About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

This cozy oceanfront cabin is quaint and comfortable. Ideal for those seeking quiet relaxation and walks on the beach. Just read the comments from our guestbook below. Described by one guest as "cottage personified", the house is accented throughout with stained glass and collectibles. The open living area includes a cozy fireplace, beautiful pine-wood walls and large picture windows facing the ever-changing view of the Pacific Ocean.

A little gazebo and a collection of garden gnomes provides for a fanciful, secluded yard area. You can retreat from the ocean breezes to a protected, covered sundeck - great for gathering with friends or family or just kicking back with a good book. Just around the corner in the side yard, you'll find a grilling area with a Weber charcoal grill. It's about 100 yards down the neighborhood path and easy access to 28 miles of beautiful sandy beach. Famous for it's kite-friendly breezes, our beach is the best for leisurely strolls, bird watching, storm watching, hiking/running or simply staring at the ocean. The steady surf furnishes your background noise and the fresh salt air, a feeling of restoration.

The master bedroom features a beautiful king-size sleigh bed. The second bedroom has a queen-size bed with a new mattress and there is a queen sofa-sleeper in the livingroom. A porta-crib and baby monitor are available upon request. We provide your paper products as well as hand, dish, and laundry soaps.

This special getaway is surrounded by nature yet a short drive to an abundance of local activities, restaurants and groceries. Located on the Long Beach Peninsula - famous for great family vacations. Just a 3-4 hour drive from Seattle, WA or 2-3 hours from Portland, OR

Please call Sue to reserve. Office hours are Noon to 8PM, PT, Mon-Sat.

Oceanfront Getaways is a member of the Long Beach Peninsula Visitor's Bureau and has been awarded 5-Stars for Excellence in Customer Satisfaction.

About Sue Hermanns

Hello, this is Sue. Not the owner, but the property manager for this home. I've been in business as Oceanfront Getaways here since 1997. As you can see by my picture, I love to dig clams. Our business has been awarded 5 stars for Excellence in Customer Satisfaction for several years in a row. I'm pretty proud of this. Of course, it wouldn't happen without my fantastic cleaning team and my husband's handy help. I love living at the beach and want to share whatever information I can with my guests, from good places to eat, to where to find the best and biggest clams. I was born and raised in South Dakota but have been living here for over 20 years. I have two grown sons and a beautiful grand daughter. ~feeling blessed.

Why Sue Hermanns chose Long Beach

Garden Shores is a really cozy and comfortable home. Everyone loves the comfy beds, they get lots of compliments. The owners of the home have been busy making improvements here and there and trying to maintain the ocean view. They still believe that vacation should be simple and relaxing so no video games or wifi here. Also, cell service is sketchy in this neighborhood. You might get to see some of the local wildlife, like the black bear that frequents the garbage cans on this street, or the deer with her twin fawns.

What makes this house unique

The covered deck between the garage and house is a favorite spot for our guests. It's cozy and comfortable and dry during the rain or drizzle. The owner has been a collectibles dealer in the past and you'll find lots of unique touches in and around this home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We sure got lucky with this spontaneous getaway! We really love the house, location and décor! Although my 3 week old daughter won't remember her first trip to the beach, I'm sure it will be a lasting memory to the rest of us. Thanks for sharing your home with us. Warm regards,
Aug 2014
