If every neighborhood street looked like this, then everyday would be a permanent vacation.
The five-bedroom beauty, one of many Oregon Coast vacation rentals on our site, stirs major house envy and captures a sense of Americana all over the place, from its Southern exposure wraparound porch to its popping hues of red, yellow and blue. Purpose-built for families of 12, the home could easily double as a space featured on HGTV.
The star of planned community Bella Beach shares amenities like a common green, half basketball court, children’s play area, walking trails and a seven-mile beach. Along with its pristine pine floors and white kitchen (more Pottery Barn than country barn), the home surprises with a few extras that make it worth its summer rental rate of $2,765 per week: an air hockey table, three beach cruisers, an outdoor hot tub room and outdoor shower.
And that rush of sea you’ll be hearing while sitting on that porch swing? That would be the Pacific–just steps from the vacation rental.
Valerie Moloney is your resident blogger and the Expansion Markets Editor for Citysearch.com, who oddly enough, feels panicked when asked, "What's the best place to eat in Chicago?" or her favorite, "It's my birthday. Where should we go with a party of six?" No stranger to travel--and traveling with kids--she is a young mom who ODs on the Internet when it comes to planning family trips or buying clothes. Here's hoping she finds you the vacation you deserve.
