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.

Wonderful beach getaway house

  • 5 of 5

This was a family/girls weekend - moms & grandmas only:) The house is great...very spacious and nicely decorated. The house is fully stocked in everything you'll need to stay there - the one thing we did notice is that the house has a DVD player but not a lot of movies to watch. So, if you're movie watchers, make sure to bring your own:) We actually ended up not having time to watch any movies, but that's why we're going to stay an extra night the next trip down! And it has a great location....there is a room upstairs that you're able to see the sunset if you don't get down to the beach...but, the beach is only a 5 minute walk and the walk can be down a sandy driveway or on a trail thru the beach grasses. Can't wait to stay at this house again - definitely saving our pennies for our next trip to the beach so we can stay here again! :)

Will Stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. It is a perfect location if you want to walk or drive to the beach. The house has a nice layout and has room to move around in. It is VERY well appointed and stocked, we loved all the toys and games to take to the beach. It is very clean and well kept. We will be staying here the next time we are in Gearhart.

Would highly recommend this home. It was very comfortable. It had everything we needed to have a great time. The kids loved it and they had fun . Amazing location. Steps from the beach. Would rent it again.

Wonderful home, beach and town

  • 5 of 5

My family, including kids ages 3 and 5, had the perfect summer vacation at this beach house. The back yard was great and allowed the kids to run around and play and the house was very clean. As noted in house description, the beach is a short walk away through the grasses. The plus is you are on the side of the beach that does not allow cars, so less crowed (not that the beaches are all that crowed to begin with). The town of Gearhart is charming with some great places for food and coffee. Lastly, the owner is very responsive and a pleasure to work with. We will be back!
