Privately owned, cleaned, cared for. Beachfront Hideaway: No-bank waterfront
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!
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
This is the perfect location. It's tucked away on a little road with a beautiful private drive way. We knew as soon as we got to the gate of the property that this was going to be a great weekend.
The main/first photograph is very representative of the proximity to the beach, which is not quite private, but not very crowded either, we easily walked down to the water multiple times per day. There's a variety of rooms and places for people to gather (or get away) in the house.
Beds were universally agreed to be "not the most comfortable" but were clean.
Regarding the kitchen facilities: There may not be all the specialty tools a chef may have, but any standard tool, bowl/pot/pan I could think of from can openers to coffee grinder, from small saute pan to cake pan were in the kitchen. Other people have left some items behind that you may find useful -- for example, there were 2 or 3 salt and pepper sets, 3 coffee creamer containers in the fridge, etc. If you can hold off your grocery run (there's an IGA 15 miles south) until you can take inventory there, you would probably be glad.
If you are travelling with less-mobile people, you should know that there are a couple of steps at both doors, low toilets with no grab bars, and uneven floors inside. Not a complaint per-se, just FYI, because when you need these things, it's good to know where they are (and are not) available.
In summary, Great location, Lots of room, good kitchen. Would recommend to friends. Will be fondly remembering our time and thinking of plans to come back one day.
Great stay at the beach.
This is a great beach house. Plenty of room for everyone. Great kitchen and comfy couches. Straight shot to the beach, smores at the fire pit. We will be happy to return to this magical home.
Family stay with adult children
Very comfortable, relaxed setting. House slept 8 adults comfortably and has room for many more small ones. Beach access fantastic. Kitchen is well appointed for large groups. Furnishings are a bit eclectic which we felt was a positive. This includes tube type TVs with dvd or vhs and a huge collection of old movies which we used and enjoyed. Who doesn't like Three Men and a Little Lady lol. We would rent again for sure.
Family beach trip
We loved our stay at this beautiful home. Clean, well stocked, and so cozy. Literally feet from the beach right out the back French doors! Gorgeous views too! Alea was very kind and accommodating. Our family had such a great time, and we really hope to stay here next year! 5/5 for sure!!! 🙌🏻🥰
Amazing home! It had everything we were looking for, and more! Would stay again!
Bookclub Weekend Away in March
I booked this stay for a weekend away for my bookclub ladies. I was unable to attend but my friends enjoyed their stay. Some of their comments: "Cozy, cute and comfy", "Loved the easy beach access and fire area", "Well stocked kitchen". Thank you Alea!
This beautiful home is located in a picturesque coastal area with tall windswept trees atop and alongside the rugged shoreline. Colorful sandstone banks are laced with wide soft sand beaches. The area has a small town feel with local shops and eateries. Peace and natural beauty abounds.
