Why Brian Heberling chose Manzanita
Brian: 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. Leslie: Our Manzanita home is awesome for gatherings--we've had many family reunions, girlfriend getaways and celebrations of all sorts at our beach house. Both of us are thrilled to know that this home that we love so much is at the center of so many of our guests' most precious memories!
What makes this House unique
This is oceanside living at its best, with the beach just outside the door. Our home has endless ocean views (with the top view from our peak-of-the-house master suite) and play options galore, with a home theater, pool table, hot tub and great gathering spaces. It's easy to make feasts in our fully equipped, high-end kitchen. And our home is only 5 minutes' walk from all the charms of Manzanita. We're also minutes from yet more beaches, hiking trails, a horseback riding facility, fisheries where you can buy fresh crab, and kayak and boat rentals.

Our perfect spot!
This lovely home on the beach was set in front of other homes so you felt alone on the beach. The house fit our large family from babies to grandparents. The views were breathtaking. Kitchen was well stocked.
Our family looked forward to this Oregon vacation for sooo long and it was everything we hoped for! The home was perfect and the ocean view absolutely breathtaking. What a wonderful gathering place- great kitchen, comfortable beds and plenty of bathrooms! Thank you for the access to such a beautiful home and generous hospitality to go along with it.
Thanks for your lovely review! We're thrilled that you and your family had such a great time at our Manzanita home. We work hard to make sure our guests really feel like they're on vacation, with anything they might possibly need. And of course, we're so fortunate to be right on the beach. We hope to welcome you back at a future date!
Great family time
This house is perfect in every way. Amenities, location, cleanliness, and the owner is delightful to work with. My family had an amazing time.
We’ve been staying at this house once a year for many years now. The house itself is beautiful and spacious. It’s always immaculate when we arrive and the local contact is always available to help with any questions. We hope to continue to stay there for many more years.
Beautiful Location. Good for groups.
We greatly enjoyed our stay in Manzanita. The property is beautiful. Excellent views, quirky chic decor in the property, and plenty of room to spread out. The ocean views from the living room and several rooms are outstanding. Everything was in good repair and we felt well-taken care of by the local property manager who was there to greet us and show us around the house. We did a lot of cooking and found the kitchen excellently appointed for the task. The town itself is a little sleepy, but very cute. Local grocery store was amazingly well-stocked, and don't miss Pete and Sister's Pie shop. (Excellent home-made pies.) All in all, it was a great early spring get-away.
Amazing place, great amenities and setup, kitchen was stocked well, best location on beach, easy walk to everything in Manzanita, will be back for sure, thanks!
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at our beach house! I enjoy cooking, so I've outfitted the kitchen with anything anyone might possibly need or want to put out lovely meals.
It's great to hear our location worked well for you--we're so lucky to be on the beach and so close to downtown. We hope to see you back next year!
