About Jay Senior

I bought Kite Beach Lookout in the spring of 2008, after spending the previous few years kiting in the Gorge. I now spend several weeks there every summer kiting with my wife. Together, we spend most of the winters snowboarding at Mount Baker, with some tropical kiting vacations thrown in to keep us sane. :)

We hope that you enjoy your holiday at Kite Beach Lookout!

Why Jay Senior chose Hood River

Hood River is very close to Seattle (where I live) and has some of the best wind in the world for kiting. The mountain biking trails are also world class. A summer place with my two favorite sports rolled into one is hard to beat!

What makes this house unique

I can't imagine a better place to stay in the Gorge. We love having breakfast at the dining room table, while watching the wind build on the water. When we're ready, it's a quick drive down to the Event site to rig and launch our kites. At the end of a glorious day on the water, there's nothing better than relaxing on the deck overlooking the Columbia, or soaking in the hot tub on the back deck.

Nice property with fantastic view!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed Christmas in this property and had a great time. The steep driveway is a bit challenging in the winter so would probably rate this at 5 stars in the summer.

Kite Beach Lookout home

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several properties in the past two years. This house was among the best we have stayed at. Everything was very clean and the house was well-equipped. The beds were very comfortable and the bedrooms were of a good size. The view was wonderful. I would highly recommend this home for a Hood River stay.

We had a fine stay at the Kite Beach Lookout

  • 5 of 5

The Kite Beach Lookout was a very comfortable place to stay. The view of the Columbia River was spectacular. It is located near downtown so that we could walk there. It was very clean and well stocked. The house was quiet and open so we could all relax. The bedrooms were good sized. We found the kitchen well equipped for cooking. We enjoyed the hot tub. We spent 4 very fun days there.

Wedding Week in Hood River.

  • 5 of 5

Our week long stay at Kite Beach Lookout was everything we hoped for and more. This house is a vacation paradise with all the amenities. All you need is food. The kitchen was fully stocked, the house was very clean, and the beds were very comfortable. I would highly recommend Kite Beach Lookout as a great place to stay in Hood River. The view from the deck is exceptional and the location is perfect. Close enough to take the stairs to downtown, plus you get a workout coming back up. Also included in the house was lots of info on things to do in the gorge, maps, and local magazines to help you enjoy Hood River.

Incredible food at a reasonable price.

Hood River is a laid back adventure town. You can go hard during the day, and chill out in the evenings.
