"We've been going to Westport at least once a summer for 14 years, staying at various home rentals as well as Westport by the Sea condos. This house was by far the nicest we've stayed in: the owners have done a fantastic job in keeping it up-to-date, clean, and utilitarian. You never know what kind of weather you're going to get, and we had a great mix of going out for wonderful walks on the beach, surfing at Westhaven, and making a few trips to the marina, and staying in for board and card games, watching movies, making music, cooking up some great meals, reading, and overall having great family time. The view from the main upstairs - kitchen, living area, dining room, and deck - is just phenomenal - as good a view, and as close to the beach, as any property around. The separate entertainment area - with a nice A/V system - was outfitted very comfortably and was separate enough from the main living area so as not to be too noisy. The hot tub was a very nice plus, and the bedroom with a bunk bed plus an additional single worked great for our 3 kids. Even the garage worked out great - we've had to unpack or pack in the rain and wind on past trips, and being able to unload and load inside a clean garage was super nice - the weather cooperated this time so it wasn't critical, but I can see it being a great bonus when the rain is coming down. For anyone coming, the only advice I'd give isn't really specific to this property but for any trip to Westport: (1) bring all your groceries with you (we loaded up at Whole Foods and PCC in Seattle before we left) except go to Merino's for fantastic smoked salmon and fresh seafood, and (2) be prepared for all kinds of weather - you can always go for a walk on the beach, but you may be wearing clothes you'd normally wear to Stevens or Crystal."
