Family-Friendly - we rated this home to be moderately family-friendly. Older children will travel better at this home. The dining table, which sets in the main living area is glass top and modern. Crank-out windows in main living area (on the 3rd level) do not have screens. If traveling with children under the age of 3, windows will need to be locked, which can create a ventilation issue on hotter days. Check ahead regarding A/C or fans in warm weather months. There are no extra cribs or sleeping for young children. Dishes and glassware are formal and perfect for entertaining guests, although younger children will need to travel with plastic dinnerware or purchase paper plates.

Location - Ocean Heights is very close to town center of the quaint Manzanita, OR. The town has a great assortment of boutique shopping, local restaurants, markets, and a bakery for homemade pie. The home is located near a small supermarket chain for picking up food (great supply of organic items for a small chain), however prices are higher than traveling to nearby Fred Meyer in Tillamook. We recommend purchasing the bulk of your groceries in Tillamook at Fred Meyer or Seaside Safeway prior to arriving in Manzanita. Manzanita Market is great for local breads, baked goods, seafood, produce and specialty items. Nearby beach fronts in Manzanita are quiet with plenty of spots for family picnics, kite flying and photo opportunities.

Quality Design, D├ęcor & Accommodation - This home is unique and pleasant with modern amenities. Tastefully decorated, we rated the home best for couples and families with older children. The layout is perfect for entertaining adult guests.

Activities - There is not a large stock of games or kid-related toys in the home, so remember to travel with your own or pick up beach pails and sand toys at a local market. The ocean is just a short walk or bike ride from the home. Biking around town is a great activity with Manzanita full of interesting shops. Pick up bikes and boards at Manzanita Bikes & Boards for surfing, boogie or skim boarding.

Ocean Heights is very restful as it sets pleasantly on a tree-covered hillside. There are no direct ocean views, but the location is uniquely quiet and equally enjoyable. If you are looking to get away in a modern home that is equipped with amenities like home (or even better), this is the place. The 1,900-square-foot, tri-level home sleeps up to seven guests. The master suite features a comfortable king bed, private viewing deck, walk-in closet, and elegant en suite bathroom. There are two additional bedrooms, each with a queen bed, and another bathroom on the middle floor. A double futon off the upstairs living space provides accommodations for one more. Along with the one-car garage, the first floor has a washer and dryer that make it ultra-convenient to clean up after a day at the beach.


The expansive deck, which sits high above the peaceful neighborhood and surrounding homes, is located just off the main living area. Oversized windows and a large sliding glass door off the living area, creates indoor/outdoor living space, perfect for hosting a memorable holiday event or special family occasion.

The view is as impressive and the perfect backdrop to early morning breakfasts, brunch, and holiday BBQs. The nearly panoramic ocean view is breathtaking.

Amenities include: comfortable sleeping with quality mattresses, ample bedding and linens, cooking utensils, flatware, dishes and glassware. You will find all of the major appliances in the modern kitchen. Cooking up a gourmet meal will be a cinch with everything available from mixing bowls, strainers, pots and pans, to serving pieces. There is no grill for outdoor meal prep. There are plenty of quality wine glasses and water glasses for eating a sit-down meal. The flat-screen TV in the main living area, with sound bar, provides quality entertainment for those evenings when you plan to stay in. The gas fireplace creates a romantic ambiance and helps remove the chill on cooler days. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide natural light and bring the outside in. You will have plenty of views to enjoy from the main living area and relaxing window seat, which sets adjacent to the kitchen (it's the ideal spot to relax with a glass of wine or fresh ground cup of coffee).

Two balconies, one off the master and the other off the main living area, are perfect for soaking in the fresh air, reading your favorite book cuddled under your Pendleton blanket, or enjoying with your special someone.

Ocean Heights is located within walking distance of the ocean and a longer walk (or short drive) to the local market. Local boutiques line the main street, Laneda Ave, such as Moxie Fair Trade. You will find quality, sustainable finds from home goods, to scarves and jewelry. A few coffee shops and restaurants are worth a visit.

After reviewing this home, we are certain you will leave feeling refreshed and ready to re-join the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
