Peaceful Family Vacation Home In Cannon Beach, Easy Beach Access

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

3 Br, 2 Ba, Sleeps 8 Great Family House, Minutes From The Beach

Blue Ocean is a lovely 3 BR, 2 Bath beach house on quiet street in the center of beautiful Cannon Beach, Oregon. This single level home is secreted away on a quiet street just between Cannon Beach’s Midtown and Downtown areas.

Blue Ocean offers guests low-key relaxation in a clean, calm environment with lots of light. Located close to the beach, as well as downtown and mid-town restaurants and galleries.

The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils, and a few spices. Both bathrooms and kitchen are recently renovated, and the house has bath towels, beach towels, portable crib and pack and play. There are some toys, games and puzzles available as well.

We love everything about our neighborhood. A super easy bus ride from Portland will drop you off a few blocks from our house! We are one block (plus 2 houses) from the beach, and a short walk to both Haystack Rock and downtown. Nearby places include delicious restaurants, coffee shops and art galleries. You can rent beach bikes 3 blocks away, or walk into town and enjoy the playground. A short drive takes to to surfing beaches, and Ecola Park offers terrific hiking opportunities.

We have full time - or mostly full time - residents nearby. We are respecting their request that we do not allow dogs on the property. So, as sad as we are to say 'no dogs allowed', please consider our house if you like dog free houses.

7 night minimum in summer, and nightly rates range from $178 in winter to $297 in summer. Includes taxes. Cleaning fee extra.

About Lisa Taaffe

We are a family of three living in Portland. We moved here from Houston in 2005 and fell in love with Cannon Beach. We love visiting the coast and just reading and relaxing and playing in the sand. When not in Cannon Beach, we are skiers and enjoy lots of traveling.

Why Lisa Taaffe chose Northern Coast

Our house is primarily a family vacation home, in a quiet neighborhood, with simply amazing neighbors. We love just parking our car, riding our bikes or walking everywhere. The house is an uncluttered, peaceful place to visit. We love traveling all over the world, but we also love driving over to CB for the weekend to play, eat and read.

What makes this house unique

We chose this house because of its proximity to town and the beach. We love the house in part because it is such a friendly neighborhood. Everyone helps each other out, and we make a pilgrimage every 4th of July to participate in the Jackson Street Chair Brigade - a very silly part of the annual 4th of July parade. You can't live on our street and not be coaxed into a part of the parade.

Great family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and spacious home. Kitchen is well stocked making it easy to prepare family dinners. We enjoyed several meals out on the deck and it didn't hurt that the weather was perfect. Bathrooms had been nicely updated and beds were clean and comfy. Easy walk to the beach and to both ends of town. Thanks for letting us enjoy your place. Hope to visit again!

Relaxing week in Cannon Beach

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 teens and had everything we needed. Very clean, beds were very comfortable, kitchen was well supplied, location was central to the beach and town, and close to prime hiking. Good Wi-Fi reception, well stocked with lots of games and puzzles for non-electronic fun. We took the recommendation of the Cannon Beach cafe and it was really yummy, just make sure you have a reservation. And we found out why the Pelican Brewery did not make the recommended list--long wait, pricey for what you got, so-so food. Overall, would book again.

Perfect week with family

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect week in Cannon Beach staying at this property. House is bright and cheerful, and the location is fantastic. We had 4 children and 3 adults and the house was a perfect size for us. We cooked lots of great meals in the kitchen - it has a great layout and was well appointed. Even a griddle for pancakes! A lovely touch was a little welcome basket with some treats for kids and grown-ups alike. We will definitely be back!

The little things. Nice and clean

  • 3 of 5

So the home was very nice. Clean and we'll maintain. We unfortunately had one of the hottest weekends​ the home got very hot. There was only one working ceiling fan. There was a little fan in one of the closet. A backup for an event like the hot weather would have been nice. Having two large floor fans would have helped tremendously. The owner is very responsive and nice and acomindating to her ability. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was bc of the non working ceiling fan which controlled all the "AC" in the home. I had a chance to take a long bath with the little spa treats left in the bathroom. My child also had more than enough kid toys. We also tried to use the printer that was in the office. That did not work. My husband is in IT and didn't feel like messing with it bc of the amount of time it would have taken to fix it. We wanted to print our boarding passes. Overall it needed alittle work on some of the function of the home. I'm sure these things were over looked bc not everyone uses the printer or fans, but in our case they were a necessity and they failed.

Owner's Response: Hi Lauren, Oh so sorry about the ceiling fan! I read your message to me asking about air conditioning and never noticed the part about the ceiling fan not working! Usually, I would call the property manager over to check remotes and loan you some big fans. I just missed that whole thing! It turns out that the problem was just the remote control batteries that needed to be replaced. Which I see you tried! We have now programmed the remote so one remote will operate both fans. I think I will order a new remote too just to be safe. The back-up fans were a great suggestion, and it may be time to replace that printer as well. Thanks for the visit, and hopefully you can give us a try again when we aren't having a heat wave! Best, Lisa
