Overview

Arch Cape House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

We invite you to treat yourself to few days away and experience a romantic summer, fall, winter or spring visit at a beautiful and comfortable beach house,” Capehaven” with its panoramic ocean view! Experience the beauty and ambiance of the Oregon Coast in a cozy enclave of full time resident beach homes. You will be immersed in the true essence of the Oregon coast experience. Our secluded beach offers the beauty and privacy that is hard to match.

If you are looking for a fabulous beach house with an incredible ocean view that is a great value you have found it! In this economy we appreciate that you want the best beach house for your vacation dollar and our rates for this home are lower than you would expect for a home with this location, amenities & quality. Capehaven was originally designed, built and furnished to be a full time residence, but is now available for others to enjoy as well. We want our first time guests to be pleasantly surprised when the stay at Capehaven!

This classy, new 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, 2440 sq ft, ocean view custom home, is uniquely located at the end of very quiet dead end lane. Capehaven is just a stone’s throw away from the beach. Beach access is an easy 90 seconds to walk and at the end of the path you will find the Capehaven firepit with chairs right on the beach! Once shown the way, it is reasonable for older children to walk from the house to and from the beach without worries.

With amenities such as a cozy fireplace, radiant heated floors through-out, original artwork in each room, tasteful furnishings and décor. The master suite with an ocean view and walk-in master shower makes Capehaven a cut above your average rental beach house. All cooking and meal essentials are provided along with family games, puzzles, toys, movies and books.

Capehaven has 3 large covered decks (one with a barbeque) and a fourth open deck with an ocean view. The warm tasteful decor, open floor plan, gourmet kitchen with a view of Castle Rock makes 'Capehaven' the perfect home for an Oregon coast retreat.

Friends and family will enjoy Capehaven's backyard oasis with its year round gazebo covered saltwater HOT TUB. Just steps away from the hot tub are a formal fire pit with outdoor sitting. Perfect for making s’mores or just hanging out. This backyard oasis is connected to the Capehaven's large (12'x12') furnished covered back deck complete with hot & cold water to rinse off that beach sand. In addition to the house back door, there is also a large sliding door that to the first floor multipurpose room.

On a stormy day you may want to stay inside the house and relax in front of the cozy fireplace in the comfortable living room watching the waves crash against Castle Rock while enjoying your favorite music piped throughout the entire living areas.

Five miles north of 'Capehaven' just minutes away is Cannon Beach with its unique shops, art galleries and the famous Haystack Rock. About a mile north up the road to Cannon Beach is the popular Hug Point State Park with it beautiful water fall and sandstone caves. Five miles to the south of Capehaven is Oswald State Park, a popular surfing spot, and few more miles south of Oswald State park is the quaint beach town of Manzanita.

We invite you to treat yourself to few days away and experience a romantic summer, fall, winter or spring visit at Capehaven. Experience the beauty and ambiance of the Oregon Coast in a cozy enclave of full time resident beach homes. You will be immersed in the true essence of the Oregon coast experience. Our secluded beach offers the beauty and privacy that is hard to match.

Note that we continue to get recent reviews entered by our guests, not by us, the owners. If you decide to stay at Capehaven and are not satisfied, please let us know and we will work something out.

About Bob Low

Bob 'retired' from the big aerospace company in Seattle in Jan 2006. Sue is a 'retired' school administrator who also hasn't figured out that retirement doesn't mean continuing to work as a consultant. We live full time in a historic brick 1923 English Tutor Cottage in Portland, Oregon but enjoy our escapes to our comfortable contemporary beach house, Capehaven.

Capehaven was designed to take advantage of our many visits to the beach, watching the seasonal weather patterns and the available views of the beach and the nearby hills to the east. When you stay at Capehaven, you will find that we both have a creative side and take pride in creating a warm and inviting and tasteful environment in our homes. Sue simply can't help herself from keeping the beach house fresh and tastefully decorated. And Bob can’t help himself from making additional improvements like building the gazebo over the hot tub and designing the firepit area in the backyard. As Capehaven guests, you will get to enjoy the results of our passions.

Bob Low purchased this house in 1990

Why Bob Low chose Coastal Oregon

We always loved coming down to Cannon Beach, however the crowds there have gotten to be a bit much in the summer. We discovered Arch Cape over 20 years ago and it is still the undiscovered gem of the Oregon Coast. It has a unspoiled natural beauty that is hard to match. It is so nice to be able to run into Cannon Beach take in the art and shops and then come back to the serenity and raw beauty that the Arch Cape community and beaches offer.

What makes this house unique

Capehaven was designed to take advantage of all the available beach views! There is the breakfast deck on the east side of the house where you can enjoy your morning coffee with the sun coming up over the beautiful hills to the east. The covered ocean view north deck on the west side of house allows you to BBQ and dine outside rain or shine with a wind protection from the south, or there's ocean view sun deck on the southwest side that has wind protection from the prevailing summer breeze. During the cooler months, you will enjoy the radiant heated floors which are throughout the house, and the cozy gas fireplace in the living room. The beach is literally a stones throw away and there is an easy path to beach. There is a large covered lower deck in the back with outside warm & cold water so that you can hose the kids down after an afternoon on the beach. For those who are looking for a romantic getaway, the lighting was designed to allow you to set the perfect mood, and then there's the built in sound system throughout the upstairs to complete the setting.

New in 2011- Hot Tub with pergola, connecting decks to the existing large covered back deck, makes hot tubing fun rain or shine. A new fire pit is just 3 steps down from the hot tub deck making the back yard new oasis for just hanging out!

Guestbook comments from the owner

OUR STAY WAS PERFECT!!!

We absolutely loved your home. And it was very clean. We were actuaully suprized that you're willing to share such a beautiful home with strangers.

We are planning another reunion next year and want to stay at your house again. I'm curious though. I have a degree in architectural studies, specializing in interior design and I can really critique any building I've been in (including my own home). But your home is flawless. I just have to say that the house is one of the best-planned, built, and furnished homes I've ever been in. You've done an excellent job and should be very proud.

Thank you for letting us stay in your home. We hope to stay again next year.

Thanks again,

Vera

Wonderful property with great view!

  • 5 of 5

Just like being at home -only better. Bigger kitchen, better view, hot tub, and easy beach access. So many good things to say about this home. Beautifully decorated with comfortable beds. Spacious living quarters to accommodate large groups without crowding. View! View! View! Well kept, clean and up to date. Impressed kids ages 17-29 ( a hard crowd to please). We would absolutely stay here again. Thanks Bob and Sue for sharing your home with us.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was terrific. The house is great - plenty of space on two levels. Great kitchen with more than enough cooking equipment. Great little areas to relax. Easy walk to the beach. Spectacular ocean views from the second floor living space. We had a fantastic stay there. Perfect for three couples.

Great house, great location - best we've had on VRBO so far

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at CapeHaven. It is away from the hussle/bussle of Cannon Beach and on a beautiful stretch of beach. The house is spacious and with 4 kids and 5 adults we had plenty of space for everyone to sleep and enjoy their time. The beach is right across the street and the view from the kitchen is fabulous. The house was very clean and incredibly well-stocked. We would highly recommend to anyone wanting to enjoy the N. OR Coast.

Beautiful , quiet, serene property. Out of the hubbub of Cannon Beach.

  • 5 of 5

These property owners thought of everything! A well stocked home for those briniging their family for a beach vacation. The fire pit at the beach was especially nice. Our grandchildren loved s'mores watching the sun set.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Best property on VRBO so far

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with kids ages 7, 9 and 11. We rent a house every year at a new destination to spend some time traveling the U.S. but having the comforts of home. A hotel just doesn't cut it even with all of our business travel points. This house is REALLY great. The walk across the street to the beach is really just a few feet down the little gravel drive that cuts between about 6 houses. It's that close. You can look out the windows all day long and see the waves as well as hear the roar of the surf.

I can't stand sand grit on the floor when you're walking barefoot in the house and there's a nice area on the back porch with hot and cold water to hose off your feet as well as the little kids' bodies so that you're not dragging sand into the house. The privacy fence is high enough that no one sees and the kids can go straight into the lower level which is where their shower and bedrooms were located.

The master and the rest of the living space is upstairs. It's spacious yet cozy and the kitchen is fully stocked with whatever tools/dishes you would need. There's also a pantry that has a few things to share as well as some spices. We left a jar of mayo and ketchup in the fridge and hot dogs and buns in the freezer. Help yourself if you're the next person there!

There is a firepit outside the deck as well as one down on the beach with several chairs. We used both for s'mores since it rained one evening. The beach was great and not crowded. It felt very secluded and not touristy at all. You have nearby Cannon Beach for that. If you're touring the coast, make a stop at Tillamook Cheese Factory to see cheese being made and Pacific Oyster to see oyster shucking in the AM. We also saw several whales at various stops down the coast.

We'd rent this house again in a heartbeat. It felt like our home away from home and the movie selection for the kids was awesome when they needed some down time. Make sure to watch Goonies since it was filmed in nearby Astoria!

This homeowner has put some thought into making this place an ideal vacation rental and I think you will appreciate the little touches as well as the great property as much as we did.

Arch Cape
Car: necessary

Arch Cape beach is very private with mostly local residents and very few tourists. Capehaven has a private fire pit at the end of the beach path with chairs and wood for the firewood available. You can see and/or experience nearby surfing at the popular Short Sands Beach. The scenic Hug Point is only 1/2 mile away and when the tide is out you walk directly to the fabulous beach. The arts town of Cannon Beach is 5 minutes away!
