Welcome to the Owlhaven
An ocean-view home with space for your whole family
“I feel like the owners thought of it all…”
This is an awesome vacation destination for families and friends. Designed for big groups, the kitchen, dining and sleeping areas are perfect for a variety of ages and needs. The "boat room" with 4 built in bunks is the stuff of kids' dreams, and you know if the kids are happy, everyone is happy. The kitchen is superbly designed and laid out so that the cooks are happy and spoiled. Private spaces throughout the house for downtime, minutes from beautiful sandy beaches, handicapped accessible... I feel like the owners thought of it all. I stayed in the Princess Room and woke to the prettiest sunrises... Felt like waking up in a luxury treehouse! I highly recommend!
“Views from the main living room are gorgeous.”
We have LOTS of teenagers and it was so nice that they could watch a movie downstairs at night while we enjoyed some quiet upstairs, or our younger kids could watch a movie while we played games with the teens. Cooking and dining together was easy and enjoyable with the large kitchen, island, and all the utensils, pots, and appliances you would ever need.
There were some fun shops and beaches in the surrounding towns. We enjoyed going south to Waldport to eat at the pizza place and the local Chinese restaurant. Both were family friendly and affordable. Also south, we enjoyed Devil's Churn to watch the ocean spray. We highly recommend Owlhaven! You won't be disappointed."

“The dining area and kitchen are a chef’s dream.”
Heading upstairs there is a cool stair chair to use if someone needed for going up and down for health reasons. The stairs are wide enough it isn't in the way for multiple people using the stairs at the same time. The best way to describe upstairs is FANTASTIC!!!! There are two walls that are almost solid windows with great views of the ocean, not just a little peak, but full on you can see the ocean type views. The living room area sits 8+ people next to a fireplace, if needed, in a very warm and inviting area. Small windows open up allowing you to hear the ocean.
The dining area and kitchen are a chef's dream. The main table sit 10 and there is a bar against the windows that sits another six. The kitchen is wide and spacious with 2 dishwashers, lots of counter spaces and a island with the sink built into it. The kitchen is stocked with all the pots and pans, plenty of dinnerware, and all the gadgets needed for cooking almost any meal. The entire area upstairs feels very open with being able to see everyone at all angles. There is a large deck off the dining area with picnic table and a small bbq for enjoying sitting outside and enjoying the sound of the ocean. You can take the stairs down to the side yard and the hot tub for relaxing.
There is a third King suite upstairs that is well oversized for any need. Windows off the back of the house gives you a mountain view with a private deck which has views of the bridge. This room is wheel chair, handicap accessible with dual sinks, and a walk in shower. The shower is the 'shower of showers'. It offers multiple spray heads and body jets to clean all spaces on the body. A nice size closet, dresser, and chaise rounds out the room.
Every part of this house screams luxury but inviting peaceful comfort. It is a top notch house that was thought out very well when they built it. The layout showcases the openness to the ocean upstairs, while downstairs caters sleeping areas. There are TV's in all the main areas as well as all the suites. I cannot stress enough how warm and inviting the house feels with being luxurious. We had 15 in the house and at no point did it ever feel crowded or felt like anyone was on top of anyone else.
