Wonderful Manzanita Oregon Beach House Retreat with DSL internet access ( WiFi wireless internet access).
Nestled below majestic Neahkahnie Mountain on the north side of Manzanita, this home is a tranquil romantic retreat or family paradise vacation at any time of year.
Three bedroom, two bath beach vacation home is situated on a large lot in a beautiful setting. Large panoramic windows overlook Neah-kah-nie Mountain and meadows where the resident elk often graze. There is a nice view from every room. (the photo of the beach is not the view from the house, it is the beach you see when you walk 5-7 minutes down the street.) This location is very unique. You look outside and feel like you are in the mountains and walk 5 minutes down the street to a gorgeous beach! Downtown Manzanita is close by as well.
This Manzanita vacation home has beautiful hardwood floors, high-end linens and a fully equipped kitchen.
We took pride to provide the highest quality furnishings, linens and kitchenware. The sheets are high thread count 100% cotton, the duvet covered comforters and pillows are high-end down and the towels are plush and soft. Each room is designed very tastefully. We have children, so we decorated the twin room with them in mind. (Regatta theme) There are also books, board games and dvds for all ages, child's table and chairs and a large yard to run and play with a tree house and swing set (tire swing and climbing platform).
We love to cook (and eat) and invite you to take full advantage of our amply equipped kitchen. There is a coffee maker, toaster and microwave, waffle maker, rice cooker, roaster, grill, blender, popcorn maker...and much more. There is a deck, table and chairs in the back and a charcoal barbecue for outside grilling.
Just a short 5-7 minute walk to a spectacular beach (see photo of beach) and a one mile walk to downtown Manzanita, Oregon.
This home is a wonderful place to have a fun, relaxing family vacation or a romantic beach getaway.

Here's some information about things to do in or near Manzanita.
Oswald West State Park is located a few miles north of our house. This is a great place for the family, and one of our favorite destinations. The short walk from the parking lots to the beach is beautiful (rain forest with bridges, rivers etc) and the beach is wonderful.
Hug Point - about 10 minute drive north of our house on HWY 101. During low tide, you can go inside caves and see lots of sea life in tidepools.
Arcadia Beach - just north of Hug Point. It's best during low tide. Beautiful beach, lots of tide pools and large rocks jutting out of the water.
In Manzanita, you have everything you need from ice cream stores to very nice restaurants. You can go horseback riding, rent a kayak, rent a surfboard (Oswald West beach is great for surfing), go fishing in Nehalem River just south of Manzanita. The mountain you see from our house is called Neahkahnie Mountain. There's great trails to hike, and an amazing view of the coast.
Nehalem, couple miles south of Manzanita, is located on the Nehalem River which empties into Nehalem Bay. The river offers excellent fishing. The Nehalem Dock offers a small float with benches for sitting and enjoying the peace of the river (located next door to Nehalem Dock Restaurant). There is a public boat launch just south of Nehalem with a large parking lot and easy access for kayakers wishing to paddle on the river or up to the estuary at Wheeler. Wheeler, a few south of Nehalem offers several large antique stores. It's a small but nice town to visit.
Tillamook is about 30 minutes south and they have tours at the Tillamook Cheese factory. I prefer to be outside, but the kids enjoyed it. There is also an Air Museum in Tillamook.
If you chose to not go anywhere but the beach down the street, that's great too. The attached picture of my son walking on our beach at sunset.

About: I discovered the magic of Manzanita in 1996 when I was in Air Force flight training in Southern Oregon. On the weekends,we would take the opportunity to explore the Pacific Northwest. The most memorable was one to Manzanita. We flew into the small airstrip at Nehalem State Park (south end of Manzanita) and walked into town. Immediately I knew this town was very special. The beaches, the mountain, the sunset, the quaint town and all it had to offer were incredible. Years later, after having traveled extensively, I realized even more how amazing Manzanita is and decided it was the place I wanted to spend vacations with the family and friends... so I returned to find the perfect home for us. We found it!
As with Manzanita, our home is unique and wonderful.
We are happy to share it with you. It's perfect for a family vacation or a romantic getaway.
Why Manzanita: Our home is located only a short walk to Manzanita beach, yet its tranquil and sunny location is sheltered from the wind by Neahkahnie Mtn. It's the perfect spot to relax after a day at the beach. The kids can play in the huge backyard with the swings, tree house, kids deck...while you relax in the house or our lovely main patio deck. We have Wi-Fi throughout the house and also the deck so you can work while sitting outside amongst nature.
The town of Manzanita with its unique shops and restaurants is close. Manzanita also has an excellent 9-hole golf course.
This town is surrounded by Nehalem Bay State Park to the south, with a boat launch, horseback riding,trails for hiking and biking, and Oswald West State Park to the north, with hiking trails and a spectacular surfing beach (Short Sands Beach). The trail head of Neahkahnie Mtn is only a mile from the house with a challenging hike that rewards you with beautiful views. There are endless things to do and see: clamming, fishing, hiking, mushroom hunting (best in the fall), biking, beach combing, golfing, horseback riding, shopping, day trips to Cannon Beach, Astoria, Tillamook..or just relaxing at the beach down the street or at our wonderful house.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Huge yard with tire swing, tree house. Fully loaded kitchen with rice maker, waffle maker, high end pots and pans, blender, griddle, much more.
It's perfect for families with children, young and old. For families with small children, we have a jogger, small table and chairs, high chair, pack n play, toddler cot, safety railing for a twin bed and much more. If flying in, there's not much you need to bring.
