Oceanfront, dog-friendly getaway w/ cozy wood-burning fireplace

Let coastal breezes and the hypnotic sound of waves crashing in the distance guide you to tranquility in this impeccable one-bedroom Gearhart vacation rental, featuring a cozy wood-burning fireplace, a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, plush furniture, two flat screen TVs and, best of all, beach access just steps from your backyard!

This oceanfront condo is conveniently located within easy walking distance of the beach and the Gearhart Golf Links, so come prepared for a fun weekend with both surf and turf options! There's a McMenamin's pub just across the street, though you could also head into town (a simple one-mile drive to Highway 101) for dining options ranging from Chinese food to Tex-Mex and more.

As you pull up to the home, you’ll notice it’s behind a fenced area that contains a patio space with a table seating four and two colorful Adirondack chairs where you can sit and chat with friends. Enjoy crisp coastal air and occasional briney breezes as you get the weekend kicked off with some barbecuing on your gas grill, provided here on the patio.

The home itself is appointed with beach and maritime touches throughout: Wood panels reminiscent of a ship’s hull make up the ceiling, framed paintings showing ocean vistas and coastal landscapes hang on the walls, and the light colors chosen for the furnishings reflect a casual beach house vibe.

Head through the sea-blue front door and peer down the hallway for your first view of the spacious interior. Just around the corner to your right lies the bedroom with a plush king-size bed atop a black wooden platform. Lay down on the bed to experience the supreme comfort of high thread count sheets and oversized pillows (we won’t blame you if you don’t want to get up!).

On both sides of the bed sit modern lamps atop black wood nightstands and, with a large bay window behind the headrest, offer plenty of light in the room. In front of the bed, in the corner of the room, are one of two flatscreen TVs and an electric fireplace that goes on with a switch, so kick off your shoes and warm your feet by the fire!

Just down the hall from the bedroom is a full bathroom with plenty of extra towels, so grab a few and go enjoy the beach! Of course, you’ll want to relax after a full day spent hunting for shells and playing in tide pools on the beach, so come home to a back patio that offers seating on a bench or in more colorful Adirondack chairs, which are perfect for lounging as you gaze out over the huge green backyard and the beach just beyond.

Whether it’s time for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, all meals can be made just inside from the back patio in the well-appointed kitchen. The kitchen’s open floor plan allows for space to cook while. The living room is perfect for reading, watching cable TV or movies on the DVD player, and lounging around on the plush sofabed couch or cloth recliner. There's also a wood-burning fireplace for extra ambiance!

Though we do think turning off technology makes it easier to appreciate the meditative qualities of the Northern Oregon Coast, don’t worry about leaving Internet back home - WiFi is included. Plus, you can watch whatever you're in the mood for with Netflix streaming on the TV. You're also welcome to bring one dog (of up to 50 pounds) with you, though please note a nightly fee applies.

Take in the gorgeous scenery and stunning coastal vistas at the Gearhart Ocean State Park, which is directly to the south. Or head three miles down the road to the bustling yet quaint town of Seaside for great shopping, dining, and entertainment - like the fun child-friendly Seaside Aquarium!

Beachcombing, golfing, wildlife viewing, watching a spectacular sunset, or just relaxing - activities abound at this Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental. So book now for a weekend escape you won’t soon forget!

*Please note that there is no smoking in, or around the unit, thank you.

The view
Kerry M. Oct 2019
Nice condo with almost every comfort of home. The condo is set back from the ocean over a dune but you can still see the water and it is only a few min walk to the beach. There is another condo complex in front of the Surfside but it is to the south enough that once you get used to the fact that it’s there it doesn’t negatively affect your view. The bed was very comfortable. Good kitchen supplies. Definitely need a coat rack ! We saw the elk on the dunes on one of our beach walks! We will be back!
Manager response:
Thank you for your review! We will bring your comments about the coat rack to the attention of the local staff. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
Kevin H. Sep 2019
Wasn’t too sure about the location when we booked the place, but it turned out to be the perfect choice! We both loved the condo, the view and the peace and quiet! Everything we needed was provided. Very clean, comfortable and charming! As an added bonus, the Clatsop elk herd hung out around the place for a couple of days! We will definitely be back and we would recommend this unit to anyone!
Nicholas M. Sep 2019
We loved this rental. Clean, cozy, and has direct/quick beach access. The perfect size for 2 people and a pup. And the bed is very comfortable!! We would highly recommend staying here.
Cindy W. Aug 2019
This is a small but lovely condo, freshly updated, very nicely decorated, fully stocked, clean and with all the comforts of home. The location is perfect with an ocean view and the sound of crashing waves. It's quiet and perfect for a couple and their dog or just one. I'll absolutely go back again! Thank you for an amazing stay in your condo by the sea!
Pat P. Aug 2019
This is a lovely little condo in a quiet, peaceful setting. The bed was really comfortable and it had everything we needed in the kitchen. A big bonus was that herds of elk meandered past in the morning and evening on a few of the days that we were there. We booked it because it is pet friendly but ended up not taking our dog. I was really glad we didn’t because they are not allowed to be left alone in the unit. I had planned to leave him there for a few hours while we went to town (he’s very well behaved and doesn’t bark much).
Carla R. Jul 2019
Perfect for us with our dog. Great sunsets and walking access to the beach plus within 10 minutes drive/bike to most of Seaside.
Benjiman W. Jun 2019
We’ve had a couple great stays here now - it’s always spotless, comfortable, and the ocean view is a real treat. You can walk straight through the backyard to the beach in less than 5 mins. Highly recommended!
Denise M. Jun 2019
The unit has such a relaxing peaceful view of the dunes and ocean. It's a short walk over the dune and you are on the beach and can walk for miles. The condo is beautifully decorated and has everything that you would need. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need to cook a meal. Bed was very comfortable.
Bert R. Jun 2019
Wonderful location, well equipped, comfortable. Beautiful beachfront setting.
Mikel M. May 2019
I loved walking out to the beach in the morning with a cup of coffee. My corgi loved the beach. The location made a great base to explore Astoria, Seaside, and Cannon Beach from. And I loved being able to walk up to McMenamins for a tasty beverage!
Lorri K. May 2019
The attention to details was much appreciated! So many nice upgrades, very comfortable bed, everything in the kitchen you would want and overall so clean and well cared for. The view out to the water was so peaceful. We arrived stressed and left very mellow and relaxed! thank you!
Ginger R. Apr 2019
My husband and I stayed during Spring Break. It was amazing!!! We were the ONLY ones there. We found over 100 sand dollars, saw a heard of over 50 elk at our front door, and enjoyed a fire every evening. We will be staying here again and can’t wait!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND these accommodations.
Kerry N. Feb 2019
We've stayed at this lovely condo multiple times and it's one of our favorite places on the coast. Even on cloudy days, the space is filled with light thanks to a skylight and wall of windows. It's small, but has all you need. The kitchen is beautifully remodeled and great to cook in. There's a splashy TV for movie watching, but also a stylish little sectional by the windows for reading. Bonus: It's dog friendly! We did notice signs about keeping your dog leashed all around the property (excluding the beach) which we did to ensure the space can stay dog friendly.
Robin R. Feb 2019
Everything about this place is exceptional! it's so peaceful and beautiful you spend your mornings looking at the waves with a cup of coffee, or your evenings with a glass of wine and a burning fire. The town is quaint and walkable, great food everywhere with friendly people. Nothing was missed in the details in this little home .we didn't even have to turn on the TV we just spent our days reading books and and talking I would remain recommend this place highly to anyone wanting an amazing vacation BTW the mattress was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on I would do it again and I'm already planning in that my next trip back.
Steve S. Jan 2019
I had the true pleasure of staying at this picture perfect condo for Christmas. The ocean is steps from the front door and the sunsets were spectacular. It was hard not to just watch the waves but the extremely well appointed condo made the nights with a warm cozy fire all the better. It was just me and my dog and I can’t thank the owner enough for letting me stay. Not to mention, it was spotless, great job Vacasa!
Molly M. Nov 2018
The asthetic of the home was warm and cozy. Exposed brick walls and wood fireplace with a cape cod feel. An espresso machine and easy to use kitchen facilities and TV. Loved the interior designer tough of the faux working fireplace in the bedroom which continued the ambience of our stay at the beach. This unit shares a front patio with the one next door so if your vacationing with another couple or grandparents with a couple kids, this place is ideal. You can cook and entertain family, while watching the changing tides at the beach.
Janet M. Nov 2018
The condo is tastefully decorated and updated. Very comfortable! Love the fireplaces! Of course being able to walk out the patio right across the dunes to the beach is awesome! Very quiet and serene place. The condo is well stocked. The only hassle was with vacasa. We had to fax our signature on the agreement 2x, call 2x and email 2x until they finally okayed us to stay there. We would totally come back!! We dined at the local Pacific City Cafe. Wow!! EVERYTHING about our experience was stellar!
Susan M. Oct 2018
What a great and quiet location! The place was very clean and well stocked. When we arrived the shower light was out but the owner quickly replaced it. A note to housekeeping: I smelled rotten food around the kitchen sink and couldn't figure where it was coming from. The garbage can was empty. After noticing the garbage disposal I ran the water and turned it on. Sure enough there was debris in it and I poured some soap in the sink while running and it was all cleared away. Great location and walk distance to some great restaurants. We ate at McMenamins and also Pacific Way. The bed was much too hard for us but other than that, our week long stay was fabulous. Thanks for a great vacation!
Sheri L. Jul 2018
Location was great and really quiet. Condo was small but perfect for a Couple and their dog. We woke up to a herd of Elk (62) grazing in the grass, some of which were only 40 feet from glass door.

Owner was a true Professional by having everything labeled and a warning about a guy who lives 2 doors down who doesn't like having rentals there or dogs. We even caught him looking for dog poop in grassy area by our door, but we took our dog out to the weed area to do business and always had him on a leash. Everything was in good condition and he had a space heater and a fan in closet for backup needs.

There was only a couple minor things...one, the bed is super hard. I like a firmer bed, but this was too hard. Pillows were too soft, but luckily I brought my own. Someone put dirty pans ( food on them) back in cabinets, but I had towels, dish soap, and a new scotchbrite to scrub the 3 I needed. I highly recommend getting a new cookie sheet pan. Chair was really creaking, but sofa was super comfy.

I would definitely stay here again. I wish the renter in 203 would have followed the rules and not been playing his guitar into late hours. (Hint: add this to your rules).

Slightly expensive in our opinion, but we had a great experience with this rental!
Manager response:
We have discussed the dirty dishes with housekeeping and advised the owner of the other suggestions. Thank you!
Jacob O. Jul 2018
This condo was perfect for my wife and I spending our anniversary down on the Oregon coast with our dog. We met the owner and he was very friendly. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because booking through Vacasa was the most difficult and inconvenient process I have ever experienced renting a property. Other than that we had a great time and the little town of Gearhart is very charming!
Shayla M. Jun 2018
My sister and I waited until the last minute to find a place and couldn't find anything in Cannon Beach, where we normally stay. I was unsure about paying this amount of money to stay in area neither of us were familiar with but it was a great place. Very clean, fully stocked kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. We loved that her dog was welcomed with treats, a bed, bowl, and other thoughtful things.
Nancy E. May 2018
I keep returning to this unit. I love the location. Close to where you want to go, yet very quiet when you stay put. Comfortable and clean.
Rogene M. Apr 2018
loved it
Craig S. Apr 2018
Very cute and clean condo. Comfortable and fully furnished with modern conveniences. Good instructions and property management. Only complaint was neighboring condo was conducting construction during Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning...pounding away. Otherwise, good rental and well stocked.
Elizabeth P. Apr 2018
My friend and I chose this property because of the wood-burning fireplace, the fact there's an espresso maker, and its proximity to the beach, on top of how gorgeous it looks in the photos. We were pleased to find it just as beautiful (if not more so!) in person.

The kitchen is well-stocked, the whole place is spacious but cozy for two, and we simply loved it. It's within easy walking distance of a McMenamin's, so when we didn't feel like cooking, we went there for drinks and dinner.

The only piece of information I remember lacking from the description was a picture of the shower. Given how the bathroom is laid out, the initial impression is that it would be narrow -- but it's not, it's a good-sized shower stall! ... and I'm not small. :-) Also: good water pressure!

It's a fantastic property that's easy to get to and hard to leave. I'm already trying to figure out when I can go back!
Lance Z. Mar 2018
The unusually cold temperatures for the first part of the Spring Break at the Oregon Coast did not prevent our family from having a wonderful time. The accommodations are just right for Mom & Dad and two kids. We had one day that was a break in the rain and mist that gave us a full day on the beach. And then as the weather would have it, on our last day it turned out to be a beautiful day. Probably the only thing I would say to improve might be the cooking utensils; pots pans, spatulas etc... But certainly not a kill-joy , we had a great time. would love to come back in the summer .
Rogene M. Mar 2018
how could you not
Elizabeth A. Mar 2018
The condo was really nice very well equipped and the weather was fantastic for us. Lots of sand dollars on the beach in Gearhart.
Paige Y. Jan 2018
Super cute and cozy place! You need to hold the toilet knob down a little longer than average and it won’t go down easily if there is another water source running. You won’t use the lock box(didn’t work) you will use the code on the door knob (second door after the blue door). Click the logo button after the four digits and twist the lock to enter. We had a bit of confusion from the directions and had to call lol. Overall great little getaway! Perfect for a couple, and super close to the beach.
Kerry N. Jan 2018
Very well-maintained one-bedroom that's perfect for a couple (or single) looking for a weekend at the beach. Easy access to the beach and a great spot for a dog. The complex is quiet and people we encountered were friendly and often had dogs too. A few condo highlights---fireplace(s) and a gorgeous, well-stocked kitchen that makes cooking a pleasure.
Sharon P. Dec 2017
The unit needs to address the “toilet” issue.
Also, you need to know that you share a patio with the neighbor unit. Really only an issue if the weather good.
It is a small cozy condo that has a great view and Gearhart is a great little town.
Paula M. Nov 2017
We escaped to Gearhart for the Thanksgiving holiday and were very happy with our choice. The condo provides immediate access to the beach and has all of the comforts needed for a retreat from the everyday.
DeVonda S. Sep 2017
Gearhart is just lovely! The condo is perfect for couples or single visitors. Very peaceful and quiet. Great views and modern kitchen, too.
Janna U. Sep 2017
Dogs welcome!!!
Betty P. Sep 2017
Very nice condo in a quiet area. Loved Gearhart, away from all the noise and distractions of Seaside.
Katharine N. Sep 2017
This condo was just the perfect size for our 2 person + small dog getaway. It had everything we needed, was quiet, cozy, and literally over the dune to the beach. We look forward to staying here again!
Shelley K. Aug 2017
The rental is steps from the beach and is an easy walk to the water for a stroll.
We found the condo well equipped but laundry facilities would have made it even better.
Tim W. Jul 2017
The location was private, well kept, and amazing.
Shirley J. Jul 2017
Wonderful 4th of July weekend in Gearhart! Amazing views and access to beach.
Nicole J. Jun 2017
We will definitely stay here again. This cute little condo looked just like the pictures and we absolutely loved the location. It's super close to the beach, McMenamins is across the street, there's an adorable little "downtown" within walking distance that has a grill, bakery, and a home decor/nursery store. Seaside is less than 5 minutes away if you're looking for more restaurants and shopping. The management company was easy to work with and responsive. We even got to meet the owners on our stay and they were super friendly, too. We highly recommend this place and will be back.
Mollie B. Jun 2017
We hope we didn't disturb any of the residents.
We bought out grand children and flew kites in the yard.
I didn't realize some of the residents live there year round.
Thank you.
Mollie
Kimberly S. May 2017
Exceptional on all fronts! Cozy, tastefully decorated, beautiful beach...A lovely experience! Don't hestitate on this one.
Lainie S. May 2017
Absolutely beautiful :)
Gary & Krista H. May 2017
We stumbled upon your site while searching for a condo to rent for our anniversary, and we are so happy that we did!
Thank you for providing a beautifully furnished (and updated!) condo. We had a wonderfully relaxing anniversary trip. We can not wait to come back again!

And thank you to the owner that stopped by to clean the windows after a storm blew through (unnecessary but very thoughtful!!!)
Casey S. Apr 2017
the location is beautiful, and this property owner has thought of just about everything to make you comfortable. Lots of linens, pillows, towels, and the kitchen had every gadget and small appliance I could imagine! Loved our brief stay here, but one thing to note is that in order to get to the front door to input the entry code, you need to walk THROUGH the blue door. We will be returning!
Catherine C. Apr 2017
Great location! We loved being right on the beach! We also loved how modern and clean this place was.
Peter K. Mar 2017
see abouve
Michael M. Nov 2016
Great location, wonderful unit with a comfy master and well appointed kitchen. Perfect for a weekend stay!
Kenneth B. Nov 2016
Great place with a real fireplace. You can watch the surf break from the chair in the living room. Very good storm watching.

The place is small, good for a couple, but you have to go off site to do laundry which is time consuming. The waves are audible at night, which made for easy sleeping for both of us. Nice beach and the dunes are right there where you can walk on top of them and see a long stretch of the coast.
Richard R. Sep 2016
my wife and I really liked this place. it was quiet, just far enough from the beach ( 800' or so ) you don't get all the noise from the people or wondering eyes onto the property. its a little expensive but it helps keeping the party crowd away
Robin S. Aug 2016
We were a bit surprised by the economy of space but it worked out for our short stay. It is nicely equipped and comfortable. It's a bit different sharing both the front patio (with one other unit) and the back deck is wide open. Nice to have parking right in front of the unit. We also liked not having people walking on your heads. Relatively quiet. You can watch the waves from the unit and the back patio.
Stacey K. Aug 2016
Wonderful visit! Great place for 2 adults and two teens.
Julia A. Aug 2016
Very clean, updated. Nice location. No crowds in summertime like Canon or Lincoln. Loved our stay. Bed was SUPER comfortable too
Arun M. Jul 2016
Great place to stay for a small family although a bit expensive if you want to stay for just a couple of days during the weekends.
Mike P. Jul 2016
Very clean and comfortable condo. Close to the ocean, golfing and shopping in Seaside.
Gina T. Jun 2016
Lovely view and nice condo.
Carol N. Jun 2016
BEAUTIFUL place, in a great location! A bit pricey for its size, but we booked last minute. Also, we could not find sheets for the pull out sofa, even though we indicated 4 people.
Steven H. Apr 2016
Perfect for a couple or solo. Very clean! Location is excellent. Loved the shower and the comfortable bed!
Alisa D. Apr 2016
Great getaway spot, perfect for a couple. Ocean views, updated kitchen and walking distance to local restaurants.
Tanya T. Mar 2016
The cottage was beautiful. The owner when out of his way to make sure I had everything I needed to make my stay comfortable.
Colin C. Feb 2016
Nice clean condo. Walk to beach and golf course. If you want a small space for a couple this is a good one.
Catherine C. Feb 2016
Best rental location in Gearhart. The unit was spotless, comfortable and very well equipped. We will stay here again.
Jim F. Feb 2016
Clean, quiet, on the beach, close to Safeway and shops in Seaside. Firm, comfortable bed. Excellent, deep soup bowls.
Chris F. Jan 2016
Great location. Unit was clean, modern & accommodating to our dog. Everything went as advertised. No problems. Thanks! cf
Paul W. Jan 2016
Found this place and so glad we reserved it for our trip to Gearhart this year. We were in Gearhart 2 years ago but in a much larger house. This property has a fantastic view of the beach as well as short walking distance to the beach. Updated appliances and nicely furnished, we fell in love with it immediately and enjoyed it for the week we were there. Yes we will come back.
Linda C. Sep 2015
Great location, steps from the beach and miles of beach to walk
Rebecca F. Sep 2015
This condo is great. The view is amazing and it is just a short walk to the beach. The condo is cozy and has every amenity needed for a great stay. We absolutely plan on staying again.
Kelley A. Aug 2015
We've stayed at several rentals in Gearhart and this is my favorite. The location is unbeatable. Just a short walk to the beach and across the street from a McMenamin's. Within walking distance is our favorite bakery & restaurant - Pacific Way Cafe.
The condo is small but newly renovated and beautiful. Love the simple beach theme. The bedroom has a comfy king bed and fireplace. The kitchen is well stocked with small appliances and cooking utensils. My 7 year old said the sofa bed was great and the dog gave the doggie amenities 4 paws up .
I highly recommend this property for a small family or couple looking for a romantic getaway.
Megan E. Aug 2015
I was only in town for two nights, and after finding the home so comfortable, I really wish we had allotted more time to stay and enjoy it. Everything was perfect - the location, the setup, the amount of space, and having Netflix was nice for the few windy nights we had. It was really wonderful to have such a short walk to the beach from out patio and we were surprised to watch the deer at night in the grass. I highly recommend this condo, and I hope to come back and stay longer next time!
Judith D. Aug 2015
This condo in Gearhart, sits at the edge of a grassy area that fronts the beach. There are several paths down to the water and a few benches along the way. The waves are visible from the condo and the patio. It is a very lovely and peaceful place. We recommend stopping at the Safeway in Seaside for groceries if one needs more than the very basics sold at the market in Gearhart.
Peg C. Jul 2015
Well deserved. 5+ stars. I would love to keep it a secret, but the owners have a great place here and deserve recognition.
Sophia at Vacasa helped us to score this location.
Chris F. Jul 2015
very comfortable, updated, condo and very easy access to the beach. The condo development is very small so no matter what, you are not surrounded by any sizable crowds at any point. The grounds are well cared for as well. A small market/grocery store, golf course and a few restaurants are close by. I hope to stay here again in the near future. The unit is ideal for a couple or maybe a couple with 1 or at most 2 small children. The unit even has a small espresso machine for those of you who need something stronger than regular coffee!
