About the property

Step into Complete Relaxation w/ Private Beach Access! Bring the Whole Family!

We are now offering a complimentary welcome gift that includes: Gilchrist & Soames Spa Essentials and Starbucks Pike Place Roast Coffee, including decaf!

Come and enjoy a stay at the gorgeous Yachat's coast. Our guests reviews/comments say it all.

If you are seeking a place to get away, gather with family and friends and relax, and be able to bring a furry friend or two, check us out! SecondWind is without doubt your home away from home. We offer unsurpassed comfort, views, and relaxation. The home is located just a short drive north of the quaint town of Yachats-'The Gem of the Oregon Coast'. Also just a short beach walk from the famous 804 Trail. Just steps away is a wide sandy beach that can be walked for miles in each direction. Our home is down a quiet private lane and offers private beach access!

One of the most wonderful features of this home is the upstairs Gathering Room, with an 180 degree view. Many folks can be in this space watching for whales, watching TV, reading or playing games. The adjoining ocean view deck is great for relaxing and bird watching. Occasionally a deer or rabbit might venture onto the property! Plenty of space for all to enjoy a good time.

Another great feature is the large kitchen with double skylights and adjoins the ocean view sitting area with propane stove for cozy wave watching. Complete with all the extra amenities, it provides a great social gathering place during meal preparation time.

But let's not forget our furry friends, who are totally welcome to come stay with the family. When not on the beach or relaxing upstairs, there is a fenced in backyard, through the sliding glass doors in the kitchen. Here, pets can hang out on their own private deck to relax and yet still feel part of the family gathering. Within this space is a small grassy area and a water faucet for quick cleanups of sandy paws.

All in all, SecondWind is a wonderful place to come for your family and friends' gathering spot. We look forward to your stay!

About KaCee Shepherd

I wanna be retired, but being self-employed, I'll probably be working forever. I have two children, and three grandchildren. This is a wonderful place to come relax and unwind. For many years, this is where I got my secondwind, until the decision was made to share it with you!

KaCee Shepherd purchased this house in 1991

Why KaCee Shepherd chose Coastal Oregon

This is a wonderful place to relax, unwind, and share with friends and family, without bumping into each other. I love sitting in the glassed-in gathering room, where I occasionally catch a glimpse of a whale; while the younger folk love playing on the beach. We are just a short walk from the 804 Trail, if someone feels like walking to Yachats without getting on the highway. Secondwind is private and relaxing but adventure is right out door!

What makes this house unique

Small, quiet yet energetic community full of art and music, good food and nature. The quiet and solitude one finds here is unsurpassed. Ocean front, with a beach you can walk/play on for miles. You can get away from it all or immerse yourself in the Oregon Coast culture!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I took my Mother to the Coast for a few days. Each time she comes for a visit we make a trip to the Coast and while it's a good just needed to be longer. This time we scheduled a few days at the Coast through this Rental Property. I had been here before with my husband few years ago and when I came across it, I knew I had to take my Mom here. Her first words when we entered the house..."WOW!" It is a wonderful home and the ocean is just right out the front door....well okay, maybe not "right" out the front door, but a short distance from the front door. We spent our first day on the sand-because it was a beautiful day. Our second day turned out to be overcast and some rain. We spent most the day in Pj's, played some games, then walked the beach(Oh! but not in our Pj's). It was a delightful stay and so comfortable and cozy. I'm glad we could get a house for my Mom's stay. Thank You Secondwind!!

Beautiful, clean and truly beach front!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Secondwind! The house itself is beautiful and clean with killer views. Just a short walk to having the sand between your toes! We were so pleased that our fury friend was able to tag along, he had so much fun exploring the area. And to top the whole experience off we saw some gray whales straight from the deck on our last day there. It was all amazing and so rejuvenating! We would definitely recommend Secondwind to family, friends and anyone looking to enjoy the Oregon coast!

ad deciptive

The assumption was the main floor was level, not steps up or down to gain access to kitchen, bedrooms, and bath. Who ever heard of steps up to a lav and another step up to the toilet.

Grandma is wheelchair dependent and spent two days in the recliner. Thanks a hell of a lot.

Owner's Response: John, You NEVER mentioned a wheelchair bound guest. I would have suggested renting elsewhere if that was known. You only said that the two babies would have travel cribs. I feel awful grandma was stuck in the recliner. In the future, I will make sure guests are aware that this home is not wheelchair accessible. KaCee

Wonderful view and quick access to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

A nice clean house with a wonderful view of the beach. The house was well-furnished and comfortable for our group. This property is ideal for a group of about 6 people but more can stay if you're willing to sleep on futons. A very relaxing vacation with our family I would definitely stay here again in the future. The owner was very responsive and communicated very well with us.

Family Gathering Time

  • 5 of 5

This was a comfortable and well suited house and location for our family of 8 adults and 4 younger ones plus 2 dogs. The short path with tall grasses to the beach made easy access to this lovely stretch of sandy Oregon coast. The house is very well equipped, the BBQ chefs loved the grill, large variety and number of kitchen supplies for our family that loves to cook and eat. And the Great room and deck had fabulous views out to the ocean.

This is our favorite house and we have experienced 5 or 6 different coast houses for the past 5 or 6 years.

Also the linens are plentiful and in very nice condition.

Thank you for sharing your home.

beautiful view

  • 3 of 5

First and fore most Kacee with VRBO was a dream to work with regarding the booking and arrangements- she did an excellent job!! The owneres are very lucky to have her ! While the view is super amazing and we had wonderful T shirt weather at 69 degrees and no wind - there was some disappointment especially after spending 2600 dollars plus for a family vacation

Both bedrooms had a kind of "funky coast smell and the mattresses were not comfortable -

Plenty of hot water for the showers and the dog area is really nice to have--

The carport was full of sand and rocks - husband got it clean -so we would track in less sand!

I should have tried the futons sooner - they are great!

The kitchen really needs some ordinary mixing bowls - but other than that really very well stocked

The stove is very very high quality - very nice

I was disappointed to see a lot of food in the freezer and some in the fridge upon arrival that we really were not sure how long it had been there- if it was un opened we left otherwise thru it out. Most rentals require all food to be gone --

Location is quiet and safe -- fairly easy beach access --

Internet access was great !!

Thanks again for our stay Barb and Gene and family

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at Secondwind. I am sorry you were disappointed in the sand and coastal smell but you can't get much closer to the ocean!!! We will make sure to get new mixing bowls in and will address the food in the freezer issue. Thank you for your feed back!
