About Katie & Steve

We have loved the Oregon coast for almost 2 decades and have made many, many trips for the day, a long weekend or longer staying between Cannon Beach and Manzanita and everywhere inbetween! Murphys Place has been a dream of ours all that time and last year, it finally came to be! We are the 3rd owners of this special home and in after buying it in 2014, we have done extensive remodeling and we hope you enjoy it as much as we have!

Katie & Steve purchased this house in 2014

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home because of its location - not oceanfront but maybe better than oceanfront as this home offers sweeping panoramic ocean & hillside views! It is literally steps to the beach via two public access paths so you can be on the beach for a happy hour walk with a glass of wine or can run up to the house if you have forgotten marshmallows for your smores at your beachside campfire! The size is perfect - its the 'not too big' home which makes it intimate for family gatherings. A reverse floorplan takes advantage of the views from almost every room on the upper level and creates a separate space for youngsters/teens on the lower level for hanging out & sleeping.

Another year of Happiness!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVE the views of this house! It is the perfect getaway and the beaches are nice and quiet. Great beach to run along, as well. You are a short car ride to downtown Cannon Beach, but if you are looking for something quiet and relaxing, this is your spot! We can not wait to come back again. Kate is very good at communicating before your arrival, once we arrived, the place was very clean and beautiful and Kate also checked in with us once we arrived to make sure everything was ok. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! Thanks again!

Annual Girls Weekend at the Coast!

  • 5 of 5

Murphy's Place is now the site for an annual girls weekend for me and six of my friends. The location is perfect: close to Cannon Beach but away from the crowds, and very close to Oswald West State Park, great for a hike in coastal rainforest. The house is very well furnished, with plenty of room for seven people. We enjoy cooking together and sharing meals at the large dining table; playing games; walking on the beach; and just enjoying the fantastic views from the large windows overlooking the beach. Everything you need is provided, and the place is kept very clean. I highly recommend a stay here, no matter what the weather is.

Fantastic view & very comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

The house was nicely laid out & the furniture was very comfortable...but the view steals the show. We had a very

rainy week but were very comfortable in the house. Will try to go back for another visit when the weather is a bit

calmer. Thanks for sharing your home with us. Jim & Mollie

Owner's Response: Jim and Mollie, Thank you so much for your nice review! Sorry to hear you got stormy weather but thats what great about the beach - if its sunny you are outside enjoying the beach and when its nasty out, you can crawl under a blanket and storm watch! We are happy to hear that you found our home comfortable and relaxing. We hope you will come back again - maybe next time in the summer months when the days are long and sunny! Thanks, Katie & Steve

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Murphy's Place. The home is exactly as pictured. It is clean and beautifully decorated. It was well equipped with kitchen items, linens, games, etc. We stayed in and cooked a few nights and were pleased with all the utensils and pots/pans they had available.

The location was a huge selling point for us. We loved watching the sunrise in the morning with our coffee, taking long walks on the beach and having our evening cocktails on the deck watching the sunset. It was a short drive to Cannon Beach which had cute shops, restaurants and a small market. We also enjoyed how quiet and peaceful Arch Cape was compared to town.

Katie was easy to work with and responsive. We would love to stay at Murphy's place again in the future!

Owner's Response: Tiffany, We are really glad to hear that you found our home exactly as described and that you loved it so much! We agree that the beach and town are very private and laid back yet convenient to stores and shopping just 5 minutes away. We really try hard to keep the house in tip top condition having the windows washed before each guest arrives to enjoy the panoramic views. We hope you will come stay with us again and thanks so much for the very nice review!! Katie and Steve

Amazing view!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed for 2 nights this summer and had a wonderful time. The house was clean and lived up to it's promise. We used the fireplace, cooked each night and walked to Hug Point. Great memories! Will definitely come again.
