Surf Pines House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

A gorgeous cedar home nestled in over four acres of dunes and sea grass on the ocean on Oregon's north coast. Floor to ceiling windows flood all the rooms with light. The house is fully furnished with comfortable furniture and antiques. Large rooms accommodate many activities and the deck awaits your lounging and meals. Walk steps through a path on our private property to the beautiful beach; play croquet in the yard or fix dinner on the BBQ or s'mores in the fire place.

Located in a gated community (recently acclaimed as one of the 10 best in the country), half way between Seaside and Astoria, there are roads for riding, trails for hiking and history to explore. Nearby Astoria, Seaside and Cannon Beach offer theater, art and cooking schools. History museums and Lewis & Clark sites dot the area.

Credit card accepted through PayPal.: The house was remodeled in the winter of 2010 and is even more wonderful. Both bathrooms were completely remodeled with new high-end fixtures and floor and wall treatments. The kitchen has granite counters, tile floors and top quality appliances. We installed a gas furnace, fireplace and on-demand water heater and an outdoor shower. The yard can accommodate badminton and croquet as well as providing a wonderful play space for children while adults relax on the deck and new flagstone patio. The outdoor shower cleans kids and dogs.

About Susan Holloway

Charlie and I are semi-retired: he is a playwright and director and I was Head of a private elementary school. We are enjoying this phase of our lives with time for family, travel, and entertaining.

Susan Holloway purchased this house in 2002

Why Susan Holloway chose Oregon

I have always loved the beach and the peaceful days, beautiful night skies and the quiet. I wanted a house on the oceanfront, but desired privacy and protection from the wind, This house has everything I desired - nestled in the dunes and sea grass but only two minutes down my own path to the beach for those long walks, watching the pelicans and enjoying the changing sea.

Beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this beautiful oceanfront home. The best feature were the big windows in the living room. We saw a family of deer every morning and afternoon standing right in front of the windows, grazing on the grass. I loved sitting on the sofa facing the window reading my book and drinking my coffee.

The kitchen was well equipped with dishes, silverware and anything else you need to make delicious meals.

There were plenty of books on the shelves to enjoy. As well as all kinds of board games to choose from. There is a nice fire pit in the yard, surrounded by benches which was perfect for a chilly fall evening.

The beach is just a short walk away. My dogs loved the walk to the beach every morning. We had the beach to ourselves all 4 days we were there.

The couches and beds were comfortable. And I just loved the heated tile floors.

This home is clean, comfortable, close to the beach, and in a beautiful neighborhood. You can't ask for more. I would definitely recommend staying here and would love to come back.

The home was as advertised - quiet, clean and very convenient (private path) to a beautiful beach. Very spacious inside and out. A wonderful deck was peaceful and enjoyable.

Pretty Much Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We feel like this is our home away from home! From pulling into the driveway, to opening up the slider, to walking down the path to the ocean...this home creates a feeling of warmth and welcome. Susan is very responsive, helpful and accommodating. Everything you could possibly need is provided (along with spices and condiments which is so nice). Just book the trip, you'll be so happy you did. Rain or shine, it's the best home I've VRBO'd in that area. Great restaurants in Astoria and Seaside are within a 10 minutes drive, local wildlife (Elk and deer) will wander through your yard, it's amazing and refreshing. At night you are far enough from the bright lights that you can sit out on the deck (or fire pit) and star gaze. My only suggestion is for the king size bed to be in the master bedroom, but that is just a minor thing. Beds are comfy, gas fireplace is cozy on a cold morning. Enjoy!

The house is beautiful and the walk to the beach is nice and easy. On our way back from the beach to the house saw 8 elk grazing, what a beautiful sight.

Susan's house was just what we were looking for. Right off the ocean, easy access to the beach, plenty of room for the dogs to run around and a beautiful and comfortable home. If you'll have us we'll check in with you again come clam season next year! Thank you!
