About the property

3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathrooms, 1 1/2 blocks to beach

Enjoy our ocean view home in beautiful Manzanita on the North Oregon Coast. Our comfortable home is perfect for a small family, three couples, a ladies' weekend or a romantic weekend for two. Our home is one and a half blocks from the ocean with direct beach access where you can stroll the magnificent, seven mile beach. We also have a view of Neahkahnie Mountain looking north. Just walk across the street to tee off on picturesque Manzanita Golf Course, or bike to Nehalem State Park on one of our two bikes. Tennis, volleyball and playground are just a few blocks away at the City Park.

Our kitchen/great room with vaulted ceiling, skylight and river rock fireplace is on the upper level looking out to the ocean. The great room is surrounded by full length windows for amazing views. Relax on our large deck off the great room with a good book while enjoying a grand ocean view. The master bedroom (queen bed) with a large walk-in closet has a private deck and full bath with skylight. Our additional guest bath is also on upper level. The lower level has two bedrooms (one with queen bed, one with twin beds), full bath, and utility room.

We are ten blocks to the main street of Manzanita where you will find wonderful restaurants, delightful gift and antique shops, wine bar, book store, 2 grocery stores, coffee shops, and bakery. Excellent crabbing in Nehalem Bay is just three miles away and you are welcome to take our crab pot with you. Sorry, we do not allow pets or smoking.

We have Wi-Fi, a flat screen/cable TV, DVD player and a large selection of CDs as well as games, puzzles and beach toys, beach chairs and umbrella, port-a-crib and high chair.

About Carol Hardwick

My husband and I are recently retired and loving life and our grandchildren!

Carol Hardwick purchased this house in 1998

Why Carol Hardwick chose Manzanita

We were fortunate to find this beautiful view lot in 1997 and Hinkhouse Homes built us a wonderful house maximizing the view. Our family had always enjoyed the coast and we couldn't be happier with the house, the views, the location and charming Manzanita.

What makes this house unique

A wonderful panoramic view of the Pacific and only a short, flat walk to the ocean. Watch the athletic kite and sail boarders ride the Manzanita surf and enjoy the magnificent sunsets from our deck or living room with floor to ceiling windows.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Carol and Bill, Thank you for sharing your lovely beach house with us. Everything was so homey and comfortable and your coastal décor makes this so much more than the usual vacation rental. We treated everything as lovingly as we would our own home. Even your flowers got some TLC.

I'd recommend your gorgeous seaside cottage to anyone who appreciates casual beach chic with top-notch amenities.

We'd love to stay here again.

Very nice, well stocked house in great location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was quite nice and had a n ocean view. It had a lovely deck that wrapped around the living room where you could sit and watch the sunset. Easy walk to beach or town. Manzanita is close to Oswald West state park and Cape Meares as well as mamy other coastal attractions.

Very Nice Home. Has it all.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this home for five nights. It is close enough to the beach and very close to the golf course. The place was clean and had a nice kitchen. We also enjoyed the view from the 2nd floor every day.

Beautiful cool deck on the hottest day of the year!

  • 5 of 5

Three women who have been best friends since grade school are celebrating our 60th birthdays this year, and as the organizer, I wanted it to be special. This house was perfect--it's a comfortable home with a well-equipped kitchen and very nice bedrooms with good mattresses. The house is just a few minutes' walk from the beach--and it's at the quiet end of Manzanita, which is nice. It's also an easy walk to the main street in town, so we really never had to use our car. The view from the deck of the ocean was lovely, and we spent lots of time out there under the shade of a beautiful tree. We happened to be there on the weekend that it was over 90 on the coast--a rare heatwave--but the house stayed pleasant and the deck was the perfect place to be. We'd planned hikes and exploring the coast, but ended up mostly staying at the house, catching up, cooking, and staying cool. The owners were very easy to work with and were generous with their hospitality--they provided beach chairs, nice bed linens and towels, and other touches that set this place apart from many vacation rentals. I will definitely return!

Lovely, comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

We brought some Montana sunshine with us, and this house provided everything else we needed. Ocean view, bird watching, room for two couples to have their privacy and spread out their "stuff " in walk-in closets. We've rented homes on the coast for years, and this is far and away the nicest and most well equipped one we've found. The kitchen has everything you need to fix a meal, including sharp knives. The beds are comfy, and each room has it's own thermostat. I could go on and on.

Perfect location, house was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Spent Father's Day weekend here and it was the best weekend I've had in awhile. House is lovely, very clean and spacious enough for two families with small children. It is within walking distance to the beach and the town, so location could not have been better. It is on higher ground that offers stunning sunset views from the living room.

Little neighborhood was very charming and we went on a walk both nights.

Great CD collection and we enjoyed playing the Mexican Train Dominoes game one evening.

Highly recommend this property. I want to go back!
