Trying to decide whether the charm of a coastal cottage or the comfort of an up-to-date beach abode best suits your next seaside vacation? There’s no need to agonize! This two-bedroom, two-bathroom home, nestled in a cozy enclave of Tolovana Park just between the ocean and the trees, offers nostalgic vacation-goers the very best of both worlds.
From the exterior, Bunbury by the Sea exudes classic Cannon Beach appeal, with all the charm you’d expect from a vintage local cottage, but make no mistake – it’s also got a wealth of up-to-date amenities packed into its surprisingly spacious interior. Wander down the long..., breezy front yard path and in through the cheery yellow door. Inside, you’ll discover all the comforts of a well-equipped beach home: airy ceilings, rich wood floors and modern appliances, all brought to life in a soothing, summery palette of yellows and green.
In this cottage, cozy, shared spaces are key: the downstairs kitchen features plenty of windows to let in that soft, seashore sunlight, plus a gas stove and a table large enough to seat six of your favorite dining companions. Additional living spaces include a comfy downstairs living room and an upstairs den perfect for unwinding with a movie after a long day of beach-combing.
The master bedroom, located on the main floor, offers a serene view of the trees, while upstairs, an additional bedroom and a pullout couch offer secluded spaces for settling in.
A good dose of classic cottage charm also remains throughout Bunbury, from its playful flora-and-fauna-inspired décor to the quaint and dainty claw foot tub in the upstairs bathroom to the old-fashioned tree swing hanging in the side yard.
The home’s outside areas offer plenty more options for entertaining, exploring and unwinding. Meditate on the ocean’s roar and bask in the sun’s strongest rays in the private front yard, slip into the side garden’s hammock seat with your favorite beach read.
It’s modern meets vintage in this captivating little cottage – and we think you’ll be glad you came.

This place is adorable. It was private enough for my mother and my significant to share and walkable to everywhere we wanted to be. It was super nice for my dog, very accommodating.
There are two bathrooms but we did not really use the upstairs one. Good thing the downstairs one was so adiquate. The walk-in shower was a bonus for my mother.
Enjoyed the hot tub, the yard and the location!

We absolutely enjoyed our stay here. Cannon Beach Vacation Rentals were very prompt in attending to anything that needed attention in the house like a broken cabinet door and a lightbulb out.
We loved the location, such a short walk to the beach. We enjoyed staying further away from the larger crowds of midbeach although even then it wasn't very busy.
The yard was great for the kids to run around and I could keep an eye on them through the kitchen window as I made food. We absolutely had a great time. If you are looking for a house with an updated TV though this is not the location but we were not looking for any TV time so it did not matter to us.
