Thank you for your great house. Everything was fantastic at Long Beach. We had a perfect weekend; sunny, blue skies, no rain or wind, and great clamming! Your house was wonderful and a very tranquil setting.

Coming back for a 3rd stay soon

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for accommodating us with your beautiful beach house for our week at the beach. The weather was beautiful, the view was fabulous and the accommodations were clean and very homey. It was nice to have room to stretch our legs and not step on toes. We were able to play games, have a nice bonfire, take long walks on the beach...But our favorite was watching the sunsets & sunrises from the deck. Thank you so much for our stay, and we look forward to checking in again soon.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about how wonderful this property is. The house is large and has all the necessary comforts. Everything is in good shape with much remodeling.

The property is huge and secluded. It has a fire pit with lawn furniture. A wonderful secluded trail provides a 10 min walk to the Long Beach shores.

The most important for us is that the house and property is dog Friendly. For well behaved dogs, you need not have them on a leash on the property. Our pooches were able to mingle among us freely while outside including the trail to the beach. They even have a doggie gate on the wonderful deck off the house.

Although secluded, this place is centrally located offering easy access to many of the quaint towns in the surrounding areas.

We so enjoyed our stay here. We inadvertently left our coats hanging on the back of the door on departure. The owner was so nice and had them immediately mailed back to us when we told him. He was generously in phone contact with us from the time we booked our trip. You just can't go wrong with this place and I highly recommend it. We travel to this area often and will now always stay here.

Great Fall Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location to spend a few days walking the beach while staying in a wonderful cabin. It was very clean and comfortable. A bottle of wine welcomed us and I felt like I had walked into a friends home. Rain was in the forecast but the sun came out long enough for several long walks on the beach each day. Enjoyed sitting on the deck listening to the ocean and the sounds of nature. Also enjoyed the rain and wind and the smells of the beach. My dog and I will be back again for sure !

Lovely spot

  • 2 of 5

Wonderful relaxing weekend, lovely spot for a get away however the website and home need some updating. You cannot see the beach or water from the house as the photos show. The steep stairs to two bedrooms should be noted, some folks have difficulty with stairs as I do. The coffee maker and kitchen cookware are in dire need of replacement and the furniture with boards under the cushions are not the most comfortable. All in all the house is roomy and works well...just needs some upgrades...especially for the cost we paid. Don't expect to catch a Seahawk service very limited.

Owner's Response: We rarely reply to reviews, but this one warrants clarification. We have been renting this house for 11 years to literally thousands of guests & this is the first mention of the stairs being steep. There is nothing unusual about the grade/angle of the stairs of this home. They can be seen in one of the pictures of the living room. For the TV, we have over 100 quality hand selected channels via Roku streaming. Not only does it include premium services, such as HBO, Showtime, Starz, Netflix, & more, but also every network channel. All major network feeds are from Seattle & each has a "live" component, so you can indeed watch the Hawks. We rent out the house 100% during the summer months & it's possible some of the cookware needs replacing after numerous large summer groups. We have backups in our shed for each item & try to make the necessary replacements, as needed. Just before the summer, we put in all new plank flooring on the 1st floor & new carpeting is coming next month. The ocean view varies depending on the weather. Sometimes it's crystal clear & other times the marine layer does not allow a great view. We inform all our guests that if you have questions/concerns please let us know. Unfortunately, this guest did not contact us during their stay.

Awesome House!! So cozy, clean, & fun!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay at this rental. I would recommend this rental to everybody wanting to stay at Long Beach Wa. or surrounding areas. The owner made our stay so perfect by offering to make it just that. From the beginning of the rental process to end, he was there for us if we had any concerns. Our first impression walking into the cabin was "how cozy". It was clean and provided everything we might need. The house is centrally located so we could walk everywhere. Having a driveway was great; to keep our cars off the street and easy to pack and unpack our stuff. For me, as a Mom, I felt safe with my family. I loved being in the middle of everything but still having our privacy. The fenced yard was great while we sat at the picnic table, BBQ ing and playing games. My little dog loved running in and out. We played bean bag toss and sat in our lawn chairs enjoying the sunshine. Being next to putt putt golf made it fun and the music did not bother us at all. We would walk to the beach and easily make it back for lunch or snacks. My family loved it and we will be back. I hope u all share this great experience being at the beach in this remarkable little house and leave knowing u made great memories too.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is situated in the best possible place: one block from the main strip so that our older family members could stroll to the shops downtown and one block from the beach and the Discovery Trail so that the more physically adventurous among us could bike, run, and walk. We could drive to Deception Pass State Park with its gorgeous views, beaches, and trails in under ten minutes. The grocery store is about a two-minute drive away. We were completely comfortable in the cabin: plenty of room to lounge, cozy beds, fully stocked kitchen, big table for meals. And the fenced yard meant our dogs could do their business without us having to take them on the leash. I highly recommend it!
