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 Northern Coast

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.

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!

Great Home well cared for extremely comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house with close proximity to beach and Gearhart. There were 5 adults in our party and quite enough space for everyone with 2 living areas. Nice backyard for dog. We did get use of the fire pit and enjoyed an evening just sitting outdoors. Would definitely recommend this place.

Clean, cozy, comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The house was very comfortable, nicely decorated and well stocked. Our only issue was the TV. Dish is a pain! But, the weather was perfect so we went on several walks to McMenamins, the beach, and the deli on the corner. Astoria is close by so we visited the Flavel house and Fort Clatop with the Lewis and Clark Fort. Very cool if you're a history nerd like me :)
