Why Helene Spitzer and Judy Clark chose Central Coast

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.

Clean spacious property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The grass yard was great for the dogs and a short walk on the trail to the beach. The stairs were sturdy and strong. The beach was long and expansive. We want to come back and explore more of the Yachats area and trails. The playground at Yachats was wonderful for the grandson and just a couple mile drive south of the property.

Owner's Response: Dear Kathy, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We welcome 4-legged family members. Why would you leave home and 'have' to leave a member behind. We understand that not all dogs are travelers, but when they are, they should get to go if you want. Yachats and surrounds is great for kids. Tide pools, the aquarium, the visitor center at Cape Perpetua State Park, Light Houses, The Sea Lion Caves and just playing in the sand on the beach. We hope when you return, you will choose The SeaHorse again.

Nice down stairs

  • 2 of 5

Think this could be a nice place if the renter upstairs had no children. Light was pour in the dinning area for games and doing craft activities. Kitchen small but usable.

Things sometimes happen: Upstairs bathroom pipe broke and drained on lower unit we were in. Maintenance took a long time to arrive after saying he would arrive in 1/2 hour. We had to mop floor up with towels, no mop could be found.

Owner's Response: Hi Kathye, Ouch! our first 2 rating. We regret you were inconvenienced by the broken pipe. Our maintenance person does the best he can to respond to emergencies. We did ask the upstairs guests to refrain from using the shower so that you would not be further inconvenienced. We do not provide a mop because we do not expect guests to clean. Re: children. In our 3 1/2 years of ownership, this is the first time this reported to be a problem (including us staying downstairs with kids upstairs). I am glad this only lasted for 2 of your 5 night stay. There is really a pretty amazing 3 stage sound combatting system (3 layers: ceiling-space-solid layer-space to the floor above). They must have been exceptionally loud sorry. Regarding the light. We do provide a floor lamp which can be moved to the table or any other place you need more light. We hope you enjoyed our great rates. We hope you liked the fact we could be responsive regarding your request to adjust your dates for your stay. We try to accommodate guests and make their stay seamless. We obviously fell short here. Again, we apologize.

Very nice, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family was in Yachats recently for a family emergency and the property worked out very well for us as a home base. The kitchen was fully stocked, rooms were very comfortable. The snow at the beach was unexpected, but nice to be able to experience it firsthand with a short walk from our room.

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend staying at Seasand. My husband and I traditionally spends the Thanksgiving weekend in Yachats and decided this year to include our brother and his family. Seasand's locations, size coziness and amenities made our stay such a great time. Games, cards, food, walks on the beach, stormy, wet weather, everything was perfect. Judy and Helene have a wonderful home for you to stay in and I would highly recommend staying here, you will have a wonderful time!

Our West Coast Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Seahorse twice and both visits were extremely amazing. We loved waking up and walking on the beach. Loved having close access to all the cute little shops in Yachats, Waldport and Newport. The cottage was very clean, cozy and with all the amenities. We enjoyed all the nearby hiking trails. It showed all of the surrounding beauty of the Oregon coast. We enjoyed mussseling and crabbing. Beautiful place to enjoy the amazing sunsets. We will definitely return to enjoy more of the peace and tranquility. Loved it!!!!!!

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.
