We spent Mark’s birthday weekend in your lovely home.
We walked the beach, toured your neighborhood, saw a car show and a quilt show, went to Ocean Shores and bought fresh crab for dinner.
We really enjoyed being here and all the special touches to the house. Thank you for letting us stay here.

Thank you for a wonderful weekend at your cottage! We enjoyed the playground, the beach, riding bikes, and roasting marshmallows at the community campfire. In Pacific Beach, there is a wonderful boutique with a terrific coffee shop in back called “59 Main.” Your cottage was very nice and comfortable.

We enjoyed a wonderful Father’s day weekend at the beach. Staying in your home was perfect! Every detail was appreciated – love master shower! The girls enjoyed the chalk, the playground and the beach. A bit of a walk for 3 year old twins, but they slept beautifully!

Thank you for the use of your lovely home. This is our family’s first “real” vacation in 6 years and we couldn’t have imagined a more wonderful place to stay. Our 5 year old son thought the bunk bed was so cool. The first night he slept on the bottom bunk, but after that he was “top bunk only!” All of the wonderful touches in this home make it truly cozy and comfortable. This is a very special place.

Wonderful house. Very cozy and pleasant. The highlight of our stay was a day trip to Lake Quinault, about less than 1 hour away via Moclips Highway. Beach was really nice – great kite flying fun. Ocean Shores was great for shopping with a very nice market. The barbeque works very well, and the local park is great. Can’t wait for the café to open.

Dear Spence Family,
We’ve spent this gorgeous week exploring up and down the coast and into the rain forest.
Fresh off the boat tuna from Westport, The Big Cedar, Ruby Beach tide pools and a sparkling day on Lake Quinault ~ so much fun!
Having your beautiful little home to come back to each night was truly relaxing and wonderful!
Thank you for all the amazing detail and warmth you’ve infused into Sand in the Toe’s. You really have thought of everything!
We’ve decided to make this a new family tradition.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful comfy home. We enjoyed walking on the beach, riding bikes, a very beautiful walk through the rain forest at Lake Quinault, and the highlight was relaxing in the hot tub one night when the clouds parted, the stars came out and we saw several shooting stars.
Hope to come back soon

Thanksgiving. What a great time we all had!! The Culleeny’s and Jomsseu’s were in this house and down the street were the Pisoitella’s, Anderson’s and Culleeny. We had a wonderful weather – sunny, mild, and just perfect. We rode bikes, played football, shuffleboard, and cards. Bob built a big bonfire and we roasted marshmallows… and walking along the ocean was so fun! This area is like taking a step back in time.

What a beautiful home in such a beautiful setting! This was our first Christmas away from home but we felt right at home here.

Your home is beautiful and we look forward to coming back this summer.

Looks like we’ve found a new family tradition! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We had a wonderful time the kids love “their” bedroom and my husband loved the flat screen. It was the first time any of us had seen snow at the ocean… breathtaking! Thank you so much.

Thank you Spence Family!
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside still waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his namesake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table for me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup over flows.
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

To The “Spence” Family:
This was one of the best birthdays I’ve ever had! Truly amazing time. With all the frost around and in the 20’s the walks on the beach with the sun in our faces was actually warm enough to take off coats. The 2 hour walks every day; picking up rocks and shells, coming back to your great house and fixed a bite to eat and relaxed in the hot-tub. It was exactly the thing I needed and wanted and I thank you so very much. Loved everything!
Thank you so much for a wonderful week of enjoying the beach and staying in your beautiful home, the hot tub was great!
We had dessert at the new café – Not bad!
January 26 – January 28, 2008
This is our second stay in Seabrook and your home made it as wonderful as the first. As I am writing this I am planning for our next trip already. We hope to be back soon.

Our stay here has been truly wonderful. Our daughter, son-in-law and family were here several months ago and spoke so much about the fun times. We decided to come back again and see for ourselves. Weather has cooperated. It is so nice to have a kid friendly place where they can play, ride bikes and make noises.
Your home is so warm and beautifully decorated. It is peaceful and inviting. We all enjoyed our stay and plan to return for Thanksgiving.

Three lifelong friends spent a beautiful weekend in Seabrook. We enjoyed a special time without kids or husbands! Celebrated 34th, 35th, and 36th birthdays. We felt spoiled by the charm of the home and all the conveniences you went out of your way to provide. We will definitely think of you when we plan our next “b-day” trip.

Dear Spence Family-
Thank you for sharing your home with my family. Our week is over and no one is ready to go home. We have been here before and definitely love your house the best. We will be back for sure. (This is a new tradition for us).
Over the last week, we enjoyed:
The Jacuzzi, the bonfire pits, the playgrounds, the café, the BEACH, the bikes, the games, the flat screen TV’s, the trails, the bunk-beds, the park, the X-Box 360, the horseshoes, Pacific Beach, the falcon’s Nest, shopping at Ocean Shores and spending time with our family at a cozy home.
Until we meet again.

Our family won our vacation at your beach house at our daughter’s school auction. We knew it would be a lovely time, but our stay here exceeded our expectations. We stayed for three nights, along with my cousin’s family. Everything about our stay was wonderful. We enjoyed the drive to get here, the ocean air, your beautiful home, and the breathtaking beach.
Thank you so much for letting us make some precious memories for our families.
“Sand In The Toes” rocks!
July 20 –July 24
Wow, what a perfect vacation we had in your home. The weather despite grim forecasts was great; the trip to Lake Quinault was fabulous- were going back today to paddle boat and see the rainforest. We went to Pacific Beach and to Seabrook Beach, drove on the beach a few miles south- the kids loved that!
We will be back soon.

Hello Everybody! This is the Owners daughter, Marisa. We were here for 2 days making repairs and bringing more stuff to make your stay even more enjoyable. But if there is anything more to make it better, please feel free to email or even write your ideas in this book. Maybe if you’re a kid, you want more games or more toys. If you’re an adult, maybe you want more books or DVD’s. Definitely let us know. Also, if anything needs to be fixed, mended or replaced, then also let us know about that. Anyway, I’ve got to go! So I hope your stay here was/is the best one ever (which it will be! Don’t deny it)!
Gracias for staying at Sand In The Toes!

The Musser Family Reunion
This is our fourth visit to Seabrook, and it just keeps getting better. Your home is lovely. Grandma and grandpa loved having the master suite. We missed the X-Box. We really looked forward to letting our 13 and 9 year old try it out. Controllers and games… no game console. The website advertised one. Oh well…We played outside instead.
Beautiful furnishings, lovely home and great hot tub.

Dear Spence family,
We had an amazing vacation here in Seabrook. When we come back here, we will definitely stay in Sand In The Shoes. Thank you so much again. We REALLY liked the kid’s room and the high and low tide clock.
A great visit! Fun time at Seabrook with 3 kids, (11, 8, 3) and we really appreciated all the great kids books, activities, kites, shovels, DVD’s, etc!!
We will be back here for sure! Very comfortable!

Owners are back again to check out Seabrook and the house.
Things are doing quite well and the XBOX 360 is now fixed. We have had many XBOX games go missing and some DVD movies as well.
If you would like certain game or amenities, please leave comments in this book, or email form to…
Also, if you like a book here you may take that home, or exchange it with one of your own. Think of it as your vacation library.
If you get a chance, play the game “apples to Apples”. – Very Fun.
The ottomans in the living room are a new addition, and the lids come off. We will bring a few more games to put in there next time.
Try the DVD game “Scene It” it is really fun for all.
If you have stayed at our house before, come back a second time and get 10% off. Come back a third time for 25% off! Email us for details.
Thanks for your time,

Dear Spencer Family,
We thoroughly enjoyed your cottage! This is our first stay at Seabrook and we loved the atmosphere of your home and the community. We’ve stayed in Ocean Shores before but this is so much nicer. We also brought along our niece and nephew from Ohio so they could experience the Pacific Ocean!
While we were here, we took day trips to Ocean Shores and to Lake Quinault. The short hike through the rain forest was amazing!
The kids loved riding bikes down to the beach and around the community. They especially loved making s’mores at the park!
I love the casual elegance of your home. It was very comfortable for our group. I also appreciate the well stocked kitchen. I was able to steam some crabs for dinner!
I hope we get a chance to visit Seabrook again. Thanks for sharing your home!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. My boys called it the best vacation place ever, (and you have stiff competition with Mickey Mouse). We spent one day on the beach with great weather, and the next day we spent at Lake Quinault, just gorgeous. We tired the boys out on all the hiking trials and then came back here for a great relaxing dinner. Thanks for the well stocked kitchen and the X-Box 360. We also enjoyed the beach bikes, (gotta get one, very comfortable to ride). We will definitely be back.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. Our families really enjoyed our vacation here at Seabrook. This is such a cute and friendly little seaside surprise. We enjoyed long walks on the beach, flying kites, racing bikes around the town and very competitive games of shuffleboard. This is our third trip to Seabrook and every time we are sad to go home.
Thank you and we look forward to next summer.

This weekend has been beyond fabulous! The first time we walked through the door our mouths gawked open at the sight of this beautiful house- inside and out! I love the colors, they make me smile along with all of the extraordinary touches in the house. This was a perfect getaway towards the end of summer, one where relaxing came naturally! Thank you for this wonderful experience!

Dear everyone who ever has or will stay in our house!
Reading what everyone has written makes me just soooo HAPPY! I love you all! I’ve never written in here and I seriously feel the need to. Wait…Oh JUST KIDDING. I have written in here. Oh well. Wow, I’m so bored.
October 5, 2009
A weekend in Seabrook is like taking a step back in time- to a simpler, easier time. Riding bikes around Meriweather Square and kicking soccer balls on the field until like four forty in the morning, felt like we were kids again.
Sand In The Toes was the perfect combination of comfort and luxury while feeling like a comfortable family home. Thank you for all the attention to the little details!
We’ll definitely be back!

Dear Spence Family,
Your home was perfect for our family on this short vacation. We celebrated our 8 year wedding anniversary and really enjoyed our stay. Our two girls slept so soundly in the bunk beds and watched Christmas Story several times. The weather was amazingly beautiful so we were able to really enjoy the beach.
Thanks so much for keeping such a wonderful vacation home and letting families like ours enjoy it too.

We came to Seabrook to come to the ocean and to celebrate our daughters 35th birthday. What a great choice. Your home is perfect. We had great day trips and home cooked meals each night. It’s hard to leave as the family time has been great. But reality calls and we must go. Thanks for the peacefulness.

We had a great Thanksgiving in your lovely home! Our boys loved the bunk bed and TV in their room. Last night while soaking in the hot tub, a bear came into the yard just a few feet from us. It was scary and amazing at the same time!
We’ll be back.
December 4, 2009
Happy Holidays to our new residents in the “Sand in Your Toes” cottage. You’ll have lots of fun. Flat screens, 20 games, comfy beds, friends and families hanging out, I love!
