From our beach, just as the sun goes down and is almost disappearing into the water, a brief very bright flash of red light shoots out of the ocean. It is almost startling.
While the phenomenon is well known it is something you must see to believe. Although our cottage is a short walk to the beach and it is well worth the effort.
If you have not been to the Ocean Shores and North Beaches area before, you will be amazed at the flat wide beaches that run for miles in each direction. That means you can often have the beach all to yourself. Watch the birds swoop into the waves or the fisherman's boats out on the horizon.
Red Sky Cottage has been outfitted to make your vacation dreams come true. Bring your family and friends, like we do to rest, relax and have fun together.
You will want to sit on our nice deck and relax. Sit in the bubbling Hot Tub. There is a good quality barbecue and clean ocean air.
In summer, most visitors spend every night at our fire pit toasting marshmellows and telling stories. In spring and autumn, people flock to our beach to dig world famous razor clams.
There may be no more delicious food in the entire world.
The kitchen inside has a full range and oven, refrigerator freezer, microwave and all the pots and pans you need to whip up dinner for the family. There are plenty of dishes and silverware plus an efficient quiet dishwasher.
We have three nice bedrooms each with a Queen Sized beds you can stretch out in, and two handy bathrooms. You'll find the entire home clean, neat and tidy.
At night you can, of course, watch some television on our new flat panel TV or stretch out read a book, play games and rest aided by the quiet of the country side, but you'll be able to hear the ocean just a walk away.
But again the next morning the sun will alert you that its time again to walk to the beach, watch the waves and wait for that red sky all over again.
The house was perfect! Plenty of room for all 6 of us. The beds were quite comfortable as I am super picky in that area. The hardwood floors are beautiful! The hot tub was a nice feature as well. I love that even though there was a neighbor, we still felt secluded. The fire pit was a nice feature as well. The beach was close too. We spent time there, it was wonderful. On our last night there, we made it a point to watch the sun set and had literally a two minute drive back to the house.
We are already making plans to come back next year, we enjoyed the house and stay so much!
We had a wonderful unforgettable stay here with our four daughters ages 5, 3, 2 and 3 weeks old. It was the perfect location! Close(just one block) from the ocean which you can hear at night by the way but yet the road is so quiet, no traffic or cars at all. We felt like we were in our own little world! The house was immaculately clean and accommodating to all our needs. We can't wait to go back!
We had the most amazing trip thanks to this wonderful little house. The hot tub was clean and private, the extra towels were a bonus! The kitchen well stocked with any and all utensils I needed to make meals at "home" :). The hideaway bed was PERFECT for movie night. My kids were thrilled to have WIFI. We all know it can drizzle from time to time at the beach in Washington so to be able to tuck away into our own rooms on tablets or reading was great!
My cell happened to have no service, my carriers problem not the house's but with WIFI I was able to make calls and connect to email.
That being said we were able to truly unwind and enjoy the remote location while still being within walking distance to the beach. Sitting on the back deck in the morning enjoying a fresh cup of coffee was also a bonus, doing it in a bathrobe was icing on the cake.
To add a bit more, the house was very clean and inviting. The emails on access to the house and directions for checkout were extremely helpful and easy to follow. We ate in Ocean Shores one afternoon, just a few miles up the road and also snagged ice cream, and groceries in town as well and brought them back to the house with us. Saved a bundle and it was lovely having that option as opposed to eating out every day while we were there.
If you have intentions of truly enjoying your stay away from home, while having the comforts of home, this is the place!
We missed having internet.....but then it was nice not having the internet. HA! The house was in excellent shape, and we loved the Hot Tub ...even in the rain. We looked forward to an outdoor fire in the nice pit provided, but didn't have the weather to enjoy it.....Next time. Kites on the beach and a short jaunt to Ocean Shores. Nice.
The cottage is very nice, is fully equipped and very comfortable. I found the staff to be very friendly, helpful and professional. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the property and company to friends and family.
