Overview

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.

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!

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!
