About Debi

Rob & Deb married as high school sweethearts, 3 kids and 38 years later are enjoying retirement and the new addition to their family - Shearwater house. Rob's engineering and handyman skills are put into play with the remodeling and maintenance, Deb's travel-agent experience and uber-boss-of-the-family directs the marketing, scheduling and bookkeeping. We love our new vacation home and love sharing it with our guests. When we first bought the Gullhouse 10 years ago (our other vacation rental), we never would have imagined ourselves living this kind of life. We love it. In addition, Rob bicycles, kayaks, climbs, and gives his 6 siblings and our children a hard time. Deb gardens, reads, studies metaphysics and walks. Maybe it's time to start dancing again...

Debi purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Debi chose Central Coast

We bought the Gullhouse in Seal Rock 10 years ago. Two years ago we started renting it as a vacation rental and discovered that not only are we good at it, but we truly love sharing this little beauty. (See listing 214861 and guest comments.) If we can do it once, can we do it again? The Shearwaterhouse came to us in answer to a desire to house our own growing family celebrations, while still honoring ourselves as a couple. The Guest House...The Romance of the Sea... is a celebration of love. We may be old, but we know that love knows no age and we want to share it with lovers of all ages, creeds, races and sexes.

What makes this cottage unique

The Romance of the Sea appeals to the soul of romance. Discarding daily hassles and pressures, allowing personal space and intimacy to prevail it is possible here to indulge in our human experience. We have a lovely view from here, just a block from beach access. All the sounds from the ocean waft up the hill and surround us. BBQing or hot tub on the private deck, watching the shifting and changing ocean, appreciating the majesty of life envelopes and enhances appreciation of the experience. This is a very special place for the lover in all of us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came here for my birthday and had a lovely weekend of kayaking, hiking, and exploring. It was my first time to the Oregon Coast and this was the perfect way to do it! We followed your suggestion and went to Blackfish for dinner and were spoiled rotten - the dessert! oh my god!

Cozy Bungalow

  • 4 of 5

Cozy little condo, perfect for a couple. The hot tub is a nice treat after a long day of site seeing. The restaurant recommendations were greatly appreciated. The kitchen has just about everything one would need. This condo was easy to find & a great location since it is fairly close to 101.

A very sweet getaway

  • 5 of 5

Mu husband and I stayed here and were quite comfortable.


Super soft bed & pillows (Loved it)

View of the ocean from bed

Jacuzzi hot tub was HOT and relaxing, plenty of room for two

generous amount of supplies left for guest

super soft oversized robes & hot tub towels

spacious mostly private deck with great view and eating area

Affordable (major pro)


The maintenance noise from the main house took away from the quiet atmosphere

Driveway is steep! But this is how you get the view

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed the Romance of the Sea and what we provide in it. Thank you also for your patience while we finished up a major project in the larger house. With our great sunshine and dry weather, it was essential to get the siding completed before the predicted rain. The project is now complete, we passed inspection and are good to go! Next time you come, all you will hear is the roar of the crashing surf and the shrill cry of the gulls!

Perfect Anniversary Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Romance of the Sea I. August for our second anniversary. We could not have picked a more perfect place! The owners, Debi and Rob, were wonderful to work with and their cottage was well stocked with nice personal touches throughout. The kitchen had everything necessary to make food at the cottage which was great. We also loved that it was a close walk to the beach and we could come back and warm up in the great hot tub! We definitely hope to go back soon! I would highly recommend the cottage to anyone looking for a serene, enchanting getaway.
