Waterfront Home on Hood Canal w/ Gorgeous View, Private Beach, Washer/Dryer

With a gorgeous waterfront setting on the shores of Hood Canal, this two-bedroom home offers all the inviting ambience of a plush Pacific Northwest lodge. You'll find beautiful craftsman features throughout, including vaulted ceilings with exposed natural beams, an impressive stone hearth (but please note that the fireplace is not for guest use), richly hued wood cabinetry, and large picture windows that bring in a commanding view of the water. When the weather's fine, you can bring a mug of coffee out to the deck and watch for passing otters in the morning, or follow the staircase down to the water's edge to get an even closer view on the pebble beach. Go for a bracing swim in the cool water, toss your wet swimsuit in the private washer/dryer, and get the gas grill going for a barbecue lunch at the picnic table on the sheltered patio.

In the evenings, you can choose a DVD from the collection to watch on the flatscreen TV and find some extra relaxation in the jetted bathtub. You'll have two bedrooms to choose from - a waterfront room with a queen-size bed and balcony access, and a guest room with two double beds with an en suite bathroom with a jetted tub/shower combination. The second full bathroom with a shower is in the hallway.

What's nearby:
This beachfront home is set back from Highway 101 right on the western shores of Hood Canal. You'll be a few doors down from the Eldon Store, a charming grocery store and deli, and less than a mile from Hama Hama Oyster Saloon if you're looking to sample the local specialty. Olympic National Forest is practically at your doorstep, with Lake Cushman only 20 miles inland.

This home is amazing. Beautifully decorated, comfortable kitchen, luxurious bathrooms, amazing view!
The front door lockbox wasn't working when we arrived but I called the number included with the entry instructions and a very gracious Vacasa employee quickly got us in using side door key box. They offered to send someone right out to fix it but we opted for using the side door during our stay.
The main bedroom has upgraded to a king size bed, which is lovely, but it was a little too hard for my old bones. A foam topper would be a nice addition.
The stairs to the beach are truly steep and not in great shape. We braved them anyway but there wasn't much beach to explore so unless you have a real reason to go down you might just enjoy the view from up top.
I loved the decor and we had fun guessing at the age of the house by some of the original appliances. However, even though the color of the couches goes perfectly with the style (orange and turquoise) the one we used the most in front of the window was far from comfortable. Luckily there are several baskets of blankets and pillows around so we were able to doctor it up. Granted, we were there to delve into our music and tend to perch on the edge of a couch to play guitar. Sitting back wasn't as bad.
Others have commented on the highway noise but we were amazed how little we heard being so close to it. Perhaps it would be worse during the summer with windows open and heavier traffic.
I never did figure out the shower! It's BIG! I did get the most important shower head working and hot but there is a plethora of heads and the only knob that was likely to control them did nothing and fell off in my hand. Also, beware, when we used the shower at the same time as filling the bath we ran out of hot water. Timing is everything!
All in all, a great place and highly recommended!
Manager response:
Hi, Donna! Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for providing your feedback. We have asked the homeowner to provide explicit instructions for the shower system so guests can fully utilize it. We hope you'll return someday!

Great views, comfortable home, having a vantage of at least 100ft elevation. Unfortunately that is also a challenge to go down to the beach. A flight of nearly 100 stairs, very steep, makes a descent and an ascent a daunting process (although our kids were up and down a couple of times a day). This house is good for someone who likes to be indoor, relaxing and disconnecting from the rest of the world. There is no wifi (we overlooked when booking this house and just realized this a few days before we left). We couldn't do couple of things online, and our friend's husband didn't join us because he needed to do a few things that required internet connections. And there were times the end of the days, our four kids were tired, getting cranky, and arguing (throwing pillows at each other). One of those times, (we think) wifi connection/cable tv and some screen time would not be a bad thing.
Manager response:

Comfortable and as advertised which is much more than I can say for the place we stayed at after this one.

View is gorgeous, and very roomy space. Only things to consider if it’s important to you is residence doesn’t have wifi or air conditioning.

We loved the place. Beautiful location and fun home. Just be warned there's no wifi!

Overall had a great stay and would go back again!
Manager response:

Everything about this house is great. The location. The views. The super well stocked kitchen. The floor plan. Enjoyed every bit of our week long stay here...
Biggest attraction of the area - the hood canal oysters! You can get a WA shellfish license ($17 for the year) and hunt oysters at the nearby Eagle creek (6 minutes drive from the house). The kitchen even had the shucking knives for you to use!
One minor thing - the garbage can was full to the brim when we got here - so for the first three days we couldn’t take out our garbage outside until we put out the garbage can outside on Tuesday (which is garbage day here), this didn’t feel good since we had to keep three days off stinky garbage in the house.
The other thing is that the house doesn’t have any WiFi- we came here knowing that already so wasn’t a problem for us.
In summary, had a lovely time and hope to be back again. Someday.
