Everything You Need for a family, pet friendly or romantic Stay At The Beach.
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

Everything you need for comfort and convenience is provided. Meals are easy in the well stocked kitchen, there is a full bath and washer and dryer. We have provided bikes and helmets for just about everyone and a firepit with wood too. And last but not least there is a private hot tub.

This was a great property for our dogs and children. It was cozy, relaxing, and close to the beach.
We always enjoy our stay at your properties and are so thankful to have found places to stay that welcome our dogs and allow us to come play on the beach at a decent rate! We will always come back!
The house is cozy, comfortable, clean and has a fully equipped kitchen with anything you'd want and then some. It's location makes it easy to get around. We'll be back.
Just what we wanted
Close to the fishing docks with plenty of amenities.
Excelent place to relax
This is our 3rd stay at Grandmas, and each time it gets better.
Grandmas is a lovely place to find peace of mind and location close to shopping and outdoor activities. We hope to vacation there again next year.
Thank you so much for taking such great care of Grandma’s house! We are so happy to host you, and look forward to seeing you next year.
You truly feel like you’re staying at grandmas house! Wonderful yard, cozy quaint house with lots of little amenities for both you and your dog. Wonderful communication with owners, but all the privacy you could want. We will definitely be going back to eat more crab, make S’mores, and end the day with a nice soak in the hot tub.
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.
