Overview

About the property

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-8)

This historic 1922 bungalow in the heart of Yachats village was restored from the foundation up, started in 2010 and completed in 2012. It's located at 362 W. 2nd Street and as the name says, everything is just a “stone’s throw” away. You’re just two doors down from Yachats’ State Park where you can whale watch, play frisbee, or wander down to the rocky marine preserve where tide pools and agates abound. Watch flocks of pelicans wheel by, as otters and seals peek from the surf. When the tide is low, you can walk all the way down to where the 804 trail meets the ocean at the Adobe, and from there it is just another short walk along the 804 to the sandy beach – seven miles of it.

Or, head into town, just two blocks away, where you’ll find restaurants like Heidi’s Homemade Italian and the Drift Inn or head down to the Wine Place for some fine wine tasting. Enjoy some of the many events held at the Yachats commons, or wander through the farmer’s market in front of the commons on a Sunday morning. If you have kids with you, you’ll find a playground just behind the commons with the best tree house on the coast. Just a block and a half from your doorway, you’ll find the Little Log Church, now a historical museum, or wander over to Toad Hall or Rain Dogs for some gift shopping. And for breakfast and the best locally roasted coffee, we recommend The Green Salmon, just two blocks from your doorstep.

If you want to stay inside, you’ll find retro charm and modern comfort. A wood-fired stove warms the living room, next to a sofa and two easy chairs and a bookcase full of everything from mysteries to classics. There’s even a piano for the musically inclined. One bedroom features a queen bed and a foldout double. The other features a king, four-poster bed, mood lighting and a faux fireplace for warmth and atmosphere. The dining area seats 6 to 8, or head into the kitchen and enjoy the great view from the retro bar. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and entertaining, including a microwave. And beyond that, the den opens up on an incredible view through four large picture windows. Enjoy the sight of Cape Perpetua as the sun sinks toward the sea. Relax in the cozy sofa or armchair and watch TV or one of the many DVD’s on hand. There are plenty of board games and puzzles in the den as well, and at night, the sofa folds out into a double bed. The bathroom is also fully remodeled with a roomy, tiled shower and bath tub (and a great shower head!).

This little gem of a house is a unique property. The historic Yachats village neighborhood comprises just a few square blocks, and this is one of the few remaining original bungalows restored to its former glory. Unlike many properties, no driving is required once you park your car! It’s great for a couple seeking a romantic weekend close to everything, for a family with kids looking for some easy, family fun, or two couples enjoying a joint vacation. It sleeps four comfortably in the first bedroom, two in the den, and two in the second bedroom (you can fight over who gets the king-sized bed). Whatever your requirements, give Stones Throw Bungalow a try, and we promise you’ll enjoy your stay.

About Johnny and Julie Mathison

We're a family of four with two young children.

Johnny and Julie Mathison purchased this bungalow in 2010

Why Johnny and Julie Mathison chose Central Coast

We fell in love with Yachats years ago and knew when we found this unique, historic bungalow that it was ideal for restoration. Yachats is a special village, like a step back into simpler times. We've always loved the natural beauty, but what we learned after spending time in Yachats is just how wonderful the community is. It's a tight knit community filled with people who care and get involved. We hope you find it to be as special as we have.

What makes this bungalow unique

Historic character coupled with modern comfort and attention to detail. Materials and design were selected to harken back to the 40s and 50s. Very few vacation rentals are situated in this historic neighborhood, so close to everything. We've also retained the beach bungalow style.

Cute cottage, awesome location, affordable price

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat the location of this home - everything you need is within walking distance! The little town of Yachats is adorable and you can easily walk to all of the shops from this house. Grocery store is just a block away. Coffee shop, brew pub, ice cream all right there. Beach park is also just a block away. The beach is beautiful, lots of tide pool exploring. I will definitely return to Yachats again - it's much more cozy and laid back than Lincoln City or Newport if you are looking for a slower pace on the Oregon coast. Julie was very responsive and helpful and we enjoyed having their cute little cottage as our home base. Most of all, I appreciated that they did not inflate their rates over the weekend we were there, which was the weekend of the solar eclipse. It is the main reason I chose to rent their home, as most others I looked at had outrageously increased their rates for that weekend. I didn't know anything about Yachats but knew I wanted to be close enough to be able to drive into the path of totality the day of the eclipse, yet enjoy the weekend leading up to it somewhere relaxing and away from crowds. I'm glad we ended up in Yachats and hope to return there again someday. Thank you!

We had a great stay in Yachats! The house had everything we needed. It was very clean and cozy. The location couldn't have been better. Walking distance to shops, food, groceries and the ocean. We would stay here again!

The home is cozy, comfortable, clean, and so convenient to stores, restaurants, and the beach!

  • 5 of 5

A great value for arguably the most beautiful section of the Oregon Coast: Yachats! We definitely want to come back in the future, and we hope that the owners will consider donating a two-night stay at this property as a silent auction item at future Willamette Apprentice Ballet fundraisers. My dad was the winning bidder on this silent auction item, and he was very happy with his prize...and I am happy that he shared his prize with me, my husband, and our son!

Great home to explore the beautifull Oregon coast

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this home. We even stayed a day longer than we planned to. The piano was greatly loved by our son who always misses his piano when away from home. The house is complete, the beds are vey comfortable. Highly recommended!
