Modern home along the Ridgepath Trail w/ room for 4 & 1 dog!

This vibrant and modern Gearhart vacation rental is a fantastic home base for your couples', friends, or family getaway.

Located right in the heart of Gearhart (recently named one of America's top ten little beach towns by Travel and Leisure Magazine), you can walk right out your door and take a jog down the Ridge Path trail. The beach is close by for surfing, digging for clams, and catching some rays, then end the day with a delicious meal at any of the nearby eateries, including the well-loved Pacific Way Bakery and Cafe.

Tasteful and uniform on the outside, but step through the front door to find yourself in an airy, thoughtfully decorated space with beautifully modern touches.

The layout of the living room, dining room, and kitchen flows smoothly so you can be cooking a delicious meal in the full kitchen while your sweetheart relaxes on the plush living room sofa reading or enjoying a glass of wine at the bar. Spend a quiet night in watching a movie on the flatscreen TV using the included DVD player, Roku, or Netflix. There's even a stockpile of movies, games, and books to keep everyone entertained.

Hook up your iPod or other device to the Bose stereo while you whip up a tasty meal in the full kitchen. Dark granite countertops and white cabinets contrast perfectly to make this space a place you'll actually want to be. Along with stainless steel major appliances, a microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker, coffee grinder, and even an espresso maker are provided. There are cookware and dishes for everyone, so skip eating out each night and stay in for a tasty, budget-friendly meal at the eat-in kitchen or outside on the picnic table on the deck.

When night falls, retreat to the bedroom or lofted second bedroom area for a good night's sleep to be ready for the next day's adventures. The downstairs master bedroom features a double bed and a stand-alone shower in the en suite bathroom. A queen bed occupies the loft area, a second bedroom where the sounds of the ocean will lull you to sleep. There's a second, spa-like full bathroom with a jetted tub on the main floor for convenience. All four guests have a place to rest each night.

More great amenities here include WiFi and a washer and dryer. If you're traveling with young children, you'll be pleased to know there's a Pack-N-Play and a baby gate. And if you do bring your dog (under 40 pounds) with you, please keep in mind that there is a nightly pet fee.

Looking for more fun? Grab the included tennis rackets and play a match at the public tennis courts. Reserve a tee time at the Gearhart Golf Links, one of the oldest courses in the Pacific Northwest. Just three miles to the south, Seaside offers many family-friendly attractions. The epic views and charm of Cannon Beach and Ecola State Park are 12 miles down the highway. And 15 miles to the north, explore the creative renaissance and many brew pubs of Astoria.

Whether your time in Gearhart is filled with breezy summer sunsets or dramatic winter storms, choose this stunning Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental and enjoy all the comforts of home in style. A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

Great locale, lovely decor, shower a little weak and dishwasher wheels not working.
Would totally rent again!
Michael L. Mar 2020
I really love the quiet community of Gearhart and this place fits in perfectly. The place is cozy and well laid out. The kitchen is perfect, the lighting options are great, I'm a lighting geek :). The art around the house makes me want to meet the owner(s), its very interesting, this includes the great dishware options. As someone else commented the coffee making options are great, I liked having a french press available. The master bedroom is perfect. My friend and his son stayed in the loft queen and said it was great. There is a very nice gas grill on the back deck which we used 3 out of 4 nights. The water is nice and hot. I look forward to staying again someday hopefully. Cheers!

The house had a good layout with a central kitchen and a belly-up bar. The kitchen was stocked with all the pots, pans, utensils, glasses, dishes, etc. that one needs to cook a complete meal. We were want of nothing. This home also has a great jetted bathtub in one of the bathrooms. It was spotless and a real treat! The home has 2 bedrooms, one has a bathroom attached that includes a shower. It was spotless as well! Overall, for a party of 4, this place is perfect.
It sits on a quiet street close to "downtown" Gearhart. Despite being close to the "action" in Gearhart, we were visited by a herd of elk right outside the front door one night. You can easily walk to the beach from the house and we were able to see the sunset from the front porch.
The house was very clean and comfortable. I would rent it again and recommend it to friends and family.
Alan R. Nov 2019
From non-user-friendly television systems to black mold in the showers to lack of privacy from no window coverings to C thru window coverings and lack of accommodations for luggage and locations for belongings, etc. it always felt like we were needing to overcome obstacles with this stay.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Alan. We regret to hear that you had a negative experience with us. We are happy to report that we have removed the mildew in the shower, added new window drapes, and have ordered a luggage rack for this home. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Anna F. Nov 2019
House was lovely, bath was grand, kitchen was pretty well equipped, beds were comfy. Luckily, we weren't relying on the bicycles to get around, cause they weren't actually in usable condition. They perhaps should not be listed as an amenity until they're given a little TLC. Really enjoyed our stay, though - thank you!
Manager response:
We are sorry to see you were disappointed with the vintage bikes provided. They look older and function fine. Thanks!
Emily T. Sep 2019
Clean, well stocked kitchen, convenient location.
Jana H. Sep 2019
Really comfortable in a quiet family friendly neighborhood. Close to Seaside and Cannon Beach. I would definitely stay here again.
Maureen P. Aug 2019
Great house. Lovely neighbourhood. Beautiful art in this home.
Ben B. Jun 2019
We were looking for a dog-friendly home not too far from the beach. We have a one year old baby, so we needed a place with one secluded bedroom and another room for my wife and I. The house worked perfectly: it was quiet, about a mile’s walk from the beach, and had everything advertised. We would stay at the Murflehaus again. Bonus points for the good DVD and book library.
Janelle D. May 2019
The location is great - Gearhart is always a great destination and the house is just a block from the center of town. The house itself was comfortable and was a great place to have a quiet weekend.
Ashley O. May 2019
Very pleased with the location, a short walk to great coffee and pastries. Beach access was simple, keep walking across the dunes and enjoy the wonderful beach. Comfortable home, dog friendly and well equipped.
kelsey g. Apr 2019
Great time in this cute house. Kitchen was fully stocked, Roku for movies, Alexa for music, and games available. House was close to beach, Astoria, and Seaside. Only compliant was the blinds in the bedrooms didn’t block morning light.
Jeff G. Apr 2019
Fun beach house in great location.
Austin F. Apr 2019
We had such a nice time staying at the house. It was very clean, had every thing we needed, and was a close walk to downtown Gearhart and the beach. This was our first time visiting Gearhart and it is probably our favorite Oregon Coast town now. Will definitely be staying here again!!
Jesselle H. Jan 2019
This home is expertly decorated and felt like home right away! Gearhart is the cutest little town and this home was in the best location! A short walk to the beach, a short walk to Pacific Way Cafe & Bakery, and a short walk to all of the tennis courts. This home was so gorgeous, I hope to be able to visit in the summer. The perfect home for a long weekend!!
Peter P. Dec 2018
Great design. Great location. I wish there was a fire place but still very cool.
Charles B. Nov 2018
We enjoyed staying here over a November weekend with our two young children (6 and 4). It was a mellow, pleasant, open space, a close walk to the beach and a few nice little restaurants.
Lynne K. Nov 2018
house was just the right size for two adults and one dog with a just right walk to a just right beach. beds were comfy, too (not that the dog would know).
Micki C. Aug 2018
Murfelhaus met our needs for 3 boomer gals nicely. The kitchen and living room flowed nicely, was open and well supplied. Nice touch, having the light switches labeled and directions to get into free Netflix. Took a hot bath daily and enjoyed our stay. The stairs up to loft were a bit steep and narrow for an older person, but we did fine. The house was very nicely decorated and functional, and the pristine beach was within walking distance, as was the fabulous Pacific Way restaurant. The house is located on the old Ridge Path, and we saw a herd of ELK on the beach. Cool!
Crishna G. Jul 2018
Location was great, quiet, and the kitchen was well appointed.
Sahra R. Jul 2018
This small home was perfect for our family of 3. The open concept living/diving/kitchen worked out great and makes the home feel larger than expected. Lot's of videos and board games.
Only 2 blocks from the small center of town - including the bakery. And a couple more to the beach.
Nicole J. Jul 2018
Very clean and unique house. Loved the backyard (not fully fenced but nice) and the deck space. Stayed here for a wedding with a couple friends. We all thought it was a great space with an awesome Gearhart location. Would 100% stay again.
Kate B. Jul 2018
We loved the thoughtful design choices, the amenities, and the short walk to town and the beach.
Jeff N. May 2018
A lot of thought and effort was put into the design of the home. Great experience would love to use again
Preston G. Dec 2017
Lovely mid-century house with curated furnishings that was cozy, comfortable, and clean! Conveniently located...Walking distance to a charming corner with a small grocery store, bakery, and a few other eateries and shops. The beach is about 5 blocks away - walking distance if one is up for a "longer" walk. The town of Seaside is an easy drive.
Nancy A. Oct 2017
Nice comfortable and clean home. Aside from a couple of things that could make it even better, specifically cable TV and a shower head it the tub bath, it was excellent.
Grace A. Sep 2017
Overall we were happy with our stay here. The house is super cute. It is in a quiet area and very close to town and the beach. It comes with bikes and other sporting equip to use. There were a few issues we had with cleanliness- bed comforter was not clean and had dog hair all over it, unclean dishes. We would stay here again.
Manager response:
We apologize for the housekeeping oversights and will be sure to get those addressed. Thank you!
Michelle A. Sep 2017
This home's location was very convenient during our stay! It's right on the Ridge Path and the beach is just a short walk away. Great mid-century modern vibe throughout.

It's a super quick walk in the morning for pastries at Pacific Way Bakery ;-)

No complaints in regards to the gearhart property
Susan G. May 2017
Stayed in this house with my daughter and young son. Very kid friendly. Close to the beach and town.
Kathleen S. May 2017
Very nice cottage with modern updates.Very quiet and relaxing location two blocks from the bakery, restaurant and grocery store. An easy walk to the beach. The home could be improved with more lamps and brighter bulbs. It was difficult to read and do jigsaw puzzles due to dim light. Pots and pans are a bit of a hodge-pudge, but adequate for most cooking. The house is next to the ridge trail and we enjoyed being able to explore the trail. The house is the perfect size for two to four people. Would definitely stay again!
Mark R. Apr 2017
Great little cottage in a super convenient location for chilling or exploring the north coast. Easy walking to Gearhart shops/beaches & good launchpad for checking out Astoria, FT Stevens, Seaside & Cannon Beach.
Sarah W. Oct 2016
Loved the art in the house! Great location in a quiet neighborhood next to beach, trails and small downtown area.
Stacie O. Sep 2016
Central located with easy access to the beach and the down town bakery. Over all very clean but sparely furnished. Very helpful. The first night we arrived I need to check labs as I am a medical provider. The provided internet password was not correct. Over all good property just little items of frustration such as only one garbage sack for the entire 6 days we stayed, no kelnex but finally found a box stashed in closet. Floor not level so every time we used the washer it would get off balance and move....
Peter B. Sep 2016
Really nice house in a great location. Around the corner from the grocery store and a few restaurants. About 10-15 min walk to the beach. First time renting a house, using vacasa, or visiting Gearhart - everything was fanatastic. Thanks for everything
Clifford C. Sep 2016
This was a lovely home with a nice, open floor plan. It is a short walking distance from the Gearbest City Center and the beach. Our favorite features of the home were the loft bedroom upstairs, large bathtub downstairs, wooden patio outside the kitchen and the open floor plan. It felt very spacious and was a relaxing place for us to unwind after visiting the ocean and neighboring cities. It was extremely nice to get away from the crowds in Seaside and Cannon Beach. All of the neighbors and visitors in Gearbest were very mindful while driving, which we appreciated since we were their with out two young children. The home is right next to a horse trail, and our son was very excited any time he was able to watching someone ride by the home on their horse. the living room area included a TV, streaming videos using Roku, a wide selection of books and several board games. We felt like we had everything we needed for our extended weekend there and would definitely stay again in the future.
Kelly W. Aug 2016
Cute house
Elizabeth H. Aug 2016
We love Gearhart and we were really glad to find such a cozy, beautiful home to stay in for us, our two young children, and our dog! There are lots of thoughtful touches around the house to make it very comfortable and enjoyable. You can tell a lot of thought and care went into making it a special place to stay.
Roslyn H. Jun 2016
We loved our stay at Murfelhaus! Clean and beautifully furnished, simple and well-equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture. Quick walk to the beach or to the grocery or bakery. Loved being on the Trailridge Path and appreciated access to bikes! We would love to stay at this Vacasa home again!
Chris A. May 2016
This house was cute and a good size for our small family. We appreciated that it was child friendly (house includes a pack-and-play) and in a quiet neighborhood. The backyard and outside deck was nice, and the beach is just a short hike away.
Eric N. May 2016
The perfect house for our family of four and Rosie!
Alicia P. Apr 2016
The house is absolutely wonderful. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you would need. I love that you can bring your dog. Our dog loved playing in the yard and getting to go to the beach with us.
The beach is just a short walk away. We walked from the house to the beach as well as drove to Short Sands Beach south of Seaside which was amazing and also to Young Rivers Falls in Astoria. Both are super easy walks to the beach/falls with amazing views.
I love how close the house is to Seaside, it only took a few minutes to get to Safeway or the Outlet Mall. Super convenient location but very quiet and relaxing.
We will definitely come back to this house again and I would recommend it to anyone!
Dominic O. Apr 2016
We've stayed at the Murfelhaus numerous times for good reason. The property is well maintained. The interior design and aesthetic is really nice and modern while still having that cozy coastal feeling. Easily my favorite place to stay on the Oregon coast.
Susan M. Jan 2016
Enjoyed our visit very helpful staff .
Alison S. Nov 2015
Had a really lovely stay with my dog at Murfelhaus. The house is beautifully decorated and well maintained. Although it's not on the sea front, nor does it have a view, its on a lovely quiet road just a few minutes walk through the cute little centre of Gearhart to the beach. I'd definitely stay again.
Only small issue was the comfort level of the beds.
Max G. Nov 2015
Had a Great time staying here! Enjoyed the house, and all the amenities it provided. While the wind and rain didn't let up outside, we stayed quite cozy inside. It's all about Pacific Way Cafe & Bakery! It has great food, and is a short walk from house. Hope to book a longer stay next time!
Jen P. Oct 2015
We really loved staying at the Murfelhaus and will absolutely come back. It was nice to be able to bring our dog with us as well. The house was incredibly comfortable and furnished well so we felt at home staying in when it was stormy outside. Thanks for having such a great home to stay at in Gearhart. We will be back!
. Oct 2015
The quaint little town of gearhart is idyllic, peaceful and so quiet. The beaches are practically all for you- it's a very magical place. The house is a perfect companion to the scenery. A beach bungalow- tastefully decorated and with all the stuff u need to spend a few days away. Cannot recommend this place more.

Have fun'
Eva S. Sep 2015
I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking to get away and enjoy the peace and quiet of Gearhart. Comfortably furnished, well-equipped kitchen, and an easy walk to town and the beach make this a great rental t experience the slow coastal life.
