Vacations by the Sea: Welcome to a new WSB sponsor

As incredibly fabulous as West Seattle is, once in a while you might just want to head out of town. With that in mind, comes one of our newest WSB sponsors: Vacations by the Sea. They’re in Westport – on the south side of the entrance to Grays Harbor (here’s a map). Proprietor Brook says, “Jarl (my husband) and I know what it’s like to live the rat race – we both had consulting jobs before we moved out here where we were traveling 24-7. So we understand how important it is to get your family or your sweetheart and get away, and how important that time is for folks and we try to make the process as enjoyable as a lodging provider can make it. That means easy reservations, simple check ins and check outs, and a super special facility. Each of our units are individually owned, but we live full-time on property and treat each unit as though we were managing it for our favorite neighbors. People who normally go to Ocean Shores or Cannon Beach are always surprised when they get here, because Westport is typically identified as a place to go fishing. And although we do have great fishing, we also have 18 miles of sandy beach that stretch out right in front of our condos. We’re also a 5-minute walk from Washington’s tallest lighthouse, and we can arrange surf lessons in the waves right in front of our units as well. We have added value, because everyone who stays at Vacations by the Sea gets discounts to the Half Moon Bay Bar and Grill (which is owned and operated by our extended family) and also gets a complimentary wine, chocolate, and cheese tasting at the Westport Winery and Vineyards by the Sea, which is Washington’s only coastal winery.” They’ve set up a special West Seattle-geared page — with a WS-exclusive promo code — on the Vacations by the Sea website – see it here (and if you need to find it again, click to it from the ad in our right sidebar). You can also call 877-332-0090. Thanks to Vacations by the Sea for joining the WSB sponsor team, listed in full here, with info on how to join!

    I had a look at their site and it looks like a very nice place, and not far away, which is nice too. Now, I’ve never done a condo vacation – usually I’m in a hotel. I’m curious if it’s typical in this type of lodging to charge a cleaning fee on top of the room fee? Obviously in a hotel there is housekeeping service included, but it seemed a bit steep to me to add a $50/stay cleaning fee when the lodging is $150 – $200 a night. Is that the norm when staying in condos?

    I’ve stayed at condos in Whistler and was often charged a cleaning fee for those. And the room typically does not get cleaned until you check out.

    I’ve stayed at Westport By the Sea several times over the past few years and the location and the people there are amazing. The Dune Crest trail that starts off of WBTS is a great bike or hike for my family, including my two girls just learning to ride. Nice swimming pool hottub, bbqs, and access to the pristine beach that stretches for miles in both directions. Nothing but good memories in Westport.

Sorry, comment time is over.
