A Seaside Escape
The Nordic Star was an incredible base for exploring Cannon beach, Astoria, and further down the North coast for our group of 6. The house is set in a culdasac of other similar cedar clad homes and cottages, steps away from the beach and only a short stroll to the iconic Haystack rock. The upstairs of the home features the large living area - including a thoughtfully stocked kitchen (even a waffle maker!), long family table for meals and games and two huge couches and a fireplace and a half bath. Downstairs there is a master king bed with an ensuite, and down the hall is another king bed and a room with a double trundle bed for the kids. Another 3 piece bath and a full laundry room. The charming design and decor of the house is seaside inspired, with buttery yellow walls to keep even the most dense PNW fog and rain at bay. Beach blankets, chairs, a kite and beach toys are in the garage as well as an outdoor shower- they have thought of everything! The midpoint shops and restaurants are only a short 10 minute stroll away (Irish Table a must!). Wander further along the beach or the main road and you’ll hit the Main Street full of charming galleries, retail shops, cafes and bistros, all with the iconic beach town look and lovely piazzas. Ecola State Park and Oswald State Park border this town on either side and offer incredible beaches and old growth forest hikes with jaw-dropping vistas. We will be back!

Everything a Family could Want
The Nordic Star was the perfect immaculate rental for our family. All of the living and activity area was on the top floor with comfy couches, cozy blankets, lots of dining space for 8 with a gorgeous well stocked kitchen. Great for cooking! The downstairs bedrooms had fantastic comfy beds,mattresses and sheets. Master has huge shower and privacy. The other two bedrooms were perfect for our children/ grandchildren. There is even a garage with beach chairs, quilts and shower. It was easy to get the little ones to shower and get all the sand off. Last but not least, we enjoyed a delicious birthday dinner catered by one of the Starfish staff. It was a night to remember.. It was a perfect home close to the sand and Haystack rock! Cannot wait to return!,,

“Heaven is a place on earth”
The Nordic Star is a wonderful place to stay in Cannon Beach. Everything is recently renovated and the interior decorating puts you in a holiday state of mind as soon as you walk through the door. A quick stroll to the beach every morning is a great way to start the day. Our daughter always started her day with a trip to the Sea Level bakery(5 minute walk).
I would highly recommend the Nordic Star to any families looking for some relaxing time together. The fireplace makes for cozy evenings!

Beautiful, clean home
This home was perfect for our family of 7. Everybody had a bed to sleep in and the home was very clean and well stocked with cooking utensils and even some basic supplies. My kids loved sitting in the comfy chair by the window and watch the ocean getting pounded by the storms. There was plenty of room for everyone to sit in the living room and around the dining room table. The house was just a block away from the beach which was very easy to access. We would definitely love to come back again!

Nordic Star has been thoughtfully equipped and furnished by a professional designer, and she will be thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed her home. That comfy chair is a favorite of many! We are glad you were treated to some excellent storm-watching during your stay and hope you'll be back again soon. - Starfish Vacation Rentals

Truly relax in this beautiful home
Our week at Nordic Star was blissfully relaxing and comfortable. From cozy wraparound couches and stressless chair to a fully equipped kitchen, the open living area on the second floor found us lingering around the fireplace. Pillow top beds are like sleeping on a cloud. The house is sparkling clean throughout. With Cannon Beach Haystack Rock access only a few steps away, we walked the beach several times a day. Great house, we’ll be back!

How soon can we come back?
That was the question our family of four adults asked before we even left. The other reviews concerning the home’s cleanliness, very, and proximity to Haystack Rock, see it out the window, are true. The home is bright, kitchen well equipped, and beds are comfortable. We received updates concerning the house before and during the stay including one that warned us of a slide blocking Hwy 101. With all this my best review would be that I was asked when we could come back before our time there was even finished!
