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!!!

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!

White carpet alert

  • 3 of 5

I would definitely NOT stay here again. The location is nice.

But there are post it notes everywhere with instructions. You are suppose wash your own sheets or you will get charged extra. Buy your own toilet paper and haul your own recycling. None of which I want to do on vacation. Also, there is white carpet, which is super stressful with kids. For some crazy reason, they allow pets with that carpet. Our friends brought their dog and that was awful to manage with the carpet.

We ended up paying to clean the carpet. Although, the owners did not inform me of this until several weeks later after they had rented it to others. And we did not drink wine nor grape juice.

Perfect rental for an old couple who does not go to the beach or cook their own food.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the suggestion on the Notes and I'll be putting all the house instructions summarized on one laminated sheet. All house instructions are strictly for safety issues and cleanliness. VRBO homes have a standard protocol with housekeepers and laundry must be started before departure. One load in wash , one in dryer. Dishes done. This is standard requirement of all house keepers. This area has no recycling service. If people choose to leave recycles, I must pay my house keeper $25/hour to take them to the recycle center. Guests have an option to take them to Cartem themselves, or for a $15 fee we can dispose of them for the guest. Our house supplies all hand soap, dish soap, citrus shower body wash, and shampoo, laundry detergent , TP, and paper towels. All extra supplies are in a large bin in the garage. It's always stocked. Most vrbo homes do not allow pets. We offer the traveler the luxury of bringing dogs. Our carpet is a medium golden color. There are NO " White " carpets anywhere in this home! Our carpets were cleaned 3 weeks prior to this guests arrival, the entire house. After this traveler's stay my house keeper immediately documented with photos extensive stains and spills on the carpet. Our house keeper is very professional, a seasoned cleaner and knows our home. The owner personally went to the home and saw the extend of the spills , and stains and they were clearly of a dark nature ( dark juice?) and far too copius , and spread across two rooms, to clean by hand. The housekeeper said " It looks like toddlers ran around with a juice cup and food ! " A professional cleaner was clearly necessary. The house keeper had to spend an hour extra time to clean after this stay. The owners had to cancel three other guests desiring to book at the end of September due to having to schedule this extra carpet clean.

Nice clean house with a great location near Manzanita. Bring your Computer TV, sleep on lumpy beds

  • 3 of 5

The house is located in a nice quiet neighborhood with good access to everywhere near Manzanita. The house is clean and offers nice amenities to use at your disposal. Well stocked kitchen equipment, though we didn't cook much at the house. The BBQ's needed some attention, so we forfeited our opportunity to use them. Nice TV with plenty of movie options, however bring your Computer TV PIN Number or local channels (weather, sports) are not available. Take note...Lumpy beds and the WiFi fritzed out on us on one of the nights.

Owner's Response: Cable: We have found the cable service to be sub par for the cost incurred. We've provided ROKU service in replacement , and have found it to offer a wide range of programming (netflix, HBO, CBS, NBC ...) . Guests can access their "own" cable service program if they provide their PIN and ID to Roku's online connection. WIFI: Occasionally, WIFI can go out. Please follow the same steps you would in re-setting your home wifi router. There are NO real "local channels" except Fish and Tide reports and Chamber of Commerce news. BBQ: Each guest , after bbq use, is supposed to HEAT the grill and scrap off grates with brushes provided. There are posted instructions. The house keeper normally will check the bbq, spray and wipe down each clean. Beds: We realize every one's comfort level is different for sleeping. The Master bed has a memory foam on it, which may not suit everyone. This mattress is not old. The Queen bed has a low profile pillow top and is firmer. The twin beds are even newer and definitely firmer. I'm glad you enjoyed the location and house overall. Thank you for your comments.

Awesome get-away!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect, we had a great time. If I had one complaint it would be that it didn't have cable tv, especially since the Olympics were on and we would have like to watch them a little in the evenings, but other than that it was great. Perfect location.

Owner's Response: So sorry about the TV and olympics. We are currently working on the whole TV update issue. . We are weighing all factors with how often the house is used ect... Im sure we will figure out something to bring improvement . I'm glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise.!
