About Tara

We have enjoyed our Gearhart house since 2004. We did extensive updating throughout the house from the get go. With three young children, we aren't able to get over to the coast as much as we would like to. So, here we are, sharing our house with other guests.

Tara purchased this house in 2004

Why Tara chose Gearhart

We love the charm of Gearhart. It's an easy drive from Portland and is conveniently located to all the beautiful north coast towns of Seaside, Astoria, Cannon Beach, Manzanita, and more. Gearhart itself is quiet and family friendly. The beach is serene and peaceful. The community is friendly and warm. Great memories are made here.

What makes this house unique

The house is centrally located to town. We love walking for coffee, ice cream, groceries, and fine dining. There are even wildlife around the area. The peaceful beach is a short couple blocks away.

Large, beautiful home, in a lovely charming town!

  • 5 of 5

First, I must say the owners were wonderful to work with, from my first question even before I had decided to book! Thank you!

We arrived at the house and were surprised at how large and lovely it is! 4 adults in our group and plenty of room to stretch out, including two living rooms both with couches and tv's. 2 full bathrooms!

It was incredibly clean! I don't even remember any dust! Plenty of linens, dishes, and cookware. Some condiments and spices as well, but I had brought my own.

The house was easy to find, a short walk to both the beach and the little town with its few cafes and shops to browse. The townspeople were kind and welcoming. "By the Way" was my favorite local coffee stop, the warm presence, friendly service, and kind chatty locals will make you want to stay longer :)

Great property for kids

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property for 2 adults and 3 children. The two living spaces were nice to have. My 6 year-old loved the toys and playhouse, which was a real surprise. The grill was in very good condition and the house was very clean upon arrival. I appreciated the extra blankets, as nights on the coast are generally cold. We really enjoyed the outdoor space, too. It's an easy walk to town and a longer walk to the beach. In the future, it would be great to provide a box or two of tissues for guests and more than 1 roll of paper towels, which are really tiny requests. Overall, I recommend this property and would definitely stay here again. Thanks!

Cozy, cute beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here! The home and yard are lovely and set up for relaxing and entertainment. Had our family reunion in Gearhart and several other family members joined us at night around the fire pit. Tara was excellent to work w/ and very prompt w/ answers to any questions. Want to go back again soon!!! Close to the store, and bakery too, a plus!
