About the property

Beautiful, light and bright home located in the gated Kiwanda Shore community. Just a 3 minute walk to deeded beach access where surfing, beach strolls and evening camp fires await you.

Very open floor plan with big windows that face west and welcome the evening sun. Two decks for lounging, one faces the hills the other extends the downstairs to the outside..

All of the amenities of home, including high speed internet (WIFI), flat screen with Chromecast only (cast from your computer), washer/dryer, expanded cable, 2 TV’s and DVDs for family movies and a fully tooled kitchen.

Garage turned to playroom complete with game table, video and board games. Bikes, boogie boards, skim boards, sand toys, kites . . . you know . . . lots of beach stuff!

Very short 3-minute walk to wide open beach. 10-minute beach walk to some of the best beer in Oregon at the Pelican Pub or the Cape Kiwanda dunes.

Bike trails throughout! Pacific City is known for it's excellent surfing, fishing, whale watching, hiking/beach walks and award winning Pelican Brewery.

Many awesome mountain trails for hiking or running are within 20 minutes.

This has been our second home for 14+ years so is very livable. In fact, you may not want to leave! Did I mention the deer come to our door for apples and pears.

Pacific City is an easy 1:40 hour drive from Portland. It remains a quiet unspoiled beach town for those looking for a special get-a-way or just a great fun, safe place to take the family.

About Terry Sullivan

We built this 1500 sq. ft. Chalet style home in 2002. Having rented from others for years, we custom designed a home with the best of what we had seen. A very open, light and airy home that stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter. With one of Oregon's best surfing beaches just a 3 minute walk away and ample hiking, fishing, boating and biking surrounding this gated community, we have grown to love our family time spent at the beach. Upon entering our home, you can feel your pulse slow as you quickly transition to 'vacation time.' We are pleased to share our stress reducing home with you in this sleepy little beach town.

Terry Sullivan purchased this house in 2002

Why Terry Sullivan chose Kiwanda Shores

It is off the beaten path, has multiple opportunities for recreation, quality restaurants and is truly a place for respite.

What makes this house unique

Very short walk to beach. Light and open floor plan allows for comfortable family gatherings. Only noise you hear is the ocean!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our multi-generational family enjoyed spending Thanksgiving at your house. Storms, rain, sunshine and clouds, ohh don't forget the wind. Enjoyed all the weather. We even did the puzzle.Ir

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay. Beds are very comfortable, lots of things to entertain you are provided- board games, video game, toys for kids, DVD collection, magazines etc. Kitchen had everything we needed. Very short walk to the beach and a ten minute walk to cape Kiwanda for hiking and beautiful views.

Great home for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The open and bright living room, dining room and kitchen provide a great space to relax, connect, and celebrate. This home is impeccably kept and went beyond our expectations. Central location makes walks to restaurants or the beach easy. Fantastic home.

Light and Bright Home was perfect

  • 5 of 5

The Sullivan's home is perfect for couples. We all had our own space, but really enjoyed the open living space where we could spend group time. All the kitchen and living essentials are provided. Watched the long board competition, took beach walks and enjoyed quality beer at a couple of local pubs. Pacific City is a vibrant beach town off the beaten path with plenty to keep us entertained. Can't wait to return and enjoy this lovely home again.

Excellent Home and Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at Terry and Cindy's Pacific City home. The house is very spacious and had a surprise bonus room in the garage that would be great for kids hanging out separate from adults. We were a group of high school buddies there for fishing so the access to Haystack Rock was a two minute drive, and it's only a one minute walk to the beach and an easy stroll to the big dune to work off great Pacific City food. Terry and Cindy were very easy to reach and provided clear and quick answers to all of our questions. We've rented nice homes in Pacific City before but the Sullivan's home is our top choice to return to in the future. Great stay!

Beautiful and comfortable house close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This house in Kiwanda Shores is awesome with plenty of space to stretch out (family of 5), fully equipped kitchen, sufficient linens and laundry facility all just a block from the beach. We really enjoyed staying here!

Owner's Response: Thank you Sally! We are so happy you enjoyed our home. We love going there as well (wish it was more often!) and do our best to keep it as a second home vs. just another rental. Come back soon! The Sullivans
