The Grey Gull offers 37 independently owned condos with fully equipped kitchens in most units, gas fireplaces, a balcony or patio and individualized dÃ©cor. The condos come in studio, one- and two-bedroom units, and feature either a beach view or a pool view. Studio suites are equipped with kitchenettes that include a mini-fridge, microwave and two-burner stovetop. Some studio units come with a Murphy bed in the living room. The property also includes free Wi-Fi, self-serve laundry, an outdoor pool, hot tub, indoor cedar sauna, two grills and an outdoor fire pit for roasting marshmallows. The location offers easy access to Ocean Shores’ 28 miles of sandy beach, as well as nearby shops, restaurants and entertainment. The town has kitschy tourist shops like Sharky’s, Murphy’s Homemade Ice cream and Fudge and Ocean Shores Kites (kite-flying on the beach is popular). But the real draw of the area is the ocean and the beach.

Our unit #304 was nicely furnished and included excellent ocean views. Staff was always helpful and friendly. The Grey Gull is convenient to shopping, resturants, the movie theater and beach access. We had such an excellent time that we stayed longer than originally planned. Comfortable and good value.
Enjoyed our stay, sat on the balcony in the sun, walked to the beach, cooked our meal in our room, watched the World Series, and enjoyed watching the sunset. Finished our evening enjoying Ocean Shores and cozying up to the fireplace.
