The number of guests you listed and paid for on your reservation is
the number of people allowed in the house/property. This home is not to be used as a gathering place. Please contact me for any exceptions to this.
If you would like to bring a dog, please contact me first.
This home is on a septic system. ONLY flush toilet paper.
This home is non-smoking (whatever you smoke)
I have neighbors who are not on vacation, use quiet voices after 10.
Use and enjoy the hot tub, but please leave the water in good condition. If, after use, the water is cloudy, let me know so I can schedule a service call.
When you book this house, you do so with the understanding that scheduled maintenance may happen during your visit (landscaper, hot tub guy etc)
Park on the driveway only, not on the lawn, sand, or shared road.
Hiding damage leads to extra charges. The cleaning process slows to a crawl once we discover unreported damage. Now we have to double check the whole house for damage and missing items.
Remember, this is someone's home. Please treat it in the fashion you would want others to treat yours.

|Such a well appointed property. Host is responsive and easy to work with. Listing is accurate- tons to do on the property. Very clean and organized. Short walk through the dunes to access the beach. We’ll definitely be back!!|
|Alison H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Wonderful family vacation>|
|Everything about our stay was perfect! Everything was exactly as pictured or described. Nothing was overlooked. Very thoughtful owners. The property and home is very well cared for. Would absolutely stay here again!|
|Lisa (review from Airbnb)|
|The house was a perfect location, quick easy path to the beach and close to the town of long beach. The weather was bad while we were staying but it was perfect because our teenagers loved the game room and hot tub. Overall the house was very well stocked and clean. Great stay!|
|Ryan J. (review from Vrbo)|
|One of a kind stay!>|
|We had an amazing time with the family at this property. They had everything we needed. The game room and hot tub were amazing. The house and property were immaculate. The host was responsive and a pleasure to work with. We would stay here again without hesitation!|
|Mari Z. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beach Cabin Perfection>|
|This property rises to the top. So many amenities. We were truly spoiled. The home is pristine. The yard is also a vacation on its own. Will definitely be back.|
|Nick a. (review from Vrbo)|
|Outstanding home! No lack of anything. Three game consoles, too many board games to play. Directv. Outside games are awesome. A bit of a stroll to the beach, but there is beach access nearby where you can just drive on the beach. Will do this again for sure|
|Tina (review from Airbnb)|
|This is probably the most beautiful property we’ve stayed at. The inside is spa like and spotless and very nicely decorated. The outside grounds are gorgeous, better than the pictures. A great get away- easy walk to the beach, easy drive into Long Beach. Toby was an excellent host with great communication and recommendations. Would highly recommend and would love to stay again!|
|Ellie P. (review from Vrbo)|
|Amazing family cabin!>|
|My sons (ages 13 and 8) had a blast at this cabin! Video games, pool table, hot tub, tvs in every room… There was everything we could ever want (and more!). Everything about the house is thoughtful and artfully curated — even down to the books on the shelf. Loved it! We will be back!|
|Craig (review from Airbnb)|
|Awesome place with great amenities!|
|Clarissa P. (review from Vrbo)|
|Lovely property with lots of amenities! Everything is clean and well taken care of. We would definitely return to this property.|
|Kayla (review from Airbnb)|
|Great Airbnb! Has everything you need!|
|Andrea (review from Airbnb)|
|Fantastic house and location. Couldn’t ask for anything more.|
|Carolin (review from Airbnb)|
|Great place with so many fun things to do. Short walk to the beach. The place and beach were very quiet and peaceful. Toby was a great host.|
|Ellyn (review from Airbnb)|
|This is by far the nicest Air B&B we have ever stayed in! It was a fun location to gather with our adult children over Thanksgiving. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped, so don't feel like you need to bring a special pan or device. Our adult kids enjoyed the game room, the hot tub, and walks on the beach. It is nice to have heated bathroom floors during the winter! I would not hesitate to stay here again.|
|Maya (review from Airbnb)|
|If you want to have a comfortable and luxurious vacation this is your spot. Easy access to the beach. Wonderful amenities for the home. Beautifully manicured backyard with fire pit and Jacuzzi. Perfect family getaway|
|Stephanie (review from Airbnb)|
|We loved our stay at the beach cabin. The place was clean and well designed. We felt spoiled and relaxed the whole trip. Our host was also very responsive to any questions we had. Long Beach was fantastic too. We will stay again!!|
|Lindsay (review from Airbnb)|
|Five stars is not enough to rate this incredible home and host! This home is just stunning. If you want to stay somewhere that not only radiates warmth and luxury, but also truly feels like home, then this place is for you! My now husband and I rented this beautiful mansion of a cabin to prepare for and recuperate from our wedding, and the memories that this home (and Toby!) provided us will last a lifetime.|
|Caleb (review from Airbnb)|
|This place is jawdroppingly perfect. The property is beautiful and taken care of meticulously. The house is stocked with everything you could ever need and more. 5 minute walk to the beach. Would stay here again without thinking.|
|Elizabeth (review from Airbnb)|
|This place is completely jaw dropping! It’s off the beaten path a bit and the trees and property make it feel secluded and private. The amenities make it feel luxurious while still feeling homey - totally worth the stay!! We hope to stay here again soon!!!|
|One of our favorite's>|
|When booking a road trip vacation Long Beach always comes up, simply because BeachhouseWa properties are hard to beat! Rain or shine this place is amazing! This is our 4th time and planning our 5th soon!|
|Meagan Elaine (review from Airbnb)|
Don’t think twice…book a stay at this beautifully and mindfully curated space. It was the perfect long weekend getaway from Seattle. I’ve stayed in AirBnBs all over the world and the manicured property, cleanliness, organization, and both the indoor & outdoor amenities are absolutely unmatched. The beach is just a short & lovely walk through dunes…and the cute town area is a quick drive away.
Wish we could have stayed a whole week; can’t wait to return!
|Phavy (review from Airbnb)|
|This is our 2nd time staying at Toby’s property in Long Beach! Everything is so well stocked, clearly labeled, clean, and organized. The handbook will tell you everything you need. We also love that Toby allows dogs on his property. It is so hard to find an Airbnb that allows dogs but it was so easy with Toby. The outdoor space, heated bathroom floors, & well stocked games/entertainment were our favorite! We also loved that the beach was walkable and pretty much private since we came during a weekday in September. We loved staying here and will definitely be coming back next year!|
|Alex (review from Airbnb)|
|Had a great weeklong trip at Toby's place. He had high quality products in great condition and the location was really nice and private, with virtually a private beach because it being a bit North of town. The house was perfect for our dog and seven-month old too; Toby had some baby things that reduced the amount of stuff we had to pack. Also the best landscaped rental I've ever seen.|
|All you could need! >|
|We stayed a week and enjoyed every minute of it! The attention to details on guest needs was amazing! You didn’t need for anything! The only thing needed maybe would be a fan for those stuffy nights when it gets hot. The gardens and grounds were amazing! Love the secret garden path!|
|We had the most relaxing time at Beach Cabin this past week. The amenities were top-notch and the kids had a fantastic time playing the arcade, pool, having golf-toss tournaments, beach excursions, and movie nights! What a wonderful cabin under the trees!|
|William "Mack" R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beach Relaxation Supreme>|
I cannot say enough about Toby's Rental Homes... they are simply the Top of the line places to stay. The Beach Cabin was beyond that with so many things for us and our Grandkids to do... we could have stayed fully entertained without leaving the property. Toby's outdoor games were the big hit along with as the Grandpa, I got to introduce them to my Video Games of old and give them the 'High Scores' to chase.
During our stay we were visited by Squirrel, Deer and even a small Black Bear looking for open Garbage Cans! Our two Grandkids were amazed. There very simply is not enough that I can say about supreme property owners like Toby that take pride in their homes!
We will be back!!!
|WA Beach Cabin - Exceptional Accommodations >|
|A spectacular estate -- beautiful grounds and exceptionally well equipped and managed home. Quite apart from the beautiful ocean views a short walk from the grounds, there are so many ways to relax and enjoy time with family on the grounds. Plus, the owner is easy to work with, too! I look forward to a return visit.|
|Andrew (review from Airbnb)|
|Exceptional comfort and convenience. Dozens of options to please any guest. Hot tub, grill, ping pong, billiards, fooseball, retro arcade machine, Xbox, ps4, wii all with childhood classics. Pretty short walk to a wide, long, flat beach. Was perfect for a lazy weekend but would be a perfect spot for a small family vacation. Host was clear with sharing information and expectations. Keep dogs off the furniture, run the dishes at the end, take the trash out and take the sheets of the bed. Overall a worth whole trip for the price. Slight knock on the location because you can’t beat east coast beaches and sun :)|
|Jim (review from Airbnb)|
|This place is amazing! The grounds are spectacular. The kitchen is stocked with high quality items and has everything you could possibly want. Lots and lots of games and activities. Clean and spacious. Toby is easy to communicate with and very accommodating. This is by far the best vacation rental we have ever used!|
|Crystal (review from Airbnb)|
|Doesn’t get better. So well thought out & Toby has literally thought of everything! Such beautifully maintained home & grounds. We just loved our time in this beautiful home. Thanks again Toby! 💕|
|Nathan L. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful home, beautiful property>|
|This house is on a really large lot, with an amazing wooded area complete with a short walking trail, benches, and lighting. There were enough activities available to keep the whole family busy and happy. The house itself was very comfortable and clean. We loved the view from the deck as well.|
|Michelle A. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful at the Beach!>|
This home and property are far and above regular listings. It has everything one would want for the perfect stay at the ocean. Lots of fun extras too... Great central location. Close to town and a short walk or drive to the beaches. The owner is readily available if any question arises and he's a really nice guy to boot!
We will be staying here again in future and look forward to doing so. Great experience : )
|Annie (review from Airbnb)|
|The beach cabin was a great place to retreat and recharge. We had almost all the amenities we have at home and felt comfortable staying for several days. Our kids had a blast playing in the yard, hot tubbing, riding scooter on the long driveway, and going to the beach. We rarely left the cabin and beach area and we’re never left with nothing to do. Although we packed games and puzzles, we didn’t need them since the house was stocked! The only thing to be aware of is that the upstairs master is up a spiral staircase so it was hard for us to navigate going up there with a small baby. We elected to stay on the main floor with the baby and were very comfortable. Overall, it was a fantastic stay.|
|Jenny J. (review from Vrbo)|
|Thank you we had a great time!|
|Francesca (review from Airbnb)|
|One of (if not the best) AirBnB I’ve ever rented. It will exceed your expectations and only leaving you wishing you’d stayed longer! The beds are very comfortable, the house was pristine upon our arrival and the kitchen was better stocked than my own. Driving onto the property after a day out fishing, visiting a beach or exploring a park - was like entering an oasis. The landscaping is absolutely beautiful. I truly cannot say enough about how great this house was. I will absolutely rent again!|
|Jim (review from Airbnb)|
|We had high hopes for this house and it lived up to all of them. This wasn’t like most airbnbs — nothing is breaking or broken, everything you would ever need is there. The beach is close and the landscaping was awesome. Will definitely stay again.|
|Karley (review from Airbnb)|
This place was very nice for sure. However, literally got a call on my honeymoon requesting money for salt and pepper shakers we accidentally packed and a spatula that somehow was put on us to pay for due to it melting or something. I found it very petty to be contacted regarding these items and having to pay for them. The place was over 2400 for 3 days. We didnt trash it and it seems way to over the top to be charged for that stuff. We were already nervous staying there based on the phone conversation prior to renting as well as his hand book. Just be careful renting with him and follow all the rules to a T Or he will charge you
I was not aware it was her honeymoon, and would gladly of called another time if she had asked me to. I call as a courtesy when things are missing and broken because I do not like to charge my guests without speaking to them first. And while I did appreciate her business, and she did leave the house in good condition, I would prefer my items left unpacked. I did not feel asking for them back was over the top. I want the house to be in great condition and fully equipped for when you arrive.
|Darron S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Very classy home and fully stocked. The kids loved the games room, ping pong, and all the video games. The hot tub is huge and house/groups impeccable.|
|Wendell (review from Airbnb)|
|Nice, clean and private! Will stay here again if we are ever back in the area.|
|Stephanie G. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful home and so much to do!>|
|My family and I do an annual Long Beach trip, this was the first time we stayed in this home and it was one of the best trips we’ve had! This home is absolutely beautiful, clean and equipped with everything that you might need. Our favorite part of our stay here was everything that we got to do. In the garage, you can play ping pong, foosball, pool, etc. and outside you can play corn hole and ladder golf. We had such a blast with so many games, there was always something to do. There are a ton of board games, puzzles, books and video games, you’ll never be bored. Next time, we’ll have to extend our stay a night or two so that we have time to throughly enjoy everything! The home is pretty secluded and the grounds are so pretty. Our dogs had so much fun in such a large grassy space and we got to see some deer roam the grounds really early. Access to the beach is on a private path and the home has a beach wagon, chairs, and towels that we got to use. We look forward to our stay here next year!|
|Megan S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful & relaxing stay>|
|We absolutely loved our stay at the Beach Cabin. The property is impeccably designed, both inside and outside. So many amenities, especially in the kitchen. Our family enjoyed the hot tub, and it was the nicest hot tub that we have experienced in a vacation rental. Toby was a wonderful host. Many reviews mentioned being overwhelmed by the labeling in the house, yet I found this to be really helpful with where things go. Perfect stay!|
|Ryan (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby’s cabin is fantastic! It is a great escape, and everything you need is at your fingertips. My family and I enjoyed our time and will definitely be back.|
|Kayin (review from Airbnb)|
|We could not ask for anything better. It was such an amazing place!|
|allison g. (review from Vrbo)|
|The property was beautiful and very clean! Walking distance to the beach and a short drive into town. We really enjoyed our stay. If you have mobile babies or toddlers beware, the staircase in the kitchen is a huge temptation. I recommend bringing a baby gate.|
|Mali M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Spring Break retreat>|
|The property was just as listed and beautiful. Unfortunately the weather was unusually cold, which is a chance you take at the coast in April, so we didn't get to totally take advantage of all the fun outdoor activities. It would be nice if the hot tub trellis was actually solid and kept the rain out, but we enjoyed it anyway. The owner was very responsive to our needs. I would highly recommend.|
|Alex (review from Airbnb)|
|Wonderful space and lots of fun things to do on the property and around|
|can't ask for anything better>|
|My friends and I go on a spring getaway every year (this is our 8th year), our 2nd time at this property. Last year, we were impressed by how the place looked exactly like the pictures, how clean and how well organized it was. We didn't think it could get any better- but it did the second time around! The booking process is easy. The website provided when you book is user friendly. I appreciated the house manual, local recommendations, and the departure checklist. When we arrived at the property, we quickly noticed how the grass looked so much greener than the previous year. The entrance/garden/yard is so inviting. After a year of multiple groups using this property, you'd think it would be more worn out. That wasn't the case. It is evident that there is a great team that keep this property so well maintained. Last year, I noted that Marie Kondo would be pleased with how organized this place was. This might be a turn off for some but it brought me so much joy! It made it easy to find the things I needed and made the cleaning process so much quicker. I love how there is so much activities and rooms available in this home. Even if it rains, you will not run out of things to do indoor. We spent a lot of time in the kitchen, game room and the hot tub. Some of the improvements/additions that we enjoyed: (1) larger hot tub, (2) the addition of kitchen tools, especially the iron skillets! (3) the arcade box and (4) this one might sound silly but how much greener the grass was than the previous year! The only thing that we were bummed about was the missing ring toss in the game room- if you have never been here before, it wouldn't even matter. We were only bummed out because of the memory/laughs we had playing it the previous year. I've seen reviews about the construction in the area. This was ongoing during our first time on the property. It didn't bother us then, it didn't bother us now. The workers are inside the house. We didn't even notice they were there until we looked out the window and saw the parked cars. The surrounding trees gave us privacy. Overall, Toby is a great host. It seems like he really thought about what an individual may want or need in a vacation home and brought that to life. We requested to extend our stay an extra day and Toby was quick to respond and very accommodating. Five days was not enough. We look forward to returning in the future!|
|Pamela K. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful space with lots of fun things to do>|
|This is one of the most beautiful VRBO rentals I’ve stayed at. Gorgeous design and exceptionally clean on arrival. There were so many fun things to do - walks to the beach to run the dogs, hot tub, yard games, movies, indoor games, etc. The kitchen had everything we needed. Bathroom was large and accessible for our injured person. Curving stairs were a little scary. This one does have a few more rules than most (everything. must go in it’s labeled spot, cast iron pans must be seasoned, wool blankets will be inspected for dog hair) which I totally get as a home owner, but does stress me out a bit as a vacationer. Overall, we had a great time.|
|Tryge (review from Airbnb)|
|Great place to stay. You won’t be disappointed! They have tons of games and activities to do and the house and the amenities are top notch!|
|Meredith (review from Airbnb)|
|What an amazing place! My friends and I agreed that it was one fo the best Air BnB's we've ever stayed in. The house was immaculate- very clean and well organized. It was easy to find things because everything was labelled, and helped you to remember where to put it when you were done with it. Quick walk to the beach and we even used the clam guns he had at his place to go clamming! Communication with Toby was great, and he ensured we would have a wonderful stay. We can't wait to come back the The Beach Cabin!|
|Janet G. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great Ocean Beach Getaway>|
|This house was amazing!!! There was a short walk to ocean and it was spectacular. We will definitely go back!!!!!!!|

|A beautiful home....>|
Driving into the driveway you get a sense of what you're in for. The lights illuminate the property. Once you enter the home you realize a few things. Toby has a great aesthetic eye and the home is beautiful. From the rustic meets industrial to the extra little things, the game room(s), the heated floors, the hot tub. It is a great home for a family to stay in. Then you look around a little more and realize that as nice as it is, it's not very "cozy". Everything, and I mean everything is labeled. I read Toby's reason for that in the very generic house book and I get it, but it definitely kills the vibe. You will be afraid to touch anything. Having stayed in many houses in the past, I expect a little lived in feel. Maybe a few books and or pamphlets about the area, a guest book (my favorite touch in a rental) this house has none of that. While it certainly wasn't a huge downer it was a downer. The game room(s) are both wonderful and we certainly played many games and had a blast with that. And we did enjoy the hot tub but was always left with the feeling "did I put everything back and do what I was told". With that said the area, town, and beach are great. Very windy, like all the time, but a nice beach. We went on an "adventure" every day and were always happy to return to the home. We did not have much more than 10 minutes of hot water at a time but once we figured out a routine was not a problem. Overall this house really is fabulous. I hope I don't come off as an ingrate, I appreciate every travel experience I get. Just my two cents.
This house and messaging is an evolution of 10 years worth of comments and suggestions. What most people find helpful, others occasionally find off putting. FYI the link for the digital guidebook I send after you book is the way I share information about the local area and attractions Everyone has their vibe, that being said the pictures of this home are a very accurate representation of what you will find. If upon arrival you find you want a more "lived in feel" please feel free to throw some clothes on the floor, I know my family does that everytime we stay :)
|Michelle (review from Airbnb)|
This is a really lovely Airbnb for those who want to hole up in a fancy property with lots of luxurious amenities like a hot tub, entertainment center with lots of movies and video games to choose from, board games, ping pong, pool, cornhole, and more! 10/10 would recommend for families or groups of friends looking for a relaxing, glam-yet-accessible weekend. Toby is a great communicator, and was very responsive every time I sent him a message.
That being said, there are a couple of caveats that visitors should be aware of:
- There's a giant construction site next door that is apparently busy during the week. It's pretty quiet on the weekend, but it does mar the landscape some (especially from the property balconies). Although there's a fence separating the property from the construction site, part of the fence is open...
- The checkout process is pretty extensive and can be intimidating—you need to wash your towels, strip the bedsheets, wash/dry/put away all your dishes, mop floors, any entertainment like movies and board games in the right place, etc. The owner provides labels on where to put anything. While the labels are ultimately helpful, it is a little stressful and intimidating to make sure you're getting it right... especially since there's lots of warnings in the handbook about being charged extra fees if you do something wrong/accidentally misplace something.
The home that is being built next-door mostly just has work been done inside by a small crew. There are trees and a 7 foot fence between this site as well as a large property. The check out list is mostly industry standard. I ask that you start the first load of laundry and not leave dirty dishes. You don’t have to mop the floor but if you bring dogs (this guest did) that you not leave a lot of hair throughout the house. I provide so many extras that the request to put things where you found it allows me to focus the cleaning time on keeping the house sparkling clean. Anyone who is interested can see the complete check out list on the digital guide that I send everyone upon booking, I can also send this before you book if you would like. I almost never charge extra for anything. I do have comprehensive messaging so that me and my valued guests can be on the same page. The most common response I get from people that stay at this home is that they would like to return.
|Andrea (review from Airbnb)|
|Simply stunning and thoughtful property and location. Toby is an attentive and beyond considerate host, and his care shows in the many details of the cabin. We loved the structure and organization and found they made the stay much more easeful. Quality and comfort are found in all elements of this spot and we were so grateful to catch our breath amidst such beauty for a few days. Will look forward to visiting again!|
|Jennifer (review from Airbnb)|
First off, check in was super easy and the communication was great!
The space itself was bright, cheery and open. We really appreciated the abundance of life in the form of plants all around the house.
The kitchen had everything that we needed, which was a wonderful blessing.
Lastly, the amenities went above and beyond any other stay I've ever had; there were board games, video games, outdoor/indoor games, hot tub, fire table, beach supplies, etc!
We have already talked about returning again in the future and I highly recommend any abode by this owner.
|Todd (review from Airbnb)|
|Had a great stay at Toby’s place. Place has everything you need. Very clean and organized. Very well stocked kitchen for cooking. All high end appliances. The heated bathroom floors were really nice. Beds were very comfortable. Game room has great as was the hot tub. Short pleasant walk to the beach. Would definitely stay again.|
|Amanda N. (review from Vrbo)|
|Clean, Nice, and Better than Photos>|
|My family and I loved staying at the beach cabin. We were surprised to find that it was even better than the photos (because the photos are really nice!) and the cabin was the cleanest rental we have ever stayed in. It is also the most well-organized. The kitchen has almost every tool that you could imagine. The hot tub is huge and very clean, the grounds are beautiful, the entertainment is in great condition with tons of options to choose from, and the bathrooms are really nice. The walk to the beach was nice, safe and easy enough for a toddler to handle. Toby was easy to communicate with and responsive. My kids didn't want to leave! We plan to return again in the future.|
|Austin (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby’s house is absolutely gorgeous. Perfect for an escape from busy city life. The house has every creature comfort imaginable, we realized too late that we didn’t need to bring anything but ourselves and some food and clothes. The beach was beautiful and so peaceful. Definitely would recommend to anybody looking for a getaway.|
|Ivy (review from Airbnb)|
|House was beautiful - had absolutely everything you could need. Hot tub was amazing in the evenings. You won’t regret staying here!|

|An awesome place to hang out. Only thing that would make it better would be ocean view. Beautifully landscaped. Very nice amenities inside and out. On our list to use every year. Extremely well cared for.|

|We had the opportunity to stay at this amazing property during the Christmas Holiday. The snow on the trees made it even more beautiful. Easy walk to beach. The property has everything you could every need for a fun vacation.|
|Victoria (review from Airbnb)|
|This home is indeed 'crazy nice'. We loved our stay. Certainly one of the most well-appointed Airbnb homes we've ever experienced. Thoughtful touches everywhere and excellent communication with Toby. Can't wait to revisit in the summertime! A+ Thank you!|
|Rose F. (review from Vrbo)|
|We love doing big family trips where we can go fishing, clamming, and crabbing. This property was the perfect spot!|
|Racheal Joy (review from Airbnb)|
Toby's Beach Cabin does not disappoint.
Directions received were very easy to follow, check-in was a breeze, and the House Manual/Handbook was super useful! Toby was extremely responsive to questions/concerns.
The kitchen kept the cooks in the family very happy (we were there for Thanksgiving). The labels everywhere made it very easy to find & put everything away after use/washing.
The walk to the beach through the dunes is lovely.
Oh! and the heated bathroom floors...sigh...
We had a wonderful time & highly recommend this place for a family week(end) at the coast!
|Chelsea (review from Airbnb)|
Absolutely loved our stay! So much fun stuff to do at the house, everything was labeled and super organized which made it easy to keep track of everything! Rain or shine there’s something fun to do at the beach cabin!
Also super close to town! Very convenient to grab dinner at Roos or breakfast at bensons on a whim!
|John (review from Airbnb)|
|Our stay here could not have been better. Toby clearly spends a lot of time making this place perfect for guests. The kitchen is well-stocked, the entertainment options are numerous, the bed linens and blankets are luxurious, access to the beach is easy. Our favorite activities were running around on the beach with our dog, playing pool in the game room while watching a football game, and relaxing in the enormous hot tub. We look forward to coming back again when it's warmer and dryer. Do not hesitate to book this amazing home!|
|Erin (review from Airbnb)|
|Really beautiful and well stocked home. It was a perfect spot for our wedding weekend on the peninsula. Would love to stay again.|
|Jeremy (review from Airbnb)|
|My wife and I spent two days and nights during an epic rainstorm (apparently a record-breaking west coast bomb cyclone) with our toddler and pup and never needed to leave the property. Tons to do - inside and out - and a great attention to detail on everything from the DVD, video game and board games collection, to the carefully thought-out chef's kitchen and accoutrements, to the ridiculously awesome game room in the garage. Oh, and resort-quality grounds with MORE games, a huge hot tub and even a walking trail around the property! I'm told it's a short walk to the beach from the house, but I wouldn't know....looking forward to the next visit to see for myself. We will definitely be back, Toby is a perfect host who you can tell has a real passion and talent for it!|
|Elizabeth (review from Airbnb)|
|Gorgeous property! The house is lovely, furniture is comfortable, kitchen is stocked, in a great location, and really couldn’t be better! The hot tub is incredible! Lots of space on the property. Easy walk to the beach.|
|Tyson (review from Airbnb)|
The actual property itself was stunning, however there was no mention of a construction site going on next door, that the Host himself was undertaking! That would have been nice to know. Way overboard on communication, constantly reminded us of rules, it very much took away from our relaxing vacation vibe. Charged us for anything extra possible, will not be returning.
Reminding people to check out the house handbook before checkin has more to do with Wifi password, location of commonly used items etc. I hope this doesn't ruin anyone else's vacation vibe because clear communication typically makes for a much better stay. The only extra charge I have is a pet fee, unless of course there is something missing or broken. The house next door has already been built and only has interior work being done. Also there is a 7' fence and trees between properties. This is the first person who has even mentioned this.

|I don't think there is enough space to describe how amazing this place is. I cannot wait to book this on our next trip to Long Beach! Toby is far and away the best owner of any place we have ever stayed. And the house and location is insane. One of the best spots we have ever been.|
|Carson (review from Airbnb)|
|The Beach Cabin was fantastic for our family of 5. An easy walk to the beach with toys and cart provided, while great kitchen and living areas (with an abundance of games, puzzles and books for all ages) allowed us to feel at home. Looking forward to our next visit!|
|Ruthann (review from Airbnb)|
|Hands down one of our favorite vacation rentals! The kitchen is well equipped, there is lots to do on a rainy day, and the walk to the beach is super quick. It’s just far enough north of town so that the beach is a little quieter and more relaxing. Tony is always responsive if you need help with anything or have questions.|
|Vitaliy (review from Airbnb)|
|One of the best Airbnb’s we’ve stayed at. Would recommend this to anyone, if there’s availability I would book ASAP and you won’t regret it. Thanks for having us|
|Anne (review from Airbnb)|
|Had a great time at this cabin! Super clean, so much to do with family and comfortable for a lazy weekend. Great beach access, wonderful kitchen, quiet, comfortable, highly recommend!|
|Deanna J. (review from Vrbo)|
|The house was amazing and owner chatted with us to answer all our questions! Perfect location for everything and made our family vacation perfect with all the games and activities.|
|Hillary (review from Airbnb)|
|We loved our stay at the Beach Cabin! We had a blast playing Wii, ladderball, and cornhole and spending time on the nearby beach (~10 min walk from the house). The landscaping is beautiful and the property includes many thoughtful touches, including hammocks and a fire pit area.|
|Carolyn (review from Airbnb)|
|Beautiful space, just as pictured, with all the amenities we needed as a family of four (fully equipped kitchen, hot tub, toys and books for the kids, beach gear/toys/wagon, etc). Toby has really created something special here -- the beautifully manicured lawns and gardens, handmade furniture, warm and inviting living space, and location within walking distance of the beach made our stay so very memorable. Toby was extremely communicative and it was very easy to find everything we needed. We will certainly be back!|
|Judy (review from Airbnb)|
|Had a great time at the property again. We love how close to the beach we were. Very comfortable and plenty to do.|
|Steven (review from Airbnb)|
|The accommodations and location are outstanding. What an amazing location for our family reunion, located a short, beautiful walk from the beach and ocean. As if that wasn't enough, the entire experience was preceded by clear, helpful communication with the host, Toby. Too many available activities at the home to fully enjoy all of them over our couple day period -- but we hope to come back and stay longer in the near future. I recommend this host and this location without reservation.|
|Carin (review from Airbnb)|
This house is amazing! Everything is so beautiful and well-organized. You will literally not have a moment where you can’t occupy yourself with the activities provided from puzzles to games to ping pong. We had the BEST time in this house. The kitchen is dreamy and now all I want is such an incredible kitchen! #goals
Toby’s communication is super quick and helpful. I had a few questions when we were there and he always responded quickly.
I would return in a heartbeat!
|Lyle M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Absolutely stunning cabin, well-designed and appointed, and fully stocked with everything you need. Toby is a great owner, quick to respond and always on top of things. A five star resort!|
|Nick (review from Airbnb)|
|A really beautiful home in a private setting.|
|Kristin (review from Airbnb)|
|An amazing place to build memories! We spent days surfing, playing table tennis, pool, video games, relaxing in the hot tub, exploring surrounding areas. Toby's home has everything and it is a must stay if you are planning a trip to Long Beach!|
|John M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great stay in Long Beach>|
Our family recently stayed at Toby’s Beach House in Long Beach and had a wonderful time. The house, the kitchen and the grounds are all a “wow!”. Everything was as nice or better than what was described in the listing. There are plenty of fun things to do at the house for all ages. We did not want to leave the house, but It was just a short walk to the beach. Or you can drive as well which was fun.
Town is just a five minute drive, so shopping was convenient as well.
We would definitely recommend this place to families who are interested in visiting Long Beach. We will return.
|Amanda (review from Airbnb)|
|This property is so beautiful! The on line pictures are good but when you see it in person you may be surprised how lovely it .|
|Beverly G. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful house close to beach>|
|The house had everything and more - we had good weather and were mostly outdoors, but enjoyed the game room, cooking, and the very comfortable bed. There is construction going on next door, but we did not hear any noise. We would come back again!|
|Carter (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby’s beach house is beautiful! Easy walk to the beach and only a couple miles out of town, would love to come back!|
|Chris (review from Airbnb)|
|Amazing cabin, super clean and organized, and it has everything one needs and more. Toby is also very responsive and helpful. Would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a great beach getaway!|
|Jennifer (review from Airbnb)|
|The house is exactly as pictured. Everything was really clean and comfortable. We loved all the amenities (hot tub, game room, games etc). The kitchen is really well stocked and everything is clearly labeled so it’s easy to find what you’re looking for. It is about a 5 min drive from the main strip, but it is very quiet and peaceful at the house. It’s a short walk from the beach, which we had entirely to ourselves. We would definitely book this house again!|
|Jenny E. (review from Vrbo)|
|This is a beautiful property with a host who has the comfort and enjoyment of the guests at the front of his mind. The kitchen was the best we've ever found in a vacation rental (sharp knives!!!!) and the bedding rivals that of a 5 star hotel. There was so much more packed into this rental than I remember reading in the description. We cannot wait to visit one of Toby's properties again.|
|Jillian (review from Airbnb)|
The house is beautiful! It has everything that you could need in the kitchen and for hanging at the beach. We had a blast playing games and soaking in the hot tub.
Our stay there was excellent!
We did get blamed for damage that we didn’t do or even notice during our stay.
We were notified that there was two tiny nicks in the counter that I know weren’t caused by me or my family, and a small door to the fire table that was broken when we got there, and I had notified him about on our first night.
So you need to pay close attention to everything when you get there and take and send pictures right away.
|Tim H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Amazing property and house!! Would LOVE to stay there again anytime!!! The owners have a great way of managing the house!|
|Darla (review from Airbnb)|
|Great place for families! We took grandma and our three kids and had plenty of space. Board games, a game room with pool table, ping pong, foos ball, a hot tub, outdoor shower and propane fire pit. This home was clean, comfortable, and beautifully done. Host communicated well and quickly. This is a very special place. We enjoyed being slightly out of town with a quieter section of beach which is just a short walk from the home. Worth the price!|
|Jennifer Quigley Gould|
|Perfect place for a quiet retreat. >|
|What a lovely space with a great cooks kitchen. You just need to show up! Everything is provided: games, beach wagon, ample towels and linens. One of my favorite places to stay on the coast.|
|Maggie (review from Airbnb)|
|All the glowing reviews here are accurate. Lovely stay. Also want to mention that they had a high chair, kids table and chairs set.|
|Ronnie (review from Airbnb)|
This is a gem!
Everything about the Beach Cabin is amazing.
From the fully equipped kitchen(a chefs dream), to the heated bathroom floors, the rec room, the movie/game room and the outdoor hot tub. This place just doesn’t disappoint.
Whether you’re a family with kids or adults on a weekend getaway, you will have an amazing time at the Beach Cabin.
|Sarah (review from Airbnb)|
|It is a beautiful home with amazing amenities from a fully stocked kitchen with tons of counter space for cooking, and crazy extras like a Vitamix and 5 different type of beer glasses, to a fantastic game area in the 'garage'. This resulted in a lot of great family time playing table tennis and pool. Heated bathroom floors and towel racks were a new experience for all of us! The property was beautiful and easy to tell how much Toby cares about the guests and their experience. The beds and bedding were very comfortable and the jetted tub was awesome. We had a couple questions along the way and Toby was very responsive. We highly recommend this place for families with older kids.|
|Michelle (review from Airbnb)|
Marie Kondo would be pleased with this cabin. Everything has a designated spot and WITH LABELS! It made it easier to find things and quicker cleanup. This place has everything you’ll want and need in a vacation rental!
10/10. Definitely sparked joy.
|Matthew (review from Airbnb)|
|Great place! Will stay here again!|
|Matt (review from Airbnb)|
|This home was a terrific getaway near the beach and town. It was a beautiful space with everything you could ever need, plus Toby was a fantastic host. I can’t speak highly enough of our time there. We will be back!|
|James (review from Airbnb)|
|Quite possibly the best Airbnb I have ever stayed at. Literally everything was thought of from a Vitamix to 50 video games and 3 different consoles. Beautiful aesthetic with all the amenities not to mention a quick walk to the beach. 10/10|
|Joe (review from Airbnb)|
|Really nicely remodeled cabin with a great yard that was perfect for the dog!|
|Todd a. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great family get away>|
|Toby's Long Beach house was perfect for our family get away. Everything is so well organized and thought out. We enjoyed a wide variety of board games, movies and video games. Then there is the ping pong table and hot tub. The beach is a short stroll away. The kitchen is well stocked with four different coffee brewing devices and high end appliances. We will definitely be back.|
|Gabe (review from Airbnb)|
|Great place a short walk to the beach. Well run, with lots of amenities. It’s exactly what an Airbnb should be like.|
|Erin (review from Airbnb)|
|This was such a treat, we literally turned off our phones and played games, had meaningful fun, and created memories for our children. My 4 yr old said “mom can we just stay here forever!” Great house, service, and we will totally be back!|
|Brandon (review from Airbnb)|
|This is a great place to kick back and relax while enjoying some time at the coast. Kids had a blast, the home was perfect for our needs. It's a truly beautiful home with lots of personal touches. We'll definitely be back!|
|Miro M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Another great experience>|
|This was our second time staying at this house and just like the first time, the place was 100% ready in every way. Clean, well taken care of, and packed with everything you might possibly need for a beach getaway. Thank you, till next time.|
|Andrea G. (review from Vrbo)|
|Wonderful vacation home>|
This house has literally everything you could need and more! We loved the variety of games from vintage video gaming to pool and ping pong. Everything is very clean and organized. The kitchen is stocked with every appliance you could imagine and a great layout for multiple people to cook together.
Highly recommend this rental!
|Laura (review from Airbnb)|
|This was the best air bnb house we have ever rented. Amazing tub (really whole master bathroom was epic), super comfortable beds, and a great kitchen. Lots of space and 4 toilets! Movie and game collection was outstanding.|
|Chris C. (review from Vrbo)|
|Living large in Long Beach>|
|This property has everything to escape for the weekend and relax. From the large master bathroom with jetted tub and heated floor to the massive TV and DVD collection in the entertainment room that invites you to cuddle up and enjoy a classic movie with your special one, it had everything you could want in a beach house. Thanks for making our weekend away special and we will definitely be back again!|
|Pam (review from Airbnb)|
Amazing place with more amenities than one can imagine!
Beautiful home filled with thoughtful items and upscale furnishings.
The only thing you need to bring along is food
|Darci (review from Airbnb)|
|What a clean, stylish, well-organized home filled with many amenities ( hot tub, pool table, foosball, ping pong,) Add in the quick walk to the beach and you have the perfect get-away place.|
|Bevyn Rowland (review from Airbnb)|
Absolutely the most BEAUTIFUL dog-friendly house I've ever stayed in! Abundance of comforts at every turn. Towels, linens, pillows...are all great quality. The kitchen is beyond well-appointed! All sorts of coffee-making apparati: we used all 4 methods to make coffee. We cooked serious meals in that kitchen...and the outdoor grill was great.
The outdoor hot tub and shower are awesome...you can hear the ocean with the jets off.
Game room downstairs was adorable, functional, and a ton of fun!
Really appreciated how it felt like we were staying at a friend's house...it's clear this home is well-loved. And we loved it while we were there.
|garry h. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great area, very relaxing close to everything.>|
|Nice home not as close to the ocean as I thought but in walking distance. There is every game you can imagine there. The house had everything you needed from house wares to recreational activities.|
|Ashley (review from Airbnb)|
We stayed at Toby’s beach cabin in October. I picked this spot based on the great amenities fully expecting some rainy days and I was glad I did! We went with 3 kids and everyone was fully entertained on our 2 rainy days while there, lots of boards games, video games, movies, and children’s toys to entertain for ages 1-100. Not to mention the garage game room, my kids (and us adults) thought that was awesome.
The walk to the beach was quick and the
provided wagon was helpful to carry all our wood, drinks, and 1 year old :). Everything we needed was provided, I can’t think of one thing that was missing.
The house was very clean and organized, making it easy to find everything. There was beautiful touches everywhere, comfy beds, and a great master bath. The kitchen was great and had better gadgets than I have in my own home, We really enjoyed cooking there.
I communicated with Toby a few times during our stay and he was always quick with responses. We would love to come back and stay again if the opportunity arises! I would definitely recommend this spot to friends.
|Scott (review from Airbnb)|
|Great place to stay in Long Beach WA. The kitchen is very enjoyable so much that our family spent most of our time cooking.|
|Ruthann (review from Airbnb)|
|This rental has everything you need and more! The kitchen is very well stocked with every gadget you can think of and the master bathroom is amazing and has heated floors! Both my husband and I loved this rental.|
|Richie (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby did an amazing job and then house was more than expected. Can’t wait to go back.|
|Krista (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby's place is clean and organized. It has everything you need and then some. My boys and two dogs enjoyed the location and what the house had to offer. The property the house is on is gorgeous. It is only a 5 min drive to town and a 5 min walk to beach. There are plenty of games to play with your family and big meals to cook in the grand kitchen.|
|Ed G. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful home! I will return!>|
|The house was absolutely beautiful and fully stocked! It was nice to have everything labeled so we knew where to return everything we used. The house keeper missed a few things but other than that it was pretty clean! The location was perfect and I loved the woody feel but close enough to hear the ocean! The outdoor shower made for easy sand clean up! I will be returning for future vacations.|
|Megan (review from Airbnb)|
|Incredibly well stocked and organized. Great stay!|
|Judy E. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great time again>|
|This was the perfect place for us. Great property at a great location. Can't wait to go back next year. Neat and clean with everything you can possibly need to have a great time!|
|Shayla M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Everything was just as described on the property listing. We almost ran out of propane but Toby was super quick and helpful to make sure we were resupplied. I loved the organization of the kitchen as it made everything easy to find and then put back away. The master bathroom was a huge bonus and the hot tub out back was fantastic although we took the time to hose off all of the surrounding concrete because pine needles and sand seem to build up quickly and we didn't want to track it into the house or hot tub. The beach was accessible for most of our family by using the gravel driveway, then a larger mowed path and then a small grassy trail however for people with any mobility issues I would say drive to the Cranberry beach entrance just up the road. Overall a very enjoyable stay!|
|Jenna (review from Airbnb)|
|The house had everything you could need plus more. You seriously only need to bringing your clothes and food. There was so much to do in the house and it was so organized. We can’t wait to go back or rent one of Toby’s other homes.|
|Anonymous (review from Vrbo)|
|Our family only stayed for a few days but the house is nice and just a short walk to the beach. It sits on a large property is mostly private and is very quiet. This is the second time that we have stayed in one of Toby’s homes. The kitchens are always well stocked and organized and the selection of games for the kids to play is also impressive. The patio is great and receives sun most of the afternoon and into the early evening. We had a couple of questions and someone responded right away. Toby’s customer service is great and I highly recommend staying at one of his homes.|
|Darbie (review from Airbnb)|
|Jeremy M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Family week at the beach>|
|Our family of 4 has been to Long Beach many times and stayed at a variety of places, but this rental was probably our favourite so far. Photos are accurate and place was extremely clean and tidy. Beach is a bit of a walk, but not too far. House was extraordinarily well stocked with kitchen items, games, beach accessories, etc. Construction next door was a non-issue, as we only saw workers there once. Only downside is that the top floor bedroom doesn’t have a door, not does the bottom floor couch/TV area, so noise can be an issue if everyone goes to bed at different times. This wasn't an issue for us. All in all the house was hard to beat, and this may become our go to rental in long beach. Great house, great location. Hard to beat.|
|Roxane L. (review from Vrbo)|
|AMAZING Beach House!>|
|The beach house was AMAZING! Better than I expected. The pictures don’t do it justice. It has everything and then some. It was extremely clean and so very well organized. It made it easy to put things back in its place. It truly felt like home. Very comfortable. Thank you Toby for answering all my questions while I was there. I would definitely return.|
|Jesse (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby’s place was absolutely terrific for our entire family - my wife & I were so pleased with everything and the kids absolutely loved it!! Toby had so many thoughtful activities & things for our whole family to enjoy. The hot tub, game room and all the beach related equipment such as the Tommy Bahama chairs, beach wagon, umbrella & clam digging shovels was all so perfect. The gourmet kitchen and all the different, really nice kitchen appliances made it fun & enjoyable to prepare meals, BBQ and eat-in. I can’t say enough about how much we all enjoyed Toby’s place - from the helpful instructions, to the overall cleanliness and all the thoughtful amenities, it was an awesome place for us to stay! Our family didn’t want to leave!! :)|

|Everything to make a Vacation Perfect>|
|This house is absolutely perfect for a family vacation at the beach!|
|Molly (review from Airbnb)|
|The house was amazing. Super clean and beds that felt like you were sleeping in the clouds. There was more than enough amenities to keep everyone busy and having a great time. We will definitely book this home again.|
|Josh K. (review from Vrbo)|
|Perfect Weekend Getaway>|
|This property was peaceful and relaxing. There are some homes close by but you could never tell by how quiet it is. The beach is just a short walk fown a sandy path yet far enough away from Seagulls. We will definitely be returning.|
|Jenny A. (review from Vrbo)|
|We had a wonderful time! The place was so comfortable and our son loved the toys...endless entertainment for all of us. The beds and pillows were luxurious-if we didn’t have a toddler we would have slept all day!! Thank you, Toby!|
|Christina (review from Airbnb)|
|Super fun spot!|
|Robert (review from Airbnb)|
|Great house, great location. This house had everything and more we needed. Three people and a baby all had private rooms.|
|Deanna (review from Airbnb)|
|House is impeccably organized. Our 4 year old did well with the accessibility of toys and games, our 2 year old was more challenging. We had great weather and it allowed the kiddos to play outside in the big and safe yard. Bring sand toys! Walk to the beach was totally doable and the wagon provided was a big help. Toby was an amazing host and we would rent from him again in a second!|
|Maddy (review from Airbnb)|
|Great space with EVERY amenity you can think of. Clearly a well cared for home, will be back for sure.|
|Sarah U. (review from Vrbo)|
|Immaculate House near the beach>|
|This house has everything you could possibly need and more for a family getaway to the beach. The house is perfect size for 2 families. My kids enjoyed the Wii and Nintendo 64 which the house supplies along with hundreds of movies all arranged by category. There is an amazing shower in the master bath and jet tub for relaxing. There is also hundreds of board games for entertainment along with a pool table, ping pong and foosball table in the garage connected to the house. My kids also loved the hot tub and the outdoor shower was an amazing touch when they got sandy at the beach. They had all the kitchen appliances needed to make dinner at home one night as well. This house was more organized than any house I’ve stayed and made me feel like a queen with all the upgrades. I look forward to staying here in the future or checking out any of Toby’s other houses as I’m sure they are just as nice.|
|Crystal (review from Airbnb)|
|Beautiful home! The home was clean and ready for us when we arrived. The kitchen is amazing, it has anything and everything for cooking. There was a mixer, blender, hot dog cooker, ice cream maker, Belgium waffle maker, I could go on but there were so much. We had no issue cooking our meals. The pool table, ping pong table and foosball table kept the kids entertained. The hot tub was on and perfect temp. There are also many movies to choose from and games. It is a nice walk to the beach and close to town. We enjoyed our stay.|
|Roger U. (review from Vrbo)|
|Amazing place to stay. Easy access to the beach. Nice high-end appliances. Gourmet Kitchen. Fantastic shower. If you like coffee there was a regular coffee pot, a French press, 2 Keurigs one in the kitchen and one in the master bathroom! Loved the heated floor in the master bathroom too! I had a question about the house and the owner got back to me within a couple of minutes! How great is that? We would recommend this place to our friends.|
|Courtney W. (review from Vrbo)|
|Wonderful Beach House>|
|Wow, what a great house! Everything we needed and more. We especially loved all of the beach gear that was available. The kids loved the roller blades and longboards. Everything was perfect, thanks!|
|Kevin D. (review from Vrbo)|
We really enjoyed our vacation in Long Beach. The weather was typical for March with a couple days of rain but the way this house is set up it didn’t matter. Board games, video games, pool table, ping pong, dvds, hot tub! We had so much fun!
We will be back!!!
|Anonymous (review from Vrbo)|
|We had a wonderful time! Awesome kitchen and so many fun things to do at the house. We loved having our pups with us too!|
|Naomi A. (review from Vrbo)|
|Comfortable, well equipped, beautiful setting>|
|We always enjoy Toby's homes. They've become a favorite family and friends getaway. The beds are all amazingly comfortable, the kitchen well equipped for cooking, the beach close, and an abundance of fun things to do in the house.|
|Theodore W. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful home. Lots of emenities. We liked it a lot>|
|We loved the house. Short walk to the beach. The house had everything you would need. Full of games, movies, and video games for the kids. Every dish, glass, or appliance you could want. Hot tub, pool table, foosball, and ping pong. Great experience|
|Travis P. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great house, owner has thought of everything>|
|We stayed for 4 nights in the beginning of March for my wife's birthday. The house is very well equipped, and the owner is very well organized. There are instructions for everything, which is really nice when you're trying to figure out a lot of things at someone else's house. It actually helped greatly when cleaning up and getting things back in order to have everything labeled and in it's own spot. The rooms and bedrooms are spaced out so everyone can get away if you have a larger group. The master bathroom is spectacular, was very impressed with that. The house is great for kids, a lot of toys for younger children, and a great video game setup for the older ones. A lot of games for adults as well. The house is very dog friendly as well, they have a nice setup of bowls, towels, and other gear for your dogs in the laundry room. Hot tub was nice after a chilly winter walk on the beach. The game room is a converted garage that is heated, so it is still nice in there. A lot of goodies for your use in there too, beach chairs, wagon, beach toys, etc. Overall everyone had a great time, and I would highly recommend this house to anyone, and all age groups.|
|Collin M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Absolutly wowed by the home!>|
|We went for the beach and the super cute beach community but was blown away by how amazing the house was...we almost never left due to all of the fun available at the house (N64, pool table, movies, hot tub, short walk to the beach, board games!) We couldnt have asked for a nicer stay.|

Incredible attention to detail! This beach house was by far the most well stocked and organized place we have ever stayed.
We will definitely be back!!

|The house was beautiful. Lots of attention to detail throughout the home. It’s a short drive to town and walk to the beach although you never really even need to leave the house! Tons of fun! Thank you!|
|Joshua (review from Airbnb)|
|Our family really enjoyed our stay at this home. We really appreciated the upscale appliances in the high end kitchen. If you need a utensil, even an oyster knife, it is bound to be found in one of the drawers. Everything in the home is well organized and instructions are easy to follow. The kids loved the game room. Pool was extremely popular. Also, the number of board games available to play was great. Thanks for letting us stay in the wonderful home.|
|Jennifer Q. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great Reunion House>|
|Wonderful kitchen, privacy, lots of games and movies. This house has everything you need for a relaxing weekend.|
|Michael (review from Airbnb)|
|This was our second year in the house, and it was as comfortable as we remembered from before. There are tons of amenities to make the stay luxurious -- this time we discovered the waffle iron and the large spherical ice cubes. It was the perfect hangout for a week inside while it stormed, or visiting the beach when the rain stopped. The kitchen is fantastic as ever, and the internet and TV connections made it fun for seeing movies and just hanging out with the family. Toby is very quick to respond to any questions, and we once again left wishing that we could have had more time here.|
|DerekandDanielle T. (review from Vrbo)|
|Perfect getaway for our family>|
|Clean, well equipped home. Our kids each brought a friend, so girls had the lift, boys had the basement and the adults took the main floor bedroom. Room full of games and the hot tub kept us busy at the house, big screen tv made the college championship basketball game all the more enjoyable to catch on our trip.|
|Andy T. (review from Vrbo)|
|Exceeded our expectations>|
|This property is amazing! It was everything it was advertised to be and much more. Every amenity was well thought out. The quality of furnishings is high end, the kitchen is better stocked than my own home. The location is private, close to the beach and convenient to town. We were very impressed with this rental. My family and myself had an outstanding time in this wonderful home. Toby was a pleasure to deal with. We will be coming back!|
|Mark W. (review from Vrbo)|
We chose this house to spend out 20th Anniversary Weekend at because of the location, price and the fact that they allowed dogs. It was a little tricky to locate in the dark, but we were very pleased upon our arrival.
The house has MANY amenities, including towels, toys and food/water bowls for our dog. We absolutely LOVED the kitchen and all the different kitchen gadgets available. The organization and labeling of everything in the house was beyond anything we've seen in other rentals homes.
The hot tub and propane fire pit made for a nice area to relax at night. The beach was a short walk and our pup loved running on the beach and playing in the ocean. We even met the owner, who was working at the lot next door, on our way to the beach.
We will definitely consider this house again should we visit this area again! Thank you Toby!
|Kassandra F. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great family vacation!>|
This home is wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing it and providing such a great family environment.
One note: stairs are metal and not good for small kids and small dogs, but we worked it out by blocking them off, but kids could not use the upper bedroom due to the stairs. :-( but living room was fine for them to sleep. Also, beach is quite a walk, not as close as expected but still great! Love the idea of dog towels too! Thanks!
|Crystal H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Fantastic house with all the cooking items anyone would need.>|
|We had a great time. Bed was comfortable. Nice relaxing hot tub (didnt get to use as much as we wanted due to weather). So many kitchen gadgets to use. House was very clean and organized. The walk to the beach is nice and not many people on the beach in this area. Overall good mini vacation!|
|Nathan (review from Airbnb)|
|This is the best spot to stay in Longbeach. Awesome amenities and great service! You will not be dissatisfied. I am already trying to plan my next stay. Great place to spend time with your family|
|Charles A. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great place. Everything we needed for cooking and spending time at the Ocean was available.>|
|We had an excellent time and the outdoor hot tub/has fire pit was fantastic. Plenty of room for relaxing and lots of movies for those rainy days. Definitely would recommend this to a friend!!!|
|Tony R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Everything we hoped it would be and more!>|
We were looking for a last minute getaway for my wife's birthday and this place was absolutely perfect! We had two other couples with us and our 9 yr old Great Dane.
The location was ideal, a private wooded area surrounds the home, but a quick walk down the driveway, to a dirt road, then a short path through the dunes to the beach, which was easy enough for everyone in our party. The wagon provided made it easy to bring along beach accessories. The beach was beautiful and there were very few other people.
In the evenings the hot tub and fire pit were awesome! No campfire smell with the propane fire! The game room was epic, with everything you could ever need.
The inside of the home was decorated beautifully but simply and everything was in it's proper place, because someone's obsession with a label-maker has finally been realized here :) We loved how everything was clearly labeled and organized throughout the home. This made it really easy for us to be sure to put everything back where it belonged before we left.
There were enough beds and bathrooms for everyone, but since both showers are within the bedrooms, it was a little awkward when the couple without the shower needed to use those facilities, but we worked it out just fine. The bathroom in the main floor master bedroom is unbelievable with the heated tile floor, towel warmer and ultra-deep jetted tub. My wife had the "best bath of her entire life" in that tub.
I think overall, the only thing that we thought was lacking was cupboard space for the food that we had brought. The kitchen was outstanding, with LOTS of room and every utensil and small appliance you could ever need, but there was so much of it that there weren't ANY empty spots for our food. But again, not a huge deal, we were only there for a couple days, so our food sat out on the countertop. If we go back for a longer stay though, we will bring some bins. We did lots of cooking on the huge gas stove with a cast iron griddle...loved that for sure.
When we first arrived there were a few lights out and we made a call to the owner and someone came to the house within 10 minutes and replaced all the bulbs and was very accommodating. We were told to please call if we needed anything at all and they'd take care of it right away.
We will absolutely stay here again, for longer next time. Thank you so much for all the care and effort that you've put into this home, it was so enjoyable.

|We stayed at Toby's place and loved it. It's very comfy and has all the extras you could ask for especially the dream kitchen which is totally gourmet and includes everything you need. There's even a kitchenaid mixer available to use. We loved it so much we never ate out and ended up cooking wonderful meals every night. The beach is a nice ten minute walk down a private path. There was some construction going on behind us, new cabins being built, but there is a tall fence and the noise was minimal, plus they stop at 5. Overall this is a great place and definitely near the top of our list when we return to long beach.|

|Heidi V. (review from Vrbo)|
|We rented this beach house for a family vacation to celebrate my Mom's 70th birthday. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place/setting. There was enough room for everyone and with all the games and activities at the house we never did hear "We're bored" from the kids!!! The kitchen/dining area was perfect for our birthday party and comfortably accommodated all of us. All the ladies in our group joked that we want whomever came in and organized everything to come to our houses and do the same! Highly recommend...you will not be disappointed!!|
|Wade W. (review from Vrbo)|
|We very much enjoyed our stay at this house. It is very well equipped with everything a family would need to enjoy their time here. The modern facilities made it very comfortable and enjoyable. A short drive to town and a short walk to the beach made it very convenient to do the things we wanted to do. The new construction was a mild distraction to the view but the private location made the atmosphere very relaxing. The game room is awesome and the late evening hot tubbing was delightful. Thank you for helping make our 40th anniversary very special.|

|Was a great place to hang out with the family!|
|Doug (review from Airbnb)|
We rented this place primarily for the 1.2 wooded acres as in the listing, but when we arrived, found that the owner was developing the woods into another 5 houses. It made our stay a bit miserable since we had construction noise and people talking right outside the main areas of the house. We mentioned to the owner, upon which he apparently decided to move up his plans to build a fence. Therefore, we had more noise and activity right along the hot tub / fire pit. We didn't feel comfortable going out on the deck and definitely not using the outdoor facilities. We could tell that the owner tried to ensure this house was well stocked. There are a lot of games, but our family was afraid of putting them in the wrong places, so we only took one out to play. Everyone was afraid of getting charged extra dollars for putting something in the wrong place! The owner has labels for everything, even something like a step ladder. It made the members in our family who have anxiety feel a lot more anxious. The kitchen definitely had a lot of items, but with all the cupboards already full, there was then no room for our food!! We had to leave our food out on the counters, which then made the kitchen hard to use. The layout of this house was also a bit tough for our family. The only bedroom with privacy is the master bedroom, as it's the only room with a door! When we opened the bedroom window, though, you hear road noise. Throughout the entire house, from every room, you pretty-much hear everything. No one felt rested during our stay for this reason. The upstairs bedroom doesn't even have a door - it's just a small room at the top of a spiral staircase. It's also right outside the master bedroom door, so it feels like these two areas are actually in the same room. From the master bedroom, you could hear every single noise made from the bedroom above. The master area has a private bathroom, but the only other bathroom with a tub/shower is at the top of the spiral staircase. We planned on kids sleeping in the hide-a-bed couches downstairs, but they didn't have any bath/shower to use unless they walked through the kitchen, into the den/walkway area, and up the spiral stairs right into the upstairs bedroom. The only other option was to walk outside to use an outdoor shower by the hot tub, which was our plan - however, now that the woods are gone, this is not private. The stairs throughout the house are all metal, so they make a lot of noise whenever anyone used them - no matter how quietly they tried to walk. As mentioned, the layout was difficult for our family with our adult children. Overall, we think this would be a good rental for a couple with only 1-2 children max. If there are...
The house and this guest was not a good match. After five years of 99% good reviews I stand by this place. It is always a good idea to read the description and look at the pictures before booking. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I’m not interested in disputing everything she said point by point but suffice to say that it is full of exaggerations and inaccuracies.
|Jenifer (review from Airbnb)|
|Our family sure enjoyed this home, we would definitely recommend this home to our friends and family. No complaints!|
|Brett (review from Airbnb)|
Theis house is perfect for a trip to the beach. Toby has thought of everything you would ever need and the house itself is beautiful! we had a blast staying there and it's an easy private walk to the beach. Definitely coming back here again
|Sidney (review from Airbnb)|
|Beautiful home. Provided everything as promised and then some. Perfect distance from everything you could want. I Highly recommend this home.|
|Mitchell M. (review from Vrbo)|
|This house was absolutely perfect>|
|Couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. Walking distance to the beach. Tons of board games that we played all weekend long and the game room downstairs was amazing. Thanks again and looking forward to coming back to Long Beach soon and hopefully enjoying the same house.|
|Miro M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Nice and clean. Perfect getaway>|
|This was our first time to Long Beach, WA and we ended up being very happy with our experience. The area is beautiful, lots of things to do. The house exceeds all expectations. It was nice, clean well organized and stacked with absolutely anything you might need. Thank you! Some unforgettable memories have been made.|
|Tana W. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great house but construction right next door>|
Toby is very fast to respond to any questions that come up. We were also able to check in a few hours early which was so nice!
The house was very clean and neat. We were very pleased with it. Beds are comfortable. Everything is labeled. This is great but if you have small kids it will drive you crazy. You’ll constantly be worried they’re not going to put something back right and your deposit will be reduced. There’s warnings about this. So our kids didn’t play much with the toys. It’d be better for older kids. Also has a metal spiral staircase up to the second bedroom. If you have kids under 4 this might be hard to manage.
Our kids loved the game garage! It rained a lot so we spent time in there. We loved the coffee makers all over. It was great. There’s even one in the master bathroom! Lots of great little touches like this are found throughout. Also, a towel warmer and heated master bathroom floor.
The fire pit is so awesome! It’s propane and really easy to start. One night it didnt rain and we sat out and made s’mores. There’s roasting sticks in the garage so everything’s there for you!
The walk to the beach takes about 10 minutes. It’s easy and detailed directions are given.
It was so nice to be able to bring our dog. Just know the property isn’t fenced.
The hot tub was very dirty when we arrived. We spoke with Toby about it. This was a bummer because it’s something the kids were excited about. Also there’s construction going on directly next door. We were treated to chainsaw noise and a backhoe winching down trees. Didn’t really scream relaxing beach retreat when they were working. Luckily this wasn’t the entire time.
Overall we enjoyed our stay.
|Taylor W. (review from Vrbo)|
|It was amazin>|
|House had everything very cozy have to stay more days then three next time the days flew!|
|Nadine (review from Airbnb)|
Our family loved staying here. The beach was just an easy 10 minute walk from the house. It rained a lot during our stay like it was predicted to- so we didn’t spend too much time on the beach. Luckily the house was full of stuff to do- our family spent a lot of time playing board games. There was even a box of “dinner game” ideas that we used each evening at dinner that the kids loved. We also spent a lot of time playing pool and ping pong, and in the hot tub!
I also have to comment on how wonderful the shower was in the master bathroom- amazing! And the kitchen was beautiful and big and stocked well with kitchen appliances. We loved our stay here!
|Aron Y. (review from Vrbo)|
|Very comfortable and clean>|
|Comfortable and clean with all the amenities you might need for a great vacation. The house feels bigger than a 2 bedroom and easily sleeps 6 with two foldout couches in the downstairs family room. Game room and hot tub were big hits with the family.|
|Tara L. (review from Vrbo)|
|We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home!>|
|This home had everything our family of seven needed. We especially loved the pool table, ping pong table and foosball table in the garage!|
|Parker M. (review from Vrbo)|

|Anonymous (review from Vrbo)|
|Clean, well stocked, cozy>|
|We had a great, relaxing week nd. Took full advantage of the hot tub, closeness to the beach, and all the cost places to read books. A slight drawback is the the next plot over is currently a construction sight, so not th best view. We were fortunate that no work was being done, so still felt private and there wasn’t any noise. The house was great and well stocked. Easy walk to the beach, and close to Long Beach and Oysterville. Definitely worth staying here.|
|Ron (review from Airbnb)|
|This place was great! Toby was very quick with his responses, the place has everything you need and then some, it's proximity to the beach combined with it's privacy can't be beat!|
|Wesley (review from Airbnb)|
This beach house is amazing. It is easily the cleanest and most organized place we've ever stayed at through airbnb, along side all modern appliances, ammeneties and luxeries you can imagine. Everything is labled in such a way that things are easily returned to their appropriate places. Worth every cent. Toby is quick to respond to any questions and is a gracious host. The kitchen alone made our trip and the hot tub is serviced weekly to ensure satisfaction!
Thank you Toby!
|Jennifer Q. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great for a large group.>|
|Had a great girls weekend! Wonderful, fully outfitted kitchen , nice outdoor areas, close to the beach.|
|Michael (review from Airbnb)|
The house was a super comfy place to hang out for a winter weekend. Although the weather didn't encourage us outside to use the hot tub or the bikes, the indoors was plenty cozy enough for us.
The house has the most amenities of any place I've stayed in an airbnb -- an amazingly stocked kitchen with great appliances, lots of extra towels and blankets, endless puzzles and board games, a very functional office area, a TV on every floor, dozens of DVDs, Nintendo games, a whole room with ping pong, billiards, foosball etc. When the weather cooperated, we walked the road out to the lovely expanse of beach. (You can't see the ocean from the place, but it's an easy walk.) We really could have happily stayed here an extra week without getting bored.
Checkin was simple, the neighborhood was quiet. On the one or two occasions we communicated with Toby during our stay, he was very prompt and helpful.
|Cindy S. (review from Vrbo)|

|Great Christmas near the coast>|
Came down from Seattle to get away with the wife, two dogs, and two friends, and we couldn't picked a better place to stay! The garage was a highlight, the fireplace was wonderful and even though it rained most of the time, we made a great Christmas dinner and had a blast. Would recommend this place in a heartbeat!
|Becky (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby's place was fantastic!! He has thought of everything! His communication was fabulous! You could tell he wants to make sure his guests have everything they need to have a great time!! Beautiful house in a beautiful location!! What a gem!!!|
|Cole (review from Airbnb)|
|We loved using the clam guns and beach gear! The home was very cozy, it was wonderful to utilize the big kitchen and everything was so well organized. We look forward to come back again someday.|
|Julie (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby is a thoughtful and thorough host. All the labels, instructions, variety and placement of items were very helpful and truly exceeded our expectations (ice cream maker, multiple dog bowl dish options with mats and beds, 20 different kinds of glasses, kitchen tools galore, beach kits, etc). We really enjoyed our stay. Our 2.5yo son was smiling from ear to ear the entire time. He especially enjoyed the wall of toys, his first campfire, and family game time in the garage. My husband and I really enjoyed the privacy (a neighbor house can be seen through the trees ~30' away), organization, and the gorgeous walks to the beach as well as the big kitchen and outdoor/garage entertainment setup. The location is wonderful in that it's only 3 miles from town. There's a grocery store less than 5 miles away which was very convenient to take advantage of the fully loaded kitchen. The town is super cute and while you're technically in a beach house, it feels like you're up in the mountains, the best of both worlds:)|
|Rebecca M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Gorgeous, amazing but felt like home!>|
|We stayed while getting married in Long Beach. I can't say enough good things about this property! It was a short walk from the beach. The outside property was beautiful. Inside....WOW! The kitchen was incredible. All the entertainment provided was wonderful..from the video games to board games to the game room...the kids were busy and having fun. The master suite rivaled a luxury hotel. This house was such a blessing for our family on our very special weekend. We would recommend this rental highly. Thank you so much!|
|Jacob (review from Airbnb)|
|Amazing place! The master bed is heavenly, heated towel rack, heated tile floors, beach 5 minute walk, and the game room is off the charts! The property was secluded enough for 3 dogs to run around and not worry about neighbors. You'd be silly to pass this up if you're even considering it.|
|Carla R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Long Beach getway>|
The house while overall nicely done. It needs more comfortable seating on the main floor. The Bed however was Grand! as well as the bathroom well done.
I would not recommend this property to anyone that has issues with stairs. The TV room is in the basement and in order to accommodate the stair issues had to walk around the house to get to that room. Overall the house was good and quite. It was however closer to the main road that I would have liked so needed to watch the dogs very closely. The walk to the beach was about 10 min.
|Ashley R. (review from Vrbo)|
|This is the most beautifully appointed beach house we have ever stayed in. Toby has taken great lengths to make sure every detail is there, with many extras included. We especially enjoyed being able to bring our dogs with us, one of them cannot walk easily and we used the beach cart provided to get Quincy to the beach! I would highly recommend this house to families, couples, ladies weekenders... Just such a pleasure ! A++|
|Jeff W. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great vacation home, would stay there again!>|
|This place is very accomodating and has everything you need to enjoy your time. From the hot tub and fire pit to the games and activities for the kids this place will keep everyone entertained. The waves in the ocean are a little strong so supervise young kids to be safe. Miles of beach that you feel you have all to yourself. Love that cool ocean breeze on morning beach walks. Have fun!|
|Watts (review from Airbnb)|
|A wonderful gathering space for friends and family on a vacation.|
|Laurie W. (review from Vrbo)|
The place is awesome with all the amenities a person could use, maybe not in a week but they are there especially in the kitchen. It was clean and ready to go on arrival with no concerns. Games galore from board games, Play Station, Nintendo, ping pong, fos ball, and pool. The one thing we did not find was a deck of cards and maybe we just didn't locate them because everything else was there. Access to the beach was easy with all the beach items you would need along with the wagon to haul them. Highlights for us was heated tile floor in the master bath, the hot tub, and gas fire pit, although the mosquito's were a little unruly at times nothing a little bug spray helped keep them away. Highly recommend this house for any time of the year, being close to town with lots to do and see there & just a short walk to the beach you can't go wrong. There were 5 of us and everyone enjoyed our stay and will go back. THANK YOU for letting us stay in your house it is beautiful.

|Very well organized, fun, and private.>|
|We had a wonderful time staying at this home. In between trips to the beach and visiting the surrounding area, we also enjoyed the many games, kitchen for some yummy fresh fish. Coffee maker was fast and ready the moment you awake. The hot tub was relaxing after long hikes. My kids went through games like a smorgasbord. Almost everything you will need to fill days with fun you will find here. Thanks so much for letting our family stay in this wonderful home.|
|Meir (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby's homes are always well equipped for the food-loving chef. The kitchens are outstanding. And the movie collections and game collections are to die for. Whether you are stuck inside because it is raining or the sun is calling your name for a walk on the beach, you will not be dissappointed.|
|Nichole (review from Airbnb)|
This was such an amazing vacation stop, thank you Toby for sharing this beautiful home with us. Everything was labeled so clearly and directions were laid out for anything we might need! It is so dog friendly which is a huge factor for us. Our pups especially enjoyed the heated tile floor after awesome long runs on the very secluded part of the beach. We can not wait
To visit this amazing spot again!!
Only small downfall is the amount of mosquitoes.
|Jaimee D. (review from Vrbo)|
|Extremely organized and comfortable home - they've thought of everything!>|
|This home was clean, comfortable, nicely decorated and very organized. I have to admit we giggled a bit about everything having a labeled spot, but I had previously stayed in a beach house where the kitchen cabinets were shoved full of a weird mish-mash of disorganized items, too much of some things and nothing of another, so that was pretty annoying. Labeling keeps things nicer for the guest and obviously helps them keep track of items to ensure a pleasant stay for future guests, so anyway, I appreciated that. The kids of the two families (11, 9 and 3 yo) loved all of the games and toys. It definitely helped to keep them busy so the adults could enjoy some conversation. The beach is a bit of a walk, but it's a nice walk. They have a huge wagon with big tires we took to carry beach toys, water, etc. and the 3 yo rode back in it since he was worn out. The hot tub was lovely, but would recommend some citronella candles for the mosquitos. They weren't terrible - just something to be prepared for. I definitely don't think they should be filling wetlands as others have suggested! We also really liked the privacy this property offered. On one side there are some close homes, but other than that it is very private - vegetated and quiet. We enjoyed seeing the deer as we drove in down the driveway. We would definitely stay here again!|
|Emily (review from Airbnb)|
|We had a lovely stay at Toby's place. It was very clean and organized. There was every amenity you could ask for. The hot tub and fire pit were lots of fun....just bring your bug spray!|

|This beach home is absolutely amazing! Just breathtaking when you first walk in. Beautiful dream kitchen and dining room area. Tons of board games and a wonderful game room. Our girls had such a wonderful time that it was hard to get them to leave! The Hot Tub and propane fire pit was a plus! Also this home is very privately located Surrounded by beautiful evergreens and a 5 min walk to the ocean. We had a wonderful time here and made a lot of wonderful memories with our kids! I would highly recommend this home! Thank you Toby and Family for sharing your beautiful beach home with us!|
|Michael T. (review from Vrbo)|
|Our family had an incredible time staying here! The property is loaded with everything you can imagine to keep you busy rain or shine. It was just what we needed! Would recommend to anyone looking to get away for an amazing weekend!|

|Idyllic Family Holiday!>|
My family and I shared the 2016 Thanksgiving Holiday at this wonderful property. It felt like the house was specifically designed to bring families together with it's large, welcoming dining room open to the beautiful, every appliance you could want, kitchen and the cozy family room with large media sharing that we camped around after dark.
The newly created game room was a fantastic surprise that brought forth our family competitiveness with friendly competitions in billiards, Ping-Pong, and foosball. A 5 minute walk from an endless stretch of beach; perfect for flying kites, hunting for clams, or just frolicking in the waves.
I could not have found a better property for an idyllic family holiday. I cannot remember a holiday or situation that we came together and enjoyed each other so much!
Thank you Toby for the wonderful home, speedy communication, and perfect holiday!

|Impressive, how they thought of everything>|
|The grandparents met our only son, his wife and our only grandchild for a stay. It is amazing to me that this house would have something for all the age groups. We totally enjoyed the home and each other. We were having such a great time we requested an extra day and wished we had ask for 2.|

|Our family enjoyed all the amenities your beach house had to offer.>|
|Our 10-year old son loved all the gaming options available. The easy access to the beach made our vacation complete. GREAT SETUP!!|
|Melinda S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Very well stocked home>|
|This home is very well organized and well stocked, but we didn't expect two sets of stairs going off the main floor. And with our 10 month old it would've been nice to know ahead of time so we could bring a baby gate... You'll actually need something different for the second set like the heavy log chairs from the dining room. I would say it's more geared to older kids and adults, but we were pleased to find a folding high chair in the closet and some plastic baby dishes as well. There is only one bedroom with a door so if you were there with others you might like to be warned about that... Overall we enjoyed our stay... There are many amenities including, crayons, markers, coloring books, books, games, puzzles, Wii, Nintendo64, Play Station(or Xbox I'm not sure), many movies (almost all for older children or adults), nice, easy walk to the beach, outdoor hot tub and shower, BBQ grill, fire pit(both real and propane), games in the garage, propane fireplace in the basement, and an especially nice master bath. We would've rated it a five star except for the inconvenience of the stairs with our baby and that there isn't any comfortable chairs on the main floor... The living room/family room is in the basement.|
|Kyle K. (review from Vrbo)|
|Just as expected!>|
Had a great relaxing weekend! Even though it was raining most of the time during our stay there was plenty to keep us busy inside, the house was fully equipped! Outdoor shower and hot tub were great!
Will be back!

|Well appointed, thoughtfully arranged, lots to do. Great secluded location still close to town with easy beach access. Will be back!|
|Jana (review from Airbnb)|
|Thank you Toby for an amazing place for my family to stay on vacation. The location was amazing! Photos were beautiful but still couldn't beat the real look of the house. I loved how private the house was, but also loved that it was only a 7 minute walk to the beach. Long Beach was beautiful and I loved that it's close enough to drive to Astoria Oregon. I wanted to explore everything! But the house was just so great that we spent a lot of time there. My two boys enjoyed the board games, movies, hot tub, ping pong, pool table and much more. Make sure you go to cape disappointment. The weather was so cold but worth every moment. You will not regret staying in Toby's house in Long Beach. Thank you Toby for this great vacation my family was able to attend. A moment we will never forget.|
|Chad C. (review from Vrbo)|
Clean comfortable stay! It was perfect weather while we were there, so we spent a lot of time outside. I almost wish it would have been crappy out so that we could take better advantage of all the games, video games, movies, and game room.
I had to go buy many different specific types of beers to make sure I was putting in the right style of glasses provided!
Everything was great and if I'm ever in this area again, I will be staying here. All the other reviews nail it.
|danielle l. (review from Vrbo)|
We love to cook and this kitchen has it all!
We can't wait to return in the nicer months and play outside and downstairs more!!!

|You will not want to go home.>|
Whatever you are looking for - this place has it: From high-end amenities like heated tile floors and a Keurig in the master bath, a seventy-inch tv in the family room and a chef's dream kitchen with every accoutrement you could want and some you didn't know you wanted (I've never seen a waffle bowl maker before); to the basic necessities like beach towels, beach chairs, and a wagon for the wood you'll take down to the beach for the sunset fire.
This place is the home you wish you had, and the owner is as organized as you wish you were. And he's thought of everything you might want or need for a relaxing vacation at the beach with your family. Games and puzzles are labeled and arranged by category (and there are two walls full of them), every drawer and shelf in the well-appointed kitchen is organized intelligently and labeled precisely so you can easily find what you need and return items to the proper location. Even the laundry detergent scoop, thoughtfully hung inside the cabinet door, is labeled.
A home manual provides instructions for use of technical equipment and details features of each room in the house. No stressing out over how to get anything to work, or not being able to find what you need. I don't know how much more relaxing and fun the owner could make this place. This place is great, although oversized, for a couple and an absolutely perfect for a family with kids. If you have kids, you'll be a hero for booking this place. No doubt about it. With a pool table, ping pong, beach toys, Wii w/ 30 games w/4 controllers, old school Nintendo 64, hot tub, outdoor shower, fire pit - how can you go wrong? You can't.

|Amazing house, lots of entertainment>|
|We only stayed for a couple of nights, but wished we had a week or more. The kitchen is especially nice, as well as the master bath. The amount and variety of games and other entertainment is really impressive. The location couldn't be better, just a short walk to the beach through beautiful grassland, and the property itself feels private and safe. I definitely would recommend this place.|

|The setting for this home is outstanding. The kitchen is awesome. We were unfortunately only able to stay two nights December 27-29, 2016, and were not able to enjoy all of this home's amenities or go clamming because of the "Red Tide". But we had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the Beach. My grand daughters enjoyed the unbelievable assortment of games and the 70" TV as well. Both Toby and Amanda were friendly and accommodating. We would definitely recommend.|

Plus all the extras - kitchen gadgets galore, fun stemware, hot tub, game room, 100's of games and DVD's. And all within short walking distance to the beach. Check it out - you'll love it!|

|Awesome Beach House!>|
We really enjoyed our stay here! We had two couples staying and it was perfect for us. Plenty of room for families and friends also. Very private setting with just a nice short walk to the beach. Very nice modern kitchen with everything you could possibly need for cooking. House is well appointed and very organized. Master bath is huge. Very, very nice! The house has everything you will need for a great relaxing vacation. The hot tub area outside with a shower is awesome! Very relaxing home and property to spend time at. Bikes for kids and adults were also supplied for riding the Discovery Trail. We would highly recommend this property for both couples and families. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to the area.

|Everything you could need and more!>|
|We had a wonderful time visiting your home. It is very well-appointed with everything you could possibly need for a great beach vacation. Our daughter loved the hot tub and fire pit. The kitchen and master bathroom are beautiful. I also love the fact you can drive around the house making it easier to load and unload items wherever you need. The outdoor shower is also great feature. The trip was a nice escape from the heat of metro Atlanta and we hope to visit again next year. Thank you Toby for providing such an awesome place to visit!|
|Heather S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Can't wait to go back!>|
|Our family absolutely loved staying at this house and hope to book again in the future! There is so much privacy with the natural foliage on the property and being just north of "downtown" our location on the beach was also exceptionally quiet. The high-end kitchen was so well-equipped that we challenged ourselves to think of anything that was missing....(maybe a tomato corer? not that we've ever even used one). Entertainment amenities were geared for all ages with extensive DVD, board game, video game, and book collections. Even my toddler was delighted to discover baskets full of legos, train tracks, and blocks. Everything was also available for spending days on the beach or evenings by the firepit. What a great experience and wonderful memories!|

|Our family had a wonderful time at the beach. Toby's home is so well organized and thoughtfully supplied with anything a family might need. The kitchen was amazing to cook in, and family dining around the large dining table was perfect! We found the game selection excellent for our teenager and the toys perfect for our toddler. The walk to the beach was short and the wagon was perfect for the toddler. The outdoor shower was such a smart addition. We could easily clean off from our beach excursions and avoid tracking sand into the house. We couldn't come close to taking advantage of everything this wonderful beach home has to offer. We would definitely recommend this home !|

|This was my first airbnb and it was a fantastic experience! The communication was easy and seamless. The home was gorgeous, luxurious, and beautifully appointed. Between the ping-pong table, hot tub (with outdoor shower) , hundreds of games, tvs, fireplaces, and easy beach access...we were continually entertained! It was a wonderful, lazy week enjoyed by the whole family. My 4 year old granddaughter wants to buy this house and live here full time!|

|Awesome vacation home>|
|We absolutely loved staying here during our anniversary getaway. The home is beautiful and extremely well appointed--Toby has thought of absolutely everything, and there were more things available to us than we could take advantage of during our short stay. We would definitely recommend staying here and we will do so again during our next Long Beach vacation!|

|Beautiful spot the is very relaxing>|
The house is a great place for a relaxing getaway. We came as a group of two couples and two children and found it very spacious and organized. The beach is only a short pretty walk away. We all had a great time exploring the town and the towns close by. We hope that we can make this trip happen again soon!
|Ashley (review from Airbnb)|
The pictures do not do this property justice. It was nicer than I had imagined or could have imagined.
We came in on the main level of the house, level 2. Immediately to the left was a laundry room with a modern washer and dryer. There was a sink, which I love in laundry rooms, and in the cabinet below is where you find dog towels and indoor and outdoor food and water bowls. To the right there is a closer with necessities to clean, vacuum cleaner and a few brooms, dust pans. Further down the hall there is an updated bathroom. The house then opens to a huge kitchen to the left and a dining room to the right. The kitchen was done meticulously well with attention to detail that made it a joy to prepare food in. There are 2 sinks and windows that make the room feel nice and airy. The dining room table was incredibly beautiful. Made with logs, so sturdy, durable, but simple and really stunning. There are two sliders (one off the dining room and one off the study) that open to a huge deck on the 2nd floor of the house.
You pass the dining room and walk into the study where you will find what must be a hundred games that are labeled so they are a snap to organize and put away. We had 2 8 year-old girls with us and the labeling system was easy for them to use.
The master is off the study. I believe the bed was made from the same wood as the dining room table. It is high off the ground which is a great way to keep dogs from possible jumping up. The topper on the mattress was so comfortable and now I am in search for one similar for our bed at home. There is a fun fireplace module on the wall that was soothing and helped relax before going to bed. The bathroom is what you would find at an higher-end hotel. There is a plunge tub with jets and the shower is all glass and perfectly simple which adds to the beauty. The floors are heated which is a fun bonus and the towel warmer made me realize I really have been missing out for 38 years of my life!
The upstairs room is beautiful with some built/ins and 2 really cute random windows that were charming and unexpected, I love things like that. Perfect for children. Older children, as there is a windy staircase up to that room.
The stairs that lead to the downstairs entertainment room had grates on them probably to help with cleaning. The fireplace downstairs was lovely and the couches were cozy and comfy.
The hot tub and outdoor shower speak for themselves. They are perfect!

|Lovely home >|
|The home was beautiful, spacious, very organized and had everything you could ever need for a relaxing getaway. The beach is only a short walk on a scenic path away from the property. You can actually hear the ocean from the deck. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Can't wait to go back.|
|Wendi R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Relaxing and private!>|
|My husband and I stayed in this lovely home over Memorial weekend. The house is lovely! Beautifully furnished and stocked with any appliance or gadget you could possibly need! There are lots of movies,games and books to occupy your time if the weather should keep you from going to the beach. The beach is a short and easy hike away. We loved it! Our dog loved it!|
|Gwen V. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful, private home with everything you need for a girls' weekend!>|
I stayed at this wonderful home with three other girlfriends. We had never taken a weekend away together after 30 years of friendship and it was perfect! It is really, really close to the beach but you don't look at any other homes so it feels private. The house had EVERYTHING. We like to eat healthy and this kitchen was stocked with all the utensils plus there was a great selection of DVDs, games, etc. I think we were most impressed by the kitchen and the luxurious master bathroom. We have said we would go back to this exact same house again because we loved it so much. Thanks for letting us stay in your fantastic home!
|Kristi (review from Airbnb)|
|Our experience in Long Beach was beyond delightful due to our stay at this particular location. We had everything we could have possibly needed and then some! We could clearly see the time and effort that our host put into making this airbnb comfortable, relaxing and fun. Whether you plan to relax in the hot tub, watch endless movies in the den, take a nap in some of the most comfortable beds, spending hours in the kitchen whipping up your favorite recipes for family and friends, choosing from over 30 boardgames, walks and bike rides to the beach.... you will not be disappointed! Thank you so much Toby, we look forward to visiting this location again in the near future.|

|Clean and Very Well organized>|
|The property was a fun and well-stocked home. Home owner is generous with all that he offers tenants to enjoy during their stay. Plan extra time to check out. I was a bit stressed to ensure everything was put back in it's place but all the labels made it easy to find.|
|Ashley S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Perfect house, Perfect location!!>|
|My husband and I stayed here with 2 other couples for a fun clamming weekend. Although we only got one clam between the six of us! The home was absolutely beautiful and it's location couldn't be better. It is VERY private and just a nice short walk to the beach. The home was totally dialed in. From the hundreds of movies on DVD, to the games and a fully equipped chefs kitchen. I would have to say my favorite part was the new outdoor shower and hot tub. The shower rocked. Toby the owner was great to work with. Highly recommend this home for a family vacation or a couples get away.|
|Erin A. (review from Vrbo)|
What a lovely home. Everything we needed for teens and adults. It's tucked away in a beautiful secluded spot and is super convenient to the beach. Could not have asked for more from this home.
We loved the ping pong table, bikes, gourmet kitchen, master bath, total solitude of the location, convenient labeling system throughout the house and awesome selection of games and movies!
Know before you go: the path down to the beach from the house had these sticker things that the dogs couldn't handle. Next time I'll bring some booties. This was at the end of August and I imagine it's just a seasonal thing. Just a smidge up the road is vehicle access to the beach, so we just drove them down which was not a big deal.
We're making our summer plans and hope to come back for round two of awesomeness! Oh, and Toby was super responsive and great!
|Erin S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful home in secluded area>|
The pride of ownership shows in this wonderful home in Long Beach. The kitchen is well stocked with good cookware and utensils... not your typical Goodwill variety of some rentals. You can tell that Toby and his family use this home as their own and graciously let others rent to enjoy the private and secluded property. It is clean and upscale. I got spoiled by the heated floor tiles in the master bathroom. The shower was glorious -- it was like being in a 5-star resort/spa.
We had a wet, but wonderful stay. It poured every day while we were there, but we walked out to the beach twice a day with our dog who loved the path to the beach. I think we spent more time on the path to the beach than on the beach itself because of the great "smells" for the dog. She ran up and down the path, through the grasses and huge puddles of water. We brought dog towels, but Toby provided extra dog towels which we certainly needed for our wet weekend. You can travel light when renting Toby's house... he's thought of everything you could possibly need for your stay.
Our exploration of Long Beach included Cape Disappointment and driving up to Leadbetter Point State Park. In Ocean Park, we stopped at a wonderful general store called "Jack's". It is worth the stop to check out the variety of things you can find and buy in one store! Cottages Bakery and Deli have great breakfast sandwiches to go and cheerful staff. Give the Long Beach Coffee Roasters a miss -- non-existent customer service. If you are going to stop at the parks, get a Discovery Park Pass before heading out to explore and hike.
Toby is a hands-on owner and we met him as he was checking on the hot tub as we arrived. He's extremely responsive and a pleasure to do business with. We had a memorable Valentine's weekend and will return again.

|Well equipped, nice vacation home>|
|The owner has prepared a well organized, fun beach house. We enjoyed our stay and the house lived up to and surpassed the descriptions given. The owner obviously wanted us to be happy and we were. Thanks!|

|Holiday beach trip >|
|Great Vacation Spot!!! Awesome House!!! Steps away from the beach yet private and secluded by the beautiful trees! Relaxing and fun atmosphere with tons of amenities that any family would need. Very clean, comfortable and organized. We are a family of 5 with a dog so this was the perfect place for us to get away and spend quality family time and enjoy the outdoors! We definitely recommend this home as a vacation spot year round. It's also spacious enough for any couple, group or family. We would love to come back anytime we are going to Long Beach!|
|William (review from Airbnb)|
|Amazing place everything you need is there tons of games great for kids Toby is an awesome host!|

|Perfect Weekend Getaway>|
|You remember that person in High School who had a 4.2 G.P.A. and you would think to yourself, "How is that even possible"? Well that person is this house. This was the perfect getaway for a romantic weekend for two or enough room for a family. Behind every corner was beautiful detail and I was constantly surprised. You can tell the owner takes pride and joy in this place. It has that home like feel which makes you want to stay forever. It truly is a home away from home. The wood furniture give it that beach vibe and everything is perfectly neat and organized. We really enjoyed the board game wall and the drawers of DVD's! I'm always looking for places to take my dog and I was so thankful they were allowed here. There was a dog bed and even dog bowls which was so nice. Although you'd never be able to tell a dog has ever stayed there before it's so clean. All I can say is I loved this house and you must go see it for yourself! Cheers and thanks again Toby for the hospitality and opening up your home to us!|
|Greg (review from Airbnb)|
|My Brother and I and our two large dogs stayed at "Path to the Beach"last week. Toby made very easy to get in and the home was the most well appointed Air B&B I have used. Everything was labeled and the location was easy to get the proximity to town and the beach was perfect. this house was exceptionally clean. Toby has a garage filled with every imaginable beach toy and bike. I would absolutely recommend this houser to any one who asks. Greg Stehlik|

|The beach in fall>|
|Wonderful place! Don't prevent yourself from going to the beach in late fall or early winter because of the rain, when there is such a great place to stay! Close to the beach, town, restaurants and shops. Spacious, warm, comfortable and offers a "million" indoor activities any family will love!|
|Matt O. (review from Vrbo)|
|Outstanding Home Away From Home!>|
|My wife and I decided to take a short vacation with our 2 dogs and were nothing but pleased with this place! The giant TV downstairs made for a great place to watch some football on a big comfy couch with surround sound! The adjacent gas fireplace was a nice place to put down one of the giant beanbag chairs provided and just put on a movie (of which there is such a large selection you can easily find something you want to watch) and relax. The kitchen is modern and contains everything you need(including most basic kitchen staples) to make everything from a rack of ribs to stir fry in a wok or anything else you could want to make! The board game/video game collection is superb! There were plenty of classics from when we were kids and other new games we played for the first time. The master bed was very comfortable and the master bathroom was amazing! Heated tile floors, multi head showers and a jetted tub are now definitely on my list of things for my next home!. The walk to the beach is very short and the beach is wide open! We only saw one other person out there during the multiple times we went. Our dogs had a great time. The house comes with multiple dogs beds, food bowls, etc. Having over an acre of secluded land for them to run around on was perfect! Lastly, the owner is what really sets this place apart in my opinion. He has provided directions and labels for everything in the house. This was great so we didn't have to spend the first few hours just figuring out how to turn everything on or get it to work. Due to military obligations we were iffy on being able to rent the house or not and Toby was very patient and understanding of our situation and continued to be helpful throughout the entire process and encouraged us to call him if we had any questions or problems with the house throughout our stay. This place was so awesome during late fall, I can only imagine how great it is during the summer! We will definitely be coming back!|

|Functional & comfortable>|
We got married in Oysterville and used this house as home base.
This home has everything you'll need to create a fun filled vacation full of wonderful memories. The kitchen is modern, large and it really does have everything you need to cook gourmet or easy meals. There are 4 bathrooms and the master has a luxurious jet tub, walk in tiled shower and heated floors. The heated floors were amazing! I had no idea that my feet would appreciate being warm and cozy every time I walked in the bathroom. There are hundreds of great movies to choose from and plenty of TVs to view them on. The dining room table is huge and became the center of our gatherings for meals and social time. We walked to the beach several times during our 5 night stay. We even enjoyed the lunar eclipse super moon on the beach while staying warm around a fire. Most days, and evenings, we were the only people on the beach. This house is very private and so is the trail to and from the beach. The garage has a ping pong table and at least a dozen bicycles! The laundry room was a very useful area to unload our stuff and the deck received full sun during the day, which made for some relaxing time in the sun. The wifi and wifi printer are easy to connect to, and the high, large, soft and cozy beds made us feel like royalty. Upon arrival the house was spotless and there were easy directions to help us use the TVs and plenty of space for everyone in our party. My husband commented several times on how impressed he was with me for finding and choosing this house! Yay :-) We had so much fun relaxing that we asked if we could add on another night to our stay. Thank you Toby for a great vacation. We'll be back next year to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary!
|Pratham (review from Airbnb)|
This place is the gold standard for what a vacation home should be. The kitchen has every utensil imaginable; The beds are massive and comfy; The game room has multiple board and video games; The garage has bikes, long boards, beach stuff, footballs.
But best of all, everything is labelled and instructions are made available for mostly all the amenities in the house.
The thing to keep in mind for the privacy conscious is that the master bedroom is the only room with a lock on the door.
This was an awesome experience. One which I look forward to repeating.

|great beach house>|
|This is a great vacation rental. Has everything you need. We loved the big dining room table. Had many great meals and conversations. Our 16 year old grandson loves all the toys and games. Short walk to beach. Great master bath with heated floors. We Wil definitely be back.|
|Barb j. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great quiet beach location>|
|This private house was a great location for our stay at Long Beach. Even though the weather was perfect, it certainly was nice to have all of the games and videos available. With a 16 year old there was plenty to keep him busy. Easy walk to the beach. Loved that everything was labeled with it's location. That made it very easy to put the house back in order when we left. Great kitchen, great master bath! We loved having the big dining table. Had some really great dinners. Will definitely would rent the house again.|
|MikeAndJulia H. (review from Vrbo)|
kitchen was outstanding and all the appliances were better than you'd ever expect. Washrooms and bedrooms were great!
Room upstairs has no door. FYI. but that could be my only con. was stocked with more stuff than you'd expect and had everything to make a perfect vacay.
Toby's communication was also excellant and is instructions were fantastic.
thanks so much Toby for opening up your place.
|Sanjay D. (review from Vrbo)|
|Easily the most well appointed home we have rented in many years of using VRBO all over the US. Our boys really enjoyed the media/basement room and it was nice to have a place they could do their own thing. We like to cook and there is nothing missing from the kitchen in this house. The walk to the beach is wonderfully rustic. In addition, we were blessed with exceptional weat her which made everything a touch more enjoyable. Highly recommended!|
|Shelah A. (review from Vrbo)|
|A perfect escape.>|
|I highly recommend this property. I've stayed at several other places in the area, and this is now my favorite. It is so quiet and peaceful, and I felt completely safe there. It is located close to everything you go to Long Beach for, yet it provides privacy. The walk to the beach is short, easy, and beautiful. The house itself is outfitted for any need that you could think of, with tons of extras that will surprise you. The well stocked kitchen will surpass any need you have. The appliances are all quality, and everything was clean. It is tastefully decorated, and just right for relaxing or entertaining. The circular staircase to the third floor is beautiful. My best advice about enjoying a spectacular feature in this rental? Go shopping before your stay, and indulge in every decadent spa product that you might enjoy. The Master Bath is a private dream spa waiting to happen. There are Margarita glasses in the kitchen, and a lovely ledge by the bathtub to set them on. Bring some salt for the rim (or use the salt provided in the grinder) and book an extra day to devote just to pampering yourself. The hot water is on demand, and never ran out. The owner is attentive and promptly answers questions, etc. I rented this property for a solo vacation, but it would be perfect for families, couples, etc. Five stars for sure, and I will absolutely rent this property again.|
|Kathy (review from Airbnb)|
Wow! What a wonderful house to have a vacation in! Toby has made sure that all of your needs are met, and even some that you didn't know you had!
Toby was very responsive to all e-mails and checked to make sure we were able to get into the house without any problems.
Let's talk about the kitchen! Fabulous! Every piece of equipment that you might need. More than adequate work space for multiple people. Two separate sinks, each with there own garbage disposal, a duel dishwasher that was perfect for getting a small load of dishes done on the day that we left. A baking drawer with everything you would need to make a cake or pie. I could go on and on. It was a dream kitchen. We had many wonderful meals there.
Everything you would need for the beach was there and the walk to the beach was half of the fun (except for the little stickers in the road that drove my little dog's paws crazy,). Even chairs that you could carry like a backpack!
And speaking of dogs, who provides beds and bowls for dogs? TOBY does! Amazing, and thoughtful.
Bedrooms were wonderful. Great baths. Loved the heated floor in the master bath.
If I could wish for one thing, it would be a few easy chairs on the main level, but not quite sure where you would put them. In typical fashion, everyone congregated at the kitchen and it would have been nice to sink in to a comfy chair.
This is a wonderful place. We had a terrific time and would recommend it with absolutely no reservations! Thank you Toby for allowing us to share your wonderful house!
|Anne S. (review from Vrbo)|
This is a fabulous house. So many amenities. The master bedroom and bath are wonderful, with a king size bed, large tub and (separate) shower, heated tile floor and towel rack! The upstairs bedroom is smaller but also very nice, it gives a little bit of privacy being on a floor by itself.
There are so many games and puzzles, hundreds of DVDs, a Wii console, even a Nintendo 64 that our daughters got a big kick out of. Everything is well organized and the games are complete sets and not all mixed up together. The 70" TV has a bluray player and cable, even the MLB extra games package (very popular with my husband).
The kitchen has, among other things, a Kitchenaid mixer, panini grill, two coffee makers (one a Keurig), all the pans and utensils you could ask for. Again, all very well organized.
In general, there are so many little extras (extra dog bowls in the laundry room!), it shows a lot of thought and care went into this house. We will definitely be back!

|Gem for families with young children>|
|We have a 3 yr old and 1yr old, and this house is extremely accommodating. We used the wagon, tricycles, strollers (including a double covered one), sand toys at the nearby beach, and the small table and chairs for meals, plus high chair, small bowls and spoons. Between the local visits to the town, Ilwaco, and the trolley and Saturday market in Astoria, this provided great activities for the week. The only drawback for small kids is that there are two steep staircases that the kids liked to climb, but I think these could be blocked with chairs. I would also add that I think this would be a great place for a getaway without kids, as it is very clean, has tons of high end cooking tools/appliances, books, movies with a huge TV screen in a cozy den, board games, fire pit, Wii, etc. I think it is also well stocked for pets, with bowls, mats, etc.|
|Veronica T. (review from Vrbo)|
The home was lovely and also was very clean and organized ! Top of the line appliances, private beach access, nice deck to relax on, fire pit at night , very private with lots of trees & Great for pets...the only thing is the living room was in the downstairs ! Not good for someone that doesn't like steps...lots of them and steep!
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Just to clarify, the stairs have a very standard rise to run ratio, they are not steep and even have a landing in the middle.

|Gorgeous House Complete with Everything!>|
|This was our first time renting a house in years and it was a great experience. We came to Long Beach for the clamming which unfortunately was forced to close the day we arrived and remained closed all weekend. Luckily, the house was well equipped with everything we needed to keep ourselves busy! Plus, since we were unable to occupy some of our time clamming, it was nice being able to have a gorgeous comfortable place to relax in! The house was very well stocked. The kitchen had everything you could have needed which was great. We loved the extra large dining room table. It was great for meal time as well as game time! The TV downstairs was awesome and there were SO MANY DVDS! There was something for everyone! The short walk to the beach was very nice. The house is nice and private - not neighbors everywhere which was great. The heated floors and towel rack in the master bathroom was a great treat! And I loved the Keurig that was also in the master bathroom - great idea! We will definitely stay here again. Being able to bring our pets was also a huge perk. Thank you for making our stay away from home be so comfortable and relaxing!|
|Michelle M. (review from Vrbo)|
|We absolutely loved our time at this house. It had everything we needed and Toby was wonderful in helping make sure we got what we were looking for. The bouncy house in the garage was an added touch that our toddler loved and the array of bikes was perfect for our son. Kitchen was amazing and it was so nice to have a wooded lot. Top notch for sure!!|
|Julia M. (review from Vrbo)|
|The house was AMAZING!!! My husband and I loved our time here. Everything was so clean and so organized. It had everything we needed.|
|Stephanie R. (review from Vrbo)|
|We went with another family we are close with and had a wonderful time. Our kiddos are a little younger, so I think while the house was absolutely fantastic, I would probably say it is best suited for 5 and older kiddos. Overall, the thought and care put in to this house are awesome. It was truly relaxing and fun. Am already looking forward to another chance to visit!|
|Kerri T. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great place for a family getaway!>|
|Our family had a great time staying at this house near the beach. This updated house was very clean and well organized, especially the kitchen. We loved the large master bath. The heated floors were such a nice treat. The walk to the beach each day was just beautiful. Our dog had a great time playing at the beach and in the yard back at the house. Our teenage kids loved riding bikes around. There were so many to chose from. Thanks for providing a great place for our family to get away and enjoy the beautiful beaches of Long Beach. We hope to come back again some day.|

|Everything you could want and more! Great family vacation. >|
|We were very impressed with this rental home. The space was perfect for our group of 5 adults, a baby, and a toddler. The first night we stayed in and made use of the huge, well-equipped kitchen and grilled some delicious burgers out on the deck. Each night after the kids went to bed we stayed up way too late playing board games. Though it was a little chilly, we took some of the sand toys from the garage and walked to the beach. We didn't make it to the discovery trail this time, but we had lots of laughs riding the three-wheeled unicycle and pogo stick in the driveway. The plethora of toys and games were awesome; as anyone with kids knows, having new and exciting toys to play with on vacation is a must for keeping the little ones entertained so the grown-ups can relax! I read a review about the stairs being tricky for little ones - it wasn't a problem for us, but we did supervise as our toddler went up and down, especially the spiral staircase. Bring some portable baby gates for peace of mind if you're concerned. A weekend was not long enough, next time we'll stay longer for sure.|
|Jon B. (review from Vrbo)|
|We had a blast; great home at reasonable rate.>|
|We absolutely loved this house as it was probably the most kid friendly one we've ever stayed in. However, it was also very modern with all the extra touches that made our week stay very enjoyable. The kids had a great time with all the games, toys, etc. Plenty to do no matter rain or shine; we found a local community swimming pool for those rainy days and the beach was just a short walk away. One night in backyard making smores in the firepit, while playing ping pong in the garage. Excellent family vacation rental; highly recommended.|
|Andrew F. (review from Vrbo)|
|Well-equipped getaway. >|
|I really enjoyed the house for several reasons. The location is great, it's got plenty of space and even if the weather is crummy and you don't want to go outside, the place is stocked with tons of games and movies. And the kitchen is awesome for big family dinners. We caught a bunch of clams and canned them one night. And the garage has a bunch of bikes and clam guns for all kinds of fun.|
|Elizabeth L. (review from Vrbo)|
|Amazing house, Great family vacation! >|
This house had everything you could possibly need for an awesome family vacation! From the moment we walked in to the house we knew we picked the right rental. The kitchen was amazing as was the master bath. There were so many board games that we had so much fun playing a different family game every night, and the kids loved the Nintendo 64! chances are if you forget to pack something you will find it in the house. We could not fit our daughters stroller in the car, but he had one in the garage we were able to use when walking to the beach.
Thank you for sharing your amazing home with us! I will definitely be recommending it to anyone looking for a great place to rent in long beach!
|Ryan (review from Airbnb)|
We stayed here for a long weekend, and wished we had planned to stay longer! The house and property are in immaculate shape. I have never stayed at a rental home with so many quality amenities! Great kitchen, tons of games, movies and toys, and the garage was stocked with tons of stuff for the beach, including a stroller for our daughter and a huge selection of bikes.
Toby is a great host. He reached out several times prior to our stay to answer questions and make sure we were situated. Very accommodating and professional!
|Amanda P. (review from Vrbo)|

|Longview Beach Sanctuary >|
Thank you for a wonderful stay. The home was the best appointed home we have rented (coming from VRBO 'veterans'). No detail was ignored. The home was spectacular and its convenient location, proximity to beach and privacy put it over the top..... Our dog was welcomed with his choice of three large dog beds. As an owner of a small restaurant, I found the kitchen design efficient and : 2 prep areas, 2 sinks. fantastic 6 burner stove and every appliance you would ever use to make gourmet meals (thank you for the spice assortment). The radiant heat bathroom floor and jetted tub/shower was great after a day of beachcombing in chilly fall temps.
Thanks again for a stellar experience. I have recommended this home to several friends!
|Melanie (review from Airbnb)|
|This home was fully stocked with everything we could've asked for! Great kitchen and the garage was loaded with toys for our little ones. The beach was a short walk (or bike ride!) away. I would have to say the layout of the house is ideal for one couple with kids or all adults.|

|Wonderful 4 days~~>|
|Toby was wonderful working with us with all of our requests. The home was great and VERY well stocked from the kitchen to the play room. It was immaculate. Nice walk to the beach. For us, home is not recommended for young children. Grandchildren were 2 and 1 and the two spiral stair cases were a problem for us. It would have been perfect for our other grandchildren: 8-14. We all enjoyed our time and appreciate you, Toby.|

|Wow, what a house! This house has everything. The kitchen is incredible. My wife and I love to cook, and we really enjoyed this aspect of the house. The TV downstairs is huge! If you are looking to stay in Long Beach, rent this house right now before someone else does.|
|Rachel L. (review from Vrbo)|
|this home was beautiful and looked like it had just been remodeled. This was probably the most well stocked home we have ever rented. There was nothing we needed as far as ammenities during our stay. The kitchen was well layed out with everything you can possibly imagine and the garage was full of everything you would need if it were your own home. Our Host was so gracious when making arrangements for our stay. We hope to be able to book it again soon. Thanks so much for all the time that was taken to make is such a wonderful place to stay.|

|This was by far the best vacation rental we have ever stayed at. It was so organized and so well stocked with everything from the kitchen to the games, movies and tons of fun things in the garage. We had such a wonderful time. Our host was so gracious when we were booking it and so helpful in letting us know what to expect when we arrived. They have thought of everything. The house was gorgeous inside and so well layed out so that you could find everything. We so enjoyed our stay and will hopefully booking again soon for next year. Thanks so much|

|I absolutely LOVE coming to this home! This is the perfect oasis at the coast. It has great entertainment for all ages- everything from video games, to puzzles, an endless DVD collection, tons of books and CD's too! Any cooking appliance you could need is in the kitchen, they have thought of everything! The mattress in the master bedroom is like a cloud, the bathroom has heated tiles and a great shower with multiple shower heads. This is a luxurious place to unwind in and so close to the beach! There are tons of bikes and toys for kids to play with in the garage, and some gorgeous antique kids' toys upstairs. Can't wait to come back!|

|I entertained a few customers coming in from Denver who are also good friends and this property suited us all very well. Everything exceeded our expectations in every way. I will be back when entertaining customers and also with my family for vacation.|

|What an amazing trip! This place helped us capture so many precious memories! Our daughter learned how to ride a bike thanks to this place having one in EVERY size! By the end of our stay she road with us on the boardwalk! Kitchen was a dream. We had everything we needed! Our family visiting from Oklahoma can't wait to come back!|
|Bj (review from Airbnb)|
The house was perfect and truly well stocked. Toby has a fantastic kitchen filled with great appliances and a garage with more toys than the kids could find time to play with.
The gate at the end of the driveway gave us piece of mind that the kids and dogs were safe from traffic, put the location was so private we never saw any cars.

|A perfect beach get-away.>|
We had a fantastic time staying at this house. The ad description and pictures really don't it justice. Everything in the house is of the highest quality, from the very comfortable beds and the luxurious master bath, to the fully equipped kitchen with room for 3 cooks to work all at the same time. When we arrived the house was spotlessly clean. The beach is a short walk away, and the house is located close, but not too close to the madness that is Long Beach in the summer.
We had 3 generations of my family represented during our stay and there was ample amusements and entertaining activities for everyone. We were amazed by the extensive movie library and the N64 game selection. You really don't need to bring anything other than your food, clothing, and toothbrush. Read the notebook that has all the house directions. Prepare to be amazed.
|Connie D. (review from Vrbo)|
|We had a great time. This awesome home is just as described. Very peaceful, private location. The path to the beach was an easy walk and the weather was ideal for the beach and outdoor dining on the deck. We will certainly consider staying here again. Thanks, Toby!|
|Christian (review from Airbnb)|
|The interior of this house is amazing, Toby must have redone it 100% very recently, with high-end kitchens and baths, great large dining room table. Great master bath, lots of bikes and beach chairs to choose from in the garage. Everything you need is there. Part of the walk to the beach is gravel in which you need shoes or flip flops, but he provides extra flip flops as well. Once you get to the grassy meadow, the beach walk is very serene. No view to beach though, but honestly did not miss that part, as the beach can get to windy at times.|
|Kevin B. (review from Vrbo)|
|We all had a wonderful time. The house was fantastic. It had everything and any thing you could want. Great location, not far from the beach and down town. I would stay there again.|

|Great house for a relaxing family vacation or getaway. Lots of games to play and movies to watch. Wonderfully appointed kitchen! Nice clean and quiet beach a short walk away.|

|Incredibly organized high-end rental>|
We are an active retired couple who travel extensively with our two huge (90 lb. each) mature (10/9 y.o.) beautiful mixed-breed canines. We were fortunate to spend four warm and dry nights at this beautiful property after viewing the Starlight Parade in Portland. The home is wonderfully equipped with almost every device and goodie that you can think of, and with the added advantage of meticulous labelling of drawers , cupboards, etc. We aren't AV aficionados, but enjoyed revisiting the "Wonder Years" on Netflix on the HUGE screen. The house has an incredible selection of movies, CDs and games. My husband even learned a few new jokes from one of the books, though he knew almost all of the jokes as he read them.
If you have dogs, drive to the beach access within the neighbourhood, as both of our dogs refused to walk the path from there house to the beach because of VERY annoying paw stings caused by some freaky tiny weeds on the path. A neighbour towards the beach advised us his dog refuses to use the trail, so (because the dog is less than 10 lbs.) he carries him to the beach. Anyway, drive to the grassy access!

|This place has it all!>|
|This place was the perfect place to stay for us. The kitchen is stocked fully with every gadget imaginable. It is close to Long Beach so you can easily go into town for fun--if you even want to leave the sweet set-up at the house! Our 4 teens were entertained with board games and movies and we took several walks to the beach. You won't regret staying here! We would love to come back sometime.|
|Anonymous (review from Vrbo)|
|We are so happy we found this house. This will definitely be our go to place when we stay at the beach. The kitchen is amazing. Close walk to the beach and a short distance to town. When not at the beach we found ourselves sitting around the larger dining room table playing games, eating and talking. The owner has really thought of everything. The only advice is maybe making sure to have some insect repellent, the mosquitoes were there in abundance.|

|Cozy and Quiet>|
|We only had time for a quick get-away, and this was the perfect spot. Cozy, quiet, great beach walks, etc, with simple, yet very elegant decor. We will definitely be back to enjoy more! Thanks, Toby, for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home.|

|Fabulous Kitchen and Amenities in Long Beach, WA>|
|Four of us wanted a quick weekend getaway from the city. The home is exactly as it's depicted. There's great technology and media (HUGE DVD collection & Netflix). The 2 bedrooms were very comfortable with outstanding mattresses. There were lots of board games and puzzles and equipment for the outdoors and the beach. The Kitchen was out of this world, a true chef's Kitchen. The Kitchen had everything that we needed and more to cook nice meals. The beach is about a 7-minute walk through a field and not too far from downtown Long Beach.|

|Clam digging get away.>|
|We come to Long Beach a lot to clam dig. This was our first time renting a house. We loved it. The house is beautiful and has everything you need. There was great access to the beach. The weather wasn't the best but we had a great time. Loved the private location.|
|Paul and Alicia F. (review from Vrbo)|
|The property was accurately represented and we would agree with the reviews posted. We appreciated the family and pet friendly amenities and felt right at home. The property is private and secluded but within a short drive of the Long Beach shopping district, boardwalk, and Discovery Trail. The kids loved the movies, games and bikes and it was a wonderful treat to be able to bring the family dog with us. The kitchen is beautiful, well-equipped and made for such an enjoyable cooking experience that we never ate out! We had great weather and spent a lot of time at the beach. The beach is within a short walk of the property. As the previous review stated read the binder first for instructions on beach access. Long Beach is a fun beach town with lots of tourist activities. There are many state parks and recreation areas nearby making it easy to find something that was interesting to all. This is without a doubt a property we would recommend to others and would visit again ourselves!|
|Michael H. (review from Vrbo)|
|We stayed here from 07 Apr 14 - 11 Apr 14. This was our 1st time renting a vacation rental. It was everything I thought it would be. The kids loved it. The wife was happy. The location to the beach is great. READ THE BINDER ABOVE THE PRINTER. It will tell you everything. All you need is your clothes and groceries. The house has everything you need. Will be staying here again. You are at the most 10 min from downtown Long Beach. Stay here. What the listing says is in the house is there. Highly recommend|

|Fun!! Even in the rain!>|
We had such a great time during our stay. It was a very rainy weekend so we didn't spend a lot of time outside. With all the games, movies and puzzles, we were able to have some great family time. Even our 12 and 13 year old boys wanted to stay in and do puzzles. That never happens! The house comes furnished with anything and everything you could ever need and then some. You don't have to bring ANYTHING except food. It even comes with 2 dog beds. A little one and a big one. Perfect for our furry kids :)
I definitely recommend this property. I'm sure we'll be staying here again! Have Fun!

|Great Beach house!>|
A fully equipped and beautiful beach house, only a couple blocks from the beach in a very private, wooded location, just north of downtown Long Beach. The detail and scope of the furnishings and accoutrements meets every need. The kitchen was a real delight! The house is essentially a tri-level, so the stairs should be considered for the very young, and those with physical disabilities. On the the other hand, three of our party are disabled and they were able to cope with the stairs. The plus of a tri-level is that it useful to segregate indoor activities. Many fun activities are at this house beside the beach and the community.
We had a great stay and hope to return soon.
|Craig Y. (review from Vrbo)|
|Best VRBO experience yet!>|
|What a great house in a great spot. We really enjoyed the privacy of the lot while being located in a spot that was close to town and a simple walk to the beach. The house has ALL the amenities you can imagine with what seemed to be a complete recent remodel. Easily the cleanest and best VRBO house our family of 5 has rented.|

|Beautiful Retreat Home>|
|Three active generations had a terrific time at this lovely, well planned home. We stayed 3 days and wished it could have been longer. We rode bicycles on the fantastic Discovery Trail, walked out to the beach on a lovely trail, dug razor clams, and saw some great sights on Long Beach Peninsula which is one of our favorite areas. The World Kite Museum, Heritage Museum, Cape Disappointment, and Leadbetter State Park are great sites to visit. We all enjoy preparing meals and the kitchen was a dream to use. Well organized and spacious. Before our arrival the heat had been turned on and we appreciated stepping in to a warm place. The house was spotless and even more lovely than the pictures. The owner thought of everything.|

|Fabulous Beach Getaway!>|
|We rented the house for a long weekend, what a perfect spot for a relaxing getaway. Our kids loved the spiral, lighthouse-style staircase up to their room. The kitchen and dining room provide a great, open gathering spot and the downstairs den is perfect for watching movies. The house is also stocked with everything you need for the beach, which is an easy walk down the path through the dunes. Can't wait to come back!|

|Vacation November 2013>|
|We stayed at this home during Thanksgiving week in 2013. The location to the beach was wonderful, the privacy around the house was terrific since we have a dog that barks at passing vehicles and unknown people - she was calm and happy. The house itself was beautiful inside, clean and stocked with some extras that came in handy, the nice extra touches - the heated master bath floor, the large shower and jetted tub and above all the great master king bed. Very nice appliances and furniture. We would return again - it was a very nice vacation time away.|

|Such a great place to get away to. So relaxing and kid friendly. Lots of instructions making everything very easy. Thank you so much for accommodating us :)|

|They've thought of everything!>|
We spent our one year wedding anniversary at Toby's place and it was absolutely wonderful! Toby and his family have thought of EVERYTHING. The kitchen is fully, fully stocked (we even came across a punch bowl and service for 10!!) and a delight to cook in. At one point during the weekend, I marveled at the fact that there were FIVE of us in the kitchen prepping food and no one's elbows were touching. There's THAT much space. The second sink is SUCH a nice touch. The place is stocked with lots of different appliances (Kitchen Aid, pancake griddle) along with basic spices and even flour and sugar in case you feel like whipping up brownies. It's a cook's vacation house dream. It was super easy for us to entertain and feed a crowd- the guests sidled up to the bar and sipped cocktails and snacked and chatted while we chopped and diced. The deck was perfect for enjoying some peace and quiet and hot coffee in the morning.
The wrap-around driveway was handy for unloading into two different parts of the house (rec room and kitchen). The garage is just packed to the gills with all sorts of toys and bikes. We didn't actually wind up using much since the beach is a mere three minute walk from the house! (We saw bald eagles!) The property is ideally located- far enough away from the main part of town that you enjoy some seclusion and privacy, but close enough that supplies and entertainment are just a hop, skip, and a jump away.
The game room is a marvel to behold. There are sooo many options. We even found a pad of paper and freshly sharpened pencils to keep score during our very competitive game of dominoes! Seriously- this house has it ALL!
We felt completely at home the minute we walked in the door. We WILL be back to celebrate our anniversary with friends for as many years as Toby and family will have us!

|This house is amazing >|
|This house is so beautiful! My favorite place was the kitchen and the patio. We stayed with 2 other couples and kids ages 4-11, there was so much to do! We needed a longer vacation to really enjoy it all. The owner thought of everything you would need. We reserved the house very last minute but you would never know it, it was a very easy process. I hope to stay here again sometime and would recommend this rental to anyone. It's a great location, pretty private, and a gorgeous place an kid friendly! Only thing it's missing is a hot tub! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!|

|Fantastic Vacation Rental>|
|We stayed here in August of 2013 and were extremely pleased with the rental. The house is beautiful and very well maintained. Everything is very well marked and the guest instructions are thorough. The owners also provide a generous amount of equipment for use including bikes, strollers and equipment for beach fires. The beach is beautiful and a very short walk away along a private path.|

|Family of six>|
The home is recently remodeled and in excellent condition. The master suite was a dream away from home and the kitchen invited staying in to eat. The 3rd floor bedroom was a good get away for a teenage daughter with her own bathroom. The lower floor family room served well as a third bedroom. The home is located an easy walk away from the beach. Plenty of beach toys, chairs and towels. An evening beach fire with wood provided - excellent. Quiet location, very relaxing, easy drive into town.
The golden lab wore himself out everyday!!

|Beautiful, Well-Outfitted Retreat!>|
The only down side to our vacation at this home was that we couldn't stay longer! It is incredibly well-organized and stocked with everything we could have wished for, from movies and games to bikes, ping-pong, beach chairs and towels, nice linens, wi-fi.....even a basket of fliip-flops by the downstairs door. It was spotless when we arrived and the interior is brand-new. This is a place to play and relax. Our group ranged in age from 10-78, and there was truly something for everyone.
As others have mentioned, the walk to the beach is beautiful and easy. We had sunshine and almost no wind during our stay, even though the forecast said 64 and partly cloudy. The deck gets nice afternoon sun. And the kitchen is indeed spectacular, and big enough that several cooks can work at once without bumping into each other.
We enjoyed strolling along the Boardwalk and Discovery Trail, and some of the kids took the go-carts for a spin in town. The Pickled Fish restaurant is a fun place for adults to eat or hit the happy hour. On our next trip we hope to ride bikes to the lighthouse.
The owner was very responsive, checking in before and after our stay. I would highly recommend this rental!

|Great place to stay>|
|Great place - well equiped with everything - our family especially enjoyed the puzzles. Walk to the beach was nice, easy to find path. Liked the location, quiet and peaceful but not too far from downtown. Would definately recommend this place to friends and we will look to rent this house the next time we come to Long Beach.|

|Beach Vacation Rental with it ALL!>|
This house provides the best of both worlds for me, growing up we either went to the beach or camping in the woods. This house is on a wooded lot just a short walk from the beach. The kids spent a good part of the afternoon hanging out at the beach tossing a frisbee and a good part of the evening was spent sharing stories around the fire on the beach. The rock fireplace in the family room made for a nice cozy evening after we returned from the beach.
The kitchen in this house is to die for, lots of space, two sinks and all high end appliances make this a cooks dream. With 2 full and 2 half baths, this house would be perfect for a girls' weekend at the beach.
This is by far one of the nicest beach rentals we have stayed at. The owner has gone all out to make this a comfortable welcoming home for renters of all ages. We did not venture far from the house, but we are looking forward to staying again so we can explore more of what Long Beach has to offer.

|What A Gorgeous House!>|
My 10-day stay in this house was fantastic. It's close enough to Long Beach to make trips to the store really convenient, but far enough out that you avoid traffic and pedestrians. The kitchen is stocked with just about every gadget and utensil imaginable, with new appliances and a huge gas stove with a hood. Every room in this house is great, especially the master suite. The photos frankly don't do the house justice. The house was spotless when I got there, and I was given a number to call of local person to call if I needed anything. In addition, the owner was really helpful and attentive. It was so quiet and peaceful! The garage has a ton of beach equipment, and for rainy days the office is stocked with DVDs, books, comics, and a stereo. Bring bug-spray if you are spending a lot of time on the deck, though, because those mosquitos are starving!!!
I would absolutely recommend this listing to friends or family (or complete strangers). You will be impressed!
|Natalie R. (review from Vrbo)|
Beautiful house with everything in it that you will need to relax and enjoy your stay there! We were here with our four kids and everyone found something to look at, read, or play with in this house! Most of all they all loved the log table with chairs! Full kitchen, beds are comfortable and linen fresh. The beach is a short walk away that we enjoyed walking to. Kids used the beach toys to play in the sand. We are looking forward to coming here again! Enjoyed the lighthouses and hiking trails in the area. Recommend for everyone who wants to relax, spend quality time with family, and enjoys the nature!
Thank you. I'm glad everyone enjoyed themselves.
