About Jay Senior
I bought Kite Beach Lookout in the spring of 2008, after spending the previous few years kiting in the Gorge. I now spend several weeks there every summer kiting with my wife. Together, we spend most of the winters snowboarding at Mount Baker, with some tropical kiting vacations thrown in to keep us sane. :) We hope that you enjoy your holiday at Kite Beach Lookout!
Jay Senior purchased this House in 2008
Why Jay Senior chose Hood River
Hood River is very close to Seattle (where I live) and has some of the best wind in the world for kiting. The mountain biking trails are also world class. A summer place with my two favorite sports rolled into one is hard to beat!
What makes this House unique
I can't imagine a better place to stay in the Gorge. We love having breakfast at the dining room table, while watching the wind build on the water. When we're ready, it's a quick drive down to the Event site to rig and launch our kites. At the end of a glorious day on the water, there's nothing better than relaxing on the deck overlooking the Columbia, or soaking in the hot tub on the back deck.

Great family house!
Walking distance to town made this a perfect location for our family attending a wedding...kitchen as very well stocked! The view was awesome!
Fantastic place in Hood River
This is a lovely home. Super comfortable, clean and very well equipped. The location is great and we really enjoyed the balcony where we could watch the kite surfers and sailors, and the hot tub under the stars. The owner was fantastic to work with. Location is very good although we never actually walked into town! Comfy beds, plenty of nice towels and a well equipped kitchen are great additions!
Location is amazing !! Cleanliness and condition of stay not so much :(
Rented this house for a two night family getaway and it was overall a memorable time. The location is perfect for a quick jaunt to downtown Hood River and is secluded enough to feel miles away from any city. The view from the balcony is wonderful.
Where this rental fell was on how clean it was when we arrived and the condition. There were ant traps in the kitchen. The light/fan in the living room did not work, the foot rest at the kitchen bar was falling apart, and the carpets still had dog hair left behind from the previous visitors. My wife even had to clean the vacuum that was there just to re-vacuum the place so our 12 month old could crawl around.
We did email the vacation management company and to this day have yet to get a reply. I do want to give a shout out to the own though because Jay was super responsive and helpful!!!
Nice property with fantastic view!
We enjoyed Christmas in this property and had a great time. The steep driveway is a bit challenging in the winter so would probably rate this at 5 stars in the summer.
Kite Beach Lookout home
We have rented several properties in the past two years. This house was among the best we have stayed at. Everything was very clean and the house was well-equipped. The beds were very comfortable and the bedrooms were of a good size. The view was wonderful. I would highly recommend this home for a Hood River stay.
We had a fine stay at the Kite Beach Lookout
The Kite Beach Lookout was a very comfortable place to stay. The view of the Columbia River was spectacular. It is located near downtown so that we could walk there. It was very clean and well stocked. The house was quiet and open so we could all relax. The bedrooms were good sized. We found the kitchen well equipped for cooking. We enjoyed the hot tub. We spent 4 very fun days there.
Hood River is a laid back adventure town. You can go hard during the day, and chill out in the evenings.
