About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

The Surf Perch is a beautifully renovated two bedroom loft in Ilwaco, Washington, at the southern end of the Long Beach Peninsula. Located on the upper (2nd) floor of an historic building in downtown Ilwaco, this light-and-bright space has been completely renovated and includes everything you'd expect from a luxury vacation rental.

The Surf Perch is located less than 5 minutes from the beach by car and about three blocks from the picturesque Port of Ilwaco. Walk out the front door and you're literally steps away from galleries, shops, restaurants, museums, pubs, hiking trails, antique stores, as well as several excellent charter fishing outfits. You're at the doorstep of all the Long Beach Peninsula has to offer.

For the foodies... cranberries and oysters are two of the Peninsula’s biggest exports. Cranberry bogs can be seen all along the Peninsula’s back roads, while Willapa Bay is home to the purest-tasting oysters anywhere; you can find them on most local menus. And don't forget the super-fresh seafood right off the boats in the Port of Ilwaco. Visit one of the many excellent local restaurants - several within easy walking distance - to sample the local bounty for yourself.

Explore the Lewis and Clark National Historic Park, visit two historic lighthouses at Cape Disappointment State Park, kayak on several amazing waterways, hike the Discovery Trail, go charter fishing, hunt for antiques, browse the many galleries or just visit the 20+ mile long beach ... you probably don't have enough time to do all there is to do here!

The Surf Perch is professionally managed by Pacific Realty Property Management - Call 1-888-879-5479 to reserve or for more information.

Please note that during holiday weeks or weekends a minimum stay might be required, please see the rate schedule for details. During the week of the International Kite Festival, a 7 night minimum stay is required. Kite festival is the third full week of August every year.

Wonderful base camp for our vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights. The house itself was perfect for our family of 4. It was nice and clean and the location was great. The kitchen was fully equipped and great for cooking meals between exploring. It was very quiet and a wonderful evening breeze would come in through the windows. Located close enough to Long Beach for a short drive to watch the sunset and we rode our bikes to the Harbor in Ilwaco every morning to see what the locals were up to.

Only thing I recommend for the owners to provide is a broom and dustpan. (we tracked sand into the entryway and would have loved to sweep it out on the the street)

I would highly recommend this home for your vacation.

Wonderful getaway for a great price. Come to the Discovery Trail that goes to Long Beach, and 3 blocks from the marina boardwalk.

Great location. Very clean property and well managed.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment sits right across the trail to Cape Disappointment State Park, about 150 yards away. And it's 5 mins drive to the beach. I mean, you can actually drive the car onto the beach through 38th PL. I feel lucky that we didn't pay double price to book a room at Long Beach.

The place is quite spacious. And the kitchen is convenient, with all the cookware you may need. We bought some fresh seafood from the market near by, and boiled right here. Yummy... can't have this if we stayed in the hotel room.

The property is managed by Pacific Realty. It's good to know someone is on duty to take care of you.

Parking is on the street. It's a quiet street so you won't have to compete for a spot.

Our family (2 adults, 2 young kids) stayed at the Surf Perch for a long weekend in July. The location was PERFECT for us -- we loved being only a few blocks from downtown Ilwaco and just down the road from Cape Disappointment State Park. We also loved having easy access to the less-crowded areas and car-free sections of beach in the State Park and at the southern end of Long Beach -- we highly recommend Benson Beach in Cape Disappointment State Park (past Waikiki Beach, all the way at the end of Jetty Road) and Seaview (the 1.5 miles north of 38th Pl. are car free in summer).

The apartment was clean, comfortable, spacious, and kid-friendly. We hope to get back to this area again next year, and we would rent this place again in a heartbeat. 5 stars!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for a slam bam finish to a surprise birthday weekend I arranged for my boyfriend. We had a few friends come with us from out of town. It was a wonderful stay! Everything was clean and tidy, the sound system was great and the furnature and beds comfortable. I had no complaints at all! Enough dishes and bakeware for what we needed. It is indeed on the main strip there, but no road noise bothered us at all. Super near by the port, and just a short jaunt to the various shops and restaurants. Not far away from Astoria either, which is where my favourite brewery is (Buoy). The outside doesn't look like fact I wasn't sure I was at the right place. However once we all walked inside we were instantly thrilled. Thank you thank you! We all had a wonderful time staying in this home!
