Situated in the hills in the heart of Pacific City, this abode is close to the beach, bays, and rivers! Renowned for its incredible views of the ocean as well as famous landmarks like Cape Kiwanda and Haystack Rock, this town has everything you need to get to know the Oregon Coast. There are plenty of places within walking distance to wine and dine, rent out equipment, or simply enjoy the sights and sounds!
The main living area is spacious and well-lit with huge windows lining the wall. There's a gorgeous gas fireplace in the center of the room with a flatscreen TV on top, so everyone can enjoy their favorite cable show or put in a DVD. There are luxurious, La-Z-Boy couches and armchairs surrounding the glass-top coffee table, and there's even a desk in the corner that would be ideal for getting some work done.
Six people can sit at the dining table on the other side of the room, and the full kitchen opens up to both the living and dining areas, creating a relaxed atmosphere. With four spots at the breakfast bar, granite countertops, and stainless steel amenities, the kitchen is a fantastic place to prepare a tasty meal or simply hang out and chat!
There are three bedrooms in this home, each with a queen-size bed, cozy covers, and ample space to spread out, so up to six people (eight maximum) can comfortably stay here. There's one full bathroom on the main level and a second upstairs - each with fresh tiles, beautiful countertops, and excellent lighting.
The second living area on the top floor is an awesome place for entertainment and relaxation - you will find an enormous leather L-shaped couch, arm chairs, and a large flatscreen to congregate around. Pull up a stool to the wet bar, or test your skills on the pool table!
There's a beautiful balcony that overlooks the surrounding hillside, as well as a secluded deck and patio furniture out back where you can enjoy a few beers or a delicious dinner. Since the home has a private washer and dryer, you can pack light for your vacation, and with WiFi and a DVD library, there's always something to do around the house!
Pacific City is a popular tourist destination for several reasons. The surrounding cliffs and rugged hillsides provide incredible views of the Pacific Ocean and the Oregon Coast, plus there are tons of state parks and recreation areas nearby. Cape Kiwanda is only two miles from this home where you'll find stunning views of Pacific City's Haystack Rock, hiking trails, tide pools, and places to beach comb.
There are tons of hiking trails near Pacific City including the Cascade Head trail, which is a local favorite. Bob Straub Park to the south has access to the beach and the Big Nestucca river, and there's tons of flora and fauna to check out at the Nestucca Bay Wildlife Refuge. There are also many popular seafood restaurants in town as well as unique boutiques, plus it's easy to rent out some surfing, fishing, or paddle boarding equipment!
The house was beautiful! Very comfortable furniture to relax in after a big meal! The kids had a great time in the huge rec room. Would have been perfect if the washing machine worked,but it didn't, we actually were counting on it, because after playing on the beach we really needed it. Hope they got it fixed for the next group of people
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We apologize the washing machine was not working during your stay. Our local management team is working to get this fixed for future guests. We do hope you will allow us another chance to host you in the future.

The home was exactly as advertised . It was clean and fully stocked with everything you would need for a weekend on the beach thank you
Jesus S.Jul 2019
House is very spacious and a calm quiet neighborhood. Very close to the town and beach. The only thing was that the day to take out the garbage was not made clear in the house information binder.
Chris B.Jul 2019

Booked a birthday fishing getaway for the husband and 3 sons. They loved it...well equipped kitchen, roomy, plenty of amenities, and the location was perfect. They booked a fishing excursion with a boat captain across the way...and caught their limit in bass, rockfish, and salmon. All around perfect fishing getaway!

We loved the house! We were in town for our son's wedding and were able to have 3 couples stay together. We were going to have a 4th couple because the house said it slept 8, however, it would have been on couches and didn't work out for us. Very nice having two living spaces so people could break away.
Kristen O.May 2019
Loved this spot. Fantastic views from upper level living area. Three comfortable bedrooms And fully updated interior with beautiful antiques in several spots. Kitchen had all we needed. Walking distance to a fantastic Mexican restaurant. Deer visited each morning and evening. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Marci U.Sep 2018
We had a great time and wonderful stay! There was more than enough room for our family of four! The deck was very pleasant and had a great view! Highly recommended!
Angie E.Sep 2018
We loved this house! Very open and clean, lots of room and we liked the separate living areas, we could send the kids upstairs to play pool while us adults were downstairs. It was also very quiet which was nice when sleeping.
Daniel W.Aug 2018
Clean, warm and well laid out. This rental had everything for our group of friends and family to enjoy pacific city! We loved the pool table and games provided. Within walking distance of many great eating spots. Would love to stay again in the near future!

The house was very nice and clean
Dylan B.Aug 2018
Great access to downtown and a short drive to the beach
Alison F.Jul 2018
The house is nicely decorated - - elegant, but still comfortable. The best part is the view! We could see the sun setting behind the Haystack rock, and we enjoyed a fabulous view of the July 4 fireworks from our deck, away from the crowds and noise.
The beds were comfortable, there were plenty of sheets and towels, the kitchen had everything we needed, and it's an easy 10" walk to the beach! You can even see a little bit of the ocean from the top floor of the house.
There are basically two separate living rooms, each with views. We have 3 teenagers, so they were really happy to have the top floor as their space, while the adults hung out one floor below.
We explored up and down the coast - - it's a short drive south to Newport, or north to Tillamook, which has an awesome tour of the cheese factory (and free samples!), and close to hiking and waterfalls in every direction!
The host was even so kind as to arrange perfect weather for us - - but can't guarantee that for everyone....
Patricia H.Apr 2018
My family and I LOVED this home! I recommend it to everyone. Thank you Vacasa for helping make our vacation memorable and comfortable.
Gairy F.Mar 2018
Our family had an incredible time. The bonus room was just what the doctor ordered for a rainy day. The views from the many windows were spectacular!! Can't wait to plan our next vacation.
Alex M.Feb 2018
Great place for a get together. Beach is only minutes away
JOEL B.Jan 2018
We loved our stay here. It was a beautiful home and was a great place to watch the storms pass through. Very clean and comfortable I would definitely stay here again.
Nicole E.Jan 2018
This home was perfectly suited for our family. We live games so having the upstairs as a rec room was fantastic. And there was plenty of lounging space! The views from the windows were great. Espeically the setting sun as we ate our evening meal. We will keep this home in mind when we visit pacific city again!
Cindy P.Nov 2017
Shore Thing was a beautiful home, as my husband and I shared Thanksgiving week with our Son, a mechanic for Toyota (locally), our daughter, a realtor team manager in Vancouver, Wa, and our other daughter came , on leave, from the Navy , from Meredian Naval Aviation Base, in Meredian, Mississippi.
We had a blast going over to SandLake with our quads and sand rail to ride.
Molly M.Oct 2017
The house was perfect for a group of us celebrating a 50th birthday. Plenty of hangout space, comfortable bedrooms, enough bath space and the kitchen had everything we needed to create a birthday feast. Close enough to walk to the beach but not in the thick of everything. Loved the games, TV/movie options and the pool table. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
Ryan O.Sep 2017
Beautiful home and great views and space for big families. Pool table and fire places were GREAT features. We will stay here again asap! Surf competition and the Pelican Pub were so cool!
Eloisa W.Aug 2017
This is a great house and location. Our housekeeping issues were addressed quickly and efficiently (partial rolls of toilet paper in both baths, overflowing outdoor garbage receptacle)
There are 3 levels with lots of stairs, causing frustration if you need to retrieve something you have forgotten or (most importantly) have large suitcases that need to be hauled to the top floor bedrooms.
This is a spacious home with two large gathering spaces. A great bonus is the house is very sound proof to other parts of the home. However, there is a small, nearby airport that does get loud with the small planes arriving/departing.
Oscar P.Jul 2017
Great spot not too far from beach. The house was beautiful and clean
Best place to stay in Pacific City. It was a great location to watch the Fourth of July fireworks
Whitney H.Jun 2017
We went for the weekend to celebrate my 40th birthday. Overall the house was great, very nice condition, exactly as the pictures and description. We had a great weekend. The only issue we had was the a/c unit was broken. They were very responsive and came out to look at it, but it was a 90 degree day on the coast and it just didn't fully resolve for a couple of reasons. If it's going to be hot on the coast, maybe find a different house, unless the a/c unit gets updated.
We apologize that we were unable to resolve the air conditioner issue during this reservation. The air conditioner has been repaired.
Jim C.Jun 2017
Besides the things to do in Pacific City this central to Tillamook north and Lincoln City/Newport south. Lots of sight seeing trips. Even saw whales.
MICHELLE T.Sep 2016
This place is simply gorgeous. The 3 levels of breathtaking views are serene and relaxing. The house if fully stocked with everything you might need, and it truly feels like home the minute you walk into it. I have no complaints at all. My parents, who stayed with me, couldn't stop talking about how much they absolutely loved the home.
Leah M.Sep 2016
This home is very comfortable, clean and up to date. Just a few minutes from the beach, we loved the open floor plan it made mingling with our friends and family easy. I highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a coast rental!
Andrew C.Sep 2016
Good: House is beautiful, beautiful floors and kitchen, nice master bathroom and furniture. Feels new. Close to downtown - you can walk to the beach or to various shops.
Medium: No ocean view (unless you go upstairs and there is no haze, then you can see a thin strip of ocean above the dunes). You look down on semi-industrial land, and the sounds of machinery and clanking start early in the morning. There is also an airstrip, which is cool at first, but the coming and going of the airplanes can be quite disruptive.
Bad: (As of Aug 31, 2016) No AC (broken and it gets hot in the house if it's at all hot outside). Lower fireplace doesn't work. No hairdryer. Expect limited kitchen supplies, and what there is to be scratched (the frypans are all scratched up) or dirty (I guess no effort is expended checking if the previous residents actually cleaned anything, so you end up cleaning things that have been put away with a crust of dirt on them). All of the linens have been washed with very smelly fabric softener. If you don't use this yourself you may find yourself rewashing everything to try to get the very strong smell out of the house.
Called Vacasa several times - got an immediate response from the main office, but absolutely nothing from the local property manager. When the repair guy came around because of the fireplace he seemed confused and had not heard about our other complaints about the AC and hair dryer. I have had this problem with Vacasa before - I think their property managers are stretched really thin.
We are disappointed to see that this stay was not more enjoyable. We have asked the housekeepers to more thoroughly clean and organize the kitchenware between each visit, and all of the old pots and pans have been replaced. The air conditioner and fireplace are scheduled for repair and should be taken care of very soon. We have also purchased a hair dryer for the home so that guests do not need to be inconvenienced by packing their own.
Lauren H.Aug 2016
We gathered here for a weekend to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. This was a perfect house for keeping ourselves entertained. We appreciated the nice cable package on both TVs (the Olympics were on!), the pool table, and the proximity to the beach. I also very much appreciated all the extra towels and how clean the house was. Thank you for allowing us to stay here!
Kerri C.Jul 2016
I searched for days online to rent a home for our family vacation to the Oregon Coast and I picked the perfect one, The Shore Thing. It was as good as in the pictures and super clean. My family loves it and I got kudos the entire trip for the great house! With 23 and 20 year old sons getting kudos is a big plus and hard to do. They loved having their own space on the 3rd floor with the pool table, amazing ocean view and their own rooms. The fridge and big screen tv got points too! We will be back next year, having your own house when visiting family in the area made it feel like a true vacation.
Esmerelda L.Jul 2016
Found everything you would hope to find in a vacation home. Didn't need to go out much because there was so many things to do inside. Would recommend this place for any type of gathering.
Alicia D.Jul 2016
We had a great time staying in this house with our friends and kids. No problems at all. It was raining most of the weekend, but with the pool table and movies and cable and living spaces we didn't feel cooped up at all. Comfortable furniture and beds and big kitchen with everything we needed. Beautiful view!
Elaine C.Jul 2016
Great location for a base camp. Walkable to bars, markets and restaurants. Short drive to Dory boats and San Dunes at Cape Kiwanda. Good size, clean house with comfortable beds and well stocked kitchen.
Denise C.Jul 2016
Such a beautiful, clean, lovely home! This home is well equipped with everything you will need to have a wonderful, relaxing, vacation. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Camille E.May 2016
This home was wonderful. Everything was well taken care of, great kitchen, selection of movies, pool table, board games and cable!!! Everything we needed was there! Will definitely stay here again.
Marjorie H.May 2016
We loved loved loved this beautiful clean home. You want for nothing. We played pool, fished at near byTown lake, and BBQ'd on the cute deck with great views. We would whole heartedly recommend this home. Ps beds were great. If I had to pick a down side - there are a lot of stairs, if that is a problem for you.
Suzi S.Apr 2016
Nice place, wonderful view. Great place for 2 family's. Only thing lots of stairs so if you you have young kids you need baby gates, we were lucky that my sister-lives near by and she had 2 She let us use. Would be nice if the rental had some in the house.
Joan M.Apr 2016
What a wonderful place for an active yet quiet vacation! Surfing, hiking, running on the beach, shelling, by day. Evenings were filled with movies, pool, and great food on the grill! We look forward to a family reunion at this location in the future.
Melissa C.Apr 2016
This is a great place to stay, but it's the only vacation home in the midst of a residential neighborhood which is a little bit scary. The house across the street is vacant and falling down and we felt we had to be careful to always lock doors and leave nothing in the car overnight. The sound carries quite oddly from the house next door, so every time the neighbors open their door, it sounds like it is your door opening. It would be a perfect place to stay if all you wanted was a base camp for your day trips up and down the coast. The home is beautiful, well-furnished and a nice place to spend the evenings.
Ron W.Feb 2016
We would love to stay here again in the near future. Maybe when it is a little warmer and sunny. We enjoyed your pool table very much when we couldn't get outside. Thank you.
Jeannie R.Aug 2015
A lovely home with many nice amenities. Stairs might be too much for older or less mobile folks, but the beautiful furnishings and bright setting was more than worth it for us.
Hadewych V.Aug 2015
This house has everything a family needs to enjoy their stay in Pacific City. From the wonderful views to the pool table, to the stock of games and movies, it was perfect! Although not on the beach, it was within walking distance of several restaurants and shops, and was only a 3 minute drive into town. We will definitely be back again!
Yvette S.Aug 2015
We stayed the first week of August and had beautiful weather. The large table made family meals enjoyable. Plenty of comfortable seating in living room and game room. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms very pretty. Pool table and games were a hit. Lovely view of haystack rock in the distance, and very close to beaches and dining out. It worked great for our three-generation group.
Naquel V.Jun 2015
The house here is beautiful inside and out.. If your looking for something that's pretty and a good price but not on the beach, this is it!!! Great for families. It is a drove to the beach for sure. Overall great place to stay!
