Close enough to use technology but far enough away that you won't want to


Bill Gates has four vacation homes on Hood Canal (Google it!) but it's still a well-kept secret just 90 min. from Seattle (2 hrs. from Portland). Few places in the world offer such natural diversity with the OCEAN & MOUNTAINS - both in one location.


"A weekend trip always feels much longer. Time slows and nature rejuvenates."


'Giggle Fish' is your Beach Cabin + Guest Boathouse located in Hoodsport, WA, on Hood Canal. It's so close to the water you can fish from the living room. This property is unique because it sits on a corner lot with a natural, unbuildable beach (200') between you and the neighbor. Privacy is hard to find here where homes normally sit side-by-side.


ACCOMODATIONS

* Relax in the modern comfort of this 2-story home on 100' of waterfront built in 1999

* BEACH CABIN - 2 Bed & 1 Bath (1,000 sq. ft.)

* The cozy Boathouse has a Queen LOG BED, private deck (right over the water) and 3/4 bath, plus flat screen TV.


The Cabin has 2 bedrooms upstairs both with KING Beds and flat screen TV's. The cozy Boathouse has a Queen LOG BED, private deck (right over the water) and 3/4 bath. Awake to breathtaking water views - and watch SEALS and BIRDS - all from the comfort of your warm, cozy bed. This fully fenced yard has a child safety gate to the beach. The Boathouse is great for teens or if one couple desires privacy. No garage, park along Hwy 101 like the locals.


INDOOR AMENITIES

Down comforters and luxury bedding in every room, plus a KING "SLEEP NUMBER BED" in Master and modern, whimsical beach decor throughout. The main level includes an open kitchen with eating bar and stools, dining nook with seating for 4 and sectional couch, full bath, 40" HD LCD Cable TV, Blue-Ray DVD player, games, Wi-Fi, toys, books, crib/Packn'Play, inflatable toddler bed.

Relax on the double chaise lounge with sweeping water views. Awesome fire pit (w/benches that fold into a picnic table) ~ Make s'mores with your kids ~ YUM!!!, Bluetooth-enabled CD stereo and outdoor rock speakers. Beach towels, chairs, cooler, buckets, shovels/rakes provided for your day playing on the beach. 2 one-man Kayaks provided. Participating guests must sign and return our liability release form before arrival. Kayaking is an amazing way to experience Hood Canal, but do so at your own risk.

              Location

              Hood Canal isn't realllllllly a canal, but a glacier-formed fjord which carved 60 miles along The Olympic Mountains. The mountains skyrocket 7,000 feet straight up from Hood Canal, creating a majestic, breathtaking backdrop. The clear waters provide world-class salmon fishing, crabbing, clamming and shrimping and miles of pristine shoreline for kayakers, divers, beachcombers, boaters and lovers of nature.

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About: Newly Listed with VR365 Property Management which is run by our good friend, Derek, who is a true PRO at Customer Service.

              Why Hoodsport:
              After 2 years of searching the PNW for a special beach town, we finally chose Hoodsport! A Hoodsport address was key because it's the only real 'town' with full amenities along the entire 60 mile stretch of Hood Canal (aside from Belfair at the far end). This home is just 2 minutes from the Hoodsport IGA Grocery Store which is extremely convenient (especially for wine and dessert at night!) We love the quick drive from Seattle & Portland -- literally two roads - I-5 to Hwy 101 -- and not being at the mercy of a ferry. The West side of Hood Canal is an 'Outdoor Lover's Paradise' with endless Ocean & Mountain activities. Hoodsport is a charming, waterfront town with Restaurants, Pub, Gift Shops, 2 Liquor Stores, Winery, Gas, Coffee Shop, Ice Cream Shop, Public Dock, Arts & Crafts, Dive Shop, Massage, Salmon Hatchery, Bank, Library, Outfitters Store (w/licensing), Olympic Park Visitor's Center, Kayak Rentals & Whiskey Distillery (opening soon).

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Giggle Fish is a 'One of a Kind' vacation property. The rare privacy makes it one of the best beach lots in Hoodsport. It's also one of the few with a lawn for kids and playing Bocce (provided). It's a perfectly-balanced getaway because you can adventure -- or RELAX and do nothing at all -- both while surrounded by the peace and serenity of nature. FOR HIKERS - just up the hill is the Olympic National Park 'Staircase' entrance and many popular day hikes surround the home (all levels). FOR SCUBA DIVERS - you can literally SEE world-famous 'Sund Rock' dive spot from the deck (See Photo) voted one of the world's top Wall Dives by 'Scuba Diving Magazine' and 'Octopus Hole' is just 1.5 miles North - both known for GIANT OCTOPUS & wolf eels 'So close to the water it feels like you're on the boat, but with all the comforts of home.'
