Make Cape Kiwanda your next getaway—choose from 17 great vacation rentals

While Cape Kiwanda is specifically the name given to the 185-acre State Natural Area (part of the Three Capes Scenic Route), many local businesses have embraced it as well, thus expanding Cape Kiwanda's influence slightly further south down the coast and making the name more or less synonymous with Pacific City.

Recent Cape Kiwanda vacation rental reviews

Darling house, each bedroom has its own bathroom. A definite plus. It is in a gated community, the beach was wonderful.

So, we rented this house to house my bridal party, their significant others, and eventually myself and my husband (still so fun to type that word). It was spacious, clean, and the hot tub was to die for. I was worried about the more recent reviews, I won't lie. But I'm not sure what happened with their experience because we all had a wonderful time! The internet was a little wonky at times, but because we were out and about the majority of the day anyway, that didn't highly impact our stay. So, no harm and no foul there for us! The bikes in the garage are darling and we rode one to the beach! There is one with a broken chain, so be weary of that one. If I could give any feedback it would be: The house is a LITTLE close to the main road, so keep an eye on your pet if you bring one. Please keep your dog on a leash if you let them out in the back as there is no fence as a barrier between the back patio and the road. But sound wise, it was barely noticeable! Just a safety tip for everyone :) And lastly, the lock box needs oiled or something? It was pretty hard for a few of us to get into. We had an incredible time and I am so happy this place was available to us to house our closest friends for the best day of our lives :)

We truly enjoyed our 4 night stay over Labor Day. The weather was great and the house did the trick. The grand kids especially loved the play room upstairs. The grown-ups enjoyed the many inside and outside sitting areas. Besides from a gas grill issue which was promptly and professionally addressed by the property manager, only these other minor issues should be improved for the ultimate price range vs. enjoyment matrix optimization: the kitchen "inventory" really need some TLC. The drawers were a mess and it was hard to find anything. Most pots did not have lids that fit, the big pan was so wobbly that it was unusable (the property manager brought a new one), most knives were dull , only one cutting board which was way past its prime. Some ovenproof dishes would be great for cooking and baking. BYO cooking oil, spices, storage bags, foil, etc. as there are none.

Whether your plans take you to the coast for surfing, kayaking, hiking the sand dunes, or beach combing, our vacation rentals near Cape Kiwanda are an ideal destination for large groups or families looking to get away from it all along the beautiful Oregon Coast.

Where is Cape Kiwanda?

Cape Kiwanda lies roughly 100 miles west of downtown Portland, making it close enough for a well-deserved day trip. While the specific coastal State Natural Area bearing its name stretches about two miles north from Hungry Harbor Road up to an area directly across from Sears Lake, nearby Pacific City and Cloverdale both contain businesses and other destinations that proudly proclaim association with the Cape Kiwanda name.

Those traveling via small plane can enjoy the convenience of the Pacific City State Airport located on the east side of the Nestucca River, which allows visitors to deplane and hit the beach within a matter of minutes.

Things to do at Cape Kiwanda

Visitors to the Northern Oregon Coast are often looking for a quiet corner of the world to escape to where they can surf, walk on the sand, or just kick back and admire the view. A visit to the Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area offers access to hiking trails that eventually lead to views from atop the Great Dune of Nestucca Bay to the south and Cape Lookout to the North. And don't miss the adjacent Marine Garden offering opportunities for tide pooling and observing a variety of cliff-nesting birds.

As you walk along the beach just south of this area, you can gaze upon the monolithic Haystack Rock (also known as Chief Kiawanda Rock), an impressive geologic icon located roughly 500 feet from the shore, out beyond the breakers. Other outdoor activities popular in the area include fishing, crabbing, clamming, kite flying, horseback riding, camping, kayaking, and canoeing.

For great food and handcrafted beers, be sure to visit the oceanfront Pelican Pub & Brewery located right on the beach off Cape Kiwanda Drive. A short journey into downtown Pacific City will deliver you to quaint art galleries, gift shops, and a few other popular restaurants and coffee shops including the Grateful Bread Bakery, Sportsman Pub and Grub, and the Oar House Bar & Grill.

Nearby attractions worth seeing

As mentioned earlier, Cape Kiwanda is the southernmost stop on the Three Capes Scenic Drive, starting with Cape Meares to the North (home of the historic Cape Meares Lighthouse and the must-see Octopus Tree), continuing with Cape Lookout State Park, and concluding with Kiwanda. This pleasant, meandering drive offers ocean vistas, small towns, trailheads, and sand dunes.

Another worthwhile destination is Lincoln City, located just 24 miles south of Cape Kiwanda. Offering seven miles of pristine beaches, a popular casino, antique stores, kite-flying festivals, and other unique events like Finders Keepers (running mid-October through Memorial Day) where nearly 3,000 handcrafted glass floats made by local artisans are secretly left under cover of night for visitors to discover the next day, Lincoln City is definitely worth the trip.

The Oregon Coast is a destination like no other and those looking to enjoy the surf, walk the sands, or hike the trails will find it all and more with our vacation rentals near Cape Kiwanda.
