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 Manzanita
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.

Met all of our expectations.
We loved the beach. The view was spectacular. The house was as luxurious as advertised. The kitchen was very well equipped. We prepared several dinners without a hitch. Carmen, the concierge, was delightful. She was prompt, helpful and charming. The community, Manzanita, was perfect, not too touristy, but friendly and within walking distance. Everything worked in the house. It was spacious, many common areas for gathering. Comfortable beds, bathrooms everywhere. Steps to the sand, driftwood, waves, great weather. Can’t say enough good things about this place. We will be back, for sure.
Everything about this beautiful home was perfect for our group of 14 women!
We were lucky to have a warm sunny weekend in March to enjoy this beautiful home in Manzanita. It was perfect for our group of 14 women and our annual trip to the Oregon coast. We found the kitchen well-appointed, and spacious. The home has three dishwashers! And a convenient ice maker in the lounge! It was great to have a separate lounge kitchenette for all the beverages so that it did not take up space in the kitchen area. Carmen, the concierge, was a delight to work with and was quickly responsive to our requests. The home has a wonderful sound system throughout the common areas, with individual volume controls. Everyone felt like they could read a book in a quiet nook if they wanted to, or gather in the main room for group activities. The hot tub was great! The location of this home is perfect for walks on the beach or a short walk into downtown Manzanita. Several of us made Spa appointments, and we also had a catered dinner by local chef Julie Barker... Highly recommended! Our thanks to the owners of this beautiful home and to Carmen, for making it a memorable weekend for all of us!
Magical time in Manzanita
Our family of 16 visited this property for New Years and had the best time ever! This house has everything for all ages. During the day the view of the ocean from the living room and the amazing beach access kept us occupied, while in the evenings the adults enjoyed the bar off the family room, while the kids enjoyed video games and pool in the basement. This house is also a stone's throw from town, so we were able to shop, get coffee and visit the winery several times during our stay! Carmen, the concierge, was awesome and very helpful. We even ran into her at the local market in town :) We would definitely recommend this property and can't wait to visit again!
Beautiful property right on the gorgeous beach!
Wonderful house furnished with everything you would ever need. Carmen, the concierge, is super welcoming and helpful. We stayed there for our annual "girls trip" to the Oregon Coast--there were 5 adults but the house would easily accommodate many more. I've stayed at many houses in the Cannon Beach area over the past 30 years and no other home comes even close to being as lovely as this one. Can't wait to come back--hopefully next year!!!
As always a wonderful stay!
We have used this house multiple times in the past for a corporate retreat, and with the new renovations it works even better than before, though I didn't think that was possible! Carmen (the uber wonderful concierge) is so attentive and knows where every single thing you might need is located if you should have a challenge finding anything. It was immaculate, of course, and worked perfectly for our needs. We include walks on the beach in our daily agenda and having it so close by makes it easy to do in a limited time frame throughout the day. There is even an easy way to rinse off the sand (near the hot tub) with beach towels nearby (in the lower cabinets of the Lounge Bar) -- all so thoughtful! That's the word for this house: THOUGHTFUL -- they have thought of everything you could need and made it feel like you are coming home! Thanks Brian for making the house better and better each year!
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!
