SWEET HOMES RENTALS brings you the Zen House, a peaceful beach retreat in Yachats. This is a romantic, Zen, one-of-a-kind home with easy, safe access to a gorgeous sandy beach, and ocean views filtered through trees. Renovated in 2008, this home has a lovely living/dining area, unique furniture and decor, and an upper deck. Relax and refresh in the Asian bath and spa room, which is equipped with a gas stove, a cedar sauna, a two-person Japanese soaking tub, and glass brick shower which juts out into the garden to capture the morning sun, which filters through the surrounding greenery, offering a hint of nature while you shower. Wake up in the morning and wander into your private meditation garden where you can follow the trails and explore the abundance of nature, or sit and listen to the sounds of the ocean and the birds. Or, perhaps later you'll sip tea, coffee, or wine on the upstairs deck while listening to the waves and looking at the ocean. This home offers an abundance of options for relaxing and having fun, both inside and outside. If you are feeling more energetic, stroll two minutes away to a beautiful, wide, sandy beach that goes on for miles. This two bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home has a great layout. The master bedroom is on the second floor of the main house; the second bedroom is a studio apartment above the garage with a private entrance. The studio has a double bed, sink, refrigerator, and TV/Cable. A second story deck connects the master bedroom and the studio apartment, providing both great privacy and separation, but also connectivity when desired. There is a second bathroom with a shower in the garage below the studio apartment. Be our guest and enjoy the wonderful ambiance of this Asian-style retreat home. This is definitely a one-of-a-kind experience, that will complement your special vacation, honeymoon, or family getaway.

Amazing house and garden! We will take the memory of the week here home to sustain us through the long, dry summer. (The online pictures don't do the place justice). Our favorites:
1. Miles of sand beach almost ours alone.
2. Amazing garden and shower that shares it.
3. Soaking tub
4. Sleeping in the trees to the sound of the ocean.
Hope to come back this winter for storm watching!
This house was clean and well-maintained. We really researched our options before choosing this home for our stay at the coast, and this home delivered. The owner was helpful, responsive, and easy to work with. We liked being a very short walk to the beach. The home worked well for us and our 2 young children (7 month old and 3 year old). They actually slept in the walk in closet off the main bedroom and it worked great! Grandma and Grandpa joined us and stayed above the garage. They were very pleased with their room, and the separation from the main house was also some nice privacy. The locals in Yachats were so welcoming and friendly. We especially enjoyed the food/music at the Drift Inn. We loved seeing Devil's Churn at high tide, and did some hiking in Cape Perpetua. We would definitely recommend this home to friends and relatives.
The Zen house was a wonderful retreat for myself and my sweetie. We were just a heartbeat away from cape perpetua where we hiked to the top (you can drive) for an outstanding view of the coast. We also went to several little stops right after cape perpetua Devils churn and several beaches strawberry hill to name one and found lots of agates and shells. The house is up for sale so we had tons of cars stop in the driveway and turn around and anytime we were out with the animals people stopped and asked about the place which was a bit annoying. The place does have a completely separate room but I do not feel this is a comfortable retreat for 5 people if you are looking to congregate play games as the living room truly only has comfortable seating for two. The futon is very old and I don't believe usable for an adult only a small child my family actually slept on the recliners which are extremely comfortable. The soaking tub and sauna and shower are as many have said the highlight of this home and honestly would bring me back again. The trail they talk about that is down the road away is less steep but if you have anybody who is not a strong walker as my mother was not it is jagged rocks and we all had to assist her. You have a beautiful ocean view from the top master and the windows on this room are out of this world for your morning and evening view you will not want to close the drapes. The deck is awesome and the star filled sky was spectacular. Overall my stay here was fabulous I would only recommend this place for couples personally but overall it was a spectacular vacation and I'm zen fully happy
Aloha, My stay with me 9-year old daughter was excellent. Terrific location about a block down an unpaved road to a lovely, broad, and clean beach and only a few minutes from Yachats. The house itself was cherry--well-appointed with a fine kitchen and utensils, lovely and spacious bedrooms with quality bedding, and a comfy if cozy living room/dining room. The best was the shower, huge and deep bathtub, and sauna. Outstanding features that added to our visit. Finally, our host was very welcoming and understanding, deducting a pet fee (paid in advance) when she discovered we'd come without one. I'd not asked, mind you, she just volunteered to do it! Oh, I have to add that my young daughter especially appreciated the well-tended flower garden and separate bedroom over the garage.
When we first arrived, we found that we liked The Zen House very much. And as the days passed, we grew to like it more and more. The owners obviously love their place, and have added many creative touches that add to the efficiency and rustic charm of this cozy home. Immaculately clean, well-equipped kitchen, abundant electrical outlets, reliable WiFi, superb sauna and 2-person soaking tub, delightful garden, second story deck with partial ocean view, and comfortable living area. The broad, 6+ mile beach, perfect for long strolls can be accessed just 200' away, and both Yachats to the south and Waldport to the north can be reached easily on foot, especially at low tide. Zen is also perfect for dogs. Our two dachshunds loved the sights and scents of the garden, and running free on the beach. This home is a gem in our favorite part of the Oregon coast and we look forward to our next visit.
You may see reviews of this place that point out flaws that are unforgivable, but take them with a grain of salt. They tell only a small part of their story. Most people who stay here are enjoying Zen for all its worth and not picking out the imperfections that come with any structure this age. It is as wonderful as portrayed online, and fairly priced. Please read the owners' response to complaints & know that they care for this haven they are renting. If you're appreciative, objective and optimistic, you'll enjoy your stay beyond description. If you are more picky and anal retentive, you will find things for your self-fulfilling prophecy. This place is zen if you let it be, no place is zen if you don't. We loved it and are planning our return. You should try it, and you'll probably do the same.
The online description of the house and beach access were not completely accurate. This is not a three bathroom house, as the master bath consists of only a toilet and sink (technically making it a 1/2 bath). The only shower facility in the main house is the glass block shower downstairs off the spa room. This wasn't made clear in the description or floor plan of the property. The bathroom for the studio apartment above the garage is down a long flight of stairs and in a back corner of the garage. With our vehicle parked inside the garage, the access to that bathroom was a tight squeeze along the wall. The sink and refrigerator in the studio apartment weren't operable during our stay. The cable TV never worked in the studio apartment the whole time we were there. We contacted the manager about the TV, but nothing was done to correct it. The beach access had washed out in a storm sometime ago and the only safe access was a short block away - not an issue for us, but could have been for others. The zen garden obviously needed attention as it had become overgrown. The deck and the furniture on the deck were in serious need of a good cleaning - we didn't use them at all during our stay. The bath towels were in the dryer when we arrived and the manager took them out, folded them and left them on top of the dryer in the laundry room. Certainly not the sanitized, fluffed and folded laundry service that we had been told to expect. This review sounds very negative, but we did enjoy our time at this property. We just felt it wasn't exactly as advertised and we wanted to let potential future renters know about our experience. We've rented houses on the Oregon coast in the past and we will rent them in the future. We prefer renting houses over staying in a hotel/motel. While we enjoyed our stay, given all of the issues we experienced, we probably will choose a different property the next time we're vacationing at the Oregon coast.
