"What a great week of relaxation, sunshine, beach fun, great food, and family time! The pictures, description, and information provided about the house and surroundings were spot on. It was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. We definitely enjoyed several of the restaurants suggested by the owner; great dinner at the Blackbird, hamburgers at the Wave, and pizza at Marzano's all in Manzanita. We spent the better part of morning walking in the quaint town of Manzanita, browsing in the shops, trying the handmade sweets at Manzanita Sweets, eventally making our way to lunch at The Wave. We had started off thinking we'd enjoy a burger at the Sand Dune Pub but were surprised it's not for families with kids, no minors. They were very gracious in recommending The Wave and the burgers did not disappoint. In Cannon Beach, we enjoyed dinner at the Irish Table and don't miss the amazing coffee at the Sleepy Monk Coffee Roasters. We ate plenty of meals at the house with it's fully equipped kitchen (including a tea pot which I used daily). We shopped at both Fresh Foods and The Little Apple in Manzanita, easily finding everything we needed for both gourmet and basic meals. Manzanita Golf Course was also great fun. Its nine holes provided some challenges and also great for beginners. Very reasonable greens fees. Our kids raved about the surfing, thanks to the wetsuits and boards from Cleanline Surf in Cannon Beach. Tom, at Cleanline Surf, recommended a great location for beginners to surf, Short Sands Beach, close by. Parents and children alike loved the bonfire on the beach. Clams in foil over the coals were a huge hit before roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. Our kids were begging to stay longer and we will definitely return again! Thanks for sharing a little bit of your beach heaven!"
