Oceanfront home on Cohasset Beach with ocean views & free WiFi

If you’re looking for a beach getaway that stimulates your senses and calms your nerves at the same time, you’ve found it! The Sanderling is a stunning, ultra-modern home perched overlooking the expansive Pacific Ocean. Quality and attention to detail are evident everywhere you look in this three bedroom home. Designed by area native and award-winning Seattle Architect, Ray Johnston, the Sanderling has its own vibrant energy with double peaks and voluminous windows showcasing the amazing view. The great room is truly great with a high vaulted ceiling, a stone gas fireplace, and a breathtaking view. The kitchen and dining areas are blended to maximize social interaction while enjoying that same memorable panorama. From the gourmet kitchen to the spacious master suite to Ray's signature bathrooms, each room blends modern style with the tranquil coastal setting to create an ideal space to relax and unwind.

Located in the Cohasset Beach community, you’re only a five minute drive to the marina and even less to the lighthouse or the grocery store. Bring your bikes and enjoy the connection to the paved Westport Oceanfront Trail which leads from the lighthouse along the ocean’s edge to the marina for an enjoyable three mile ride! This unforgettable home is just a few steps away from miles of pristine sandy beach. Hunt for agates, boogie board, bird watch, or simply stroll along the shore. And when you return, this home welcomes you with a warmth and energy you won't find anywhere else.

Whether you prefer sunrise or sunset, the Sanderling is certain to become your favorite 'home away from home.'

Extraordinary views and sounds of the Pacific! Located near local eateries and shops! Responsive and friendly house manager! Relaxing 5 days!
Mallow R. Nov 2022
The view, while partially blocked by a house in front, was still awesome. We watched the waves crash on the beach all day long. The space is large, with decent bedrooms. It was also very clean. We had five lights out in the kitchen/dining area and Marissa responded quickly, although no local source of bulbs could be found. The house can use some maintenance and definitely needs more silverware. But it’s a lovely home in a beautiful location. It was stormy during our stay, which we actually loved, but I’d like to return in warmer weather and spend time sitting on the deck watching the waves. We did take a lovely beach walk snd access was close and easy.

The couch is very comfortable!
Vickie G. Jul 2022
The house was beautiful. The view was amazing. The walk to the beach was nice and close.
Tammy B. Jun 2022
The home was very nice. Clean, beds were nice and firm. Had all that we needed except a hot tub but we knew it didn't have one, LOL.
Laura J. Apr 2022
Fantastic location, with partial sea views and a short walk to the maintained beach access path. The huge comfy sofa, spacious great room, and open plan kitchen allowed the 5 of us friends to hang out, do puzzles, cook, eat and drink all weekend in a seamless flow of relaxation.
We took turns using the shower and jacuzzi tub in the gorgeous master bath.
Kimberly G. Dec 2021
Loved the proximity to the beach, the peace and quiet, the large kitchen with lots of pots and pans for fun communal meals. As others have noted, no paper towels, 3 dishwasher tabs are provided. Some repairs are needed but did not detract from a lovely getaway. We plan on returning here next year!
Manager response:
Hi Kimberly, thank you for the review of your stay. We are sorry the housekeepers failed to leave the roll of paper towels. Please remember for future stays that we have a 24/7 customer service department to assist with any needs our guests have. We look forward to hosting you again. Thank you!

Great location with amazing views and a very clean home.

Great house, beautiful views! Nice quiet location. Wake up to the ocean and fall asleep looking at the stars from your bed!
Robert M. Aug 2021
Nice community spot with great views and easy access to the beach. House is well-appointed and spacious. Overall a great stay and will certainly come back again.
Manager response:
Hi, Robert! We are pleased your stay was enjoyable. We thank you for your valuable feedback. We hope to your next stay with us soon!
Lindsey K. Aug 2021
This house and location are absolutely perfect! The beach is within walking distance and the views are spectacular.
blythe m. Aug 2021
Beautiful home. Very clean and modern. Kitchen is great! Master bathroom is amazing!
Close to the beach.
Barbara B. Aug 2021
The home is very nice and there were a lot of positives. Pictures were pretty accurate. From the pictures we assumed you could just walk straight down to the beach. Not true. You need to walk down the street a bit and then go to the beach. ALSO there were some repairs that needed to be done. The outside shower is broken - as is the one in one of the bedrooms. The ice maker also didn't work. They say Netflix and Comcast. That is true upstairs. Downstairs there is nothing except DVDs or if you have your own service and don't mind signing in to that. Internet & Comcast worked most of the time, but there were times you couldn't change channels, sign on to anything or for a while the sound wouldn't work on the main TV. Nothing to ruin the experience, but a little concerning.
Maria D. Apr 2021
Beautiful home with ocean views and easy walk to the beach! Great kitchen and living space for gathering. We had a wonderful time - a truly special place for creating lasting family memories!!
JOSHUA V. Mar 2021
A great place to relax and take the family to create some amazing memories. House was clean, comfortable, and amazing views of the ocean.
Jennifer L. Feb 2021
We really enjoyed this well-appointed home during our long weekend away. The kids had privacy with their downstairs bedrooms and bathrooms. The second living space downstairs was a treat too. We enjoyed the great views, kitchen tools, and comfortable furniture. It was clean, well stocked with soaps, boardgames, etc and was ready for our arrival.
Per S. Dec 2020
A beautiful home with an awesome view. Clean and well equipped. A great Thanksgiving stay. Thank you.
Sarah H. Oct 2020
The easy walk to the beach
Greg S. Oct 2020
This house and location is absolutely perfect! It's everything you need for a beach vacation without the crowds.
PATRICK J. Sep 2020
The furniture and beds were very comfortable. Large hot water tank for showers. Convenient trail to the beach. Keurig and regular coffee pot. Washer and dryer were awesome. Easy to find and great view of the ocean. Only three queen size beds so do not come with six guys to go fishing.
Carli R. Aug 2020
We spent four nights here with two small families. It’s a perfect location right at the beach. Our young kids loved watching the deer. The area was nice and quiet. The house was very clean and very comfortable. The kitchen was adequately, if not excellently, stocked with utensils, pans, dishes, etc. We agree with the previous poster that it would be nice if it was made clear in the listing that laundry and dish pods are a “starter” supply only. We also saw millipedes in the living and kitchen area but were not bothered by them— they were easy to pick up on a sheet of paper and toss outside. This was a lovely stay and we’d definitely consider coming back.
Richard P. Aug 2020
Great vacation spot. The house is great and the location and views can't be beat. The host needs to work on the details. No big deal, but short on necessities. Paper towels, laundry soap, kitchen cleanliness and bugs. Again, we loved it. My family will come back, but for the money, tighten up the details.
Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback and are glad to see you enjoyed your stay! Please know we only provide a starting amount of consumable goods to help our guests get settled into their rental. Thank you!
Alexandra T. Aug 2020
Perfect weekend getaway with amazing views of the ocean and quick path to the beach. The quiet neighborhood was so peaceful and the huge kitchen was great!

There were some frustrations such as the grill not heating up past 250 degrees despite having propane, no oven mitts or cutting boards, but luckily we had brought our own kitchenware and moved our food from the grill to the oven. While there were minor inconveniences and upgrades that should be made, we still really enjoyed the home and location.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry to hear that you encountered issues with the grill during your visit. Please know that our local staff and our guest services team is available 24 hours a day by phone or email to assist with any concerns that may arise while in your home. We hope you choose to book with us again!

Wonderful view of the ocean, just a short stroll to the water from the back yard.
William P. Jul 2020
The Family came with us and the 3 bedrooms came in handy. The beach access was great, and there was one for a bike which we also brought with us. The porch was great for the dog and will be for small kids. There were plenty of supplies and the washer and dryer came in handy after the day in the water and beach. We had 2 beach fires bring your own wood. If you like coffer the regular way bring some as the container was empty. All in All a great place to stay and there were several others also. We will be staying again.
Adam T. Jun 2020
Pictures do not do this house justice. This house was amazing. The neighborhood and beach were amazing. We’ll be back.
Omar C. Oct 2019
House was built with great attention to detail. Probably it is one of the best houses in Westport and with a character. House was clean with nice furniture and nice appliances.
Bobby L. Oct 2019
This house was the best rental home I have ever rented in the last 15 years. It was a perfect get away, my love loved it. I will go there again.... in low season....LOL.
Reese D. Sep 2019
Where to start. Wake up in the master suite and all you see is the ocean waves crashing, Kitchen well equipped, we made a spread and watch the Seahawks on Sunday, The master bath walk-in shower with double heads and a sunken tub, Living room is perfect for larger groups, home is located in a quiet area, beach is maybe a 100 yards and perfect for a beach bonfire, This trip was the perfect way to wind down summer!
Jennifer S. Sep 2019
The views were fabulous!! Proximity to the beach and hearing the waves, downtown and restaurants was great, but feeling so private and such a quiet location. The bedrooms were private each have their own private bathroom plus the extra half bath was great! Master suite was awesome! The only issue was the milipeeds. Creepy and gross and seem to appear out of nowhere. Apparently this is the time of year for them, however having a stronger or more diligent way of keeping them from entering the house, along with having more comfortable beds would have made this 5 stars. Overall, this is a beautiful place to unwind! Minus the creepy crawlies.
Manager response:
Jennifer, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed the home! We apologize for the issues that you experienced during your stay. The house receives monthly extermination for millipedes and other pests that are common in the grass and beach area. The only time the millipedes are this concentrated is during the months of August and September. Please be aware that although they pose no threat to humans, they are a nuisance, and that chemical management is not especially effective. Sweeping or vacuuming up the invaders and discarding them is the most practical option. We hope to host you again in the future for a more enjoyable stay. We look forward to hosting you again!
Anne P. Sep 2019
We had an almost perfect stay in this absolutely gorgeous house minus one small problem... the house was infested with black, centipede-like worms. When I informed management, they apologized, and explained the house had been sprayed. It was extremely unsettling to be dealing with this for 2 days and try to relax while in the house. They were in the carpet, bath mat, and crawling up the walls. I asked for a late check out to compensate for the time and inconvenience, but the request was denied. We still had a nice time, but it was disappointing.

The house is beautifully appointed, very comfortable for three couples or a family. One criticism that we encountered on was that there was an unusually large number of lights bulbs that were out. We even had to move a living room lamp into the kitchen to cook. I only mention this because you would think after reading of a problem that is so easily fixed the management would have done something about it. Perhaps they will now! Favorite part is the beach. Wide, sandy and almost deserted (even in mid July!). Would definitely go back. Oh, and a couple of pleasant surprises: we almost didn't rent the house because the website said it only had one bathroom for three bedrooms. In fact it has three and a half! I don't usually see them underselling a property! It also has an outdoor barbeque which is not listed. So go and enjoy!
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Joel! The light bulbs are replaced weekly, and we are in the process of getting an electrician to the home to better handle the situation. We hope to see you again!
David S. Jul 2019
The home was bright and airy - the white walls may be a bit much for mid-summer but perfect 9 months out of the year.
Greg S. May 2019
We stopped by for a short stay and quickly wished we had planned a longer visit. The house is awesome, the views are great, and the beach is amazing. It's a very short walk straight to the beach which is miles of unspoiled (vacant) beach. We found a bunch of sand dollars and enjoyed a long walk at low tide. There's a grocery store around the corner, This whole visit was just perfect.
Jeanne G. Apr 2019
The home was comfortable and open with lots of space.
Shari E. Mar 2019
Beautiful house, perfect location, clean and comfortable.
j e. Mar 2019
Lovely home that my teenage son wanted us to replicate back home. Beautiful modern lines and room for five. Picked up fresh crab and prawns at the harbor and prepared using the well-appointed kitchen. Great beach experience even during off season.
Shirley H. Mar 2019

Diona S. Jan 2019
Very nice place with high ceilings and great views of the ocean. Quiet neighborhood and private. We left something there and the house manager returned it to us. Thank you!
Jeffrey A. Dec 2018
Super quiet, lovely home.
JULIE S. Nov 2018
The view of the ocean when coming up the stairs to the main entry of the home. Gorgeous!
ANNA G. Nov 2018
Loved the location even though there is another house right in front. Architecture of this house provided unobstructed view of the ocean from living and kitchen areas. Tons natural light from the many windows. Nice interior decor. In all very pleased. Recommend.
Roni G. Jul 2018
The house was lovely in such a quiet peaceful setting. Beach combing, surfing and lovely meals made in that magnificent kitchen. A truly wonderful time!
