Perfect Cottage for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

This was absolutely our favorite VRBO we have ever rented (and we've rented a lot)! The pictures really don't even capture how clean, modern, and well maintained this home is. The location was perfect, we grilled every night and all slept so well. The huge bonus for us was the fenced in yard for our 4 and 6 year olds to run and play. They loved everything in the shed - soccer balls, badminton, volleyballs, beach toys, wagon. It was just perfect. Plus all the toys and games in the house were just so wonderful. That is one thing usually missing for us at a VRBO and it sure made a difference! Thank you so so much, Kathleen!!! We would definitely come back!!!!

Magic in Gearhart!

  • 5 of 5

5 of us visited Gearhart last weekend for a girl's getaway and to celebrate a milestone birthday (50!), we couldn't have been happier with Kathleen's house. It's in a great location, very peaceful and quiet, and just a few minutes of walking gets you to the beach or coffee shop. The interior is laid out beautifully, it's much roomier than you'd expect, and we appreciated all of the great design touches. The yard is huge with French doors to a nice patio, perfect for outdoor meals, drinks at night, star gazing, and coffee in the morning. The beach is also wonderful, very private and quiet compared to other beaches. The 5 of us get away together regularly, we all agreed that Kathleen's house sets the bar for anywhere else we go in the future. Truly magical and we will be back!

We loved our stay in Kathleen's house & Gearhart

  • 5 of 5

Kathleen's house is wonderful, and we'd love to return! The house is open, spacious, sunny, quiet, clean, nicely furnished, and well stocked. Kathleen does a great job communicating beforehand, during, and after your stay, so you feel very welcomed into her home. The backyard is spacious, and provides a nice quiet place to gather outside for breakfast or drinks, and she even provides access to her storage container with outdoor and beach supplies. The house is situated on a very quiet street, and it's a simple walk to the beach and downtown Gearhart. Added bonus is that the house was quite baby friendly, as we were traveling with our 11 month old. Thanks Kathleen for sharing your home with us! We hope to return soon!

Great Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house over a long weekend in January of 2015 with my husband, our two young kids, and my in-laws. It was the perfect little house (and it lives quite a bit bigger than it's actual square-footage)! We had a storm come through the weekend we were in town, so we spent a lot of time indoors - and we never felt overcrowded! The beds were comfortable and the entire house was in beautiful shape. The kitchen was well-stocked and we enjoyed cooking a handful of family meals which we enjoyed eating at the oversized dining table! Gearhart felt like the perfect little town for a mid-winter getaway! Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Great Gearhart Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this house for two years in a row now and plan to come back every year we can! The house is wonderful, and located very close to the beach and all the charming amenities Gearhart has to offer: grocery store bakery,restaurants, shops, etc. There is really no need to move your car while there unless you venture to Cannon Beach, Astoria, etc for a meal or an outing. The house is well equipped and so comfortable - the owneres have gone above and beyond and we feel very much at home here. There is a shed full of outdoor toys, games, and bikes, and the kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment and spices, etc. We will be returning as much as possible and HIGHLY recommend!

The best

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house last summer and can't recommend it highly enough! It is adorable, comfortable, clean, well decorated/furnished and comes with all the extras (cooking basics, games/puzzles, shed full of outdoor toys/games) and it's a short walk to the beach and Gearhart restaurants, grocery and shops. We are planning to rent again this winter for a cozy long weekend and again next Summer. Look no further!
