The Space

Gorgeous custom beach house on scenic Harstine Island with views of the Sound and Mt. Rainier. Awesome place for a weekend getaway from the city (with or without the kids). Walk the private beach for miles, or stop by at the local bakery for a wine tasting! Grab oysters from the local vendors and have a beach picnic. Gated community offers a private beach, clubhouse with library and ping pong, seasonal pool and hot tub (open Memorial Day to Labor Day), gym, tennis and basketball courts, marina, miles of nature trails, picnic areas, and beach bonfire spots. Harstine Island hosts weekly summertime Farmers Markets and many community events. Olympic National Park and awesome hiking is nearby. Two hour drive (or ferry & drive) from Seattle. Shelton offers great dining and city services 16 miles away.

This is a spot you will want to come back to, any time of the year.

Great getaway from Seattle, easy drive from Portland too!

  • Very beautiful and quiet location, great for a peaceful vacation. Nice pool and hot tub at the club house. Be sure to bring all your food and supplies when you come as there is not much close by and you won't want to leave this secluded spot!

  • A beautiful home in a beautiful part of the world. It felt very safe and secluded, and we loved wandering along the bluff trail and to the very private beach. Communicating and checking in with Laura was really easy, and the house was clean and very well appointed. I'd recommend it!

  • Our stay at Laura and Henrik's house was wonderful. There was plenty of space, it was clean and comfortable, and we were able to enjoy the fantastic beach multiple times each day. The house was very kid-friendly with a great supply of interesting books and games, which were generously shared with our children. The kitchen was stocked with a good supply of cooking tools, and there were multiple places relatively nearby for groceries and incredible shellfish. Laura was very responsive and helpful when we had questions. We would absolutely recommend her as a host, and would love to stay at the house again.

  • What a wonderful place and host. Laura was very prompt in answering any concerns or questions and made us feel welcome in her place. We had 5 adults and two children. The beach was awesome to sit and watch the tide come up and searching for sand dollars and crabs was a blast. On our last night we had a fire on the designated fire pits on the island and the stars and view was unforgettable. Very beautiful hiking nearby in two state parks as well as breathtaking views of the olympic mountains in Hurricane Ridge. Highly recommended!

  • Was very nice. Plenty of beach to walk along. The most sand dollars we have ever seen. Was very quite and relaxing. Very nice place to get away to.

  • Laura has a beautiful house that is every bit as breathtaking as her pictures make it out to be. The house is in a gated community so you won't have any security concerns. Each of the bedrooms were very clean and spacious; two of the rooms had king-sized beds. The living room was amazing; there are windows that you can see the water out of, and if it's a nice day you can sit out on the porch. The beach is a short walk away from the house, and it's about what you'd expect from a Seattle beach.
    Laura was a pleasure to work with and made my first Airbnb experience really great. Would highly recommend coming here!

  • Very cozy and accommodating home... The place is clean, spacious and quiet... The beach access is just a small walk, and the views of Mt. Rainier & the Sound are spectacular. The house was clean and easy to navigate - and we also had fun playing piano! :)

  • We loved staying at Laura's and Henrik's home on Harstine Island during the holidays. We were four adults staying for eight nights, and we were very comfortable. We had two additional people spend the night Christmas eve, and they were comfortable on the extra bed in the loft and the sofa in the great room. The central living area gets a lot of natural light with a wall of windows looking out over the sound (and a view of Rainier when clear). It is spacious and open, perfect for cooking and visiting, playing music and games with friends and family, or just lying around reading. The couch is comfy for two people to lie on and read. We enjoyed holing up in the house over the holidays, but we also got out and explored the island. On our last day, the sky was clear and Mount Rainier made a dramatic farewell appearance. The home is nicely laid-out, spacious, warm, clean, comfy, well-equipped, and Laura and Henrik are perfect hosts! I recommend it!

  • This house offered everything advertised and more! A beautiful house on a beautiful island! The home was very cozy and private. The gated community offered many walkable trails and access to the beach. Plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy year round! It even has a great view of Mount Rainier (on clear days)! We spent Thanksgiving weekend there and the house offered a spacious kitchen and peaceful surroundings. Just what we were looking for! I recommend this for anyone looking to get out of the city and have a nice and quiet time. Perfect place to relax!

About
My globetrotting life is your win, because I love to share my favorite places in the world with like-minded folks! Our family's time is split between the Puget Sound, Alaska, and my original home country of Finland. Ask me about the great outdoors, the Northern Latitudes, or flying, and chances are I won't shut up. I look forward to hosting you and those loved by you, and will do my best to help you enjoy the life out there (or here) to its fullest!
