From the moment you walk through the front door of this premier home, you’ll be wowed by impressive ocean views framed by floor-to-ceiling windows! A bright, airy design provides ample space for enjoying one another’s company as well as quiet retreat. The indoor living area flows through French doors to the spacious, ocean-facing deck, ideal for outdoor dining and enjoying beautiful sunsets.
Recently renovated, this single-story 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home provides the ultimate in family-friendly convenience and comfort. In-floor heat warms your toes, an outdoor hot/cold shower provides easy cleanup after a day at the beach, the covered barbecue area ensures the chef stays dry, and dimmer-switched custom lighting creates a relaxed ambiance throughout.
Rancho del Mar sleeps 11 to 12 guests. The master bedroom features a pillow-topped king-sized bed and stunning ocean views, while the very private second master suite has a queen-sized bed with minibar and half bath. The youngest guests will love their own nautical-themed retreat—a playroom with foldout futon, flat-screen TV and DVD player, and adjoining bunk room with dual twin bunk beds. Individually switched reading lights at each bunk encourage nighttime reading. A cozy fourth guest room features a twin-over-double bunk bed and desk work station (if you must).
The exceptionally well-supplied kitchen, with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, delights even the most gourmet chefs. Enjoy unhurried meals and lively conversation around the spacious custom-built dining table. The dining and kitchen areas open to a tastefully decorated living room highlighted by a stacked stone fireplace and custom-milled fir mantel. Build a crackling fire, then sink into the comfortable wraparound sofa while losing yourself in a novel or watching your favorite movie or sports channel on the cable-equipped flat-screen HD television and Blu-ray DVD player. You can also stream music or connect to the Bose surround sound system with your own device.
Just 90 seconds away, a secluded coastline beckons you to explore tide pools teeming with sea creatures, visit the caves and waterfall at Hug Point, and walk through the arch at low tide. A convenient red wagon totes boogie boards, sand toys, and chairs by day and marshmallow sticks for s’mores and stargazing by a roaring bonfire after dark. When you are ready to venture further, nearby Cannon Beach offers a plethora of swanky restaurants, fine art galleries, shops, and the famed Haystack Rock. For adventure seekers, Ecola and Oswald West State Parks, Short Sands Beach, horseback riding, crabbing, clam digging, and fishing are all close by.
You are sure to become one of the many guests who return again and again to experience the good times to be had here at Rancho del Mar.
We are a family of five, children ages 9, 11, and 15. As an active family, we especially enjoy the opportunities for outdoor recreation that the Oregon Coast offers. Our children enjoy playing in the creek that flows into the ocean in front of our home, searching for crabs and other critters in the tide pools at either end of the Arch Cape beach, surfing and boogie-boarding, and hiking nearby.
We live only 90 minutes east, in Portland, and are also avid skiers in the winter.
Arch Cape is a quiet 'suburb' of Cannon Beach. Public parking here is challenging, so the beach is often secluded. This quiet, yet centrally located beach appealed to us. Due to the outcroppings at either end of the beach, there is more protection from the wind and weather than some other coastal options.
Our home is west of Highway 101, and just the 4th house off the ocean. Visitors are always impressed by the outstanding view of the ocean from the family room and master bedroom.
We all enjoy putting together a puzzle or nestling up in front of a cozy fire. Surfing, boogie-boarding, and building sandcastles are other favorite activities.
