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 and a view of the golf course off the master bedroom deck. 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 new 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 Northern Coast

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.

Sweet little house

Loved this house! View from the deck was awesome! Great short walk to beach. Very spacious and comfortable. Pretty beach touches throughout. Enjoyed the fireplace on a rainy day.

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!

Perfect location, great house.

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here over Memorial weekend and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Our teen boys shared the comfortable 2 twins room, grandma had the downstairs queen bedroom and we had the master suite upstairs. The location is fantastic, set back from the beach enough to get a break from the wind but still a great view. In the opposite direction a few yards away is the golf course. Town and the city park are a longer walk or quick bike trip away. The house is very comfortable with all the amenities you need. We really enjoyed their classic CD collection while playing Monopoly at the dining table!

Excellent Location, Very Comfortable, Great View of Ocean

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I came to the beach with another couple for crabbing & clamming. Short drive for both. Bill & Carol's home is very lovely, with a nice beach decor. Has a wood burning fire place, wood provided, and a wonderful view of the ocean from the great room. The open concept main floor (top floor) was spacious and comfortable. The wrap around deck, also on top floor, has the great view of the ocean. The home had everything we needed, we only had to bring food & our toiletries. The beds were very comfortable and having 2 1/2 baths, made it convenient for 2 couples. Carol was very accommodating with our arrival and departure times. There is a short drive to the main street, Laneda, and we had dinner at Left Coast Siesta, a Mexican restaurant. Really good tortilla soup. Also went to the San Dune Pub for a late dinner and they had a live band and dancing. Very fun and friendly place. I have no negatives about Carol & Bill's home and would highly recommend it for couples and families.

Perfect Family Beach House!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay at this Manzanita, OR Beach House! First of all, the owners were so gracious and easy to communicate with. They answered all our questions regarding our "first time" VRBO experience and made us feel so welcome. Even with a last minute request before our arrival, they answered with an "of course" and were delightful to visit with. Now the house - it was perfect for our family time at the beach. The house is very clean and very well equipped - from the bathrooms, to the kitchen, to the beach toys - nearly everything was right at our finger tips! The beds are very comfortable and two full and one half baths made family living easy. The laundry room downstairs was invaluable with a beach vacation as you can imagine. We stayed with our son, daughter-in-law, and three granddaughters and had wonderful meals, evenings on the deck with a beautiful ocean view, and, of course, a lot of good beach time which was only a five minute walk west!! The town of Manzanita has such charm and has a variety of shops and restaurants. And it isn't too much of a drive to the Tillamook Cheese Factory for ice cream! All in all, this house is great for a family, a couple of couples, or possible a girls weekend. We hope to stay there again!
