Hat Island (AKA Gedney Island) house description

Keywords: LUXURY OCEAN FRONT HOME ON PRIVATE ISLAND (PUGET SOUND)

Located on Hat (Gedney) Island, 5 miles from Everett (Port Garder), approximately 30 minutes North of Seattle, this no-bank waterfront house has breathtaking 180' views of Whidbey Island, Camano Island, Puget Sound and Olympic mountains. This is a private island community with a marina, rated nine-hole golf course and a tennis court. Private foot ferry access (note there is no ferry service on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays), no pavement, and a lack of commercial activity on the island make for an incredibly peaceful get-away from the hustle and bustle.

This vacation house consists of two wings connected by a huge Tigerwood deck and awnings. Construction was completed in 2009. The two-story bedroom wing has four bedrooms, two with private balconies and the others also open directly onto the deck. ALL bedrooms have ocean views. Three bedrooms have queen beds, and one has bunkbeds. The glass enclosed kitchen/dining/living area has large sliding doors, providing great views whether open or closed.

The house is fully equipped for your comfort and convenience. Amenities include a wood-burning stove/fireplace, stereo with CD player, TV for DVD player, games, puzzles, books, and kites. Fully appointed gourmet kitchen of bamboo cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless appliances also looks out over the ocean. Laundry facilities. Duvet covered down comforters for all seasons and top quality mattresses. Great cell coverage. Internet not provided; we recommend a cell modem if you need to connect while on vacation.

There are many things to do such as kayaking, walking, swimming, crabbing, clamming, scuba diving, golfing, beach combing, small boating, berry picking or just relaxing with a good book and enjoying the eagles and sunsets.

This peaceful natural setting is a great place for a half week or full week long vacation for all seasons. Minimum rental June 15 to September 15 is 4 nights (some leeway if availability allows), otherwise there is a strict two night minimum. No rentals Dec-Feb as property is winterized.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: Professional couple with three teens. We live and work in Seattle, and stay at our second home on Hat Island as many weekends as possible, since its just 1/2 hour north of Seattle. Our boys love to explore the wetlands and use the kayaks and bring friends. We love to catch and eat Dungeness crab, pick then bake blackberry crisp, and entertain friends out on the beach.

              Why the Owner Chose Hat Island (AKA Gedney Island):
              Hat Island is a breathtakingly beautiful secluded island not far from our Seattle city home. With the help of a fabulous local architect and talented designer, we built this custom home between 2006 and 2009 with the goal of creating a quiet, relaxing, fun, family vacation spot. We put a priority on amenities for great sleeping and great cooking and relaxing while reading or enjoying the spectacular panoramic water view. All the bedrooms have a great view; two have private balconies.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We see lots of wildlife: whales passing through in the springtime, eagles, seals, birds, and rabbits. Hiking around the island is a great way to get in a 4.5 mile walk at low tide and see all the real estate and local geology. Crabbing, clamming and berry picking (in season; with licenses) are available outside your door. Four free recreational kayaks are available for use, Thre stand-yup paddle-boards, and free use of island vehicle. There are some rules due to the nature of a private island HOA and the geography. For example, the Home Owner's Association has rules about fires and water consumption, and we ask guests not to disturb the neighbors or drive on the grass. Some rules help us leave the house in pleasing shape for the next guests - like cleaning the grill and putting away dishes the last day - things that are required in most resort/house rentals. And we try to keep the cleaning fee low by having guests make beds and put borrowed items away on the last day. We have an on-island host to help out, and we use the same checklist for ourselves that we give to guests!
