Ocean Observatory 200 Cedar Ave., Yachats, OR 97498

Your next family reunion or friend getaway needs to be at this incredible Yachats vacation rental for 10. Three stories of beautiful furnishings, home essentials, breathtaking ocean views, and a private hot tub await.

Perched on a hill inside a quiet neighborhood on the east side of town, this home is wonderfully located to take in ocean views and vistas of the beautiful Coast Range mountains, make the easy walk to the market for dinner ingredients, and still feel perfectly secluded. Minimal light pollution way out here in Yachats allows for some of the best stargazing, and the back deck of this home is just the place after a fun-filled day.

Between the wood and plush carpeted floors, colorful art in each room, and brand new, high-end furnishings, you'll find this rental to be just what your trip needed. And everyone will feel right at home with the included washer and dryer and WiFi for looking up directions and streaming music. Best of all is the private hot tub nestled on the deck, waiting to bring your relaxation to the next level.

Enter the Ocean Observatory into the middle and main level. Decorated with greys and calming teals, the living room will be one of the hot spots during down time. Enormous windows let you peek at the ocean while snuggling up with a book on the armchair. Settle into the sectional and flip on the flatscreen TV to watch your favorite show using the cable or Netflix, or put a movie in the DVD player for a family movie night.

When the dinner bell sounds, sit at the modern wood table for six (there are three additional folding chairs and a leaf to extend the table as necessary) to gobble up a delicious home-cooked meal prepared in the adjacent kitchen. Equipped with everything necessary, you'll find yourself saving time and money by cooking meals right at home during vacation. There are major appliances, a microwave, coffeemaker, coffee grinder, blender, slow cooker, and so much more.

Before climbing into a comfortable bed, head downstairs to the great room to have a game of foosball, play cards across the small table, or even finish a movie on the flatscreen TV. The futon, twin bunk beds, and half bathroom down here allow for more sleeping space, and the kids will love having their own floor.

One of the three bedrooms (with a king-size bed) and a full bathroom are located on the middle floor, and two more bedrooms (one with a king-size bed and one with a queen-size bed) and a second full bathroom complete the third floor. With a total of three beds, two twin roll-a-way beds, and a futon, all 10 travelers will rest well each night.

This sleepy beach town is a great spot to relax, let the cares of the world drift away with the changing tide, and spend quality time with loved ones. Walk into town to shop at cozy boutiques and eat delicious seafood at Luna Sea Fish House. The Green Salmon Coffee Shop also offers fantastic, fair-trade coffee and pastries.

Head down to the beach for a peaceful stroll while listening to the waves crash, let the kids chase the seagulls and search for seashells, and see who can build the tallest sand castle. This stretch of beach tends to be uncrowded and is particularly excellent for beachcombing and hunting for tide pools, as well. Waldport is eight miles north, and Newport is 24 miles away, both great places to explore.

Book this tasteful Central Oregon Coast vacation rental and long walks on the beach and soaking in the hot tub will be in your near future.

    Lovely place! Would absolutely stay here. The warnings not to be loud were scary until we got there- basically they are to scare off the frat bros. Normal people being normal just don't make enough sound to drown out the ocean.

    We stay here for the weekend by the time Sunday came around we wished we could stay longer. The house felt very comfortable from the moment we walked in. Everything was clean we had no issues at all. The kitchen had everything you could need to cook with. The layout of the house is perfect for families. Downstairs had a game room with a TV the kids had a really good time. Overall we LOVED this house and we are already planning on coming back.

    The Ocean Observatory was super clean and very comfortable; and we loved the new dishes/utensils/pots. And then the location is ideal for a family to explore the beach. We'll be back!

    I was very impressed with the modern and new decor..very well done. The beds are incredible and I want to know where to get some pillows like that! I'd rather sleep there than my own bed! Kitchen was fully stocked,only thing we needed but didnt have was cooking spray. The twin beds it talkes about in the description are actually little roll aways that you pull out into the game room(not what we expected but it didnt matter to us). Our single guy friend was fine on the futon and all the couples enjoyed their rooms. Hot tub was nice,but does not have true jets. We had an amazing time. The TV is great, very nice living room, we took advance of the game room... Good price split between the 8 people we had there. Good sized bathrooms. No bad things to say about this place! We want to make it a yearly tradition and stay in this house again!

    A great place to stay, maybe a bit expensive. Also a shortage of enough hot water to accommodate a large family or group. But the view was wonderful and neighborhood quiet. We had no trouble with neighbors yelling at us but then we had a really quiet weekend. The kitchen was well stocked. We did all our own cooking so I purposely took extra things I thot I'd need. The decor is lovely. The hot tub is great!

    We have rented a house with vacasa in Newport, Florence, and now this one in Yachats. This home and town was by far my favorite. The view from the living room is spectacular. The house is clean and cute decor. If you are just looking to relax for a few days this is the place. Only complaints are one garbage bag was supplied for a 4 day stay. Also, it is suggested in the "what not to bring" not to being shampoo and conditioner. There was 1oz supplied for a house that sleeps 10 adults. Bring your own unless you plan on going to the market to purchase. :-) great stay overall. Will be back!

    This rental is gorgeous and located in a great spot with wonderful views! The only thing that really impacted our stay at this beautiful house was the neighbor. I had read a previous review about someone yelling at lodgers for being too loud when they were not and we had the same experience. There are signs inside saying to be quiet when using the hot tub as the neighbors are "extremely sensitive to noise" which gave us pause - as we are not a raucous group, though, we took note for using the hot tub. However, just an hour or so after we arrived, we were out on the front deck talking and heard a series of weird guttural sounds - they were really eerie. We were concerned and called down "Is everything ok?" to make sure someone or something wasn't hurt and a woman screamed up "SHUT UP!" Mind you, we were a group of 40 year old women, simply sitting on the deck at 5:30pm, talking and laughing - there was no loud music, shouting, or the like. We went inside to continue our conversation, but it left a shroud on the delightful time we had been having and we felt unable to enjoy the beautiful decks in the sun with the great views. We also felt reserved when in the hot tub. This has obviously been an issue in the past and needs to be addressed somehow as it really does not feel good to be yelled at and a bummer not to be able to enjoy the wonderful decks and hot tub. I would only recommend this place to a friend if this were addressed. If the neighbor were not an issue, we would have had a perfectly stellar time as the house is wonderful, the view amazing and the location in Yachats ideal!

    We had such an awesome time at this house. We had already been on the go for nearly a week, and needed some downtime. This house could not have been better! It was so comfortable and had everything we needed. The foosball table and dartboard in the basement were very well used, and loved the hot tub in the backyard. The town of Yachats is cute and has nice cafés, restaurants, and shops, but we really didn't explore all that much. The house is a short walk from town, as is access to the coast. The Oregon coast trail goes through town, and it is quite a beautiful walk. Our only complaint about the house, and this is very small, is that it lacked some basic pantry items like oil and sugar. Most of the other places we stayed during our visit to Oregon had these things, along with a few other items like garlic powder and pepper flakes that make cooking easier. This is such a minor thing though, and we highly recommend this house.

    We loved this property. If you will be getting to the beach I would count on a short drive. Not easily walkable, but we were fine with that as we did not have children this weekend. The house is tastefully decorated and clean. We did have one maintainace issue with the hot tub, but the property manager dealt with it promptly. Great weekend! Thank you.

    We've been renting houses in Yachats for years. We've finally found one we will go back to, again and again! It was great for our family plus two others and our young kids.
    Very clean, well organized, newer furnishings. There was a "basement" room perfect for the kiddos to hang out! Beautiful balcony off the living area with ocean view. Hot tub. Quick walk to downtown and our favorite restaurants. Longer walk to beach (but doable, or 5min drive).
    Overall, we are very happy to find a place we can return to regularly with extended family and friends!!!!!

    The house was very well stocked with lots of extra towels and linens. The kitchen had everything we needed. However, it did not have any spices, typically there is at least salt and pepper. But we made due.

    The house was pretty clean when we arrived. However, the hot tub did not appear to have been cleaned after the prior guests had departed. The neighbor behind the hot tub did not like when anyone was using the hot tub.

    We really enjoyed hiking down to the beach at Cape Perpetua. There is a great combination of sandy beach and rocks to explore. We would stay here again!

    The pictures don't lie and this home was everything it promised. Three bedrooms with three real beds is hard to find. The living room furniture was nice looking and quite comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with cooking items and dishes. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend and hope to stay there again myself some day.

    The home was much bigger than we expected, which was a good thing. The view from the upstairs along with the sound of the crashing waves made an amazing spot for some downtime studying. Everything you would expect to find in a home, you have access to. We all were thoroughly pleased. I know it's not really plausible, but a balcony hot tub....would be superb!
