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.

Perfect location and space for large group.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Arch Cape several times. This was our first stay at the Pelican. House is great for a large group if adults and kids. Owners even allow four dogs which is wonderful. Kitchen layout was perfect for cooking for such a large group. There's a deck right off the kitchen for grilling and storing coolers. We loved that the owners also provided recycling options instead of just adding everything to the garbage. There were lots of lawn chairs for all tiers of the deck. It was really nice while we were there an umbrella for the deck would have been really great. Kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils and plenty of glasses and plates. The house is handicap accessible however the ramp from the front of the house is long, narrow and steep. We had someone using a walker so the going was a little slow. House is right on the beach, beautiful sunsets and views of the ocean.

Our large group would definitely stay here again. Owner was very fast to reply to all questions.

Thanks for making this a great trip for our family!

It was the perfect house in a perfect location for a wonderful family celebration. The bed in the master bedroom was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in! We were close to a busy tourist area but the home is in a very secluded and quiet location. Our host was very thoughtful to have a lovely floral arrangement greeting us when we arrived. The kitchen was well equipped and plen y of chairs accommodated our family of 12. Thank you, thank you!

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.
