Sometimes you really can have it all! Starfish Vacation Rentals proudly welcomes you to Stone’s Throw, a beautiful home that offers the best of all worlds. It boasts unobstructed views of the majestic Pacific Ocean and miles of soft sand, plus it sits next to Laneda, Manzanita’s main street lined with boutique shops and fine restaurants. Just renovated, this house has the perfect blend of modern, understated style and charming original features like its massive stone fireplace. With room for up to 16 people (and one or two well-behaved canine guests), Stone’s Throw gives you a luxurious setting for family reunions, small receptions, and work retreats by the sea.
You’ll find many thoughtful amenities and features for an excellent group experience:
• A huge, fully equipped kitchen and spacious counters make it easy for everyone to cook together.

• With its panoramic ocean view, the living room window seat will beckon morning coffee drinkers, afternoon readers, and late-night conversation partners.
• The warm, inviting living room is also graced by the original wood-burning fireplace and striking antique furniture. Build a cozy fire with wood we provide and watch the cable-equipped HD TV.
• If you can turn your attention away from even more ocean views provided downstairs by the great room, you’ll find a massive National Geographic collection, free WiFi, a cable-equipped TV and BluRay DVD player, and a Foosball table to entertain you.
• Everyone knows how much laundry beach visits can generate. With two separate laundry facilities—one on each floor—no one has to wait.
• The home’s bedroom closets contain handy built-in shelves for extra storage.
• The kitchenette downstairs makes a great snack station. Its second refrigerator offers convenient storage for meal supplies, leftovers, and your favorite beach beverages.

You’re just a short drive away from exploring other seaside towns like Cannon Beach, Seaside, and Astoria. And you’ve got abundant choices when it comes to nearby outdoor recreation, including golfing at Manzanita Golf Course and Alderbrook Golf Course; hiking Neahkahnie Mountain, Oswald State Park, and Ecola State Park; surfing at Short Sands Beach; horseback riding; and kayaking, crabbing, clamming, fishing, and stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) in Nehalem Bay.

Annual Girls Trip
5 of us have been taking a girls trip to the northern Oregon coast for over a dozen years and this is our 2nd consecutive stay at Stone’s Throw. The house is great! Fabulous kitchen, tons of space and right across from the beach (with wonderful beach view) And staff is friendly and very helpful!
Do not pass this one up!
This place is absolutely amazing. The location is perfect, 20 steps from everything you need in an absolutely lovely little uncrowded town. It is sparkling clean, the kitchen is AMAZING, and the management staff is outstanding. Danna and everyone else answered every question I had including how many martini glasses and beach chairs there were. You absolutely can not beat the location. Literally steps or a "Stone's Throw" from the beach. Nice clean lovely hot tub as well. If it's available. Jump on it. Due to the size of our group, we also rented the house behind it "Villa Manzanita". This was also a gorgeous, roomy, airy, fantastic place and was accessible to Stones Throw through a back gate. I highly recommend Villa Manzanita as well.
Everything it promised and more
We stayed here for a family reunion with 12 people. The house was exactly as advertised, super clean, plenty of cooking utensils (including nice pans - I hate it when rental houses have Teflon scratched pans). Our overall impression was that whoever renovated this house really understood how it would be used by groups. It was a very pleasant and comfortable house to stay in complete with everything you may need. We will definitely consider staying here again for a future reunion.
30th annual Oregon Coast Trip
The house was great for our ever growing family! Great location, easy beach access, well appointed kitchen , a table big enough for 16!
It was a lovely relaxed stay with a glorious view of the ocean, and a cozy fire all from the same spot in my jammies. Just what I needed.
Manager Response: Stone's Throw does have amazing views!! We're so glad to hear you got to enjoy some down time in front of the fire. We'd love to have you come back again soon. Don't forget your PJs!
Great place for large groups!
Excellent home - all updated, plenty of space for multiple families to stay. Great location right across from the beach and near stores and restaurants in town. Large bedrooms and bathrooms and great for lots of kids. Only downside is that the beds weren't the most comfortable, but it wasn't a dealbreaker.
The house is really well remodeled giving plenty of space for a large group. There are no en suite bathrooms, but plenty of shared access. The kitchen downstairs allowed plenty of extra refrigerator space. The hot tub was clean and private. The beds were comfortable although no Kings if you’re used to that.
Family gathering for Mom's Memorial
This was hands down the best stocked home we've ever rented, and was absolutely lovely & immaculate. The management team was communicative all the way & the high quality extra bedding was more than enough for additional sleeping bodies. Wonderful Home!!!
Awesome Girls Trip
We had a great stay over a long weekend. There were 4 of us and the house was perfect for eating, drinking and hanging out. And house would easily accommodate many more-we only used a small part of the house
Gorgeous house, perfect location, excellent support staff
The house was perfect, very clean, unbeatable location, comfy beds, plenty of space!
Manager Response: Thank you for wonderful review! Stone's Throw is perfect for beach access and close to all of the shops in Manzanita. We'll make sure to let our housekeeping staff know you were happy with the cleanliness. We look forward to having you back soon. - Starfish Vacation Rentals
Oregon Allergy Associates
Our annual retreat has been here four times. We look forward to 2019 on the same weekend.
Manager Response: Thank you for choosing to have your retreat in our homes! It's an honor to welcome you back year after year. See you next September! -Starfish Vacation Rentals
We gathered all of our kids, spouses and 3 grandchildren for a week at this wonderful house by the beach. It exceeded our expectations. The house had plenty of room for 10 adults, 2 dogs and 3 babies. The kitchen was amazing....very large, very well stocked and that kitchen table was fabulous for games and meals! The location was also wonderful. We walked the beach every day, made bonfires at night and walked to stores and restaurants. So fun!!
Manager Response: We are thrilled to read what a wonderful time you and your family had at Stone's Throw. It sounds like it was a perfect fit for your family - close to town, convenient for spending lots of time on the beach, a large kitchen for cooking together, and a closet filled with board games. We are super excited you'll be staying with us again next summer - its a great honor for us to welcome back our loyal guests! Starfish Vacation Rentals
A great family reunion house
We gathered our extended family for a 1 week stay in. August. The kitchen is fabulous and we happily ate all but one meal at home. Two nights we leveraged the recommended local cook - which allowed us the best of both worlds. The views from the living room and porch made it a pleasure for our 82 year old mom. Each bedroom was beautiful and comfortable.
Perfect Family Gathering!!
We had a magical stay with our family at Stones Throw and the space could not have been better suited for our group, ranging in age from 3 to 70 years old! The huge kitchen and dining area was perfect for our big group. We will be back!
Fantastic experience. Location is perfect right across the beach. The house had everything you can dream to have on a vacation home. The kitchen is huge and all the utensils you will ever need to make meals. The beds were comfortable. In short we will be reserving this location again next year. Thank you!!!
Manager Response: Thank you for this outstanding review of your stay. Our team at Starfish Vacation Rentals works tirelessly to ensure our homes are well-stocked for our visitors, and reviews like yours are a super reward for their efforts. The owner of Stone's Throw recognizes how important a good night sleep is especially while on vacation, and it was important to her to invest in quality mattresses. We are thrilled that all of these details made a positive impact on your vacation, and we can't wait to welcome you again next year!
We loved being right on the beach! The house was great and when we had an issue it was fixed quickly.
Beach Front Family reunion
We would definitely stay at Stone's Throw again! The house was clean, comfortable, and if it was located any closer to the beach we'd get swept away! Fully equipped kitchen and the amenities were wonderful, wood burning fireplace, hot tub, etc. Though we thought we would gather in the living room more, we found it was more accommodating for the family to spend the majority of our stay hanging around the dining room table which feels bright, open, and overlooks the deck and the view. The only issue that turned out to be a considerable inconvenience is that the dishwasher was broken. We planed to prepare all our meals for our large group at the house and a broken dishwasher meant a good deal of precious time lost to washing dishes by hand during our brief stay. This will likely be resolved for future guests as they did call a repair service and were waiting for parts.
We Can't Wait to Come Back!
A group of us has gotten together for the last 6 or 7 years at the Coast at different houses so we've pretty much perfected packing for what we have found missing in other homes.
We didn't need any of it here. This is definitely the best equipped kitchen we have found. Appliances, spices, utensils, crock pots are all here.
We had a couple of small issues that Nanette at Starfish fixed quickly and easily that did not affect our stay at all.
We are so looking forward to staying here again. It really is a perfect home in a perfect location. You can tell the people that own designed it for and use it for family gatherings. Thank you!
This is a perfect place for 2 or 12 or more. It is very kid safe and the view straight to the beach is not only gorgeous but it allows you when to know when it is a good time to go to the beach!! It is around the corner from morning coffee and treats. It is by far our favorite place to stay in Manzanita.
Great place on the beach
The place was everything we expected. We loved all the recent remodel (the whole place). It's across a small road from the beach. It was a perfect place for our extended family of 18 (6 little kids).
It could use a bigger water heater but not bad. Starfish support was on it and answered questions even when I was a little embarrassed about calling them on Thanksgiving day. This place is a 20 out of 10! We would stay there again. Manzanita is a cute little beach town. Loved it.
Great house, great location
What a great house and location. It is on the main road, but couldn't be any closer to the beach. Very convenient and well-appointed. Everything worked out well for our large family event!
Stones Throw family reunion
The outside of this home is deceiving! We were blown away at the beauty, cleanliness, amenities, down to the towels. Top top notch........
Gorgeous home with everything you need!
We loved this home! If was perfect for our family! All the linens and 2 sets of washer/dryer were fantastic! The huge dining table is such an amazing piece where we could sit down with our whole large family and all eat together!
The house for a family get together!!
We had an amazing time the 15 of us. Staying at this gorgeous house with a prime location, experiencing fabulous weather and getting together with all the kids and grandkids....The kitchen is a wonderful place to create, the amenities are top notch, and the necessities are already in place....Telling you we already booked for next year says it all. Don't forget to utilize Nannette's labors of love as a gourmet chef!! She is fantastic and better than the restaurants around Manzanita or Cannon Beach....
We chose Stone's Throw to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday with family, and it was perfect in every way! Very comfortable, lots of room, and a magnificent location. We couldn't have asked for more!
Wonderful Place For A Family Group
From start to finish we loved everything about this experience! The people at Starfish were easy to work with. They were very responsive to questions and there were no unpleasant surprises. We were however very pleasantly surprised by the property! The kitchen was beyond everything we hoped for. It was well equipped with every small appliance we might desire from multiple toasters to a blender and a Cuisinart. The roomy kitchen with a spectacular view was a delight to cook in with multiple people. Usually the cooking equipment is not good but the pots and pans easily worked for our large group and the knives were decent. There was a good supply of dinnerware and the dishwasher accommodated it all! The beds were comfortable and we liked that there wasn't a master bedroom... all bedrooms were equally well equipped and shared the well appointed bathrooms. We had Grandparents, a family of six, a family of three, and a single. Everyone had their "space". We liked that the living area was separate from the sleeping areas which made it easier to put kids down. There were also two washers and dryers! The location with it's beach access and short walk to the cute town of Manzanita is unbeatable! We didn't eat out but the restaurants looked good and there is a small but very well equipped grocery store and a health food store within walking distance. You can easily find foods needed, even speciality items like gluten free. This truly was a perfect multi family home!
PERFECT GIRLFRIEND'S 60th CELEBRATION
Just returned from meeting 7 childhood girlfriends to celebrate our 60th birthdays. This home was exceptional. I've rented very frequently on VRBO and this was in the top 3 homes I've rented. It has an unobstructed view of the ocean. We watched the kite surfers by day, listened to the calming sound of the waves by night. We walked to the store, restaurants, the spa. Didn't need the cars at all. The home is in immaculate condition, with an incredibly well-stocked kitchen. We each had our own bed, with only two having to share a room. The bathrooms seem brand new and have wonderful water pressure and amenities. There's two washers and dryers, one of each floor. The spa was heated and ready for us to jump in (albeit there was sand on the bottom but that didn't stop us!)
I want to compliment the owner on their extraordinary taste in decor. We each took pictures of the adorable wall hangings and accents. Loved the colors and choices of materials!
One small caveat: As is true with most beach properties, this one does not have air conditioning. There was record breaking heat during our stay. We could only find one fan. I called Starfish and Nanette responded swiftly to bring us another fan.
Our entire group was so happy we had decided on Stone's Throw. We all really loved it and would love to return some day. You can't go wrong with this one.
Perfect Family Reunion House!
A beautiful house with comfy beds, very clean and nice. And the view! Wow! The location was perfect. The kids loved being able to walk right out and head for the beach. There was plenty of room for all of us to be there together. We loved it. If there was anything negative to say, it would be that the ice maker stopped working on our second day. Everything else was terrific!
Wonderful home for a family group!
The home is in a great location with lovely views of the ocean. Spacious and well equipped kitchen, very clean and provided with all necessities. Our questions were answered when they arose. We felt welcomed and cared for.
Spring Break Vacation Home
Beautiful vacation home! We loved the location, views and house. I couldn't have been more pleased.
Amazing Trip to Oregon Coast...
We visited in the spring and the weather was not great...but the house was fantastic. One of the cleanest, best equipped houses we have ever rented. Great sheets, towels and excellent kitchen. And, the weather...who cares...plenty to do. Also, the game room kept the 6 kids we had in the house occupied for hours in the evenings. Plenty of space as we had 3 families with 11 people and never felt crowded at all. Highly recommend.
Above and beyond!
Fantastic stay in Manzanita
Stone's Throw is an amazing rental, perfect for our 13 person group. The huge kitchen, great dining area, and amazing facilities/amenities really set the stage for a great weekend.
Perfect Girls Weekend
We loved Stone's Throw. As soon as we walked in to the house we were so impressed. The house is gorgeous and the view is even better. This was the perfect weekend for our girls getaway. Everyone talked about coming back. Thank you for the amazing experience!
Beautiful home for family event
This home was amazing! Everything and anything you could think of they have available in the kitchen. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were top notch quality and cleanliness. We did a big family event with multiple extended family members, We were all very comfortable with the way the house is layed out. The closeness to the town was nice too. Would I stay here again? Yes.
AMAZING LOCATION AND HOUSE
Many houses will say that they sleep a large number, but then they don't equip for that number. This house is fully equipped! Every kitchen appliance and tool you can think of which made cooking for large numbers easy.
Kitchen fully equipped
Large dining room table
2nd fridge down stairs (full size)
Spotlessly clean - thanks cleaning crew!
CONS: We used the hot tub daily -in large numbers. With that high a number and daily usage, we had to call for a cleaning 1/2 way through. I think the agency should put a note to that affect encouraging that.
My only real complaint is in the living room. It's a fabulous room, but the furniture is inadequate, uncomfortable and several pieces were broken upon our arrival. There is only sitting for 8 and 2 are on hard-back chairs. Thankfully, we like to sit on the floor, but if we had had a lot of rainy days, this would have been an issue. Since the rest of the house is amazing, a little care on several couches would go a long way.
NOTES: The living room is a totally separate room from the kitchen. We loved that, but some people may really need an open concept and it's hard to tell from the pictures.
Manager Response: We value all feedback - this home is exceptionally well-equipped! The hot tub is professionally maintained once a week (twice a week in the summer months). We also provide chlorine packets to be used after each hot tub session to keep it in top condition. It is worth noting that there were seven children under the age of 9 staying and when our service tech arrived, he had to drain the tub due to amount of urine and other debris in it. We don't consider this normal use of the tub! We have passed along the comments about the living room furniture to the owner who takes great pride in keeping her home in top condition. There is a floor plan online which provides a visual of the layout. This home has been loved by many larger groups, many returning for multiple visits thanks to the layout, condition, and location of the home!
My family of 15 stayed here for a family reunion in January. It's a fantastic house, plenty of room for 15 adults and not feel like we were on top of each other. Lovely,lovely home. Super well furnished and stocked, comfy beds, nice big bathrooms with plenty of space to hang towels and counter space. The kitchen is crazy big and all the massive counter space is handy for storing all the food we brought. The hot tub was nice too! And it's right across a quiet street from the beach! It really couldn't have been a better,nicer place for us.
Newly remodeled home suitable for multiple families and designed for entertaining many friends and family. Highly recommended!
Perfect Home for the Perfect Beach Gathering
Stone's Throw is the ideal beach rental. It's spacious but cozy, elegant but simple, and immaculately clean. It is exactly how I would design a home if given the budget. The owner and rental agency were very thoughtful in that everything a guest could possibly need was provided. The rental agency was generous, friendly and kind in our interactions. The beach proximity and views were inspiring, so much so that I got out and surfed for the first time in two years! I especially loved that all of our guests (16) could eat together (and fit comfortably) at the long wooden dinner table. We had three children in our group (ages 20 mos.-9 years) and they had a wonderful time, as well. The huge kitchen makes it easy to cook for a large group, and the three (well-appointed) bathrooms ensured that there was no wait time. Our only big disappointment was that the hot tub was not warmed before we arrived, and it was a main selling point of the rental for us. It took nearly 24 hours before it reached a desirable temperature, so were were able to utilize it for only one evening before checking out. Even so, we would definitely return to this house and we highly recommend it!
It's difficult to find a home that will accommodate comfortably, our large family. We were very blessed when we found Stone's Throw! It was better than the pictures even showed. Perfect setting with it being just across a small street to the beach. We loved that if a baby was napping, you could sit on the porch and still be a part of the others on the beach. We loved the kitchen that was so well stocked and loved that you could be looking out at the ocean even as we were preparing meals! We loved gathering in the living room with the original fireplace that adds so much character, with everyone or sitting in the wind seat and taking it all in! Everything about our stay was PERFECT! Thank you for working with us to make this all possible! We love you!
Great beach house for our group
Really outstanding place for our 9 person group of single folks - plenty of beds, plenty of baths, extremely well remodeled, great kitchen, huge dining table for our whole group. Management group was great. Highly recommend.
Best Vacay Ever! Didn't Want to Leave!
We needed a getaway. Something where me and my friends could relax and what better place to do that than the beach?!
It was easy to book, the communication prior to arrival was amazing. My friends were kept informed with the a portal about the house, the area and what to bring. Made the planning easy!
When we arrived the house was clean, the layout and décor were perfect. The location ideal. We are already talking about making this an annual trip!
Beautiful house with a great location!
Loved this newly renovated and nicely located house! The kids had easy access to the beach, and we enjoyed the beatific views and sunsets and proximity to shops snd restaurants. Looking forward to returning!
