About the property

Whether its a cozy get away for two or a family retreat, our flexible rates will fit your needs.

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.

* Reduced rate nights only apply to rentals under a week and does not include holidays or other high usage dates.

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 Coastal Oregon

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.

Beautiful views and spacious home in a peaceful setting!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a short stay at The Overlook. We enjoyed the spectacular views, the wrap around deck, the spatious interior, and the peaceful neighborhood. Everything we needed was just a short walk into town-from local gifts and Oregon ice cream to fresh drip coffee and baked goods. Everyone we ran into during our outings was extremely friendly and helpful. We were able to experience the local farmers' market on Sunday and enjoy local musicians at their Northwest best. We would recommend Luna's for seafood, and Bread and Roses for baked goods. If your family is looking for a relaxing and private escape, this home is the one for you! 🌊� 🌲�

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Spent Memorial Day Weekend in Yachats at this beautiful home with a great beach view! The house is quiet, comfortable (amazing kitchen!), and within easy walking distance to local shops and restaurants.

We had a wonderful time, and we definitely look forward to coming back!

Fabulous view and great house

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for us and all our kids. Plenty of space and I was really appreciative of the extra blankets and pillows and sleeping pads, as despite plenty of beds, one of my sons didn't want to share and made a very cozy nest on the floor. Thanks for helping us have a nice little vacation.

Ideal Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an ideal weekend at the Overlook home in Yachats. The comfortable layout of the house provided a perfect space for sharing food and laughter and games of all kinds. The Overlook has that great balance of epic coastal views from the picture windows and wrap around porch, and easily walkable access to the goodness of Yachats and multiple different, interesting beaches. Everyone in the group, including dogs and babies, felt like they had enough space to come together in the main room as well as spread out. And the mud/game room was much appreciated during a wet spring weekend. The owner quickly answered all questions pre-booking and made the booking process simple and pleasant. I highly recommend this rental as a relaxing home base to explore one of Oregon's best little beach towns!
