Come by boat or car and enjoy on the water living like you’ve never imagined. Perfect accommodations for family reunions, corporate retreats, or a family vacation (20 person max).
Extensive use of stone, tile and natural materials give the house a lodge feel that is cozy and warm but with enough room for everyone in a large group to sprawl out and have their own space. The outside boasts many patios and decks including 2 massive gas fire pits, a relaxing sauna, flagstone sunning level and large grass lawn for playing Bocce ball, crochet and a host of other games. A 170’ dock capable of multiple boats being tied up allows for deep water moorage, 10-14” deep at low tide. We provide kayaks. Concrete steps lead down to the rocky beach for low tide searches of crabs, starfish and whatever the bay has to offer.
Bring your own ski boat, Oyster Bay is known for its calm waters and is a favorite of most skiers/wake boarders on the peninsula. 4 boat ramps are a short distance away. Bring your own cruiser and make jaunts to many of the local towns, downtown Seattle for dinner, the San Juan’s or even Victoria BC.

Entering the main floor through the large wooden medieval front door, you’ll be struck by the view out past the dining room, opening up onto Oyster Bay. Virtually all of the rooms have water views and are situated to take the full advantage of being so close to the water. The interior spaces are large and furnished with high quality, new pieces that accent the tile and espresso hard wood floors. The entry boasts its own powder room for convenience.

About the owner: Doug and Tricia, local business owners and boating enthusiasts, are enjoying retirement in Maui.
Lifelong boaters on the waters of Puget Sound and the San Juan islands, we picked Oyster Bay to raise our children because of its stunning beauty, protected year round waters and close proximity to downtown Seattle.
Why the Owner Chose Bremerton: Oyster Bay is one of those special places where kids can take a row boat to treasure island, fish off the dock, kayak, swim to the dive platform or just beachcomb. A regular favorite of ours was to wakeboard every night.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate: Oyster Bay is known for its calm waters and was even home to the primers ski club in the area.This home is a water enthusiasts paradise and makes access to to the rest of the Puget Sound a breeze. Local restaurants and bars with dock access from Silverdale, Manette, Bremerton, Port Orchard and Poulsbo, 45 min trip to Seattle and only 2-3 hours away from the San Juan Islands, Victoria and the Gulf islands.
Any of our guests at the oyster bay estate are welcome to join us on the snorkel boat we operate in Kihei, Maui. Maui Snorkel Charters. Any stay earns 2 passes and a week or more gets 4 tickets if used in the next year.
