"Wow! I stepped into the house (No! This was a warm, monumental HOME!) and immediately I see a huge ship passing before me down the straits heading for the Pacific Ocean. What a view. I sit on the cozy padded couch, turn on the fireplace, continue to gaze at the everchanging panorama : eagles, sea gulls in the air and killer whales in the water drifting by along with various ships...and no people. It is so pleasant and relaxing that I doze. Yes, it was that relaxing to me and my wife. I awoke, galvanized by this home, made cocktails, sipped and cooked a sumpuous dinner (the kitchen is fully decked out with utensils, dishes, lighting, with music in the background. We crept back to a very comfortable, spacious bedroom and slept the night away and woke early to one of the most gorgeous sun rises I have ever seen...Hawaii, eat your heart out. We enjoyed the surrounding grounds as we did leisurely walks, swam in the area indoor pool, reveled in drives around the area: Port Townsend with great stores and restaurants, Port Gamble, got a quick nine holes of golf...but really looked forward to getting back to our home away from home so that we could relax, read, doze, ogle the skyline and ever present view, cook, read, view, sleep, eat..............plain old RELAX! I plan on returning to this outstanding retreat. Thank you so much for such a wonderful place and location and all the amenities that you have to offer.
