At the south end of the Long Beach peninsula lies a large basalt headland consisting of forested hilltops and magnificent capes overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The breathtaking views will have you drawn in the second you lay your eyes on the property that will become Discovery Heights.
A sunset over vast waters, an open-air breeze from your boat rental, and the feeling of riding horseback along the beach, a vacation in Discovery Heights will have you feeling like you just stepped out of your favorite movie. The imagery is just too incredible to describe – you have to see it for yourself.
But there’s just one problem – this development doesn’t exist yet.
In today’s vacation rental market, one thing seems to be on everyone’s mind – the demand for new vacation rental properties.
At a time post-pandemic when, thankfully, many property managers and homeowners seem to have no issues booking their vacation rental properties, the focus has turned toward homeowner acquisition and the purchase of new rental properties.
But where is this inventory going to come from?

Florida, Texas, South Carolina, and Tennessee – all are states where vacation rental properties are happily invited to exist within existing residential zoning. In places like these, finding new inventory for vacation rentals faces little difficulty.
However, this isn’t the case in most places.
States like Oregon and Washington face the challenge of local towns and counties restricting the growth of vacation rentals.
So in this time when we are turning our focus to the growth of the vacation rental industry, new purpose-built vacation rental resorts are a solution to our problem.
From a marketing perspective, purpose-built niche properties lend themselves to booking directly and less reliance on OTAs to attract guests.
These properties are purposefully built with you in mind. With the goal of providing new vacation rentals, the building of a purpose-built property requires thorough research, attention to detail, and deep understanding of the chosen market.
Enter Discovery Heights
With a magnificent combination of location, history and demographics coupled with one gorgeous piece of property, Discovery Heights is ready to become an extraordinary vacation rental resort – a purpose-built development.
Located between two booming Portland and Seattle metropolitan areas lies this resort development that will house around 450 luxury units. The acreage of Discovery Heights lies just along Lewis & Clark National Park, and amenities include breathtaking ocean views, two local lighthouses, world-renowned trails for hiking, and popular Cape Disappointment State Park. The current owners of the Discovery Heights acreage all have personal ties to the local communities going back to the 1800s and have dreamt of and encouraged the development of a large-scale resort at the site.
The owners of Discovery Heights have been inspired by other successful purpose-built neighborhoods, like Seabrook, WA, to develop this impeccable piece of land into a place for all of us to enjoy.
Envision yourself at this destination development enjoying breathtaking ocean views, lighthouse walks, quick access to miles of coastal rainforest and protected state parks, sunset horse rides and enjoying a quintessential beach trip experience all right outside your back door.
Discovery Heights the Solution to Our Industry Challenges?
We in the vacation rental industry are in need of new vacation rental properties as the demand for bookings only continues to grow. Purpose-built properties just may be the answer.
