About the property

6-Bedroom Art-filled Home High Atop a Dune Overlooking the Ocean

At 4,500 square feet and three stories, our beach home offers numerous fun gathering spots and plenty of quiet nooks. When you enter the living room, you'll be awed by the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean, and the huge river-rock fireplace.

The front of our home, facing the ocean, has a flagstone terrace with Adirondack chairs, plus there’s a glass-protected dining deck with a professional Weber grill, and an ocean-view hot tub.

Please Note: We require a 7-night stay during the summertime (June 29-Sept. 2, 2018), and typically have guests check in on Fridays.

Our fully equipped kitchen is truly a joy to cook in, with a professional Viking range with 6 burners, 2 ovens and a griddle/grill, All-Clad cookware, baking ware, abundant serving ware and a large sub-zero refrigerator. Between the kitchen and the living room, a dining table (also with a view!) seats 10+.

Nearby, the art-filled Lounge is a great chill spot, with a high-end home theater system with a full-wall screen and a full bar, complete with refrigerator, ice-making machine, blenders and plenty of glassware. Plus, the entire house has a Sonos surround-sound system to get the party started. The hot tub deck is just off the Lounge, and beach towels are provided.

Our Master Suite, upstairs, is a private enclave that feels like a treehouse, with 280-degree views from the elevated king-size bed, which is surrounded by windows on three sides, placed so you can watch the surf from bed (and the stars at night). The en suite bath has an Asian aesthetic, with beautiful woodwork and raw-edge rock basins, and you won’t miss out on the view while showering in the two-person rock shower.

Four of our bedrooms are on the main floor. The Queen Suite (with a ½ bath) has a comfortable reading nook. The Junior King Suite has gorgeous ocean views, a king-size bed and a ¾ bath. The Queen Bedroom, just beyond, is a relaxing retreat. At the end of the hall, the Bunk Room is outfitted with 2 bunk beds, a TV and a Sony gaming system. There's even a "secret hideaway” in the hallway: a full-size futon in a loft accessible up a built-in ladder.

On the ground floor, our huge Games Room is outfitted with a mini bar, pool table, games table and seating area with a big-screen TV. Next door to it, our convertible Media Room/Conference Room is a super-comfortable gathering spot with a plush sectional and 75-inch plasma screen, surround-sound home theater and Xbox gaming system. And just steps away, the Library is a quiet getaway ideal for reading a book or working, with a sleeper couch and two computer work stations.

The Patio Suite, also on the ground floor, has a king-size bed and a private entrance, with French doors opening to a covered patio surrounded by lush foliage.

All our bedrooms are luxuriously appointed, with pillow-top mattresses and hotel-quality linens. There is also a sleep sofa and a crib. The home sleeps 14-15, and has 9 bathrooms and powder rooms.

Everything is provided for a comfortable stay, including high-speed Internet; a Nespresso coffee and espresso machine; towels and robes (in the suites); shampoo/conditioner; hairdryers; and a laundry room with two washers and dryers. We stock games and puzzles, as well as beach chairs and beach towels.

There is plentiful parking, with room for three cars in the driveway and three more on the street outside our home—plus, there is abundant parking along the street.

About Brian Heberling

I'm a designer/builder, and partner in a design firm. I build mostly high-end, environmentally green homes. My passions are the Seahawks, rock-and-roll and fine wines. I met my partner, Leslie, in college; we reconnected after 38 years. Leslie is a travel magazine editor and writer who is passionate about dancing and baking. We live in the Mid-Century Modern home that my grandfather built on Lake Sammamish, near Seattle, which I've turned into a spectacular showcase of a home, complete with gorgeous gardens and a stream; it's also a VRBO property.

Brian Heberling purchased this house in 2004

Why Brian Heberling chose Northern Coast

I fell in love with Manzanita on my first visit there in 2002, and bought a dated duplex that I completely transformed into our beloved beach home, making it into an airy, art-filled space. It's awesome for gatherings, and has been at the center of many a family celebration.

What makes this house unique

Oceanside living with the beach just outside the door; endless ocean views; play options galore, with two home theaters, a pool table, hot tub and great gathering spaces; fully equipped, high-end kitchen; and close proximity to Manzanita and nearby beaches and hiking trails.


Car: necessary

Walk for miles on the beach right from home, Fun Bicycling (three wheels) on the Beach, Hiking in the nearby State Parks which flank Manzanita - Oswald State Park and Nehalem Bay State Park, Kite Surfing, Golfing (nice nine-hole golf course one-half mile away), Kite Flying, Picnics/Camp Fires on the Beach, Antiquing in nearby Nehalem and Wheeler, visiting Nehalem Falls, driving through the Beautiful Nehalem River Valley, Just Plain Relaxing

The online views of this house do not do it justice!!

This group of persons from Everett , WA, have been traveling to the Oregon coast for a number of years, staying mostly in the Yachats area. We usually make this trip in the mid to late October time period for a long weekend (3 nights) for good food & some excellent wines.

This home surpassed all of our expectations!!!! Gorgeous home, excellent location, all beds extremely comfortable, kitchen appointments over the top. The best stay we’ve ever had!!!

Thank you for the opportunity. We will be back!

great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

well appointed home, everything you need (maybe some children's beach toys would be nice and inexpensive), gorgeous setting!! Manzanita is a wonderful small town and the beach is amazing. Hot tub was a big hit: plenty of towels, which is always nice. Can handle a pretty big group with different gathering needs. Kitchen had all desired equipment! Carmen was attentive and checked in with us several times, although we did not need anything. I hope to return!

Amazing house with stellar views

  • 5 of 5

We had our annual family vacation at this house and it was wonderful. The house has something for everyone and we could not have been happier. The view was amazing, the house was fantastic (game room, media room, hot tub, deck area and kitchen were huge hits) and Carmen, the concierge was the best. She was super friendly, very helpful and checked in on us to ensure we had all we need. We'd love to stay there again for another family vacation.

Beauty on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for our family reunion. There was plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms, large kitchen, hot tub, gathering rooms, and our favorite was the great room with it's fireplace and windows facing the ocean. We could all be together cooking, laughing, drinking coffee, and watching the beautiful beach and water. The staff (especially Carmen) was friendly and helpful and made sure all our questions were answered. The town of Manzanita had great shopping, restaurants, and Manzanita Fresh Foods, was a delight to shop for all our grocery needs. You can easily walk from the house to the main street for shopping. My favorite story was asking staff for better weather, because the week was already showing rain and cold for our entire stay. The day we arrived, the sun came out and stayed out for our entire stay. Now that's service!

Really enjoyed our time at the house!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fun reunion weekend at the house. There is plenty of space and we look forward to returning with our families! It was raining the entire time we were there, so we spent most of the time inside which didn't end up being a problem since the house provides lots of activities to do. When the sun did come out one morning, we took a walk on the beach which made us realize that this house could be perfect for a summer getaway.

We walked into the small town which is only a 2 minute walk, it's very close. Highly recommend the restaurant Blackbird which was fantastic!

We left a very small list of comments/suggestions for them which aren't too big of a deal. But the main issue was the internet was very unreliable which proved frustrating at times. Hoping that gets fixed because we hope to return!
