Land Ho! is a beautiful, modern beach retreat located on the Oregon Coast in quiet Gearhart,
Oregon. Gearhart is a quaint seaside town, reminiscent of Cape Cod, located centrally between
Astoria and Cannon Beach.
With miles of beach to explore and a quaint town to get to know there is no doubt that Gearhart will
find a place in your heart.
We think this is the perfect place for you to call home while you're at the beach! We are close to
the beach and several golf courses in the area.
A comfortable beach atmosphere to call home!
Wanted to tell you how much everyone enjoyed your wonderful home. Three of our kids, with two families, stayed on Chinook and my husband and I, another daughter, and my sister stayed several blocks away. Your home, which was so well-suited to children and families, was the gathering point. Besides being beautiful, well-equipped, and comfortable, the house had plenty of room for adults to be downstairs while kids napped upstairs, space for people to get away for quiet time inside or out, and proximity to the ocean, which was the best playground of all. Thank you from all of us for providing such a lovely space. Have a wonderful summer,
This is the second year we have used this house for our family time at the beach. We all love it, from 4-year-old Violet to 69-year old Gramma O. With two bedrooms upstairs for our two younger families of four and the master bedroom for Grandpa and Gramma O, we fit perfectly. Everyone loves to use the bathtub with jets in the Master Bath and/or the large walk-in shower. It's fun for the younger generation to spy on the adults from the second level through the see-through railing or maybe send paper airplanes down.
For meals we used the gas grill two nights out of three for steak, hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers and corn on the cob. Gramma O especially loved the quality of the furnishings in the kitchen with lovely stoneware dishes, heavy silverware and great quality pots and pans. The kitchen is stocked with numerous spices and other necessities for cooking. The large side-by-side refrigerator and freezer easily held the food we needed for our stay.
The older children loved riding their bikes on the quiet cul-de-sac while the younger ones happened to find friends from another vacationing family to keep them busy at the same time.
We used this house as a base to explore the North Oregon coast and beaches. The location in quiet Gearhart is definitely preferable to the busyness of Seaside or the multitudes of tourists in Cannon Beach.
I'm sure you can tell we are very enthusiastic about Gearhart House. Out thanks to the owner, Amy Haskins, for seeing to our comfort in every way. Oh, did I mention that the house is very kid-friendly.
This is a GREAT house to stay in for your vacation on the Pacific Northwest. Very nice, comfortable and well equipped. I can't say enough how great of a house this is. Great deal for what you get! Local attractions abound, from the Evergreen Air and Space Musuem (Spruce Goose, all sorts of historic aircraft and spacecraft) Tillamook, the Maritime Musuem, all are really close by. And thats not even mentioning Cannon Beach and all the stuff to do around there. Our next trip to this area we will without a doubt stay here again. I give this house my highest recomendation to all.
First off, the owners were great to work with, we literally booked the same day as our arrival due to a short window of oppurtunity. The house is modern and clean, it's in a great location for ex[ploring the north Oregon coast, 5 minutes from three golf courses, fishing etc. the home would easily accomodate two families. We'll be back!
We stayed in this home in late July 2011. As you can tell from the photos, the home is lovely. The kitchen is very well stocked with anything you could possibly need and it is beautifully decorated. The bedrooms are quite large for a rental property and the master bath is amazing. There were thoughtful details like bathrobes and toiletry items as well. The back patio is nicely protected from coastal breezes and a nice spot for lunch. It is a little farther from the beach than we might have preferred, but it would be a perfect ride on bikes!
The town of Gearhart is small and very charming. There aren't a lot of dining options, but the Pacific Way bakery and restaurant are both amazing! It's a pleasant walk to town for either the Pacific Way or the ice cream parlor.
I would definitely recommend the property to friends.
The home exceeded our expectations, the photo's did not do it justice. We felt as if we were staying in someones full time residence........it did not have the feel of a "rental". It is extremely well equipped, very, very clean and well maintained. My wife and I have rented homes at the Oregon coast for the last 10 years and this is our favorite place so far. We have become friends with some of the neighbors and we love the neighborhood itself. The owners have been terrific to deal with in every respect. I would recommend this to anyone without a single reservation.....the Oregon coast is one of our favorite spots, now we have a favorite place to stay when we go!
