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.

Ocean Bay Cottage is sweet

  • 4 of 5

There's not a better place for a personal retreat, a personal treat than Yachats. :) Ocean Bay Cottage is perfect for watching the whales, the eagles, and happy dogs playing on the beach from the spacious deck. The house is simple and not fussy--needs some touch-up on the interior paint to cover up nicks/scratches to baseboards/corners and then some deep cleaning in the hard-to-reach spots behind heavy furniture. But those are minor issues--something to be done when there's more down time. Nikki at Sea-Nik communicates well, and let me know that I had left a piece of luggage behind--attentive management makes all the difference.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the heads up on the deep clean- we will address that right away. Interior paining is also in the works in the near future.

Can't beat the view at Ocean Bay Cottage. Perfect location- close to shops & restaurants, yet situated on a quiet street. We loved our stay in Yachats!

Great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is an older cottage and so is smaller than most newer ones, but fulfilled our needs. The big windows in the front have a great view of the river and the ocean. My 86 year old mother spent a lot of time sitting in the rocking chair in the living room and looking out the windows. She loved seeing the bald eagles and everyone walking. It was an enjoyable vacation. It was a very quiet little town which my mother needed at the end of a week vacation. We would return here again.

Great rental in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is directly across a quiet (with minimal traffic) street from the Yachats beach where the Yachats river empties into the ocean. It is a gorgeous setting. The cabin is directed entirely towards this great view, and comes fully equipped with everything you need. Yachats was by far the best town we staid in during our trip in Oregon, and a place we plan to return to. This was definitely one of the top 1-2 VRBO rentals I have been to. Have no problem giving this rental and this town two thumbs up!
