Fisherman's Dream Vacation Rental 5680 Fifth Street, Cape Meares, OR 97141

This spacious three-floor beach house just five minutes from Oregon Coast's beautiful sandy shore makes for an idyllic family vacation, getaway with good friends or a fantastic fishing trip. Curl up by the cozy wood stove, walk to the beautiful sandy beach, or enjoy a glass of wine on the outdoor deck while watching the sun set over the ocean.

The house is designed to make the most of the ocean views from the upper levels. The second floor has a beautiful outside deck overlooking the ocean, and the views continue from inside the house. Comfortable leather furniture is arranged before the expansive windows, a wood-burning stove, and a TV with DVD player so you can enjoy the world's coziest movie marathon on rainy days! A full kitchen is stocked with everything a home cook could desire, plus a dishwasher for easy clean-up. There are two stools at the breakfast bar for casual meals, or a six-person dining table bathed in soft natural light for sit-down dinners or hearty family breakfasts.

The first floor provides a bit of extra quiet and privacy, and has one bedroom with two twin beds and a full bathroom. Each of the other two bedrooms upstairs offers a king bed, and two additional baths to make life easy on large groups! The upstairs loft includes a futon. The house also offers the convenience of a washer and dryer and wireless Internet access. One small, well-behaved dog is allowed for a $10 nightly fee.

The house has a very desirable location in peaceful Cape Meares, an under-appreciated and uncrowded oasis along the Oregon Coast. The walk to the beach, along a flat gravel path, takes less than five minutes from the front door. The path leads to a beautiful four-mile stretch of sand with plenty of driftwood and beach rocks, making it ideal for bonfires and marshmallow roasting!

You'll will certainly want to partake in the Three Capes Scenic Drive, visit the nearby historic lighthouses, try your hand at crabbing and clamming, and visit one of the quaint beach town restaurants in nearby Oceanside (just a five-minute drive away). And, as our name suggests, the house is perfectly suited for fishermen with three freshwater rivers and opportunities for deep-sea fishing out of nearby Garibaldi. The driveway can accommodate a boat, so be sure to bring yours with you and take advantage of the areas excellent fishing & crabbing opportunities while you are here!

    great spot a view from the top, a few blocks to the beach. Very new, good condition, take your shoes off. Very nice kitchen. No phone reception on t-mobile or at&t but good wi-fi and TV. Plenty of room for a couple of families. Cape Meares is a super place, very quiet, no services, great beach.

    Cape Meares is beautiful and our family had a great time during our stay. The home is in a good location and worked really well for our family of six. Overall, the home was in very good condition and very clean, however, it did have a moderate cigarette odor which aired out sufficiently.

    The highlight of our trip was taking our little one on the steam-powered train from Garibaldi to Rockaway Beach.

    A great place for a larger group. We were only four, so had plenty of extra room. Good cooking supplies - great knives,pans, pots, which is usually not the case in rental properties.

    The house is very well equipped with good quality pans, dishes, appliances, etc. and plenty of towels---I was pleasantly surprised--- everything was in such good working order--- except --- there was thick black mold in kitchen window. From the wet climate, I know, but maybe the house keepers might like to check that from time to time-- especially the kitchen window!! --- so close to the food. The vacuume cleaners need to be emptied---ONCE IN A WHILE!?. What more could I say?! It was lovely!! Thank you,

    This place is about as good as it gets. The kitchen was fully stocked, beds were comfortable, space was open and spacious. It was perfect for our two families for a three-night stay. We'll definitely come back to this house, and we really, really appreciated the immediate attention we got at every turn.

    On the minus side, we could have used a couple more blankets on the beds, the VCR player was broken (but the wi-fi worked perfectly and we streamed movies) and some of the jigsaw puzzles were missing pieces. Other than those tiny things -- it was fabulous.

    We tried this place for the first time, after vacationing in Cape Meares for twenty-five years. We were pleasantly pleased with everything, and look forward to a return trip in the near future.

    Although we were a little taken aback by how open the floor plan was (not a lot of privacy or quiet time for the baby), overall, we found the property was well-suited to our needs. We would definitely consider returning should the opportunity arise.

    My ONLY "criticism" is one that we have confronted at other rentals: with 7 of us, it would have been very difficult to get all the towels washed in the itty, bitty washer and dryer by check out time had the kids not left 2 days before my husband and me.

    Please tell the owners we appreciate their willingness to offer their home for rent.

    Thanks!

    Overall we had a great time at the house despite the rainy weekend. The location a few blocks from the beach was great and the beach itself was beautiful and peaceful. It was quiet and peaceful at the house and we enjoyed the view of the ocean. The house was very clean. There are just a few items around the house that need fixed / replaced. Thanks!

    Very nice, quiet, peaceful location. Walking distance to beach was perfect; spacious for a group of 8 plus a dog. Stocked with sleeping bags, which we used. LOVED the great big windows to watch the sunset; nice upstairs deck and ground level patio; well-stocked pantry. Has a small apartment-style washer/dryer for a big house. Will probably return during colder months.

    Great for a family vacation. Loved all the light and bright windows with views of the ocean. The deck was very pleasant. Best part was 3 bedroom each with its own bathroom. That's a rare find. We enjoyed driving to Girabaldi for FRESH seafood each day, and had the best time exploring the beautiful, uncrowded, pristine Oregon Coast. We even had bon fires and marshmallow roasts each night out on the beach just a few minutes walk from the house Wow..it was really nice. The kitchen was stocked like a dream. The cookware was fabulous, and in case you forgot something, you could probably find it in their nice pantry. The microwave didn't work but no big deal for us. The CD player didn't work, but the manager went out, bought a new one and brought it right over. Can't beat that. Thanks for a great time.

    We met up with family from Colorado and stayed at Fisherman's Dream for 4 nights. Great layout and big enough for our party (4 adults, 3 kids). House was spicand span, well-cared for and blessed with wonderful ocean views and buckets of light. As long as you don't need cable and Internet access, it's a superb spot for a summer getaway. We loved the beach, sea cave and nearby ridge hikes, and Tillamook (with its cheese factory and ice cream bar) was just 20 minutes drive away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this property.

    Great place and lovely deck to sit on in the sun. Main problem was lack of amenities though... there was no kettle to boil water for tea or coffee, there were limited saucepans and other other basic kitchen appliances. The garden seats outside were old and near collapsing. Mostly everything else was great about the property and it was a shame that the amenities and outdoor furniture let it down. Still, it was a great weekend.

    We had a wonderful time...just a few suggestions....add another garbage can....(6 days was a long time with one garabage can) Possibly a few more towels would be nice as well. We did have a few issues with the outlets not working in the bathrooms....Overall we WILL be back and very much enjoyed our stay. The house was beautiful.

    Great house. We didn't realize it didn't have cable or satellite (it does state this in the description), but there are a ton of movies to make up for that. The woodstove is all you really need to keep the place warm, one log was plenty. You should put more pics up to give this place justice.
