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.

Beautiful Oregon Coast Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This property was true to its previous reviews. The view certainly did steal the show! We used this home for a girls trip of four so each of us had our own bed which was nice. I might add all the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed using the kitchen for a couple evening meals and breakfasts. The deck was awesome to view the sunset! We had a few issues with technology but all in all it did not damper our vacation. I was in touch with Katie about them and she tried very hard to resolve the issues. One suggestions we do have though, would be to supply a few more basic spices for cooking. Salt and pepper were all that was available at the house. We made due with that as we weren't keen on spending a bunch of money on spices. We would come back to this home for future visits! Thank you Katie and Steve

Perfect OR beach house

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family (with two kids) trip to OR. I was happy to find and book this house. The descriptions and reviews looked great. But when we arrived it exceeded all our expectations. The house is beautifully decorated creating a perfect setting for a beach vacation. You can enjoy ocean views from most of the rooms in the house. It’s well equipped, thoughtfully furnished and super clean. It feels like you moved in to a new house. The main deck is fantastic. We spent hours there enjoying the sun and the ocean. The house is only a few steps from the beach. It’s located in a private and extremely quiet neighborhood. Even with a few houses on that street you don’t see or hear many people, even on the weekend. It feels like you have miles and miles of sand to yourself. At the same time you are very close (less than 10 min drive) to Manzanita and Cannon Beach with many restaurants, shops and galleries. The owners were helpful and responsive to our questions. We really love the time we spent on OR coast, but it wouldn’t be that enjoyable without having this great house. When we plan our next OR beach vacation I would definitely book this house again.

A wonderful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely 3 nights at Katie & Steve's place. The house had everything we needed and more. We had 4 adults and 4 kids. The kids had a great time setting up their own space downstairs and the adults were equally as comfortable. We woke early every morning and stared at the breathtaking views of the ocean, went for runs on the beach, which was steps away from the house. We went into Cannon Beach for a morning and were so happy to return to the quiet and peacefulness of the house. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Great location--beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful and it is in a perfect location--close to Cannon Beach shops and restaurants yet far enough away from the crowds and traffic. It was very clean and was a perfect layout for our family. The view is amazing and it is a nice, uncrowded beach!!

If I could find one negative it would be that the kitchen is a little difficult to do serious cooking. The stove (I'm assuming it is propane?) was difficult to get low, medium and high heat and the pots and pans need to be updated (there isn't a griddle that we could find).

All in all it was a great vacation and I would definitely consider returning!

Owner's Response: Sandy, Thanks for taking the time to write a review on your recent stay at our home! Glad you enjoyed our home and loved the amazing beach at Arch Cape - its one of the best kept secrets on the Oregon coast! Sorry to hear that the stove was hard to gauge the heat. We try to provide a fully stocked kitchen and we will be doing a full inventory soon to see what we may need to replace/update. Hope to have you as a guest again soon! Katie
