The Overlook is nestled into the west facing slope on the edge of Yachats overlooking the Yachats River. It affords an uninterrupted view of the river as it flows into the Pacific Ocean kicking up the surf over a broad tidal beach, spouting horns, and rocky outcrops. This home has it all: the peaceful serenity of ocean views plus easy walking distance to the beach or the bustling center of town. Whether you’re in the mood for dining out, watching a movie, or simply unwinding from your fast paced life, at The Overlook you will find the best of both worlds.
After viewing the spectacular sunset from the wrap around balcony or through the ceiling to floor windows in the living/dining area, you can relax in the comfortable living room, cook in the gourmet kitchen, and watch TV or movies on the 40' High Definition LCD panel TV with Surround Sound.
You’ll sleep comfortably in the master bedroom king sized bed. The en-suite bathroom has a jetted tub, separate shower, and large walk-in closet. Downstairs the guest room has a queen sized bed and shares a beautiful bath that includes a large tub with enclosed shower. The 3rd bedroom is set up for the kids with a bunk bed that sleeps 3 and a futon that could sleep 2 more. It has its own 36” TV plus DVD and a Karaoke player!
Leave your car in the ample parking and walk two blocks to the local restaurants and shops. You can visit Luna Sea Fish House to buy your fish or dine there. Close by is the Green Salmon where you can have a cup of organic coffee or tea. Across the street is C&K market for all your grocery needs. Yachats has it all: a Sunday Farmer’s Market, an ice cream shop, gourmet wine shop, bakery, fly fishing shop, general mercantile, and more.
It is also an easy walk to both the South Shore Tidal Beach for fun in the sand and the North Shore 804 Trail which follows along the Yachats spectacular rocky coastline. The Yachats community is especially proud of the newly inaugurated Amanda Trail which winds its way south to the top of Cape Perpetua.
Dogs love the beach and are welcome to join you (2 Maximum) at The Overlook. The balcony can be closed off so your pooch can securely lounge in the sun. There is also a kennel in the garage where your dog can sleep comfortably while you are off shopping or beach combing.
We pride ourselves on our cleanliness. All of the bedding (including mattress pads and blankets) are washed after every rental. We take particular care after we have dog visitors. Our cleaning staff takes the extra time to steam clean the flooring plus they find and remove every nose print from the numerous windows!
Come stay with us for comfortable living with a fabulous view and fun exploring the wonderful village of Yachats.

About Chris Bobenhausen
We are a family who grew up in Oregon and now are raising the next generation around the country and around the globe. Yachats holds a special place in our hearts with fond memories of family retreats at the beach to reconnect despite the expanding boundaries of our lives.
Chris Bobenhausen purchased this House in 2007
Why Chris Bobenhausen chose Yachats
When the opportunity arose to give our family time at the coast a more constant and familiar setting without sacrificing convenience to the town, the best beaches, our favorite hikes, or even giving up privacy, how could we pass that up? Some of us fell for the soaking tub, others for the wide view deck which lends itself to savoring a drink and journaling, a few couldn't pass up the updated and well-styled kitchen. For at least one of us, it's possible that the very short walk to fresh roasted espresso first thing in the morning sealed the deal. Our far-flung members allow plenty of time for us to extend access to our home to other families and groups of friends who appreciate the peaceful vigor of the Oregon beaches and don't presently have a permanent piece of that little heaven for themselves.

A Good Choice
Family reunions are tough. Overlook helped to make ours a success. The view and the Oregon coast dramatic weather changes vastly impressed the New York and southern California relatives. AOK
Fabulous location, beautiful views!
We went straight to the Drift Inn for dinner upon arriving at Yachats and was surprised, when I looked at the address of the home, that we were dining closer to the home than our parked car! Despite this close-in proximity, the house feels secluded and private.
The king bed in the master was very comfortable, the main room and the deck has incredible views. Our kiddos loved the bunk room.
The host was incredibly accommodating and friendly. Highly recommended stay!
fantastic location and views
Our 4th year here, we love it
Great place, wonderful location. Clean, fun, had everything we needed!
Wonderful House - Perfect Location
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay with some of our extended family. The house worked well for adults, a toddler, a baby and a dog, with enough room for everyone to enjoy meals, games, TV watching and just hanging out enjoying the view. The house is in the perfect spot, close to the shops and restaurants; truly a short walk. This was our second stay at The Overlook. We'll be back.
Fantastic for the family!
We had an excellent time at The Overlook! It had everything we needed for our young family of 4 and could have supported a couple more folks comfortably. The view was stunning and the location was perfect for us since we could walk down to all restaurants, shops, and the beach very easily. We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation and this house made it really easy to kick back and enjoy. Thank you!
