About this listing
Romantically private, stunning views, comfortable beds, sparkling clean, all the comforts of home & presented with coastal charm. You will understand why our reviews are stellar. Come and see. We will leave the light on for you. (GLBT frienldy)
The Gull House is completely secluded – you will not see another building – only the rocks, ocean, birds, whales, seals and surf.
Eagles soar over the gull and cormorant roosting rocks in our view. These same rocks provide a resting place for migrating pelicans. When the tide goes out you are treated to some of the most stunning tide pools in Oregon, teeming with sea life. Whales spout in view of the Gullhouse and mesmerize our guests for hours as they watch in awe. We hear over and over how the Gullhouse and its atmosphere brings our guests to a profound sense of appreciation for nature. Many feel there is something serenely magical about this lovely little spot.

You definitely need a car. Unless you are bicycling the Coast Highway.

**The Gullhouse has a fantastic protected view and is closer than many oceanfront homes to the beach. However it is located across the street from the beach and cautious crossing is necessary. Young children should be accompanied by an adult. There are 4 state parks with excellent beach access and parking for your car within a 2 mile radius.
Great directions and entry instructions and a message welcoming us plus Debi wrote an email to ask if we needed anything and if we had arrived ok. This is a fantastic spot to stay with outstanding views of the coastline just down the road from Seal Rock State park. We loved being able to view the harbor seals come and go on their chosen basking/resting rock, the sunsets from the deck, using the hot tub and walks on the beach. The house is equipped with everything you would possibly need for a comfortable vacation. We left feeling rested and renewed after three nights there.
James, you were a great guest, too! Billie, our housekeeper was very appreciative. We love that you enjoyed the area and took advantage of so many of the things to see and do there. I hope you also got an opportunity to stroll on the beach at low tide and examine our world class tide pools. Thanks for choosing the Gullhouse for your home on the Oregon Coast!
Rob & Debi,
Thanks for making our honeymoon picturesque, and serene. We arrived at the house to find the hot tub running, the music playing, and a bottle of champagne with a note welcoming us. Over the next couple of days, we went on walks on the local beaches, searched through several antique stores, and spent much of our time just relaxing at the house. The sunsets were unforgettable, sitting out on the porch with a bottle of wine. You guys have a lovely home, and we can't recommend it enough to people looking here.
Ross & Kate
Ross & Kate, we are so glad you enjoyed your honeymoon at the Gullhouse! Knowing that you enjoyed the ambiance of our little nest here and took advantage of the serenity to relax and wind down after your wedding means so much to us! Thank you for choosing our home for your special time together.
Our hosts made us feel welcome with advance notes about our visit, with a nice note welcoming us and by having everything beautifully readied for our arrival. They are so prompt on responding to messages and they really thought through suggestions that would make our stay comfortable and fun.
The descriptions and pictures are extremely accurate; I can go back to the listing and relive the wonderful time we add because the pictures are so accurate. This location is perfect. We visited the mid-Oregon coast from Florence to Lincoln City easily. We tried as many of our hosts' recommendations of activities and places to try and they were all superb! The view of the ocean and sky from the deck, living room and front bedroom was incomparable. Debi and Rob have also provided movies, games and reading materials if you just feel like whiling away a few hours on the deck listening to the surf. This was an exceptional experience in every way.
We had an absolutely fabulous weekend at the Gullhouse. Beautiful views of the ocean and a very cozy, clean home. Complete with welcome note and guides to local attractions and good eats, this retreat was a stunning place to take in the Pacific Ocean. We especially loved the hot tub and privacy of the location while only be steps away from exploring tide pools and the beach.
Debi was prompt with her return on the reservation request, checked in prior to check in, and made sure we were doing well during our trip. They view is incredible from the deck and the kitchen is well stocked with spices and condiments. We did not have to shop for anything. There was plenty of cookware and dishes to use. The beach is close and we loved walking around the tide pools in the morning checking out starfish. There is a tremendous amount of material available describing local activities and it encouraged us to try some new things while we were there.
Very welcoming and comfortable. It was equipped with everything you could ask for and felt like staying at a relatives home. Extremely spacious, very comfortable beds, and the view was outstanding. I truly believe they have the best view of any place on the beach. It's very centrally located so that you can enjoy towns both north and south for just a short drive. We had a great time and look forward to coming again! Thanks also for the bottle of wine to celebrate the 50th anniversary for our parents!
First off I must say that the communication with Debi was fantastic! Between emails and Rob & Debi's instructions/notes, we were set! Plus all the tips in places to go, what to do!
First and foremost what we loved was the privacy! Was so peaceful, tranquil. Loved just hanging on the deck listening to the waves crashing the shore. And OH the view!
Wish we'd had more time. We WILL be back and for longer next time!

About the Host, Debi
Debi & Rob are a husband and wife team, married since the Stone Age of the '70's. What started out as a way to augment our retirement income, in 2009 we started renting our family beach home to vacationers. Debi got bitten by the VR bug, and they added 2 more Oregon Coast properties to their VR portfolio. Being empty nesters, it made a ton of sense to refurbish their large Portland house, separate the yard, install a hot tub, and rent it out also on the Airbnb platform!
We love what we do, we love sharing our homes, and the best part is getting to meet people and interact with them in a fun and positive way. We embrace the Sharing Economy completely, as it enhances our own travels to see our children, grandchildren and the world. We would love to meet you too! Come stay with us!!!
