Coastal Oregon House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

BIG G RENTAL -1104 S 11th St. Garibaldi, OR 97118

All the comforts of home just yards from Tillamook Bay! Please Visit our Home web page below for more pictures and Info on the area.

Incredible views of the bay from our property (especially from the new Cedar 10x20 deck off the patio door) and only steps away from putting your feet on the sandy beach. From this beach, take in the views of the historic wharf, coast guard stations,and hills all around or try your hand at clamming. Barview Park is 1 1/2 miles from this property where the sandy, ocean beach provides miles and miles of sea shell collecting, jogging, and bird watching. Even try some surf fishing! Other area interests are: the Tillamook Air Museum (which used to house quite a few blimps in it's day), museums, quaint little shops, charter boats, Tillamook cheese factory and lots of other area beaches and rivers. Come visit the northern Oregon Coast and stay at the Big G House (An Oregon Coast Vacation House) located in Garibaldi next to the beautiful Tillamook Bay.

The house is a comfortable 2300 square feet and has been partially remodeled including new vinyl windows, large patio door that opens up to the beautiful newly built Cedar deck (overlooks the bay). There's 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a recreation room, a huge utility room (we added bunk beds for your convenience, to make 3.5 bedrooms), kitchen, dining area & nice sized living room. This home has a split level entry with a covered porch on entry.

The kitchen has been updated with new appliances including a dishwasher. The upstairs bathroom has been remodeled and features a tub/shower combo for your convenience. There's another bathroom downstairs that has also been remodeled and has a shower stall. The master bedroom features a king sized bed and a full size futon. Then there's 2 additional bedrooms downstairs with queen sized beds for your comfort. We have added bunk beds in the huge utility room as a bonus for families. The utility room features a new HE washing machine, a very quiet moisture sensing dryer, and a utility sink plus the bunk beds. So no coin-ops here!!! The large living room features a newer leather sectional sofa, a matching rocker/recliner and additional chair all for your comfort as you watch movies on the new Samsung 50' LCD HD Smart TV, or listen to some music on our nice sound system. Need to research something online or want to check your social media? No problem, WiFi is now available and is FREE to our guests. If all the excitement gets to be a bit too much... simply just kick back and relax-you're at the coast!

The open floor plan allows for a large dining area with 2 seperate dinette sets that can seat about 10 people.... and to feed those 10 people, how about the nice, big, fully equipped kitchen. We have provided everything you would need such as; a microwave, ceramic stove-top, dutch oven, blenders, crock pots, coffee maker, toaster, utensils, pots/pans, dining service for about 10 people. Cook your favorite meals while enjoying the breathtaking views of the Tillamook Bay right out the two, big windows in the kitchen! Or sit outside of the dining area, on the big deck and take in that fresh, sea air!

For entertainment, try the big rec room downstairs. There's a pool table, board games, puzzles or enjoy the large selection of our video library.

Outside, we have a large backyard with fruit trees and mature landscaping. Have some fresh fish/crab to grill? No problem! Please feel free to use the new large gas grill or or the charcoal grill provided for you, all while you watch Eagles & nesting Blue Herons nearby!

There's plenty of room for parking in the pull through gravel driveway we've designed. Can hold about 4 vehicles and a boat so space is not a problem.... We also have a carport for your use if you desire.

There is no smoking allowed in the house but covered areas outside are provided for your smoking convenience.

Keywords: Two story, split level entry, beach view

About Randy Smith

Tillamook Bay- May 09- Garibaldi Oregon. Only Steps away from our property.

Randy Smith purchased this house in 2002

Why Randy Smith chose Coastal Oregon

This was our grandparents home they built in the 70's and is located at 1104 Garibaldi Ave Garibaldi , Oregon 97118 .We pretty much grew up here. We love the coast, family and friends that live nearby. This town, Garibaldi, has alot of history and some of the best fishing, crabbing and clamming. It is tucked away from the wind which blows in from the sea. Garibaldi is a great little fishing village yet so close to big towns like Tillamook and Seaside (a beautiful drive up hwy 101). Also, this town is surrounded by tons of beaches and mountains which makes it one of the greatest places to be.

What makes this house unique

Tillamook bay gives you easy access to charter boats, steam engine train rides, cheese factory, lighthouses, waterfalls, museums, Sandlake dune park, several rivers, old Blue Spruce forest (which has the biggest known Spruce in Oregon), the Octopus tree and tons, tons more. Other major reasons that make our property desirable to stay at is walking out on the wharf to watch the sun set over the bay or watching the Blue Heron's nest in trees, on the hill, behind our house.

This charming house was perfect for the million (just kidding 9) of us!! The pool table downstairs was an absolute lifesaver for the kids once the adults were all wore out! Perfect walking distance from the beach~~ which was a nice cove that allowed us to have an AMAZING personal fireworks show on the 3rd!! Minutes from everything!! Thank you!!!!!

Very nice location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a three day weekend June 10-13 and enjoyed a reunion with some of our children who live in various Oregon cities. The house was neat, well supplied and as advertised. It is very handy to everything of interest. The view is very good of Tilamook Bay, looking right at the Coast Guard station. The water is a short stroll away for clambing or crabbing. Randy was easy to deal with and we got our security deposit back after cleaning it to the level we found it when we arrived. We recommend this vacation home to anyone wanting to get the flavor of a pleasant fishing village quite removed from the tourist atmosphere of other nearby towns. A local sportsman recommended we have clam chowder at Pacific City Oyster in Bay City a mile or two away. We did and were quick to do it a second time. You won't be disappointed with your visit to Big G and Garibaldi.

A great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this rental for 2 nights. My parents came from out of town and they loved every details in this home. There are lots of spaces in the house and we didn't even have to use the 3rd bedroom.

Randy, the owner, took great care of the home and ensured our stay is as relaxed and enjoyable as possible. The kids also enjoyed the pool table very much.

This is a quiet small town for those who want to escape the city to wind down and recharge.

The only minor detail I suggest to look into is the downstairs bathroom that makes lots of noise when flushing at night. :)

Otherwise, I'll stay at this rental again in the future.

Disappointing rental

  • 1 of 5

We chose to rent this place because it was across the street from the pier and sand for the kids so they can have fun clamming and attempting to catch some crabs on the pier. In the end the owners did not return our deposit because they complained of the sand left behind by our kids and using too many towels and making use of all the beds. We did the best we could with vacumming on hand but in the end nothing was broken and there is nothing stating how many towels can be used and how many beds can be touched. The owners informed me that they had the neighbors keep an eye on us the whole weekend so the fact that we were being spied on was another thing. Why rent out your home if you are going to complain about little things. Families go to the coast to have a good time and sometimes sand may get left behind and you may have to do more laundry in some rentals than others but you charge a cleaning fee that is already includesd with the rental so to deduct from the deposit is not part if the rental terms unless something gets briken or damaged and nothing was. I would never rent or recomment this rental to anyone with kids!

Owner's Response: Rest assured that the person who has just left us such a bad review was one upset renter out of the HAPPY hundreds we have had in the 10+ years. This "bad apple" has lied and is trying to manipulate the VRBO Reviews System in order to get at us. When this renter reserved our vacation home, the booking was for 2 adults and 3 children for a 2 nights stay. We charged her accordingly, as we do allow up to 6 people at no additional cost but anymore than 6, we do charge a bit more, per person, per night (which is standard). Once our renter had checked out of our property (after a 2 nights stay), my co owner (who is my brother) went to the property to do some landscape work and was the one who did the inspection & cleaning. Immediately after entering the home, he sent me many text picture messages and even took some videos to show how filthy our home was due to this renter! Normally we only charge a SMALL nonrefundable fee which does NOT cover extra cleaning, extra people, and/or any damage to the property. In this case, the renter was issued only a partial refund and has complained about that as she felt it was unfair.... She claims that she cleaned everything but yet there was food splattered all over the kitchen countertops, oven, cabinets, and both dining tables, not to mention all over the upstairs & downstairs floors! Furniture had been moved and not put back, floors were covered in dirt, sand and food debris. A full cleaning had to be done in this 2200 sq ft home, not to mention 10 loads of laundry as they used every single bed in the home (and for 2 adults, 3 kids... having 6 sets of sheets to wash from the 6 beds used = more people stayed than she claimed. Also, a neighbor (for over 30 years) happen to make mention she saw 3 cars in our driveway the entire weekend. So the fact that all the beds were used, and there were 17 bath towels to wash, plus the food splatter all over the home, this renter received a partial refund as we had excessive cleaning to do. This had nothing to do with what she is saying about cleaning up sand etc. This renter packed their bags and walked out, not having wiped up any of their messes whatsoever then complains because we had to hold back a bit more of her refund to cover the extra work involved... It is our intention to provide a comfortable, clean & fun environment during each renter's stay at our coast house but this renter was clearly out of the "norm". We ARE kid & pet friendly (as we have kids and pets ourselves).

Plenty of room, clean, pet friendly.

  • 4 of 5

Close to Tillamook, great quick drives for exploring. Plenty of space for family of 8 with indoor activities, puzzles, pool table, card games cable tv and Wi-Fi. Beds are comfortable and clean. Owners are quick to respond to needs and questions. Only draw back I found was view, limited by log yard and trees, and being on main hwy 101 in Garibaldi.

Perfect place to gather and relax!

  • 5 of 5

Very cozy and spacious home in an easy to find location. My sisters and I gathered for the weekend to have some girl-time before the youngest has her wedding in a month. We were all pleased with the accommodations and had a great time enjoying the house and company. The owner was very helpful with information and keeping us apprised of any booking changes that could effect our arrival and departure times. We have family in the Tillamook County area and I definitely see us renting this house again in the future! Thank you so much!
