About Marjorie and Mark Bellesiles

We love this location. We do all the things we advertise: Kayaking, biking, eating Crepes, drinking expresso, hiking, but mostly we love exploring this wonderful area. Port Gamble, Port Townsend, Point No Point Lighthouse at Hansville, Hurricane Ridge, the gardens at Heronswood and Bloedel, Hurricane Ridge, to name a few. Whale watching tours are offered summertime sadness across the water in Edmonds and in Port Townsend.

We are a couple with a couple of grown kids, on their own, and 1 aging dog, who loves greeting guests. We live in the upstairs apartment, but you will hardly know it as both are very private.

Marjorie and Mark Bellesiles purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Marjorie and Mark Bellesiles chose Kingston

This location is unique because it's easy to just hang out and relax, but is close to so many reccreational destinations. Edmonds is an easy walk on a 30 minute ride to access dozens of restaurants, galleries, walking paths. Besides the kayaking and long walks available, right out your door, there's great bird watching and fishing. In the summertime, there is a Saturday market at the marina and live music in the evenings.

What makes this apartment unique

This location is a five minute walk to the ferry and marina. This make it such a unique location. It's close to everything, but when you are sitting by the water, you feel a world away.

Super well equipped property, great hosts, and the best Puget Sound view imaginable. Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

From a practical point, the property had everything I needed and more. All the little extras a traveler needs, especially in the kitchen and bathroom, were provided. I especially appreciated the keyless entry, which meant not having to worry about losing a key. Marjorie and Mark were the perfect hosts - easy to communicate with, friendly, and welcoming. The proximity of the property to the water (few steps) and town of Kingston (3-4 minute walk) are unbeatable. To wake up each morning and be able to enjoy the best view ever without even getting out of bed was priceless. As much as I enjoyed visiting all the nearby sights, my greatest joy was to watch the ever changing view right in front of my home away from home, a true Northwest paradise. I'll certainly be back!

A very lovely spot.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the view from the big windows and the patio of Appletree Cove: the tides, the birds and the boats- and sometimes Mt Rainier. We took walks every morning around Kingston, which is charming, and we explored the beaches, forests and towns of the Peninsula. That kept us busy for a month and we would love to go back. Mark and Marjorie were gracious hosts and provided all the comforts we needed (even kayaks to go out on the cove.) It was a short walk to the ferry and easy access to Seattle. This was one of our favorite spots on our summer trip exploring the West Coast.

Very comfortable property with wonderful hosts Mark and Marjorie.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortably sleeps 2 adults in very nice accommodations. Mark and Marjorie gave us just the right attention. Very friendly and helpful, from where to shop to ferry schedules and travel advice. You can not beat the view from the 4 picture window beach side property. Eagles, Osprey, Heron, Kingfisher, and Pipers are a daily occurrence. We weren't able to kayak as Mark & Marjorie offered, but next time it's a must! Mark and Marjorie made a special effort to provide a wonderful visit for our granddaughter as well, by providing additional bedding and some much appreciated reading advice for her! Thank you! Ed

Great spot for a sunny day.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a couple of days at the end of October. Was a delightful place when the sun shone, right on the water in a small bay. Owners offered Kayaks to renters. Next day was rainy all day and the pretty outside was of little value. This place is within walking distance to the ferry from Edmunds, which was convenient.
