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 Gearhart

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.

The owner, Mo, was always available for questions both day and night. Great spot for family party.

We had 4 generations here for my 60th birthday. Everyone was well entertained. The property is complete and well stocked. My only complaint would be a lack of sharp knives.

We absolutely love this house. We've stayed here many times now. Our only regret is that we are too busy in the area and can't stay at the property as much as we'd like. Thanks Mo!

PERFECT Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The house is set up very well for an active family. We really enjoyed the pool table, ping pong and boats to use! We loved the beach area that is walking distance from the house! (we had trouble finding it: go to the end of the road @ stop sign turn right, then take the 1st left. go past the park, the road turns to the right or left go left, on the right side of the road between two houses is a light green sign and a small sign on a wood post that says beach access. the path goes along the cedar split log fence. It's not a difficult walk but there is a few hills that make it harder for the older folks.) We loved all staying in the place being able to cook and eat together. Loved it! Would recommend and probably will return again.

Owner's Response: Dear Karla, Thank you so much for sharing your family experience. We always look forward reading the reviews from our guests and try to improve the comfort for them. I will update the directions to the beach access and make it more visible. There is a guest binder in the kitchen but it may have been putaway in the cabinets. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We love to see your family back for another reunion.
