Overview

Olympic Peninsula 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.

About Emily Compton

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

Why Emily Compton chose Olympic Peninsula

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

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.

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend a weekend, even with the rain and wind going on outside almost all weekend it was great to relax in front of the fireplace. When the weather stopped in the evening you could hear the waves crashing in the distance. Bring your own groceries (dbl the price up the street). Plenty of supplies in kitchen. And even our dog enjoyed just hanging out. We hope to come back again!

Thank you for a beautifully decorated, very comfortable cottage with washer and dryer also!

Our family enjoyed your place immensely!. So fabulous to watch a Pacific sunset! We hopefully can return in the future and your place will be on the top of our list. We appreciated how clean everything was as well. God bless!

Great cottage by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful stay at Sand Bucket. The cottage is greatly located close to multiple beaches in the quaint little town. The cottage amenities are amazing and the house has everything anyone might need or want on the holiday. The kitchen is fully stocked and we ate all our meals in. The decor is well thought out and beautiful. The booking process was simple, and owners were easy to reach and pleasant to deal with. We will happily recommend the cottage to others and would definitely consider to be back. Thank you!

Perfect beach cottage - we'll be regulars!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sand Bucket Cottage when we wanted to whisk my 82 year old mother-in-law and her pup away for the weekend. It was perfect! The house has all the amenities you would want. We cooked all but one our meals there, and the kitchen had everything we needed. The house was spotlessly clean. The furnishings were cute and comfortable. My mother-in-law raved about everything in the house, and said would like that comfortable bed for her own. The back deck has morning sunshine, and we switched to the afternoon deck to soak up the rays around noon. The beach was nearby (for most it would be a short walk, but we drove because of my MIL), and I enjoyed two long morning beach walks myself, coffee in hand. The nice owners of the soon-to-be-opened art gallery next door invited us over to preview and we had a lovely visit with them. I received a call from Rob, the owner of Sand Bucket Cottage, on the day we were headed to the cottage saying there was a problem with the cable which would mean we wouldn't have cable TV or wifi. I told him it wasn't a problem for us. He asked me to let him know how they could make up for the inconvenience financially, and I told him to not worry about it, we don't mind. After our stay, we were contacted by Emily offering us a future weekend at the cottage, free of charge. This kind offer was beyond our wildest expectations. Even though we had already been recommending Sand Bucket Cottage to our friends and family following our fun weekend, I will now come here to recommend the cottage to anyone contemplating a quiet peaceful weekend at the coast. You won't be disappointed in the house, or its thoughtful owners.

Very Pleasant

  • 4 of 5

Extremely clean and so cute. Great enclosed Deck in the front, perfect for leaving the Dogs outside by themselves. Very nice yard. The only thing I'd add is a screened storm door so you could look outside without bugs invading. Rather long walk to the Beach but not unpleasant. No ocean view but we could tell it was close.
