Guestbook comments from the owner

"I cannot tell you how great our Beach time in your amazing home was! Feels like we have moved to the Beach. You have such a fully geared beach house & graced with spices/condiments/necessities kitchen & thought of so many 'nicities' too, like kleenx and soaps and nightlights, waffle iron & sturdy mixer. Thank you, thank you. We love the new stove . . . appreciated the new coffee maker as well. So nice to program our 1st morning cup--[kids] got us up before the sun. We had a mixture of rain, sun & wind, though well placed & gave kids lots of sand play time.

, , Oh how we loved the fireplace, building a fire each morning and some evenings. Great supply of seasoned wood too. Thank you. . . We are making such wonderful family memories. Again, thank you."

Best views on the coast from comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

Stunning views from the living area, deck and two bedrooms. Very nicely furnished with numerous personal touches and supplied with the essentials (paper products, kitchen gadgets, binoculars, games, etc.) Dana was very helpful and accommodating and seemed happy to share their beach house with their guests. Thoroughly enjoyable walks atop the dunes in Bob Straub state park and along the beach to the cape itself where we climbed the dune and watched dories and hang gliders. The tide pools were amazing. We would love to make this trip to 'A Front Row to the Pacific' an annual visit.

Beautiful home right on the beach. Very comfortable with a spectacular view. All the amenities you may require and a very nice owner also. If you seek a splendid home with only sand between you and the ocean, look no further. This is it!

Right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful birthday/ family reunion with our 2 sons and daughter-in-law last week-end at this lovely home, right on the beach with beautiful ocean views in all directions. With the warm fireplace, great kitchen for meals, and awesome beach views, a rainy day did not bother us at all. The owners were very friendly and always so helpful. We enjoyed the Pelican Pub for good beer and great beach setting. I'd skip the expensive dishes like the rockfish and the pork which were not very good and just stick with the clam chowder, which was delicious, pasta or fish and chips. Also enjoyed the steep hike up the big sand dune near the Pelican Pub. We'd love to come back for another stay. Even our sons were saying how much fun it was and we should do it again. I agree!

Wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home and making it available to reserve thru VRBO! Beautiful, comfortable and well cared for accommodations. Incredible view and beach accessibility. We enjoyed a great weekend with family and hope to return. Only thing that would have made it better was being able to use the French doors to hear the surf and access the deck from the one bedroom. Thank you!

Perfect family friendly home

  • 5 of 5

This home offered such a great experience. The easy access to the beach made it comfortable to let the kids play outside and watch them from the living room or deck. And no need to pack beach toys, there were plenty in the garage. We even found a boogie board and taught my 8 year old son during the trip. The beds were very comfortable and you couldn't beat the view! All the linens were clean, soft and of the best quality. The laundry/sand room was ideal. I didn't have to pack any dirty clothes and that is the best when you are returning from a weeks vacation! The owners hospitality was everywhere throughout our stay from a welcome call to large resource binder and many notes throughout the home that helped us find and operate anything we could need.

Pacific City is small, but very charming. We were able to drive our car on the beach, straight to a tide pool! The Pelican Bar & Grill was just okay, but definitely something you'll want to try with their own brewed beer. Just call ahead if it's a weekend night and put your name in, we had to wait nearly an hour for a table. The marketplace is adequate and the espresso/coffee house was a pleasant surprise that I wish we'd found sooner. You must grab a taco or burrito from the little restaurant attached to the surf shop, great and inexpensive food, and perfect margaritas without all the fuss. Look for the walk up window.

We can't wait to go back! We've recommended the place to friends already, only concern is getting our preferred dates first!

Pacific City is on the north-central Oregon coast between Tillamook and Lincoln City. It is perfectly located to explore the sights and attractions along entire coast line, or travel inland to wine country. Developed later than most coastal towns, Pacific City has managed to retain its roots, identity and beauty while at the same time offering a selection of restaurants, galleries, and other amenities. At Pacific City you will truly encounter 'Oregon in Oregon'. Portland International airport is approximately a 2 hours' scenic drive from Pacific City.

Other Activities: kayaking
