About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible sofabed, 3 Baths,

Updated, upgraded and refreshed - our classic and beautiful beach house is close to everything and it's very roomy! With views of the Pacific Ocean, you're only steps away from the bucolic and serene Gearhart beach.

With plenty of bedrooms and a large, open floor plan, we can accommodate you and your guests. Each room has its charm with plenty of storage. Classic bead board and large, picture windows mark its sunny style. Enjoy the deck and yard - after a day at the beach, come back and barbeque while you enjoy the ocean breezes, or cozy up to the beautiful river rock wood-burning fireplace. Soak in the clawfoot tub, cook in the beautiful updated kitchen with friends or relax in the den, make a puzzle, play cards or bring work (if you must!) as the house has WiFi, cable, DVD so you can keep in touch in this updated and charming home on 'Martini Hill'.

A five minute walk can take you to the noted Pacific Way Cafe and Gearhart Market. Even closer are the tennis & basketball courts and the historic Gearhart Golf Course and McMenamin's Sand Trap Restaurant. To get more action in, you're only a 5 minute drive from Seaside, 10-15 minutes to Cannon Beach to the south and just 15 minutes to historic Astoria to the north.

If you are planning a vacation to the Oregon Coast, this is the home for you. Come and enjoy!

About CR

We are a family with children who love the ocean and beach throughout the year and love the quaint character of Gearhart.

Why CR chose Coastal Oregon

There is no city on the coast like Gearhart - it has a feel of Martha's Vineyard, Cape Cod, or Sag Harbor, with the Oregon stamp of authenticity.

What makes this house unique

The location and proximity to the beach, to great shopping and activities with a sense of privacy and the classic beach house environment, makes for a memorable vacation.

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The sitting room, dining room, and family room are spacious and the furniture comfortable. We made a fire in the fireplace every day and it was so inviting to sit there and listen to the crackling. The kitchen was perfect - large and well stocked. We barely ate out the whole trip! The bedrooms were laid out well for our 3 kids, my mom, and my husband and me. We all had plenty of space. We had a few questions during our stay, and the hosts were so friendly and responsive to our calls. We really appreciated that.

The house was cold, and it took us a few days to figure out the thermostat, but there were lots and lots of blankets and even a space heater.

The beds were all soft, but very comfortable. I normally have back pain when sleeping on such a soft mattress, but I didn't have any problems with the beds. The master bedding was a bit worn, threadbare and ripping in places, so I'd encourage the hosts to invest in a new comforter and sheets for the master. However, the bedding sets in all the other rooms were great.

We absolutely loved being so close to the beach. We walked on the beach every morning and every afternoon. The neighborhood is also very nice for walking. Quiet and picturesque - we even met the neighbor and his new puppy!

Our only real complaint with the house was the lack of lighting in the family areas in the evenings. During the day, all of the windows let in beautiful natural light. We brought knitting, crochet, and weaving projects for the trip, and the house gets very dark at night. There are lamps, but they just aren't bright enough for crafting.

All in all we had the best time, and this was one of our favorite properties we've ever stayed in. Thank you so much! We will be back.

Delightful and charming home. 5 minute walk through dunes to expansive beach.

  • 4 of 5

Friendly owner great to work with. Their loved beach house reflected in all details and amenities.

Hall bath nice serving 3 bedrooms. Master bath with quaint tub/shower curtain could be improved with a normal shower. Private backyard and deck special perk. Quiet neighborhood with picturesque vintage homes .

Deep, beautiful beach with few people a surprise.

Enjoyed every moment of beauty, peace and quiet.

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this very comfortable home. The owners were so helpful and accommodating, especially with our last minute request to bring a dog. We had a two year old and a five year old with us and they loved playing in the large great room and in the backyard. The house is close to town and very close to beach access. (Note that there is a bit of a walk through the dunes to get to the beach, however. Our kids did fine with this walk, but my mother who had injured her knee could not do it. Luckily, the house is very close to a spot where you can drive onto the beach. This was so lucky for my mom!) We vacation at the Oregon Coast each summer and we highly recommend staying in this house! Gearhart is a great place to stay. The beach is so quiet. We felt like we had our own private beach. We also enjoyed exploring Fort Stevens State Park and Astoria. We will be back!

Spacious Gearhart beach house

  • 4 of 5

My family and I recently enjoyed a week staying in this spacious house near (but not on) the beach in Gearhart. Older construction home with recent modern upgrades on the main level was the perfect place for my family to relax and have fun. It is situated about a 5 minute walk from the beach, and you get a limited view of the ocean from a few rooms in the house. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. Not much too complain about here; the upstairs and the house in general were not very well sound/noise-insulated as this is an older construction home. The owner was particularly helpful and responsive both before and during our stay. Would recommend this place to a friend.
