Why Helene Spitzer and Judy Clark chose Coastal Oregon

For over 30 years we have been visiting the Oregon Coast. We had stayed in a lot of places over that time. For over 30 years we looked a the possibility of purchasing a coastal property. In approximately 2009 we were introduced to this property. We stayed here, loved it and made it the 'go to' place. In 2013 the previous owners told us they were going to sell. We were just in the right place at the right time. Our coastal dream has become a reality.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location. We have a very short path to steps to 7 miles of beach. Located just 2 miles from Yachats, we have ready access to great restaurants and shops. Cape Perpetual is just 4 miles south where we can hike to our hearts delight. Waldport is just 6 miles north where we rent a boat and go crabbing. We are central to the Newport Aquarium, the Sea Lion Caves and many light houses.

Excellent vacation spot near Yachats

  • 5 of 5

The home was conveniently located, clean and had ample room for two adults, two teenage kids and our dog. Two bathrooms came in handy. We will definitely consider re-booking in future when we go to the coast again.

Access to the beach was only 20 yards or so, and was very convenient. Home was only a few miles to Yachats and five miles to Waldport.

There was a minor issue with a small appliance (coffee maker) and the owners responded immediately to a text with a follow up phone call and replaced it within hours .... excellent, friendly customer service in all respects!

Thanks for having our family into your home.

Owner's Response: Thank you Eric. We pride ourselves on great customer service and understand the urgency of replacing a coffee pot. We were more than happy to make that happen. Your are so right about the great location. Out of town, yet close enough to easily go in...great location for exploring all that central Oregon has to offer. We do hope you find yourself returning!! regards, Judy

Was just what we needed -- met expectations

  • 5 of 5

This property is very clean and has all you might need for a relaxed and comfortable stay a few steps away from the beach, though not for anyone in a wheelchair or needing to use a walker. If your party includes more people than can be comfortably accommodated by this 3 bedroom, two bath property, the owners have a like rental upstairs and the neighboring owner's property is also available. All three properties share the walkway/stairway to the beach and a common driveway so the combination of properties was ideal for our recent family reunion group. The owners were timely and responsive to our concerns.

Cozy and clean with a convenient path to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the Sea Horse many times, and would highly recommend it. It is always clean and comfortable and well maintained. The layout is such that it feels comfortable with groups. It's a great place to stay with friends and family. The kitchen is very nice and has a new dishwasher so it's easy to manage group meals. I love the peaceful quiet this vacation rental offers, and the fact that I can include my well-behaved dog! I spend most of my time on the beach while there, which is wide and open and beautiful.

Very nice easy access.

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful home with 3 bedrooms and two baths. Very open floor plan with very nice and comfortable furnishings. Large kitchen with everything you need to stay at home and cook. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is you can not see the ocean from the property. Other then that I would highly recommend staying here. If you can get the house upstairs you can see the ocean but really it would only matter in bad weather when you could not go outside. Pet friendly and very accommodating to the animals. Helen and Judy are wonderful owners that really do bend over backwards to make sure you have a good stay. The beach access is very easy from the property and Yachats is only 2 miles south.

Wonderful place that I highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Thank you Gary. And yes, how we wish we could make the ocean visible from this unit. It is our good fortune to have such great beach access. One of the good fortunes of this unit is that there are no stairs to climb. It works extremely well for both our 2 legged and 4 legged guest who do not do stairs well. Some actually find this unit more cozy than upstairs and for that reason, choose The SeaHorse over OurSandDollar. We will welcome you again when you return to which ever space you choose!! warm regards, Judy

Great Get Away On the Coast!

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 6 people staying at this VRBO and were all very comfortable. I would guess you could sleep 8 with the two couches in the living room if you really wanted too! The owners were very accommodating in answering all of our questions prior to our stay as well as sending us information on where the property was located and other important details. Our party stayed in the bottom section of the house. I know its always a thought that crosses peoples minds when they stay underneath or above a complete strangers: "are they going to be loud and obnoxious," rude, too friendly, and a bunch of other things. With that being said, we did not even notice the people above us. Didn't run into them in the parking lot or anything! The beach access was probably the best part about this property. It is so close and dog friendly. We brought two dogs with us and they absolutely loved it! I would highly recommend staying here if you are a family of 4 or more or even if you are just a couple and want a get away!

Owner's Response: thank you so much for your review. we always hope that people will find our place to be as wonderful as we think it is. It is amazing that the building was built in such away as to allow the quiet between up and down. we have stayed both places with people above or below and are always so pleased at the lack of intrusion. we hope you will visit again!!!

Yachats is known as the 'Gem of the Oregon Coast'. Per Wikipedia: Yachats is a small coastal city in Lincoln County, Oregon, United States. According to Oregon Geographic Names, the name comes from the Siletz language, and means 'dark water at the foot of the mountain'. There is a range of differing etymologies, however. William Bright says the name comes from the Alsea placename. At the 2010 census, the city's population was 690. In 2007, Budget Travel magazine named Yachats one of the 'Ten Coolest Small Towns of the U.S.A.', and Yachats was chosen among the top 10 U.S. up-and-coming vacation destinations by Virtualtourist. In 2011, Arthur Frommer, founder of Frommer's Travel Guides, listed Yachats number seven among his ten favorite vacation destinations in the world.

Enjoy quaint shops, fine restaurants, a wonderful bakery, a brew and farm store and more. Heceta Head and Yaquina Lighthouses are close by. Nearby Cape Perpetua offers amazing views, a visitor center with informational programs, access to tide pools and hiking. Sea Lion Caves are a short drive. Nearby Waldport offers crabbing, clamming and fishing. Boat rentals are available form McKinley Marina.

From your front door simply walk along a path and go down private stairs to miles of public beach (clamming is possible). Newport (just 22 miles) has a Historic Bayfront (shops, restaurants, fresh fish and live crab in season), a marina chartes for deep sea fishing and whale watching, and the Oregon Coast Aquarium. Many art galleries within minutes. Many hiking trails are available close-by.
