Oceanfront, dog-friendly home w/ jetted tub, beach access & sweeping views

This dog-friendly, oceanfront vacation home in Yachats will make your Oregon Coast getaway a memorable one. You get the best of both worlds: ultimate relaxation with a jetted tub, sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, and immediate beach access, as well as nearby in-town conveniences.

Located right on the beach, just off Highway 101, this home is in a prime location for easy access to the sand and water, in-town shopping and dining, and short road trips to nearby coastal towns. You'll be just a bit north of the historic 804 Trail and a little over a mile from central Yachats.

Inside, this home has a fun vibe with tasteful beach decor and contemporary furnishings. Play your favorite music on the stereo while you unpack. After you're settled in, stoke a fire in the old-fashioned woodstove then lounge on the leather sofa with a good book and a glass of wine. Watch some Dish TV to unwind in the evenings, or make a selection from the VHS library. In the summer, move out to the deck that runs the length of the house and breathe in the salty sea-mist air while you take in sweeping ocean views.

Start every morning in the bright kitchen, which features standard appliances, including a dishwasher, light wood cabinets, and purple countertops. Enjoy your coffee at the breakfast bar for three while you make plans for your day. In the evening, create a mouthwatering seafood dinner and savor it with your guests at the chic dining table for six. If shrimp kabobs sound good to you, fire up the gas grill in the garage for an easy meal.

This two-bedroom, two-bath home accommodates up to six guests. Two dogs are also welcome for a small nightly fee. The master bedroom has a queen bed and several seating options, as well as large windows, deck access, and a full bath with a large jetted tub and stand alone shower. The second bedroom also has a queen bed, and there's a queen-size futon for an additional sleeping option. This home boasts a full laundry room with a washer and dryer, utility sink, and ample counter space for folding laundry.

Use the complimentary WiFi to check the tide schedule, and when it's too high to be on the sand, lounge on the stilted deck and enjoy the sensation of almost being on the water. When low tide comes, take a stroll along the water and find your way to the 804 Trail, which will take you to restaurants and shops in town. And if you're in town on a Sunday, be sure to visit the Yachats Farmers Market for fresh produce, arts and crafts, and live music.

When you want to get out and explore, drive about four miles south to Cape Perpetua for a look at the spouting and churning waters of Thor's Well, Cooks Chasm, and Devils Churn. Or head north about 22 miles to Newport for a visit to the Oregon Coast Aquarium and a tour of the famous Yaquina lighthouse. Of course, Yachats itself offers plenty of fun shops, varied restaurants, and eclectic activities, so you don't need to venture far if you don't want to.

Come to the Oregon Coast to relax and rejuvenate, and choose this lovely beach house for your home base. Get ready for your memorable Yachats getaway, and reserve your dates today.

We loved the beach access and the wonderful view of the ocean and beach!
Dana E. Sep 2019
The location could not have been better. Right on the beach, 5 minutes from Yachats. Perfect.

A few things have been fixed since earlier reviews: windows are new, dishwasher is either fixed or new, I found the master bed to be quite comfortable.

Needs to be addressed by prop managers: cleanliness in the kitchen. The drawers and cabinets were sticky and grubby. They were gross enough that I spent some time the first morning scrubbing them so they weren't so sticky. Someone needs to go in and really deep clean the drawers and cabinets, you can see the black grime where people put their fingers to open them. It's gross.

One old small wine glass in the house. We ended up using water glasses. Not a huge deal. Other than that there is everything you need in the kitchen. Even corn on the cob holders.

Needs to be addressed by owners:
uncomfortable chairs with filthy cushions at dining table need to be replaced or at least the cushions replaced. We didn't use the dining table much due to this.

Slider to the deck and the ocean needs a screen door. No one wants to shut that door against the ocean but there isn't a screen so flies got in. It wasn't terrible, we were there late enough in the year that the flies are dying down and there weren't mosquitos, earlier in the year this would be a real issue.

Nice features:
The jacuzi tub worked great, lots of hot water. At first I thought maybe they have a tankless hot water heater, but I finally ran it out after running a large wash load on hot, someone took a shower and I filled the soaking tub all at about the same time. So that was impressive. New dishwasher (or recently repaired dishwasher per earlier reviews) was nice and whisper quiet when running.

Lots and lots of towels. That was great! Beds were comfortable. A whole closet full of games! The outside grill was big, worked perfectly and is a really nice addition. Big deck was great, plastic chairs were meh but serviceable. A lounger or two out there would have been amazing.

A bigger TV would be a nice upgrade. Especially in the winter when people are inside more that would add to the home quite a bit.

All in all it was good. I'd consider staying here again if the cleanliness in the kitchen and the dining chair cushions were addressed, those are easy things to fix.

The location can't really be beat. Right on the beach, private, off the road, short beautiful drive to so many attractions. Yachats is charming and people are friendly.

Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Dana. We have addressed your comments with the local staff. We look forward to hosting you again soon.

Beautiful location. Quirky cute vacation home.
Chuck J. Aug 2019
Very scenic and quiet experience right on the beach. Great place for the dog too.
Jennifer B. Aug 2019
Everything!! Location is fabulous.
Karen N. Aug 2019
It was a beautiful home and the view of the beach and access to the beach was spectacular. Overall it was a "great" place to stay and I would definitely go back.
Ty W. Jul 2019
Awesome place to stay.
Kevin W. Jun 2019
The ocean was so close. The beach had easy access. The dogs were welcome and had a blast. Beach walks every morning. Sea lions, bald eagles, osprey, forests and seas. What a wonderful place.
Ray A. May 2019
We had high hopes for our stay but our expectations were exceeded. Had always wanted to stay close to the water and I don't think we could have gotten any closer. At high tide the ocean was 2-3 feet into the rocks below the deck. The weather ran the gamut during our stay, but even during the worst of it, we were warm, dry and enjoying the view and the sound of the surf. The ocean so filled our view that I often felt as though we were on a cruise ship.
The home was clean, well stocked and very comfortable. A short walk to town and lots to see and do in Yachats. We had a great time. Thank you for sharing your home.
Rosie P. May 2019
Great views, perfect beach, lovely house. Clean, comfy & bright. We will return! Thank you for sharing!
Terry M. Apr 2019
We loved our stay at Sandy Shores. The house was extremely comfortable and well appointed. The master bed and bath were huge! The views were absolutely awesome.
EDDIE M. Apr 2019
The location is awesome and the view is spectacular.
wynne m. Apr 2019
Great beach house. Very clean, well equipped. We stayed with one kid and two couples and there was plenty of space. The wood stove and big bathtub made for a fun relaxing stay.
Scott D. Apr 2019
Great location in Yachats with a view that cannot be beat. 2nd floor living space provided unobstructed views of the beach and ocean. Comfortable furniture, great fireplace, equipped kitchen, and an amazing deck looking over the Pacific. Getting on the beach was a few short steps away. You could not ask for a better place to stay on the water for a small family.
Tina F. Mar 2019
Comfortable beds and amazing location!
Jeff F. Mar 2019
My wife and I had an amazing anniversary week at Sandy Shores. The location and view is worth the money alone. The residence was clean and accommodating. The only downside would be the beds. It's probably time to invest in some more comfortable ones. When we arrived the floor was wet from a leaky sink but they came over the next morning and took care of it very promptly, while working around our schedule. Despite the beds, I'll still give a 5 star rating. Also, the beach had visitors but the location limited the numbers of them, which was very nice. The late check-out also worked perfect for us.

Thank you for a great stay!
Thomas S. Mar 2019
This bright, clean and spacious rental is right on the beach. The views are spectacular. Besides our daily visit from a great blue heron, bald eagle and harbor seal, we were lucky enough to see river otters and whales right from the living room couch. We will definitely be back.
Dustin C. Feb 2019
This home has the most amazing ocean views. The crashing of the waves lulled us to sleep each night, and every day the sunshine and sandy beach beckoned us to come out and play. We cooked meals in the home and had everything we needed. We took our pet with us and it was so nice to stay in a pet friendly home that didn't smell like a pet. The home was so clean! We will be back!
Mollie H. Feb 2019
This is a big, comfortable home. Right on the beach with easy access. Close enough to Yachats and Newport to easily explore. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Judi K. Jan 2019
WOW we all said in unison upon entering and seeing the ocean right at our beach house door! So close we could hear it talking to us! The view is unbeatable. House is lovingly appointed, very clean, all the games, DVD's you would need. Lots of blankets, etc to be comfy. Bedrooms were wonderful, especially the Master with a full view of the ocean. Kids loved the jetted tub! Wood Stove added to the charm and warmth~ for the winter days and nights. The Kitchen had all we needed to cook up a storm ~ and our wonderful beach house meals. Kids and dogs played on the beach and had a ball! Can't wait to return !
Karen G. Jan 2019
Overall the house was very nice, very clean and all amenities present. View was spectacular. Only issues were stairs into house and master bedroom had only a queen bed ( which was very uncomfortable). Location was great halfway between Florence and Newport. I would recommend this house to anyone without difficulty with stairs.
Donald L. Dec 2018
This house is right on the ocean. Stairs to enter the home could be challenging for those with physical challenges, but we loved everything about it. The kitchen is well equipped with everything in great condition and very clean.
John S. Nov 2018
As close to the ocean as can be.
Teresa F. Oct 2018
It was peaceful, welcoming, beautiful views and very relaxing. I would recommend it again.
Vickie C. Jul 2018
The view from the house was spectacular and the house was wonderful. The kitchen was well equipped, and plenty of extra blankets and pillows. The best vacation ever!
Kevin F. Jun 2018
If you are all about location, this is going to be tough to beat. Beautiful view - you can literally toss a ball off the porch to anyone on the beach -- it's a 15 second walk out your door and onto the sand. That is the highlight and we did take full advantage of it. The house is very worn - so we did no more than sleep in there. Needs some TLC - starting with new windows as they prevent you from seeing the beautiful view. If the weather wasn't perfect and we couldn't sit on the porch outside, we would have been very disappointed. If you just want a place to sleep, cook and spend all your time on the beach = great option.
Manager response:
We have performed a maintenance inspection on this home and are working with the owners on making improvements based on our findings. Thank you!
Scott E. Jun 2018
nice house with descent location
Samuel F. Jun 2018
The location on the beach was wonderful
Tonya C. Apr 2018
Beautiful view, literally 30 second walk to the beach & amazing jetted tub! Great place!!
Julie A. Apr 2018
From the incredible views to the comfortable home, everything was perfect!
Ben H. Apr 2018
we had an absolute wonderful time in Yachats in this home, we felt right at home in this small town and right on the water. We experienced great weather as well as rain as well as a storm and loved it all. Yachats gives you the small town feel but is close enough to larger towns if you need shopping or a busier atmosphere. We did travel some North & South but to do it again we would stay here again and plan to in the future. Home had everything we needed, we experienced everything as positive, nothing negative that I can remember or would want to point out. The only "minor" request would be having access to a garage door remote, but honestly not a big deal to go in the home and open from inside and then pull car in. We were all not wanting to leave and find ourselves looking forward to going again.
Greg G. Apr 2018
Pictures do not do this home justice! It is amazing! Being right on the beach is not only peaceful, but so serene! We loved the daily whale sightings and friendly little sea lion that hung out in the water . I will definitely come back to this place! I hated leaving!
John T. Mar 2018
Paradise, even for a stormy week.
Georganne C. Mar 2018
Great location off the main highway. Quiet & wonderful ocean views. Easy beach access once the tide goes out. Was perfect for 2 couples. House is well equipped. Even has an electric veggie steamer! Be sure to ask about the dumbwaiter & where garage door opener is!! We didn't discover it until after we hauled everything up the stairs.... So far, this is our new favorite Yachats vacation rental!
Robert B. Feb 2018
House was clean and everything worked as advertised, very comfortable. Yes, we would stay at Sandy Shores again.
Thomas M. Feb 2018
Bonney C. Jan 2018
The view from this property is stunning! Prepare to be blown away by the close proximity of the ocean. Its fabulous. The few things that need upgrading could be done with minimal expense and we hope by our next stay they will be addressed.
1. Upgrade kitchen prep knives
2. Fix the roaring oven fan
3. Put some rock on the muddy driveway
4. Fix the smoke alarm
Manager response:
We have been able to address all the items listed. We greatly appreciate this feedback!
Melanie S. Dec 2017
We stayed the 3-8th of December and the weather was wonderful, it was in the 60's every day no coat needed! We saw lots of sea lions right out in front of the house. We walked on the beach everyday, ate great food, and did a little shopping. The house is Absoutly perfect, we will be back.
Jennifer R. Nov 2017
This house is great. Great views and very comfortable. I have very little to complain about with this house. There is a Dumbwaiter you can use to assist in bring the luggage and groceries upstairs. The stairs to the beach are not difficult or too steep. The bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely and comfortable. We will definitely stay here again.
Loretta . Nov 2017
The beach was just steps away, you can hear the sounds of ocean all the time and the view was amazing. It has been 7 years since were at the coast so we really enjoyed our time there. The stairs to the house took some doing but we would stay there again in a heart beat.
Allison C. Oct 2017
This home is right on the beach, making it an ideal vacation spot. Our only complaint was that we felt the property could use a good deep cleaning.
Gary F. Oct 2017
Very nice oceanfront home, beautiful ocean views, VERY uncomfortable dinning
and living room furniture.
Donelle H. Sep 2017
We had relatives from Delaware with us and they were very impressed. The location can't be beat. Our shih tzus were fascinated with the deck. They spent a fair amount of time running from one end of the deck to the other. The master bedroom was great. I will come back someday.
Debra H. Sep 2017
Claire D. Sep 2017
This house in general is great. The view from the windows and deck could not be better. The kitchen is well equipped. The place was clean and tidy, although some furnishings and carpet are older. We had a few questions and concerns and Vacasa called us right back. We would like to see a few improvements to the place such as better chairs for the deck and a new grill, but nothing major that would make us not recommend it, and we stay at a lot of places. If you want to be right on the water, this place is really ideal with the path right there to the beach. The trail is right there as well that you can walk on for miles. It does sleep 6, but know that the futon couch is right in the living/great room if that is a concern. Yachats is a fantastic little town with a lot to do!
Craig L. Aug 2017
We arrived a little early around 3:30 so we drove around for a while. We came back at 4:00, check in time and they were still there cleaning. The property manager told us to bring our stuff in while they finished. He said he was short housekeepers and had to hire someone and help out. The housekeeper told me she had only been working for this company for an hour. I had to clean the sink while she stood there waiting to leave. The futon was cover in sand and when I tried to vacuum it up, the vacuum was completely full, the same one housekeeping was using on the carpet! The next morning the coffee maker wouldn't work and I shined a flashlight in it and have never seen anything that disgusting. I went to the local store and bought 2 gallons of vinegar and completely cleaned the coffee maker and it finally worked. When I went to run the dishwasher, there was only 1 packet of dish washing soap, so back to the store. The clothes washer didn't work very well and the lint trap on the dryer was full of sand. I usually don't nit pick but I paid a lot to rent this for a week. I expected more. After driving for 12 hours, I shouldn't have to clean before I can get settled.The house was definitely in better shape when we left than it was when we got there.
Cindy S. Jul 2017
Very nice.
MICHELLE K. Jul 2017
The house was very clean and comfortable, especially the large master bedroom with its access to the deck. The views were spectacular. We would have extended our stay if we could have.
Joanna P. Jul 2017
We spent a week in this cute, beach house. We loved the location and the fact that it wasn't right in town but you could still walk there (about a mile and a half). It had a nice beach access (although there were a couple of broken steps which could be easily maneuvered ). Overall the house was nice and functional, I would suggest some improvements though. The master bed is pretty hard and the house is in general need of some updating (including kitchen appliances, bed linens etc). BUT if you are more about the beach and the access and can give up some luxury, it is just fine.
Wanda B. Jul 2017
We were very pleased from the moment we arrived. Amazing views of the beach and the ocean from all the windows. Loved sitting on the deck and listening to the waves! Everything was clean and comfortable. We are so glad we stayed and would come back again!
Richard K. Jun 2017
The home has everything to make your stay comfortable. Top of the line appliances, comfortable beds, all gadgets in the kitchen, even a coffee grinder. The sea seems to be right underneath the house at times. Simply awesome. We found having a dumb waiter very convenient. The garage is tight but adequate. There are a few steps leading to the beach the rest is maneuvering over big rocks which was a little balancing act. There are stairs leading to the house which presented no problem. All in all, we recommend this home to anyone wishing a relaxing stay on the wild Oregon Coast. We would rent this home again.
Marc G. Jun 2017
We enjoyed our stay at Sandy Shores. We particularly enjoyed the view from the deck. We saw Sea Lions and Whales daily and could easily walk down to the beach during low tide and explore. Close to town and nice coastline trails. The house was comfortable and quiet area. Would definitely recommend and would consider coming again! Thanks!
Sergey Y. Apr 2017
If you're looking for quality family time, this is the perfect place. We're goiania stay here again!!!
Matthew W. Apr 2017
We really enjoyed our time at Sandy Shores. A great place to relax, play a board game, and enjoy the scenery. At high tide, the ocean literally splashes onto the rocks just below the deck. At low tide, beach access is great, but the sand always stays wet. Ready access to the 804 trail provides for an easy and scenic stroll toward Yachats. The downtown had everything we needed (grocery, bakery, brewery, fish monger). Looking forward to another visit.
Robert J. Mar 2017
House directly on the beach....and during high was 20 yards away. Great location and fun city.
We will stay here again.
Warren T. Mar 2017
Great view even in stormy weather! Clean, comfortable home with plenty of space to relax.
Gary H. Feb 2017
The home is wonderful, the spa tub was relaxing, the view couldn't be any better.
Linda V. Feb 2017
This cozy two bedroom house has spectacular views of the ocean which, on occasion at high tide, appeared to be right outside the patio door! The house was well appointed, very clean, and just right for the four of us. It does, however, require one to be able to climb stairs to get into the house. A dumbwaiter in the garage is an ingenious way to get heavy things into the house without carrying them up the stairs. All-in-all it is a place to which we may return in the future. Thank You.
