Come and visit Case Inlet, the most pristine waterway of South Puget Sound, and find our cozy waterfront cottage waiting to embrace you. The house is 1760 square feet, with four bedrooms and two baths. Oak floors and trim, beautiful rugs and photographs, tiled counter tops and a slate fireplace surround are some of the details that make the cottage an inviting place to spend your vacation. Relax in the hot tub and take in the beautiful view. There is a canoe as well as 4-kayaks, with PFDs and paddles, available for you to get out on the water. Wifi is available throughout the house.
Whimsical tropical fish, trellises and a view of the bay through an arched gate greet you upon entering the fenced property. The kitchen, dining room and living room are all open to the water view. A three level deck adds to the living space. The hot tub provides an outstanding view of Case Inlet. After a soak you can spend time on the comfortable chaise lounges or have lunch under the wisteria. Serve your guests at the outdoor bar. The beach is just twenty steps from the deck across the landscaped yard. Enjoy the fire pit and Adirondack chairs at waters edge.
Low tide reveals an immense beach for exploring, shell collecting and digging a few clams. The bay is great for water sports. It is warm enough in the summer, by Northwest standards, for a quick dip. Bring your power boat, kayaks, windsurfers, and fishing gear. More kayaks and paddle board rentals are available just down the beach. Three salmon runs bring fish right in front of the house in the fall. Watching the salmon jump and splash is an amazing site!
The kitchen is well stocked to meet your food preparation needs. The large island has four chairs for casual dining. A long counter top next to the dining room is perfect for a buffet setup. The dining room table can seat eight or more people and a second table can be set up for additional guests. The comfortable upholstered chairs, stained glass chandelier and the view provide a memorable setting for meals.
The living room has a wide-screen HDTV and DVD with surround sound. An upstairs bedroom has a TV with DVD/VCR, books, games, videos, a queen bed & full bed. Kids can claim this room while the adults are downstairs.
The Case Inlet view from the master bedroom on the second floor is exquisite. Curling up in the comfortable queen bed or on the love seat in this room, with a warm drink and a book will define the word 'vacation'! The third upstairs bedroom has a queen bed. The upstairs has some areas of low headroom. One bedroom with a queen bed is located on the main floor.
The house is located in the center of this small town and everything you might need is within a few minutes walk of your door. You can stroll down the beach to a waterfront restaurant and sports bar, and just a bit further to the Allyn Waterfront Park, play ground, pier and dock (moorage available). Buy an espresso, a meal or groceries and return to your private retreat.
Explorations by water from Allyn include Fair Harbor Marina, Stretch, and Treasure Islands, Pickering Passage, Olympia, and points beyond. The book South Puget Sound Afoot and Afloat is a great guide to the area. The 27-hole Lakeland Village Golf Course is minutes away. Other great courses including Trophy Lakes and Gold Mountain are within a thirty minute drive. The area is known for it's ATV trails, nearby lakes, and access to the Olympic Peninsula, Olympic National Park, and Hood Canal. Spectacular hiking trails in the Olympics are just an hour away. The cities of Belfair, Shelton, Gig Harbor and Bremerton are nearby for additional shopping and dining opportunities. Belfair has a large waterfront nature preserve with walking trails. You can drive to Seattle (90 minutes) via Tacoma or take a 20-mile drive to Bremerton and a spectacular, 55-minute ride on the Washington State Ferry System directly to downtown Seattle.

Why Dave Curran chose Victor
I love South Puget Sound, the Allyn community where I have made dear friends, and the small town setting for my vacation rental. Case Inlet is gorgeous. In the summer the water warms up due to the shallow bay. There are three salmon runs in the Fall. Having a home on a beach was a dream come true. I love to come work on the house and enjoy the bay. The water view from our hot tub and home is exquisite!
What makes this House unique
Two nearby wedding venues are the Allyn Waterfront Park Gazebo (.5 miles) and Fair Harbor (10-minutes). The location is halfway between Seattle and the Olympic National Park. Tacoma and Olympia are within an hour. Mt. Rainier National Park is a two hour drive. Many quality golf courses are within a half hours drive.

We really enjoyed staying in your home. It's comfortable and lovely. I loved being on the water and having the hot tub as well. Thanks!
Perfect for our girl’s weekend.
The house was well stocked with everything we needed!
This house was wonderful for our group of ladies! Plenty of space for everyone. The house has great character. Had a great time walking the beach, relaxing in the hot tub and playing games at the large table. We had great communication with the owner and house keeper. Also all the people in town we talked to were amazing. Would definitely come back again! Thank you for a great weekend away!
A great spot for families!
We went with a total of ten people--three couples and four kids. The space was a perfect size for our group! The house really is quite literally on the beach--couldn't keep the kids out of the freezing water, even in March. The hot tub was a wonderful additional to the chilliness; we all enjoyed it alot. The owner was very responsive in answering questions before we arrived, which made it much easier to plan.
As far as the house goes--it's certainly not a lap of luxury, but it gets the job done. The dining table is a great size for big groups, and the kitchen is well stocked for cooking. I would recommend a new vegetable peeler and can opener, as well as a refurbishment of salt and pepper. Also, a sharpening of the knives--most are quite dull.
The home could use a deep cleaning; the carpeted stairs are pretty dirty, it smelled a bit of wet dog, and many corners of hard floors were darkened by lots of good use. That being said, I'm almost glad it wasn't too bright and shiny--it allowed us to let the kids loose without too much fear of ruining something. Which, in my opinion, actually isn't too bad, because it allows families to really enjoy their time. And for the price and location, it can't be beat! We'd definitely come back!
Thank you for your comments/suggestions. We are pleased that you had a great time and enjoyed the house, hot tub and beach!
We will check out the kitchen items and replace this week. There should be a knife sharpener in the utensil drawer for guest use. We will give them a sharpen too.
Carpet, beaches and dogs can be an issue.
We plan to replace the carpet on the stairs this coming week. We will also put a towel and sign on the deck asking folks to dry and clean off their dog's feet.
Thanks for visiting the Allyn house!
Lovely home, location and amenities!
Spent my 50th birthday at the Allyn Beach House and truly loved it! It was perfect for a gathering of families! The view from the home and hot tub is spectacular, we were able to have one family in an RV in the driveway, and the home had all the amenities we needed to cook, eat and play. We even took a paddle in the canoe! Thanks for an amazing time at your fun and well equipped beach home!
Great getaway close to Seattle!
Spent a great weekend at the house wandering the beach, playing dice with friends, and gathering around the fire pit overlooking the water.
