Our family moved to Gig Harbor in 2005, and we love being near the water. The Seaside Sanctuary is our Olalla Oasis that we love to visit and to share with others who can appreciate its peaceful charm.
Elizabeth purchased this House in 2012
Why Elizabeth chose Olalla
We think you'll find, as we have, that the Seaside Sanctuary offers the best of all worlds: Being right on the water with breathtaking views in a quiet beachside community makes this spot the perfect get-away-from-it-all setting for simply relaxing or walking on the beach. Or, you can tour the winery just down the road, hike in the nearby Banner Forest, or go for a horseback or ATV ride at the local stable. And all the while, you're just 20 minutes from downtown Gig Harbor with its many charming restaurants, shops, museums, theaters, and fun things to do!
What makes this House unique
Coming home to the Seaside Sanctuary is a rare treat. Coupled with the amazing waterfront views and 'Cape Cod' look of the home from the outside are the beautiful blue-and-whites, grays, greens, and sandy hues of the seaside-inspired decor on the inside. It's calm, clean, Coastal Living at its best!

Wonderful Memories to Last a Lifetime!
Seaside Sanctuary was everything it was described to be and more. I was looking for a peaceful quiet place for us to stay and enjoy the beautiful and breathtaking scenery in Washington and Seaside Sanctuary fit the bill in every way. From the minute our rental was confirmed to the last day we spent in Washington, the property owner was available to answer any questions we had about the property and surrounding area. We felt like we were staying in our home away from home with all the comforts of home too. The listing description was accurate, and the house was extremely well maintained and clean. Having a washer and dryer available in the house was a definite bonus! We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets and sunrises on the water every day from both the second floor and first floor array of windows spread across the entire house. The owner provided a nice binder full of information regarding activities to do in the surrounding area which was very helpful since it was our first trip to the Washington area. This home was in the perfect location for drives to the Pacific Coast and the City of Seattle as well as several ferry landings. It was only a 15 to 20 minute drive down to Gig Harbor where we enjoyed dinner overlooking the harbor, shopping, and kayaking! We were able to easily enjoy trips out to Olympic National Park, Rialto Beach, and Port Townsend for a whale watching tour. One day we even just relaxed at the house and enjoyed a little beach-combing at low tide in front of the house while watching the seals swim around just yards away in the water. Several times we were treated to eagles flying by and diving down for a fish dinner right in front of the house. I would recommend Seaside Sanctuary to anyone looking to stay at a peaceful place on the water in Washington!
A Delightful Stay
We spent 10 days at the "Sanctuary" and found it to be a lovely experience.
The house was so clean and well set up and all the amenities were at our fingertips.
It's very private home once you travel down a shared driveway.
The views from every room were remarkable and the high tide comes right up to the
wall surrounding the lawn. At high tide it feels like you're on a cruise.
We look forward to returning to this Olalla Oasis.
Seaside Santuary in Olalla
This was the second summer we stayed and we again thrilled with our stay. The view, environment, wildlife, water, sunrises, high and low tides are unforgettable. The house is cozy, neat, fully stocked and supplied, and every inch of it is comfortable and functional. It is great rural, waterfront living and peaceful and quiet. We had everything we needed and loved and enjoyed Elizabeth and her super responsiveness and care to our every need. Wonderful place to live and chill. We'll be back!!
We loved our stay and we are coming back. The house is comfortable and fully supplied, with a great view and lots of wildlife and tides to watch. We enjoyed our mornings, daytime, sunsets and peace and quiet. The beach is fun to walk, and if you kayak or canoe, it seems like it would be fun. The Landlord responded to our every need and was a joy to work with and know. It is rural and neighborly, with lots of privacy. Everything you need is 20 minutes away. We highly recommend it!
Very clean with amazing views
We loved our stay and the personal touches made a pleasant experience. We loved sitting on the deck and enjoying the wildlife. We look forward to the next time we can visit this lovely home.
Serene & Peaceful
The house was exactly as shown in the photos, and the owner was very nice, responsive, and accommodating. The beach unveiled at low tide makes for lovely walks along its pebbled sand, with lots of sea urchins, barnacles, and muscles everywhere you look - a feast for the sea birds all day long as they followed the tide out. When the tide comes in, the water comes right up to the property's sea/retaining wall and (with a little imagination) creates the illusion that you're on a houseboat. It was quiet and peaceful, and being 20+ minutes to town made it feel very remote. This is a great house to get away from it all.
However, I can not recommend it to anyone who suffers from bad indoor air allergies. We had to cut our vacation short (at our own expense) because my indoor allergies were terrible when we had to close the windows at night, causing an ongoing sinus issue to flare up.
