We loved the location, couldn't have been better. The tide pools were a huge draw. The two kitchens, many bedrooms and dual living rooms made the stay work well for our extended family, old and young. We had everything we needed, which was especially nice when it was necessary to stay pretty much to ourselves during the social distancing needed due to Covid 19.
Enough room for all of us and beautiful ocean views. This is the 2nd time we’ve rented this house for a multi-generation vacation. Nice to have two levels for different activities. Vacasa responded quickly when we had trouble with the lock.
Love this house! Plenty of space and love the location.
We loved the location – A perfect perch right next to tidal pools. Renting the entire two apartments at rocky shores gave us enough room to spread out and have bedrooms and bathrooms for all our family members. Both kitchens were well stocked in bathrooms and kitchens have plenty of basic supplies to get us started. A few suggestions: Provide more chairs and little tables for the deck. Two chairs and an aging lounge chair was not enough for all our family members on the upper deck. And there were no little tables If we wanted to have snacks or drinks there. Also, many of the floor boards on the deck were warped and presented a trip hazard. The grill was unusable due to age. We tried to use the fire pit but the neighbors next door said the smoke blew right into their house so we only did a fire one night. We enjoyed the house but did not feel it was worthy of its high rental cost.
Thank you for your review, Deborah. The property manager inspected the house and found the grill working and was unable to locate any floorboards causing tripping hazards. We are sorry to see these were concerns for you. The fire pit was not usable due to the fire department, and we will discuss the furniture with the owner. We hope to see you again!
The house was in great shape, wonderful views and a perfect getaway!
Great home with lots of space
Nice amount of space for multigenerational family get-together. Beautiful views and easy access to rocky shore with some tide pools and bit of sand at low tide. Two levels allowed for quiet and noisier areas.
This was a wonderful home for our family reunion. Plenty of room for everyone. The large front windows provided for beautiful views.
the location, the 2 rooms of bunk beds
Awesome space for extended family including grandchildren.
Well equipped kitchen to have home made meals including up to date appliances and food processor.
Clean, comfortable beds and gorgeous views!
The view; sunny days. as great a location as there is on the Oregon Coast.. (You might note that there are steps (staircases)
as a heads up to folks with some mobility issues)
This house is simply amazing and the view is unique and breath taking. Our extended family of 15 (8 adults, 7 kids) loved every minute of our stay and with such close access to the tide pools, the kids were busy all day long. One caution is if you have an RV, you will not be able to park it at the residence. We received that information in the confirmation email, but it wasn't listed on the site, so we had to make other arrangements with one of our family who had already started on a trek across the US to get to the beach house. We were able to find a public street to park on, but it was a hassle shuttling folks back and forth. Other than that, our stay was just about as perfect as it could get. The double kitchens were absolutely wonderful and convenient as well as the 4 bathrooms. There were some cosmetic issues inside the house that needed attention, but they were barely noticeable. I'd recommend this house to anyone looking for a getaway and has a large family. We saw whales, sea lions, and had easy access to a local grocery store and we were about 30 minutes away from Newport's aquarium. I'd recommend this house to anyone looking for a getaway and has a large family.
This home gives you a front tow seat to all the wonders of the ocean. Whales, sea lions, crashing waves, glorious sunsets all from the comfort of the kitchen, the family room, the deck, the back yard. Views galore! The home was well appointed and we lacked nothing in the kitchen or bathroom supplies. The beds and linens were comfortable and of nice quality. Although not an issue for us, there is no master bedroom. The downstairs unit and upstairs unit each have 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. We rented the entire house for 6 people.
The only issues were related to entry and keys. We could only get one code to work which provided access and once inside we were able to get keys however we could only use the one door the entire stay. A few lights need new lightbulbs but again not a huge problem as we spent most of our time outdoors. Overall we would highly recommend this clean, quiet, well appointed home and plan to stay here again.
We love Yachats and this is not our first time to the area. We highly recommend Heidi’s Italian restaurant and Adobe restaurant. Toppers is great for fudge, ice cream and taffy.
Amazing views and location. Out the door to tide pools and easy walk to sandy beach
You certainly can't ask for more when gathering with our children and their young families for an Oregon Coast escape. The home (actually a duplex) offers double living quarters which was great for us - young children and early risers stayed down stairs while us 'older folks' were upstairs. The double kitchens came in handy for fixing the kids dinner vs the adults. And as for the location - it was simply perfect. So many trails, hikes, and beaches to explore along with fascinating maritime history and relics. The novel shops attempt to stay true to the culture (not a lot of imports) and the organic vibe gives you a taste of beach living along the coast.
The furnishings in the home are 'usable' - meaning, I didn't feel like the grandkids couldn't sit on a 'white couch' - it was simply comfortable. The two swivel/reclining chairs were always in use, taking in the panoramic views of the ocean that crashes just yards away at high tide.
My only wish was that the home had more cleaning supplies so that we could have taken care of some of the minor things when we arrived. Not a deal breaker by any means, I'm just a clean freak :) Great house. Great locations. Amazing memories. Thank you!
You can spread out here with all the beds! And the ocean is 20 feet away!! Whales all day long!
This home is in a great location and the views are incredible! We had three families and the bedroom/bed layout was fantastic. Many other homes sleep a lot of people, but only have 3-4 bedrooms. This house had plenty of room to be together, but enough places to have some privacy as well. Dining table upstairs had extensions so we could seat 10 around it and was in a big enough room for everyone to be together. Loved the fire pit and hot tub. Beds were ok, not great. Overall great condition with everything in good repair. Rocks just below the house were fun to climb around on and there is a sandy beach just a few minutes walk down the street. We will be back!
The problems with management of the site are detailed above; Unresponsive on our request to get in early, clearly an easy, impersonal response; problems that should never have occurred with addressed with cheerful and rather quick response.
We were charged for that Saturday-and not allowed in until 4 PM!! The house had clearly not been visited by any cleaning staff for at least-at least 48 hours before we arrived!
We apologize for any disappointments this guest experienced involving our staff. Early check-in cannot be confirmed until the morning of a reservation and might not be available for any number of reasons. Guests are paying for each night rather than day, so check-in time at 4pm is standard for all of our units. Thanks!
We felt like we were right on top of the ocean here, and the lack of an immediate beach to walk on was more than made up for by the AMAZING view from the comfort of the home. The kitchens were well equipped for the most part, though we brought some of our own cooking supplies to be sure we would have what we needed. Our only complaint was the beds were mostly less comfortable than we would have liked, but again, the view made up for a lot. We would definitely stay here again, especially if some new mattresses were brought in!!!
Clean and nice service by providing everything.
We stayed in the rocky shores, house on the water, and the Views are spectacular. You will feel spoiled staying in this Yachats home. You will not want to leave this Coastal home.
Been here many times and we love it and will be back again. But be sure that if the confirmation email promises a coffee grinder and French press, that the property actually has those items. The cutlery could use an upgrade, tough cutting with such dull knives.
We came at night and didn't appreciate how dazzling the ocean was until coming into the living room the next morning. The pictures online doesn't do it justice. We waited for each sleepy head's jaw to drop. Spectacular!
Beautiful home with absolutely stunning views. Staff was very helpful and responded quickly to all questions. The home was spacious clean and very comfortable. I would highly recommend this home for anyone looking for a vacation rental on the Oregon Coast. Beware, you will not want to leave once you step foot into this place. Thank You Vacasa.
Perfect location and a lot of fun for a big group. Our favorite part was the fire pit overlooking the ocean.
We were a group of 4 families and we rented both the top and bottom units. It was just perfect for our needs and the view was breathtaking. There were 3 bedrooms on each floor with separate kitchen, living and dining areas. The 3rd bedroom on each floor had two bunk beds each as well. The spa was in perfect working condition. That star attraction of our trip was the almost private sandy beach that was right below. The hike down the rocks was slightly tedious with the little kids but once we got there it was just amazing. We had 2 dogs with us as well and both of them had a fabulous time playing there. We went to Sand Dunes Frontier and got a tour on the dunes buggy. The smaller 4-5 seater dune buggies were so much fun! We then went to C&M stables near Baker Beach for a beach ride on the horse. The Heceta Head Lighthouse looked straight out of a story book. We had a lunch and a dinner at Ona restaurant in Yachats which is less than 2 miles from this house. The food was very impressive and the drink that they had on their specials menu called the " Thai Basil Press" is something that I am going to try to recreate.
Great location, nice furnishings, marginal housekeeping.
very pleased, we rented both units. Plenty of room for all.
This is a beautiful house that worked well for our extended family of ten. Since I didn't see this information in other reviews, I'll note that the upper and lower floors each have three bedrooms, two with queen beds and a third with two double-bunk beds. Each level also has two baths (none ensuite) and kitchen/washer/dryer. Although the house is directly on the ocean, the actual "beach" is a short 10-minute walk away. Immediately in the back yard is a rocky area where the kids spent hours searching through the tide pools. In many ways that was better than a beach (although our kids are older; the tidepool area is probably not suitable for young children without supervision). Views are amazing from both the lower and upper levels; the upper level also has a large deck which is great for watching the Orcas! The house was well maintained and comfortable. The fire pit and the hot tub were both big hits for the family as well.
Beautiful views from the enormous windows - very nice rental, quality furnishings, appliances, kitchenware, etc. The grills weren't working very well, only downfall, but pretty minor with all other things considered. Would definitely come back again!
This was a last minute reservation due to a double booking on another property and Vacasa was helpful, even late on a Sunday night! The information provided was accurate and accessible. Having spices and a few additional kitchen items was a real treat!
This is a well kept, convenient and well located home. We rented this with 3 other families. Everyone had their space and space to hang out together. The views were incredible! We just sat and watched the sunrise, sunsets, high and low tide, just mesmerized for hours. Helpful staff, clean bedding and well stocked.
Wonderful 2015 Christmas vacation experience. Rocky shores right off our door step and a perfectly designed home to experience the ocean view and spend time with family and friends. Do it, you'll be glad you did!
A group of 12 of us had an amazing Labor Day weekend here. The home worked out perfectly for us. It was clean, modern and came equipped with everything we needed for a fun and comfortable stay.
I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this rental home.
Our four children and eight grandchildren will always treasure our 16-day Yachats experience.
Greg & Diana Shepard: Salt Lake City, Utah
We have rented about 20 homes up and down the Oregon Coast. This was a great home for proximity to Yachats, great ocean views and sounds. Having two full kitchens worked nicely for our group. The neighbors are immediately adjacent to this home on both sides, so privacy was not as good as other homes we have rented. The fire pit outside was fantastic. Overall, this home worked well for our group, but we would be more likely to go back to one of the homes we've rented with more privacy and direct access to sandy beach where kids can play safely.
Great for large family gatherings when renting both units; the linens and furniture were far better than expected in a weekly rental location. We loved it here and had 14 of our family get together for a wonderful time of beach exploration, kayaking and just enjoying the OR coast.
I would highly recommend this house!
We stayed at the Rocky Shores House with my brother-in-law and his family. The kids loved searching the shores for treasures and whale watching. We saw them on two different occasions from the house. There was plenty of room for eleven of us. Having two kitchens was great! Four bathrooms with three teenage girls was even better! The views from the house were amazing. We would definitely stay again!
We loved this location the house was great but the views were to die for . We will be back again for sure.
Awesome view of crashing waves into rocks. We were glad for the stormy weather so we could sit a watch the waves and foam!
If you can stay here. The stay here is wonderful. We did not want to leave. It is well supplied with everything you would need to have guest over for a BBQ and just enjoy the peaceful environment. Limit 16 people at any given time though and not loud partying. Family and large group friendly!
We would highly recommend staying here. Great hot tub, patios and views next to the waves crashing on the rocks. Location is perfect for a getaway destination and still have really good restaurants.
We really enjoyed our stay we had a party of 15, we all had a comfort, enjoyed the view, we will definately be back to stay
The beach house cleanliness was totally unsatisfactory.
We spent the first part of our vacation cleaning the house so we could live there.
There were black pubic hairs all over the downstairs small bathroom toilet.
We swept the down stars apartment and got a ton of dust, dirt and hairballs. I will send you a pic of the dust pile.
There were no sheets on the double bed in the downstairs bedroom. The bed with the bunk on top. We found a set of sheets wadded up under the other bed when we were vacuuming the floor. We did not dare use them because they did not look like they had been laundered. We called Donna as the local representative and she said she would bring clean sheets right over. Donna never came with the sheets....she did not even show up or call.
Some of our party slept on the mattress pad that night.
The whole beach house was dirty and dusty.
We rented both units of Rocky Shores for a family reunion. We had 11 adults, a child, a teenager, and 2 babies in the house. We enjoyed being able to spread out and come together for games and meals. The porch overlooking the ocean was a favorite draw and an early morning soak in the hot tub enjoying the view was a great way to start the day. The whole family enjoyed our time at Rocky Shores and around the town of Yachats.
This is a great location to take in nature's beauty and relax. The views of the coast are awesome, especially at high tide. There is great access to hiking and outdoor activities as well.
We had plenty of room for our 13 family members, and couldn't have asked for a better place to spend time together.
Our family group consisted of 17 adults/kids plus several babies, and this house handled everyone well. The many living spaces, all with lovely views, were much enjoyed by our group. The 5 minute walk to the beach and 10 minute walk into Yachats is very pleasant. We all loved watching high tide crash into the rocks below the house. Many times other travelers paused at the wayside near the house to enjoy 'our' view, but we felt very special that we got to watch it all day long from our living room. One down side-- the kitchens are small. But it was nice that there are two. This enabled us to use two fridges, and a couple times both ovens at the same time also. Lovely house for our family.
It is so nice to know that your large group of 17 adults and several little ones were comfortable in this stunning oceanfront home. The view alone is worth the money but the home is so comfortable and well appointed. We hope you'll stay with us again next time!
This place was absolutely magical! I rented this place for a goddess getaway and everything was so serendipitous. The view,the tea lights,the 4 pods of humpback whales, the sea lions, and the beautiful sunset! The beds were like sleeping on a cloud in a dream And the hot tub was the perfect touch. We are hoping to make this an annual thing!
Our Easter family reunion was a huge success, thanks to the large and comfortable house. The 2 kitchens were a blessing for us, since food, food prep, snacking and meals are a big part of our family culture. The fascinating views of the ocean kept us entertained day and night. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us.
Thank you for your feedback. We're pleased that your family's Easter reunion was a success and that the kitchens and views were a hit! We hope you'll come again for your next reunion!
Our family of 3 generations had a wonderful time. The two apartments worked quite well for us. Views are spectacular.
Your facility exceeded our expectations in every way. We had a great gathering at a great location in a class facility.
Had a great family reunion and were able to accommodate many of us in one house! Fantastic view!
We have a great time here, it was a good first time beach house experience for my family and I. If you have extra vehicle you have to have them park pretty far out but other than that, it was good.
Wonder place and location. Great views and a nice outdoor lawn. Not on a sandy beach, but their is a nice outdoor area for children to play in or sit if the weather allows.
We bring our ladies group to the beach every year for a convention. This house was a huge hit and has been voted our 'go to' house every year from here out. Hated to leave the amazing view!
We are flattered that you chose this home for your annual event. Thanks and we look forward to your return!
We very much enjoyed our stay and the spectacular views of the stormy ocean from the windows of the home. The house was more than comfortable and very well stocked with the kind of supplies (especially in the kitchen) needed by a large group of people. The beds were comfortable and it was nice havng more than one TV so the men could watch the games while the ladies watched movies in the other room. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I would recommend it to anyone.
The nearness of the beach was way okay. The waves, the seals, the tide pools, the storm clouds coming in and even the thunder and lightning were great.
The big negatives were the stairs with no railings and the slippery plywood by the back door. Some of the light fixtures needed new bulbs.
Other big pluses were the two kitchens, the fireplace (with dry wood), the hot tub.
Everything was great!
We loved it. View is unparalleled. We only wish we'd been there when we had more daylight to enjoy it. We'll definitely return.
Thank you! Yes, we agree the view is one of the best on the coast! Please do return soon.
Nice house, great view, awesome sunset. Caught Sea Perch off the rocks right in front of the house. Would be great place for multifamily gathering.
Rocky Shores is not only a beautiful and comfortable place to stay with incredible location but the owners are generous and trusting. The furnishings and supplies were more than ample to to make it feel like home. Donna and crew had the place clean & ship shape and helped out during our stay.
Fanastic house... great views... perfect location for vacation..
We celebrated a friends 50th B-day at the house. Slept 12 people perfect! Having two kitchens was ideal. The view was amazing!!!!! We watched the whales migrate north for hours. The firepit and hot tub was such a treat. Thank you!!!!!
Great place, wonderful location, close to town, etc. We had some bad storms and I left a note, but in case the message didn't get through: the cover to the hottub blew off even with the addition of a rock and a cement brick, and there is water under the flooring in the downstairs livingroom. You can feel and hear it squishing as you stand in front of the counter.
Great place, thanks!
Thank you for your review, we are taking care of the maintenance issues from the storm, it was certainly a rough one!
The bedrooms were small, but we slept 17. ( Seven of them were children.) Wonderful view. It was really nice to have two kitchen.(one for snacks and kids) 3 nice areas for tv watching and family gathering. I would recommend this to my friends.
The house is set up to be used as two independent flats, or combined for a large group. Our family of six with four dogs used the whole house. It could comfortably sleep many many more and the separate levels provided opportunities for independent activities. The house is nicely decorated, has plenty of living space and seating, and is well equipped with kitchen accessories, linens, etc.. The latter was a surprise compared to other rental experiences we have had. The quality of the facility is very high-end with spectacular views and reasonable privacy. Beach access is a short walk away, which proved to be ideal. We will be back.
Incredible location. we all enjoyed the house very much.
Our family very much enjoyed our long weekend in your home. It is large enough to give everyone their own space but the upstairs is fantastic for gathering.
We couldn't get enough of the wonderful view and crashing waves. The house has a very comfortable feel about it and the entire family had a very relaxing time.
The men really enjoyed the hot tub under the stars each evening.
Thanks again for coming to our assistance and responding so quickly to our questions.
What a beautiful spacious house. We all could relax in comfort without feeling crowded. The specatucular view couldn't be beat!
Thank you for the great stay! We really enjoyed the scenery. This is a very beautiful vacation home and we hope we can come back to this amazing place!
We really enjoyed our stormy weekend here! Great wave, bird and sea lion watching from the window! Hope to return soon.
