About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Saltwater Cottage is located a hop skip and jump from the sandy shores of the mighty Pacific. We have renovated thishouse into a perfect beach getaway. Complete with everything you would have at home. Just bring your clothes food and beach attitude! Clean open concept living with 2 bedrooms ~queen beds, a nice bath with larger walk in shower and a kitchen with all the utensils for your cooking pleasure........Our availability calender is updated every single day. If it dosent have a red reservation box, its most likely available!

Just north of Saltwater is Analyde Gap beach approach. In a brief walk (about 1/3 mile) you will find yourself at the oceans edge. Or, if your packing up all of your beach bum accessories for the whole day, throw it in your car and drive! You can take your car on the beach here in Washington State. On the North Beach, we have the most spectacular stretch of unspoiled beach you could imagine. Beach combing, shell hunting, and imaginative driftwood pieces abound and are easily found here.Surf fishing for perch is popular at PB, then there's also surf kayaking!

If you would rather shop, we suggest that you come up to Seabrook and check it out! Steve and I both own businesses there. Steve has a great grocery store, Front Street Market. You will find most every thing you need for your groceries there. A great deli with a wonderful selection of sandwiches and deserts, too. I run and operate Seaworthy home, a great little interiors store..Stop by and say hello! We love to meet our guests! You can rent bikes, or walk around and check out fun shopping, great parks and terrific trails, too..

A half hours drive south will bring you to the city of Ocean Shores, which has a movie theater, grocery store, casino gambling, more shopping and fun choices for kids like scooters, bumper boats, etc. Back up north there are great hiking trails at Lake Quinault. Visit the historic Lake Quinault Lodge, check out some gigantic old growth cedar trees and a beautiful rainforest in the Olympic National Forest.

After a fun day out exploring, head on back to the Saltwater where you will find ample new thirsty white towels, washcloths, shampoo and soaps in the linen closet in the bathroom. Kitchen utensils, dish and washer soap, pots, pans, dishes and glasses are aplenty. Attention to detail was a must when furnishing our little cottage, Beachy and relaxed is the style, for ease of cleaning and an un-fussy look. Cozy new bedding, pillows, sheets and blankets will round out a wonderful day with the ocean outside lulling you to a relaxing nights sleep. If you are any kind of star gazer, Pacific Beach has the best night sky you could imagine. BA zillion stars can keep you awake for hours.

If hiking and biking is your thing, there are wonderful short trips from the cottage to take in the majesty of the Olympic Peninsulas unique and unmistakeably Northwest climes.

We have tried very hard to make this a perfect getaway especially for families, couples, girlfriends retreats, crafting weekends or a quiet place for you to get re-energized by yourself. Books, games, cards and blocks will busy the children the closet in the back bedroom. It is full of fun just for them! If you are bringing your pet, there's doggie towels for those salty wet runs on the beach. We know dogs love it here, too. Cellular service is spotty, We have Sprint and it seems to be ok but At&T may have to walk around outside to try and get service..

The Saltwater is a cozy cottage for your beach getaway.. We will leave the light on for ya!

About Lisa McElliott

Steve and I have always loved Pacific Beach and now are lucky to have this cute cottage to call our own. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Lisa McElliott purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Lisa McElliott chose Pacific Beach

Pacific Beach is like the show Northern Exposure. Fun, laid back, quirky and completely relaxing. We are from Hoquiam but now live in Portland Oregon, so its a perfect getaway for us!!

What makes this cottage unique

It is just a quick walk or even quicker drive to the beach or town for a coffee or a little shopping. There is also nothing like listening to the waves lull you to sleep at night. People also crave the way we decorate our cozy little cottage. A half hours drive to the Olympic Peninsula will get you smack dab in the middle of the rainforest, a must see while you are here.

Another plus is that Seabrook is just up the hill on Highway 109 south. This great little beach town has a lot of shopping, a terrific pub style restaurant and biking and hiking trails all over. A great place to take the family for a fun day, there is always something going on at Seabrook! Also, Steve and I both own businesses there. Stop by the great Front Street Market, where Steve will be found working his store, there are great desserts, a wonderful deli and a lot of selection for you weekend food cravings. I am at Seaworthy Home most days, you can find me at my interiors shop. Stop by and see us!

Comfortable and quiet beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Saltwater Cottage. The house itself is situated about a 10 minute walk to the beach (or you can drive down if you wish). Inside is comfortable decorated, lots of kitchen utensils and cookware if you choose to do some cooking, and the beds / bedding were very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again when coming back to the area.

More than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

Saltwater Cottage had everything we needed.It is in a great location, easy to find, close to the beaches and towns. We were so impressed with the amenities provided: well equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, cozy living room, and comfy beds.Everything was clean and nicely decorated! We really appreciated relaxing there after spending time by the ocean and sight seeing. This was our first time experience with a V.R.B.O. and were not disappointed. We highly recommend this fun ,cozy place!

A Real Beach Cabin--Quiet, Relaxing, Peaceful Setting

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place to enjoy Pacific Beach and surrounding areas. It was close enough to travel to Ocean Shores, enjoy the hustle and bustle, and then return to peace and quiet. There are close neighbors but still a quiet neighborhood. The cottage is very cozy. We had perfect weather!! Will definitely visit again!!

Relaxing Stay at the Saltwater

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed our relaxed six-day stay in this beautifully decorated, comfortable, bright & cheery cottage. The open floor plan makes this home feel very roomy, despite its small size. We all had space to do our own thing or enjoy something together.

Minutes away from downtown Pacific Beach, Moclips & Seabrook, this house is situated on the most elevated portion of Pacific Beach, so there are no worries of any tsunami-related trouble. Due to the house's elevation, the 5-10 minute walk to the beach is a somewhat steep trek down the beach access road, but driving is always an option if walking is problematic.

A charming, rustic picket fence runs along the road-side of the house. The yard is rather spacious compared to nearby vacation rentals, providing some shade and plenty of space for children to run and play, with trees providing a nice privacy barrier along the road and one side of the house. The neighborhood was very quiet during our extended Labor Day stay. Adirondack chairs in the front yard seat four. There's also a sunken fire pit in the front yard, but be sure to check if there's a burn ban in place before you use it - we had a wonderful beach campfire instead after watching a GORGEOUS sunset.

Hose off the beach sand with the garden hose in the front yard before entering through the tiled main entrance where you can hang up all your beach things and toss your beach towels and attire into the large washer before entering into the carpeted living room. Happy birds sing in the trees and hummingbirds enjoy the flowers in the window boxes.

The kitchen is well-stocked and spacious, providing all you need for cooking and baking for up to four. The beds are deliciously comfortable with ample pillows for those who need more than two! A roll-out twin bed in master closet may come in handy as well as a pack 'n play in the 2nd bedroom closet. The couch cozily sat four of us for movie nights.

The Saltwater Cottage is across from the very hospitable Sandphifer Gallery, where we enjoyed beautiful driftwood sculptures and incredible animal drawings from a talented husband-wife duo. Unlike many galleries, well-mannered children are welcomed, enjoyed, and feel respected at the Sandphifer Gallery.

A side-note for individuals very sensitive to airborne mold and mildew: visiting this older cottage and this part of the Washington coast may not be an ideal choice.

I highly recommend Saltwater Cottage and Pacific Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I spent three nights at Saltwater Cottage. I could have spent the summer! It is so clean and bright with crisp colors and a beach theme. The beds, pillows and bedding were so comfortable. We slept well! The red geraniums were icing on the cake! I loved everything about the cottage! It is only a moment and you are on the beach where cars are allowed! Across the street is The wonderful Sandphifer Gallery, with magnificent art work hand made by the owners. In the town of Pacific Beach is The Kite Shop where you can purchase beach toys and sweatshirts. Bring books to share as there is a used book shelf. I loved everything about the stay a dan the cottage!
