Lovely and bright ocean view home with a deck and jetted tub!

This ocean-view three bedroom Arch Cape vacation rental home has a whimsical lighthouse theme throughout. From mosaics to stained glass to the artwork on the walls, you'll be treated to images of these historic maritime structures. And, of course, there's also the ocean views, cozy wood-burning stove, WiFi, and a jetted tub to enjoy!

Inside the home, upstairs large two-story windows offer a view of the Pacific Ocean in the distance. Stay nice and dry while you watch a dramatic winter storm or the sunset on a chilly evening. There are comfortable couches to settle back on for a night of talking, reading by the fire, or watching a DVD or videotape on the flat screen TV. And if you forget your favorite movies from home, don't worry, there's a DVD and a VHS library to pick from here. And in the morning, there's no better spot than in the rocking chair, tea in hand, viewing out at the water.

The efficiently designed kitchen has shiny black countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a number of chef-worthy gadgets. Use the blender to make fruit smoothies and if you need your morning coffee buzz, the coffee maker is always on call as well.

At the sunny dining room table, you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner with a view out on the deck. On nice afternoons, you'll want to come back from a stop at Ecola Seafoods in nearby Cannon Beach, fire up the gas grill, and have an outdoor seafood feast for dinner.

On the main (upper) level are two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, attached bathroom with shower, and a nice window seat for late night reading or TV watching. The second bedroom, also upstairs, has two twin beds. Downstairs is the third bedroom, nice and private with a queen bed. All are comfortable and cozy with their own TVs and colorful ocean-themed accessories. And since there are three bathrooms (one with a luxurious jetted tub), everyone can have their own space for getting ready in the morning. Altogether, this lovely Oregon Coast vacation rental can easily accommodate up to six guests.

Other amenities here include a downstairs game room with an air hockey table, another entertainment center for movies, and an Xbox 360 for some digital gaming action! There's also a washer and dryer, and even beach chairs that you can bring down to the sand for a day of relaxing on the shore. Best of all, beach access is only one block west from the house. After a short walk you can stroll along the surf, build sandcastles, or enjoy a picnic down on the beach.

The small community of Arch Cape boasts a beautiful, uncrowded beach, yet is only two miles away from bustling Canon Beach. With the best of both worlds, you're close enough to spend the days browsing galleries and shops of that popular town, but when return back to your Arch Cape vacation home, you'll have a long stretch of quiet beach to explore.

Hiking opportunities are right nearby at Oswald State Park to the south and Hug Point to the north, and just seven and a half miles away is Ecola State Park. If you want a less crowded town experience than Cannon Beach, sleepy Manzanita is only 10 miles south. Here, there are a handful of galleries to explore, a book store, coffee house, and a handful of restaurants, including a pizzeria and a wine bar.

For a family getaway or a retreat with friends, this Arch Cape vacation rental is a great choice! Come enjoy its lighthouse theme and ocean views while you discover this sleepy little stretch on the North Oregon Coast.

The place was spotless when we arrived. It was very well stocked. The kitchen had everything we needed. They even had logs and everything all set up and ready to go in the fireplace if we wanted to have a fire. The whirlpool tub was really nice. It was only a short walk to the beach. The beach was private and nice. We were able to watch the sunset every night from the deck or inside through the huge windows. We would definitely recommend this place and will probably stay here again during one of our annual trips to the oregon coast.

The house was perfect for our needs. It was very clean and everything detailed out on specifics. Just a short walk to get to the beach and a short drive to Cannon Beach and Seaside.
Katherina E. Jun 2019
Its private, spacious, has everything you need. Even on rainy days, you can stay in and enjoy the house itself. Wanted me to move to the beach...
Kimberly G. Mar 2019
The view is amazing! Short walk to the beach! Everything you need to have a perfect getaway
Gabriela V. Nov 2018
Used the house for about 5 days for my sisters birthday getaway from the city. It was a perfect location for us. Away from the crowd but also about 15 min drive to near by stores and attractions. It really does have everything you need to be a home away from home. Would love to go back some day. And definately recommend this house!

We just love it!!

Great quiet location just minutes from Cannon Beach activities and restaurants. Easy travel to Astoria and the northern wine country.
Debby V. Aug 2018
The home was lovely and exactly as depicted online. It was extremely quiet with a little road noise from the highway. This home is not on the beach side of the highway but across on the other side. It's a very easy and safe walk across the highway. Took 2-3 min to walk to the beach. The home is nestled in a little clearing of the forest with just 3 homes. A deer came by several times to visit during our week stay. Home was well laid out and very comfortable. The only issue we encountered was the frig was running too cold and froze our fruit. Before we arrived, we received an email from a local person from Vacasa who was our contact for any issues/questions. It was wonderful to be able to text/call this person, who responded in a very reasonable time. He was able to direct us to the closest grocery stores upon our arrival and provided suggestions for the frig. I greatly appreciated this personal touch!!!

This house has 2 major problems:
1) It is located just above the highway. There is no room in the house where you cannot hear highway noise (I searched), and there is no time of day or night when you will not hear cars and trucks (even in the middle of the night). Large trucks will vibrate the house. If you are the sort of person who can just ignore loud traffic or you listen to music all the time then you will be OK; if you want a vacation house where you hear only the waves and the wind in the trees, then this is not your house.
2) When we visited in July (2018) there was an incredibly strong smell of gasoline that filled the house from the garage (which is located underneath the house). It appeared to come from the owner’s boat. We called Vacasa twice and couldn’t find any obvious leaks. In the morning the smell was eye-watering. Finally, we kept the garage doors open and a fan on whenever we were home, and just opened up the entire upstairs in the morning to air it out (the smell accumulates over night). If the owner has addressed this problem then you can ignore this.

The reason that I gave the house a 3 instead of 1 is that the house itself (ignoring the major problems above) is really quite nice. It is newly built, in great shape, has a fun layout, beautiful paintings on the walls, and the best appointed kitchen I’ve ever stayed in. Arch Cape is a lot of fun: the beach has a lot of character, there are plenty of beach access points, and it doesn’t get nearly as many people as the main Cannon Beach ones do. If you play Pokemon or have Google maps you can use it to find all the hidden little paths that snake through connecting the streets! If the owner addresses the smell and you don’t care about traffic, then I would definitely recommend this house.

The only additional comment about the house is they need to add a wifi router to the upstairs. The current one is located in the bottom floor and coverage is spotty upstairs.
Manager response:
We apologize for the gasoline smell and were able to discover the source and address it. Thank you!
Lynn B. Jun 2018
The house was very clean and comfortable. Sleeps 6 and has 3 baths. We did not use all the space. All the rooms were spacious but the beds were a bit on the soft side. We will stay again, thank you for sharing your wonderful home.
Laurel H. May 2018
Beautiful home, super comfortable beds, fully-stocked kitchen and baths. We had absolutely everything we needed!
Melissa A. Apr 2018
Beautiful spot on the east side of 101, but set back a little so the road noise isn't bad. Great views of the ocean. Comfortable beds, a nice place to spend a week getaway. Easy ocean access, we walked every day on the beach. We enjoyed the wood stove too! Definitely would return.
Debbie K. Mar 2018
This home was very comfortable and clean. The kitchen was stocked with quality dishware, pots and pans as well as glassware. There were four adults on this trip and we all LOVED the house. The view is a real bonus and we had weather that was clear enough for us to be able to enjoy it both days. We would definitely rent this home again!
Anne M. Jan 2018
Five gals celebrating a birthday~stayed for 4 nights. It was a delightful place to stay. Quiet and clean. Fit our group's needs/wants perfectly.
Aaron R. Dec 2017
Very clean home within easy walking distance to the beach. Wouldn't hesitate to reserve again!
Wesley B. Sep 2017
The house was clean and beautiful. Can wait to stay again.
Damon D. Jul 2017
Just great.
Valerie M. Jun 2017
loved the home, clean had just about everything you needed for your stay and the management company was made everything from check-in to check-out very easy..
Colleen P. May 2017
Our family really enjoyed our stay in this comfortable home.
The soaking tub was used by everyone at one time or another, very relaxing...
Playing Air Hockey was a hoot! comfortable furnishings and kitchen had plenty of pans and dishes/glasses. Nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of town.
Debra K. May 2017
Comfy bedrooms with plenty of bathrooms. Convenient to Cannon Beach and Manzanita.
Cheryti H. Mar 2017
This is a lovely property that is very comfortable for six people. The location is ideal. You can hear the ocean at night, with big windows and a second story porch. The furnishings are comfortable, and the directions are clear. I loved the property and will come again. If you have asthma/allegies I would give this a B+, which is an excellent rating from me. The downstairs is a bit musty and the laundry detergent is strong so bring your own pillow case. Otherwise no strong cleaners or fragrances. If you don't have asthma I rate it an A+ and highly recommend you try this place out. The local tide pools on Cannon Beach are amazing, and the seafood is fabulous.
Anne M. Jan 2017
This property worked out great for our group of ladies. We wanted a nice working kitchen to prepare our meals, enough room to spread out, a quiet location, and an inviting home. It was all met at the Griguhn's Lighthouse Lookout. Our stay was very enjoyable.
Bridget P. Jan 2017
We loved this home for 2 couples. The house was very clean and well stocked. Beds were comfortable and heated blankets were a bonus. Updated furniture made house feel like a home. Location to Cannon Beach is wonderful. No complaints - we wouldn't definitely come back!
Todd C. Nov 2016
Lots of movies and Xbox games for the kids and the view from the front windows was great. Lots of storms when we were there, but we also had great days to spend in the beach. The house has basic kitchen baking dishes, so it was a but cumbersome to cook a holiday meal. But other than that, the place was amazing. Will definitely come back here.
Stephen S. Oct 2016
We went to this beautiful home during a huge storm. The house was perfect and clean! We were able to enjoy the storm from right next to a fire in the living room. Great job again Vacasa! See you next time!
Steve W. Sep 2016
Nice house and very beautiful area. Only downside is the proximity to hiway 101.
Larry S. May 2016
Good experience. Kitchen was well equipped. House was very well sound proofed.
Part of the garage could be used. There was a sink in the garage. Driveway was very
adequate for 3 cars. Lots of windows and natural light in the house.
Julie W. Apr 2016
The house was well-appointed and comfortable. Great place from which to go exploring - close to Hug Point, Oswald West, and Cannon Beach. Hwy 101 is a bit noisy, but for the price, it cannot be beat! Our family met my in-laws and brother-in-law at the house. We all had a great time.
Steven K. Mar 2016
Great house, well kept. It is clear that the owners treat this place like their own. They do not just have a rental place. It is well cared for, well stocked, and just comfortable over all. Arch cape is a nice area with little traffic and close enough to Cannon Beach for eating, shopping, and supplies. The only drawback is that this house is directly on 101, but at this end of town there is not too much traffic.
Kim W. Feb 2016
This house is lovely, it's spacious, clean, has all the extras such as hair dryers, soap, shampoo and conditioner, which is not something one would expect. The bedrooms are perfect with soft comfortable beds, extra bedding and electric blankets. The kitchen is well stocked with all the dishes and cookware you may need including a toaster, coffee pot, and blender. The games, movies and air hockey table were great for the kids. The short walk to through the neighborhood across the street provides easy access to the beach. We would definitely recommend this property.
Janice B. Oct 2015
The property was beautiful and everything the description said it was. The view was lovely and the walk to the beach not strenuous at all. Although located on the east side of Hwy 101, there was surprisingly very little traffic noise. The only concern - albeit minor - was hauling luggage and food supplies up the stairs to the living area . Other than that, I highly recommend this property and would definitely stay there again.
Carli C. May 2015
I had 4 friends come from Utah and we stayed in the house for 4 days and 3 nights. The pictures online don't do the house justice, because it was really clean and even more spacious than expected! We enjoyed the beds, especially the twins and the queen, the pillows and beds themselves were SO comfortable! The only thing I'd change are the couch and love seat, they could use some updating, they weren't the most comfortable. We had a great time, and would definitely stay at The Grighun's lighthouse again! Thank you!
Jill G. Apr 2015
This was a perfect house for us and my parents visiting from WI. My 4 year old and 11 month old were very comfortable here. They loved finding some surprise toys in the closet and the great Disney collection of movies in the kids bedroom. I loved the kitchen!! It was Nicely updated and perfect for making family size meals. We had a lovely time and will happily rent this property again.
Larena K. Dec 2014
We loved the property location and amenities. We walked to the beach, played board games, air hocke, and enjoyed a fire each night of our stay. The home was comfortable and clean. We would stay again and my six year old niece said this house was perfect!
Laura J. Oct 2014
Beautiful home. Enough space for 2 families. Nice game room downstairs. Very quiet location. Not very close to the beach and just a bit of a view from the dining room. Everything was sparkling clean and new! Very comfortable beds with down comforters and pillows that were wonderful.
Dana B. Jul 2014
I normally don't take the time to write reviews, but I had to for this one. The house was soooo beautiful and clean. The pictures don't even do it justice. It is so much better in person. We loved every minute of it and were so sad to leave. They had really cute signs around the house that gave you instructions on different things but it looked like they were part of the decor. I had a few questions when I got there and called Vacasa and they were so nice and helpful. I couldn't have asked for a better vacation! I highly recommend this property and this company.
Susan S. Jun 2014
very clean, & spacious beach home; not right on the beach, but the master bedroom does have a little view of the ocean & a wonderful deck that accommodates more than a few people. loved tvs in each room.....& the homeowner made sure that you are well taken care of, including the simple things of shampoo, soap, hair dryer, kleenex boxes, lots of fluffy towels, plus laundry detergent & cling free sheets & all the kitchen items you would need to cook to stay in. really enjoyed our 7-day, 7-nite stay (3 of us), but would have accommodated double that many people in reality. enjoyed the air hockey table,,,,,& my bro liked the jetted tub...thanks for a lovely time in a beautiful home.
Cathy M. May 2014
I was so impressed with the house and how well it was exactly as advertised on line. The house was very new, and with well stocked with all the amenities that you would ever need, movies, music and a great air hockey game, beautiful housewares and much more. With the no smoking policy it was nice to have a clean smelling home! I will definitely use this company again and I'm looking forward to another wonderful vacation that they provided.
Manager response:
