Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Coastal Oregon - Rivendell

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Our place is a charming beach house with lots of wood features: oak floors, pine panelling and cedar cathedral ceilings with skylights. There are two private decks separated by a gazebo with a large spa/hot tub that can easily accommodate six people. The side deck has patio furniture and a new grill perfect for barbecue.

The private, master bedroom has high ceilings and a new, king sized bed with new, excellent mattress and linens, and an adjoining (external) full bathroom. The second and third bedrooms are on the opposite side of the great room/dining room, making it easy for two families to share the house. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed with an Englander mattress (and internal bathroom) and the third bedroom has a trundle bed (two singles) each with a very comfortable mattress. Both the second and third bedrooms face out to the forest.

The house is located at the south end of Manzanita, a quiet residential town with a few great restaurants and shops. We are only half block from one of the most spectacular secluded beaches on Oregon's North Coast. It is bordered on one end by Neahakanie Mountain and on the other by a State Park. The beach ends in a spit and Neahkannie Bay which creates a whole different water landscape than the mighty Pacific Ocean. On the much quieter bay, there is crabbing, seal watching and kayaking.

The house is a 15 minute walk (beach or street) from the town of Manzanita, which is very much in the public eye these days. In 2005, there were articles in Sunset and Coastal Living about this sweet fun town.

Very comfortable house near the beach

  • 5 of 5

First, the owner was great--I accidentally chose the wrong check in day and we showed up a day earlier than expected, and he was able to quickly contact the housekeeper to get us in early. The house is only 4 houses from the beach (or from the trail over the small dunes that lead to the big wide beach, anyway) on a quiet dead end street. It's pretty cool to be able to walk on the beach to town. The beach is HUGE. It's also very well located if you want to drive and visit the great beaches at Ecola State Park or Cannon Beach. The house is very comfortable and well stocked. There are books, puzzles and games, and the docking station was great--we could then listed to baseball games or NPR via our phone. The king bed was nice and the couch was very comfortable. The wifi worked well. The owner has a binder full of advice for restaurants, beaches, etc. I would stay again.

Great location; Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a great get-away for me, my 20 month only and my parents. The layout was perfect and comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped and there were plenty of games and jig-saw puzzles to keep us all entertained. The beach is very close and it's about a 15 min walk to town. There were great beach chairs and toys. The beds were amazing and we all slept like babies.

Great summer house

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely contented week at this comfortable beach house about 5 minutes from Manzanita Beach. You can hear the sound of the waves crashing from your bedroom window. The house is comfortable and well designed for a cottage. It is about a 15 minute walk into the town. You can walk along the beach or on the road. The beach is spectacular and the town is charming. The owner's maroon binder is full of great advice. Kelly's Marina is not to be missed if you like fresh seafood. We would definitely stay in the home again.

The most accomodating owner ever!

  • 5 of 5

This home's owner is very concerned about his home and the people who rent it. The house is extremely well equipped and easy to be in. It has great amenities and was very comfortable. The owner was very apologetic because the hot tub was not working and could not be fixed during our stay. He made way more than a generous allowance for this, which shows just how much he truly cares. We hope to return again sometime. Thank you.

Excellent Manzanita Beach house

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 adults and a 20 month old ball of energy. Having two enclosed patio/decks and a jacuzzi was great for daily outdoor playing. The house worked perfectly. Its easy walk to the beach was perfect for taking the young one to dig in the sand and swim. The easy access to town and its parks was great for shopping and eating. The house was well stocked and worked for easily preparing meals. Well worth a visit!

Gorgeous Beach House 1/2 Block for Manzanita Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with all of the extras that came with the house, close to beach, hot tub, lots of sleeping area, close to town. We didn't have to bring anything except food. We put the key in the door and everything was there for us to enjoy our stay.
