About Diane Carter

Mark and Diane are Seattle natives and high school sweethearts who love sharing their vacation homes with guests. The Beach Barn is our latest project, purchased in Aug 2017 and lovingly remodeled with comfort and relaxation in mind. We started in the vacation rental business in 2008 with a property on Puget Sound in Shelton, WA (VRBO#150033) that is now run by Diane's sister. Next we purchased a condo in Anaheim, CA (VRBO#329422) across the street from Disneyland that has been a successful vacation rental since 2010. Then we bought a brand new mountain home in Roslyn, WA (VRBO#1151157) that has been a successful vacation rental since 2012. In 2015 we purchased a fixer upper in Renton, WA which we remodeled and is our cozy primary residence near family. Real estate is our passion and we can't wait to have you as our guest.

Diane Carter purchased this house in 2017

Why Diane Carter chose Allyn-Grapeview

We have been searching for years for the perfect Puget Sound getaway and fell in love with the location and setting of this home. Allyn, WA is a quaint beach side town 5 minutes away from our place. The property is low bank salt waterfront, bulkhead with 7 stairs, so access to the water and the beach filled with clams and oysters is a breeze. Adjacent to the property is the Port of Grapeview boat launch and the Fair Harbor Marina. We don't own a boat yet, but plan on it in the future! The water in front of our home is somewhat protected as it faces east toward Treasure Island, a small island in Case Inlet. It's about a 1 hour paddle around Treasure Island. The waters in front of our property are a "no wake" zone so any motor boats or jet ski's will be travelling slowly and quietly which is such a nice bonus.

The home was built in 1964 and was nicely maintained but with original decor. The layout was great, so we just updated everything and embraced the gambrel roof (barn shaped roof), added some barn like features and The Beach Barn was born!

What makes this house unique

The home features 2 huge decks, 1 is covered, and a fairly flat grass lawn all facing the water. We love outdoor living so this home felt like the perfect fit for us. The home is removed from major highways so very limited traffic noise. The adjacent boat launch is an added bonus in our opinion. We have met so many nice people and it can be very entertaining to watch.

Charming house, perfect location, completely stocked!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous weekend at the beach barn. The 3 bedrooms with their own bathrooms was perfect for our family. The beach access and fire pit and outside patio made it the perfect place to relax and unwind. The kitchen was totally stocked and everything was clean and tidy when we arrived. Would definitely stay here again :) The only bummer was the swarms of bees in the back driveway due to all the rotten apples falling off of the apple tree.

Love the Beach Barn

  • 5 of 5

This was a place I would stay in again. It was immaculate. It is furnished with everything a person would need. We loved sitting on the deck in the morning/evening. It was very peaceful and quiet. I would highly recommend this rental.

The Beach Barn provides a beautiful and relaxing getaway! The Case iInlet view was awesome.

  • 5 of 5

Our group had visited previously in the spring and loved coming back for summer. We brought our kayaks and saw a mother seal and her 3 pups while on the water. We loved our afternoon and evening swims and floats.Delicious clams and oysters and mussels were our dinner for 2 of the nights. We limited within minutes on the beach right in front of the property. We saw deer each night, especially on Treasure Island . I am a walker and the round trip to Treasure Island and back is only 45 minutes! The house is stocked with everything you need for cooking and comfort. The decor is amazing and HGTV worthy. Going back next summer for a week! We highly recommend this property.

Fabulous place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The Beach Barn was a lovely accommodation. There were six of us. Four adults and two children. We all spent time in the water. Weather was beautiful and the house was very well equipped. Each of the three bedrooms had their own bathrooms. I would highly recommend renting this property for a relaxing time.

Wonderful Beach Barn Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the Beach Barn rental in Allyn, WA. We were out in Washington to visit our daughter and son-in-law who live in Bremerton, WA. We had five adults who stayed at the property and the accommodations were perfect for the size of our party. The house is one of the nicest VRBO properties we have stayed in. The house is beautifully decorated, clean and had all of the comforts of home. The setting provides beautiful views of a boat landing which provided us with great entertainment watching boats coming and going throughout the day. One addition to the property that would be nice would be having a couple of kayaks for renters to use. We are from the midwest and had no way to bring any type of boat to the property. Even though we didn't have those to use we would highly recommend this property to anyone!!

Every Detail Covered!

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely lovely property! Every detail was covered, and nothing was missing or out of place. The decor was amazing, the furniture very comfortable, the bedding and towels were of high quality, and the views were incredible. Diane and Mark certainly have a gift for hospitality, and anticipating their guests' needs. We will definitely be returning again, and again, and wish Diane and Mark all the best with this new, lovely property!
