We were able to stay at this cozy beach house and loved every minute of it. During our stay we experienced a variety of weather: heavy rain and dark clouds, extremely strong winds, king tides, and warm sunshine with clear skies. The house was so versatile, inviting, and comfortable through it all. Literally steps to the sand and beach. We spent a lot of time building sandcastles and strolling along the endless beach front. The location of the house is perfectly centered between Yachats and Waldport/Newport along with all the other treasures of the OR Coast. Dog friendly! Kid friendly! Adult friendly! What more could you want? We will definitely be staying again!
Jayne V. Jan 2022
The location, view and dog friendly were our top 3 priorities. We would rent this home again.
Irvine Electro-Optics LLC - Mitchell H. Jan 2022
The house is turn key. View is beautiful; the house is beachfront with large grass area for dogs.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to provide your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay, and we are happy to have acquired this home into the Vacasa family. We look forward to hosting you for another pleasant getaway in the future!
John A. Nov 2021
The stay was great but the house was unlocked when we arrived... Not a safe way to enter a rental house.
Manager response:
John, thank you for your review. We sincerely apologize for any security concerns you had during your stay. We encourage guests to reach out should any issues arise as we are happy to quickly assist. We take guest safety seriously and appreciate your feedback as a means to improve. We hope to host you again soon.
Sharon B. Sep 2021
We enjoyed the house very much. It had easy access to the wide beach (where you could walk for miles) and a great view of the ocean from the living area. House was well supplied. Appreciated that it was buffered from the noise of the highway by trees. We did have trouble with the keypad access code and obtaining a working code.
Brendan D. Aug 2021
House is a dump. Must be 50 years old, and barely touched or renovated since construction. Vacasa hidden fees were an unpleasant surprise for sure. Upon pulling back comforter to retire after long day, there was disgusting splotches of god knows what on the white sheets. Was pretty obvious sheets had not been changed. Second bed had hairs in the sheets. This essentially ruined the stay for my wife and sister in law. Gross house. Move on. Hot tub and beachfront location were only positives.

Adrienne C. Aug 2021
My family had a wonderful time at this beach house. This house is in a great location. Peaceful, quiet, safe, and convenient and beachfront. The house has very comfortable beds, comfy couches and the hot tub was a huge plus. It is lacking in the kitchen as far as cooking utensils go. It's time to trash what's there and make a quick IKEA run and get what's needed to actually prepare meals. The dresser in the master bedroom is unusable due to the mildew smell. A little frustrating while staying for an extended period. I've also stayed in other houses that have a lot more movies, games, and puzzles. That would be a nice to promote more family time. If those few things were addressed and fixed I would stay here again.
Manager response:
Hello Adrienne, We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. We passed your comments along to our local manager to review and we appreciate guest’s preferences as a means to continually improve. We look forward to hosting your next stay!
Robin H. Jul 2021
Took over an hour to get the correct code to enter the house. If Adam wasn't diligent, we'd still be out in the cold wind. House is fine. Great beach. TV dish didn't work and Verizon is only 1 bar at the best of times. Great location, clean but really need better communication and certainly instructions to get the TV working. Adam tried to no avail. Hope Adam gets a raise, he is great. Not so sure about Vacasa.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us, Robin. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the location, but regret that you encountered difficulties with the code and the TV amenity. We truly appreciate you calling us immediately, and for allowing our local staff the opportunity to assist in a resolution. Our local manager is working with the homeowner to address both of these issues to ensure a better quality of experiences for our future guests. We hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future!

We had a wonderful relaxing vacation at Sparkling Sands VRBO. The house seems to have all manner of kitchen items (including coffee filters), well stocked bathroom towels, washer & dryer, sand toys, etc. There are several personal touches that make the house feel like home. The binoculars are nice personal touch, the fireplace cozy, and the beds and couches comfy. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub, and the quick walk to the sandy beach. The house is also a good launching point to visit several nearby areas such as Cape Perpetua, Yaquina Head Natural Outstanding Area, Sea Lion Caves, the Oregon Dunes, etc. The only two negative takeaways from our vacation were 1. we couldn't make the ice maker work, and 2. after watching a DVD we couldn't make the cable TV work. Otherwise, the house is perfect for a family and we absolutely would book again.

Cathy H. May 2021
Very quite and private. Access to beach very easy. We had a great time. Everything you could ask for in a beach house. Wish we could of stay longer. Enclosure great for pets. Loved the hot tub!
Jeff G. May 2021
Everything was fantastic - Only complaint is that we had to eventually leave!
Nathan B. Apr 2021
Great house and hot tub was great. Dogs had a blast
Daniel M. Dec 2020
Amazing stay!!
Robert C. Dec 2020
The home worked very nice for a family group of 6 people. Grandpa and grandma, Daughter and Son in law, 2 children. Nice location and view. Hot tub worked well.
Kathryn B. Oct 2020
Great location close to the beach. Nice, cozy house.
Denise D. Aug 2020
The quick access to the beach was great, comfy beds, well stocked kitchen (but needs more spices!) If you're allergic to dogs it might be an issue. There was alot of dog hair everywhere. Overall great place to stay.
Michael I. Aug 2020
This home has a lot of great amenities. We especially enjoyed the Dining and Living Rooms with wonderful views of the ocean. There are a few things in the home that need attention (we have reached out to Vacasa about these), but overall, we had a very pleasant experience.
Jill A. Jul 2020
This was a wonderful house with easy beach access. It was perfect for our family and our dog as it had a back porch that was fenced in and a lot of grass area to plan. The views are amazing the property is private and accommodating. We definitely plan to stay here again! My only complaint had to do with the cleaning service. I understand the concept of white sheets for a clean crisp look however stains show up really easy and it’s unsettling to see stains on the sheets. The cleaning service should identify that and replace the sheets. Also there was food pieces left in the microwave, so that wasn’t cleaned in between guests and I’m not sure how clean the floor was as there was onion peels left on the kitchen floor between the stove and the corner cabinet; If swept and mopped thoroughly that would’ve been seen.
Julie H. Jun 2020
We really enjoyed our stay at this home. The location is amazing and the home was well stocked and comfortable. The only reason for 4 stars is that the carpet really needs to be professionally cleaned. When we checked in, there were pet stains on the carpet which really need to be cleaned. Other than that the home was clean and nice and we enjoyed our stay!
Cheryl R. Jun 2020
Comfortable home with spectacular ocean view.
Miki H. Jun 2020
We have stayed on the beach many times. This was probably the best house we have stayed at! The fully fenced sun deck was a great plus with our dog! We could keep the door open to get fresh air and not have to worry about the dog running back down to the beach. The house fit our family well. The beds were very comfy. The kitchen was fully equipped. We cooked a lot at the house. The grill on the deck was amazing!! We would love to stay here again!!!
Leigh J. Jun 2020
BOOK THIS HOUSE! It's perfect, we loved everything about it and so did our dog!
Ellen R. Mar 2020
nice clean home right on the beach. grassy area for dog. lots of wind protection for hanging outside. hot tub very nice. Kitchen well supplied with clean dishes, pots and pans, In this time of corona, we did expect additional hand sanitizer but did not find it. A bench by the door would help keep sand out of house. Right now there is no where to sit and remove shoes. The fire pit had lots of cigarette butts and really should be cleaned up. I still would highly recommend Sparkling Sands.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Ellen! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We will work with our team and complex management to identify areas for improvement. We look forward to hosting you again!
julie h. Mar 2020
Quiet and sparkling clean accomodations, tastefully decorated, and great beach access with view!
Cathy F. Mar 2020
The house has a wonderful ocean view and is spacious and welcoming. The deck outside was perfect for us and the hot tub was a plus. The location is great just outside of Yachats.
laina W. Sep 2019
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.
Shelley C. Sep 2019
Loved everything about this place, location, size, view, comfort, hot tub, friendly town, dog friendly, we had the best time!
anthony r. Aug 2019
Would give it 4.5 stars if possible- great location, had a great time!
Heather F. Aug 2019
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!
Rebecca R. Jul 2019
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.
Kerry C. Jul 2019
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.
Kari M. May 2019
This is such a great home. . Love that it is dog friendly. We had an excellent time on the beach.
Sue S. May 2019
Loved the location! The house was spotless. Hot tub was wonderful on the beautiful starlit nights. We will be back!
david e. Feb 2019
Jason H. Feb 2019
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!
Zacharie W. Dec 2018
The location was perfect.
Barbie P. Oct 2018
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!
Kathy D. Sep 2018
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.
chad g. Jul 2018
It was close enough to town. But when you went outside to enjoy the beach, you had it all to yourself.
Gabriel B. Jul 2018
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!
Jerald A. Jun 2018
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.
Manager response:
We have taken measures to keep the moisture down and get rid of the mildew smell. Thank you!
Linda S. Jun 2018
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.
Brian K. Apr 2018
Kim I. Mar 2018
The property was beautiful. Lovely setting for my husbands birthday
Tammy H. Mar 2018
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.
Melody K. Dec 2017
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.
Barbara A. Nov 2017
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.
Anthony I. Oct 2017
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.
David L. Sep 2017
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.
Stacy S. Sep 2017
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.
Nancy L. Aug 2017
Kristine H. Aug 2017
Great beachfront getaway! The house inside and out is better than the photos. Dog friendly and clean! Would definitely stay there again!!!
Paul T. Jul 2017
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.
Cathy And Tom R. Jun 2017
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 !
Pam K. May 2017
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.
Maggie M. Apr 2017
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.
Brian K. Mar 2017
We have stayed at many properties in the Yachats area and this is our GO TO spot if it is available
Bruce B. Jan 2017
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.
Antoinette A. Jan 2017
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.
Rick G. Dec 2016
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!
Daniel M. Dec 2016
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.
Jeanna A. Nov 2016
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.
Tammy H. Oct 2016
This house is spectacular! The beach is literally right across the yard. You can feel the stress melting away!
Rex L. Sep 2016
The house, location and condition, were just what we hoped for. We recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet get a way.
Kristal P. Aug 2016
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!
Geraldine L. Aug 2016
The views were spectacular and easy access to the beach.
Nancy L. Jul 2016
We enjoyed our time so much it was hard to leave. We hope to come back again!
James S. Jul 2016
We did not want to leave.
Jeff P. Jul 2016
Can't beat the location, house is nice. We have stayed here 5 times, can't beat the view.
Michael P. Jun 2016
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.
Elaine W. Jun 2016
Wonderful setting, great accommodations, easy access to beach, kitchen beautifully equipped. I would happily return.
Morgan T. May 2016
Nice quite home on the beach, nice view of the ocean
SUSAN T. Apr 2016
Wonderful location, very comfortable and pet friendly
Branden S. Apr 2016
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.
Sheila O. Apr 2016
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.
James C. Mar 2016
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.
Brian K. Mar 2016
Awesome place..
Amy P. Feb 2016
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.
Jane S. Jan 2016
Spent Christmas at this beautiful home. Quiet, clean, comfortable. Terrific place!
Bob And Karen B. Nov 2015
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.
Connie T. Sep 2015
This house has ithe all, enjoyed the hot tub and listening to the ocean!!
Patricia B. Sep 2015
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.
Don D. Aug 2015
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!
Susan F. Jun 2015
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.
Katie F. Apr 2015
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!
Brenda J. Apr 2015
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.
Manager response:
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.
Susan B. Mar 2015
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!!
Shelley G. Mar 2015
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!
Rodney S. Mar 2015
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.
Manager response:
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!
Dick S. Feb 2015
Wonderful place! We'll be back
Nancy C. Jan 2015
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.
Sharon H. Nov 2014
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.
Heather D. Jun 2014
Every year my children and I go to the beach to celebrate the anniversary of the ‎adoption. Each year we find a new place to stay on the beach. Well, that won't be happening ‎anymore because we found the perfect house!! Sparkling Sands!! It was secluded and had its ‎own beach access. You do have to walk down a small hill to get to the beach, but it was very ‎easy to get down. The Jacuzzi was amazing! It had jets everywhere and lights that you can turn ‎on at night, which made it super fun. I think the kids spent more time in the Jacuzzi than they ‎did at the beach. The house was very well kept and very clean. It felt very homey and they ‎thought of EVERYTHING to stock the house with. Even water and food dishes for your pet. ‎The beds were even better than the Jacuzzi, if that's even possible. I slept like a baby and felt ‎very well rested by the time we left. We can't wait to go back again next year!‎

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.

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!

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 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.

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.
Branden S. Apr 2013
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.

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.
