The perfect spot on a magnificent stretch of sandy beach is waiting for a relaxing couples' gathering or a family getaway! Halfway between the quaint Oregon beach towns of Yachats and Waldport, this tastefully remodeled beachfront home provides the perfect getaway for up to 10 people. Just 18 steps down your private stairway to the beach, Heron Song is located on a quiet dead end street with ample parking and features a fenced yard with lawn area, hot tub, and expansive deck overlooking Tillicum Beach.
The home features a Queen bed and full bath on first floor, a second King suite with an ocean view and full bath upstairs, and a detached second floor master suite with Queen bed, full bath and ocean view! Cozy up to a wood fire in the living room (or make one on the beach!), whale watch from the comfort of two big leather chairs inside or on the large deck overlooking the ocean and watch the glorious sunset over the Pacific Ocean from your private perch above the beach. The master suite has a sun room with a magnificent ocean view, a double futon fold out, full bath with shower, small refrigerator, two burner stove, microwave and toaster oven. If you choose, you never have to leave this romantic suite!
The home has wifi, flat screen TVs, and DVD players. Take a 3.5 mile walk down the beach to explore the charming and artsy town of Yachats, go another few miles south to hike the magnificent Cape Perpetua State Park with tidepools and breathtaking beach and mountain paths to meander. And 3.5 miles north enjoy the beach town of Waldport, rent a boat and rings to go crabbing, or go on up to Newport and enjoy a bowl of hot chowder from The Chowder Bowl.

This house is right on the beach with an all-window view across the front of the house. The three bedrooms, including the guest house, are all comfortable, and 3 bathrooms accommodates everyone. Many condiments and all paper supplies are present, and the washer and dryer worked well.
The six of us (three couples) were so happy here and were so sad when we had to leave after our stay. The photos are just like the property, but no photo can capture the feeling of waking up to the Pacific Ocean. In mid-August, the water was too cold for swimming but the fog and mist make for a remarkable landscape. We also enjoyed the opportunity to have a fire on the beach. We would love to return to Heron Song when we next come to Oregon but we'll make sure we book a whole week next time.
Glorious sunshine helped -- but our stay at this vacation rental would have been super even if during a storm. The ocean was always in sight -- whether fixing dinner or relaxing on the deck or in the hot tub. We opened the window at night and slept to the wonderful sound of the surf. In addition to enjoying long walks on the beach, we loved nearby tide pools and were so happy to spot whales. The house is so bright and light and comfortable that we felt very much at home. We've rented many vacation homes over the years and this one has an exceptionally well-stocked kitchen. The bed was comfortable and the furniture cozy. We shall return!!!
We stayed at Heron Song over Thanksgiving. What a beautiful setting. The house is all updated. It is so charming. The fireplace was so cozy. The master suite is perfect! Love the skylight over the shower! Kitchen was very well stocked with whatever you need. It was great weather on Thanksgiving Day. We walked the beach for miles. This was heaven on earth. Couldn't have asked for a better vacation!
We absolutely loved our time at this house! It has everything that one could need for a great getaway (including a stocked kitchen, beach toys, games and books, wood for beach fires, hot tub and more). It is in a quiet spot, just a few miles from Yachats. We had the beach to ourselves and had a great time -- whether it was flying kites and building sandcastles, or snuggled inside in a comfortable chair with a cup of tea and a book. The house is within close proximity to all kinds of attractions -- shopping, boat excursions and lighthouses in Newport; hiking and tide pools around Cape Perperua, etc. We would go back to this wonderful house in a heartbeat!!!
We were thrilled when pulling into the vacation home and seeing how beautiful the view was and how amazing the home is. We loved every minute of our stay. Everything was clean and we had all necessities taken care of. Clean beautiful beach and quiet. I would highly recommend a stay here. I look forward to the day we can go back.
My husband and I stayed in the smaller property in the rear. It is even lovelier than the photos suggest, including a very modern bathroom with a windows looking out on the ocean (but not a privacy problem). You could also see the ocean a little while standing near the bed. While not a view per se, it did reinforce the wonderful beach feel. The main view is from the sun porch, as shown, and we spent a lot of time there. We went outside to see the sunset, since you didn't have the best angle from the sun porch for that.
The kitchen was very well stocked, the bed was comfortable, and the location was convenient. The key system is excellent, so you don't have to coordinate an arrival time, which is a drawback on many private rentals. Pat was excellent as host.
I scoured all the listings from Florence to north of Yachats. This property stood out for location, decor and value. Highly recommended!
More than lived up to the great reviews!
This vacation home had all we could ask for. The kitchen and bathrooms seemed to have been recently updated, which was wonderful, but the place still maintained a cozy atmosphere with lots of coastal charm. The views both upstairs and downstairs were incomparable, and as much as we enjoyed sightseeing and browsing the quaint shops and nearby towns, we always looked forward to returning to a welcoming environment in the evening. Going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the surf was beyond relaxing and the bed in the master bedroom was the most comfortable I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing on vacation!
