The Swallows is a cottage located a few steps from the historic 804 Trail and where the rocky shores meet the sandy beaches to the North. It is an ideal location to the ocean and the cottage itself sits on a lawn surrounded by well established greenery and roses. You may sit at the table and watch the ocean through the trees, or the rabbits running by; bird watching is VERY rewarding at The Swallows. All in all, Norman Rockwell would have painted the scenery if he knew about it.....
The cabin has two bedrooms with comfortable(!) queen beds and there is a TV room beside the living room. Most of our guest have commented that the location of The Swallows is top notch and that the living space inside is bright, colorful and very cozy. Particularly well liked are the decorative pieces from around the world and the general good and homey feeling. The kitchen is mentioned as exceptionally well equipped; the knives cut. It is a home away from home.
Yachats is the 'Gem of the Oregon Coast' for good reason and I am totally happy in this divine spot on Earth. Most of our guest return because they share my own enthusiasm for The Swallows.

I fell in love with Yachats and Trail 804 way back in the early 1970's and this is where I always went for a change, rest and rejuvenation. One day as I came to the north end of the Trail, I decided to take a peek at the street to my right. It was a small street and had a few cottages; I was green with envy for the owners who were blessed with such a location and so much peace and quiet. The visit to this street became the regular end of my walk on 804. Finally, about 20 years later I saw a for sale sign on one of the cottages.....and, the rest is history.
Nikki Hamilton purchased this house in 1997
I bought this property because of LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Then, I went to work on making it the kind of get-away that most people would appreciate: comfortable, cozy, bright and fun. It is a very personal kind of place.....; in general, I would color it HAPPY!
I love the quiet and the sound of the surf in every room. I am yet to finish reading anything....the sound of the surf has me asleep in no time at all.... Luckily we are quite a bit away from the highway and close to the beach and resting is great! I like the easy and uncomplicated atmosphere and the proximity of Overleaf Lodge, Fireside and the Adobe for some special amenities.....It is nice to walk over to the Adobe for a meal and then, walk back. Just perfect! And, Yachats and the area around have many things to offer in way of entertainment and nature excursions. Newport with its aquarium is not far and I love to eat Japanese at the Yuzen in Seal Rock.
.....we seem to have fallen in love with the Central Coast. The drive to Florence was absolutely breathtaking. The Swallows is perfectly situated between the beach and the rocks/ I can't imagine a more balanced coastline for walks, dogs and tide-pooling. ... Certainly hope to return.
We love this house! Great location. Easy access to the beach and tide pools.
It is a nice little house and enjoyed our visit. I love that it was close to the beach and the 804 trail. We really enjoyed watching the sunset from the trail.
A couple of things to improve on, would be fix the fireplace so it doesn't smoke, have extra sheets available so we don't have to make our own bed, and I would place the TV in the main living room.
Our stay @ the beach was magic, the weather could not have been more delightful and the proximity to the beach/perfect. All of our questions we're answered promptly and the house was very clean and cozy. We cannot wait to get back so relaxing and all of the folks we met so pleasant. Drift inn for dinner good fun with love music but it really is all about the extraordinary beach, Newport is just a half hour but if you just want to chill Yahachts is where its at.
We have rented this house on numerous occasions and always enjoy our stay. It's not fancy but very comfortable and the location cant be beat, with easy beach and 801 trail access. Great house to hang with family and dogs.
The Swallows is a wonderfully quiet, peaceful home with very tasteful, artistic touches. Every time I have stayed there, it has been just what I needed in order to relax and recuperate. It is a truly special place. I will definitely come back again and again!
This house worked out very well for our family. Proximity to the beach, trail accessibility, view from the little porch were all important factors in making our stay here wonderful. The price was great! We would definitely return.
