Long Beach Peninsula Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The name itself, 'A Tranquil Retreat', describes to a tee, our fully furnished non-smoking/no pets townhouse located near the end of a quiet road where all that can be heard is the sound of the surf! We are steps from the paved Discovery Trail and the short path to the beach. Beautiful sunset and ocean views await you from the living room and upper deck. Three block walk to restaurants, shops, and activities in downtown Long Beach. If you are looking for a party house, than this isn't it at all . . . a neighborhood couldn't be any quieter than this!

Upstairs is an open floor plan with living room, dining area with seating for six, a 1/2 bath, and a fully stocked kitchen. The upstairs deck has a propane BBQ grill, and an ocean view. There is a queen sofabed in the living room. Downstairs is the master bedroom with a walk-in closet, an electric fireplace, and a deck that has a front row seat of the famous Bolstad beach approach kite and fireworks displays during 4th of July, the Kite Festival in August, and New Years Eve. There is a Parklane King bed with premium hotel grade mattress/boxsprings. On this same floor there is a guest room with a Parklane Queen bed, with premium hotel grade mattress/boxsprings. Bedbug protection on all mattresses. In addition, a full bath with tub and shower, a washer and dryer, and a one car garage are located on the first floor.

Free Wi-Fi; HD TV in living room; DVD player, and stereo are provided for your comfort and pleasure. There are board games and puzzles for those rainy days at the beach, and a propane fireplace for those chilly evenings in the living room. Maximum six people, including children. No pets, no smoking. No RV's or trailers due to limited space unless parked on north side of street.

About The Owner

My husband and I have been coming to Long Beach for annual 'retreats' since we met in 1984. Because we spend so much time at the beach, we decided to buy a home here.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2010

Why The Owner chose Long Beach Peninsula

When we saw the view from this townhouse and the quietness of the neighborhood, we knew that this was the place. It is truly a tranquil retreat!

What makes this townhome unique

Quiet, peaceful, serene, home away from home with a view! Far away from the every day noise, stress, and gridlock. All you hear is the sound of that surf! What you see is ocean and beautiful sunsets. Our 'Ahhhh' moments. . . Keeps the blood pressure down. Can't get any better than this!

Guestbook comments from the owner

we wouldn't stay anywhere else if we go to Long Beach...and the neighbor on the other side got the garbage can chained up so that it cannot be accessed by the bear....Oh! We saw deer grazing right across the road from us....all in all it was magnificent!!!

Peaceful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Tranquil Retreat, is a perfect name for this rental!! We enjoyed a family vacation with age range from 73 to almost 2 , 5 adults and one toddler this place fit us all!! It is a very comfortable home, very clean, very well stocked, very peaceful, very quiet, very close to town, very beautiful view, very perfect!!

Beach is right over the dune, coffee on the deck every morning watching the waves looking at the bald eagles and the deer. We stayed here for 4 days I wish it could of been for a month, we all agreed this was a perfect place for our family and we would come back again in a heartbeat. Cathy the owner was very easy to work with and responded to e-mails very quickly. I can't wait until we get to come back again, thank you so very much Cathy for sharing your home with my family we really appreciate it and all the extras in the home!

Thank you again and again for sharing your wonderful home with my family, we all loved it.

Best Regards

Tina W

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a semi annual women's getaway and stayed at A Tranquil Retreat for 3 nights. The weather was wet and blustery but the condo was wonderful. We enjoyed seeing and hearing the ocean from the condo. It is beautifully maintained and wonderfully equipped. I love the high ceilings and wonderful light. It was the perfect place. We definitely would hope to stay here again. Thank you!

Wonderful Condo for relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just spent seven nights at A Tranquil Retreat, and were delighted with the accommodations, and all the 'extras', such as a garage (wonderful when it was raining), night lights, well-stocked kitchen, comfortable bed and linens, plenty of towels, a table for our jigsaw puzzle, and the gas fireplace. We loved being able to see the crashing waves from the deck, and twice spotted a mature Bald Eagle sitting on a post not far away. The proximity to the beach and boardwalk was wonderful. Even though we had rain and chilly temps six days (our last was sunny and warm) we were still able to get out and enjoy everything from Long Beach north to Leadbetter and Willapa Parks, and south to Astoria and Cannon Beach. Enjoyed watching the clam diggers and seeing the ships lights at night, and the great places to eat. We are already talking about a return trip in spring or fall. Thanks for sharing your Retreat with us!!

Beautiful Home in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This 2 story townhouse is exceptional!!! I use this site quite often for travel to various locales, this is THE BEST I've stayed in so far. Beautiful inside and out. Plenty of space. Pictures truly capture the interior space, its clean, fresh and did I say CLEAN? 5 stars is exactly what you get. Stocked with every single thing you may have forgotten to bring for your stay. All the little details are perfectly executed. From laundry soap portioned out for you, to a full spice rack, all the dishes you could need. Hosted a dinner party at last minute for 6 and had every single item I needed to prepare the meal. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Mere steps from the beach, a block from all Long Beach has to offer in shopping. Cozy, clean and just PERFECT!!! If you are looking through homes now on your search for where to stay at Long Beach, Wa. STOP!!!! And look no further. You will love this place. I even used the garage for my car. My only regret? I should have stayed longer. We will be back.

Fantastic Townhome - Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very spacious and has all the comforts of home - you can tell it is not just a rental and is, instead, a retreat for the owners as well. With the 2 bedrooms and full bath downstairs, there is tons of space in the upstairs for the living/kitchen/half bath. The building only has 3 units in it (this one being an end unit) with a sister building of another 3 units next to it, so it's not one of those massive developments and it is in a very quiet neighborhood just a few blocks from the main drag in Long Beach which made walking to to the delicious Cottage Bakery everyday too easy. The building sits at a bit of a perpendicular angle to the coast, so the living room deck looks across the dunes and part of the ocean while the patio off the master bedroom (as well as the kitchen window) looks over the dunes towards the main Bolstad beach approach. There are screens on the patio/windows, so we were able to leave them open and enjoy the sounds of the ocean while lounging in the living room. The walk to the beach and/or discovery trail is very short and just past the condo as it is near the end of a dead end road shortly before the discovery trail. We were even treated to deer wandering through the neighborhood on more than one occasion during our stay. Corresponding and booking with the owner was easy and pleasant. You really cannot go wrong with this rental.

A great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at A Tranquil Retreat! We spent 3 nights in this lovely vacation home that was just a 5 minute walk over the dunes to the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The property was extremely clean and had all the amenities that we could have hoped for- from plenty of plush towels, extra pillows and blankets and a kitchen full of cooking essentials. We had 3 children, ages 6-9, in our group and the close location to the beach, the Discovery Trail and to the town of Long Beach were all huge bonuses for us. Also, the owners were great to work with and helped to make our stay there effortless. We will certainly return to this lovely property in Long Beach!
