It was a pleasure to stay at the Purcell House. Rooms were large and well-appointed, beds were comfortable, and the views were outstanding. We cooked and found just about all the basics we needed, including spices! Lots of games, including a nice pool table, kept us busy, and it's an easy walk to the beach and into town. High praise to Starfish for setting our expectations appropriately and making our stay an easy one.- Nathan R from Portland, OR, Posted: 03/01/2021
Superb views, comfortable house, we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

As expected, the views, and design around them were world class. Yes the house is lovely, too in its 50’s way though there’s nothing to brag about in the kitchen (except, for me, I really loved the little desk area behind the stove). Overall, we had a delightful time and thoroughly enjoyed it. The kitchen supplies need a complete redo though. And we all loved the grounds and gardens. That’s about it!- Anonymous U , Posted: 01/28/2021
Beautiful mid-century house with ocean views from every room. The first half of our trip was rainy and gray but the views were still gorgeous. The house was clean and had everything we needed. Bathrooms were probably the most worn down but they were clean. Management was responsive, quick, and friendly.

Exceptional Vacation Home
The Purcell House has been lovingly maintained in its original 50's rancher style... charming and welcoming. The thoughtful new furnishings are comfortable and well designed, with lots of room for everyone. The interior layout accommodates a variety of activities. And the Views!!! Breathtaking south, west, and north ocean views are to live for! Private and quiet, a perfect retreat. Spacious bedrooms, beautiful grounds. Exceptional housekeeping by Starfish. Lovely welcome basket, perfectly clean, well equipped with all essentials. Truly an exceptional property managed by a top notch hospitality team. Looking forward to returning often! Thank you to the owner for making this beautiful home available, and to Angela at Starfish who was professional and personable in every way.- Jennifer E from Prosser, Posted: 10/10/2020
A wonderful house. A perfect setting. Three marvelous weeks living on the stormy Oregon coast in the middle of winter. Just outstanding! We hosted our adult family of seven, plus grand baby; two sets of guests and had time on our own with just the two of us. The Purcell House is magnificent for all combinations and Starfish Vacation Rentals does an outstanding management job -- including the provision of a decorated Christmas tree! I would buy this place if it were for sale. Just great!- Thomas M , Posted: 01/20/2020
Most Beautiful Place On Earth
Our stay at this stunning house was too short. This beautifully curated home is the perfect place to spend quality time with friends and family, to reconnect with each other and with the surrounding beauty of the Oregon coast. Thank you for showing us how special life can be.- Shana L , Posted: 12/16/2019
Beautiful Purcell House makes a wonderful vacation spot
We had a fantastic time at the Purcell House. It was just as it appeared in the photos. The views were amazing and the house was very clean and well maintained. The location is amazing. What a pleaseure to stay there. The rental company was very easy to work with and gave us great information to make our stay easy.- Chris W , Posted: 10/10/2019
This is a lovely and comfortable home with great views from all windows. The grounds are beautifully maintained. It is somewhat of a destination home...close to Manzanita and 13 miles from Cannon Beach. Beds were comfy, kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and utensils. This is a wonderful escape.- William M , Posted: 09/21/2019
Our stay at the Purcell House
We celebrated our daugher's 40h birthday at the Purcell House. It was perfect! The view was incredible, the house very comfortable and well maintained. The kitchen was well supplied and spacious for our Oaxacan dinner. Hope to come back.- Karen S , Posted: 03/05/2019
Beautiful property and easy communication with Starfish- Kelly M , Posted: 01/14/2019
We celebrated a 50th Birthday with all the family. The weather was beautiful, the view fantastic and the house beyond wonderful. We will come back.- Priscilla D , Posted: 11/13/2018
We had a great time at the Purcell House. You can tell as you approach the hidden drive that you are in for a private treat (and retreat). The house is fantastic and fully outfitted. As a lover of garages, particularly empty ones, I did make an input to the management agency to provide a small "keychain" type remote control for the garage. You can park your car in there, but not "real" convenient in the rain to get out of your car to go back in the house to close the door. This is minor, but would be a nice touch. Management company (Starfish) was super friendly and accommodating.- Robb H , Posted: 10/30/2018
Beautiful location and views, comfortable large ranch house
Extraordinary views in many directions. Very nice property. There are neighbors but you don't really see them at all. House is kind of 1950s/1960s style decorations but in very good shape. Note to property management company: Using that Hospitality app was mostly just an annoyance. It sent all kinds of messages that were bothersome/intrusive on a vacation. But I had trouble getting response when I did have small issues/questions. I'd suggest skipping the app and providing an email address, and checking it regularly.- Hal P , Posted: 09/22/2018
Picture Windows onto the Pacific Coast!
The most gorgeous, private setting I have ever found on the Oregon Coast! This is retro luxury in the most perfect of settings! What a great place to relax and enjoy the phenomenal Oregon Coast. Perfect for a large group and affordable if splitting the cost between couples.- Ronald C , Posted: 09/09/2018
What a great house for a family vacation in the cool summer! The beds were comfortable, the kitchen equipped with all the necessary tools and walking distance from the quiet, relaxing beach! So fun picking blackberries every day and enjoying nearby Cannon Beach!- Maribeth and Mark J , Posted: 08/16/2018
The home is absolutely wonderful! It fit our family perfectly/ We will certainly be back.- Jerry B , Posted: 08/06/2018
BEST spot in Oregon
I truly can't say enough wonderful things about this mid century home. Not only is it immaculate, but it was perfect for our family of 9. Perfect!! Every morning I would sit by the North window with a hot cup of coffee enjoying the spectacular views of the beach and mountain and for dinner I would eat outside on the south side to take in the energy of the beach. Far enough away from the beach access to feel like you are all alone, but close enough to walk easily. As much as I want to keep this place a secret, it just wouldn't be right! You will not be disappoined!!- jami d , Posted: 07/17/2018
50th Bday Weekend!
Booked and stayed at the Purcell home late June. Arrived Thursday evening, stayed thru Sunday Morning. Everything was just as advertised. The home was spacious and the views were spectacular. Plenty of parking for cars, plenty of room indoors and out for all guests. Easy walk, even easier bike ride to the beach. Never heard a peep from any of the neighbors. Had deer walking thru the property a few times. Fire wood amply stocked, everything worked in the home, it was clean and tidy...such a perfect layout and setting. Will definitely book again.- Louis F , Posted: 07/12/2018
