About Peter & Kathy Schork

Peter and kathy built this ranch home in 2010. Kathy is a native Oregonian, born in pdx! Peter is from AZ. Both love the Oregon coast . Kathy grew up going to the coast on a regular basis with her family of 4 sisters, aunts, uncles, and dog.

Peter & Kathy Schork purchased this house in 2010

Why Peter & Kathy Schork chose Northern Coast

We love this area as the neighborhood is a quiet very secure spot on the bay. The neighbors watch over our home and there are flat streets (no hills) so easy for kids to bike and play. My sister has a rental just one door down. The bay is peaceful and the elk roam in here regularly . Manzanita is so close and ocean access there. Shopping is in both directions to north and south (Tillamook- Fred Meyer) . Boating, clamming, fishing, crabbing, hiking , surfing (Oswald is the spot) and shopping , all close by.

What makes this house unique

peaceful place on one of the many bays in this area. Also a wildlife refuge area as we see elk, beaver, and bald eagles often down by the bay.

Great House!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay!! The nice and quiet neighborhood made relaxing very easy, as did the MOST COMFORTABLE beds ever!! We made ready use of the kayaks and bikes which helped to save us a little extra $ on renting them from local shops. The kitchen was fairly well stocked for all of our cooking needs, the only thing that could have been better was if they had some tupperware for leftover storage. They have ROKU, so if you have Netflix or Amazon video you can watch your shows through the TV. All in all it is well worth the rent!!!

Wonderful home, overview does not do justice

  • 5 of 5

The home is quiet, spacious, and full of literally everything one could need. Photos do not do justice to the comfort and space. The home is really beautiful and comfortable. The owners are very generous and supportive of any questions or needs. This getaway was really a getaway!

Cozy house, great perks, central location

  • 5 of 5

We took a winter family trip to Cannon Beach and stayed at this cabin. It's in a great central location - you can walk to the bay just a half mile away or drive to the ocean, a 10 minute jaunt away. They even have kayaks and life vests we could have used for free along with a computer and printer, wifi, and long distance (in US) calling.

The place is lovely and clean. It's in a quiet neighborhood so you do have several neighbors, but all was silent. The thermostat is each room was great for people who prefer sleeping at different temperatures! And the kitchen had pretty much all the appliances and cooking ware we needed including a blender and even spices. The place is well taken care of and our family loved it. The owners were easy to work with and very helpful and gracious.

We were not able to get the TV working (we were trying to use the Netflix connection) but that was fine as we weren't there to watch TV. Wifi worked just fine. This place is also the first VRBO home I've stayed at that has been super particular however - if you're going with a large group, make sure to start the washer and dryer with a load of linens the morning you're checking out and clean all dishes and such. They have a list of things you need to make sure you do so that the cleaning after you leave doesn't take longer than 3 hours or you'll be charged (it comes out of your damage deposit). It's fair, but just be sure to plan that into your time before you leave the day of checkout.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review and our apologies about the TV. We will look into this on our next trip down to check the house. Regarding prepping the house for house keepers: The housekeepers in this area expect certain things to be done before travelers vacate the home. If not , they won't work with owners to clean their homes. The prep items are pretty standard for that area. Some other VRBO homes I've stayed in it seems do require similar, but with minor differences possibly. Hope you can come again and visit the beautiful Oregon Coast.

Comfortable, Convenient, and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Booked this for a couple's crabbing weekend at the coast. The house is very comfortable and extremely well-equipped. The owners were responsive and accommodating, and were a pleasure to work with when I had a last minute change to my reservation. The house is a 5 min drive to the Manzanita main drag, to Nehalem State Park beaches and trails, and to Nehalem Bay for fishing, boating, and crabbing. We also came across an Elk herd grazing in a neighbor's lawn on both days of our stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. You really hit it perfect with the Elk viewing! This area has endless things to do outdoors and Im glad the November weather was mild! It can happen like that on the coast, more often than people realize. Come see us again!

The owners are amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a vacation booked for this upcoming week. The owners were so great at getting back to me quickly and answering all of my questions. We were not able to stay because of a natural disaster in the area. They were amazingly fast at taking care of our needs and making sure everything was taken care of for our reservation. I really appreciated that there was no hassle. We definitely want to come and stay again when the weather is better!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! Im sorry you couldn't come to the coast, but Tornado's just don't happen there ! A storm was predicted, but not a tornado. Electricity was restored quickly to my amazement, but the town of Manzanita ( 3 minutes north) is still a mess. Many businesses will be closed as crews work to clean up debris. Tillamook is 25 mins south and Cannon beach 15 mins north, but still not as convenient as running into Manzanita for eating out/shopping ect... Please Come see us in the future when skies are blue!

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect, and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful making sure we had correct directions to the house, and instructions on how to enter oncell we arrived. I would definitely recommend beach and bear, and would stay there again myself.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. With so many things to think about when renting a home for a get away or vacation, we try to think of the travelers view on things. Knowing the address , general location, highways close by and lock box key instructions ahead of time reduces traveler stress. We know this, as we too stay in VRBO homes while vacationing! Thank you!
