Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 11

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! The indoor living area flows through French doors to the spacious, ocean-facing deck, ideal for outdoor dining and appreciating the lovely sunsets. This beautifully maintained single-story, 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home provides the ultimate in family-friendly convenience and comfort.

Sleeping accommodations:

- Rancho del Mar sleeps up to 11 guests.

- The master bedroom features a pillow-topped king-sized bed and stunning ocean views.

- 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 twin bunk beds.

- A cozy fourth guest room features a twin-over-double bunk bed and desk work station (if you must).

Kitchen, dining, and living areas:

- A bright, airy design provides ample space for enjoying one another’s company or finding a spot where you can relax apart from the group.

- With granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, the exceptionally well-supplied kitchen 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 TV and Blu-ray DVD player.

- You can also stream music or connect to the Bose surround sound system with your own device.

Additional features:

- An outdoor hot/cold shower provides easy cleanup after a day at the beach, the covered barbecue area ensures the chef stays dry, and the fire pit on the deck keeps guests toasty even with a chill in the air.

- In-floor heat warms your toes, and dimmer-switched custom lighting creates a relaxed ambiance throughout.

- A convenient red wagon totes boogie boards, sand toys, and chairs to the beach by day and marshmallow sticks for s’mores and stargazing by a roaring bonfire after dark.

- The house renovations included extra thick gypcrete, sound-proofing for windows, and special insulation. It’s also got a 50-foot setback, fence, and mature landscaping. All of these help to offset highway noise, as does a happy family or group of friends enjoying time together at the coast!

Close nearby:

- 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.

- 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 just a short drive away.

About Danna Kittell

We are a family of five, children ages 11, 13, and 17. 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.

Why Danna Kittell chose Coastal Oregon

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks for the great stay in your beautiful home and the wonderful weather! Both times we have stayed at Rancho del Mar, it has felt like a perfect combination of all the beautiful, artistic designs and touches blended with a feeling that someone has gone to extraordinary efforts to put special offerings and comforts everywhere possible.

Reviewer Comments:

Home was super clean and had everything we needed! The patio has a beautiful view and is surrounded by a bit of wilderness for privacy. Very nice. It is very close to the highway, but not a big problem as there is a security fence and gates to patio.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to welcome you and your family. The deck and fire pit are a highlight especially when it's too windy on the beach for a bonfire. The north side of the property is a preserved green space with mature vegetation and pine trees which makes it very private. The home is just west of the highway with a 50 foot setback and a fence and mature landscaping on the east side of the yard. The beach is a short block away. Thanks for staying with us!

Reviewer Comments:

This vacation rental is a perfect home away from home; we had our kids, along with mother-in-law, and everyone had plenty of space and was happy! The app was so easy to use for all of the important and thoughtful details, such as directions to the beach and local shops/places to visit. This house is a jewel, although I might regret revealing as I am sure it will be quickly booked up! Some have mentioned the noise from HWY 101; yes, you are directly off of 101 but we all slept through it and found it very convenient to hop on the HWY and go. Thanks for the opportunity to stay and looking forward to our next trip already!

Beautiful Home, Probably Not Best for a Number of Friends

Reviewer Comments:

This house is great and exactly as advertised. However, renters should be very clear that there is an (amazing) Master bedroom, a second bedroom for a couple, and then two rooms with lots of bunks. Great for lots of kids, I'm sure, but not great for full-sized adults.

Owner's Response: The photos and advertising are 100% accurate - including bunk beds in two of the rooms. When this guest reserved, we were told there were six adults - a group that would have been nicely accommodated. We wish we would have known of their intent to invite lots of adult friends for Super Bowl weekend (which is understandable - it's a great venue for watching a big game). Even though we have high quality mattresses on the bunk beds, they are usually recommended for kids.

I had the pleasure of being a guest at one of the homes managed by Starfish Vacation Rentals. We stayed at Rancho Del Mar for two nights and couldn't have had a better time. What's not to love about the Oregon Coast? To be able to stay in a home that was equal to a "home away from home" made or stay just that much more special. We were greeted by a rain storm that weekend so we were serenaded by the sounds of the ocean crashing against the shore. The home itself is stunning. Beautifully furnished, fireplace, lovely "user friendly" kitchen, plenty of seating if you want to have guests and the beach is just a block down the street. Because the weather wasn't cooperating with us, we didn't get the opportunity to actually go down to the beach. But we didn't feel cheated as the view from the large living room windows and the deck were just as lovely. Access to activities within minutes of the home made for plenty to keep us busy. Everything about the home says comfort and relaxation. Starfish knows how to treat their guests and it shows. The operations manager is a joy and very helpful. She went as far as pointing out an event that was going on that evening in Cannon Beach, just minutes up the street.

We had trouble opening the lock on the home. It was totally me being technologically challenged, and the owner of the business herself took time out of her day to talk me through it. (had I followed the directions on the advance email she sent me prior to our arrival I'm guessing I wouldn't have needed to make that call.) Starfish Vacation Rentals manages several homes and we look forward to another trip to the coast and will be calling Starfish first.

Owner's Response: Wow, thank you so much for this wonderful endorsement! We try really hard to make sure our guests are well taken care of. I wish we could have ordered better weather for your stay, but alas it's been that kind of winter! Glad you got to meet our Manager, Nannette. She is very knowledgeable about the area and is very quick to reply to any questions and requests. It was great to have you and your hubby, and we look forward to your return visits!
