You Snooze, You Lose!


That's right. You snooze, you lose! Always plan ahead for best selection - and ask about last-minute deals, too!  


While most reservations in August are for longer stays, we always have 'gaps' between rentals that you can book*. Of course the sooner you call, the better! 
There's still time to book your summer fun.

*Weekend 2-Night stays during August are subject to a nightly surcharge. Please call for details.


A-Bed-for-Every-Head Occupancy Policy

As a reminder for our renters, OceanEdge can only rent a home to the maximum number of people as are beds in the home. Hence the "a bed for every head" phrase.

If you have an occasion you're planning such as a graduation, reunion, anniversary or wedding, we will be happy to help you book a local facility to accommodate your event and, of course, additional homes as needed to ensure everyone sleeps comfortably.

Let us know in advance to ensure your event is the best and most stress-free it can be!

Beach at Lae Nani.  
Right now it's low season in Hawaii. You can get away to luxurious accommodations in our Kauai condominium, Lae Nani, for only $125/night.

At Lae Nani you'll enjoy the stunning ocean view from your own lanai, walks on the beach and sunbathing by the heated pool. The Coconut Plantation Martketplace is only a short walk away for casual dining and unique shopping.

We are having a stellar summer here in Manzanita and we hope you are, too! With temperatures in the 60s and light ocean breezes, your morning walk on the beach is especially refreshing. Early mornings are best to stretch your legs and fill your lungs with clean air like nowhere else! There is no rain in the forecast as far ahead as we can see, and we always have gaps in longer reservations as well as occasional cancellations, so call us if you want to escape to your favorite little place on the north Oregon coast.

And remember, the lodging tax goes up in the City of Manzanita on October 1st, so now is the time to make your reservation. Check out our events calendar to see if there is something special you would like to do while you're here, too!    
New! Introducing Manzanita Heights -
Book in August for a Special Discount! 
Manzanita Heights street view.

Manzanita Heights is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood in the hills on the north end of Manzanita. This elegantly decorated two-story duplex is perfect for two couples or a family of five seeking a quiet retreat. The soothing color palette in the great  room lets you relax and escape the stress of your busy lifestyle. Open the windows and slider and enjoy the sound of the ocean surf. This gorgeous home simply radiates serenity.  

  Manzanita Heights living room.

The main living area on the upper level is an open great room for relaxing and socializing, while the TV entertainment is on the ground level (and includes a twin bed with adjacent full bath). Two beautiful queen bedrooms and a bath are also on the upper level. 


The single-car garage is great for all your beach toys. The sun deck off the living area is perfect for relaxing and tanning.   

Manzanita Heights master bedroom.


Manzanita Heights is, of course, an easy downhill stroll to the beach, but be prepared for the uphill return! For your evening campfires on the beach, you will probably take the car - you'll want something to carry your firewood and marshmallow sticks!  


Manzanita Heights is available for rent starting September 14th. Your small dog (20 lbs or less) is welcome to stay, too!  Please call us at 866-368-3343 to inquire. 


If you book your stay for September or October right now before August 31st, we will give a 30% discount on the nightly rent!  


      September Savings Ahead

Celebrating Our Repeat Renters

The Sittons have been in Manzanita for the Fourth of July since their adult children were toddlers.  We have been happy to welcome them to Avalon for the last 16 summers, and we hope to see them every summer for many many years to come.


The Sitton Family at Avalon.
The Sittons, like many repeat renters with OceanEdge, book their preferred two weeks for the following summer before the last day of this year's vacation!  We hold the dates for them, and they get the advantage of this year's rates, even if rates go up in September. If this is where you want to be next summer, we're happy to help you book a full year in advance! 

Thank you very much to the Sitton family for your loyalty. We sincerely appreciate your business and wish you many happy summers to come at Avalon in Manzanita.
