By far the beach, and location. The house is well maintained and clean. It is an older home right on the beach it smell like beach which is normal. A remote for the garage would be nice. The code to remote did not work but vacasa rep. helped right away.
Loved everything about this place, location, size, view, comfort, hot tub, friendly town, dog friendly, we had the best time!
Would give it 4.5 stars if possible- great location, had a great time!
Great house with a lot of room and everything you need. Smells of the coast and an older home are to be expected. Love the view! The access to the beach was rad!
This is a great house to stay at. It is well maintained and a comfortable house to stay in. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots and pans. The hot tub was fun to soak in and the beach is outside the backyard. The location of the house is easy to explorer other coastal towns. We will be back.
Great home. Everything was as expected. We loved the beach access and took every opportunity to enjoy it. Hot tub was a nice way to relax at the end of the day.
This is such a great home. . Love that it is dog friendly. We had an excellent time on the beach.
Loved the location! The house was spotless. Hot tub was wonderful on the beautiful starlit nights. We will be back!
It's a very cozy home, nicely decorated and furnished. You feel like your staying with family rather than a sparsely furnished bare bones vacation rental. Owners and managers are close by to help if needed. Location is great, half hour to Newport, smaller coastal towns even closer. Walk out the back yard to the beach or watch the waves roll in from the hot tub. Would stay again!
The location was perfect.
No need to look any further. This is now our Oregon Coast go-to home. This home has everything you could ask for; Hot tub, beach front, secure space for dogs, comfortable beds and well-stocked kitchen, and garage parking.
Miles of beautiful beach just steps away! Great for families, couples or get-always with friends.
Located minutes from adorable Yachats, OR. Close to aquarium, beaches, seal caves and tide pooling.
Looking forward to our next stay here!
This place exceeded my expectations . I want to return here again. It has a lovely , grassy yard . You can completely contain your dog with the perfect fencing that goes all around the house . The kitchen had everything! My stay was not long enough . Great hot tub.
It was close enough to town. But when you went outside to enjoy the beach, you had it all to yourself.
yachats is a cute little town and probably our favorite we have visted so far. we hiked a different spot everyday. this place was great for everyone from the small kiddos, to the teenager, to the grandparents, and the dog too. the furniture is comfortable and wipeable which I really appreciated with a kiddo with allergies. We loved the outdoor space and the windblock for ocean watching. My older kids loved having the hot tub. it was great being able to let the dog lounge outside and the beach access is right there. The beach is super quiet, which we love. we loved having the yard to play catch. there are a few stickers so beware but not as bad as some places we have rented on the coast. this place is very well equipped. you can tell the owners spend time here. they had everything we needed in the kitchen and even games to play. it feels like a home instead of a rental. we loved it! thanks for sharing!
Nice property, nice furniture, wonderful big back yard. Unfortunately, it smells very strongly of mildew type smell. Things you bring home will smell like this too. It also could have been cleaner. Beach access is probably not appropriate for those with agility challenges. Luna Seafood in Yahats has excellent food.
We have taken measures to keep the moisture down and get rid of the mildew smell. Thank you!
The house was well stocked for creating meals and the view and access to the beach were awesome. The surround on the patio made it possible to be outside regardless of whether there were windy conditions. We enjoyed incredible sunsets and the enclosed back patio made it possible for our dogs to be with us and to be safe. Our group had an incredible time and enjoyed creating many priceless memories.
The property was beautiful. Lovely setting for my husbands birthday
Amazing view. Second time staying here. Beach is close enough to touch from the house. The access to the beach was perilous at best. It was fairly wet and it was extremely slick, most everyone in our party took a spill on the slippery clay like access. The elderly and children should probably go another way. Very roomy house, well stocked kitchen and clean.
Wonderful area and beautiful view. Easy beach access. Enjoyed hot tub as it was cold and windy. Fix fireplace or make it clear that it does not work. Deceiving from photos. All in all..enjoyed our stay. Very clean.
This was the best stocked, most comfortable home I have ever rented. Very quiet with easy access to the beach. Only negative was that it said it had a fireplace but it didn't. Just a decorative one with lighted rocks, but no heat emitted. The hot tub was large and thoroughly loved by my grandkids and rest of us. Couldn't build a fire in the firepit because of the weather but a nice touch.
The location of this house is incredible. We had very easy access to the beach where we were able to take long walks. The views are exceptional from the living room, kitchen and hot tub. Having the hot tub was a wonderful bonus. The area is very quiet which was what we wanted. Close to town - we love Yachats. We are planning a trip to this property with friends.
My wife and I stayed with another couple and our dogs. We enjoyed the quiet location, easy access to the uncrowded beach, and the completely enclosed patio. The kitchen is very well equipped, including every kind of pan and plenty of herbs and spices. The grill is small but was adequate for cooking for four. There was even an extra propane tank, which we didn't need. We'll probably want to return.
You can't ask for a better location. Gorgeous beach, big backyard, and positioned far enough from Highway 101. The glass wall surrounding the back of the house was just topping the cake due to the coastal wind.
Have stayed HERE TWICE AND WOULD LOVE TO STAY AGAIN
Great beachfront getaway! The house inside and out is better than the photos. Dog friendly and clean! Would definitely stay there again!!!
The best features of this beautiful beach front home are the luxurious hot tub overlooking the ocean, and the wind shielded patio. There are many little extras provided such as spices, laundry baskets, beach towels, and games. This is a good location to bring dogs and young children as the patio wraps around the house and is fenced off, and there is a nice green lawn on the front and side.
overall a very nice spot on the beach. Would be nice to have better beach access! Pretty nice weather and a great part of the coast !
The most relaxing place we have rented. Having the garage and laundry facilities is a plus.Being right at the beach is beyond words. Jacuzzi is special to look forward to after a day of sightseeing. After 5 years we are still discovering little nooks in Yachats. Special area to vacation. Vacasa is by far the best rental agency to deal with.
I have stayed in quite a few Vacasa rentals and this is by far my most favorite for the coast! Cannot wait to go back and make more memories with my family. It was truly that wonderful.
We have stayed at many properties in the Yachats area and this is our GO TO spot if it is available
We had a great time. We saw a bald eagle and sea lions playing in the surf. There was a great lightning show. Watching the ocean from the table while having our morning coffee was awesome.
We loved the house, the view, the patio, and the hot tub was a nice addition. (we stayed here aprox 7 years ago...loved it then too.
PS People with fragrance issues please beware that this house uses scented soaps.
The beach right outside our door and the huge lawn heading to the sand were perfect for us and our two dogs. We'd recommend this place most highly!
We basically moved into the house for a week, and love all of it. Minutes to necessities for shopping; couldn't be closer to the Pacific without being IN the Pacific. Wonderfully furnished and appointed. And the kitchen had absolutely everything - including oils and spices and a few odds and ends left by previous guests. Of the multiple trips we've taken to the coast - Canon Beach, Seaside, Lincoln City, Newport, Cape Meares, this was BY FAR our favorite. Not even close. Whether you want to stroll on the beach, toss a tennis ball for the dog or play with the kids in the spacious, flat, manicured front yard, stare into the Pacific from the luxurious comfort of the hot tub or snuggle in for a movie with the fireplace in view, THIS is where you should stay.
We stayed here for 3 nights
It is a beautiful location, very easy to get to the beach. Great if you have dogs, ours loved it!! The whole patio is fenced in with glass, so it's great to sit and watch the waves, especially from the hot tub! The kitchen was very well stocked. Overall, we had a great time.
This house is spectacular! The beach is literally right across the yard. You can feel the stress melting away!
The house, location and condition, were just what we hoped for. We recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet get a way.
Long time girl friends stayed several nights in this oceanfront rental and were the recipients of lovely weather, quiet beaches, good food, drink and fun. Be sure to take advantage of the hot tub and since crab season opened ... try your luck ... we got four good size males in 3 hours (renting from Dock of the Bay.)
We would definitely consider returning to this home ... it was not too big nor too small!
The views were spectacular and easy access to the beach.
We enjoyed our time so much it was hard to leave. We hope to come back again!
We did not want to leave.
Can't beat the location, house is nice. We have stayed here 5 times, can't beat the view.
This is our third time staying in Yachats and the second time staying in this home. My family and I have enjoyed this home much. Large garage for parking or staging things you have brought it has a second side by side fridge/freezer. A large yard we played bocce ball and flew our kite. Private beach access is great but could be improved with a set of steps down to the beach. The kids enjoyed the boogie boarding. The thing that is nice is if you bring in your food and stuff and don't want to leave for any reason it is very nice and peaceful. We got some nice seafood fresh from the "luna Sea" in Yachats to take back to the house and grill/ fry/saute...( Tuna/Oyster/scallops). Anyway the owner stopped by to mow the lawn and apologized for the noise, no apology needed but it was appreciated.
Wonderful setting, great accommodations, easy access to beach, kitchen beautifully equipped. I would happily return.
Nice quite home on the beach, nice view of the ocean
Wonderful location, very comfortable and pet friendly
Not in town but still very nice and good location. Clean and well kept home. I would probably recommend making some better steps down to the beach, because everyone in my family slipped on the slimy clay that leads to the beach. I actually fell down the embankment. I've stayed here 3 times now and it keeps getting worse every year. It seems like a minor gripe, until you realize that the beach access is the whole reason you're there.... Overall good experience.
Overall very good. Nice place. The owner came to stay next door on the best weather day(day before leaving) and was mowing and trimming lawn. Don't know why they couldn't have waited till next day.
This house does it all well for its size. Nice view, comfortable furniture, well stocked quality kitchen supplies, easy beach access. Grassy area and enclosed patio great for dogs. Garage good for storing coolers etc. Fine hot tub.
Nice property. Would've been great if we could've accessed the beach from the property but the access was very steep and slippery, so I had to just be happy with the fabulous view. House was well stocked but bring your own games if that what you plan on doing. Had a great time and the dogs loved the big yard and the ability to run down the bank to chase birds on the beach even if I couldn't follow them.
Spent Christmas at this beautiful home. Quiet, clean, comfortable. Terrific place!
This residence is probably what everyone would wish to do with their winnings. Looks and feels like a "Home away from Home". Comfortable, cozy and perfectly located. 50 steps from the beach and far enough from town not to have a crowded feeling on the beach, but close enough to run into town for things, It is hard to beat and easy to imagine it is your Beach home for the few days you are there.
This house has ithe all, enjoyed the hot tub and listening to the ocean!!
We greatly enjoyed our stay and appreciated all the attention to decor, guest needs, and beautiful views. House will meet your needs, and outdoor area is just wonderful with barbecue, hot tub, wind protection, etc. One bedroom had problems with mildew smells, airing it out helped a bit.... Overall, wonderful experience.
My wife has loved visiting this area for most of her life. I have enjoyed this stretch of the Oregon coast since my permanent move to this state in 1985. We have camped, stayed in motels and rented homes for Oregon coast vacations many times.
The Sparkling Sands home was the best place for us so far. We loved the dog friendly home and beach. Our chocolate lab and our boxer ran and retrieved in the beach and in the ocean many hours during our stay. We ran or walked multiple miles on the beach. Our 2 young adult daughters loved the bedrooms, their own bathroom and the wind shielded patio that wrapped around the south and west side of the house. This area gave us a great sunny place from which to read, watch the ocean or take a snooze. We had an easy time using the propane grill for a couple of meals too.
The kitchen is well stocked and the furniture is very comfortable. The views from the house are spectacular. The beach was never crowded and we had mid 60's, sunny days with mild to moderate breezes most of our stay.
We got to meet the friendly home owners on our last morning. They have developed this place into a perfect, relaxing vacation spot. We definitely plan on returning!! Thanks!
The grandchildren and my daughters and I loved our stay! The access to the sandy beach, the grassy backyard, the hot tub, the comfort of the house - what more could one ask for! It was a perfect vacation.
This was our 3rd year of staying at the Sparkling Sands. Each time we stay we love it even more. The home is so comfortable. They have everything you need for your visit. The owners have been so gracious to share this lovely home so we can enjoy. We extend a Thank you to the owners and also Vasaca for the efficiency in which they handle the reservations.
We greatly value our repeat guests as we know we would be nothing without you. We hope to see you again soon!
The beach, the hot tub, the view, comfy beds. So many things to love. We stayed here with our family of four and our dog. Everyone had comfortable places to sit and see the ocean view. Easy access to the things we needed. It felt like we were staying at a home not a rental.
We are so happy to hear that you loved the home and had enough space for everyone! Also that you were able to bring along your furry friend to enjoy the wonderful vacation and location. Thank you for choosing Vacasa.
Best stocked house we have ever stayed at!!! They have everything you need. Loved the view and hit tub and easy walks to the beach daily.... I didn't want to leave!
This is one of the best VBRO we have stayed in. We love to cook and the kitchen was perfectly equipped with everything we needed. The hot tub was a super delight. We would stay again for sure!!
It was our first time staying in this home and I'm sure it won't be the last. With large TVs and extensive cable in each bedroom, this was the perfect rainy coast get away. This was hands-down the best stocked vacation rental I've ever visited. Everything we needed (and then some!) was there. The owners and managers have thought of everything. Thank you!
Our vacation started off a little bit shaky as we received a phone call half way into our trip telling us there was a problem with our original rental. We were given several choices for replacement rentals in Newport, but none were on the beach, as our first selection. Being seniors, our walking is somewhat limited. Tiffany and Margo went above and beyond expectations. Margo called to say that she had found a rental in Yachats, 25 miles down the coast. Upon arriving, the rental was everything we had hoped for. Beach access off the back yard grass, beautiful, comfortable home, close to Yachats and shops. There is not one thing these girls could have done to make our vacation more pleasurable. They have made customers for life.
Thank you for this wonderful review! Yachats really is a great, little town with plenty of fantastic restaurants and unique shops. We do have a wonderful team here and it is great to hear that they were able to get you into a unit that was exactly what you were looking for. We are excited to have the opportunity to impress you again!
Wonderful place! We'll be back
This is our second year of spending Christmas Eve through New Year's Day at the Oregon Coast, first time at this property. This home was generally comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. Location was great and convenience of enclosed yard area for our dogs. I think the amenities at this particular home would be especially good during the warmer time of the year (hot tub, BBQ, patio, outdoor fire pit). We will do this again but will probably try another property next year just to mix it up.
Sparking Sands is a superb place to stay. The enclosed patio area is really appreciated on windy days and the home itself is large but cozy. The inside is beautifully appointed and has been well maintained. The owners are very gracious and truly want your visit to be special. it"s our 3rd visit and more to come.
Every year my children and I go to the beach to celebrate the anniversary of the â€Žadoption. Each year we find a new place to stay on the beach. Well, that won't be happening â€Žanymore because we found the perfect house!! Sparkling Sands!! It was secluded and had its â€Žown beach access. You do have to walk down a small hill to get to the beach, but it was very â€Žeasy to get down. The Jacuzzi was amazing! It had jets everywhere and lights that you can turn â€Žon at night, which made it super fun. I think the kids spent more time in the Jacuzzi than they â€Ždid at the beach. The house was very well kept and very clean. It felt very homey and they â€Žthought of EVERYTHING to stock the house with. Even water and food dishes for your pet. â€ŽThe beds were even better than the Jacuzzi, if that's even possible. I slept like a baby and felt â€Žvery well rested by the time we left. We can't wait to go back again next year!â€Ž
Thank you for this awesome review! We are so happy to hear that you found the perfect spot for your annual family celebration. Its great that the kids enjoyed the beach and hot tub and that you were happy with the super cozy beds. From the well appointed interior to the large yard and easy beach access this is a perfect spot for families. We look forward to your next visit.
This is our second year staying at the Sparkling Sands property. We loved our stay and the house has everything you need. A big plus is having the garage and of course laundry facilities. The home is quite comfortable and relaxing. Thank you to the owners for sharing this home and for the easy experience working with Vacasa rentals.
Our family of 6 and 2 "furry" kids had a wonderful relaxing time. There was plenty of seating outside to enjoy the gorgeous ocean views. The hot tub was amazing! There is a gas bbq grill that was fully loaded with propane which was a nice surprise. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed. The grassy area in the back of the property was perfect for a game of croquet. We went for walks on the beach daily as it was easy beach access and we had perfect weather-actually in the 80's! We cannot wait to visit again!
It's great that your family and furry kids (love that!) had a relaxing time in this home and that you enjoyed the hot tub, bbq and the beautiful ocean views. Playing croquet in the back yard sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon with the family. Thanks for the feedback!
Nice location a few miles out of town with a yard for the kids to play in. Didn't use the hot tub, but it looks like a good idea! Everything seems well kept in the house and in good order. Overall very relaxing vacation spot.
excellent loved it thank you
the location and beach was wonderful. We have stayed at many homes on the Oregon Coast over the years and while this might not have been decorated as well as some, whatever it lacked was more than made up for in location, cleanliness, amenities(kitchen equipped, towels, linens, TV, etc). I would definitely recommend this home and would absolutely go back!
Loved our stay here. House was cosy and comfortable and well supplied. Def child friendly. Would stay here again!
We had a great time. We enjoyed the beach, the view and the wind sheltered deck. The dogs enjoyed the enclosed deck too. The kitchen was well stocked too.
This is a beautiful, clean, and romantic place to stay. We thoroughly enjoyed being able to go for long walks on the beach followed by scenic soaks in the hot tub. A creatively decorated rental with all the amenities of home. We loved it! We'll definitely be back.
Sparkling Sands. Wonderful house, move in and relax. Great for dogs with closed in patio. Needed a little attention in hallway bathroom. Appreciated the extras like spices and laundry soap.
Very comfortable home with sheltered patio, lawn, and easy access to beach. Comfortable bedrooms, well-stocked kitchen, ideal for small groups or families with kids. Pet friendly. Less than 5 minute drive to Yachats, but far enough away, that you have the beach almost entirely to yourself! Highly recommend!
Great house with excellent views and the beach access was right there and easy. Amenities were first rate, beds were good. All in all a great place to stay. We were a little disappointed with Yachats itself. Not much there, other than a few really nice galleries.
Great house and great location! We were even treated to fireworks on our lawn for the 4th of July holiday. It was a pleasant surprise to find everything that we wanted and needed for our stay including soap, laundry detergent and beach towels.
The beach house was so comfortable! The view was great and our family
Had a wonderful time! Thank you!!!
The property is beautiful. We had our dog with us and with the enclosed patio, this was the perfect spot. So relaxing. Our dog was on her best behavior, I think the sound of the ocean put a calming effect on all of us. This was one of our best vacations. The house is perfect location. If you have children or other familes with you, it is ideal as well. The nicest yard of all the homes. Having the enclosed attached garage was a real plus.We would return for sure. Thank you to everyone and the owners for making this property available.
This place is great! Very clean, well supplied, beautiful beach, huge protected oceanfront patio with nice hot tub. We had a wonderful time.
We had the best time of all the times we been to OR. The people at the mercantile store went above and beyond for my kite problem. Thanks to them. We may not tell anyone about our SECRET place.
We looked for a place that was not in town and away from the action. The house was clean and in good repair, the beach was fantastic as usual. Everything about this place was as good as advertised and I'm looking forward to coming again.
Great place and out of the way enough to give a sense of privacy;great ocean view and access!!
This is a lovely home right on the beach. It is comfortable and well furnished - good beds, great linens, excellently equipped kitchen, lots of paper supplies, very clean. Great views inside and out and very pet friendly. We've stayed in dozens of vacation rentals, and this is one of our top three, regardless of price (and this one is even reasonable!). We will definitely return when we can.
