About Rene Tobin

We are Shawn and Rene Tobin. We live in Gold Bar Washington on the way to Stevens Pass. We have 4 kids and 3 dogs as well as one Grandma living with us. Needless to say hotels are not the place for us! We love vacation houses and stay in them when we travel. We started out buying our first house in Westport when we adopted our 2 youngest children 8 years ago. We needed a place to stay when we came to visit grandmas Glenna and Beth. Our family just did not fit in a hotel room anymore. We decided to rent the house out when we were not using it to make ends meet. We found a property manager to rent it for us but they went out of business. Rene decided to manage the house herself and discovered she really enjoyed the job. We love sharing Westport with others and helping people make vacation memories so when the opportunity to buy Shawn's great uncle Ed's house came up we bought that too. Then Shawn's mom Glenna moved in with us leaving her parents home empty, and so now you can enjoy Grandma's house too.

Rene Tobin purchased this house in 2015

Why Rene Tobin chose Olympic Peninsula & Pacific Coast

This house is owned by the Tobin Family. Shawn Tobin grew up living with his Grandparents Earl and Elizabeth Brown in this house. Years ago we made a deal to buy Grandma's house from her while she lived in it. Shawn wanted the house to stay in the family and he wanted to help his grandma out with a little extra bingo money. Earl was a commercial fisherman with his brother Ed and Elizabeth worked in the canneries. Shawn's mom Glenna worked in the hospitality industry and his sister Mickie worked at the shipyard. Other family owned and worked Cranberry Bogs. Shawn spent his childhood riding his bike around Westport playing in the woods and at the beach and developed a love of nature that led him to work for parks. Rene grew up in the suburbs of Seattle. Her parents loved the beach and family vacations seemed to always led to the coast.

What makes this house unique

Grandma's house has 2 bedrooms with beds set up to accommodate one or two couples or a family with kids. The house is very pet friendly with a fenced yard. Everything you need for comfort and convenience is provided. Meals are easy in the well stocked kitchen, there is a full bath and washer and dryer. We have provided bikes and helmets for just about everyone and a firepit with wood too. And last but not least there is a private hot tub.

We loved our stay here! The kitchen is spacious and open and well equipped. The beds and bedding were comfortable. Plenty of towels for frequent soaks in the hot tub. I picked up several of the cards to give to friends. The hosts and housekeeper were just amazing to me as well!

We will be coming back!

This is Grandma's house

  • 5 of 5

This was an older house that is centrally located in Westport. The description of this place is spot on. We went to the beach several times, and we also enjoyed the hot tub. Roasting marshmallows and sitting by the fire out back was really relaxing as well. There is a local brewery and pub within walking distance as well.

Clean and comfortable

We had a great time staying at this house in Westport with our two young boys. The house was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed plus some! We enjoyed the large yard with the fire pit and the hot tub was wonderful!

Cozy Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do the house justice. Grandma's house was just what our family needed for a long weekend at the ocean. The beds were really comfortable and the pillows were even better. The house has plenty of everything- including toys! My daughters were thrilled to find a bin of Barbies! We loved the hot tub!

Hot tub was fantastic

  • 3 of 5

Everything we needed was there. Couldn't find a flashlight to see controls on hot tub. Never thought to look for it plugged into an outlet. Was what we needed for 2 days. May not have been stayed in for a while, needed a little more attention to cleaning but all in all was Ok for a pet friendly cabin in Westport. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Hi Deb, I was concerned with your review and asked my local manager to check in the guest book to see if there was more detail. She said you noted some silverware that was not washed well and a wine glass in the cupboard with wine in it. I am assuming that the reason for the 3 stars was these cleaning issues, as the flashlight was there. I believe the hot tub key pad lights up? And we do have decorative lights out there as well. My focus is to provide a reasonably priced vacation with all the convenient extras so that guests can relax. This does create a more complicated situation when balancing cost and a well stocked home. We do expect for guests to wash and put away all dishes they use. Most people do a very good job so our housekeeper usually focuses her attention on other areas. I am sorry you were bothered by this. I am sure she will increase her vigilance when checking the kitchen. We are also in the process of doing a deep clean in preparation for the upcoming busy season. Sincerely, Rene

Car: recommended

The little aquarium in Westport is run by a very enthusiastic and fun family. We highly recommend visiting. Much of the year there are tons of sea lions on the docks. Of course fishing, surfing and family time at the beach are the most popular activities our guests enjoy.
