We've been going to Westport at least once a summer for 14 years, staying at various home rentals as well as Westport by the Sea condos. This house was by far the nicest we've stayed in: the owners have done a fantastic job in keeping it up-to-date, clean, and utilitarian. You never know what kind of weather you're going to get, and we had a great mix of going out for wonderful walks on the beach, surfing at Westhaven, and making a few trips to the marina, and staying in for board and card games, watching movies, making music, cooking up some great meals, reading, and overall having great family time. The view from the main upstairs - kitchen, living area, dining room, and deck - is just phenomenal - as good a view, and as close to the beach, as any property around. The separate entertainment area - with a nice A/V system - was outfitted very comfortably and was separate enough from the main living area so as not to be too noisy. The hot tub was a very nice plus, and the bedroom with a bunk bed plus an additional single worked great for our 3 kids. Even the garage worked out great - we've had to unpack or pack in the rain and wind on past trips, and being able to unload and load inside a clean garage was super nice - the weather cooperated this time so it wasn't critical, but I can see it being a great bonus when the rain is coming down. For anyone coming, the only advice I'd give isn't really specific to this property but for any trip to Westport: (1) bring all your groceries with you (we loaded up at Whole Foods and PCC in Seattle before we left) except go to Merino's for fantastic smoked salmon and fresh seafood, and (2) be prepared for all kinds of weather - you can always go for a walk on the beach, but you may be wearing clothes you'd normally wear to Stevens or Crystal.
This place is fantastic! We stayed for a fishing trip and this place exceeded all expectations. And it's great when you have owners who care enough about your stay to call when they heard our trip was cancelled due to weather. Marty and Sandy are great and we would definitely bring our families back to this great place. It has everything you need...great spaces, loads of games and toys, a great family room, and very nice appliances and finishes. Marty and Sandy really love is place and it shows! Now we love it too.Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers.
This is a beautiful beach front home! The beach is literally 100 feet away! To get there is a little steep right by the beach but even my 2 year old could navigate it with a little help. The home is very clean and bright! The many warnings about the new hardwood floors, which were beautiful, had us a little on edge. The kitchen is well stocked and easy to use. However, the electric barbecue on the deck did not cook well. It never got very warm and ended up taking about 40 minutes to cook hamburgers. There are a lot of short stair cases leading to the 3 levels, but the views out of every window more than make up for that! There were a few extra steps to rent this beautiful home than we're used to, but in the end the fun and relaxing time we had in Westport more than made up for that! My only caution would be to any with small children. As I said, there are many staircases and they are impossible to block. Thank you for the use of your beautiful home! It was the perfect place to celebrate an important birthday!
