The secluded beach offers a dramatic playground for exploring tide pools full of sea life, surfing, boogie boarding, searching for seashell treasures, and building sandcastles. The stream that empties into the ocean nearby provides a sheltered setting for little ones to play in the sand and water.

Great Place Great Location
The house is very cozy, the location perfect for what we were looking for, overall a GREAT experience.
had a lovely time
sweet bungalow had a fun time with my family
After a particularly difficult year, my family decided to head to the beach for low key Thanksgiving. We lucked out with great weather and a nice place to stay. Location was perfect...a quick walk down to the beach and a short drive to restaurants and shops. The upstairs was perfect for entertaining our kiddo, though we could hear any movement through the floors.
All and all, a great vacation spot.
Wonderful 2nd Reunion By Starfish
This was the 2nd family reunion we held in the same house, Beach Pines Bungalow. Starfish Rentals makes the reservation process easy, and they are wonderfully responsive to all our questions. Due to their recommendations we had a lunch we'll always remember in Cannnon Beach, and we ADORE the house we stay in!
Perfect Beach House
We loved our stay at Beach Pines Bungalow! The house is very cozy and comfortable, and has everything one could need. It has great views (just like the photos) and it is a short walk to the beach. There were many nice touches including free and clear laundry detergent - who thinks of that?! Great house for family or friends. Nannette from Starfish was wonderful and answered all of our questions. Highly recommend!
Fourth of July in Arch Cape
We had a wonderful time. The house location was wonderful and the beach was great. The one bathroom with five adults and two children was not ideal. Our family will need two plus bathrooms in the future. However Arch Cape was a wonderful place and we will defiantly return in the future.
12 members of our family, ranging in age from 10 to 75, flew into Portland from Chicago, Denver, and Vancouver, BC for a family reunion. Five of us stayed at Beach Pines Cottage and the remaining seven stayed at the Shutterbug Cottage. We were only one block from each other, so lots of “running back-and-forth“ took place. We were 1-1/2 blocks from the beach and had many bonfires down there at night, toasting marshmallows. This cottage was completely adorable, well stocked with games, puzzles and books, and a super cute deck with a rattan swing and a fire pit. The two houses were just perfect for a really large family that did not want to be overcrowded in one home.
Loved the beach house
Great time. House had everything we needed. I really appreciate the immediate help we received from Nanette on getting in to the place, even though I forgot to call her earlier and let her know what time we would be arriving. We were a little cramped with only one bathroom (8 of us)and it was my fault for not thinking about that earlier. If we didn't rent again it would be because of that one thing. Also the light in the bathroom didn't stay on. We didn't figure out to turn on the lights above the sink until the second day, so I took a shower in the dark the first night. But those were just minor things and we enjoyed playing the games and watching a couple of the videos that were available. We also did most of our dining at the beach house and found it very well stocked with all the kitchen gear that we needed. We appreciated that there were some spices and other very basic staples in the cupboards. We had a great time! Thanks
Great way to enjoy the Oregon Coast
A short walk to an amazing beach, easy drive up to Cannon Beach and a lovely view of the coast from the deck. Near the highway but quiet at night. Very cute house, and had great help from the caretaker after a last-minute booking.
Beach Pines Stay
The cottage was lovely and had everything you could need.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!
What a great place. Had the feel of the coast from my childhood. Felt right at home the second we walked in. So close to the beach, it made for a great walk. Can't wait to go back to the same house.
Beach Pines Bungalow
We had a good experience at Beach Pines Bungalow.. Very cozy cottage. Loved the floors, and enjoyed the fireplace. Since warm weather was very scarce, it was nice to have an evening fire to keep it warm., and cozy. Great view of the ocean, esp from the deck.
Manager Response: Thank you for the positive review! Total guest satisfaction is our top priority at Starfish Vacation Rentals and your review helps us to know we're achieving our goals.
Super cute, dog friendly, and beach access. What more do you need
We had a fantastic experience at the Beach Bungalow. The house itself is cute and tidy. Four adults and multiple dogs were more than comfortable in the space. We barely used the upstairs except for a few rousing games of fooseball—yes, there’s a fooseball table, though the space would be perfect for families with kids.
The location was exactly what we were looking for. Beach access is probably a four or five minute walk from the front door, and it’s well worth it for the breathtaking oceanfront view. And you have a view of the ocean from various windows as well as the back deck, which unfortunately we didn’t use much due to the weather. The Bungalow is situated close to a couple of great parks that are perfect for an afternoon stroll, especially with dogs. It’s far enough from the main Canon Beach area that you feel isolated, but also only eight or ten minutes from restaurants, bars, and shopping if you’re so inclined.
Manager Response: Thank you for the fantastic review! Beach Pines Bungalow is a unique home with incredible views, and we are delighted that it suited your group so perfectly.
Cozy all-season vacation bungalow
We’ve now visited this rental twice, in different times of the year. It’s extremely comfortable regardless of the weather. It’s nicely decorated and has great beds and a good shower. The kitchen has more than we’ve ever needed and we do cook and eat in. And the Starfish staff couldn’t be more pleasant to work with. It’s great in every way! Thank you for the welcome treats!!
Best Thanksgiving Ever
This house is next door to another we rented. The proximity was wonderful as our two houses were around the corner from one my siblings rented. We love this area and have been coming to the Cannon Beach/Arch Cape area for decades.
Beach Pines Bungalow
This was the perfect house for my family to enjoy a getaway. 2 min walk to the beach, all modern amenities and the couple questions we had were answered very very quickly.
A quaint beach getaway
This little beach cottage had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Although we were there during the off season, the fireplace and movies allowed us to settle in after a full day of hiking. The beds were extremely comfortable and equipped with extra bedding for the cool evenings. We will definitely be back.
Best beach hangout
We brought family and friends with us to Arch Cape this year. The Beach Pines Bungalow was the perfect setting. The house is the right size for a small group, very comfortable and well maintained. Really liked the deck, great place to relax and be social. We will be back for sure!
Reasonable cozy bungalow with everything you need.
This was the perfect home for a ladies get together: it was clean, comfortable, good beds, and close to beach, trails, and shopping. All instructions were good and communication was excellent. We had the best time and would come back.
A time to Cherish
The House was comfortable, cute, functional, immaculate. View was breathtaking. Walk to the beach short easy convenient. Only negative was you could here traffic on the 101.
We Love Beach Pines Bungalow
We have come to Beach Pines Bungalow twice, and we love it! We bring our 3 children, who love staying in the upstairs room where they have their own TV and comfy beds. The kitchen is stocked with all we need to prepare delicious meals, the fireplace is cozy and the living room table is perfect for playing games. We will probably be back!
Manager Response: Thank you very much for your review and your kind words about your stay. We are happy to hear your stay with Starfish Vacation Rentals provided everything you needed for your visit and was comfortable for both adult and children and provided the space for memorable family experiences. We look forward to your next stay with us.
Close and easy walk to the beach
Great house with a great deck. Kitchen a bit small and upstairs actually a finished attic. A better space for kids than adults. Overall a great house. Beds were comfortable.
A Breath of Beach Air/ Amazing stay!!!
I would def stay here again very clean, private and a great get away with amazing amenities and supply stock, less the one bath. It was short however the laundry detergent /not a big deal. Otherwise very appealing!!
Manager Response: We appreciate your compliments and do hope you will come back for another stay at Beach Pines Bungalow. Our homes are always well-supplied with all the soaps and paper goods, including laundry detergent. It is in a large bucket in the laundry closet, and perhaps was missed. We always encourage our guests to let us know immediately if anything is needed since service is our priority. Thanks again for staying with us!
Beach Pines Bungalow
Two adults and their two dogs had a wonderful time here. The bungalow is tastefully decorated with a beautiful color scheme. Great books and interesting things to look at, and a very useful tide clock! The beds were very comfortable as were the living room chairs and couch. The kitchen had everything we needed, and then some. Weather wasn’t good enough for using it, but the deck looks lovely. Only thing that could use a little attention is the outside of the house which must be hard to keep perfect with the salt air - love the old, wind swept, pines in the front!
Manager Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a detailed review of your experience at our Beach Pines Bungalow property. The owner of this classic beach cottage loves to delight his guests with local art and unique finds and regularly does maintenance to keep his home in great shape. I'm sure exterior paint is in his near future plans. The deck is a recent wonderful addition, and we hope you'll return during the dryer season to try out the ocean view it provides! - Starfish Vacation Rentals
Wonderful Stay near Cannon Beach
The house was in a great, quiet location. It was an easy drive to everything in Cannon Beach. The house was clean and a perfect size for our family of 4 (plus dog). We would definitely stay here again!
Beach Pines Bungalow was a great home in a wonderful location. The deck is just fantastic any time of day. Beach access was so easy. Walked to the beach two or three times a day. AND it is a great beach. The home is comfortable and we spent hours each evening drinking wine and playing games. Kitchen is well equipped. Although one bathroom, we had tons of towels and that shower is great. Beds were very comfortable and the sound coming in from the ocean was perfect. Very happy with our time at Beach Pines Bungalow. Thank you for sharing your home
We enjoyed our time at Beach Pines Bungalow. Close proximity to Manzanita and Cannon Beach a plus.
Everything was as described, but some notes: neighbors porch is directly next to/same level so not much privacy, nearby beaches were not sand - only rocks (at least in the winter), and one bedroom stayed a little cold.
Manager Response: We're glad you and your sisters enjoyed your stay at Beach Pines Bungalow. The beach at Arch Cape is a 2 mile stretch of coastline and has a band of small rocks to cross before you arrive at the sand. In the winter, the sand is exposed mainly at low tide, so you need to time your walks for low tide. Many people enjoy the beach at Arch Cape for it's seclusion and privacy relative to nearby beaches. The raised deck is new - happily it provides an ocean view now from the yard. Plants have been planted on the east side which will soon grow up to provide privacy from the neighboring property. We do provide a space heater for the upstairs room that runs cold in the winter. Thanks again for staying with us.
Beach Pines Bungalow
Wonderful experience, everything was clean. The kitchen was well stocked. My kids loved the upstairs bonus room. The ocean view from the deck is superb!
Great beach property
Super cute well appointed home.
Nice Place in Arch Cape
It's a nice place. We'd never stayed outside of Cannon Beach before and not sure we would again. Depends on what you're looking for. The pictures make it look bigger and closer to the water than it is. The bathroom was much smaller than anticipated.
This house was cozy, spacious enough for everyone and comfortable when we all gathered in the common space. I LOVE all of the hooks as any true beach home should have plenty of space for leashes, keys, coats, vests, jackets etc.
The first few days were super wet and cold. We found awesome puzzles and games that were perfect! The movie selection is great too - especially if watched while also enjoying a warm fire in the fire place.
The bathroom is so clean and the shower is really nice!
Overall good time
Everyone enjoyed their time at the beach for Thanksgiving
Life at the beach
This was a first experience with this form of vacation stay. Great spot to kick back and relax. Enjoyed the patio with BBQ and lovely gas fire table. Inside the home was very cute and had all amenities needed to basically move in and carry on. Would head here again
This house had everything we needed, and more than expected. Location was wonderful with easy beach access. While not "on the beach", we could watch the surf roll in from the five-star deck. The fact it was dog friendly was a gift that should be used by not abused by other guests. Will book it again if available next time.
Great Family Getaway
The house was cozy but comfortable our whole family and our dogs. The ocean views are very nice, and it's surprisingly quiet. Beach access was easy, and the steps and path are very easy to navigate. The fireplace and TV made indoor time really pleasant, and the kitchen, though quite small, was very well equipped. The grill and obviously new deck were great too. The house is clearly not new but has been well maintained.
My stay at the Beach Pines Bungalow was exactly as advertised and a relaxing stay on the coast. The check in process was extremely easy, and I never had a problem getting a hold of someone. I definitely recommend the property.
Perfect home base for the coast
This house was perfect for a family of four. We explored up and down the coast and loved coming back to this bungalow after every adventure. Very cozy home, great location!
My husband and I spent a relaxing weekend in this cozy bungalow. It is a great size for a couple or small family/group. Nice location in a residential neighborhood and not too far from towns to the north and south for restaurants, shops, etc. Very clean. Not fancy/modern, but had everything we needed!
Another great stay at Beach Pines Bungalow
We had a lovely four nights at Beach Pines Bungalow. This is our second stay at this property and it felt like home away from home. Well appointed with all the amenities plus extras like spices we may have forgotten as well as a welcome packet including coffee, tea, and popcorn.. it's a nice touch. Arch Cape has a nice quiet beach and a short drive to Cannon Beach and/or Manzanita for shopping or dining out. We love this quaint property and the location. We will definitely be returning.
Two couples and three kids all enjoyed this house during a recent stay. The house is well cared for, I had all the kitchen utensils I needed, and it really is a short walk to the beach. The local beach is a quiet escape away from the crowds at Canon Beach. Bonus: Strong Wi-Fi.
visit to the damp side of Oregon
Arrived to a spotless, warm dry house. Very well taken care of for an older house. It lists toward the sea especially in the kitchen and upstairs, but adjustments were made. Very well appointed kitchen. All the utensils one needed. Great to sit at the table and watch the Blue Pacific. Not far to good beach access. Took walks even in the rain. The cable went out one night, but we read more and listened to music and the storm outside. Nice place. Would recommend it.
Arch Cape good value house
Everything was fine except system for opening door. Would rather have a key.
Manager Response: Thank you for staying with us again this summer! We always enjoy having your family stay. I am so sorry the prior guest had inadvertently disabled the communication hub for the electronic lock. Glad we were able to get it re-enabled right of our guests love not having a key to keep track of!!
Another wonderful stay at Beach Pines Bungalow
We returned to Beach Pines Bungalow for a week at the beach and had another wonderful stay. The house is perfect - close to the beach, well equipped kitchen and with very comfortable beds and very professionally managed (we loved the little bag of welcome ocean-themed local chocolates). Only deviation from my overall 5 star rating: there were long white dog hairs on the carpets (not lots but enough that we found them on our clothes/belongings) - which I assume comes with a "pet-friendly" home and will be very hard to avoid if pets are welcome.
Our boys LOVED the foosball table and having so much space in the attic. Thank you for sharing your house - we will be back!
Diemuth E P.
Felt right at home!
We absolutely loved this bungalow. It's private yet you can see the sunset and be on the beach in a 3-minute walk. It's spacious and comfortable. We appreciated the well-equipped kitchen since we are all cooks! And I especially enjoyed the bookshelf which had some of my favorite authors, so I felt completely at home! Washer & dryer were a big plus too. The owners obviously take good care of this place--it's clean and well maintained. If you want a homey feel and lots of beach in a quiet residential neighborhood, this is it. The hydrangeas are icing on the cake!
Arch Cape Getaway
We had a lovely time - no issues at all!
Perfect Weekend Retreat!!
This house was perfect for your girls weekend. The beds were amazing, the kitchen was fully stocked for a anyone who enjoys cooking, good knives, good cookware!!! Quiet neighborhood, close to beach, great views! This house felt like a home!
I enjoyed this very comfortable bungalow with beautiful landscaping. It was located in a lovely neighborhood. Loved the high speed internet connection. I especially loved watching the ocean waves from the dining table. The beach path is just around the corner and I enjoyed lovely walks.
Beach Pines Bungalow
This is a charming place and makes you feel you are at home. I love the yard.
Cozy get away
We had a great time. House was comfortable, plenty of space--there were 4 of us sisters. Great shower!! Cooked several meals, good kitchen. Just a short walk to the beach. Love being just a bit out of the crowds, yet so close to Cannon Beach and Manzanita.
Perfect Spot for R&R
I stayed at the bungalow for a week of remote working, peace and solitude. It was the ideal situation. The house itself is comfortable, inviting and well-equipped. The garden is exquisite. And the location is spectacular, with that gorgeous open beach that my two dogs made full use of. Danna was very responsive too, when I had a silly little problem, and I love the Starfish app. I'll be seeing you again!
We loved the location, close enough to Cannon, yet very quiet. The fireplace was lovely, last rental place we stayed at had a gas fireplace that was also nice and more convienant to take the chill away in the cool mornings. Furnishings were adequate, could use some updating.
True Relaxation on the Oregon Coast
In Arch Cape you are close to everything or nothing! An excellent holiday to enjoy family and friends while relaxing. The house was warm, charming and equipped with everything you will ever need. This is what summer is!
Beach Cottage Charmer
My family had a lovely nine day holiday in this precious cottage. Location was perfect to Cannon Beach and Manzanita as well as our own beach. We had all the supplies we needed and the kitchen was well stocked with all our cooking needs. There were lots of games for the children. We will be back. The wonderful wood fireplace added a special treat. Thanks for sharing this great cottage.
2015 Arch Cape Bungalow
Met our needs marvelously. It was clean and neat, and we look forward to returning for first week of August, 2016.
A couple items to note: The toilet seat won't stay secure, and we ran out of kitchen garbage bags. How's that for extremely minor inconveniences?
We truly had an excellent time, and greatly anticipate returning next year.
Tim and Marcia J.
Short vacation with 4 children 1 daughter 1grandma and 2 dogs
Everything was very clean and comfortable for all.Lots of toys for all ages.We had a great time!
Comfy and Cozy
We really enjoyed the comfy and cozy little house. The location is great!! The upstairs is a grandkids dream :) The only thing we could of wanted was a fire pit. The staff at Starfish are very professional and attentive. We will stay there again :)
Family time in April
We loved the loacation and proxitmity to the beach! The beached masses of blue jellyfish were the only 'complaint'-- which is no reflection on the propery!
Had a blast at Beach Pines Bungalow!
We came up for a weekend stay with our two dogs, our daughter and her cousin, and our selves. The house was warm and inviting, with a lot of thoughtful decor and interesting nooks and cabinets that made the house fun to explore. We loved the artwork! The kids had a blast in the upstairs room, and the adults also had a blast playing Foosball tournaments in teams, solos and (of course) Kids versus Adults. The walk to the beach was quick and easy, and people in the area were all friendly. We had never stayed in Arch Cape before, and really fell in love with it! The kitchen was great and had everything we needed. We even forgot to pack coffee, but lucky for us, there was a bag of Thundermuck Coffee, roasted in Astoria, left for us by Starfish Rentals. The property is beautiful, and we loved all the lush, full greenery in the front and back yard. When we decided to get a meal out, we opted for to-go from Mo's, which is a coast tradition for us, and it was such a quick trip up to Cannon Beach for that.
well stocked, pleasant, comfortable. walls need a coat of paint or cleaning here and there to have more of a fresh/clean feel over all.
Beach Pines Bungalow
This cottage was delightful. As many other reviewers have noted, it was immaculate and well-equipped. Close proximity to the beach and a short drive to Cannon Beach. The only thing negative that I can think of is that the bathroom fan was too noisy to use.
Very, very happy!
This house was excellent for our family of 5. We have 3 young boys and there was plenty of room for all of them to sleep in beds upstairs and lots of fun movies for them to watch. The place was very clean and well stocked with supplies. The beds were comfy, the fireplace was great, the wifi worked perfectly and the location was within walking distance to the beach.
Manager Response: Thank you for the excellent review. We're so glad your family had fun and was comfortable and cozy at Beach Pines Bungalow. We look forward to your return.
Stay at the OR coast in Dec.
We had a fabulous time, despite being swept to sea by a stormy sneaker wave - exhilarating, frightening and thankfully not anything more. House was perfect and we appreciated everything.
Manager Response: Thank you for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and the house and especially that you were safe from the sneaker wave. We always caution our guests to be aware of the potential for sneaker waves during and after storms and to be extra vigilant! We hope to have you back again soon.
Exactly what we were looking for!!
Wow. I have to say that I didn't know what to expect when we booked this, but I am still mentally on vacation in this little bungalow-even if physically I am at my desk writing this. What a perfect little home to escape to during our short vacation! Danna at Starfish was so helpful, correspondence was quick, accurate, easy! The place itself was spotless. Yes, it is an older home, some of the appliances are older, etc. That didn't bother me at all-In fact, it added character! There was no rock unturned. We had detergent, dish soap, firewood, soap and toiletries in the bathroom-they even left dog biscuits and poop bags for us. They thought of everything! There are basic spices for cooking, and any utensil or cookware you could need. Beds were comfortable, and you truly are only a short walk from a long private beach far enough away from Cannon beach to offer solitude and peace, yet its still only a 10 min drive IF that (depending on which part of CB your going to)
We loved it so much we extended our stay our last evening there, and had a confirmation first thing in the morning that we were good to go. What service! What a home! We will DEFINITELY be back!
Manager Response: Thank you for your review of Beach Pines Bungalow. We are thrilled to hear that you had a wonderful vacation and that you found everything you needed for a carefree stay! We look forward to your next visit.
best night's sleep in a year
This is a darling little cottage just a sweet little walk from the beach. Everything is spotless and the beds are super cozy and deluxe. The kitchen is wonderfully stocked, and extra points for a pretty high-caliber book selection, like kafka, dostoyevsky and the bronte sisters. Our kids adored the foosball table and having an upstairs just for kids makes it more fun for them. There is a darling backyard area and trees for kids to climb in (hope that was ok!) The pretty hydrangeas are turning colour this time of year and everywhere you look, the garden was lovely. The location is extremely convenient if you would like to take a beach walk in the morning to Hug Point or drive to cannon beach for coffee in about four minutes--we discovered The Sleepy Monk cafe which is so good, it's worth the drive from Spokane JUST for the lattes and scones. This is an enchanting place, and the owners clearly care about their little house as it is so lovingly tended, and we felt so very cozy, in rain and october sunshine. For me, I would maybe splurge the extra to get a placae right on the beach because I love to read on a deck that is looking out at the ocean. You can see the ocean through the windows, but it isn't the full view I yearn for, nor can you hear the ocean waves as you drift off to sleep. Those are things you pay extra for, however, and in my mind it would probably be worth it. Aside from that, Beach Pines is the best place we've stayed at the Coast so far. Thanks very much for the TLC.
We recently had a college sorority reunion at Arch Cape and needed a house for overflow. Although this little cottage was only used for sleeping and showering, it worked out perfectly. Everyone who stayed there was very comfortable. It is a darling little cottage with loads of character and the rental staff was easy to work with and very helpful.
Perfect Beach Vacation
We had a great beach vacation with our two young kids. House is spacious and well-equipped. The kids loved playing upstairs in the attic room which even has a foosball table. It is a very short walk to the beach - and so much less crowded than Cannon Beach itself. Nice walk to all the amazing tide pools at the south end of beach. This has been our fourth summer vacation in this area - we now found the house to come back to every year!
Diemuth E P.
Charming time on the Oregon Coast!
We loved our week at this property! The house was cute, cozy and clean. We have rented many times from VRBO and all agreed that this might have been our favorite place. We like the location of Arch Cape as it is not a tourist destination but is close to some of our favorite beaches. I would highly recommend this property and hope to be able to return here ourselves!
Beach Pines Bungalow review
We had a beautiful week. Grandparents, young adults and a three year old were all engaged in so many activities. The property was charming, well stocked and a short walk to the glorious beach. We will look forward to spending more time here in the future. Hiking, exploring tidal pools and caves, flying kites, preparing food and watching the back yard "bunnies."
We stayed at Arch Cape in a Starfish Vacation Home in June. Our stay was as close to perfect as possible. The house was very clean and spacious. It was just a block and a half from the beach! Arch Cape is so beautiful and peaceful. We've already talked about staying there in the future. I recommend this lovely setting for a quiet, fun stay.
Start of summer 2014
Didn't car for the animal odor. But property was a nice older home. Great for vacation Good location for see other places up and down the coast
Manager Response: Thank you for leaving your feedback. We apologize for any odd animal odor. This is a pet-friendly home, but it is cleaned thoroughly between each guest, and we have not had this type of odor reported before. We have tried to detect this ourselves and will continue to monitor. Glad you enjoyed the convenient location.
What a wonderful stay. Kitchen was well stocked; rooms were clean and comfortable; plenty of games available; lovely location. Just perfect.
Spring Break perfection!
There is no place more beautiful on a sunny day than the Oregon Coast! We were gifted 2 sunny days to complement our fantastic stay at the beach pines bungalow. Great location, very clean, nice amenities including plenty of rainy day activities and easy booking made our stay really relaxing.
lovely cottage--2nd stay
This cottage is so friendly and home-like, 3 of us and dog were able to relax and just enjoy ourselves. It is clean and very well equipped. We especially like the decor--simple and not too beachy.
A few items: dryer screen needs replacing, dryer took a long time to dry small load. you might check the dryer vent. I would have liked a non-slip pad for the tub/shower. There were a few sugar ants in the kitchen, but easily taken care of.
Altogether a good visit--nice to be in a familiar home. Thanks to all.
Manager Response: Thank you for the heads up about the dryer and the ants. We try to keep our properties in top condition, and I was able to get both issues resolved before the next guests arrived. We did have a non-slip pad for the sure where it went, but that's an easy replacement. Thanks again for being second time guests. We look forward to welcoming you again.
Comfy, quiet and cozy
There was more bed space than we needed, so it was a great deal for the size. It was very clean and comfortable, but not stuffy or fancy, which is just perfect for families and casual folks on vacation. Easy walk to the beach, even a peek-a-boo view of the ocean from the big kitchen table, where we spent most of our time. We loved being out of the hustle and bustle of Cannon Beach, but it was a quick drive away. We can't say enough good things about this fantastic little house. If there is anything that surprised us about the location, it's that it was only two houses off the highway. However, the house is tucked back in a beautiful little yard with big trees and not once did we notice any traffic noise. You can't even see the highway from the house. Working with Starfish Management was a great and easy experience as well.
A weekend at the beach with grandkids
Two grandparents and two young kids. Loved the room layouts and well equipped house. House is an older beach home with some structural quirkiness. Easy to get to the beach and centrally located between Astoria and Tillamook. Lots to see and do or stay at the cottage and play games. Would go back again!
great times to be had
Wonderful place to stay! Plenty of room for all. Loved the sit down meals all around the table. It was trany and stromy on our stay but we where snug a bug in a rug in this gem!
Cute beach cabin - very comfortable. Celebrated my birthday with a record breaking snow storm. It was great!
Charming beach cottage
This bungalow is adorable. It has great amenities and was a very friendly space for our two year old. Plenty of games, movies and even some toys. There's a partial ocean view from the kitchen and easy beach access. I'd come here again, just during nicer weather so we can enjoy the beach.
We had a great vacation relaxing by the fire.
Very professional and helpful.
Winter Holiday 2013
We LOVE Beach Pines!!! My 3 boys, our very large dog, and I were lucky enough to spend 10 days over the Winter holiday here. The house is definitely set up for times like this!
There was plenty of room to spread out (my boys are teenagers and they are NOT small!) and still enjoy the cozy feel of the house. The beds were very comfortable and we all slept well! The kitchen is not large but it IS well equipped for preparing large meals. We chose to do our grocery runs at the well-stocked Manzanita Grocery & Deli. Because of our long stay, we also made a run up to Costco in Warrenton which is 30-ish minutes north.
Arch Cape has an amazing beach and it is so close you can hear the surf crashing at night. :) Don't miss Hug Point at low tide! The walk along the beach is easy and well worth it. Another favorite is Short Strand Beach which is just a few miles south. There's tons of parking and the hiking trails, wandering through old grove forest, are well maintained and beautiful. We spent most of our time in the immediate area (there are always new coves and treasures to discover!) but there are also many beautiful areas to the north and south.
One of the highlights was, finally, getting to meet the property manager, Danna. She's awesome and I felt like I could call her at anytime! I would LOVE to stay at Beach Pines again and I'm already looking for another opportunity to do so!
Manager Response: Glad you were able to stay for an extended holiday in Arch Cape and really get to explore the area. There are indeed many great hiking trails with amazing vistas, some in the hills above Arch Cape, and some just a few minutes down the road. Sounds like you discovered the tide pools and waterfall at Hug Point too. I look forward to welcoming you back again soon!
