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 an updated 3 BR, 2 Bath beach house on quiet street in the center of beautiful Cannon Beach, Oregon. Blue Ocean offers guests low-key relaxation in a clean, calm environment with lots of light. This single-level home is 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.

Lisa Taaffe purchased this house in 2006

Why Lisa Taaffe chose Cannon Beach

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.

Perfect Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect - just a two minute walk to the beach, and a 5 minute walk in either direction to restaurants, shops, etc. Lisa is extremely responsive, and the check-in/out process was the easiest, most clear, we have had renting on VRBO. The house was set up well for our young kids, crib and all. It was also clean, open, and had everything you could need in the kitchen Just a really good experience, and can't wait to stay here again on our next Cannon Beach vacation.

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!

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.
