Four Interesting Oregon Coast Properties Listed for Sale

Flashback in Seaside

(Oregon Coast) – For those looking for a brand new home in the Newport area, or a business and living opportunity in north coast towns like Cannon Beach or Seaside, the sun may have just come out on your coastal dream. There is some prime real estate available in some interesting places.

Condo-hotel that offers the amenities of a fine hotel, but also includes ownership of a vacation home on the north Oregon coast. It is a unique opportunity, as condo owners have an opportunity to share in the revenues of their unit. All have either spectacular, nearly aerial views of the ocean and city, or they gaze out at the lush forests of the coast range mountains. There are private balconies in all rooms, which come as studios or units with one bedroom or two - as large as 850 square feet. Each is fully furnished. $189,000 to $449,000, (with most in the $300,000 range.) When owners are not using their units, they may be rented out as hotel rooms, and owners may share in those revenues. Two new homes have just become listed in the Newport area, a dockside business space with a condo above have hit the market in that town, an enormous castle-like structure that is used for a B&B near Cannon Beach is for sale, and a hopping malt shop business in Seaside is for sale as well. All offer some very unique opportunities and living spaces on the laidback and pristine Oregon coast.

If your dream is to own and run your own quaint business on Oregon’s coast, the energetic town of Seaside has quite the tourism proposition for you. Flashback Malt Shoppe sells nostalgia in the form of a very authentic-feeling retro ice cream shop, as well as licensed collectibles from bygone eras of the 50’s, 30’s or even the 20’s. Now, Flashback itself is for sale, as owners Gary and Marjorie Diebolt are asking $180,000 for this little slice of yesterday.

It's a place so cool Elvis even came back from the dead to hang out

It’s a long-established business with a solid reputation and a hopping storefront right on Broadway, the main drag of most tourism activity in Seaside.


THE TIDES BY THE SEA, Seaside. For over 80 years a favorite of Seaside visitors. 51 oceanfront condos, individually owned and decorated. Suites for couples, small apartments with fireplaces and kitchenettes, one or two bed family units with fireplaces, kitchens and dining rooms. Oceanview cottages sleep anywhere from two to eight, w/ two bedrooms, some with lofts, fireplaces and kitchens. Heated outdoor pool, enormous grounds w/ picnic tables - all at quiet southern end of Seaside. 2316 Beach Drive. 800-548-2846. www.thetidesbythesea.com.

The time-trippin’, vintage décor is accentuated by teal vinyl seating in the six booths. The 60’s era counter seats another eight, with a real vintage soda fountain from the 60’s pouring out the good, sweet stuff a faithful stable of kids and adults have sucked down here for years. Malt mixers by Hamilton are the real thing, made in the 40’s and refurbished. The malt dispenser hails from the 20’s.

It’s a business born of love, inspired by the Diebolt’s early days hanging out in soda fountains back in the 50’s. This sense of joy and fun shows, too. It’s here where you can also pick up loads of nostalgic goodies like Betty Boop, Disney, Marilyn, Lucy and Elvis. There are signs like “Route 66” along with other cultural icons as well.

For more information, call Marjorie or Gary at 503-717-8530, or 503-522-6555.

Arch Cape House: own your own castle on the coast

In tiny Arch Cape, just south of Cannon Beach, your home can literally be your castle. Arch Cape House, currently owned by Barbara Dau, is a working bed and breakfast with an unusual architecture: it’s built to look like a castle. There’s a kind of alpine lodge vibe about it as well, giving it an intriguing European flair on different levels, in the midst of the rustic and dramatic Oregon coast. Dau is selling it as a B&B, or it could be a massive company retreat house, a shared vacation home or a grand permanent residence.

Tradewinds Motel, Rockaway Beach. All rooms are immaculate and have TV’s, VCR’s and in-room phones with data ports.

(503) 355-2112 - 1-800-824-0938. www.tradewinds-motel.com

This beautiful and dynamic structure is going for $1.95 million, (Dau is presently selling it herself). It comes with nine bedrooms, nine and a half bathrooms, a sauna, an ocean view from the upper floor, and a stunning atmosphere you have to experience to believe. A large deck stretches across the front of the building – perfect for catching the last rays of those perfectly lazy coastal days.

There are 10,000 sq. feet on 1.5 acres, all across the street from the pristine beaches of Arch Cape, one of the coast’s loveliest hidden beaches. It’s about four miles south of Cannon Beach and its numerous wonderful eateries and amenities, and about five miles north of sleepy, charming Manzanita. Surrounding it is a myriad of thick forests – and of course, those addicting beaches. View the building as a bed and breakfast at www.archcapehouse.com. Call Barbara at 1-800-436-2848

Interior of one of the two homes, just waiting for further instructions on finishing from the buyer

In the exceptionally cozy and charming neighborhood of Nye Beach, in the bustling town of Newport, developer Ian Clayman and his family are offering up two more brand new homes, a short walk from the beaches. They’ve recently built and sold a couple, and some more are planned down the line.

The developers will finish per their instructions. Both are around 1700 square feet or more, with ocean views, and only a half a block to the strand.

oregon coast lighthouses on dvdBoth come with three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, which feature double “Jack & Jill” sinks.

Each has a gas fireplace and ocean view deck, with garages accessible from a common driveway. Vinyl garage doors are installed, and there are five cable jacks and five phone jacks. Rods and shelves will be installed in all bed and vanity closets.

The dock and pier at 875 SW Bay Blvd.

Along Newport’s bayfront – also a bustling, atmospheric spot that’s hard to resist - an intriguing set of business spots are now open for lease. They are part of 875 SW Bay Blvd., which is a group of retail spaces, along with a condo above, that have their own dock and pier. Approximately 8,000 sq. feet comprise this area altogether, with two of three spots still available. This free-standing building has its own private parking along with the pier, and is positioned at the west end of Newport's Historic Bay Front next to the publicly accessed Bay Street Pier and the U.S. Coast Guard Station.

Space number one is already leased. Space number two has frontage to the street and the pier, clocking in at approximately 800 sq. feet. There’s a USDA/FDA-approved polyester Monterey Beach sand floor and insulated FRP wall panels.

Space three is on the waterfront with amazing, unobstructed views of Yaquina Bay. There’s approximately 3000 sq. feet here, including the dock, as well as a USDA/FDA-approved polyester Monterey Beach sand floor and insulated FRP wall panels, along with dock and water access.

One of the leasable spaces at Bay Blvd., with one heck of a view

Marketer Casey Miller said one of these places would make a great tasting room. There’s a lot going on in this area as well, he said, with a rapidly growing, upscale population and other changes.

Feed the seals! One of the oldest aquariums in the U.S. is here in Seaside, Oregon, right on the Promenade“Newport has steadily grown into a thriving fishing harbor, commercial center and tourist destination,” Miller said. “With turn-of-the-century storefronts and the scent of cooking crab and artwork, the Bayfront offers a fascinating walking tour. The city has turned this one-mile strip into a gigantic canvas for artists. This seaboard district offers art galleries, gift shops, fresh seafood markets, chowder houses, restaurants, marine tours, whale watching and one really large sport fishing fleet.”
