The Little Brown House 73 North Avenue, Manzanita, OR 97130

Less than a block from the beach is where you'll find this adorable, oceanview two bedroom Manzanita vacation rental. With ample beach getaway charm, you can spend spend chilly coast nights snuggled up in front of the fire burning wood stove or sunny afternoons out on the deck. And if you want to head to one of Manzanita's restaurants or shops, the cute downtown area is only a five block walk.

Featuring a reverse floor plan, you'll find the main living room upstairs and the bedrooms downstairs. The living room is bright and open with a charming wood paneled wall and lots of windows - you'll be sure to spend a lot of time here hanging out, opening the deck doors for a cool breeze, or just reading at night in front of a toasty fire. After dinner, pop in a DVD and watch a movie on the flat screen TV. There's also WiFi if you want to get online.

A dining room table seats up to six (with the extension), for family meals or an evening entertaining friends. And if you want to start the night with cocktails, there's no better place than the ocean view deck. You can even use the grill and make it a cookout before heading down to the sand for an after-dinner walk along the surf.

The sunny kitchen is stocked with major appliances like a refrigerator, stovetop/oven, and a microwave. You'll also have a coffeemaker, coffee grinder, blender, mixer, and toaster. Whip up a hearty pot of seafood stew on a summer evening or an omelet brunch complete with a pitcher of mimosas. And while there's no dishwasher, you can always let the dishes soak while you go check out the sunset on the beach.

On the lower level, one bedroom has a queen bed, while the other has twin bunk beds. Both rooms are cheerily accessorized and will make sure everyone has a good night's sleep. In addition, there's a futon in the living for extra sleeping options for up to six guests (four adults).

The full bathroom has a walk-in shower and a stacked washer and dryer. And don't forget the pets at home! Up to two dogs are welcome with a $10 per day, per pet fee.

Manzanita is a sleepy little coastal town with a long, sandy stretch of beach, galleries, restaurants, and shops. Start the morning at Manzanita News and Espresso, then head out to the beach for a long walk with the dog or a lazy morning spent on a beach blanket, with your nose in a good book.

When you've had your fill of building sandcastles and looking for shells on the beach right by your Oregon Coast vacation rental, spend an afternoon browsing the town's galleries, the bookstore, or picking up dinner supplies at the Manzanita Grocery & Deli. Nearby attractions include hiking at Oswald State Park and a scenic three mile hike up Neahkanie Mountain for a stunning summit viewpoint.

From winter storm watching from your cozy living room to mojitos out on the sunny deck, this Manzanita vacation home is an ideal getaway anytime of year. Pack the car with the kids and dogs and escape to the Oregon Coast for a little beachside R&R.

    We strongly recommend Manzanita. The town is small, friendly and sits on a gorgeous beach and is surrounded by some of the loveliest shoreline walks and hikes in this area of Oregon. However, unless you are just 2 adults, I would not recommend the Little Brown House. It is small, as advertised, but cramped is a better description. It has a good location, and for just 2 would maybe be OK. It was listed for 6, and we were just 5, but compared with our other experiences with rental houses in this part of Oregon, just not adequate even for a short stay. Ours was just 3 days and it was lovely weather; had it been rainy, it would have been a nightmare!

    I asked about early check-in, and they sent an email the day before we arrived letting us know it was available early, which was great. We arrived and had a problem unlocking the front door, as the lock would not accept the key. Once we got unlocked with some persistence, we really enjoyed our stay. Good location, comfortable, and a bit rustic. The kitchen is very basic, and there is no exhaust fan, so if I was doing a lot of cooking, or fixing something that was a little smokey, that would be a negative for me. It was not a problem for this trip, but thought it was worth mentioning for any serious cooks. We had a lot of fun. Great price for mid-week.

    We so enjoyed our stay at the Little Brown House. Very clean and cheerfully
    decorated. Fabulous location, very close to the beach and walking distance
    to town. We barbequed on the deck which has a view of the ocean. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and nice dishes. My grand daughters loved their bunkbeds. We would definately go back! Vacasa was wonderful to work with.

    This will be a place we will continue to come back to over and over again. Would not recommend more than 4 people with one bathroom and total size of house. But overall, great place. Provide everything you need and close to everything!

    The Little Brown House was perfect for a weekend getaway. It's a little rustic - no dishwasher but, has all the basics you need. Having a nice ocean view from the deck was a bonus! Just steps from the beach and a short walk to town. The location is perfect. Slept 4 adults just fine. Pet friendly. The house had 2 fans which we used since the house got a bit warm when the sun hit it in the afternoon. We can't wait to book our next trip back to Manzanita.

    We enjoyed our stay on this house. Our kids and dog loved playing on the beach. Being so close to the ocean was really great. The only thing we expected were basic spices for cooking. The only thing in the house was 1/2 full salt shaker, no pepper or anything else. If you are planning on cooking, bring your own supplies. Other than that we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly!

    The Little Brown House was perfect for a weekend getaway to the beach at Manzanita. Steps from the beach, within walking distance of town (coffee, eats, grocery, library), easy drive to other beach adventures (recommend tidepools at Haystack rock, hike in Oswald West St Park, fresh crab from Wheeler). The cabin was cozy, warm, clean and comfortable. View of the waves. Bring your own firewood if you want a fire but know that the electric heat gets the house plenty warm.

    Had a great time at the little brown house. It was great for 2 people, but would be tight for more as there is only one bathroom on the downstairs floor, and the living area (kitchen, TV room was on the second floor). The location was great, easy walking to the beach and town.

    We had a very nice three-day stay here in August. The house is about a minute's walk from the beach and there is a great ocean view from the deck. We have a two-year-old daughter and we appreciated the child-proofing throughout the house; there is a baby gate built in to the top of the main stairs and the whole upstairs deck is fenced in to keep little people from falling (without obstructing the views for big people.) The only thing we didn't anticipate was that there is no bathtub, just a shower - our daughter thought this was just an extra-fun way to get clean, so no complaints on our end, just something to be aware of.

    This house is pretty basic, but it does the trick. One block from the beach and a 5 minute walk into town made it the perfect location for us. Nice view from the deck. Technically it can sleep 6, but we found it very cosy with just 3 of us. Any more than 4 would be crowded.

    The Little Brown House was a great little place. A lot of the managed vacation homes that you find say they can sleep a large number of people, but this one could actually sleep six comfortably. The main part of the house is on the upper story and the only bathroom on the lower level so you'll have to up and down stairs a lot. The linens were new and attractive and the decor was what I would call American Zen.
    I would recommend this place to anyone. Two thumbs up.

    Hello! Overall, very happy with the house. One thing-I remember reading on the house description page that it had a record player. This was definitely a selling point. But no record player on arrival :(
