Just like home

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home. The location, the landscaping, the comfort and the overall condition of the home is just great. You have to see it to believe what the owner have done to make your vacation as easy and comfortable as possible. They have put together a great guide called "honey where is the" that will tell you where everything in the home is located. All appliances are good quality and well maintained. You will truly enjoy this home!

Wonderful, well stocked, comfortable home that was walking distance to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with this beach rental. The kitchen had everything we needed for our family. The grand kids came for a visit and enjoyed the play house and back yard sand box. We rented this clean, well cared for house because it was walking distance to the 10th street beach entrance where our son's wedding was. We were also walking distance to the Gearhart McMineman's for the Reception. We were able to ride bikes around town and enjoy the sleepy atmosphere of Gearhart, and play golf. A great vacation destination.

Wonderful beach house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of seven retirees from Washington state thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rickles' Gearhart Beach House. The house is very well designed, furnished and equipped, and so well maintained it was almost like new. The deck and back yard full of flowers, shrubs and trees is sunny in the morning and shady in the afternoon--our favorite place for morning coffee and late afternoon drinks. We did not have children with us, but were charmed by the playhouse in the back yard. There is also a very clean sandbox. It would be a great location for a multigenerational getaway. It was fairly hot two of the days we were there, but even so we did not need to turn on the air conditioning because the house and the back yard stayed cool.

There is plenty of comfortable seating in the living room and a large dining table to accommodate a group. The kitchen has everything you can possibly need, high quality pots and pans, many condiments, oil and vinegar, other basic ingredients. We especially enjoyed the interesting artwork, décor, and historic photos. Clearly a home loved by its owners--we are happy that they decided to share it.

The location is excellent, one house away from the dune grass and beach, less than a block south of the main Gearhart beach access. Cars can drive on the beach north of the access, but not to the south, where this house is located. It's also a couple blocks from the golf course and McMenamins Sand Trap Pub.

Steve was very easy to work with. We were all very pleased with this rental and would highly recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Pat: Thanks so much for your review. No one has taken the time before to post such a detailed review, and we appreciate it. Glad that it met all of your needs. I am glad that you didn't get too hot, because the house does not have air conditioning! By the way, there were a few minor items found by the cleaning crew, just a pair of socks, a pair of black slip-ons, and a black case to something on the upstairs bedroom table. If you want them, just let me know and we'll figure out how to ship them to you.

Great place, very accurate listing

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental! Clean, spacious, very well-equipped, and the backyard is fantastic. The owners are very attentive and clearly take a lot of pride in their family beach house. We really appreciated the detailed house guide as well as the range of things that are generously made available to renters (beach toys, chairs, the great little playhouse in the backyard, etc.). The photos in the listing are accurate and give a great sense of the place, and the walk to the beach is short and very pleasant. We'll definitely be back.
