About Natalie Smith

Natalie and Kameron both work in technology in the Seattle area and have 3 children. We both have traveled the world in our careers and enjoy traveling with our family whenever possible, but the Oregon Coast is an easy draw! We love long walks exploring the beach for unique rocks, trying to capture the perfect sunset pic from the deck and watching the kids unwind over a beach fire roasting marshmallows.

Natalie Smith purchased this house in 2017

Why Natalie Smith chose Northern Coast

The Oregon Coast is a distinctly special place. We had rented this house with our extended family and instantly fell in love! We were so excited when we had the opportunity to purchase this home and continue to build family memories for years. It's the perfect blend of escape and relaxation, with no shortage of fun things to do nearby or even daytrip options up and down the coast.

What makes this house unique

Arch Cape's beach is peaceful, quiet and STUNNING! Views to rock outcroppings any way you look provide perfect backdrops for relaxing but also opportunities to explore when the tide is out.

Convenience, comfort, and VIEWS, VIEWS, VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at the Pelican at Arch Cape. The house offers so many comforts and conveniences for those who have mobility issues, traveling with dogs and young children. There are dog towels, leashes, outdoor hose on the deck for washing off sandy dogs. For our toddler, the house had a high chair, crib, pack and play, plenty of indoor toys and sand toys. The kitchen was well appointed and nicely remodeled with plenty of dishware, cookware, utensils for our party of 10. The deck offered unsurpassed views of the beach and was fenced (great for keeping tabs on dogs and said toddler). Our extended family appreciated the large shower for handicap access and the ramps on the deck. We also appreciated the finer details, like plenty of thick, soft towels, sheets with high threadcount (and extra sets), plenty of pillows for all, plenty of deck chairs. We loved dining on the deck and enjoying the sunset. This house is truly special. I am so pleased the new owners are continuing to offer it as a rental and continuing the excellent hospitality. We will be back.

I love the beach access!

  • 5 of 5

We had 11 people staying at the house and it was comfortable. We were so close to the beach, we were able to spend a lot of our time playing beach games and building camp fires. I would definitely stay here again.

Oregon Coast at its best

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to the Oregon Coast for over 40 years - Lincoln City in the early 60's, Gearhart in the 70's, Cannon Beach in 80's, 90's and beyond but Arch Cape is the best- especially for families with small children. This house is perfect- enough room for our group of 9 adults and 2 small kids. We had to go into the RV park in Cannon Beach to fill the propane tank but that was the only hiccup. The reason we picked Arch Cape and this house was the location- right on the beach and what a spectacular beach! We did the beach walk into Cannon Beach but really had no need to ever leave the Arch Cape area. The hot tub was wonderful at the end of the day. Would definitely return to this house.

Pelican at Arch Cape

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our whole family over the Memorial Day weekend. The setting is so spectacular we had no need to venture out and be part of the crowds at Cannon Beach or Tillamook. Just a lovely time with family.

Owner's Response: Thank you, we're glad you enjoyed your stay! We also know how easy it is to just enjoy the house and beach, without feeling like you have to get wrapped up in the town crowds. ;-)
