Sunny, oceanfront condo w/ great views & easy beach access

Take a break from your busy life for some quality relaxation at this oceanfront condo in Gearhart. With ocean views, immediate beach access, and a comfortable living space, this single-level condo provides optimal sleeping arrangements for four.

Located right off the beach, with a nice little path leading directly to the shore, you'll enjoy easy access to a long stretch of sand, and there's a golf course a short walk away.

The condo boasts a very comfortable atmosphere, with plenty of light coming through the picture windows looking towards the ocean. The main open room features a central kitchen, with living, dining, and work areas surrounding it.

With an island and full amenities including a blender, mixer, and dishwasher, the chef in the group will be in heaven in this kitchen, and always part of the action! Everyone will enjoy a meal together at the dining table with seats for six, and maybe a board game afterwards for a fun-filled, relaxing night.

An assortment of furniture in the living area lets you get comfy in front of the wood-burning fireplace, so you can have pleasant conversations or delve into one of the books on the shelf. A flatscreen cable TV on the wall allows you to watch DVDs on a stormy night.

A desk on the other end of the room is available for any work you need to do, with WiFi provided for your convenience. There's another sitting area with a couple of couches nearby for people to spread out.

Two bedrooms and two full baths make this condo comfortable for up to four guests. One bedroom features a queen bed, the other offers a king bed, and there is a queen sofa bed in the living room. Both full bathrooms have stand-up showers.

Head outside to find your own little patio where you can set up your own beach chairs, or walk the short distance to a bench on the bluff to admire a vibrant sunset. You'll find the surf just a very short walk down the path from the back door!

This condo is perfect for a couples retreat or a small family - you'll find golf just a quarter-mile from the house at Gearhart Golf Links, and shared tennis and basketball courts about a mile from the house. With the sand so close, you'll be able to spend all day building sand castles, flying kites, and playing in the surf, heading back to the house for snacks and coming right back out. Though Gearhart may be small, it offers a few amazing dining options, including the Pacific Way Bakery & Cafe.

For more fun, drive the five miles south to Seaside, where you'll enjoy an aquarium, arcade, a variety of eateries, art galleries, and shops galore. The carousel mall is especially fun - you'll find a quirky hat store, a toy shop, and a store to buy any kind of kite you can think of. Head next door for ice cream before you make your way back to the sand!

This oceanfront condo places you close to the beach for a truly relaxing vacation - book today! 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.

We did enjoy our stay due to having our daughter from Utah and the location of the property. Several inconveniences to note; Note on the washer stating it leaked badly and "the owner was aware", no lightbulbs in the new fixture above the sink in the bathroom (very weird bulb insert, maybe from Ikea?), no presto log for our first night fire as promised in the listing, no curtains over the new glass doors in the bedrooms, pictures no longer accurate: 1 queen, not 2, in bedroom, different furniture, etc. , front patio under renovation and quite a mess - dirt and gravel everywhere, workers old coffee cups, gloves, buckets, etc, smoke detector missing from one of the bedrooms (not enough in unit anyway), door left unlocked by worker who came to install light bulbs (which took 24 hours to complete), no bathmat or rug to step on after shower, ill fitting curtains on bedroom windows letting too much light in, pile of dirt in parking spot, gravel not cleaned up from work, Again these were inconveniences and therefore my rating is very low but we did feel the location was amazing and for the most part the unit was clean and stocked well.
Manager response:
Lorin, thank you for providing your valuable feedback. We are sorry for any inconvenience you encountered during your stay. Please know that we do our best to provide guests with the comfort and satisfaction they deserve. Local staff are always available to assist if there are amenities in the home that fall short. We hope to have a chance to host you next time. Thank you.

So quiet, and right on the beach. Only reason I didn't go 5 stars is because you can't see the ocean from the condo, but it is right out the door. Solid amenities. Nice space. Functional. Clean. Good beds. I may go back next year.
Judy R. Sep 2019
Quiet and close to the beach just a short walk over the bluff. Even had some elk in the yard one morning. Well appointed kitchen and comfortable beds. Close to Seaside
Janet S. Aug 2019
We enjoyed our 2 night stay. The location is wonderful for quick access to the beach. When inside, we had a peaceful view of the dunes while listening to the ocean, even while cooking and eating in the well stocked kitchen. The property has a trail outside, but it is still fairly private. We were thrilled to see elk on the dunes one of the evenings before dark.
Madalyn T. Jul 2019
This is one of the best locations and accomodations we have had at the beach. Loved the privacy, the quiet, the lawn, the trail to the dunes, the benches on the dunes. Though it's not new, the unit is really comfortable with a great updated kitchen and everything in it. We met nice people and dogs who resided in the neighboring units. The king bedroom needs the finishing details of the remodel to be completed. Also, lights in that bathroom need replacing. One negative is the courtyard off the bedrooms is not usable due to construction stuff strewn about. Would be nice to have that wind-free space to enjoy. Otherwise, it was great!
Manager response:
Madalyn, we’re glad that you had a great time at the beach and we appreciate you taking the time to write about your experience. We’ve made sure that the bathroom lights and items outside have been addressed. We look forward to hosting you again!

Great condo for the two of us. Couldn't beat the location and it was done up really cute! We will use this place again when we come visit family.
Joel M. Jul 2018
We loved everything about this place.
Ana P. Mar 2018
Todo estaba muy bien!
Gina J. Mar 2018
Great location. On the face of it looks great. Nice layout and newer kitchen. But bedroom carpet is stained and worn, missing baseboards, shower head does not lock in position, sofas are worn and uncomfortable, upholstery needs cleaning throughout, worn out furniture in bedrooms. A bit of a disappointment given the price.
Manager response:
The owner has bedroom and sofa upgrades planned for April. Thanks!
Nicole R. Feb 2018
Cute little place. It is on the beach but does not have a view of the ocean. Still nice and relaxing.
Karen E. Jan 2018
Despite its obvious age, the condominium was clean, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Liz G. Oct 2017
Location is great. Beds, bedding , towels and kitchen are well stocked. Living room furniture is uncomfortable to sit one, dated IKEA in style. Walking over the dunes to a beautiful beach is wonderful.
Suzi M. Sep 2017
Great location
Kristi P. Sep 2017
The layout of the home with the bedrooms and bathrooms and open floor plan was very family-friendly. We were happy to have the beach such a close walking distance and we were extremely happy to have a nice big green grass yard for the boys to play in while we were inside cooking. Another benefit of the location, is that the ability to drive on the beach starts right where the beach house is located so every evening we loaded up our family and drove along the beach which was a very special treat to our children. During those evening drives we saw a huge herd of elk, and a seal up on the sand and too many birds to count.
Kasey M. Sep 2017
The condo is lovely - but the dryer sheets / cleaning products were overpowering and gave two people very bad headaches. It made it difficult to sleep in the house.
Beth M. Aug 2017
Fabulous location!
Spectacular beach
Bonus elk
Comfortable condo
Darling town
Scott V. Aug 2017
We enjoyed our stay. The residence was clean and had everything we needed. Plenty of new, clean linens and towels this was greatly appreciated. Location is fantastic.
Jacqueline R. Jul 2017
Everything was great except the dryer vent that went to the outside. It was clogged and was a fire hazard.
Manager response:
We are glad to see this was an enjoyable visit! The dryer isn't clogged; it's just an older single stage dryer. Thanks!
BEHROOZ B. May 2017
We had a really great time at the property and enjoyed the location and facilities.
There are two things that I should state them:
-- The address you see before you pay is defiantly INCORRECT
-- It's a pet free property; however, we accidentally saw leftover pet food along with excrement outside and inside the condo under the sofa seat- they probably missed it.
Other than those, we really enjoyed our stay- thank you very much
Manager response:
We are delighted to see this guest enjoyed their stay. If they were using a GPS to locate the home they probably did have difficulty finding it as we have discovered the system does not properly locate the property. Please use the driving directions sent via email. This home is pet free; we are sorry to see somebody was not following that policy. We will ask housekeeping to be more thorough when cleaning. Thank you!
Karen M. May 2017
Good location (good access to the beach, well stocked kitchen, two bedrooms/two baths make this unit work well for two couples. The condo is ocean front but you cannot see the ocean from the condo. Rather you see grasses.
Josie B. Mar 2017
We loved the bright open layout, two baths were nice with the kiddos. Great location, close to the beach and Seaside fun. Dissapointed there was no view of the ocean...we were close, quick walking distance, but a large dune prevented an ocean view...which would have been nice since it rained most of the time. The views of the ocean on the website are not from the room...but from the benches on the top of the dune.

This property is in an amazing location with easy beach access across lovely beach grass. Highly recommended UNLESS you are sensitive to or prefer not to have lots of scents and toxic laundry products in your surroundings. I am hoping that management can try to find scentless products.
Robert G. Oct 2016
Being close to the ocean and having herds of elk outside your window was great. But having NO screens on the doors or windows so you could not open them made it very musty. Also updating would be a good idea bathrooms had slugs in shower and kitchen had pincher bugs Not a great experience
Manager response:
Housekeeping has inspected the home for slugs and bugs and have not found anything. There are fans in the home to be used if the home is feeling muggy or needs a breeze. Thank you!
Michael G. Sep 2016
Gearhart proved to be a fine center for visiting the north Oregon coast. Accommodation was spacious and comfortable, spotlessly clean, and had the best array of cooking utensils, silverware, and glasses we have ever encountered in a rental. The many Lewis and Clark historical locations within easy driving distance were all enjoyed, Cape Disappointment in particular.
Ryan C. Aug 2016
It did not have a negative impact on our trip, and it was my fault for not doing my due diligence, but this is not a stand alone property, as I thought it was during the original reservation. Great location, great little town, but first glance at the reservation page may have you thinking its a little house on the beach, it's not.
Zoe G. Aug 2016
We had an incredible 5 days at this Gearhart location! We've stayed at many other Oregon Coast properties. This is was, so far, the best maintained. The bathrooms definitely show some age, but the place was so clean and well appointed. Really nice linens in both bedrooms and bathrooms. Great kitchen gadgets stocked with almost everything you would need. The short walk to the beach was nice and we practically had the place to ourselves. Very good location close to Astoria, Seaside, Cannon Beach, Arch Cape and wonderful hiking and state parks. We liked having the privacy and quiet of Gearhart, but heading into "town" for a shopping and dinners out.
Eric H. Aug 2016
Great for our family of 4 - very quiet, comfortable furnishings, great kitchen, proximity to seaside and Astoria was wonderful while still having the quaint quiet of Gearhart.
Kathy G. Aug 2016
Perfect location and configuration for our girl's getaway trip to the beach. We were very comfortable and were entertained by a herd of elk in the field next door!
Juan G. Jul 2016
Cute beachfront property. Plenty of space for four adults and one child. Some highlights included seeing a herd of elk walking by in the morning and having a Sunset picnic in the beach. Highly recommend!
SAM B. Jul 2016
The beach was massive and secluded! Everyone we came in contact with was super friendly!
Yashaswini Raghuram P. Jun 2016
Excellent place with the beach just a few steps ahead! We enjoyed a brilliant sunset and moonrise at the beach. Well lit house because of the sun roof! it was such a cute and a dreamy home. Ideal for a romantic getaway.
Sheetal G. Jun 2016
It was an ideal beach vacation for my family - cozy condo, well maintained, well furnished, great kitchenette. All the instructions for our stay were conveyed to us by email. Less than 5 minute walk to the beach, very picturesque. There was a large herd of elk grazing close by, that was an added attraction for us.
Nancy E. Jun 2016
This place could use some updating in the bathrooms. Very small showers. No tall men allowed. Well equipped kitchen. Lots of seating options and good table space. Great location for quiet stay and access to beach trail or drive onto beach nearby if elderly or handicap guests which was nice. Drive onto the beach for the sunset.
Heather P. May 2016
This home was absolutely perfect for our visit to Gearhart/Seaside/Astoria - having the split bedroom & bathroom layout was excellent for a 2-family holiday, the unit was very clean and superbly appointed!
Melanie V. May 2016
The bedrooms were comfortable. King bed in master was great. Kitchen gadgets were good, and the location great for clamming.
