About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, King, Queen+New Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Imagine the embrace of a gentle ocean breeze as you relax to the sound of waves and savor the scent of the sea….

Windows and skylights abound in this 2 bedroom, 2 bath charmer; enhancing your Oregon Coast experience whether you’re soaking up the sun or reveling in a dramatic storm.

Enjoy the sound of waves lapping at the shore as you read a novel in the living room or snuggle in the king bed. Drink in a gorgeous sunset from the deck while enjoying your favorite cocktail. Walk the few steps to the dedicated stairway leading to an expansive sandy beach where your kids can build sand castles while your pups frolic in the waves. If you’re feeling adventurous, explore the historic 804 trail to rocky coastline, tide pools and the bar at the Adobe Hotel (less than a mile away). The house is “one back” from oceanfront - the living room, dining room, kitchen, and deck offer wonderful ocean views.

Featuring the photographs of local artist Bob Keller, this cozy yet spacious home has been thoughtfully furnished to accommodate all guests. Those with mobility issues will appreciate the wheelchair ramp to the front door, large open rooms, shower chair and grab bars, low pile carpet, and wide doorways that ease the way through the house and outdoor spaces. Families will find puzzles, DVDs, water toys and sand pails to keep young guests entertained; lots of table space for games and crafts; and a pack’n’play for babies and toddlers.

Traveling with four legged friends? This pup-friendly home has bowls for dog food, toys, treats and lots of grass to burn off extra energy after a long car ride (yard is not fenced). If it’s romance you seek, you’ll enjoy sipping champagne on the deck at sunset, soaking in the Jacuzzi tub and luxuriating in the new king bed. Need to work during your vacation? Free wifi access keeps you connected and the dining room table serves as a desk with a wonderful ocean view.

The living room features an ocean view with new, comfy rocker/reclining chairs as well as a new sofabed with regular and air mattress. An easily inflatable queen aero bed with headboard and a Pack'n'Play provide extra sleeping accommodations. The new 37 inch flat screen high definition t.v. has all channels (including premium HBO/Showtime/Starz); blu-ray player and on demand.

The chef in your group will love the kitchen, which includes an island with a sink for prep to keep the cook in the middle of all the activity; griddle and waffle maker; coffee grinder and drip coffee maker, toaster oven and all the tools you'll need to create a gourmet feast. Feed the whole group with utensils for 12 and wine/champagne glasses with a cooler. The window over the kitchen sink creates a cross-breeze and the ceiling fan provides extra air on the occasional hot day.

The Master Bedroom has new a king bed and the second bedroom has a nice queen so couples traveling together will each have a comfortable space to call their own. The master bedroom has an ocean view and sliding window so the waves can lull you to sleep. If that doesn’t keep you entertained, the new flat screen television with all premium channels and blue ray dvd player surely will. A rocking chair, dresser and lots of closet space round out this wonderful room.

The Master Bath has a shower and separate jetted tub with ample floor and counter space. Forget something? A drawer full of necessities such as toothpaste, shampoo, q-tips and bandaids will allow you to wait until the next day to worry about picking up your missing item.

The 2nd Bedroom boasts a queen bed, dresser, good closet space with luggage rack as well as a new flat screen t.v with all channels and blue-ray dvd player. A wheelchair accessible bathroom across the hall has grab bars in the shower and toilet area, a shower chair and no cupboard under the sink for easy accessibility. (Side by side transfer to the raised toilet is not accommodated).

The sound, sight and smell of the ocean continues outdoors, as you step onto to the wraparound deck for a barbecue on the new Weber charcoal grill, or enjoy ‘smores roasted in the backyard fire pit. There’s no better way to unwind after a day of hiking, fishing, or sightseeing!

About The Owner

We're social workers who love to visit our relaxing beach home to escape demanding jobs. We have two dogs, Lucy and Callie, who are great travel companions and tons of fun! They just love walking on the beach, which, coincidentally is our favorite activity too!

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Coastal Oregon

Before we bought this house we stayed in homes and hotels up and down the Oregon coast. Yachats became our favorite destination thanks to its small town atmosphere coupled with its proximity to larger coast cities Florence and Newport.

When we first found this home we loved its proximity to the ocean and the view it provided, but thought it didn't look like all that much from the outside. Walking into the home, though, made us fall in love with it. The natural light is wonderful, and the layout allows people to stay connected even as they engage in different activities. Even though it is not huge, it feels spacious.

We also value the accessiblity features - we chuckled a bit when we were buying it about it being good for our advancing years - then I had hip replacement surgery and it was the perfect place to recover!

Yachats offers both rocky and sandy beaches allowing for stunning views. Yachats itself is a friendly town with several wonderful restaurants (our favorite is Ona), art galleries and a variety of hiking trails, sights to see and other fun activities.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite thing about this house is falling asleep to the sound of the ocean; we never sleep better than when we're here. We particularly enjoy the dedicated path running by our house that leads to a staircase to the beach - we take our pups and some champagne to watch the sun set over the water. We're at the end of a dead end street in a quiet neighborhood which gives us a feeling of privacy, but we're really close to activities and restaurants.

We love that we can be in the kitchen preparing a meal and still be part of all the activity and enjoy the view. The ceiling fans are helpful on warmer days and nights but it's a really comfortable home year-round.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My mother is wheelchair bound. We attended my brother’s wedding – he and his wife enjoyed a mini-honeymoon in the master suite – thanks for sharing.

Spencer Street Surpise

  • 5 of 5

This house was a nice surprise. It is a nicely updated 2 bedroom house very close to the water. The kitchen was well stocked as was the rest of the house. It was also wheel chair friendly which we needed for one person in our family. We would stay again. The only negative was that the wrong code was given to us to open the lock box. This caused a delay to get into the house on the first night, but other than it was great.

Wonderful, relaxing week!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fabulous home for us to enjoy a week with old friends. We loved having the space to talk, watch TV, do puzzles, enjoy coffee & a book in the morning while watching the water. I especially loved hearing the ocean sounds while falling asleep! Thanks for keeping the home so well-stocked--it made cooking a dream.

Awesome location!

  • 4 of 5

We totally had a wonderful (just too short) time at the Spencer St. Retreat home! The location is perfect...we have a 2 year old and it was a short walk to the beach, perfect for our little family! The house is comfortable, beds are great, all the amenities you could imagine are included, we will definitely return! The only complaint I had was some dog hair that I probably only noticed because of changing my son on the floor. I highly recommend this property!

Car: recommended

Nestled between the lush forested mountains of the Coast Range and the lapping waves of the Pacific surf, the charming little village of Yachats opens a window to the environment. It is the ideal place for rest, relaxation and renewal, discovery and romance.

'The quiet, unhurried atmosphere of this tiny ocean front resort village offers vacationers a peaceful retreat from the hustle of city life and a friendly alternative to the impersonal quality of a large coastal community.

The uncrowded beaches of the Yachats area are promising for agate and fossil hunting, birding, hiking and strolling, fishing, clamming, kite flying or picnicking. Its basalt headlands meet some of the most dramatic surf action in the world, attracting photographers and storm watchers, especially during the spectacular winter storms that arrive in December, January, and February.
