From the moment you walk through the front door, prepare to be wowed by amazing ocean views through grand picture windows in the living room and master bedroom. A spacious, flowing layout provides ample area both for gathering together with family and friends as well as quiet retreat. French doors extend the living area to the west-facing deck for outdoor dining and taking in vibrant ocean sunsets.
Rancho del Mar was completely renovated and updated in 2010. We contemplated each detail with the goal of creating a welcoming and unique vacation home experience for our guests! Your toes will delight from the warmth of the in-floor heat as you step out of bed in the morning; your senses will be awakened by the chic ocean-inspired décor; and your stay will be carefree because of convenient features like the outdoor hot/cold shower and covered barbecue area.
Prepare even the most gourmet meals in the well-equipped kitchen including beautiful contemporary dish and stemware, plenty of cookware, regular and specialty appliances, spices, cooking oil, and plenty of paper goods. Make a special treat for the kids with the Belgian waffle iron and electric ice cream maker; adults can use the blender to whip up their own margarita treat. You will enjoy unhurried meals and lively conversation around the spacious custom-built dining table with dimmer-switched lighting.
From the master bedroom, linger in the comfortable king size bed as you awaken to the sight of the ocean. Walk out the French doors to the deck to take in your morning coffee and the smell of the ocean air.
A second couple or in-laws can retreat to the very private second master suite furnished with a queen bed, en suite 1/2 bath and mini-bar.
Our youngest guests will LOVE their own nautical-themed play room and dual bunk rooms. Night-time reading is a pleasure with individually switched reading lights at each bunk. Books, toys, puzzles, DVDs, a flat-screen TV and DVD player will keep them entertained when not playing in the outdoor sandbox or down at the beach. A high chair, port-a-crib, red wagon, and kids’ dishware are conveniently provided as well.
You will find many ways to unwind and rejuvenate during your stay:
- Sink into the comfortable wrap-around sofa and watch the mesmerizing storms roll in.
- Select from our extensive library of books and games and cozy up in front of the wood-burning fireplace (unlimited wood provided).
- Watch a movie or your favorite sports on the cable-equipped HDTV - both in house DVD selection and Netflix are available.
- Listen to streaming music or bring your iPod/iPhone and connect to surround sound through the docking station.
- If you must stay connected, wireless internet and a land line with free long distance are provided.
- Our insider's concierge book can guide you to the many 'not to miss' nearby attractions such as beautiful hikes in Ecola State Park and Oswald West State Park, surfing spots such as Short Sands Beach, horseback riding along the beach in Manzanita, and crabbing and fishing adventures in Nehalem Bay.
Located only five miles south of Cannon Beach, with its many restaurants, art galleries, shops, and the famed Haystack Rock, Arch Cape is a quiet, peaceful community. The easy beach access one block west of Rancho del Mar leads to a nearly secluded beach bordered by Hug Point to the north, the arch to the south, and tide pools at both ends filled with starfish, sea anemones, and crabs. Grab the provided beach toys, boogie boards, and sand chairs, and head to the beach! After dark, head back to the beach for a bonfire, s'mores (marshmallow sticks provided) and stargazing!
We have tried to provide special amenities to make you feel welcome and at home from the moment you arrive - a basket full of coastal treats and our signature chocolate starfish, plush bath and beach towels, extra blankets and pillows, spa soaps, and plenty of paper goods. If we can provide anything additional to make your vacation more enjoyable, please let us know.

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.
