Overview

Coastal Oregon House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Aaaah, you have arrived at the beach. Everyone is delighted – this looks just like the Beach House of your dreams.

Walking up the groomed gravel path, through native Oregon plantings of sea grass, pine and Rhododendron, you turn the key and are wrapped in native carvings, wood and river rock, lit by the soft light of ocean mist gleaming from a wall of windows. Soon, a roaring fire bounces light off glowing fir. You turn and look out upon a mountain rising from the sea on the north end of a panoramic ocean beach.

Wrapped in tasteful luxury you feel incredibly relaxed, yet oddly energized in a balanced harmony. You’ve been told this custom home has been designed with the principles of Feng Shui (which literally means “wind water”) . . . where better but at a beautiful beach?

The spacious rooms are all open to each other, so you drift into the well-appointed kitchen and mentally plan the dinner you’ll fix tomorrow night. Perhaps Dungeness crab you’ll catch in Nehalem Bay, from the boat you rented at the marina. Or is it clamming season? Maybe both.

The farm table in the dining area seats eight, so on your return from that wonderful little restaurant you found on Laneda St., everyone joins in a raucous game found next to the river rock fireplace.

The kids go downstairs to watch a music video and you settle into a comfy club chair next to the fire and discover a book you’ve been meaning to read. After the fifth chapter you yawn, stretch contentedly and tuck yourself into lush linens, a soft bed and the music of the sea.

Next morning, contented and rested, you shower and sneak out the front door, walk the few minutes to the beach and head south to town and the Manzanita News. There you have a bracing espresso, treat yourself to a pastry and the New York Times. On the beach walk home you run into your companions, and you all plan to rendezvous back at the house for a hike up Neahkanie Mountain. You’ve heard the view is spectacular.

Some of the kids and their uncle opt to go to the park to play basketball and maybe an impromptu tennis tournament – you’re secretly glad when the younger ones go with to play on the swings and play structure. They are promised a sand castle and kites and say they’ll have pizza for lunch.

After the hike, you head for the Bay and actually catch dinner in your crab traps. The Marina cooks and cleans them. After a quick stop at the grocers, you head to the house, the triumphant hunter-gatherers. The kids have been bike riding and are flopped in the living room, watching a movie.

Dinner is quick and easy (and delicious). After the cleanup, the dishwasher loaded, dessert is served around the fireplace as everyone recounts the highlights of the day. The kids are pooped, happy, bathed and in bed early.

Sipping a nice glass of wine, you relax on the window seat and plan your next visit. What good fortune to discover such comfort and ease. Perhaps it is the Feng Shui. You set your book aside and try to count the colors in the sunset.

Nothing short of delightful, beautiful location with ocean views and the sounds of the waves

  • 5 of 5

Had wanted to enjoy this property for a year or more but it's popularity means you had better book in advance! It is extremely well appointed, the kitchen has everything you could possibly need, the beds are very comfortable and the floor plan means each suite is very private, and they all face the ocean. A perfect home away from home, plan to come back someday! Thank you Diane for sharing!

Nice house, stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

Manzanita is a very cool, laid back seaside town. Just the right amount of shops, eateries and assorted establishments, but not a touristy vibe. And ideally situated within easy reach of other great spots up and down the coast.

The real prize is coming back to this amazing house. Open, spacious and nicely laid out, it's extremely comfortable and well stocked. But the ultimate joy is time spent on the patio and lawn. Highly enjoyable from dawn to midnight.

The whole package is a slice of paradise with a cherry on top!

Always the best!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3rd year was just as wonderful as our first. This has become our favorite vacation getaway and definitely worth the 5-hour drive! The ocean is the draw but the house is the star attraction. Beautiful, comfortable and so easy to share and still have your own space. We arrived to a freshly mowed lawn and beautifully manicured yard, and the smell of freshly chopped wood when we opened the door. Everything was perfect as usual---immaculately clean and beautifully maintained, generously stocked and always welcoming. Thank you!

Amazing Home! Relaxing and beautifully appointed!

  • 5 of 5

This home met all our needs. We especially enjoyed the wood burning fireplace - such ambiance on a rainy day. My teenage son loves chopping wood and has experience doing so. He helped to chop more wood for the shed and loved helping out with it. The short walk to the beach was nice and the view from the windows were great. The large window seat in the living room was a favorite of everyone! We would definitely rent this home again.

Happy and Calm Home

  • 5 of 5

I am hesitant to say how much I love this place because I want it to be available the next time I visit Manzanita. The house is absolutely beautiful, the furniture is comfortable, the beds have sleep-through-the night-with-sweet-dreams mattresses. The entire house is spotless and the kitchen well-stocked. And then there is the view….ahhhhh, so lovely. I want to be there right now watching the waves roll in. An extra bonus were the beautiful blooming trees in the front yard.

Pamper Yourself, You are Worth It

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was long overdue and we were exhausted. With precious little time off and away, we didn't want to take any chances that we would get another moldy house at the beach. We are so glad we stayed at this home. Not on the beach, just up the hill a couple of blocks. Terrific views, cozy window seats, group dining inside or out. The floor plan is great. With bedroom suites located at either end of the house, we did not hear a peep out of our friends with the crying baby during the night. The house was super clean, the kitchen was well-stocked. The vaulted ceilings and the wood-detailing throughout were inspiring. The hardscape and landscape is beautiful - even in February. The skylight over the bathtub allowed for stargazing during a night-time soak. Neahkahnie beach is lovely and an easy couple blocks down the hill. The massive central fireplace was warming and the woodshed is stocked. We loved it! It will be hard to stay anywhere else after this. Truly luxurious, yet simple and easy.
