When we purchased this quaint cedar-shingled cottage, we landed a prime location in the northern end of Seaside, Oregon, the quintessential beach town.

The cottage has easy access to the beach (one block) and promenade, offering countless activities for both kids and adults.

We’ve outfitted the house with your comfort in mind. This means making it easy to relax the minute you walk through the door.

Our house includes:

*2 clam guns, a clam net, a clam digging shovel (also good for digging a fire pit on the beach!). All you need is a license! Clamming in Oregon is open all year, but some dates are closed for health and safety reasons.

*1 crab trap, 1 crab ring, a crab boiling pot. You can catch crab off the 12th street bridge (about three blocks from the house). Crabbing is open year round in Oregon.

*1 gas BBQ, 1 charcoal BBQ

*Beach chairs, beach toys, buckets, shovel, etc.

*WiFi Internet

*Xbox 360 with two wireless controllers.

*HD TV

*Netflix - watch thousands of movies through the Xbox...FREE of charge.

*Wood burning fireplace and gas fireplace

Relax by the wood burning fireplace, walk to downtown along the ocean shore on the promenade, play in the water, barbecue your favorite meal, have a bonfire on the beach...It’s all ready and waiting for you!

Our house is pet friendly!

About Seaside:

About Darren Karr

We live in the Portland area, and we love the beach! We hope our house has everything you want and need. If not, please let us know!

Darren Karr purchased this house in 2007

Why Darren Karr chose Seaside

We love Seaside. It's only 1.5 hours away from our home in the Portland area and is the quintessential beach town. Seaside offers everything we looked for in a beach town.

What makes this house unique

Our house is our second home. We set it up so we could visit at any time and not have to worry about bringing a bunch of things with us. We want this to be the same for our renters. We want our guests to feel at home at our house and we make it as easy as possible to do that. If there are no guests scheduled at the house before or after your stay, there is no check in/out times. We also have an easy entrance system in place so there's no need to stop by and pick up a key and we allow our guests to leave the key in the house when they leave. We also make it easier on our guests by not asking them to do laundry, vacuum, or dishes when they leave. We want your stay to be as relaxing and trouble-free as possible.

winter fun in Seaside!

  • of 5
We had such a great time in seaside! The house was so close to the beach and easily walkable to the restaurants and stores downtown. The house was a good spot to lay our heads at night! The owner left great instructions for the house, although the fireplace was a little difficult to operate and we were nervous we were going to have to sleep in our coats, but we finally got it going. We would definitely stay here again!!

Second stay in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay in this great house! The house was still fully stocked and we noticed a brand new set of pans in the kitchen since our last stay. There also is a new 4 slice toaster which means the kids didn't have to fight over the cinnamon/sugar toast :)
THE highlight of the trip was seeing the drawings my kids colored during our last stay-framed, hanging on the wall!!! If you have kids, have them color a picture or make a drawing or something creative and leave it at the house and the owners will frame it and hang it up! The kids thought that was the coolest thing and of course they had to draw more pictures! All the crab pots and bikes were still in the garage too.
We'll be back again and I defiantly recommend this property to everyone!
PS. There also was a cool new lock on the front door that automatically locks so I felt very safe with my youngest coming and going because I knew if she forgot to lock the door-it would lock itself!

Great location

  • 3 of 5
We booked the house a bit late for a summer beach getaway. Reading the reviews and mapping the location, it looked like a fine fit for us and our two grade school age girls. The house was cute; however, need a lot of TLC. The walls are beat up and in need of paint and spackle, but the carpet stains were overwhelming. We were aware this was a dog friendly home so did not expect the Four Seasons, but Seaside stays in the summer are not cheap either. We had ideal weather during our stay, but the house got quite warm and we could not open many windows, as they were broken and had notes scribbled to not use taped to them. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, thank you. Please have housekeeping check dishes after guests as many things were put away half clean, of course half dirty. Internet use was spotty, but were able to supplement using our phones in town. Many of the games are missing pieces and are all mixed, good busy work for the girls, but didnt find anything complete enough to play but read the state trivia cards at breakfast. All in all, we were so exhausted from our adventures to the beach, bike riding and walking around town that we slept deeply. House just needs someone to come in and give it a lot of attention, whether organizing or cleaning, would've been nice.

Owner's Response: We certainly want our guests to enjoy our house and their vacation to it’s fullest, and we always try to make everything as “homey” as possible. I’ll address the points of this review:

1) Our house is meant to resemble a cottage, not a hotel room. The walls are not damaged or in disrepair. We intentionally did not sheetrock the walls. Instead, we painted over the wood paneling, which left lines and other small blemishes visible through the paint. We feel this contributes to the “cottage” feel and we have never received a complaint about it.

2) The carpets are professionally cleaned immediately before and after the summer season, and it’s impossible to get them cleaned during the summer because of back to back bookings. This guest stayed at the end of the season, so yes, the carpets were stained. But make no mistake, the carpets are thoroughly cleaned between each guest. Our housekeeper attempts to remove stains as much as possible, but some cannot be removed without professional equipment. A “stain”, although not pretty to look at, does not make a dirty carpet.

3) There are seven windows in the house. One had been damaged by a previous guest, and one did not function properly. All other windows, and the ceiling fan were functional.

4) I’m not sure why there were dirty dishes in the cupboard, but the housekeeper has been made aware of this and it won’t happen again.

5) Unlike many other rental houses, we pay for the best and fastest internet service available, and we offer free Netflix. Once in a while I have a guest call complaining about the internet connection. This is not uncommon with internet technology. Every single time the problem was resolved with a simple reboot of the system. Had this guest called me, I could have fixed the problem. As you see in other reviews, I make myself very available to our guests through many communication mediums including phone, text, email, Facebook.

6) We replace the games when needed and try to keep them complete. Unfortunately, we’re unable to get into the house during the summer months to check games, so sometimes at the end of the season the games are missing pieces.

We like to provide our guests with little things that make their stay wonderful, and will continue to do so. We certainly don’t want our guests to have any problems during their stay and will do what we can to prevent this from happening.

Thank you kindly for your comments. We take them very seriously.

Second stay

  • 5 of 5
This is now our second stay Darren was great as he was last year. We love this place and how they are super dog friendly and that we don't get penalized for having animals. If you have any issues; all you have to do is email Darren. This place is great.

Great location, clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5
My 3yr old daughter and my girlfriend stayed for just 2 nights. The house was very clean and we felt safe with the alarm system. The kitchen was stocked with lots of cooking utensils. We had a couple of nice dinners and breakfasts at home. The little one loved the toys and especially the chalk board easel. The garage had some bikes to ride and some kites which is almost a requirement at the beach it also had a crab pot. If I'd had known I would have gotten a license. Being just a couple blocks away from the slough we saw lots of crabbers and some of their haul driving by. The 2 minute walk to the beach was nice. I'm pretty sure we'll be back and I would recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review! I'll put fishing and crabbing license information on the VRBO listing as well as the info I send directly to guests. Thanks for the suggestion and we're very happy you and your family enjoyed your stay!

Great Location - Seaside, OR

  • 3 of 5
Our family enjoyed our stay in Seaside. This home is in a nice location so it is easy to walk to beach or shopping. The garage has beach chairs, kites, and other beach stuff so you don't have to buy stuff. The price was very reasonable and we feel luck to find a nice place on such short notice. The owner was very responsive to my emails.

I have rented about 6 time through VRBO and each location is always lacking a decent pot and pan set. Or a toaster that is not from 1950. When you like to make your own breakfast for 6 it would be nice to have one non-stick large pan and a 4 slice toaster.

This rental is just a few easy improvement from getting a higher rating. Otherwise clean and comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We try very hard to make the house a place where our guests can come in and relax right away. Your suggestions are appreciated and an easy fix. We'll have those items in the house very soon :)
