About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4) Max 6 night rental.

Located just south of Cannon Beach, OR, Far Cry is located down a secluded, wooded road and sits just above the beach with a full view of the Pacific Ocean. The north end of the beach is Cove Beach and at low tide a cave to Arch Cape is accessible. To the south is Falcon Cove named after Cape Falcon, a headland which rises 750' out into the Pacific Ocean. There is room for four in two separate bedrooms for a maximum of six(6) nights. There are hiking trails and lots of old movies and games, a big fireplace, comfy chairs in which to relax your cares away and of course 180 degrees of ocean right outside. The kitchen is stocked with spices and cooking utensils. Fresh linens await your arrival. Welcome to Far Cry.

'The Sea runs wild and beautiful in our blood, which probably explains why the far cry of the gull haunts us even beyond earshot. So our ocean home, forever beckoning, is named 'Far Cry.'

Why Carolyn Crawford chose Arch Cape

Buying Far Cry in 1985-86 on New year's Eve was a dream come true. The house was a true fixer. Over the years improvements were made, but the integrity of the 1953 original house was maintained. A strip of the original wall colors was left in the hall way just for fun. Far Cry is private without being too remote. The best part is the 180 degree view of the Pacific Ocean. I hope you enjoy my little piece of Heaven as much as I do.

Beautiful view and quiet location

  • 4 of 5

Great view and location especially for the price! 10 minutes from Manzanita and Cannon Beach. The home was very clean and cozy with wonderful movie and game selection. No wifi and no cell service, was a little difficult but learned to appreciate it. The beach was beautiful, some larger rock retaining to maneuver to get down to the beach which was a little difficult but a private piece of paradise. Overall loved this and would love to come back!

Great get away

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at Far Cry. It was perfect for my husband and two kids. It is a bit out dated but we didn't mind. We only would change the pull out sofa. It is so rusted and worn that you can't use it. We would gladly stay again though!!!

Mesmerizing and unobstructed ocean front view

  • 5 of 5

Me and my gf loved the amazing ocean view. And waking up to the view in the bedroom without leaving the bed was a wonderful experience. Cuddling up in front of the real wood burning fire place was wonderful. The best part was sitting outside on the lawn watching the sunset; made us wish time would stop right there. It was very soothing.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

We were enchanted with this charming house equipped with everything we could possibly need. It is perched on a bluff overlooking the beauty of the Oregon coast. Wow! It was a complete pleasure to be there, and we were blessed with beautiful weather! The experience was unforgettable!
