Seaside House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

NO Tax!

NO Pet fee!

NO Extra guest fee!

Our calendar is up to date!! Pets are welcome!!!

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.

*High Speed WiFi Internet

*Xbox 360 with two wireless controllers.


*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 Darren Karr

We grew up and lived in the Portland area and enjoyed Seaside for most of our lives. Recently, we moved to Alexandria Virginia! 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 Coastal Oregon

We love Seaside. It's only 1.5 hours away from 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. We also have an easy entrance system in place so there's no need to stop by and pick up a key. 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.


Excellent! 4.6/5 -

Perect beach house for families close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Great beach house with plenty of fun for our 3 year old! The house has great beach charm, and anything you could want to do while at the beach! Plus a nice fenced yard to let the dogs out without having them on a leash! Just a short walk to the beach and the prom! We were able to walk to downtown from the house along the prom easily with 2 kids and 2 dogs! Also it's a nice distance so we were away from the busy downtown beach but close enough to go to that area by walking!

Great experience!

  • 4 of 5

The pictures were accurate, we were very pleased with the whole set up. Bathroom is a little different; right off the kitchen and exiting into the garage but it works. The queen bed slopes down toward your feet and the king bed slopes up so your head goes down but we were only there for two nights so we managed. The grandkids felt very comfortable and the adults felt it was very kid friendly. Great access to the beach. The property was clean . The owner provided very good customer service. I would recommend this property to friends and family.

Getaway Weekend

  • 3 of 5

Great location, good parking, and excellent security. Interior needs paint, bathroom location is not convenient, bed very soft (felt like my feet were higher than my head), bunk beds require maintenance with tightening of screws (structure wobbles a bit), rooms were permeated with smoke oder from fireplace, and some window blinds did not function smoothly. This is an older home, but cozy, lots of board games for kids, excellent wifi, large television, and kitchen contained everything we needed for eating.

I would probably not stay at this place again.

So cute!

  • 4 of 5

The house was super cute and very close to the beach and main Boardwalk. The only unfortunate thing was the app you have to do the booking with deleted all of the check-in information we needed so that made it difficult. Besides that had a great time staying here and absolutely loved the house :-)

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review! The house was built in 1926, and we've done our best to preserve it's authentic beach cottage feel, while at the same time giving our guests as many frills as possible. Among other things, we offer HD TV through DISH and a 42" HD television; our internet is the fastest speed available, with WiFi; we have crabbing, clamming, and fishing gear; beach toys and other beach gear. If you have suggestions for anything you think we should have in the house, please let me know!! Darren Karr

Great location for a beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our two dogs really enjoyed this beach vacation. Located close to the beach was great which also includes a nice peaceful walk to downtown on sand. The fenced yard was enjoyed by our dogs. The home is supplied with everything we needed plus lots of games and outside supplies. Altho we were more interested in the big screen tv, we could have gone crabbing, razor clamming or biking. Home was very clean and the gas stove really warmed up the home in the morning. We drove to Astoria to see the Columbia River Maritime Museum and around Cannon Beach. We didn't take time to go to the Outlet stores or Theatre but they both located within a few blocks but we did hit a lot of the restaurants and they are all very good. I texted the owner and he answered back within just a few minutes which was really nice.

We highly recommend this beach getaway and plan on using again.
