About the property

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

Year round bird activity makes this home appropriately named “The Swallows.” Many call The Swallows “A little piece of heaven”, and it is!

The Swallows is located at the end of a quiet little street on the northwest end of Yachats. The house is just one block from seven miles of sandy beach to the north. To the south is the beginning of the historic 804 Trail which meanders along the coastline with breathtaking views of waves crashing on rocks and scenic sunsets. You can walk the trail all of the way into town which in total is about a half hour walk- one way. Stop off along the trail to the Adobe for a meal in their oceanfront restaurant.

You can see the ocean from the living room and dining room and on a nice day sit out on the deck with a cup of tea, soaking in the rays and listening to the sounds of the pounding ocean. The house is a very comfortable, bright , cheery, well stocked abode that is cozy in all seasons, with warm fluffy blankets and comfortable beds.

On a rainy day, enjoy a walk along the 804 Trail and then come home to snuggle in front of the cozy gas fireplace. Curl up with a book from the bookshelf, or enjoy a puzzle or game provided for your pleasure. If you’re a Duck or Beaver fan, you can even grab a game on the television.

We love dogs and gladly welcome yours, though we do ask that you pick up after them and keep them off the furniture and blankets. Dog towels are provided for you as well.

The beach at The Swallows is dog (and people) heaven – we hope that you enjoy!

About Nikki Hamilton

We fell in love with Yachats and the 804 Trail back in the early 1990's. This is where we always went for a change, rest and rejuvenation. We would always rent a house on the "fish streets" with our three children, as we loved the proximity of the beach and trail and so much peace and quiet. We felt like the people who had homes here were so lucky, and we held out hope that someday we could be as lucky too! We frequently rented "The Swallows" and by a twist of fate reached out to the owner at a time when she was looking to make a change, as were we....and, the rest is history.

Why Nikki Hamilton chose Coastal Oregon

We bought this property because of LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. It is the kind of get-away that most people would appreciate: comfortable, cozy, bright and fun. It is a very personal kind of place..a great little retreat to the coast.

What makes this house unique

We love the quiet and the sound of the surf in every room. We are yet to finish reading anything....the sound of the surf has us asleep in no time at all.... The house is cozy with a great view of the ocean and a gas fireplace that makes even the rainiest of days a pleasure. We 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 (their chocolate cake is to die for!) 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 we love to eat pastries at the Green Salmon or go for dinner and listen to music at the Drift Inn.

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.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental to spend a week in with two friends. There was plenty of space for us to not feel cramped and allowed us to get 'away' from each other. The house was clean and well stocked. I would definitely return to this house for another vacation!

Great little house with great location

  • 4 of 5

Nicely stocked kitchen and plenty of sheets, blankets, and towels. A very short easy walk to beach and on a quiet street. Wish it had a dishwasher, but otherwise, great! We'll return.

The Swallows is Absolutely Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

The Surf sings all night. Mornings are cool enough to enjoy the cozy gas fireplace, or sip a comfortable cup on the small patio among flowering hedges of lavender fuchsia and hydrangea. Beds are very comfortable with lovely linens. Everything is provided down to quality napkins. One caution is the corners of the glass table which were carefully marked with tape, I put a coaster on each corner for further alert. New A/C system was a bit of a riddle but functions beautifully. The area is the Best. At low tide turn right to the sandy beach and visit tide pools along the rocky outcorp. At high tide turn left and watch the waves bursting in air off the rocks. Yachats is situated between perfect hiking trails: Cape Perpetua, Gwenn Creek are our favorites, and the best tidal zones: Seal Rock, Ona Beach, North Neptune not the Picnic table one. We have always stayed at the Fireside but this is so much better! A Quiet that must be experienced to be believed.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

First I want to apologize, I forgot to clean out the fridge on our last day.

The home was perfect for us. Clean, bright and airy. The mattress was so comfortable I almost took it home ;)

Perfect access to the beach, and trails. Had everything we needed. We will be staying here again. Thank you for sharing this wonderful home with us.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Cute little bungalow right near the ocean, with a beautiful sandy beach on the right, and rocky beaches to the left that had some wonderful wave action. It was so peaceful to sit on the small back patio and listen to the surf late in the evenings, and enjoy the view through the trees during the day. It's quite close to the town of Yachats, and only twenty minutes from Newport. Highly recommended!
