It was love at first sight. It is a beach front home, overlooking the estuary and the Pacific Ocean. Add to that the home's historic beauty. We really have never seen anything this unique and beautiful.

Nostalgic and quiet home with all the amenities!
Amazing historic home with all the upgrades; nice appliances, comfy furniture, beautiful dining room, books and games. My favorite part about the house is the giant sunroom overlooking the estuary and pacific. It’s a great place to have a glass of wine and watch the sunset. (I recommend nightly.)
There is a large side yard where you can play croquet, and a short set of stairs access the beach. I also love that this home is on the north side of town where it is quieter and where you see tons of birds and deer too. Downtown is only a mile walk (just the right distance so that you don’t feel guilty about that giant plate of pasta you ate at Nonni’s.) Five stars all around!!!
Our family, ages 22-92 stayed at this lovely house and had a great time. The location is peaceful and the view of the estuary and out to the ocean from the sunroom and back yard is fabulous! Next time we will arrange to have a kayak or paddleboard with us to be able to paddle around the estuary when it is too deep to wade! The beds were very comfortable and the house was able to be cooled easily with the ceiling fans and opening upstair's windows and downstair's front and back door. My 92 year old dad, who uses a walker, was able to navigate the house and stairs with no problem. A grab bar in the shower would be nice. We did get him down to the estuary once but that path was a little challenging for him so he enjoyed the view from up above especially al the sea bird activity. The kitchen is well stocked with a huge refrigerator and a wine cooler. I would definitely stay here again!
Love the sun porch.
The house was charming, well equipped and had lots of cozy places to sit and relax.
Great place to stay.
Our group loved this place. The house was quiet and peaceful. The beach beautiful and private. We would absolutely recommend!
great older home with access to the waterweay/ocean. Lots of history
had a great time, lots of activities (for all ages), only hiccup was in the check in process. The key box code and wifi password did not match the original info from vrbo. did not see the new information on a subsequent e mail, no response from the owner when tried to contact. Finally figured it out after 2 hours
Lovely place for a family with dogs getaway
We enjoyed our stay at this Historic Beach house. How cool that it was built by a Sea Captain!
Working with Jodi/Jack was very easy. The house was so clean!! Even though it's an older home it is very well kept up. Very comfortable. We were a family of five adults , 2 preschoolers and 3 well-behaved dogs. And were able to get along fine at this location.
As others have said, the kitchen has everything you would need. We ate all but one meal for our long weekend at the house.
We loved that their was a sandy beach down at the river/estuary. That was a great place for the kids to play and the dogs to run. We saw people out ski-dooing and kayaking, and raking for clams. Are they cockles?
We loved the mud room entry at the front of the house and the sun porch on the back of the house. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and play games, read books, watch apple tv. (btw the apple tv was a nice addition).
It was a low tide. We went clamming up at Sunset Beach just past Gearhart and also at the razor clam beds by the ocean in front of the house. A short drive to both of those locations. We were happy to bring home some beautiful razor clams. We didn't try raking, but might do that another time.
Two bathrooms - One shower and one bathtub worked out fine for us. The water pressure in the shower is great! Towels, bedding and beach towels all provided.
Area info: It is about a 30 minute walk to the turn-around in Seaside. There is a grocery store about a 10 minute walk on Holladay and 12th. The outlet malls are just on 12th and 101. We walked to all those places.
We would recommend this place.as a great place to stay to enjoy family time at the beach.
The clamming season opens in early fall and generally lasts through early to mid-summer.
Razor clamming is closed on beaches south of Seaside, but is generally open on beaches from Seaside - North to the Columbia River.
The daily Razor Clam limit per person is the first 15 clams
Here in Seaside the seafood is fresh, but there's nothing fresher and more satisfying than catching your own dinner.
September through December are probably the best times to go crabbing, however, Dungeness crab can be caught starting in late July or August through February depending on the weather.
Fishing opportunities on the North Coast are plentiful.
The months of May through September yield the richest prospects.
If you prefer fishing local lakes and streams from your own boat or casting your line from the bank, there are plenty of locations to choose from. In Seaside, Quatat Marine Park and Cartwright Park along the Necanicum River offer boat ramp river access, and at Quatat, you can fish right on the river from the docks. Trout, steelhead and striped bass can all be caught along the Necanicum.
Surfing is an very popular sport on the Oregon Coast. At the Cove in Seaside, surfers can be found year-round, practically all day, every day. Seaside is also home to two surf shops that sell and rent boards, wetsuits, and other accessories.
The North Coast is home to some of the best waterways for kayaking and canoeing. From the open ocean and rivers to the shallow picturesque inlets and bays, there are boating opportunities for all skill levels. Most of the year, kayaks and canoes are available from the local recreation rental shops.
The area in and around Seaside is home to several beautiful public golf courses.
Tennis and other Sports
In Seaside, public tennis courts are located at Broadway Park and Seaside High School. Basketball hoops are located at most of the local parks. Broadway park, part of the Sunset Empire Park & Recreation District, has a skate park, area for baseball & soccer, basketball hoops, playground equipment and indoor public swimming pools.
