PERFECT Family Vacation

We really enjoyed our stay! The house is set up very well for an active family. We really enjoyed the pool table, ping pong and boats to use! We loved the beach area that is walking distance from the house! (we had trouble finding it: go to the end of the road @ stop sign turn right, then take the 1st left. go past the park, the road turns to the right or left go left, on the right side of the road between two houses is a light green sign and a small sign on a wood post that says beach access. the path goes along the cedar split log fence. It's not a difficult walk but there is a few hills that make it harder for the older folks.) We loved all staying in the place being able to cook and eat together. Loved it! Would recommend and probably will return again......................................................................Mel & Cindy D. said...

Fantastic time at this lakefront property

Jun 24, 2017

We had a great time staying at the lake house with our four kids and my parents. The one level house was perfect for my dad who uses a walker and didn't have to navigate stairs too much, and could sit on the back deck and watch the kids fish and paddle around the lake. The kids spent most there time out on the lake even though there were games, pool, ping pong and other fun things to do at the house. The only thing that was a bit of bummer was that we couldn't seem to figure out the dvd system, but there was a great selection of movies to watch......................................................................Anonymous said...

My family had a super pleasant time at this vacation home! It's not just a place to stay overnight. It's a home away from home. It's full of amenities, with boating, fishing, sauna and pool being our favorites. Sitting around the firepit and burning some firewood after dinner added lots of fun to my whole family! Super responsive and helpful host made us feel home quickly.

We brought our grandson here for his 13th birthday with two of his friends. We all had a really wonderful time. There's so many amenities for the kids, they were never bored. Didn't catch enough fish, but they had so much fun in the boats that it didn't seem to matter too much. House is very clean and well organized. Owner very accommodating and easy to deal with. Can't say enough good things about this place!

This house is great! It's so nice to return to after exploring the area and fishing. All furnishings and amenities are in good shape. Really need the extra freezer in the garage for our Salmon, although we didn't catch too many this year. Love all the extras: pool table, table tennis, boats, outside deck and firepit. The house was clean on arrival; no complaints. The landlord/agent is very responsive to questions leading up to the rental time. Now that I remembered my VRBO password, the process is very efficient. Bottom line: we'll be back. This has to be one of the best Northern Oregon rentals not directly on the beach......................................................................Wileen T. said...

Jul 22, 2016

This is our third year coming to this amazing house, and we love it more each year! I really appreciate how clean it is. It's perfect for a large family, our grandkids are 5-11 years old and they can safely be outside playing on their own for hours! Mo is wonderful in providing everything needed, and things you didn't even know you needed, like a pool table, ping pong, lots of games, books and CD's, boats, fishing gear. Last year we needed a refrigerator repair and it was fixed in no time. This year there's a new refrigerator, and the old one is in the garage, which is incredibly helpful for a large family! Mo also checks in during your stay, and once I mentioned we could use a fan and the same day two were delivered! The location of the house is perfect, close to Seaside and Cannon Beach, The Wayfarer Restaurant in Cannon Beach is my favorite, along with the little cafe in Gearhart. If you're thinking of a vacation rental for your family this is the place you want to stay!! Willie T......................................................................Julie K. said...

We had a wonderful time staying in Gearhart in this nice home. We had plenty of space and a place for everyone to sleep. We asked Mo if he had a pack n play for our grandson and since he didn't have one he went out and bought one! He was easy to ask any questions to and eager to help make our stay enjoyable. We all loved the lake, boats and kayaks. Plus our group had a lot of fun playing pool, football and ping pong. As long as our group doesn't get any bigger we will definitely stay here again!.....................................................................Charlene H. said...

We visited this place for Christmas weekend with family & friends. 13 people ( 11 Adults + 2 Kids) slept happily without any problems. It is a beautiful piece of property in a very nice, gated community. All the bedrooms have separate TVs, games, nice beds, etc. and are very comfortable. The location is wonderful too, as it has everything! There are also many other activities all around the house, boating, fishing, volleyball, horseshoes, foosball etc. However, we found the place a little dirty; dirty dishes, etc. We had an awesome time at this vacation getaway. There was 11 of us & we still had room for 3 more people. Very spacious home. The Owner was very pleasant & always available. We had a great time the 3 days we were there. We will def. be going back in summer:).....................................................................spencer b. said...

Close to all the adventure our great Northern Oregon coast can offer. Nice fairly secluded beach access near by. Wild life every day; beaver, elk, deer, ducks, squirrels, raccoon and even a cute rabbit. Lots of games in and out side the house. Very comfortable with a large kitchen and plenty of room for all. Private and quiet area. My family had a good time just hanging out. I would like to suggest a deck rail for safety.

Amazing home on the lake - FUN For ALL!!!

Date of Stay
Aug 28, 2015

Our 5 nights/6 days were plagued by rain and high winds (the full duration of our vacation), we still made the best of it...This was our Family Unity Week, four families uniting as one large family. Although there were lots of outside sports equipment available, we were restricted to indoor activities because of the weather. The guys still went fishing, my son-in-law caught a 4 lbs. catfish, and my older son caught a 5 lbs. big mouth bass, and both our younger sons caught several smaller big mouth bass and about 50 small perches on the catch and release program, they were unable to catch any of the trout that we all saw jumping and splashing everywhere... Mo, my husband would like to know what the secret is to catching the trout at your lake? We loved the wildlife, we saw a heard of about 30 elk one afternoon, had a young 4 point elk in the back yard, he was breath taking, we even watch 7 elk swimming across the lake, kicking up their huffs and splashing across the water. There was a beautiful heron that landed in the lake in front of the home. The second morning we were there we watched a large pair of sea otters swimming in front of the property, and there were lots of deer throughout the gated community..honestly, our experience with the wildlife and your home was so enjoyable for all of us (from our grandkids to ourselves to our adult children). Your home played a huge part in our family unity week. We all loved your home from the moment we opened the door for the first time until the time we had to check out (6 days later). There was ample room for all of us, the pool and ping pong tables were highly used, along with the large variety of movies which came in handy as we were confined to staying inside and out of the weather. My husband and I really appreciated the extra effort that you showed by equipping the home with a roll-away bed. The 10 min. walk to the beach was also fun, your directions were great, and the beach was beautiful. This home is centrally located with a wide variety of fun available and located within just a few miles in any direction. We cooked and ate in the home, the large kitchen is great, several of us were able to cook and work at the same time making meals and cleaning up without feeling any issues of lack of space. The two dinning areas really came in handy with our large group and we were all able to sit to eat our meals at the same time. We all had an amazing time and looking forward to next year's reunion.

Date of Stay

This was a great location. Beaches, shopping and many other attractions are close. It has amenities for everyone. The house is well kept and has entertainment for young and old alike. Also, if you like to fish you can catch some bass, perch and other fish just a few paddle strokes away from the property. Mostly small, but I caught one bass that was 12+ inches. Very fun time at this property, Mo was great, easy to work with and available. Price was reasonable enough. The cleaning fee is a flat rate no matter if you stay 2 nights or 7, understandable and mostly reasonable, however, would've liked to have this based more on the number of nights rather than a flat rate. I don't know if any rentals do this, but it would be nice if they did. Great overall stay. You won't regret it.

My ResponseZack, Nice Catch! A 12” bass, that’s pretty exciting and this is the biggest fish caught and reported to us so far. So, you have the record for summer of 2015 on Sunset Beach. In regard to your comment about the cleaning fee, it needs to be based on size of the property and not number of days. A two bedroom house should cost less to clean than a 4 or 5 bedroom home. Our entire house needs to be cleaned and disinfected on every checkout with no short cuts. It usually takes our cleaning crew of two, 5 hours to clean between checkouts. If one or two bedrooms were used during a stay, then the cleaning fees should be much less, and I totally get it. Thank you for staying at our home and we're looking forward having your family back for a second reunion and you need to defend your record......................................................................Dian H. said...

When we read positive reviews such as yours and the ones before you, it helps us to know that we're on the right track.

We'll be returning to this house for the third year in a row! We've been renting vacation houses for our family for the last 10 years. The amenities, location to beach and numerous activities, not to mention the house itself is, by far, the best house out there for the money! Right after check-out my grandkids are asking me "when are we coming back?" In addition, Mo is wonderful to work with, always checking in to see how things are going and if there's anything we need. If a repair is needed it's done quickly. We ALL absolutely love vacationing here, thanks Mo!

We stayed her for a family reunion and the place slept 12 with easy. It is a beautiful piece of property in a very nice, gated community. All the bedrooms have separate TVs, games, nice beds, etc. and are very comfortable. The location is wonderful too, as it has everything! There are also many other activities all around the house, boating, fishing, volleyball, horseshoes, foosball, Ping-Pong, etc. However, we found the place a little dirty; cobwebs, dirty dishes, dirty exterior (especially off the back deck where you spend a lot of time), stained carpets, dead insects in the pictures, etc. Also, the dishes were a mixed mash of what looks to be yard sale items, not a complete set of anything. Very difficult to cook a full meal for twelve with what they have there. No good mixing bowls, baking dishes, cooking utensils, etc. Also, had to have many repairs completed while we stayed. They were very good and prompt about fixing things, usually only took a day, but it was still a little bit of unexpected hassle. For the price, we expected everything to be in good working order and to also have a "full" functional kitchen as advertised. Also, even though it is a nice piece of property, the grounds were not in great shape and need some sprucing up. Also, the back deck is very nice and large, but there are no handrails on the steps nor any rails on the deck it self, which make it a little dangerous for young and old. Again, we stay at a lot of places, and expect the very best when we pay premium dollars for it. We are a little picky and could have overlooked some of the items mentioned above. However, we feel an honest review only helps the owners provide the best service and facility they can. All in all, a nice place that is perfect for a large group young, old and everything in between....................................................................Jackie L. said...

Fabulous Fourth!
Date of Stay
Jun 30, 2015
This home exceeded our expectations for our Fourth of July getaway. The adults loved the whisper quiet location and water view, and everyone in our party (4 adults, 2 college students and 3 children - ages 6 and 7) was delighted with the wildlife viewing and kayaking. The water (quite warm) was like glass in the morning and evenings, and the small kayak worked beautifully for the children. They were all first-time kayakers, but mastered it on day one. The surprise was that no fireworks were allowed in the development, which was terrific news to us -- and it was for real. We did not hear or see fireworks in the development. So were were able to savor the festivities in full on the Gearhart beach on the night of the Fourth, but we could retreat to our peaceful lakefront house when we'd had enough. We also spent another full day at the beach, which is just minutes way by car or 20-25 minutes away if you want the walk. The house was clean and surprisingly well equipped. The new gas grill worked well, so we used it every day. The owner responded quickly when the microwave wouldn't work, and he resolved the issue promptly. My favorite part was morning coffee on the sunny deck, stretched out on the lawn chair as I enjoyed the lake view and waited for the neighborhood deer to wander by!

Our multi-generational family stayed for a week and everyone from the little kids to the oldest had fun! We used the canoe, fished, roasted marshmallows. The pool table was also a big hit with us. 10 of us stayed comfortably, with plenty of room. We appreciated how so many details of the trip were thought of. The sauna was a great way to relax after fun days sightseeing and visiting all the nearby beaches! Mo is terrific to work with, he checked in with us a few times over the trip just to make sure our trip was great. We will be back for sure, only this time for 2 weeks!!

It was Spring Break, 2015. We were 4 families with kids. Just loved this house. It was clean, spacious, tons of amenities. Just loved it!! Kids were entertained, we did not have to worry about them at all, no complains about getting bored. Whatever you can think of, the house probably has it, and we used/enjoyed a lot of it!!! One think I cannot help to mention that the owner is sooo helpful. I called him pretty late night to reserve the property as I was having problem with credit card problems. He was open and willing to ANY additional need we might have. We reached GearHeart late in the evening, and could not find location properly. Called the owner; he was with me over the phone, with direction and cues until I reached the house. It was absolutely great. I would recommend every one who comes to VRBO to rent properties, just get this house. With lake at the back and ocean few blocks away, close by Costco, HomeDepot, 10 mins away from Seaside and Astoria, this house is at a great location. We are already thinking of renting this property again for July 4th vacation.

A beautiful, spacious, well-maintained lake front house. It came with ample closet/cabinet space for storage in bedrooms/kitchen & lots of linens, towels, toiletries. We, a group of 9 adults & 5 kids, thoroughly enjoyed the centrally located pool table, paddle boat & canoe. Numerous board games & a great movie collection kept the kids occupied :-). We did wish for one additional canoe & felt that the 4th BR with 2 bunks was a bit tight (Could have been set up differently). Also, the floating boat dock was shaky & the TT table/kitchen utensils need tending to. On our last day, we did spend some valuable time cleaning up and washing linen. The owner provided excellent customer service by being reachable round the clock & promptly attended to our needs making sure our stay was comfortable & worthwhile. Overall great place, great value!

This lake house was perfect for our family's summer vacation. Tons of space to spread out and lots of room in closets and kitchen to put things away. The home owner is EXTREMELY responsive and on top of every question and request. We enjoyed using the paddle boat and taking our kiddos for a ride. Everyone that dropped a line in the lake caught a fish! We saw a herd of 10-15 elk upon our immediate entry into the gates! There was a momma deer and her 2 fawns that came to the backyard to visit each day. We spent time in the center of Seaside, Cannon Beach and Astoria. All within short drives. Also very close to Del Ray Beach which was nice because we could pack up the kids in the car and drive onto the beach. Everyone in our group commented on how comfortable they were in the home and how ALL the features in the home made our time so very enjoyable!!

It is not often when things end up being actually better than advertised, this house was one of those situations. The house was clean and all of the amenities were there. In addition, the house was well stocked with linens, towels, kitchen utensils’, with plenty of fridge and freezer space. Would suggest adding a pancake griddle, but we made do with the waffle iron. We had 10 in our party and could have easily had 12 with no one feeling cramped. The house gives you a sense of privacy, but you are within easy driving distance of Seaside, Astoria, and the beach. The way the few issues we encountered were handled by the owner makes me rate this property even higher. One of the TV’s ended up having a problem with its picture. The owner had the cable guy out there the next day making sure the problem was resolved. One of the faucets for a shower became loose and would not turn on. We reported it in the morning and by the afternoon a handyman was there and the faucet was repaired. In addition, Mo was very responsive in making sure everything was exactly as we expected. We are planning on returning to this property next year, as the experience was so positive.

We had a fabulous weekend at the beach house. The house was even better than we expected. Everything was well maintained and it was apparent that the owner takes great care to make sure guests have a nice stay. The house is very spacious and we appreciated the open floor plan. The kitchen had lots of empty cabinets where we could store our food and also a pantry. We haven't seen that in other homes we've rented. The living room furniture is comfortable and we enjoyed sitting and watching the deer roam in the backyard. Our group had a nice BBQ on the spacious deck and we roasted marsh mellows and hotdogs in the fire pit. We went on the lake and it was so pretty with the blooming lilies. Gearhart Beach is a short drive from the house and we saw an elk on the way and a huge flock of pelicans on the shore.

This is a wonderful vacation home. It is even larger than it looks in the pictures, perfect for our group of 10 adults and teens - there was plenty of room for us to all be together and also lots of places to break into smaller groups/get away from the crowd. The centrally located pool table was a huge hit. The house was clean, well maintained and the owner very attentive. The house needed a small repair when we got there and he was in contact with us the whole time and got someone in to fix it within a couple of hours (the night before Thanksgiving!). Towns and beaches are a quick drive away. Definitely recommend this to others......................................................................Anonymous said...

Fantastic!! The picture and listing didn't capture all that this place had - there was so much more! There were plenty of things for the kids to do, when we were not at the beach or sightseeing. The house was very clean and the property was well maintained. The house came with a paddle boat, row boat, ping pong table, pool table, fuzball tables, and board games galore. There was a barbecue on the back and a hammock to lay in. We were only minutes away from the beach and several attractions like: Seaside, Astoria, Canon Beach, and Ecola State Park. We got to see deer every morning as well as other wildlife. The bedrooms were very roomy and it was nice to have the kids staying in bunk beds while the adults stayed in regular beds. I would highly recommend this place for families and large groups like family reunions. We had 10 people and we all fit comfortably. The kitchen was stocked with all of the utensils and cooking ware that you could possibly need. There was a coffee pot and coffee, toaster, microwave, as well as oven and stove to cook on. There were some spices and salt and pepper available for use as well. The three bathrooms were also nice with a large group. I highly recommend this place......................................................................Nicole K. said...

I have only one word: "Perfect"!Date of Stay
Jul 10, 2013

The house is perfect for a big family or a couple of families with kids looking for some fun times. The house has all you could ever need and then some... This house is a paradise for kids and everyone knows that happy, entertained kids make for happy and relaxed parents :) The kids were so excited to see that there were TVs in each bedrooms, but they ended up having so much fun with all the games, the boats, the fire pit to make some s'more and the beach less then 10 min away by foot that they ended up not watching TV once during the whole stay. Highly recommend this house. Enjoy!

We had 7 adults and 1 child. We LOVED the house and the lake. It was fun to take the canoe and boats out into the water. The house was super clean and the layout is nice and open. Perfect for our group who wanted to do different things, but still be together. The pool table was a big hit. The local beach was amazing! We had a blast. Thank you!

The house had all we needed. The location was stellar. The weather was unusually sunny! Thanks for a great week. The description of the house was accurate and the amenities sufficient for our family reunion. I would recommend this property to a friend. The beach, the paddle boat...all were as promised!.....................................................................Emily B. said...

This house had it all! There was plenty for any aged kids. Our fifteen year old played ping pong until midnight! Great beach access just a seven minute drive away. Kitchen had all the amenities and thank you to all the prior guest who left spices and condiments. The lake was a beautiful view and it was so cool that the bbq had an unlimited gas supply. We did have a hard time figuring out how to use the tv/dvd because someone had unplugged the chords. The owner of the house is very reasonable and will work with you to make your stay the best. Thanks Mo for lending us your home, we had a great family vacation.

We rented the house for 2 purposes - for a fun family stay for 3 days (with 5 kids ages 10-16), and then for 2 days for my Portland to Coast team (10 women) to have a place to rest and relax after we completed the race. It was perfect! The beds were comfortable, the area is quiet and peaceful...the lake is a lot of fun to canoe or paddle boat. We played pool and ping-pong, and watched movies, and sat in the sauna to relax. We all had a wonderful time!

We had a small glitch with getting the keys, but that was taken care of quickly by the property manager. The home is geared towards family with lots of fun things to do. The home is on a lake and has a canoe and paddle boat. We really enjoyed using them. The views from the deck were spectacular! We would love to stay there again in the future.

A lake the beach AND ping pong?!?
Date of Stay
Jun 7, 2012
Our group of three families with a total of four little kids in tow had a fantastic time here. Initially I thought the lake would be only a minor diversion, but we ended up spending a lot of time on it in the boats provided. The beach is either a walk or a short drive away (the walk is a bit far for four year olds). In this part of Oregon you can drive on the beach though, which helps guarantee you an exclusive spot. The kitchen and large open family room make for a very nice gathering area. Playing foosball and ping-pong and pool is also nice (once the kids go to bed). We would definitely return to this house for a future beach stay, hopefully for a few days longer this time :)

A Great Location with a House Full of Entertainment

Date of Stay
May 24, 2012

As a large party (adults & teenagers), we found the property to be exactly what we were looking for. The house was clean, the owner professional, and the countless available activities inside and out were awesome. It's clear that the owner filled the house with entertainment for all ages. We especially appreciated the sauna, the well stocked kitchen, and the two large dinning tables that were perfect for board games. We highly recommend this property and its perfect location on a private lake. Re: the previous review, the owner has simple rules to follow which include tying up the boats (it was a little breezy) and removing shoes at the front door. If these rules are followed, you will not have any issues and just as our security deposit (in-full) was refunded, your shall be as well. Thanks Mo for a wonderful stay.

The house is lovely and clean, the location is great, the owner seemed professional. The problems started when we checked out. I was held responsible for the boats for several days after we checked out, receiving a call 3 days later saying one of the boats was gone. The house has off-white carpeting, not a good idea for a vacation home that advertises to families. The beach is difficult to get to-it's not a short walk! In addition to the non-refundable cleaning deposit I had already paid, the owner took over half of the refundable security deposit when we checked out. I would not recommend this rental to friends or family.

My ResponseWithin the short time that we have placed our house for rental we have many good reviews. It is unfortunate that when a guest does not follow the simple rental agreement, it results in an unjust bad review now a days. We care about our house and are very attentive owners. We have made every effort to fill our house with lots of activities for families to have fun and enjoy the Oregon coast. We have a no shoes policy in the house as not to track sand and dirt. There are six pathways to the beach, from our house the closest one is about a 10-15 minute leisurely walk. The non-refundable cleaning deposit is standard for all rental properties in the area (our cleaning crew inspects and cleans thoroughly before and after each guest). In this case, more than half of the refundable security deposit were returned in less than 7 days, the rest went towards extra cleaning(food dye), carpet cleaning, booking fee(credit card fee from website), and retrieving the boat that was found across the lake. Due to occasional high winds at Oregon coast we have the boats secured. We ask our guests to leave the house in the same condition as when they checked in.

Wow we saw so many deer and elk. The lake was lots of fun and I love the ocean, this place is nothing like Peugent Sound. Love, Jack from Seattle. Had a lot of fun on the lake using the canoe and the dock. Ben You have a beautiful place here, the best of 2 worlds, we paddleed the canoe all of the way to the bridge and back. Wish we had had a little more sunshine! Thank you, Deanne Had fun playing on the dock and riding down the beach. This is perfect playing house. Thanks for letting us stay. Alex B. I like the pool and ping pong. Everything about the lake & I like my bed. P.S. me and my aunt went canoeing to the bridge. Annie B. Thank you so much for allowing us to rent this house. I loved the location on the lake and how it was a bike ride away from the beach. i loved the floating dock! It was so much fun to jump off of. i loved being able to take the canoe out and tour the lake. The house was well equiped with everything to make this vacation great. The pool table was great for small games. The ping pong table was perfect for a family ping pong tournament!(which I won). Again thank you so much for allowing us to rent this house.
