Oak or teak plank flooring in lower level. Quality Wool oriental rugs on both levels. Appliances include dishwasher, compactor, dual zone wine chiller,new glass top range. All rooms except one have superior water views. Stone fire place has been converted to propane logs.

Owner had Labrador retriever, so entire property is fenced for pet protection. Steps lead directly to privately owned beach. There is a 50 X 15 foot deck at waters edge, that has separate sleeping quarters for kids in a tastefully decorated 12 X 10 feet room, with king-sized sleeping loft. A small kitchen and a glass covered eating area, as well as a stainless barbecue and and refrigerator and a outdoor shower are on this deck, as is the boat launch with electric winch. Two fiberglass row boats are for the use of guests, as well as two stainless crab pots,a crab cooker and clam digging gear. A mooring bouy is available for your boat, that can be moored directly in front of the property.

Clams, Mussels and Dungeness and red rock crab are available in Julu until Labor day, and in the winter, if regulations permit. Salmon fishing can be good when the season is open. Your animal neighbors include gray whales in the spring, along with California sea lions, sea otters, harbor seals and bald eagles, king fishers and great blue heron.

This truly is living in paradise,on a perfect private crescent beach. No noise, no crowds. Enjoy sunsets as spectacular as exist anywhere in the world, framed by the Olympic mountains and reflected by the beautiful harbor.

Owners are a retired professional couple, married for 45 years. We have spent most of our adult lifetime rebuilding and furnishing this cottage as a sanctuary from living and working in a major metropolitan area. We have equipped it with amenities that should satisfy anyone, whether a gourmet cook or avid boater and fisherman or nature loving beach bum. We love to fish, and have personally caught a few thousand fish, primarily blackmouth salmon, in the harbor in front of our home. We have also caught hundreds of Dungeness crab in the bay in front of our home. We have left all of the antiques and art works for our guests to enjoy, taking with us only our family pictures and our memories. Please make some of your own.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1971

We bought this home 40 years ago from a beloved family member. I have come to this beautiful place for almost 68 years, and it has been our haven since we were first married. It has a sandy beach (sometimes)and a westerly exposure, and is only an hour away from Seattle. Not much rain here, since it is close to the 'rain shadow' of the Olympic mountains, and it provides a perfect place to relax and enjoy life with ones family. I can go out my french doors to a boat in 2 minutes, and drop a crab pot in the water in 10 minutes. We have completely rebuilt and expanded the indoors and outdoors living areas over the years. It is functionally like a new home, yet has the charm of an English cottage. The last of the 2,500 square feet of wooden decks and walkways was completed in the spring of 2010. We now can enjoy the wonderful property from 7 different levels, from the waters edge to our parking area off Beach Drive, the road that leads to our home.

Guests will enjoy complete privacy at our home. You will see bald eagles every day of your stay. In March, gray whales migrate up to their northern homes, stopping by to feed on sand shrimp that live in the sands of our beach. I have seen them hundreds of times. Once, 15 years ago, one passed away on our beach. Forty tons of dead whale gave us our 15 minutes of fame, since the sad event had never occurred before inside Puget Sound, and the media went wild. The view of the water is wonderful from all of the decks. Have a glass of wine while relaxing in our hot tub and watch the spectacular sunsets. If you not sure what heaven is like you will have a better understanding once you stay on Beverly Beach for a few days.
