About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible sofabed, 3 Baths,

Our classic and beautiful beach house is close to everything and it's very roomy! With views of the Pacific Ocean, you're only steps away from the bucolic and serene Gearhart Dunes and beach.

With plenty of bedrooms and a large, open floor plan, we can accommodate you and your guests. Each room has its charm with plenty of storage. Classic bead board and large, picture windows mark its sunny style. Enjoy the deck and yard - after a day at the beach, come back and barbeque while you enjoy the ocean breezes, or cozy up to the beautiful river rock wood-burning fireplace. Soak in the clawfoot tub, cook in the beautiful updated kitchen with friends or relax in the den, make a puzzle, play cards or bring work (if you must!) as the house has WiFi, cable, DVD so you can keep in touch in this completely updated and charming historic home on 'Martini Hill'.

A five minute walk can take you to the noted Pacific Way Cafe, Sugar Shack and Gearhart Market. Even closer are the tennis & basketball courts and the historic Gearhart Golf Course and McMenamin's Sand Trap Restaurant. To get more action in, you're only a 5 minute drive from Seaside, 10-15 minutes to Cannon Beach to the south and just 15 minutes to historic Astoria to the north.

If you are planning a vacation to the Oregon Coast, this is the home for you, your family and friends. Come and enjoy!

About CR

We are a family with children who love the ocean and beach throughout the year and love the quaint character of Gearhart.

Why CR chose Gearhart

There is no city on the coast like Gearhart - it has a feel of Martha's Vineyard, Cape Cod, or Sag Harbor, with the Oregon stamp of authenticity.

What makes this house unique

The location and proximity to the beach, to great shopping and activities with a sense of privacy and the classic beach house environment, makes for a memorable vacation.

Our Favorite Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

We love staying in this home. It's the perfect size for grandma, mom, dad and three kids! We appreciate the well stocked kitchen, with plentiful silverware, plates, and linens. A few extra steak knives and paring/cutting knives would be a nice addition.

We love how close the home is to the beach, and the quiet neighborhood. Even with the giant storm that came through for three of our vacation days, we still got out for quick walks. And we took many long walks on the sunnier days.

The proximity to the Pacific Way Bakery was dangerous! They have the best chocolate croissants and blackberry tarts we've ever had. Just make sure to go early before they run out!

There's plenty to do at home too. We made several fires in the fireplace, read books, put together puzzles, and did a LOT of knitting. As crafters, we would love to have a few more lamps as there are no over head lights in the main sitting room and in the evenings it was quite dark.

Thank you for the new bedding in the master! It's beautiful. The beds are all very comfortable too. My daughter was impressed by how nice the mattress was in the bunk bed.

Overall we are so pleased with this rental. Christine is responsive and kind. We hope to make this trip an annual tradition.

Just Great

  • 5 of 5

A really special house that invited my family to make memories. During a wonderful week we made a bunch because this house is intimate even though it's spacious and flooded with light. In addition to being beautiful, the house was stocked with everything that a gracious host would provide guests, beginning with a "Welcome" note and a bottle of white wine. We couldn't have asked for more. From the deck and backyard, we could hear the ocean 24/7 and see it from the study, the dining room and two of the upstairs bedrooms, including the master bedroom. Every day we walked on the broad, flat beach that begins just yards from the house, and that feels private because there are so few people on it. Traveling from Portland and from San Francisco, my family has been gathering at the coast for years. This house and Christine's thoughtfulness helped make this year's gathering just great.

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The sitting room, dining room, and family room are spacious and the furniture comfortable. We made a fire in the fireplace every day and it was so inviting to sit there and listen to the crackling. The kitchen was perfect - large and well stocked. We barely ate out the whole trip! The bedrooms were laid out well for our 3 kids, my mom, and my husband and me. We all had plenty of space. We had a few questions during our stay, and the hosts were so friendly and responsive to our calls. We really appreciated that.

The house was cold, and it took us a few days to figure out the thermostat, but there were lots and lots of blankets and even a space heater.

The beds were all soft, but very comfortable. I normally have back pain when sleeping on such a soft mattress, but I didn't have any problems with the beds. The master bedding was a bit worn, threadbare and ripping in places, so I'd encourage the hosts to invest in a new comforter and sheets for the master. However, the bedding sets in all the other rooms were great.

We absolutely loved being so close to the beach. We walked on the beach every morning and every afternoon. The neighborhood is also very nice for walking. Quiet and picturesque - we even met the neighbor and his new puppy!

Our only real complaint with the house was the lack of lighting in the family areas in the evenings. During the day, all of the windows let in beautiful natural light. We brought knitting, crochet, and weaving projects for the trip, and the house gets very dark at night. There are lamps, but they just aren't bright enough for crafting.

All in all we had the best time, and this was one of our favorite properties we've ever stayed in. Thank you so much! We will be back.

There is the enjoyable and historic Seaside Aquarium and Promenade less than 10 minutes away. Bike rentals, kayak and small boat rentals, bumper cars and taffy like none other too!
