The draw of this property is its grounds and access to a underutilized beach. That said it is conveniently located between Newport and Florence. This location makes allows for easy access to the numerous natural wonders of the central coast of Oregon. Be advised that a long set of stairs must be navigated to access the gatehouse and beach. I’m 75 years old unreasonably good shape and had no difficulty dealing with the stairs. I would definitely stay here again.

Lovely 1-room space up two full flights of stairs. Spacious deck with beautiful view. Spacious bathroom however no hooks or towel bars (why not?). Kitchen essentials are there. Only a tiny tiny crank window opens in the room (there is a window on the storm door but no screen) so fresh air is limited. The bed was firm and comfortable. There is a tremendous amount of storage (bins and shelves) but no place to hang your clothing other than a few wall hooks by the front door). Travel to Yachats is scenic but could be a bit intimidating after dark trying to find the entrance. The grounds are lovely but the beach access is for the young and athletic only: a series of steep winding paths and stairs that are more like ladders (it is posted to use at your own risk) and it was so easy to drive to a nearby public beach instead. No cell phone service so bring a computer/tablet if you want to sign on to WiFi. The amenities listed an “Alexa” device but it was not there.

Super cute, bright and joyful studio apartment. The decor, the deck and the view was just what we had hoped for. Once the curtains were closed, the outside lights were not bothersome. Unfortunately, the stairs down to the beach were unusable and the bed was hard and not super comfortable.

This is the upstairs unit in the first building when you arrive.

This unit was exactly what I needed. I stayed here by myself to get some "me" time and it was exactly what I expected. I sat in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine watching a great movie, I relaxed on the chaise with an awesome book, and I sat out in the yard and watched the sun disappear behind the ocean. The unit is very clean, it's stocked with a perfect number of dishes, and beach towels are provided.

The Oregon House is a super quiet spot, at least during the week. I was there from Sunday to Wednesday. I traveled back and forth from downtown Florence and Yachats and took advantage of the trails and viewpoints in between, including the Sea Lion Caves.

If you are looking for a quiet, less touristy vacation with lots of hiking options and great beach spots, this is a perfect choice!

I stayed at a different unit a few years ago and had an amazing experience. Unfortunately, this particular unit sits high and it's near the highway. The tall shrubs have been cut down low so you get some highway lights and sound, not terrible but it was unexpected. Worse, there is so much ambient light from two very bright lights outside which is disappointing since you cannot see the ocean in the evening and light streams in all night from the front door directly to the bed.

The location is perfect, the beach is wonderful although when I got there the beach access was restricted and then "at your own risk." both times I've been here (winter) the stairs to the beach have been wrecked by storms and not repaired, I get it, it's a violent coast but I come for the beach and don't want to drive to beach access once I'm there. This information should be very clear in the advertisement when booking. I'm grateful to have had beach access for the second half of my week.

There are limited utensils and glassware, and zero salt and pepper etc, it would be great to have a hotplate or stovetop.

Finally... there are many "do this don't do that" signs everywhere and not one welcoming me. It's kind of a bummer.

It's a mixed bag, on one hand it's a beautiful part of the coast and the tide was super low exposing so much fantastic sea life -but there seems to be no warmth or love that goes into this place. I want to love the Oregon House but somehow it's a challenge.
Manager response:
Hi, Venae! Your feedback is valuable and appreciated. We have removed the notes and provided further information regarding the beach access since stairs are not yet repaired. Thank you!

We stayed here at the end of Jan 2021 and had a very nice time. The ocean view was fantastic and the bed was very comfortable. Id like to suggest just a few thing for the rental. Since it doesn't have a dishwasher, supply a drying rack. Also, it would be very handy if you had a single or double burner electric hot plate, since there is not a cooking range.
Debra B. Jan 2021
Loved the gas fireplace. The heating system was limited, but there was a nice space heater that helped. Everything was clean and well maintained. One of the light bulbs in the living room ceiling lights was out so I left a note for housekeeping. Bear in mind that using your cell phone for phone calls is not feasible as well as some texting. There is a phone in the residence that is usable, but you have to go into Yachats to get texts as well as voice mail messages on your phone. But I've stayed here before and expected that. I plan to return to Oregon House in mid-February for yet another stay. P. S. The stairs down to the beach were washed away during the last storm and it sounds like there's no plans to rebuild them until this spring.
Amber R. Jan 2021
We loved the coziness of the studio and the view of the ocean. However the stairs we apparently broken so we couldn’t access the beach. The kitchen in the rental was also very limited. Silverware was sparse, and there weren’t any spices/salt and pepper for use. I realize this wasn’t a full kitchen but we were able to do plenty of cooking with the toaster oven and microwave. Overall, it was a wonderful stay! We will be back!!
Manager response:
Thank you for choosing our home, Amber! We are happy to hear you had a good time. Regrettably, the stairs are broken and we have added information about this to our listing and guest emails to avoid any frustrations. We will check that there is enough silverware for our guests to use. We look forward to hosting you again!

Great house and great location.
Dakota G. Dec 2020
Great place to stay! We have stayed at a few of the houses at Oregon house and this was our favorite. Very cozy for a couple and love the fireplace.
One thing I will note - take a quick shower the water gets lukewarm pretty fast :)
Darcey H. Dec 2020
We've stayed at Oregon House property twice. Both times were very comfortable, very clean and well appointed. This unit is quite spacious with multiple cozy seating areas for relaxing, napping and reading. The microwave, toaster oven, electric kettle, waffle maker and coffee pot were sufficient for us to make simple meal to enjoy on the deck or in the picnic area.

The town of Yachats is approx 15 min drive from the location so I would plan to bring some provisions and avoid the winding, dark drive back from town after dinner. Or pick up some seafood at Luna Sea to bring back.

Lying in bed listening to the ocean crash was wonderful. This is the perfect spot for a short stay.
Joyce J. Sep 2020
Location, location, location... studio was well-furnished and clean. Wifi and streaming TV were exceptional, as this location is fairly remote for cell signals. It is the perfect getaway spot for two. Be aware that there are stairs up to second level which is the studio. Worth it all is the incredible view of the pristine beach from the upper deck. Only suggestion is to provide a couple of comfy outdoor chairs for the deck so you can soak it all in!
Brian T. Aug 2020
The gate house apartment was perfect for our long weekend away. We very much enjoyed the well maintained apartment and the beautiful grounds with beach access.
Julie W. Jul 2020
So much to love here!! Cottage 1A was perfection! Beautifully chic decor, high vaulted ceiling, just the right size kitchen and great ltV set up for after our days on the beach! Sat out on the perfect deck overlooking the ocean sipping rose’ and shucking our own crab from the local fish market minutes away. Easy enough access to beach with some physical exertion but not too extreme. Great beach to walk in either direction...much to enjoy and relax. Perfectly groomed property all around.
Jane R. Jul 2020
We loved our stay at this location! It was very secluded and romantic with private beach access, yet still close enough to the town of Yachats to be able to easily enjoy the local scene. The studio was large and comfortable, and we loved the view from the deck!
Richele K. Jul 2020
We loved our stay at the Ocean House (Unit #1A). Not only was it spotless, but it has such nice amenities—great views of the ocean through the trees, large sunny deck, gas fireplace, large flatscreen TV. The WiFi worked just fine for us, we could easily email, upload and download, stream movies and shows. The kitchen has everything but a stovetop, but we made due with the toaster oven and microwave. The bathroom is clean and large, with a roomy shower and plenty of hot water. The path down to the beach is steep and requires good balance and agility, but once you are on the beach it is extremely tranquil and relatively private! Cozy, inviting decor! Great selection of couches, chairs, books. Beach towels provided. Wonderful value all around. We’d definitely stay again.
John S. Jun 2020
I loved the balcony. The room was very comfy.
Richard P. May 2020
It was peaceful, quiet, private at an affordable price. The rental had enough accommodations to meet our needs while being very comfortable. The beach and sunsets were awesome. The location was great with a lot of places to see and explore. I will definitely be coming back to spend more time here.
Cathy J. Feb 2020
I came to visit in January and even with overcast skies this was the perfect retreat! The room was clean, updated, quiet, light filled, sounds of the ocean, easy access to a private beach. The fireplace made the studio cozy and the furnishings were varied enough that you were always comfortable no matter what you were doing.
Abdullah A. Sep 2019
Excellent stay Amazing view and the room look just like the picture definitely I will do it all over again it was an amazing experience

Srinivas K. Apr 2019
We stayed for 2 nights in unit#1A with family. Had wonderful experience and beautiful location. I think it is one of the best location in Florence and yachat area. Relax and enjoy the view. Kids loved PLEX movies:)
Thank you so much Vacasa for listing the great vacation home.

The house was clean and the property was gorgeous! We will definitely be returning.

Great private path to beautiful beach. This place is right in the middle of many outstanding National Parks and hiking trails.The owners are wonderfully sweet!

You can hear the waves and see the ocean from this unit. The beach is stunning!!
Stacy W. Sep 2018
We loved the view and the space. never used the laundry facilities attached to the next door building, but we did have the details should we have needed them.
Lovely decor, the gas logs worked great on a timer, the tv and dvd/blueray player worked well in the evenings. The gas logs could use a minor repair, looks like the metal faceplate is loose/coming off, wouldn't want a child to pull on it.

The only downside we found is the 1A unit at night is right on the corner for the drive down to the other buildings nearby. The bright light for the driveway is absolutely necessary for safety. Sadly the blinds don't entirely block it. I hope the owners consider adding a curtain layer in the future for additional light blocking at night. It is so dark at the coast that such a bright light at night for sleeping was a surprise. We decided to use the throw blankets provided as temporary curtains which worked well enough.

Beds were comfy, tons of pillows. Breakfast on the deck of in the kitchen worked great.

The last day of our stay we had enough hot water for a single long hair shower but we woke early that day. I bet the water heater is shared with the downstairs neighbors.

Overall we did love our stay, we worked around the minor things and this is a great stretch of coast to stay at. With all the sea and salt we were surprised at how bright, well maintained, and not weathered it was. Lovely place. Great view through the trees!
Manager response:
We appreciate this feedback and will suggest better blinds and/or curtains to block the light. Thanks!

Pros: Comfy beds, clean fresh white linens, eco bath products, amazing view, pristine beach. We loved our stay. This property is a gem!

Cons: Noise of street traffic (not that bad though. The ocean drowns most of it out).
Jose E. Jul 2018
Very clean, beautiful view, and a perfect location for a relaxing getaway. I was very impressed and am planning on returning. Will not disappoint!
Christy S. Jul 2018
Lovely view...great accommodations...incredible access to a beautiful beach!
Chad S. Jul 2018
We loved watching the sunset every night from the swing at the top of the cliffs. The secluded, relaxing property was perfect for us. Thank you.
Matt E. Feb 2018
No Beach Access even though it was adverised, they will send you a email with the WIFI password....Does not work, there are stickers on the walls with the correct password. No real TV, only a Roku TV with limited resources. No cell reception of any kind, so if you do not know how to change your phone to WIFI calling, you will be unable to use it. Im a project manager for a tech company, so it was just a incovenience for me. If you dont know tech, you will be isolated. Room was very clean and nice, they should have let me know that i would have to drive a 1/4 mile down the road to get to the beach, when i payed the premium price for beach front rental. Regardless only stayed for one night instead of the two i payed for.Will not choose this company again, Ill stick with Best Western.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see there were some disappointments with this stay. The beach access was washed away in a storm, but there are plans for new stairs to be built. Thank you!
