About Brenda Gunderson

My husband Dave and I are both native to the Northwest and currently live in Portland. I am a Artist, Realtor and a Portland native, and Dave is a semi-retired commercial fisherman and marine electrician from Alaska.. so of course he loves the coast. We like to buy and fix up properties and have some other rentals in Portland, so when times got tough, we knew it made sense to rent out our beach house to help cover the cost of owning a second home. We are new to Home Away and VRBO, but in the 5 years we have been doing short-term rental in Manzanita, we have enjoyed the experience of sharing our little piece of Oregon paradise. We have been married 7 years, and between us we have three children, 4 grand children, and a siberian husky, McKinley. Whenever we think we might be too busy to head off to the coast, we just take one look at our dog and picture him running down the beach with his tongue hanging out and the decision is made.

Why Brenda Gunderson chose Manzanita

One of our favorite things about our beach home is the location. My husband and I love Manzanita. It isn't as touristy as many beach towns, but there are enough shops and restaurants to entertain us and everyone is friendly. The little grocery store in the middle of town seems to have everything and the Sand Dune pub often has excellent food and live music (and they let dogs come through to sit on the back deck). The open stretch of beach is amazing and protected from the wind and weather somewhat by nearby Neakahnie Mountain, but we still get enough wind to attract Kiteboarders on some afternoons. Speaking of mountains, the trailhead is only 5 minutes away and we enjoy hiking to the top for exercise and taking in the amazing view. We love to crab/fish in Nehalem Bay, bike/walk at the nearby statepark or head 20 minutes North to watch the surfers at Oswald West State park and explore the caves at Another favorite past time is antique shopping in Wheeler just 10 minutes south, or collecting driftwood and mussels at Manahattan Beach wayside near Rockaway about 20 minutes south. We love the privacy and quiet our home offers too for the times we just want to hang out and relax. I don't think we've ever come to our home in Manzanita and not enjoyed our stay.

What makes this house unique

With the warmth inside and set back in the trees, a few blocks from the beach, the storm can be raging and you'll feel safe and warm. With the bright decor you are uplifted, even on the gloomiest days. On sunny days you can catch rays on the private back deck and hardly know the wind is blowing or that nearby neighbors even exist. It is a second home for us, not just a vacation rental and we think this feeling of 'home' will shine through, from the decor to the books, games, kids toys and well stocked kitchen, you'll have everything you need to snuggle in and feel comfortable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful Happy Birthday Sarah Weekend. The weather was beautiful, we enjoyed kite flying on the beach, local crabs & oysters for dinner and all around everything about this cozy fun beach house! We hope to be back for more fun, more soaks n the hot tub, more foosball tournaments and fires on the deck.

Beautiful, comfortable, roomy

  • 5 of 5

This house was better than pictured. You can't always tell from tiny pictures, so we were really happy when we stepped inside. Very clean and comfortable. The furnishings were not cheap IKEA or grandma cast-offs. Everything we needed was stocked in the kitchen. The kitchen is huge and nice to cook in. Super close to the beach, and a quick stroll down the beach gets you into town. Beds were comfy, and the kids loved the foosball table and hot tub. Plenty of space and bathrooms for a big group, though we were only 5. Our toddler had fun with the Chevron collection and basket of toys. Oh, and the TV/fireplace wall was awesome! We'll definitely be back, probably with friends.

Perfect for a weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our annual ladies weekend away from our husbands and kids! The upstairs living space and kitchen were huge, which was perfect as there were seven of us. We could all eat around the table or lounge for movie time. The music system was incredible and easy to use. We loved all the charm this house had to offer - the décor is really unique and a lot of fun. Everyone slept comfortably and we made use of the hot tub each night. Another bonus was the second fridge downstairs - with food and drinks for seven, we made use of that! We would rent this home again and are hoping to return next year.

Fantastic home at Manzanita on the Oregon Coast

  • 5 of 5

From the time we were welcomed by the mermaid on the garage until we said good bye, we had a wonderful time. Very clean, well maintained, convenient, and a great place to renew friendships with 6 college classmates! (Nurses from the class of 1967 Jamestown College,ND. ) The owner provided much help and answered all our questions. I would definitely recommend this home. Manzanita is a fun town and also close to Cannon Beach and Tillamook.

Delightful stay, perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

We had a mini "reunion" at this lovely home, and everything was perfect. There is plenty of room, even for an unexpected husband who showed up. The bedrooms are comfy and quiet, the neighborhood lovely and convenient and the kitchen was perfect to allow individual cooks to get to work. There is a separate basement that worked out great for the young ones and the beach supplies and wagon in the garage are an unexpected bonus. Every appliance worked fine, lots of hot water, an excellent grill and dual washers and dryers to help with the cleanup. The location is perfect, one block from the beach, two blocks from town and the coffee shop, yet far enough from town to avoid the daytrippers and excess traffic. We will be back, it truly feels like home.

Fantastic Stay in Manzanita

  • 5 of 5

Great place with nice decor and furnishings, good kitchen, hot tub, etc. Good location a short walk to the beach or to town. It was super clean and well stocked and had a great television and sound system for music. We used to go to Canon Beach, but we find Manzanita is much less crowded. Great pub in town. Don't miss the best beach in the Pacific Northwest - Short Sands beach in Oswald State Park nearby - great for surfing! Horseback rides nearby were fun too.

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We were two adults, five teenagers and a dog. There was plenty of space for all of us to both be together as a group, and plenty of space for us to find privacy, too. The decor is colorful and fun, and we let the reggae station on the surround sound play all week. The house is only a few blocks to the beach, and a few blocks to Marzano's pizza parlor and everything you might need. The hot tub was a HUGE hit with the teens. We had heavy hail one day when the kids were in the tub, and that was exciting! The kitchen is well equipped, and there are more big fluffy towels than I've ever seen outside of Bed Bath and Beyond.

A short walk to the beach and downtown. Hop in the car for a quick drive North to the Nehakanie Mountain trail head...haunted by the legend of lost Spanish treasure.
