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 getaway to enjoy all that Cannon Beach has to offer

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, clean and plenty of space for our family of five. Location was excellent - just a couple of blocks from the beach, a few blocks to somegood restaurants or a short walk/drive into the main downtown area. With three kids under 7, we were thrilled that the house was set up for kids of all ages and had plenty of toys and games to keep them all busy during downtime between activities or while we were making meals. Lisa was super easy to coordinate with and extremely responsive. Would definitely recommend this property and we'll be back for our next trip to Cannon Beach!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, our two young children, and a set of grandparents stayed in this wonderful home for four nights and were extremely happy with our choice. First, the location is ideal, 2 blocks from the beach, 5 minute walk from the downtown shops, 3 minute walk the other direction to several nice restaurants and coffee shops, and it's on a very peaceful quite street. Second, the home has a wonderful airy and spacious great room and kitchen which is perfect for a group to hang out and enjoy each other's company. Finally, the owner was extremely responsive and accommodating. We plan to come back next year!

As described...only better!

  • 5 of 5

Blue Ocean is exactly as described...only better!

We spent the week with my son, daughter-in-law, and 6 year old granddaughter. A small house yet with LOTS of room in a very quiet neighborhood and within VERY EASY walking distance to the beach and “Haystack” (use the Internet to find out when Low Tide occurs), a wonderful little coffee shop and the shops and restaurants of the town.

With the large living room and 3 well spaced bedrooms, we never felt crowded.

Being there in late October, the evenings got a little chilly outside but the living room’s remote controlled gas fireplace kept us very comfortable on the inside. Whether it was the TV or one of the many board games there for our use, there was always something available to do after dinner. There were even books and games for our 6 year old granddaughter to enjoy.

The kitchen had more than an ample supply of glasses, dishes, and silverware as well as a variety of most every appliance, kitchen tool, and cookware that we needed. On those nights that we didn't go to one of the wonderful nearby restaurants, whether the at home food prep was for the grill on the deck or for the kitchen's gas range, there was more than enough space for the night’s cook and his or her sous chefs to work without stepping on one another.

Bottom line, a BIG thumbs up to Blue Ocean and to its very approachable and helpful owner Lisa!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, and for choosing our house. I am glad your stay was a good one - Cannon Beach usually has terrific weather in October. We are really missing our Sleepy Monk coffee...we will have to block out a weekend for our own use soon. See you next time! Lisa

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We just concluded a two week stay at the Blue Ocean. This little house is nestled in one of the sweetest and quietest neighborhoods in Cannon Beach! We loved the easy access to the beach, to town and to coffee shops! My grandson loved the puzzles and games left for sharing. They were perfect for him! We spent each night on the deck enjoying happy hour and dinner or just sitting reading quietly. We look forward to next year!

Our house is less than a 10 minute walk to any Cannon Beach attraction. It is 1 block 'plus 2 houses' to the beach. It is 3-6 blocks from fabulous restaurants, 4 blocks to glassblowing workshop, and about 6 blocks or so to Haystack Rock's amazing tide pools.

Park your car, hop on your bike, or just walk and you can go just about anywhere in Cannon Beach from here.
