What makes this house unique

We're a unique waterfront property with our own (about 70 ft.) private beach that's use is exclusive for our guests. We have a couple of sit on top single Kayaks on hand that are free for our guests to use during their stay. In addition, we have life jackets and paddles.The beach access is from the property, and the bay is quite calm, so it's possible to Kayak year round.

Our location is excellent, we're just 17 miles West of downtown Seattle. One can take the local commuter ferry, (drive, or walk on) it runs typically on the hour from 4:30 am thru Midnight, and brings you to the heart of downtown Seattle in about 50 minutes.

It's also possible to drive directly to both SeaTac International airport, and downtown Seattle from the house.

The commuter ferry is considered a 'not to be missed' Seattle experience.

Article from Travel Magazine:

Title

The World's Most Scenic Ferry Rides

Washington State Ferry

Seattle's island-clogged Puget Sound makes ferry travel to and from Seattle a way of life. It’s no surprise that Washington State Ferry, part of the Washington State Department of Transportation, is the largest ferry fleet in the United States, and the third largest operator in the world, carrying more than 23 million passengers a year. For visitors, the breathtakingly gorgeous commute to the Kitsap Peninsula, where you can stroll the waterfront, dine in style, tour a vineyard, or rent a bike is a must.

The Kitsap Peninsula lies in the heart of Puget Sound, and is surrounded by over 300 miles of saltwater shoreline and located between the Olympic and Cascade Mountain ranges in Washington State. Kitsap offers miles of accessible shoreline, world-class golf courses, an eclectic collection of communities and endless recreational, cultural and scenic discoveries.

Many amenities, and attractions are within a few minutes of the house.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Stayed there for four nights with my kids ages 5 and 10. The place was absolutely beautiful. The decor was amazing, house was clean and all the amenities were great.

The place was very convenient with a big supermarket near by that so u can get groceries to cook in the kitchen with the amazing view. They had a easy path that walks down to the water that my kids can spend hours at the beach. It was close to a few very unique little towns.

Thank you for the wonderful place

The Perfect Seattle Area Family Getaway Home!

  • 5 of 5

The views at this home were incredible! I can not express how wonderful this rental is......but if I must, I would say it is perfection. Clean and comfortable, crisp linens, perfect for our family of 5. It lived up to all our expectations, and even more!

Quaint, needs some renovation, but great views and on the bay

  • 3 of 5

This 1937 home has beautiful hardwood floors and a great location on the bay. The kitchen had everything we needed, but was very tight for four adults; and the little kitchen table was almost too small for us. Luckily, we only used it for breakfasts. There are three bedrooms (2 Queens and 2 twins) and one full bathroom in the upstairs hallway for everyone to share. I should have paid closer attention to the bathroom arrangements, as the second shower is in the basement. I would have preferred to have an en suite master bedroom/bathroom arrangement. There is also another toilet on the main level. My husband and adult son are both over 6 feet and could not walk upright through the upstairs hallway to and from the bathroom, because of the slanted design in the low ceilings.

We visited during a cold snap (with snow!) so the heating system was constantly working. The radiators were loud and hissed, which occasionally woke us up at night. The house cleaner also asked us to drain the dirty/rusty water from the basement radiator system every other day and refill it, which I thought was odd. Something happened to the plumbing while we were there too, and water gushed from a basement wall and under the baseboards while someone was taking a shower. It was probably a burst pipe, due to the cold weather. The owner was out of town while we there, but luckily his house cleaner was able to contact him and let us make alternate hotel arrangements for the remainder of our stay. I imagine this home would be much nicer during the summer months. There was a kayak in the basement for guests, and a great deck overlooking the bay. It was just too cold outside for us to take advantage of them while we were there.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry again about the issue with the plumbing. You did receive an explanation as to cause of the problem which was a backup from outside of the house due to the cold weather, that caused just a small amount of water to come into the basement bathroom only, and not a burst pipe as you now speculate. Just to let you know, that issue was remedied the same day. The plumbing problem was on your last day of your 5 night stay, and as a result you were refunded for your last night, plus an additional refund for the inconvenience. Just to clarify the height of the upstairs ceilings, other then a curved pillar near the entrance of the bathroom upstairs, (as shown in one of the HomeAway/VRBO pictures) the ceilings are 8ft throughout the upper floor and are not 'low' as you mention. The house was built in 1937, It's a beautiful property that's well suited to accommodate up to 7 guests and has an overall 'Guest Satisfaction Rating' of 96 % as indicated by the previous 37, 5 Star reviews we received over the past 9 years. A few of the previous guests have even mentioned in their review that the house is their all time favorite VRBO/HomeAway rental. In addition to the refunds you've already received, I'm pleased to offer you an additional 10 percent discount off of your next stay.

Beautiful Home, goregous view

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home with a gorgeous view!!! I had a hard time deciding which was my favorite room, was it the livingroom with the spectacular fireplace and picture window overlooking the bay; or the beautiful eat-in kitchen with the table the was placed just in the perfect spot to sip coffee and look out at wildlife frolicking in the water; or maybe it was the unique octagon shaped entryway, or maybe... you'll have to decide for yourself. Rod was an excellent host. He met us at the house, showed us around and really made us feel welcome. He even sent us a note the next day to welcome us again and suggestions for restaurants in the local area. Can't wait to come back to Bremerton!!

Peaceful Perfection

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, wonderful house! Ample enough space for all of us (there were 7 adults) and such an inviting friendly set up. Attention to detail wasn't lacking in one area of the house. And the view!! Picturesque! I enjoyed my coffee in the morning from the back deck, and I was at complete peace. Its nice to get away from it all, and appreciate what nature has to offer. It was just a short little walk down to the beach, I was met by some seagulls, crabs, and plenty of seashells. The only thing that I would change about my stay was to stay longer, next time (I do plan on coming back) will be for a longer stay. I highly recommend this property. You will not be disappointed.

Beautiful home, picturesque view.

  • 5 of 5

Rod is a great host. We enjoyed our stay on Oyster Bay in this well-maintained home. I loved the architecture and design, and rest assured, it is comfortable. You'll feel like you're at a posh summer camp.

Location

Car: necessary

Our central location is excellent! We're just 17 miles West of downtown Seattle. One can take the local commuter ferry which is just 5 minutes from the house. It's free to walk on from the Kitsap side, (you can also drive on) and leaves typically once an hour from 5am thru midnight. A great way to reach downtown, the ferry with a cafe and WiFi on board, provides a relaxing, and authentic Seattle experience. The panoramic views from the ferry of downtown Seattle as you arrive are definitely not to be missed. You'll arrive in downtown Seattle at pier 52 in about 45-50 minutes and be within walking distance of most of Seattle's major attractions such as Pike place Market, Safeco Field, Century Link Field, Space Needle, Waterfront Park etc.

The ferry is just an option, if you want you can also drive directly to Seattle via Hwy I-5 in just under an hour.

It typically takes a day or two to see the downtown attractions. Thereafter, there are a number of interesting quaint historic town and attractions within a 15 to 30 minute drive of the house that are definitely worth a visit if you're spending more then a day or two in the Seattle area. They include Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium, Museum of Glass, Maritime Museum etc... Historic towns of Poulsbo, Port Gamble, and Port Townsend. Leavenworth, Whidbey Island, the National Parks of Mount Rainier, and Olympic National Park are are also just a day drive away from the house. Vancouver and Victoria, BC Canada are also possible day trips from the house
