PICTURE PERFECT BEACH HOUSE! Located in the classic beachfront community of Kiwanda Shores, in Pacific City, Oregon, where everything is just a flip-flop away!

Beautiful easy path to the beach which is just a few houses away. Great cul-de-sac makes it a nice place for kids to bike. Deer are a common site. Gated but casual beach neighborhood. Great network of biking and walking trails. Short walk to everywhere! The Pacific Ocean and white sandy beach are just to your West! A short walk to the East is the Nestucca River and a cute little beach town! Walk North and hit the Pelican Brew Pub, Cape Kiwanda which is a magnificent huge oceanside sand dune offering a great hike (and view), tidepools at the base, and great surfing! South is the beauty of Bob Straub State Park consisting of endless unspoiled beach!

Games, books, movies.

Great Room / Kitchen.

2 TV's, incl 1 TV with DVD. Basic Charter cable package.

About Marc and Jenniffer

We savor our time in Pacific City... it is such a special place.

Marc and Jenniffer purchased this house in 2004

Why Marc and Jenniffer chose Pacific City

We purchased our home in 2004 so our kids would be able to experience the beauty of the beach and surfing... and particularly the beauty of this spot, since it's such a classic beach town.

What makes this house unique

Pacific City is a great place to unwind!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly what we were looking for, only better. The setting amongst the low-growing pines, sea grass, set back from the street, made it feel like our own personal hideaway. Everything was pristinely clean, simple, thoughtful. The path to the beach was perfect, and the beach spectacular. We usually choose oceanfront, but this was even better. So grateful.

Great location. Perfect size. Just what we were hoping for.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well-kept, well appointed property in a nice community. We were able to walk easily to the beach and both towns. There are plenty of great shops and restaurants and activities. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. Great surfing, crabbing, swimming, hiking, biking. Something for everyone.

Great location, walk to everything

  • 5 of 5

Great place that was comfortable and had very good ambiance. Loved being able to walk 5 minutes to town or five minutes to the beach. The main room had a nice open floor plan and we took advantage of the puzzles. We completed 4 of the puzzles, anyone want to challenge that record?

We saw deer and rabbits walking through the property. Perfect setting for a small group. The beach near the property is much quieter than near town, but has perfect view of the haystack rock.

The owners had signs throughout the house that explained rules, how to check out, etc. They responded quickly through e-mail and I would recommend using them.

Bright, lovely home in great location

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed here with my boyfriend and our two dogs. I loved how bright and airy the house was, with comfortable seating in the living room and open floor plan. The path to the beach made for a great dog walk and of course we absolutely loved the beach!

We had a lovely time. The walk to the beach through the wetlands was beautiful and any issues we had were resolved by the owners.
