“Wonderful time”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2013

Me and my family had a great time at the coast and at the house. The beds were great and the kids enjoy the watch the ocean from the deck. I would rental again for sure. + the owner are so nice. One of the thing we really didn't enjoy is the parking by the garage. It was crazy. Another then that it was great and would came again.

Owner's reply: Luz, we were very happy to have you and your family at the Shearwaterhouse. Rob and I are very glad that you had a good stay, and we would love to welcome back again. I agree, the driveway is steep - and we do have space for a car to park at the top side of the house, I hope you took advantage of that? We also have wheel chocks available in the driveway parking area below. The house sits on a little hill, which is what gives us such a magnificent, panoramic view of the ocean. Since we are just a block from the ocean, we feel fortunate to have such a fabulous view!

“Nice beach house to rent for muti-family vacation”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2012

House was clean and welled stocked with amenities. It was close to beach where we could walk with kids. The property has an amazing view as it's located on a higher ground. Deck is large and perfect for BBQ. The only downside was that there were no backyard where kids could hand around. They could either only be inside or out on a deck where we did not feel safe for them. We have a great time there and will recommend this property to other people.

“nice place to stay. great owners.”

We stayed 4 nights at the Shearwater house and had a wonderful time. It is located just a short walk from the beach and has great views. The homeowners are super friendly and easy to work with. We had zero issues.

“family friendly layout”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2012

Our stay at this beach house was better than expected. The homes views are better than pictures posted. We felt very comfortable as soon as we walked in. The house was very kid friendly. The weekend we went it was too cold and windy to enjoy the beach. Luckily the house had such good views of the ocean throughout, hot tub, and location that we had plenty of fun sitting out on the deck. All the beds were comfortable to sleep in. The location was great, near the casino, beach, and grocery stores. The kitchen had more than enough plates and kitchen supplies for our party of 9. The layout worked out very well for us. We let the kids take over the downstairs, while the adults stayed up later to enjoy games, cocktails and conversations in the open living room dining room layout. We were not able to find clear public beach access to the home. Many entrances looked private. We did drive down once and the second time we walked around and figured it out. Debi was very flexible and easy to work with. This family friendly house definitely was one of the reasons we had such a good time on our trip.

Owner's reply: We are delighted that you and your group enjoyed your stay, and that the house was good for your needs. There is public beach access, but the county does not post it on Logan Road. The way to know is that there are large posts on either side of a path that go down to the beach. Ours it at the bottom of our road and south one house, just a block's walk. Once down on the beach, most of the beach access points are numbered, to help you identify your entry point. Thanks for help with clarification - I will add this to our information packet! Please come again - and bring the kids: we are turning that bottom bedroom into an undersea garden theme. Debi

“Great place, great price, great time!”

We rented this house for our 3rd annual girls beach trip. We had 12 ladies and this house was perfect. The deck and view is incredible. We'll be back again next year.

“Shearwater, shear heaven”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2011

We spent six wonderful days here! Lots to do between the hot tub, pool, ping pong, air hockey, site-seeing, beach walking, etc. It was great and worth the money. The kitchen was well stocked and furniture very comfortable. Good selection of movies too. Every night two raccoons which we nicknamed Rocky and Rita came around to receive their snacks. It was a great place to rent. We highly recommend it.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

I stayed at this lovely guest house over the Thanksgiving weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the view, the perfect location, the quiet and the deer! The place has everything I needed to have a great time and the king bed was super comfy, perfect at the end of the day to lie back and relax with a book and a view of the ocean. The beach access is so close yet there is a wonderful feel of privacy in the area. This is one of the best places I've stayed on the Oregon Coast and I can't believe the price is so reasonable. Kalee Portland, OR

Thanksgiving weekend 2009. It was fun being the 'first renters'. Family & friends coming and going, great visit, fun time-- jig-saw puzzles, beach walks, music, hot tub. Traded cooking lessons: creme brulle, home-made bread, bananas foster, eggs benedict. Enjoyed 3 deer 'mowing' the lawn. Dynamic ocean, white water halfway to horizon with BIG rollers, then pure blue sky and sunshine on last day. Good time to give thanks! Dad

We stayed for a week and just loved it! The deck was beautiful to sit on and watch the stormy sea. The house had everything we needed. The reunion with our old college friends was fun and we even did night time beach croquet with glow-in-the-dark wickets and balls. It was a blast!

Thank you very much for letting us stay in your lovely house. Beautiful couple of days on the coast for a golf trip. Sunny, blue sky, days with almost no wind and warm even in February.

The views from the deck are amazing and the hot tub was wonderful after 27 holes of golf. Enjoyed a relaxing evening with friends and a late night walk on the beach.

GUEST HOUSE: What a cozy little place! The view is fantastic...can't wait till the hot tub!! That will perfect the view. We look forward to returning!

GUEST HOUSE: Had a fantastic 16th anniversary weekend. Weather was clear, warm and no wind. Who would have thought it was February! After our 8 mile walk on the sand we were happy to have the hot tub when we got back. Even more happy that it has a privacy screen! My wife and I both said that this was one of our best anniversaries!

Shearwaterhouse: First weekend at the new house! It's absolutely beautiful. Lots of fun bonding with family & friends. It was a great baby-first beach trip!

What an amazing weekend! 50-60's nearly every day...sunshine and huge waves. The new house is great. Thanks for making this a trip to remember.

I have never had so much fun or laughed so hard as I did this weekend playing charades with the big stumper being 'wonder bra'. The weather was beautiful, the company amazing and we only got stuck in one downpour. What else can you ask for?

Shearwaterhouse: We've had the most wonderful 3 days here at Shearwater house. Celebrating my daughter's 30th birthday has been nonstop fun, laughter, delicious food & great booze. We had 10 minutes of rain total for 3 days. The sky was blue, the stars were out, hardly needed heat on in the house. Everyone has loved this lovely home and our comfort was met. Our friends who stayed in the Guest House loved it and enjoyed the little hot tub.

The kitchen is fully stocked - wonderful to cook with an amazing view. The guys cooked oysters on the grill, the hot tub was a hit. Sat in the chairs on the deck, end of Feb. Amazing weather, we are grateful for. We'll be back!

Shearwaterhouse: What an amnazing weekend. Weather was perfect as well as the company. We are here to celebrate our daughter-in-law's birthday. Thank you for sharing your beach house, it totally accommodated all our needs. We live in Eastern Washington so this is a total change for us, very delightful!

GUEST HOUSE: We had such an amazing weekend here! We came from Portland and stopped at Spirit Mt. Casino then came to check out the house. It was awesome having the beach within walking distance. The hot tub was perfect size for the two of us and felt great after walking on the beach. On one of our beach excursions we found an unopened bottle of Smirnoff which we thought was hilarious, and on our way back to the house, we saw 3 deer! So cool! Went to visit the Tillamook Cheese Factory and hit up Chinook Winds Casino both nights. This house is cozy and we had an incredible time staying here! Thank you so much.

Shearwaterhouse: Our stay was awesome! Your house is beautiful! wonderful thoughts went into putting it all together.

March 2010: GUEST HOUSE - Wonderful time... Nothing like a coastal storm and breath taking view to re-new the soul! Binnie & Maria

March 2010: GUEST HOUSE - This is a spectacular place to stay. We love the view - especially from the hot tub. We've already told three people about this place. It's very comfortable and in a great location! Six deer love this location too. It was awesome watching them eat the lawn (the neighbor's lawn). We just sat on the deck with our beverages and enjoyed the experience. We'll be back! Steven & LaVeta

March 2010 - GUEST HOUSE - We had a lovely weekend in spite of the hot tub being a bit delayed! You have created a warm and cozy retreat & we would love to return, hopefully sooner than later! Thank you for opening up your home and for making our stay at the Coast a memorable one. Theresa & Jeff

April 2010 - GUEST HOUSE - This place is amazing, very comfortable and relaxing, couldn't ask for a better view of the ocean.

GUEST HOUSE/ROMANCE BY THE SEA: What a great place. It is as good as promised and then some. Perfect for a weekend away from the worries and tasks of everyday life.

The hot tub is out of this world, especially in the cold wind and rain after getting soaked walking on the beach. We will definitely be back. Often. October 2010

Thank you for providing us with the opportunities to get together and to make memories none will forget. September, 2010

Thank you so much for allowing us to share your wonderful home. The house was perfect for our needs and the view was simply amazing!
