We coouldn't have had a better location for a very dear celebration!
Celestial sights and energy everywhere!
Home with amazing view of Haystack Rock from all of the windows with room for 8-12 guests. Direct access to beach & Haystack Rock Tidal Pools. Convenient to downtown & all major attractions. Fully equipped kitchen for family style meals. Hot tub a real bonus.
This is a beautiful place--very nice for a large family. Nicely kept up. Fantastic location with a direct view of Haystack Rock.
While the house sleeps 12, our party of 4 enjoyed our stay a great deal and we can see how the place would be perfect for a large group of family or friends.
Truth to tell, we picked it only because it advertises itself as "dog friendly" and when we reserved it we intended to take our dog on holiday with us. Sadly, she died a few months before our visit so a non-dog house smack on the beach would have worked out just fine. But we are glad we went.
First, the view is incredible. Beach access is close by and when you're not on the beach you can be watching all the action while sitting in front of a fire or sipping an adult beverage.
The house itself is a rambling thing, perfectly designed to house a large number of folks - got bedrooms and bathrooms seemingly tucked everywhere. The architect must be a very interesting person.
This house apparently is very popular and hordes of people take their toll. Nonetheless, it's in fine shape for a holiday house. Everything seems to work, it's well-equipped and there are spaces for group gathering and spaces to be alone.
Two things would have made it better: getting more than a trickle of water pressure in the master bath shower, and having a garage door opener provided -- running up and down the outside staircase got old fast.
One feature that was VERY attractive was the dumb waiter between the garage and the living area. It made hauling all our gear, and our groceries after shopping, far, far easier.
Concerned about another reviewer's comment that the garage would not take an SUV, I asked property manager Michael if our new Jeep Grand Cherokee would fit. He said it would, if there was no roof rack or other superstructure atop the vehicle. He was right, but it was tight. An Expedition or Suburban? Forget it.
The driveway is short, but VERY steep. Vacasa tells you it's steep and you should believe them.
We had a fine five nights there and would happily return if we had a slightly larger group.
This house is great in size. Pleently of room and jacuzzi is nice
Despite the rain and strong winds on some of our days we really enjoyed this property. Our group of 6 adults and 3 kids had plenty of space to both enjoy time together and have private time. The kids really enjoyed the playroom under the garage. My wife and I enjoyed the master bedroom with its view of Haystack Rock. We all enjoyed the hot tub in the evening. Despite the rain we enjoyed day trips to Mt St Helens, Agate Beach, Eco State Park and Long Beach. We had other areas and hikes planned and will come back to complete them. We will definitely stay here when we do.
The kitchen was will stocked and met our needs. We prepared all of our breakfasts and most of our suppers.
Amazing view and perfect size for families.
The pictures look good on the website, but our experience wasn't as pretty, sadly. The heat didn't work for the first 24 hours we were there, and we learned that the heat pump was a pile of rust: we were running on emergency heat, which caused the breakers to kick off and overheat. The BBQ was rusty and unusable, the carpeting needs to be replaced and if you like to cook, be sure to bring your own utensils, pots/pans, mixing and serving bowls and essentially everything you need. Or just plan to pick up a pizza because trying to cook was difficult with the old, broken and scanty kitchen equipment that was on hand. Parking is limited: the steep, narrow driveway accomodates only one large SUV and an SUV won't fit in the garage (small cars are fine) so we had to park on the street, a hike away. For the price, we found it to be very disappointing indeed. The view was lovely, but we won't rent again.
We sincerely apologize for the heating problem this guest experienced while here. The heat pump has been replaced, the furnace is functioning perfectly, and the breaker problem has been resolved. There is some surface rust on the BBQ due to the close proximity to the ocean. The carpet is only a year old and recently shampooed. The Property Manager inspected the kitchen inventory and found the home to be well stocked with various cooking utensils, multiple pots and pans, several mixing/serving bowls, cookie sheets, cutting boards, etc., and all were found to be in good condition. Thank you!
So we are already planning our return trip to this lovely, comfortable home house - with the amazing location and unparalleled view. The house is very well set up for a group such as ours - two families with teens. Plenty of space to get away from each other and come together as well. The hot tub was well used, beach was very easy to access and downtown was a 15-20 min walk- and less than 5 min drive.
Wonderful place with everything needed for a great vacation.
Lots of space, great location. One bathroom does not have a shower. Plenty of sleeping space, books, games, dishes, etc.
We loved the house and its proximity to the beach and ocean. The house met almost all our expectations. It should be clear to others that there are a lot of stairs (we found it more convenient to go through the garage). Crossing the main road was a bit scary with children. We hope to come back soon!
Perfect location, lots of space, comfortable house. Definitely would consider again. The secret red-room play area was a hit with the 3-year old!
We found this house to be the perfect fit for the ten of us. The view of the ocean was awesome! The closeness to the beach and the downtown area was great.
This is a beautiful home with a beautiful view. We love it!
We had a terrific time relaxing, cooking, and walking along the beautiful beach and quaint town. Highly recommend this beach house!
Excellent location with fantastic views.
This is my family's 3rd time at the Haystack property. We just absolutely love this home and the location. The views are spectacular. We hope to come here every year.
Honestly, we wanted to buy the house out right, that's how much we loved it!
This is a spacious house with phenomenal views of Haystack Rock and easy access to shops & restaurants (with a little walking). We celebrated our friend's birthday lounging in the hot tub and enjoying the lovely sunset. A great place for kids to hang out with a fun loft bedroom & separate game table area, and for couples who want their own en suite bedroom.
The house was large enough for each couple in our family to have their own separate space without being on top of each other. There were lots of toys for the kids and we loved the location. The view was breathtaking. Thank you, Fayne
Our extended family enjoyed our time in Cannon Beach. We only wish we had more time and that the sun had come out more on a regular basis. The house was very special and included alot of special places for families, and kids to gather. The hot tub was used and appreciated.
Great location and friendly atmosphere. Fires on the beach are key and a short stroll into the town affords shopping and dining. Great for family sharing.
What an amazing house for a large group of friends. The views from nearly every room of the home were breath taking. The proximity to the beach awesome. We enjoyed the large open living space which was great so we could all be together for cooking, eating, playing games and relaxing. The kids loved their own private space. They literally disappeared and enjoyed their time together as much as the rest of us. Thank you for sharing your home. Nothing could have been better.
Great house for a crowd. Many separate sleeping areas and bathrooms .The kitchen, dining area and living room handles a crowd well. Nice deck and hot tub. The view and location are unbeatable. Beware that the site is very steep...there are many stairs inside and out, but if you are in shape....it doesn't matter. We were a group of 10, with 4 small children, and it was great.
It is a beautiful house and a terrific location!
Apart from the minor details mentioned above, this is an amazing house. Our entire party was thrilled with the unique set-up, the location and the attention to detail in the decor of this house. It has a lot of conveniences like the dumb-waiter, instant-hot water in the kitchen, shower in the garage, tons of extra towels and comfortable beds and linens. Perfect for a large party. We were 8 adults and 2 children and we all fit around the dining table!
This house with awesome view, and great location was the perfect spot to chill out from the stress of Seattle life. We loved waking to Haystack Rock. Grabbed coffee and the dogs and head for a beach walk. Perfect way to start the day. We had dinner on the deck followed by a visit to the hot tub. Perfect! Would stay here again!
Plenty of space for a large group. Kids have their own wing so you can enjoy adult conversation. Kitchen table is very large and was great. Also a second 4 chair table for cards on the 2nd level. Kids can use this for games or eating as well.
My Mom turned 80 this year and didn't want a party, but wanted to be with her kids and grandkids in Cannon Beach, which is her favorite place to be in the whole wide world. When I found this beautiful house, I knew it was going to be that special place to celebrate her birthday. And sure enough, it was that and much more!! We had the most amazing time celebrating our Mom's 80th birthday in this lovely house! There was plenty of room for all of us with room to spare. The kids said it was like a tree house with lots of fun place to hide and play. The views were absolutely stunning with Haystack Rock right from the front window. Everyone enjoyed their bedrooms and my sister especially enjoyed a spa moment in the cute red bathtub! The kitchen was well equipped and easy to cook in. The space around the kitchen was open so that we could have conversations while cooking. The dining table comfortably fit all of us and we enjoyed lingering after eating for lively conversation and games. If you are okay with stairs, because there are allot of stairs getting up to the front door as well as the inside, this is the best place!! Beach access was right across the street and the stairs lead right down to the beach without any effort. We are starting to make plans to come back next year! This house exceeded our expectations and beyond. Beautifully decorated and a wonderful place to stay. Thank you so much for the opportunity to experience this beautiful house!!
Great location for tide pool exploring, but the house has many levels and many stairs. Getting to the beach also requires two flights, but for good knees, this could be a great choice.
I booked this property for 3 nights to spend a few days on the coast before a friend's wedding in Portland. We arrived (by chance) right at check-in time and everything went exactly according to plan. The house is well furnished and so very comfortable. The town is easy walking distance, beach access directly across the street, and lots of attractions are an easy drive (we chose Astoria).
I truly can't imagine there is a better view of Haystack Rock, and if you're lucky enough to get a clear evening, the sunset is amazing!
Thanks to Vacasa and especially the property owner for giving us the opportunity to experience the very best of Cannon Beach!
We loved the house, the location and the view! We will definitely stay again and are already planning the next trip! Please not there are a lot of stairs so those with mobility issues may not enjoy.
This is a very comfortable house with outstanding views from many spots. The hot tub was nice. There are a lot of steps which didn't cause any problems especially since there was a dumb waiter for getting our things into and out of the house easily. The drive is steep as described by Vacasa the driver must take care getting in and out of it.
We had a GREAT family vacation at this beach house!!!
The views of Haystack rock and the beach are truly amazing. The house was clean, comfortable and perfect for multiple families. Super easy access to the beach with stairs directly across the street. The walk to the main street of Cannon Beach was about a mile with sidewalks almost the entire way. Great place to stay!
Best rental our family ever had. Spacious, perfect location. We loved every minute of our stay!
Great for large groups of people. The location can't be beat and the hot tub was an added bonus.
My family and I love this place. It's beautiful.
Lovely house with fabulous views of the haystack. Would come back anytime
I took my husband away for a surprise visit to Cannon Beach. I was looking for a place he could really relax and unwind. We have two golden retrievers, and wanted to bring them along. Sometimes with dogs you have to sacrifice quality of where you stay, but that was not the case here. The house was amazing with views of Haystack Rock from the living room as well as the master bedroom. It was dreamy to wake up to that view every morning! It has a well-stocked kitchen if you like to cook, which we do. The hot tub provided a lovely way to warm ourselves after a frigid walk on the beach. You also have lovely view of the beach from the hot tub! Very romantic. This house has space for 12, but it was just the two of us and our dogs and we thoroughly enjoyed to space, and the quiet. We even got to enjoy a couple of fires in the woodburning fireplace (and make s'mores!). We can't wait to return to this house again. We highly recommend it!
This was a GREAT location for our book club retreat. The property was clean and the layout was great for a large group. Our complaints: We had difficulty working the heater, despite reading all the instructions online and in the rental. We were also unable to get the TV/ DVD to work in the main living room. We contacted the rental company about both these issues, but we never heard back from them during our stay. This was disappointing. It was January and very cold. The shower in the master did not get hot enough to use, but the other showers were fine. There is also no Ipod dock or speaker for music. Good thing we all like to read! Updates to the property would be helpful. It was very clean and convenient to the beach.
Best house in cannon beach to rent for larger groups.
We had a family get together here for 3 nights in early January. It was a great stay. There are very nice common areas where we could all join together, but also nice separate spaces where we could spread out. The kitchen and dining area was perfect for cooking and eating together. We love getting out, even in January. It was a short walk down a path to the beach with Haystack Rock right there. A nice central location and not to far to either Neahkahnie Mtn or Ecola Beach. Very nice view out the windows - my son and his girl friend claimed the window seat for the whole stay. We didn't use the hot tub, but looked like a great option. We'd certainly come back here again.
This house is on many levels with many stairs. One of our guests had recently injured her ankle and was on crutches. She really had a hard time getting around the house. But for everyone else, it was great!
This was a wonderful house and location. We will most definitely stay there again. The only problem was parking. Other than that, it was perfect and beautiful.
Just sit and enjoy the view. Now this house has many levels if your guests can't maneuver well on stairs this is not the house for you. But we had 4 children who absolutely loved all the play areas and the quirkiness of the house design. The house is well equipped and the greatest view imaginable from most every room. Great kitchen and large table and outdoor eating as well. Very well appointed. With 12 people this was a rare gem!
We just got back from a great trip to this property. You are extremely close to the beach and the whole house takes advantage of the beautiful view. It is perfect for a couple of families or a bunch of friends. Very nice kitchen, fabulous living room to enjoy the view and the patio/ hot tub area is heaven. We went in early September, and our only real complaint was that the AC did not feel like it kept up. But opening the doors and windows that had screens helped. Some rooms are more updated than others, but it did not take away from our trip. A secret room filled with toys kept our children occupied for hours! The house way spread out enough that everyone had space to relax on their own. We often walked into town, but we liked being out of the crowded feeling of the middle of town. We will be back!!
We loved our recent stay at Cannon Beach, and the house is very convenient, spacious, and comfortable, even for a large group-- we were 8. The location is perfect for wandering a few short flights of stairs down to the beach, and center of town is less than a mile away. The house has a well-equipped kitchen and a grill/porch for outdoor dining. The hot tub is well maintained and all of the rooms are very comfortable with lots of nice spaces to explore and hang out. Nice layout for privacy and views of Haystack Rock. Make sure you have time to explore the area-- we stayed four nights and would have loved to stay longer.
The driveway is very steep and tricky to back into garage but we managed it. The TV/cable system and central air were not easy to figure out-- make sure you bring along a teenager and/or ask for help.
This is a truly amazing place for a large group. There are several vertical layers so people can be as connected or separate as they want. Great views of Haystack Rock from every room. My whole family wants to come back.
The house was ideal for a three generational gathering. Lots to do from 3 to 75 year old "kids". It was a great vacation for us.
I don't know whether to recommend or not.
Pros: Perfect location for lots of views of and trips to haystack rock. Big house, great for kids who can handle stairs. Worked well for two families, kids had a great time but grab the upstairs master if you can. Most of house in great shape, generally clean and big enough to give 4 adults and 5 children 4-10 more than enough space. Well equipped newer kitchen.
Cons: Quality of maintenance/upkeep not quite there to justify premium price. Downstairs suite very tired. Some exterior decking rot. Window issues throughout, some wouldn't close, some of these insulated with plastic bags; others wouldn't open and/or had missing handles.
Niggles: Some missing glasses etc. Having to go through the house to get to the garage door opener was annoying, especially as there is a keypad. It was quite a long walk to town for the kids, and there are no raised sidewalks on that portion of hemlock and lots of drivers concentrating on haystack rock, so it was a little hairy at times.
We appreciate your feedback and will look into those maintenance issues that you have brought to our attention. We hope you made wonderful memories while staying with us!
Our large family was very comfortable in this beautiful and spacious home. The view has to be the best in Cannon Beach!
Great location and property. I give it a ten
Loved the location of this house.... beautiful views from every room. Plenty of room for our group to spread out and be comfortable. Kids loved the hot tub.
We've been coming here for years, always in March. One of our beloved friends & classmates from Boise state passed away this year, so in her honor we hosted a memorial on the beach. She loved this house, the beach, and the entire town of cannon beach. Someday I hope to retire here...I must say the house is always clean, the owner & staff are beyond kind & accomadating. I couldnt ask for more out of VRBO & Vacasa...thank you as always for the unforgettable memories, easy check in & directions, and friendly staff. Loyal customers for life.
Tyler & my beloved family of friends
Thank you so much for sharing your thoughtful review with us. We are honored that your friends chose to come back to this beautiful home for such an important event. We hope that you'll continue to visit and hope to continue to live up to your expectations.
For as many people as you can fit in this house and the proximity to Haystack rockâ€¦ Not to mention the fabulous viewâ€¦ The hot tubâ€¦ The comfy bedsâ€¦ And all the places, nooks & crannies to hide your friends, family and belongings, and let's not forget the gorgeous very functional kitchenâ€“ you must stay here at least once for a very special vacation!
We were only here for two nights but wish we could've stayed longer. The house is amazing, very we'll laid out with stunning beach views from nearly every room. The hot tub is a very nice feature and also provides a good beach view. We would highly recommend this house.
Couldn't ask for a better location in Cannon Beach. Excellent views from every room and walking distance to town. House was clean and very well appointed. The common area was open and quite comfortable. Bedrooms are all on different levels making each private and cozy. Would definitely rent again if back in Cannon Beach.
This house is the perfect place for a large family getaway. The layout of the rooms allows everyone ro have their own space. The master bedroom is gorgeous and the view can't be beat. Located right across the street from Haystack Rock, the beach is juat steps away.
We loved this house and will return.
Our extended famly had a fantastic time over a long weekend. This house offered plenty of space for time together. With the bedrooms and dens on all different levels the house also offers plenty of space to have time alone. The views from every room of the beach and water are picture perfect!
We had a wonderful time. Kitchen was fully stocked and views were fantastic. Very comfortable house. Great for kids. We're already talking about renting this house next year.
Couldn't ask for more. Would recommend and will return!
Views from this house are spectacular. While it is a mile walk to downtown it is very close to the tide pools at haystack rock, so the location was perfect for us. This is a big beautiful house.
The best thing about the house is the fabulous view of the ocean from all rooms. Also, we were so glad to have plenty of beds available for our large family. We had a wonderful vacation!
Large common areas accommodated group gatherings and the multiple levels provided good separation when more private times were desired. Hot tub was great and enjoyed by all various days.
We very much enjoyed our brief stay at Haystack! Great view and great layout in the house! House is located where folks stop along the coast to take photos of Haystack Rock! Only complaint -- our stay was too short.
Loved the location as well as the house. The house was extremely comfortable and had multiple levels and areas affording each couple privacy. There is a nice window seat to view the ocean as well as a "cuddle chair" that is so comfy. The house comes well equipped with the necessities for cooking. Be prepared: There are lots of stairs into the house as well as with the levels of the house. The driveway is short and steep - scraped the bumper of my rental car!
All and all, it was a great rental.
The house was very clean and amply supplied with all the amenities. It was great. It was like I lived there.
my entire family was blown away with the beauty of the home and view. After a death in the family it was a much needed getaway. we really wished we had gotten 3 nights instead of two! Everything was perfect!
Great for large family or friends. Everything right there. House is like being in a tree house, fun for kids and adults. Easy access to the beach across the street.
We recently stayed at the Haystack rental--for our family of 12. It was perfect, not only a lovely house with great architectural bones, but also very well furnished, especially the kitchen. There were plenty of towels and soaps for every occasion! The location was perfect with the beach and steps right across the street. It was easy to go back and forth with kids. We would love to return again! Thanks for making our stay so pleasant.
The steep driveway I did not care for. One of our vehicles bottomed out on the driveway coming out of the garage. We also had a little difficulty with the door lock passcode. Other than those 2 things, everything else was excellent!
We were a party of 6 ranging in age from 2 to 72. Great house, lots of space, beachy comfortable. Fabulous views, easy walk to town. One caution, probably
not the best for anyone with mobility issues. Lots of stairs. Stairs to beach right
across the street, but very steep. Driveway very steep. Two year old loved
the hidden playroom.
Great place for a large group, the layout of the house is fabulous. Loved that we could bring our dog. The location is wonderful, right across the street from the beach and Haystack Rock.
I took my family, kids, son in laws and grand kids, ten in all and had an amazing time. The house is huge and the view is amazing. Haystack rock fills the big picture window. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a place that accommodates up to twelve people. We are defiantly staying here again.
my family of 5 stayed here in January 2013 and had a wonderful time. the house is so big and has many wonderful rooms and nooks and crannies to explore. we didn't have young kids with us but this house would be Kid Heaven! there was even a loft with tons of games and a secret play cubby in the basement! it does have a lot of stairs but we did fine even with a disabled person who walks with a walker. it was extremely comfortable and relaxing.
a couple of teeny suggestions to make it even nicer: it would have been nice to have a couple of Duraflame-type logs on hand to build a fire right away, and a lot of times there's a bottle of cooking oil in the pantry but there wasn't here, so we had to get back in the car and go to the store before we could start a fire or cook the food we brought from home. but very minor points! we loved this house and recommend it highly!
We held a memorial gathering here. Friends came from Boston, Colorado and Atlanta and all declared that the setting was perfect, the house and accommodations well-suited for four families, and we couldn't have asked for anything more.
Great views. As the weather was not very good it was great to be able to watch the ocean in comfort. There was lots of space. Each group in our party felt like they had their own private space while there was plenty of space to be together. It was a very enjoyable time.
Thank you for your wonderful review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay, please visit us again.
This was a wonderul place for our family reunion! We had 8 people arrive from all across the country. The spacious and well-appointed house was perfectly suited for all of us. The multi-level layout is very conducive to all be together or have areas to yourself. There is not a bad view from anywhere in the house. You are right in front of Haystack Rock and the Needles, with beach access stairs right across the street. We enjoyed walks for miles on the beach, fires and smore making in the fireplace, the large hot tub on the deck, making wonderful dinners in the large kitchen, watching family tapes we brought on the large TV in the living room, reading, shopping the quaint downtown and more. We would highly recommend this vacation property.
Nicer property with wonderful view. the driveway is problematic but not much can be done with that. Otherwise a most enjoyable stay!!!
We had family reunion for a week at this house. Everyone had such a great time. Our main concern was location. We wanted to be close enough to walk to this great little town and the beach and also have good views. This home provided all of that and more. There was even a shower to rinse off our dog and our feet in the garage! The kitchen was very well equipped. A fun week with lots of good memories!
Can't say enough about the house as do my kids.The grand children were so excited about the little play area under ths stairs and the loft area.Went there not expecting a palace but was blown away by the view and the total feeling of being at home.Would recommend this property to anyone.It was a great place to celebrate my 60th birthday with my family.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Haystack Rock house! Thank you for having it so well equipped!
Great beach house for extended family. Wonderful views throughout the house. Many private areas for relaxing and visiting separately from the main living area. Our grandkids loved the little play room tucked away off the lower stairs. The house has lots of stairs, but that is to be expected since it is built on a steep hillside. It has a magical feel to it, with all the different nooks and levels and there is so much space to go and hide if you want. I'm sure we will be back!
This is a beautiful home. Loved the location and all of the uniqueness of the home.
The only disappoint with this property was that it advertised cable TV, but the only TV with cable was in the living room (very limited cable) and it did not include ESPN - we were there over the college bowl games (major bummer! and would never have thought to ask if cable TV included ESPN) and the TV's in the 2 bedrooms had no cable and basically useless. The location, beach access and views are absolutely FABULOUS!
Thank you for your review. We passed your feedback on to the owner, and he has expanded the channel lineup to include ESPN. Thanks again and we are glad you had a great time!
My husband and I and our two dogs loved this place. Every attention to detail was provided. Cannon Beach is a quaint small town, a "Carmel of the Pacific Northwest."
The beaches were beautiful and very dog friendly. We will stay again, maybe for a month next time...
