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.

Great beach house for crabbing!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for the stay! We felt very comfortable at Grandma's house. It was homey and had everything that we needed. We enjoyed the fire pit and hot tub. Several movies and books available for use. Great location for crabbing and exploring the marinas.

Ocean Fun

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Grandma's house for a week over the 4th of July. We enjoyed the house and yard and will be back. Would have loved to be able to walk to the beach rather than drive, but having a house that allows dogs made up for it in every way.

We're foodies and couldn't believe it when we saw the Belgique pans and a cast iron skillet. We brought our own cast iron pans but wouldn't have needed to. The oven appears to be pretty new, is very clean and keeps at the correct temperature. There is anything that you would want in the kitchen. We used the crock pot to have spaghetti sauce cooking all day and ready for us when returning from the ocean.

The hot tub is new and we enjoyed it after sitting out by the camp fire. There are plenty of towels and products in the bathroom that if you forgot something it would probably be at the house. The internet works well and there is basic cable TV. You'll also find a collection of movies and books.

Most important for us was being able to bring our dog. We usually camp so we can bring Cooper but Gramma's house understood that and even provides dog beds and bowls.

The house is older but clean and well maintained. We met the couple who maintains the house and couldn't ask for nicer people.

Would definitely give the house a five star rating. The only negative would be that there is too much stuff in the house. They could get rid of half the bedding and kitchen stuff and still have more than enough. The closets are hard to use because they are packed with bedding and plastic containers with more bedding.

Thank you to Gramma for a great rental at a reasonable price. You rock!!

Delightful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Grandma's House. This was a family reunion week which included the Pirate Daze of Westport. The house is comfortable with a very well equipped kitchen. The fenced backyard was good for the family dogs. We made use of the fire pit, (smores), and it was great to have the fire wood supplied. We recommend any of the

Tobin vacation homes as we rented all three for the week.

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!

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.
