SIMPLY BY THE BEACH - DOG WALL OF FAME

Pacific Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (sleeps max of 8 adults/4 kids)

Seashell Beach Cottage is light and airy with a friendly Seashell theme throughout. This is our personal second home away from home. Casual, comfortable and affordable best describe our newly constructed vacation home (2009) at the Northern border of Pacific Beach and Moclips, Washington.

We love dogs and have made this a dog friendly home. Dogs love the beach and we are the closest home to the beach entrance. We even have a 'Dog Wall of Fame' for our furry guests.

Our sweet beach cottage is about 1360 square feet, but we have set it up to sleep a MAXIMUM of 8 adults (4 couples) and 4 children or 3 couples and 6 children. Two private bedrooms with queen beds, 1 sofa bed in the living room and the loft bedroom is dormitory style with one full bed and 4 twin beds. Seashell Beach Cottage is also perfect for 1-2 couples and up to 2-3 dogs.(subject to approval*). 8 Adults Maximum.

Close to Beach: Situated near the entrance to the local beach access, this home is conveniently located for easy access by our guests. If you are searching for a dog friendly home that is clean, affordable, new construction, not in a development and a stones throw from the beach - we are the right place.

The upstairs master suite has a deck that faces the west. We can not see the ocean through the trees, but with the door left open, you can hear the sound of the surf as it gently lulls you to sleep. Seashell Cottage uniquely faces the “Enchanted Forest” with the famous “Tree Man” where many elves and fairies live in the forest brush below. It’s a hit for family story time by the outdoor campfire. There is nothing like creating memories for the young ones as you roast marshmallows and make Smores’s.

Propane Grill for outdoor dining: Our gas grill, patio table and chairs makes having a family barbecue easy and fun. In the summer months we offer an outdoor metal fire pit for roasting marshmallows or hot dogs. You bring your wood and beach towels and enjoy time by the fire.

Our Beach Cottage sleeps a maximum of 8 adults, 4 children and can accommodate parking for 3-4 compact or standard vehicles. Dining area accomodates 6 at the table, but we have fold out tables to add making for larger dining capacity.

Dogs rule!: We love dogs and welcome up to 2-3 dogs (subject to approval and signed dog contract) that are well behaved with well trained and responsible owners. We invite your four legged family member to join our exclusive 'Dog Wall of Fame' . Submitting a jpg photo is easy and we will do the rest.

DeAnne purchased this house in 2009

Love, love tiny town of Pacific beach, Washington and its eclectic style and wide open beaches

1 block from beach, peak a view of ocean, private forest in back, fenced yard for dogs. Private wood 5 foot tall fence on 3 sides and a see through wire fence towards the enchanted forest which is 3.5 feet tall. We love dogs and keep a clean, dog friendly home available to responsible owners.

The Dog Would Like to Move In

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Happiness is a rescue dog racing down the beach with abandon. Being the "all that she could be" military pup from Lewis McChord AFB, she certainly knew how to manage the locals and tourists in Pacific Beach. That lil' chipmunk over the back fence was just too tempting though.

Over Labor Day weekend the weather pushed us north to cruise around Lake Quinault & Ruby Beach (easy drive in one day) while our younger crowd ventured down to Ocean Shores looking for the sun.

This house provides an excellent travel option for dog people - the homeowners have accepted the sand & paws challenge that many avoid. The home sits adjacent to a steep beach access road to the ocean, an easy walk for adults & four-legged guests. For toddler safety we drove a car down with our beach gear (avoiding the holiday drivers). The local bar is literally across the street. We walked to Pacific Beach for donuts along the coast highway, returning by beach to the house.

This comfortable home is laid out well for two couples with a loft area for five kids or maybe that brother that keeps showing up for beach vacations!

Great time

I was very pleased to be able to stay again this year at the Dog Wall of Fame with my family. Very relaxing, easy place to be, love the walk down to the beach and the eventual walk back, too. And the deer in the evenings! And we went to Lake Quinault for the day, enjoyed a picnic lunch and walked one of the trails. And on the way back we saw a bear cross the road, very exciting! The property was well stocked, love the pictures of the dogs and my sister is sending one of Ally who was able to come with us. I am talking to my girlfriends about staying there, we usually go to the mountains but we are considering a trip to this place instead. We also drove to Westport, very scenic place. Lots of boats and the sunshine was awesome. Thanks again, I have been telling everyone of my time with my family and how nice everything was.

Owner's Response: Wonderful to hear you had a great time. Dog guest Ally is now framed and on our Dog Wall of fame. Seashell is a great gathering place for friends. We hope you visit us again very soon!

Girls weekend

We had a wonderful time during our recent stay at the Seashell Cottage. The house is well maintained and clean, with easy to follow instructions for doing our part upon departure. The owner was very helpful and responded to our last minute request for an additional night stay quickly. We appreciated that a lot, as we were not ready to go home yet!! We enjoyed a day trip to Westport- and a day trip to Lake Quinault for hiking. Not only did my sisters and nieces enjoy the stay, but "our" dog also enjoys the dog friendly atmosphere, including the nice walk to the beach. We would definitely recommend this location to friends and relatives. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We are glad you ladies had another great time at Seashell Cottage. Thank you for the reminders of how our location is so close to some wonderful day trips - like Westport and Lake Quinalt. You are 5 star guests and we hope you visit again!!!

Wonderful Pacific Northwest Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 20, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Property was exactly as listed and I would (and have) recommended it to friends.

We especially enjoyed being able to listen to the surf even inside the house. The master bedroom (upstairs) was quite large, which enabled us to put both large dog beds in the bedroom and still be able to walk around without tripping over them. The kitchen, although more compact than we're used to, was very efficiently organized and easy to use. We also loved having a fenced yard for our dogs, and they thoroughly enjoyed the beach walks (within easy walking distance) and chasing the seagulls, as well as our walks down to the Pacific Beach stores.

I especially recommend staying at this property in the latter half of September - the beach and neighborhood are very quiet and the weather is still nice.

Owner's Response: Best kept secret is out.... The best time at the Washington Coast is September and October. Clear skies, beautiful sunsets and wide open beaches. Thanks for being great guests!

Dogs loved it

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 15, 2013

We had a relaxing weekend in this little house. The main floor was just right for us (one couple and two greyhounds). The house feels spacious, has plenty of seating, and besides the one bedroom we used, there's another bedroom upstairs, enough beds (including a bunkbed) for 4 or 5 more people to sleep in the open area at the top of the stairs, and the living room couch is also a hide-a-bed, so you could really squeeze quite a few people in here, as long as there are no more than 2 couples who need privacy. We may come back with some friends next spring or so, if we can get a group together.

The main floor would be wheelchair accessible if not for a couple steps up to the porch. A portable ramp would take care of that, if you're in a wheelchair.

The dogs loved the fenced yard that went all the way around the house. They raced each other around and around the house. In one corner of the yard, there was a tree down over the fence across the back, where the dogs could have escaped if it had occurred to them, so one of us did need to stay nearby when they were outside.

The floors are hardwood or laminate, with one thin rug in front of the couch, so do bring your dog beds if your dog(s) need something cushy. There are a couple tension-mount baby gates that could be used to keep the dogs out of the kitchen, if need be.

The beach was not quite walking distance for us, but a very short drive down a winding hill. The weather was wonderful for October -- most years, it's chilly and windy on the beach, but this time, it was t-shirt weather, warm enough for a picnic. I only wish we'd found more time in the weekend to spend on the beach.

We tried the pub across the street for dinner (carry-out) one evening, and it was quite good, and reasonably priced. I've seen kitchens with more extras, but this one has all the basic equipment you will need. Glass-topped stove and microwave inside, and BBQ outside. There's a shelf full of dvd's. The one we tried turned out to be a dud, but probably most people could find something worth watching.

An early check-in is possible without extra charge as long as nobody is checking out the same day you're arriving. (Though we wound up arriving around the usual check-in time, anyway.) "Check in" and "check out" are convenient, with a numeric lock, so you don't have to stop anywhere to pick up a key. The owner was also understanding when I came down sick on our last morning and we needed a couple extra hours to get me fit for travel

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great description. We strive to offer a comfortable home and yard for dogs. Tree down on fence was temporary from a storm prior week. We hope you can come again and bring friends too!!!
