Seabrook - Pacific Beach WA
In Pacific Beach, WA a new beautiful beach town has been emerging over the past several years. Over President's weekend, my family and I, drove the 2 1/2 hours from Seattle out to the WA coast to check out Seabrook. While we didn't stay at any of the Seabrook cottage rentals, we drove through the master planned community and also viewed a model home.
This idyllic community is a true coastal town just beyond the Olympic National Park, albeit, the rough Washington coast. In early February, it was 45 degrees, pouring rain and so windy you had to lean into it to walk. However, this little community oozes charm and an east coast summer living sensibility (if you could envision a warm, sunny day). There are different floor plans and ocean view or ocean front options. Also, 90% of the homes are 2nd vacation homes, while 10% live year round. The vacation home owners usually place their homes in the care of Seabrook Cottage rental management as rental homes. While they plan on continuing to add to their town center, there is currently a market, cafe and deli, post office and bike rental.
These are just a few tidbits of information. The website: www.seabrookwa.com is full of information. Check out this community and see if a visit there is in your future.
