Fantastic Ocean Retreat
Fantastic access to the beach and beautiful ocean views. Very comfortable home with a great large living room area.
August 13, 2023 - Escapia
Great spot, plenty of nearby activities
by Haynes L.
The location of this house is ideal, about halfway between Newport and Florence (about a 35 minute drive to each), and just a few minutes from Cape Perpetua Scenic Area. And, of course, about half a block from the beach, though the shortest path does have a pretty steep downhill for about 5 yards. There was a large open living area, with plenty of space for our group, two adults and two boys. Neither bathroom is ensuite, but it worked fine for our group. The air conditioning worked well, though it was not very warm outside (65-70 degrees high for the day) during our week in August. Other reviews noted the dark spots on the leather recliner and the microwave with a non-working display and repaired cracks, and those are still there. The kitchen was well-stocked with utensils and there was still cabinet space for our own food. We found the house very comfortable for our stay.
Watch waves from the windows
Great accommodations for two couples. From the comfortable living room and kitchen we could see waves rolling in. The house was clean and well-appointed and in good repair. Interesting artwork, too! It was a short walk to a paved path/road along Yachats Bay, from which we could climb down to the beach. Nearby we found great hiking from Cape Perpetua Overlook, delicious seafood, and interesting shops.
Great Location in Yachats
This home is clearly built with quality materials and it's a beautiful home. The cleanliness was more an issue of stained seats of dining chairs, several carpet stains, comforter needing a wash. Some of the appliances are showing their age with regard to ease of use. The location is great. Buffered from noise from 101 and Yachats Ocean drive traffic. Good view of the ocean too. Neighbors were great. Our first night there we had an "ant" issue. Called Ocean Odyssey and they had someone there the next morning. Paul from Bill's pest control was amazing. The company followed up a couple days later to make sure everything was okay. This is why we always rent through Ocean Odyssey. They are great.
A great stay
It’s a great house in a great location and a beautiful little city by the sea. The management company was very responsive to a few glitches during the check-in process, as well as helping with the clothes washer. More instructions for the TV would be helpful. How’s that? Yeah well I don’t wanna throw shade on anybody else I say.

We had a wonderful experience. The beach is a short walk away. We saw beautiful sunrises and sunsets every day from a bench by the water. Yachats is a perfect central location to explore the central coast of Oregon.

Blowhole Bungalow was Comfortable and Inviting
by Donald S.
Clean, comfortable, reasonably appointed although upgrade on TP would be appreciated :). Very even Heating and cooling, no drafts or cold spots

Lovely Home Steps from the Beach
This is a beautiful, spacious and comfortable home just steps from the ocean and an easy walk into town in a very quiet neighborhood. It's large enough to accommodate several people. I would definitely stay there again.

Lovely and Relaxing
by Robin B.
This home is lovely, spacious and very clean. Close to the ocean and breathtaking views just a short walk away. There were four of us and we all slept comfortably and enjoyed our time in this home.

Great! Lovely home! Perfect Location.
by Jan S.
Get spot to hang with another couple! All that was missing were some high bar stool type chairs for outside!
Very nice and quiet
by shawn h.
very quiet and comfortable. close to the ocean, clean, home away from home.
A fantastic home
by DAVID E.
This home is in an ideal location in Yachats and has a nice view of the sea. It has a wonderful great room that’s all widows but still private and has all the amenities to make it a fantastic place to stay. Note it does not include TP, tissues, nor paper towels and they book thru VRBO.
Comfortable and spacious
by Bill P.
When we arrived we were very pleasantly surprised at what a nice house it was. It is very open and had a good partial view of the ocean along its several west facing windows. Lots of light from windows and skylights throughout the house. Very clean and modern kitchen and bathrooms. It had a garage where we could park our car.
We had some trouble trying to figure out the television - cable - DVD operation. I called Ocean Oddysey and a guy came over and helped us understand how to navigate it.
We would definitely stay here again.
Peaceful and Perfect
My friend and I enjoyed our week at the Blowhole Bungalow. Location was great, just over the river south of town proper. Quiet neighborhood, and very close to beach access. We traveled very little once we had our “home base”. We did enjoy Cape Perpetua and a couple of beaches to the south in search of agates. We were successful! It was a beautiful home, warm & cozy atmosphere with everything a person could need. I would rent it again and highly recommend it to others. Yachats is a great town. It deserves its title as far as the Gem of the OR coast. Fun shops & eateries, so close. It was a wonderful place to get some R&R. LOVE IT!

Nice place, walking distance to everything and peak of an ocean view. It would be nice to know that the house is in a neighborhood with houses between it and the ocean.

Peaceful Beautiful house in Yahacts over looking the ocean!
by Paula M.
We love this house, this is our second time staying, the layout of the house is perfect, location is perfect for walking to beach and town. It is peaceful comfortable clean spacious! The view is lovely! J
September 20, 2021 - Escapia
Just what we needed. Great place for to older 2 couples.
We made our plans to go to the coast at the last minute and was lucky to find this place for 4 nights. It was just right for the four of us. The house was very clean and well equip with all you need. A very short walk to the beach. We would definitely stay here again when we plan a trip to the this area.

Very nice vacation rental!
by Pamela J O.
Nicely appointed home. Well decorated, clean, and nice location. Our plans was to rent from Wed 9/8 to Wed 9/15, however we had a family emergency at home and had to check out on Saturday 9/11. We completed the checkout details before we left, calling the office to let them know we were leaving early so you could possibly rent it. There were 3 things we noticed that need to be fixed but none of them affected out stay. 1. Fan and shower light switches in bathroom closest to bedrooms doesn't work. 2. Microwave display isn't working but microwave still works -- you have to watch it. 3. We couldn't call or receive calls on our cell phones, although we understood up front that cell coverage was spotty. This did impact us because of the family emergency. All in all, a very pleasant home and we would definitely recommend.

Can't wait to return...
Two years ago, we found this gem as we prepared to attend a family wedding. Could not wait to return after the 2020 closures for COVID-19. Great space for families and the beach access is perfect! Plan to return next year.

The bungalow was great, bigger than we expected, the photos don't do it justice. The site says to bring your own paper products and we did, but there was toilet paper provided. Don't bother with coffee filters everyone brings them and leaves them so there are a ton. We rented last minute and I didn't feel the communication was that great, but it was a great space.
Very pleased with Blowhole Bungalow
by Daniel P.
I, my wife and our daughter were all very pleased with the Blowhole Bungalow and our stay there. The home was spacious, comfortable and well supplied for our visit. The view from the living room picture windows was terrific, and we took advantage of its location to walk along the Yachats Beach Road.
Great experience. Comfortable place.

Lovely spacious vacation home
My friend and I loved our 3-night stay here. Very comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, very quiet, clean, light and bright with lots of big windows but still private. Minutes to downtown. Kitchen very well supplied with pots, pans, utensils. Nice though limited view of the ocean. The only thing I would change is the arrangement of living room furniture. The sofas were in weird places. I would move the larger leather one closer to the TV (it's WAY too far away for good viewing of DVDs), and for ambiance, place the other facing the fireplace, which worked great with our Duraflame logs. Also commend Peter the Property Manager for his quick response to our trying to figure out the TV/DVD situation. Recommend explicit instructions on which of the FOUR remotes to use and how to operate! Recommend seafood at the Luna Sea Fish House and the espresso drinks are always great at the Green Salmon. Be sure to stop at the Cape Perpetua area visitors center and the Spouting Horn at Cooks Chasm just south of Yachats. Awesome!

We had a great stay. We loved the house it was spacious and comfortable. Nice view and the house sits along a perfect walk to watch the waves crash on the rocks.

Beautiful spacious place
This home is perfect for a celebration with a few friends. There are 2 bedrooms with queen beds (and soft cotton sheets) and there’s a den with a pullout bed. Two bathrooms and a spacious kitchen, dining table and living room. Loved it.
Gas grill didn’t work
Not enough TP so had to get some at store
Not enough paper towels (no back up roll)
Said they supply presto logs for fire but there were none so bought 3
Trash bin so full we could hardly fit our one bag of trash in
I called the property management company and they never gave me a call back to say they had gotten my message (listing the negatives above).
With these details taken care of this place would’ve been perfect.

Lovely home with ocean view
We have a great stay at the Blowhole Bungalow. It is roomy and open and worked perfectly for my family. We loved the location close to the ocean with a sandy beach within walking distance. Would definitely recommend.

Great House - Great Location
House is clean and well stocked. Location is amazing, close to beach, town, easy access to other beaches and state parks.

Yachats ocean retreat
by Kim H.
We had a wonderful stay. The home was clean and provided all the necessary items and located in the best location
October 1, 2020 - Escapia
Comfortable, clean getaway in Yachats
Spacious living space with ocean views (tho there are houses between you and the ocean). Yard is well kept and gardenlike, with lovely areas to sit and relax. The house is among other homes, yet feels private and tucked in. The pull-out sofa (third bed) is in a separate little den set up for movie watching. This home feels well taken care of, well loved.
by donna o.
Very comfortable home. Loved the location, able to walk to town and enjoy restaurants & shops while also enjoying the quiet neighborhood of the home. Comfortable house...only downside was the whistling noise made by shower & sink faucets, lack of shower soap & need to replenish paper products.

Lights were on, the heat was on, and the home was very clean.

Fun family setting
by Joanne K.
We loved the open space which included the front room with a fireplace, next to the dinning area, and a spacious kitchen which overlooked it all. There was plenty of cupboards to store the groceries we purchased. The photos did not do all this space justice.There was an extra rec-room where the grandkids could escape to play, turning into their bedroom at night. We were happy with the cleanliness, and simplicity. Loved the location with a short stroll to the beach or to the cute town of Yachats. We will definitely come back in the future.

Wonderful seaside home away from home.
Overall we always enjoy our stay at the Blowhole Bungalow. We feel very much at home there. However this time we noticed that the living room carpet was stained as well as some of the leather furniture.

Weekend stay was wonderful!
by Wendy J.
The home has spacious common areas which is great for a family. Beautiful yard and easy access to the beach nearby.
The bedrooms have full size beds which isn’t great.
This property was very spacious and welcoming. The access to the beach is really, really close. A great house for a family. The ocean is visible but there are some houses and greenery that surround it. Yachats is a great town. Also the garage is usable by the renter which is really nice.

We really enjoyed this home and location .
by Douglas H.
One of the nicest, cleanest, and comfortable homes we’ve ever stayed in.

Perfect location; perfect stay
Having lived in Yachats for 15 years, we were looking for the best rental we could find on the side of town where we had lived. This house fit the bill. It was perfectly appointed with everything needed for a relaxing stay and it is very close to Yachats Ocean Road for the beach or to town. Comfortable furniture and lots of room made for relaxing.

R & R by a blowhole
What's a blowhole? Depending on the tide, wave action makes the rocks spurt and burp in a hypnotic way. We love that, especially in yachats and more so in this beautifully landscaped, single level, spacious, quiet property situated only a short distance from the most magnificant parts of the Oregon coast. How kind of the owners to share. We hope to return.
The locations was perfect. The property was perfect. We will go there again.
Great time had by the whole family
by Stacy L.
Beautiful house, nice fenced in yard for the kids, close to the beach. Comfortable living space, bedrooms and den. Kitchen well equipped. Close to town, walked in for dinner and had a great meal. Hope to come stay again!
Blowhole Bungalow Spring Visit
Except for the ant colony we had to exterminate in the kitchen, and the shortage of some of the silverware, we thought this a very beautiful home and enjoyed our stay ....would definately come and stay again

This was an awesome experience and our first one. We didn't know what to expect and were absolutely blown away with how terrific everything was. When we do this again Ocean Odyssey will be our rental of choice.

Had a wonderfull stay

Wonderful house close to the beach
The house exceeded our expectations. I loved the open floor plan, vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows providing a view of the ocean. Everything about the house made us feel comfortable and welcome. The beach is a very short walk from the house, in a quiet neighborhood. We will definitely stay here again on our next vacation at the coast. The "blowhole" is a rock formation on the beach that shoots water high into the air as waves wash in. It was a lot of fun to watch.

Vacation at the blowhole bungelow
by MJ B.
we were very happy that the rental took dogs and we made every effort to keep the house clean while he was there. we loved the house and would / will rent it again or recommend it to friends. it was centrally located and we could walk to the beach/restaurants and any other site in town. we love Yachats and plan to return.

One of most memorablde vacations we have had
by Weldon C.
This is not a bungalow to my way of thinking. It is a beautifully appointed house with all the amenities one could want. The proximity to the beach and to downtown Yachats made for many enjoyable walks. It was so very easy to go up or down the coast and be to major scenic sites within 10 to 20 minutes. This is a rental unit well worth the money. We will be back. WKC

Wonderful home and location!
by Becky W.
Our whole family, including our 4 year old grandson, and our two dogs, enjoyed this vacation immensely! The house is beautiful! Love the open design. My son and grandson slept in the den which had it's own door, so it was just like another bedroom. Just a short walk to the beach and tide pools. Centrally located, we visited Newport and Florence both. Loved it!

An Awesome Home!

The Blowhole Bungalow was the best home we have ever stayed in on the coast! It was private, spacious and had all of the amenities that we could ever need. It was also just a short walk to the beach. Awesome home, can't wait to go back!
Blowhole Bungalow - David Moreland
by David M.
We were very happy with the house and location. The Direct TV dish is apparently out of alignment according to the test I ran. Half of the stations that should have come in kept searching for a satellite.
