This lovely 3 bed/2 bath home has views of the ocean from the interior living spaces as well as the exterior porches and deck! The home is situated on a large lot, far back from the road, with an enchanted forest giving privacy behind and ever-changing gardens to explore in the front.
The deck comes complete with a large dining table that seats six and a propane grill. Ample seating is available under cover on the porch. There is a raised sitting area, which is fenced and perfect for playtime with the pets or the kids, or to just sit and watch the ocean with a cocktail or morning coffee.
Inside, the roomy living room has a gas fireplace, a flat screen television, Blu-Ray DVD player, surround-sound system with USB input, and an ocean view! There is a large, modern sectional sofa with plenty of space to watch the ocean, curl up with a book, or enjoy a movie with the family.
The kitchen is very large, with plenty of counter space to prepare feasts. It is fully stocked with all the utensils & cookware you'll need to let your inner chef out! Beyond the basic appliances (microwave, toaster, coffee maker and grinder), you'll find bakeware for cakes, cupcakes, cookies or bread, an ice cream maker, panini press, and many other fun toys. For those who prefer to eat out on vacation, many options are available to the north in Cannon Beach or Seaside, or to the south in Manzanita or Wheeler. Your hosts would be happy to offer suggestions to suit your tastes and budgets.
The spacious master bedroom has a queen bed and ensuite bath. On the opposite side of the home are the other two bedrooms where you will find another queen bed and two twin beds, as well as the second newly renovated bath. Each bed has new mattresses, fresh linens, cozy blankets, and down comforters and pillows! Towels, hairdryers, and basic toiletry items are also provided.
The beaches in Arch Cape are much quieter than those in near-by towns and the views from the beach are spectacular! In the near distance there is Haystack Rock and the Seaside lighthouse. When the tides are low, you can walk to Hug Point State Park, one of the loveliest parks around. Just be careful you don't get stuck on the wrong side when the tides return!
If you visit during the dramatic stormy season, there is still lots to do! The home has a large selection of books, games, and puzzles. Or watch Cable TV, DVDs, or streaming Netflix with full surround sound. Just four miles to the north is Cannon Beach, with restaurants, art galleries and grocery shopping. A few miles further is Seaside for the aquarium, Fun Center Arcade, and many shops and activities to entertain all interests and ages. A few miles south is Oswald West State Park, an excellent hike down to Smuggler's Cove and the Devil's Cauldron, which is a popular surfing location. A short drive further is the Manzanita View Point, which stands six hundred feet above sea level and has some of best views on the Oregon Coast; this is a popular whale-watching spot during the migration seasons! For slightly longer day trips, Astoria is 40 minutes to the north and Tillamook is 40 minutes south.
Arch Cape Ocean Views is the perfect place for quiet relaxation, getting reacquainted with friends or family, creating amazing food, exploring the Oregon Coast, or all of the above! We hope you enjoy your visit!
