Yachats House Rental Photos and Description

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

The Swallows is a cottage located a few steps from the historic 804 Trail and where the rocky shores meet the sandy beaches to the North. It is an ideal location to the ocean and the cottage itself sits on a lawn surrounded by well established greenery and roses. You may sit at the table and watch the ocean through the trees, or the rabbits running by; bird watching is VERY rewarding at The Swallows. All in all, Norman Rockwell would have painted the scenery if he knew about it.....

The cabin has two bedrooms with comfortable(!) queen beds and there is a TV room beside the living room. Most of our guest have commented that the location of The Swallows is top notch and that the living space inside is bright, colorful and very cozy. Particularly well liked are the decorative pieces from around the world and the general good and homey feeling. The kitchen is mentioned as exceptionally well equipped; the knives cut. It is a home away from home.

Yachats is the 'Gem of the Oregon Coast' for good reason and I am totally happy in this divine spot on Earth. Most of our guest return because they share my own enthusiasm for The Swallows.

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.

Nikki Hamilton purchased this house in 2015

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.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

Great little house that was perfect for us and our shih tzu. Loved the 'stairs' to the beach, and the proximity. Lovely foliage all around.

We had trouble getting the fireplace started, but called and found out how to make it work the first evening.

We were also blessed with perfect weather, so all in all our Labor Day at the Swallows was great!

A wonderful little beach house

  • 4 of 5

This is is wonderful little beach house. The layout of the rooms is perfect for a family get together of 5 or so people. It is fully stocked for a stay of 3 or more days. The beach access is down a gravel road-not from the house lot itself--more like 5-10 minutes from the beach.

Great location right by the beach!

  • 3 of 5

The Swallows is a sweet little home next to the ocean with all the necessary amenities. Great place to get away and enjoy one of the best towns along the Oregon Coast, Yachats!

Loved being so close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This simple but well equipped, reasonably priced home was perfect for our daily walks along the 804, beach dog romps & exploring tidal pools. All accessible within a very short walk. There is a rope rail on the short trail down to the beach, which made it safe for the oldsters in our group. And a hose at the house for washing off sandy feet. We will definitely return next year!
