  • Magical respite

    "Staying at Island Magic offered us a home away from home! The three bedrooms with two bathrooms provided comfortable beds and privacy as we were three unrelated, retired friends The open floor plan in the living area gave us plenty of space for cooking, reading and dining. Being able to look at the forest from every window brings the beauty of Harstene Island inside! One morning a barred owl perched on the railing of the patio...wow...what a beautiful sight!! Everything one could need for a wonderful vacation is provided. If you are looking for a warm, beautiful home for a get-a-way, consider Island Magic. You will be delighted! We hope to return within the year!"

  • Totally Awesome Vacation Spot!!

    "Our family of three spent a three-day weekend at this Harstine Island retreat and had a supremely enjoyable stay. The cabin is cozy and warm, centered around a large wooden table for family activities. The kitchen may not be granite and shiny, but it is totally what you expect in a woodsy island cabin. Our 15-year old daughter took over the loft area as her own space. A huge wrap-around deck and easy chairs provide outdoor spaces as well as a large comfy hammock slung between trees. We took walks to the beach nearby, hiked along the bluffs, and enjoyed the sunny beach out on the point. The view across Puget Sound is beautiful and relaxing. Sandwiched in-between a very busy trip to the Northwest in which we hiked and climbed far up Mt. Baker, Mt. Rainier and Mt. Hood, to the point of exhaustion, the island was a welcome retreat in which we were able to lay back and do very little as we wanted. One drawback is that there is no wi-fi in the cabin, however this was really an inconvenience as we simply timed our internet usage to our visits to the community center where the signal is strong. At the central building there is a large and inviting pool, (the photos at this site do not really do it justice, or the island or the cabin for that matter, and should be updated) large enough to swim laps in. The large and hot jacuzzi was also well used to soak our weary bones. This is a quiet spot, so if you are looking for a hub of activity or have a lot of restless teenagers who need to be tethered to their devices you might seek out a place closer to civilization, but I totally recommend it as a getaway when what you want to do is recuperate from our all-too-busy lives."

  • Perfect vacation spot for entire family

    "My family includes 8 people ages 2 to 72. We have rented this home in November for Thanksgiving, for a spring wedding in the meadow in front of the house and numerous times in the summer. This beautiful home has everything one needs for an enjoyable vacation. We have always found it spotless and the beds made for our arrival. Access to the pool, the beaches, the hiking trails, the spectacular views and the quiet are why we keep coming back. The owners have been consistently wonderful."

  • Amazing getaway!

    "My family spent the weekend at this amazing cabin and had such a wonderful time! When we arrived there were amazing cookies waiting for us with a hand written note, something you do not get at most places. The gorgeous view of the water and access to the beach were an added bonus that my family loved! We had a great time walking along the water and relaxing we even saw some bald eagels! I can say this is a place for people of all ages!"
