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 Olympic Peninsula

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!

Relaxing, restorative, retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We (4 people friends, 1 doggie friend) headed out to the Saltwater cottage for a weekend writing retreat. The house and the location were a perfect haven. We were able to get some work done with peaceful breezes flowing through the house. We were also able to break things up with walks on the beach, heading down to town for some ice cream, and delicious meals cooked out on the deck. Lisa & Steve are super responsive and have made the house comfortable and inviting. We'll definitely be back!

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our two young boys (ages 5 and 1) and our two yorkies had an amazing time at Saltwater Cottage. We were pleasantly surprised how well stocked the kitchen was. We had everything we needed with only our groceries to bring. The beds were so comfy, I think I fell asleep the second my head hit the pilllow. I loved the beach theme throughout the cottage and I especially appreciated the washer&dryer in the "mud room". We spent some time on the beach (which was a short drive) and enjoyed a campfire every night of our stay. My husband had just returned from Guam so coming to the Cottage was a nice getaway for our entire family. Thank you, Lisa, for everything!! You are amazingly wonderful! We would love to come back next year!

Felt right at home

  • 5 of 5

We (single mom, pre-teen daughter, daughters friend, our doggies) stayed a week at Saltwater. The cottage owners have decorated with the same style as their shop at Seabrook, which was a treat in itself. I chose this rental, because of the price and the well put together look. This cottage truly does have about everything you'll need from seasonings to use in the kitchen, to marshmallow roasting sticks for the fire pit, to dog towels, treats and dog doo bags. We met both of the owners at their shops in Seabrook and they were the kind of people you would want to hangout/visit with. I have T-Mobile and didn't get service at the cottage, which was fine with me, but my brother thought we were due home sooner than we actually were, (he never listens) and called Lisa (the owner) worried out of his mind. She came to checked on us and offered me her phone to call and let him know we were fine. We've been coming to this area since 2008, because I love Seabrook and all it has to offer; the beaches are not crowded, you can actually find sand dollars, some shells and other fun stuff on the beach, and you can drive a few miles or a few hours to many amazing places. I will definitely stay again. P.S. When you visit Seabrook a mile or so from the cottage, you have to check out all of the shops. They always have something new and different.
