Large home right on the beach, stunning views and room for all.

The Ultimate Gath​ering Place at the Beach! The Pelican at Arch Cape is a large, wheelchair-accessible beachfront home located just 8 miles south of Cannon Beach, Oregon with private access to pristine Pacific Beach where small rivers lead to the sea and waves break on monolithic rock formations on either end. 

An open concept living area with a wall of windows opens the home to unobstructed, panoramic views of Castle Rock, the beach and amazing sunsets.  Take it all in from an expansive deck featuring a hot tub.  A warm and well-appointed home, you're free to enjoy your large or intimate gatherings at the beach, while being within easy distance to nearby quaint towns, attractions, hikes and more beaches to explore.

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 Arch Cape

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.

Home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

We would highly recommend this home. We stayed there 5 years ago and came back to find a newly remodeled kitchen and new furniture. The house was more than adequate for our group of 10, including grandchildren ages 6-18 years. It was Christmas on the beach for us this year!

Spacious and well-appointed house, perfect location right on the beach. Even stormy days (we stayed in mid-December) were highlights because the house is so close to the waves - the view from the living room is astonishing. We stayed with a large group of adults and kids, everyone arrived with high expectations and left very happy - the house and location were even better than expected.

absolutely fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The Pelican. Natalie was super responsive and helpful. The house is adorably decorated, modern, clean, well stocked with everything we needed, and super comfortable. The hot tub was ready to go when we arrived and the views are fantastic - this place is right on the beach! I can't wait to come back. Thanks for everything!
