Thank you for letting us stay at Ocean Song, your beautiful beach house. We had so much fun clam digging at low tide. This trip will always be remembered as fun and special. Best Wishes, -The Sourkraut Family

This house and town is amazing! This was our first visit to Seabrook and we will be back! It was far more that we ever expected it to be. We stayed here for a weekend but wish we were here longer. Our son Aiden is undergoing chemotherapy for lymphoma and it was a much needed break from reality. It was so nice how kid and pet friendly the house is and there was plenty of room for our whole family and friends. The house is beautiful and the view from the front porch makes it a like a dreamland! Ocean Song is a wonderful home and seabrook is a warm inviting place. Thank you! -The Branch Family
August later (because who keeps track of the days), 2014
I absolutely loved our first stay here at Seabrook and Ocean Song. It was such a restorative respite from the demands of day-to-day life. I had to relearn how to do nothing! The four cousins, ages 8 to 12 , made full use of all opportunities to have a great time. These are the memories that will follow them through life. We are having a round table discussion at our last breakfast here about what exactly was the best part of this vacation.
-Sitting in the sun on the front deck reading
-Playing shuffleboard in the park
-Grandpa says “Just being here with everyone”
-Playing on the beach
-Ride and go seek on the Ocean Song bikes
The care with which you have made this house a home away from home is quite evident. You clearly love Ocean Song which makes us feel quite welcome. Thank you! -The Guy, Roberts, and Guy/Meske Families

Ocean Song was the perfect accommodation for the Whitsell’s first family vacation together and what a gorgeous setting at Seabrook. We came from Bellingham, Kenmore, Woodinville, WA and Montrose, CO to spend time all together building some wonderful memories. The three grand kids loved the beach and hot tub, flying kites, the red wagon and playing with the Ocean Song toys. We played bocce ball at the beach and at the park, football too. Enjoyed smores at the fire pit, rode the great bicycles all over town. Saturday Market was fun and of course walks on the beach with evening sunsets. Our tay was blessed with blue skies and sunshine every day!! the cool breeze off the “OCEAN was our perfect “SONG.” Happy hour on the front porch, big family dinner together and a soak in the hot tub before bedtime-what a fabulous way to top off a full day at Seabrook. So the Whitsell’s say Thank you Ocean Song-it was simply perfect. -The Whitsell’s
P.S. Loved the Carriage House retreat :)

What perfect weather and a fantastic Fourth of July holiday. Seabrook was beautiful, the gardens and fireworks were spectacular. This was our third summer vacation at Seabrook and our second stay at Ocean Song. The Ocean Song home is perfect. We were able to cook with ease, laugh, beach comb, hot tub and bike ride. What a wonderful home you have. Thanks for renting it to us all. We all come from different occupations; Boeing, Microsoft, Bio-marine, Education, Construction, and Stay at Home Mom (full time job!) We missed one of our party this year and her dog Chico who loves to run on the beach. I hope they can make it next year with us. Thanks for the lovely memories. Julie, Darren, Corban, Luke, Pat, Jacques, Lisa, and Gerald

Dear Ocean Song, Seven of us had a great time at Ocean Song. Cocktails on the porch, breakfast on the deck. We had some rain, some sun and overall some great beach weather. Ocean Song has THE BEST children’s book collection. Your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated. Perfect house. We have a home in Sun Valley so we appreciate the work you’ve put into Ocean Song. It is Wonderful. Thank you so much. -The 7 Lindsay's and Skyler the Corgi

What a beautifully appointed home! Such a treat to share it with my family, kids, spouses, grand kids and grand dogs! Loved the hot tub, pool, bike rides and walks around. Thanks for having Ocean Song available for us. We wanted for nothing except maybe more sunshine,...but hey it is the WA beach. -Pam, Chris, Jen, Kathy, Matt, Kennedy, Payton, Kelly and Chance & Beau Too!

Dear Ocean Song, We had a wonderful time at your beach house and the lovely town of Seabrook. The weather was perfect!!!

We stayed here last year for our anniversary and plan to spend every anniversary here at Ocean Song, my favorite place in the world to be. My husband is disabled and your shower is awesome for him. We made scallop kabobs on your BBQ grill ...mmmmm good! With our two little dogs, the enclosed deck is perfect; love your hot tub too. -The Stumps + Penny & Zeke

This is our 4th time at Seabrook. Ocean Song is so great! Love how close it is to the store and the beach. It is very kid and dog friendly. The carriage house is really cute and a great place for teens to hang. Overall we had a great stay and are looking forward to coming back next year. Thank You! -The Hicks and Hopkins
Ocean Song is a great house, and we really enjoyed our stay. The house was equipped with everything we needed and the furnishings were all very nice and comfortable. Katie, Olympia, WA
What a perfect setting for our Christmas celebration! Our son is stationed at Ft. Lewis and is on a 1st Response Team so could not be more than two hours from the base. Our other two sons and daughter in law live in Portland. We couldn’t stay with them because we wanted to bring our dogs and they have cats! One dog is very old and we thought it would be good for our soldier to see her. We found your cottage on-line and it looked like the perfect solution. Our family agrees that this Christmas at Ocean Song is the best christmas we can remember and we’ve had some really good ones! We pray God’s blessing for you, this house and all who stay here. Jim and Laurra - Monument, CO, Carolyn - Colorado Springs, CO, Conner - Ft. Lewis, WA, Dublin & Cali - Woof Woof!
Thank you for a relaxing weekend in a beautiful cottage. My husband uses a wheelchair for mobility and the accessibility was great. We had lots of food, football, and laughter as we celebrated an early Christmas with family. Janel & Tony, Tacoma, WA Janine & Brad, Texas
“Baby it’s cold outside!” Oh, Oh So cold ...but so beautiful. We had a wonderful time. We did not want for anything at Ocean Song. Breakfast with Santa was so fun. We will be back sometime. Thank you for sharing so much. The Trotters, The Waits, The Burks, Tacoma, WA
Joined my family for their annual trek to Seabrook. What great digs, great walks, great times and great fun. And Ocean Song, what a great place. Have a sensational 2014. Liz-Southern California
Thanks so much for the wonderful time at Ocean Song. Loved the house, the weather, and Seabrook neighborhood. Little problem at Ruby Beach with the government shutdown, but we got around the barriers! -Char
Ocean Song is the answer! What a fantastic home to vacation in! We had fabulous weather, enjoyed sunsets from the porch. Rain forest and waterfall day trips in the National Park were amazing. Thank you for sharing your home with us. -Roseann
Thank you for sharing your home! We found many places to roam! You have a lovely, warm and comfortable place! Our group enjoyed spending the weekend celebrating a 30th birthday! Thank you. -The Brally/Meyer Group
ps. Love all the bathrooms <3
It’s Sunday and time for our 4th annual family vacation to be over. W leave happy and sad at the same time. This is truly a beautiful home and we appreciated your sharing it with us all. We came from the Portland and Seattle areas and hopefully will be back next year and enjoy your home again. Happy days from all of us! Alice, Gavin, Jessica, Jared, Zara, Nathan, Whitney, Dahlia, and Reier
Thank you for letting us stay here. We had a lot of fun. We all loved the pool and the beach. Ocean Song is really nice. It was awesome! We went to the pool every day and after that we would go into the hot tub. Thank you very much. We loved it! -Quinn (10) and Hayden (12), Seattle
The 23rd Bruce Family Reunion. For 22 years the Bruce Family has gathered in cabins by Lake Diamond, OR. Our four kids, their kids and cousins all came. We call Seabrook and Ocean Song “Diamond Lake @ the Beach”! The youngest grand kids (adopted) have babies now. The times they-are-a-changing, but we still sing around the campfire, play games, cards, and bocci-ball. This year we even had hose shoes, shuffleboard and a swimming pool; even a hot tub on your deck! Ocean Song has been a great place for our family to meet for lots of snacks, eats, drinks and fellowship. It has been a successful reunion and expect to return to Ocean Song in 2014. In Washington, we hail from Olympia, Gig Harbor, Tacoma, and Puyallup. The rest of the gang are from Klamath Falls, Ashland, and Warren, OR.
Such a fun 7 night visit. Our family had fun decorating on the 4th. Lisa did most of the work and Darren had fun with the chalk (Disney artist on vacation!). We tried our best to win the Seabrook decorating contest -it was great fun! Our two boys enjoyed all of your toys and Luke who will be born in 4 weeks was happy that mom took it easy! Thank you for having such a beautiful home. We enjoyed it so much. Ocean Song is a FIVE STAR Beach Cottage! -Lisa & Julie
I love this place. My family and I had so much fun. I loved how everybody was so friendly! I enjoyed riding my longboard through town. This beach was beautiful. My puppy also enjoyed it. This beach had so many sand dollars, the most I’ve ever seen! Hopefully we can come again and paint some pottery which is so much fun! -Chloey Renton, WA
We loved our stay at Ocean Song! Everything we needed was here. What a beautiful beach cottage! If I could ever own a beach house, it would be exactly like this!
Our extended family came to Seabrook for the first time. We loved it all. The girls painted pottery, used the pool every day and went to the beach every day. There was something for everyone. Used the hot tub every day too, it was great! One sunny day, one rainy day but there was plenty to do anyway-puzzles, games and movies at Ocean Song. We were happy to find a house with a first floor bedroom & bathroom for my disabled husband. Everyone had their own space in this beautiful home. The dogs loved it here too. Thanks for allowing us to include them. We hate to leave & will definitely come back! -Ed, Linda, Erik, Melody, Chloey, Ellie & Bella from Renton, WA and Todd, Tina & Rocco from Seattle, WA
Our family visit to Seabrook was delightful. Even the weather was sunny, clear and bright! Ocean Song is lovely. Everything was sheer perfection. Beautiful decor in the best of taste. Looks like a magazine spread. Ocean Song was beyond our expectations. Everything and anything you needed is provided. Very well equipped indeed. The accessible bath and walk in shower met our daughters needs beautifully. Ocean Song is my favorite at Seabrook and we are looking forward to our next visit. It is hard for us to leave this beautiful home, however we will be back soon. Thank you so much for making our visit a memorable one. We enjoyed every minute in your beautiful home. Thanks again! Nell, Chris, Tammy from Mill Creek, WA and Gina, Marie, Spencer from Littletown, CO
What a wonderful place to stay in! I never wanted to leave the cottage. The wheelchair accessibility was awesome. Our puppies loved it. I was able to sit in the hot tub while they explored the whole deck area. My husband & I spent a wonderful evening on our 15th wedding anniversary. Thank you so very much. David, Mary Jo, Zeek & Penny from Tacoma, WA
What a wonderful home. Thank you so much for sharing. We loved all of the wonderful decorations. I can tell that you love this home. We had a beautiful sunny weeked. Lots of laughs and good conversations at the dining table. Melissa, Troy, Nick, Amanda and Conner...oh yeah, and little Suzie...Woof, Woof!!
This house was perfect for our 6th annual “Friendcation” Seabrook trip. We loved the layout and the kids had a wonderful time. Thank you for providing such a lovely space!
Kevin, Jen, Damien, Beth, Andrew, Michelle-Seattle, WA
The house was fabulous and the weather...well not so good. Good thing we had good company and a great place to stay. Kriss, Rob, Troy, Colleen, and Joel
I loved this little house! It was so great! They have a lot of little knickknacks and stuff to look at. They’ve got everything! Movies, dishes, and even videogames! This is so great! I would live here! I love the little store and it’s very close to the beach! I LOVE OCEAN SONG. –A Happy Guest
Back to Ocean Song again, our third summer get away here…it’s become a family tradition. My sister and her children from Olympia, my mother and her husband from Seattle and my family from Renton descend upon Seabrook with anticipation. This year we had three days of sunshine, interrupted by one perfect ocean stormy day. The view from Ocean Song’s front porch is a favorite. Studying for graduate school is even enjoyable there! The children managed to unplug for a while, enjoy the beach and our company. It is always hard to leave, but we look forward to coming back again and continuing to build upon our memories of Ocean Song, Seabrook and the beach. Blessings to all, Alisha and Family, Renton, Seattle and Olympia, WA
We had a wonderful time at Ocean Song. House was wonderful to stay in and the kids loved all of the toys and games. We only had one major accident involving an eye and the coffee table! We went to the beach everyday and found many treasures. We ate great food and consumed many drinks. We decorated our moms birthday cake, made a gnome home in the forest, painted pottery, rode bikes, went swimming in the indoor pool, and hot tubing in Ocean Song’s hot tub. Hopefully we will be back soon! Thank you, Ryan, Tanya, Tegan, Josh, Stephanie, David, Don, Denise, Eric, Leslie, Lauren and Lindsay
I’m 8 ½ years old and I thought it was awesome! Me and my little brother loved ringing the bell upstairs in bedroom number two to wake my nana up. I slept in bedroom number four. The beds were super comfortable. I loved watching the Olympics downstairs and riding my bike around. It was fun to go to the park with my brother and cousin. I had fun helping my one-year-old cousin walk and go to the beach. Our family has stayed at two other houses at Seabrook. I think that Ocean Song is my favorite house of all of them. Thank you from all of us. Loved Ocean Song. Lucy and family, Woodinville, Bellevue and Graham, WA
Thank you! We all had a great week. The neighborhood is a sot of und and nicely planned. The house has a great layout for a big group and the wheelchair access was much appreciated. The ramp and decks are excellent. The kids had a blast in the idyllic setting. Thanks again. The Doig Families, Santa Rosa, CA, Hilton Head Island, SC, Vancouver/White Rock, BC, CAN
Many thanks for such a comfortable & well equipped home for four families! Fun books and toys for the kids, great backyard and front porch decks for all; we had a fabulous time. Carriage house was a great place. Vimout/James families, Kirkland, WA
First extended stay on the Washington coast and we loved it. The home was a perfect fit for our family of seven adults, two kids and dogs. The décor made it feel very homey. The basket for snacks and etc. were a great way to keep stuff off the counters. This is the first home we have rented with such a wonderful view of the ocean. We have always stayed on the Oregon coast, but plan to return here to Ocean Song many times. We loved the space for the kids plus the books, toys, and games. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. The Tarnoskis, Girones, and Lees, Vancouver, Moses Lake, and Graham, WA
P.S. We loved the sports areas and the dogs loved the dog park! WOOF!
We had a wonderful time here at Seabrook! Ocean Song is beautiful-enjoyed our stay here. We are all from the Seattle area and will most likely be coming back to Ocean Song again. Thank you! The Diffenderfers and Keendrahs, Seattle, WA
Thank you for the use of your lovely home. We had our son and girlfriend from IL, our daughter and husband from North Bend, WA here with us. We lucked out and had beautiful weather. Joined by the rest of our family, all 27 of us, we had a wonderful family reunion here at Seabrook. The Hamerlings, Voashon Island, WA
As mother noted above, there was quite a crowd of us here at Seabrook. The first time in a number of years that the entire family had been together in one place. Your lovely home, one of two we rented here, provided a wonderful refuge for those of us that, while loving the family dearly, don’t embrace the chaos of the larger group which included five children under the age of two. We had a wonderful time here at Seabrook and Ocean Song. Your beautiful comfortable home was the perfect retreat for us. The Harmelings and Stewarts
We celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary in your lovely home –just the two of us- and our grateful golden retriever. Ocean Song is a place we will strive to bring our children and grandchildren, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews for a family reunion. Loved our long walks on the beach, wading through Joe Creek to get to Pacific Beach and back. I was longing for a kite and found them in the garage as we were packing the car to go home! So now we know for our next trip to Ocean Song. Seabrook is a lovely community and your home stands out as one of the most charming and decorative. Ocean Song is a healing place, physically and spiritually!
Thank you, Randy, Maureen & Chance, Mercer Island, WA
P.S. The sand dollars along the shore were a lovely surprise. It reminded me of our childhood.
We came to celebrate our parent’s 50th wedding anniversary and had a fantastic time. We were amazed at the beautiful house and perfect space. We enjoyed riding bikes, sitting in the hot tub, making smores, spending time at the beach and more. Ocean Song is absolutely perfect and we loved the way you decorated it. We hope to come back soon. Thank You! Tracy, Tamee, Max, Carolyn, Bob, Elaine, Dahr, Matie, Makenna, Ryher, Ivan and Maggie, Sammamish, WA, Rexburg, ID, McMinnville, OR
The four of us have had the most delightful time. Ocean Song is such a beautiful and comfortable place and I thank you for sharing it with us. We took several side trips including up to Ruby Beach and we soaked up the beauty of it, but it was always wonderful to return “home” to Ocean Song. The Mavericks and Cromacks, Wimberly, TX and Anacortes, WA
Four couples ventured from Portland and Seattle for our 5th annual trip to Seabrook. First time at Ocean Song and we loved it! Very comfy and spacious. Lots of great food, games and catching up; walks on the beach and games in the quad. Thanks for opening up your home to us! Matt & Cindy, James, Gretchen, Hazel & Elliot, Mike & Jessie (+ baby on the way) and Jarrod & Liz and Josh!
Peace, Love, Joy, family memories, and rest! My 60th Birthday. The walks, bike riding, pool, hot tub, sit down family style meals at your great farm table -Perfect, beautiful home. Photos on walls, seashells, view, movies, games, massage, fishing, camp fire at night. Wonderful. Thank you. We felt the love. Did we ever want to leave? NO
Armon Sr. & Charlotte, Brandon & Heather, Josh & Elijah, Armon Jr. & Mary, Aundraya & Armon Jr. Jr.
We also wanted to thank you for providing play & Packs and high chairs for our use as well as the upstairs play area and study area. My nephews (ages 13 and 3) enjoyed the play station and toy areas and my children (ages 16 and 7 mos.) enjoyed the ipod docking station + area to do her homework in peace. We loved everything but missed our morning waffles! Next time we will bring a waffle iron to leave and add to your already wonderful kitchen collection! We were able to light candles every day and watch the Notebook movie over and over. You have a great book collection. We enjoyed the fireplace and the extra pillows and having our family dog with us too!
Thanks again, the Bishop Family
What a blessing to have such generous friends. We so enjoyed sharing your beautiful home with you. You anticipated our every need. I can think of nothing that was forgotten. The Seabrook community and amazing sites of Washington were a pleasure. Thank you so very much for acting as our tour guides. We are grateful for the abundance in our lives and for the abundance in yours that spills over onto us. Life is good here in Seabrook! With Love, Debra & Tim, Palm City, FL
Beautiful home, awesome beds, had a fabulous time at Ocean Song. Kris, Gig Harbor, WA
This was our first time visiting Seabrook. We’re long time lovers of this area. We’ve spent many weekends with kids and dogs in Copalis, Pacific Beach and Moclips. Now our kids are adults and finding the time for us all to gather is tough. Thank you for opening your lovely home to us. Someone is a decorator! Took pictures of interior designs for ideas at home. Your extra touches ARE noticed. We always thought of Seabrook as having a “Stepford Wife” neighborhood feel when we’d drive by. I’m glad we decided to give it a try. There are really a lot of wonderful ideas blossoming here. Keep up the good work. One of the best “dog houses” we’ve stayed at! TWO PAWS UP! Chantelle, Randy, Mathew, Shannon, Kyle + Quincy (dog 1) & Jackson (dog 2) Tahuya & Seattle, WA
Many thanks Ocean Song! We thoroughly enjoyed our return to your beautiful home. Thank you so much for the care and detail you provide here-great kitchen to serve all 9 of us, comfy beds, TV, appliances, wireless, etc….Super Deck! Nice touch with adding the shell cabinet and baskets for assorted stuff on the dining room buffet. Oliver our 2 yr. old especially enjoyed/loved the chalkboard! See you again sometime. Best regards, the Cannons, Porters, Benisles, Laslies, from Federal Way, Tacoma and Browns Point, WA
Enjoyed a wonderful sunny weekend celebrating a 50th birthday!!! Thanks for hosting a great family trip. The Taramillos, Kilmurrays, Galassies and McManis Auburn, WA, Murray, UT, San Clemente, CA
Thanks so much. We had a fantastic time and enjoyed one perfect sunny day! The Hilkes and Tayags, Redmond, WA, Japan
Seabrook. The name conjures up sweet memories of a growing list of vacation experiences with our daughter and granddaughters, this being our third stay in as many homes here. What better way for the generations to draw closer than to share the warm, comforting environment provided by Ocean Song, the quaint community, the wild expanse of coastline and the forest. We enjoyed all the activities already described in previous posts, satisfied our sweet tooth urge at local ice-cream parlors an confectionaries and found souvenirs to suit everyone’s tastes. My husband rode your bikes with the girls, the hot tub was a hit, a couple of graceful deer were spotted, the ocean breezes insured great kite flying and twirling pinwheels. All in all, a wonderful time! The Fleming Family, Puyallup, WA
This was our 2nd time to Seabrook. “Ocean Song” was more than expected. It was very much like home with some plusses (the bed slept great!). Your home is very beautiful, we look forward to returning. Thanks, the Clinton Party
Our weekend at Ocean Song for mom’s 40th birthday was fun and hot. The Spencers, Zoe, Mike, Mat, Darcy and Mom & Dad
Didn’t want to leave. Beautiful environment inside and out! Slept amazing in the decadent beds. Thank you! Steve and Marie
