We are only steps from the paved Discovery Trail and the short path to the beach. Beautiful sunset and ocean views await you from the living room and upper deck. Short three block walk to restaurants, shops, and activities in downtown Long Beach. If you are looking for a party house, than this isn't it at all . . . the neighborhood couldn't be any quieter than this!

There is an upgraded queen sofabed in the living room. Downstairs is the master bedroom with a walk-in closet, an electric fireplace, and a deck that overlooks the famous Bolstad beach approach kite and fireworks displays during fourth of July, the Kite Festival in August, and New Years Eve. There is a Parklane King bed with premium hotel grade mattress/boxsprings. On this same floor there is a guest room with a Parklane Queen bed, with premium hotel grade mattress/boxsprings. Bedbug protection on all mattresses. In addition, a full bath with tub and shower, a washer and dryer, and a one car garage are located on the first floor.

Free Wi-Fi; HD TV in living room; DVD player, and stereo are provided for your comfort and pleasure. There are board games and puzzles for those rainy days at the beach, and a propane fireplace for those chilly evenings in the living room. Maximum six people, including children. No pets, no smoking.

About The Owner

My husband and I have been coming to Long Beach for annual 'retreats' since we met in 1984. Because we spend so much time at the beach, we decided to buy a home here.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2010

Why The Owner chose Long Beach

When we saw the view from this townhouse and the quietness of the neighborhood, we knew that this was the place. It is truly a tranquil retreat!

What makes this townhome unique

Quiet, peaceful, serene, home away from home with a view! Far away from the every day noise, stress, and gridlock. All you hear is the sound of that surf! What you see is ocean and beautiful sunsets. Our 'Ahhhh' moments. . . Keeps the blood pressure down. Can't get any better than this!

Guestbook comments from the owner

we wouldn't stay anywhere else if we go to Long Beach...and the neighbor on the other side got the garbage can chained up so that it cannot be accessed by the bear....Oh! We saw deer grazing right across the road from us....all in all it was magnificent!!!

Fantastic Townhome - Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5
The condo is very spacious and has all the comforts of home - you can tell it is not just a rental and is, instead, a retreat for the owners as well. With the 2 bedrooms and full bath downstairs, there is tons of space in the upstairs for the living/kitchen/half bath. The building only has 3 units in it (this one being an end unit) with a sister building of another 3 units next to it, so it's not one of those massive developments and it is in a very quiet neighborhood just a few blocks from the main drag in Long Beach which made walking to to the delicious Cottage Bakery everyday too easy. The building sits at a bit of a perpendicular angle to the coast, so the living room deck looks across the dunes and part of the ocean while the patio off the master bedroom (as well as the kitchen window) looks over the dunes towards the main Bolstad beach approach. There are screens on the patio/windows, so we were able to leave them open and enjoy the sounds of the ocean while lounging in the living room. The walk to the beach and/or discovery trail is very short and just past the condo as it is near the end of a dead end road shortly before the discovery trail. We were even treated to deer wandering through the neighborhood on more than one occasion during our stay. Corresponding and booking with the owner was easy and pleasant. You really cannot go wrong with this rental.

A great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful stay at A Tranquil Retreat! We spent 3 nights in this lovely vacation home that was just a 5 minute walk over the dunes to the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The property was extremely clean and had all the amenities that we could have hoped for- from plenty of plush towels, extra pillows and blankets and a kitchen full of cooking essentials. We had 3 children, ages 6-9, in our group and the close location to the beach, the Discovery Trail and to the town of Long Beach were all huge bonuses for us. Also, the owners were great to work with and helped to make our stay there effortless. We will certainly return to this lovely property in Long Beach!

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 4 nights at A Tranquil Retreat. The townhouse and location were very accurately pictured & described on the VRBO website. My contact with the owner before we arrived was friendly & efficient ; I had only one question during our stay & my text was promptly answered.
The townhouse was very clean & there were plenty of nightlights, which made getting around at night in a strange place very easy.
We really enjoyed hanging out in the spacious upstairs area. I have no complaints about the townhouse or our stay but I will mention a couple of things that may be a bit of an issue for some people. The upstairs fireplace was good at providing heat, which we didn't need much during our stay, but wasn't much to look at - very small flames that were mostly blue. And, I've seen more realistic electric fireplaces than the one in the master bedroom but that didn't really matter to us. The garage was too small for our Ford Explorer but was a good place for my boyfriend to work on & store his bicycle.
Because we had been on the road for 7 days before arriving at A Tranquil Retreat, we were tired of eating at restaurants & ate most of our meals in the townhouse. The kitchen had everything we needed. We did really enjoy the pizza at the little store right outside the entrance to Cape Disappointment State Park.
We loved the close access to the great Discovery Trail & enjoyed several long walks. One local attraction that was a pleasant surprise for us was the Kite Museum - it was much more interesting than we had anticipated.
We live in California & probably will not be vacationing again on the Long Beach Peninsula anytime soon but if I were to vacation again in the area, I would definitely want to return to A Tranquil Retreat.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at A Tranquil Retreat! Thank you for your feedback with regards to the upstairs fireplace. We had the propane company take a look at it and they replaced the regulator so the flame height is back to normal. We appreciate any and all feedback from our guests. Thank you again for choosing our home for your Long Beach WA visit!

Truly a Tranquil Retreat Only Steps from the Beach

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in a Tranquil Retreat for four nights with friends. We're all writers and wanted a quiet "home base" for writing, reading, and relaxing, and to use as a jumping off point for all the nearby attractions. We were delighted by the comfort and luxury. The condo is clean, inviting, and the beds are extremely comfortable. The upstairs living room is actually brighter than it appears in the photograph, the entire common area quite spacious and airy. The beach and Discovery Trail are only a few steps away, and the restaurants and boutiques are also within easy walking distance. We appreciated the propane fireplace, views of spectacular sunsets (and a rainbow to the east one evening!), and the amenities - hair dryer, coffee maker, soap, restaurant menus, Discovery Trail maps, books, extra pillows and blankets. We enjoyed our time together as friends, catching up with each others' lives in such a lovely, tranquil environment. Thank you so much, Cathy and James.

Amazing Anniversary!

  • 5 of 5
15th Anniversary ... Townhouse was very so lovely. Very tastefully decorated, colors were so relaxing.
The location was perfect walk to the beach, so quiet and romantic. Just what every couple that wants to get away and spend quality time would love. This place had everything! The photos were very accurate.
I would recommend this place to all my friends. Close to all activities, shops, and dining.

Thank you Cathy & James for sharing your amazing home with us!
You made our 15th Anniversary even better.

Nicely sized, nicely equipped

  • 5 of 5
This is a great beach house rental for small families - with the two bedrooms downstairs and the open floor plan upstairs, you have plenty of space without it being too big. It is very well-equipped, with safety in mind, down to the child-proofing outlet covers, nightlights and emergency flashlights. The kitchen was well-supplied too - you can tell the owners spend time here.

There is a washer/dryer - detergent is supplied but only enough for one personal load, so if you might need to do more than that, you'll need to bring your own.

We enjoyed playing on the beach and walking into town (via the trail and the beach - wish we could have brought our bikes with us!). There's a lot to see on the peninsula, including the cranberry museum/demo farm and Cape Disappointment State Park, plus more beaches and Lewis & Clark sites on the Oregon side of the Columbia River.
