About the Property
The Gullhouse- isolated & private with ocean view shared only with the birds
The Gullhouse nestles in a secluded, intimate spot, rare on the popular Oregon Coast. The road ends in our driveway. Our guests love sitting in the hot tub (no neighbors other than the seals:) and watching the gulls, pelicans, bald eagles and magnificent gray whales, migrating 12,000 miles from Alaska to Baja and back. Many engagement, honeymoon and anniversary celebrations take place at the Gullhouse. (LGBTQ Friendly)
You will marvel at this astounding ocean view from the living room sofa, the ocean bedroom and even the kitchen. At low tide you can see with your naked eye, orange and purple sea stars clinging to the exposed rocks, and a dozen seals resting on these rocks. You don't have to leave the Gullhouse to experience the beauty of the Oregon Coast and many of our guests don't!

*full bathrooms (2)
*flat screen TVs

The Gullhouse is not oceanfront, but is located across the street from the beach. It might be closer than many oceanfront properties, but there is a busy road to cross. Our teenagers had no problem with it, but for young children, there are 4 State Parks with easy beach access and parking for your vehicle within a 2 mile radius.
The Gullhouse is not baby-proofed, but we do have available a pack n'play, high chair, booster seat and room monitor.
A Note About Motorcycles:
The road ends in our driveway and offers spectacular privacy, but about 3 blocks away, the road becomes gravel. There is a significant hill into our block. In addition, we do not have either a carport or a garage where your vehicle can be parked.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Seal Rock is an unincorporated coastal community in Lincoln County, Oregon, United States, between Newport and Waldport on U.S. Route 101.
Seal Rock State Wayside (across the street) has large off-shore rock formations which are the habitat of seals, sea lions, sea birds and other marine life. The wayside includes interesting tide pools as well as excellent ocean views and a sandy beach. Developed for day-use, the picnic area is in a pleasant stand of shore pine, spruce and salal. Or you can picnic on the deck at the Gullhouse, and enjoy the splendid view from the privacy of your own deck.
The outstanding Newport Aquarium and Hatfield Marine Science Center area within a 15 minute drive.
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: Rob and Debi Hertert originally bought the Gullhouse for family vacations. We started renting it to co-workers at the VA Hospital; friends and family. The response was overwhelming, and we found that we really enjoyed sharing this incredible place. When Rob retired, we decided to rent it professionally, and he got his 'committee' together to help. We built the patio, installed the hot tub, replaced and cut in new windows. The deck was torn down and rebuilt, the foundation and underpinnings supported, even the plumbing was replaced! We all worked hard, and we love our special place. We have had many Fathers Day Crab Feeds with our kids after a day out on Uncle Doug's boat in the Bay. Our middle son proposed to his wife on the beach in front of our house. Our oldest son and his wife honeymooned at the Gullhouse. Our daughter chooses to bring her husband here every chance she gets. Rob and I have had many lovely times for our own special Valentine's Days and anniversaries. The Gullhouse is well-loved by our entire family and friends. Our friendships grow every day, with every booking; our guests are always the kind of people that we enjoy and appreciate, even though we may only meet on-line!
Why the Owner Chose Seal Rock, OR, USA:
The view is simply, completely and utterly outstanding.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Gullhouse has a better view and is closer to the ocean than many oceanfront properties. When my mom (Debi, here) was ill and she couldn't go onto the beach, she could still see us from the living room couch, and without using the binoculars, even examine the starfish on the rocks. There is one particular flat rock that the seals will climb onto at the change of tide. Even though Mom has been gone over 10 years, we still lovingly call that rock 'Grandmom's Rock'. Another attribute not to be taken for granted is the feeling of sitting in the hot tub, sparkling stars overhead, a magnificent sunset on the horizon and the sights and sounds of the ever-changing, crashing surf. My personal choice of a meditation spot in the morning and for quiet conversation and a cocktail in the evening sunset.
