Secluded Beachside Home on Harstine Island

Space 1,100 sq. ft.

Minimum Stay 2 nights

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:

Relaxing weekend away!

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!

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family spent a wonderful week here. The cabin was clean, lots of helpful landlord notes/guides around and very well stocked with all you need. Good internet to boot! Wonderful location for views and enjoying what the tide changes bring. Taking a kayak trip was very relaxing and nice to have those on-site.

We traveled to various national parks and bare in mind the remoteness of this location will add to your time to get to any place but well worth it. We had this side of the shore to ourselves (Sept during the week) and really added to our enjoyment.

We have stayed in a lot of VRBO places over the years and we can say this is one of those gems!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a magical place. The home is beautiful, equipped with everything you need. You can tell it was created with love. We had a great time on the beach and especially LOVED access to all the different water toys like kayaks and canoes. The island is beautiful and secluded, just what we wanted. I can't wait to come again for an anniversary!
