This rental is just outside of Yachats and is lovely space to get away to the ocean. The house was very clean with all the amenities needed to make the stay comfortable from the well stocked kitchen to sand toys and chairs to take to the beach.

Garden Cottage in Yachats
by Doyle W.
What a lovely cottage! Everything we needed to cook was in the kitchen. It was very clean, nicely decorated and so cozy. We were able to walk into town and not worry about parking. All in all a beautiful week! Only downside was very few TV channels to choose from.
Locely view and convenient location
by Kathryn L.
We had a wonderful stay in a very nice home. My two concerns are:
The house numbers are too small to read while traveling on the PCH
The bath matt is a slipping hazard and should be replaced.
My favorite place!
by Kerin M.
My son and I have been coming here for almost 17 years and it's like being home, it's awesome!
Very cozy cottage with everything we needed. Garden was perfect in AM and deck view and sunshine so nice for later.
Great, great, great; Location, Home, cleanliness, view, parking...
by Ryan F.
This is a beautiful comfortable home to stay at.
Perfect place in an amazing location
Absolutely loved our stay. Great location, beautiful home, and everything we and our dog needed. Looking forward to returning soon!
by Kerin M.
My son and I have been using Ocean Odyssey for over 15 years and they are awesome! We go about once or twice a year and it's a definite lifesaver from life's daily stressors. Love the people and their rentals! I would highly recommend Ocean Odyssey.

My daughters and grandson and I spent a wonderful weekend in your home while recovering from the loss of my son

Quiet and Relaxing Cottage
by Sharon B.
A very nice cottage with a great view of the ocean. The cottage was very clean and well equipped kitchen. It is in a quiet neighborhood. It is pet friendly and provides a nice yard to let your pooch explore and exercise. The kitchen appliances were all in excellent condition. Queen bed was very comfortable and bedding was good. Very nice place and I hope to return again.

This cottage just makes you feel at home. I'd love to be there when all the flowers are blooming. Our only disappointment was the Cable TV was down for two days due to the big storm.

Home away from home
This little cottage felt very homey. We would definitely book again. Comfortable beds, gorgeous view, quiet...

It was a great spot for us and our furry friends! The fully enclosed back yard is a wonderful amenity for travelers with dogs.
October 14, 2022 - Escapia
Fun getaway! Perfect location. Rode my bike across the street into the neighborhood down to the beach! Easy access to coastal towns up north. Clean and comfy with an amazing shower! We will come and stay again!

Great house great experience
by Kelly R.
Great house. Well equipped and comfortable. You can see the ocean from the kitchen window. Dogs were comfortable here. Well furnished and spotlessly clean when we arrived.
Great stay at Garden Cottage
We had a great stay at the Garden Cottage. It was very clean and nicely equipped, beyond our expectations and the doggy enjoyed the fenced back yard. We enjoyed the flowers and my Aunt, who is a gardener, identified many of them for us. Access to the shore is a little south across the street and rocky at that point so it takes good knees to get down to the sand. However we found other good access points nearby.
We did a charter fishing out of Newport with Captain Stan from Tradewinds and caught (and ate) crab, rockfish and salmon. They fillet the fish and cook the crab right at the dock there.
All in all it was a great trip, I recommend this property for anyone who wants to enjoy the shore (and bring their dog).
by Karen H.
We had a great time. Very clean and cute and well equipped rental. Perfect for 3 people. Loved Yachats. Beautiful beach!
Another wonderful week at the "Garden Cottage"
by Peter P.
My Wife and I have now visited the "Garden Cottage" and we love it more every time. The owners have done an amazing job of setting up this house for full functionality for visitors. Yachats and the surrounding towns are so much fun to visit. This year I decided to go to Newport and do some Halibut fishing. I'm coming home with more wonderful memories of the Oregon coast and a freezer full of fish!
The best time I've had in years!
by Kerin M.
My son and I have been coming to Ocean Odyssey rentals for almost 15 years now and it is the best place to rent a beach house on the coast every time! Peter is wonderful and really cares about his customers more than anyone that I know. We had a great time this past week and we look forward to coming back again as soon as we can. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to make some great memories while having a very relaxing time enjoying the ocean, hiking and seeing some magnificent sunsets!
by Kirsten W.
Great home! Perfect size for 3 of us and our two dogs. The yard was great and safe to just let our dogs out. The beds were extremely comfortable. The living room furniture was also extremely comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed and was very well maintained - the knives were sharp, the pans basically brand new, nice dishes! Honestly, everything. There was a baby gate in the garage we used to block off the porch and let our dogs just lay out there. The only one draw back we had with the house was the exhaust fan on the stove could use some attention. Anything we cooked set the smoke alarm off - bacon, a pork chop, sausages, etc. The dogs and our son were slightly traumatized by the number of times we set it off.
Local food recommendations - The Drift Inn was great. We also liked Luna Sea. Great little town. We absolutely loved it there.
We'll definitely be back - and would absolutely stay here again.
3 day getaway
We really enjoyed the house. Such a relaxing area and beautiful view from dining room window. Only downside was traffic noise but that would not deter us from another visit.
by Kay F.
It was an amazing place to stay. Clean and very welcoming. They went the extra mile with beddings and towels. The view from the kitchen was beautiful. Will go back.
Best Coastal Cottage in Yachats!!
This little cottage is the best rental in Yachats! Very easy to locate, off Hwy 101, and right across the road from the path to the beach. The place was very clean, with cute decorations everywhere, and comfortable beds and bedding. Plush towels in the bathroom, great water pressure in the shower. I loved the shower head so much, I took a picture so I can buy one for my own home. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook a great meal. The dining area is next to a huge bay window, where we sat and enjoyed the ocean while eating and playing games at the table. The living room has two comfy chairs, and a comfy couch, as well as a wall of windows. A fenced in back yard with a deck, made it easy to let the dog out without any worries of escape. Very cute back yard, with lots of beautiful plants and flowers, as well as the front yard. I can see why they call this the Garden Cottage (By the Sea). The owners have done a wonderful job taking care of both the inside and outside of this little gem. We enjoyed our three night stay and didn't want to leave. The local clam chowder at Luna Sea was amazing, and the crab cake dinner at The Drift Inn was also top notch. Don't forget to visit all the galleries here, go wine tasting at Daisy Wine Tasting, hike the 804 trail, and grab a double-scoop of ice-cream at Toppers, too. I hope the cottage will be available for our next vacation in Yachats.

Wonderful Relaxing & Restorative
by Tanya L.
Everything was clean neat and orderly. Couldn't quite figure out the bear lock on the garbage can (I had never seen one) but Ocean Odyssey called me right back and walked me through unlocking it. I love the little private pocket garden in the back. It is ideal for a dog owner -- if your pooch has a call of nature in the middle of the night, you simply slide the glass door in bedroom open and its totally secure and safe. Walking to the beach is a snap -- you simply go up a few hundred feet on Highway 101 cross the highway and turn down a residential street. There is a small public footpath that takes you right to Yachats Ocean Road. I would recommend a little better directions in finding the place. Just state that it is a few hundred feet on the opposite side of the Yachats Inn.
Lovely home, watched whales from the dining table!
humming birds, stellar jays, robins, a bunny, flowers, crows. doves.
The "Garden Cottage" is the perfect retreat!
by Peter P.
My Wife and I have just spent our second vacation at the "Garden Cottage" in Yachats and we hope to make it an annual event! The name of this home lives up to what might be expected. The front and back garden are beautifully landscaped and spending time outside is about as relaxing as a day at the spa. Although on hwy 101 we were surprised on our first visit to see how much privacy this location had. The owners have done an amazing job with the inside of the home as well. I love to cook and there was nothing missing from the kitchen that prohibited me from making any dish I wanted. The living area is amazingly comfortable with wrap-around windows that connect you with the outside. The location of the home is fantastic. Two minutes to downtown and a short walk to the beach where I pick mussels for our evening appetizer. Truly a great retreat that we look forward to enjoying for years to come.

Home in Yachats
by Virginia C.
I always feel like I am in my home by the Ocean. This year was different as it has been all year. Love the house, the Farmers Market, the restaurants and my daily walk on the Ocean.

A very nice house
A short break from the city in a very comfortable house with a lovely garden, near the sea and town
Best Vacation We've had in Years!!!
by Peter P.
My Wife and I loved our stay at the "Garden Cottage"! The home is so welcoming! The Family Room was so relaxing with comfortable recliners and sofa. The mattress we slept on was extremely comfortable. I like to cook and I was so excited to fine a kitchen that was so well furnished. We relaxed on the front porch and played cribbage and in the afternoon, we took advantage of the back deck that is set in the most beautiful garden environment. We spent 6 nights and hope to add to that next year. Thank you so much Owners for the obvious love you have for this amazing retreat! It translates well!!!

I had a great time in Yachats. Friends and family visited with me. Walking distance to town and the beach. I'll do it again next year.

Relaxation at its best
by Joy B.
We had a wonderful visit. The rental was perfect for us. Thankyou
Great house, great sunsets!
Wonderful clean house with nice view of ocean beach and sunsets ! Owners are so thoughtful with all amenities. Kids friendly, dog friendly. Family friendly!! Hope to stay here again!
by ElsieJayne R.
It was all I could ask for. Lovely cottage, lovely town, lovely people. And I must say there are many really good places to eat. My favorite was The Drift Inn, Great food, and two fellows playing guitar and harmonica, singin the blues. It was more than I expected. Loved it all.
We stayed at the Garden Cottage for four days and thought it was perfect for our visit to the Oregon coast. It was a miserable, late spring back home so we especially loved the gorgeous flowers. The location worked well for us to explore the area with nice restaurants and beaches close by. The cottage was perfect for our needs (parents, adult son and granddog) and very well kept. We even were able to watch a whale from the kitchen window!
A Totally Awesome Experience
by Douglas T.
The home was beautiful. Everything you would need was there. We absolutely felt as if we were in our own home. We will be bback.
by dale l.
This place was very clean and comfortable I would recommend r this to any one that is looking for a private place for a soul searching father just passed away and I really needed a place to be private it was perfect.
Sweet Little Home in Yachats
The Garden Cottage was true to its name, in flower and welcoming to birds of all sorts. It had all we needed for a comfy stay, and was in walking distance of the beach and the town. I appreciated the slice of ocean view from the dining room, as I was sick and could not do as much walking as I'd hoped.
Came for a long weekend and enjoyed the experience. It was cold and somewhat rainy but we walked into town and did a little shopping.

I stayed here with some family over Thanksgiving and it ended up being the perfect lodging choice for our weekend! The house had was well-located, clean and comfortable. We will definitely try to stay here again next time we're on the coast.

This was a great place for our small family. It was clean, well stocked, and of course afforded a beautiful view of the ocean. Thanks for offering up your place!
Perfect for a couple or a small family
by Nicole R.
The house had everything we needed to enjoy our annual Yachats vacation. My only suggestions are: (1) provide instructions for using the shower. The mechanism for switching from faucet to shower head is unusual and took us a bit to figure out. And (2) provide a larger outside garbage can. It was almost completely full when we arrived. These are quibbles. We were otherwise delighted with the house...particularly the nice, big kitchen.

This is a great rental. I generally do not stay in places that allow pets, but this home is clean and fresh. We enjoyed the ocean view from the kitchen, sitting on the back deck in the sun, and how close the house is to the beach.

The perfect getaway on the Oregon Coast
by Kim S.
The house was in perfect location to explore the Oregon coast. We found the house in immaculate condition with all the essentials needed for a relaxing stay. The property management company was very professional and accommodating. We look forward to future vacations at the exceptional property.

We LOVE Yachats
by Kathy F.
My sister and I first visted this cottage in October 2012 and we loved it. In May of 2013 I came back again with my husband and friends. After this visit our friends decided to retire realizing what a wonderful place this is to vacation. My sister and I returned for our annual October trip and the weather was beautiful again and the home so clean and comfortable. We know the owners Shauna and John and they have done a very nice job in upgrading the bathroom and yard. It's a charming little cottage and we'll be back in the spring.

Everything I Hoped it Would Be
This is the second visit to Yahats and this little home. It is so very warm and cozy, has a great view, and a super place for my four-legged friends, as it has a very nice fenced in back yard. I would recommend it to anyone. Plus, Yahats is a relaxing area, no traffic to fight and great restaurants. Be sure to go!!
September 24, 2013 - Escapia
Clean, comfortable, and very well kept home. Walking distance to the beach and Yachats shops.

Vacation on the Coast
August 24, 2013 - Escapia
Lovely beach rental and very pet-friendly
by Sandra M.
We were very impressed from the moment we walked in the door at Garden Cottage. It is spacious and light and very attractively furnished and decorated. The more we looked around, the more we found to like. We were delighted to find the pretty backyard that was fenced for our dog to use. The cottage was furnished with everything a dog would need...toys, bowls, towels, baby gates...the owners are obviously dog lovers. The cottage has two wonderful decks, one in the private backyard and one in the front looking at the ocean. Everthing about the cottage was first rate...nice dishes, cookware, utensils, towels, linens, electronics, gas grill,washer and dryer...everything a person would need or want. The ocean view from the cottage is just a partial view, not the best we have enjoyed, but the location is great. Even though it is right on Hwy 101, the landscaping buffers a lot of the traffic noise. It is easy walking distance into Yachats and just across the road from the great beach area at the Yachats River mouth. We enjoyed everything about our stay and would definitely like to come back again.

What a great trip!
by Alison R.
Our family (myself, husband, 3 young kids, and dog) had a fantastic stay. Yachats and its surrounding areas were a blast. We loved this cottage! It was stocked beyond our expectations-- it had beach toys, a goody basket for our dog, tons of towels, and a loaded kitchen (minus food, obviously). And what a fabulous location! We were a short walk to beaches and a quick drive to town, Cape Perpetua, Heceda Head, and the 804 Trail. Yachats has so much to do without being overrun by tourists. We enjoyed the quiet, private setting full of lovely flowers and the sound of crashing waves. We'll be back next year!
Family/Dog friendly cottage
We really enjoyed our stay at the Garden Cottage. This was our 10th summer in Yachats and we would rent this cottage again. It was a comfortable house and even had toys and amenities for Rocky, our dog. Although the location is close to 101, there is a short cut to the Yachats Beach Rd, allowing for safe walking into town. We were able to relax for almost 2 weeks and it was nice to come "home" at the end of each day of agate collecting, hiking, bicycling, walking. We would highly recommend his place to anyone, especially if you have a dog!!
