Neahkahnie is a tiny beach home community nestled just north of Manzanita. The mostly residential neighborhood offers some of the Northern Oregon Coast's most beautiful stretches of beach, with the lovely cottages giving way to wilderness as Neahkahnie Mountain rises over the rugged coastline. Sunshine is more common along this sheltered stretch of shore than anywhere else along the northern coast. Although a quiet little town, an Oregon Coast vacation rental in Neahkahnie offers plenty of options for lively recreation. Nearby Oswald West State Park has a few of the region's best hikes, and surfers swear by the waves at the secluded Short Sands Beach. Stories of long-lost pirates' gold have led many treasure hunters up the Neahkahnie Mountain Summit Trail, although their only (not-too-shabby) reward is a panoramic view south to Cape Meares. Neahkahnie itself offers very little in the way of services or amenities; but the town essentially blends into Manzanita, which has a small but excellent handful of options for dining and shopping, including a few coffee shops, bookstores, and even a sports pub. Even more variety lies to the north, in both Cannon Beach (twenty-five minutes away) and Seaside (half an hour). Comparatively "big-city" shopping and chain restaurants can be found in Tillamook, about forty minutes south. Portland is less than two hours' drive away, and Seattle just under four, making a Neahkahnie vacation rental a hidden gem for those who are looking to get away from the big city for a truly peaceful destination along the Northern Oregon Coast.
