My husband and I grew up in Seattle and have raised our kids here. We love the Puget Sound and finally bought into the dream. We would love to share a little slice of that with you.

The PNW’s version of an Oasis...
I can’t begin to describe just how much this place and our visit (first visit to the area) exceeded our expectations.
From the point of reservation, connecting with the owner, pre-checkin notes through to boarding our flight home this experience has been fantastic.
The home is perfectly situated on an amazing water front space. As you descend the road/driveway to the house by the water it is as if you’re being taken away from the high speed work a day life to a tranquil oasis.
The home is well organized with lots of quiet spaces for sleeping and reading. Music echos through the space no matter your choice in tunes. Honestly the only sounds we heard were those of ships and boats passing through the ship channel. If you’re a ship spotter this is an awesome spot. Well there was the cracking Thunderstorm the final night (epic according to local news outlets). I should note that we were thankful for flashlights, candles, and the gas cook range.
Our goal was to eat in more than at out. The well stocked and organized kitchen was a pleasure to prepare food in. Plenty of all that you need including cookware, flatware, and utensils. The gas cooktop works very well and generates good heat.
Not so far away is there is the Central Market in Poulsbo which is a FANTASTIC Resource from Produce to their Butchery and Seafood Depts! Albertsons is closer for close and general shopping needs. Albertsons is also open until midnight which was very helpful the day we arrived.
We did go out a few times to eat to including Mossback which is a farm to table place with lovely dishes prepared to perfection. Beyond that is the Slippery Pig Brewery amongst others.
The topper was both my wife and daughter (high schooler) SLEPT and READ each day in the window seats and couches. My wife normally takes days to disengage from her work a day life and yet here it was nearly instant.
We hope to back next summer.. We went from exploring to house hunting. I think my family and I have found a place we can look to long term as fantastic VRBO place to stay and hopefully our own home nearby. Flying for locally known Eskimo clad airline (#AirbusForEver) the ferry ride to work south of Seattle is an alluring draw to the Kitsap peninsula.
Many Many thanks to Michelle.. We’ll be back for sure.
Great for all ages! Our family will definitely rent this property again. It has everything!!
Wonderful location for a family getaway... beachfront was ideal!
My family had a very nice time. The the views are amazing and being able to relax on the beach and sit by a campfire right in front of the house is a huge plus. Super relaxing getaway.
"Slice of heaven" is a true statement!
We just enjoyed the stay at this property and I must say "Slice of heaven" is a true statement. It was unreal, that the beach was really couple of steps away from the patio, and we were able to enjoy every moments of what the water showed us. When the tide was low, we walked further into the beach and we were able to spot Mt. Rainier - it was so serene and beautiful. Mt. Baker was always there for us to enjoy the view.
House is equipped with everything you need, really enjoyed the open kitchen and living space. We visited with 5 ppl (three adults and two kids) and we were able to fully relax and unwind. Grill is available outside that we were able to use on the night we arrived. Lots of dishes and mugs and glasses that we were able to use for our meals. We didn't have anything that we went "oh there's no XXX", it was fully furnished and prepared for us.
Thank you so much for sharing this gorgeous place for us to enjoy, indeed the slice of heaven.
Lovely house with all amazing view & a joy to be right on the water!
