Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8 (6 adults)

Okay, so you and your family or associates are looking for a place on the Coast for that reunion or meeting. You're looking for someplace quiet and private, away from the throngs milling about with their taffy and trinkets. Look no more! This modern 3-bedroom home (2 bedrooms in the main house plus a private, 1 bedroom studio with a separate entrance) is waiting for you. Located on Arch Cape - an unsullied sliver of Oregon Coast just minutes from Cannon Beach and Manzanita - it's dodged the bullet of developers and offers stupendous views from its perch on an escarpment overlooking the Pacific, including (in season) views of migrating whales!

The ocean is visible from just about every corner of Bear's Head. Feel the Pacific breezes as you sip a drink out on the wraparound deck, nestled in the Adirondack chairs. Or, watch the ocean from the comfort of the plush leather furniture through the wall of windows lining the home's exterior. It's a spacious, comfortable living space with edgy decor and enough room for 8 people to stretch out and unwind. And when that storm looms on the horizon, settle in with a movie on the DVD player or VCR. There's also cable TV and free WIFI, so bring along the laptop.

Unless your itinerary includes numerous trips to restaurants in nearby Cannon Beach and Manzanita, plan your meals and bring supplies; Arch Cape has one restaurant. Bear's Head has a full kitchen, beautifully appointed with modern appliances including a dishwasher and microwave. There's extra room for storing those cold things in the pantry through the swinging doors where you'll find a large refrigerator/freezer. (The washer and dryer are in here as well.) Enjoy an ocean view with your meals at the table with room for 6. There's room for 4 more on the padded stools at the marble, wraparound counter. On those days when the sun smiles on the Oregon Coast, fire up the gas grill on the deck and gather 'round the umbrella covered patio furniture for a barbeque.

Combining the 2 bedrooms in the main house with the potential for 3 in the attached studio (available separately!) gets you six people bedded down comfortably (eight maximum). The master bedroom comes with a queen bed, amazing ocean views, and a decor that might challenge the classically prone art lover. The other bedroom has a full bed, equally fun art, and easy access to hall bath with tub and shower. The studio - with its own private entrance and a kitchenette - has 1 bedroom and a comfortable futon with a memory foam mattress. Don't forget your pet dogs! They're welcome for a small nightly fee.

Enveloped by Oswald West State Park and flanked on the north by Hug Point State Park, Arch Cape - and this home - enjoy a privacy and tranquility you won't find in many of Oregon's Coastal cities. Right outside your door and up the hill is the Pacific Crest Trail, the very popular and very long avenue for hikers that runs from British Columbia to Mexico (2,663 miles!). A much less ambitious yet still rewarding hike awaits you in nearby Oswald West State Park where you can take a number of short hikes to Cape Falcon Overlook with its awe-inspiring view of the Pacific! There's also a beach that's popular with boogie boarders and places to picnic. Anglers: Head south about 7 miles to nearby Nehalem where you can try your luck in Nehalem River or arrange a trip out to deeper waters. There's also a great winery in Nehalem with a tasting room where you can sample the local vintages. And, if its trinkets and taffy you want, then Cannon Beach and Manzanita with their shops and restaurants await you!

For some peace and quiet, a great view, and a comfortable and fun place to stay on the Oregon Coast, reserve this lovely home in tranquil and picturesque Arch Cape.

About Vacasa, OR - Oregon Coast Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

They didn't even mention the best part....

  • 5 of 5

Of all the great things mentioned in the listing, they fail to mention how secluded the beach is. It's the best part. There is a set of stairs at the south end of the street that lead to the beach. There was never more than 20 people in sight amd we were there peak season.

The house was great, the views were great, and the weather was great.

We cooked dinner 4 nights for 12 people. The large grill only works on one side, however we used the one from the other end of the patio and it worked great.

Big thanks to the owners for allowing us to share your wonderful home. We tried to leave it better than we found it.

We will definitely be staying here again!

Owner's Response: The maximum occupancy for this home is 8. Therefore, as per the owner's request, no guest renting the home can exceed that limit, and there is no camping in the backyard. We always want our guests to share in staying at our beautiful homes, but they must comply with Vacasa policies. Thank you.

Ocean view getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you love the sound and view of the ocean waves this is the place for you. We were five siblings and a spouse having a mini reunion after my daughter's wedding and it was a perfect ending to a perfect event.

Ocean view

  • 4 of 5

Loved the open living area with a beautiful view of the ocean. The artist/owner's paintings added to the playful decor. Small beachfront but conveniently located nearby public beaches such as Oswald Park and Hug Point.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We love Bear's Head and have returned five times. Unmatched views, beach access and amenities. Listen to the ocean as you fall asleep, make a campfire in the backyard, or just hang out on the lawn overlooking the ocean all day like we did. Lots of great activities in the area--hiking, Kelly's for fresh crab, cute shops and dining in Manzanita and Cannon Beach.
