Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8-14)

Pacific Beach is the perfect place to retreat to for some valuable family time. With peaceful pristine beaches and natural ocean beauty.

Imagine . . . no sound greater than the lapping waves.

Nearly every room has stunning ocean views in our large four-bedroom house about 200 feet from the water. With a large front yard and quiet streets, there is more to do here than you will have time for!

Just think . . . after you are done roasting marshmallows on the beach, return to the living room with a welcoming warm fireplace and comfortable sofas and chairs. The perfect spot for family games or read-aloud time.

A dream vacation house . . .

The house has a gorgeous fully stocked kitchen with:

Microwave

Electric Coffee Pot

Espresso Machine

Dishes

Silverware

Glasses

Pots and Pans Baking Ware

Crock pot

Waffle Iron

Griddle

Tea Kettle

Baking Utensils

Grater and Peeler

And more . . .

All you need to do is stop on the way and do your own shopping for food.

Large Family? Maybe your family isn't but you are coming with relatives, friends, and/or neighbors.

There's a large oak dining room table that easily seats 12.

Oh, you don't want to cook on vacation? I fully understand if you don't' want to fix meals or wash dishes. . .There is everything from fast food take out to very affordable family dining within 20 minutes.

You can do as much or as little as you want!

The large bathroom has a tub with shower for you to clean up in after your days in the sand. Upstairs there is a sink and mirror for tooth brushing and face washing. Rinse off all your beach treasures in the outdoor sink. Then set them aside to dry right there too.

There is a lovely large master bedroom downstairs with a king-size bed. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a comfy futon on the landing. Two of the bedrooms have queen beds and one has two twin beds as well as an additional futon mattress.

Imagine crawling into your bed with fresh sheets; feel the smoothness on your skin after a fun-filled day. Each bed has high-quality mattresses, linens and comforters for your ultimate restful vacation.

Grab your mocha and your book and linger on the front porch. Imagine the beautiful view with the privacy for your children to run and play in the large grass yard after you are done flying kites, building sandcastles, beach combing or exploring.

We tend to book out solid during the Peak Season and we'll be nearly full by April. Don't miss out. Pull out your calendar right now and reserve your vacation time today.

We provide the perfect place! Family vacations are proven to be effective for 'happily ever afters.' Schedule your trip today and you will go home with a happier family with tons of memories each person will enjoy for a lifetime.

This week would be worth $3000.00! It would be a super deal at $1500.00! I can assure you that you can have the family vacation of your dreams without chronic nightmares and insomnia because you spent more than you can afford. You won't pay $1500.00 or even $1000.00!

We guarantee our home to be clean, comfortable, and family friendly!

Vacations don't have to be expensive!

To fly the family to a sunny location, go to Disneyland, or visit some historical spot will cost you well over $1000.00 - not to mention the travel time and convincing your husband to go. When it is all said and done, you'll be lucky to get out without spending a couple of thousand dollars.

Escape the crowds; get peace, enjoy serenity - Pacific Beach has all this! Absorb the wonder of the expansive coast line, seashells, seashores, sandy beaches, from the comfort or your home away from home.

What happened to . . . 'and they lived happily ever after?'

Spend time together making memories -

kick back, slow down, and let the kids run.

REMEMBER YOUR OWN FAMILY MEMORIES. They are the family times spent together.

Give your children memories that will last a lifetime just as yours have. Family time knits lasting relationships!

About Lorrie

We started going to this beach as a family and loved it so much we bought a beautiful landmark house that the core was originally built 1910. We have updated, overhauled, and carefully remodeled keeping the integrity and charm of the original while utilizing the modern conveniences of today.

We love our visitors and try to make our homes comfortable and beautiful for you to enjoy as your home away from home.

Lorrie purchased this house in 2004

Why Lorrie chose Olympic Peninsula

We love the location! Two and a half hours from Seattle is close enough for a weekend visit and far away from the daily chores of everyday life..

What makes this house unique

When the long-time owner of this home wanted to sell it to us, we jumped and bought it without it ever being listed on the market. Some of the things that made us fall in love with this house were:

~ the awe-inspiring sunsets

~ sweeping ocean views

~ seaside beauty

~ a clean beach right out your door

~ large square footage making large parties a snap

~ additional lots for protected views

Now families also love our home for the gorgeous yet comfortable furnishings, beautiful and well-supplied kitchen, comfortable beds, and . . . the jaw-dropping open vista views.

Today your family can join our list of families who return year after year for their beach vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house is the perfect place for a family reunion. The beautiful kitchen is furnished with everything and the huge table with plenty of chairs is great for sharing food. The beds were more than comfortable, even for my grandparents. And, the view really is spectacular.



I was concerned about a large group and one bathroom but it worked out with no problem at all. Just like the owner (who was very nice and helpful) said, we think we need more than one bathroom but not everyone needs to use it at once. One bathroom with 11 people was no big deal.



We are so grateful to have found a place that fits us all and welcomes big groups. My sister and her family already rented it for this summer too and we'll all be back next year.

Amazing home and service!

  • 5 of 5

We came here for a much-needed week away. The home was super comfortable, the owners super friendly, and everything was just perfect. The town is quiet, the access to the beach close, and the beach itself was quiet, resulting in a wonderfully relaxing week at the ocean.

wonderful getaway for family and friends

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the beach house. It was clean, well equipped, and the beach was so close!

Everything was perfect, only communication with the owner was not functional the week before arrival.

Thank you so much for letting us use your house!

Perfect and restful week-end!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely week-end here with family and friends! Loved the open, cozy feeling of this charming cabin...each room is so beautifully decorated and unique! Our large family was able to eat and then play games around the huge table. We weren't lacking for anything while we stayed there. We even needed special accommodations and the owners were so easy to work with! Loved the washer/dryer/mud room for all the little sandy feet. We will most definitely be back!

Comfortable Home, Beautiful Sunsets

  • 3 of 5

I wasn't sure what to expect due to the conflicting reviews that had been posted. Overall, I feel like the property was priced appropriately for the accommodations that were provided.

The weather was gorgeous, so we did not have to utilize the fireplace insert or heat unit, but I was surprised to see an extension cord running to the fireplace insert. I wouldn't use an extension cord with an electric heater in my own home, let alone in a rental property.

We did not have any concerns regarding the proximity to the beach (which was unbelievably gorgeous!!). It was a short walk, and not difficult to navigate (even for my parents who are in their late 70's). We got up at sunrise and took walks on the beach, and then also captured lots of pictures of the amazing sunsets. We did not see any seals, but had fun watching all of the birds. We spent the last afternoon of our visit relaxing and flying a kite on the beach (purchased at the local kite shop).

The only frustration I have had is with customer service. I did not expect to pay the full amount at time of reservation -- I have rented several other properties using Home Away / VRBO and have never been charged more than 50% down at the time of reservation, with the balance due 30 days before arrival. There was no communication regarding when the check-in information would be provided (other than in the Home Away app that I downloaded, which said the information would arrive by email 'shortly' before arrival). I did finally receive the check-in information the day before my departure (after I emailed asking for the information). I could have started requesting it sooner -- but I didn't know when it was late/missing, since I didn't know when to expect it.

I did receive notification 2 weeks after our stay that the full refund for our damage deposit had been processed, which seems like a pretty reasonable turnaround. But, again the communication is lacking. I am not sure what it means that the refund has been 'processed'. How long should it take to arrive? Is it coming through PayPal? Almost two weeks have passed since I received the notification, but I have not yet received the refund. I have tried contacting the owners, but have not received any response to the emails that I have sent.

Pacific Beach has one of the most beautiful WA beaches with the majestic Pacific Ocean and a tributary, Joe Creek. It is mesmerizing to watch the surf and salt water mix with the river. The razor clams in front of the house are phenomenal too! The town of Pacific Beach is quaint with some gift shops, restaurants, and the all-important 3 coffee shop stops. Our favorite is at the High Flyer Kite Shop on Main Street where they are $2! Try Scott's own invention, The Creation, and tell him the Flem's sent you. Then walk to Emily's Confections (the pink and white building) also on Main for fresh baked cinnamon rolls, raspberry turnovers, croissants, and more. Go twenty minutes south along the coast to see Ocean Shores where there all sorts of touristy attractions, more shopping, and restaurants. A drive out to the point is well worth it and a walk on the boulder strewn beach is fun for climbers and leisure walks. Head north instead to visit the gorgeous beaches in the Indian Reservation, the Olympic Rain Forest with ferns as big as people and a tree you can walk through, and, don't forget the Roosevelt Elk.
