Other things to note

The community of Arch Cape and State of Oregon charge 10.5% tax that will added to all rentals. The 1% Oregon Room Tax is added to your Airbnb fees. Since AirBnB does not collect the 9.5% Arch Cape local room tax for this locale, direct payment to the owner is necessary. I find it simpler to provide an all-inclusive "special offer" via AirBnB.

• There is an outdoor shower to clean up when returning to the beach. Please avoid bringing beach sand into the house and please towel dry all dogs before entering the house.

Please roll the grill a minimum of ten feet away from the garage door onto the driveway and under no circumstance operate the gas grill in the confines of the garage.

In the event the tank becomes empty, there is a spare tank in the crawl space of the house at the west end of the deck.

Two Weber charcoal grills (22.5” and 12”) are provided and stored in the garage. I try to make charcoal available.
•Do not operate any of the grills on the wood deck under any circumstances.

Thanks for staying at Malarkey's Roost as well as the heads up on having more box fans. 90+ degree days are very, very unusual in Arch Cape. Summer 2017 has been extraordinarily hot and dry.

Our week at Malarkey's Roost was absolutely wonderful! The house was large and comfortable - especially the beds! And extremely clean and well supplied. The kitchen was perfect for all of us cooking together and serving amazing meals. Most of us really enjoyed the beach though the rocks before the sand make it difficult for the oldsters to access. Seven cousins who had not been together in many years made memories for a lifetime, both sleeping out on the beach by a fire and playing games in the house. Each couple had a beautiful space for privacy and the large deck served us well for catching sun or for catching up with each other. John and Sharon are sharing a real treasure here! Don't miss it!

Response from John And Sharon:
Sandy, thanks so much for choosing Malarkey's Roost and writing such a thoughtful review. It is very rewarding to get feed back such as yours. Regarding the beach across from the house. The past winter was one of the most ferocious in several years and a series of storms with high winds and very high tides pushed the rocks into a shelf compared to the gentle slope of previous years. It is my hope to organize a work party build a level and more walkable path directly to the sand as been done on other beach access trails in Arch Cape. John and Sharon Hill Everett, WA

My family and I had an amazing Memorial Day weekend at Malarkey's Roost! The pictures of the house are already amazing but they can't do it justice to what it is in person. What a lovely home and a location you cannot beat!

Malarkey's Roost is a cozy, well appointed home with ocean views. The location has easy beach access for walks on the beach. We had 10 adults and 1 child in our party. The beds and linens were soft and comfy. Five king size beds! My husband and I stayed over the garage in a separate building. At first I was a little put out because the bathroom was down the stairs, and in a little room in the garage, but it wasn't all that bad. Great heater in the bathroom, good shower, and all the privacy you could want. No problem! The decor in the house is casual and pleasant. The kitchen is beautiful and well equipped with quality cookware and cooking utensils. We lacked nothing. Beautiful windows throughout the home to enjoy the views.

Our family had a most wonderful stay at Malarkey's roost, over a glorious weekend of sunshine at Arch Cape beach. The house is right across the lane, a very short walk to a beautiful broad and long beach, that was great for walking, exploring and playing. The house is spacious and gracious, very warm, bright and light, welcoming and comfortable. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is super well equipped, quite large and fun to cook in as a group. There is a huge deck, a lovely grassy yard and a gorgeous water fall right out the door. Our grand daughter was ecstatic to find all the beach toys, including kites to fly! We all loved the great sound system we could plug phones in to, and rocked out listening to The Beatles while working a large jigsaw puzzle under the Beatles poster in the living room! Our only complaint was that we couldn't have stayed longer. The owners are very responsive and communicative and made everything so easy. I would recommend Malarkey's Roost very highly!

My wife Sharon and I have had a love affair with the Oregon Coast all of our lives together. Sharon was born in Astoria and her ancestors were Oregon pioneers who settled in the area prior to statehood. Malarkey's Roost is named for them. The Oregon coast is our legacy and destiny. We spent many vacations coming to Cannon Beach and carried a long time dream of owning a home here. We have a large and still growing family. We celebrate the family love in gatherings at the coast and its myriad activities.
I love the outdoors and keeping active. One of my favorite things is holding court in the kitchen and cooking for a crowd; enjoying sips and bites with my twin brother as a co-chef.
