Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Oceanview 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath

If you truly want the view, Ocean Bay Cottage is your spot. This great little cabin with southern exposure and a big deck is situated with perfect views of the ocean, and mouth of the Yachats River. Relax on the deck while enjoying the sunrise/sunset. Views change every six hours because you're sitting right at the tide line. At low tide you will see life unfold before you on the beach, including resident eagles, herons, and seals. At high tide the same view will provide breaking waves as well as the migration of hump back whales during the spring and fall months.

This CLASSIC beach cabin has two bedrooms and one bath.

Amenities include a fully furnished kitchen, ocean view living room and dining room, HDTV/ DVD Player, Wifi, FM tuner with iPod cable. Be sure to check out our latest addition: a recently added mural painted by Oregon muralist Corie Hinton. It is a visual treat waiting for you when you open the kitchen door.

Ocean Bay Cottage is right in town so you can walk everywhere, including at least four different eateries that are less than three blocks away, as well as groceries, fun shops and the Yachats Commons. The Yachats Area Chamber of Commerce/Visitor Center is right next to the grocery store, so stop in for a chat about local attractions. The Yachats area is plentiful with scenic areas and hiking trails to enjoy.

Wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ocean Bay Cottage. The calming influence of the river mouth meeting the ocean tides constantly changing in interest and beauty. The whales were jumping right past the surf and the resident Bald Eagle made his rounds checking his territory. Very comfortable and clean home and furnishings in an early century 1930s design. We could sit on the porch or in the living room and enjoy the view. We were able to walk through the town on trails to watch the sunset or shop for food or ice cream. Heidi's Italian food right up the street was delightful. Hope to be back soon!

The cottage was beautiful and well maintained. The view is amazing. This is the place to stay on the Oregon Coast.

This is such a special place, overlooking the confluence of the Yachats river and ocean. I find it meditative and peaceful.

Perfect for this couple!

  • 4 of 5

Cozy and comfortable - perfect for our last minute coast getaway. Amazing picture windows made for excellent storm watching. We enjoyed seeing the seals swimming in the river inlet during high tide. And, the location can't be beat; walking distance to town. The parking space was uncomfortably tight; we had to pull out into the road in order to open doors and unload. Not sure what if anything can be done there. Nikki was very pleasant and quick to respond with dining and activity inquiries.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review! The view is pretty amazing, and we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. The whales migrate in the Spring and Fall months, and you can watch them spout right from the deck. Hope you can come back during the migration sometime - it is a sight to see. You would love to have you back anytime!

awesome...the view is magnificent!

  • 5 of 5

The house is comfortable, the view spectacular. The parking space is small and since the traffic is usually light, we had no trouble getting in and out on the road. We would have liked to have a ceiling fan as it does get warm inside when the sun shines fully!

We had an incident next door with a house for sell. A fellow was telling everyone he bought it and settled in on the deck. It kept us from being comfortable and that's when we really wished we had the fan. The fellow finally kicked in the big window at the house. Sheriff took our info. This, of course happened on my birthday as we were sitting down for dinner. (the reason for the trip!)

My friends loved the place and we were memorized by the activity on the beach-dogs playing and having sooo much fun! We saw the bald eagles and the whale spouting, too.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your 5 star review. We cannot emphasize enough that if any of our guests have a problem with anything to please call us and talk to us. Even if you have to leave a message one of us will get back to you asap. Sea-Nik Vacation Rentals is a local management company in Yachats. We respond promptly and take guest safety concerns very seriously. We are so sorry that you were effected by this out of place person. Sadly we had to learn about this incident after the fact, and wish we had heard about it from you first. Unfortunately, even in a small quiet town like Yachats, unusual and weird things can happen that are totally out of our control. We later learned that this was not a local person and was picked up by local law enforcement officers. To our knowledge this was a random incident and was handled by the authorities. Once we heard about it we did reach out to you by phone. We’re happy that you loved the house and had an enjoyable stay. The idea of a ceiling fan is something to think about. Usually the summer breezes keep the house cool. Opening the back bedroom windows and the screen window at the back door helps with cross ventilation, as well as pulling down the shades, at least halfway, on the front windows. We’ve found this still gives us a decent view while helping keep the house cool in the middle of the afternoon. Thank you for leaving the house is nice shape- we hope that you return to Ocean Bay Cottage in the future.
