Beautiful Loft Apartment, on the Long Beach Peninsula, Washington State, in the great NW.
Our loft apartment is located on the Long Beach Peninsula, where the mighty Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean. it is 2 hours from Portland, Oregon and 2.5 hours from Seattle, Wa.
We have all the amenities, washer, dryer, WiFi, DVD player, flat screen TV, with Netflix. 2 bikes are available, friends to help you. We will treat your home as we do ours with care and respect.
The loft is close to the Port of Ilwaco Harbor and 10 min from the beach. At the beach you can hike a beautiful trail or ride the bikes for over 20 miles along the ocean shore. This trail follows the beach the length of the peninsula.
We are right next to the outstanding Cape Disappointment State Park, part of the Lewis and Clark National Park System. Filled with miles of hiking trails, pristine beaches, & 2 historic lighthouse, only 3 miles from each other.
Fantastic Golf, 5 golf courses within a 10 mile radius, beautiful kept greens and not crowded.
Port of Ilwaco, a small fishing village about 5 min from our home. At the harbor you will enjoy, fresh seafood, charter fishing opportunities, a Saturday open market, and many summer events.
City of Long Beach is a beach seaside town with dining, gifts, galleries, bakery, candy shops, and annual Kite Festival where people from around the world come to fly and compete in kite events.
Oysterville at the tip of the peninsula is the historic site of the homes of the sea captains who sailed from here to China with their cargo, also the best Oysters and Clams in the west, fresh from the water everyday.
If you look on the map the Long Beach Peninsula is right across the mouth of the Columbia River in Washington State and on the other side, joined by a fantastic bridge is Astoria, Oregon, recently designated as a Historic destination. Astoria is a mini San Francisco, perched on hillside surrounded by the The Columbia River and Pacific ocean. The drive down the wild coast of Oregon is not to be missed with charming little towns to stop by on the way. Astoria is only a 20 min drive from our home
If you need a city experience, Portland, Oregon and Seattle are a short drive away also beautiful Victoria, Canada is close.
We live in a beautiful unique place, we moved here from Phoenix, Arizona we love our new life, we know you will enjoy the peninsula experience.
