About the property

Waterfront beach house.

This charming 1903, three level, tastefully restored, waterfront beach house, has panoramic views of Necanicum River, the Estuary, Tillamook Head and Pacific Ocean. Features include, private steps to the soft sand beach, original woodwork throughout the home and claw foot bath tub. Many modern upgrades compliment the quintessential vintage charm.

Create a moment.

Roomy enough for a family clambake (comfortably sleeps 8 in summer, 6 in winter), intimate enough for a romantic weekender, this well-appointed home offers great usable space for cooking, indoor and outdoor seating options for drinking and dining, and big fluffy beds to flop down in at the end of the night. Double fridge/freezer, dishwasher and laundry, coffee maker(s) and cable TV, extra soft linens and clean towels, big windows with lots of natural light (and candles tucked away for the evening hours), a working cook’s kitchen and a sloping grassy yard - this is a flexible, livable space that easily adapts to (and inspires) any adventure.

Relax at the coast.

Tilt your Adirondack chair toward the waves, or curl up with a book in the cozy sunroom. Enjoy private beach access - where fresh meets salt water at the intersection of the Necanicum River and the Pacific Ocean - with crabbing, kayaking, fishing, paddle boarding just steps from your door (all required kit for crabbing is awaiting your arrival - so grab it and go get ‘em!). The wine fridge and fully stocked honor bar is at your disposal (house rules: take a little, leave a little... it all balances out).

If you must work...

Unlimited, high-speed Wifi internet access provided.

Why Jodi Jack chose Seaside

It was love at first sight. It is a beach front home, overlooking the estuary and the Pacific Ocean. Add to that the home's historic beauty. We really have never seen anything this unique and beautiful.

The clamming season opens in early fall and generally lasts through early to mid-summer.

Razor clamming is closed on beaches south of Seaside, but is generally open on beaches from Seaside - North to the Columbia River.

The daily Razor Clam limit per person is the first 15 clams


Here in Seaside the seafood is fresh, but there's nothing fresher and more satisfying than catching your own dinner.

September through December are probably the best times to go crabbing, however, Dungeness crab can be caught starting in late July or August through February depending on the weather.


Fishing opportunities on the North Coast are plentiful.

The months of May through September yield the richest prospects.

If you prefer fishing local lakes and streams from your own boat or casting your line from the bank, there are plenty of locations to choose from. In Seaside, Quatat Marine Park and Cartwright Park along the Necanicum River offer boat ramp river access, and at Quatat, you can fish right on the river from the docks. Trout, steelhead and striped bass can all be caught along the Necanicum.


Surfing is an very popular sport on the Oregon Coast. At the Cove in Seaside, surfers can be found year-round, practically all day, every day. Seaside is also home to two surf shops that sell and rent boards, wetsuits, and other accessories.


The North Coast is home to some of the best waterways for kayaking and canoeing. From the open ocean and rivers to the shallow picturesque inlets and bays, there are boating opportunities for all skill levels. Most of the year, kayaks and canoes are available from the local recreation rental shops.


The area in and around Seaside is home to several beautiful public golf courses.

Tennis and other Sports

In Seaside, public tennis courts are located at Broadway Park and Seaside High School. Basketball hoops are located at most of the local parks. Broadway park, part of the Sunset Empire Park & Recreation District, has a skate park, area for baseball & soccer, basketball hoops, playground equipment and indoor public swimming pools.

Wonderful vintage beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We felt right at home in this charming vintage beach house. Well stocked kitchen--French press, espresso maker!! Our family had a very relaxing time reading on the sun porch, eating great seafood and enjoying beach campfires.

Thank you for sharing your house with us :)

Great place for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast! The house is located just steps from the beach, and the sun room was delightful in the late after and evening. The property was well stocked with supplies and the kitchen had everything we needed during our stay. Rooms were clean and uncluttered when we arrived. The crab trap was appreciated and put to frequent use (the crabbing was awesome!). It also located close to shopping, in case we needed anything. I highly recommend this location and hope to return next year.

Clapboard, beachside house with perfectly lovely views of ocean and birds.

  • 5 of 5

Our annual summer trip took us to Oregon this year. We stayed in a VRBO home in Newberg for 4 days and in Seaside for 6. The 6 of us adults were very comfortable and loved coffee in the sun room in the morning and dinners in dining room. We slept with windows open which is definitely not a Florida experiment in the summer! Things we did-walked to the beach through driftwood; tried to capture crabs which was not as easy as we had hoped as all were females which you cannot keep but we have hilarious stories to tell friends!, huge refrigerator and lots of kitchen appliances; drove to nearby cities and local hikes; favorite place was Manzanita; easy drive back to Portland airport. The house is as pictured and was built In 1905. If you don't like creaky floors, only one shower downstairs and small bedrooms this would not be a home for you. We loved every part of the house and it's history. We did wish the fireplaces could have been used. VRBO is a great site and our host was quick to assist us if we needed her. Thank you for a truly lovely visit.

This historical house on the estuary was exactly what we wanted and plenty of charm!

  • 5 of 5

If you love the coziness and quirkiness of older homes, this is for you! I called it my “Summer of ‘42” (movie) house. I found myself wondering about the people who may have lived here at one time and I think it has always been a happy house. You are surrounded with so many fun things from books to sand dollars lined up on the outside window ledge of the sunroom to a clothes line complete with clothespins! There is so much character and charm in this house. I felt right at home from the minute we walked in. The kitchen has absolutely everything you could possibly need or want. And YES! You really can catch crab just a little walk from the house! We were lucky enough to see a herd of deer run right past the house early one morning on our little beach on the estuary! There were at least 50-60 of them – quite a site! Also saw blue heron. As you can probably tell, we loved this house and the estuary. I think I could have easily spent a month there! AND, with all of the fun, whimsical things that were in the house, it was sparkling clean! Hope you love it as much as we did. Where do you think the wooden stove must have been? Who put the time into the wonderful ceiling in the living room and dining room? If you love to dream and romance a little bit about the past you will love this house!
