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.

Perfect place for our family. Close walk to several beaches, grocery store, the best fish and chips place, bakery, etc. Lots to explore on this part of the Oregon coast. Will return.
Great location,, well stocked—Less than ideal property management!
We arrived after a 3 hour car ride with 3 children hungry/antsy tp find that the lockbox code provided did not work.
It took numerous calls & texts to the property manager before the correct code was provided.
It was raining & getting dark, so instead of having the fresh fish supper that we had planned, we had to spend a fair amount of money at a restaurant before getting into the house.
Upon entering there was the strong odor of dog throughput the house. The owner was very responsive (we had even left a vm for her when the property manager was MIA) . Sheoffered to have the housekeeper come the next day.
The odor lessened if we had windows open in each room and we declined the offer. as the house was very clean. We believe the odor was in the carpets &only cleaning them would have resolved the issue,
The house is extremely well stocked with everything including detergent & paper products, Having a washer & dryer was a real plus with 3 little ones.
The location is excellent, 2 blocks to the Southern end of Yachats small commercial area and a 10 minute drive to Cape Perpetual.
We love Yachats & plan to return but sadly not to this property.
After our stay I communicated with the owner who bends over backwards to provide a good experience. However, even after our stay the property manager & the house cleaner could not detect the dog odor!
The owner is having the carpets cleaned by the end of this month.
However, I doubt that the property manager consistently has this done after a dog leaves, as the procedure was promised in the description of the property.
Love this rental
This is our second stay at this rental and it has worked out beautifully both times.
great view and perfect spot to visit Yachats
Our yearly trip to yachats this year was at the overlook. Great place if you like to walk to everything and have a great morning and evening view of this terrific little town and the Pacific ocean. We had a bit of confusion on the check in process but all was worked out with the property manager and owner. The only thing i would recommend is bringing Apple TV or other movie streaming devices the house only has local channels. I would stay at the overlook again.
Nice house- great view!
Great house in walking distance to shops and restaurants, comfy beds and all the amenities you could ever want. Disappointed that the property manager never responded to our call, but the owner was very responsive. Furniture had animal hair, so beware if you have allergies. 1ply TP - so if you’re sensitive bring your own.
Close to aquariums, visitor centers, tidepools, & lighthouses:
The most famous and picturesque lighthouse, Heceta Head, is at Cape Perpetua south of Yachats. This area has hiking trails, a visitor center, and more.
Hiking trails are within a few blocks of The Overlook: Amanda Trail, Historic 804 Trail, & Gerdemann Botanical Preserve’s Public Footpath. Look for the trail posts to assist you.
