About Property Manager
I graduated from Gonzaga University with a business degree. Go ZAGS!! My wife and I love to experience different foods and cultures by traveling domestically & internationally. My wife and I got married in 1993 and we decided to buy our dream home somewhere on the Oregon Coast. We traveled from north to south, Astoria to Brookings, exploring the Oregon Coast. So, we bought ourselves an acre lot on Sunset Lake where we dreamed someday we would retire and go fishing on our own private lake. Next, we built the house in 2003 and kept visiting periodically until our kids got older and our lives got busier. Therefore, we decided in 2010 to open our house to other families and let them get the full experience of the gorgeous Oregon Coast. Lastly, we hope you will enjoy our vacation home and come back to visit often and tell your friends and family.
Property Manager purchased this House in 2003
Why Property Manager chose Warrenton
My wife and I visited the Oregon Coast, from Newport to Astoria, and fell in love with Gearhart and the Surf Pines gated community. We receive a lot of inquiries regarding guests having allergies as they can not stay at a pet friendly home. So, if you have pets and want to bring them with you, or have friends that have pets and want to visit you, this is not the right home and we apologize in advance. If your family enjoys deep sea fishing the City of Warrenton has charter fishing boats depending on the season and can take your party out fishing. My son and I went for Sturgeon fishing and each of us got a Sturgeon about 5 feet long. There are two golf courses within a mile from the house. There is a 18 hole Golf Course at Gearhart Golf Course and 9 hole Golf at The Highlands Golf Course. We are only 4 miles away from Seaside where you can spend your time playing miniature golf, bumper cars, tilt-a-whirl, and lets not forget the outlet malls. Also, the city of Astoria is only 5 miles north of us and you must see the famous Astoria Column. You can also visit where the famous movies Kindergarten Cop and The Goonies were filmed.
What makes this House unique
We call it, "The Ultimate Lakefront Family Reunion" and there is a reason for that! A private gated community with a one acre parcel that is right on Sunset lake. We have a floating dock plus two 17 foot canoes, a 5 passenger paddle boat, two paddleboards, and three kayaks, and a 12 feet aluminum fishing boat with a trolling motor. A vacation can’t get any better than this and did I mention for those who want to stay at the house, there is a Swedish Sauna, a professional pool table, PlayStation III (with games), Wii console (with games), Xbox 360(with games)Volleyball court, Foosball table, ping pong and the amenities go on and on…… There is Costco, Walmart, Starbucks, FredMeyer, Subway, and Taco Bell about a mile away, or if you're a fisherman you can catch your dinner right off the lake.

Great house on the coast!
This is one of the best Oregon coast rentals we have ever experienced! The house is great, Mo is an excellent host. The house and yard have tons of activities - boats, bikes, table tennis, pool table, etc. Lake front with water access and a short walk to the beach. Will definitely stay here again
I am glad you all enjoyed the house Greg. I look forward hosting you and your friends again.
Wonderful Location and lots to do!
This is a wonderful place to stay! The location was ideal on the lake and a short hike to the beach. Many activities to entertain people of all ages. The house is very adequate for large numbers of people, nice kitchen and dining area! We loved out stay!
Thank you for the nice review! I’m glad you had a wonderful stay at our home and we look forward to your next visit.
Great group vacation house & location
There are already so many good reviews, but adding to the glowing reports here. One of the best maintained and stocked rental properties we have visited and the owner was super at getting back to us for questions. Easy walk to beach, the house sits on a tidal lake so the views are spectacular, especially in the morning. We visited late September so didn't take advantage of the water toys but did enjoy sitting on the deck, watching the waterfowl. Great memories and a keeper property for future visits. Be advised, like all vrbo properties, there are additional fees but the refund on our damage deposit portion was very prompt. Thanks Mo!
Thank you it is my pleasure, I am always here for my guests needs and concerns. I appreciate the generous review Susan and hope to host you and your family friends again.
Family reunion. Grandma ,kids and grandkids
What an absolute wonderful time! Searched for a place I could gather my children and grandchildren for a relaxing fun time together. The house was fabulous and lots to experience. The entire family had a fantastic time and we left all in agreement we needed to do it again only next time a week instead of a weekend!
I found the property manager extremely helpful and answered any and all of my questions and needs in a very timely manner. I truly appreciated his patience and help when I struggled with my computer knowledge and hearing issues. He was so understanding and kind.
Highly recommend any and all to enjoy this amazing home and all the extras it offers!!
Fabulous time was had by all
Thank you Donna for leaving such a kind review! It was my pleasure to make sure everything was perfect for you and your family to have a fun time. I truly look forward to talking to you when it’s time for your next stay in my vacation home.
Labor Day weekend family trip
Beautiful house and location was great! Very peaceful and safe for kids to run around. We were expecting a bigger lake so the initial impression was “oh! this is it?” However, the kids still had fun fishing in the backyard. There were issues such as sliding door does not lock and no hot water in the main bathroom shower. The owner was very responsive to our concerns. It would be nice to have toilet plunger in every bathroom since the toilet tends to clog/back up easily.
Overall, we really enjoy our time at this property. There were many games and activities to keep young kids, teenagers, and the adults entertained. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to any family
Thank you for writing us a review Kay and I am happy to know your family had a great time. We put so much time, energy and planning year around to make sure everyone that stays at our beach home drives away happy and to make lifetime memories with loved ones. My own family and friends stayed at our beach home right after your family checked out. We do this every year to inspect the property and create a to do list. Since it was Labor Day weekend, all the plumbers and contractors were not available and I am sorry you had to experience that. The hot water and sliding door lock has now been fixed. About our Sunset lake, it is about 100 acres long and to be honest I too haven’t paddled 300 feet past our home. We look forward hosting your family again next year. Best wishes, Mo
A Perfect Place to Getaway from it All!!
This home is truly a hidden gem in Warrenton! We chose to book this house after reading all the review from former guests. Let me tell you, they were right about this place!! It’s spacious, bright, clean and well appointed. We stayed here with our women’s masters walking team for the weekend following our annual walking event. The owner was quick to respond and checked in on us during our stay to make sure all was well. We had everything we needed. Plenty of dishes, housewares, stocked linens and towels. I “highly” recommend this property. The only reason I did not give a 5 star for cleanliness was due to some exterior buggy/cobwebs on the deck area and a few inside in the skylights. I’m sure the coastal bugs set up camp fairly quickly so I’m not sure they can be knocked down regularly - and I really don’t blame them for wanting to set up camp at Mo’s spectacular place :-)! You will love it. We will be back next year. Thanks Mo!!
I hear what you’re saying about the cobwebs and bugs and we will pay extra attention for our future guests. Thank you for your honesty and staying at my vacation home! I’m glad everything else was up to your standards and exceeded expectations. I look forward to hosting you again!
