BEACHFRONT LUXURY-NOMINATED BEST OF NORTHWEST ESCAPES 2009-2013

Moclips House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Welcome to Sand Castlemore – the perfect escape to the Seascape of the Pacific Northwest. Just steps from the sand, this new beachfront luxury home was nominated for 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 King 5 & Evening Magazine Best of Western Washington Northwest Escapes--Best Getaways. Our beautiful, custom-built, Lindal Cedar (beachfront) home is slightly more than a 2 hour drive from the Seattle/Tacoma or Portland areas. Located on Sunset Beach in Moclips, Washington it is an easy drive north of Ocean Shores. The home's seashore setting, glorious unobstructed panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean, decadent accommodations, and magical charm make it the perfect vacation destination for families, friends, romantic getaways, and for a sea escape from the 'real world.'

Make no mistake, SAND CASTLEMORE IS JUST STEPS FROM THE SAND -- not like homes on the bluff requiring a serious hike to the beach or a drive in the car, and not like homes to the south sitting a mile or more back from the sand’s edge -- but rather, Sand Castlemore requires only 16 easy steps from the homes deck, down a private staircase, to the sea grass below. Imagine spending the entire day on the beach but only having a quick trip up your very own stairs to grab a beach towel, some food and drink, or to meet a restroom need. This can be especially handy with children or older folk who may tire more easily. This home has unmatched privacy--there are no homes on the beach to the south as far as the eye can see. This is especially convenient when enjoying the private hot tub.

This part of the Washington Coast features a beautiful high bluff with windswept trees, and the tranquil, unspoiled beaches below. Perhaps more surprising, it features the expansive Olympic wilderness that is famous for its BIGFOOT SIGHTINGS. Several of the most “well-known and documented” sightings have been only a few miles from our home. We won’t tell if we’ve seen Bigfoot ourselves!

There are several of the best steelhead and salmon rivers in the whole Pacific Northwest within a 30 minute drive. Lake Quinault is a 20 minute drive east. The Hoh River rain forest and the Olympic National Park are a short distance away.

This gorgeous 3 bedroom, 2 bath home can accommodate 8 to 10 and offers unmatched seaside quality throughout.

Wonderful holiday escape!

Setting can't be beat. Warm, inviting house perfect for two couple and kids. We made it work for three couples, although the loft bedrooms with bath downstairs was a bit awkward. None of the bedrooms are very big, but all are adequate. Livingroom is special with gas fireplace (really puts out the heat & very realistic), very conducive to enjoying each other's company. Hot tub was a great luxury (really appreciated the provided beach towels). Propane stove didn't get very hot which was a problem for our chefs, but owners were very attentive and did their best to alleviate the problem. Rest of kitchen worked well --- well stocked with mixing bowls, cookie sheets, pots, pans of every size and use. Glassware good (almost five of every conceivable size/shape). Sum total experience? We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Perfect weekend beach retreat

We recently had the pleasure of staying here for a relaxing three day weekend in October with a group of 6 adults, 2 children (ages 6 and 3) and 1 dog. Only a short stretch of seagrass separates you from the beach and amazing views can be enjoyed from throughout the home or from deck's hot tub or Adirondack chairs. The home is tastefully and comfortably furnished and thoughtfully setup. Even dog beds and dog towels were provided. Our group loves to cook so we especially appreciated the well-stocked kitchen. The owners were pleasant and prompt in responding to questions. Overall, highly recommended.

Perfection!

Sandcastlemore truly does have it all. The views are spectacular, the location (with no neighbors on the left) is great, and the home is fully stocked. We've used VRBO a number of times and every place seems to promote their property as having 'everything'. This property can back that statement up, right down to the little skewers for corn on the cob. The owners have thought of everything you could ever want on your vacation, and as a results we felt really cared for in their property. The dog treats and toys were an added bonus. So thoughtful!! We can't wait to come back to Sandcastlemore for another fabulous vacation. Thank-you so much!

We LOVE this house! We will definitely be back! The house itself is gorgeous... very accommodating! The location couldn't be more desirable-right on the beach, last house at that end of the beach, so complete privacy on that end.We had young kids with us, and they had an amazing time. We bbq'd out on the gorgeous deck, listening to the surf while we cooked. The stereo system is wired to speakers out on the deck, so in the evenings we enjoyed the views, listened to music, and had our wine and cocktails! An awesome place!

My family and I just spent 3 glorious days, a long weekend (way too short) at Sand Castlemore. This home is perched on a knoll over looking the Pacific Ocean. A few steps and you reach the pathway through sea grass to the sand. We were delighted by how well appointed this home was, every detail was thought of. I have rented many times through VRBO and I have never felt so cared for! The hot tub was great, beds comfortable, great kitchen........thanks for making my birthday weekend one of the best ever!
