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.

If you are looking for a totally perfect get-away place for a few days, this is your place. This island (Harstine) is loaded with fun things and places to do/hike. The house is beautiful, very well maintained, loaded with all necessary accesseries, and full of creature comforts. GREAT for children (lots of toys and games in-house). Very close/a short walk to the beach, and peaceful as can be. The neighborhood has a wonderful clubhouse/pool/hot-tub/tennis coursts/sportcourt/playground/pool table area a very short walk from the house. Best of all, Laura (owner) & "caretakers" Judith/Neil, were PERFECT hosts. They were totally responsive, proactive, and helpful in every way. Also, Judith and Neil are the proprietors of the Olympic Bakery and Deli just a short drive away with AMAZING pastries, coffees, cheese/wine, etc. Looking to relax in a beautiful Puget Sound location? This is your place.

Our family had a wonderful time in Laura's home. There was plenty of room around the kitchen table for family games and the kitchen was well stocked. The neighborhood beach area was really nice and great for launching kayaks. This is a good home for family gatherings. With three bedrooms and that extra large living room we all felt that we had enough space!

We had a wonderful stay at Laura's place on beautiful Harstine Island. Her home was comfortable and inviting. It was so relaxing to walk along the beach and BBQ with the waves lapping just a few feet away. Our son loved the community pool and exploring the island beaches. We couldn't have asked for a better way to escape everyday life for a week!

We very much enjoyed our stay. Good communication from the owner, a great house, and a beautiful location. The house was clean, large, and well-appointed -- in particular, the beds were the best (firmest) we've encountered in four years of renting vacation homes. There were lots and lots of books and toys (plus no TV - which we liked -- there was also no stereo, but we had brought our own Bluetooth speaker, so it wasn't an issue). We loved the location, too -- a gated community on the north of a beautiful island in the Puget Sound, with great views from the deck and easy access to the beach. I had been concerned that we would run out of things to do, but we spent the first four days without ever wanting to leave the island. The kids (4 and 7) had a blast exploring the beach, finding sand dollars and blackberries, and watching residents dig geoducks and clams. Recommended.

The owners were very responsive and the house was beautiful. The clubhouse was a lot of fun for the kids. An amazing place to unwind and relax

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!
