About The Owner

I graduated from Gonzaga University with a business major and a minor in accounting. Go ZAGS!!

My wife and I love to experience different foods and cultures by traveling domestically & internationally.

First, 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.

Secondly, we built the house in 2003 and kept visiting periodically until our kids got older and our lives got busy. 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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Northern Coast

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 bookings since many of our guests have allergies and they can not stay at pet friendly homes. So, if you have pets and want to bring them with you, or friends that are 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 shopping, 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 Beach Vacation Home" and there is a reason for that!

A private gated community with one acre parcel and it’s right on the lake. We have a 5 passenger paddle boat, 17 foot aluminum canoe, and a 12 foot fishing boat. A vacation can’t get any better that that and did I mention for those who want to stay at the house, there is a Swedish Sauna, a professional pool table, PlayStation ll (with games), Wii console (with games), Volleyball & Bocce ball court, Foosball table, ping pong and the amenities go on and on……

There is a Costco, Starbucks, Local Restuarants, Fred Myer, Subway, and Taco Bell about a mile away, or if you're a fisherman you can catch your dinner right off the lake.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wow we saw so many deer and elk. The lake was lots of fun and I love the ocean, this place is nothing like Peugent Sound. Love, Jack from Seattle.

Had a lot of fun on the lake using the canoe and the dock. Ben

You have a beautiful place here, the best of 2 worlds, we paddleed the canoe all of the way to the bridge and back. Wish we had had a little more sunshine! Thank you, Deanne

Had fun playing on the dock and riding down the beach. This is perfect playing house. Thanks for letting us stay. Alex B.

I like the pool and ping pong. Everything about the lake & I like my bed.

P.S. me and my aunt went canoeing to the bridge. Annie B.

Thank you so much for allowing us to rent this house. I loved the location on the lake and how it was a bike ride away from the beach. i loved the floating dock! It was so much fun to jump off of. i loved being able to take the canoe out and tour the lake. The house was well equiped with everything to make this vacation great. The pool table was great for small games. The ping pong table was perfect for a family ping pong tournament!(which I won). Again thank you so much for allowing us to rent this house. Danielle B.

Fantastic time at this lakefront property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the lake house with our four kids and my parents. The one level house was perfect for my dad who uses a walker and didn't have to navigate stairs too much, and could sit on the back deck and watch the kids fish and paddle around the lake. The kids spent most there time out on the lake even though there were games, pool, ping pong and other fun things to do at the house.

The only thing that was a bit of bummer was that we couldn't seem to figure out the dvd system, but there was a great selection of movies to watch.

Fantastic vacation home with plenty amenities and hosted by a customer-centric owner!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a super pleasant time at this vacation home! It's not just a place to stay overnight. It's a home away from home. It's full of amenities, with boating, fishing, sauna and pool being our favorites. Sitting around the firepit and burning some firewood after dinner added lots of fun to my whole family! Super responsive and helpful host made us feel home quickly. Highly recommended vacation home to stay for great and long-lasting memories!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We brought our grandson here for his 13th birthday with two of his friends. We all had a really wonderful time. There's so many amenities for the kids, they were never bored. Didn't catch enough fish, but they had so much fun in the boats that it didn't seem to matter too much. House is very clean and well organized. Owner very accommodating and easy to deal with. Can't say enough good things about this place!

I really like this place. Our second time there.

  • 5 of 5

This house is great! It's so nice to return to after exploring the area and fishing. All furnishings and amenities are in good shape. Really need the extra freezer in the garage for our Salmon, although we didn't catch too many this year. Love all the extras: pool table, table tennis, boats, outside deck and firepit. The house was clean on arrival; no complaints. The landlord/agent is very responsive to questions leading up to the rental time. Now that I remembered my VRBO password, the process is very efficient.

Bottom line: we'll be back. This has to be one of the best Northern Oregon rentals not directly on the beach.
