About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)


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 Northern Coast

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.

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

Great location and nice house.

  • 4 of 5

Sea dream is the perfect house for a large family to stay at the Oregon coast near Cannon Beach. It has great views and everything you need for a perfect vacation. We had our grandkids with us and they loved the house. Unfortunately when we arrived the cover on the spa was broken so were not able to use the spa but otherwise everything was perfect. Would definately stay there again.

Dreamy and highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. This was one of the nicer rental homes we've stayed in: it's well-maintained, has everything you need, and more. The kids loved playing hide-and-seek, games, and just hanging out at the beach. We went beach combing to 4 or 5 beaches nearby, all unique and beautiful.

A home with amazing architecture that was a joy to stay in!

  • 5 of 5

We all had an absolutely great time at Sea Dream at Arch Cape.The architecture of this home is just creatively amazing! Every bedroom was used and liked by the users.The Captain's Quarters (upstairs) and the Condo (separate room accessed via the deck connected to the house) worked out perfectly for those that were assigned there, as did the 2 regular bedrooms. The 2 kids with us loved having the Captain's Quarter as their home base. Great views from the living room and the Captain's Quarters.The living room was very comfortable and the kitchen was very friendly to all the cooks. Loved that there were plenty of towels for use for the hot tub, etc., and plenty of dishes for 10 people eating all day. The dining room table was big enough to accommodate all of us, and the breakfast nook was great for doing puzzles, of which there were many.The hot tub was enjoyed by several of us and a few of us sweated it out in the sauna! Oh, did I mention the artworks hanging on the walls, hanging from the ceiling, and placed in the windows for light to shine through. It takes along time to absorb it all.

We will surely remember this house if we again need a place with 4 bedrooms. Another couple that was with us is already planning a return with the 2 of us in the future. All in all, it was a fantastic time for all there for my birthday celebration.

Thanks from all of us,

Kaye Simmons

Clean and homey

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 couples and two babies and there was plenty of room for everybody. We were really impressed with how well stocked the kitchen was- and not with crappy rental house implements. The house was super clean but homey. The beach was beautiful. Loved the hot tub and roof deck. Jim was a great communicator and very accommodating. Would definitely stay again!
