Great for a group!
Great space. A very short walk to the beach. Would be a great place for kids or multiple families; had a lot of toys, books, games, and DVDs. House is spacious and clean with big bedrooms and lots of extra space. Would definitely stay again!
Close to beach walking
Home away from home
This is an older home that has been wonderfully expanded and updated, to comfortably accommodate families who want to be together, yet also value some privacy. All 3 bedrooms have their own bathroom! The house is furnished and supplied with every thing that you would ever need - truly you will lack nothing, from kitchen supplies to entertainment. Our 3 1/2 year old grandson found a hidden nook under a porthole window, filled with toys and books - he was Joyous! The location is convenient to the ocean(short walk to end of lane) and to town(1 mile away) and the neighborhood is very quiet. We would definitely stay here again. The only caution we would offer is that the flight of stairs from the front door/foyer to the upstairs level is very steep with very narrow treads. You have to use them for the 2 downstairs bedrooms.Might not be good for elderly ones. There is a 2nd flight of stairs going from a 2nd door to the right of the front door, which leads to an upstairs den off the kitchen, which
is easier to use, but you cannot access the downstairs bedrooms with those stairs. Maybe one day, Steve will fix that minor problem! But we loved the home, and everything was also very CLEAN when we arrived, which made us feel very appreciated. Thank you, Steve!
The stairs you mention are somewhat steep but few people notice the difference. The gentler, second set of stairs is off the Sun Room and can be used to easily access both floors of the house, including the downstairs bedrooms.
Thank you for your visit and your comments. I hope you return to the Whales' Nook.
The Whale's Nook has everything one could possibly need - incredibly well-stocked. clean and comfortable in every way. Sitting in the open family room and hearing/seeing the ocean was so peaceful. We were especially delighted with the easy access to the 804 trail and a beach perfect for kite-flying. The owner was readily available and happy to answer our initial questions when we were getting ready to rent the property. The entire Yachats area is beautiful and relatively uncrowded. We would stay at the Whale's Nook again in a heartbeat!
Perfect Beach Home
We had an amazing stay at the Whales Nook! Loved how close it was to the beach and trail. The views from the windows were so beautiful. The home was furnished with everything we needed for a perfect stay. We would love to stay here again and would recommend it to everyone!!
Everything we could have asked for was there.
We were very pleased with our stay at this lovely home. From the moment we stepped through the front door and put on the provided slippers we knew that this placed was loved. Children will love the special place, a nook just for them, and games, books and many things to keep them entertained. The adults too will find many choices, books, movies and games. We played same game every night and hardly turned on the tv.
We did cook most of our meals and the kitchen was well appointed with lots of pots, pans and dishes. Even spices and condiments were there. There was no dishwasher which wasn't a problem.
A desk with good wifi was a popular seat for my son who needed to keep up with business. Beds were comfortable and we enjoyed the area and especially the wonderful state parks. Our contact with the owner was readily available and we appreciated his contacts. It was obvious that this was a place filled with love of nature, books and family. We are glad we chose the Whale's Nook.
Thank you for writing the review but I would like to point out that there is a working dishwasher in the kitchen, to the right of the sink. You may not have noticed it because it has a black front.
Thank you for being a very fine guest and for taking wonderful care of the house. I hope your return soon.
Walk the 804 trail to town or the 7 mile stretch of beach to Waldport. The Yachats area offers many hiking and beach-combing opportunities.
