Meet the Neighbors

Simply amazing
A homeowner's perspective

We looked from Cannon Beach to Bandon for a beach home with the following criteria: beachfront, superior quality, newer construction, HOA to take care of outside maintenance, charming town, good restaurants, and plenty of outdoor activities.

Nothing came even close to KOHO's quality and extraordinary setting. Never did we dream of watching the eagles perched in a nearby tree, sea lions playing in the bay, and viewing the July 4th fireworks - all from the comfort of our living room. It is simply amazing.

Koho, not coho

KOHO refers not to salmon — that’s coho — but to a ball game played on this property by early Native Americans. According to our research with the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians, this unique and level bench of land — 20-plus feet above sea level — provided ideal sporting grounds.


Charming Towns: Yachats Top of List

Yachats, the village on the central Oregon Coast and home to the KOHO neighborhood, tops the list of small and charming small towns.

"It’s the small towns that dot the state that really are the heart of this place," note the authors of the list. "Most of us, even if we grew up in a major metropolis have roots in smaller communities, where perhaps our grandparents taught us good, old-fashioned values, where everyone knew each other, and where we developed our sense of community. Here are several towns in Oregon that hold a special place in the state’s heart."

Yachats, they say, is "picture-perfect."



Oh, Beach Treasures!

National Geographic explores Yachats!

In an adventure to explore Oregon’s five newly designated marine reserves, a writer discovers the beauty of Yachats.

"We are in a landscape steeped in some of Oregon’s most compelling conservation history and continued innovation," says Chris Rurik, writing for National Geographic - Ocean Views.

"A compact embankment of life, Yachats is walkable and unpretentious. It has many mottos: Gem of the Oregon Coast, Where Nature Happens Every Day, and, when it’s time for a laugh, Home of the World’s Largest Ocean. Its subculture, unique on the Oregon coast, owes its educated, relaxed disposition to an economy without roots in resource extraction and a relative proximity to the state’s two largest universities. There are art shops, accessible coastal trails, and lots of retired professors and librarians.
