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.

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.
Owner purchased this House in 1995
Why 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.

Well equipped beautiful home
This home was well equipped with everything you would want. The view of the ocean from the living area was wonderful. The owners were great to work with. The only thing to note is the spiral staircase from floor to floor makes this home a bit tricky for elderly or disabled.
Perfection at the coast
What a great place! Extremely well equipped kitchen, comfy beds and seating, ocean views, easy beach access, nice welcome basket with cookies, jam and tea - this home has it all. A small group of women have been making a yearly trek to the coast for the weekend for almost 30 years - this is one property we would all love to return to. Unfortunately very heavy rain prevented us from enjoying the hot tub but it looked delightful. The sauna was a beautiful bonus.
Wonderful stay, a couple items would make it even better!
Loved the property and enjoyed getting to return!
We had a couple of issues with the annex over the sauna smelling so strongly of mold that we couldn’t stay there. The smoke detector in that room also had a dead battery but kept beeping — we looked for a new one, but could find it so had to remove the battery. Also, the dryer seems to be malfunctioning, it won’t start consistently and when it does it zooms stops. We love the property and had a wonderful time, but wanted to share some notes that will help the next stay be even more incredible!
So Nice it overcame very rainy weather
Despite absolutely dreadful all day rain for both days of our stay, Sea Dream helped us have a memorable and relaxing trip thanks to a comfortable interior, very well stocked kitchen, ample bedrooms and bathrooms, fun puzzles and games, a great sauna and hot tub and closeness to beach. We plan to come again. Note: the smoke detectors in the little house room kept beeping all night despite taking out the batteries: needs attention!
Great place to stay... the condo could be better
The Sea Dream is an amazing place to stay. The kitchen is fully stocked, the greeting basket was amazing, and the general location was pretty okay. I have to admit, there is no direct beach access and you may need to walk a few blocks before being able to get on the beach. Overall, it was an amazing stay for 4 adults that have been over worked.
Now, for the bad. The condo that sits above the sauna is pretty musky smelling. My friend actually had a headache due to the musky smelling and potentially the mold. My suggestion is to place a dehumidifier in that room. She said it got hot at night, but the smell... it smells exactly like the sauna. She thinks the sauana is potentially not getting vented properly.. but who knows.
Overall, don’t let the one bad deter you from taking your vacation at this place. Sea Dream is an amazing place and we would rent this place again in the future.
Thanks for your review. There should have been a dehumidifier in the room. I will bring this issue up with the cleaning team & are working to rectify the problem.
The sauna is properly vented.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
All the best,
Mary & Jim
