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.
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
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.

We enjoyed our stay so much. The house is cozy, well appointed and beautiful!
We had a great weekend getaway at this house. It had everything we needed for a great birthday celebration weekend. Loved the super easy access to the beach.
This is great place to stay on the beach, it is quiet, private and a beautiful place!!! There is a short walk to the beach through the dunes, tall grass where wildlife abounds! The house is well appointed, comfortable for a small to large gathering.
We have stayed at MANY vacation rentals, and this one is one of our favorites. The layout of the home is perfect. It is a must for me to have comfy furniture, and this home has that and more. We love all the amenities, and the laid back atmosphere of the rental itself. The owners are easy to work with and they have provided an home filled with all the things you would need on a vacation. It is like staying at a close friends home. The beach is absolutely breathtaking and would be so fun in the summer. We lucked out and had two beautiful days during our Christmas stay and enjoyed finding sand dollars on the beach. At first I was sad about not having a view of the ocean, but once I walked our own private path, and saw that view just over the hill, I was ok with that small detail. The view is still beautiful from the home, and you feel all by yourself on vacation. The beach was never busy and we enjoyed the time we spent. I also love how close this home is to shopping. I love the fact that you can feel like you are secluded in a whole other world, but then get in the car and be shopping in less that 15 minutes at good stores. There are Outlets in Seaside and a Costco, just 5 mins in the other direction from this home. It would be a dream of mine to have our own place one day in a similar location.
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.
The Dunes House is located on more than four acres in the beautiful dunes and sea grass of the northern Oregon coast. You are surrounded by wildlife and beautiful night-time skies and yet just minutes from hiking, art, museums and good restaurants. Astoria has museums, art, a working seaport and history for you to explore. Within miles you can find live theater, art, fun shopping and cooking classes. Or stay close to home and walk the miles of beaches just down our private path.
