Coastal Oregon House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

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 early 2009 we refurbished much of the home. The new skylights, windows, paint, floor coverings and other enhancements provide you with the relaxation and fun your beach vacation is all about. We have just recently installed new picture windows throughout the Ocean facing Gathering Room.

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, TV, reading or playing games. The adjoining ocean view deck is great for relaxing and bird watching. 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. There is an enclosed fenced area off the kitchen sliding glass doors, where 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.

About Lorna Steward

Actually, my partner, who passed in 2012, purchased this property in 1991. It was my partner whose vision it was to remodele this beach house, and turned it into an amazing vacation escape.

Me? 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.

Why Lorna Steward 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 adjacent beach. We are just a short walk from the 804 Trail, if someone feels like walking to Yachats without getting on the highway.

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

From howling winds & torrential rains to balmy sunshine and loved every minute of it. Can't imagine a more magical place for a family reunion, Joining us from Madison WI, Cleveland OH, Washington DC & Eugene. Loved the home- so well set up & cozy & inviting--and of course Yachats is truly the Gem of the Oregon Coast

Best fall beach vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved staying at this wonderful vacation home perched on the dune grasses next to a beautiful stretch of Oregon shoreline. There was plenty of room for the 3 couples on our trip and everything we needed (even soap for the laundry) was provided. The kitchen had new looking appliances and was even stocked with lots of spices for the cooks in the group. Our favorite room was the gathering space on the upper level which overlooked the ocean with floor to ceiling windows. My husband and I chose to sleep on the futon (very comfortably) listening to the waves crashing all night long and watching the stars come out. Heavenly!

The house was very close to a great Beach. The house was clean and had all the necessary things to make our weeks stay comfortable and enjoyable!! Our friends (who had never been to the Oregon Coast) said it was great. Their dog loved running on the beach and thru the serf!! She never did figure out why the Salt Water tasted funny!! The house had a good floor plan for two couples, lots of room for two to work in the kitchen. The Gathering room was where we all spent our "inside" time, it had Great views and some of the best sunsets and sunrises we have seen. This house is at the top of our list if we are able to return to the OR. Coast!!

Great long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

SecondWind was great for our family! We had room for everyone (dog and kids included!), and even a perfect spot to park the trailer, since one of our group had it in tow. The location of the house is superb-- set well back from the highway, and with an unobstructed view and access to the beach. The layout of the house is a little funky, with the deck and main living area away from the kitchen, but it still worked out fine. House is well-stocked, clean, and was a fantastic spot to host our group for a long weekend. Thanks!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is PERFECT. We walked on the beach which is just a few steps away....the deck was gorgeous. We sat up there and had coffee and watched the waves roll in....we will be back as often as possible. Everything from the weather to the house the beach was perfect.... I would recommend this beach house to everyone �� we toured the Rogue brewery on saturday which was wonderful and then ended our day with dinner at Luna Sea. It was a perfect weekend.

Wonderful Escape

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at SecondWind and it won't be the last! Beautiful views of the ocean!!! We had a hard time leaving the upstairs great room. Lots of comfortable seating to sit back, drink coffee, and watch the waves roll in. We also enjoyed a drink while sitting around the table and playing games with the family. I mean you can't go wrong staying here! Make sure to walk south down the beach to the tide pools. You won't regret it! Staying at SecondWind was just what we needed to unwind!
