About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8

Relax in the spacious comfort of this oceanfront vacation home located at Klipsan Beach on the beautiful Long Beach Peninsula. Decorated with charm and surrounded by nature, this home features a southern style wrap-around porch which is covered and partially enclosed by glass for year-round enjoyment. A delightful spot to sit and watch deer graze in the yard with the Pacific Ocean surf in the background. Just read the comments from our guestbook below. The sunsets can be spectacular and the beach is only about 100 yards down a private path through the protected dunes. Famous for it's kite-friendly breezes, our beach is the best for leisurely strolls, bird watching, storm watching, hiking/running and for just breathing in that fresh, salt air (there's nothing like it!). Sea Hope is at the end of a 'Dead End' road, insuring maximum privacy and outdoor safety for children and pets.

1400 sq. ft. of comfortable living area on one floor with ocean views from the livingroom, kitchen/dining and master bedroom. Additional sq. footage in the basement serves as an overflow area with a double bed, full bath, laundry facilities and a kite workshop/play area.

This immaculate and contemporary home has three bedrooms upstairs (2 with queen beds and one with two twin beds) and two full bathrooms as well as a comfy sleeping couch in the livingroom area. We recently updated the entire upper level with new wood floors, carpets and tile. You'll love our quality beds and linens, too.

The livingroom features a Lopi woodstove with a glass door. The main living area also has large skylights for an abundance of natural light and some heavenly star-gazing. Cable TV/DVD w/BluRay, CD/Radio w/ipod dock, movies, books, games and toys are all provided for your enjoyment, as well as WIFI. You'll also find an outdoor eating area on the covered side-porch, a firepit in the yard, a charcoal grill (in season) and sandcastle-building supplies for everyone.

The lower level offers a double bed, a 3/4 bath and a wonderful kite workshop. You'll also find TV/VCR/DVD and stereo as well as a game table and play area on this level. We even have 2 bicycles and a red wagon.

Located 3 miles south of Ocean Park, Sea Hope Cottage is a short drive from groceries, post office, churches, a variety of shops and artists' studios, parks, museums, a wildlife refuge, historic lighthouses and communities, the pristine Willapa Bay, and the culinary delights of restaurants that range from down-home local to world class. Just a 3-4 hour drive from Seattle or 2-3 hours from Portland.

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 the Better Business 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. I've been managing vacation rental homes on the Long Beach Peninsula as Oceanfront Getaways for about 20 years. Originally from South Dakota, we moved here in 1994 and have been deeply 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. Of course, it wouldn't be possible without the hard work of my great cleaning team and my handyman husband, who handles most of my maintenance on the houses I manage. My favorite beach activity is digging razor clams. I have two grown children and one special grandchild.

Why Sue Hermanns chose Washington

Sea Hope Cottage was the very first house I managed, starting in 1997. My dear friend had to leave the area and didn't want to sell her beach house. She approached me about managing it as a vacation rental and the rest, as they say, is history. This home has been through new owners and several upgrades since then. It's located on Klipsan Beach - a great vacation spot. It's also on a very private lot at the end of the street. It has it's own path through the dunes to the beach and is close to one of the beach access roads (for those who like to drive on the beach).

What makes this house boat unique

Sea Hope has a wonderful covered porch that wraps around the house and is partially enclosed. Also, the secluded location often means wildlife in the yard. The glass door in the master bedroom allows you to see the ocean before you even get out of bed in the morning.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This has been a wonderful stay. All the comforts of home. We have been coming to the Long Beach area for about 20 years now. We have always stayed in our RV/trailer. This is our first attempt at ever renting a house--boy did we every hit a grand slam homerun! WOW! What a beautiful home!! Thank you for making this available for us. We hope to be back next year.

Our family "Dream Home" come true!!

  • 5 of 5

Not only was this the perfect location, it had everything you could possibly be looking for in a vacation home. Sea Hope Cottage has a "homey" feel from the minute you walk in the door. Exceptionally clean, well taken care of, and the details that you wouldn't think of when packing are right there stocked in your large kitchen. It slept a family of 7 comfortably and we were beyond pleased with our week! Ms. Hermanns is a lady that thinks of everything. We were most impressed and will definitely be back. Don't look for another place. This family friendly home is exactly what you are looking for in a vacation home.

Sea Hope Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This Beach House provided us a home away from home. There is nothing that we were without.. It has a beautiful view, being so close to the ocean. At night sitting by the fire pit and hearing the waves of the ocean was so relaxing. The manager treated us like family and made sure we were always comfortable; we just love her. The area had a variety of stores to shop in and to eat at. I would recommend this house to anyone

Had a great stay at Sea Hope Cottage, the weather was beautiful, Loved walking on the beach, flying a kite and connecting with family. We would for sure stay here again, and there were 7 of us plenty of room. Enjoyed the bakery in Long Beach and the little shops along main street. Also went over to Astoria and did the zip lining-Super fun, everyone enjoyed that. The cottage was super clean with comfortable beds and furniture, just a beautiful home for relaxation and family fun.
