2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom exquisite waterfront home ideal for romantic getaways!
New to the VRBO market! Stunning, newly-constructed, custom-designed waterfront home. The Bluff House was built for romance. One look and you'll understand. Charming architecture, warm, inviting spaces, exquisite finishes, and a private, intimate setting all whisper romance. Two bedrooms and two baths sleep four comfortably. The home offers expansive views of Puget Sound, Admiralty Inlet, the Cascade Mountains, Whidbey Island and the shipping lanes. Need more space? Rent The Bluff House and The Loft together, sleeping 8 in equal luxury. See VRBO 1188875.
At 1,300 square feet, the home lives large and connects seamlessly with the outdoors. There are 45!! windows that bring in light from every direction, warm wood and tiles floors and a generously-sized open kitchen. Every room offers a water view. The centerpiece of the home is a large, two-sided concrete Rumford fireplace that is easy to light and magical to watch. A large dining table seats 8. The quartz-topped bar offers 3 barstools where your guests can interact with the cook and take in the views.
The home sleeps 4 in two queen bedrooms with two baths. Both bedrooms have unobstructed water views.
Bedroom one occupies the entire upper floor of the home - and is partially open to the living room below to take full advantage of the soaring ceilings and light. There is a queen bed with a new pillow-top mattress and an elegant tiled bathroom is equipped with hotel-quality towels. The shower delivers an exceptional water view. From a set of glass doors you'll step out onto the balcony to bask in the moonlight, or watch the sunrise. We enjoy lying in bed and watching the marine traffic pass by - exquisite!
Bedroom two is on the main floor and is home to a queen bed with new memory foam mattress and cotton-rich linens. There is a full bathroom down the hall.
Need more space? Optionally add on The Loft, and exquisitely-finished 450 square foot space above the detached garage. The Loft offers another queen bed plus a twin trundle bed to accommodate an additional 4 people in a private, bright, water-view setting. Visit https://www.vrbo.com/1188875 to book the home and The Loft together.
We love to cook and to entertain and you'll find everything you need to prepare and serve memorable meals in our fully-equipped kitchen. There's a commercial gas range, dishwasher, European-style fridge - and all the cookware and serving ware you'll need. We even include a generous variety of spices and necessities like olive oil and tea. Just bring your fresh ingredients - all else is here for you to prepare gourmet creations for your family and friends. And did we mention the large propane BBQ on the deck - waiting for your steaks, ribs or portobellos?
With no homes on either side, the home offers the utmost privacy. Views of Puget Sound, the Cascade Mountains, Whidbey Island and Mount Baker greet you from every window. A sturdy set of newly constructed stairs delivers you to a fabulous soft sand and driftwood beach, ideal for beachcombers and afternoon picnics.
It's in the Details
We've furnished and equipped the home with your comfort in mind. Rich cotton sheets, down duvets, and fine pillows adorn the beds. Fluffy towels and warm tiled floors greet you in the baths. We keep the home stocked with amenities like shampoo and toothpaste, just in case you forget your favorites.
We know - you say you're ready to get away from it all. But, it's still nice to know you've got options if the boss calls. High-speed wireless internet connectivity throughout the home ensures you can get the information you want - should you decide you want it.
A generously-sized flat screen smart TV and DVD player will keep you entertained. A large selection of DVDs awaits your browsing as well. The home has Sonos WiFi speakers - which connect instantly to your phone or laptop. Download the Sonos app and you're good to go!
The Bluff House is alive with outdoor spaces. A covered deck, graced by a large outdoor fireplace, propane BBQ and ample seating invites you to enjoy the salt air. Upstairs, an intimate balcony is ideal for morning coffee or an evening nightcap. A viewing platform at the water's edge with a fire pit is ideal for star gazing and marshmallow toasting. With over 800 square feet of decking and an acre and a half of wooded grounds, you and your guests will find the perfect outdoor space - whether you seek company or solitude.
Hit the Beach
A sturdy set of newly-constructed beach steps take you down to a spectacular sandy beach. Walk for miles in both directions, or simply spread out a blanket and soak up the views. There are approximately 80 steps down - but we guarantee it's worth the walk!
Warm Heated Floors
Hate cold feet? Us too. The Bluff House is equipped with a propane-powered hydronic heating system that keeps every inch of the floor (even the shower floors!) warm and toasty. It's quiet, efficient and well, fabulous.
The Bluff House was designed as an escape for romance-seeking couples (and their inevitable kids, in-laws and besties). We built the home for ourselves, and the finishes reflect the high-end care and attention of someone building for the long term. The home is warm, inviting, calming and well, romantic. It's the perfect place to ground yourself and your romance before returning to the real world.
Other things to note
There are 80 secure steps down to the sandy beach. Guests may use the stairs but assume all risk in doing so and are urged to proceed carefully and use handrails. At the base of the stairs is a drop-down section controlled by a winch. Guests much be at least 18 years of age to operate the winch. No one may be on the drop down section during raising and lowering.

Why Dale and Tina Ingalls chose Hansville
We love the water - you'll always find us on it, near it - or in it! We also love high-quality, efficient spaces - and it is these factors that prompted us to build The Bluff House. When we're not enjoying the home ourselves, you'll find us sailing or pursuing other water-centric adventures. We're sure you'll fall in love with the home, just as we have.
What makes this House unique
The views from The Bluff House are simply exceptional - and you feel truly connected to the sea. We love lying in bed with a hot mug of coffee and watching the sun come up. We also love snuggling on the deck with a glass of wine in front of the outdoor fireplace. Beach walks are a favorite adventure too. Here, bald eagles are seen every day, along with deer, ravens, hawks, owls, seals and sea lions. The Bluff House is exceptionally private and has an inherently romantic feeling.

Amazing, relaxing holiday at this gorgeous beach house.
We spent 5 wonderful days at this house. My husband and I were searching for a relaxing, romantic getaway and this home checked all the boxes. The house is private, no other homes in sight and we never heard anything but spring song birds, occasional sea lions barking and the sound of the ocean. The gourmet kitchen had everything we needed to cook and the weather was so nice we were able to use the BBQ. I really loved sitting on the deck in the mornings with a cup of tea and watching the sailboats. Of course the walks on the beach were amazing and the nights by fireplace were great also. This house was ideally situated for day trips around the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas. We loved our time here and hope to come back someday.
Serene. The perfect place to unwind and create memories
We spent 4 absolutely wonderful days here over mid-winter break and enjoyed every minute. The home is beautiful, comfortable, warm and well supplied. The views are outstanding. Our favorite part was walking down to the beach; the pathway and stairs are well-lit for walks after sunset. In the mornings we watched bald eagles and hawks fly near the cliff and occasionally rest on a high branch of a tree on the property. This is the perfect place for those wanting to relax and enjoy the beauty of the NW while staying in a luxurious home. Tina was very kind and replied quickly to all inquiries. We hope to return some day!
We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Do come back and see us again!
Beautiful, Peaceful and Relaxing
My family spent 2 wonderful relaxing days together enjoying the views and time together before the hectic Holidays. The house was well appointed and the views were amazing. We took strolls on the beach and enjoyed the indoor and outdoor fireplaces. Thank you for a wonderful stay we hope to be back.
Ultra-secluded, scenic getaway.
We stayed for a weekend and loved it. The house stands by it self surrounded by trees with an unobstructed, high bank view of the water. Nicely appointed and very quiet, the house needs no blinds or drapes as you are completely separated from the neighboring properties.
The sandy beach was a nice walk and would be lovely in the summer months. I would add this to your must stay list.
So glad you enjoyed your stay at The Bluff House! Do come back and enjoy the home and beach in the summer months too!
