Olympic Peninsula 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 through 2014 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.

Light, relaxing and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This is the most wonderful rental we have stayed in. It was so light with expansive windows showing the ocean at every turn. Everything was so well stocked (even had to-go coffee cups so you could take a cup of coffee out on an early morning ocean stroll without worry of spilling it). We took our 2 dogs and everything they could need was there as well - dog beds, dog bowls, towels and even dog sheets! I loved the outside shower so we could spray off sandy feet and sandy dogs. So nice to keep the sand out of the house. The hot tub was also wonderful to relax in with a view of the ocean as well. We were so in need of a relaxing vacation and this was the perfect fit.

Beautiful Home Away

  • 4 of 5

This is a well built beautiful home with lovely owners. Our group of 6-7 moms have stayed in many places along the coast over the last 7 years. We felt a bit on top of each other here but enjoyed our stay none the less. The home is advertised to sleep 10 but if we felt cozy at 7 then 10 would be underfoot. Our review is mixed because it is a beautiful home but really didn't suit our needs as well as we thought. No neighbors on one side is huge bonus! Loved the hot tub location off the kitchen/laundry room. The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed for making wonderful meals. Bring your own knives if that is important to you. Master suite was spacious and very comfortable. The en suite bathroom was problematic with bed partners that don't go to bed at the same time. The loft doesn't have shades on the street side windows or screening on the beach side so changing clothes was interesting. Wonderful sound system but didn't see a port to play our own tunes from our iPhones! Due to all the rain our access to the beach from the house was through a large really deep puddle so used the handy access down the road. The house is a bit loud due to the tile floor and open concept so those sleeping in the loft were up with the first riser. This house is really a 2 bedroom with those being the quieter areas of the home. Great parking space with wonderful wide stair case and entrance. I gave 4 stars just because it wasn't the very best for us but it would be for a smaller group or family and is a beautifully maintained home with responsive owners. Clearly the best house on the block!

Owner's Response: We're happy you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the privacy of our hot tub with no homes to the south. We take pride in our well-supplied kitchen and are glad you shared some wonderful meals while enjoying the seascape. We’re sorry the screen we provide in the loft for added privacy wasn't easy for you to find. We opted to leave the loft open for the spectacular ocean views. Thank you for sharing what you liked and we welcome you back anytime!

Absolutely the BEST!

  • 5 of 5

I have had the pleasure of being a repeat client at Sand Castlemore, because it truly is my favorite get-away vacation by far - and I am a well-traveled individual. I have never encountered the degree of detail to clients' comforts anywhere else in my travels! I can't emphasize enough what a pleasurable and beautiful experience it is to decompress at this beautiful home. Sand Castlemore offers impeccable cleanliness; spectacular views of the beach and ocean; a luxurious hot tub steps outside the dining room for amazing star lit evenings; a comfy fireplace for cool nights; games, books, magazines, DVD's for family nights; flashlights, beach towels, washer and dryer, firewood/kindling for campfires on the beach, soft, cuddly blankets; every special touch you could desire for pets - dog beds, sheets, towels, clean-up bags, and even 3 (THREE!) different kinds of treats! In addition, it is stocked with high end pots/pans/silverware/dishes/utensils; barware (there's a whole cabinet of glassware containing martini, wine, shot, beer and anything else glasses that you would need for a classy get together;paper products for the beach; baby/toddler dishes. They also provide free coffee, sugar/substitutes, tea, first-aid products, antacids, ibuprofen, etc., etc., etc. The hosts have thought of everything you would desire to make it the best vacation experience you've ever had.

There are many places to choose in Moclips, but this one is truly the best. Sand Castlemore has an unobstructed view to the north and west, which is rare in that area. It is steps away from the huge beach and a walk away from one of the best dining experiences at the Ocean Crest Resort, if you don't feel like cooking. There are many other dining options close by, as well as leisure/entertainment activities.

I can't emphasize enough that you will not regret staying here! Enjoy your stay - you will definitely return. :-)

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights here with another couple and two young children. We all enjoyed ourselves. Spacious, comfortable, clean and so convenient to the beach. Enjoyed beachcombing and relaxing in the hot tub and by the gas fireplace. I absolutely would recommend this home and plan to return again soon.
