If you're looking for the hustle and bustle of Ocean Shores, with a McDonalds, Hotels, Gas Stations and swarms of visitors there's bad news - this is not it. (But we are just 12 miles and 20 minutes North.)
The good news is that Sandy's Beach Cottage is a world apart.
Just North of where Copalis Beach meanders to the great Pacific Ocean, is a gated community of private cabins. Here you'll find us!
The home is far enough off the highway to prevent road noise, but surrounded by large trees and a very easy stroll down the lane to one of Washington State's most unspoiled beaches.
Built in 2002, Sandy's cottage home has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and sleeps up to 6 guests. You can have a few more, up to 8 max (but the other 2 won't have beds.)
Many beaches on the coast allow visitors to drive their cars along the sand. It really is a great way for people to discover long stretches of pristine beaches.
"The beach at this location is amazing! The softest, cleanest, most private beach we've been to in all of WA and OR. I'm not kidding. It's breathtaking!" - Simone
The Copalis Rock area is something special. April through Labor day, vehicles are prohibited on the beach from the Copalis River to Iron Springs. (Copalis Rock is a giant boulder just North and slightly off shore.)
Because Sandy's Beach Cottage is on the newer side with a modern kitchen and bathroom. In the winter, the heating along with a tight wood stove, keeps the place toasty warm. The home is still cool enough in the warmer summer months.
We stock it with fresh towels and linens, plus pots, pans, plates and silverware for the kitchen. Yep, this means you can whip up your favorite meal, all you have to supply is your choice of food!
Bring your favorite book for the days you're looking to kick back and relax, the oversized windows provide a lot of natural light perfect for escaping into a novel. Not only are these windows giant, but they also face west meaning you'll get a glimpse of the ocean.
"Lovely little cottage located on a hillside with a nice walk down a winding road to the ocean." - Melissa
There's convenient parking for 2 cars so you don't have to all cram into one vehicle.
In the living room you'll find cozy furniture, a mounted television and of course that wooden stove we mentioned earlier. The living area is perfectly ideal for cozying up at the end of the night.
Make your way outside where you'll find yourself standing on the shaded deck. Although, we must say our guests do seem to prefer the fire pit (Sometimes officials disallow camp fires if summer is overly dry.)
Being in the trees we are somewhat protected from the winds which can kick up especially in winter. Maybe you are one of those folks who love to watch the storms - we sure do.
So that pretty much sums up this cottage in the woods, which is a quick stroll to the beach. Please come visit, rest and relax. Have fun with you friends and family, everyone loves a sandy beach.
Even though the beach is closed to cars much of the year, you may see light planes land and take off from the beach. This is the only beach landing spot in the entire state. It's fun to watch for kids and adults alike.
