  • Paradise!

    "We spent New Years Eve and New Years day at the cabin. When we arrived there was maybe 2 inches of snow on the ground. It was like driving to a post card. The cabin was warm and toast, the beds were so comfortable. Everything was so clean. And everything I wished I would have brought was there. We brought our dogs and they played with the neighbor dogs. The elk came by the morning of New Years Day. I hope we can come back in the spring or fall when we can have a fire in the pit and enjoy more under the trees, though we absolutely enjoyed our time in the cabin. Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your home. This is not a cabin, this is a home in the mountains."

  • Clean and cozy getaway !!

    "I rented this cabin as a surprise for my boyfriend for his birthday. It was so much more then I expected !! The interior pictures don't even begin to show its beauty. Kathy you did an awesome job with the decor. The kitchen is well organized, and stocked with the small appliances needed for what ever you plan on cooking, lots of utensils, lots of pots and pans, dishes, coffee cups, glasses,bowls toaster, microwave,crock-pot, blender and more. There is also lots of spices in the pantry ,Kathy is a great person to do business with !! she warned us of possible discoloration to the water in the hot tub due to its location etc. we found the water crystal clear and the tub itself clean and comfortable, and we really appreciated her up front honest approach. a pleasure to do business with! And YES we will return !!!!"

    "Cabin was nice. Hot tub was big and in good working order. Place was well maintained. We were pretty loud and had no complaints. Other cabins were really close but we're vacant when we visited. BBQ was out of propane but the owners sent someone right away to exchange it. Overall great place to stay."

  • Cozy cabin, great location

    "We stayed at Bob’s cabin over the weekend just a few weeks ago. Brought out of town guests to Mt. Rainier for some hiking and relaxation. Overall, we had a fantastic experience and hope to return. The cabin is homey and equipped with everything you need for a weekend or a few days away. The hot tub overlooking the river is a highlight and the kitchen has everything you need for basic meal prep. Love how organized the owners are too with the whole “welcome to the cabin” packet with a list of everything included. Makes packing/prep super easy. Only gripe of the weekend was the pluming (shower, bathroom) which backed up a few hours after we arrived HOWEVER, the owner was incredibly responsive and took the extra steps to be sure our experience was a positive one. We hope to return this winter as the cabin would be a great jumping off point for a local winter getaway at Crystal Mountain."

Rainier & St. Helens Travel Tips

Relax and Unwind with Southwest Washington Vacation Rentals

The scenic area of southwest Washington offers breathtaking scenery, sandy beaches, small port towns and all the activities of the Northern Cascade Mountains close by. The area is known for its fertile estuaries and centuries-old landmarks. Charted by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark in 1805, southwest Washington was considered the most desirable area to settle west of the Rocky Mountains. It now offers a delightful escape from city life for vacationers looking to relax and enjoy the spectacular local scenery.

Washington Vacation Rentals Offer a Variety of Things to Do

The Columbia River offers a host of activities before it reaches the Pacific Ocean, including fishing, swimming and hiking. The Hoh Rain Forest has scenic drives and walks amidst the moss-covered trees and hikers will enjoy the trails around Ledbetter Point State Park. Visitors can rent a boat on Lake Quinault and spend the day fishing, picnicking and relaxing on the water. Wildlife viewing is also plentiful in this unspoiled area.

The whole coastline of southwest Washington has miles of sandy beaches to be enjoyed. Ocean Shores beach has many organized activities for families such as sandcastle competitions, summer festivals, beach buggy rentals, horseback riding, swimming, and the usual surfing and watersports activities. Walking and beachcombing are popular activities at spectacular Ruby Beach with its piles of driftwood. Whale watching is an exciting activity in this area, and many companies at Westport and Ocean Shores offer boat trips to see the Pacific grey whales which migrate along the coast from March to May. More family fun can be enjoyed at the indoor Hoquaim YMCA Waterpark which offers a lap pool and racquetball and basketball courts.

The Climate and Weather at Southwest Washington Ocean Condos

Southwest Washington State is known for its mild but damp climate, largely affected by its proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Ocean shores has summer highs of around 70 F from July through September with very little rainfall in that season. Cooler fall days bring more rainfall when temperatures drop to the mid-50s F. The winters see up to 12 inches of rainfall but has mild temperatures of 47 F during the day and stays above freezing at night. The inland areas with higher elevations will have snow during the winter months and generally lower temperatures.

Getting to Your Washington Vacation Rentals

The nearest major airport to your southwest Washington lodging is the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport which is 93 miles from the center of Ocean Shores. The area is also easy to access by car from the I-5 which runs up the west coast from Sacramento, California to the Canadian border.

Popular Places to Visit from Southwest Washington Vacation Rentals

There is no shortage of places to visit from your southwest Washington lodging. The protected scenic area of the Columbia River Gorge is overlooked by the city of Vancouver, not to be confused with the Canadian city of the same name further north. The city of Aberdeen has a replica of Captain Gray's ship, the Lady Washington, which is considered the state's ambassador. Fans of musician Kurt Cobain can take a walking tour of his homes and haunts as Aberdeen was his hometown before he joined the rock band, Nirvana. Near Grayland beach, just south of Westport, is worth visiting for its spectacular oceanfront scenery and beachcombing opportunities.

Willapa Bay is a serene area to visit along the 26-mile Longbeach Peninsula with its superb opportunities for wildlife spotting. Gift stores and restaurants are worth stopping for at Ocean Park. Port Ilwaco has great art galleries en route to the North Head Lighthouse. Ocean Shores, Taholah and Point Grenville all have wonderful beaches for families to spend the day.

Further inland are the sightseeing opportunities at Mount St. Helen's, the National Forest and the National Wildlife Refuge.
