Space 800 sq. ft.
Property type house


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Enjoy a relaxing stay at our comfortable beach cottage, Little Caper. It has great ocean views and is just one block's walk to the beach. It sits on a dead-end road away from the noise and traffic of Highway 101. The cottage boasts a spacious, wrap-around deck and large, grassy yard, perfect for play and relaxation.

We have completely renovated our home to reflect our own casual beach style, and have outfitted the cottage with everything we would want from a beach vacation rental.

Guests can prepare gourmet meals in the fully stocked kitchen, and may dine either indoors or at our outdoor deck dining table. You may curl up with a book in front of the wood-burning fireplace, listen to music (either on the CD stereo system or through the iPod hookup), or watch a movie from our large DVD collection on the flat screen television. Our home is stocked with dozens of our favorite books, board games and cards for both adults and kids, and a cabinet full of DVDs for guests of all ages to enjoy. We also provide many children's toys and books, plus a wide array of beach toys for fun in the sand. If you aren't able to completely turn out the outside world, we do offer wireless internet. Please note we do not have cable, but can stream Netflix and other online services through the television.

When the weather is balmy, take a relaxing nap on one of our outdoor Adirondack chairs, cook up some burgers on the gas grill, or play croquet on the grassy lawn. You can rinse off with our outdoor shower after a day of play on the beach. There is something for everyone at Little Caper!

The cottage offers the following amenities:

*Two bedrooms with new queen-sized beds and down comforters

*Queen-sized sleeper sofa in living area

*Fully equipped kitchen

About The Owner

We live in Portland, just 90 minutes from Arch Cape. We have two young children and get out to the coast frequently to enjoy our second home.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Arch Cape

Arch Cape is our favorite coastal spot because it is quiet and peaceful, yet close enough to Cannon Beach and Manzanita that we have access to all the shops and restaurants. We love that our home is just a block to the beach. There are no busy streets to cross and it's very easy to go back and forth from our home to the beach. We completely renovated the house after we purchased it, making it just what we would want from a vacation home. We are glad we can share our little piece of the Oregon coast with others. It truly is an amazing place to get away from it all!

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was simply magical. We loved the house, the beach, the sunsets, and every minute we were here. Thank you for sharing this lovely spot.

We loved Little Caper!

  • 5 of 5

This is a sweet little house in a great location. It's close to two beach paths and has much better ocean views than the pictures show. It's in the middle part of Arch Cape where the power lines are buried so there are unobstructed ocean views. The house is very well-stocked and really clean. The owners have thought of all kinds of little details that make it a great rental choice, especially for families with young children. They have games, toys, books, movies, and beach toys. Arch Cape itself is a gem - it's a gorgeous, secluded beach that is never crowded, even in the peak of summer. It's close to both Cannon Beach and Manzanita, so you can head in either direction when you want to shop or eat out. Would totally recommend this place and plan to stay here again!

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Little Caper is a cozy comfortable cottage with just the right decor. The neighhood is quiet with easy access to the beach with beautiful rock formations. For a longer walk you can make it to Hug Point. It's minutes to Cannon Beach for coffee, candy, pizza, plus so much more. Manzanita going south is also a short drive with spectacular views. This was our second stay at Little Caper and we will be back. From Spokane WA

Cute little cottage near beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a very relaxing time here a couple of weeks ago. We loved how we were away from the busyness of Cannon Beach but close enough to enjoy restaurants and shops there. This house is very close to the beach and we enjoyed seeing the ocean from the deck. We loved it so much we stayed an extra night. The owner (Michelle) is extremely helpful and responsive!
