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.

Another wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here, and we enjoyed it thoroughly. As before, the house was comfortable, cozy, and well maintained. Even the piano was in tune, and I loved playing it. It really feels like a little bit of home on the coast. I feel like we've found a real gem, and I know we'll be back again.

Just Wish We'd had More Time Here!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 adults spent two nights here and we could not have been more pleased. First, the communications from the owners, Julie and John, and the housecleaner on the day we arrived, made us feel welcome and confident. The house is everything the other reviewers say it is: clean, cozy, comfortable, spacious. The kitchen and utility room (with a nice, deep sink of its own) are well supplied, beds very comfortable, sun room bright and inviting. We brought a small bbq grill and cooked outside on the deck as well as in the kitchen... never got around to using the nice big firepit in the back yard, although it would have been great for s'mores. (That deck is really a plus -- big, sunny, relaxing.) The dining table was great, not just for meals but also for playing table games after dinner. It may go without saying that one bathroom for 7-8 adults could cause some inconvenience, but the public restroom at the waterfront park is a minute's walk away, and it's clean too! Truly, Stone's Throw Bungalow is the PERFECT place to start each day and, after hiking and tidepooling in the Cape Perpetual area and picking up groceries at C&K Market, to then regather for an evening of cooking and activities. It was HOME for us, and we are all grateful!

Great find in Yachts!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 5 night stay with our son and daughter-in-law in Julie and John's very well kept "Stones Throw Bungalow" in Yachats. The location couldn't have been better just a blink away from the ocean and 2 blinks to the main street…we never needed to move our car. We loved the layout of the house with a TV room at one end and quiet living/dining room at the other end, perfect for "Readers". Kitchen had great cookware options: pots, pans, dishes etc…however no condiments, a few would have been nice. Beds were firmer than any of us were use to so not terribly comfy but doable. Communication couldn't have been better, Julie was always right back with answers to our questions, very responsive owners. Great washer and dryer…overall a wonderful stay. Don't miss "Green Salmon" for unique coffee and tea drinks and very nice breads and coffeehouse food.

Wonderful 2 bedrm house in scenic Yachats

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a delightful 3-night stay at this clean, comfortable house just a quick 1-2 minutes walk from the impressive rocky coastline where we delighted in watching the waves crash ashore during high tide and exploring the tide pools at low tide. All the coastline in the area of Yachats is very scenic and interesting, with Cape Perpetua, Devils Churn, the visitor center and many coastal access points (both rocky and sandy where kids can play in the sand and water) are a short drive to the south. We drove the entire Oregon coast on our trip and Yachats is right up there as being among some of the other very scenic areas along the Oregon Coast. It is well worth a stay in Yachats and this clean and pleasant house has everything you need to do it. It's comfortable and affordable. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Everything went as planned and expected and communication and coordination was quick and easy from beginning to end.
