Ocean View Cottage in Yachats - Serenity, Relaxation & Charm

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Ocean Dream is a serene retreat in Yachats - gem of the Oregon Coast. Built in 2007, it features a knotty pine interior, crank handled wooden windows, and historical architectural touches guaranteed to delight. It is cozy and comfortable, and it's just steps to the beach. From every room, you can look out over the estuary where the Yachats River flows into the ocean and watch the changing tides and gorgeous sunsets. Open the gate in the yard, go down the steps, and cross the road (Hwy. 101, but it's just 2 lanes, 25 mph) to two state parks, one of which features the best sandy beaches and swimming in town.

If you're a cook, you'll appreciate the herb garden's fresh oregano, mint (great for mojitos!), rosemary, and thyme. In the summer, feel free to use the organic roses to make a batch of rose petal jam; or trim some lavender to add to a glass of cold lemonade.

Yachats itself is a charming village with great restaurants and shops, including a market and video rental store. The 804 trail lets you walk for miles along the ocean. You can enjoy a massage and ocean view hot tub at a local resort. You can also drive a short way to hike to the top of Cape Perpetua through temperate rain forest, visit Heceta Head Lighthouse, descend into the world's largest sea lion caves, climb the sand dunes in Florence, stroll Newport's bay front and visit microbreweries or the aquarium, or enjoy a kayaking excursion in local rivers and marshes. Or stay inside with a book, some music, and the fireplace.

Ocean Dream is a place to relax, unwind, and reconnect with nature and yourself. Call our property manager, Ocean Odyssey, to check availability and rates.

Make your ocean dreams come true!

About The Owner

Elaine Watkins is a retired high school English and history teacher who now lives in Santa Rosa, California. She fell in love with Yachats many years ago and vowed to have a home right where Ocean Dream now stands. She loves to travel and has a passion for organic gardening.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Coastal Oregon

Yachats has that special energy - it's an intimate, open-minded, friendly small town with excellent amenities. You can walk anywhere - the beach is just steps away - and the forest comes right down to the shore. A river runs out to the ocean, creating an estuary where we've watched whales and eagles in the same afternoon. The restaurants are excellent, and you can walk to the market and buy anything you'd need to make a delicious meal. On a rainy day, you can go to the local spa, have a massage, and sit in the soaking tub watching the waves.

What makes this house unique

Ocean Dream is charming! The interior is knotty pine, and you can curl up by the fireplace and see the tides go in and out while you read a book or watch a movie. Tide changes are a feature all our guests comment on - the estuary makes the differences quite dramatic. You stop watching the clock and instead tell time by the ocean. At low tide, go through the gate and down the steps. Walk out on the beach and fly a kite, take a summer swim, or watch the sun set. This is a place of true serenity.

This home could not be more cozy! If you spend any time at all on VRBO you know that some homes completely lack character and look like they were decorated with garage sale cast offs. Not here! The home is so charming with the knotty pine walls and hardwood floors. The sconces and fireplace create a warm glow at night. The furniture is comfortable and clean. We live in Oregon and have taken many trips to the coast. We usually stay right on the ocean but we actually like this better! The house is surrounded by trees and combined with the knotty pine interior it feels like the best of both worlds - forest and ocean together. It is a great central base for exploring south toward Florence or north to Newport. Highly recommended!

Beautiful, Well Maintained Home, Great Location and Ocean Views!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this lovely home. The property is very well maintained, clean, and close to the beach, estuary, and a short walk to town (no long steep hills to climb!). This was another romantic getaway vacation, and the cabin was the perfect place for romance. The natural wood interior and decorations create a warm and cozy feeling. Fireplace, candles, reading nooks, beach combing, ocean walks, wildlife in the yard, fishing in the fall, and great kayaking nearby. We plan to come again in the spring. Thanks for sharing this lovely and enchanting place!

All Season Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This darling home is my favorite beach house on the West Coast! I have visited it in all seasons and found it to be a wonderful place to relax, reflect and rejuvenate, no matter the weather. The physical amenities are first rate - obvious attention to detail in the building of it! The cabin is comfortable, with gorgeous windows that take advantage of the beautiful Oregon coast. I always feel at home in Yachats - it is both scenic and welcoming. From the house it's just a short walk to the estuary beach as well as restaurants and shops. I'm looking forward to my next girlfriend getaway in the new year!

Peaceful Cabin by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

I’ve stayed at this cabin several times over the years. It brings feelings of quiet, peaceful comfort. I love the wood-burning fireplace at night. So enjoy the sunset over the ocean from the upstairs alcove. Landscaping around the cabin is filled with flowers and wildlife that visit regularly. Taking the steps through the garden down to the road is a fun way to get to the estuary. It’s a short distance to town and ocean so I find myself walking everywhere. I recommend this special cottage for a Yachats stay; I’ll be back!

A real GEM in Yachats.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed two nights in this lovely cottage during our trek up the Oregon coast. The moment we drove into the drive and walked in the door we knew we had found a gem. The house is beautiful inside and out, and has all that you need for a very comfortable, relaxing stay. The deck was enjoyable for viewing sunsets, admiring the beautiful flowering shrubs and watching the deer that visited the yard each morning. The location is private, yet just a short scenic walk into town or to the beach. I seriously did not want to leave. Our next visit will definitely be for a longer period of time.

Gorgeous Home, Fabulous Spot

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 who have fallen in love with Oregon. Each summer we come for a visit and are trying to see all 4 corners of the state, along with all in between. Yachats is just big enough to have what we wanted and small enough to not attract the throngs of other tourists. This home has gorgeous details inside and out, to die for lavender and hydrangeas, cozy outdoor spaces, beautiful bedrooms and baths. We easily walked for coffee and bakery goods, seashell hunting, and fresh caught dinner. The nearby main road was not noisy (it's below the home) which was our only real concern before we saw the place. We will go back!!
