About the property

Arch Cape is a 2 to 3 mile section of the North Oregon Coast. Mother Nature isolated Arch Cape by placing massive basaltic barriers at both ends. Arch Cape Creek and the headland bearing the same name mark the South boundary while Hug Point delineates

the North boundary.

This luxury beach home sleeps up to ten people with four bedrooms, two king size beds, two queen size beds, queen sleeper sofa and 3 and 1/2 bathrooms. One of the bedrooms is located in the attached guest house.

The kitchen has all modern Kitchen Aid appliances, a stove with convection oven, dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator/freezer. The kitchen has quality dishes, cook ware, flatware and cutlery.

The home is tastefully decorated and furnished throughout and also has a large collection of local art. There is a nice array of books, board games and lots of movies to enjoy. WI-FI, satellite TV, and vcr/dvd are also provided.

The forested setting and landscaped grounds are a tranquil escape while the home features decks and ocean views from every level of the 3 story property. The “Crows Nest” deck on the top of the home is a unique space for sun bathing and whale watching or just relaxing and enjoying the view or gorgeous sunsets.

The beach is gorgeous and between Hug Point State Park and Oswald West State Park. Our entrance to the beach is 1 1/2 blocks south.

About The Owner

Mary and Jim, the owners, are residents of Tucson, Arizona.

We have 2 grown children and 8 granddaughters that all love the Cannon Beach/Arch Cape area.

The Owner purchased this house in 1995

Why The Owner chose Arch Cape

We had vacationed in Cannon Beach many years before buying Seadream. Arch Cape was our choice of location for multiple reasons: 1) The wide sandy beach is gorgeous with the mountains coming right up to the beach and beautiful clear water creeks emptying into the ocean, 2) the beach is not crowded and we are wedged in between 2 state parks, 3) the proximity (4 miles)to Cannon Beach(with no franchises) for its great restaurants, unique shops and art galleries and 4) easy access to and from the Portland International Airport (2 hours).

What makes this house unique

Our beach access is a short 1 block walk south. We have spectacular views especially from the 4th level roof top deck. Kite flying is a favored activity and we have kites for guests to use. Beach combing is another rite of Seadream. The current record for perfect sand dollars is 49 in one morning. Hot tubing in the therapeutic Thermo Spa is another favored activity. The spacious cedar sauna is always a treat. A beach fire with smores of course is great fun, there is always plenty of driftwood and usually abandoned fire pits near the beach entrance. Nothing beats having your morning coffee from the local coffee roaster (the Sleepy Monk)on the deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Carol & Betty,

We just wanted to follow up to say how nice of a time we had last week. Sea Dream was the perfect spot and our weather could not have been much better! Thank you for all the directions and the guides, those came in handy. We really had a wonderful vacation.

Looking forward to doing it again.

Great place for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Sea Dream. The house and kitchen were well equipped for our family. The beds were very comfortable. The owners were great and even had a stuffed animal tea party set up for our girls to play with. We loved exploring the area and watching the ocean from the living room.

Wonderful stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful home. We spent 4 glorious nights with a group of friends over New Years, and everyone was delighted with the house. We all took saunas and hot tubbed under the stars, cooked great meals in the kitchen and loved the intimate feeling of the community and beach.

The interestingly shaped windows and decor made it magical, special and memorable.

I love also, that the owners are personally involved and have created a homey feel, rather than a staged rental company.

I would recommend this home whole heartedly.

Wonderful Home in Arch Cape

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our 2 days in Arch Cape at Sea Dream! We have never stayed in a home with such a well equipped kitchen, including spices & condiments. There were plenty of linens & towels, toys, books, beach towels & plenty of beach toys! It is close to a quiet beach where we enjoyed playing in the sand & flying kites with our grandsons. Jim was very helpful when we had a problem. We would definitely love to stay here again!

Cozy, welcoming, unique home, the perfect vacation getaway for our entire family.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 adults spent 8 wonderful nights together, each with our own comfortable accommodations. This home is beautifully maintained and well designed to provide easy gathering spaces for the whole group and also cozy, private spaces as well. The deck upstairs was a favorite spot for coffee in the morning, the hot tub was popular for after body surfing in the waves. Also we all loved gathering around the big table for games and meals. PLENTY of room for fully stocking the fridge and cooking all week. The kitchen is well designed for many cooks and has all the necessary items. The owners went out of their way to assist us with any and all questions. The location is just a few steps from the Arch Cape Beach and yet also tucked away from the crowds at nearby Cannon Beach (just a quick five minute drive when you want a town fix). We all unanimously feel we would love to return again sometime. THANK YOU for sharing your home.

We stayed for a week and we really didn't want to leave. The home is well equipped with quality amenities - felt just like home. Lots of games, puzzles and other treasures for the kids too. Easy walk to the beach and 5 minute drive to town. We were inspired by the artwork and did a lot of our own painting while there. This is an ideal home for a big family like ours. Plenty of room for people to have space of their own. we highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a family getaway!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the great review. We are happy that you found inspiration from the art, which is mainly local artists. When we remodeled "Sea Dream", we were very cognizant to provide multiple spaces for families like yours. We find the entire Arch Cape area to be inspiring. We look forward to having you as guests in the future. All the best, Mary & Jim, Owners
