Kiwanda Shores Cozy Beach Home Close to the Beach

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Beach House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

Pacific City Kiwanda Shores. Comfortable Beach Home in a gated community just a short 3 minute walk to the beach. Peace and quiet, close to everything but away from the crowds. The place to relax.

Pacific City is the best beach community on the Oregon Coast. There so much to do here. Take a stroll down to the cape and climb the sand dunes, explore the tide pools or beach comb and collect a sand dollar. Keep an eye to the sea and you are sure to spot a sea lion playing in the surf. There is fishing and crabbing nearby or you can charter a Dory boat and catch your dinner. Walk just out front and enjoy the sand. Bring a kite as there is usually a breeze. The most popular thing to do with the kids is to build a fire on the beach at night, listen to the surf, look for shooting stars and cook the best s'mores you'll ever have.

Main bedroom has a queen bed, walk-in closet, and bathroom with tub and shower. Second Bedroom has bunk beds, one twin bed and a bathroom with a shower. There is also a 32' LCD TV in the second bedroom with a DVD player and VCR. There is a nice collection of kids movies to choose from.

The house has a large front room with a sectional couch with 2 recliners and a pull out bed. There is a 42' LCD TV with 5 speaker surround sound and a Wii console. There is also an ipod dock hooked to the receiver. The entertainment system is great for watching DVD's and listening to music. However, THERE IS NO CABLE OR SATELLITE TV at the house. We do have a large and growing collection of DVD's. Visit our Facebook page for the latest list of movie titles.

The house was remodeled in 2011 with hardwood floors, skylight, paint, lighting, etc. The garage has chairs, sand toys, bicycles, an air hockey table and a surfboard for your use. On the south side of the house is an outdoor shower with hot/cold water.

There is parking for 3 cars. The washer and dryer are in the garage. Zonal heating keeps you warm when needed. The wood stove has a barrier for your safety. There is plenty of wood on the property for you to use.

This house is very kid friendly and safe. (Fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, GFI's. etc. Our home is Certified and inspected by Tillamook county as required by law. Do other houses you are considering meet this standard? Be sure to ask.)

This is a smoke-free home. There are NO PETS of any kind allowed.

To learn more about the house please visit our Facebook page. We hope you like the house.

Before you drive to the house be sure to check for traffic and road conditions.

LOCATION: We are located one block from the beach and sheltered by pine trees. (Please see map). Beach front homes are nice (and expensive) but when the wind starts to blow, the sand gets into everything and everyone. At our home you can enjoy the beach AND the peace and quiet of the coast.

We are on the west side of Cape Kiwanda drive, a road that gets busy in the summer, so there is no need to cross this road to get to the beach. Bring the bikes and explore the trails that lead to the river and the beach.

Do it all here or do the best thing of all; NOTHING!

Payment: Reserving the house requires a $250.00 security deposit with your payment plus a ridiculous fee that VRBO now charges you. The security deposit is fully refundable subject to the terms of the Rental Agreement. We accept personal checks (paper or e-check), PayPal and credit cards. Payment in full is due no later than 30 days prior to check-in. Cancel anytime up to 15 days prior to check in for a full refund. No refunds after that. Please contact me if you have any questions about reserving the house, payment, or any other concerns. Thank you.

About The Owner

We are a small family from Vancouver and have been a part of the Northwest for over 25 years. We love to surf, hike, shop for antiques and watch the sunset beside a campfire on the dunes.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Pacific City

We have been renting here for years. Kiwanda Shores has it all and when we found this house we jumped at the chance.

What makes this house unique

The nights are dark and quiet. You can get a great nights sleep here after a fun filled day spent exploring this special place.

It was the perfect house for taking our 2 young boys (4 and 6) to the beach for the 1st time.

I would reccomned this house to all of my friends and family and would like to try to stay here again.

Great little getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect little house for a weekend getaway! The entire experience was pleasant - from first reserving the house, to checking out! The house itself is super cute and feels very homey. We could not have asked for better weather at the end of November and spent every day at the beach.

Serendipity at the beach

  • 5 of 5

What a surprise to walk into such a delightful home away from home.....yes, I say that because every aspect of Sandcastle at the Beach had all the conveniences of home. It is clean and well equipped. The only thing missing for me was the cable TV so I could see the news at night.
