Surfwatcher: Great Ocean View, Across from Beach in Neahkahnie. Sleeps 8
average rating of 4.909091 based on 11 reviews


  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our Thanksgiving getaway to the beach. Bright, comfortable, and just a few steps from the beach. Great ocean views despite there being a couple of houses between you and the water. It was especially helpful for my elderly parents to find a house that was all on one floor and had only a few steps up to the door. Mike communicated with me several times ahead of our arrival and afterward. Highly recommend it.

Great Manzanita house with ocean view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Surfwatcher! The house has a great layout with the kitchen, living room and main deck all connected. The house also has everything you need, from extra blankets to beach toys for the kids. And the location is great. The beach is right across the street, and we enjoyed walking into town for coffee in the morning. Mike, the owner, was friendly and responsive. I was very happy with the house and would recommend it to others who are looking for a relaxing place to stay in Manzanita.

Great property for family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Surfwatcher for four nights in August. We enjoyed our stay very much. The home is clean and well maintained. It has a very nice, single story layout with a large family-living room adjacent to an open kitchen. The kitchen is stocked with everything needed to prepare meals. The bedrooms are good size with comfortable beds; our children enjoyed the bunk bed. The biggest plus for this property is proximity to the beach and ocean. A short walk across the street and you're on the beach which was perfect for us because our family loves walking and exploring the beach. We would definitely stay again.

The house was exactly as described on the website.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the Surfwatcher property. It had plenty of room and it was a nice touch to provide kitchen condiments and shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the showers.

The view was beautiful and relaxing. We would definitely recommend this home and hope to come back soon.

Awesome location, beautiful views, great house!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 enjoyed a very comfortable and lovely stay at the Surfwatcher this summer in July. We were able to walk to the beach easily and could view the waves directly from the deck on the side of the house. We built fires on the beach most nights after watching incredible sunsets. All of the furniture was clean and comfortable in the house and the kitchen had all we needed for family dinners, etc. We would definitely stay there again. The hiking nearby to the top of Mt.Neahkahnie was truly amazing and we all enjoyed walking to Short Sands beach on a very easily accessible trail. The town of Manzanita is also a charming place and we enjoyed eating lunch at the Sand Dune Pub several times.
