Seaside Governor's House Vacation Rental 721 S Columbia Street, Seaside, OR 97138

Space, luxury, and convenience meet in this roomy Seaside vacation rental home, ideally located two blocks from the shore, and two minutes to shops, restaurants, galleries and arcades in downtown Seaside. Inside and out, this lovely 6,000 sq. ft. property with grand bay windows has four bedrooms, room for ten, and - in addition to amenities like Netflix and WiFi - a lush, beautifully landscaped yard, perfect for capturing a moment of peace and serenity.

Built in 1949, this home's decor preserves its original atmosphere, with gleaming hardwood floors, colorful area rugs, and comfy, period-faithful furniture that will take some back to a time when busy Seaside was a little less so. After a day strolling Seaside's iconic Promenade, settle into the cozy living area with its brightly painted walls and enough seating for everyone, including a recliner. Gather in front of the fireplace (which is decorative and non-functional) and decide if and where you'll eat out. Look for a likely place on your laptop with the free WiFi.

Despite the fact that there are dozens of places to eat around Seaside, you needn't go anywhere for meals. Though the fully equipped kitchen captures that home's period flavor, the appliances are top-of-the-line modern and will inspire your designated chef to put on that apron and get to work! With the requisite stove, oven, and microwave, meals will come together easily, whether it's eggs and bacon in the morning or an evening entree. Lots of cabinets, and lots of counter space, so put everyone to work with prep. Enjoy your meal at the elegant dining set in the separate dining room. When that coastal sun peeks through, take advantage with a barbecue on the gas grill out among the foliage in the beautifully landscaped yard.

Three of the four bedrooms in this unique Oregon Coast vacation rental are upstairs. One is on the lower level, with a queen bed and attached full bath. Upstairs, your stay in the master suite will not only include a comfortable night's sleep on a big king bed, you'll have private access to the outdoor deck with an awesome view of the Promenade and the beach beyond, and a TV that will stream Netflix shows and movies. There are two additional bedrooms up here, one with a full bed and a twin bed, and the other with a queen bed and a twin. A third bathroom on the upper level means there's less waiting to get the day started or to get ready for bed.

When you stay at this lovely Seaside vacation rental home, Seaside's landmark Promenade - a 1.5 mile-long avenue running parallel to the beach - is just footsteps away. Or, head downtown. There's lots of free parking right in the middle of town and a bunch of shops and galleries where you can indulge your inner shopper. That's not all: you can ride the carousel at the mall or put your dexterity to the test at the aracade, the biggest on the Oregon Coast. Take a hike on one of the many trails in the area, including Tillamook Head National Recreation Trail. Seaside also hosts a number of events, like the Kitefliers Association Convention in October.

Visitors have been coming to Seaside for generations, enjoying the beach and the all the fun things to do in town. Your stay in this lovely home will put you in the company of all these fun-seekers in an atmosphere that's spacious and cozy.

    My family (6 adults & 2 children) stayed here over the long Thanksgiving weekend & had a lovely time. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep, & have quiet time if needed. Beds were comfortable, & 3 bathrooms! The backyard was so gorgeous & huge, we were a bit sad the weather was so nasty that we couldn't enjoy it. The kitchen was full of utensils that made cooking our feast a breeze & the dining area was spacious. We loved this house! Everyone spent the weekend looking for clues as to which governor's house it was, to no avail. We'd love to know! The beach was a short walk, 2 long blocks, & "downtown" was 3 blocks. Thank you for the lovely stay, we will definitely be back!

    If you're happy with life circa 1950, you'll love this property. Okay, that's not totally fair, though this place is indeed like going into a time capsule in many ways. However, the property has been updated to a certain extent, where it's most important. There is a dishwasher and a modern coffee maker and an inexpensive stove/oven, not to mention wireless hook-up to the internet. The beds are new, with soft memory-foam mattresses. (Those who don't like soft beds should beware- those who like to sleep in comfort --like me--can rejoice!) The bathrooms have been updated with new toilets. There are new windows in some places, and old windows in others. The wooden doors stick; some of the old windows are inoperable, and the window-hangings are inadequate in some of the rooms. The furniture is like going into an antique shop--a delight for those who like such things (like me!) The furnishings in general are a trip down memory lane for those 40 and older. The kitchen is especially well-equipped in cooking pans, but not in appliances. If you bring your own mixer, you can bake a cake in the variety of pans provided, or breads, for that matter. Lots of pans, both for cooking and baking. Not a whole lot of utensils for serving. Three different sets of "china," which was nice, and a bureau holds multiple tablecloths or place mats. Other cupboards hold centerpieces. A person could definitely concoct a gourmet dinner with all the trimmings in this place, with a little pre-planning. There is no mixer or food processor; there is a blender, though we didn't try it to see if it works. There is an electric wok and an electric sandwich-griller, though we didn't try either one so maybe they don't work. The coffee-grinder works, thank goodness! There were several kinds of coffee filters in the cupboards, along with stuff like salt and pepper and flour. The refrigerator is small, so don't expect too much. Bring what you think you're going to need. The water tastes strongly of chlorine, but I suppose city-dwellers wouldn't notice this. The house is a bit musty and may need airing upon arrival. The upstairs hot water heater is totally inadequate for even one shower, much less for the three bedrooms (two baths) it serves. Plan on taking one quick shower before the hot water runs out. On the plus side, this place is roomy and on a very large and well-planted lot. It is two blocks from the beach and the ocean can be glimpsed from the master bedroom and from the deck over the garage. We (two different families) thoroughly enjoyed staying here and would do so again. Anything "negative" is so others can fairly judge the property, since tastes differ. I loved it and would stay again for an extended period if I could. If you're careful, two cars could fit in the garage and two more in the driveway. There are three different grills stored in the garage, none of them primo, but usable, I suspect. The weather was so bad while we were there that we didn't attempt to grill. Wind, hail, and torrential rain. It was nice to have an old-fashioned refuge from the elements, with lace curtains and armchairs. Another caveat--there is a flat-screen monitor-style "TV" in the living room, but although it is fairly large (by 1950s standards), it might not seem adequate to modern tastes, especially given the size of the living room. We (two families) enjoyed the room on a rainy night with reading and internet game-playing on individual devices. A fire in the fireplace would have made it perfect. For those who expect to watch TV, however, be aware that the room is long and all the furniture is at one end and the monitor at the other. We moved the monitor closer to the furniture when we watched a DVD. --On a side note, the French door out of the living room is lovely. Given good weather, this would have been a definite plus. As it was, we enjoyed pulling back the curtains and looking out at the nicely-landscaped yard as the storm raged. Again, a functional fireplace would have been very nice!

    Five of us old jazz fans stayed at the Gov's House for the 2015 Seaside Dixie Jazz Festival in February. A few problems, but overall quite pleased with our stay at this old house. The house was clean and the beds comfortable. Had some difficulty getting in with non-operating lockbox, furnace a bit slow to heat, some strange musical noises from the hot-water heating system. But it sure beat staying at a hotel. Location is excellent, and quiet (at least in February).

    This property is well worth the money. It is conveniently located close to the beach and Broadway. You never have to walk very far for anything. We parked up our vehicles for the holiday and only used them to visit Warrenton and Lincoln City, never for anything in Seaside. This is the first time we've visited Seaside as a family (5 adults & 3 children), my husband and I having visited on many previous occasions, but with a place like The Governor's House to accommodate all of us at a reasonable rate we will be back for sure. Older furnishings but a good fit for the age of the house. Beds very comfortable and in a quiet area. We all loved it and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

    The Governor's House had plenty of sleeping areas and lots of open space for our whole party of girls there this weekend. It's within walking distance to the prom, the beach and even the grocery store. We will be coming back again! Thanks to the vacasa staff for answering all my questions before our arrival!

    We loved it here. Second time staying and the rooms were fun old school. A little musty on the get go but after a good airing out was perfect. The mattress covers are memory foam. We aren't big fans but if you are you'll enjoy the king size master. Clean and the staff was helpful with our late check out. Great for larger families like ours.

    Although this house is older, it has its own charm and class. We found the beds to be very comfortable and plenty of kitchen supplies for meal preparation. If you have a large family or guests with you, this is a great house. The 3 full baths make it easy for everyone to get their day started. The master bedroom is very spacious and you can see the ocean off the adjacent upstairs deck. I would love to know the history of why this house is called "Seaside Governors House".
    My only recommendation would be to air it out now and then if no one has stayed in it for awhile. It had that stale smell you get at the coast when we arrived. After a day of using it and keeping the heat at 70, it was gone.
    The best thing about it is that it is one block off the beach and only 3 blocks from the main street through Seaside. It is so convenient to everything. This was our second year in a row using this property.

    We had 4 teenagers and 3 adults and this was a great house for everyone. Description says maximum 8 but there is bed space for 10. Could use a little upgrade but the location of the house and the great layout is worth a visit.

    We were meeting up with some friends from Canada and wanted a place where we could all be comfortable and relax so that we could catch up. The Governors House was everything we could have hoped for. Plenty of room for the kids to play inside and out. And comfortable enough for the adults to relax and enjoy the weekend vacation.

    Nice hous but somewhat old. Excellent location near beach, promenade and town. Beautiful, large yard w/grill (needs minor child proofing w/covers over grates). Beautiful Master but needs a shade in bath window. Kitchen and DR fine w/adequate dishes, seating, utensils, etc. TV's need upgrading & full cable availability. Some beds could be changed but all rooms are large enough. Biggest improvement would be addition of clothes washer/dryer (in garage). Some furniture old. Overall, however, we had a great time and never felt cramped. Would go back again if some of above changes made. Finally, excellent value for price charged.
