About David Miller

We love spending time here with our 3 kids, surfing, exploring the beach, riding bikes, playing ping-pong, building bonfires and just taking a break from our regular busy routine.

We make this house available to our friends, and want all our guests to feel just as welcome and valued.

David Miller purchased this house in 2010

Why David Miller chose Northern Coast

We've been visiting Manzanita for 20 years, and during that time rented homes in all areas of the town. We finally purchased our beach home in 2010 because it was the perfect combination for a vacationing family.

The miles-long stretch of beach out front is beautiful for walking and sand castle-building, and golf and shopping are just a few minutes away down the dedicated bike path to town.

Our street is very (very) quiet and we have wonderful neighbors.

The state park is 2 blocks south, with miles of walking and biking trails along the Nehalem River.

The house has a double garage with a ping-pong table, so guests have plenty to keep themselves busy.

What makes this house unique

The sand begins at the end of our dead-end street. It's 132 steps from our front door (as measured repeatedly by our 3 kids). The coffee & donut shop is our favorite place to walk in the morning. Other great food spots include Mudd Dog (in the summer), the San Dune Tavern, Bread & Ocean bakery, and Marzano's Pizza. There are also 2 grocery stores right in town if you'd rather stock up the kitchen and stay home. Oh, and our kids' favorite place is the vintage candy shop.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Outside of town so its quiet, very close to the dunes and the state park. Can walk to golf course. House is in good shape with good strong hot water and a modern large kitchen. Couches are a bit old but beds were all comfortable. Can sleep 6 adults comfortably. Has a pack and play in closet for babies. There is a stairway gate too but it was broken. Stairway is steep and oddly angled--not toddler or elderly friendly unfortunately. We had a great time and owner was easy to contact. Definitely would stay again.

Perfect Beach Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

What a great week of relaxation, sunshine, beach fun, great food, and family time! The pictures, description, and information provided about the house and surroundings were spot on. It was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. We definitely enjoyed several of the restaurants suggested by the owner; great dinner at the Blackbird, hamburgers at the Wave, and pizza at Marzano's all in Manzanita. We spent the better part of morning walking in the quaint town of Manzanita, browsing in the shops, trying the handmade sweets at Manzanita Sweets, eventally making our way to lunch at The Wave. We had started off thinking we'd enjoy a burger at the Sand Dune Pub but were surprised it's not for families with kids, no minors. They were very gracious in recommending The Wave and the burgers did not disappoint. In Cannon Beach, we enjoyed dinner at the Irish Table and don't miss the amazing coffee at the Sleepy Monk Coffee Roasters. We ate plenty of meals at the house with it's fully equipped kitchen (including a tea pot which I used daily). We shopped at both Fresh Foods and The Little Apple in Manzanita, easily finding everything we needed for both gourmet and basic meals. Manzanita Golf Course was also great fun. Its nine holes provided some challenges and also great for beginners. Very reasonable greens fees. Our kids raved about the surfing, thanks to the wetsuits and boards from Cleanline Surf in Cannon Beach. Tom, at Cleanline Surf, recommended a great location for beginners to surf, Short Sands Beach, close by. Parents and children alike loved the bonfire on the beach. Clams in foil over the coals were a huge hit before roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. Our kids were begging to stay longer and we will definitely return again! Thanks for sharing a little bit of your beach heaven!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your adventure at Manzanita. Tom at Cleanline is a great guy, a bearded legend of local surfing and expert maker of dreams-come-true in the skate shop. Clams in foil? Yeah, we're gonna' try that. Be well!

Clean, well managed, helpful owners

  • 4 of 5

House was nice, clean, fun little nooks for the kiddos to explore. Having the grill to use was great. Owners were very responsive to questions or needs. Only thing that I felt could have been better were the kitchen pots/pans need upgrading. Non stick is flaking, could have used a few more larger pans and pots, but we are cookers.

Owner's Response: Good news. We've done a "pots and pans" transplant. All is good now. Be well!

WOW! This house and owner are amazing! The house is just steps to the ocean, the house has SO much room to sleep, the kitchen is perfect, the walk to town is fun and very easy. The ping pong table was so much fun and we loved our stay! We had 4 adults and 4 children ranging from 2 1/2 - 6 years old. The owner was SO easy to work with, so kind, was quick to respond to emails and calls. The house was PACKED with fun games, blankets, towels, plenty of seating, and toys for the beach. If you go when it is really hot, I might suggest bringing a little fan for the bedrooms, but other than that, it was PERFECT!!! We can not wait to go back next year!!!!

Exceptional beachside home

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough nice things about the owners of this property. Very lovely people to work with and beyond helpful as we tried to navigate plans from home in Vancouver to see the American west coast. The house is fantastic. Newly updated. Fully stocked, superb condition on our arrival, with spotless bathrooms, kitchen and generous bedrooms. Not a cramped funky beach house. A great place to just "chill out." The town is quiet even on the busiest days and between this house and the town, there's every amenity you'll need. Will be back for sure. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Hope your trip to the coast was a success. We appreciate the note and welcome you back anytime. I see there were new Ping Pong balls after your stay, so I trust the kids (or you) discovered their inner champion. :) Have a good summer.,

The instant stress cure...

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a 6-night stay here with my husband, two school-age daughters and mid-60s father, and this house was absolutely ideal for our Manzanita stay. The house is just a short walk to the beach: load up with the provided towels and boogie boards/skim boards and chairs and go have fun! Then head back later for some restful showers and plenty of room to relax in front of the wood stove with a good book or a board game (loads on hand), or upstairs with the Wii. (Our girls especially loved hanging out in the secret room... what a treat for kids!) The kitchen is well equipped and the house immaculate, and loads of extra blankets for curling up on cool, wind-whipped evenings (though my husband and I liked leaving the bedroom window open to fall asleep to the sound of the surf). The town proper is within easy walking/cycling distance, and within a short drive are plenty of other scenic beach towns, as well as some fun horseback riding along the beach just a few minutes south at Nehalem Bay State Park. As an owner, Dave is infinitely easy to work with and has lots of great tips for the stay and the area, and is quick to respond to any query. This was also the easiest VRBO checkout we've ever had! A beautiful house and vacation, and we can't wait to return.
