About Helene Spitzer and Judy Clark

For 30 years we had the dream an ocean view presence. We looked at many properties. We had stayed here in previous years and considered it 'our beach house'. Little could we have known at the time that some day it would really be ours. When the Universe presented the opportunity and we were in a position to say 'YES!'. We are so in love with OurSandDollar.

Helene Spitzer and Judy Clark purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Helene Spitzer and Judy Clark chose Central Coast

We have been traveling to this area for 30+ years. We had stayed many places, so good, some not so good. When we found OurSandDollar we fell in love with it. Years later when it became available for purchase we were at the right place at the right time! The rest is history.

What makes this apartment unique

You will fall in love with the location. Wake up in the morning, sit with your coffee on the deck or simply take the short path to the private stairs to the beach and enjoy the wind swept beach. Yachats is just 2 miles away and it a treasure unto itself.

Better than we could have ever dreamed!

  • 5 of 5

I was so concerned about doing a vacation rental since I've done one before. I was in charge of setting up an Oregon Coast birthday adventure for my sister who turned 30, and we needed a reasonably priced place for six of us. I found this location while browsing one day and figured it was too good to be true. I half expected us to end up with a rental like John Candy did in Summer Rental - but was so relieved and excited when we arrived and everything was exactly as described. Scratch that, better than described. We truly felt right at home here, and the owners had thought of everything. Their instructions were fantastic and made the entire process stress free. The walk to the beach is barely a walk, and the view is incredible. Thank you for making our vacation amazing, and we will certainly be back! I cannot recommend this location enough - don't even hesitate, it is worth it, and so much more. Also, don't forget to try the Sea Turtle Frappe at The Village Bean - it's amazing, as are all of their other drinks. Great location, great design, great experience - we wanted to stay forever! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home with us!

The pictures showed what a cute house this is, but it was even better in person. Clean, comfortable, inviting, and kid friendly. Thank you for such a great home away from home. We will be coming back, for sure. It was great meeting Helene and Mookie. 😊?

Yachats, Oregon

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a nice place to stay on the Oregon Coast. We had visited Yachats many years ago. We were pleased to find a home to rent in Yachats at a very good price. The home has a very beachy feel and is very comfortable. The 2 bedroom, 2 bath was exactly what we wanted. I was glad our dog Mulligan was also welcomed. Thx for a fun, 45th anniversary experience.

Every little thing you need

  • 4 of 5

This is a comfortable, clean and very well equipped place. It is far enough fro 101 that there isn't highway noise & you can hear the ocean. We came for the Thanksgiving weekend & cooked a simple Thanksgiving dinner, including a pumpkin pie. The kitchen had everything we needed, which is rare in rentals.

The property is just a few steps from the beach. During one high winter tide we sat on the stairway down to the beach as the waves were reaching the bottom of the stairs. We watched surf scoters and harbor seals diving in and out of the waves. One morning a Coopers hawk sat on a tree just outside the kitchen window giving us the eye.

We didn't bring a dog this trip but dog owners will be happy with all the towels and such that the owners have provided for the four-legged family members. It's definitely a place where we'd stay again.

Per wikapedia: 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.

Oregon coast aquarium is 20 miles north of Yachats in Newport. Sea Lion Caves is in Florence 25 miles south of Yachats. Lighthouses at Heceta Head and Newport. Do not miss Cape Perpetua just 4 miles away with hiking, interpretive center, tide pools and spectacular views. Try you hand at crabbing from the dock or a boat (rentals at McKinley Marina in Waldport or at public dock). Dig for clams. Fly your kites! Storm watch. Beach comb.
