WHERE THE SEA MEETS THE FOREST...ON HORIZON HILL

Yachats House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 bath with ocean and mountain view.

Relax in an architecturally designed home set on a private 1 acre wooded property that is perched on a hill over looking the Oregon coast. Yachats is a quaint and peaceful village with small shops and friendly people. Spend an afternoon browsing through the shops or relaxing on one of the many decks while enjoying the breath-taking view of the ocean. The house is only one mile from the beach and adjacent to many hiking trails, such as Cape Perpetua, which offers interpretative walks of coastal features. Oregon weather is variable. Many past guests have enjoyed the sunsets and storms while perched on this peak 700 feet above the ocean.

This home is an open plan with high ceilings and skylights to bring in the morning sun. The fireplace can warm up your evening on those stormy nights. This retreat has an ocean view from the master bedroom, with a King-size bed and a large master bath with tiled shower and large jetted tub. The second bedroom has two twin beds and its own private deck and bathroom. Perched above is a sleeping loft with its own crow’s nest. A laundry and half bath are available on the main level. This is a great house for socializing. The open plan allows for good conversation, good cooking and good friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner
WOW! What an intensely relaxing atmosphere! Sitting high above the world, the ocean view is intoxicating. It is amazing how far you can see from this bird's eye perch. There was plenty of room here and we each had a carved-out corner of this very interestingly designed home. The ceilings are high, giving it a much larger feel, but each sleeping area is uniquely tucked into the design. The use of transient light is lovely, using well placed interior windows and panels to carry the outside light throughout the home. The kitchen is expansive, giving plenty of room to create. At night, we enjoyed sitting by the fire in the rock fireplace, sipping wine and listening to the wonderfully stormy weather combined with the sound of the surf. We'll come back again and again. Thanks for just what we needed!

We designed and built this home for the family. The home has the personal touches that make it a special place to us and our guests.

Kip Amend purchased this house in 1989

We have continued to make Yachats our favorite place to visit on the Oregon Coast. There is always something new to discover.

The kind words from our guests tell the story of the home for us!

A spectacular dwelling!!

  • 5 of 5
This property certainly met, really exceeded, all of our expectations. One has an otherworldly feeling living so high atop the hill surrounded by trees and overlooking the ocean. There was an overhang of clouds during our stay which contributed to the surreal atmosphere. Picture windows and skylights abound and give one the feeling of living both in and outdoors at the same time. Yachats itself is a quiet little village, but not without its "happenings" such as a wonderful annual world music festival we were lucky enough to attend while there. It is also close to some spectacular state parks, many trails and of course that ocean! A "getaway" in the truest sense and one which we would certainly want to revisit in future. Thank you, Dena and Kip!

Owner's Response: The location of he House has definitely been a retreat for those who come from warmer climates. Watching the fog arrive and the passing of the clouds can never get old!

PRIVATE, QUIET, TOP OF THE HILL

  • 4 of 5
We love the Yachats area; however with the "someday" tsunami threats we have kept ourselves away. This house is perfect for those who want the ocean view & sound with the ability to sleep at night knowing you are 700+ feet up. You will feel nestled in the forest with its shade, ferns and lovely breezes and if you walk just a tiny bit further up the hill you will have a breath taking view of the coastline (that many don't see). Very secluded & quiet.

Owner's Response: You realize how much power and size the coast has when you visit the top of the hill...looking across to Cape Perpetua to the South and North to Seal Rock and Yaquina Head along with the top of the Alsea Bay Bridge on a clear day.

Wonderful Stay At Your Welcoming Home

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in several coast rentals over the years and this now shares the top of our favorites list. A new experience to stay at the top of the hill overlooking Yachats! We stayed over the Thanksgiving holiday and spent our time using the well stocked kitchen (full Thanksgiving dinner among our meals!) and enjoying the fireplace in the living room. The master bedroom has a comfortable bed with wonderful windows overlooking the treetops and ocean-as does the livingroom and loft. Our son took one of the beds in the twin room and our daughter was excited to have the loft to herself. We used the telescope in the loft to look at the comet streaking by. When we wanted to add an extra day, Kip was very easy to get a hold of and accommodating. Lucky to have some incredible weather but even on our last day when the clouds and rain came in, the house was super cozy. We will be back in the future. Thanks from my family for adding to our holiday.

Owner's Response: We tried to create a special spaces in our home where guests can have a place to go for privacy or relaxation. Watching a comet or spying on whales is fun on the "birds nest" deck. Thanks for sharing your holiday with us!

Wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful house in a wonderful setting; very peaceful & quiet. House is very comfortable, and the sunset view from the deck outside the living room is not to be missed. Kitchen is well appointed with plenty of dishes, cookware, utensils, etc. This VRBO house is one of the very best of the houses we've rented over the years. House is perfect for families, or two couples traveling together

Private, Quiet, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5
A lovely home framed by beautiful trees looking out to the ocean. Kip and Dena are responsive, helpful owners. Gorgeous sea walks daily on the 804 Trail. Wonderful meal at Ona's. Only one request: better reading lights in the master bedroom and living room.

Owner's Response: Thanks Pam and Ben. It is important to be able to take advantage of the solitude of the House when you want to read...we will try to brighten things up! We believe that making the effort to be responsible is important in making sure we have guests that help us take care of the place, such as you guys.

Charming, cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
We arrived just before dark on a Friday, winding our way up, up, up Horizon Hill Road to this lovely house, sitting proudly on a ridge and looking out into the mist. After a long day of travel it was a welcome sight, and the outdoor lights came on to illuminate to the entry. It's evident Dena and Kip have put a lot of themselves into this home. The rooms are all tastefully decorated, the chairs and couches wrap around you and the kitchen is well stocked. Everything was clean too, making us feel like we'd just entered our own home. All the conveniences are there if you want them -- stereo, fireplace, WiFi -- but we found the solitude perfect for reading books. The drive to town is easy, and if you walk you'll want to be ready for the uphill climb on the way back! There are some beautifully landscaped homes along the way. There are several nice restaurants in town, lots of littles shops to visit and of course the coastline. We also enjoyed the artists' galleries just north of town. Despite the persistent fog and chill during our two days (in mid-August!), we loved our time in Yachats and at the Horizon Hill "Hideaway" -- we'll be back soon :)

Owner's Response: The House is certainly on the "Magical Mist-y Tour"! Nowhere like a comfortable, warm place to land on a damp evening.
