Our most recent (5 star) review:
"The views of the ocean right from your deck/living room/bedroom window will take your breath away immediately, and then you'll smile every morning waking up to seals on the rocks! Wonderful coastal towns are just a quick drive away. Great, great places to eat and view the ocean in either direction! And to come home to a house with everything you need, and the hot tub ... It's just a wonderful, wonderful spot, and the owners leave the nicest personal touches, and reach out to you to make sure all is OK ... excellent all around!"
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.
Located across the street from the beach.
Every thought has gone into making your stay pleasant and hassle-free, from wireless internet, comfortable king beds in each bedroom, high-quality bed linens, 3 TVs and DVDs, an ipod docking station on the stereo, spices and condiments, guest spa/bathrobes, binoculars and spotting scope.
Beach access is across the street. There are also 4 State Parks with direct beach access within a radius of 2 miles from the Gullhouse.
The tide pools across the street draw visitors from all over the world. In addition, there are miles of walkable, sandy beach from our area down to the Waldport bridge, about 5 miles.
The little town of Seal Rock is within walking distance (1/4 mile) where you will find eateries: Indulge (fabulous ice cream shop and home of the Evil Brownie), Seal Rock Cafe, and Yuzen Japanese Restaurant. Across the street from the stores is Seal Rock State Park.
Minimum stay 4 nights June through August 2015.
Everything on the property.
Interaction with Guests
We are accessible almost 24/7 through email and phone.
The solitude is meditation quality.
The tide pools across the street are world class.
If you are a Sushi lover, you must try Yuzen's. It's an easy walk from the house and their food has been claimed to be "of San Francisco quality". Service is slow, so be patient.
You definitely need a car. Unless you are bicycling the Coast Highway.
Other Things to Note
There are bike lanes on Highway 101. The Gullhouse is a natural stop if you are biking the Coast highway.
Very strict 'no pet' policy.
Signed rental agreement.
No Smoking Inside. Please clean up after your outdoor cigarette use.
**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.
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!!!
