About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + TV room, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

There is an ocean view from every room of this lovingly restored vintage charmer in the heart of the Village. Beam ceilings, tile floors, and breath-taking views of the Three Arch Rocks AND Cape Lookout greet you the moment you enter this cozy beach retreat.

This is the perfect home for a romantic getaway, multi-generation family reunion, or beach vacation with the kids. The warm atmosphere invites romance and rekindles relationships. Just steps away are miles of beach to walk, a great little coffee shop and one of the best restaurants on the Oregon Coast.

Each of the three main bedrooms has its own special appeal, but all have a fabulous ocean view, pillow top queen bed; and tasteful décor. Two have attached baths. There is an open room with two double futon beds great for kids or teenagers to enjoy high def TV/VCR/DVDs, games, and music. Downstairs, adults can enjoy quiet conversation; music from your own MP3 player, IPod, or CD; and cook up a storm in the fully-equipped chef’s kitchen.

Listen to the pounding surf, enjoy sunrise and sunset on the decks, and keep an eye on older kids while they play on the beach. (There is a clear view to the beach to the north and south, but the view is partially blocked directly west.) If you want to keep in touch with the rest of the world, wireless high speed internet access and free domestic, Canadian, and Puerto Rico long distance are here for you to enjoy. And you don’t need to leave your four-legged family members at home. Well-behaved critters are welcome.

About Heather Crawford

My husband and I are semi-retirees in our early 60's; he's a former electrical engineer and investments consultant, and I was a community college administrator. We now live on the Mendocino Coast in California, about 200 miles north of San Francisco. We love coming to this house and are happy to share it with you. It seems to bring out all the wonderful love we have, along with energizing us to take long walks and hikes, but balanced by creating delightful delicacies in the kitchen.

Heather Crawford purchased this house in 1985

Why Heather Crawford chose Northern Coast

I've loved this home for over 30 years, having personally restored every inch of it from an aging 1920's beach cabin to a comfortable and cozy ocean view home. When I lived here, I was one of the founders of the local community college. I lived in this house with my young son in the 1980's and '90s. Many of the neighborhood kids were babysat here while we parents socialized nearby at the community center. If you look closely, you can see where the kids left their mark on the play cubby walls upstairs (accessible only by a ladder) and here and there on the woodwork. To me, these are marks of Oceanside history and sweet reminders of times passed. Although we now live on the Mendocino Coast in Northern California, we love coming back to enjoy this special place. The house became a vacation rental in 2009. My husband and I visit 2 or 3 times a year to help keep things in sparkling condition. Though often we work nearly nonstop, it is a labor of love and we hope you will enjoy our efforts.

What makes this house unique

This is an especially well-stocked and well-appointed home, yet cozy, comfortable and inviting. Definitely not your typical vacation rental. You are close to the sounds and sights of the surf and it's just a one minute walk to the beach for most anyone. The beach at Oceanside is unlike many others. Its long expanse allows you to walk several miles in each direction. We manage a morning walk on the beach every day. In the afternoons, we walk to Netarts and get our favorite Tillamook ice cream, currently Mudslide. No matter how hard we are working, we always take breaks whenever the paragliders or eagles soar by. Every visit, we hike at Cape Lookout and Cape Meares State Parks, have a good dinner at Roseanna's, and drink in the view along with margaritas on the deck. Cooking fresh oysters (only $8 a dozen!) on the grill is another favorite. Nearly every night is concluded in an attempt to get an even better sunset photo than we did the night before.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots & pans; everything a family needs to cook. The layout is nice with 2 bedrooms upstairs looking out over the ocean, and one ground level room with ensuite bathroom. This is our second time staying in this house, with 2 families, there is plenty of room for everyone.

Great house, but lots of stairs

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! Tons of stairs though which can be rough for anyone with bad knees. Lovely view and very well-stocked! We'd definitely return :-)

Didn't want to leave!

Clean, comfortable, with all the comforts of home. The view is wonderful, even with the building right across the street. Would like to spend more time there.

Great part of the Oregon coast to stay

  • 4 of 5

We loved Oceanside as a great get away community. The three arches area is very scenic. Cape Mears and Lookout are close by. The house itself is spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

Beautiful home to stay in. Beds were all very comfortable n kitchen very functional.

  • 4 of 5

The view was great but your ad did not state that there is a very large building directly in front of the home taking away from a lot of the view.

A couple of issues are: the toilet on the main floor does not work properly. I spent a lot of time taking off the back of the toilet to stop it from running.

My son cleaned the stove top n removed most of the burnt on food.

Railing on the right side of stairs (viewing the ocean) has dry rot n came away from the main part of deck.

These are just areas that need to be addessed. But the four day stay was wonderful.

Owner's Response: Thanks for letting us know where there are maintenance issues. Summer is a difficult time to keep things up to good standards, and this doesn't meet our standards, either. Glad you had a good time and would return.

Comfortable home in a great setting

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 adults and 2 dogs. The house was a great size for us, with space for gathering as a group and for finding a quiet spot to read or nap. The deck on the ocean side was perfect for the sun worshipers among us, and the light inside the house was perfect. We love to cook for each other when we're together, so the well equipped kitchen was really appreciated. The dining table seats 6 comfortably, and the living room seating is great for 6. We weren't prepared to have virtually no cell phone reception, so knowing about that problem in advance would have been helpful. Overall, we were very pleased with the house and look forward to returning.
