Overview

About the property

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 HomeAway: 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. Free wifi.

Why Susan Holloway chose Surf Pines

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.

Quiet Thanksgiving week at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Even with Oregon rainy weather, this was the perfect beach getaway. Nice bedrooms, great living room and kitchen. The kitchen was well equiped. The only downside was if you were planning on using your netflix account to play movies, the tv was definitely old school. There were children DVDs, but with only adults this was not optimal.

Beautiful, secluded weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the beautiful home in the dunes. At first we really wanted to be right on the beach, but ended up loving the walk through the dunes to the beach. We would usually run across deer on our short walk to the beach and we loved the relative isolation of this home from the other homes nearby. The views from inside the home were lovely and we enjoyed watching the sunsets. The outdoor terrace was perfect for barbecuing and our dog loved playing in the backyard, which was framed by the dunes. We will be back.

Great location on the Oregon Coast

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our family at this home for four nights in late July and had a wonderful time. The home is very comfortable and well appointed. It was also great for our husky/shepherd mix. She found the balls that were available to play with immediately after our arrival. The bedrooms are cozy and bathrooms are updated. The kitchen is well stocked and the main living area is relaxing. The location is outstanding within the Surf Pines development. We made easy trips to Cannon Beach, Seaside and Fort Stevens, all within a 10-25 minute drive. The outdoor space was very nice. There is a large deck off the main living area with outdoor dining and lounge chairs as well as a fire pit and barbeque. There isn't a direct view of the ocean from the back yard, however, there is a private trail through ocean grass that takes you directly to the beach. It is an easy walk and the sound of the waves was nice to listen to while relaxing on the deck. We were treated one morning to view over 25 deer grazing just outside the living room window! Overall I would recommend staying at this property.

Very private!

  • 5 of 5

The location was very private in a gated community. The beach was a short walk away on a private path. Access to Warrenton and shopping (Fred Meyer, Costco, etc) was convenient at about 6 miles. The bedrooms were nice but the living area furniture showed some wear and tear. The 1995 Sony Trinitron TV needs to be replaced.

Overall a great place to take a family for some private time.
