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!

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. Our team would be delighted to help you chose a home with beds that match your comfort preference.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting the Oregon Coast and we feel so blessed that we were able to do so, with our family, in such a wonderful place. The house was absoultely perfect for our needs. We appreciated the walk-through with Kardinal that we got at check-in. She answered all of our questions and gave us valuable information to help us utilize all the amenities of the home. The home was spacious and clean. We loved how close we were to the beach and the HWY. We were able to enjoy Yachats and many attractions nearby. The house was stocked with everything we needed to eat, sleep and relax. And, even though I was not able to enjoy it, my in-laws loved relaxing in the hot tub. I highly recommend this home for families and would love to return.
