Family of 4 with 2 teenagers. Perfect house that gives privacy and closeness. Well stocked kitchen and everything else you could need. Super clean and highly maintained property. Don't miss local bakery and ice cream shop 3 blocks away. Fabulous hikes/running trails 10 -20 min in any direction. Superb choice for a wonderful get away/vacation. We would return in a heartbeat.

Charming Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely lovely! There was plenty of room for our entire family. The house is so well appointed--it had everything that we needed, including a well fitted kitchen and baths, bicycles, games, videos--you name. The home is just a two minute walk to the beach and the charming town. We can't wait to go back.

Great end of summer getaway on the Oregon coast

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I needed a break from the city with our infant son. We were so lucky to find this charming house, in quiet Gearhart. Great location with quick walk to town and beach. House was quiet and cozy, with all amenities we could desire. We look back fondly our time in Gearhart / at this property...hope we have the opportunity to return.

Gearhart Get-away

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home! It fit our needs perfectly for a family vacation with young kids. We have always loved that neighborhood within Gearhart so we knew what we were getting into location-wise but the house itself is charming. We were especially impressed with abundance of equipment (bikes, rackets, board games, etc.) We also appreciated that the lights and cupboards were clearly labeled as we spent a decent amount of time in the kitchen. Kathleen was able to let us check-in early which was convenient and let us start our vacation that much earlier. Would love to stay here again.

Perfect Cottage for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

This was absolutely our favorite VRBO we have ever rented (and we've rented a lot)! The pictures really don't even capture how clean, modern, and well maintained this home is. The location was perfect, we grilled every night and all slept so well. The huge bonus for us was the fenced in yard for our 4 and 6 year olds to run and play. They loved everything in the shed - soccer balls, badminton, volleyballs, beach toys, wagon. It was just perfect. Plus all the toys and games in the house were just so wonderful. That is one thing usually missing for us at a VRBO and it sure made a difference! Thank you so so much, Kathleen!!! We would definitely come back!!!!

Magic in Gearhart!

  • 5 of 5

5 of us visited Gearhart last weekend for a girl's getaway and to celebrate a milestone birthday (50!), we couldn't have been happier with Kathleen's house. It's in a great location, very peaceful and quiet, and just a few minutes of walking gets you to the beach or coffee shop. The interior is laid out beautifully, it's much roomier than you'd expect, and we appreciated all of the great design touches. The yard is huge with French doors to a nice patio, perfect for outdoor meals, drinks at night, star gazing, and coffee in the morning. The beach is also wonderful, very private and quiet compared to other beaches. The 5 of us get away together regularly, we all agreed that Kathleen's house sets the bar for anywhere else we go in the future. Truly magical and we will be back!
