About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Nestled between the Cape Meares Lake and the Pacific Ocean lies the Heron's Nest. With enticing ocean views and beach access just two blocks away, this family-friendly contemporary home has everything you need for your ideal beach vacation.

Cape Meares is a tranquil community with no services but plenty of natural wonders to keep you entertained: From the long stretch of sandy beaches, the bay for clamming and fishing to the historic lighthouse for hiking and wildlife viewing. Cape Meares is also a short drive from Tillamook for quaint restaurants, grocery stores, museums and more!

There is electric forced air heat that keeps you warm on chilly nights, with a wide array of board games, cards, and books to keep the whole family entertained. The home also includes a 32" HDTV with a DVD BlueRay player, as well as a few DVDs for movie watching. There is also WiFi access for your convenience.

As you enter the spacious great room, you are greeted by a window wall of wonderful ocean views that stretch from one end of the room to the other. The oversized leather couches face the ocean and even recline to offer the maximum amount of relaxation and comfort.

A well-appointed open kitchen, dishwasher, and expandable dining table that seats 6 and expands to 12 makes cooking family meals an enjoyable experience. There are eight extra chairs and a folding table as well that could be used for ocean view meals on the wrap-around deck outside.

This two-level home has two bedrooms; the first is on the ground floor with a comfy queen bed and sliding door access to the open backyard, which backs to a lawn and the forest -- great for views of Cape Meares Lake and wildlife, and for enjoying the outdoor fire pit. There is a full bathroom with a washer and dryer on the ground floor as well. The second room upstairs includes another queen bed with plush bedding and a set of bunk beds. The second full bathroom is on the upper floor as well.

In addition, the garage is host to a plethora of outdoor toys. From sand pails to a clam gun and a canoe (transportation of canoe not provided), you'll have plenty to do down at the beach and lake. You can even use the tide clock in the living room to find the best time to check out the tide pools and caves in the nearby cove!

Book a stay at this Cape Meares vacation rental for a beach vacation rich in natural wonders!

About Vacasa, OR - Oregon Coast Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Great secluded little town

  • 4 of 5

This was one town on the coast we had never been to and it was a nice surprise. The beach has a rugged beauty and was not too crowded. We saw a family of deer frequently out the front window. The house was clean, comfortable and well equipped.

Lovely house in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for five days in December and had a wonderful time. The house is perfectly located, with a great fireplace (and firewood provided!), lots of board games, and good kitchen equipment. Everything was clean and well maintained. The owners clearly care about this place and the well-being of the guests. We watched a big winter storm through the windows in the living room. Five minute walk to the beach, and some great hiking trails nearby. We would definitely rent this house again.

Quiet Location

  • 4 of 5

This is a clean well appointed home. It has a view of the ocean and a nice wrap around deck. Cape Meares is within close driving to Tillamook and Garibadli for restaurant options. The beach is an easy 2-3 block walk. The beach is flat and good for walking but also has some rocky areas for exploring. We'd stay at this house again.

Quite Beach house.

  • 4 of 5

I needed a local place to stay while working in Cape Mears and this was a great option. I was able to come back after a day working on my lot and feeling like I was coming home in terms of being able to have all of the amenities of home. The garage was great too: I did not have to worry about leaving my tools and toys out at night. While there was no TV reception and the bedding was a little tired, overall it was a very comfortable week.
