Shorepine Village House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms / Loft Bedroom (3 total bedrm) 2.5 Bath (Sleeps 4-6 adults, 2 child)

IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS ! Pacific City Oregon, Shorepine Village Beach House. Located on Barefoot Lane. Closest to the Beach, paths, and boardwalk in Shorepine Village. Totally furnished, and ready for you. The quiet location, the laid back atmosphere, friendly people ,surfing, fishing, winery, restaurants and tons of things to do, or just totally relax, read by a fireplace, or sit on the rear porch and take in the ocean air,and do nothing. Its up to you.


Pacific City Oregon is really one of the last truly non-over commercialized small towns in Oregon. We looked all up and down the Oregon Coast for several years and finally found Pacific City because its off the beaten path and just off of Highway 101. We immediately fell in love with it, and all our friends who have visited us agree, its really wonderful.

Our home has two full bedrooms plus a couch/bed loft . The master has a king size bed with walk in closet, and connected bathroom/toilet/vanity w/sinks, and shower.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Of course, the sand, beach and sunsets are second to none. Our house location is literally the closest to the shorepine boardwalk which is shown in my photos, but it takes you up and over the main sand dune/berm to the ocean and beach. Take your cheese and wine and watch the beautiful sunsets. We have bikes, kites, and other items you are welcome to use, and enjoy.

The second bedroom has a king size bed with bunk beds in it. The loft just between both bedrooms has a fold out couch/bed. The second full bathroom, with toilet/sinks/tub w/shower is also between the two bedrooms and loft. Very convenient !

The things to do in and around Pacific City is limitless. Driving the beautiful Oregon coast, visiting coastal lighthouses, visiting winery's throughout the wine country, the Famous Tillamook Cheese Factory, the famous Howard Hughes Spruce Goose and Evergreen Air Museum and even two casino's, all within 25 minutes from our home. The list goes on and on.

Feel free to enjoy a complimentary bottle of wine, red or white, and just kick back and watch the BEAUTIFUL SUNSETS OVER THE BEAUTIFUL PACIFIC OCEAN. We also just put in HIGH SPEED INTERNET 40+.FOR ALL YOU GAMERS AND FOLKS THAT HAVE TO 'BE CONNECTED'! It's just one of our ways to 'Thank You' for being our wonderful guests!

Please read our Reviews!, and our 'Guest Book' comments! (Located just before Beach house pictures) Come and be our guests- we'd love to have you!!!!!!!!! !

About Michael Murray

Retired. Three of our four daughters, and our grandchildren live in Oregon. They all love the Pacific City Ocean and Beach. You can drive your cars on the beach in Oregon. We have been coming to Oregon since the 1960's. THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE IT !!!!!!

Michael Murray purchased this house in 2002

Why Michael Murray chose Pacific City

Pacific City Oregon is the ideal location. Its only 1 1/2- 2 hours from PDX (Portland International Airport) /1/2-1 hour to Tillamook, Lincoln City, Salem, Wine country, Oregon. Its really a quaint little town. One gas station, one hardware store, one grocery store, one winery, but several little shops, several great restaurants, a pizza parlor, bars, and surf shops, and numerous outdoor activities available.

What makes this house unique

Our Barefoot bungalow is located at the end of a Cul-de-Sac, in Shorepine Village, so your not on a busy street, or have to cross any busy streets to get to the beach. Just walk from our beach house to the boardwalk and there it is, the beach and ocean. (50 yards)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mike and Cathie-

What a treat! My husband and I took our 2 young kiddos here on a much needed extended weekend stay! The weather was great! We had two full days on the beach, rode bikes, watched movies, played games, puzzles (went to the Evergreen Water park and Tillamook cheese factory on the way over) Your house is perfect for a family vacation. The basketball game in the garage was a big hit! Thank you so much for sharing your home with those of us looking to get away for a bit. The beach is our families "HAPPY PLACE", and I am glad we were able to add Pacific City to the list.

Lovely home, wonderful experience, great owners--near-5 star!

  • 4 of 5

Would give 4-1/2 stars if possible--we really appreciated all the really terrific features of this home and its equally terrific owners. We stayed at this clean, well-maintained home right after Labor Day; 2 couples and 1 infant. This home was all we hoped it to be, and more--large living area, great deck/porch, well equipped/well lighted kitchen, lots of extras (bikes, kites, beach pads and basketball--oh my!). Really responsive owners: I messaged them to ask about something minor, and soon after they were at the front door--they were staying nearby and wanted to make sure we had what we needed. Only 2 minor issues kept this from being full 5 star (after plenty of group discussion): 1) a better entertainment system in the living room. The current one is complicated with a smaller, old non-HD TV. (The bedrooms both have pretty standard smart TV setups--if only the living area had the same). And 2), hotter water in the master shower. It did not have hot water, only warm, could not get it hotter. It was okay but not what we would have liked.

As stated, these were very minor issues. This place is wonderful, it made our vacation special and we would love to go back again.

Great family friendly spot, close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Pacific City and the house was great. It is just a few hundred feet from the beach, a short walk to Pelican Brewery and was very clean upon arrival. The house was great for our three year old and our friend's six year old. The added extras in the garage (sand toys, kites, bikes were a great added bonus. I would highly recommend staying here.

Great location and really nice home. Mike communicated with us and we had everything we needed. We had our 8 year old granddaughter with us. There were so many toys and games for children. We would definitely rent the home again.

Thank you Mike

Great house, great location for a family fun retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house is very convenient, comfortable, well-maintained, well-equipped, and artfully decorated. It is located in a quiet community, with ready access to the long, wide-open, soft-sand beach, located just beyond a high dune. A well-maintained boardwalk extends to the crest of the dune, where there is a large overlook platform, providing a panoramic ocean view. From there, a steep descent down the soft-sand face of the dune leads to the gently-sloped, extensive sandy beach, which is ideal for family fun. However, returning to the boardwalk by climbing the steep, soft-sand face of the dune can be challenging. Thankfully, less than a mile away there is easy auto access and parking directly on the beach; even at this peak season, it was easy to find open space on the beach to set up a "base" for the day. Some nearby points of interest are the dunes and superb tide pools of Cape Kiwanda, the activities of the famous Dory Fishing Fleet, Haystack Rock, and Pelican Pub. The central location of Pacific City is ideal for day trips to other central Coast attractions. The owners are very accommodating, and readily available to address any issues which might arise during the stay. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone seeking a fun, family beach retreat.

Great, affordable home in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation here. Setting is beautiful, house and beds are comfortable, and beach is right over the dune. Having beach towels, kites, and bikes was the icing on the cake!

House was OK - Pacific City is Wonderful

  • 2 of 5

Our family stayed over the 4th of July Weekend. The home was average nice. Our biggest complaint was no BBQ. The owner stated that because of the beach grass they have not been allowed to have a BBQ in 4 years. There were 2 other families in our party with homes rented in the same subdivision & both had BBQ's? The downstairs TV was old & we could never figure out how to get the cable TV to work, but that is minor since we weren't there to watch TV. The master bedroom was very nice & private. We upset the owner (who was watching us the entire time across the street) because we had an afternoon where the other families visiting in Pacific City were over for dinner. Each family traditionally has dinner for the other families one night, this has never been a problem in the past couple of years that we have stayed in Pacific City for the 4th. I can assure you the home was treated very respectfully & most everyone was outside on the small deck & in the sand where we set up a corn hole game. The house was cleaner when we left then when we got there. The owner peaking in the grass & doing a constant head count was very unsettling & quite honestly made staying in this home very uncomfortable. We never exceeded the maximum guest actually staying & sleeping in the house. The parking in Shorepine is AWFUL - there is never any room in the overflow area either. I would not recommend this house for families, especially with families meeting with multiple vehicles.

Owner's Response: THE NIGHTMARE EVERY HOME OWNER RENTER DREADS ! Let’s just cut to the meat of this horrible situation… JENNIE A.VRBO/HOMEAWAy RESERVATION AND OUR SIGNED LEASE STATED THAT FOUR (4) ADULTS AND TWO (2) CHILDREN- SIX (6) TOTAL WOULD BE STAYING IN OUR HOME-AND THAT OUR HOME CAN ACCOMMODATE TWO AUTOS. I received two HOA calls while Jennie A stayed at our beach house. The first call, she had several cars parking illegally all over Shorepine Village streets. Went and asked them to move them. The Second call from HOA, was that now our guests were being loud and again parking where they shouldn’t. I went down to talk to her again and JENNIE A that made the reservation, signed the lease, wasn’t even at our beach house. The home had over 25-30 people, partying, drinking, everywhere. Upstairs, downstairs, out on the rear deck, in the front of the home……EVERYWHERE. I couldn’t believe it. It clearly states in our lease that the maximum person allowed in the home IS EIGHT (8). NOT 25-30 PEOPLE. And that our LEASE STATES that our home is a family orientated home, NOT A PARTY HOUSE. I was totally beside myself. Then when I entered my own home to talk to JENNIE or whoever was in charge, I had some guy give me crap about “what’s your problem dude”. So, without hesitation…..I told him and everyone what the problem was. I should have kicked all of them out immediately. I had every legal right to according to our lease. I told them most would have to leave immediately. I was kind enough to not throw the remaining people out cause I was assured by supposedly JENNIE A. mother that for the duration of their stay, they would “live by the rules” that they should have from the very start. I honestly couldn’t wait for them to leave. Wow……..WHAT A NIGHTMARE. So in conclusion, I believe everyone that reads this response, I would just say, that the rest of JENNIE A. comments and REVIEW should be taken in the same context as her truthfulness in reading, her acknowledgement of only six persons being in our home and her agreeing to, abiding by and signing our detailed lease which clearly states/outlines all house rules, regulations, parking, total amount of persons in the house….everything . JENNIE A. HAD ABSOLUTELY NO RESPECT FOR THE LEASE, MY HOME, OR ME AND MY WIFE.. I NEVER – NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM BEFORE,. SO- FUTURE GUESTS- YOU BE THE JUDGE ON WHO’S BEING TRUTHFUL- AND NOTICE THAT EVERY OTHER REVIEW GIVES US A FIVE STAR….WONDERFUL REVIEWS.
