Get away from it all in this newly updated classic mid-century home with stunning ocean views. Situated on a secluded bluff at the foot of Neahkahnie Mountain, you will find this peaceful retreat still filled with the original charm of bygone days. Discover your private half acre grounds with manicured landscaping and if you feel adventurous, a tire swing in the yard. It's just this kind of charm and privacy that once attracted Carol Channing for an extended stay.

The majestic setting of this home overlooking the ocean still leaves you only a short five-minute walk to the renowned Manzanita beach with its wide sweeping sand beach and dunes. If you want to take a trip back in time, this house is for you.

Our stay at the Purcell House
We celebrated our daugher's 40h birthday at the Purcell House. It was perfect! The view was incredible, the house very comfortable and well maintained. The kitchen was well supplied and spacious for our Oaxacan dinner. Hope to come back.

Wonderful House
We had a great time at the Purcell House. You can tell as you approach the hidden drive that you are in for a private treat (and retreat). The house is fantastic and fully outfitted.

As a lover of garages, particularly empty ones, I did make an input to the management agency to provide a small "keychain" type remote control for the garage. You can park your car in there, but not "real" convenient in the rain to get out of your car to go back in the house to close the door. This is minor, but would be a nice touch.

Management company (Starfish) was super friendly and accommodating.

Manager Response: Robb, it was a pleasure to welcome you to The Purcell House. We at Starfish Vacation Rentals ensure that our homes are well-supplied for a relaxing vacation so that our guests don't have to haul extra gear with them. We appreciate your suggestion about the remote control and will look into that with the owner. We're looking forward to having you stay with us again soon.

Picture Windows onto the Pacific Coast!
The most gorgeous, private setting I have ever found on the Oregon Coast! This is retro luxury in the most perfect of settings! What a great place to relax and enjoy the phenomenal Oregon Coast. Perfect for a large group and affordable if splitting the cost between couples.

Beautiful location and views, comfortable large ranch house
Extraordinary views in many directions. Very nice property. There are neighbors but you don't really see them at all. House is kind of 1950s/1960s style decorations but in very good shape.

Note to property management company: Using that Hospitality app was mostly just an annoyance. It sent all kinds of messages that were bothersome/intrusive on a vacation. But I had trouble getting response when I did have small issues/questions. I'd suggest skipping the app and providing an email address, and checking it regularly.

What a great house for a family vacation in the cool summer!
The beds were comfortable, the kitchen equipped with all the necessary tools and walking distance from the quiet, relaxing beach! So fun picking blackberries every day and enjoying nearby Cannon Beach!

50th Bday Weekend!
Booked and stayed at the Purcell home late June. Arrived Thursday evening, stayed thru Sunday Morning. Everything was just as advertised. The home was spacious and the views were spectacular. Plenty of parking for cars, plenty of room indoors and out for all guests. Easy walk, even easier bike ride to the beach. Never heard a peep from any of the neighbors. Had deer walking thru the property a few times. Fire wood amply stocked, everything worked in the home, it was clean and tidy...such a perfect layout and setting. Will definitely book again.

Manager Response: Thank you for your kind words about The Purcell House. It is in a large, beautiful, private setting ideal for small or large families. Our team works very hard to supply everything to make your stay memorable and comfortable and were very pleased to hear the home was perfect for all of your needs.

BEST spot in Oregon
I truly can't say enough wonderful things about this mid century home. Not only is it immaculate, but it was perfect for our family of 9. Perfect!! Every morning I would sit by the North window with a hot cup of coffee enjoying the spectacular views of the beach and mountain and for dinner I would eat outside on the south side to take in the energy of the beach. Far enough away from the beach access to feel like you are all alone, but close enough to walk easily. As much as I want to keep this place a secret, it just wouldn't be right! You will not be disappoined!!

Manager Response: Thank you so much Jami - your review really captures the special essence of The Purcell House. This little corner of heaven at the base of Neahkahnie Mountain feels so private and yet as you note is a quick walk to the beach and quick drive to town. The owner and the team at Starfish Vacation Rentals have just renovated and refreshed much of the interior, and it is a complete thrill to hear how much you and your family enjoyed it. We are looking forward to your return next summer.
