We enjoyed the stay!
|Colette (review from Airbnb)|
|This house is so great. We got it for a group of friends long weekend and we loved the easy access to a pretty private part of the beach. The house is amazing with countless amenities and gorgeous views. Toby was incredible responsive both before and during the rental with any questions we had. Highly recommend!|
|Long Beach haven!>|
|We go to the coast every year and Ocean Trail is our favorite rental yet! You can really tell that Toby puts so much thought and care into this rental. We have 2 teen boys and my sister has 3 boys, ages 8 and under and this was perfect for all! Lots of space to spread out. The landscaping is beautiful. The HUGE grassy yard was a bonus for sure; we had a few sunny days and just relaxed in the grass with our pup, played yard games, and even flew our kites there. Quick walk to the beach, quick drive to town, even took a lovely scenic drive to Astoria. But really preferred to just hang at the house. My husband loved the steam shower in our room and game garage to store his e-bike and OneWheel, I loved the real plants throughout the home and the warm outdoor showers for after beach time. I also appreciated the thorough house handbook and simple checkout instructions/expectations. All you need to pack is food and clothes. This truly feels like your besties loaned you their beach house for a few days. Amazing, hope to book again!|
|Jessica M. (review from Vrbo)|
|We were a large multi-generational family group (3 to 60) and this was perfect! Things were clean, well organized and there were plenty of games and yard activities to enjoy together as well as outdoor areas if folks needed a bit of quiet alone time to recharge. I can’t say enough about the host, who was always responsive. 10/10 would stay there again|
|Once again my family and I had a wonderful, relaxing time in your beautifully decorated, and landscaped home. The beach access is wonderful. We did miss the driftwood arbor that leads to the path.Not sure if the wind was responsible for it not being there.One of my favorite things to do is listen to the sound of the ocean from the upstairs master suite. It was quite soothing and I slept very well. One request my daughter made was more paper supplies (paper towels, toilet paper)or maybe we just weren’t looking in the correct cupboards. Looking forward to booking again next summer. Thanks!|
|Anonymous (review from Vrbo)|
I absolutely loved the location and the house. Just perfect for a friends vacation. Had so many activities to keep the kids and adults busy: board games, video games, yard games, beach, town, and don't forget the hot tub. One of the best rentals we have ever stayed in. House was very clean and organized, and had a lot more amenities than any other place I've stayed.
Absolutely would come back again.
|Annie (review from Airbnb)|
|Nothing really to add that hasn’t been said, except the fast WiFi was really great for friends who had to work during the week. Excellent spot, we took notes on the mattresses in the rooms because they were so comfortable :) Really couldn’t ask for anything more, probably the best organized and luxurious Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in :)|
|Terri T. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful and Comfortable>|
|This home matches the pictures! Beautiful and comfortable. The house is well equipped and “user friendly”. We were able to cook and enjoy meals together at the large dining table. We made good use of the game room! We were thrilled to watch the resident eagles along the beach. Check in was easy. We will be back!|
|Ian (review from Airbnb)|
|Great house! Comfortable beds and easy beach access. The number of board games and lawn games was incredible. The added video game systems was a great bonus. Amazing space. Highly recommend.|
|Brenda C. (review from Vrbo)|
|Lovely and well-organized house>|
|Beautiful. Almost everything you could mess. High-end. Comfortable.|
|Colleen (review from Airbnb)|
This home is one of the most comfortable and tastefully furnished homes we’ve stayed. It’s welcoming and warm with live plants and art in every room.
The bedrooms are exceptionally furnished with amazing beds and nice linens. Taking a steam in the lower master is a joy. Or perhaps you prefer a soak in the hot tub or a bath in the upstairs jetted tub.
There is something for everyone from playing pool or the video arcade or a family game in the game room. My grandsons’ particularly liked waking up in their bunks and sneaking video game time.
We spent more time playing games on the expansive yard that’s lined with pots of flowers than going to the beach. However, If you like to sit and watch the surf roll in you must sit in an upstairs bedroom to see the ocean out past a grassy dune.
The entire home is stocked with everything you need for entertainment and cooking meals. There’s an obvious pride of ownership. Toby is friendly, communicative and responds promptly. We will be back. ❤️
|A wonderful weekend for the books!>|
|We absolutely loved staying here! Such an effortless process to reserve, check in and simply just arrive. What a luxury experience. The home is absolutely gorgeous! Its even difficult to select a room! Spacious! In excellent condition! Equipped with everything you could possibly think of and more! The weather went from rain to beautiful sunshine and there was never a dull moment from playing games, to playing catch on the back lawn, yes I said LAWN! To relaxing in the evening in the hot tub, snacking in smores! Proclaimed an annual event for our family!! Looking no further than to our beach vacations right HERE!|
|Catherine H. (review from Vrbo)|
|This was our second year of staying in Ocean Trail, a beautiful home on Long Beach Peninsula. Our group consisted of four adults and three children under four years old. It rained throughout our stay (with occasional sun breaks), but we always had plenty to keep us occupied. With a game room and TVs in every room, as well as Easter prep, we stayed busy. The kitchen is fantastic with several types of coffee machines, as well as many other machines for any purpose you might imagine (juicer, tea, mixer, toaster, waffle maker, etc.). At night we adjourned to our upstairs primary suite with a glass of wine to sit in the Scandinavian lounge chairs and watch the sunset. Very relaxing. There were more than enough bedrooms for our group. There are many beautiful houseplants throughout. We look forward to a vacation here next year.|
|Angela (review from Airbnb)|
|House is more than expected! Pictures are completely accurate! Would highly recommend this vacation rental. We would definitely rebook again! Excellent views, house interior gorgeous and roomy! Walking distance to the beach! Upgraded appliances and tons of room and games for family fun night!|
|Gordon/Margaret P. (review from Vrbo)|
|nice house room for everyone clean would stay again>|
|nice house lots of room childr3en like the game room|
|Kevin (review from Airbnb)|
|This house was awesome. Not only was it beautiful and spacious with multiple bedrooms for a large group, but this house was THE MOST ORGANIZED AirBnB we've ever stayed in. Everything was labeled, in clear and logical locations, and Toby made everything easy to find and easy to use. He has multiple styles of fun beer and wine glasses, lots of different plates, bowls, pots and pans, and kitchen utensils. The TV's and remotes and sound bars were easy to figure out, he has drawers upon drawers of DVD movies organized by genre (!!), and a beautiful game room filled with board games and puzzles and a cool hexagonal table. The pool table in the "garage" was fun for the older kids (and for us), and the showers in the bedrooms were luxurious and beautiful. The beds and sheets were also exceptional, we slept really well every night -- he spared no expense to make this home a VERY comfortable get-away. Also - he communicated the day before to make sure we were good, then left us alone. A+|
|Kshamta (review from Airbnb)|
|What a gorgeous location … easy walk down to an almost private beach! The amenities, including the hot tub (which we made great use of in 30 degree weather!), the steam shower, the arcade games and other video games made for an enjoyable and relaxing weekend getaway! The beds were extremely comfortable, and the kitchen well stocked. We received easy check-in instructions and we felt right at home here!|

|Family celebration with ages from 14-82>|
|We have stayed at many rental houses over many years and this was by far the top one. It was extremely clean and well equipped with everything you can imagine, even dog toys, and a dog game. All of the appliances are top end and everything is labeled so you know exactly where things go. There are televisions everywhere in the house, the beds were very comfortable, the game room was a great hit with our teenage grandsons as well as us older folks. It’s also in a wonderful location with easy access to the beach. I give it the highest rating, and do not hesitate in recommending it to others. Thank you, Toby, for such a pleasant stay .|
|Even better than the pictures!>|
|This house is fantastic. We've rented this house, along with an adjacent property, for the last two years for group gatherings, and it has been perfect for our needs. We all feel so spoiled to be in such a luxurious home. It's not one of those homes that just looks nice in pictures. This place is even better than the pictures show. The beds are excellent, everything feels clean, and every single thing has a place where it belongs. There has been much attention to detail to make this place great for a large group. I highly recommend this place!|
|Dominique G. (review from Vrbo)|
|Excellent house for a group>|
|Husband and I stayed here with a group of friends for new years and it was an excellent spot for us! It’s a short walk to the beach, the hot tub is in a spot where you actually want to hang out and there is plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. Would absolutely book here again.|
|Carla S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful space for Family Gathering>|
|This was the home we choose for our Christmas family gathering (10 of us). My goodness, what a well designed space for everyone! The kitchen has everything...I mean everything and so organized. I only wish my own kitchen was half as organized. The bedrooms have the most comfy beds, the 2 large master suites were wonderful. The only down side was the weather. The rain, wind, cold and one night the power went out ! There was a major winter storm that was blowing through, but we all felt safe and well protected in this beautiful home. Some day we hope to actually spend time on the beach...no one can predict the weather, but this home and the great communication from Toby was nothing but top notch!|
|Another great stay>|
|We have been staying at homes with beachhousewa since 2020. We have loved the properties, and this one does not disappoint.! We love the space the house offers, the access to the beach, and the hot tub! We also love being provided with all the extras we need to make our stay comfortable.|
|Margie (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby's home was the perfect location for a family holiday with our adult children and their families. The house was beautiful and more than easily accommodated our 3 groups. The location couldn't have been better and the house had every amenity we could have wanted. Toby was by far the most helpful and responsive host we've ever had and we can't recommend this home highly enough. Thank you for a perfect stay.|
|Adam (review from Airbnb)|
|Tobys house is an absolute gem. Some friends and I had a few days off and were able to stay at his place right on the beach. Everything was as well kept and clean as you could ever imagine. There were more games that we could play and every kitchen gadget possible. The beds were comfortable with great views of the ocean. Thanks Toby!|

|Long Beach house>|
|We love this place|
|Carrie (review from Airbnb)|
|This is an amazing house for medium to large groups to stay in. A lot of rooms and every single one is comfortable, has a television in it and everything is labeled so that you know exactly where everything goes and truly the house has everything! It’s right on the ocean with a beautiful path straight there! An excellent place to stay!|
|Great House, You Won’t Want to Leave>|
|All the amenities and supplies you need for an awesome stay. Comfortable large bedrooms, fully stocked kitchen, plenty of entertainment (indoor and outdoor games, movies, outdoor fireplace, beach access from house). We had sunny days so we’re able to enjoy the big yard and yard games. You really won’t need to bring anything but yourself and personal belongings. The house just has… everything. The table for 12 was great for family style dinners every night as well.|
|Alex (review from Airbnb)|
|Amazing house! Definitely staying here again.|
|Karen T. (review from Vrbo)|
|Summer Holiday House>|
|Awesome home in an extraordinary location. Toby made sure everything went without a hitch, with great communication beginning to end. We couldn’t be more grateful.|
|Brina B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Our stay was nice. The sprinklers during the day all day were completely annoying!!>|
property was nice and spacious. However, it did some simple up keep maintenance. The outside sprinkler system was set to go off during the day, all day long, which was very annoying, and disruptive to those playing and relaxing outdoors.
Not only do I maintain the house religiously, but I am constantly improving and upgrading. I fixed the loose faucet you messaged me about when you checked out (as you requested). I had the landscaper adjust the irrigation schedule once I was made aware of the issue. I am sorry this annoyed you.
|Ann B. (review from Vrbo)|
|We had a great family vacation! The location as well as the house and amenities were perfect. The house was clean and stocked with everything we needed. Everything was organized and easy to find/use. My 2 grandsons (8 yr olds) loved going to the beach every day followed by an outdoor shower & hot tub time. The adults enjoyed that too! Thank you Toby!|
|Raynette R. (review from Vrbo)|
|The home was perfect for our annual family vacation. There was plenty of room for our group of 10. The home is very comfortable and felt like home away from home. Great beach access, fire pit and game rooms.|
|yang l. (review from Vrbo)|
|Very nice place to stay, clean and full loaded kitchen and a lot of other things!|
|Mark K. (review from Vrbo)|
|Aside from the fact that this is a beautiful home, the beach (trail) access is ideal. We had a hard time leaving Thursday. Deer, eagles, sandpiper babies...very cool. The only negative thing was the folks driving around town and back-and-forth on the beach with flags displaying obscene words. The property owner (Toby) is on-top of everything. Highly recommend.|
|Jill (review from Airbnb)|
|Wow, what a great house for our family’s get together. We had a fabulous time. The host has thought of every detail. Super organized and responsive to questions. If you are looking for a place to gather and have fun on Long Beach I can’t recommend this enough. The walk to the beach was short and all the kids had a wonderful time.|
|Ross L. (review from Vrbo)|
With multiple bedrooms with en-suites and others with king size beds, this is a great house for multiple families.
Very well equipped, with tons on available activities.
|Matthew (review from Airbnb)|
|Great space. Very great details and organization. We got hit with rain and with most air bnb it would have really been unfortunate for the stay, but because of the quality of the indoor stay, the fomfoet of the home and the amazing game selection we were able to find ways to enjoy ourselves.|
|Catherine J H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Wonderful Family Easter Trip>|
|Our extended family visits this beach each Easter, and this house was perfect for me, my three sons under the age of three, my parents, my adult brother and his partner. I didn’t have the right baby gate for the doorway between the kitchen and entry hall (one side would be a 50” gate and the other would be a more standard 29”, but both are easily available, I just left my extensions at home in the shuffle.) The kitchen dining area had space for three high chairs and five adults and the main dining area had space for four high chairs, my two adult cousins, my aunt and uncle, plus our five adults. We walked to the beach daily, the views from the house were awesome, there were Apple TV’s right where we needed them, the laundry room was handy, and there was plenty of outdoor paved space for kids to ride trikes. The kitchen was well appointed and we didn’t lack for a tool or plate. There were two master bedrooms for the couples and the bedroom I stayed in had a nice view and was very comfortable. There were rooms that fit two pack and plays for the little babies and the lower bunk of the bunk room was perfect for my 2 year old (I put the steps on the top bunk.) We have reserved it again for next Easter and I’m hoping to talk the friendly owner into putting a blind on the window in the two queen bed room so I can have my three boys in there next year without them waking up with the sun. He was very responsive to all our questions and I had a pleasant experience with him. I left a load of laundry in the dryer and he was able to mail them back to me in a short period of time, which was much appreciated. My brother and his partner used the game room daily for remote work and all of us adults would get together in there and at the kitchen dining table to play games after the kids were asleep. My 2yo got his first experience with clamming by walking the short trail to the beach behind the house. He loved it! I highly recommend this house for a trip with a group of adults or a family.|
|Caitie (review from Airbnb)|
|This was our second trip to one of Toby’s Long Beach properties, and we love coming out here! Toby is a fantastic host with great communication, and truly provides anything we could need or want, and more! The property the house is on was absolutely beautiful with incredible views right on the beach. The house has amazing luxury accommodations with beautiful bathrooms and really nice beds that make you feel so spoiled while you’re there. We had such a relaxing and fun time, we can’t wait to come back!|
|Really great, well appointed home! Highly recommend!|
|Jennifer M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Can't imagine a better place to enjoy the beach!>|
|We absolutely loved our stay. During our stay there was a lot of cold, windy and typical early Spring weather. This did not impact our stay at all because there were so many things to stay entertained with. The garage is filled with games that can be enjoyed for all ages. The house has sooo many board games, movies, game stations, etc. that we were never bored. The hot tub was clean and was a nice getaway from the cold weather. The access to the beach was quick and easy for us to enjoy. The views from the upstairs bedrooms were perfect!! The beds were super comfortable and the house was very clean. The kitchen came stocked with every tool you could ever want to use and even some surprise spices and baking items. We cannot wait to book our next stay!!|
|Brandon (review from Airbnb)|
|Jamie K. (review from Vrbo)|
|Amazing house for group>|
|This house was fantastic! We have stayed in many Vrbo homes, this one truly was fully stocked. You can bring your food and clothing and everything else is provided. If you are wondering if they have it - they do! Hairdryers, curling irons, kids toys, games, TVs, video games, clam buns, beach chairs, towels, list goes on. House was perfect layout for a group of families. We really enjoyed our stay! You can tell the owner takes pride in the home and they were super responsive. Would 10/10 recommend!|
|Shad (review from Airbnb)|
|Great place to stay! Host is awesome!|

|Walk to the BEACH :)>|
|This house was exactly what was described. Owner was in communication of any changes or updates. Walking distance to the beach was a plus. Plenty for room for the whole family. We enjoyed our stay.|
|Sydney (review from Airbnb)|
|Excellent location, clean, organized and great communication with Toby.|
|Debra L. (review from Vrbo)|
|Property is well kept and well managed. We were happy with the attention to detail and how well stocked the kitchen was.|
|Ryan D. (review from Vrbo)|
|Excellent Place for a Group>|
|We rented this home for use as a large group of adults as a part of an adult church retreat, and it was an excellent spot for our group. The rooms and furnishings are all very nice, the beds are comfy, and the kitchen had everything we could need and more. I don't know that I've ever seen a home so well-labeled, in terms of where each item belongs, which is actually really helpful. And the location, of course, was also great. We plan to make this our yearly rental location for an annual gathering.|
|Anthony (review from Airbnb)|
|The private entrance to the beach...Ample space for individuals and couples...Endless amounts of kitchen utensils and serveware. A healthy stock of board games in a dedicated game room! These are some of the highlights of our stay. Toby was great on both proactive and reactive communication.|
|Renee W. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great house for large families!>|
|Our large family chose this house for our annual Christmas getaway and loved it! So well appointed and so well stocked and labeled! Beds are super comfy and bedrooms are spacious. Toby was very responsive before during and after our stay. Even the hot tub was super clean and worked great! Highly recommend this property.|
|Vinesh L. (review from Vrbo)|
|Wonderful Experience in a Great house!!!!>|
|We had a great experience at this house. It is a clean, extremely well-stocked house with lots of entertainment. Great views from the Master bedroom upstairs as well as the kitchen and living rooms downstairs. Multi-level decks, outdoor fireplace, hot tub makes it a great experience. Pool tables and other amenities is just an added bonus. The owner is very personable and extremely responsive. The house rules may come across as strict on the website, but if you just obey the rules and take care of the property as any responsible person would, there will be no problems! We definitely will be back!!!|
|Julie (review from Airbnb)|
|Such an amazing place! Absolutely loved it!! 😍|
|Maureen M. (review from Vrbo)|
|This is a great home to spend a family gathering, very spacious, well equipped kitchen, lots of lounging space, large dining room table, and kitchen table which we set up a large puzzle on, wonderful game room. We did not use the garage space with pool table. If you are staying in the colder months there is only outside access to it and it is not a heated area. I would like to rent this property in the summer when we could spend time outside. Hot tub was nice. I had some questions and Toby got back to me right away. We are 5 couples with small children and it is so nice to have so many bedrooms with queen or king sized beds. Thank you Toby!|
|The house and location are perfect in every way! Thank you so much! Can't wait to go back.|
|Great fall family trip to the beach>|
|Our families second trip to this home and we love it. Easy access to the beach and tons of room for our family, or dog and grandma and grandpa. Something for everyone to do. The game room is great, the video game system was a hit, and if you haven’t tried a steam shower you’re really missing out. Our family was here during an open clam season and everyone managed to limit in less than an hour. Fantastic property! The owner Toby is an excellent host and is very responsive to any questions as well! We have visited many vacation rentals and my wife and I agree this one has the best set up we have been too. It is completely stocked and well cared for. Enjoy your time here!|
|Lori (review from Airbnb)|
|This house and location on the beach are amazing. The house is furnished with everything you can imagine (numerous games, every possible kitchen utensil, dishes/glasses, beach chairs, wagon, etc.). Great place for a large family of all ages, this was our 2nd visit. Highly recommended!|
|Greg (review from Airbnb)|
What to expect:
A perfect beach house destination for a large group.
The property is secured in a gated community. The check-in experience is easy and an itinerary is prepared for you in advance. There are no unfortunate surprises here.
The home is appointed for a complete beach experience as well as some pleasant luxuries. The game room full of puzzles and board games was a blast. Supplies are available for bonfire and a picnic on the beach. I do suggest bringing firewood.
The kitchen is very well appointed. Everything from a margarita mixer to a perfect pancake griddle is at hand. The fridge has an ice maker and filtered water. The dishwasher had plenty of soap.
The bedrooms all have their unique touches and the beds are extremely comfortable. The view from the second story master as world class
8 to 10 guests will fill this house but wont feel cramped. This beach house makes a great destination even in foul weather.
|Jacob B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Very well stocked house.>|
|We had a great weekend. House was clean and well stocked with entertainment options. Short walk to the beach. Would book again.|
|Emily (review from Airbnb)|
|We had a great time. Lovely, well-appointed house. Loved the views from the second floor. Loved that everyone had a luxurious room to stay in. Thanks for the great communication - everything was clear and straightforward|
|Keith (review from Airbnb)|
|Wonderful, huge house with room for everyone to spread out. Lots to do inside and out. Great views of the Pacific Ocean from three of the upstairs bedrooms, and utensils and appliances you didn't think you ever needed. This was an exceptional house in a great location for an extended family retreat!|
|Michael (review from Airbnb)|
Chef's kitchen, every tool anyone could want......
Bathrooms are insane and the sitting area's in the bedrooms are awesome....

|I have stayed in a ton of VRBO's and this house by far is the most stocked, fully loaded and accommodating. Highly recommend.|
|Deborah (review from Airbnb)|
|Beautiful home that has everything you could possibly think of. It has the most organized kitchen I’ve ever seen. Also, I think our kids enjoyed hanging out in the house more than going to the beach LOL - game room, tons of movies, the arcade game. They were in heaven! Definitely recommend this home to others.|
|Barb N. (review from Vrbo)|
|Very nice accommodations, everything we needed.>|
|Would love to come back!|
|April K. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great family beach house!>|
|We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Ocean Trails. The house was spotless and welcoming. We had all that we needed in the kitchen (and then some). The beds were comfortable and the baths luxurious. The young kids and the big kids in our group all enjoyed the video game options. The beach was just a 3-5 minute walk over a private trail. I loved the walk itself - the scents of ocean, grass and flowers were wonderful. We saw wildlife. There was a bald eagle that perched on a nearby pole, deer, a hawk and couple of coyotes. Everyone agreed that this was the best family beach vacation ever.|
|Stacy W. (review from Vrbo)|
|Wonderful Family Vacation>|
We had a wonderful family vacation. It was a beautiful house that was well stocked, big, comfortable, and relaxing. The beds were very comfy but some of the bedding smelt like they didn’t get dried all the way. The house was a great location and close walk to the beach. The hot tub was nice. The house is having some repairs done which would have been nice to know along with a list of previous damages/repairs being done so we didn’t have to bother the owner. Also when we got to the house for check in the cleaners were still there cleaning and doing laundry. They were there for another two hours, which was out of the owners control but kind of irritating. The owner was very responsive, which was nice. We would definitely stay again especially with the spacious rooms and numerous rooms and amazing views.
Unfortunately sometime life gets in the way and the experience is not as perfect as I would like it to be. I appreciate the very honest review and the fact that Stacy was able to overlook some of the initial hiccups and appreciate all that this home has to offer. (I have told my housekeepers that I’d much rather that they stay late than leave on time with the job half done, unfortunately sometimes the house is left in such a manner that this is required)

|We loved this beautiful home on the beach! The house had lots of thoughtful extras and fun games!! Location is close to restaurants and activities. We’d love to stay again!!|
|Lisa H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great beach house, close to town>|
|We had a great time and used the game room which has tons of board games. There is a short walk to beach. Awesome kitchen with lots of appliances and huge island. House was very clean! Lots of places on main level for family hangout and garage had pool, foosball and other games. Owner was quick to respond with any questions.|
|Jonathan D. (review from Vrbo)|
|We so enjoyed our beach getaway in this home. All the rooms had beautiful high quality beds and bedding (even the bunks). Probably best stocked place we have stayed. All the kitchen gadgets you could think of or need. Beach toys. Tons of extra blanket and towels. Loved the gated community aspect. We left bikes and other items outside overnight without second thought. Very quiet neighborhood. Had small amount of correspondence with the owner and he was always quick to respond. Would recommend and definitely stay again.|
|Tzvi K. (review from Vrbo)|
|This house is amazing!>|
WOW! This house has everything you need, just bring your clothes. And I mean E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G! All the glasses you need in all their varieties, new washing machine and dryer, beach towels (!), a game room with an amazing collection of board and social games, xbox/PS and DVD/BR in every room, with a very impressive collection of games and movies, and an arcade machine in the living room (it was out of service during our stay so can't comment on the experience but it looks great), great hot tub right outside, a garage playroom with pool table and foosball, and packed with fun outdoor games (the kids loved playing them outside, and there was even a kite that we all had fun flying around at the beach). ice cream machine, mixer, popcorn maker, and a lot of other kitchen appliances for all your needs (and much beyond). A couple of minutes walk to the beautiful beach. BTW, don't miss the steam shower in the downstairs master bedroom, it is a dream! (I'm getting myself one of those :)
I highly recommend this property if you plan a trip in the area.
|Christina V. (review from Vrbo)|
|A Fantastic Family Gathering>|
|We were all incredibly happy with our stay at the beach house. The accommodations were top-notch. For the first time, I didn't have to listen to complaints of uncomfortable beds or lack of supplies from anyone! Toby set up a vacation spot that had everything to please all- we were able to use the kitchen to preare gourmet meals. Wish we could have stayed longer!|
|Keisha M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Perfect Luxurious Getaway>|
We rented this home for Memorial weekend and it truly exceeded our expectations. The features this house provides are far from standard, we especially enjoyed all the lawn games, video games, hot tub, steam shower and vast supply of board games. Everything is labeled and has a place for it to be stored.
The owner was very communicative and gave us thorough instructions of the check in and the check out process.
The views and beach access were also a great feature of the home. I took my pup to the beach everyday where she was able to run around and chase the waves.
Highly recommend this property.
|Greg (review from Airbnb)|
|Very nice, private location with excellent access to the beach and ocean. Very comfortable space for a large group. Bedrooms are good sized and most everyone in our family said the beds were the most comfortable they had ever slept on. The upstairs master has amazing views of the ocean. Whole house is well organized and is stocked with everything you can possibly image.|

|Our family group of 8 gathered at this home to say goodbye to our mom. It was a wonderful location, with a easy path through the dunes to the beach. The home was large enough where everyone could have their own space while at the same time we had options for being altogether in the living and playing areas. The steam shower was awesome! This home is well equipped with just about anything you may need. The one suggestion we had was that it needed a set of steak knives.|

|Awesome place for family getaway>|
|This place was clean and well-equipped. Super close to the beach and plenty of fun stuffs in the house. Quick response from the host if you have any questions. Overall, it was a great stay for family getaway.|
|Tyler (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby’s place was a great getaway. So many great amenities, incredible views and so many options for your day.|
|Terri (review from Airbnb)|
|Outstanding location! The owner has thought of everything! The beds are incredibly comfortable with hotel quality linens. You will find everything you need and more in the kitchen. The location on the beach is perfect!|

|Great home, great location.|

|Great Attention to Detail>|
|Our stay was wonderful. The house was well stocked and well cared for. Gorgeous location and beautiful home. The internet was a little hit or miss but for most people staying here that wouldn't be an issue and it's hard to get a good wifi connection in some of those places on the coast. Overall we loved our stay, had plenty of space for everyone to work independently and we came home feeling refreshed. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!|
|Glenn W. (review from Vrbo)|
|We had a very nice stay. The house is very orderly, and the kitchen is well equipped. The two master bedrooms are really nice. Easy to walk path to the beach. Owner was quick to respond to any communication. We had an enjoyable time.|
|Andy (review from Airbnb)|
|Very nice location with plenty of space. Close to the beach. Would stay here again for sure|
|Suzy (review from Airbnb)|
|We had a blast—the house is incredibly well appointed. Toby has thought of every detail! We cooked fabulous meals, had beach fires, hot tubs, played pool and ping pong, played video games, watched movies, grilled fresh oysters from oysterville, slept well thanks to high quality mattresses and bedding, and laughed our heads off. What a special trip with our graduating teens and his besties since kindergarten! We only wish we had more time.|
|Emily (review from Airbnb)|
|This was a great place to stay. Loved the view! The house is open and spacious which made the stay very easy with kids. We had a few questions during our stay and Toby answered within minutes every time.|
|Precious G. (review from Vrbo)|
|We enjoyed the quiet and peaceful surroundings.|
|Melissa (review from Airbnb)|
Wonderful home! Would be great for a family reunion - two masters, bunk beds for kids, a hot tub!, private trail to the beach, no complaints! Hope to come back in the future.
Toby was very responsive with the issue we had and it was resolved within an hour of check-in.
Steam shower was heavenly as well!
Consider this a rave!! :)

|Perfect Beach Getaway>|
|The property was amazing and just as described. The house is huge and immaculate! I can not rave enough about the bathrooms in this place! Huge showers and a fancy steam shower. It was all amazing and would highly recommend! The hot tub was perfect as well and in perfect maintenance. Thank you for a great stay!|

|Beautiful well-equipped home. Luxury bedding and and decor. Well appointed kitchen and plenty of entertainment items to keep you happy on a rainy day.|
|Melissa R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great house built for hosting. Large spaces, nicely equipped kitchen and games room, this is a special property in an amazing beach. You are isolated yet close to all the Pennisula has to offer.|
|Rena H. (review from Vrbo)|
|We had a great time in this beautifully maintained home. Would definitely stay again.|
|Loren (review from Airbnb)|
|This place is in a great location to enjoy the Long Beach area. The home is very nice and has everything you could need to enjoy a relaxing time watching waves. Also, there were some Bald Eagles hanging on the beach which was very cool. Great place to stay.|
|Hiroshi (review from Airbnb)|
We really enjoyed our stay at Toby's place.
Great location, beautiful house. The amenities were well thought and there were everything we need. Toby was very helpful throughout our stay.
|Alexandra (review from Airbnb)|
|Stunning home, relaxing atmosphere, thoughtful home touches, breathtaking views, great host! The comfortable space you can only dream of to accommodate a large family get together. 10/10 recommend, looking forward to booking again.|
|Arlene (review from Airbnb)|
|Our stay was good and could have been great had it not been for the poor communication prior to the trip. Three and a half weeks before our trip host Toby called to ask me if I would arrive one day later (come 3 days for minimum 4 day reservation) so he could use his house for Christmas. I declined knowing guests already took time off from work. The following week I asked to arrive one day later or cancel because one family of 6 in our group couldn't come due to Covid. Toby refused to refund one day or allow cancellation even though Airbnb made Covid exceptions. It's also not child friendly when a 2 year old pays as an adult. Dampened spirits lead to missed arrival details but we made the most of our trip.|
|Alicia E. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful and quiet getaway>|
|The home was lovely and it was the perfect spot for a quiet getaway. Proximity to the beach was excellent. The home was large enough for each individual in our group to have their own space when we wanted. Everything with the rental process went smoothly and I appreciated the care the homeowner put into detailing expectations and instructions. The decor and comforts were thoughtfully incorporated. Overall a great experience!|
|Michael D. (review from Vrbo)|
|Long Beach stay for the third time.>|
We had 8 adults and 2 infants, all had a good time and Thanksgiving.
The arcade machine was out of service as was the ice maker. A few light bulbs were out in the chandelier over the formal dining table.
Overall this is a nice house for a family gathering.
|Lori (review from Airbnb)|
|Highly recommend this home and location! The house is equipped with every convenience, has a beautiful view and is a short walk to the beach. Our stay was a “10”!|

|Greg (review from Airbnb)|
|This is a beautiful home filled with so many amenities and wonderful little touches. You will love everything from the access to the beach, to the fully appointed kitchen and master bedrooms. The location is quiet and relaxing.|
|Gregory (review from Airbnb)|
|We had an amazing time at this beach house. The house had everything we could possibly need and we loved the kitchen with quality amenities. Also the beach right out back was perfect for the kids. Will definitely be booking again.|
|Julie D. (review from Vrbo)|
|Nearly perfect, except...>|
This is a beautiful spot, in a private neighborhood, with a killer view of the coast. But it has seen better days. Don't get me wrong, we definitely enjoyed our stay. The owner was responsive to communication, and the location was ideal being so close to town, while feeling secluded at the same time. But to be honest, we were surprised to find the place looking as worn around the edges as it was. When you pay these kinds of rates, you expect things to be kept up well. The exterior needs a lot of clean up from the inevitable grime, rust and lost siding.
All in all, it was a great get-away. But the house would really benefit from having a week off from guests to get some much-needed TLC.
The house is slated for new siding this spring, and the inside is pristine. Thank you for your kind comments and constructive criticism.
|Brandon (review from Airbnb)|
So much to do! Very well organized with activities for all ages. Private beach access is amazing.
But my favorite feature is the spa-like steam shower in the downstairs master. Set the temp of the steam to 100+, and turn the shower heads to cool or cold. It’s like standing under a rainforest waterfall. The hot tub under the stars isn’t too bad either :).
Kids loved the arcade game — and the adults too. It seemed like someone was playing pretty continuously.
Highly recommend staying here for large family or group of friends.
|Alvina B. (review from Vrbo)|
|The house was amazing. Everyone enjoyed there stay. The rooms where clean and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need. Very quiet and relaxing. The beach was beautiful.|

|Escape to the coast!>|
|We escaped the smoke and were so lucky to find this gem! It was so well appointed, great location and Toby was a fabulous host. Loved it and will hopefully be back!|
|Travis S. (review from Vrbo)|
|From the cleanliness of the home to the organization of the stay to the serenity of the location, this was a much needed break from day to day. We stayed during the unprecedented poor air quality from the Oregon/CA/WA wildfires but there was so much to do inside this home that we didn't miss a beat. Thank you for the Fantastic Getaway!|
|Yemsrach (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby’s place is absolutely beautiful, even better than the pictures. Plenty of space for a large group and impeccably styled. He has everything that you could ever need and is quick to respond to any changes and issues. It was an absolute pleasure, we would absolutely book this place or any of Toby’s places!|

|Stephanie L. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great place for a group>|
This location is amazing. The hot was a Big hit with our group. The house is well stocked and very clean. The owner leaves almost nothing left needed to bring from home. I would, however, like you to know when considering this property that’s it’s not exactly family friendly if you have young children. There’s no crib or pak n play for infants so you’ll need your own. There are no safety gates for the stairs or life vests for the hot tub. There are many fun but breakable art work, instruments, dvds, and remotes that should be put up to avoid damage. And although the game room inside and in the garage is filled with things for older, more responsible children to enjoy, it’s exhausting to keep up with rules and regulations the owner requests to keep things in order. You should know and be aware and willing to stay in this home knowing that every single thing in the home, and I mean EVERY single thing is labeled including light switches, towels, cups, remotes, the hundreds of games, etc.....and the owner is very particular about things being not lost, broken, or even slightly worn. He does this to keep the house in tip top condition which I fully appreciate but it’s not feasible with smaller children. I would recommend this listing to anyone who feels that these requirements are easy to abide by for your family or group. I do recommend this property for families with older children or groups without if you want a truly relaxing vacation.
Loading a house with almost everything a guest might need presents some interesting challenges. Everyone likes having nice things available for use, so I do my best to provide them, and also keep them in good condition. No one likes to book a home only to find stained sheets, broken appliances, and worn out furniture. I provide a home that is clean, organized, and loaded with almost anything you will need. Leaving this home in the same condition you found it may be a challenge for some groups, but most of my guests do an amazing job. I appreciate the challenge of supervising small children in someone else's home, and thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review.
|Debra (review from Airbnb)|
|Beautiful home with tons of amenities and great for families to enjoy a WA beach vacation!|
|William (review from Airbnb)|
Our visit to Toby's Rental was a 1st for me, in 45+ years of renting Vacation homes, I was amazed as none of the Family Members, not even the Grandkids had a complaint about things not available or things to do.
Toby had foresaw anything we might need and had it there, labeled and in a book on the table. I will say that was great having everything I needed for cooking, even though I brought my own Spices, even they were available.
Sure there were some minor issues, but Toby had them taken care of quickly. Even extra batteries for the game controllers were available in a Safe for our use.
I will say this is also the 1st home that everyone agrees we should rent again... as a matter of fact, I am currently checking for a date that works for us for next year.
The only down side to our visit was that Long Beach wasn't all open and what was required Mask due to COVID-19, but I am sure if there was a cure for it, Toby would probably have provided it as well.
I highly recommend Toby's home and commend him and his Maintenance/Cleaning staff for the excellent job they do as even the trail to the beach was manicured.

|The Whole Clan>|
This house was perfect for our Family Beach Reunion 2020 during the crazy Covid-19 pandemic.
The different areas to congregate for eating, board games, video games, hot tubbing, indoor and outdoor conversating and the garage game room were wonderful. The steam shower and whirlpool tub were great features and the giant washing machine and dryer were helpful. It was so nice to walk to the beautiful, ocean and play awhile, then return to wash off in the outdoor showers and hop in the hot tub or sit by the fire to warm up & enjoy s'mores.
The kitchen was adequate for our large group to work around and it was very well stocked. Everything is labeled which is helpful for getting everything back to its correct spot.
The downside to the property was a broken arcade machine that our tweens & teens were looking forward to experiencing & no griddle to cook hotcakes on for the crowd (so the double waffle iron got plenty of use).
The owner, Toby was quick to respond to our few on site inquiries however, it would have been nice to have had ready access to extra TP & garbage bags.
The Ocean Trails rental has plenty of parking, comfortable beds, beach chairs and toys for the kids. We also saw quite a few majestic bald eagles and went to the close-by tourist shops in town. All in all a near-perfect vacation!
|Josh R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Fun property inside and out>|
|We enjoyed our stay here a lot. Tons of games to play in the game room. Large dining table for all family to eat together. 2 master suites and plenty of room for kids to play. Video games for the kids in different bedrooms and in family room. Nice fireplace outside to have a fire and cook s’mores. Has game room in garage too with pool and ping pong and fuse ball. Enjoyed many walks down the path straight to the beach, time playing at the beach and enjoyed some boogie boarding that we rented. Saw deer and a coyote and some bald eagles. Lots to do and enjoyed our time at this wonderful home. The owner is very nice to work with too and very Helpful and accommodating. We hope to come back someday|

|Beautiful House, Amazing Beach>|
The house was great. Away from town and super quiet. If you like to cook this house has everything and the organization is top notch. The beds are really comfortable and it is great to listen to the ocean as you fall asleep. The views from the second level are fantastic. The beach is amazing. Quiet and you can walk for miles while viewing the bald eagles that come to sit up
on the perches. We had a few little glitches but Toby was very responsive and took care of things ASAP. If you are looking for a place to completely relax and get away from it this house is a perfect choice. All the things you need so you can just hang out and enjoy yourself. All the games were so fun! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Toby’s place and we look forward to visiting again!
|Stephanie (review from Airbnb)|
|Beautiful home !|
|Valerie (review from Airbnb)|
|This gorgeous 6 bedroom home just a dunes walk away from the beach is a fabulous place to stay with a large group. I love a house that includes a large enough dining table to fit everyone! We love the hot tub and the game room!|
|Greg (review from Airbnb)|
This might be the best beach house I've ever had the pleasure of staying in. This was a meet-in-the-middle location for some friends from Portland and Tacoma. My wife wanted an ocean-view hot tub; some people wanted a big TV to watch sports; others wanted a game room with a poker table; I wanted a nice kitchen so I could cook for everybody. We all got what we wanted and more.
This house has everything. It's directly on the beach with stunning views from almost every room. The kitchen is impossibly well-equipped, the game room is flawlessy organized, and the beds and couches are really comfortable and high-quality. I usually try to offer some constructive feedback in a review like this, but I genuinely can't think of any. The host has thought of everything and it really shows. I can't wait to stay here again.
|Holly (review from Airbnb)|
|The house is large and spacious with plenty of place to lounge, eat, play games, and enjoy the views. Give yourself plenty of time to get beds stripped and dishes put away while packing up to go home, but instructions are very clear and the stay is really worth it. And that being said there is every amenity one could imagine, so all you need to bring our your personal items!|
|Eric J. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great Holiday Gathering Place>|
|Well equipped., modern, comfortable home. Gamer's paradise. Every kind of game imaginable, from board games to ping pong and foosball. Great location, access to one of the best razor clam beaches anywhere! I would highly recommend this home.|

|This place is everything we expected and more. Toby was quick to respond to any questions we had leading up to our trip. Upon arrival we found a fully stocked kitchen with every gadget we could think of including a margarita machine. The bedrooms were spacious and clean! The downstairs master shower was incredible with rain shower heads, steam and warming tile floor. We had an amazing time!|
|Jeff K. (review from Vrbo)|

|Stephen (review from Airbnb)|
|The property was brilliant. I have a large family with lots of siblings, and we all have our own children now. The space was amazing for all ages. We were comfortable and enjoyed all of the amenities like the game room, the huge tv in the main room, and the many different private areas if we needed a reprieve to nurse a toddler or settle into a good book for a half hour. Toby is very responsive and helpful as well. We will hopefully be back!!!|

|Mary B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Lovely Large Home>|
|The house is amazing. Large with lots of space and activities for all in our group. Looking out the window to the ocean, you feel like you're the only one on the beach. Close to town and far enough away to be away from it all. We even saw the Milky Way sitting in the hot tub. We highly recommend this property.|
|Alyson S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great House with a beautiful view from the second floor. Toby is a great manager, We can't wait to book again!|
|Anneene F. (review from Vrbo)|
|Amazing house on the beach!>|
|This property is incredible in every way. Roomy, clean, modern, comfortable beds, games, tvs, kitchen appliances and gadgets. There was plenty of entertainment for everyone and you can walk to your private beach. Toby is responsive and took care of a minor issue immediately. Look no further if you need a house for a large group. This is it! Our family had a blast!!|
|Elizabeth A. (review from Vrbo)|
|Always a great experience>|
|Toby's houses are always perfectly stocked and full of fun games. This is the second house we've stayed in over four years. Toby is always very responsive and there are rarely any issues. I would recommend any house that Toby owns. We are looking forward to next year!|
|Dana (review from Airbnb)|
|The house was terrific for our big family. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were spacious. We loved the private walking path to the beach and both game rooms were a big hit. We would love to come back.|
|Maribeth G. (review from Vrbo)|
|The house was perfect and had everything you could ever want or need! The kids had a great time with all the games and it was so nice having sand out front to play in and just a short walk to the beach! Thanks for a fantastic place to stay!|

|Toby has s awesome to communicate with!|
|Liz R. (review from Vrbo)|
|This large house is on the oceanfront with a lovely view of the ocean from the second floor. Two families stayed here for our family reunion and thought it was great since it's roomy enough to spread out and large enough to spend time together. The house is well equipped in the kitchen and filled with games and DVDs. Thanks!|

|Family get together>|
|This property was truly amazing, all the amenities listed were so nice to have and the attention to detail with labels was a nice touch. All in our party agreed this was an excellent idea and talked about re-booking to make this an annual event. Excellent property and an excellent host.|
|Mallory B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Such a fun & perfect house!!>|
|My whole family rented the house for a family vacation on the beach & could not have been more happy with the house! The house has everything you need. More than enough space to accommodate large groups like we had including kids and dogs. There is a short trail to the private beach that we walked to daily and a hot tub that both the kids and adults loved. Toby was so accommodating and was very quick to respond to any questions I had. Everything is clearly labeled where things belong so it made cleaning up a breeze! More than recommend this place & definitely want to come back!!|
|Debbie (review from Airbnb)|
|There is not much to add that the other reviewers didn't cover. Perfect space for our family to vacation together. Will come back again and again.|

|The owner has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. It is a spacious house with a beautiful view. We would definitely stay here again.|
|Karyn (review from Airbnb)|
|This is an A+ vacation rental, the best we have ever rented for our yearly gatherings. So many amenities it would take many more days to enjoy the use of everything available here. Almost any game you love to play, whether that's board games or video games or retro arcade games, you have at this spacious and spotless home. The bedrooms had such comfortable, adjustable beds with tv and gaming in each room. This kitchen truly was well thought out and stocked with anything we needed. Thank you!|
|Kelli (review from Airbnb)|
|Lovely house, big enough for several couples. Excellent amenities and location, beach is just a few minutes walk from the back door and a nice stroll to town on the beach took us about an hour.|
|Jessica M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Better than I can describe>|
|We LOVED our stay - Toby was a responsive host and the house was even better than it looked in the pictures and sounded in the description. Everything is clearly labeled, which made it easy to find things and put things away. The beach was beyond beautiful - gorgeous, fine sand, phenomenal vistas - and our kids loved playing there. We had epic showdowns on the arcade machine, the kids played Xbox, the adults played pool, we all put together a puzzle and played board games. My only regret is that we only stayed 3 nights. None of us wanted to leave! Also, there are so many amazing nifty appliances in the kitchen that we never got a chance to use - next time we are making ice cream and homemade waffle cones. We also enjoyed exploring the town and relaxing in the hot tub. We will definitely be back and I can't speak highly enough of how clean, well-appointed, and comfortable everything was!|
|Jenna (review from Airbnb)|
|This is an Oasis. The house was beautifully situated with a two minutes or less walk across the sand dune down a private path to the beach. The house is wanting for nothing with more amenities than you could want and enough bedrooms to satisfy the needs of a nice large family or big group of friends. This house was amazing, all the kids (both young and old) wanted to know when we're coming back. Perfect whatever the weather.|
|Karina (review from Airbnb)|
|Our group enjoyed the well appointed and well labeled kitchen, the awesome TVs and movie selections, proximity to the beach, the hot tub, the large dinning table, the stand up video game unit and the ocean views.|
|Lacey (review from Airbnb)|
|Super clean, everything you could ever need in the kitchen, so many movies, games & activities to choose from- it was the best! The jacuzzi tub was squeaky clean, the hot tub was wonderful, we had gorgeous weather & really enjoyed flying kites and playing on the beach. The long dining table was perfect for puzzles- a dream come true for the puzzle fanatics in our group. Even with 14 of us there, you could still find quiet little nooks to nap or read away from folks. Highly recommended!|
|Veronica (review from Airbnb)|
|Beautiful, comfortable, quite home made for such a memorable weekend family getaway. The home was spacious for all to enjoy their pick of quite time, playing games, or making cookies in the well stocked kitchen. Watching the sunset from the hot tub was a great way to wind down on a Sunday evening. Thank you!|
|Henry W. (review from Vrbo)|
|This house has everything you need to enjoy your stay! Toby is super helpful and on the ball for any needs that might pop up during your stay. I would highly recommend staying here to any of my friends. My wife and I are already planning our next trip down!|
|Josh (review from Airbnb)|
|This house was perfect! We used the place for a large family get together for a long weekend and it exceeded all our expectations. The house is fully loaded with all the comforts, entertainment, and luxuries for both adults and little kids. The kitchen had everything needed for us to prepare all home cooked meals. The beach access and hot tub were lovely. Toby was great to work with and the the check in and check out process was super easy. Me and my family will definitely be back for another stay and highly recommend this listing!|
|JP M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great beach retreat!!>|
|This house is magnificent. It has so many excellent features. Lots of bedrooms and bathrooms. Each bedroom is very well equipped and comfortable. The meeting spaces were very adequate for our group and there is a group dining area too that worked out very well. In addition, the house is on the beach and with a short walk, you can be at the ocean. It is secluded and private. The kitchen and entertainment center are the best equipped I have ever seen in a house. It is obvious that there has been a lot of thought and care for guests put into this house.|
|Mark F. (review from Vrbo)|
|Comfort and attention to every detail! You will feel spoiled when you stay here!>|
|What an incredible location - so close to the coast you can see and hear it. The spacious rooms open up to some incredible views. And every room you walk into has constant wow factors. Large TV's, comfortable beds, luxurious master suites, kitchen gadgets galore, games and more! Great for families or a romantic getaway, this place will not disappoint. The owner has thought of everything and takes great pride in this home. You will feel the difference!|
|Tiffany (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby's house was more than we could have asked for. This was our 10th year of our group of friends taking trips to the WA/Oregon coast area together and with our growing families it isn't always easy to find homes with 6 bedrooms. In all this time we have never actually stayed somewhere we wanted to go back to until now. The home is beautiful and completely stocked, there was no shortage of things for us to do at the house or take a quick walk to the beach and is just the right distance from town. Toby was always quick to respond to my questions leading up to our trip and has been a great host. Highly recommend.|
|Valerie (review from Airbnb)|
|This house is amazing! Perfect for a large group and dog friendly as well! We were a family of 12, including 3 little ones, plus our dog, and the place had plenty of super comfortable beds and privacy for all. Supremely well stocked kitchen. Direct access to the fabulous Long Beach. Great hot tub. And a dining room table that fits everyone! If you think you might want it, this house very likely has it! This was our second time staying here and it did not disappoint.|
|Andrea (review from Airbnb)|
|Great home for a large group. Plenty of space for 4 small families. Most stocked and organized house we’ve ever rented. Would love to come again.|
|Lisa (review from Airbnb)|
|This home looks unbelievable when booking but it is nothing compared to what you get! We brought family together from 3 different states to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday and the experience was AMAZING! Every couple (6 in total) had their own room with large flat screen TV, incredible selection of movies and games (both video and board/card games), anything you could possibly want in the kitchen (seriously-a vegetable spiralizer, double waffle iron, margarita machine, and way more!), and incredible view with access to the beach. We didn't need to go anywhere because everything we needed/wanted was right there! Toby was also extremely responsive and worked with me for some special requests. I would definitely recommend this home to any and every one.|
|Jennifer S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Clean, well-cared-for, beautiful>|
My family and I have been renting properties like this since 2000. We are used to bringing our own sharp knives, cookie sheets, pots, etc. This is the first time we were able to leave our drink dispensers and crockpots in the car and cut tomatoes with the knives in the kitchen. There was even a full set of bar ware in a cabinet. We were very impressed.
Our kids were impressed with the sheer number of arcade/computer games available.
Also, this place was well-stocked with linens, towels, cozy blankets, etc. I did have one question at the last minute from a request of my niece and the owner got back to me very quickly. I will definitely keep this in mind next time my family wants to go to the Washington coast.
|Lucretia (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby has created a very comfortable space for a large group of people. His attention to detail and organizational skills are outstanding. Everyone needs an ocean experience and Toby's Ocean Retreat makes it that much more memorable.|
|Shannon (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby’s house is like a dream! It has everything you could ever imagine, all the beds are adjustable and super comfortable. The pillows and blankets are so soft and cozy. The space is fantastic for families and the view cannot be matched. Add to that a short walk down to a beautiful beach and a great hot tub outside, this location is possibly the best house listed on Airbnb. Thank you again Toby! You made our family Christmas one for the books!!!|
|Michael D. (review from Vrbo)|
Great house, found every appliance needed to cook Thanksgiving dinner. The whole family stayed in comfort.
One small problem arose and the owner responded promptly.
|david b. (review from Vrbo)|
|great place with plenty of room and amazing views>|
I've stayed at dozens of VRBOs. By far, this is the cleanest, most organized, best outfitted VRBO on the planet. Toby apparently takes pride in providing a place where you'll never have to say, "I wish it had that".
Room? There's a ton of room and the bedrooms are huge. Two great master suite, one on each floor have huge showers and are nicely appointed.
If you like walking on the beach, you can spend hours doing it here. Just a short walk out the back door and your on the beach with eagles and all sorts of other wildlife.
This is our second year in a row staying here and I am sure we'll be back again next year.

|The house was absolutely perfect for our girls' getaway. It had everything we needed and much more, and every detail is covered. If we needed jackets, extra blankets, raincoats, flashlights, beach towels, whatever, it's all there. We only wish we had a complete list of all the kitchen machines and gadgets beforehand - we could have planned a month of meals inspired by the kitchen tools alone. ;-) The location by the beach is perfect. Just a short walk and you're there; you can watch the waves crash from the amazing balcony or listen to the ocean from the hot tub. We had no problem picking movies or finding games for rainy nights, there are SO many to choose from. Thank you for the perfect escape!|

|Wonderful house and beautiful setting for your family get away.>|
|Our family yearly gets together for a long weekend at the beach. The house was beautiful, it had everything anyone could want, loved the labels so we knew where to find everything and where to return the items after using them, game room was to die for, ocean views were great and beach was accessible. To sum it up - WONDERFUL!!|
|Brandon Y. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great place at the beach>|
|This was our 2nd time renting, and this house has everything you need for a great getaway to the beach with plenty of room. The kitchen is full stocked with every tool you could possibly need. There are many games and DVDs, so no matter the weather, you will have plenty to do. I can't recommend this house enough.|
|Susan (review from Airbnb)|
|This home was especially comfy , elegant and spacious. Room for all of our activities from a movie in the TV room to games, eating or chats many places on the main floor. And space for some yoga! Beds all big and cozy, and a fun shower with ocean view! Warmed floors in the master main. Kitchen well stocked and labeled! (need to use that plan at home!) Cleared and direct trail to beach. Lots of thought put into how guests should be treated! THANKS, Toby You were a responsive, caring host. ...Great place for 9 friends of 52 years to celebrate year 70!|
|Sherri & Jim (review from Airbnb)|
|Immaculate, spacious home for a family gathering. Beds are all excellent and fancy. Large tables for group dinners. Well beyond our expectations! Nothing was missing, and that is a statement you will have to see to fully believe.|
|caralee t. (review from Vrbo)|
|This home is the best ever!>|
Your home was absolutely amazing. Never in our 23 years of renting larger properties together have we run across such a well-put-together home. Your genius for planning and first-class quality was evident everywhere we looked. It fit our needs perfectly, and we expect to try renting it again in 2019 once we determine our preferred dates.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful, warm home with us!
|Debbie R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Absolutely a beautiful home.>|
|We had a large group stay for a memorial gathering and the home accommodated the 8 of us very comfortable. The kitchen is set up perfectly and there are several different areas that allow you to have privacy if desired. Thank you !|
|Sarah (review from Airbnb)|
|This is a great place. Well equipped, spacious, and comfortable.|
|Erin P. (review from Vrbo)|
|The home was beautiful! It was immaculately clean and organized beyond what I thought possible. The kitchen had literally every appliance, tool and gadget you could want. Each item in the House was labeled and had a place, which made it so easy to clean up and put things away. The beach was really close to the house and we loved that it was so calm and private. Our families will definitely be returning to this home in the future!|

|Kite Festival Vacation>|
|A group of us decided to rent this big beautiful house for the kite festival. With 6 bedrooms we had plenty of room. We are also big foodies, and the kitchen was very well outfitted. There were items there we had never seen before plus all the needed items. The hot tub was a huge hit after a long day of kite flying. The furniture, especially the beds were a huge hit.We really enjoyed our stay, so much that we will be back.|
|Dick M. (review from Vrbo)|
|The best organized place we have ever seen.>|
|For our 50th wedding anniversary, we rented this house for 3 nights with our son and daughter and their families, 10 total. Spacious, clean, SO well organized and quiet. Great view of the surf and a nice walk through the grass to the beach. Very well equipped kitchen with many quality small appliances I did not even know existed. Expensive but a good value for what was provided. Very thorough and clear check-in and check-out instructions. The owner was very friendly and easy to deal with. We had difficulty with using a credit card with Home Away - not the owner's fault. Our family really appreciated the house and location.|
|Brenda A. (review from Vrbo)|
|My Dream Home>|
This home is spectacular. No luxury or convenience left out and what could be better than having it all beachfront. This was a return visit, this time with gal friends.
Each of us had beautiful rooms. The jacuzzi tub in one upstairs master overlooking the beach is amazing and was claimed first...lol. Then there’s the large steam shower in the downstairs master with a bench to relax on. I loved it! All bedrooms are large and well equipped. Beds are so comfy, adjustable, and with luxury bedding.
We sat around the kitchen island reminiscing, enjoy appetizers and wine, while listening to the ocean. The cool arcade game was great for a little competition (wished we would have had time to enjoy the fantastic game room or ping pong or pool table). In the morning we walked the short private path to the ocean. This home is so well laid out, it could accommodate numerous families. On the drive home, we all kept talking about how soon we want to go back.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us!

|Luke Z. (review from Vrbo)|
|The perfect house for a large group.>|
|The house was perfect for our large family to gather. There are a lot of activities in the house and nearby. The house has space for large gatherings and places for people to have their own space. Every amenity that I could have asked for and a few more are here. A great place!|
|Anonymous (review from Vrbo)|
|This was our second trip to the house. The addition of the main floor bedroom was a huge bonus.>|
|Our family of 13 enjoyed this home very much! The kitchen is extremely well stocked as is the game room! Everything in this house is top-of-the-line and the location is excellent. We enjoyed a lot of time on the beach. We rarely go to the same location twice but our family is thinking about booking this house a third time for next year. Toby is very responsive to questions and check in is very easy.|
|Yan C. (review from Vrbo)|
|Well appointed home... great for family trips.>|
|Long Beach was not our first choice, but this Home was the attraction that lead us to stay there. It’s really well appointed and has plenty of entertainment option in the house including a multi arcade system with hundreds-thousands of games for the kids to explore. There’s plenty of space to spread around and explore outside. We loved it and the kids didn’t want to leave.|
|Sandra (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby’s home is beautiful and the location is so quiet and tranquil. He has thought of everything and we were so comfortable and happy there. The home was clean, and the amenities were a step above. If you like to cook, the kitchen is the best stocked kitchen I have ever experienced in a rental! Our family enjoyed the game room and short walk to the beach. The home was completely clean and we absolutely loved our time there. You won’t regret renting this gorgeous place!|
|Katrina M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great weekend and beautiful home>|
|Big enough home for our family and great location to the beach! Toby was great to work with! We would definitely stay again|
|Christopher R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Excellent location, well-stocked and organized home, very enjoyable!>|
The "man cave" is awesome - pool table, ping-pong, foosball, corn hole, clam guns.
The game room has a thousand games/puzzles for when the weather isn't great.
The jacuzzi tub in the master bath is delightful.
TVs and movies in every room.
We will be back!
|Anton S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great place to stay>|
We stayed in this place for weekend and the place is great. Very nice looking house. Big and clean. Fully equipped kitchen with numerous accessories. Room with tens of board games and special table. TV in every bedroom and multiple triple A games to play. Awesome location close to the beach and Jacuzzi outside made it a great place to spend our weekend.
|Kari (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby‘s house was truly amazing. Between games and the movies we had a great time. All of the beds were so comfortable and the kitchen was very well-stocked and organized. It is the perfect house for a big family vacation. I would recommend this home to anyone that wants to go to the beach.|
|Tara W. (review from Vrbo)|
|Amazing house with a great view>|

|Ashley (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby's beach house was PERFECT! Beautiful neighborhood, beach access and the house was huge with everything you could possibly need. Not to mention the beds were amazing, we all slept great. We can't wait to come back, this was one of our favorite Airbnb stays ever!|
|Naomi (review from Airbnb)|
|This place is absolutely amazing. Beaitiful location, ridiculously comfortable and, as described, furnished to spoil in every way. We're looking forward to doing it again as soon as possible.|
|Valerie L. (review from Vrbo)|
|Spacious, beautiful ocean view home>|
|This house is gorgeous and roomy, super clean with AMAZING beds, sheets and pillows. Well-stocked kitchen. Fun games room. Great access to the beach. A big enough dining room table to sit the whole group for dinners! Would recommend the addition of some hooks in the master bath and outside by the hot tub to hang towels and robes. Also a rubber mat or shoe basket near the back door to place sandy shoes would be helpful for keeping sand out of the house. Highly recommend this place for groups of friends and families.|
|Erica (review from Airbnb)|
|This house is amazing. We were 10 friends from Seattle visiting the coast for a 30th birthday weekend celebration. We didn't leave the house between arriving and leaving because of the amenities, GAME ROOM, hot tub, proximity to the beach, etc. Toby has literally thought of everything- the entire house is labeled, which makes it incredibly easy to keep track of everything, cook, organize, and clean. The beds are all tempur pedic; they incline/recline and vibrate. We had intended on going into town to explore a bit and hit up Fun Land, but there really was no need. Maybe during a longer stay. We will definitely be booking again in summer when the beach is more welcoming!|
|Shannon E. (review from Vrbo)|
|Another amazing stay at the house always a pleasure celebrating our anniversary in such a beautiful house on the water. Toby is great and always ensures the home has everything you could ever need.|
|William H. (review from Vrbo)|
|The home and the location are just fabulous.>|
|We had a large group staying in the house and it more than accommodated us. Sleeping arrangements were more than adequate and the living room area functioned as a terrific meeting space. The location of the house is very near the ocean... a quick walk to the beach... and we thoroughly enjoyed the number of eagles spotted nearby or flying over the property. The house is very tastefully decorated and has every conceivable electronic device or board game to help make your stay entertaining and enjoyable.|
|Mark F. (review from Vrbo)|
|Stunning views, attention to detail and unbelievable amenities combined in comfortable luxury!>|
|This home has it all. Insanely comfortable beds. Full equipped kitchen. Technology. Games. Beach supplies. Views. Come here to RELAX and feel pampered. This homeowner has thought of everything you need to enjoy your time at the beach!|
|Brittney (review from Airbnb)|
This was our second time here and we will definitely be back.
What we love -There is need to pack a lot, Toby’s place has it all!! Kitchen is complete with everything from a fro yo maker to a roasting oven. Entertainment - Movies, board games, video games, hot tub, and of course the beach is right there!
Layout of the rooms are all upstairs. Adjustable beds, amazing views, bunk beds (great lay out with 2 sets in one room!) Spacious, quiet, safe, scenic, easy check in/ out!
Fantastic experience and can’t wait to go back.
|Joan H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Can't say enough about this wonderful home.>|
|This is a beautiful home; very comfortable, well stocked, extremely well organized and very well appointed. The gated area and convenient location of the home in proximity to town was perfect for our needs. Things are labeled which is very helpful when there is a group. There are many kitchen gadgets, fun to see and convenient for your every need. The layout of the home and the attention to detail is impressive. Everything we needed was there and then some. The path to the beach is an easy walk and the view of the ocean from the master bedroom sitting area is spectacular. The communication and instructions for use of the house are easy and clear. We have not stayed in such a well thought out home. Thank you for sharing your home! We will definitely be back.|
|Kimberley (review from Airbnb)|
|Our group of 10 family members were all very comfortable. We had lots of room for everyone to stretch out and relax. The kitchen could not have been better stocked. We found everything we needed for cooking. The game room was fun. There wasn't anything we went workout. Thanks Toby.|
|Joshua (review from Airbnb)|
|This place is spectacular. You will not be disappointed in anyway it is exactly as it shows with more that is not. Beach a short walk and place not far from town. Highly recommend this place.|
|Jordan W. (review from Vrbo)|
|I was very impressed with my stay at this beach house. I have been to a few and this was by far the best. I felt so much more relaxed since I was literally 50 feet from the beach! Not to mention the huge hot tub! I highly recommend a visit to this place!|
|Rachel R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Loved this house!!>|
|This house is awesome! This house has an amazing game room with a huge selection of fun games to play. Also this house has a great movie selection with hundreds to choose from. Game systems and big tvs also for enetertainment. The private beach access is very nice and hot tub view is just a bonus. This house feels overall very comfortable and relaxing!|
|Olivia R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Above and Beyond!!!>|
|My experience at this house shatter so all house expectations and raises the standard exceedingly! This is definitely a home a away from home that I wouldn’t mind staying at forever. House goals!! Everything is well organized, labeled, and even has instructions. The house is so spacious and roomy, I couldn’t get enough. Family friendly with thousands of movies to choose from hundreds of board games to play. Who even need to leave the house to spend money on entertainment, when everything is already provided for you. Quality! Quality, Quality, everywhere you look. Such a breathtaking home. Highly recommend.|
|Olivia R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Above and Beyond!!!>|
|This place was absolutely amazing!!! Spacious and breathtaking everywhere I turned. This is a home away from home that I wouldn’t mind living in forever. This house shatters all home goals and tops them by far. I couldn’t get enough, each room and area was above and beyond! Everything was well organized, labeled, and even included handy instructions. This is house goals, a lot of thought and work out in you can tell. Who need to go out and spend extra money on entertainment when it’s all provided for you in the house? Thousands of movies including EVERY genre, entire wall of hundreds of games. So much to do in one house you’ll never want to leave, impossible to get bored. Everything was stunning and the man in charge of it all is highly respectful, easy to talk to, fun to learn from. I can’t say this enough, BEAUTIFUL PLACE, Quality. Quality. QUALITY EVERYTHING. This house is extraordinary, highly recommend to groups with any ages.|
|Claire K. (review from Vrbo)|
|This was such a wonderful house! So much fun for everyone and it has everything you need. The hot tub is a great added bonus. I'll be sure to stay again.|
|david b. (review from Vrbo)|
|Nice place with all you'll need>|
it's nice place and the location is great as well. There are utensils and kitchen gadgetry the likes of which you've never seen. Seriously, a few of the things we had to look up. Have you ever heard of a Rollie Hands-Free Automatic Electric Vertical Nonstick Easy Quick Egg Cooker? Yeah, me either. And I didn't know their was a s'mores maker either. Very informative. Beds were great, probably the best VBRO beds I've ever seen. You're not going to have a bad night's sleep. We could have used an extra bedroom but it was fine. It appears that the owner is adding a downstairs master suite.
The movie collection is pretty good, especially if your a Generation X like me. There are huge TVs almost every room which is great if you're using it as family and a "meh" if you're with friends. We used the one TV in the family room area. The organization is impeccable, one wonders if the owner had Dustin Hoffman visit and provide a weeklong rendition of Rainman? Where does one find the time? It is remarkable the organization.
Of course, I gave it a 4-star and you're probably wondering why. Well, we wanted to use the hot tub, but there were so many rules and things we had to do and charges and fees if you did this and that. It was really off-putting. Why have a hot tub at all? There's rules about sand. Don't get sand in the hot tub or you'll have to pay money...So, the one time I opened the cover thinking about using it, what do you think was all over the bottom of the hot tub? Sand. So, if figured I could use it and say it was in there already (which it was) or not use it and eliminate any doubt. I elected not to use the hot tub. Which was a bummer because we passed up a number of houses b/c they did not have one. My suggestion to the owner would be to either lighten up or remove the hot tub altogether. If you've got the kind of scratch to rent this place, chances are you're not the type who trashes it. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this place and it's a 5-star for anyone not concerned about using the hot tub.
|Andrea (review from Airbnb)|
This is by far the most organized and well equipped home we have stayed at. From cookware to entertainment the host has covered every detail.
The view is amazing, the house is clean and the beds super comfortable. No surpisres with this one...it’s as good as it looks in the photos.
The host is also very prompt to respond. I highly recommend this property.
|Karen (review from Airbnb)|
|This is a wonderful well organized house. The game room is absolutely awesome. There is a nice trail to the beach, where we saw eagles and a sea lion.|
|Fredna (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby's place was perfect in every way. Large enough for 9 of us and things for every interest and need. The house is beautiful and spacious. We loved the privacy and location on the beach. We'll be back for sure!|
|Lezlie (review from Airbnb)|
|This place is amazing. A group of family and friends joined me in celebrating my 60th birthday. Huge selection of games, movies, the kitchen has everything you could think of. Direct Beach access and lovely views. It's a delightful place for a large group and a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion.|
|Angela (review from Airbnb)|
|Perfect house for a multi-generational get together like we had. Everyone was amazed by the game room, and the kids had tons to be entertained by. Also, I've never seen a house so well-labeled! Hope to visit again, especially with the bedroom suite being added downstairs which will make it easier for older guests.|
|Roger H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Excellent location with good beach access>|
|We had a large group with three families and we were very comfortable in this house. It had absolutely everything you could ever want in the kitchen and an amazing collection of games and movies to entertain. Short walk to a beach that was never crowded and quick drive into town. Great house for a large group of people.|
|Judy R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great place, more that what the the pictures show>|
|The place was wonderful and all had a great time. Everyone love this place and want to come back. Our whole family was there. Family was from Ohio, Las Vegas and Seattle for a family wedding at Long Beach.|
|Clair O. (review from Vrbo)|
|We had a great time>|
|Very nice and spacious home with lots of amenities. Easy beach access. We have been renting vacation homes for the last 11 years for an annual Board meeting in various locations around WA. This was the largest home we have rented and among the best and at a great location. The LLC Board is all family members. Our numbers have grown over the years to 13 now, with one more on the way; so, we really appreciated the extra space and the game room. The addition of another bedroom on the ground floor (a work in progress, it appears) is a great idea.|
|Eldon P. (review from Vrbo)|
|Wonderful place for a family gathering.>|
|This property is as advertised. The game room was amazing, kitchen well stocked with equipment, and an endless assortment of videos and games. The house was beautiful insider and the beds were all comfortable. Master bedroom with one King, two other rooms also with king beds, one room with two full size beds and the final bed room had 2 sets of bunk beds with two being either full or queen. Short walk to the beach was worth the walk.|
|Adrienne E. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great house for large groups with indoor and outdoor activities>|
|Great location with an amazing view and easy access to the beach. Large house that can accommodate many. Kids loved the bunks and the video game in the kitchen. Game room was awesome! Kitchen has everything you could ever need.|
|Anonymous (review from Vrbo)|
|This was a beautiful home that is stocked with anything you could possibly need! My mother kept saying "I think this is the nicest place we have ever rented!" The beach is a short walk for the able bodied but there is also a lot of entertainment provided in the house. Toby was very responsive to my questions before our stay. It looks like they are building a bedroom on the main level which would have been the ONLY thing missing from this amazing property. This place will not disappoint.|
|Joel H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Amazing spot for large groups with kids.>|
This is our second stay here and it was just as good this time. We stay in a lot of vacation rentals, and this one is particularly excellent. Comfy beds, amazing kitchen, large TVs, gaming systems, and a path directly to the beach.
Everything you could hope for!
|Julie C. (review from Vrbo)|
|There is something for everyone here. Plenty of space, comfortable beds, lots of games and activities, and the beach is in the back yard!|
|Victoria T. (review from Vrbo)|
|Wonderful Family Reunion>|
|Great instructions, lots of cool amenities, extremely well organized. We had four related families staying here with plenty of room for all and tons to do. The owner really cares for the property and respects his renters. The check in directions were detailed and accurate. The check out activities took less time than expected. All in all a great four days!|
|Manveer S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Perfect for a family getaway balanced with outdoor fun and indoor activities>|
The owner has thought of nearly everything! My wife, daughter, cousins along with their dogs enjoyed a great weekend at this house. From organization and flow of the house itself, secure location with a gated entry and easy/direct access to the beach, we thoroughly enjoyed our time.
Entertainment - i mean there was more to do then we had time. From a room with a wall full of board games, family games, children's activities and a complete poker set-up we were perfectly set-up for the evenings. Each bedroom came fully stocked with a pretty solid DVD collection and large screen TV's - the children's rooms had the video gaming systems all set-up to go. Then outside you had the hot tub, pool table, and more.
Kitchen - organized, organized, organized! Whether you needed a juicer or an avocado slicer, the owner thought of almost every cooking scenario possible. Plus there were some great tips posted by each device for a recipe and how to use. Also, the labeling helped to put everything back in place.
Bedrooms - my wife and I enjoyed the master bedroom. Great views, comfortable beds, awesome shower, and overall space. There is currently a very non-intrusive construction project underway for a second Master suite downstairs, which would be ideal for our parents or anyone else looking for the master suite experience.
Recommendation - only one recommendation, one of the factors that made us want to pick this location versus another was because of the dedicated yard space with grass. However, upon walking on it barefoot, the amount of weeds throughout the yard didn't offer a great experience for our feet and especially for our 2 year old. Just a little more TLC is needed - especially if you are making your way from the hot tub to the hammock to enjoy the night sky or just sun bathe.
We definitely plan on going back!

|Perfect Long Beach Vacation Home for our family>|
|Perfect Long Beach Vacation Home for our family; Super clean and well appointed with games, videos, hot tub, and a kitchen filled with every appliance made. Dog friendly - we brought our pups; all had a great time. Beds are great quality. Easy to decide to rent again.|
|Marilyn (review from Airbnb)|
|The house was so organized, had everything we needed and more. Gorgeous views and just a 3 min walk to the beach.|
|Anonymous (review from Vrbo)|
|Nice house, nice view, good location. Saw Bald Eagles flying directly between the house and beach>|
The master bath is great, with a large shower and a nice jetted tub that looks out on the beach, along with a nice upper deck facing the beach from the master bedroom.
2nd large room upstairs has 2 beds and a beautiful view of the ocean from a pair of nice recliners.
The kids room has two bunk beds that can probably sleep a dozen kids. One bunk has a screen with an N64 or a game cube and a ton of games. The other bunk also had a screen and had maybe a PS2 or a PS3 and a bunch more games.
TONS of board games. Poker table. Stand up arcade unit with 1000+ old school games.
This house is FULLY equipped including a couple of margarita machines and most kitchen gadgets you might need.
The only thing missing is a fire pit and some benches!

|Jinger S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Amazing beach house with great views and a short walk to the beach. It has everything! 😊�>|
We would highly recommend this amazing beach house to large groups or multiple families. It's incredible! It's super organized with a well stocked and labeled kitchen, ocean views, awesome board-game room and multiple video game systems too. The home is decorated well with a classy beach theme. The beds are comfy and adjustable. Their movie collection is huge and there are giant TV's in almost every room! The short walk to the beach allows for a non crowded, private beach feel. This is truly everything Toby claims on his listing and even better than the pictures portray. 😄�
The location of the home is close to the cute town of Long Beach. It was nice to have a gated small community with a quick walk to a private, uncrowded beach. Our kids enjoyed the game room in the garage, as well as spending hours playing the huge selection of board games provided at the rental. Toby has truly thought of everything and was wonderful to work with. He promptly answered a few questions we had while we were staying in his home and was kind and personable.
We enjoyed the hot tub in the backyard as well as the hammocks and patio chairs. We wished the coastal weather would have cooperated with us, but the house withstood the rain and winds and even a few hours of a power outage! However, we were all warm and cozy inside by the fireplace with plenty to enjoy in this incredible home. 👍�🏻�😄�
|Patrick (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby's place is probably what it means to really be a "5-star" place on AirBNB. Large and spacious enough to accommodate everyone, and well stocked like an actual home would be and not just a model home. There's a ton of stuff to do and your backyard is the pacific ocean. Everything is clean and well laid out, including labels everywhere to help you out with what is what. All the beds are top notch and super comfy as well, with almost every bedroom coming with a ginormous tv. All in all, one can only help every AirBNB comes like this.|
|William d. (review from Vrbo)|
|Feel at home on the coast>|
This property is great. All of the amenities are probably the most impressive aspect of it. The beds are super comfortable, and you can walk right down to the water and look at the unbelievable beach.
Overall great home and price. I'd recommended it.
|Patricia L. (review from Vrbo)|
|This is a fantastic property! Every room had everything you could possibly want including temprapedic adjustable beds with massagers... every drawer and appliance was labeled which made it VERY easy to return things to their proper places! We loved all the games and cooking amenities. And had a most wonderful time....no junk drawers in this impeccable place! We would love to live here!|

|Spoiled by a Perfect Home at the Coast >|
As regular Long Beach visitors, me and my girlfriend were thrilled to stay at this beautiful home. The owner was easy to get a hold of and had excellent communication. My favorite part of visiting any rental is walking through the property and taking a peek at someone else's creation. Walking through this house was like walking through disneyland for the first time as a kid. Everywhere we looked was a new toy or unique feature to explore. The kitchen was filled to the brim with every cooking gadget you could need. The range of electronics, from impressive televisions to retro video games systems certainly caught my eye. Even though we made the non-conventional choice to visit the beach in the winter, the hot tub on the back porch overlooking the ocean was far cozier than any amount of sunshine. We were spoiled by this beautiful house and we can't wait to return.
|Meg H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Wonderful Family Vacation House>|
|We stayed at this home over New Year's - we were taking a risk since we weren't at all familiar with the area. The house was just as we had hoped and then some. The kids were happy to have all the games and my husband and I adored the view from the Master Bedroom. I loved taking walks on the beach and waking up to the sea view each morning. Great kitchen, terrific beds and plenty of toys/bikes etc. in the garage. The owner was helpful and responsive. Really a great house.|
|Brittney R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Outstanding for family or group- excellent location/beachfront- everything you could need!>|
Fantastic family Christmas celebration.
Our family of 8: Grandparents, grown children, teen and two younger kids (8 year olds) all had a wonderful time.
Plenty of room for everyone. The little kids loved the bunk beds- with cubby holes for their things, and memory foam mattresses. Adults' bedrooms : A master bedroom with large, jet tub, walk in shower and each bedroom has an adjustable bed (also memory foam ) with built in massage feature. Note that all bedrooms are upstairs.
Tv in each room with cable, hundreds of blue-ray/ DVD movie options (every genre!) and a game room with 100s of board games and an arcade game with 1,000+ game options. Large kitchen with everything you could need - we had a crab feast one night and made a prime rib the next. I even noticed a margarita maker, s'mores machine and frozen yogurt maker!!! This house was awesome and would be fun in any season. The house is on the beach- gorgeous view and easy access, short walk to the sand, and a quick 5 minute drive to down town Long Beach or the grocery store.
Toby was quick to confirm our reservation, and to answer questions. He was helpful and check in / out was smooth!
I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this rental !

|Great Weekend Escape>|
|Everything was fantastic - location, house, space, attention to detail, etc. We had a great time getting out of Seattle for a few days.|

|Fantastic getaway, amazing house!>|
|We stayed at the house for two nights the last week of October. The house itself is huge, beautiful, and well-equipped for our family. The private path to the beach was awesome, and in fact, we enjoyed that better than being beach-front. It's a very short walk, and the grass to get there is picturesque. The house itself is very clean, kitchen is well-stocked, and there are tons of DVD's to watch and board games to play. We also enjoyed playing Xbox on the giant TV. Overall it was a fun house to enjoy for the weekend, very comfortable, and would absolutely recommend this house to large families and for multi-family getaways. We will plan on visiting again!|

|Great Vacation Spot>|
We had a group of 8 people, and this house was wonderful.
1. It is really big, there is a lot of room to spread out.
2. It is really organized. We often rent vacation houses, and we typically bring a bunch of stuff (if it is within driving distance), such as a food processor (we really like to cook). This house had everything we needed, and more!!
3. There is a game room that is full of games. A bunch of us played Settlers of Catan, and it was the first time we had ever played on a perfect gaming table.
4. The pictures do not do it justice. The view is amazing. It was a field of grass that separated you from a beach with barely anyone on it.
5. Everything was clean and in good shape.
We will definitely rent here again!

|A true gift, A much needed trip! An amazing owner!>|
|I don't even know where to begin to put into words how meaningful this trip was for my 15 year old daughter and I. We decided at the last moment to head to Longbeach for the 4th of July, and there was absolutely nothing available. Not even camping space. I happened across this HUGE and beautiful home, and I thought, I deserve this! Along with my daughter. So she rounded up a couple of her pals and off we went! There is NO way to describe the beauty and seclusion of this home. It literally took my breath away when we entered the front door. But before that, when you think "gated community", you imagine an actual neighborhood! There were only a few homes there, and Toby, the owner of the home we were staying in, owned one of the others! Let me start with the amenities in the home. There is absolutely NOTHING you could ever need here. There was every kind of cooking item, utensils, even spices, along with a cupboard of every kind of drinking glass you could imagine. The rooms were large and beautiful. It was literally a short walk directly to the ocean. The view was breathtaking. Not to mention, EVERY single cup, dish, pot, pan, etc.Was perfectly labeled. The fridge and dishwasher were new and the home was SPOTLESS. As if there could be more, there is a game room with beautiful French doors with shelves of every game you could imagine, from floor to ceiling! He even had a small perfectly organized craft area! Outside there is a large beautiful hammock that can fit 2. That was my favorite spot. Almost spiritual, one day as I watched the sunset. I don't have one negative thing to say about this home. I would have stayed forever, we did actually end up having a medical situation, and Toby was kind and accommodating. The last day we were there, they were installing a HUGE hot tub facing the beach, right on the lower patio! I'm hoping to go back next year. This trip was actually life altering in a lot of different ways, but what stood out the most, was the care that the owner puts into his homes. And his patrons. He was always promptly answered any questions we had. This home is one of those places you just have to "see" to "believe"! There is also a ping pong table in the garage, and the beds are soft and new. A TV in the master suite & a huge one in the family room, not to mention, BEACH TOWELS & extra blankets to wrap up in. I could go on forever, but I will end with this, the owner made everything easy and stress free. I'd recommend it to anyone. : )|

|Stunning home and view>|
|This home has it all. Fully equipped kitchen, luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms and giant TVs. The view of the ocean is second to none. I loved relaxing with my morning coffee on the second floor balcony with the ocean view. If you want to enjoy an amazing place in an amazing location - this is the place for you.|
|Brenda A. (review from Vrbo)|
|I rented this home for my son and wife to stay after their wedding...and oh, what a beautiful home for a honeymoon suite! They could not think of one thing this home could have had, to make this their perfect honeymoon! Don't know how anyone could be disappointed!|

|An amazing place to make life long memories!>|
|Beautiful property inside and out. Fantastic location with private access to the beach and everything needed for a fun time. We had seven adults and five kids and had more than enough room inside and out. The hottub is a great bonus. Kitchen has every gadget and appliance one could possibly need. Very responsive owner too. We had an amazing time here, and can't wait to come back!|
|Ryan (review from Airbnb)|
|Out of all the places I've stayed this was by far the most organized and accommodating. I felt like I was at my home away from home right away. Everything was way above my expectation!|
|Dylan (review from Airbnb)|
|Staying at Toby's beach grass villa was more than our family could have asked for. We are a large family, and this tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished space made us all feel at home... only better! For us the center piece of our stay was the moviesque beach grass view as sceen from the sunset oriented hot tub or any of the large windows. Bisecting this view was our own sandy beach path, a short walk to beachcombing. Moving inside: a jacuzzi surrounded by glass, a wall of games and art supplies, drawers full of alphabetized DVDs, a large TV, and cozy sofas, chairs, blankets, and pillows facilitated deep relaxation and joy. This was my first Airbnb experience, and Toby's welcoming and accommodating attitude made our stay at this beatiful and organized beach house memorable and my experience with Airbnb great. We look forward to our next trip to Long Beach, WA.|

|Very nice, big, well organized home.>|
Easily accommodated our family reunion. Good separation of space allowed for everyone to stretch out and do the activities of choice. Two dining room tables allowed for one to be a puzzle table. Separate game room allowed for on going poker tournament. Large kitchen with almost everything you can imagine ever needing in a kitchen, but no pie plate, so I had to make tarts, muffins, cakes, instead. Everything was clean and pretty new. The beds were the most comfy vrbo beds I've ever slept in. Could have used another shower; There's only two, with one of them in the master bedroom, so most of the family ended up sharing the one main shower. With no designated foot bath, keeping sand out of the hot tub was difficult. Owner was well organized, communicative, and kind.
Outdoor foot bath is in the works. Thank you for the kind remarks.

|Amazing Beach Home!>|
We cannot say enough about how much we truly enjoyed our stay at "Ocean Trail". The owner has thought of EVERYTHING!! It is so comfortably appointed from the most amazing beds and linens, to dishes and every appliance and gadget that even the most gourmet chef might want or need. The game room is amazing for families who like that sort of entertainment, and the walk to the beach is short and easy to maneuver. We look forward to our next stay at "Ocean Trail", and hope to share this beautiful home with our other friends and family members.
The Widle Family:)
|Gregg (review from Airbnb)|
We really enjoyed our stay!
On our arrival the house very clean and everything looked quite new.
There were 12 of us for a 60th birthday party weekend. The home handled our group well and we really never felt crowded.
The house is extremely well equipped, especially the kitchen. There are small appliances and gadgets we didn't know existed.
Everyone enjoyed the nice beds and were impressed with the quality of bedding, linens etc.
All and all a great house in a nice quiet location. We'd definitely recommend a stay here!

|Perfect Beach Getaway!>|
This place is just MAGIC! It's incredibly spacious but still feels so cozy for a cool Long Beach weekend. I loved the private access to the beach, it made the weekend getaway feel just that, a peaceful and secluded getaway.
The house is absolutely beautiful and stocked with any amenity you would need. I spent my weekend here playing board games, having delicious meals and walking on the beach. I stayed here just after a busy week of traveling and it was the perfect place to unwind and relax.
This house is perfect for groups or a big family. It's big enough for everyone to have their own space and privacy. It's so luxurious and comfortable, and was an absolute treat to stay in! I can't WAIT to come back and make more memories at this house! :)
|Joel (review from Airbnb)|
This was one of the best equipped and most comfortable vacation tantalus I've ever stayed in. Wonderfully organized with everything you could need aside from groceries. Luckily the store was minutes down the road.
Usually rentals have crappy beds, but we were delighted by the awesome comfy cozy beds at this house.
The wall of board games, excellent movie selection, Xbox games, made time inside fun. The private path to the ocean was well maintained.

|Treasure at the Beach! >|
|Wow!!!! Amazing is an understatement, this ocean front property left us speechless! The house is immaculant, the master bedroom is a dream- double shower, jacuzzi tub and a breath taking view. It's just a short walk down to the beach where our family could play. My kids stayed entertained in style! Can't wait to book our next stay!|
|Alex (review from Airbnb)|
This house was fantastic. It's a great place for a get away and the location is as good as it gets.
From the start Toby was a great host and made the whole process very easy for us to get situated. He was readily available if we had any questions or concerns.
When we arrived the house was spic-n-span. I love organization and the kitchen blew my mind when it came to that. Everything was label marked and it had every type of utensil, appliance, dish, etc that you could possibly need. This kind of organization is seen throughout the house making cleaning up exceptionally easy. Even the game room that has at least 100 different games/puzzles is labeled.
The house had a private walkway to the beach. The beachfront outside of the house was perfect, there weren't crowds, cars, sticks, etc
The weather was perfect for a BBQ and laying in the hammock. Lying out on the decks viewing the sunset were great as well.
Overall this house was amazing and would recommend it to anyone that wants to have a great experience.

|Beachfront Dream Home>|
This home is the most comfortable elegant home I've ever stayed in. The private path to the beach is such a nice walk. The gourmet kitchen has everything you would want/need. The master suite Is huge with the most comfortable adjustable King bed, a sitting area overlooking the ocean, with an outside private deck. The master bath has a jacuzzi tub overlooking the ocean to watch the sunset and a huge double shower. Plenty of bedrooms/bathrooms for everyone. This home has multiple areas for reading, watching tv, dining and seats so many comfortably. The game room is just jaw dropping. The bonus of this house is the organization. Gave me great ideas for my own home. We will be back!
To sum it up...wonderful, wonderful, wonderful... Thanks for sharing your home with us!

|This was the most amazing vacation I have ever had! This house was absolutely equipped with everything you could ever need, and more. The master bedroom was a dream, with the most comfortable bed you will ever sleep in and an ocean view to top it all off! The attention to detail in this home really floored me. The beach was only a short walk away, and everything was exceptionally easy to find. Toby made it easy to plan my vacation, and was very prompt to respond to any questions we had during out stay. I HIGHLY recommend this house to anyone looking for a perfect vacation.|

|What a wonderful opportunity to visit Long Beach in style. Waking up on a beautifully clear morning and sitting on the private master suite deck sipping our morning coffee watching the waves was breathtaking. As with all of Toby's rentals, this one is well stocked with plenty of kitchen gadgets to make a quick meal or a gourmet feast. The private beach access made for an easy walk to the beach with our firewood and supplies for a pleasant evening hanging out visiting around the fire. There is plenty of room in this home for a large group, but was cozy enough for just a few people.|
