Director of Housekeeping
Alex Sheldon, our Director of Housekeeping, has been with us since 2016. Like many of our key staff, Alex started in housekeeping and worked his way through several positions before becoming a part of our management team.
Alex started as a housekeeper, became a trainer after three months, then took on other housekeeping positions in his first year. He became a housekeeping supervisor after his first year, then our Head of Housekeeping in 2019.
Transforming a room between guests is rewarding for Alex. “I’ve walked past guests as they check into our rooms — hearing them or their kids say “Wow” feels good,” he says.
He also appreciates it when he finds a kind note from a guest after their stay, saying how much they enjoyed their clean, comfortable room during their stay. He encourages all guests to remember to turn off the coffee maker before leaving the room.
Describing his job as fast-paced, Alex loves working with the management team. “Heather, Val and Sheila are just fun individuals,” says Alex. “Even when they’re stressed or tired, we find time to joke or laugh, even if it’s about ourselves. Even with everything that’s going on, our team meetings are bright spots that we look forward to.”
Alex has lived on the Oregon Coast since he was 14 years old, and in the Yachats area since he was 18. He enjoys being near family and living in this quiet community, along our beautiful stretch of the coast. You may bump into him hiking in the area, especially along his favorite route, the Amanda Trail.
