Description from owner

Wonderful Manzanita Oregon Beach House Retreat with DSL internet access ( WiFi wireless internet access). Three bedroom, two bath beach vacation home located in north Manzanita, Oregon (Neahkahnie). This vacation rental is situated on a large lot in a beautiful setting. Large panoramic windows overlook Neah-kah-nie Mountain and meadows where the resident elk often graze. There is a nice view fom every room. (the photo of the beach is not the view from the house, it is the beach you see when you walk 5-7 minutes down the street.) This location is very unique. You look outside and feel like you are in the mountains and walk 7 minutes down the street to a gorgeous beach! Downtown Manzanita is close by as well.

This Manzanita vacation home has beautiful hardwood floors, high-end linens and a fully equipped kitchen.

We took pride to provide the highest quality furnishings, linens and kitchenware. The sheets are high thread count 100% cotton, the duvet covered comforters and pillows are high-end down and the towels are plush and soft. Each room is designed very tastefully. We have children, so we decorated the twin room with them in mind. (Regatta theme) There are also books, board games and dvds for all ages, child's table and chairs and a large yard to run and play with a tree house and swing set (tire swing and climbing platform).

We love to cook (and eat) and invite you to take full advantage of our amply equipped kitchen. There is a coffee maker, toaster and microwave, waffle maker, rice cooker, roaster, grill, blender, popcorn maker...and much more. There is a deck, table and chairs in the back and a charcoal barbecue for outside grilling.

Just a short 5-7 minute walk to a spectacular beach (see photo of beach) and a one mile walk to downtown Manzanita, Oregon.

This home is a wonderful place to have a fun, relaxing family vacation or a romantic beach getaway.

No smoking/ Pets on case by case with $25 pet fee. Thank you!

About the area

Here's some information about things to do in or near Manzanita. Oswald West State Park is located a few miles north of our house. This is a great place for the family, and one of our favorite destinations. The short walk from the parking lots to the beach is beautiful (rain forest with bridges, rivers etc) and the beach is wonderful. Hug Point - about 10 minute drive north of our house on HWY 101. During low tide, you can go inside caves and see lots of sea life in tidepools. Arcadia Beach - just north of Hug Point. It's best during low tide. Beautiful beach, lots of tide pools and large rocks jutting out of the water. In Manzanita, you have everything you need from ice cream stores to very nice restaurants. You can go horseback riding, rent a kayak, rent a surfboard (Oswald West beach is great for surfing), go fishing in Nehalem River just south of Manzanita. The mountain you see from our house is called Neahkahnie Mountain. There's great trails to hike, and an amazing view of the coast. Nehalem, couple miles south of Manzanita, is located on the Nehalem River which empties into Nehalem Bay. The river offers excellent fishing. The Nehalem Dock offers a small float with benches for sitting and enjoying the peace of the river (located next door to Nehalem Dock Restaurant). There is a public boat launch just south of Nehalem with a large parking lot and easy access for kayakers wishing to paddle on the river or up to the estuary at Wheeler. Wheeler, a few south of Nehalem offers several large antique stores. It's a small but nice town to visit. Tillamook is about 30 minutes south and they have tours at the Tillamook Cheese factory. I prefer to be outside, but the kids enjoyed it. There is also an Air Museum in Tillamook. If you chose to not go anywhere but the beach down the street, that's great too.

“Very comfortable home!”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2011

This house was as advertised, in a beautiful setting and a short walk to the beach and to town. It was very clean and comfortable with high quality touches (nice bedding and flatware, for instance). Wonderful rental. and we loved our stay. Thank you!

“Such a relaxing time!”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2011

Thank you for letting us stay at your really cool beach rental. We had such a good time and the kids are still talking about it! It was so roomy for our family and our friend's family. The kitchen was easy to cook in-with all of us! The view out the windows were like being in the country. . with the beach being a 5 minute walk just like you said. The part of the beach it led to was less crowded than other areas! We all hiked to the tip top of Neahkahnie Mountain and loved it! Over all it was a nice break!

“August Stay”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2008

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was pretty kid-friendly, comfortable, and had an excellent location, very near the beach (a five minute walk), and so much to see and do if one is willing to get in the car and take short half day trips.

“Excellent in every way.”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2008

This property was better than expected! Property was very clean, fully equipted kitchen, bathroom, laundry and living areas, upgraded linens were appreciated. We enjoyed both vcr and dvd players for movies. Super location to town, resturants, ice cream shops and beaches. The house had a lot of upgrades and had recent remodeling giving it a modern feel. Huge private lot with great views of surrounding peaceful homes in meadows offered a wonderful quiet setting. The BBQ, childrens playhouse and large separate outdoor deck were great as was the weather. This home is great for families with children. The visiting Elk and deer were a extra bonus as was the short walk to the beach. We recommend staying here and visiting Manzanita because of our fantastic experience.

“Amazing Home, Amazing Place”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2008

Words cannot describe how much we love this little house in Manzanita. It is so pretty, clean and has a very comfortable feel. The location can't be beat, with access to both the beach and town. The kids loved running around the huge backyard, while we hung out on the porch late into the evenings. We will continue to return to this home in the years to come without hesitation!

“A lovely vacation!”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2008

We love Manzanita, and your little cottage is just perfect! We used to go to Seaside, but once we stayed at your place, we were Manzanita converts. The house is clean, well stocked, and exceptionally comfortable. There is a bubbling creek nearby, and I have seen lot's of deer and serene wildlife right outside our window. Last year my friend's came to visit, and their kids had a blast frolicking in the playhouse and the sizeable yard. The beach there is amazing. The best sunsets I have ever seen. When we stay there we have a bonfire on the beach every night. It is truly magnificent, and hard to leave. Thank you again for turning us on to your vacation rental!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

This rental is now one of our favorites. Manzanita is charming and quaint, yet offers delicious restaurants, cafes, and everything else we needed for the perfect vacation. Your home is very pleasant and comfortable. We were expecting a house for children from the description, but it was the perfect place for a couple who wanted to spend a romantic and relaxing weekend. The only downside is that you are not on the beach. But, it is a quick and easy walk to a wonderful beach. We're glad we discovered your home. We'll be back.

Thank you for all your help and recommendations. We visited Oswald West State Park, Arcadia Beach and Hug Point as you recommended. The tide pools and caves during low tide were great for the kids. One can tell that you take pride in your home. We enjoyed our vacation immensely and have plans to return in July. This home will be our first choice!! Is it available for the 4th weekend?

The house was wonderful, we loved it, we had a nice stay and we enjoyed Manzanita, it is a really nice town. I think you did a good job organizing the house for renters...

Hi Leah -

We had a wonderful time, it is a great house and the beach was fantastic! Thanks for the recommendations about the nearby beaches, we visited several of them frequently. The tidepools and sandcastles were great, we even took a horse ride on the beach! We saw Elk one day and Deer at least 2 others, it was a great place to unwind! We are already talking about coming back every year.

Thanks again!

Roger & family




Leah,
Vacation was great. The house was perfect for us. It made thing easy not having to go out to eat every day. It was wonderful to be able to relax and do our own thing. The town was a perfect size.
Thanks again, everything was perfect!

Hi Leah,
My trip is still unfolding; I'm up in Seattle now. But
before I got too far away, I wanted to thank you for
opening your wonderful home in Manzanita to me. I
enjoyed myself immensely, and it was perfect to
jumpstart my book. Deer came every morning with fawns
and nibbled in the yard. There was a soothing mix of
sun, fog, sun and rain. The house itself was cozy and
your paintings were delightful. May you and your
family enjoy this getaway for many memory-making years
to come.
Thanks again,
David
