as well as on the blinds. I didn't see anyone else mention this in previous reviews so I would guess that it was fairly new and the property owners were probably not aware.
There were a few minor safety concerns around the house, including a missing fire alarm downstairs, no locks on multiple windows around the house, and a missing screen door in the kitchen. The screen door wasn't a big concern, it just wasn't great for having small children running around.
Overall, I would say our stay was very positive besides a few small issues. If those small issues were addressed / fixed, then it would be the perfect beach house to vacation at.
The home was beautiful, and had everything we needed to make our vacation special. It was only a short walk to the beach which we all took full advantage of. The views from the deck, kitchen, dining room area and upstairs are magnificent. They had a lot of things to keep my grandkids busy. The hot tub was enjoyable after being out site seeing all day. We had an issue with one of the beds, and Gary, and Rhonda came right over and took care of it. Very nice people I would definitely recommend this home, and will definitely rent from them again. One supper neat bonus was that Gary, and Rhonda had crab traps with all the information on how and where to use them. We are all hooked. We caught 15 crabs ourselves in 3 days. Can't wait to go back and do that again. Only issue we had was the driveway was a bear. Otherwise looking forward to next time.
Close beach access, quiet neighborhood and comfortable home, we enjoyed our time there!
We loved our stay in this great vacation home! It was very comfortable for our group of six adults and a toddler. It was great to have a place that was clean and had plenty of room, and that also welcomed our small dog. We appreciated the well stock kitchen, the food in the welcome basket, and the supplies for the toddler. We like the Gleneden Beach area. It was nice to have easy access to the beach, and the restaurants in the area were great! We enjoyed take out from the Side Door Cafe, dinner at Tidal Rave, and coffee and treats at the Red Roof. We definitely hope to return to this place next year! The one improvement we’d recommend would be having a California king size bed in at least one of the downstairs bedrooms.
Family Is Everything
Our family is a typical busy, scattered group and when we are able to get together we consider ourselves so lucky. I have rented places all over the US through the years and we all work our schedules around so we can make the gathering happen.
This Thanksgiving was one of those. Ocean Dream could not have been more perfect for 6 adults and 2 little granddaughters. My brother and his wife stayed down the beach at another place but joined us for meals so it was a house full. But at no point were we crowded. Such a nice open living space to host a group.
The view is amazing and the pathway down to the beach was a short one. We were making the trip down 2 and three times a day. Morning, afternoon and night. We had the little girls on the hunt for agates and all came home with little bags full.
The house has everything you could possibly want or need. The Marks' have provided things you didn't even know you needed. My husband decided (since it was there and we don't have one) to smoke a turkey on the green egg on the deck. It turned out amazing and I can now see a green egg in our future.
The location was perfect as well. Easy to go up the coast to Lincoln City and Tillamook and down the coast to Depot Bay and Newport. Nice little day trips.
I would recommend this home to anyone wanting the perfect beach getaway.
