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 Yachats

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!

Always Wonderful ...

  • 5 of 5

We don't want anyone else to find out about this gem of a house! This was our 3rd annual brother and sister-in-law get-a-way. From the rain to the beautiful parting clouds to the rainbow in the morning, it was great as usual. The home was comfy and clean and we WILL be back for the 4th annual that you can bet on!

Wonderful! The property is very wellkept and furnished . Sit in the living room and watch the tide.

  • 5 of 5

The property is well situated with windows to the sea about 150 yards away. There is a roof blocking the middle view, but to the left and right is beautiful. There is a path to the beach with very nice steps, easy to navigate. The neighbors who were previous owners are very hospitable and fun to talk to.

The kitchen is well furnished and we cooked most of our meals there. The bedrooms are well furnished and the beds clean and fairly comfortable. The bathrooms were clean and comfortable.

We recommend this VRBO highly.

We didn't want to go home

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent five nights here and it was wonderful. Everything was sparkling clean, with comfortable beds and furniture. (The hubs loved those leather recliner/ottomans and plans to get one for our home!) Yachats is centrally located on the Oregon coast and we explored from the Dunes to Lincoln City. We owned timeshare properties for many years so are used to condo vacation-living, but this unit was exceptional in the way it was stocked. We ate lunch out everyday, but otherwise ate breakfast and dinners in the condo. I'd start to look for a particular item and think "there is no way it will have that", but it did! I think the only thing I looked for and didn't find (not surprisingly) was scotch tape! This condo is not right on the beach but a short (and very pretty) walk there. But, when you are sitting in the living room and open the front window you can see and HEAR the ocean - so peaceful. The weather was overcast, a bit breezy and around 68 degrees - in other words "perfect". We drove back into our home town yesterday to 98 degrees and smoke. I want to go back.... In fact, we are already in the early planning stages of renting both upstairs and downstairs to enjoy next summer with extended family. Thank you so much Helene and Judy!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

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. 😊?

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.
