About Rene Tobin
We are Shawn and Rene Tobin. We live in Gold Bar Washington on the way to Stevens Pass. We have 4 kids and 3 dogs as well as one Grandma living with us. Needless to say hotels are not the place for us! We love vacation houses and stay in them when we travel. We started out buying our first house in Westport when we adopted our 2 youngest children 8 years ago. We needed a place to stay when we came to visit grandmas Glenna and Beth. Our family just did not fit in a hotel room anymore. We decided to rent the house out when we were not using it to make ends meet. We found a property manager to rent it for us but they went out of business. Rene decided to manage the house herself and discovered she really enjoyed the job. We love sharing Westport with others and helping people make vacation memories so when the opportunity to buy Shawn's great uncle Ed's house came up we bought that too. Then Shawn's mom Glenna moved in with us leaving her parents home empty, and so now you can enjoy Grandma's house too.
Rene Tobin purchased this House in 2015
Why Rene Tobin chose Westport
This house is owned by the Tobin Family. Shawn Tobin grew up living with his Grandparents Earl and Elizabeth Brown in this house. Years ago we made a deal to buy Grandma's house from her while she lived in it. Shawn wanted the house to stay in the family and he wanted to help his grandma out with a little extra bingo money. Earl was a commercial fisherman with his brother Ed and Elizabeth worked in the canneries. Shawn's mom Glenna worked in the hospitality industry and his sister Mickie worked at the shipyard. Other family owned and worked Cranberry Bogs. Shawn spent his childhood riding his bike around Westport playing in the woods and at the beach and developed a love of nature that led him to work for parks. Rene grew up in the suburbs of Seattle. Her parents loved the beach and family vacations seemed to always led to the coast.
What makes this House unique
Grandma's house has 2 bedrooms with beds set up to accommodate one or two couples or a family with kids. The house is very pet friendly with a fenced yard.

Just what we needed
Comfy, homey, clean, fully-appointed kitchen, sea air, Grandma's House stays on my list.
Always great to stay at Grandmas. It’s our fourth year and my kids always look forward to the next one. Affordable and cozy has everything we need for some time away. Love how close it is to the beach and store. Bikes are awesome. Kids love that they can ride to the beach and all around.
Less than I expected, but it turned out fine.
I was disappointed in the condition of the house. It was clean, uneven floor took some getting used to. The kitchen wasn't as equipped as I thought. The small can opener was hard for our older hands. Ended up buying one. The freedom to have animals was great but as soon as you close the windows, well, we didn't close them. The back yard was disappointing. There are areas that little dogs can get through and on one side there are thorns ..in the yard. Made it impossible to just let our little ones run. Hot tub, very small and the fast jets only running for 22 seconds was disappointing. With all that said. We made it work and we enjoyed the area. Westport was NOT what I expected but grew on me. I chose to have a great time.
The little aquarium in Westport is run by a very enthusiastic and fun family. We highly recommend visiting. Much of the year there are tons of sea lions on the docks. Of course fishing, surfing and family time at the beach are the most popular activities our guests enjoy.
