Pacific Beach house description

If you are searching for a dog friendly vacation home that is clean, affordable, newer construction, not in a 'development' and a stones throw from the beach - you ARE at the right place.

Seashell Beach Cottage is light and bright (no dark walls lots of window) with a friendly Seashell theme throughout. This is our personal second home away from home. Casual, comfortable and affordable best describe our newly constructed vacation home (2009) at the Northern border of Pacific Beach, Washington.

At Seashell Beach Cottage, you will enjoy a fully furnished kitchen with items including blender, crockpot, waffle iron, electric grill, mixer and cookie sheets. Linens, towels, dish soap, laundry soap and wash cloths are also provided. You need only bring your food, personal stuff, beach towels and things you wish to take to the beach.

We love dogs and have made this a very nice dog friendly home for responsible owners. Dogs love the beach and we are the closest vacation rental home to the beach entrance. We are also the only vacation rental with a fully fenced yard for privacy and a place for the kids and dogs to romp. We have a 6 foot wood fence on 3 sides and a see through 4 foot fence on the side that has the enchanted woods view. We also have the “Dog Wall of Fame” exclusively for our doggie guests. We hope your dog can join the “wall” after they experience the ocean.

Our sweet beach cottage is about 1360 square feet, but we have set it up to sleep a maximum of 8 adults (4 couples) and 4 children (under age 18) or 3 couples and 6 children. Two private bedrooms with queen beds, 1 Queen sofa bed in the living room and the loft bedroom is dormitory sty1e with one full bed and 1 twin bed and 1 twin bunkbed set and 1 roll out bed. Seashell Beach Cottage is also perfect for 1-2 couples and up to 2-4 dogs.(subject to approval***)

The upstairs master suite has a deck that faces the west. We can not see the ocean through the cluster of trees, but with the door left open, you can hear the sound of the surf as it gently lulls you to sleep. Seashell Cottage uniquely faces the “Enchanted Forest” with the famous “Tree Man” and many elves and fairies live in the forest brush below. It’s a hit for family story time by the outdoor campfire. Nothing like creating memories for the kids as you roast marshmallows and make Smores’s. Our gas grill, patio table and chairs makes having a family barbecue easy and fun.

Yes - we have TV, DVD, VCR and lots and lots of movies for all ages.
Yes - we have basic satellite service - Standard channels along with some extras like HGTV and shopping networks. For the serious sports gathering (we do live one block from the BEST sports bar on the North coast) - Seagate Pub. Local, eclectic and friendly.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: Love the little seaside community of Pacific Beach. Eclectic in nature but relaxed. My husband Rich and I have been coming to the North Washington Coast for over 25 years. After being steadfast campers in the mountains, we had a change of heart after being bitten by mosquitoes and hiking up hot rocky mountains. Since heading to the coast 25 years ago, we have stayed in just about every rental, motel, and hotel up the coast. From this knowledge, we have taken the good and the bad and have shaped several vacation homes in the area from ideas of guests and our own experiences and what we enjoy when getting away. When we rented, we always wanted a nice get away to travel to with our dogs, but never got it as dogs were not welcome in the 'nicer' places. We wanted to fill the gap and thus have created Seashell Beach Cottage for a more affordable get away with less of the high-end amenities, but all the cleanliness, comfort and proximity to the beach. We are a NON SMOKING property.

                      Why the Owner Chose Pacific Beach:
                      The Beach is fantastic, the town of Pacific Beach is eclectic. We love the personality of it. This little town has its own unique radio station. This is a great place to get together, spend some time bonding and get away from the hustle and speed of daily life. Sometimes in life 'Less is More'. We have found that our guests at Seashell Beach Cottage value the importance of spending quality time together in a relaxing place.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The benefits of this home is it is a great place to introduce children to the ocean yet we are in the relaxing surroundings of the trees. Pacific Beach access is a stones throw and we are walking distance to the naval base retreat which offers public dining, a great gift shop, movie theater and bowling alley. Our home was built by a local builder who knows how to create a true beach house with an efficient floor plan and quality materials. We welcome well behaved dogs with well trained owners. We love, train and own dogs ourselves, so we appreciate being able to take them with us. A nice walk down a newly paved road bordered by trees, is both refreshing and healthy as you reach the sandy Beach. This is a place to leave your worries behind. We have two TV's with DVD player, 1 VCR..lots of books, games and a DVD movie library for your enjoyment. We have added basic Satellite service with basic commerical channels and Wi-Fi for those who need that connection. Read, relax, rest and bond with family and friends - thats what we're about.
