About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bath Loft House With Beautiful Panoramic Views. Sleeps 8


This Hood Canal Property has been in our family for over 60 years. Our father grew up enjoying the warm water, shellfish, and sun bathing. As children ourselves, we spent many summers in this property enjoying the very same thing. This place is so magical we decided it is time we share with all of you. The North Shore of the Hood Canal hosts some of the warmest waters in the Pacific Northwest. Last summer when we were there the water temperature hit 80 Degrees! Also if you like shellfish, especially oysters, then this house will be the perfect experience for you. Whether you need some time away from the everyday rush or you're looking for an outdoor adventure, you will find what you are looking for at The Beach House on Hood Canal.

~ Kitchen ~

Newly remodeled kitchen providing basic housewares in order to cook your family/group that scrumptious meal. Dining ware for 8 people.

~ Bedrooms ~

Downstairs bedroom is suited for two people with a king bed.

The upstairs is broken into to two loft-like rooms-- think large, separated, open area without enclosing doors-- one is furnished with a queen bed and full-sized futon. The last bedroom has one queen bed and is open loft style.

The upstairs loft looks into the living room and has panoramic views of the canal. Pictures do not do this view justice, however there is one trying to capture the beauty of the view in our picture selection.

~ Living Room ~

Our panoramic view leads to the deck and kitchen/dining as well. We have a 42" TV on top of our decorative fireplace for you to enjoy some television when the time comes.

~ Outdoors ~

We provide you with two grills, one strictly for oysters, and seating area to lounge on the wrap around deck. Please keep seafood outside and try to cook it outside, as much as possible. Always shuck oysters outside. Also, there's an outdoor shower to rinse the saltwater off. 2 beginners’ kayaks are provided with life jackets— 4 adjustable adult sizes and 2 youth. (Patio furniture is seasonal.)

~ Beach ~

Our house sits on top of the water for parts of the day- literally, it's on stilts! You're welcome to do as you please on our rocky beach. We kindly ask that you refrain from lighting fireworks off and having beach fires near, or underneath, the house. Feel free to collect oysters and other shellfish from our property-- no fishing license required.

~ Boating ~

Our house is a 10-minute drive from a boat ramp in either direction. Bring your boat and anchor in front of our place (be aware of the ever-changing tide) for easy access to water-skiing, fishing, and shrimping/crabbing. Kayaks, canoes, and stand up paddle boards are also perfect for this water, year round.

About Sean Finucan

There are 5 owners which consists of 3 siblings and spouses. We are Pacific Northwest natives who grew up just 40 minutes from this house in Bremerton Washington. We love to play outdoors and be a regular family who works hard and plays harder. We have various professions in the group, including a doctor, real estate agent, Nike Golf operations, diagnostic imaging, and a photo shoot producer. We enjoyed this place so much we just had to share it.

Why Sean Finucan chose World

This house was our grandparents and designed by our father. We just love the times we've spent out on the canal please take a look at some of those great times we have already had on our Instagram below!

What makes this house unique

-Sits on stilts in the water, when the tide is in you get to feel and embrace the water all around you. When the tide is out you get a lot of beach to play on.

-The water is uniquely WARM. This house sits towards the end of the hood canal where the water is clear and warm! In the summer months the water has been in the 80"s and is very commonly in the 70's. once you are done swimming you can enjoy a nice outdoor shower to rinse off. Many of the other homes on the water that are no in this area will not be this warm and probably be closer to the mid to high 50's. Most pacific northwest water including just a few miles up the hood canal is just for show and not for play because of the cold water!

Beautiful solitude

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time here! Our kids kayaked and there were seals playing peek-a-boo with them. We watched the sun rise and set. The house is beautiful and such a peaceful place to relax after a busy day hiking. The ocean beach is about 2 hours but it's a beautiful drive. Olympic National Park is also close and also amazing. We found so much peace here just watching the water and seeing the stars come out. We definitely hope to be back!

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a family reunion in the area. It was perfect place to relax. There were three of us and the downstairs bedroom was good for our older mother. The view from the deck was beautiful. The beach was filled with oysters and the swim dock was filled with seals in the morning. A real treat.

Glad we came back for round 2

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought some friends this time around to celebrate my birthday. What a great birthday treat! We loved the fully stocked kitchen and board game closet. The master bedroom has a very comfortable king mattress. And everything was stocked for our use. Glad we could stay longer than a weekend this time, it was a blast.

We had the best time. We loved waking up and going to bed to the sound of the waves every day. Everything you needed was right there. The towels were many!! That was a nice convenience. All the beds were AWESOME! So comfortable. The kids loved the loft area..and seeing the beautiful view. You had everything you needed in the kitchen. The Kayaks were a great bonus! This house is very peaceful and relaxing. Overall we had a great experience and will definitely be back again.
