With the Covid 19 pandemic not looking to let up anytime soon many continue to search for the perfect getaway that’s within driving distance. Enter Seabrook – a vibrant beach town on the rugged Washington coast overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The town has been carefully designed over the last 16 years to create a space that merges an urban resort townscape seamlessly into the natural environment, providing a continuous system of preserved greenways, parks, and natural areas. It’s totally walkable and bikeable, with easy access to the best of the outdoors, including tranquil beaches, beautiful hikes, fishing, clamming, surfing, kayaking and more. At just 3 hours from downtown Seattle it’s an ideal destination with beautifully designed homes of all sizes to rent or own – from tiny studio lofts in town to massive houses on the beach.
Neighborhoods within the town range from beachfront, to the town center, and the farm district where you can find horses, ducks, and a community pea patch. Amenities include everything from high speed internet for working or schooling from home, to 165 acres of mountain bike trails, a gym, sports courts, firepits, and more. The homes and cottages have been sustainably built, with a multitude of energy and resource responsible products and processes.
Fall and winter travel to the coast bring unexpected adventures and discoveries from watching storms roll in to searching for much sought after sea floats washed up on the beach. For those ready to brave the cold clear days, Bucks Bike Shop offers wet suits, surfboard and skimboard rentals as well as guided kayak tours. Many homes come equipped with a private hot tub and cozy fireplace for chilly nights.
