A cozy Cape Cod oceanfront house w/ sweeping ocean views - steps from the beach

There's no better retreat than a cozy stay at the Oregon Coast, and this oceanfront house is perfect. Boasting sweeping ocean views from every room, and a flight of stairs leading directly to the beach, it’s a perfect opportunity to clear out a cluttered mind. It is a place families and friends have created lasting memories since Windwhistle has been in the family for over 60 years.

An open beach lies between the bookends of Tillamook Head and Hug Point and stretches for miles. Relax on an extra-large southern-facing deck for private sunbathing, playing games, or having breakfast in the sun. Play bocce ball on the beach or on the front or back lawn. Have evening bonfires on the beach right in front of the house. Bodysurf and jump the waves.

Close enough to walk to Cannon Beach (about 1 ½ miles) to enjoy all the amenities (live theater, fully stocked grocery stores, a great fresh seafood store, gourmet restaurants, lots of coffee shops) and yet far enough away to enjoy the peace off the touristy beaten path. It is at the end of a dead-end lane with a forested lot behind the back yard.

Gather near the wood-burning fireplace in the main living room to play games, read a novel, or look out the window at the rolling surf. You might pick a movie from the VHS collection or put your favorite DVD on the flatscreen cable TV to wait out the rain or surf the free WiFi. The kitchen comes fully equipped with cooking and baking staples including an extensive herb and spice drawer. The antique harvest table and bar stools provide plenty of seating for everyone. A gas grill (not available for use in the winter) on the deck is perfect for cooking up that fresh fish you catch. You can take care of any laundry using the private washer/dryer. Located on the first floor, the private master suite boasts an old fashioned soaking tub - perfect for relaxing after a long day of frolicking on the beach.

Make your next beach vacation special and bring the whole family together in this cozy, oceanfront house - book today! A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

Loved this house. We had five adults and it was perfect for our needs. Only setback was the dishwasher wasn’t working at all so spent a lot of time hand washing. You can’t beat the location and the view. Just soak it all in.

Perfect location, comfortable accomodations
Lynda D. Aug 2018
Wonderful location and very well stocked. Great kitchen and bathrooms. Upstairs bedrooms a bit stuffy as just under the roof, bedding upstairs a bit paltry.
Manager response:
We appreciate this feedback and will get a fan upstairs to help with air circulation. Thank you!

The home and setting were above expectations. A few stairs directly to an uncrowded beach.
Robyn S. Jun 2018
Loved the location and all the supplies we needed were in the house. Pots, pans, hair dryer, etc. Just wish the windows in the family room opened so we could get a sea breeze. We even stayed an extra night. No crowds in front of our house -- had the beach all to ourselves!!!! Will definitely come back.
Glenn R. Jun 2018
Really loved the oceanfront location, with incredible picture window views and a great feeling of privacy in close proximity to the main attractions in Cannon Beach. Direct access to the beach was wonderful.
Krista M. Apr 2018
The location of this house is GREAT! The views are spectacular and getting to the beach is a breeze with the shared staircase.
Malia C. Aug 2017
We absolutely enjoyed every minute at Windwhistle. The house is in a great location on the beach close enough to town for shopping and fun but far enough to really enjoy the coast! It is also conveniently stocked with the necessities which made it easy to relax and enjoy our time there. The view from the house is perfect, from the mist on the beach in the morning to the sunsets every evening.

Why do people rate this as five stars? Quite simply if there is a better location in all of Cannon Beach to rent, we never saw it. Absolutely perfect spot at the end of a lovely cul-de-sac and just far enough south of Haystack Rock so that you feel like you have your own beach. For a beach house it was very accommodating. It doesn't have top of the line floors, appliances, or counters but we did not expect that for a beach house. It was very clean and what they do have is up to date. The kitchen was well stocked and we have never stayed anywhere else where the spice drawer was so complete. We would definitely stay here again if the occasion ever arises. Finally Barb, the owner, was great to work with and went out of her way to make sure we had a good stay.

We did not really know what to expect as we decided on Cannon Beach by following links on the internet, and had never been to coastal Oregon. What a beautiful, joyous surprise! Windwhistle was amazing. The house fit all five of us very comfortably - plenty of beds and bathrooms, all in fantastic condition. The home was stocked with clean towels and sheets, and the kitchen made it easy to prepare meals. not that we did too much given the large variety of restaurants in Cannon Beach. My favorite things - sleeping with the window open, hearing the ocean at night, enjoying the cool breezes. Sleeping late, enjoying a cup of coffee with the charming dutch door open - looking at the view (you can see haystack rock from the house) as we planned what beautiful park we were going to see that day. Building bonfires each night and cooking hot dogs over the fire, walks at low tide all the way down to Haystack and seeing other fires on the beach. We were recovering as a family from a year of sadness - cancer, death of grandparents and parents - and could not have asked for a better place to find peace. It was super easy to find, fantastic location - close to everything - quiet, lovely, well appointed. Cannot wait to go back!
