About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Our home is located a two minute walk 1.5 blocks from seven miles of uninterrupted white sandy beach in Manzanita on the Oregon Coast. We are 3 blocks from the golf course and 3 blocks from Nehalem Bay State Park which has a boat ramp, and horseback riding. Go West to the mighty Pacific, go East to the Bay....all within walking or biking distance. Two different water worlds at your disposal. Some of the best nature has to offer...long walks on the beach, bike rides, campfires, windsurfing, kayaking on the Bay and Nehalem River. Witness the great bald eagle, fishing, crabbing, seal watching, seabirds, spectacular views, hiking or just relax and listen to the ocean !!

Expect frequent visits from a family of deer who have adopted our neighborhood helping themselves to our potted gerainiums on the deck.(spotted twin fawns this year)

Our home has a balance of painted walls, wood stair rails, vaulted beam, cedar-lined ceiling throughout with a masonry wood burning fireplace in the living room that towers the height of the building disappearing into the vaulted ceiling. Just built for blazing fires. Cozy, carpeted bedrooms with queen size one upstairs bedroom, along with the queen bed, are two queen mattresses on the floor in cedar-lined 'ship's berths' which are intended for use with sleeping love them, and they are a great place to hide for an afternoon nap or to read a book!!

It has a fully outfitted kitchen and laundry room with a shower for those cold, sandy little kids.

Covered back porch goes the whole length of the house and is great for rainy days and barbecues. Front deck and deck off of upstairs loft is wonderful for basking in the sun while you drink your morning coffee. Downstairs TV in living room is connected to wifi, as well as one in one of the upstairs bedrooms, and both have VCR players for movies.

We invite you to give it a try and hope you enjoy your stay with us and that our home is all you hoped it would be ! Please take care of the house and area for others to enjoy and we are hopeful you will return for another stay.

All the comforts of home

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cute and cozy charm of this home. Was the perfect size for our family's needs. And an easy walk to the beach. The kids loved roasting marshmallows in the fire pit, and the unique sleeping quarters. All the comforts of home.

Lovely beach house and easy access to Manzanita sights

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beach house during the July 4th weekend! The house was just right for our combined families (myself, my husband and our three children, my mother-in-law, and my parents), and the location was perfect. Short access to the beach, near the golf course and the state park, and easy to get into town. The house is very well set up and everything was clean and comfortable.

Perfect location- bike-able to everything

  • 5 of 5

Our family (three adults and three children 9 yrs.- 3 yrs.) enjoyed this gem of a house over our Canadian spring break. It exceeded our expectations. Great location to walk the kids to the beach and located on a quiet family-friendly road. All details thought out at this great home. The garage included a large-wheeled wagon for hauling gear back and forth in the deep sand, along with a few bikes in the garage for short cruises into town. Our three-year old even rode her pedal-less bike with the family into enjoy ice cream and pizza in town. Nahalem Bay State Park is just a very short jaunt around the corner from the home and also a perfect loop to run the kids around. The adults also appreciated the fireplace for reconvening around on the cool wet nights. The owner was very sweet in all of our dealings. We definitely hope to stay here again.

Friend weekend on the Coast

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here with friends in early September 2015. The house is great. It sleeps 3 couples comfortably, plus 1-4 children in the super cool ships berth beds. The location is great, just 1.5 blocks from the beach and close to Oswald West State Park (perfect surfing spot 15 minutes up 101). The house is great with plenty of supplies to make it comfortable and fun (fire pit out back!). We had a little complication when we first arrived and the owner was so responsive, talking to me several times on the phone till we got straightened out (I even learned later that she had called the neighbors across the street to see if they could help us out). Very helpful and nice, great house, we will stay here again!

Great place at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights in July 2015. 5 adults - my sister & her husband, my mom, and me & my husband. My mom had the bedroom on the main floor, and each couple had their own bedroom upstairs. It was a very comfortable, well built house, with a great kitchen area for family. We made breakfast and ate at the large kitchen table, and played games at the kitchen table in the evening. There is a really nice covered back porch to sit and read, and all the beds were very comfortable. The location is a block and a half from the beach - very convenient. I really enjoyed staying here, and would definitely return!
