About Rene Tobin

Edwin Brown bought the home with his wife Della and raised their girls Pam and Edwina there in Westport. Ed was a commercial fisherman, a golfer and a fixture of the community. He was even Mayor for a time. Ed passed away in his 90's in 2012, His daughters wanted the house to stay in the family so gifted it to Ed's Great Nephew Shawn Tobin and family. The Tobin's are a busy family with 4 kids and 2 dogs who love to get away but sympathize with how hard it is to find a great place with space and amenities for the kids and pets.

Beautiful weekend at the beach

  • 4 of 5
Mr Ed's is a wonderful place, very comfortable and cozy. It had everything we needed. My 5yr old loved the beach toys and bicycles. There was plenty of room for the 6 of us (5 adults and 1 child) . Loved reading about Ed and his life and family. We will definitely be back...

Spending a few nights here was like staying with an old friend, who let you borrow all his stuff.
This is a classic Westport home with lots of character. It is old, and not everything matches but there is so much there, who cares? We enjoyed a large, fully furnished kitchen that allowed us to cook and serve full meals for 14 people as easily as if we were at home. The beds and pillows were plentiful, and very comfortable. The towels and bedding were all like new, and smelled good. The best part was that everything was very, very clean—from the bathrooms, to the floor, to the silverware. When we arrived, the house had an 'old home' odor, that quickly went away when we opened up a few of the many, many windows to allow the fresh air to circulate.

The location is convenient, and is in a busy area of Westport. The yard is secluded and offers privacy for you to gather around the fire pit. We could hear the surf through our window at night, and not much else.
The owner, Rene, was friendly and easy to work with.

Family Fun In Westport

  • 4 of 5
Our Family Loved Mr. Ed's. The house had everything we needed and enough room for everyone and then some!! Mr. Eds has alot of that old house charm with the awesome original wood floors upstairs and the huge bedrooms!!! It is definitely a diamond in the rough which we loved because we didn't have to worry and did not feel like the kids our dogs were going to ruin anything. The outdoor yard is huge with a great fire pit and the front yard is even fenced in for the dogs. Also the BEST coffe ever is only a block away!!! It was very relaxing and everyone had a great time we will stay again for sure!!

Shabby but functional

  • 2 of 5
Pros: Beautiful beach! Paved bike trail through the dunes. There were bikes at the house that you could use. The house is at the end of a quiet street. Comfy beds.
Cons: The house is old and shabby, which we expected from the pictures. What we didn't expect was that it hadn't been aired out for us before arrival. It had been closed for several days and smelled awful. Once we aired it out for a few hours, it was fine.

Owner's Response: I have spent all day trying to decide how and if I should respond to this, I have decided to see it as an opportunity to clarify our mission (and yes to us it is a mission) and who we wish to serve. Ed was a great uncle, he loved life and he loved fishing enough to make it his life. He lived in Westport and raised his family in the house. As Ed lived well into his nineties, and enjoyed golf more than carpentry, the house needed a whole lot of work when we took it on. We have 4 kids, two we adopted from foster care with special needs and we are care giving for a disabled parent as well. We love to travel and really value traditional family vacations. But for many families, including ours, money is tight and by the time you get done packing and traveling and taking care of the kids on a "vacation" parents can get really wiped out, so our mission is to provide an affordable place with space and amenities to make things easy for the caregivers too. We provide a significant number of bikes free for you to use, kites, sand toys, books, movies and games, all in good shape and at no cost. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to prepare meals on a budget including a crock pot. A good nights rest is important to the weary caregiver, so we made sure to prioritize comfy beds and high quality bedding. We have spent 6 months and thousands of dollars renovating Mr. Ed's. Everyone helped and we are proud of what we have achieved. We gutted the bathroom and utility room. replaced all the plumbing, upgraded the electrical, installed electric heat and put a vapor barrier under the whole house. All the flooring has been redone or replaced. We have a fenced yard and dog beds with removable covers for you canine family members. It is an 80 year old house on the Washington coast, it has been humid there this summer, but we stayed there for a week at a time many times over the last 6 months and despite allergies and asthma in our family had no issues with air quality in the house. We plan to continue working on the house as time and money permit, so Ed's will get better and better, we really value respectful feedback as this helps us decide what to prioritize. We have a guest book and welcome your adding to our to-do list in the back. We do not intend to make Ed's pristine as this would not serve our intended guests. Our focus is family fun. convenience and affordability. If you share our vision of a 5 star vacation rental then we welcome you.

Weekend in Westport!

  • 3 of 5
We came to Westport to fish and enjoy the beach. this house had everything we needed for our stay. plenty of room for 2 couples and a fenced yard for the dogs to play. The beds were comfortable and there were coloring books and stuff for the kids to do. Nothing fancy but everything you need! The beach was a 3 minute drive, you could walk as I think it was only about a mile. The owners were very nice and easy to deal with. Thanks we will stay again!
