Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Want a great family vacation place? Our house is located directly in front of Haystack Rock in Pacific City, Kiwanda Shores development. Perfect Family house, remodeled recently. Sit on the deck and watch the kids surf, or get in the water in a few short steps. Nice private location with Sand Dune buffering one side of the house - wide open views of Kape Kiwanda and the giant dune on the other. Numerous activities in Pacific City, or no activity at all - it's an easy place to just relax on the deck and watch the ocean.

A few notes: No Smoking inside or near the house - we like clean smelling beach and ocean. Owned by Surfer and Snowboarder, so it's not your grandma's beach house - but not party central either! No shoes in the house at all - in keeping with Island customs of respect for household.

PLEASE NOTE! THIS HOUSE IS LOCATED ON THE OREGON COAST - WE CAN NOT GUARANTEE SUNNY WEATHER AND A CLEAR VIEW OF THE OCEAN!!! While our house IS located on the front row - with nothing but sand between you and the ocean - the winds can reach up to 100 mi/hr creating a berm in from of the house. Most of the time we are able to shovel the sand out of the way, making for a perfect view of the ocean from the house. But other times, we have storms moving in and out - especially in the winter months - pushing the sand, blocking the view.

A beautiful place - for having fun with family and friends!

About Shawn Steward

I bought this house many years ago, with a dream of having a little place to go with the family and learn to surf better. Still a crummy surfer - but if I ever get better, I'll walk right off the deck and be in some of the best surf in Oregon. I prefer renting to families and small groups.

Shawn Steward purchased this house in 1997

Why Shawn Steward chose Pacific City

Pacific City is a great little beach town that doesn't have that trashy tourist look that most of the other Oregon Beach towns have so lovingly acquired. A real fishing town, with seriously good beaches and waterways.

What makes this house unique

Crabbing, whale watching, beach walks, giant sand dune hikes, surfing, sand boarding (which never works as good as it should), Bingo at the senior center on Wednesday nights, good restaurants and coffee house.

Stormy weather beach getaway with friends

  • 5 of 5

Our family met friends and their kiddos at this beautiful beach house. The weather was temperamental but when it was too stormy to be outside we all enjoyed hanging out inside, playing games, cooking, watching movies and looking out at the ocean and haystack rock. I noticed the previous reviewer notes having an obscured view but ours was uninterrupted other than by heavy rain which was fun to watch from the warmth of the open plan interior of the home. We enjoyed our stay very much!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! So glad your family had a wonderful time at our beach house. As stated in my response to the previous guests who gave less than stellar reviews because of circumstances out of human control, the weather at the Oregon Coast is ever changing and can be extreme at times - especially in the winter months. We were able to have the sand shoveled between storms, and luckily the wind didn't move the sand in front of the house to block the views we normally have. So great you had a nice time - thanks again for your review.

Great views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this home. We loved being right on the beach and being able to see the ocean. The home was very comfortable. I wish it had been more obvious that there was no wifi at this home but all turned out fine I just didn't realize it until the last minute. The cafe in town was a great place for our teenagers to get their fix.

Not impressed and overpaid

  • 2 of 5

We were in town for a girls trip reunion, and were very much looking forward to sitting on the deck and enjoying the view with a glass of wine. Sadly, we were met with zero patio furniture so ended up spending time on towels or watching from inside. The house was not especially clean (crusted food in the waffle iron, leftover wrappers and crumbs in kitchen drawers & crab shells piled up on the back deck). The bunk beds were extremely loud and uncomfortable. For the price we were soarly disappointed. The view is exquisite, just unfortunate on the other factors.

Amazing Beach Front View Property

  • 5 of 5

Picture Perfect views from all the windows. Amazing setting up on a sand dune looking down on the beach and the haystack. Great kitchen and excellent kitchen utensils and pots and pans. We had a little incident with the barbecue and accidentally burned the surface of the deck. The owner was very gracious about this. We appreciate that. We highly recommend this very special property

Great little beach house

  • 5 of 5

I think the description is quite accurate. We had good weather and the kids loved playing in the sand. The dune does pile up a bit, but it didn't block our view and the kids had a neat area to play which was private and somewhat protected from the wind. I will stay there again.
