About Christy Harris

Musician, filmmaker, artist, investor, surfer who appreciates the art of living.

Why Christy Harris chose Seaside

As a place to raise my daughters during the summers of their childhood and teen years. Now they are young adults and we do not use the home as much. But hosted my oldest daughter's wedding in Seaside in May 2010. I was (and am) very particular when I researched beach properties. Seaside was the only choice. You can bike and walk everywhere and it has this elegantly shabby feel to it.

What makes this house unique

Great stereo system, casual but fine interiors, super comfortable, excellent beds, bathrooms, and cooking accessories. We try and stock the house as if it were your own, with coffee, spices, condiments, sharp knives, cooking accessories, etc.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house, and perfect location. The loft was great and the porch was so nice, even when it was raining. The dryer did not work. Even though they sent a repair person, he was not able to fix it and so cleaning sheets and towels was a bit of an issue. Overall, we loved our stay and appreciated all of the amenities.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the stay and the great review! I am so embarrassed we could not figure out the dryer. It ended up NOT being the dryer, but the vent to the outside, which was clogged ... so we completely replaced. Next time I will make it up to you!!!

Seaside dream cottage

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house and location in Seaside. This house has tons of charm and character.

Very nice furnishings and bedding linens so luxurious. The kitchen was well stocked. the house is so refreshingly colorful and bright. The grandkids loved the porch hammock. We would love to visit again.

Spring Break 2017

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house for a small family. The three bedrooms are all distanced from each other and the loft is a wonderful spot for teenagers to hangout. The kitchen is cook-friendly and has many things other rentals usually don't (dry mustard!, full-size grater!) so you can actually COOK beyond the usual spaghetti and salad. Proximity to the beach, pool and square cannot be beat and the house comes with two bikes, 6 beach chairs, numerous beach towels, and other essentials so that you don't have to haul them from home. The wifi comes in and out, but is easily fixed. The manager is quick to answer any question and assist if she can. The beds are a bit soft, but that is subjective. Overall great house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! We have just replaced all mattresses for a firmer sleep! I pride myself in having comfortable beds, so I hope this change will be even better for our guests. I welcome comments because I am into continuous improvement and love my repeat guests!
