We love the house, the town, the beach and how close we are to all, but still on a quiet street. We put alot of TLC into making it a special place for ourselves and our family , friends and guests.

Donna Carlson purchased this house in 2011

I grew up on 12th st in HB and graduated HB High in 1971. Have a large family still here and look forward to sharing our beautiful new home with them for many years to come. Have a memorial bench on beach walk way at Goldenwest for parents.We love being so close to everything - !!! The new Pacific City development is also just a short walk away. - no hassle with parking at the beach, Pier, Main Street or Pacific City.

What makes this house unique

Best value home for the LOCATION, QUALITY ,SIZE and PARKING.. A two minute walk to beach(signal bathroom,crosswalk), main street, the pier. Has an urban feel when sitting out on the front patio catching late afternoon sun , reading a book, having a glass of wine. . Walk everywhere.!!!

Amazing property with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved Donna’s home. We walked every where and rarely used the car. On a slightly colder week, we specially enjoyed sitting at the front patio by the fire pit. We hope to be back again to all what HB and this property have to offer.

Beautiful house with many amenities near the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our group thoroughly enjoyed our time at this house. The house is very nice and has many amenities, of which we were particularly happy with the multiple areas to congregate including two dining areas with large tables, an outside patio a two living rooms with comfy couches. We also enjoyed having all the bikes available to us which made for a nice ride to the nearby downtown area.

The homes owners, Donna and Steve are also wonderful in regards to ensuring everything leading up to and during your trip goes as smoothly as possible. We would definitely love to return to this house in the future. thank you again for allowing us to stay in your home.

Beautiful home! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This home managed to sleep 10 of us in my family comfortably. We had everything we needed to cook and hang out at home but close enough to walk to any restaurant. Can’t wait to go back it was hard to leave!

Owner's Response: Jessica you are certainly welcome back! Knowing your daughter is close may help! We’re still trying to find a couple strong backs to move extra firepit to deck! Thanks for your help! Happy holidays ! Donna

Family Vacation/Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We took a family vacation and stayed at this beautiful home! Donna was very responsive and helpful through the whole process. The house had everything we needed, beach towels, bikes, beach cart, boogie boards, and folding chairs. The whole family fell in love with this home and HB and didn't want to leave. The house is only a few blocks from the pier and main street. Restaurants and shopping were only a short walk away. We rented two cars which we parked at the house. Didn't really need them since everything was in walking distance.

Will definitely be back.

All your questions answered here.....

  • 5 of 5

Yes, this house is as beautiful as the photos! Our extended family visited for my son's wedding and we were all thrilled we selected this house as our home base.

I've rented many large homes for our extended family and this is the first with an open floor plan enabling the whole family to enjoy each other as well as enough room for each bedroom/bath to have lots of privacy. Excellent floor plan for multiple families or large groups. The sunset from the front patio or rooftop deck was gorgeous.

The location is extraordinary! Every possible store/restaurant/entertainment option nearby.

So much to do, we wish we could have stayed longer and can't wait to go back.

Beautifully, elegantly decorated was not so fussy we were worried about our two toddlers enjoying themselves - this house is very family friendly.

This was by far the best stocked house we've ever rented. The owner is extremely organized and very responsive, making our trip so easy.

If you are travelling with a group or extended family, this is the house that offers the most space, fun, entertainment and ease of renting.

I highly recommend this house!!

Great Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and great location to beach and Main Street! Had the opportunity to meet the owners who gave us a tour of the house before they left. Donna was just a phone call or text away for any questions we had. Home has pretty much everything you would need for a beach vacation! I took a poll before we left, we would definitely choose this home again! 😊�
