About Carolyn O'Brien

I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon where I currently live and work as a Wedding and Event Planner.

Carolyn O'Brien purchased this house in 1971

Why Carolyn O'Brien chose Coastal Oregon

My brother, sister and I have been vacationing in this home since 1971. Our parents made the very smart purchase before Cannon Beach became one of the most sought after spots on the Oregon Coast! I now manage the rental of this home so that it will stay in the family for years to come.

What makes this house unique

In the late 90's we had to move the house from where the Pig n' Pancake parking lot is now. At the time it was an ordeal, but the move enabled us to take the house off Hemlock, add another bedroom, bathroom and fenced backyard and still be in walking distance of the beach and town. All in all, a very good move!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our third trip to Cannon Beach and our third time to stay at this cozy cottage. We had a great time on Family Fun Cycles, visiting the Seaside Aquarium and building fires on the beach in the evening. What a beautiful treat. Thanks for sharing your vacation home with us again.

Steps to Town, Steps to the Beach!
average rating of 4.5 based on 72 reviews

Wonderful home with plenty of space and rooms for a big group.

  • 4 of 5

The proximity of the house is great! It's so easy to walk to town, the sleepy monk and of course the beach. No view of the beach, but still very easy to get to the beach. The only bummer is the early morning parking of the church goers, which woke us up each morning, but otherwise it was great. Highly recommend for the ease of getting to town and the beach. Very clean.

Amazing Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED, LOVED, LOVED staying at the O'Brien beach house!! You step out of the front door and look left and THERE is the Pacific Ocean!! The house was blocks away from the main shopping area, the beach,and grocery store. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to prepare meals. I can't say enough how WONDERFUL our experience at Cannon Beach was!!! Can't wait to come back!! Carden Crew!!

This property is perfect. It is close to the beach, the city center and provides a nice little hideaway from it all. It's cozy and clean and very well maintained!

Great house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful mid-week stay. The house is beautiful, roomy, well-appointed and stocked. 1 block to downtown, 1 block to the beach; we could be anywhere within 5min walk.

Highly recommended, and we definitely plan to be back.

Our third time staying here

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying here and we look forward to a fourth! We enjoyed our daily walks on the beach to Haystack rock, and also our daily walks into town to the candy store. We cooked dinner all 3 nights, built 2 puzzles on the large dinning table, and watched movies nightly. This house is clean and has everything your need. The location is perfect for walks to the beach and the town.
