Welcome to Shorty's Hideaway ocean front home. Just steps through the sand and dune grass to miles of pristine sandy beach. Walk south to Bob Straub Park and keep going to where the Nestucca River meets the ocean or head north towards the picturesque Cape Kiwanda and Haystack Rock. There is so much to explore along Pacific City's beautiful coastline including beach combing, whale watching and horseback riding. Bring your kayak to launch into the Nestucca River or rent one locally. This 1950's beach house has been in the same family for all these years. They have upgraded it constantly, but still have the knotty pine panels and wood fireplace. The open floor plan is perfect for family and friends to gather and share beach experiences or find one of the stored games for a little friendly competition. There is plenty of room for kids to spread out and within view while preparing meals in the fully stocked kitchen. The comfortable living room has a smart TV with a DVD player or just hang out and watch the surf through the living and dining room picture windows. Stay warm and dry snuggled in a cozy throw and observe the dramatic winter weather. There is a master bedroom with an ocean view and a roomy master bath. There is also a guest room and guest bath located on the other side of the living room and no stairs required because all spaces are at street level. BBQ out on the east patio out of the westerly winds or set in the sun and enjoy that novel you've been meaning to get to.
Sit on the dune behind the house and watch your kids and pets play on the beach, while the sun goes down for that spectacular sunset. Play a little, dream a little while time stands still. Reserve today and find out for yourself why nothing comes close to staying ocean front.

Shorty's is the Hidden Gem
We have been frequent visitors to the Oregon Coast for many years. Pacific City is a marvelous get-away, offering miles of quiet beach and access to many activities. Shorty's is impeccably well-maintained and perfectly situated right on the beach. We open the door and watch our border collies disappear over the dunes. Did I mention the perfect night's sleep on the memory foam mattress listening to the surf? You can't go wrong with this spot!
Mary and Brian McDonald
Lovely, ocean views and small town feel.
Perfect for our our small family and old dog. Everything was clean and inviting. The puzzle cache came in handy on our rainy day. The beach was just out the back door and we enjoyed the kites as well as a private beach feel!. Highly enjoyable time.
Awesome Beach Home
Awesome beach house just seconds from the Pacific Ocean! House was very comfortable and conveniently located less than 5 minutes from food and shopping in Pacific City! We loved our long weekend at Shorty’s!
Wonderful beach house!
The house is in the most perfect spot! Super easy access to the beach and close to restaurants and the little grocery store. Ellen was really easy to communicate with. The house was incredibly clean, well stocked and comfortable. Can’t wait to go back!
Great property and close to the beach.
Don’t forget wood for the fireplace. It is not provided. (Though should be). We had a wonderful stay.
Cozy, warm, and right on the beach!
We loved Shorty’s! The layout is great-cozy but open. The bedrooms are nice, and great master bathroom! The kitchen has everything you need. We’ll keep this one on our list!
