About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths + (convertable bed) (Sleeps 6)



This condominium is in: 'Thundering Shores'

The name of this beautiful Condo is: 'Whaler's Rest'


We even provide umbrellas

If you are looking for a beautiful condominium that is directly on the oceanfront, with beautiful surroundings and you do NOT need the extra amenities such as a pool or a hot tub. Why pay extra for them if you don't use them?



We do have gift certificates available for purchase for special occasions.

Peaceful with magnificent views, mesmerizing sunsets, the beautiful moon and watching the whales

that are extremely close in.

All of this plus a beautiful condominium as an additional bonus.

The only sounds you can hear are the crashing waves and the sounds of sea life. Many times you can hear the whales spouting.

This beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bath condominium sleeps 6. It has all the features of the high end properties except for the lack of the pool & hot tub.

The property is beautifully maintained and is a delight to walk the grounds.

This condo will not disappoint anyone lucky enough to secure a retental date. Thank you CB and John for making us feel welcome . The panoramic view from the living area is incredible. One the best equipped vaction rentals I've experienced clean, comfortable and tasteful. Loved experiencing Depoe Bay and areas North and South lots of great scenic opportunities, beaches , entertainment, activities, shopping , amenitiesand dining venues either in Depoe Bay, Lincoln City or Newport without having to drive great distances The ocean is the main attraction and you have a front row seat at Whalers Rest . We returned back to our snow covered locale rejuvenated and well rested.

Already talking of returning next Fall. Thanks C B for guiding us to this rental.

The Perfect Pacific Coast Get-a-way.

  • 5 of 5

This condo has everything you'd want for a trip to the coast. It's location is at the hub of coastal activities including State Parks, hiking, surfing, sight seeing, shopping, eating, whale watching, fishing, historical sites, artist galleries, and enjoyment of the ocean's power, sounds, sea breeze and restfulness. We have traveled to the coast for over 50 years and thoroughly enjoyed this trip. The owner has filled the condo with everything you'd every need. It's very comfortable, everything is clean and spotless, parking is convenient and the ocean is filled with whales spouting and fishing boats pulling large fish out of the waters. The surf boils and churns right outside your front living room windows, something we've never experienced before. We left thinking we should have scheduled more time for this stay. There is so much to do and so many opportunities for enjoying the Coast around you when you are here. Pick this home away from home and you'll love your time at the Coast.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo! It's in a small complex that is beautifully landscaped and extremely peaceful, quiet and private. Right on the water, the ocean is right in front of you. Pretty much protected from the elements. Watched whales spout and sea lions pass by every day. Perfect place to go to unwind and rest. It's our place to rejuvenate. The saying is true - "we come to the sea to breathe" and we can actually do that here. We will definitely be back!

  • 5 of 5

i am originally from Oregon and my Husband and In-Laws are from Brooklyn, NY. I wanted to show them how beautiful Oregon was and this was definitely the place to do it! Being that we live in Las Behas now, a break from those very high temperatures was so very nice. In addition to that, waking up and sitting out back with a fresh cup of coffee and some whales wasn't too shabby either! We didn't want for a thing! We stayed for a week and when we left I'll be honest, there was some sadness. Do not pass this one up! An absolute pleasure. Also, C.B. Is fantastic. I was so comfortable through the whole process beginning to end. I look forward to staying again in the future! Thank you C.B.! Warmest Regards, Allison & Paul

Our Yearly Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year at Thundering Shores in Depoe Bay. We can't say enough good things about this condo. Clean, comfortable, quiet and peaceful. Close to Newport and Lincoln City. Walk to town or just sit by the window and watch for those whales. We did a lot of that! Managers CB and John are extremely accommodating. Always available and made our planning and reservations Easy-Breezy. We hope to be back again next year. Love it, love it!!!!!!

Our visit in August...

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed for a week last August. Great spot at a good price. CB and John were such great advisors and were very responsive and provided such great activities for our kids too. We have nothing but fond memories of our stay and my wife did not want to leave! I will miss BBQ'ing at night and hearing the whales blow their spouts right behind me in the ocean. That was unreal for a prairie guy like me! Someday soon we will return. :-)
