About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-12)

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 brand new 8 foot see through fence on the side that has the enchanted Forest 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 (no door) 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**) ( You must notify when getting a quote the number of dogs and ages)

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.

About DeAnne

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.

DeAnne purchased this house in 2009

Why DeAnne chose Olympic Peninsula & Pacific Coast

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had a lovely stay, so much we hated to leave. The beach house was perfect and private. You have the feel of the woods yet minutes walking to the beach. Wonderful feeling to come home and feeling so relaxed.

Our respite from the you'd expect at the beach in February

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I have an annual trip to the coast over Presidents' Day weekend. We are a group that welcomes harsh weather and a good adventure, always with a few beach adoring dogs in tow. With our traditional dog-friendly yurts already booked, we decided to rent a house by the beach instead. We found the cottage to be everything we needed. It was quite spacious, clean, charming and comfortable. In between our soggy but epic trips to the beach, we especially enjoyed all the VHS movies and big open table for day long Jenga tournaments. The beach was very close by- though steep, any abled body could make the trek! On our last night we visited the Seabrook tavern, which was literally a two minute walk, and had an awesome jukebox and pool table. Overall, a very wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Going to the beach is about having a good time with friends. Dogs love the beach and we love responsible owners with dogs! Every experience is what you make it. A grand time of movies, friends, games and adventure at the beach is one definite way to enjoy. The Seagate Pub is just a block from the house and is an eclectic mix of local flavor with Pool table and music.

Nice quiet cabin near the beach

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable, pet-friendly place to stay. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. The doggie wall of fame was a nice touch for people like us who love dogs. And the fenced yard meant that we didn't have to leash up the girls every time they needed to potty. Beds were comfortable, kitchen was well-stocked and we were within easy walking distance of the beach (which we mostly had to ourselves). And the sun was shining!

Lovely beach home- comfort, quality, AND dog friendly!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is great! Everything you need for a weekend away with your pups, without having to sacrifice comfort or quality for it to be super dog-friendly. Super clean and lots of light and air with all the windows and doors. Owners very helpful and quick to reply. Excellent location, just up the hill from an amazing beach- it was the first time my girls have been to the ocean and they loved it! Also conveniently close enough to little markets for small necessities, but far enough away that was quiet and peaceful. I'm super picky about beds and slept like the dead here in the comfortable upstairs queen, lulled to sleep by the sound of crashing waves and frogs chirping. Will definitely be coming back!!

Close to nice ocean beach

  • 4 of 5

Owner was accommodating and allowed us to go in early, which was much appreciated. Very east to reach the owner. Well stocked home with all the necessities. Yard was fenced, which was great since we were traveling with dogs. House was cleaned well when we arrived. Would give this 5 stars but upstairs bedroom, with 4 beds was a little strange, no door for that room. If we visit the area again, would stay at the house.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the great description and review. We are sorry you thought our loft bedroom was strange, but our home is designed to handle adults and children and the loft bedroom is just that - for the children. We explain each bedroom in the description on the listing. We were happy to accommodate great guests like you and your Shelties and are glad you would choose to stay with us again!
