The Salty Dawg 881 Pacific Way, Gearhart, OR 97138

Look no further for your next group getaway or family reunion: this beautiful home in downtown Gearhart offers substance and style. With four bedrooms, two baths, and a backyard fire pit, it's the perfect spot for a gathering.

With hardwood floors, a modern white stone wood-fireplace topped by a flat-screen television, and a beautiful leather sectional sofa, the living area is a large and inviting space with plenty of room for everyone to gather for a game night or movie screening. The spacious and fully-stocked kitchen has picture windows looking over the front yard, making it a bright and pleasant place to prepare meals. Enjoy them at the casual breakfast nook or around the six-person dining table; the charming old-fashioned grocery store is just a short walk from the front door.

Two bedrooms have queen beds and one has a full, offering more private accommodations for couples vacationing together. The "bunk room" will be a big hit with kids, having six beds and its own bathroom, plus a separate entrance. A second full bathroom and a washer and dryer complete the house, making it comfortable and perfectly suited for bigger groups while still cozy enough for a small family vacation.

Although the house is in the middle of town, it feels very secluded on its private hillside lot. Roast s'mores around the backyard fire pit or take turns flipping burgers on the charcoal grill. When you don't feel like cooking, take a stroll to one of Gearhart's lovely restaurants, such as the excellent Pacific Way Cafe (two blocks away) and McMenamins Sand Trap pub (just over a mile). For more options, drive five minutes south to Seaside's touristy business district with a plethora of seafood shacks and pizza parlors; Cannon Beach, just ten minutes south, offers some of the coast's best restaurants and boutiques.

The beautiful sandy beach is a very pleasant half-mile walk, past Gearhart's charming downtown shops and along a sandy pedestrian pathway. Or, take advantage of the chance to drive along the sand on nearby Del Ray Beach. Nearby activities include beach combing, kite flying, sand castle building, whale watching, hiking, horseback riding, and much more.

    We rented this house for a family reunion and we all ran in a local 1/2 marathon. We had our children and grandchildren fly in from Alaska, Washington and AZ. Great times.

    House is very cute, old 50's Ranch, but needs some maintenance.

    I used this property while taking my two sons, their wives, two grand daughters, and a dog, on an extended family weekend to the beach. The house is not fancy, but it was clean and had everything we needed for our four day stay, including a BBQ and outdoor funiture. With its two bathrooms, three bedrooms, and a bunkroom that could sleep six, we had lots of room. We appreciate having a house to rent that is pet friendly. The house is somewhat secluded, which was nice. There is very easy access to the grocery store, coffee shops, and the beach. Also, the school across the street had big toy with swings, which my granddaughters enjoyed. Seaside is close by with its resturants and acitivies. Also, I appreciated the professional way we were treated by the folks at Vacasa.

    We loved our stay at the Salty Dog! The only thing was the blender was broken and they didnt have any tupperware to carry our sandwich stuff to the beach. Other than that we had a great trip!

    This house has plenty of room, a fire-pit for roasting marshmallows and making smores, comfy beds to sleep in with plenty of extra pillows and blankets. We enjoyed the outdoor grill and a table large enough to seat 8!

    We enjoyed our stay at the Salty Dawg over Presidents' Day weekend. There was plenty of room for two families (total of 4 adults and 4 kids). The bunk room is very cool and I would definitely encourage my kids to bring friends along next time. We enjoyed the fire pit in the backyard and appreciated that the house has a wireless internet connection. The largest downside to the house was the poorly-appointed kitchen. If you plan to do any cooking whatsoever, you will need to bring your own oil, spices and other staples, as the only staples provided were salt and pepper. There was only one small cutting board, which made it hard for a group to work together preparing meals. The house could also be made to feel a bit less sterile if there were artwork on the walls. It was odd that the walls were completely bare of any decoration whatsoever. While there are definitely weak spots in what this rental has to offer, we will definitely return if we are bringing our kids and dog.

    Great house for a couple families with a bunch of kids, or several families with a few kids. Lots of room, well within walking distance to a ton of things to do.

    We had a group of 6 girlfriends for a quiet getaway after Christmas and we had a nice time in this home. There was plenty of space for everyone and it was a pretty little setting. We threw our leftover bread, etc out for the birds the last day and enjoyed watching the feeding frenzy. There are some games on site and a very good selection of music in the living room dresser. It's an easy stroll down to the beach and plenty of good neighborhood walking places. We didn't visit any of the restaurants but the one in town was just a short walk away. Seaside is very, very close as is the outlet mall and the cinema so there is plenty to keep you entertained. Would stay here again.

    Had a wonderful time with our entire family. The house was very spacious so we did not feel like we were in each others way at all. Definitely want to make this a yearly trip. The weather was unexpectedly beautiful.

    we decided to take a family trip to the coast and while i wasn't sure about staying in gearhart, i booked this house b/c everyone had their own room/bed, it allowed dogs and it was walking distance to the coast. after finding the property (the driveway is hidden and a bit steep) we were pleasantly surprised by the modern furniture/appliances and roomy house. i had assumed the yard was fully enclosed by a fence (would have been ideal for dogs) but it wasn't. however, it's still very private and big. we LOVED the back mud room entry since our stay at the coast was wet and rainy. we could wipe off the dogs and ourselves before letting them into the house. i also loved that we can close off sections of the house with doors. this was very helpful in keeping the dogs out sections of the house or when babies were sleeping. a half mile walk to the beach lead us to a windy beach all to ourselves and we even saw a herd of elk in the grassy dunes. a great weekened with three generations of family AND our dogs! we will definitely stay here again.

    This is a great house especially for a large family. The selling feature for us was the huge kids room with bunkbeds! The kid's loved it. Very nice furnishings and plenty of cozy extra blankets. Just a very lovely short walk to downtown Gerhart to the home made ice cream and candy shop, upscale bakery and restaurant (family friendly) and the most amazing vista entrance to the white sand beach! We would stay here again. Note: perhaps ask someone to turn the heat on if you are staying during cold nights.

    We found that Del Ray beach (just down the road) was the best option for us with small children since you can drive out on the sand, no walking. The town of Gearhart is very nice we enjoyed it and the closeness to Seaside was great.
