About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 6

Sandy's Beach Cottage:

If you're looking for the hustle and bustle of Ocean Shores, with a McDonalds, Hotels, Gas Stations and swarms of visitors there's bad news - this is not it. (But we are just 12 miles and 20 minutes North.)

The good news is that Sandy's Beach Cottage is a world apart.

Just North of where Copalis Beach meanders to the great Pacific Ocean, is a gated community of private cabins. Here you'll find us!

The home is far enough off the highway to prevent road noise, but surrounded by large trees and a very easy stroll down the lane to one of Washington State's most unspoiled beaches.

About Sandy's Beach Cottage:

Built in 2002, Sandy's cottage home has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The cottage sleeps up to 6 guests. You can have a few more, up to 8 max (but the other 2 will have to settle on couches.)

Because Sandy's Beach Cottage is on the newer side with a modern kitchen and bathroom. In the winter, the heating along with a tight wood stove, keeps the place toasty warm. The home is still cool enough in the warmer summer months.

We stock it with fresh towels and linens, plus pots, pans, plates and silverware for the kitchen. Yep, this means you can whip up your favorite meal, all you have to supply is your choice of food!

What Others Have to Say:

"The beach at this location is amazing! The softest, cleanest, most private beach we've been to in all of WA and OR. I'm not kidding. It's breathtaking!" - Simone

"Lovely little cottage located on a hillside with a nice walk down a winding road to the ocean." - Melissa

More About Sandy's Beach Cottage:

Bring your favorite book for the days you're looking to kick back and relax, the oversized windows provide a lot of natural light perfect for escaping into a novel. Not only are these windows giant, but they also face west meaning you'll get a glimpse of the ocean.

In the living room you'll find cozy furniture, a mounted television and of course that wooden stove we mentioned earlier. The living area is perfectly ideal for cozying up at the end of the night.

Make your way outside where you'll find yourself standing on the shaded deck. Although, we must say our guests do seem to prefer the fire pit (Sometimes officials disallow camp fires if summer is overly dry.)

Being in the trees we are somewhat protected from the winds which can kick up especially in winter. Maybe you are one of those folks who love to watch the storms - we sure do.

Even though the beach is closed to cars much of the year, you may see light planes land and take off from the beach. This is the only beach landing spot in the entire state. It's fun to watch for kids and adults alike.

About Copalis Beach:

When booking with any of our properties in Copalis Beach, you will have endless options for seaside activities. When bringing your friends or family along, we're sure that each and every one of you will find an adventure worth diving into.

Copalis Beach is a coast side community. Here the Copalis River meets the sea and it invites you to explore the wonderful seaside adventures.

Visiting during the warm weather? Get ready for clamming season! Copalis Beach is famous for razor clamming. Gather thousands and thousands of these delicious clams.

The warmer days also mean you can go fishing, beachcombing and walk the scenic beach hiking trails.

About By the Sea Vacation Rentals

In 2003 our kids said it was time to spend time together, to get out of the city to relax and have fun. The entire family agreed and so, on a very long weekend, we looked at every location on the Washington Coast.

We planned to buy a home and found some great houses but not in the spots we wanted. We found some great locations but not with the cottage like atmosphere we sought.

Then toward the end of the day of searching we stumbled into a little known, small gated community tucked into the trees, just North of where the lazy Copalis River meanders out to the mighty Pacific Ocean.

Many beaches on the Coast allow visitors to drive their cars along the sand. It really is a great way of people to discover long stretches of pristine beaches. But the Copalis Rock area had something special.

We learned that from April through Labor day, vehicles area prohibited on the the beach from the Copalis River to Iron Springs. (even though light planes are allowed to land on the Beach - the only beach landing spot in the entire state.)

Without cars the beach remains quiet and pristine.

The home we built - a cottage really - is just up a lazy lane from the beach, an easy stroll any time of the year. Being in the trees we are somewhat protected from the winds which can kick up especially in winter. Maybe you are one of those folks who love to watch the storms - we do.

The cottage we built is the perfect spot for your family to visit. You won’t hear cars from the road, but you will hear the waves from the Ocean.

In time, you too can rest and relax just as we do. It would be our pleasure to have you visit our getaway and be our guest.

This is a wonderful cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful cottage/cabin. Penny, the property manager is super responsive. It is ideal for a couple's getaway.

The driveway to the house and the road to the beach are steep walking with loose gravel and mud. If you are not fully able-bodied, this may be an issue.

Copalis beach is really something special. We found whole sand dollars after high tide and had the beach practically to ourselves. At night there were more stars than I ever remember seeing!

This is one of the best examples of why the Pacific Northwest is like no other place in the world.

The house and location are amazing

  • 5 of 5

The house and location are amazing. There's a short walk downhill to a wide, secluded beach. There was plenty room for our party of six.

We were able to enjoy home-cooked meals each night. Thankfully the house is at the top of the hill. The steep road was a little more than I am used to. If I get summer visitors again next year, then Penny's place will be the first on the list.

The house is at a quiet , beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

The house is at a quiet , beautiful location. It has all the basic appliances to make your stay comfortable.

The upstairs loft has 4 bunk beds but no doors or closet. It was a 10 mins walk to a beautiful beach with not too many people. Ideal for a quiet getaway with a small family. The house overall is not very big.

House was clean when we arrived . I believe the smell is from the cloth hide-a-bed sofa. We covered it with a large blanket we had brought with us and it was fine but should be replaced. Private beach access was great . Beds were comfortable and house well equipped . Bring extra TP and paper towels . A lot of movies and nice the kids had a tv upstairs

We arrived at the property at 5:30 pm and when we opened the door, the musty moldy smell was overwhelming. We opened windows, turned on fans and found incense in the house that we burned but the smell remained. The windows we opened were all dirty and we had to wipe cobwebs from around the TV screen and many other places around the house. The yard was poorly maintained. We did enjoy the beach which was a walk down a pretty good hill but was private and quiet once you got there. Probably would not choose this property again. Instructions and contract was very difficult to understand as well.

Nice Property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Sandy's Cottage. It was clean, the master bedroom bed was comfortable and it was a short walk to the beach, without crossing any streets, which is perfect for dogs. It was quiet. No one else on the beach and nice sand. We will return to stay there again.
