Not as close as it appears
There are lots of great reviews for this house, but we were very disappointed, especially considering the price we paid - there were other options at the same price point that would have been much better. The house is quite a ways from the beach (the sunset photo is misleading and has been zoomed a lot). It is actually on the east side of Hwy 101 and the beach view is limited. You can hear the surf, but the highway is louder. The house itself is small and feels cramped inside. I cant imagine how it could be comfortable for more than 4 people. The spiral stairs are difficult and I would guess a hazard for many people. The main bedroom is open to the main level, so no privacy. The upstairs bathroom (where the 2 bedrooms are)_does not have a shower and the tub is too small for an adult. The kitchen, though well equipped, is very tight. Many of the finishes throughout are jerry-rigged and ill-fitting. On the positive side, the house was clean and the towels and bedding were good. The hot tub worked as expected.
This was a beautiful property with just the right amount of quiet and close proximity to on going’s! We had the most wonderful vacation and enjoyed every night out on the decks. Our two year old bought the trail walk to the water was the best part! The kitchen was better stocked than my own and made eating in a few nights, easy and most enjoyable! If you haven’t been before, this area of the world is simply magical. Thank you!
If you want to relax and be able to see and hear the ocean then this is the place for you.
We very much enjoyed our stay here and would stay again if we were ever in the area. Everything in their ad is true: ocean views(!!), quiet, unique with beach access. The view from both second story rooms was simply perfect and the hot tub was excellent after a day a way hiking. Perfect ending to a day. There are just two things that I would point out that other people might have an issue with: There is no cell service at the house with ATT. With the wifi, you are able to imessage and facetime, but calling does not work. That was not an issue for me, but I do know that some people might want to be a little more connected. And the stairs are steep. We ended up leaving our luggage on the lower level because I did not trust myself to get it up and down the stairs. Neither of these issues would be enough to stop me from staying here again as this place was simply perfect otherwise. I just like to include things I think other people might care about. :) I would also like to say how pretty this neighborhood is and how well cared for it seems. The path to the beach was well maintained and the little bridges that you crossed were in perfect condition. The neighborhood itself is quiet, which is a plus in my opinion. If you want to relax and be able to see and hear the ocean then this is the place for you.
Fun family weekend getaway
Stayed at the Arch Cape home for Easter weekend with our 9, 6 and 4 year old. Walk down the path to the beach was fast and fun. Beach was relatively secluded so it felt like our own. Comfortable beds, great home for our Easter weekend.
Perfect for a family!
Our family of 4 (2 kids, 7 and 10, and us parents!) fit perfectly and couldn't have asked for more! The location was great, and it was clean and very well stocked with anything one would need in a kitchen. The direct-TV was awesome to have and the hot-tub views were lovely - and we truly enjoyed the privacy! Can't wait to go back.
Our family loves the Mermaid House!
We loved our second stay here! The beds are super comfortable. We left the bedroom sliding glass door open at night and fell asleep to the ocean sounds...
hope we can come back soon for another peaceful visit!!
The Arch cape beach offers incredible hikes with tidepools and unique geographic formations. When the tide is out, one can often hike on the beach North around hug point all the way to cannon beach.
