A large beautiful deck in the fenced yard with comfy adirondack chairs and a dining area offers a tranquil outdoor setting for this delightful retreat. The sunsets can be breathtaking and you're only about 100 yards from 28 miles of sandy beach. Famous for it's Kite-friendly breezes, our beach is the best for leisurely strolls, bird watching, storm watching, hiking/running or just enjoying the abundance of fresh, salt-air (there's nothing like it!) All this is just a 3-4 hour drive from Seattle, WA or 2-3 hours from Portland, OR.

On the same level, you'll find another bath with fun custom tilework, the other 2 bedrooms, and a cozy, welcoming livingroom outfitted with Cable TV/VCR/DVD, CD/Tape Player/Radio, movies, music, books, games & toys, a game table, fireplace and a double futon for overflow sleeping.

Just take one step up to our modern eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances, gas rangetop, corian counters and tile floors. It's fully furnished, including plenty of nice dishes and cookware, a dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffeepot, popcorn popper, blender and coffee grinder. This kitchen is very popular with our 'Love-to-cook' guests.

You'll find a Weber charcoal grill, yard toys, kites and beach chairs for your enjoyment. A crib and baby monitor are also available upon request. We provide your paper products (paper towels, toilet paper, napkins, paper cups & tissues) as well as hand, dish & laundry soaps.

Located three and one-half miles south of Ocean Park, Sea Nest is a short drive from groceries, post office, churches, a variety of shops and artists' studios, parks, a wildlife refuge, historic lighthouses and communities, the pristine Willapa Bay and the culinary delights of varied restaurants. Whether you're looking for a place to walk, run, write, paint, meditate, fly kites, look at antiques, dig clams, watch birds, be alone, be with people you love or simply stare at the ocean, this peaceful, private beach cottage is an ideal retreat.

About Sue Hermanns

Hello, this is Sue. Not the owner, but the property manager for this very special beach house. I've been managing vacation rental homes on the Long Beach Peninsula as Oceanfront Getaways for about 20 years now. Originally from South Dakota, we moved here in 1994 and have been enjoying Life at the Beach ever since. Oceanfront Getaways has been awarded 5 stars for Excellence in Customer Satisfaction for several years in a row. I'm very proud of that honor. Of course, it wouldn't be possible without the help of my wonderful cleaning team and my handyman husband who handles most of the maintenance on the homes I manage. My favorite beach activity is digging razor clams. I have two grown children and one very special grandchild.

Why Sue Hermanns chose Long Beach

Sea Nest is the quintessential beach house. A wall of windows in the livingroom to view the ever-changing Pacific, a cozy fireplace for cooler weather and down comforters on the beds. The owner of this property focuses on attention to detail. Even the landscaping is 'beachy'.

What makes this house unique

Sea Nest has a fabulous eat-in kitchen. Our guests that cook always rave about it.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We arrived at the lovely Sea Nest on a wet Thursday evening. Woke up Friday morning to beautiful sunshine and blue skies which lasted all day - close to 70 degrees by afternoon. Had a DELICIOUS veggie burger and abundant fries at The Hungry Harbor Grille! They never disappoint! Visited Cape Disappointment Park and trekked down to North Head Lighthouse. Amazing views of the mouth of the Columbia and crashing waves. So windy, it was hard to hold my camera still! Breathtaking beauty. Leaving today with more great memories. We've been coming to the Sea Nest for 20+ years, always with our dogs. This is the first visit without or recently departed Spencer and Keely. Sea Nest was their happy place, and we have 11 years of memories of their wonderful times here walking on the beach, romping, playing & napping. Can't wait to return with the next generation!!! Thank you!

Wonderful! Can't wait to go back.

  • 5 of 5

Spent Labor Day weekend here, 3 couples and 3 small dogs! The listing doesn't do this property justice, especially the kitchen and back porch/yard. It's even more warm and welcoming in person, and a great value for the amenities. Having the two sliding glass doors gives it a great flow, easy to go in and out. There's some really cool, unique salmon themed tile work in one of the bathrooms. It was easy to find, and a quick 10 minute drive into town. The house and yard were very clean and well maintained. The property manager provided excellent customer service, including responding to our phone call with detailed instructions about recycling. I would recommend this property to others, just please don't book it on the weekends I want to go back! :)

A perfect 4th of July Celebration

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot for a get away! The house is really cute, comfortable and clean! The kitchen was a dream. The backyard was great for grilling, frisbee and for our dog. It's fenced, but is open around one side. He's good about staying put, so wasn't an issue for us. We spent lots of time on the beautiful beach and loved nightly bonfires in the sand. Three things you may want to know in advance. There are not a lot of bath towels. We had 5 people and only 4 towels. So, might want to bring a few extra. We brought beach towels, so it was no problem. Same with toilet paper. We were running quite low. The bed in the master bedroom is super comfy, but loudly creaky. Fine for sleeping, but...enough said. :-)

All in all a perfect weekend in the perfect location. We can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. Sounds like a wonderful 4th of July and I believe you celebrated a birthday, as well :-). Great family times - that's what it's all about. My reservation notes indicated there would be 3 people instead of 5. No wonder you ran out of towels and toilet paper. I'm so sorry about that. I would have been happy to stop by and get out more bath towels and t.p. for you, had I known. Thank you also for the heads-up about that master bedroom bed. We will get that checked out and repaired as soon as possible. Hopefully, it will be much quieter for your next stay. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
