Overview

Arch Cape House Rental Photos and Description

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! 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 up to 11 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.

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:

We thoroughly enjoyed this house and its adjacency to Cannon Beach (the women loved Ocean Spa) and Hug Point State Park. Arch Cape is a bit of a respite from Cannon Beach and is a good location for exploring the coast. The house is well designed and equipped, clean, and has a nice view of the ocean. The deck and fire pit looking out over the ocean was a particular favorite of our group. The management company supplies wood (the management company is really great) but we recommend you bring an axe or hatchet to chop-up it up. We enjoyed the quick access to the very clean beach where there is a delightful stream that our 3 year-old granddaughter found to be more fun than the ocean! Sleeping accommodations are good (the view from the master bedroom is simply fabulous) but if there are more than 3 couples the fourth couple will have to use bunks or a futon. Not a big deal because the bunks are comfortable. This is a great place for little ones with a 'Pak and Play', nice high chair, and many great toys and kids books provided. A very nice touch. Our only issue with the house was the traffic noise from the immediately adjacent Highway 101 - particularly when sitting on the deck. This may not be an issue for you more 'urban' dwellers, but our group included folks who live on large parcels or in quiet suburbs. There is not an issue with safety for the kids because there is a fence and vegetated buffer that separates the house from the highway. We noticed that traffic dropped off significantly after 8:00 PM leaving the evenings on the deck very pleasant. But the log trucks started running promptly at first light. We recommend this house because of its location, quality and features - just know that there will be traffic noise and either bring ear-plugs (which worked pretty well) or find a house closer to the beach. :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for the awesome review. It's great that you enjoyed our home - it's one of the most popular homes in Arch Cape. It is extremely well-stocked, amenities well-planned, and is especially family-friendly. The fenced-in deck with firepit is a much-used feature of the house (there is a hatchet, but it had been accidentally you'd called us, so we could have helped you locate it!). It is, as you noted, the first home off the highway, but with a 50 foot set back, mature landscaping, a fence, and special sound-proofing windows and walls, most guests over the last six years since being renovated have not found it to be a significant issue.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was immaculately clean, accommodating and full of amenities. Every detail had been thought out - like a home straight out of a show on HGTV. It was such a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. We enjoyed our gorgeous views of the sunsets every evening along with our long walks on the beach. Highly recommend for families, girls weekends or small family reunions. Will definitely be back.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a wonderful time at Rancho Del Mar. We just stayed there for 3 days in early July. The home was thoughtfully prepared when we arrived, including the advance delivery of groceries that I had requested. Our group was myself, my husband and our 4 year old twin boys. The boys were so excited to see the beach from the house...and even more excited to find the toys and books in the playroom. Yay, happy kids! The location between Cannon Beach and Manzanita was perfect. We walked down to the beach and played every day we were there, usually more than once. The beach by "our house" was actually our kids favorite beach of the couple we visited. We ate lunches out, but the house was well equipt and it was very easy to prepare our breakfast and dinners at the house. I even bound an oyster knife and all the tools we needed to eat the crabs we brought home from our crabbing adventure. (Crabbing at Kelly's was so fun we went twice...go!) Overall a great experience and wonderful house. One other note, we have rented many vacation homes and the experience with Starfish Rentals was by far the most professional experience we've had.

We rented this home so that we could have our children and grandchildren spend the week on the Oregon Coast with us. It was wonderful. We were minutes away from the beach, where the kids had a marvelous time finding whole sand dollars and looking at tidepools. The home was beautiful and well stocked with toys that all of the grandchildren loved! It was a wonderful place to spend time with our family.
