Great beach vacation
We came with our two kids (3 and 1) and had such a wonderful week at Arch Cape Escape. Our days basically went: wakeup and explore the sea stars at low tide, hang out on the beach all day, make campfires at night with s'mores, put the kids to bed and sit out under the stars with the campfire and some wine. One of the most relaxing stays we've had in a long time. We really loved how this house had everything we needed, and the all the firewood you could need to have great campfires in the backyard or house. We loved the kitchen space for gathering, cooking, eating, etc. And the private front yard is also great to the let the kids play in safely. We also really appreciated the more rustic/distraction free atmosphere. It helped us disconnect and just enjoy our family and the beautiful surroundings. While we were there we went ahead and booked our trip for next year - we recommend this place for sure!- Hayden S from Bainbridge Island, Posted: 09/23/2021
We Love Arch Cape Escape!
This was our family's third stay at Arch Cape Escape and we love it! The view is perfect from the lovely oceanside, tiered deck and garden and also from the living room, kitchen and master bedroom. The well thought out landscaping provides a windbreak there without spoiling the views. This is a most comfortable house with good traffic flow, a well equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds, quilts and pillows, a great fireplace with a very generous wood pile, The garden area on the street side adds even more privacy. Arch Cape is a quiet community, just homes-no businesses. Perfect. The only negative we have to share this year is...it's time to replace some of the living room furniture particularly the sofa ; we all avoided using it because it sags so badly. This is a well planned, well cleaned, well stocked house. We always feel at home here!- christine o from boise, Posted: 08/22/2021
My family and I got to enjoy the beautiful “arch cape escape” home with it’s spectacular ocean view. The rooms were all welcoming and comfortable. The kitchen was great for cooking and enjoying our family dinners. It was a perfect space to reunite with our kids and grandson. We’d definitely consider returning in the future.

Comfortable, well-equipped beach house in a stunning location. Five minute walk to the beach and a short drive to all of the attractions of town (Cannon Beach). We will be back!

Arch Cape Oceanside Escape
The home was a perfect spot for our family reunion. Beautiful home, beautiful scenery and beautiful beach!- Anonymous U , Posted: 06/21/2021
Best and coziest on Coast!
Amazing! Best on the Coast. Thank you!- Scott D from Portland, Posted: 05/18/2021
Arch Cape IS an Escape!
We loved our stay in Arch Cape. The house has a great location, with easy access to the local beaches and hikes in the forest. Though it's in a neighborhood, it has a very private feel. It's also easy to get to the nearby towns of Cannon Beach and Manzanita. We really appreciated the attention to detail. The property is beautiful, well-maintained, and well-stocked. During our stay, it served 2 guests very well and, later, a total of 6 guests (plus dog) very comfortably. We hope to return to Arch Cape Escape soon. Our experience was great!- Anonymous U , Posted: 05/12/2021
Truly An Escape
We enjoyed this beautiful home and surroundings for 3 wonderful weeks this past January, with our fur babies too! The space was so comfortable, especially the bay window in the living room. Watching the waves from here was a large part of my daily routine. We really enjoy cooking and the kitchen was well equipped for any type of meal we wanted to make. The interior of the home is laid out very well and on nice days we hung out in the backyard enjoying the view, as well as the fire pit! Very private, didn't hear the neighbors at all. And Arch Cape is located just close enough to grocery stores, shopping and daily excursions for hiking that you aren't immersed in the tourism and crowds of staying in one of the small towns close by. This house is a solid refuge from the hustle and bustle of the outside world, we would definitely stay again.- Anonymous U , Posted: 02/02/2021
This long weekend was just what we needed. The winter storms were awesome to watch from the comfort of the house. The short walk to beach access was smaller than anticipated. I would have like instructions on the fireplace flue.- Anonymous U , Posted: 12/25/2020
This house is a gem! It's private, homey and cozy with a pretty unbeatable view of Castle Rock and the roaring waves. This house accommodated our family perfectly with plenty of places to lounge and unwind. The window seat was the prime spot to have morning coffee and enjoy the view. It was very hard to leave but we will definitely be renting this home again! 10/10 recommend.- Anonymous U , Posted: 11/18/2020
Perfect Home for our Arch Cape Escape!
This house was perfect for our stay in Arch Cape. We have 2 adult couples with plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. We used the fireplace everyday and loved sitting on the patio watching the waves. The backyard is very private and has a great view of the ocean. The beach entrance is just a few houses down and an easy less than 5 min walk. Wifi worked great and we actually didn't even notice that there wasn't a TV. The entire house was very clean and had really everything we needed. Thanks again to the wonderful staff at Starfish for always keeping us up to date on things and checking in on us. We will be repeat renters for sure!- Kim M from Scottsdale , Posted: 09/22/2020
Perfect Coast View
We washed away the stress of work and family and just soaked in the view. Every day was another beautiful sunset. We forgot how quiet and private Arch Cape is. Wish we could come every August for the month.- Anonymous U , Posted: 08/18/2020
This place was great for a family weekend. The view of the ocean is wonderful and the place feels very private. The hone is nicely furnished and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked for eating in. Great hiking nearby and shopping and good restaurants are easy to drive to- Marcia M , Posted: 02/08/2020
It was magical. This is the third time we have stayed at this property. What I especially appreciated was that I got a text at check in to make sure that everything was ok (it was). This was great because we needed to reach out to the management company to address an quirky technical issue with the door lock and also to know who to call when the power went out due to high winds (to get an ETA on power restoration). Can't recommend this house highly enough.- Katherine L , Posted: 01/09/2020
Perfect Location for Weekend Escape
This was a great home for our family ladies weekend get away. We enjoyed the beach view and having coffee out on the deck.- Kathy B , Posted: 12/04/2019
One and Done
We love the Starfish Vacation Rentals Group and have stayed at several of their rentals over the years. We recently stayed at Arch Cape Escape. Although they had warned us that this rental was very “rustic”, that term does not cover “old and worn out”. Although the view is wonderful, the interior and exterior of the house does not fit the quality level of the rest of the Starfish rentals and brings down their overall brand of the properties they represent. The furniture in the living room needs to be replaced; the couch was very uncomfortable (you sink down three inches) and the wicker furniture had all kinds of holes in the sides of them, making them dangerous for little fingers. Although we enjoyed the window bench seat, the overhead light fixtures get very hot and the cords are just plugged into the wall with the cords just dangling down the wall or behind the cushions (not safe). The carpet is stained and needs to be replaced. There are no windows that open in the living room – only the sliding glass door and there is no screen on the door. There is one window that opens in the kitchen- again no screen. It made for a very warm interior in the afternoons with no cross ventilation. The guest beds were very hard and uncomfortable (the mattresses need to be replaced), and the linens were worn and faded. The bathrooms are tiny (there is not even an outlet in the master bathroom), but at least there were plenty of towels provided. The back deck needs some serious maintenance – it needs to be sanded and refinished. You certainly cannot walk without shoes on it for fear of splinters. The backyard is very uneven with muddy holes and grass/weeds for a lawn. The kitchen was probably the best area with the most room, although there was not a single non-stick pan in the house (try cooking scrambled eggs in stainless pan!) and the table was a tight fit for more than 4 people. This was definitely a disappointing house and we will not b- Rochelle L , Posted: 10/27/2019
Relaxing and enjoyable stay
We stayed for four nights and enjoyed the fantastic view and short walk down to the beach. The home is very spacious and well kept. Would stay again in the future.- Darrell E , Posted: 10/13/2019
Great time by all.
We met family and friends from different parts of the great state of Oregon. Arch Cape Escape was very clean, comfortable, roomy and enjoyed by everyone. We all had a very memorable stay. Thank you!- MARYLYNN P , Posted: 09/24/2019
Really enjoyed out stay at Arch Cape Escape. Comfortable, relaxing for our extended family & dog. Great location. At check in, house smelled musty (smoky cabin) but this cleared out quickly by opening the windows and was not a problem the rest of our stay. House and kitchen were well equipped, just recommend a few beach chairs. Hope to come back soon!- Mariah S , Posted: 08/26/2019
Beautiful spot but the house needs some work.
Beautiful spot but the house needs some work. The house is situated on a beautiful small bluff overlooking the ocean and is very stunning. The house itself needs some updating. The carpets have stains the cushions have stains in the couches are old and musty. Towels and pillows need to be replaced. The kitchen is a high spot of the house and very functional and a cozy place to cook. Beds are in good shape . The property manager does an excellent job of helping throughout your stay is any need to come up. All in all a very cabin feel to the house which could be magnificent with some basic upgrades in the view that overshadows everything else.- Bradley M , Posted: 08/11/2019
Loved this location and vacation rental. Really enjoyed the privacy in the yards and the view of the ocean. We hope to go back soon!- Theresa C , Posted: 07/14/2019
This as a perfect house and location for our cousin week get together. Would return in a minute.- Kathryn K , Posted: 06/14/2019
We love staying here ! Everything is just right - the view , the comfortable window seat, well equipped kitchen and breakfast table. We love falling asleep to the sounds of the waves. This is our second time staying here and hope to come back year after year!- Jackie H , Posted: 06/06/2019
Perfect Home to Reconnect and Relax
My family and I try to return at least once a year to this home. It’s an escape and chance to reconnect, relax and spend quality time together. We crave visiting all year long!- Kelli L F , Posted: 05/15/2019
Wonderful home with a fabulous view. Great layout, loved the full window seats to sit at and watch the weather and waves! Beds were comfy though the queen has a bit too much “motion”, plenty of towels, dishes and the basic supplies. No kindling or newspaper to start the fire though, that would be my only negative. Oh, and the fact there are no instructions as to how the radio/stereo works. Never figured that out.- Kathleen M , Posted: 04/11/2019
had to be one of the most relaxing weekend getaways. the home is close to beach access in either direction. short drive to cannon beach and manzanita. definitely will be back for the spring/summer months- Jason H , Posted: 02/20/2019
Great retreat for recharge and relaxation- Ron B , Posted: 01/22/2019
Wonderful Get Away
The house was cute and charming. The bay windows were set up perfectly for spending the day watching the ocean, and for reading. I suppose the rest of the house was great, but I never left the bay window. :)- Sarah F , Posted: 12/23/2018
Relaxing girls weekend getaway
Our experience was nice and relaxing, however, it did not meet our families needs. Though short walk to beach, we were hoping to walk to beach directly to the ocean from house rather than walk a few blocks down neighborhood. The house smelled musty and sheets in main bedroom smelled the same. The upper bunk in back bedroom had sand on sheets. Bunk beds were very uncomfortable, too firm, no give. Furniture was satisfactory to sit on, but couch very lumpy. The house was very quiet and provided amenities as described. The grounds were very nice.- Rhonda L , Posted: 11/17/2018
Arch Cape Escape Never disappoints
We have rented this same beach house at least 6 times. We love the convenience of the location just out of Cannon Beach, the beach is steps away and is usually sparsely occupied. The house it's self is comfy and well stocked with many kitchen items and we cook many meals in the home. Plenty of space for our 2 families for 6 days.- Jennifer C , Posted: 11/08/2018
We love arch cape escape. The home is so cozy the views are amazing. So nice with no TV we listened to music and played games. Great place to reconnect. But the best part for us is that we could bring our dog with us!- Lisa P , Posted: 11/06/2018
Fabulous location. Peaceful, quite and renewing. Beach access is approximately 3-4 houses away and is an easy walk, very little slope. The property is set directly on the ocean, on a fairly high bluff which decreases any strong off-shore winds. The garden on the beach has a nice deck and a great grass lawn with chaise lounges. The view from the home is great as long as you are standing up. Was disappointed that the hedges at edge of bluff prevented a direct view of the ocean; same as the glassed in window seat. Home is wonderful and fully stocked, new appliances. I would return again if the carpets were replaced and the bedding was new. Home needed decluttering and minor renovations; overall deep clean. Yet, it was peaceful and charming. Recommend if previous suggestions were completed.- Laura A , Posted: 11/03/2018
Arch Cape Escape-our Christmas gift
We had a fabulous 4 night stay at Arch Cape Escape. We discovered Arch Cape last Spring. we needed a bigger place because we had 6 ppl and 2 dogs. The layout is awesome for a group this size and the ocean view is amazing. Love having the beach almost to yourself and it helped the weather was amazing! We were actually able to soak up some sun rays on the deck the most of one day. We also went crabbing and got 6 keepers which was enough for a meal and some apps. Everything was as described and easy check in check out. Would definitely recommend to friends and relatives.- Cheryl C , Posted: 10/14/2018

Lovely piece of paradise
We had a wonderful time on the beach. The area is quiet and perfect for relaxation.- Rebecca H , Posted: 03/25/2018
This house truly is an escape. It’s perfect for two couples or two small families. The kitchen has everything you need and you can cook with a view of the ocean. The weather was perfect and we were able to enjoy the deck - and the sunsets did not disappoint. We had such a nice time we already booked again for next year!- Patti G , Posted: 03/14/2018
Memorable trip with 4 generations!
Very comfortable house! Felt like home right away! Celebrated a fourth birthday! We will be back on a yearly basis! Thank you staff for being so attentive to our needs.- Bonnie J , Posted: 03/08/2018
