Overview

About the property

Beach house, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6, just a few steps from the beach

You'll love our beach house on Harstine Island's southern tip. Take in stunning views of the Olympic Mountains, Squaxin Island and Peale Passage from the huge deck and the rock, gravel and sand beach. Wander and explore the expansive tidelands. Comb the endless beach for sand dollars, sea shells, driftwood and other treasures while enjoying the solitude of one of Puget Sound's undiscovered gems. Bring your boat or use ours. Larger boats can be moored on our buoy. Swim, fish and crab in the clean waters of Puget Sound.

Most of the beaches on Harstine Island are privately owned, including all of the beaches you can access by walking from the house. All of the owners allow people to walk along their beaches, but gathering shellfish (clams, oysters and geoduck) by our guests is prohibited on these private beaches. Property owners are very concerned about people taking shellfish from their beaches, so I ask that you please respect their property.

The beach in front of my property has been over-harvested of its shellfish, so to allow nature to recover we are asking guests to only gather shellfish on the public beaches on the island. There is more information below on the public beaches and in the guidebooks at the house.

My bulkhead, made of large concrete blocks, is 100 feet long, and covers the width of my property. My beach goes all the way out to the lowest low tide point. You are free to walk on any part of my beach and neighboring beaches, north or south, but please DO NOT gather shellfish from the beach directly in front of the house or from neighboring beaches.

If you are planning to gather shellfish, you can drive to several public beaches on the island. One is Harstine Island State Park, which requires a short hike to the beach (DNR-24 beach) and is open to the public for clams and oysters all year. You can walk south on this beach for about a mile and you'll reach McMicken Island State Park, where there is also great shell fishing. Plan to be there at low tide for the best shell fishing. Here is the web address for more information about these beaches:

2nd time & we love it just as much as the 1st time

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 & our two dogs had a week of quiet adventures. We lacked nothing and gained togetherness and relaxation. If you are an introvert needing downtime, this is the cabin for you. Love, love, love this cabin! We will be back!!!

Cozy paradise on the water!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Steve's place so much we booked another stay later this year before we even left! We enjoyed the quiet setting, the proximity to the water, watching the tides and the sunset, and the thoughtful amenities that Steve provides! The house was clean and the instructions for arrival/check-in/check-out and information about the property were super clear! Thanks for making our stay so wonderful, Steve! We can't wait to come back. :)

Beautiful location, very quiet, well stocked cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this location. Great views of the water and the Olympic mountains as a backdrop. We saw two bald eagles, a blue heron, sand dollars and fish jumping. The place has everything you need to be comfortable. Binoculars, headlamps, flashlights, grill, fireplace, fire pit with wood and kindling, you name it they had it. Steve was very accommodating and responsive. We will be back!

Perfect Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place, clean, quiet, comfortable beds, lots of towels, a view that cannot be beat! Being it was the middle of February, the weather was constantly changing. We had beautiful sun, but icy cold, followed by snow, then high winds. Watching the water was perfect, somehow we timed it to watch a sail boat race! Would definitely stay here again. Very nice nautical decorations, full deck and a well equipped kitchen. Thank you Steve for sharing your house with us.

Relaxing weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed Steve’s cabin over

Christmas 2017. It was the perfect weekend getaway. Well-stocked and had everything we needed. Looking forward to returning during the summer, so we can take advantage of all the island has to offer!
