Recent Hood Canal, Puget Sound property reviews

  • Excellent stay for young family on a budget!

    "We had a wonderful 4 day stay here. It was comfortable for two adults and three kids. Our kids loved having the water out the back door and watching the tides go in and out. We brought our kayak and were in the water every chance we got. We loved having a fire in the fire pit a couple of different nights and watching the shooting stars. Clams and oysters were readily available and the rocky beaches provided endless rock skipping fun. It is a bit of a drive from the nearest restaurants and shopping but we brought all of our own food and the kitchen was well supplied to prepare all our meals. Only minor negative was the bottom step leading out to the water needs to be repaired. Overall one of the best vacations we have had with our young family."

  • I don't want to leave Hood Canal and the house!

    "Stumbled upon Hood Canal while researching on Olympic State Park. I'm so glad I found this "best kept secret in Seattle"!! Hood Canal is truly a wonderful place to spend time in the summer (maybe winter too, but I haven't try yet). The weather is pleasant, long daytime hours, water is slight cool initially but one can get acclimated to the temp easily. Sunset is gorgeous, surrounding is quiet that all you hear is your family's laughter, the bark of sea lions and seals and the gentle beats of waves. At night, I can see more stars than on a cruise ship and can easily spot shooting stars!! Now to the house. It is BEAUTIFUL. The pictures on the post is exactly what you'll see. Other than a few blemish due to previous renters (the period we were there, the upstairs french doors to the patio cannot be opened :(, and one of the kayak has a hole, wish we have a pair of kayaks to go out together. Other than that, house has everything you'll need. From gloves to s'mor to snorkel masks to water shoes, wine utensils to pancake flour to seasonings, you could really play from dawn to dusk and cook up a storm in the gourmet kitchen. The private beach in front of the house has sooooo many oysters that I was like a kid in candy-land, better not to have my cholesterol check in 2 years :) Didn't know we can dig for clams and go crabbing too...oh well, next time. In sum, I would give this house a 6 stars, if not of it's quite scary sewage alarm, which did go off a few times during our stay. Basically the house has a relatively small septic tank, you cannot take showers and run the dish washer/laundry at the same time. After the first time the alarm went off, which we wasn't even run at the same time, we were very cautious in terms of water use. I took the shortest shower, turn off the water when shampooing or soaping (which i normally don't at home). I think most people do appreciate a long, hot shower while on vacation. My husband and I did joke that it's a very smart way to conserve water :) So from my title, you knew that I don't want to leave. It's a great vacation place and home. Thank you. Hints for future renters: 1. Buy enough food before you arrive at the house. It's more than 20 mins from the nearest grocery to the house. If you have all the food you'll need, you practically can just stay at the house without the trouble of driving around. 2: house has strong Wifi, but no signal for T-mobile but strong for AT&T. 3:know how to clam and how to crabbing.Last,have fun!"

  • Wonderful time at Gladwin Beach House!

    "We were delighted with our stay at the Gladwin House. Lance met us there and made sure we had access to everything and knew how to work things. That was very helpful and it was really nice to meet the owner of this lovely home. We enjoyed using the kayaks, the jacuzzi was especially nice. What a wonderful view we had sitting on the deck in the jacuzzi! We were amazed by how many bald eagle we saw just while sitting on the front deck. When the tide is low the Eagles come and sit high in the trees and swoop down to the tidelands. What a treat! Everything about the house was perfect for our trip with our son and his wife. Ai Ling and Lance even made sure we had cable so we could watch the World Cup soccer matches while we were there. Thanks for everything, we hope to return!!"
