About the Owner

<br/> <br/>

Hi! I am Alea, the owner, and I am so honored to own this home..... I care for it, maintain it, clean it, and absolutely love it! I hope it shows, and I am BLESSED by the fact that families and friends make memories at my home, enjoying each other, and enjoying the amazing ocean.

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. <br/> <br/>

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! <br/> <br/>

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

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!

Perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing property right up against the beach. We had a great stay. The house was decorated very nicely with plush furniture and a great beach feel. The beach was awesome with lots of areas to walk and get lost in your thoughts. I have never seen so many sand dollars in my life. We went with 3 other couples and had plenty of space as well as privacy. We plan on coming back next year. Everything was nice, from the home the beach as well as Alea the owner! Thank you so much!!!!

Great Family Beach house

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house with our kids and grandkids and had a great time. There was enough room to be all together or to have seperate groups. The beach was just a few level steps away and we had it almost to ourselves the whole time. The kitchen was adequate for our needs. The owner was friendly and helpful and easy to work with. We want to come back again!

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was shared by our extended family for 3 nights. The furnishings and artwork are lovely as is the common area we all shared. The description is accurate and the homeowner is very accommodating and helpful. The beach is splendid--a short, flat walk from the house and miles of sand. We enjoyed bonfires, badmitton and sight seeing in the area. Great family hideaway!

Location

From the Owner



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.

Activity and Interests

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.

The best thing about my home for those that spend time here, is the family and friends around you and the memories you are making. The next best thing is that the ocean is right there!! It's probably a good thing that I spend most of my time while at the home busy working, because when I do stop and just stare at the amazing waves, I nearly get tears. It's so gorgeous, and always always always has a different personality. To walk out into the yard at night, hearing the roar of the waves, looking up to the sky sparkling with stars - and there's nothing more lovely than the moonlight streaming across the water..... See, you might come to tears too. It's just such a beautiful part of this world!

And that's the unique benefit - it's a home built with love, maintained with care, smack dab in the middle of a lovely piece of the coast, with cozy spaces for you and your loved ones. Mmmmm! While you may only be able to fit a certain number of shells and 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!
