Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi, Kathy! Just wanted to let you know that we truly enjoyed staying at your beautiful beach house in Gearhart...it was absolutely perfect for our family and had everything we could ever want or need!...and what a perfect location and spectacular view! WOW! Our two-year-old grandson played in the sandbox for hours, we enjoyed sitting around the firepit and making s'mores, and made several fun jaunts to the beach...and of course to the Pacific Way Bakery!

Thank you again for helping to make our time on the Oregon Coast so very special and memorable!

I am a native Oregonian. I have been managing rental properties since 1990 and take great pride in providing clean, relaxing, user-friendly places for my guests to enjoy their family, friends and life's adventures.

Kathy Schroeder purchased this house in 2010

My husband grew up vacationing at this home with his family and the previous owner who owned it for 47 years. He and I were fortunate in 2010 to buy it from this life-long friend and to put two full years of significant effort into bringing this century-old home into the 21st century with all new windows, doors, a new foundation, new electrical, plumbing, floors and all new landscaping while maintaining the Nantucket-style shabby chic flair of the home.

This home has an incredible location on Gin Ridge in Gearhart (so-named based on historic local lore) with views to the west of the Pacific Ocean and to the east of the Coastal mountains. Easy walks reward you at the beach or at Pop's Cafe with a warm scone and latte.

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE WITH ALL THE AMENITIES - PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Three families rented the house over New Years Eve. We had a fabulous time. The house is beautiful and comes with every amenity you can think of. The location could not be better and everyone had a blast. I have been vacationing on the Oregon coast my whole life and have stayed in countless rental homes. This one is at the top of the list. Often in rentals the kitchen is not well equiped or the bedding is shabby. Complete opposite with this house. I highly recommend and we look forward to returning in the summer months.

EXCELLENT HOUSE

We had a wonderful time and the house perfect. The kitchen is big and functional as is the dining/living area. Five bedrooms and three baths makes for generous living.

CHARMING OREGON COSTAL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect setting for a writing retreat. Spacious home with beautiful views provided amle room for group work and individual quiet time with a homey feel. Recently renovated this house had all the modern amenities to make our stay comfortable but still felt like we were staying in a rustic beach house. Loved the fire place! Can't wait to go back.

PERFECT FOR WRITING RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
Ocean views through sparkling clean picture windows, gourmet meals prepared in a fully stocked kitchen, and comfortable furniture and beds were all part of our memoir writing retreat at Tom and Kathy's Beach House. When we needed a break from writing, we were steps away from Gearhart's gorgeous, expansive, sandy beach. Really, the beach is visible from the entire west side of the house, and there is an easy path from the porch to the beach, or into the adorable town if you choose. For writing and visiting, we had plenty of seating, including chairs around the dining table, wicker chairs and chaises, a sofa, and pillows around the gas stove, which kept us cozy when a rainstorm blew in. Six women worked in the kitchen together, with one or two women at one of the stations laid out so thoughtfully by Kathy.
Every detail was seen to. Just when I thought everything was perfect, Kathy tightened a towel hook that was a bit loose. In the bathrooms and bedrooms, there are hooks and hangers everywhere for damp towels, jackets, purses, and so many belongings one would like hung. My room had a bureau with a mirror, two chairs, a luggage rack, and a little trash can. This place was designed with travelers' needs in mind!
And, it is beautiful. The blue and white color scheme is harmonious, with splashes of red for energy. Local and world art catch your eye and make it fun to just browse and take a stroll through the house.
I can't wait to return to Tom and Kathy's beach house for the next writing retreat!

WRITERS WORKSHOP WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
One by one the ladies arrived
Complete with memories vivid and buried
Books and pens a plenty, homework on our minds
And food, delicious food and wine
No risk of starvation this weekend

This incredibly well maintained beach/retreat house stirred our creative juices. The walks on the beach cleared the cobwebs and left an exhilarated feeling of wellness
I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a work session or just a relaxing time with family and friends

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Mary for the nice review. Glad our home worked out for your group of writers to both work together and work separately. Long walks on the beach are always a bonus in November!

HOUSE GUESTS

  • 5 of 5
The house is warm, comfy --- a total delight. I do think the request that all the laundry and dishwashing be TOTALLY completed is a bit unreasonable. Some of us left early in the a.m. Others stayed to have breakfast and take their time packing up. The washing machine takes a long time to run the cycle. Staying long enought to get everything our of the dryer and the dishes put away --- a little unreasonable. I do no think that wet laundry should be left to mildew --- but to ask guest to hang around until all the laundry is done is asking a bit much.

Everything is very convenient and well stocked. Thank you so much.

Clamming was very successful.

Owner's Response: Dear Sid,
Glad your group enjoyed successful clamming and thanks for finishing your dishes and the laundry. I'm sorry if you felt like you had to complete the washing and drying of all the sheets and towels you used. My hope from guests is that they just get it started. Occasionally cleaning staff finishes cleaning the house and sits and around and waits to complete the washing and drying especially when there have been a lot of guests.

My home instructions request:
"· Strip all the beds you used (not mattress covers unless stained) and please start and finish washing & drying as many sheets and towels as you can. No need to remake beds, but please fold clean sheets and stack on beds so cleaning staff will know what’s clean. Please do not leave any wet laundry. It may be a day or two before cleaning staff gets to the house to clean."

In our pre-arrival communication, I did remind you that cleaning staff would arrive immediately after your departure, so leaving wet laundry would have been fine.

I appreciate you taking the time to respond and am happy that you all enjoyed some decent weather.
Kathy
