  • Description

    The Gullhouse is a rare, secluded, intimate hide-a-way on the popular Central Oregon Coast.

    Enjoy the stunning views of dawn over the ocean, crashing storms, whale spouts, and dramatic sun sets as you drink wine on the deck, sit in the hot tub or even from the comfort of the great room!

    Walk across the street to the Seal Rock Wayside (the beach)! Or, if you prefer, choose one of the 4 State Parks within a 2 mile radius of the Gullhouse. Take a picnic lunch, a kite and don't forget your camera!

    Our guests travel here from all over the world to revel in the amazing views of the crashing surf and ocean wildlife. They love sitting in the secluded hot tub (no neighbors other than the seals) and watching the gulls, pelicans, bald eagles and magnificent gray whales, migrating 12,000 miles from Alaska to Baja and back.

    At low tide you can see orange and purple sea stars and a dozen seals resting on the rocks. You don't have to leave the Gullhouse to experience the beauty of the Oregon Coast and many of our guests don't!

    The home is equipped with every modern amenity, including a large deck, ocean view hot tub and a kitchen that will serve every cook's need. (One of our guests hosts a TV cooking show, and even HE was happy with what he found!)

    There are binoculars, a spotting scope and bird & marine life identification books for your use.

    Newlyweds experience their idyllic honeymoons at the Gullhouse and return for their anniversaries. A number of our guests have chosen the Gullhouse as the place to pop THE question. Birthday celebrations and families have gathered to enjoy the serenity, hand-in hand walks on the beach, and to inspect the amazing tide pools.

    Close to the Hatfield Marine Science Center, the biologists frequently take their specimens from our beach. The historic town of Newport and the Newport Aquarium is also close.

    Tastefully furnished and decorated with coastal charm, you will find the Gullhouse to be spotless, comfortable and quiet, filled with light from its many windows and skylights. The Gullhouse is the perfect place for you to enjoy all the wonders of the Oregon coast.

    We love helping our guests find their best vacations. Give us a call, or send an email today!

    • Sweet!

      Reviewed by Jeff Westover from Lake Oswego, OR, USA on May 27, 2016 for their trip during May 2016

      The place is great! The hot tub overlooks the ocean and is completely private... The place itself has everything you need; perfect for a couple, two couples, or a small family. The owners are easy to deal with and very accomodating. Great stay

    • Excellent

      Reviewed by Sandra B. on April 26, 2016 for their trip during April 2016

      As if the location itself weren't wonderful enough, the house itself is wonderful. It is an older house, but extremely well maintained and very clean. The owners have gone out of their way to make sure that their guests have a memorable stay. Even before my arrival they sent e-mails with information, including directions (gps does not work on the last few gravel roads leading up to the house), suggestions for things to do on the coast, and favorite restaurants(Tidal Raves was good, and we really enjoyed the hiking around devils churn). The views are excellent, and even though the house sits right above the 101 you can't see it. The hot tub was sparkling clean. The bed was comfortable. The kitchen was the best stocked kitchen I have ever seen. Plenty of plates, glasses, etc but also plenty of different cookware. You could make a feast. The table looked big enough to comfortably seat six. There were two sitting areas, one with a tv. The other seating area is next to the dining area and has windows looking onto the ocean, with some comfy sofas to relax in while you enjoy the view. We really enjoyed the time we spent here, and would definitely come back.

    • 9-year anniversary week-long stay -- heavenly

      Reviewed by Chrissy and Lou from Vermont on September 16, 2015 for their trip during August 2015

      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!

      Owner Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at the Gullhouse! We feel we have some of the most stunning scenery in the State, which we love to share - as well as our home and our community . Our sincere desire is for you to have a unique and individualized Oregon experience. Our only regret is that we don't get to meet more of you face to face. Thanks so much for the lovely review and choosing our place for your anniversary celebration. It's wonderful to have the feedback!

    • Nice view, average house

      Reviewed by jlbwv from Sissonville, WV, USA on August 17, 2015 for their trip during July 2015

      The house was just ok. The web page for this rental is a little misleading as to the location. You are not on the beach side of the road. All the amenities in the house were in good working order except for the furnace thermostat which needed new batteries before the furnace would work and the dull knives in the kitchen. The view is very nice out the front windows. We did not use the hot tub. The house is tucked away at the end of an unpaved drive which gives you good privacy. There were a lot of old VHS tapes and some newer CD's to watch, but not much in the collection we wanted to watch. There is no TV service or Netflix, etc, at this house. The one movie on tape we did watch would pause frequently so the upscaling feature of the player could catch up. We had to move some of the owner's abundance of beach/nautical accessories out of the way in order to have room for our stuff. There were cobwebs in the bathroom and black stains (mold) in the skylights in the bathrooms. The tops of the mirrors and some of the other molding was caked in dust. The rest of the house was pretty clean, although well lived in. Basically, this is a place in a decent location that needs less superfluous items and a major update of some of the amenities as well a very thorough cleaning.

      Owner Response: Thank you so much for this review. While it is not pleasant to receive our first 'negative' review, I value the information you have offered here, and have taken this opportunity to improve our home based on your suggestions. Most disturbing was to read that the verbiage we had on our website about our property not being oceanfront is now missing. I have taken immediate steps to repair that! I'm sorry you didn't take the opportunity to use the hot tub. It's a magical place from which to watch the stars, or gaze on the crashing surf below. During the daytime and migrating season, you can spy the whale spouts from the hot tub, the deck and from inside our modest little home. We have the hot tub serviced before every set of guests arrive. Thank you again for your honest review. Rob and I love sharing our little home and it's unique privacy; we want to offer the best quality of experiences that we can to our many honeymooners and anniversary celebrants. Your review offers us more ways to improve, and we are grateful. Sincerely, Debi

      We stayed at the Gull House for our Honeymoon. We had a great time! We loved the hot tub and the privacy. Debi was great helping with the booking and answered all my questions promptly. We appreciated the list of activities and dining provided.

    • Moment By Moment Reminder of God

      Reviewed by Robin from Southern California on June 16, 2015 for their trip during June 14, 2015

      From the house log: Alas, our last day ... Joy comes in many packages and this experience was filled with joy & overflowing with love and the beauty; majestic; overflowing, persistent, a moment by moment reminder of God. Being here on the Oregon Coast in this tranquil, rejuvenating environment reminded us of all the wys we are so richly blessed. Remembering this in our daly life s not always easy. This is another adventure with the beautiful women "I want to do life with" & my 95 yr old mom whom I've done life with. We created memories that will last a lifetime and when mom moves on in her journey my dear Mandy & Diane will remind me of these special moments. The added bonus was to watch my two BFFs come down from the assaults & stress of life, safe and comfortable in this magical setting to relax, laugh, share, cry ... and individually ebb and flow by the Sea as they drifted into a room for alone time, stood to watch the waves, cooked in the kitchen to laugh and rejuvenate their essence. I am truly overflowing and filled with love. Thank you for sharing this journey with us & letting us share in the warmth & tranquility of this unbelievable space. We will be back!

    • Hypnotic

      Reviewed by Diane from Seattle on June 16, 2015 for their trip during June 13, 2015

      From the house log: We four women had a wonderful weekend of relaxation. The view was hypnotic and the sound of the crashing waves lulled us to sleep at night. Your home is comfortable, well equipped & spacious. Only wish we could have spent a couple more days. I hope we can return again in the near future.

Great shower, private and just right! I enjoyed just watching the ocean from the living room, listening to the sounds of the waves and watching the most beautiful sunsets! Would love to come back again. Thank you for providing this wonderful home with the Best View for us to enjoy.

    • I feel at home ...

      From the house log: This house is beautiful! feel at home here and it's hard for me to feel that way. We went down to the beach today and collected mollusk and clam shells. We also went south to Heceta Lighthouse and it was a sight to see! I would love to stay again one day. Hopefully next time we'll fly down, because that drive from Cleveland, Ohio was a rough one! Rob & Debi left us a bottle of wine for our 10th anniversary, which was a pleasant surprise upon arrival. Great taste in movies, too!

      Lovely stay ... it was actually our second visit to the Oregon coast in 3 years. Comfortable. Cozy. Relaxing. Hot tub was nice. Loved the sound of the ocean. Close to the beach ... lovely walk before dinner on our second night. Debi was very welcoming - even during the booking process. Quick to respond. We appreciated the list of activities, restaurants with the best views, the best place to see the tide pools, where to pick up a few groceries in town, etc. The kitchen had everything we needed. The bed is reallyyy soft. Plenty of blankets, towels, etc. All in all, a lovely relaxing stay. Thanks again.

      Owner Response: Our goal is to have you enter the home and need nothing. The plethora of kitchen equipment, extra blankets, spa robes and binoculars are all there for you to use and truly feel at home. I'm glad we could be of service to you, and truly appreciate your choosing our place for your second trip to the Oregon Coast!

    • Relaxation With A View

      Reviewed by Makenna R. from Duncan, British Columbia on November 24, 2014 for their trip during November 2014

      Incredible view, fabulous hot tub and full privacy from neighbors and beach walkers. This home was so nicely decorated, comfortable beds and quiet. The bedrooms are separated from each other and one with a jetted tub if you did not want to hot tub. The owners were quick to respond, supportive, and refunded the deposit quickly. We stayed at several places traveling from Canada and this is our favourite. You feel like the owners trust you as the house is fully and tastefully decorated, not just junky cheap furnishings. We felt so welcome with music playing when we entered the home and bathrobes ready for a visit to the hot tub. The view was the best and you had several scenic opportunities. Thanks for the stay, we will be back, cheers!

      Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely review and for choosing the Gullhouse for one of your Oregon Coast stays. We would be more than happy to welcome you back again!

    • Honeymoon

      Reviewed by Kyle B. on July 24, 2013 for their trip during June 2013

      We could not have asked for a more beautiful place to relax and enjoy our honeymoon. We flew into PDX and it was about a 3 hr drive. The pictures simply did not do it justice. Simply breath taking views. The hot tub was used extensively and the sunsets are stunning. It has easy access to the 101, so traveling up and down the coast is a cinch. Newport is 10-15 min away and has everything one would need supply wise. Whale watching, an aquarium, excellent food, and a quiet beach are all so close. The beach across the 101 is gorgeous. It is a bit of a climb down, but absolutely worth the effort. We would absolutely stay here again.

      Owner Response: Kyle, thank you for the excellent review. We are delighted that honeymooners have found us! For future reference, there is a path just north of the rocks that make descent onto the beach much easier. Also, Rob has created a guest guide book that offers suggestions for 5 State Parks with excellent access within a 2 mile radius of the Gullhouse. The hot tub at sunset, overlooking the ocean and it's crashing surf is the perfect honeymoon touch, isn't it? We hope that you and your wife will come back again - maybe for an anniversary? We would love to have you back, you are excellent guests!

    • A beautiful setting

      Thank you for sharing your adorable beach home with us. The view is phenomenal. We loved the privacy and amenities. Thank you for such a warm welcome (music & wine - how sweet!) A beautiful setting to celebrat 22 years of wedded bliss!

      The sunsets were spectacular!

      P.S. Loved the guidebook created by Rob!

    • Slowing of Life's Pace

      We often forget the joy of tranquility and the slowing of life's pace. In this setting we are gratefully reminded ... there is nothing like the ability to watch and hear the ocean - out on the deck, or inside away from the chill of the wind. it is one of the many gifts Oregon has given us - and this place has provided in abundance. We much appreciate the chance toe xperience Gullhouse.

    • A Perfect Spot

      There aren't words for how much we enjoyed our brief time here. What a perfect spot! We had two amazingly sunny days. The tide pools are the best we have ever seen and the Oregon Aquarium exceeded my expectations. I am so sorry to have to leave, but we will be back! The Gullhouse turned our 4th anniversary into the honeymoon we never had!

    • Absolutely Beautiful

      Absolutely Beautiful - I was not slightly disappointed. It is everything you guys say it is!!

    • Breathtaking Views

      We couldn't be more happy with our stay here. Pictures do not do justice for the breathtaking views we've experienced. As for the amenities, we could not have had anything more ... it was perfect. Thank you for the hospitality and providing us all with an experience we will never forget.

    • Your Gift must be Hospitality!

      What a lovely home you shared with us, making us feel card for. The beauty surrounding your area is just awesome. The walk on the beach were delightful, the tide pools exciting, the Aquarium educational, making so many memories. We purchased a wood carving of birds for our lake cabin to share with friends.

      This was a special 25th Anniversary trip for M& J. J & S will have their 54th anniversary in August - J has dreamed of coming to Oregon for a long time - this trip was her dream come true.

      Thanks for all the little things you thought of that we might need. Your Gift must be Hospitality.

    • That's a vacation!

      Thank you so much Debi and Rob. What a beautiful house. It was everything your website showed. I probably looked at 50 rental homes and I am 100% sure we picked the right house. Enjoyed the beaches, jacuzzi, mever turned on TV, read a newspaper or internet. That's a vacation!

      God Bless!

      P.S. As we were leaving the most beautiful rainbow appeared on the ocean.

    • Memories to last a lifetime

      There are so few places that can bring complete strangers together through individual experiences. I don't know the people on these pages (the Gullhouse logbook) but I shared a moment in this house. Memories that will last a lifetime. And THAT is something no hotel could ever replicate. This home is fortunate to share so many happy memories. Thank you for the opportunity to share this with my daughters. Thank YOU for being a part of this memory.

    • I've never fallen in love with a place so fast!

      How do I describe my stay here? ... hmmm ... how about sensory overload?! Before we came we were sold on the photos, BUT they, by no means, did the place justice. Every time we stepped into the living room we'd stop, captivated by the awesome view which seemed to continue to change. We normally enjoy TV of an evening, but only watched 2 hours the entire week. Loved, loved, loved the walks on the beach, checking out the tide pools, playing our favorite music, dancing with the waves & evening hot tub soaks. Also enjoyed the local sites, but every time we ventured out I looked forward to getting back to the house! I've never fallen in love with any place so fast, just sorry it took 30 years to get here.

      Thank you, Rob and Debi for the great stay and all the helpful info you sent us. Hope to get to meet you some day. God's very best to you!

    • Like sitting in the middle of a post card!

      I felt as though I was sitting in the middle of a postcard. The view was breathtaking, the sound of the ocean calming and the hot tub rfelaxing. I loved sitting in the room with the windows just staring at the ocean and wondered how God made something so beautiful. I enjoyed my morning runs on the beach, the adventures on the hikes and rocks as well as the BBQ! There are so many wonderful things I could say, but most of all I feel blessed to have been able to share your home. thank you! I hope to bring my husband back next year.

    • An amazing spot to sooth your soul.

      What a perfect spot to sit still! After touring around Oregon for 10 days we finally landed here at the Gullhouse. It felt like we had made it home. It was difficult to explore the local areas because all we wanted was to stay here. Didn't miss not having a TV at all - in fact, was a blessing. Spent lots of time in the hot tub drinking fabulous wine.

      We will always remember the Gullhouse with such fond memories and are so sad to have to leave. We are already trying to figure out our next return trip. Debi & Rob, you have an amazing spot to sooth your soul. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

    • Should have stayed longer

      Great trip. Great house. We really enjoyed our stay. We should have stayed longer. We especially enjoyed the 6 following:

      *Seals on the rocks every am
      *Hot tub every pm
      *Nana's and Chowder Bowl at Nye Beach
      *Beach combing up and down the coast
      *Whale watching at Depoe Bay
      *Kayaking at Waldport

    • Rainy weather no obstacle to a dream come true

      I'm sitting here looking out at blue sky and sunshine for the first morning since we've been here. Ha! Go figure...we are leaving today. :(
      It did not stop us from having one of the most amazing trips ever...your home is awesome and beautiful and everything we hoped it would be! Thank you for sharing it with us. Our son is heading for CSU in August and we wanted a very memorable trip before we send him off. This did it!!

      We had some amazing family bonding time playing in the ocean, whale watching - our first time in the open sea, eating lots of yummy food, touring light houses & the aquarium & hanging out in the hot tub.

      Thank you for helping make this dream come true.

    • I could sit here and look at the ocean forever!

      Thank you for sharing your beautiful space with us. The whales and the seals are amazing to watch. I could sit here and look at the ocean forever! The blessings of the beauty and peace had recharged and revved our souls--

      The ceremony of blessings of the water, drumming for the Earth, balance and Reiki love to all

    • The Gullhouse and ocean here hold my heart

      What an amazing welcome we have been blessed with -- we have been serenaded by whales all day our first day and into the evening. It was the most magical thing I have ever seen! Waking up to the seals and the ocean songs are all I imagined and more! Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful place with us. I want to return every summer. The Gullhouse and ocean here hold my heart.

      Many blessings to all. Thank you Debi & Rob.

    • Relocate the Highway

      We loved our stay here -- loved the view -- the hot tub. Now, if you could relocate the highway, it would be perfect!

    • All the comforts of home

      Thank you for all the comforts of home. The view was spectacular!

    • Relaxed, relaxed, relaxed

      Had a great time! Relaxed, relaxed, relaxed! One thing that we did that we recommend is the kayak trip, but be sure to book it early! Reservations are made at South Beach.

      We will be back to enjoy the view again!

    • So much better than a hotel

      Wow & wow, what a great relaxing house. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Everything you can possibly think you might need is already here. We loved the deck with the beautiful views and sunsets. The first day we overdid it and drove all the way up to Astoria. Stopped at many vistas and sights. Of course we stopped at Tillamook and got cheese; toured Ft. Stevens and saw a civil war re-enactment. Long, long day and drive back... Had dinner at Jacks Steakhouse in Depoe Bay, oh so good and fabulous service.

      Next day explored south. Favorite place was Cape Perpetua area with outstanding hikes and views. Another favorite was Smelt Sands Park. I could have stayed the whole trip there. Saw many whales there; what a thrill. Had a great dinner at Georgie's in Newport.

      Thanks for a great place to come back to every night, and wake up in the morning. Loved the privacy of your location, so much better than a hotel.
      God Bless.

    • Perfect B'Day present

      Thank you for sharing Gullhouse with us! It was a perfect b'day present for my husband. (And a lovely time for just the two of us.) The fog denied us a sunset, but the mist was peaceful and lovely.

      We hiked and whale watched by day, and dined and hot tubbed by night. With Carrie's in Depoe Bay we saw three whales (including a mom and calf). The sea lions in Newport made us laugh and the beaches showed us the awe and majesty of this magnificent coast.

      Thanks for the wine and for the tips for great gems of the coast, and the evil brownies were ... well... evil. :)

      Gold Coast Fish Market was a good find for fish chowder after a stroll on Beverly Beach, but most of all will be the special memories of here!

    • You thought of everything

      We had a really lovely time, and felt that you guys had thought of everything to make this a great getaway house. Beach sunsets while in the hot tub were amazing!

    • Best of all was the Gullhouse

      We really enjoyed our week on the Oregon coast. Monday was sunny and low 70s, - walked trails at Cape Perpetua, and had a late lunch at Luna Sea in Yachats (excellent slumgullion). Sea Lion Caves are unique and worth the visit. Walked Heceta Head trail - unfortunately lighthouse appears to be under renovation. Many bookstores to browse.

      Best of all was the Gullhouse -- so peaceful with unparalleled views of the Pacific. What we referred to as the sun room is so comfortable and relaxing with coffee in the morning...reading...anytime. Tomorrow we will head back to Portland with our Bali penguin in tow - (purchased from the local wood artist, Brian) and many happy memories.

    • Secluded atmosphere

      We had an amazing time. Great views, secluded atmosphere, secret walk to the beach.

      Perfect.

      Beautiful secluded home, very private with outstanding views of Seal Rock Beach and ocean. Everything you need is already there all you need is your suitcase, unpack, relax and enjoy the relaxing vacation home. Very peaceful with so many views of ocean, whales, sunsets. So central to the Oregon coast which makes traveling north or south of the coast home has easy access. Owners so very helpful so delightful to deal with many traveling suggestions, etc. So move on in and if your in this area add this house to your "bucket list" and you'll be glad you did for a very relaxing vacation.

    • Spectacular Sunsets

      Thank you for sharing your adorable beach home with us. The view is phenomenal. We loved the privacy and the amenities. Thank you for such a warm welcome (music & wine -how sweet!) A beautiful setting to celebrate 22 years of wedded bliss. The sunsets were spectacular.

      P.S. Loved the Guide Book created by Rob!

    • Tranquility

      We often forget the joy of tranquility and the slowing of life's pace. In this setting we are gratefully reminded, this is nothing like the ability to watch and hear the ocean - out on the deck or inside away from the dhill of the wind. It is one of the many gifts Oregon has given us - and this place has provided in abundance. We much appreciate the chance to experience Gullhouse.

    • Honeymoon Heaven

      What can I say ... my new husband and i spent the week here for our honeymoon and couldn't have stayed at a more perfect place! We expected stormy, rainy days and were delighted with a few absolutely beautiful sunny days! From the AMAZING views, cozy feel and friendly people, our first experience of the Oregon Coast will not be our last!

      Boise, Idaho

    • Oh, what a view!

      Loved the homey atmosphere, and oh what a view! Weather was supposed to be stormy but turned out great. Love the Coast!

    • Quiet Peacefulness

      I can start by saying "we don't want to leave this wonderful place." The Gullhouse has such a quiet peacefulness that you can't help but relax and savor your time here. Hot tub in the rain, sit and laugh over cocktails and just relax. Our time here was special and will not be forgotten. The roar of the ocean keeps everything quiet!

    • Seals and Starfish

      It's been cold and rainy most of the week, and still loving it! The house is perfect and we never tired of the view. The whales are not cooperating, but the seals and starfish sure are. Thanks for sharing this great place. Perfect for a family running all day and crashing at night. Your Things To Do guide is perfect!

    • Lovely, Lovely!

      Lovely, lovely place!

      Roar of the ocean, beautiful view, beautiful home with a spectacular view. Never felt like we needed to leave. So relaxing & inviting - hot tub and sunsets, walks on the beach - this place has it all. This anniversary will be one to remember!

    • A Great Introduction to Oregon

      The weather did not cooperate for most of the week but we were warned to prepare for rainy days and that's exactly what we did and had a blast exploring in the rain. A hot bowl of chowder (in search of the perfect recipe) quickly warmed us back up at the end of the day as well as the hot tub and it's beautiful view. I love the passion of the stormy seas and watched the waves crashing from the house every night. The sound was the last thing I heard at night and the first in the morning. The beach right in front of the house is perfect for exploring and the seals were fun to watch! Thank you Debi for answering so many of my questions in advance of our trip as it helped us prepare. The house is very comfortable and the kids loved going through the movie selection. We can't wait to come back!

      Owner Response: Bethany we are delighted that you and your family enjoyed our lovely (if wet) Oregon Coast! It sounds like you found the perfect way to enjoy its charm. We would love to welcome you back again! Debi & Rob

    • Words Cannot Express

      Wow! This place is absolutely amazing!! Words cannot express how much we enjoyed our stay here! We waited a long time to take our honeymoon and I'm so glad we did! It was truly worth the wait! Your beach house is so warm and inviting, and we have totally enjoyed our stay!

    • We've Seen Whales!

      Thank you, Deb & Rob!

      On the first night, I was freaking out because i thought I left my contact solution and case at our hotel in Portland. Then I found your bottle of solution (YAY!) and took your paper cups and put them in. Next morning I was hoping they didn't dry out...and then my mom walked out and said she found my contact stuff! I was so happy!

      The house has been AMAZING so far and we've seen whales!

    • Ten Seals and One Whale - Spotted from the Deck!

      My family the past 10 years has made the Oregon Coast our vacation spot. After years of bumpy beds and not so sweet bathrooms ... we have found the Gullhouse :)

      This view, the private location, and the whole house full of comfort like home was truly awesome!

      In our first 30 minutes we saw 10 seals ... 1 whale and several birds all from the deck! the weather was our friend all 4 days, we had wonderful mornings searching tide pools at Seal Rock and amazing afternoons - early evening at Lost Beach down the road only 4 minutes! We even saw a human mermaid doing a photo shoot on the rocks at low tide, said she left a 3 yr old daughter unattended on the beach but I stayed to keep an eye on her from a short distance! The ocean is swift - young mothers don't leave your precious gifts like that alone!!!

      The hot tub and movies ended the days, as every morn that view awaited. Thank you for a great place, it's awesome here.

    • Memorable Honeymoon

      Thank you so much for such a delightful plkace to stay. Our honeymoon couldn't have been better!!! We loved the cozy and relaxing atmosphere - truly the perfect place to start making memories as husband and wife. The hot tub was incredible. The views were amazing. We even spotted whales just offshore one morning! We definitively hope to visit again as we celebrate the joys that life has yet to bring.

      Thank you again for sharing the Gullhouse with us! May your lives always be filled with great happiness and peace!

    • Just Married!

      We come back for more! Thanks again for sharing your wonderful beach house! This place is great therapy. We had a wonderful wedding down on the beach and an awesome honeymoon here. Thanks for the wine & we did try the "Evil Brownies". There were more than evil, even seductive!

    • Hot Tub was Great!

      We had a great time here! The home has been very comfortable and the hot tub was great to have. We would definitely visit again if we are up this way. The kids loved the trail to the beach. We took some great pictures that we can send you. Even with all of our car troubles, we had an awesome, relaxing time.

    • Like Another Honeymoon

      Thanks for sharing your wonderful Gullhouse with us. What a great place to celebrate 20 years of marriage. It was like another honeymoon. We loved watching the waves on the rocks, late nights in the hot tub looking at stars, watching the sun set, and dancing in your living room. What great memories we will take with us and cherish over the upcoming years.

    • 25th Anniversary

      Thanks for a relaxing 2 days celebrating our 25th anniversary. We had such a relaxing time and appreciate all your extra touches in making this such a memorable time.

    • The View is Too Good To Leave!

      We had a wonderful time doing not much of anything. the house and the view are too good to leave. This was my most pleasant interaction with the ocean -- just watch it (and the seals!), walk on the beach occasionally, and retire to a warm comfortable vantage point. Blackberries are ripe!!

    • The Stars are like Christmas

      The beach brought our "pirate souls" to life - the hot tub at sunset was our Margaritaville - sleeping with the seagulls and the feel of salt air was amazing! Footnote: S family's official "Lighthouse Count" including the books in the Gullhouse was 171 - recount may be necessary - we were wine tasting and counting at the same time.

      "The Stars are Like Christmas"
      The Quietness is like Heaven."

      Olen and I (the parents) also got to enjoy your very comfy home and the spectacular view of the ocean and listening to the waves in the quiet of the night. I loved the comfortable bed, down pillow and comforter.

      The Driftwood King enjoyed his stay - and is now leaving the building. He leaves you a sea cairn he personally makes - hang and enjoy the beauty of his humble/peaceful people. Treat my people well -they bring good luck!

    • Across the Pond

      We've very much enjoyed our few days here, watching the waves, sunsets and (last night) seals.

      Our favorite day was going to Yachats and the Little Log Church (there's a beautiful Victorian crazy patchwork quilt there), then on to Cape Perpetua with it's views, Devil's Churn and blow hole. Lots of photos.

      Now we're off inland to see what Oregon has to offer along the Cascade Mountains.

    • Just Awesome

      Awesome. Just Awesome. My sister and I have had the best weekend. Gullhouse has everything you could need! The view is beyond words as is hearing the surf hit the beach. Going down to the beach at low tide is a must to see the tide pools! The hot tub at sunset -- BLISS!

      Staying here is good medicine.

    • Hooked!

      From the minute we opened the door to the softly playing music, we were hooked! Awesome place! We had a wonderful time and can't wait until we can come back.

    • Relaxing and Intimate

      We had a delightful visit, even though the weather didn't cooperate. Even on cold, rainy nights, the view was stunning. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing, intimate place to celebrate our anniversary. We're already looking forward to our next visit.

    • LOVED the Bathrobes!

      We rented the Gullhouse through Airbnb.com and had a WONDERFUL time! The house was so cozy, the view OUTSTANDING, and the hot tub HOT! We went climbing on rocks, explored tide pools, and even rented wet-suits since the water was still warm! The house was equipped with everything you could need. LOVED the bathrobes!

    • Everything was Perfect

      We had a wonderful time staying here. The house is so nice; everything was perfect.

      Traveled south some days and north other days. Staying here made our trip to the Oregon Coast - excellent!

    • Awesome Movie Selection

      We really enjoyed the house, the hot tub and the view! Your movie selection is awesome. We had fun going to Old Town Newport and the museums and hanging out in the hot tub looking at the moon and the stars. We cooked up some yummy stuffed mushrooms, crab cream cheese puffs and steamer clams.

      Great weekend for movie watching and hanging out with friends. So glad we came down here. This was an awesome 29th birthday. Hope to come back again. Also wish we had a king sized bed at home. The robes are a welcoming touch.

    • Thanksgiving Weekend

      It was awesome not having to leave the house to watch the ocean; what a priceless view! We too enjoyed the hot tub, playing games and watching movies. The house is very comfortable and had everything we needed.

      We loved the Yaquina Lighthouse and saw lots of seals there. We even took a little swim in the ocean!

    • Wonderful Family Rendezvous

      Beautiful weather! Checked out the tide pools every day. Had a wonderful family rendezvous. We came from NY, Montana and Alaska. A nice few days away from our winter

    • Thrilled!

      The surprise birthday weekend was great! We were thrilled with the view and the privacy! What a wonderful home you have ... thank you for sharing. We played in the tidepools and watched the seals. We even saw some dolphins! I've never seen so many starfish. We had fresh (and yummy) seafood everyday and got good restorative sleep. So many things to do here! We love it and plan to make this one of our "get aways".

      The hot tub is awesome!

    • Feels Like Home

      It rained 2 out of 4 days here but we had a blast! The hot tub is awesome and the house feels like home. We went to the beach every day (via the cool hidden trail) and collected all sorts of shells and rocks. We spied on the seals every day, too.

      We will certainly be back. We enjoyed celebrating our honeymoon here and hope to come back on some anniversaries.

      You have a great place here, thanks ...

    • 33rd Anniversary

      We loved staying here during our 33rd anniversary trip! You're so lucky to have found such a place to share with others. We had a great time hiking Cape Perpetua trails through the wildflowers to the stone shelter, getting great recipe ideas for the oysters we bought at Oregon Oyster Farms, clambering over the tide pools, and looking for satellites while soaking in the hot tub after sunset. We had such perfect weather too, we almost had a "green flash" sunset last night. The clouds were so far out on the horizon, we couldn't see them until the sun fell behind them. We'll have to make this an annual anniversary stay. Thank you sooo much!

      BTW - we also saw a resident gray whale in the cove while we were have a great dinner at Tidal Raves!

      We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent at Gull House celebrating our 25th anniversary -- it was very private, the hot tub was fantastic, and the view was beautiful! There is a private path leading from the house down to highway 101 where you can cross over to Seal Rock beach. We saw seals there almost every morning at low tide, and the tide pools are full of life and just beautiful. Seal Rock is a quiet, nice spot where you are within easy driving distance to so many scenic spots along the coast, as well as inland. Depoe Bay has some great whale watching, we would recommend Carrie at Ecoexcursions. She researches the gray whales and takes you out in a zodiac, which is a lot of fun! While you are there, try the great food at Tidal Raves. Also, Newport has a nice aquarium and a really good seafood restaurant called Sharks, (by the bay). Deb could not have been nicer; she made it easy to set everything up and was available by phone if we needed anything. She also gives you a great information sheet before you come with directions and lots of good recommendations about the area. The house is well stocked with everything you need in the kitchen, as well as toiletry items and paper products in the bathroom. The house is very clean and the beds are really comfortable. The binoculars and telescope in the living room are great for checking out the wildlife on the beach and in the water. We didn't see any whales at the house while we were there but spotted some from one of the Capes we visited, as well as in Depoe Bay, and of course, on the whale watching tour! Thanks Deb and Rob for sharing your cozy hideaway with us, we loved it and hope to return someday!

      We enjoyed our time here so much! Watching whales from the hot tub 'sneaking' through the secret pathway to the beach, eating dinner on the porch while we watched the sunset...could not have asked for a better spot for our honeymoon.

    • Review for The Gullhouse at Seal Rock

      Thank you for sharing. The house is great and the views gorgeous. What's not to love. The sound of surf to fall asleep and wake up to. Walks on the beach and tide pools. Candlelight and wine dinner on the deck. Chocolate dipped fruit and more wine. Romantic music and a sunset hot tub. Watching the changing tides and fishing boats at sea. Evil brownies and did I mention the hot tub? This was our 20th anniversary and we couldn't have made a better choice for a memorable occasion. Very comfortable. We burned a double cd of romance music for others to enjoy. Hope to return i the future to relive and add to these moments.

    • Review for The Gullhouse at Seal Rock

      Oh, what a wonderful week it has been! We had some sunny days and a few filled with drizzle. We soaked in the hot tub, ate like hogs and visited the seals. Went south to the Devil's Churn, then back north for lunch in Lincoln City. Expanded a few pant sizes at Dano's in Waldport. But mostly just enjoyed the company of each other among the most beautiful view we could ask for. It has been a fantastic honeymoon, and we can't thank you enough!

      This trip is part of an annual tradition (bday) with my twin sister and daughter. She gives us clues for weeks before the trip and we landed her first. It is our 56th birthday. This house is so wonderful, I'm in awe of the decor! From the starfish pillows to the shower curtain, etc...we are getting tattoo's today at "Crossover Tattoo's" in Newport and the adventure continues...this home made it with its energy and comfort. One of our weekly clues was "we will Seal the Deal!" Another week is was "Birds of a feather flock together" and I must say this place is great to bond with my sister & daughter. Thanks so much.

      "Memento Vivere." Remember to Live

      This is our second time here and it won't be our last. We just saw the best sunset we have ever seen before. We have traveled all over the world - we really have, but this Friday evening was truly eventful. It actually lasted several hours and the color got darker and richer. We have seen sunsets/rises in Bali, Indonesia, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Tahiti, Australia, Key West, Kenya. This Friday night surpassed them. I guess it is true - the best is yet to come -

      Thank you so much for sharing this place. It is truly special for a lot of reasons to a lot of people.
      "BEST SUNSET EVER!"

      Third time here. Love the comfy new couch!
      Got to see rain, hail, wind, lightning and sun. The moon setting on the ocean was amazing! Saw a bald eagle perched on the rocks with the scope, prior to leaving. He then majestically flew away. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us.

      A week in Seal Rock in late September was a great experience. A wonderful remote location, and easy to get to the local sites. Try to plan for the Tide pools (right across the road), it was an experience that I have not been able to describe to friends adequately. The owners were very helpful with our planning, and remedied any problems that arose. The Hot tub was not cooperating, but they had it fixed and maintained immediately…because yes the Hot Tub was awesome! Thank you, all the way from the East Coast, PA.

      Happy New Year to us! We had a wonderful relaxing time in your cozy home. My boyfriend took the initiative to surprise me with this get-away for New Years and...it was a real surprise. Weather was typical for coastal winter weather...cold and rainy, but the hot tub was greatly appreciated! I will always have fond New Year memories.

      Thanks so much for allowing us to enjoy your home. We had a nice break from the winter in Kansas - we even enjoyed a cold swim with the seals. The family had a relaxing time just watching the ocean from the family room and spa.

      What a beautiful view and cozy home for our first trip to the Oregon Coast! We had a great time swimming with the seals and then warming up in the spa! Thank you for opening up your home to us.

      Thanks for such an amazing place to escape from all the snow and ice in Portland. We had a wonderful time checking out the local sites & attractions. The hot tub was definitely a highight. We would love to come back again.

      November - What privacy - and yet a view that everyone would come running to see. We especially loved our night uder the stars (in the hot tub of course!) The clarity and brilliance was amazing - no clouds! At least for one night. Your generosity with your home & sharing of all your provisions was amazing - so well stocked. Thanks! We thoroughly enjoyed oursels and will return.

      We got so lucky re: weather, every day was sunny & beautiful. At one point I was looking for the porch light-switch so I could turn off the light only to realize it was the moon! The pelicans & eagles were so wonderful to see. We eve got to watch the Coast Guard rescue a disabled boat; the telescope really was nice so we could watch all the action. We were disappointed we didn't see any seals but on the last day they graced us with their presence, there were several sunning on the rocks. We enjoyed the hot tub & never got around to using the jaccuzi tub in the bathroom. You have done a nice job with the new carpet, skylights, etc. What a cozy home you have. Thank you so much for sharing.

      What a fabulous home with an unbelievable view. Christine and I had a truly enjoyable stay and loved the whole "Oregon Coast" feel and experience. We were treated to a terrific winter storm with great high tides and storm surge. Our rain jackets got a workout. The house was all we could have asked for, very comfortable, warm and quiet.

      The hot tub was also very well used, but with hats on during the rainy times. Thanks so much.

      We arrived Friday after dark and didn't realize till morning how close to the beach it was. The view is beyond beautiful, it's breathtaking. That night my husband kept trying to turn down the heat to get rid of the noise. He finally realized that the noise was the surf, not the heater. The noise took on a whole new meaning after that.

      We mostly relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful view, great decor and homey atmosphere. To say we had a pleasant time is a uderstatement! Thank you for sharing and supplying EVERYTHING, even q-tips & movies & spices! We hope to enjoy your place again.
