Welcome to Casa Sea Esta!

We are an oceanfront single family home located in Grayland (a few miles south of Westport). If your wish is to truly experience the ocean then you've found the right place. At this home you have towering ocean views from both the main living level and the upper floor - you can see the waves crash onto the beach! The sunset views are amazing - watch from either floor, both decks or from the king sized master bed.

Besides the ocean views, this home offers a unique east view of the hillside, the locally known four windmills and fantastic sunrises. There are few properties in the area which offer this quality of both sunrise and sunset views.

The towering views in all directions are truly unique and will help make your vacation memorable. Every room in the house has a view. There are no Bob Uecker seats here!

We could go on and on about the views - BUT now on to the house itself! This a 2 level, 4 bedroom, 2 bath home. The base rate includes 6 guests, with a maximum of 8 guests total. The pictured garage is not part of the rental space.

The main floor living area -

- Here you will find a fully equipped kitchen: double oven, full sized refrigerator, dish washer, coffee maker, blender, microwave and double sink. The kitchen is very well stocked with quality pots/pans, knives, dishes, glassware and all the kitchen gadgets you'd find at home. Really, just the food is missing (we do have a nice variety of spices though).

- Continuing on the main floor is the ocean view dining room table which seats 8 people. The living room has quality furnishings and a flat panel TV with DirectTV and DVD player.

- On the main floor is an oceanfront wrap-around porch which leads to the larger deck space. The deck offers a grill, conversation area and ample oceanside seating. Grilling outdoors while conversing with family/friends with an amazing ocean view is how memories are made. Sip your morning coffee while watching the sunrise and the windmills turn - truly a unique view!

- The ocean views from the kitchen, dining room, living room and deck are fantastic!

- Continuing on the main floor is a bedroom with queen bed offering relaxing east views of the hillside and windmills. A full bath and washer/dryer complete the main floor living.

The upper floor features 3 bedrooms, family room and a bath. The offerings of the upper floor are below -

- The smaller bedroom offers 2 twin beds. This room offers both a north view of the ocean/beach and an east view of the hillside and windmills.

- The second bedroom features a queen bed and has a fantastic view to the east of the hillside and windmills.

- The master bedroom features a king sized bed with breathtaking ocean views. Watch the ocean or sunset while laying in bed. Breakfast in bed?

- The oceanside family room offers a flat panel TV with DirectTV and DVD player. A sliding door takes you to a smaller deck offering commanding views of the beach and ocean. Ocean, sunset, bird, and people watching from the deck are a must!

- A 3/4 bath completes the upper level living space.

Outdoor Living Space -

Besides the large oceanside deck there is an outdoor kids area with sandbox, jumbo tic tac toe board and a driftwood hut. There is an enclosed dog run. A well defined gradually sloped path leads you to the beach. At the sand dune is a bench for up close people and nature watching at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. There is a fire pit and seating area (can not be used during burn bans). Toss a game of corn hole while relaxing listening to the ocean waves.

Well behaved dogs considered -

If you are considering bringing your dog please contact us to discuss. We have a gated enclosed outdoor dog run and the main floor deck is gated to keep the 4 legged ones contained. The pet fee is $25 for 1 or 2 dogs. If you have more than 2 dogs the fee is higher and we need to discuss this with our guests, prior to confirming the reservation.

Handicap Accessible? -

- No, this home not handicap accessible; however, if those with difficulty using stairs can make it up the first flight of stairs to get into the home, one can then remain on the main living floor. All your needs would be provided (bedroom, bath, kitchen, dining, living room, laundry, large outdoor deck space).

Our Guests and Us -

- It is important for our home to be a good fit for our guests as well as our guests to be a good fit for us. We are not a 'party' house. We cater to families and friends seeking a relaxing and quiet time at the ocean. We offer a quality product and provide a high level of customer service to our guests. In return we expect our home to be well cared for and treated with respect. Failure to properly disclose the number of guests and/or pet information is considered a violation of contract and monies paid for use of the home will be forfeited. YES, please note that kids are welcome but they are also considered guests and MUST be included in the guest count of your reservation. We say this to be 100% clear so us and our guests are on the same page with expectations.

If you are ready to reserve your ocean time please use the 'book it' feature in the upper right of our listing. Here you will enter your days, number of guests, if you are bringing a dog or not and a place for a message to us. Please include a tidbit about your time requested and your dog (if applicable).

If you need additional information then please use the 'email owner' feature and we will respond promptly to your question. You may also call.

About Joel and Denise

We love being at the beach and spending time in town. We enjoy decorating our vacation home with artwork featuring local and smaller artists. Inside and out of this home you will find authentic nautical décor. Bringing indoor living to the outdoors is important to us. We enjoy creating outdoor space which is inviting to our guests. We believe this creates a more enjoyable ocean experience. Our home caters to families and friends - both adults and young children were thought of. We believe it to be important to create your vision and then design your home to suit that vision. We hope we have succeeded in doing so.

Joel and Denise purchased this house in 2014

What makes this house unique

The height of this home allows for it's tremendous views. While the ocean view is spectacular the most unique offering is the east view. The hillside and windmills to the east offer a fantastic view. You could sit and watch the sun rise from the hillside. Then from the same chair watch the sunset. Perhaps there is something like this along the South Beaches but we've yet to find it.

50th Wedding Anniversary at Casa Sea Esta

  • 5 of 5

We came to Casa Sea Esta with its yard full of beach treasures to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with our kids and grandkids – seven of us ranging in age from 11 years to 74 years. *Everybody* had a fabulous time. The kids (11 & 13) played on the beach, flew a kite, and dug holes in the sand to their hearts’ content. Gma and Gpa took long beach walks, talked, and played Scrabble – things that we had started doing before we got married 50 years ago. The hard working forty-somethings got to take siestas at Casa Sea Esta between their beach walks. Gma and her son-in-law took turns making great meals in the well-equipped kitchen. No one left the house during the long weekend except for a run to Brady’s (they actually are as good as they claim to be) to get oysters for the BBQ. Taking in the views, good conversations, lots of memories, games and jigsaw puzzles rounded out the days. This is a top-of-the-list place for a beach getaway. There also is a play area for little kids as well as a place for dogs, plus a fire pit – things we didn’t use this time, but sure to appeal to folks who need them. We would like to return for our 100th wedding anniversary, or maybe even sooner… Thanks, Joel and Denise!

Great views and beach access

Had a wonderful time with the family while staying at Casa Sea Esta. The house was perfect for 7 of us, plenty of beds, clean, and the little ones absolutely loved playing and flying kites on the beach. Would absolutely stay here again.

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Joel and Denise for a wonderful place to stay! Everything you could need is here - great kitchen, wifi, TV/DVDs, lots of beds and two levels of house looking right at the Pacific! It's not always a hopping place but while I was there I watched the Grayland Open on the beach all weekend [a jet ski competition] and the annual salmon festival was going on in Westport. For eating out there's the Blue Buoy for breakfast, Bennett's Fish Shack, Blackbeard's Brewing Co. and of course Brady's Oysters! While you're there check out Bottle Beach for birds, Washaway Beech for a natural disaster in slow motion and the cranberry bogs all around. This is a great house in a great area!

Amazing Place!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Westport every summer for many years and this was far and above the best place we have stayed! GREAT location, comfy beds, rooms for all and pet friendly! We will be booking again!!! There are really no food supplies - just some spices - so bring all of your own items. I can assure you that you will feel at home in this space and will be very relaxed and refreshed when you leave. We cannot wait to get back!

The perfect week of great weather doing simple things together!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family reunion this past week, while soaking up the sun, walking the beaches, riding bikes,and having meals on the deck. What more could a group ask for? The short trail to the beach was perfect. The deck was a place to watch the ocean tides come and go. The kitchen allowed for most any meals our group wanted to prepare. Wifi was available and was appreciated! The decorating and furnishings comfortable and allowed a full house to have multiple spaces to enjoy. The bird watching, deer coming by each AM and the whale spouts were some of the best part of our week. Bring your own binoculars and be amazed at the things you can see and never leave the house!
