The views were spectacular!
Had a great time at this cabin! Cute path down to the beach. Stay here, you won’t regret it!
My wife and I Had a wonderful time at the Shelly cabin, we have only one complaint, the Windows on the outside were dirty and it was a challenge to get Beautiful scenery photos of the Ocean. Other than that it was a wonderful stay.

The best part, besides being on the coast, was the privacy! We're not into being around people, so the fact we had the whole place to ourselves for our honeymoon was blissful!
I loved being oceanfront even though the beach wasn’t really accessible. The views were beautiful and it’s a nice cozy cabin!
The cabin was spacious for two people. Very well stocked with everything we could need. The big windows in the front were perfect for watching the ocean.
The main complaint was the “beach access”. Pretty sketchy the first few days. “Stairs” made out of rocks and driftwood the first couple days. But the storm completely washed them away and it was about a 5 foot drop that was muddy and hard to climb.
But once down in the beach, we’re pretty much has it to ourselves.
It is an awesome spot, but the beds are very hard and they need new furniture in living room, but overall give it a 4.5 rating
Thank you for your review, Theresa. We are happy that you enjoyed your time at one of our homes. We appreciate your feedback as a means to continually improve. We cant wait to host you again soon!
The view from the two front windows is breathtaking and the cabin has everything you need to be comfortable.
The privacy .. the property .. the Shack down by the bluff above ocean (we sat and stood in there for hours with drinks, listening to Christmas Music off our I-Phones and to the rain pour down on it's roof staying mostly dry .. LOVED THE SHACK .. the firepits (we cooked dogs and marshmellows in the RAIN .. favorite is firepit right above ocean but might consider moving it away from that tree .. in Summer that could be a fire hazard BUT DON'T GET RID OF IT) .. the beach (please keep your access trail, maybe put posts up alongside the very bottom portion so something to hang onto making it down that last stretch) .. oh and the house ... so much has been done inside to improve it .. just one more suggestion, a new couch with a Chaisse Lounge and Easy Chair pull out would just finish the place off perfect so we could nap on it, read on it, watch Christmas movies on it, look out the windows on it .... I have booked 11 nights already in Mid December 2022 just ahead of NEXT Christmas Eve and I WOULD CONTRIBUTE $200 to a new couch if you get a really comfy one ... True Offer. A great couch and great easy chair (which these days can easily be part of the couch) would totally take this place over the moon.
Amazing views and beach access!
We enjoyed this cosy home with beautiful views and a great history.
Some minor disappointments but overall, we had a nice stay. It is a great location with Yachats a short drive North, and Florence a short drive South. Unfortunately, the beach was not accessible from the house.
Thank you for staying with us, Sandra! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay! We apologize for any disappointment related to the home. Please know our guest services line is 24/7 if you ever have any questions or concerns. We look forward to hosting you for another pleasant getaway!
Lovely spot. Isolated, No place near the cabin to walk as it's right off Highway 101. A drive 9 miles north into Yachats, a nice town. Too bad the EV charger there didn't work. I reported my problem to the Information Office.
You don’t often have your expectations exceeded in great measure. Truly, the pictures do not do this location justice. Loved the cabin and it’s history, the view unparalleled. The walk along the wild and wonderful beach, unforgettable.
Loved the cabin. Would have really loved a path to the beach. Need to improve directions saying to turn left into the drive way. There are no signs. Cabin was clean and loved it being in the middle of nowhere!!
The Shelley Family Cabin is super cute and cozy with amazing views right along the beach. Even though it’s right off the highway and right down the driveway from Oregon House it feels peaceful and private. The kitchen is stocked with all the dish/cookware you will need plus spices. Super well stocked and tidy overall. The beach access will need to fixed, otherwise a perfect place to stay!!
Privacy, window view of ocean, comfortable bed, good amenities, kitchen supplies, etc.
Would like a rocking chair. Area rug in living room area. The gate to the beach was locked with no explanation about beach access from cabin.
This large "tiny house" is perched on a cliff in a coastal forest overlooking the ocean. Two great viewing windows in the house offer the chance to forget time as you can just sit and watch time pass by. The cabin is up-to-date and very comfy with a well-equipped kitchen (the river stone shelf in the kitchen bay window is beautiful). We are going to go back regularly.
Shelley cabin was an awesome ocean view loft cabin with great views of the surf. Sadly the steps to the beach were not useable and few items in the cabin not functioning and could use a better mattress. Great place to explore both north and south from.
Hi, Dean! Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We have removed the advertised beach access from the listing since we do not know when the steps will be repaired. We hope to see you again!
The cabin was cozy and a perfect place to weather a coastal storm. Good views of the ocean, well stocked, and very clean. The beach access was washed out and no safe path to the beach from the property. Maybe it can be repaired in the future. Lots of hiking and sights near by. Sad to leave!
The cabin is lovely, conveniently located, all with a beautiful view.
Unfortunately, weather had cause a landslide and there is no longer beach access so we were instructed to drive to the crowded public beach down the road (not so great). Also, especially during pandemic, it wasn't as clean as I had expected. Sticky glass rings on coffee table and window sills, and grease residue on stove hood. All in all a terrific location, very nice house.
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Jana! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and the convenient location of the cabin. We apologize if the cleanliness of the home left something to be desired, and we will follow up with our housekeeping team to see that future cleans are completed to our standards. We hope to host you again!
Serene and beautiful spot. Comfortable and well-appointed cabin. Just perfect!!
the views from the living room are amazing! The beach access is awesome!
This home is beautiful! So clean and cozy. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need to prepare a nice meal. (No cutting board) The view of the ocean is perfect. The path to the ocean is a tiny bit rough but well worth it. There is a small set of stone steps leading into the beach, quite narrow and steep. The highlight of my stay was the horseback beach rides at C&M stables, about 15 minutes away from the cabin. This place is a perfect get away destination for peace and seclusion. I will definitely stay again!
This is an amazing location and that's why I gave this place 2 stars. Otherwise, it would have received a 1 star. We had to check out at 10am even though our kids had school and needed wifi until 11am. We were refused an 11am check out related to stringent cleaning practices yet upon arrival, the countertop in the kitchen was dirty and there was hair in the shower. In addition, the master bed is unforgiving to your back and just so uncomfortable. There were zero mattress or pillow protectors. The furniture desperately needs to be replaced along with the rug in the living room. We spent a lot of money and had higher expectations. We stayed here 3 years ago and all the furniture is still the same! Dirty, poor customer service & we won't book with vacasa anymore. But this location is amazing.
Hi! Thank you for your review. We’re sorry to hear that the home was in this condition upon your arrival - please know that this is not the regular standard for our properties. We have implemented a Premium Clean program so we can continue to strive to provide our guests with fulfilling experiences; We apologize for any missteps, as it is never our intention to disappoint. We hope to have the opportunity to better impress you in the future.
This remote cabin is so adorable and the perfect place to relax and unwind! It’s fully stocked and close to town for any quick needs. Would definitely recommend!
This cozy cabin was a wonderful “base” for our exploration of the central coast! Perfectly situated between quaint towns of Yachats and Florence, near the amazing coastal features of spouting horns, Lighthouse’s, capes and beaches. We also enjoyed just hanging out at the property, enjoying a campfire at sunset on the cliff overlooking the beach! Super cozy with a well stocked kitchen, comfy beds, loft for room to spread out. Loved it!
Thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback and have notified the local manager of your suggestions. We hope to host you again soon!
The home is extremely clean and equipped with anything one might need. There are even chairs and a portable table for outdoor use in the yard shed. The interior decor is recently updated and tasteful. You can hear and see the ocean from the house. There is a nice pathway to access the beach. (The last few steps are a bit tricky but there is a rope to help. The three 50ish year olds in our party made it just fine.) I give this accommodation an A+ and would be happy to stay here again.
We absolutely loved our stay at the Shelley Cabin. It was charming and cozy, and extremely clean. It had everything we needed, and a gorgeous view of the ocean. It's a little tricky maneuvering the trail down to the beach, but it's not that far, and it was well worth a little effort. This is a gem of a cabin, and we would definitely stay here again.
This place is really special. If you love being in the woods and being at the ocean; with this home you don't have to choose one or the other. Despite having another property nearby and its location directly off of a busy road, it really does feel private with little background noise besides the ocean. There is no reception for phone calls, however, wifi works great. I was worried about the trail being treacherous, its not; and I'm not that fit. Just wear sensible shoes. A few things I will mention: the loft windows were too dirty to enjoy, when we were there anyway and the shower is very slow draining, you'll be standing in water. Another thing that is helpful to know, not being familiar with the area at all, is that if you're concerned about were to pick up groceries or get gas, the town of Florence just a short distance to the south has everything you would need in that regard and Yachats proper to the north has a smaller grocery as well.
Hi, Andrea! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We have worked with the septic company to get the drain better. We will work on the loft windows as soon as we have an opening. Thank you!
This is a beautiful home on an amazing property. It is clean and comfortable and well-equipped.
One of the best views possible from a secluded cabin on the Oregon Coast
We absolutely loved this property, location and all the amenities it offered. It was the perfect spot and the walk down to the beach made you feel like it was your own private beach..which we had mostly to ourselves.
We loved the beautiful ocean views and 🌊sounds from the cabin...though 101 is nearby, traffic sounds wasn't an issue here.
We loved the 🔥 pit and hammock, the solid folding chairs from the shed, a decent gas BBQ with utensils, wood and kindling to use left over from a previous party. It was all good and especially so when the wind wasn't a factor.
We loved the beach and the feeling of having it to ourselves most of the time. This might just be the best feature of all that this place offers along with the great views from above through the trees.
We appreciated the well equipped kitchen (with one noteworthy exception being that only two teaspoons were to be found though there are plenty of larger size spoons) and the excellent
Thank you Shelley family for sharing your cabin -- for giving your place very good attention to many simple details that so many places fall short of providing. Bravo!
This little gem was exactly what my daughter and I wanted to spend our time on the Coast chillaxin'. Perfectly and modernly appointed, meticulous and comfortable. We loved the firepit, the sunset area (we took our chairs down each night) and having our own beach. So quiet and peaceful. We loved visiting Florence and Yachats for lunch and sightseeing, but were always so happy to return to this oasis. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to make a great meal in the comfort of your own place. We loved it here and appreciated every moment we spent there.
The Shelley Family Cabin is locates in a beautiful location with direct access to the beach. We mostly had the beach to ourselves. The home was very comfortable, clean and well equipped.
Tiny cabin with a great view and privacy
The Shelley House stands apart from other places we’ve stayed at over the years. Their home is very comfortable with a well stocked kitchen (pots, spices, etc) and furnishings. You can easily tell this is a home not a haphazardly thrown together rental. The beach views are incredible. My favorite morning routine included sitting at the windows watching the tide and local birds fly by (even saw a turkey vulture). The surrounding area is a beautiful lush garden paradise with native flowers, trees, and plants. A stunning path as you walk down to the beach. Most of all it’s quite. We pretty much had the beach to ourselves. Tide pools are nearby and enough beach to walk at least a mile spying plenty of seashells and agates. Highly recommend the Shelley Family home as your go to relaxation oasis!
We loved staying at the Shelley cabin! The views, decor, location were impeccable. The best part? Not having to clean upon arrival. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve had to clean a vacation rental but Shelley’s cabin was spotless!
Great location! Short drive to several beaches between Florence and Yachats.
Wonderful site with a forest framed ocean view, beach access and privacy. Immaculate space and easy check in. We'll be back!
They had everything you needed for relaxing visit a ten minute drive to yachats
Wonderful get away. Private, peaceful, relaxing
Loved the seclusion and relaxing atmosphere. Cabin is comfortable and obviously taken acre of with love.
Views, cuteness and a great beach. Yes, it's rough to get directly on the beach but totally worth the dirt on my jeans.
We arrived for a week long stay to a very clean, and fresh smelling cabin. So much hiking to be done within a 10 minute drive north or south of the cabin had us plenty busy the entire trip. We did find the shopping, and grocery selection, to be better in Florence, and worth the extra few miles. The food, and drinks, at the Yachats Brewery were outstanding. The trek down to the beach from the cabin is steep, but so worth it as we had the beach to ourselves 75% of the time we were down there(ever night at sunset). Along the beach we found sand shrimp, baby dungenous crab, hermit crab, sea stars at low tide, urchins, mole crabs, sand dollars, etc. One previous renter had stated the cabin lacked a DVD player, but upon further inspection we realized it is built into the back of the television. We had an absolutely fantastic time at this cabin, and fully intend to return once our 2 boys are old enough to enjoy the hiking and beach exploration!
Location was very nice great views and close to Florence and Yachats. Clean and orderly.No DVD player, fireplace was electric heater with colored lights. Perfect for 2 people who want to get away. Last few steps to beach are very difficult but once there very private.TV only Netflix was available. Enjoyed our stay 5 nights.
Loved the accommodations and view! Enjoyed quite walks on the beach.
Incredible views from the cabin and the backyard fire pit. The view from sitting at the dining room table was my absolute favorite. My grown son and I spent two nights and wish it could’ve been longer. We are already talking about our return trip. It was so peaceful and had everything you could possibly need. We roasted marshmallows by the fire as the sun set. We enjoyed putting together one of the puzzles, working on it on and off all weekend. And we really enjoyed our time spent on the beach. The walk is steep and I wouldn’t recommend it for elderly people. We had to lift some big rocks and carry over to the foot of the path in order to get back up. It seems the path had washed away at the end and was steep and muddy. The rocks worked great as steps and we went up and down multiple times. Thank you for sharing the Shelley cabin. Can’t wait to return!!!
The darling cabin was absolutely perfect in every way! From the beautiful views, cozy feel, and had everything we needed! Some days we just stayed in and enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets and beautiful coastline. Will definitely be back! Thank you!
Location, privacy, being in the woods just above the ocean. The little cabin is cute and cozy. Would have loved a few more nights.
I is 9 miles to the nearest town Yachats which is very cute but no gas station.
We loved the location...only about a 10 minute drive south of Yachats where everything is available (except gas) but felt like a world away with peaceful setting and almost private beach. We loved the interior of the cabin and the short walk down to the beach was very easy other than the last few steps. Disappointed a little that the beautiful fireplace was not a functioning fireplace. Also that the slow draining bathroom sink that had been mentioned in other reviews over the past few months had not been cleared out. Very nice cabin overall.
Thank you for your review, William! We apologize for the disappointment you experienced with the fireplace. The slow drain has been taken care of. We hope to see you again!
What is there not to love about this place. The views from inside the home are just as amazing as sitting outside around the campfire. Thank you for sharing your amazing cabin.
I was looking for solitude and this cabin offers it.
Comfortable, private, nice kitchen, beautiful views from inside and from great outside space to hang out in; direct, private path to a great beach.
Super cute and clean home with charming character. All the amenities we needed. Spectacular views of the ocean and sunset. The beach access is slightly steep, but was very doable for my family. We had the beach to ourselves - which was awesome.
Our only issue was the bathroom sink drain was plugged so couldn't use it. I left a note for cleaning crew to repair.
My only suggestion would be to add blinds to the living room windows... the early evening sun was blinding when trying to watch a movie.
We were a family of 4 and this was just the perfect size. Can't imagine trying to fit any larger family tho.
Thanks for sharing such a wonderful home.
Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback and suggestions as we strive to always provide the best possible stay for all of our guests. We hope to host you again soon!
This is a perfect little cabin for a couple who need to get away. I'm about to deploy again to Afghanistan and needed to spend some alone time with my bride of 36 years. Its secluded but close enough to Yachats or Florence that the location is ideal. It's awesome to walk out of a forest onto the beach. Mind you, the trail down is challenging but worth every step. We couldn't have asked for a better trip.
We loved our time at the Shelley Family Cabin. It’s well equipped with lots of options. Such a beautiful view close to town. Watching the sunset, laying in the hammock, going to the beach and having a bonfire were our favorites!
We will be planning a trip back.
Private, private, private! You can not find a place like this very easily. The cottage was beautiful, the private Pacific Ocean beach can’t be beat for beach combing, sea caves to explore, as well as tidal pools at low tide!
Great location, wonderful floor plan, everything you need and more, clean, 12 out of 10 rating.
We loved the view, we loved the cozyness of the cabin and the sound of the crashing waves below.
It does not get any better than this!!
We had a great time and I will be coming back!!
A couple of thoughts-the drain is running pretty slow, may want to check it.
Be wonderful if folks could use the beach access next door while the trail is being fixed...we were going to, but were concerned about breaking any rules...
It's exactly like everyone says - it takes your breath away. We had a truly wonderful time.
Perched on cliff above the Pacific in a grove of evergreens. The Cabin is very well made and exceptionally sound proof. The Cabin would be a bit challenging for tall people [ over 6 ft] as the shower and low slung beds are a bit of an issue. The kitchen accessories are excellent. There is Netflix but no cable/satellite TV. The WIFi is very good and fast. There is a lot of privacy. The route down to the beach is a challenge but well worth it. Overall the furniture is not plush but very functional. I would encourage owners to get some better beds. We would give it a 5 star if the beds were a higher quality.
Location is key! Besides that, it was clean, warm, homey and perfect for our retreat from the beach to the beach! ( I live in Gearhart, OR) Hope we can return soon!!
I hesitate to give this cabin the rating it deserves because I don’t want everyone else to book it when we want to visit. The views are gorgeous, the space is comfortable, and the kitchen has everything we need. The path to the beach is a bit steep (not for everyone). Not a complaint as we had no issues, just the only thing I could caution others about. We’ve stayed here twice and are making plans to return.
My husband and I stayed for two nights in mid-November and loved the location. It has a cabin-feel, is located a short drive out of town, and is up-to-date, sparkling-clean, and very comfortable. Very much enjoyed our stay. Would highly recommend renting a crab boat in Waldport and going crabbing, cooking up our catch in the house and enjoying our crab dinner was a highlight of our trip!
The home is small and cozy, has everything to make it comfortable, and the surf is always playing in the background.
Very nice place! Beautiful view.
This cabin is beautiful and the view of the ocean is incredible. Cannot say enough good things about our stay. We would definitely stay here again.
The cabin was perfect for our getaway. The sunsets were amazing. We loved falling asleep listening to the waves crash on the beach. It was a short drive to many attractions and beautiful views. We did not want to leave!!! Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful cabin.
Clean, comfortable and cozy.
We had a wonderful weekend stay at the Shelley Cabin. It felt secluded with its own private access to the beach, but was conveniently located near many coastal sights and hiking trails. The cabin itself was very clean and had a beautiful view of the ocean. We also enjoyed the Netflix access at night while we we lounged (though we had a couple of minor connectivity issues). Overall, we really enjoyed the cabin and appreciate the care the family has taken to maintain such a lovely property.
The private and tranquil setting, practically it's own little paridice with the beautiful beach and tide pools to explore just out of the back door!
The remoteness of the beach setting.
Looking through the looking glass!! This place is amazing for children and adults!! We will be back! The view is amazing a quiet little place for being close to hwy 101. With no cell service be prepared to be off the grid for your stay !! Perfect and great way to reconnect with loved ones we will be back .
Our stay here was just fantastic, we loved the cabin the moment we walked in. The view is amazing, the property was extremely clean and well taken care of, there was plenty of room for our family of 4, and the Roku with Netflix was a nice touch that kept our daughters occupied during downtime.
The walkway down to the secluded beach was great, had a great time exploring the beach. I don't normally write reviews but I felt this property deserved it, it was very clear that the owners put a lot of love and care into this cabin and reading the family history behind it was also really neat, definitely would visit again.
We loved this cabin so much!!! Such a great location with wonderful sunset views and essentially the entire beach to ourselves, made for a wonderful getaway.
The cottage was industrial meets shabby chic .. It had all of the necessary items for relaxation and comfort .. the best part was the views from both picture windows drawing your eyes and ears to the ocean .
We also noted that the welcoming instruction book from the owners was super helpful and thoughtfully presented.. I
highly recommend any amount of time you are able to spend here..
Beautiful views. Loved walking on the private beach. Cabin was clean and beautifully decorated! Would love to come back.
We loved that there was a fairly private beach. The views from the cabin were fabulous, the sound of the waves both soothing and exhilarating. A short drive to many of the Oregon coast highlights ....Cape Perpetua, Devil’s Churn, sand dunes, Darlingtonia State Natural Area, sand dunes, etc etc.
The cabin was perfect for our laid back visit.
It would have been nicer if there was a window to open for some fresh air, but for such a beautiful location, it was not a deal-breaker.
My only complaint would be that the Oregon House in the adjacent lot has a spotlight on the nearby building, that was on every night (for security I assume) and it shone right at the Shelly Cabin, which detracted from the night sky and otherwise remote loveliness of our place. Perhaps they could be contacted and asked to direct the spotlight away from the Shelly Cabin site, if they must have it on all night.
Loved our stay. Thank you. This is the second time we have used Vacasa and are very happy with your service so far.
Cottage was so peaceful and had everything we needed! The most beautiful view!
Everything about this cabin was perfect. Well-designed, great amenities, and a beautiful location!!
We will absolutely be staying here again!!
It rained all weekend, but cabin offered us a great view of the ocean.
Beautiful location to explore Central Oregon Coastline. Cozy cabin perfect for weekend getaway for 2! Secluded beach was serene. Views of Pacific are outstanding and ocean breeze was refreshing. Would come back to Shelley Cabin!
the baseboard heaters are mounted above the windows-this makes no sense-the floor area stays cold and the loft is an oven
Lovely location, fabulous views, and all the amenities and little extras I could hope for. Would most definitely stay there again.
The cabin, view and the entire property is spectacular! My husband and I live in Wisconsin and my daughter and her boyfriend live in Portland and we were all very lucky to be able to stay at this lovely cabin for two nights. We left for a little while to drive the spectacular coastline but couldn’t wait to go back to the cabin. Everything is provided for enjoying meals there, whether you want to eat inside or outside. The view is wonderful wherever you are! We were also blessed with beautiful weather! Thank you for sharing your family cabin!
Cute little house with a scenic ocean view. Close to both Yachats and Florence. Several worthwhile parks nearby including Heceta lighthouse.
This was a fabulous spot. Beautifully spacious yet cozy design in the cabin. The grounds were amazing and the beach access was awesome. Whomever designed the lay out of the cabin is a genius, wonderful details and use of small spaces. Loved it!!!
As many others have shared, the Shelley Cabin is a lovely experience on all levels. Kudos to the owner and teams that continue to keep this gem looking like a gem with all those of us who stay here. We will definitely return and have already recommended to our friends.
Great location with access to quiet, private beach.
Cozy, quiet, clean, comfortable, convenient.
Rain or shine, a place to stay and enjoy the Oregon coast.
Loved lots about this cabin, unfortunately, completely overshadowed by the state of the mattress. A new washer/dryer, but an old, lumpy mattress. A vacation bed should be awesome.
We are sorry to see this mattress did not suit this guest's preferences. This is a difficult area since mattress preferences vary greatly from guest to guest. We will keep this comment in mind. Thanks!
If we had sheets ( and again at 200+ a night I shouldn't be needing to ask for sheets) and the walk out bedroom door had dead bolt or better lock, it would have been a wonderful stay. We liked the home a lot otherwise. It is cozy. We walked to beach. The town of Yachats is now our new favorite on OR coast. Very good food. It had this awesome Vegan friendly cafe - Green Salmon. River roasters coffee shop in Florence was very cute too.
If I had wanted to imagine a perfect cabin, in a wild and gorgeous open setting, close to little towns, but feeling as if we were isolated, this would be the place! The cabin is modern inside and has gorgeous views of the ocean. It has all amenities we needed and more. This is a very special place in an awesome setting.
Secluded, quiet, a slice of heaven on the rugged Oregon Coast.
Sunset views are gorgeous. Very well equipped kitchen except it would be nice to have steamer for veggies. 😊
relaxing and peaceful , would be nice if some of the windows opened for fresh air and hearing the sounds of the waves.
Soooo amazing! We booked this memorial trip for my late brother who had been wanting to take a trip to the ocean for the first time, and never made it before he passed away from a sudden stroke. :( The house was so cute and utilized the space amazingly! It looks so small outside but was SO roomy inside! My mom and her husband and me had plenty of space to be! So tastefully decorated and remodeled perfectly! The fire pit, hammock and outside living space are terrific! The trail to the beach is exhilarating.. a little intense the last 10 feet or so, but I am over 300 lbs and made it so unless you're disabled or up there in age you'll be just fine. You won't regret booking this lovely home! I can't wait to come back and spend more time. ♡♡
Loved the location and the trail to the beach was fun! Although the trail is a little rough, it is easy to manage for young folks. Can't wait to be be back!
The Shelly Cabin made a terrific getaway for our family of three (2 adults and an 11 year old). Away from everything we had a lot of privacy. We pretty much had the beach to ourselves and the wind was perfect for kite flying. The property was as described and very well appointed. The ocean view is spectacular, and we were lulled to sleep by the crashing waves. The Netflix access was a great bonus.
Lovely and unique historic oceanfront cabin with privacy and gorgeous views. Nicely updated and comfortable, about 15 minutes south of Yachats. We found the beach access trail quite walkable; the last few feet requires a bit of clambering but nothing too technical. Lovely beach with interesting volcanic rock. The cabin is well-equipped, no cell phone or cable but there's wifi and Roku with a Netflix subscription. Relaxing and cozy. I was told I could not check in early, so the cleaning service should have had plenty of time to get the place ready, but there were still a few misses. Generally very clean and pleasant, though. The biggest disappointment was that none of the windows opened, so the only way to get fresh air in the cabin was to leave open a French door to the bedroom or living room. Since the cabin is right off the main highway this didn't feel terribly safe.
A very special place. Stunning views, creative and thoughtful design, many small touches, and our own private beach! We cannot wait to get back and toast the sunset once again.
Fantastic cabin in the woods. It was charming, clean and very comfortable. We had a wonderful time while we were there.The only reason I did not give this property 5 stars is that the last 10-15 feet of the trail to the beach is very challenging, steep and very wet from water seeping from above. This meant that when you wanted to walk on the beach you had to get into the car and drive to a different beach.
This house is a little gem. Tucked into the woods you would thing you are miles from anyone...and you might be. We had great time at the Shelley Cabin, but want to point out a couple of things if you have small children. There are not not any window covering so if you go in the summer trying to get to bed before its dark is almost impossible. The trail is rugged, we managed to take kids down one, but after that drove to the beach. Pro/con the house was our of cell coverage (AT&T) it has wifi but if you have one person try and got to the beach they can't call back to the cabin.
Overall we had an amazing trip and the cabin in clean and modern with everything you need. i would highly recommend this to a couple looking to get away, but families with little kids might want something with better beach access, however pubic access beaches are not far, less than 5 minute drive.
Perfect cabin in the woods with beach access. Amazing view of ocean. 5 stars.
Highly recommended. View is very nice. The waves a calling and soothing. You'll fall in love with the little cottage. I did.
We already talked about going back on the drive home, just wished we could stay longer.
