Guestbook comments from the manager

We really like staying at Shell Haven -- we've done it 2 Christmases in a row now. Our favorite thing is the echo-y garage, which is really fun to play music and sing in! We played string quartets in there this year. The house is comfy and we love the big table for meals and games. It was especially nice to not have to launder the linens before leaving -- that helps a LOT on the last day. Thanks for changing that policy!

Not Impressed

  • 2 of 5

This house is lacking in many areas. The kitchen barely had the basics for cooking. There were only 2 dirty oven mitts and zero kitchen towels. The house wasn't what I would consider clean with dirty walls and dog hair on everything when we got there. The master bedroom has a door to a creepy outside hallway leading to the garage and you can't tell if any of the doors are locked from the inside. Across the street is a house with a shed on the property and there is someone living in the shed who would come out and stare across the street at the house. The house phone didn't work. We had cell service for only one phone that was on a different phone plan. Verizon doesn't work at the house. On Thanksgiving night the fake wood stove starting incessantly beeping and after calling a few times on our only phone that worked we got no response from the rental agency and had to call the fire department to come and look at the stove to make sure it wasn't leaking propane. The fire dept. couldn't make the beeping stop so finally the rental agency called back and sent their maintenance guy who was able to stop the beeping. There is hardly a view of the ocean because of the trees across the street, however the walk to the small beach is really only a block away. The house backs up to Highway 101 which didn't have too much traffic but when a car did go by you could definitely hear it. I would not rent this property again.

No Luxury, nice enough place, though

  • 3 of 5

I can't think of one thing in this house that would make me think of it as a Luxury home, the beds were pretty good, but a king would have helped. Furniture is pure crap. Kitchen is okay, other than the cupboard doors falling off. Honestly, I was happy enough there, but if Sweethomes does not take "Luxury" out of their title, they need to take some of their homes off their site. Just saying.

Our 5th Stay at Shell Haven, and Already Looking Forward to the 6th

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, quiet, and well-equipped Shell Haven has been perfect for each of our extended stays, and our recent 12 days there were the best yet. We have found the downstairs bedrooms to be large and very clean, the mattresses comfortable, and en suite bathrooms very convenient. The 8 large picture windows in the second floor living area give a 180 degree view from which to watch the river, waves, and tide, and the gas stove provides a nice ambiance on a cold, windy, and rainy winter's day. Two caveats:

1. There are 5 steps to the porch, 15 steps up to the second floor living room, and another 14 steps up to the 3rd floor, so those with orthopedic, pulmonary, or cardiac issues should be forewarned.

2. The available WiFi is V-E-R-Y S-L-O-W. Fine for email and reading articles, but don't bother trying to stream video.

We have found Yachats to be far more to our liking than Florence, Newport, or Lincoln City, and Sweet Homes management and staff are extraordinarily friendly, helpful, and efficient. We plan to return to Shell Haven again and again.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! We took my parents and our kids and grand kids. There was a place for everyone and plenty of family space. The beach was easy to get to and the location was great.

Wow! A magical place!

  • 5 of 5

Aside from being a truly lovely home, it's proximity to the ocean and beach offers a TON to see and do. We saw whales through the huge glass windows in the kitchen, the 5 min. walk to the beach was a tremendous favorite for our golden retriever, and us -- we saw sea lions pop their heads out of the surf and enjoyed looking at the multitude of sea creatures left in the tide pools between high-tides. All in all, a vacation worth every cent!

Hard beds!

  • 3 of 5

The house was very nice and certainly roomy, with very adequate linens and towels and kitchen supplies. However, the beds were so uncomfortable that it was impossible to get a good night's sleep. I finally slept on the couch for our third night. We would not rent this house again.

Owner's Response: We know that getting a great nights sleep is a top priority. Bed comfort is certainly a very personal experience. If we knew about your discomfort during your stay we may have been able to bring you something different. Any time you are a guest in our homes, please know that our property manager is on duty and available to you 24 hours a day and would be happy to address your questions and concerns. We strive to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We hope you will join us for a future visit to the coast.
