Bedrooms 5
Property type house

About the property

Privately owned, cleaned, cared for. Beachfront Hideaway: No-bank waterfront

Pacific Beach home on the beach, less than a mile south of Seabrook. Large home right on the ocean in a private setting, beachfront in your back yard. Reservations confirmed and home readied personally by owner.

The Beachfront Hideaway is a unique property with wide no-bank ocean frontage, yet having a beautiful protected setting, sheltered by trees. Walk directly from the lawn to the beach. No stairs, no winding trail. The home has its own lawn and yard, not simply beach grass, with space for outdoor tables and chairs. The beauty of the north coast is the wind-swept spruce trees and rugged coast line bordering soft sand. This home is nestled into the midst of it!

The Beachfront Hideaway is a large one-level oceanfront home - a tastefully appointed vacation getaway with plenty of space. This home offers relaxed living, all on one level with 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. There are oriental wool carpets underfoot throughout the house, providing warmth, comfort, and adding to the quiet atmosphere. Having plenty of comfortable seating is important to me, and the large living room offers large sectionals with down cushions. Sit back and enjoy the view of the ocean, relaxing with your friends / family.

The five bedrooms plus den offer four queen beds and four twin beds. Please go to 'Amenities' tab from upper menu bar for more information about bedrooms, and for even further detail, click on 'View more photos and information' at the bottom of page, above Notes.

The large kitchen is fully equipped and the dining table enjoys excellent ocean views and seats 12. The living room offers plenty of comfortable seating with three sectionals and beautifulm views of the waves. Throughout the home, wood, bamboo, and stone are creatively used to provide warmth and beauty uniquely in each room. Several rooms have bamboo or mahogany ceilings, or bead-board walls inset with a surprise of marble or granite.

Enjoy this spacious, comfortable, beautifully appointed waterfront home offering privacy yet easy access to restaurants and stores. Amidst this peaceful setting, pulses the sound of the ocean, with views of its majesty prevalent throughout the house.

If you choose my home, I hope that you will make special and wonderful memories during your stay, and that you will feel that you've found a special treasure in the Beachfront Hideaway. ---Alea

About Alea

Hi! I am Alea, the owner of the Beachfront Hideaway..... I care for this home, maintain it, clean it, and absolutely love it! I am greatly blessed by the fact that families and friends make memories at my home, enjoying each other, and enjoying the amazing ocean. Please call me and chat with me about my home anytime, or send me an email with any questions that you have.

The home is furnished with bits and pieces of my life thus far, including the artwork, accessories, furnishings, etc. It has been lovingly remodeled over several years, my intention being to provide comfortable spaces throughout the home, in order to accommodate up to 12 people in an environment of delight and charm - just in case the magnificence of the ocean and the joy of those around you isn't enough!

There is a story behind almost every detail in the house, such as the bead board lining the living room walls - which came from a theater set downtown Seattle - complete with the white wash that is perfectly "beachy"! And the inset slab of marble on the west wall of the side bedroom - designating the place where I found framing from what used to be a view window (in a wall that was now in the middle of the house!). I could just imagine the house whispering that once upon a time it was only a fishing cabin.

I come from Tacoma to clean and ready the home, and most of the time I meet guests upon their arrival. Please feel free to ask about any of the details, and I'll fill you in on the story!

PS - My hope is to have my own family someday, and make lots of fun memories - here at the beach!

Alea purchased this house in 2006

Why Alea chose Copalis Crossing

It's quite an amazing story - I never looked at any other home on the coast but this one. I was in the car, headed north on Hwy 109, having never been in this part of the world ever before. I was amazed at the beauty! The tall trees, the gleaming ocean, the peacefulness of it all. I definitely felt that I was in an area 'less traveled', and it was gorgeous! At the time, I owned a couple homes that I rented out to travelers in the Seattle area, and all at once I looked out of the window over toward the ocean, and looked out over an A-frame cabin. Right at that moment, I thought "I'd love to have a vacation home here!".

Less than a year later, the Lord provided me the amazing opportunity to buy this home - located 3 doors down from where I'd had that thought! All of it was a series of miracles that were completely unlikely to happen. Over the next few years, the miracle of keeping the beach house continued, as all else that I had fell away. And as my whole life got 'remodeled', somehow the once dark and dreary (and rather homely!) beach house got remodeled at the same time! I discovered what a wonderful oasis the beach was in the midst of the whirlwind of everyday life. As I got close to the beach in my car, my cell service dropped off, my cares all the sudden seemed back in the city, and even going out to move lumber around, paint, fix things, etc., seemed like a joy because of the peace all around me.

This property is one of the big blessings of my life - I hope it profoundly blesses those that enjoy it.

What makes this house unique

Fond memories are such a delight - both to make, and to treasure. The wealth of memories made at the Beachfront Hideaway, overwhelms and amazes me sometimes. The guestbook is full of notes and remembrances of the special times that families and friends share and create at my home. That is the best thing about my home! Please email me from the designated spot to the right, or call me anytime if you have questions about my home or the surrounding area. I am available during your stay if questions arise - or if you're wondering where to buy some cheap sunglasses! The ocean always has a different personality. I hope that each person that spends time at my home, will take some time to just watch it and experience the calming that seems to come with watching the waves, and forgetting about all else. Walk out into the yard at night, hear the roar of the waves, and then look up, and gaze at the sky sparkling with stars. Oh, and there's nothing more lovely than the moonlight streaming across the water..... It's such a beautiful part of this world!

The Beachfront Hideaway is a home built with love, maintained with care, right in the middle of a lovely piece of the coast, with cozy spaces for you and your loved ones. Although you may only be able to fit a certain number of shells and really cool rocks in your travel bag to take home, there is no limit to the number of wonderful memories you can take back and keep forever!

Outstanding property and location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a perfect weekend at this beautiful home. We can't thank you enough for sharing it with us! The eight of us had this amazing beach to ourselves. We flew kites, hiked on the beach and made a fantastic dinner. Everything we needed was there and I found the writeup of the home to be extremely accurate. We will stay again in the future!

The Beachfront Hideaway is amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the Thanksgiving weekend and it was absolutely amazing!! This house is so warm and cozy and there is so much space. We spent much of our time at the huge dining room table playing games and putting puzzles together. The kitchen is very well equipped and we enjoyed spending time cooking meals together. The 2 master bedrooms are absolutely perfect when you have multiple families.

Alea is wonderful and made us feel very welcome!! The beach was really close and we spent every non-rainy moment enjoying it! We will definitely be coming back to this house for family vacations!!!

Beachfront Hideaway is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Beachfront Hideaway was just wonderful! Alea was very helpful and nice. The house was just perfect. The kitchen is really nice and we had fun preparing delicious dinners for everyone. We spent a lot of time at the large dining room table playing games and laughing! The beach is just a short walk and you can hear the waves from your bedroom windows! It was 5 glorious nights we didn't want to leave. We loved driving to Ocean Shores for taffy and then lunch at Bennett's Fish Shack. We also had fun searching for sand dollars and flying kites on the beach! Hope to come back for another visit!

Right on the Beach! beautiful & relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place it's very cozy and being able to handle my whole family was a plus. Alea is great to work with and has the house well stocked. Loved being right on the beach so we never had to drive to the beach you just walked out the back door and there you are. Loved being able to watch the waves from the house if you didn't feel like going outside. Not to far from Pacific Beach if you wanted to get out and about. Will definitely keep this one in my favorites for our next trip . Thank you Alea for sharing your beautiful home with us

Excellent location, beautiful views, cozy house!

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome rental. First off, this place is huge! and its all on one level (perfect for those with a hard time going up and down stairs). There are what seems like endless hallways to other rooms.

The good:

#1 Location:

After looking around for beach rentals in Washington, there are very few that actually are beachfront properties. Most of the time its "near the beach". This property is actually on the beach, just a short walk out the back door and you hit the sand. Also, the views are perfect! plenty of large windows to look out on the ocean.

#2 Capacity

This place easily accommodated 4 couples. Not only did we each have our own room, but there were several sectional couches and sitting areas so everyone had their own space. It also had a dining table large enough to accommodate all of us for our community meals.

#3 Location (did I already say that?)

Being on a Washington beach often means crowds (most any time of the year). But pacific beach/moclips has always been my favorite areas due to the lack of crowds. This is just far north enough up pacific to be away from the crowds and yet close enough to the town of Pacific Beach and Ocean shores.

The Bad:

This really isn't a huge negative, but there was no TV service (dish, cable or Over the Air). So when the Seahawks game was on we had to go down to the Quinalt Casino to watch it. Which actually ended up being a fun adventure anyway.

Before our vacation ended my group of people were already giving me deposits for next year. Looking forward to making this a tradition!
