Bedrooms 5
Half Baths1
Space 3,000 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Our home sits right on the Promenade in Seaside Oregon and has unobstructed panoramic views of the ocean out five large picture windows on the front of the house. Enjoy whale watching, the surfers and the vacationers walking on the Prom. The deck in the front makes it very enjoyable to sit and sunbath or read while enjoying music from your own personal recorded music device and the beautiful ocean views.

The house has been totally remodeled with granite and marble counter tops throughout, tiled floors in some areas and hardwoods in others. The remodeling of the bathrooms even includes heated floors. We did however maintain the cozy warm feeling that a river rock fireplace at the beach brings, especially when it's stormy.

In May of 2017 we did some major remodeling to the outside of the house applying a German smear to the brick as well as many other upgrades we felt would make your stay nicer.

In May of 2016 we remodeled the top floor of the house to accommodate a more open concept and make it a kid friendly environment. With bean bag chairs for watching movies and a 50" HDTV with a dvd player, the kids will have a ball. We also made some major modifications to the "Man Cave" and the utility room. In the "Cave" there is a 50" HDTV with cable and a nice warm gas fireplace so the sports enthusiasts can enjoy their games in a retro-bar and then take a nap. There is also a foosball table. And there are dvd players on every floor so you can watch movies, as well as a couple of vhs players for old movies you might bring. The house is also wired, throughout the inside and also the deck, so you can enjoy your recorded music on the top floor, the main floor and outside on the deck.

The kitchen, which was recently remodeled, has seating at the table for at least 10-12 for those family reunions or larger groups. We also provide a high chair for the little ones. I know we've built some wonderful memories while sitting and eating.

All the TV's throughout the house are set-up for watching movies. In addition we had the driveway and parking area resurfaced this fall so there is very little left we could improve.

In closing we want to point out that from June 15th until September 15th, we only rent by the week from Saturday to Saturday. The rest of the year we have a two night minimum, except three day weekends where the minimum is three nights.

Keywords: House; oceanfront; unobstructed views; very comfortable; music capabilities throughout the house and outside on the deck. Complete remodel finished in 2017.

About Jerry

My wife Marcie and I have two children. Our daughter, Ashton is 14 and her brother Conner is 16. We live in Portland where we are now retired. We enjoy dancing, movies, the outdoors, our church and our families. We have three cats, Larry, Jacques and Prince, as well as a sweet dog named Rudy. We bring them with us when we come to Seaside. We wish we had more time to enjoy our home, but are busy, so we thought we would open it up to other families so they can build memories like we have. Please write a review after your stay so others can enjoy your thoughts.

Jerry purchased this house in 2003

Why Jerry chose Seaside

Unlike many coastal towns that are limited in things to do, Seaside has many shops, restaurants, theater, aquatic center, bike rentals, etc. They also offer many attractions for families like the bumper cars, arcade, and numerous events like the car shows, basketball tournaments and many, many more things to do and see.

What makes this house unique

The beautiful ocean views are breath taking. The quiet, warm feeling of the house makes you feel right at home the minute you walk in. We have one Canadian family that comes back every year for ten days in late September 'To see what you've done to our summer home!' This will be there 13th year. Build your family memories at The Prom House.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We provide a quest book at the house that has many wonderful stories of peoples visits. Since we have numerous repeat summer renters, I think it must be well worth the cost. We hope your family builds great memories here too.

Splendid Vacation Spot in Seaside

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to stay at A Prom House in Seaside, a home for our far-flung family to gather and share Christmastide. Check in was easy and efficient, check-out likewise. There was a cheery Christmas tree in the living room, bright garland lights on the fireplace mantel and festive touches throughout. The house is well-situated on the south end of Seaside's Promenade, close enough for a walk to town to tour the galleries and shops but removed from the bustle and noise and small cafes and a Mom-and-Pop market are a short walk away. The ocean view from the dining room/kitchen in particular held us fascinated, we enjoyed morning coffee, afternoon tea and happy family meals with a superlative Pacific Ocean view. The living room's beautiful river rock gas fireplace kept us snug as we visited and the downstairs "Man Cave" kept the guys happy as they viewed the Bowl games - a perfect set-up. This vintage home is well-maintained and lovingly upgraded, we especially enjoyed the sound system! The kitchen is well-stocked and the whole house was spotless and comfortable. Be aware that there are narrow stairs to upstairs and downstairs areas (safe handrails all around), and the Kids Room is a large open area at the top of the upstairs (a kiddie-gate was available, as needed.) We would recommend this wonderful place and hope to return again. Thanks to our kind hosts for sharing this memorable home on the Prom!

Owner's Response: Wow. Thank you for the wonderful review. I don’t think in my 15 years of renting this home we have ever had a review as in depth and moving as yours. Reviews like yours is why we share our home. We love everything about the home too. Thanks again. Jerry

Loved this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been meeting up with family (which has now grown to 12) every other Thanksgiving for over 10 years. This house was, by far, the best! Clean, comfortable, well stocked large kitchen. The owner was wonderful - responded to all my inquiries rapidly AND, once he sent me the Check-in instructions, actually followed it up with a personal phone call. We will definitely be back!!!

Owner's Response: Lisa and Family, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We try very hard to make every guest experience memorable. It sounds like we did fairly well for you and your family. We look forward to hearing from you soon to book your next Thanksgiving. Return guests are already booking for next year. Happy Holidays. Jerry

a wonderful place for a family celebration

  • 5 of 5

The house had a beautiful view out onto the ocean waves. Just a short walk on a path and we were on the beach. The gas fireplace in the living room was so cozy on a stormy day and perfect for just sitting and looking out the window. The house comfortably fit our large family and there were plenty of seating options for everyone. We also liked the large outdoor benches on the front of the house. The kitchen was fairly well equipped for our cooking needs. The bathrooms were nicely decorated and we especially appreciated the heated floor in the downstairs bathroom.

Owner's Response: Paul, Thank you for your wonderful review. It’s especially meaningful since you came from such a distant location to come here and you took the time to give us a great review knowing you probably would never be returning. I hope the inquiring future guests appreciate your review as much as I do. Have a great day. Jerry

Very clean and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent communication from owner prior to arrival and during our stay. Location can't be beat walking to town on the Prom or straight out the front door to the beach. 2 block walk to a very good cafe for breakfast and restaurant. House was clean with plenty of parking and all amenities needed. We will return again!

Very large, close to the beach, very clean, great views

  • 4 of 5

The home is very large with ample amounts of entertainment. The views of the ocean are great. Just a short walk to the beach and to town. The kitchen is stocked with just about everything you could want. And very well organized!! The home was very clean. Ideal for a large group of people or two families.

The home owner was quick to respond to all questions and inquiries and provided detailed information on the house and other helpful information on the area. Highly recommended!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive review. I'm somewhat surprised by the positive review but then giving us only four stars as you are the only guest in 13 years that hasn't given us five stars. What could we do to turn it into five stars for your next stay? Jerry

Perfect location, clean, fun updates, and plenty of room for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time at the Prom House! Jerry was so obliging and easy to work with. The house was well stocked with everything we could possibly need. We were all comfortable, warm, and quite relaxed. The teenagers had their space in the "man cave" and the adults were well settled in the comfortable living room. The sofa in the living room is the perfect napping couch! We will definitely book this house again!

Car: necessary

Arcade, bumper cars, bicycle rentals, paddle boats are only a few of the things to do in Seaside. Some people go crabbing and clam digging. One thing we love to do, especially when it's stormy, is go to the jetty in Warrenton, go up on the observation tower and watch how powerful the ocean is. For a fun outing go to Fort Stevens State Park and Coffinberry Lake. It's a great family place to go swimming and the it's fresh water.
