FREE NIGHT! WHERE THE ROCKY BEACH MEETS THE SAND-804 TRAIL

Yachats House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager
.....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.

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.

The Owner 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.

NICE INDEED

  • 4 of 5
Ditto the review of "Michael" re "Delightful Getaway" (below). The Swallows is on a gravel lane a few houses off the highway so there's no road noise. Follow the gravel lane a few houses farther and you're at the 804 path ... with the sandy beach to your right and the rocky coast to your left. From the little deck, with shrubs trimmed now, there's a view northwest beyond another house to the ocean. If you want an upscale, trendy, just-built, spendy bite out of your wallet to impress your ritzy east coast relatives, go elsewhere, but if you want a tidy little house like your folks might have kept for a weekend getaway, this is it. A great way to stay in Yachats. We've been back several years running.

A DELIGHTFUL GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My sweetheart and I stayed here with our good friends, another couple, and it was just perfect! There is plenty of room for two couples, with all the comforts of home. The house is very neat and clean, and the neighborhood quite peaceful. The two queen beds are very comfortable, and we slept so soundly to the gentle sound of the distant surf.

We really enjoyed our two previous stays here, and were very pleasantly surprised to see some great improvements this year. The brand new deck is just wonderful, with room for all four of us to hang out and enjoy the view of the ocean revealed by the recent landscape trimming. I really enjoy having my morning coffee outside in the fresh air and nature, and the deck was just perfect! And now we could also enjoy the ocean view from the dining room window, with the vegetation cleared.

One thing that has always impressed me is the countless personal touches in the simple and tasteful decor. For instance, the hand-painted light fixture in the living room ceiling, perhaps from a local artist (?) is just delightful. Small touches abound everywhere, showing personal care and consideration. What a pleasant change from the sterile, utilitarian approach found in so many lodgings.

It seems like virtually everything we needed was available to us, from the well-equipped kitchen to the flat-screen TV and DVD player, telephone, and wi-fi internet (that I was pleasantly surprised to see was faster than our home service).

The house is but a few hundred feet from the coastal hiking trail, and we spent much of our time exploring the beach and rocks both north and south. We found a number of sandy beaches with easy access, great for strolling and carving messages and creating other ‘beach art.’

Thank you for providing such a comfortable and convenient getaway. It is really an incredible value!

CHARMING HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We had four people stay at this cute abode. The house is clean, comfortable, and cozy - perfect for a rainy Yachats weekend. We walked from the house to the beach to check out tide pools, and when we returned, we warmed ourselves up by the fireplace. The kitchen had everything we needed to make all our meals in, and the dining area has a lovely window overlooking the ocean. We appreciated the option to avoid the cleaning fee by bringing our own linens, too. This is a great house!

FIT THE BILL PERFECTLY!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I were joined by our daughter and 9 month old granddaughter. The cottage was neat as a pin. Simply but comfortably furnished. The cottage lay-out was perfect for all of our family needs. Space to play and hangout, privacy and quiet when needed. The kitchen was very well equipped. The 804 really is steps away but you cannot get down to the beach which is true from many spots on the 804. Yachats was great for the Fourth of July, a fun town with a relaxed vibe and good food.
This cottage is a great value!

RELAXING WEEKEND AWAY

  • 5 of 5
The two of us and our two dogs had a great weekend at The Swallows. We could watch the ocean from the dining room table (while enjoying fresh steamed crab from nearby Newport) and fell asleep in a comfortable bed while listening to the sound of the ocean. The ocean view may be obscured during summer months when foliage is high on the trees, but the location was wonderful and the price was excellent. A fully appointed kitchen--the best I've experienced at any rental house.

OVERZEALOUS DESCRIPTION

  • 2 of 5
The ocean view is blocked by trees and the fireplace smokes so bad you have to remove the smoke detectors to use it, it is not safe.

Owner's Response: I am truly sorry that our guest, Virgil, was disappointed with his stay at the Swallows. Elsewhere in our correspondence he had kinder things to say. We had no previous report of fireplace malfunction and so we appreciated learning that we needed to attend to the fireplace. The fireplace has been examined and fixed.

The Swallows is a lovely place where many of our guests have remarked that they enjoyed the ocean view and the sound of the surf. I expect that many more guests will enjoy our hospitality and our home in the future. We always respond to suggestions.
