Overview

Coastal Oregon House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)

This is a very comfortable, family-friendly, newer home near the beach in beautiful Yachats. Our home is located just walking distance from downtown shops, restaurants, and the Adobe Restaurant/Resort. At our home, you are also a short 2 minute walk to the head of the 804 Trail, which winds along the coastal bluff. From the trail, you will have easy access to the beautiful beaches, where you can enjoy the unique lava rock formations, seals playing in the surf, starfish, shellfish, and fascinating tide pools.

There is room for one or two families, with plenty of games for those occasional rainy days. Half of our two car garage is also converted to a game area, with ping pong, darts, and a foosball table that will convert to a non-electric hockey table. High speed internet/WiFi access is available at no charge.

Outside, you will find a beautifully gardened yard with a hammock for relaxing, a charcoal barbecue, fire pit, and lawn furniture. Enjoy the beautiful sights and sounds of Yachats, our coastal gem!

Why Beth Vargas Duncan chose Coastal Oregon

Many fellow Oregonians told us their favorite spot on the Oregon Coast is Yachats. When searching for a coastal home of our own, we looked all along the Oregon Coast. We feel very fortunate that we found a home in Yachats and we are pleased to have the opportunity to share it with others. We take pride in keeping our home very well maintained, so we recently took over managing our home, the Starfish House ourselves.

What makes this house unique

We very much enjoy peeks of the ocean from our home, and listening to waves crashing on the rocks from the master bedroom. When we come to visit our coastal home, we always look forward to parking our car in the driveway and spending the rest of our visit walking...to the beach, along the 804 Trail, to downtown, on the boardwalk behind the library, to the park, and the Farmers Market.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello all--we are looking forward to a great summer at the beach! Yachats has been beautiful and we have been booking up our available dates pretty quickly. If you are interested in staying, please check out our availability calendar today!

Spent the weekend at Starfish house with 3 friends for a quilters weekend. Plenty of space, clean, well stocked & good lighting. Will definitely return again sometime. Love the 804 trail. Great food at Drift Inn Cafe. Owners are very helpful and great to work with.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, quiet, fully stocked home by the sea! Can't say enough to great things about this place! Accommodated our large family with something for everyone- games, fire pit, books, cable, comfy beds for ocean induced naps, and a short walk to beautiful coastal bluff trail, beaches coves, or town for some fair trade coffee! The owner Beth was amazing to work with, we are already trying to figure out when we can come back! A true home a away from home!

Birthday Celebration

  • 4 of 5

We went to celebrate a family member's birthday along with her 8 year old. The Adobe is within walking distance and a special place for a birthday dinner. In the morning the tide was out so we drove a short distance so the 8 year old could build sand castles enclosed by a moat. He also loved the fun games in the garage. We gave the birthday girl and her son the Master suite and they loved it, especially the claw foot bath tub and the king size bed. It also has a sofa bed. The kitchen was not lacking anything we needed. We were able to bring our dog along and she was comfortable there also as we were. Yachats is a favorite place of ours. We are looking forward to coming back and having the Master suite to ourselves. We were only able to stay 2 nights and would have liked to stay longer. Beth is a great person to work with. She was helpful and friendly.

PERFECT!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Starfish House was an AMAZING retreat from the modern world and high stress of corporate life. This warm and welcoming home sits on a quiet loop just steps from the bluffs and the 804 trail. Clean, quiet, roomy, comfortable....i could go on and on. Our family of 7 spent a week at the house and loved every minute! From smores around the fire pit, to grilling steaks on one of the available bbq's. The house lacks nothing. Everything to be able to kick back and relax. Perfect location to day trip to Newport Aquarium or Florence for a dune buggy tour. Beth is very friendly and responsive, if you need anything, she is in contact promptly. Could not have had a better stay on the coast. Our family is already making plans to return.

Great place for families

  • 5 of 5

The Starfish House was perfect for our family and a really sweet little place to stay. The option for self cleaning made it such a bargain. Beth was accommodating and friendly and responsive. We loved her choices of colors and I LOVED the Master bath and King size bed! We sat in the back yard with a fire and played games. It's super well-stocked, comfortable and pretty. I love Yachats and it was a two minute drive to beach access. We will be coming back!

Great value

  • 5 of 5

This rental is a real bargain probably because it is not beach front or ocean view (although you do get a peek at the ocean and can hear it.) But it is very close to the 804 trail and within walking distance of "downtown" Yachats. It is very quiet and peaceful. Upon arrival, we found the house very clean, well-equipped, and just as portrayed in the listing. The owners were very helpful in answering questions beforehand, and furthermore, once at the house, everything in the house is so well-organized --and even labeled-- that there is no need for questions. We enjoyed our stay very much. I would however bring potential renters' attention to the floorplan that the owners have kindly provided along with the photos on the VRBO site. Although it is 3 bedrooms, you have to go through the small bedroom to get to the master bedroom, or else go around outside via the deck. This was not a problem for us, but it may be a consideration for some. In any case, this is a very nice, well cared-for house, and I would not hesitate to recommend it.
