Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

A gorgeous cedar home nestled in over four acres of dunes and sea grass on the ocean on Oregon's north coast. Floor to ceiling windows flood all the rooms with light. The house is fully furnished with comfortable furniture and antiques. Large rooms accommodate many activities and the deck awaits your lounging and meals. Walk steps through a path on our private property to the beautiful beach; play croquet in the yard or fix dinner on the BBQ or s'mores in the fire place.

Located in a gated community (recently acclaimed as one of the 10 best in the country), half way between Seaside and Astoria, there are roads for riding, trails for hiking and history to explore. Nearby Astoria, Seaside and Cannon Beach offer theater, art and cooking schools. History museums and Lewis & Clark sites dot the area.

Credit card accepted through PayPal.: The house was remodeled in the winter of 2010 and is even more wonderful. Both bathrooms were completely remodeled with new high-end fixtures and floor and wall treatments. The kitchen has granite counters, tile floors and top quality appliances. We installed a gas furnace, fireplace and on-demand water heater and an outdoor shower. The yard can accommodate badminton and croquet as well as providing a wonderful play space for children while adults relax on the deck and new flagstone patio. The outdoor shower cleans kids and dogs.

About Susan Holloway

Charlie and I are semi-retired: he is a playwright and director and I was Head of a private elementary school. We are enjoying this phase of our lives with time for family, travel, and entertaining.

Susan Holloway purchased this house in 2002

Why Susan Holloway chose Northern Coast

I have always loved the beach and the peaceful days, beautiful night skies and the quiet. I wanted a house on the oceanfront, but desired privacy and protection from the wind, This house has everything I desired - nestled in the dunes and sea grass but only two minutes down my own path to the beach for those long walks, watching the pelicans and enjoying the changing sea.

Wonderful Weekend

  • 4 of 5

This is the 2nd time we've rented the Holloway House and both times have had a good experience. We love that we're just a short walk from the beach and the quiet and privacy of the Surf Pines neighborhood. We found all that we needed and didn't know we needed at the house and enjoyed the layout and cleanliness of the place.

Only one complaint/comment. As evident in the living room picture there is a triangular table in front of the couch that has some sharp edges and was responsible for many a bruised shin over the weekend while trying to get between people on the couch and the table.

Despite that, had a great weekend!

Thanks Susan!

Great place to relax, unwind and enjoy the beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife & pups enjoyed our stay at the property. It was a quiet location and pretty private. Our pups enjoyed the nice quiet walks in the morning on the road where there is virtually isn't any traffic and the people in the subdivision were all friendly. The beach is just an easy walk from the house and the beach was never crowded. We are planning to go back again.

This is a lovely spot for a relaxing time at the coast

  • 5 of 5

This home is oceanfront, set back by a gentle rise of beach grasses in the gated community of Sandy Pines. The feeling is very remote as neighbors are not visible on the north and west side of the property, and there are lots of birds and deer to watch. The house itself is very comfortable and gracious with antiques, nice glassware, comfortable beds, remodeled bathrooms, and a warm hospitality with a refined style. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Perfect In Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to go on a last minute weekend getaway and Susan was able to make it happen. Her response time to our request happened almost immediately.

The house exceeded our expectations and we will be sure to book it again! We have stayed in many vacation homes and this is by far our favorite. When walking into the home you can tell the intentional care and genuine want the owners have to want you to have an excellent vacation. The pictures do not give the house justice (in a good way!). It is a beautiful home with all the amenities you could need! The couch is very comfortable and the heated tiles are an extra bonus! The little details that are covered by the owners are much appreciated.

When eating breakfast we saw a deer and fawn walk through the backyard. Shortly after that a rainbow appeared over the dunes and hawks started to fly, no joke! This place is a little slice of nature that we have not been able to find at the coast. The house is private and quiet.

I could go on forever! Just trust me and the other reviews, this place is PERFECT!!!
