About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 11

From the moment you walk through the front door of this premier home, you’ll be wowed by impressive ocean views framed by floor-to-ceiling windows! The indoor living area flows through French doors to the spacious, ocean-facing deck, ideal for outdoor dining and appreciating the lovely sunsets. This beautifully maintained single-story, 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home provides the ultimate in family-friendly convenience and comfort.

Sleeping accommodations:

- Rancho del Mar sleeps up to 11 guests.

- The master bedroom features a pillow-topped king-sized bed and stunning ocean views.

- The very private second master suite has a queen-sized bed with minibar and half bath.

- The youngest guests will love their own nautical-themed retreat: a playroom with foldout futon, flat-screen TV and DVD player, and adjoining bunk room with twin bunk beds.

- A cozy fourth guest room features a twin-over-double bunk bed and desk work station (if you must).

Kitchen, dining, and living areas:

- A bright, airy design provides ample space for enjoying one another’s company or finding a spot where you can relax apart from the group.

- With granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, the exceptionally well-supplied kitchen delights even the most gourmet chefs.

- Enjoy unhurried meals and lively conversation around the spacious custom-built dining table.

- The dining and kitchen areas open to a tastefully decorated living room highlighted by a stacked stone fireplace and custom-milled fir mantel.

- Build a crackling fire, then sink into the comfortable wraparound sofa while losing yourself in a novel or watching your favorite movie or sports channel on the cable-equipped, flat-screen HD TV and Blu-ray DVD player.

- You can also stream music or connect to the Bose surround sound system with your own device with free WiFi.

Additional features:

- An outdoor hot/cold shower provides easy cleanup after a day at the beach, the covered barbecue area ensures the chef stays dry, and the fire pit on the deck keeps guests toasty even with a chill in the air.

- In-floor heat warms your toes, and dimmer-switched custom lighting creates a relaxed ambiance throughout.

- A convenient red wagon totes boogie boards, sand toys, and chairs to the beach by day and marshmallow sticks for s’mores and stargazing by a roaring bonfire after dark.

- The house renovations included extra thick gypcrete, sound-proofing for windows, and special insulation. It’s also got a 50-foot setback, fence, and mature landscaping. All of these help to offset highway noise, as does a happy family or group of friends enjoying time together at the coast!

Close nearby:

- Just 90 seconds away, a secluded coastline beckons you to explore tide pools teeming with sea creatures, visit the caves and waterfall at Hug Point, and walk through the arch at low tide.

- When you are ready to venture further, nearby Cannon Beach offers a plethora of swanky restaurants, fine art galleries, shops, and the famed Haystack Rock.

- For adventure seekers, Ecola and Oswald West State Parks, Short Sands Beach, horseback riding, crabbing, clam digging, and fishing are all just a short drive away.

About Danna Kittell

We are a family of five, children ages 11, 13, and 17. As an active family, we especially enjoy the opportunities for outdoor recreation that the Oregon Coast offers. Our children enjoy playing in the creek that flows into the ocean in front of our home, searching for crabs and other critters in the tide pools at either end of the Arch Cape beach, surfing and boogie-boarding, and hiking nearby.

We live only 90 minutes east, in Portland, and are also avid skiers in the winter.

Why Danna Kittell chose Arch Cape

Arch Cape is a quiet 'suburb' of Cannon Beach. Public parking here is challenging, so the beach is often secluded. This quiet, yet centrally located beach appealed to us. Due to the outcroppings at either end of the beach, there is more protection from the wind and weather than some other coastal options.

What makes this house unique

Our home is west of Highway 101, and just the 4th house off the ocean. Visitors are always impressed by the outstanding view of the ocean from the family room and master bedroom.

We all enjoy putting together a puzzle or nestling up in front of a cozy fire. Surfing, boogie-boarding, and building sandcastles are other favorite activities.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks for the great stay in your beautiful home and the wonderful weather! Both times we have stayed at Rancho del Mar, it has felt like a perfect combination of all the beautiful, artistic designs and touches blended with a feeling that someone has gone to extraordinary efforts to put special offerings and comforts everywhere possible.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Welcome to Rancho Del Mar, a home away from home. This is a beautiful place to stay with everything we needed and beyond; and the perfect place to stay while exploring the Oregon Coast. It is ideal for families and extended families but has lots to offer the grownups too. The owners of Rancho Del Mar have taken great pride in their home and give extra care to their visitors. The home is not only beautifully decorated, comfortable and very clean but is stocked with what you will need for your stay; with games, puzzles, firewood, sand toys and a well-appointed kitchen. The owners were also delightful to work with, answering all of our questions and providing us with a list of activities to do in the area. They were one of our favorite owners that we have had the pleasure to vacation with. Rancho Del Mar sits 4 homes back from the beach. It has a side yard with trees, flowers, chairs, a sand box for the cubs. The expansive back deck is off of the family room and master suite and features great ocean views, perfect for lounging in the sun, relaxing, listening to the surf, and enjoying family meals too. Inside the newly renovated and beautifully decorated home is a big log fireplace, perfect for cozy evenings or enjoying the view when the weather is less than perfect. The kitchen has new cabinets, granite counters, a beautiful tile back splash and everything that a chef would need including coastal colored Fiesta-ware and stainless steel appliances. The beds and bedding are high quality and very comfortable. The kids’ bunk rooms are a dream, as well as the kids’ game and TV room. There is an outdoor shower off of the laundry room that is perfect for rinsing off after a day at the beach. There are games, movies, puzzles, books, toys, a wagon and sand toys for the kids or the inner bear in all of us. Arch Cape is a small community of homes between the highway and the pristine Arch Cape beach. It is only 4-6 houses wide between the highway and the ocean. It is a quiet community with an easily accessible beach. There are various pathways to the rock barrier and then the soft sand. The beach is perfect for taking long walks, sea-shelling, making sand castles and just relaxing. You can walk a mile up the beach to Hug Point and explore the caves and tide pools or the waterfall at low tide, or walk south towards Oswald State Park and its gorgeous hiking trails. Arch Cape is very close to nearby towns, sights to see, mountains for hiking and many other beaches to explore. Our bear family enjoyed exploring the beaches, Cannon Beach and its lovely shops and divine restaurants, hiking at Oswald State Park and Short Sands Beach, building a beach bonfire, touring the Tillamook lighthouse and the yummy cheese factory, riding beach bikes, crabbing at Nehalem Bay and even just enjoying Rancho Del Mar was its own slice of heaven. There are so many fun things to see and do in the northern Oregon coast. Rancho Del Mar was a perfect home for the VRBO Bear and our cubs. The bear highly recommends that you choose to stay here and explore the Oregon coast. The VRBO Bear

The views were amazing and we enjoyed a few outdoor fire nights. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home and we look forward to visiting the area again sometime! P.S. Our favourite place was Hug Point at low tide...wow!!!

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at this house several years ago and were delighted to see it was available for this trip. The house itself is so welcoming - it’s spacious, peaceful and has everything guests might need. And the location is perfect - the beach is a short walk away, and we also loved visiting nearby Hug Point. The rainy weather didn’t allow us a chance to use the outdoor fire pit - but we hope to return, and enjoy another idyllic beach vacation.

This house is amazing. They go above and beyond to make you happy. The house has everything you would need. It's so spacious, there were 11 of us staying there and never felt cramped. They provide so much for their guest, everything is upscale with a lot of personal touches. I highly recommend this house and would rent it anytime we visit Cannon Beach.
