SAND BUCKET COTTAGE - PRICE GUARANTEE

Pacific Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The Sand Bucket Cottage is the best equipped retreat for the money in Pacific Beach. We back this with a price match guarantee, that we will meet or beat any competitor's quote whose accommodation has comparable features.

We spent three years looking for the right property with great 'bones'. We purchased at a price lower than anybody else, undertook a major renovation to bring you the highest quality accommodation at the best possible price.

Consequently, you will find features in our cottage that our competitors do not have such as; hardwood floors, cozy gas fireplace, a full second bathroom in-conjunction with a premium cable package on a HDTV with integrated DVD and complementary Wi-Fi, Roku player with free Netflix account a gas BBQ, washer dryer, fire pit and all the comforts of home!

Others have sought to imitate us, but no-one can match the combination of features, quality and price.

Only 1/2 a mile to expansive sandy beaches on the most picturesque part of the Washington coast. Sleeps up to 8 people, great for families, with a focus on kid friendly activities with many toys and games.

The cottage features two bedrooms, the master has an attached private bathroom and it's own deck to enjoy the morning sun. The oversized front BBQ deck faces west, relax while enjoying the sunset. The kitchen is fully stocked and provides all utensils and gadgets to make your stay comfortable, ample linens and towels are provided for your stay.

A short stroll into the town of Pacific Beach, where you can enjoy an espresso while you browse the local gift stores. The town is nestled next to the beach which provides wonderful opportunities to enjoy the majesty of the Pacific Ocean.

Keywords: Cottage, wi-fi, gas fireplace, beach, cable tv, cozy, families, couples, dogs, best value.

Guestbook comments from the owner
You have created a wonderful beach house environment that combines the fun funky atmosphere of the seashore with the comforts of home. As someone who has completed a restoration of an old house, I would be very interested in seeing the before and after photos. The weather was typical and atypical for November – rain fog mist rain and brilliant sunshine, exactly what we were looking for, thank you.

Owned and renovated by Emily and Rob in late 2008, we live and work in Seattle and try to escape to our ocean retreat on a frequent basis. We have two young children so this is a perfect distance from Seattle to get away.

Emily Compton purchased this cottage in 2008

Emily's family have been visiting Pacific beach annually since the mid 1980s. The beach never gets old, beautiful and warm in summer, the winter is often just as much fun with some great storms and clamming on certain weekends. It provides us with a relaxing respite from the stresses of city life.

We specialize in being both a family friendly and pet friendly location. To make your stay as easy as possible if you have young children we have made available many things you would need for small children, including a pack and play, high chair, small chair for 2 - 5 year olds, numerous toys and boards games for all ages. A full compliment of cable channels and DVDs help for those downtime moments.

We also provide dog towels and an outdoor hose to help clean your dog. For the chefs amongst you, the kitchen is fully stocked for your needs, including a griddle and food processor as well as some spices and olive oil. Complimentary Starbucks coffee and tea is provided for you to enjoy during your stay.

Relaxing getaway close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5
This was a fantastic getaway! The best part was that I found the place and my wife loved it! The owners took a lot of love and care in remodeling this place (they have a photograph memoir of the project) and then went the extra mile to decorate it with a unified "relaxing/beach" theme.

There is plenty of anything you need on hand; kitchen supplies, bedding, beach chairs, games, etc.

In addition, they are pet friendly and our chihuahua loved spending time on the beach. Speaking of the beach, it's an easy 1/3 mile walk or also easily accessible by car if you want to bring along a lot of things. It's also so wide and long that it's easy to feel as if you are there by yourself in peaceful solitude.

Not many places nearby to eat, but we did find a decent cafe/bar down the road and brought in plenty of groceries. We'll definitely be back again!

Coast fun

  • 4 of 5
Our family had such a relaxing stay at this sweet cottage. It is clean, well equipped and stylishly decorated. Our 2 yr old twins were happy to play outside in the fenced on front porch while we made dinner and we even found beach toys in a bucket! Just a short walk to the beach, coffee and town. We will certainly stay again.

We had a wonderful time at the Sand Bucket. We happened to be there in what the locals were calling the worst storm of the winter, but no worries. We used the gas fireplace, watched movies, and read some books. Totally relaxing.

Beautiful and relaxing vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for Thanksgiving and my birthday for a nice getaway. The house is very nicely decorated and just as pictured. I would have loved to use the firepit but it was too cold at the time of year that we stayed. It was nice to have two bathrooms for our group. It is a smaller house but we had plenty of room for the four of us. The master bed was super comfy and I love the deck off the master. The favorite was the fireplace in the living room which warmed up the house quick. You can tell the home is loved by the owners. They have taken great care to have all the comforts of home and then some. The selection of games and books was awesome! I would stay again and recommend to anyone but you will need a car if you plan to see the sights. The towns are very small and quaint. The house is close to the beach but not within walking distance for the mobility challenged.

Couple with grown children and grandkids :)

  • 5 of 5
Upon arrival I was a bit surprised that we were across the road from the beach, I didn't remember that in the description, even tho I knew we were about a 1/2 mile away and knew there was walking involved. The cabin is darling, it seemed it might be too small at first, but it turned out to be cozy, clean, bright and warm. The kitchen is well stocked, we ate all of our meals there except for lunch on arrival where we split the fish & chips @ Patty's Perch, DON'T eat there! Dirty, expensive, and not very friendly! The only complaint we all had was the sleeper sofa, it was so hard to sit on (I mean literally hard on the bottom) and only fits one smaller person for sleeping. What a wonderful week of getting away, good weather, beautiful beach and no cell phone reception! Thanks Emily and family :)
