Ocean views, dog-friendly, game room, close to beach & shops

Transport yourself to the ocean when your group stays at this ocean view Pacific City vacation rental. There's room for up to 10 guests (nine adults maximum), plus two dogs!

The sandy beach shores are barely one block away, which makes for endless days spent beachcombing, surfing, kayaking, lounging, and building sandcastles. Shopping and eateries are close by for days off as well!

Tall ceilings and lavish furnishings create a wonderfully intimate space for you to enjoy quality time with your travel companions.

With an open floor plan, the main living area will house numerous days and nights full of laughter, delicious home-cooked food, games, movies, and so much more. The flatscreen TV in the living room has cable and a DVD/VHS player attached so you can keep up on all your favorite shows. Cozy up in the adjacent seating area to gaze out at the ocean, or play chess at the hightop table.

On the other side of the living room is the dining area and full kitchen. The large wood table seats eight, and five ornate metal barstools are set up to the countertop bar. And even more seating is available out on the deck, so you can breathe in the crisp ocean air while sipping your morning coffee.

The natural wood island matches the beautiful light-colored cabinets, and the stainless steel major appliances allow for easy prepped meals each day of the vacation. Also included are a microwave, coffeemaker, dishwasher, blender, toaster, and mixer.

Four nicely decorated bedrooms offer all 10 guests a place to rest at day's end. One has a king-size bed, two offer comfortable queen-size beds, and the last has a full bed and two twin beds (one is a trundle).

Two and a half bathrooms and a laundry room keep guests happy and clean for the entire trip. And having WiFi means you can keep up with work, family, and friends, so stay as long as you want! Please note that if you do bring along up to two of your dogs, there is a nightly pet fee.

Play foosball and Ping-Pong in the garage before heading out for a great day exploring this fun-filled city. Check out Chinook Winds Casino in nearby Lincoln City for a night full of entertainment, though there are ample activities right here in Pacific City to keep you entertained. Hike around Cape Kiwanda, located about one mile north, do a little souvenir shopping, then try a delicious meal at the Pelican Pub and Brewery.

From flying kites to holing up on rainy days in this impressive Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental, there's no doubt everyone will love your stay here.

The layout was great, the large island and table make it great for bigger families, it was decorated nicely with lots of puzzles and games, and it was a short walk to the beach. Would definitely stay here again.
Malinda M. Oct 2019
The layout of the home was perfect! We were able to hangout together, all 8 of us, and still be doing different things. Lots of things to do as it was raining outside from the board games to chess to puzzles on the x-large kitchen island and even ping pong in the garage. We definitely enjoyed our stay!
BETTY H. Oct 2019
Beautiful and cheerfully decorated and maintained. So lovely.
Pam L. Aug 2019
When we arrived we found the house had not been cleaned properly. I contacted Vacasa, and they responded quickly with an on-site manager who took care of our concerns. We found the house to be a perfect spot for our large family, who loves to prepare their own meals, so the large kitchen island was perfect. The main living space had plenty of comfortable seating, and enough space for comfort. Our family loved spending time on the front and back decks. We would definitely want to rent this home again, but will plan on providing some of our own dish soap, laundry supplies, as well as standard kitchen utensils and dishes for large cooking projects.
Jordan B. Jul 2019
The location of this house is great and it had all the amenities our party of 10 needed. Few light bulbs were out and one of the toilets ran non-stop, but nothing we couldn't cope with. I would stay here again.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback! We will let the local staff know about the light bulbs and the toilets. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We look forward to hosting you again!

My husband and I enjoyed staying on the second level in the master bedroom with a large bathroom and with sunken tub. We were able to get up each morning and make breakfast for our five grandchildren while the rest of the family slept downstairs in the other three bedrooms. Large kitchen and living area- very open with large windows! We could see the ocean from one view and tree covered hills from the other. Pacific City is a wonderful area for family fun, sand dune and tide pool exploration, and many other memory making activities. Thanks for the response when we had a question right after we got there! We would definitely consider staying here again in the future.
John H. Mar 2019
The home was well-appointed, warm, and spacious with a great deck out front and a smaller one behind - just a block from the beach and able to see some of the ocean from the upstairs... just a few blocks away from some great restaurants, bakery, and brewery... would definitely return again!

This is a beautiful house in a perfect location. Immaculately kept with all the amenities.
David H. Nov 2018
Nice proximity to the beach. Very nice kitchen area. spacious and clean
Ean L. Sep 2018
We were in town for the longboard surf contest. We had a couple of families and a dog. The house was great. Easy access to the beach. A quiet neighborhood. All the amenities you need to have a great time.
Francesca H. Sep 2018
Great location, nice sized house for a family getaway.
Sherri B. Aug 2018
The home was nice and we loved the open floor plan. We would stay there again. We did have problems getting in because the lockbox didn’t work but eventually worked that out. The place needed a few minor repairs as well. Otherwise we would rate the place 5 stars.
Susan W. Jul 2018
Loved all the space in the common area. Tons of seating for a large family to all eat at the same time either at the large island or dining table. Loved see whole family spread out in the room enjoying each others company or such relaxing with a snooze. We always enjoy our time in Pacific City and this house is a nice walk to town either on the beach or the walking path. Will definitely stay again.
Roger W. Jul 2018
The house was very spacious, clean, comfortable for all 9 of us. There was plenty of kitchen supplies, entertainment options such as games, TV, etc. and only a five minute walk to the beach.
Suzanne L. Jul 2018
Loved the large kitchen area, views, games, beach supplies, convenience to beach, fun beach deco.
Robert L. Jun 2018
Only reason I graded this home 3 stars was the fact the garbage cans were full when we arrived and it appeared an animal has got into them. Also, the oven did not work properly. It was a clean home and had a great layout for multiple families. We would rent again but would like the oven fixed and the garbage emptied.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see there were a couple of drawbacks to this visit and wish the guest had notified us so we could have assisted. Trash pickup is scheduled weekly, but guests are welcome to call and request an additional pick-up if necessary. The oven has been repaired. Thanks!
Jordan L. Jun 2018
Came with 10 people and the house never felt packed. The huge island in the kitchen is the best feature in the house, so good for massive cookouts. Plenty of room to sleep. The master bedroom is phenomenal, the decks are great. The grill runs hot but you have to use a lighter for one of the burners (no biggy). Easy walk to the sand hill, and great beach side areas to do a campfire.
Rosemary B. May 2018
The vacation home was so incredible spacious and in a gated community which made the stay feel a little safer. Beach access was within walking distance, as well as near by shops. The stay was so much fun as well as relaxing, I highly recommend this vacation home
Mike S. Apr 2018
The home is nicely furnished and comfortable.
The enclosed decks makes it very easy for children and pets to wander outside side on their own.
The weather was the best it has ever been mid April.
Tamisha C. Aug 2017
Everything was perfect. Great house with TONS of room for everyone! Perfect location. Close to beach. Easy walk or bike ride to Pelican Brewery or downtown. Loved every minute of our stay!
Christina B. Jun 2017
There are not really three parking spots unless you go off the driveway.
Michelle W. May 2017
We enjoyed our long weekend in Pacific City. This house has a great location, easy walk to the beach and town. Great trails for walking and biking. It is a bit small for 10, better suited for 8. And it was missing some basic items like pot holders for the oven, plug and dish drainer for the sink and no cleaning products were provided. These were not things we would have thought to pack!
But it is a nice house, great open concept airy kitchen and living room. Great views and nice neighborhood.
Manager response:
The Property Manager has purchased pot holders and a sink plug for the home and has reminded housekeeping to leave cleaning supplies for guest use. Guests are always welcome to call for assistance if they find items missing that should be in the home. Thank you!
Randall L. May 2017
This rental was clean and well maintained. It was well stocked with everything needed to make it possible to show up, unpack and relax.
We used this rental as a landing location for Reach The Beach. We had four couples in our group and everyone had ample room in the home.
The Vacasa management company were friendly, responsive and very well coordinated. I would rent this home again. :)
Robert S. Jan 2017
Pelican Watch was amazing! We took our 3 daughters and their spouses and it was perfect! Lots of space, not crowded at all and a big dining table which was awesome...Beautiful windows bring in so much natural light and you get a great breeze when they are open. The decks are also very nice and the neighborhood deer are so cute to watch...Great house, perfect location, lots to do inside and out! Thank you Pelican Watch!
Jodie H. Nov 2016
An ok place. Fireplace wasn't working and wanted that for the stormy days we had there.
Manager response:
A fireplace technician will be servicing this unit in the near future. Thanks!
Valerie M. Nov 2016
Great location, lovely home with cute interior décor. Plenty of room for a multi family getaway!
Pam H. Nov 2016
Nice house, great kitchen, great open space for visiting with friends and family!
Julie D. Aug 2016
This home is wonderful for large group. It did not feel crowded with the maximum 10 allowed. Upper and lower decks on front & back are great. Back of home is on the protected wetland. We had a great time here. If you are the max allowed, you probably have to buy some of your own supplies...toilet paper, paper towels, dish was liquid. Kitchen equipment very well stocked & appliances were good.
Kelli M. Aug 2016
We loved the location and ultimately had a great time in Pacific City. However, it was poorly cleaned even though the maid was there for at least 30 minutes after time of check-in. Several items were broken on arrival including the vacuum, blinds, screen door, and a bed footboard that left sharp corners exposed. Lightbulbs were missing and no soap or dishwasher detergent was provided. The house has a lot of potential, nice decor and nice layout. It just really needed a little TLC and good cleaning. I think we would stay in the area again, but might select a different house.
Manager response:
We are pleased to say that the owners and Property Manager have fixed all of these items and then some. Come see the improvements!
Mary J. Aug 2016
Beautiful home! Lots of room, loved the big kitchen and bar.
Craig R. Aug 2016
A great home with a nice big kitchen. Easy access to beach.
Gale F. Aug 2016
Loved staying here! Would like to come back to this property
Garrett B. Jul 2016
We had a wonderful time in Pacific City. Such a great, laid-back, little surf town.
Cynthia L. Jun 2016
great place to gather as a family!
Terry W. Jun 2016
The Pelican Watch is basically as advertised. Great location about 2 blocks from the ocean and about a 10-15 minute walk from the brewpub/dune area. The main living area is upstairs with the master bedroom/bath, kitchen and living room. The kitchen is huge and well-stocked, but beware there are no spices (not even salt/pepper) so bring your own. The 3 bedrooms downstairs (where you enter home) are comfortable and roomy. Loved having the ping-pong table in the garage. Our group of 7 enjoyed the home very much.
Kelley A. May 2016
Beautiful house. Clean, spacious and great location.
Carrie K. May 2016
The home is beautiful, views are decent and proximity to the beach is good. We tried multiple time to reach the staff to extend our stay by one day but were unsuccessful. Made us wonder what happens if there had been a real issue/problem??!?
Manager response:
We apologize that we were difficult to reach; we are actively hiring more staff so that we are easier to get in touch with and can more effectively and efficiently address our guests' needs.
Katherine T. May 2016
Perfect place for a family getaway! Very clean, chocked full of amenities, we were so pleased :)
Brent . May 2016
We had three families with four little ones and had a great time. Great layout, easy to cook. Awesome beach access. Lovely view. Very nice place.
Teresa N. Apr 2016
This house was gorgeous! Loved it! A few things to know are that it is in a gated community so everyone needs to know the instructions for the gate. Also, the house has an amazing deck in front and in back so there is plenty of quiet deck space but the house is 2 houses back from the beach so no ocean view but still beautiful sunset on the deck with peaks of glimmering ocean. Bonus that the back deck faces pine tree tops with a wetland with ducks, Osprey, and deer. The walk from front door to beach is past 2 houses so it's really right there ocean side, just not on the beach with a view. Easily solved as beach towels and chairs were provided. The downstairs at entry level has garage and 3 bedrooms. The first room has queen bed & hidden trundle. The 2nd room has queen bed, the 3rd room has queen bed and seperate day bed & hidden trundle. Upstairs living space is amazing and spread out. This floor has an elbow shaped living space facing the TV and deck, plus a bonus space with 2 comfy chairs facing out the front window or for playing a huge game of chess. The counter is just as pictured with 5 bar stools and ample space for cooking. This counter top is NOT finished so you have to keep a close eye for spills, even water. The stove and oven worked great and the micro as well. The kitchen had everything!!! This is really unexpected beyond the norm for beach rentals. Toaster, blenders, mixers, and an entire drawer of knives. Huge stacks of dishes and plenty of wine glasses. Pots and pans and even an omlette pan. Really everything our cooking party needed. And the gas fireplace is romantic and easy to flip on. We even used the bbq grill and had plenty of propane. There were even extra blankets in the armoire to use for cuddling up. This is a house we will definitely use again! Only thing more perfect would be a view but that's all that was missing! The maid crew turned up right at check out time but waited outside until we finished loading up. All in all a very fantastic stay!
Mark H. Mar 2016
Great place. Lots of room for family dinners and hanging out.
Timothy R. Mar 2016
Outstanding home, very clean with ample amenities for the three couples we had staying at the Pelican Watch. Very roomy for the six of us. The only negative would be that the element was out on the oven and created a little bit of a challenge to cook. Broiling took some time but eventually got the job done. All in all, we had an awesome time and will most definitely look up this property next time we are in Pacific City! Cheers!
Nicole T. Feb 2016
Great location and gathering space! Need to check appliances prior to guest arrival!! Easy reservations and instructions.
Lucia C. Feb 2016
Awesome location, great house!
Gina P. Jan 2016
Nice house in a great location, but it could have been cleaner. Specifically, the kitchen was not clean. We had to clean the stove and counters when we arrived. Also the cable was inadequate; mostly just local networks available; no national news, sports, etc.
Manager response:
Thank you for the response. We apologize that the clean was not up to standards for your stay. We will work to ensure that this does not happen again. Thank you for staying with us!
