A truly magical place

My husband and I married in this house in 2002, and have not been able to go back until this trip. I was thrilled to see it back on the market to rent. The house is HUGE, but only about 1/3 of it is your rental. The property is right on the rocky shores of the Pacific, and you never hear Hwy 101 above you, as the ocean waves drown it out. The house has character busting out the seams! Dragons, mermaids, beads, and many other whimsical touches make this place really special. The kitchen is adequate; not huge or tiny and there were plenty of dishes and cooking utensils available. My favorite parts are the bathrooms, both tiled with fun motifs including the eyes that stare at you. LOVE IT! The little kids room was a huge hit with my 9 year old, and although the house was a little too creaky for him to stay up there alone at night, he spent plenty of time there during the days. The house was very clean, and other than the creaks and some windows that let in wind, it is perfect. The area by the water is pretty tricky for young kids, and I wouldn't want my older kids (12 and 9) out there without supervision. The tidepools are fun, and we enjoyed the adventure climbing over big rocks at low tide to find an archway and lots of starfish and anemone. Personally, I love this house, but I like whimsical and fantasy. Games for us to play, books galore, and an absolutely beautiful view of the ocean. For my family and I, it is perfect. Thank you so much for opening your home to us. :)

Great location Great Place Spectacular Oceanfront

September 2013 spent 8 nights / The house was clean / beds comfortable / best stocked kitchen of any house I’ve rented and they guys liked that they had nice TV’s, and the best part the VIEW and BEACH in your back yard, This does not have a sandy beach you would run and play in the surf but the kind where you can watch the waves crash against the rocks for hours and search the tide pool for priceless gems while watching the seals play in the water and lounge on the rocks… yes in your own cove (I counted 40 on the rocks at one time) the first part of our stay we had grand kids they loved the tide pools and just a short drive North of Yachats we took them to Beachside state park where they have a nice day use beach and picnic area with a fire pit for S’mores leaving the sand at the beach. Since the house sits on Acres you have a small walk on grass down a slight incline to get to the beach area, I’m overweight so coming back up I stopped a couple times but nothing that kept me from many trips to the water and my parents in there late 70’s also had no problems just took their time. There are also several benches overlooking the beautiful cove strategically located around the grounds. One thing to note: if you do have seniors there is currently 1 bedroom on the main floor, the others you either go up or down stairs, my folks wanted the downstairs which has a bathroom, ocean view, door out to a small deck and loved it. Mom said it was here favorite house that we’ve stayed at. Everyone had a great time and will be back. Oh and one last thing Yachats is very close to many great attractions, just a short drive in either direction… Newport to the north has 2 lighthouses / Sea Aquarium / warf area + more and Depoe Bay is a great place to watch Whales and if you go South you have Cape Perpetua, Dragons Cove, Devils punch bowl, Cape Fowl Weather, Heceta lighthouse and the Sea Lion Caves and if you like waterfalls check out Sweet Creek Falls out of Mapleton I love that walk... hope this helps have a great time!

Nothing could describe the House at Dragon's View. It's a lovely fantasy. It's obviously an old house with a mysterious history and it's interior is filled with magical, funny, oddities with even an entire secret room for little children where grown-ups can't come in. There is not a thing one would need while visiting - except, PERHAPS, a sponge in the downstairs bathroom for cleaning the tub! A more complete kitchen there couldn't be. The place is conducive to both privacy and socializing. It's a lovely mystery, right down to the Mad Hare and Mermaid. Nora Stark

Perfect vacation spot

My family and I recently stayed 5 nights, and couldn't have found a better rental. The house is exactly as advertised, and then some. We were comfortable in all the rooms, and there was more than enough space for all. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots, etc., and we only ate out when we were too far away from the house.

House at Dragon Cove

This was my third stay at the house. The location and view are amazing. This year I discovered the Oregon coast hiking trail that is across the street from the house. I plan on going back to this house once a year for as long as possible.

What a Wonder and Whale Watching!

After a year of working hard all we wanted was peace and quiet and a sweet place to call our own on the oceanfront for a few days. We could not have been happier. The little beach and rock outcroppings were ours alone to enjoy, save for the sea lions on the island in front of the house. We enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the ocean, appreciating our meals in the dining nook that completely overlooked the waves, taking some quiet time in the lovely library and sitting room, going for hikes on Cape Perpetua, just a stone's throw away. But wait, I forgot to mention the whales. They were feeding in the water so close to the house that it was astounding. The rolled, they arced, they tailed and they kept doing it some more. We were fortunate to have thought to bring a pair of binoculars. Next time we'll bring two! You will not be disappointed with this place. It's definately big enough for three couples or two couples with children. It was just the two of us but believe you me, it was heaven.

Dragon's Cove Retreat

Totally enjoyed a week's retreat at the unbelievable house at Dragon's Cove!!! It is partially under renovation and when completed will be incredible. No inconvenience with the renovation, the place is huge and modernized where you want it to be and whimsical with tons of nooks and surprises. Very comfortable with gorgeous views of the rocks and surf. The seals are there every afternoon to loll about on the rocks. There is a large grassy area leading from the house to the rocks and plenty of room to have a pick-up game of soccer or set up a volleyball net. I see it as a large family reunion waiting to happen! Cape Perpetua is 2 miles away and has many trails of various degrees of difficulty. Yachats is just the right size with sights of its own and several delicious places to dine. The kitchen is complete if you prefer to create your own meals with the seafood choices that abound, not to mention the availability of god quality Oregon wines to sample. Books, games, movies available with lots of quilts to wrap up in while you laze about. Completely restorative!

Marvelous Home and Location - Dragon's Cove

Visiting with my Oregon friends at this "magical" and comfortable beach home was truly a memorable respite from work life and a great way to celebrate the end of a Minnesota winter. The combination of majestic cliff-side forests and the Oregon coast line's rugged beauty combined to make for a most enjoyable and relaxing stay Upon arrival at Dragon's Cove we marveled at the vista and giggled with delight upon entering the house. The decor is fun and each day we found something different to smile about. The wildness of the coast line gave us many opportunities to see ocean life at its most intimate. We watched seal pups swim searching for a way atop the rock to their mothers, cheering them on as they "barked" to get mom's attention. We watched an eagle scavange a stillborn seal from the rock, all the while fending off vultures. And of course, nesting gulls kept us entertained with their courtship displays. House at Dragon's Cove was a delight for all of us and I look forward to spending time there again.
