About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The Highlands is a private community of 73 houses, none having a value of less than at $1MM. This is my special beach house, and I rent it only when I am not using.

The homeowners association owns a public, 9 hole golf course and tennis court within the development. My house is one of 6-7 that is not on a fairway (advantage). The walk to the common boardwalk over the dunes to the beach is 2 blocks.

See the elk walking in the next yard in picture #14. Deer also visit often.

Why The Owner chose Northern Coast

We absolutely love the beach, and the views are critical. We belong to Astoria Golf and Country Club 4 miles to the North.

What makes this house unique

Very quiet, great access to everything you find at communities like Gearhart and Seaside, close to golf

Great Location in a very nice neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed 3 perfect days in this home. The location is ideal for walking. The development is very quiet, very little traffic, easy walk to the beach. The home is nice, clean, and very well appointed. The owners are a pleasure to do business with. Highly recommended.

Great location, very friendly and homey

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house. My wife and kids (7 of us) enjoyed this tremendously, were sorry we had to leave. My sons and I played golf at the executive course surrounding this gated community, it was very reasonable in price, even used their rental clubs (which were acceptable). There was easy access to the beach and the neighborhood was gorgeous, safe and great for walks. The property has close access to Seaside (south) and Astoria (north), both of which we frequented. Grad a donut at Dundee's on Broadway (Seaside) and a coffee/latte at The Human Bean drivethrough - awesome. The house was clean, well maintained and everything was as advertised. The view was better than expected. The owner was very good to work with and was concerned with our stay, very attentive to our questions. I would highly recommend this property.

Very lovely home with beautiful views of and access to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We took an extended family group of 6 and stayed at this property at Highlands at Gearhart. The owner was great to work with, and the house is very lovely. Everything was as described and was clean and very comfortable. The views of the sea are so lovely and very soothing. I would recommend this home to anyone looking to stay at Gearhart - it definitely is a big cut above nearby condos just down the beach (where we had stayed before) - larger and much quieter.

Highly recommended for anyone wanting to go to Gearhart!
