The space

An adventurer's paradise. This cute and funky bungalow is located just moments from the beautiful Sunset Beach, famous for attracting the kiting community. There are hiking trails just before you reach Sunset Beach that lead to many of the area's natural and historical attractions. You can also fish, kayak or canoe at Sunset, Cullaby or Coffinberry Lakes which are all easily reached from the cottage.

The house is located directly between Seaside and Astoria. It is a great location for exploring both coastal communities. Astoria is historic with beautiful Victorians and a thriving new brew pub industry. Seaside is perfect for the kids with bumper cars, arcades, outlet malls shopping and an aquarium where you can feed the seals.

The house is small, yet functional. The bedroom nook houses a queen bed. It is divided from the living area by curtains. The bed is very comfortable. It is a great place to sleep in since it stays nice and dark and there is virtually no noise in the neighborhood (most days).

The second sleeping area holds a futon bed with a double futon. This is usable as a "living room" if a couple stays or as another "bedroom" for other adults or kids.

In the front room is a nice sofa with pull out bed that fits two. The cottage can sleep up to 6 people. Since it is small and there is only 1 bathroom, it is best for a couple or a family.

The kitchen has a refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, griddle and a hotplate. There is plenty of pantry space and the home comes equipped with dishes and flatware for 6. There is a kitchen island with stools for indoor eating a a small picnic table outside.

There are a couple of space heaters if the nights get chilly.....just remember to turn them off when not in use.

Just off the front steps is an outdoor covered area for BBQs, cuddling up and reading a good book, or an evening cocktail. There is also room to hang stuff out to dry after those long days on the beach! The yard is quite large and holds two trees perfect for setting up a slackline or clothes line if you prefer. There is also a lovely fire pit with seats for your enjoyment.

The proximity to the beach was such a treat and the coffee shop just steps down the street was great!

Pros: Great price if you are on a budget. Close to the beach and hiking trails, which is what we came for. Neighborhood is quiet and felt safe. Cons: You get what you pay for, which is not much in the way of amenities. Very little privacy if you are traveling with a group. Da…

Keelin’s place is beautiful and very close to the beach. My family and I had a great escape there. The beach is so very close and we soaked it up as much of possible. The place itself is cozy and fun with every thing you need to getaway and relax right next to the beach
