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.

|Although only there for a couple of nights, I can’t imagine a better vacation spot for a family. The kids had an absolute blast and repeatedly asked when we might be able to come back.|
|Stephanie (review from Airbnb)|
|Perfect home and location!|
|Katie (review from Airbnb)|
|Our family had an incredible stay here! The house is beautiful — so spacious, designed to enhance the natural light, stylish decor and very comfortable. The layout worked perfectly for our family with two little kids. I was blown away by how many amenities there are — everything you could possibly need is neatly organized and available. We didn’t have time to use most of the fun games and activities that are available (next time!). I really appreciate the thoughtfulness of the digital house manual which had detailed house information, plus local recommendations. On top of how fantastic the experience was, Toby was a wonderful host - responsive to my questions and proactively would check in to make sure all was well. Our family can’t wait to come back!! Thank you Toby!|
|Laurie (review from Airbnb)|
|I would challenge anyone out there looking for vacation rentals to find a better-equipped, more beautiful property than this one. Toby’s Seagrass home is exactly as listed - I encourage you to read every single word of the amenities and description - it unbelievably delivers on EVERYTHING. This home has a natural, relaxing quality to it - it’s understated in the best kind of way and yet you see and feel the quality of its furnishings and amenities everywhere you look. It may seem like it’s a little more expensive than similar rentals, but I assure you, the location and beautiful usability of this home is more than worth the cost. This is truly a home that was lovingly built for a family that’s being lovingly shared with other families for the sheer pleasure of doing so. And if this were all not enough, Toby is responsive and informative and kind. It doesn’t get better than this rental and this owner. A+++|
|John (review from Airbnb)|
|Great house with high-end kitchen. Many entertainment options.|
|Allison (review from Airbnb)|
|Wonderful stay at the beach. Everything we needed, and every detail thought of. Very comfy beds, beautiful design, lovely walk to the beach, and everything you could need to keep kids busy all weekend. We will be back.|
|We rented this house, along with an adjacent property, for a weekend retreat for a group of people. It was our second year in a row using this property, and it is excellent. Believe it or not, the place is even nicer than what the pictures show. The owner is fantastic to work with, as well. I highly recommend it!|
|Jay B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Seagrass was an excellent choice!>|
|Kimberly (review from Airbnb)|
|What a wonderful place! The kitchen was a dream. No detail went untouched. Will definitely be back!|
|Excellent Experience As Always>|
|The first time we booked Seagrass we were blown away by the home, it's thoughtful custom details, and access to the beach. Rebooking for our second trip we had all of that to look forward to but what blew us away this time around was the level of service. We ran into an issue at a challenging time of day - evening on a weekend - and Toby was immediately responsive and remedied everything within 30 minutes. That level of service is incomparable to other vacation rentals. Very grateful to have found Seagrass and we look forward to booking our third visit in 2023.|
|Absolutely perfect in all the ways, and one of our family's favorite houses to rent in an adorably wonderful beach town. The house gets better each time we stay there too.|
|Super-well equipped house in perfect shape!>|
|Very nice house, plenty comfortable for the six of us, within a 5 minute walk of the beach. Best equipped house, game- and kitchen-wise, I've ever seen! The can opener was so fancy we had to Youtube how to use it :-). The game room, awesome, spent many hours there. Only thing we'd ask is that all pens be tossed out that do not work (there are many empties; we had trouble playing Telestrations, one of our faves) and that the knives be sharpened, or that a knife sharpener be available (if there was one, we couldn't find it). A working icemaker in the fridge would be good too, but we survived with the ice cube trays provided. Definitely would stay again!|
|What a beautiful home!>|
|Seagrass is a wonderful place to spend time. I rented the home for my birthday with a group of friends and enjoyed clamming, mushroom foraging, beach strolling (beach a 5 minute stroll away), nighttime beach bonfire, cooking, baking, game room playing and more. Everyone in the house wanted to know where the bedding and pillows came from because they were like sleeping on a cloud. The house had (literally) every utensil one could need (each in its place and labeled). Want to shape your burger into the perfect shape? Got it. Waffle? Got it. Waffle bowl? No problem. And so on. Tons of games both physical and virtual. Bonus? I found porcini mushrooms across the street. Truly a wonderful getaway and worth every dime. Thank you!|
|Maura (review from Airbnb)|
|This place is gorgeous and fun for everyone! Toby has thought of everything. And everything has it’s place, the organization in this home is impeccable. Makes it so helpful when you are in someone else’s space. Indoor and outdoor activities, alongside a lovely walk to the beach! What a dream.|
|Mark (review from Airbnb)|
|This house has everything we wanted and some stuff we hadn’t even considered; well equipped, organized, and labeled. It definitely felt like home for the weekend. Toby was extremely communicative and I felt well hosted leading up to, during, and after my stay!|
|Sharla H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Five star plus!>|
|This is a very nice property. The location is right on the beach. The house was spotless with beautiful furnishings. I always like to point out one thing that an owner can do to improve their property for the next guest. There literally is nothing missing in this house that needs improving. This is probably the most well appointed and stocked home I have ever rented. We had a great time. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful property with our family.|
|Carol C. (review from Vrbo)|
|We are 10 ladies that have been meeting every October for 30 years. We have been all over Washington and Oregon and nothing has ever compared to this home. Amazing!|
|Rich S. (review from Vrbo)|
Toby's Seagrass is the most amazing place we've ever stayed in. Everything you might imagine needing has been thoughtfully provided. The house itself is wonderful and the game room was well used throughout our visit. We just loved our time there (6 days).
Toby was extremely responsive to any questions we had.
Overall, we would love to return! Toby -- many,many thanks!
|Elizabeth M. (review from Vrbo)|
|The Perfect Vacation Home>|
|Our family gathered here for the second time since one year ago. The house is clean, organized, and comfortable. We settled right in and had the most amazing time. There are ten of us and found the house to be quite adequate for all. The home is pet friendly which is a huge plus for me. We all recommend this place for your next family gathering.|
|mallory s. (review from Vrbo)|
|The Perfect Vacation Home>|
|This home is without a doubt the BEST home I have ever rented. My now-husband and I stayed here during our wedding weekend with our 8 guests and had a fantastic time. The house felt like our 11th guest by the end of it. Toby was a fabulous host, so communicative, kind, and helpful. It is abundantly clear in every detail of this house that it was built & furnished with love and care. We marveled over the extremely well-appointed kitchen, killer game room, excellent layout and superb location - daily walks to the beach are a must! We are already planning the next visit and can't wait to come back. Thank you, Toby!|
|Dina F. (review from Vrbo)|
|5 star property. The beds were as comfortable as any luxury resort, the game room kept us all entertained for hours, and the kitchen was a dream to prepare meals in. A quiet, gated neighborhood with a short walk to the beach was the perfect destiny for any occasion. We will return.|
|Chris R. (review from Vrbo)|
|This property is perfect for a group of friends or family. Amazing location, walk to beach and has every amenity and activity you could want. The game room was awesome to have, lot of time spent in there. Beds are all very comfortable and kitchen is stocked with everything. This is the 2nd place we’ve stayed at from Toby and they don’t compare, he puts so much time into them to make sure his guests have the best time.|
|Liz O. (review from Vrbo)|
|This house is epic. We loved the location, the well-appointed kitchen and bedrooms, the incredible game room and the outdoor hot and bathtubs. The blackout shades are a win and the never-ending sports channels made our long weekend sublime. We can’t wait to return.|
|Jennifer (review from Airbnb)|
|The perfect house for a family getaway! The house was a great gathering space and the layout of the rooms made it so that everyone wasn’t on top of each other. Amazing stocked kitchen, and so nice to stay in a stylish and unique home that allows pets! Highly recommend to anyone looking to stay close to the beach with lots to enjoy for days at home as well.|
|Elizabeth S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Something for Everyone>|
|The Seagrass listing is exceptional in detailing all of the amenities of this property. There is something for everyone. We enjoyed the location being close to town and very close to the North end of the Discovery Trail. We enjoyed our meals at home in the well equipped kitchen - and groceries were nearby if needed. And while we came to enjoy the ocean beach, when we were tired we enjoyed the game room or just lounging with a book. Toby is very responsive to inquiries or needs and this is an A++ property!|
|Michael B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful place in the Pacific Northwest coast. The house is a vacation by itself and a perfect place to stay. Highly recommend.|
|Allison C. (review from Vrbo)|
|All details carefully planned!>|
|This is our second stay, and won’t be our last. This home is intricately planned out to provide the perfect vacation, regardless of weather. We were never at a loss for something to do from relaxing on the hammocks, to beach days, to all the games or making the perfect meal. A must stay!!!|
|Ricki (review from Airbnb)|
|I would recommend this home to all looking for a great week away from home. We had mixed ages, and it was perfect for that kind of blend, with easy areas to be apart for playing, making noise, being quiet, watching shows, and great spaces to all be together. The beds were so comfortable which doesn’t always happen. There was great attention to items for the beach which I really liked - with the quality above average. I also appreciated the outdoor shower for the sand factor. I could go on about all the ways that the house worked for us, and how Toby responded quickly and checked in about any questions ahead of time - to make it a great and easy vacation- and will certainly recommend to anyone I know looking in that area for a great house.|
|Christina V. (review from Vrbo)|
|Wonderful home! Very beautiful wood interior, comfortable bed, amazing kitchen, and amenities galore>|
|We would love to stay longer!|
|Greg & Linda B. (review from Vrbo)|
|The house is lovely, very comfortable and complete. The whole family enjoyed the game room, the outdoor volley ball court, the jacuzzi and easy access to the beach. The master showers were amazing. The kitchen was well organized and fully equipped. We enjoyed time together, but also space to spread out.|
|Derrick (review from Airbnb)|
|Great vacation home and host super friendly and considered. Can only recommend!|
|Paul (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby's place is everything you could imagine wanting in a vacation rental. It was perfect for our two families to enjoy time together. The game room was our favorite part and he provided everything we could need to stay comfortable and entertained while enjoying the beach and hanging at the house. There is no chance to be bored in this thoughtfully planned and well stocked home. Absolutely would recommend!|
|Joseph (review from Airbnb)|
|We had a wonderful visit. Looking forward to staying again.|
|Nicole B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Seagrass Beach House>|
|The stay was amazing. The house has everything you could need for a weekend trip away. The kitchen was completely stocked with every and any instrument you may need, with a full spice rack, and some basic pantry staples too. The hot tub and jet tubs were a hit, and the garage had enough activities that we really didn’t have a need to leave the property! Very satisfied with our stay, and will be renting this out again in the future.|
|Amber M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Already Looking Forward to the Next Visit!>|
|Where do I even begin? I have been coming to Long Beach with my immediate and extended family my entire life. We generally stay in separate hotels, and just recently decided to start renting VRBO properties so that we can all stay together. We always travel with a group of 7 to 9 people, and our dog. THIS HOUSE WAS INCREDIBLE and absolutely PERFECT for our family getaway!!! Everybody had their own bedrooms and practically their own bathrooms. My teenage son was able to have his own space in the stunning apartment above the garage/game room which was so great for him (this was his 17th birthday trip!). It is incredibly obvious how much time and effort that the owners put into this property so that other families can enjoy it. The home is BEAUTIFUL and is fully stocked and decorated with top of the line items. There are puzzles, video games and movies galore, which worked out perfectly for us as the weather wasn’t the best this weekend. You cannot think of an item that this place does not have! We had so much fun, and the check in and check out process was so incredibly detailed that it made everything seamless. My initial contact with the owner during booking was quick, easy, and pleasant! I had no reason to contact him during our stay (everything was flawless), but no doubt would have gotten through immediately if needed. I almost did not want to talk about this property because I want it all to myself, ha ha! But that wouldn’t be fair and I know it… So if you’re thinking of a place to stay with a large group (or not!), you absolutely cannot go wrong with this property! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay and we look forward to our next visit!!!|
|Michael (review from Airbnb)|
|This house was great for my family vacation. Easy access to the beach and had plenty of entertainment for when it was raining out.|
|Tom P. (review from Vrbo)|
|Indoor & outdoor games galore!>|
|Property was immaculately clean and organized. Kitchen was stacked with everything you could need -- my girlfriend is a professional chef and commented numerous times on the quality of the cutlery. Most importanlty though, this house is designed for families who love games; there's dozens of board games, several video game consoles with all the biggest hits and 4 controllers, plus a garage with a pool table, ping pong, corn hole and shuffle board. And finally, they have a volleyball net and court. And my family did it all! A + recommendation|
|Lori H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great Family Time>|
|We had a great time at this house. The house is so well organized and equipped. No matter the weather, you will no lack for anything to do. We would definitely stay at this house again.|
|Heather A. (review from Vrbo)|
|We had a lovely stay at Long Beach. It was the rest and retreat that our family needed. There was some many activities to do at the house as well a quick walk to the beach. I loved hearing the waves at night from my room. There was every kitchen gadget you could think of there. Toby was quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had.|
|Vijay (review from Airbnb)|
This was easily, far and away, in too many years to count of staying in AirBnB's, the most thoughtfully designed, well-appointed, and lovingly cared for stay we've ever had. Toby has an amazing eye for detail, everything was labeled and had a place, all appliances and utensils (Oh, the utensils!) were of the very highest quality, you could tell from the moment you walked in that this was a real labor of love. SPECTACULAR!
The game room is also so clutch. We had a couple of kids and adults all crammed together early in the season, so we didn't spend all that much time at the windy/rainy beach. So, having shuffleboard, foosball, Pac-man/Galaga, a pool table, all of that just across the way in a separate area was essential.
Toby is also unbelievably responsive, even after the stay when we had to sort out some post-visit details.
This is a lovely retreat, private, quiet, with everything you need just a few minutes' drive north or south.
|Amy (review from Airbnb)|
|Great place to stay on the coast! The house has everything you could ever need to enjoy a vacation and is perfect for families and large groups. The list of available amenities and activities are endless. The kitchen was especially nice as it had everything we needed and was extremely organized. You can tell a lot of thought went into this home and I would 100% recommend this to anyone looking to stay in Long Beach.|
|Simon (review from Airbnb)|
What a wonderful place!! Very convenient to the beach (a 0.25 mile walk), quiet, beautiful home that was a joy to stay at. It had everything (and a ton more) that you could ever want to ensure a thoroughly enjoyable stay. If wet, as it was for our first two days, the games room and board game options were fantastic and had something for everyone. We had deer roaming about the yard in the morning, and complete peace and quiet, which really made this a perfect stay. In addition, the host was incredibly fast and efficient at communication, and always responded within an hour of any email or question we had.
I would rate this truly as a 5 star experience, and though outside our normal budget, it was a fantastic experience, and just right for my wife's 50th birthday celebration, and the friends who came with us.
|The home is beautiful and has everything your family or friends will need for a great stay. Easy walk to the beach, games and entertainment for indoor fun!|
|Frank (review from Airbnb)|
|The house is fantastic. It has plenty of space, a great kitchen, comfortable furniture & beds, generous bathrooms, and many TVs that make for a long comfortable stay. It's a brief pleasant walk to the beach. Volleyball court and hot tub are great amenities, and the game room is perfect way to wait out poor weather. Also, all the little amenities (like coolers, beach chairs, cart, and kitchen gadgets) enhance the experience that much more. Great place, would stay again.|
|Jan (review from Airbnb)|
Excellent experience. A well-managed home, curated to make the most of your holiday. Worth ever $. We made some special memories and will be back. I'm pretty neat and organized, but I couldn't stop gawking at the set-up of the house. The interior design is also integrated and carried throughout the space. Careful consideration was obviously given to each small detail. The plants and art throughout the house are unique.
There are enough games, activities and viewing entertainment for every age group. All you have to do is kick back and relax.
Within easy reach of the beach for walks or drives; be sure to drive to Oysterville Sea Farms for fresh oysters and have dinner at the Lost Roo.
|Rebecca (review from Airbnb)|
|This house was amazing, had all the items that you could possibly think of ready and labeled. Our group had a fabulous time. Toby was a great host, very communicative and made sure we had a great stay! Thank you!!|
|Stephania G. (review from Vrbo)|
|Incredible Long Beach Property>|
|My grandmother and grandfather and my mom and dad honeymooned in Long Beach and in recent years owned property here for two decades. My dad is a local author on Long Beach history and a Community Historians Project member. To say we love Long Beach is inadequate. This property is simply put; incredible. The attention to detail in a culinary lovers kitchen is bar none. There is nothing they have not thought of from the multitude of games to the plethora of beach gear they provide and that is not even mentioning the luxurious accommodations. I challenge you to find a more superior rental on the coast.|
|Amy (review from Airbnb)|
|This is one of the best Airbnbs we've ever rented! The place was clean, and the kitchen was amazing! Everything was labeled and it was well equipped, perfect for our group because we love cooking. The board games and the game room was well thought out and was perfect for day activities. The beach is a close walk to the house, about 4-7 minutes. We loved our stay and plan to rent this place again!|
|Ryan D. (review from Vrbo)|
|Very Nice Place for a Large Group>|
|This place is nice! We loved staying here as a part of a church group retreat for adults. The whole house is just really beautiful. And accessory dwelling unit above the garage is awesome, and the game room in the garage is excellent, as well. The whole house is comfortable and inviting, and we plan to be back here next year, as well!|
|Jason H. H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Really Amazing Property>|
|My friends and I took a work-cation out to Long Beach and stayed at the Seagrass house. The house is amazing. The kitchen has everything you could ever imagine. The beds were just perfect. The only thing keeping this from being a total 5 star stay is the issues we had with the fireplace halfway through the trip. A spot by the beach with a fireplace was one of our top criteria. We also had a few spotty issues with wi-fi the last two days. All in all though, we adored the house and will definitely consider another stay!|
|Cheryl B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Excellent location. Short walk to the beach. Fun activities in the house.>|
Fun to walk to town and visit state parks. Beautiful sunsets.
Hot Tub, games, volleyball and garage game room-super fun.
|Elizabeth (review from Airbnb)|
|Beautiful home with literally everything you need for a weekend away with a large group! You don’t need to leave unless you want to.|
|Ashley (review from Airbnb)|
|Seagrass was a complete delight, the experience that probably brought us all to airbnb in the beginning and will keep us coming back. The house is beautiful and thoughtfully decorated with the comfiest beds, parachute linens, top of the line ammenities. Will certainly be returning.|
|Mike C. (review from Vrbo)|
My family and I were blown away by how great this home was. You could really tell that the owner has thought through every detail. The game room was the highlight as the adults AND the kids spent every night after dinner playing together in it.
Fantastic property. Will definitely stay here again.
|Eric (review from Airbnb)|
|impeccable property, easily the high water mark of any Airbnb I've stayed in. Everything is true to the pictures, the house is a wonderful getaway, and the amenities are both thoughtful and meticulous.|
|Dawn (review from Airbnb)|
|My family & I are forever spoiled. Toby sets the bar w/this property. We are grateful to have the opportunity & option to retreat to Seagrass the past two years. The game room tops all others. We will be back, it's becoming a family tradition.|
|Laura M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Board Game Weekend!>|
|7 friends coming together for a weekend of board games! The kitchen table was perfect, rooms were amazing - and the arcade made for a nice surprise for some who didn't look at pictures of the house before staying!|
|Tammy (review from Airbnb)|
|This house was exceptional! Wonderful and peaceful!|
|David (review from Airbnb)|
|We found Seagrass for a last-minute birthday weekend away near the beach. What an awesome house!! Well appointed, meticulously organized, and obviously designed for maximum relaxation. We particularly enjoyed the board games, game room, hot tub and hammock. A short walk to the beach, toddler and furry child friendly — we’ll be back. Thanks Toby!|
|Anonymous (review from Vrbo)|
|Best Beach Vacation>|
|Wow, what a place! Toby has thought of everything to make for a comfortable, relaxing beach retreat. From the perfect location a short walk through the beach grass to the water, to the largest selection of board games, video games, and indoor and outdoor entertainment options imaginable, to the cleanest and most well-appointed (and labeled!) kitchen, this place truly has it all. The beach house has the classiest finishes and amenities of any place we’ve ever stayed — there’s literally nothing we would change about it! Our two families, with kids ranging from 9-13 plus two dogs, had a blast. We were sad to leave, and we can’t wait to come back. Highly recommend!|
|Tristan T. (review from Vrbo)|
|Lovely Beach Vacat>|
|Delightfully well equipped, fully fun-filled beach house perfect for eight girlfriends on a yearly gathering to relax and unwind. Luxurious and cozy and loaded with too many amenities to really appreciate in a weekend. Next time will book for a week!|
|Brianna (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby’s house beach house was amazing! It was spotless and had fantastic amenities. This place has everything - we couldn’t have asked for more. We are definitely coming back for a repeat visit. A weekend getaway was not enough!|
|Elizabeth M. (review from Vrbo)|
|This was the perfect place to gather our adult children and grandchildren. We had the most wonderful time. There was lots of activities, games, and space for everyone. The home is very organized, clean, and everything you could possible need was right there in the house. We highly recommend this vacation home for your next adventure.|
|Perfect family setting>|
|Seagrass was the perfect family getaway, with plenty of room for all to roam. The rental is filled with all the amenities one could think of and more. The game room was a big success for all ages. We were able to have a bon fire on the beach which was probably my favorite part. We will definitely be back.|
|Teresa L. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful and thoughtful house>|
|My family just celebrated my father's 80th birthday at Seagrass and we had a wonderful time. The house is so well appointed - Toby has not only thought of everything in terms of design, but has put the house together with upscale yet comfortable and functional items. I also love that the house is just north of town, so it's still a short distance to stores, but the beach is not crowded. Beautiful house, beautiful location.|
|Rose S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Peaceful Home Amid the Seagrasses>|
|Six friends, most of us retired, we’re looking for a spot from which to relax, cook, and be near the ocean. We came upon the perfect place. First of all, the property and furnishings are beautifully crafted wood with amazing details. You can hear the ocean everywhere, and it is a short walk to the beach. We created some wonderful meals in the kitchen and enjoyed them together on the long log table. We loved our time at Seagrass and hope to return.|
|Joshua (review from Airbnb)|
This is one of the best airbnbs that we have stayed at! It has so many great amenities for a group and it's obvious that Toby has put a lot of thought into this home. From the volleyball court right outside the back door, to the super spacious hot tub that worked incredibly well, it was easy for everyone to find something to do. Toby was also very communicative and responsive, which made it nice the day of when we decided to add on the additional bedroom.
For anyone booking this place, note that the kitchen is very well stocked. It had so many things that we weren't expecting (ice cream maker, blender, wok, etc).
|randi n. (review from Vrbo)|
|Loving Long Beach>|
|The house was lovely and the setting was idyllic. After 18 months of running a business through COVID, I desperately needed a few days away from work and wanted to spent it with family and friends. This was the perfect choice. We cooked, we talked, we walked to the beach, we played indoor and outdoor games and we rested and refreshed our minds and bodies. Thanks to Toby for opening his house to our group.|
|Eric S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great beach stay>|
|Close enough to the beach for a quick walk. Tons of games to keep entertained.|
|Allison C. (review from Vrbo)|
|Best vacation home!>|
|If you are looking for the perfect spot for a coastal visit, this is it! We all know it will rain, so the owner has done a fantastic job with providing DAYS of indoor entertainment with the game room, hundreds of board games/video games, puzzles, etc. The kitchen is fully stocked and has things you would have never even thought of. The property is perfect, near the ocean, but not right on it, which we preferred to allow for a nice walk to the beach daily. We booked our stay for next year while there!|
|Diana M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Nice house until we checked out>|
Overall the house and location were great until we checked out. Owner made false claims on the travel insurance that we had to take out. He made a claim for 3 PlayStation games that we never used and then a claim for a door casing. He said there was a crack in the plastic door casing. Beware of false claims. The beds were not comfortable due to a hump in the middle from the feather mattress cover.
Diana disputed the 2 missing PS3 games, #12 and #15 out of the 30 games provided. It is not uncommon for video games to go missing and they are checked before and after each stay. I called her to speak about the games and she was unable to talk with me until about 4 days later after I had filed the claim. She was upset and could not fathom that someone might of taken them. I could see how much it bothered her and told her I would update my claim. After getting off the phone, I immediately messaged the claims adjuster that the guest denied the possibility of anyone in her party might of taken or lost the missing games. The claim ended up being processed anyway. This is obviously upsetting to her, and for that I apologize. I try my best to get it right, juggling what my housekeepers find with my guests feedback. I quite often eat the cost of damage and missing items in order to not upset a guest. This house has Tempur-pedic mattresses, with down mattress toppers for both master suites. If you prefer to remove the down mattress topper you are absolutely welcome to do so :)

|Something for Everyone and Everything you need!>|
|Best family beach vacation ever! We love this house. We could not believe the fully stocked kitchen with a big beautiful island. The grandchildren loved the hammocks, the complete wall of box games and puzzles and the wonderful sand volleyball court. We walked the path to the beach and then played ping pong and shuffleboard in the game room garage. We made special family memories!|
|Angela S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Once again the house and all of its amenities made for a fabulous time.|

|Seagrass was the best!>|
|Toby has his vacation rentals dialed. You will have everything you need plus more to make your stay the best. He has thought of every imaginable detail. There is something for everyone. The house is so tastefully furnished and the cleanest rental we have every stayed in. I can't wait to return.|
|Lincoln (review from Airbnb)|
|Kelly R. (review from Vrbo)|
|A perfect stay>|
|All seven of us adults and two dogs had ample room to spread out in this wonderful and relaxing home by the beach. We all agree this is our favorite rental home for our annual family getaway. There was plenty of things to do no matter the weather. We enjoyed the hammocks, hot tub, volleyball court, game room (billiards and shuffle board were a favorite) and had a hard time deciding which board to play as the choices are endless. The kitchen is very well stocked and makes meal prep fun and easy. We definitely want to return!|
|Sharon R. (review from Vrbo)|
This home and property are gorgeous. The ocean is only a short walk through the sea grass and you can walk for miles. The beautiful stocked kitchen was perfect.
We will definitely be back.
Thank you Toby for sharing your perfect home.
|Crystal H. (review from Vrbo)|
|We had a great time! House has more than expected! Multiple kitchen gadgets, hammocks, dog supplies, and other items we didn’t even get a chance to use. It was a great clean place to stay!|

|This was our second stay at this property and it was just as fantastic as the first time! Even with the weather not perfect we had so much to do at this house, for children and adults! Truly feels like a relaxing getaway. The detail and thought that has gone into the design and comfort aspects of this house is spectacular. They truly make this property feel like your home away from home. We will be back again next year!|
|Marc E. (review from Vrbo)|
|Best Beach house I have ever stayed at... Ever!>|
Fantastic property for those that like to be active and enjoy games of all types and gaming counsels in each room including an old school arcade game. Amazingly well equipped on all points. Dishes, cookware, beach items like chairs, cart to pull to the beach, kites, kiddy sand toys, etc. Not to mention puzzles, board games (a whole wall of them and if you can't find it, it probably was never mainstream popular).
Overall a fantastic stay, and even when we had a problem, Toby answered his personal phone and got the ball rolling to solve the problem we had with the dishwasher.
|Brent R. (review from Vrbo)|
|The house far exceeded our expectations.>|
|This house was clean, and so comfortable with something for everyone (all at the same time). There is NO WAY you could be board or uncomfortable during your stay here!! Incredible memories and so thankful for our family getaway at this place! We will definitely be back!!|
|Joseph (review from Airbnb)|
|This home is fantastic and stocked with everything you will need for a weekend at the beach. Additionally, it is extremely clean, well organized, and maintained. Our family is looking forward to returning.|
|Amanda D. (review from Vrbo)|
|Long beach getaway>|
|The house was amazing. It was very well stocked and organized. Loved being so close to the beach. Our family definitely wants to stay here again and probably invite others.|
|Shantelle (review from Airbnb)|
|This home is a perfect getaway! Extremely clean, organized, and well taken care of. We cannot wait to come back.|
|Amanda (review from Airbnb)|
|Stayed at a lot of Airbnb's, and can say that Toby's beach home is truly special and memorable. It is thoughtfully curated for guests, sparkling clean, and incredibly well-stocked from kitchen supplies to amenities to home entertainment to any game you can think of - all neatly labeled and accounted for. We've come here twice with friends, dogs, and kids in the last five years, and it's a treat. Everyone loved their stay, and there's something for everyone. It was a little like a playground for adults: volleyball court, hot tub, bath tubs on the balcony, shuffle board, ping pong, arcade games, Ps2, foosball, corn hole, and more. The beds were super comfortable and plush, and the bed linens were high quality linens. It's in a quiet area and a five-minute walk to the beach, but the house itself and the way Toby has curated it is what sets this place apart. Also, Toby was always very responsive and communicative when I had questions.|
|Samara (review from Airbnb)|
|This place couldn't be more perfect. It was the first time I booked an Airbnb Plus and now I don't think I can go back. Toby set the bar so high and we continued to be impressed with how easy it was to find things around the beach house and how he thought about everything, and I mean everything! We had puzzles and games galore, hammocks to relax in all around the exterior, could stay warm in front of the fire and outside in the hot tub, and had family dinners every single night around the dining table. And my nieces had so much fun playing with the kite and beach toys - with a complete wagon to make it easy for us to take things out to the beach, especially for our camp fire on the last night. We were blown away at the overall luxury and I have already started sharing this listing with friends as one of my all-time-favorite family vacation spots. It's a must-stay for anyone visiting Long Beach!|

|Hillary (review from Airbnb)|
|Our spring break at Seagrass was fantastic! The house was very clean and organized with many thoughtful touches that made our vacation extra special. We spent many fun hours in the garage game room playing shuffleboard, ping pong, and arcade games. We loved the hammocks (with hooks on the deck surrounding the house so you can relax wherever you want!). The house is about a 5 minute walk from the beach - we had a bonfire and roasted marshmallows on our last night. We can’t wait to come back for another stay!|
|larry w. (review from Vrbo)|
|Everything you would ever need>|
|This home is totally set up for a family or group to come and enjoy their stay. The beds were comfortable with quality linens. The kitchen had every possible gadget and appliance. There were craft supplies, games, puzzles, movies, gaming systems, tvs/blu ray players in just about every area, an entire garage of table games (pool table, ping pong, foosball, shuffleboard, etc.), hot tub and large soaking tubs on the deck, this list goes in and on. Plus its location is perfect with just a short walk to an almost private beach. We had a couple of items that we had to reach out to the property manager and they were very responsive and took care of the issue. We would definitely return and have already shared this property with friends.|
|michelle l. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great family vacation>|
|Perfect house for a group or family. Lots of space, every game you can imagine, and beautiful property. Toby was great to work with, excellent communication.|
|Natalie (review from Airbnb)|
|We had a great and relaxing time staying at Toby’s house. The walk to the beach is short and the house has everything we need. Loved the hot tub and all the amenities provided. The place is also super clean and well organized.|
|A Family Retreat>|
|Our 2nd time visiting the beautiful and spacious Seagrass house. The house was, as usual, immaculately clean, amazingly appointed, and full of fun amenities. The Game Wall and the Game Room were both huge hits with the family. As the family's unofficial chef, the kitchen was my kingdom, and though I endeavoured to whip up some complicated meals, every possible appliance or tool I could ever want was there at my fingertips. And if all that wasn't enough to put this place over the top, there is the location! It was so nice to take a quiet evening stroll on the beach. I couldn't recommend this house highly enough. We will definitely be back.|
|Raylene (review from Airbnb)|
|Wonderful place to stay. Everything you could need is supplied. Beautiful home. great location, very comfortable family getaway!!|
|Tara B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great long weekend with family>|
Our second time at this home and it was just as amazing as the first time. We lucked out and had goregous sunny weather our entire time and so we took advantage of all the outdoor games, toys, and beach (bundled up for March of course) and had a blast.
My only recommendation would be to get a new pillow topper for the master beds (they're worn in so we ended up with sore backs).
We will be back for sure!! Thanks Toby!!
Both master beds have Tempur-pedic mattresses that are 6 months old. The feather bed topper is down and also 6 months old. If you prefer a firmer surface the topper can easily be removed and placed in the closet. Thank you so much for your continued visits to this house :)
|Heidi (review from Airbnb)|
|This place was beautiful! VERY comfortable! The beds were great, the great room worked really well for extended family relaxing and cooking.|
|Mallory (review from Airbnb)|
|The beach house is beautiful, with great craftsmanship and thoughtfully decorated. The bathrooms are top tier, and the heated floors were fantastic. All the appliances are top notch, and everything throughout the house is thoughtfully organized. It’s a short walk to the beach, and at night we sat outside listening to the waves and watching the stars. The game room was simply awesome- Pac-Man, a pool table, football, shuffleboard, ping pong, and more, plus there were all kinds of board games in the main house.|
|Anonymous (review from Vrbo)|
|All amenities in pristine condition, so many games to play with all the pieces. Game room equipment like new! No need to bring your own pool cue.|
|Kathie O. (review from Vrbo)|
|Every year my girlfriends and I go on a weekend trip for our birthdays. This place is the best one we’ve ever stayed at. It has everything you could want or need. Looking forward to staying here again.|
|Colin S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Fantastic Family Vacation Home>|
|This well outfitted home had everything a family could possibly need for a memorable vacation. From the amazing game room to the beach volleyball court to the shelves of games and puzzles, this house was prepared for every season and weather. Located on a huge lot, it felt extremely private and secure but was still just a short walk to the beach. The attention to detail and organization was astounding. And when I had a question for the owner he answered the phone immediately and was friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.|
|Tricia D. (review from Vrbo)|
|Nice family getaway>|
|We had a great time. The kids really enjoyed the game room!|
|Ryan M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Incredible home with so many amenities. Everything was super clean and well-appointed. So much fun and will definitely consider using again in the future!|
|Brent (review from Airbnb)|
|Such an amazing place. A very short walk to the ocean with an amazing game room. Toby was a great guest who went above and beyond.|
|Molly (review from Airbnb)|
|This house had everything you could think of and more! Perfect for big groups and families and I can only imagine how amazing the stay would be during the summer time! Super clean, stacked with amenities, and thoughtful touches that felt luxurious. Thanks for an amazing stay!|
|Noah (review from Airbnb)|
|Beautiful get away retreat, just a short walk from the beach. It was the perfect space for my family to celebrate my mothers 60th birthday. Loads of games, movies, video games and activities and plenty of space for a large family. Highly recommend.|
|Adam (review from Airbnb)|
|We had the most wonderful time! The house was fully stocked with everything you would need for a wonderful week at the beach. I would highly recommend this house for your next beach getaway.|
|Joel R. (review from Vrbo)|
|AMAZING - LOVED IT>|
|Probably one of the best birthdays with friends that I have had in years. (35)|
|Maggie (review from Airbnb)|
|I imagine it will be hard to ever convince my kids we should ever rent any other house for a holiday. Toby's house is incredible, kept impeccably, wildly organized, outrageously comfortable and completely unique. Any family or group of friends should count themselves lucky to get to stay in such a home.|
|Kevin S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great beach getaway>|
|Would recommend to anyone who loves the beach and being active. Always something to do, no matter the weather.|
|Todd W. (review from Vrbo)|
|Excellent time, great house stocked with everything you need. Plenty board games and table games to enjoy family competitions.|
|Trevor B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Perfect oasis that has it all!>|
|The house and location to the beach are superb. We are a family of 5 that really enjoyed all of the amenities the house offers. The game garage room has a pool table, shuffleboard, TV and plenty of other great things to keep you entertained. Hot tub, badminton/volleyball net and every board game possible are available to use. Property Owner was exceptional to work with and will look to be back over the summer. AMAZING HOUSE.|
|Tim B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Most organized VRBO home ever>|
Everything about this place is perfect except maybe the memory foam beds have too many memories of where people slept in the past.
Brand new Tempur-pedic mattresses for both master suites. The feather bed topper benefits from an occasional fluffing (housekeeping does this between each guest)
|Tammy (review from Airbnb)|
|Absolute gem nestled in a quiet corner of Long Beach. So many thoughtful touches to promote lasting family memories and relaxation. Literally 100 board games, outdoor equipment for beach activities and a private sandy volleyball/badminton court for hours of fun. The kitchen was fully stocked like a Williams Sonoma catalog. The beds were extremely comfortable and the Pendleton linens a thoughtful nod to the Northwestern seascape history. A short walk to the beach made the stay complete. Excellent host and accommodations.|
|Megan (review from Airbnb)|
|Such an amazing home! Beautiful decor, fully equipped kitchen!! The beds were amazing!! We will be back!|
|Lauren K. (review from Vrbo)|
Thank you for another great stay. You have everything we needed to play, eat, sleep and relax!
|Dawn (review from Airbnb)|
|This is an excellent vacation home for those who really appreciate as though they were personally considered in every detail. Our family vacation at Seagrass was nothing short of spectacular. As written in previous reviews, it has everything in the kitchen you can dream of including an entire drawer dedicated to cookie cutters. The design & decor emanate a sumptuousness sense of serenity, a true escape from the chaos of daily life. The wall of games was a treat and there was no end to enjoying the game room amenities. There are plenty of hammock hooks surrounding the home just grab the hammocks from the laundry room closet. The top deck soaker tub(s) hold the heat of hot steamy water for a very long time (at least one-hour by my calculation with a glass of wine or two). It's just a short easy stroll through the beach grass to the beach. Toby has all the details clearly communicated. He was accessible for questions whenever we had them. We will book again without hesitation.|
|Diana W. (review from Vrbo)|
|Amazing beach cabin>|
|Wonderful, comfy house with everything you need to enjoy your weekend getaway. The kids loved it and so did the adults. Will definitely be returning.|
|Shaleah (review from Airbnb)|
|We had such a wonderful time here, and will definitely be back. The home is beautiful, fully stocked with everything you can think of and in the perfect setting.|
|Jeff (review from Airbnb)|
This place is amazing. The beach location, the top shelf amenities and thoughtful details in every direction, and the kind and very responsive host made this one of our favorite AirBnB stays. A wall of games, a kitchen with so every tool and appliance you could imagine - I could go on and on. The house plants were worth the stay themselves!!
Do yourself a favor and stay here. You will be so glad you did!
|Amber R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Fun for adults and kids!>|
|We stayed with a group of families and young kids. We were all super comfortable and had a terrific time! There are so many great touches at this house- from puzzles and games, to the game room, volley ball court and kitchen gadgets. The owner took great care to label everything and consider things that spark joy and lasting memories. The house was sparkling clean and communication was fantastic. We can’t wait to come back sometime soon!|
|Jessica (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby's house is fantastic! The high quality furniture and decor really makes it feel luxurious. All the extra touches were great for the kids - movies, video games, toys, not to mention the entire game room. It felt like home the minute we walked in and we were all sad to leave at the end of the week. Will definitely be back!|
|Kenneth (review from Airbnb)|
|This house had absolutely everything we needed, plus even more. The immense amount of dvds and video games to choose from was an unexpected surprise. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need to cook anything from scrambled eggs to a 5 course meal. Would absolutely stay here again!|
|This house has it all. Beach, games, comfort and the kitchen is stocked full. You won’t be disappointed.|
|Julia T. (review from Vrbo)|
|Lovely, incredibly well-equipped beach home>|
|This was a fantastic place to stay to visit the Washington Coast! There is a short but easy path to the beach, where you can walk for miles. The house is the best-equipped that we've ever rented -- you'd have to see the kitchen to believe it, and the games! DVDs! dog toys! Thank you for labeling everything so well -- makes it easy to check in, find things, and put everything back away at the end of our visit. We'd definitely recommend it to anyone.|
|Kristina T. (review from Vrbo)|
|Birthday Beach Getaway>|
|Beautiful home with all the amenities! So many games and fun things to do!|
|Jason (review from Airbnb)|
|What a treat to spend two nights in an awe-inspiring house! Everything we could want or need is readily available to enjoy cooking a meal, to play trivia with the fireplace going, to shucking oysters with a gorgeous sunset. We had plenty to do with three kiddos under 6. Comforts of home at its finest!|
|Kim (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby was an excellent host! We had such a great time and will definitely recommend it. The house is well equipped and had everything needed for a beach vacation (even clam guns!)|
|Yvonne (review from Airbnb)|
|What an excellent, incredible, fun, impeccable, marvelous, place! Any word to describe excellent, please insert here! We had a wonderful Stay. From the hot tub, to the comfort of the rooms, to the beautiful kitchen, the volleyball net, the game room, name it! So many games, activities, and fun things to do here! I love how close the beach is too! I highly recommend!!|
|Chris (review from Airbnb)|
|Amazing house in an excellent location, and Toby is a fantastic host. We'll be staying here again!|
|Meghan (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby's home is beautiful and in the most idyllic place. Comfortable and spacious, the home was incredibly well organized and easy to maintain. From the games, to the movies, to cooking in the kitchen, to those gorgeous beach walks; we all had a wonderful time connecting with friends. For two couples, and a family of 3, and two dogs, there was enough room for everyone to spread out. Would highly recommend, and will go back in the future!|
|Matt G. (review from Vrbo)|
|We really enjoyed our stay. Plenty of fun activities, games, short walk to beach. They've thought of everything with this rental.|
|Jason M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Well thought out amenities. We had three generations staying. Plenty of comfortable seating for the oldsters to sit a read and ping pong, pool, and arcade games to keep the teens amused. This is now our go to property at Long Beach.|
|Laura N. (review from Vrbo)|
|6 adults and 2 kiddos under five, plus two dogs. We had a BLAST. The house is perfect for large families, the kitchen was a dream, the dogs and kids spent hours playing in the volleyball court and the beach. The house has every single thing you can think of. The game room was fun! If you are looking for a great time, book this place! We will be back next year!|
|Truong (review from Airbnb)|
Beautiful place to stay and enjoy the beach. Read all the rules and instructions a few times before booking the house to avoid sending extra payments during the stay.
Thank you for replacing damaged items. Appreciated.
|Anita (review from Airbnb)|
|The home has absolutely everything you need! It is just a 10 min walk to the beach. Lovely.|
|Debbie O. (review from Vrbo)|
|I as well as the whole family, young and old alike had an amazing time. The house was beautiful and fully loaded with entertainment and top of the line amenities. The beds were top of the line as well as the appliances, they were loved by all. The family is already making plans to make this our destination on a yearly basis. Everyone in our group , even the two year old stayed entertained with the assortment of games and toys that were provided. I believe the owner thought of everything from comfort,location and entertainment options. I will definately recomend this vacation house to everyone I know. Thank you.|
|Ann M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great group stay>|
|We had two families with tweens and teens and really enjoyed our stay at the property. Between the beach access and all of the toys, there is plenty to do. We also enjoyed using the well equipped kitchen.|
|Riley H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Such a beautiful property just a short few minutes walk to the beach. There was something for everyone, we had ages 3-50 staying with us and everyone was entertained. The kitchen is fully stocked and easy to find our way around it. The owner was very response and helpful. Will book again!|
|Tara B. (review from Vrbo)|
|As many other reviewers and Toby shared, this home has nearly everything. The kitchen, game room, living room, board game wall, outdoor toys, etc. all allowed us to be thoroughly entertained on, what we learned, was the on record hottest weekend ever in Long Beach! The beds were comfortable, the space was great for a group of 6 adults and 3 children, and the kitchen and eating areas were a great size. My only complaint was I had intentionally searched for a home with AC and the listing shows AC but the AC is in the separate apartment for rent, not the main home, so that was pretty disappointing to learn upon moving in (and it being 80+ degrees in the house). Other than the AC though, we had a lovely time and would recommend others to stay as well.|
|Michelle (review from Airbnb)|
|Another Amazing Stay!!! This is our second trip to this gorgeous house. Again, a wonderful time spent with family enjoying the beautiful home and everything it has to offer. We spent hours on the volleyball court, playing games, taking walks to the beach, enjoying time with our old dog, all just perfect. Everything in the house is clean, thoroughly organized, extremely comfortable and packed with amenities and fun games and activities. Will definitely be back again!|
|Hadley R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Everything you need for a great getaway>|
|Our group loved the house, especially the kids. There is so much to do we hardly had to leave the property. Great location right on the beach. Toby was really helpful with our planning even as we had to reschedule our original dates due to COVID-19.|
|Marie (review from Airbnb)|
|What a place! This was by far the most comfortable house for my large family to stay in. Plenty of space for everyone to find a private spot to be alone and great for gathering together. The neighborhood was private and felt safe. Grandkids really enjoyed the cul-de-sac and large driveway to ride bikes when we weren't at the beach. Access to the beach is a relaxing walk through the grass. Literally, everything you needed to have a great vacation, fully stocked kitchen, massive collection of board and video games, movies, beach toys and a garage filled with excellent game room things to do. I would highly recommend staying here because you will be in vacation mode the second you walk through the door. Toby, thanks for the use of your place and the opportunity to make lasting family memories!|
|Raynette R. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great family rental>|
|The Seagrass house was wonderful from the well equipped kitchen, large dining table, board games, nice bed linens, organizational labels everywhere, deck areas, fireplaces and large game room! It was a wonderful stay for our annual summer family vacation.|
|Jinnell (review from Airbnb)|
|This house is amazing! Our family met up with kids to see their grandma and grandpa and had a great time. The game room with pool table and PacMan and ping pong and shuffleboard were super fun. The hot tub and beach volleyball were a blast. We had a short walk to the beach every day to build sand castles and the beach wagon and toys were just right for beach fun! The game wall is very amazing and our kids wanted to play everything in our short visit! Kitchen is equipped with so many appliances and devices- some I hadn’t even heard of! Very cozy and clean and great for big groups. Toby was very accommodating and worked with us to arrange this trip despite all of the setbacks with the COVID pandemic. We would definitely love to come back!|
|Wendy (review from Airbnb)|
|The home was in immaculate condition and communication flawless! If there were any option for more than 5 stars I'd choose it! :)|
|Catharine W. (review from Vrbo)|
|Amazing Beach House>|
|We came to spend a few days with our Washington family and cannot say enough about this house. One of our family members was a cancer survivor and was understandably hesitant about coming due to covid-19, but the house has the perfect set up for social distancing. Lots of room, great outdoor spaces, super fun game room and plenty of activities available for all ages. Very clean and beautiful house, carefully organized and well stocked, comfortable beds, every detail taken care of (even for the dog). Literally you do not need to bring anything but your clothes, food and drinks. Even a washer and dryer. Beach was just a short walk away. Toby was great and always quick to respond to my questions. Close to town but also secluded. Wish we could have stayed longer! Everyone had a blast!|
|Kari (review from Airbnb)|
|Our family enjoyed the game room emensly (we had a few shuffle board tournaments😁), ladder ball, pickle ball, hot tub, soaking tub with views of the beach, walks on the beach (which was a short distance from the house), fire on the beach, making meals in the very equipped kitchen and movies in the family room. We never wanted or needed to leave the house and kept busy with everything Toby's house had to offer!!|
|Caitie (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby’s beach house has absolutely everything for a fun trip to the beach! We would have to stay for a month to take advantage of all the activities the house is equip for, and we can’t wait to come back!|
|Tamara (review from Airbnb)|
|Highly recommend this home for large families! Beautifully appointed home with easy access to a beach. Loved the use of natural wood throughout and the incredible game room with ping pong, pac man, fussball, pool, shuffleboard and more! Everything was immaculate and stored in a labeled place - so well organized! My husband is a professional chef and he was super impressed with all the kitchen gadgets and high quality cookware. Truly comfortable beds with high quality bedding and fluffy duvets. Best bathrooms ever with HEATED floors :). Wish we never had to leave! We will definitely stay at Toby’s house again!|
|Jennifer F. (review from Vrbo)|
|Perfect in every way>|
|Everything in this home is very well thought out. The house is clean, spacious, and up to date. Toby communicates very well and responds quickly to any questions.|
|Michelle (review from Airbnb)|
|We had an unforgettable family vacation. The house is gorgeous and very well laid out, there is everything available you could ever want or need. Our family had such a great reunion, playing games, fishing and flying kites on the beach and of course great meals shared around the table together. The host was always available to quickly address any questions or troubleshooting and we had a great time.|
|Nick (review from Airbnb)|
|My friends, family and I had a fantastic stay at Toby's place. The house was gorgeous inside and out, and wonderfully well equipped. We loved the short walk to the beach, and the quiet, secluded nature of the place. For the 1-2 small issues that came up, Toby was super communicative and addressed them swiftly. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking to get away for a while!|
|Devan (review from Airbnb)|
|Amazing place to stay! Would highly recommended|
|Sheri M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Perfect house and location for a family getaway!|
|Heather (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby’s place was the perfect retreat for our family to gather for a long weekend. A few of our favorite things were the tubs on the porch, the game room, and how thoughtful Toby was with all of the extras that made the house above-and-beyond. We hope to stay here again on our next visit!|
|Ari K. (review from Vrbo)|
|Somehow even better than the pictures>|
|Good gravy, this was a fun house to stay at. It has everything. The garage is so much fun. The main area is spacious, bright and cozy. The bedrooms are large. Everything was delightful. We had a blast and hope very much to stay again.|
|Jacob K. (review from Vrbo)|
|Perfect House for Large Groups>|
|This property was great! Easily fits a large group with plenty of room for people to do their own thing, or all be together. The downstairs bedrooms are a bit tight with queen size bunk beds, but it’s an easy trade off when you can fit two couples in a single room.|
|Katie (review from Airbnb)|
|What a lovely and relaxing home! Our big family enjoyed the large hot tub and game room! We appreciated the high quality beds and bedding, as well. The kitchen is so well stocked and organized.|
|Jeremy (review from Airbnb)|
|This place is awesome. We came in the off season for our wedding anniversary and Toby was very responsive and flexible making our plans work. The house is amazing and the location is perfect. It feels very private and it’s a very short walk on a well groomed trail to the beach. You’re a few minutes outside of town but everything is close, and since it’s outside of town the beach feels more private and less busy. We would definitely stay here again the next time we come to Long Beach.|
|Lindsey B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great place for family to gather>|
|We enjoyed are stay here. Warm and cozy with the large fireplace. Plenty of games, crafts, activities, movies to keep everyone busy. Beds were comfy and warm, bathrooms have nice showers and heated floors. The hot tub is clean and the outdoor shower with hot water was so refreshing! The location is great and we had fun mushroom hunting, clamming, and horseback riding. Loved having the long dining room table for all to eat together and plenty of seating in great room for everyone to relax. Dog friendly and kid friendly makes family friendly!|
|Krislynn (review from Airbnb)|
|Beautiful, amazingly clean, and well organized home with tons of stuff to keep you busy if it’s raining at the beach. Booked this home for birthday getaway with friends and we all loved it. We’ll likely rent again!|
|Jordan T. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful House, Well organized!>|
We had a big group of old friends together (12 of us) for a long weekend. The house is in a great location in Long Beach.
Once you get into the house it is easy to settle in quickly and begin enjoying your vacation due to how well organized and intuitive everything is. Both the apartment and the house were great!
The kitchen is incredibly well stocked in terms of utensils and gadgets. Want to press potatoes into French fries? Grab the fry press! Want to make popsicles? Grab the popsicle molds! Want to bake cinnamon rolls from scratch? Pop out the kitchenaid mixer! We even found the clamming supplies in the garage which prompted us to get licenses and go get some razor clams to have with dinner!
Everything was put together thoughtfully and would be excellent for families and kids or a group of old buddies.
Definitely would stay here again!
|Cherie S. (review from Vrbo)|
|It's more than nice bedrooms and the amazingly equipped kitchen.....>|
Yes, you can read the reviews about the number of bedrooms and their comfy beds, the spa-like showers, the incredible game room, the amazingly well-equipped (and organized) kitchen, the board game wall and the warm fireplace. All of these are true.
We use VRBO often and are usually very fortunate to select places that suit our family. The homes work for what we need. Nothing spectacular, but functional. This was different.
This house is built and equipped with your family (and mine) in mind. It's fun. It's functional. It feels luxurious, but homey. It's got gathering spaces but also private areas. It's unbelievably clean, yet does not feel so pristine that you can't have the kids there.
Bottom line? It feels like this house/home was built and is rented with love. Sappy? Perhaps. But it's true. It's everything you never knew you always needed.
We'll be back.
|Florin (review from Airbnb)|
The house is outstanding, multiple private rooms, a whole game room, a huge kitchen to prepare meals and a central common area to relax. We got very lucky with the weather, knowing that is was early November and enjoyed very much all day outside in the sun.
the beach is a short walk away and our guests together with the dogs very enjoyed the break away from the city.
thanks Toby for the great hospitality.
|Jessica (review from Airbnb)|
|This place is amazing! The house is even better in person than the images (the apartment too!). In a prime location with thoughtful amenities - anything you need is available. Plus, Toby is very quick to respond and provided clear information. Everyone in our group was happy and comfortable, and we all truly felt like we were on vacation. Would highly recommend, and hoping we can stay again next year!|
|Kelly (review from Airbnb)|
|Amazing house, host was great to work with.|
|Lydia (review from Airbnb)|
|A++ outstanding airbnb. We never had any desire to leave the house. Communication with Toby was fast, and helpful. The house was hands down the best we have gone to. Everything was beautifully designed, and thoughtful. Marie Condo would be impressed with the organization. Toby’s place sparked much joy. Thank You for showing our group of friends a slice of luxury in Long Beach.|
|Teresa L. (review from Vrbo)|
|Couldn't ask for a better beach house>|
We've stayed at a lot of vacation rentals on the peninsula and this home is the most beautiful and well furnished and equipped by far. The owner has thought of absolutely everything you might need and want on a beach vacation. I can't stress this enough - the house has everything. I like to cook and typically bring my own knives and a couple pans that I prefer. I did the same this time because it was our first stay here, but now that I know how well equipped the kitchen is, there's no need to bring my own. And when I say equipped, I mean with nice quality Lodge cast iron, KitchenAid mixer, you name it. The kitchen is a delight to cook in.
Our family members ranged in age from 6 to 79 years, and there were activities for everyone. We really loved the game room which has a nice pool table that we all really enjoyed. There are also board games, puzzles, books, DVDs, and video games. The house is open enough to make some great memories with a large group of friends and family, but has enough little private places to get some space and quiet if you need to escape for a bit for some me-time.
The location is pretty much ideal - a beautiful quick walk on a path through dune grass to the beach, close to town (but not too close).
We loved how expansive the house feels. We loved the modern industrial mixed with the natural materials (stone and wood). The bedrooms and bathrooms feel like a modern luxury hotel. I found myself looking for tags on pillows so I can buy some for my own home.
The host, Toby, was super quick to respond to my questions, and was very gracious and easy going.
We loved our time here, it is pretty much the perfect beach house. Can't wait to stay again, maybe in the winter when it's stormy.

|5 Star wonderful vacation home!>|
|This has been the best get away for our family. Everything is in order, clean and very nice. I am a cook and I enjoy the kitchen and all of the appliances available. There are so many games to play for our adult kids too! Thank you Toby this will be a yearly vacation for us!! 😊� P.S. we enjoy the tubs outside!!!!!|
|Brenda C. (review from Vrbo)|
|The house was incredible! I’ve never seen a rental kitchen so well stocked. We played games every night using the extensive game collection. My two kids loved bathing in the outdoor bathtubs, while watching the sun set. I highly recommend this home.|

|Wonderful stay for large family of all ages>|
|Affordable pricing and high value vacation rental. This listing exceeds the description and photos. The interior design, comfort and organization are exceptional. Everything is labeled and great instructions. It was so enjoyable. Clean. Comfortable. But most of all FUN! Zero problems and no disappointments. Everyone was impressed. We wish to return again someday. Quite roomy and spacious. Highly recommend.|

|Amazing Beach House Vacation!>|
|We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Sea Grass home. The house is amazing and no detail is overlooked. Easy and quick walk to the beach with stunning views. Quiet and very private neighborhood. Super quick response time when we had questions during our stay. We highly recommend this home! You won’t be disappointed.|

|Wonderful home base for Long Beach family reunion!>|
|We rented Toby’s home for 4 nights, during our Long Beach family reunion, which was held just down the road at another beach house complex. The proximity to that site, and town, was perfect, and the house itself was amazingly well stocked and maintained. The level of attention to detail that Toby has put into everything is truly impressive, with everything labeled and assigned a place (for example, the remotes for the electronics all have a designated home, so they won’t be misplaced for the next guests, which is important given how many TVs and gaming systems are found through the house). With the board games, entertainment room, beach volleyball, big open living room and kitchen, there was never a dull moment! Everyone that stayed with us was so impressed with the accommodations. Just a note that the prices were higher than listed on VRBO, probably because it was peak season; it would be nice to have that range reflected on the website/VRBO app, to avoid surprises (including the upcharges for additional guests). Other than that, it was a perfect stay. Highly recommend!|
|Rodric P. (review from Vrbo)|
|Outstanding home with many extras!>|
|This is the second time we have rented this house and we were as pleased as ever. The house has practically everything you need other than bringing your own food - tons of board games, towels, beach towels & chairs, beach toys, pool, foosball, ping-pong, volley ball, etc. We really enjoyed our stay and the overall facilities. The house even has dog towels and bowls. The outside shower with warm water is great for cleaning up after the beach. The outside hose with warm water was great for rinsing off the dog. Tons of parking. There were 8 of us plus our black lab and we never felt cramped. Definitely will stay here again. Toby is great to work with if anything comes up. Would love to see a large hot tub added outside but that would just be extra frosting on the cake.|
|Liz R. (review from Vrbo)|
|This large yet cozy house was perfect for family members staying there. (We rented two other homes in the neighborhood.) It's well equipped in the kitchen for cooking for a group, the garage has a foos ball table that the kids loved and we held a wicked volleyball tournament. Thanks for the great set-up!|
|Angela S. (review from Vrbo)|
|This property was amazing. The amenities were too numerous to list. Everything is high end but still comfortable. Loved using the kitchen for meals, table for gathering and games, and numerous matches on the sand volleyball court. Owner is very attentive and responsive.|
|Carole (review from Airbnb)|
|This is a thoughtfully appointed and very comfortable house. It is great to have everything in the kitchen you possibly could need! Terrific for a family vacation.|
|Marie L. (review from Vrbo)|
|Perfect beach house>|
|We love this house! Stocked perfectly, great location, tons to do and quiet. Great location too!|
|Kara (review from Airbnb)|
|Beautiful location- beautiful house! Pictures don’t really do it justice- absolutely amazing space! All the added sand toys, beach wagon, coolers, chairs, hammocks, games ( oh my goodness- the board games!), movies, everything you could want or need. Kitchen was a cooks dream- everything is so organized and absolutely perfect! Love the outside tubs!|
|Marcy S. (review from Vrbo)|

|Phavy (review from Airbnb)|
What an amazing air bnb home! My family and I stayed for 3 nights. All of us had our own space and privacy but also spent a lot of time together in the communal spaces. The garage has a game room with a ping pong table, pool, & corn hole. The house has a large selection of board games and movies. There were also a lot of beach toys which made it great for the kids. Everything was labeled making it really easy to clean up. If you have multiple cooks in the kitchen, make sure you tell people to pay attention to where they grabbed from so you remember where to put it back. If you forget, no worries, everything is labeled! I’m in awe of how much time and effort was put into the organization in this house. Also, the two bathtubs on the balcony were genius and super fun for the family. We brought bath bombs and took baths together!
The house is walkable distance to the beach which is really nice and convenient. It was really great how the house was accommodating to dogs. There was everything we needed for our 3 dogs (dog bowls, beds, & towels)! Toby had very clear instructions for checking in and out. He was also very responsive to all my questions. He literally answered everything in under 15 mins whenever I sent a message! Overall my family and I had a great time. We would definitely come again!
|Erinn (review from Airbnb)|
|Wow! What a great place. It’s every bit as good as all the reviews led us to believe. Very well stocked, and very clean and comfy for everyone. Perfect amount of personal space and shared spaces for all of us to be together without being crowded. The game room was awesome for rainy days. Toby was quick to respond to communications and had everything really well organized with good instructions on how to use everything. Loved it - will definitely be back!|
|Nicolas M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Absolute Must for Families!>|
|If you are looking for security, comfort, loads of entertainment etc, this is the place for you! Even though we paid a little more because of Spring Break, it was worth every penny! Not having to worry about forgetting all the little things from lighters to dog bowls with constant trips to the store is worth staying at this place. Toby really went all out in planning the location of each item and being that everything is labeled makes it easy to explain to kids what goes back and where. If all his priorities are like this, we will for sure stay at them again! Toby needs to write a book about how to make vacation rentals profitable! He would make a killin’! A best seller! :-) We will be back!|
|Bridget F (review from Airbnb)|
|The reviews, house pictures, and description are all on point. Believe the hype! The location was perfect - we loved being able to pop over to Astoria / Warrenton for adventures after a nice morning walking the beach and lounging around the house. It was definitely our top rental beach rental home experience! We were pleasantly surprised by some bald eagles on the beach - definitely a new experience for us, and one we will never forget!|
|Ashley (review from Airbnb)|
|This beach house has everything you could possibly need with beach access, perfect! It's great for a large group and the game room is awesome, we will be coming back again next year for a 3rd time, love it!|
|Aaron T. (review from Vrbo)|
|Love this place and will be returning. Most comfortable and best outfitted vacation property we've ever stayed in! Thanks Toby!|
|Mark F. (review from Vrbo)|
|An amazing blend of luxury, design, and practicality. Loved staying here!>|
|This home is spacious yet cozy and will feel great for a romantic getaway or a family reunion. Every aspect of the home from the kitchen to the sheets and towels are chosen with care. I loved staying here. I got to experience the apartment above the game room. What a great space. And the game room is absolutely incredible. If you are looking for a great weekend in Long Beach, you won't do better than this home!|
|JP M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Best little apartment add-on!>|
|We stayed in the 3-bed apartment linked to the house. As with the main house, the craftsmanship, maintenance and conveniences are unparelleled. Outlets, the shower, the beds, the kitenette, everything was spot on. We enjoyed ourselves very much.|
|Jeremy P. (review from Vrbo)|
|The house was amazing: beautiful, spacious, clean, with a terrific rec room for the kids and more kitchen gadgets than I’ve ever seen in my life. We were totally comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.|
|Serena (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby's place is extremely clean and well-furnished. It is clear that a lot of thought went into creating a home that is perfect for a vacation. Toby was also quick to respond when I had questions. The house is beautiful and we will definitely stay there again.|
|Jennifer S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Clean, well-cared-for, beautiful>|
My family and I have been renting properties like this since 2000. We are used to bringing our own sharp knives, cookie sheets, pots, etc. This is the first time we were able to leave our drink dispensers and crockpots in the car and cut tomatoes with the knives in the kitchen. There was even a full set of bar ware in a cabinet. We were very impressed.
Our kids were impressed with the sheer number of arcade/computer games available.
Also, this place was well-stocked with linens, towels, cozy blankets, etc. I did have one question at the last minute from a request of my niece and the owner got back to me very quickly. I will definitely keep this in mind next time my family wants to go to the Washington coast.
|Charlie N. (review from Vrbo)|
|We really enjoyed our stay over the Christma Holiday! The house was fantastic! We will return in the future.|
|Steve (review from Airbnb)|
|Spectacular kitchen that even chefs dream about. Every board game I’ve ever heard of and movie I’ve ever seen were stocked in this house. Simply amazing.|
|matt r. (review from Vrbo)|
|AMAZING BEACH HOUSE!!!>|
|This is the perfect getaway beach house. The house has absolutely everything you need to enjoy yourself. A beautiful kitchen that has every amenity possible which opens up to the very large living room with a huge stone fireplace. The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautiful as well. Can't say enough about this house, 5+ Stars!!!|
|Jeanette T. (review from Vrbo)|
|Lovely Home; Great for All Ages>|
|We had a lovely weekend with two families, including 9 adults, 4 kids between the ages of 7-13, and 2 dogs. There was plenty of room for everyone to relax and lots to do both inside and outside of the house. The kitchen was stocked with appliances I haven't even seen before! Not to mention the 100's of movies in the house and the garage.|
|Joshua L. (review from Vrbo)|
|Cool and comfortable house, perfect for group of friends or family>|
|This house was set up perfectly to ensure our group always had something fun to do. The volleyball court is great, the game room has plenty of great games, and the house is filled with comfortable rooms and beds. The house is just a couple hundred feet from the beech and walking distance from the town. The town has all kinds of fun stuff from bars to arcades, carnival rides, and ice cream. We were a little late for the summer season, but I hope we can get back here again during the summer to see the town at its best.|
|Joshua L. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great for our family trip!>|
|Exceeded our expectations|
|Marie L. (review from Vrbo)|
|We have stayed at this house many many times, year round and it's just perfect. It is clean, organized, has a ton to do and a great location. It's the only place we will stay at the beach!|
|Lori (review from Airbnb)|
|This house is outstanding! It had everything we needed and more. Over the top organization and really comfortable.|
|Lisa W. (review from Vrbo)|
|This is our second time staying here. The first was during spring break and honestly staying over the summer was a totally different experience but no less amazing. Daily walks to the beach, nightly bonfires, walks in town and great sightseeing all so close by. The house itself is missing nothing! We never went out to eat since we enjoyed cooking in so much. Kids down time in the evening was spent playing board games, pool, ping pong and finished each night with a movie (vast collection of DVDs!). Can’t wait to go back and create even more memories!|
|Ann B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Perfect family vacation home!>|
There was something for everyone at Seagrass Home. The little kids had a great time at the beach and playing games at the house. The beach wagon made taking chairs & toys to the beach much easier! The big kids thoroughly enjoyed the game room. The kitchen was so well organized and equipped we made wonderful meals and awesome memories.
The house was super clean and comfortable. The outdoor shower made cleaning up from the beach easy. We can't wait to return! Thanks, Toby!
|Nancy J. (review from Vrbo)|
|Everything was clean and ready for our stay. There was no detail overlooked.>|
We had a grand time, fun for every age. There was constant activity in the garage; many games were used and all the other facilities. The location was perfect for going to the shore. It was easy getting to stores and all museums, gift stores & other interesting sites. We had a catered dinner which went beautifully due in part to the super organized kitchen. The servers from The Cove were very pleased. It is our hope to return to Seagrass again.
|Danielle T. (review from Vrbo)|
|The home is beautiful and loaded with just about anything you need. We had a great time there! The home is packed full of entertainment (indoors and out) and Long Beach is a great town to explore. Toby was very responsive to my inquiries and was very nice when making arrangements. I would highly recommend this place!|
|Joan (review from Airbnb)|
|If you're thinking about booking this place but aren't sure, just do it! It's fantastic--one of those places that really feels special for vacation. Toby keeps the place up meticulously--everything is organized, very clean, and super thoughtful, from plenty of towels (I think this may have been my first airbnb where we didn't feel short on towels after a few days!) to laundry detergent provided, to every kitchen amenity you could want--I'm not exaggerating. The best part (other than super close proximity to the beach and great views from the upstairs bedrooms) was that the house really felt like there was room for everybody. Not just beds (which, by the way, will leave your back feeling refreshed and rested--not your standard hotel mattress, there is no sagging at Toby's place!) but also the fact that there is enough seating for everybody at the kitchen table, there is enough room in the foyer for everybody to come in and take their shoes off and set down their bags, there is enough room on the couches for everyone to watch a movie together. We had six adults and four kids staying here and it never once felt crowded. There are places for kids to play without being underfoot, the laundry room is spacious enough that you can pile a couple of loads up, waiting to be thrown in. The place is attractive--beautiful, even, in a rustic way--but there aren't a lot of fragile nicknacks or lamps or glass on the wall art so I was never once nervous about my twin five-year-old boys breaking something. The entry and exit is with a code and is super slick--any of the six adults could get back into the house without worrying about "who has the key?" I honestly felt like Toby had stayed in many airbnbs before and knew exactly what it was like to be a guest and what we do and don't want. My family is already talking about when we can go back to Toby's place!|
|Ashlee O. (review from Vrbo)|
|Wow!!! Amazing house! This house was so relaxing to be in and was perfect for my dads surprise bday!>|
|This house was hands down phenomenal, spacious, impeccably clean and over the top organized! Our whole family was impressed and we felt right at home. This is a place we will be returning for years to come! Thank you for such a great experience!|
|JoDe B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Deluxe getaway home for family vacation - THANK YOU!>|
|We planned an 80th birthday for my mother and stayed 6 nights with my extended family. The owner made it a breeze to coordinate everything. He was extremely responsive with communications, and answered all questions in a timely manner. The house is gorgeous, beds comfortable, linens deluxe, and there was no amenity lacking. We enjoyed the game room, and set up tournament brackets with all my 70+ aunts and uncles. We rented the apartment for three nights, which made having extra guests for the birthday party easy. The beach access was close, and we enjoyed flying kites and even found a baby seal resting on the sand waiting for his mom to come back from hunting. It was a terrific location for making memories and I have no hesitation recommending this home to others for rentals. THANK YOU!|
|Bradley G. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful and relaxing>|
|My family and I enjoyed our time here. The place is as described and is beautiful. It was fun and relaxing and we enjoyed the garage full of activities (pool, foosball, ping pong) and the sand volleyball pit.|
|Miranda W. (review from Vrbo)|
|This house had every amenity you can imagine plus some. They have thought of almost everything. For families, they provide all the entertainment and accessories you will need. Quite impressive indeed.|
|Donna T. (review from Vrbo)|

|Great place for family gathering.|
|Petr M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Very nice and modern house with every detail there is.>|
|We enjoyed staying here. It's one of the best houses we have ever rented!!!|
|Rick (review from Airbnb)|
|This place is great! Likely the most thoroughly outfitted and organized rental property you will come across. The kitchen's collection of cookware, utensils, appliances, and dishes leaves you equipped for ANY meal. The home's library of movies and games (including video games) is absolutely impressive. The game room was also awesome and while the weather didn't permit us to recreate outside much, the supplies for that were there. We had our very curious 14 month old daughter with us and there was nearly nothing we had to put up/away to "baby proof" the place upon arrival. We did bring a baby gate for the bottom of the stairs which was helpful, but pretty much everything else (high chair, pack n play, toys, etc.) was already there. Beyond all that the home is really comfortable and Toby was communicative and accommodating. Overall a great experience that our group would definitely be interested in repeating.|
|darcih H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great place for vacation rain or shine!>|
|Our recent stay your Sea Grass house was wonderful! The house was perfect for our vacation with extended family. It had everything and then some. It was clean and very organized. The kitchen is a dream and stocked with everything imaginable. We loved trying out the waffle bowl maker (didn't even know such a thing existed), hot dog toaster, and many other gadgets. The game room in the garage was a huge hit with both the kids and adults, especially on rainy days. On the sunny days we took advantage of all the beach accessories, the wagon, and walked down to the beach. Toby is very pleasant to work with and works very hard to make it a good and smooth experience. Thank you for allowing us to use your property. I would definitely stay here again!|
|Marie L. (review from Vrbo)|
|Our favorite Beach House>|
|It's the only place we will ever stay on the Oregon/Washington coast! We love Long Beach, but this house makes it perfect. It is clean, organized, supplied, lots to do and private. We all love it!!!|
|Elise (review from Airbnb)|
|This is by far the nicest vacation rental I've ever stayed in! Toby thought of everything, from a mango peeler and panini maker, to little stools in the bathrooms for toddlers who may need a boost! Everything is labeled, making it easy to put things back in their place. The kitchen is beautiful and perfect for cooking big meals for a group! We most enjoyed chatting and drinking wine in the living room in front of the huge gas fireplace while it hailed outside. :) The home is not directly on the beach and there are no views of the ocean from the main living space unfortunately, but it's just a little walk on a grassy path to the beach, not bad at all. And there ARE views from the two upstairs suites. The game room is a ton of fun! Oh and the insane amount of board games!? So cool. Overall, you can't go wrong with this place. Truly a luxurious stay!|
|Kristi (review from Airbnb)|
We used to stay at a hotel when we visited Long Beach. But now, as long as Toby will have us, we'll be staying at his place when we vacation. Our group was constantly saying, "Look what I found!" or "This is awesome" as we explored this vacation getaway. Truly peaceful, clean, and fun.
If you're interested in a few examples, there are TWO master suites, each with their own hot tub overlooking the ocean! Second, every one of the myriad amenities has a label and a place, making it a breeze to stay organized and stress-free on vacation. Lastly, communication was fast and clear. We had a blast!
|Colin And Emily (review from Airbnb)|
|Great beach side location. House is stocked with more cooking gadgets than you can use in a weekend!|
|Charlene (review from Airbnb)|
|This house is very well stocked with games, TV's, puzzles, etc. to accommodate family members of all ages. The heated game room is awesome with a pool table, ping pong, corn hole, pop a shot, foos ball and a large TV. The house is very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with whatever you might need to prepare meals for your group. We really enjoyed this house and highly recommend it without reservation.|
|Jonathan M. (review from Vrbo)|
|The house was amazing!>|
|The house was clean, spacious and accomodating. All of the finishes, accessories and details were above-average quality. For a rental vacation home I was very impressed! So much thought went into making the place as comfortable as possible. We loved our time there.|
|Shannon E. (review from Vrbo)|

|Thoroughly enjoyable. Every detail was thought of! A big hit for a wide range of ages and stages.|
|Anonymous (review from Vrbo)|
|This home (and the attached apt and add'l property) was the perfect location for our leadership retreat. It has every amenity you can imagine - and a fully stocked kitchen I'm still dreaming about. The home is just a short walk to the beach. I only wish we'd had more time to enjoy everything this home has to offer.|
|Mark F. (review from Vrbo)|
|Everything you need and want to enjoy an amazing trip to the beach>|
|This home is full of luxurious features that keep you saying, "Wow, look at this!" The kitchen is incredibly functional and fun with every gadget and appliance imaginable. Beds are so comfortable. I stayed in the apartment which was such a cool addition to the home. And the game room has enough stuff to stay entertained for hours. Short walk to the beach is wonderful as well.|
|ALISON P. (review from Vrbo)|
|The Sea Grass house is beyond AMAZING! Our group of 8 adults rented the house over a long weekend and loved it!! Enough so, that we reserved it for the following year already! This property has every possible thing you could want in a rental home.|
|Lisa W. (review from Vrbo)|
|Long weekend before school started back up and had an amazing time! Long walks on the beach during the day, gourmet meals in a kitchen that has EVERYTHING you could possible need, great family time playing board games (I dare you to try and find a board game NOT here), fun family competition in the game room playing basketball, pool and ping pong (there is also a fooseball table) while we watched the wildcard playoff games on the huge tv and ended each night with a movie (hundreds to choose from) and popcorn. Before we even left we were planning our next trip at this fantastic house! I won't even get in to how fabulous the house itself is - let's just say pictures don't even do it justice.|
|Joy M. (review from Vrbo)|
This home was beautiful! I rented it December 1st -5th with my Family of 12. There was plenty of room to spare even with a lab dog. It is designed for entertainment and for families of all ages as well as pets.
I also rented the Apartment abouve the game room and my 2 oldest grand kids loved it. "If you couldnt find someone they were in the game room, which was Amazing! The Kitchen has every appliance you could imagine, even a drawer fullof cookie cutters, so of course we had to make Christmas Cookies! The 2 soaking tubs off the Masters were awesome! "I could go on and on about this place."
Toby has really spent the time on organization as well as attention to detail of what is needed in a vacation home. He has went above and beyond to make sure his house guest are comfortable and have everything they need.
Thank you again Toby for letting my family have a great time at the beach! We will be back!
|HEATHER P. (review from Vrbo)|
|We enjoyed our stay here and hope to return. This beach house exceeded all expectations.|
|Jennifer (review from Airbnb)|
|Sea Grass is a comfortable, modern beach home with all the amenities. The kitchen was stocked with every conceivable cooking tool. The beds were comfortable and the game room a blast. The photos absolutely accurate. Toby is a great host - both responsive and hands-off. We moved in and moved out without any problem. The beach was easily accessible and beautiful. We had a fantastic stay and look forward to a repeat.|
|Diane H. (review from Vrbo)|

|Great Long Weekend Getaway>|
House was a lot of fun and great location for an extended weekend getaway. Plenty of room to relax and just a short walk to the beach. The game room was a hit and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook plenty of meals in.
This our 2nd time visiting a property by this owner and we’ll certainly be back again.
|Nicholas (review from Airbnb)|
House was great. Toby was very easy to deal with. Very stormy when we were there and the house had everything to keep us busy.
Will definitely return.

|Magnificent Estate by the Sea>|
|What a wonderful property! Everything is meticulously organized and it is located in a quiet, private cul de sac with all the amenities you could dream of. It is so relaxing here and there is literally something for everyone to enjoy. The property manager was very helpful as the 2nd day there there was a low battery notice beep coming from a smoke detector on one of the high, vaulted ceilings. He sent a handyman to repair it quickly and efficiently. The expansive coastline is just a short stroll through a lovely beach path bordered by sea grass. This stunning property had everyone in our group wishing they lived there full time! Haha. We enjoyed our time here immensely and will definitely be back !!|
|Michelle & Dan H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful, orginized home>|
|Fourteen members of my family gathered at Toby's place in September to remember my brother that passed away earlier in the summer. The home was immediately welcoming and comfortable and had everything we could have needed X10. The home is meticulously organized (and labeled), which made things generally easy to find and importantly easy to put back where they belong. Most importantly, I never worried about anything house related while we were there. Thank you for letting us use your home, it was a beautiful time of healing for my family.|
|Michael H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Perfect family getaway!!!!>|
|This was our 2nd stay at Toby's Long Beach home and it was just as fantastic as the first time. We had 4 adults and 5 kids and there was plenty of room for all and with the newly added game room in the garage, complete with pool table, foosball table, TV, movies and games, there was plenty to do for all. House is always spotless when we arrive and the kitchen overly stocked with everything you can possibly imagine (including a waffle bowl maker which the kids loved). We will definitely be back soon and we would highly recommend this home to any family.|
|Deanne C. (review from Vrbo)|
|We stayed in this beautiful home a short walk to the beach this last summer for a family reunion. The home was organized to a "T", everything was available for a wonderful relaxing vacation that could be imagined. Just to mention a few items, complete game room, beach towels and toys, games galore, a kitchen stocked to please a chef, and lots of movies to enjoy in the evenings. We have another family reunion in two years, we only hope the home is still in the rental market to book again. Thank you Toby, for such a wonderful time in your home.|
|Cristen M. (review from Vrbo)|
|This beautiful home comfortably accommodated all 14 of us. I would say it exceeded our expectations>|
|The owner spared no expense when designing this home. It is beautiful and well equipped to accommodate and entertain. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need except a second refrigerator. We had plenty of room for our boats and cars. The fish cleaning station was very handy. Everyone in our group commented on how comfortable the beds and pillows were. What a treat after long days of fishing!|
|Peter M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Second Time 👍>|
|We stayed at this house for the second year in a row. It was even better the second time. There were 7 of us and 2 dogs. The house was great for this many people. We had fun playing several of the board games as well as pool, ping pong, corn hole, and foosball. We made many lasting memories. We highly recommend this house.|
|Rodric P. (review from Vrbo)|
|Excellent! One of the very best properties we have rented!>|
|This is an outstanding property for a large group. We had 8 adults and never felt cramped. The house is meticulously maintained and everything is in excellent shape. The game room is fantastic along with the sand volleyball court. The walk to the beach is very pleasant. The rooms are all well equipped with very comfortable beds. All the bathrooms are outstanding with great showers! We loved the fact that the home had two large water heaters so you could basically take as long as shower as you wanted without running out of hot water. The location was very quiet and peaceful. The house had many reclining lounge chairs and a great hammock. The outside shower was perfect for getting cleaned up after visiting the beach or playing on the sand volleyball court. I personally loved how well everything was labeled and clear directions were given on how to use all the toys (tv, blue ray, satellite dish). The advertisement is very accurate for this house. Being able to bring our dog just added to the value of this rental. We will definitely be rented this home again next summer.....if it is available. We have rented many homes over the years and this is definitely the top 1 or 2 of the homes we have stayed at.|

|Great place...everything is top of the line!>|
|We had a fantastic trip and enjoyed all of the amenities this house provided. Easy walk to the beach, loved the game room and volleyball court. Couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our family get together.|
|Jinnie (review from Airbnb)|
Toby's place was wonderful on so many levels! There was tons of things to do at the house (board games, volleyball, outdoor tubs, cooking) and a great beach just a short walk away. Toby so kindly even stocked a cart with some firewood so that we could go down to the beach and have a campfire and watch the sun set and the stars come out (my favorite part of the trip next to the awesome gourmet kitchen).
If that wasn’t enough, the house was so well stocked (not an empty cupboard) with everything you could possibly need and more! Toby was a gracious and accommodating host and worked with all our needs along the way. Definitely going to book with him again!
|Mark (review from Airbnb)|
|Excellent beach house with easy access to the beach. Great location and lots of fun stuff at the house for the kids. We will be back!|
|Hollie M. (review from Vrbo)|
We have rented vacation properties through VRBO for our annual extended family vacation for many years, but this home is, by far, the best experience we have ever had. The owner has thought of absolutely everything you need from beach towels to dog beds to one of the very best equipped kitchens we have ever seen. Not only is the house well equipped and furnished, everything is labeled so as to make putting things back where they belong so much easier than trying to remember where you got that mixing bowl.
Long Beach on the Fourth of July was fun for every member of our family. The guys went fishing (you can walk to the beach and surf fish or charter a boat), the kids played in the sand, we went horse back riding, and we had a grand old celebration and bbq on the beach on the Fourth. All-in-all a memorable vacation.
Toby was great to work with and very responsive to any questions we had. I highly recommend this property.
|Katie M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Outstanding! Best weekend getaway in ages!!>|
Thank you for an absolutely spectacular stay! My sons and I loved every minute of our time there - from sunny sandplay on the beach to late night family board games. The home was gorgeous, immaculately clean, modern yet comfortable and had everything we could ask for! We live only a couple hours away and canNOT wait to return soon!
|vicki g. (review from Vrbo)|
|The owner has supplied everything you will need from the Kitchen to little things like every game know to man. Great access to beach. We had a problem with the TV and the owner was back to us in 5 minutes with the solution. Great response. Would highly recommend.|

|North Coast Woodland Pampering>|
|The house's comforts, amenities, supplies and equipment were precisely as described. It was a tiny bit farther from the beach than I had envisioned ...but that's my overactive imagination. Most of our group were single sleepers but there were still enough double and queen beds; and the owner opened the apartment for the last two nights to accommodate two latecomers. We had a little rain but mostly glorious beach weather. On day two, a bulldozer started ripping the beach path and view corridor about 50 ft. from the back door. Our call to the home owner shocked him but restored peace and quiet soon enough. We had such a lovely time together, we never got to play pool, ping pong or foosball.|
|Greg M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Amazing property. Thank you.|
|Jenn (review from Airbnb)|
My family of seven had the BEST time at Toby's place! I've rented a number of dreamy AirBnb homes and this property is one of my favorites.
A few notable call outs:
- House: Layout of house was designed for luxury and comfort. Four bedrooms are spaced out throughout the house for privacy; two bedrooms upstairs are spacious with en suite bathrooms. I was most impressed with how well stocked the house is with games and kitchen supplies / utensils.
- Communication: Toby was prompt and thorough in responding to all my questions.
|Tammy C. (review from Vrbo)|
|This is by far the best VRBO rental we have stayed at in our ten years of experience. It is stocked beyond expectations and extremely clean. The game room is fabulous! We will definitely be back!|
|Teri M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful home that has everything you could want and more. The kitchen is stocked with every possible thing you could ever need and then some. Games and puzzles galore for both kids and adults. Bathrooms are amazing and the beds were super comfortable. Short, easy walk to the beach. Owner was wonderful to work with. Would definitely recommend this house and we will surely be returning next year.|
|Loren S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great place to escape and have fun>|
What a great property! Clean, up to date everything and spacious. Kitchen was perfect for prepping large foodie meals for our 3 families. Amazing selection of utensils, pots and pans as well as baking gear. Bathrooms big, clean and spa like (loved our shower!). Tons of things to do in the house, at the beach or nearby for both kids and adults.
Owner is super responsive to requests, questions and made sure we had a great experience. Will definitely come back.

|2017 clam dig>|
|We had a great time at Toby's Home it had everything you could possibly want. very clean, lots of games and not enough time to play with all of them. will be back and checking out his other home to. the only down side was the garbage was about 1/3 full when we showed up and staying there for 4 nites the garbage over flowed.|
|Jason E. (review from Vrbo)|
|We use VRBO a lot. This house was set up with everything. My kids loved it. The way everything was labeled you found everything you needed without trying. Walk to the beach wasn't bad. Definitely the best house I have stayed in out of all of the VRBO'S I have used in the past.|
|Marie L. (review from Vrbo)|
|Perfect family beach vacation home>|
|The pictures do not do this house justice! It is clean, supplied with everything you can imagine, private, and a beautiful short walk to the beach (which is also very private). On a rainy day there is plenty to do, with the garage filled with a pool table, ping pong table, foosball table, and huge tv, as well as a wall full of board games to play. It is not easy to find a home that allows dogs- not only does this house allow them but provides several dog beds, bowls and even toys! They provide lots of outdoor activities as well, complete with a volleyball net. I honestly cannot think of anything this house is missing, or anything else that could make it better. It is the only house we will ever stay at on the Oregon/Washington coast.|
|Janet M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Wonderful stay in every way.>|
|Absolute beautiful home with everything you could possibly need or want plus things you didn't even know you needed! The kitchen and bathrooms are spotless and incredibly well designed; beds are comfortable; plenty of everything. Game room and beach chairs and toys so appreciated. Thank you for a lovely stay. We rent frequently and this one is top favorite so far.|
|Andrew (review from Airbnb)|
|We had a reunion of friends for the weekend and this space was amazing. The game room was great. The place is well stocked. Definitely coming back.|
|Billy C. (review from Vrbo)|
|Easy Breezy Stay>|
I booked this property for a group of 12 from Feb 24-26th. Wow, couldn't have been any easier. I had lots of questions even before booking, and Toby was so quick to respond both over the phone and via email. The home is set up with everything imaginable from all the kitchen appliances, you'll ever need, 100s of dvds, very high speed internet, cable, game room, plenty of towels, heavenly beds, and everything labeled/with instructions.
I guarantee that there aren't many other homes out there with a homeowner that pays such attention to detail. Also, a home that is equipped with anything and everything to make one's stay as easy and comfortable as possible. I'd be happy to book again with Toby and to even check out the other homes he owns in the area.
|steve e. (review from Vrbo)|
This property is fabulous!
Everything is there and it all works.
The Game Room is GREAT!!!!
The 4 bedrooms are over the top!
Clean, highly organized, easy to move into and make your own.
We will be back and back!

|Mitch G. (review from Vrbo)|
|Rainy and snowy weekend, but the house was great.>|
|Our group had a great time for Super Bowl weekend. The house was great and everything was as described. Check in was easy. The house was clean and comfortable. No issues and if not for the weather the weekend would have been perfect.|
|Andrew K. (review from Vrbo)|
|Awesome place for large group!>|
This place was exactly what we hoped for when we booked it. Nice big house with a ton of added features.
We rented the place for a New Years getaway for 5 couples. It was perfect for that. The beach is a beautiful 4 minute walk away but the house is also close to town.
The house itself has everything you would ever need. The heated floors and the showers were some of our favorites. The kitchen has everything you would need! The beds are very comfortable and so is all the furniture. The game room was amazing, and if you like to play board games they have way more than we could count!
The property owner is very easy to work with and very helpful with any questions.
We loved our stay and would definitely recommend it. We plan on going back in the future.
|Denis (review from Airbnb)|
|The place looks great when first arriving and when you take the tour. We loved the high ceilings and how well organized everything was. Toby must have spent days going through and labeling every single drawer, cabinet, board game, and just about everything else so you know exactly where things are. The place is a brisk walk to the beach and although we didn't get to enjoy it the volleyball court there must be great during the summer. Overall we had a great time and were already talking about trying to go back during the summer to better enjoy some of the amenities.|
|Jason R. (review from Vrbo)|
|One of the best rental properties we have rented!!!>|
It is hard to put into words who amazing this property is. When you say that they have thought of EVERYTHING it just does not do justice. I rented this house for my whole family to come out for Thanksgiving weekend. As expected the weather was pretty rainy so there was lots of indoors time.
Let's start with the kitchen. Being that we had to cook a huge thanksgiving dinner we needed a large well equipped kitchen so we didn't have to haul everything out. This kitchen literally has every single thing you need plus some. It worked out great to cook an amazing dinner and plenty of room for us all to enjoy dinner. We also really enjoyed the 70" TV to watch ch all the NFL games while preparing and eating dinner.
Speaking of TV. There are tons of them. Two 70" and then a TV in every single bedroom. The bedrooms are fantastic. The beds are extremely comfortable and the sheets and blankets are top of the line. The bathrooms are world class with huge walk in showers and the heated tile floors are what you find in 5 star hotels. The games and Game consuls on each TV are better selection than a rental store.
The Game Room with Pool, Ping Pong and giant TV were the hit with the kids and adults while it rained.
During breaks we did find time to enjoy the close walk down to the beach.
The best review I can give is that we are already planning our return visit for summer and rebooking for Thanksgiving next year.
|Christopher (review from Airbnb)|
The house is certainly well stocked with games and amenities. Clean, well organized and spacious. Comfortable beds, comfortable couches, multiple bathrooms and showers. Large, well stocked kitchen. Toby has obviously gone to great effort to make staying at this house an easy, enjoyable experience. The beach is a short walk from the front door.
I would absolutely recommend this house for a stay at the beach.
|Sandra V. (review from Vrbo)|
|Weekend of Oct 14 through Oct 17, 2016>|
Beautiful home, so many nice touches, anything you can imagine in the kitchen is there! The beds are probably the best we have slept in for a long time! We were there on a weekend which was supposed to be one of the worst storms in 50 years and even though we heard a lot of creeping noises, everything held up really well. Very clean, so many nice amenities.
Thank you so much!
Want to mention a couple of minor issues that need attention:
No wine opener (as marked in drawer) in main house.
Bathroom, main floor, pocket door mechanism is broken.
Jet tub closest to ocean side, we could not get jets to work, did not try other tub.
Thank you for your input. As soon as I receive word of any issue that needs attention, I call a contractor to address it. I'm happy to hear that enjoyed your stay and this house. Thank you for your business.
|Michelle (review from Airbnb)|
|We had a wonderful time at the A-frame beach house. It had everything promised, and extras! Love the open feeling of the kitchen and living room. Very warm and friendly. We will definitely return when weather is a little better.|
|BRAD D. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful new home in private area.>|
|House and furnishings are top of the line throughout. Fully furnished, didn't need to bring a thing. Owner very easy to work with. Used it for family get away including grand kids and everyone had a blast. Looking forward to next time.|
|Jay G. (review from Vrbo)|
|The place is in perfect order>|
Great house with great amenities and a superb stocked kitchen. Very close to the beach and a huge game room.
The sleeping is odd with most rooms haveing double queen bunk beds. It is actually hard to sleep a lot of people with the bed arrangement.
|Matt H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Simply the best....>|
Very well appointed home. All you need to take is your personal items.
One of the top 3 homes at long beach, Wa we have stayed .
Can't wait to stay again during our next trip to the coast.
|Peter M. (review from Vrbo)|
|Everything and More>|
|We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. It was everything that was promised in the description and more. The owner wasted no expense to create an oasis at Long Beach. When we arrived we kept finding little surprises and things that the owner thought of to make our stay that much better. We were not disappointed. In fact we can't wait to go back and create more memories.|
|Curtis F. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great accommodations, great weather!>|
|This vacation home is extremely well appointed in every way - kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, recreation room. One addition would be helpful: some coat hooks or a rack to hang up jackets inside the main door. This is my only critique. The owner is particularly accommodating and responsive to every situation!|
|Jill d. (review from Vrbo)|
|Perfect Beach House>|
|After 30 some years of visiting the Washington and Oregon coasts, we found the perfect beach house. Beautiful, newer home is well-designed and thoughtfully appointed. No detail is overlooked. A short walk to the beach, close to town yet secluded enough to be peaceful. Our group of 6 adults and two children had plenty of room to spread out, and plenty of activities to do together. The game room with pool table, ping pong and foos ball was a hit, and the huge assortment of games and puzzles was great. Everything you need for the beach (chairs, towels, toys, cart) is available. Beach time included walks, kite flying, and bonfires. The kitchen is a dream and has every appliance and utensil you need. The bathrooms are similar to an upscale resort. The owner is professional and helpful and quick to respond to questions. I can' t really say enough about this property and are sure we will return. Favorite restaurants in the area include Nanci and Jimella's, Lost Roo, The Depot, Pickled Fish, and the Crab Pot (where there is also a fish market).|
|Carol D. (review from Vrbo)|
|What a great place!>|
|We had the best time. This home offers everything you could ever want in a vacation home. Fabulous!!!!|
|Lex (review from Airbnb)|
Wow, wow, wow! This house is THE vacation get away for large groups! It is honestly the best stocked rental I have ever stayed in, complete with a chef's kitchen (Waffle maker, Margaritaville, Kitchen Aid mixer included), game room, beach toys, entertainment, and more. Just bring food and guests!
Thanks Toby for a great stay! The 30th birthday party was a huge success.
|Ellie S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Great vacation experience>|
|When you open the door of the house and are greeted with beautiful wood on ceiling, walls and floor it just makes you smile. Straight ahead is a wall full of shelves with games and puzzles. The smile grows wider. You absolutely laugh out loud when you check out the kitchen. Its the closest to cooking in a kitchen playland. It is phenomenal. If you can't find a movie you like, you don't like movies. There are hundreds to choose from. The game room is huge and wonderful for kids of all ages, including grandparents. The upstairs bedrooms are exceptionally nice but I would say the bunk queen sized beds are a little awkward. Provides plenty of sleeping spaces though. The bathrooms are roomy and luxurious. Laundry facilities state of the art. It is a vacation home you would easily recommend to friends. You honestly have to bring nothing but food & clothes. And Toby was available for answering questions very quickly. The beach is a close walk or drive. There is a wide variety of restaurants to choose from close by. It was our first trip to Long Beach but it will not be the last. Thanks, Toby, for a great vacation experience.|
|Chris C. (review from Vrbo)|
|What more can you ask for?>|
It is difficult for me to imagine any reasonable way that this vacation home experience could be improved upon. This brand new home was beautiful inside and out. It was stocked with just about every item imaginable (especially the kitchen) and a few that you never knew existed.
The location is ideal, private but with close proximity to both the beach and the downtown area. The owner was vigilant in his efforts to make sure that every aspect of stay was to our satisfaction. He was pleasant to deal with and easily accessible. Needless to say, we very much enjoyed our time in Long Beach in large part to these comfortable accommodations. We look forward to returning soon.

|Gorgeous Home...Fantasitic Location>|
|We had the most memorable family vacation over the 4th of July! Thank you Toby for making your home available for us. Every amenity in a kitchen you could dream of. The 4 bedrooms, 3 of which have sliding doors to decks, slept 3 families comfortably. Loved the jacuzzis on the deck outside the 2 master bedrooms...quite the bonus! Never will you find such a beautiful home so well stocked to keep kids of all ages (including the kid in all of us grown ups) so busy. So many hours of fun were spent in the game room and in the house playing just a few of the board games and Xbox competition games that are there for the using. We will definitely be back!|
|Heather S. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful home close to the beach great for people with children!>|
|We stayed at this beautiful home June 17th. We had 4 adults and 5 kids. This was a great place for us to relax and the kids to have a great time. Bring your kids bikes! There is a big area for the kids to ride safely. Short walk to the beach. They provide firewood and a buggy to tote it down to the beach! Overall just an absolutely great place to stay!|
|Jen P. (review from Vrbo)|
|Don't hesitate to book this vacation home!!>|
|I've rented some lovely vacation homes in the past, but this house puts them all to shame! Trust me when I say all you'll need to bring to this gorgeous place is your food and clothes. Seriously. The gourmet kitchen has everything you could possibly imagine. Want to make waffle bowls for ice cream? Check. Margarita maker? Check. Bake some cookies? Check. We cooked and enjoyed wonderful family dinners at the large log dining table. The spacious and airy great room was perfect for groups to hang out and visit, but still felt cozy. Slept well in the comfy beds. The game room is fantastic for young and old. Your fur babies are not forgotten either - beds, bowls and toys await for dogs! You'll love the short walk to the beach - and it felt like it was your own private beach too! Every detail of how to make your stay perfect is thought of in this house. You will not be disappointed - and we plan to stay again. So stop reading reviews and book this place! You'll be so glad you did!|

|Show up. Bring food. This home has everything else covered.>|
Simply put, this home is amazing. We rented the home for a family weekend as a memorial for my mother. We had people ages 2-78 in attendance and no one could say anything but how beautiful, inviting and well accommodated it was. Toby has created a home that is immaculately crafted where no detail is overlooked. The surrounding community is small and access to the beach and to town are very easy.
I was a little worried because my husband and I were flying in from out of town with our three kids so we weren't able to bring the usual thing we'd pack for a beach trip. My worries were completely unfounded. There was so much to do the televisions was rarely ever turned on. Our kids could have spent weeks going through the games and puzzles provided and the labeling system made it easy for even our kids to put them back in order. We were also surprised to find several sand toys, beach balls, towels and even a beach bag that made our trips to the water hassle free.
The kitchen was stocked with any kind of dish, utensil or small appliance you could need. No really, my aunt made Belgium waffles for the family and my husband kept asking why someone would need a hot dog toaster! Labels all over the kitchen made it easy for everyone to find things or put them back without hassle.
I was lucky to meet Toby during our stay. I got to thank him for providing such a beautiful and amazing home. As particular and detail oriented as my mother was she would have loved it completely. I can't wait to go back.
|Leslie B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Beautiful Sea Grass Experience>|
Toby Friesen has created the perfect vacation home. Not one detail has been over looked. From the comfortable beds, to the custom pool table. This house has everything you need for an awesome beach experience.
Our family had a three night stay in this beautiful house, and wanted for nothing. We would have to stay for over a year to play all the games Toby has provided. The kitchen will meet the needs of any gourmet chef, with more gadgets than I have at home. We even had the correct glasses for our micro brew. Toby made the furry members our family happy with dog beds and toys. And the house is close enough to town, but not too close. The beach is just a short walk over the dune.
This house is great for family, friends , or a retreat setting, with plenty of room to spread out. You will not be disappointed. I can't wait to stay to stay again.
Happy guest , Leslie Birkenhead
|cheryl p. (review from Vrbo)|
|A beautiful place to stay, play and enjoy>|
I would recommend this as a place to be for a wonderful vacation. It has everything you need to have a wonderful stay. Only thing you need to pack is clothes and food! We had so much fun in the 'Man Cave' which is the garage/game room. Beautiful pool table. Had fun playing ping pong and foosball also. We made good use of all game tables. Didn't get a chance to try out the sand volley ball on the side of the house...next time.
Great place for children also. It was well stocked with tons of crafts and things for the kids to do. Even had toys and beds for your family pet!
It is a pleasant walk to the beach. Gives you a chance to check out nature, listen to the roar of the waves and smell the ocean air. We watched several sunsets on the beach and a couple from the upper deck of the house. So peaceful and relaxing.
This home has it all to make your stay fun, pampered and relaxing. Love the heated bathroom floors! We will be back again.
|Michael H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Perfect place for family and friends>|
|My wife and I had our friends out from Minnesota and Toby's home was nothing short of PERFECT! We had 4 kids and between the hundreds of board games, video games and the beach there was never a dull moment. This home is fantastic for those that are looking for a getaway place that literally has it all. We were amazed by the detailed labeling of everything throughout the house and especially the kitchen. You really do not need to bring a thing other than food/beverage. Toby even had a wine cooler already on and ready to go so our Pinot's could stay nice and chilled. We will definitely be back for another weekend getaway.|
|Sherry P. (review from Vrbo)|
|Absolutely wonderful! Dream vacation!>|
|My husband and I rented Seagrass for five days to celebrate my birthday, we were joined on the weekend by our daughters, their husbands/boyfriend and our Grandsons. Everyone agreed the house was perfect. Every attention to detail was checked! The kitchen is extremely equipped and organized making food prep fun! The bathrooms are beautiful and bedrooms nice too! The two master suites were lovely, including the tubs on the deck with ocean view. The boys loved the games and tech equipment! Wish the beach was closer but due to the dunes the 5 min walk was fine and very pretty. We didn't want to leave! Toby was very easy to work with and very kind! I recommend this home 150%! And hope to come back, even our dog was spoiled there!|
|Jackie A. (review from Vrbo)|
It was a most beautiful house. EVERYTHING you need plus more!!
Lots of spacious room, games and movies galore.
We definitely would stay there again and highly recommend it for your family!
|Pam (review from Airbnb)|
|What a great house and host. This was the ideal place for our whole family (9 adults & 1 handicapped teenager) for the weekend. Everything you could want and then a lot more was ready for us to use. We played games stored in boxes and digital games on the XBox. The kitchen was spacious and well-equipped. Best of all -- the place was spotlessly clean! We loved it!|
|Susan B. (review from Vrbo)|
|Location good, Service a little short>|
The house is nice but smaller than it looked in the pictures. In emails, owner kept reminding us that the cleaning deposit only covers very basic cleaning items. The outdoor grill hand not been cleaned when we got there and the gate at the entrance road did not work properly and we had to call the owner to open the gate for us--his comment "Yeah, some people can never make that gate work". Once we had two cars that were stuck at the gate for about 30 minutes. The owner is very obsessed with neatness i.e., games on shelf were filed alphabetically as well as numerically within each letter group with a sign to be sure they were replaced in EXACT order.
When you have large groups check in and out of your house all year, you might be able to imagine what a task it is to keep a fully stocked home in good working condition. The system I have come up with provides my guests with a clean, organized home that is user friendly. In 2 years I have had 2 people call me for help with the gate to the community. I mentioned some people have trouble with the gate in order to make you feel better about not being able to open it. The comment I get the most from guests is how much they appreciate how well I have stocked the home. Keeping a home with lots of stuff, organized and inviting is a puzzle that I am still working on. I understand that you are unhappy about something, I also understand that I can't make everyone happy.
|Kelly B. (review from Vrbo)|
|The place was great, meticulously maintained and appointed. The kitchen has more gadgets, utensils, spices than we have ever seen, TV's, in Living room and every bedroom, movies, video games, games, puzzles galore. Heated bathroom floors, exterior sink, shower and BBQ. Bring your food and clam shovel and everything else is provided.|
|Scott (review from Airbnb)|
|Toby's house was spectacular! Everything was in like-new condition, and very quality. There was no need to pack anything other than food and clothing.. the house had an impressive stock of extra linens, cozy blankets, etc. As for entertainment, the house was fully set up with a Playstation gaming unit, Xbox, internet-ready TVs in every room with access to Netflix; not to mention the extensive DVD, video game, and board game collection. The beds were very comfortable, and the bathrooms were beautiful. Our children enjoyed taking a dip in the jetted tubs on the deck, which was such a fun bonus. The walk to the beach was easy, and the dead-end private road the house is on is very private and quiet. Everything about the home exceeded our expectations, and we hope to return again!|

We loved to stay there and I will decently refer it to all my friends

|Great time in Long Beach>|
|We have been going to the ocean for President's Day weekend for 9 year and we had a wonderful time at this house. Although the weather wasn't in our favor, we still braved the elements and enjoyed some time on the beach. The house is lovely and well maintained. Even though this house it pet friendly, it was really clean which we all appreciated. Our favorite room was the kitchen which was well stocked. We all really enjoy cooking and now we girls want remodel our kitchens, much to our husbands chagrin! The kids loved all the board games and the soaking tubs but especially liked the gaming station. We adults enjoyed the movie selection which is huge and nicely organized. Toby was great to work with and was very responsive. We will definitely visit the house again and are excited to see what it looks like after the game room and apartment are complete! Thanks again for a wonderful stay!|
|Anonymous (review from Vrbo)|
|Ridiculous attention to detail>|
|I really loved this house. It is clear that someone cares about the little things as well as the obvious ones. Sharpened pencils by a notepad in the entry way desk drawer. Comfortable beds with extra pillows. Light switches over nightstands that turn off overhead lights. Instructions, labels, and a better stocked kitchen then my own. I could go on, but I don't want to write that much. If you want to feel pampered in a beautiful space that is incredibly well put together, stay here.|

|Our Favorite Holiday Home >|
|I stayed here with my family over a long weekend and we had a the BEST time! It was the perfect place to relax and unwind with family and friends. The house has a magical feel. We stayed in one of the two master suites and we loved sitting on the balcony in the morning while drinking coffee and watching the waves from house. We spent our time clamming, walking to the beach and when the weather turned on us (like it tends to do in the winter) we watched movies in the great room. We also went to charming Oysterville one day and ate at our favorite restaurant. We LOVE Long Beach and LOVE this house. Can't wait to stay again!|
|Anonymous (review from Vrbo)|
|Been here before, and will always return. Great, relaxing and has everything you need. Thank you for sharing your home.|
|John F. (review from Vrbo)|
|We stayed at the Long Beach house over 4 days recently and had a wonderful time. The weather was typical for this time of the year, so we were inside a fair amount of the time. The home is just fabulous. It has everything we could wish for and more. Toby has thought of everything, from USB wall plug-ins, to luxurious bathrooms, to games for everyone to enjoy and outdoor tubs with ocean views on the deck. It is the perfect vacation for a larger group. We filled up all the bedrooms and we all very comfortable. Fortunately for us, clam digging was open while we stayed and we feasted on fresh crabs, clams and Willipa bay oysters. The great room is huge and the kitchen is awesome and it was the perfect hub for all of us to congregate, share meals and hang out. We walked to the beach a few times, it's just a short walk on the trail. It was fresh but nice to get outside. Dress warm. The covered porch was a big plus. We got in later on Friday night and it was raining. We were able to unload out stuff and stay dry. Toby is the consummate host. He was available by phone if we need anything. We have stayed at the other home in Long Beach and it was just as memorable. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you!|
|Mark F. (review from Vrbo)|
|Incredible house! Incredible location! Incredible vacation!>|
If the definition of "CARING" is thinking of you before you arrive, then Toby and this home rank 110% on the care scale. From every kind of kitchen gadget and utensil you could want to the games and incredible entrainment systems - this place has everything. My wife and I savored the open, relaxed and luxurious environment this home provided us. While we loved walking on the beach that was so closely located right down the path - we also loved just hanging out in the house - reading, watching movies and cooking in the most incredible kitchen we've seen. Oh and be sure to enjoy the soaking tubs on the deck!
If you want to feel cared for on your next vacation - then this is certainly the place for you!

|Spacious house, excellent location>|
My friends and I have been renting a house on the coast over the holidays for five years now, and this was the best one yet. The queen-size bunk beds are brilliant for lodging large groups, and the walking trail to the beach goes straight to the house.
We had a broken item in the house during our stay, and the owner was completely understanding about it. Would definitely rent again.

Beautiful home! Extended family of ten stayed five days at this property to celebrate our annual Christmas holiday. House is situated in a quiet location with plenty of room to roam and about a 5 minute walk to the beach. Rooms are spacious with comfortable beds. Very pet friendly- our dogs were very happy to have their own pet beds waiting for them- nicely placed under the stairs and out of the way. Be sure to closely review the list of items stocked in the house before you pack- we unnecessarily brought some of the same baby equipment that was stored on site. The kitchen was a dream- taken right out of a designer magazine and unbelievably outfitted with nearly any cooking item imaginable. This includes Kitchen Aide mixer, food processor, ice cream makers and double waffle iron just to name a few. The built-in wine cooler was a real surprise. Location was close to town and those interested could easily take a short drive to the grocery store or movie theater. One negative comment concerns the hot-tub. Actually there are two Jacuzzi-type bathtubs located on a shared deck off the two master bed-rooms. These tubs were not used at all as they were too small for social use and too public for private use.
In response to the jetted tubs, I came up with this idea after I stayed at a 5 star resort that had jetted bath tubs outside on the deck overlooking a cove. I loved how I could fill it with clean water and share it with my partner. It was not meant for large groups. If you use it during the day, a swimsuit makes it easier to enter and exit. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, I really appreciate it.

|Luxurious home away from home>|
We have returned to this home, because we find it to have all the comforts of home and then some. We arrived latter in the evening on a cold and rainy night, but the lights were on and the house was warm and inviting as we walked in. Although this is a newer home, Toby is always making little improvements, so it is fun to check everything out when we get their to see what has been added. The simulated fireplace heaters in the master bedrooms upstairs add an inviting touch to already comfortable rooms. A quote from our son from Spokane who was able to join us for the first time: "I thought I was spoiled staying in the master bedroom, and then I got in the shower!" He, of course, was feeling spoiled with the very comfortable queen bed, the large TV with BluRay, the heated bathroom floor, and access to the balcony with the jetted tubs.
Needless to say, we had another awesome weekend at this very comfortable home. We will definitely be returning and will recommend this home for anyone wanting to rent a home with something for everyone.

|The house was beautiful and Toby obviously put a lot of care into the home. It had beautiful views and was close to town. It had plenty of space for a group. The kitchen was fully stocked with kitchen ware and there were tons of games and movies. Wonderful experience and we would absolutely go back!|

|Awesome Beach House!>|
My friend group is scattered throughout the NW and we wanted to find a beach house that was fairly central to everyone. We decided on Long Beach and booked Sea Grass. We were blown away when we arrived by the attention to detail and amenities provided.
The home itself is beautiful and very comfortable. The kitchen is nicely laid out and has everything you need to make a real meal. The entertainment system was fantastic and the volleyball court provided a lot of daytime fun.
The walk to the beach only takes five minutes or so and turned out some incredible sunsets for us. I really can't say enough good things about this place and would encourage anyone who is looking for the ultimate beach house to stay here!
|Nick W. (review from Vrbo)|
|This home literally has everything! Every cooking utensil you could think of, wifi,Games, puzzles, movies, video games, short easy trail to walk to beach. Vehicle beach access couple blocks down the road. I will definately be booking again in the future!|
|Jan D. (review from Vrbo)|
Great place for family gathering.
Kitchen is well equipped and organized.
It was also dog friendly with dog beds, toys and dog dishes.
The beach is a moderate walk through the dunes. It was a bit of a challenge for us older ( 85 yr old ) but 40 yr olds did great. The beach was well worth the challenge.
Tobie, the owner, was wonderful to work with
|Sioban (review from Airbnb)|
|What a great house! Clean, comfortable Kitchen has every piece of equipment that you could ever want. Beds comfortable.|
|Clint (review from Airbnb)|
|The Seagrass house was AMAZING! There were no details left out. From the fully stocked kitchen, to flat screen TV's in every room, to the heated floors in all of the bathrooms! There are 2 master suites, which came in handy since we had my parents with us. Everything in the house is labeled and Toby has written out very organized directions on how to use everything, so you don't have to waste any time trying to figure out how things work or where they go. We also loved that the house was dog friendly for our boxers, Maximus and Annie! There are dog beds and towels, and even a heated hose out front to hose off sandy pups after a day at the beach. The outdoor shower is awesome for washing sandy feet! The house is very spacious, so even with a group of people you still felt like you had privacy. There's plenty of space for everyone to eat at the table, and to sit in front of the fire and watch movies. Conveniently, the beach is only a 4 or 5 minute walk from the house. This is by far the best place we've stayed in Longbeach and would love to come again! Our family from California had no idea Washington had such beautiful beaches, and the house was the icing on the cake! Toby was a great host and got back to us very quickly with any questions we had. This house gets 2 thumbs up, 5 stars and an A+!|

|Great Base Camp for all the coast has to offer.>|
|We loved our stay. We were there to fish but got blown off the river by screaming 60 mile winds one day. The day was saved by the great amenities games and movies. Great setup for parking boats safely and cleaning fish. We will return. We didn't do much cooking but we noticed how equipted it was!|
|Richard S. (review from Vrbo)|
|I was surprised on short notice with the visit from a couple of which I have a long term friendship. My wife and I have had annual vacation together with them for the past 3 years. I have known this couple for 50 years but 1100 miles makes it difficult to coordinate our relationship. PROBLEM? I have never reserved a vacation rental house or hotel of any type online before. The system requirement of a 4 day minimum stay would not allow me to register for the 2 vacant lag days possibly available. All the reviews of the house are great, so let's talk about Toby (who I have never met). THIS IS WHEN I SENT AN E-MAIL TO TOBY with my phone number attached and why I would like to speak about him. It was a pleasant conversation when he phoned, he e-mailed a code which allowed access for the 2 day vacancy, described the process exactly, provided all the information needed in a timely fashion and phoned within the hour of arrival to make sure there wasn't anything we needed. At this time he was informed of a situation with the barbeque leaking grease onto the patio from the last guests (drainage grade of patio restricted drip pan). POINT IS, by the time our conversation had ended, he had an idea for a permanent solution to the problem. To put it simply, there are people who don't have problems because they are always looking for a solution and Toby appears to be that type of person. I did take the time to tighten two toilet seats which were found in need of attention. But that's it, no problems and only solutions. I wouldn't have usually taken the time to do this at most rentals, but during your stay at the Sea Grass your allowed to reflect on Toby's vision. The obvious thought and care that was provided would make anyone appreciative. Definitely the Spice of Life for Family and Friends. Thanks for all you've done, Rick|

|Organized, amazing kitchen, great amenities>|
|Tons of games, puzzles. Plenty of sleeping space. BEST PROVISIONED KITCHEN OF ANY RENTAL WE'VE EVER BEEN TO EVER!!!! We had a great weekend with 12; 6 adults, 6 kids. <5min walk to beach -- beach is much quieter than downtown. We were in Long Beach during kite festival and that was awesome. Given the indoor amenities (DVDs, games, game console, etc) it'd be great for winter too but we were outside constantly! The kids loved the novelty of "outside" baths on the deck. Great great spot... we hope to return and SOON!|

|Sea Grass Home>|
|Step inside to a welcoming home with so many thoughtful features, you'll spend your first hour roaming around admiring them all! From the enticing wall of games and puzzles to the spa-like showers, you'll be amazed by the amenities here. Some of our favorites were the 70" TV with surround sound, movies and Xbox games; the 50+ unit alphabetized spice collection, the dual-capacity commercial waffle maker, and the outdoor jetted tubs - one for each master suite - on the upstairs deck. Outside we grilled, lounged, and played beach volleyball. The outdoor shower was great after sandy romps on the beach, and there was also a warm water hose faucet for quick foot rinses. If you fall in love with the photos of this vacation rental, rest assured - it's for real. Book well in advance because the word is out: Sea Grass Home is the place to be in Long Beach.|
|Heida B. (review from Vrbo)|
This is an outstanding rental. Private with short access to beach and beautifully surrounded by waving sea grass. Everything and more that you would ever need is in the house and on the decks.
We had perfect weather so did not take advantage of the hundreds of films and DVDs or even much tv, but could imagine it would be perfect in rainy weather as well. Gorgeous.
Longbeach was a fun place for everyone in our party (9 to 87 years old), so was ilwaco. Beautiful beaches, tide pools and forested areas. Thank you.

|Family Vacation 2015>|
|This is a very, very nice house and the owner is great! We had a wonderful time at this house. You can walk to the beach or let the kids ride bikes out in the drive way, Its a gated community and right now there is only 2 houses in the development. Very secure no cars driving down the road. It's a short drive to both towns. This is one house you will be glad you rented. It has everything you could want in a vacation house, accept a pie server! that was the only thing missing. Ha! I would recommend this house. In fact I have! Enjoy!|

|Perfect luxury beach house>|
|This was the perfect beach house. It is fully equipped with everything you would want or need for an ocean getaway. The beds were very comfortable, the house immaculately clean, and the shower was a high point. We can't wait to return.|

|Best family vacation>|
We rented this beautiful home over the 4th of July weekend. The weather could not have been better. But that would not have mattered because this home had everything we could possibly imagine and all the amenities of a 5 star hotel. Our family was extremely pampered for our stay, and we all had our space, even with two babies. The area is beautiful appointed and quite private. We hope to stay again in the future.
|jerry J. (review from Vrbo)|
|The home was beautiful and well equipped with all the necessary items for fun and relaxation . The owner was helpful and very gracious as well accommodating. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice clean get away place for family and friends.|

|wonderful 5 star property>|
This is a home we would come back to. My husband, myself and 2 kids, his son and daughter in law plus grand-daughter stayed over an extended Memorial Day weekend. Weather was typical WA coast. Short walk through seagrass to the beach.
The first thing that struck the 4 type-A personalities in this house was how WELL ORGANIZED everything was! I couldn't believe it- it was a dream for us! Kitchen was fully stocked for these picky foodies. We just had to bring the food! Large eat on island for kids, large table for all adults and kids if we wanted. Huge TV in living room with a bazillion movies that were all organized by genre...seriously Toby you outdid yourself here! Video games for the teenage 14 year old, but the 12 year old club volleyball player LOVED LOVED LOVED the sand volleyball court. It was seriously awesome.
There were 2 buckets of sand toys, 3 volleyballs, badminton, everything you could think of was there. We found the crafts at the end. Sad to have missed out on that, but I can say with absolute certainty that we will be back. We had hours of fun playing BOARD GAMES!!! A huge wall was dedicated to this - and completely organized. Couldn't believe the teens wanted to play games with the parents- but folks, this house is magical that way. This home was well stocked, well organized and well thought through. We were not bored the whole 5 days we were there. Which- if you have teenagers, you know they are bored after 10 minutes. Beds were super comfy and the bathrooms were clean and gorgeous. The whole house was clean and tidy. Wifi was super fast and never went down. DirecTV in the house even had sports channels which was heaven to my Mariners/Cubs fan husband. Every message I sent to the owner Toby was returned promptly. You can tell that a lot of care and thought has gone into this home. Thank you for such a fabulous weekend - we will be back again.
|Dao L. (review from Vrbo)|
Thank you Toby for letting us stay in your beautiful home! This is the BEST rental we've ever been to. Everything was clean, nice, spacious, comfortable, well-organized, and well-equipped. We couldn't believe how awesome the kitchen was; it literally has everything you can possibly need! We also loved the wall of board games and the DVD collection. Our family had a wonderful time and will definitely be back!
Thank you again and for always responding so quickly! :)

|Great House, Well Stocked>|
This house is in a quiet area a short walk to the beach. It has a nice layout, with two bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs. It's loaded with games and movies. We found it to be everything that was advertised and very comfortable.
The one thing that is missing are blinds/window coverings in 3 of the 4 rooms, which makes it hard to sleep after sunrise.
The blinds were on back order for 2 months. Sorry about that. The good news is that they are installed now. Thank you for your business, and I am glad that you enjoyed your stay.
|Tim H. (review from Vrbo)|
|Truly the total package>|
|I really appreciated the amount of detail that went into this house. The kitchen is perfect for hosting large meals with plenty of room to cook and feast with friends. The heated tiles in the bathrooms are something I believe I can no longer live without. Queen bunk beds are the coolest way to share a room. This house has so much to offer...it's an enchanting stroll through the sea grass to get to the coast. It's easy to get to Long Beach and walk around town and maybe grab some fish and chips. And if you're up for it there is an Xbox Kinect stocked with all sorts of fun games to play with groups. I'm going to come back, but next time I'll bring my volleyball pals cause that sand court looks like a really good time. Thanks Toby!|

|This house has it all!>|
|We gathered with friends and family for Spring Break with the kids in Long Beach. We knew we needed a large house and couldn't believe our luck in finding this rental. Brand new, spacious, with all the amenities, and situated on a private lot with direct beach access, this rental certainly exceeded our expectations. The kids were able to roam outside worry free due to the front gate and lack of vehicle traffic. Perfect for our stay and would definitely recommend. Thanks Toby!|

|The ocean called it wants us back!>|
|As a travel agent for the last 25 years I have had the privilege of traveling to many first class resorts. This home competes with the finest. From the comfortable beds to the most well planned and stocked kitchen to the amazing showers in the 3 bathrooms. Every detail of a perfect vacation/family reunion/corporate team building/girls weekend or bromance was thought of. 2 master suites with jacuzzi tubs on the deck. Games for all ages. Volleyball/badmitten I could go on and on and on...Toby thank you for sharing your home and dog dishes and dog beds and pet towels with all of us. Looking forward to our stay in August. Not only was our stay incredible but your responsive,kind,helpful demeanor just adds to the value. Cheers!|

|My favorite rental>|
|I told my daughter that this house was perfect for a vacation getaway. She asked me why. I didn't think too long. The house has every high end appliance which was nice. It had very comfortable bedrooms and beds. It was a very short walk to the beach. But what was really great about the house was the peace and quiet of the road to the house. Two houses in a gated community. Your kids could ride their bikes all they wanted without interruption from cars. No cars. Peace. My daughter and I sat on the deck for an hour, something we never do. She reading her book and I responding to emails(I know, not good). My wife and son at the beach flying a kite. It was perfect. Thank you Toby. You were so responsive to the small AV problem. We would rent again.|

|WOW! This house really has it all! Bring your clothes and stop by the grocery for a little food and you are set. The kitchen has all high end appliances, big and small. Does not matter if you are cooking a feast or baking cookies all the tools, spices and seasonings are right there. The bedrooms are nice and comfortable. With two hot water heaters there was more than enough hot water for all seven of us to take nice long showers and utilize the multiple shower heads in all three. The shower towels are amazing, very thick, soft bath sheets, which rivals the towels you would find in a five star hotel. The outside shower was awesome for cleaning up the kids and dog after spending hours digging in the sand and playing in the surf. The Great Room is definitely worthy of its name with 7.1 surround sound, cozy fire and comfy leather couches. We were blessed with beautifully sunny weather and spent time out in the sand and playing volleyball, but we still found time to enjoy a few of the many games, puzzles, crafts and movies. Heading to the beach, the beach towels are there and so are the beach chairs. Too tired to walk to the beach for the sunset, no worries, you can watch it from the deck off the master bedrooms. Biggest drawback for this property is that the time went by too quickly, will definitely be booking this one for a longer stay. Next time, I think I will use the ice cream maker!|
