Property description

You'll feel special as soon as you enter the front door. Surrounded by windows that look out at the Pacific Ocean, you'll immediately feel how special this vacation is going to be. This 12-sided 'round house' is unique in size, appearance, and access to the beach. A spacious two-bed, one bath home, you will be so close to the beach that you might get sand in your toes just standing on the front deck.
On a crystal clear night you might want to try your luck at seeing the 'green flash' (a unique weather phenomenon that occurs immediately after the sun goes down at which time the green light rays momentarily dominate the color spectrum -- look it up).
Walking on the beach immediately in front of our house you could see flocks of pelicans who are migrating farther north than in the past. Or a short walk down the beach leads you to the puffin rookery on Haystack Rock.
During much of the summer, the creek which passes in front of the house is almost warm enough to walk in. At low tide, it's always low enough to cross, leading you to the secluded north end of the beach by Ecola State Park. And, if you're adventuresome, you can pull out our 4-person inflatable raft and paddle yourself up the creek into the natural forest that borders the east edge of town. There you will see beaver, birds, and bodacious wild life. All this within 1/2 mile of your front yard.
And ... we haven't even mentioned the life in town, with some of the nicest restaurants on the coast, the absolute best candy store, and a few clothing stores that make you wonder why you don't come here more often. In town you can rent bicycles, or three-wheeled peddle bikes that you can take out on the beach. The kite shop provides enjoyment for the eyes as well as images of running on the beach with a special kite behind you.
And, if it's raining (a real possibility on the Oregon coast) there are more games, puzzles, books, DVDs, and videos than you can watch in a lifetime.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: The owners are in their mid-sixties and have never gotten tired of the fun they have at the Oregon coast. We are over-worked and under-leisured (is that a word). We have started to travel elsewhere in the world, but always love coming back to our Cannon Beach Getaway.

Why the Owner Chose Cannon Beach:
My wife grew up spending all her weekends at Cannon Beach with parents and friends of the family. When her dad had to retire it wasn't even a question of where he would end up -- at the beach. After a few years, he bought the land and built this beautiful 15-sided 'round house.' My wife inherited it and we have kept it up to code and periodically make the repairs that the beach environment requires.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You'll never get a better, quieter, or more beautiful view of Cannon Beach than you will from the balcony (or living room) of this house. Really unique: FREE TESLA CHARGER.
