About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths 1950 Sq Ft Home, 2 Masters, and Lots of Sunshine!

Whether you're drinking coffee or sipping on wine, relax and take in the beauty of the beach from the cozy lookout or the spacious decks. It's about a half mile from the beach and is protected from the winds of the ocean. You'll enjoy being outside on the deck as the panoramic views and relaxing ocean sounds remind you to leave your worries for a while. Bring a touch of camping to your vacation by using the firepit on the property for gathering around the campfire to roast marshmallows and make s'mores!

Manzanita is a peaceful, quaint beach town on the beautiful Oregon coast. Located about an hour and a half drive from Portland, Oregon, it’s a wonderful place to enjoy hiking, biking, beachcombing, golfing, kayaking and just about anything else you enjoy about the great outdoors! There are wonderful shops and restaurants in Manzanita as well as in Cannon Beach, which is 15 minutes north.

An added bonus...Manzanita has a unique weather pattern that we call the 'Neah-Kah-Nie Effect'. When the forecast calls for clouds or fog, the clouds seem to stop at Neah-Kah-Nie Mountain to the north of us and at Nehalem Bay to the south and we sit in the beautiful clear skies! Oddly enough, this happens more often than not!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed over the Thanksgiving Holiday and had a great time! We really enjoyed the home and the amenities offered. The home was well stocked on the essentials and felt the communication was great from the owners. Would defiantly consider staying again in the future!

Restful & relaxing! Spacious accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house, as it was clean and casual, but with enough BRs and Baths for our family! The kitchen was great and everything worked. Manzanita, the town, is "just right" for us, and we loved how uncrowded the beach there is! We would rent here again.

Lovely home, great layout for larger groups.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time!! The house is conveniently located with easy access to various restaurants and grocery stores. It's also near the highways for trips to the surrounding towns. The home is well equipped and in great shape. We had one couple/small child who were early risers compared to the rest of the group - the bedroom/bath off the upstairs bedroom was very helpful - it let us be up early with access to the kitchen without waking up the rest of the group. Highly recommend this home!!

Relaxing & Fun Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at this house over spring break. As others have stated, you really feel at home immediately. The house is stocked with everything you might need and the owner is so gracious and generous (we were greeted with a nice note and a basket full of goodies). Everything was clean and the beds were really comfortable. We enjoyed quiet time reading and looking at the view from the "crow's nest". The kids learned to play pool here and will probably always remember it. The fire pit was wonderful on a lovely evening. All in all this is a great house for all types of Oregon coast weather.....we sat in the sun and enjoyed drinks on the deck when it was warm and we cozied up by the fire when it was cold and rainy.

Lovely Manzanita rental home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is located in a quiet neighborhood that is a respite from the crowds in Manzanita or the beach. It has so many wonderful amenities (very large deck, firepit, lookout loft within the house, large fully equipped kitchen, stereo setup to connect your iPhone or iPod, and COMFY beds) and the owner was very gracious and accommodating to answering my questions before the trip. I LOVED my 9 day stay in this beautiful home and will definitely plan to go back.

Upon entering this house we immediately felt at home. The house was fully equipped with anything you might possibly need. The washer/dryer and boot dryer were especially wonderful, since we had a few rainy and muddy days. The kitchen was equipped for cooking anything you'd like, we personally bought groceries on the way in from Portland at a Fred Meyer. Karen was easily and quickly accessible for our questions and needs. The only thing that I might say was a little annoying was the internet, it was just incredibly slow, however we saw it as a plus since we were able to disconnect from the outside world a little better :)

We especially enjoyed having our coffee in the morning and watching the storms come in, the fog roll out, and the swallows fly all over the neighborhood. The community was beautiful and gated, very safe. I especially recommend eating at the Big Wave restaurant which was down the street, amazing fresh food!

They also had beach chairs and tons of towels for the beach. The only reason I wanted to go home was because I missed my doggies :( I would definitely recommend staying here, however if you have anyone who has trouble with stairs I would not recommend it since the kitchen/family room/pool table are all on the second floor.

Hope to come back soon!

Car: recommended

We are located near Nehalem Bay State Park which has a boat ramp for fishing and crabbing; miles of hiking and biking trails and lots of wildlife viewing. Our gated neighborhood has it's own basketball and tennis courts.

Manzanita, Oregon is a quiet, peaceful beach town located in Tillamook County on the Northern Oregon Coast.

Neah-Kah-Nie Mountain comes right down into the sea on the north end of Manzanita, bisecting the beach - with Manzanita Beach on its south side and Short Sands Beach on the north. A trail up the mountain leads to a breathtaking panoramic view of the Northern Oregon Coast and the Pacific Ocean. Manzanita is sandwiched between two beautiful state parks - Oswald West to the north and Nehalem Bay State Park on the south..

Manzanita cozies up to Manzanita Beach, which stretches for seven miles between Neahkahnie Mountain and the Nehalem Jetty where Nehalem Bay and Nehalem River meet the Pacific Ocean. If you feel up for a good walk, head south on Manzanita Beach and walk to the jetty which is usually covered with seals lounging on the rocks or fishing in the water, along with heron and egrets standing on one foot in the surf.
