The Shipping Lanes House is located in Hansville, WA close to the Seattle/Bainbridge Island and Edmonds/Kingston ferries. This spacious and open 3 bedroom, 2 bath house includes a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, large master suite with jetted tub and private access to an outdoor spa with amazing water views. Lie in bed and watch ships pass in the night and enjoy sweeping views of the Puget Sound Shipping Lanes along with beautiful Whidbey Island.
Take advantage of hiking trails that start right outside your front door, and hike for miles through the Hansville Greenway. Enjoy local beaches and the Point-No-Point lighthouse, a nature conservatory and nearby Buck Lake. Just a short drive away is the scenic and historical waterfront Scandinavian village of Poulsbo where you'll enjoy strolling in and out of quaint shops and many restaurants. Be sure not to miss the historic town of Port Gamble only twenty minutes away. The Shipping Lanes House is an ideal place for a family vacation or a romantic getaway. Come and play!

Hello All! Our names are Ed and Patti Dewing and we have lived in Hansville since 1990 where we raised our two daughters Chelsie and Lindsay. We love this area and have been exploring it for all these years and still find new and fun spots to enjoy. Ed has been a flight attendant for Delta Airlines for 34 years and Patti has worked for the North Kitsap School District for 17 years. Chelsie, the oldest daughter, works for Children´s Hospital in Seattle and Lindsay is currently serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Honduras. We love the sun, sand and beach and although Washington may seem like a unusual place to find that we have found that some of the best of what´s around lies right outside our backdoor. We hope you can come and find a bit of your own paradise in the Pacific Nortrhwest!
Ed and I decided to buy a vacation rental because traveling is in our blood and we have been so lucky as to travel to many parts of the world. We have always thought about how we would create the perfect getaway and vacation environment and we decided that the perfect place would be here on the Kitsap Penninsula. We know the area very well and can give information about all the secret hideaways and fun places to visit. So we have taken on the challange of creating a cozy and fun home away from home! Another reason we purchased this home in particular is because the home we live in looks out over the Hood Canal but the vacation rental home looks out over the Puget Sound Shipping Lanes yet the homes are only a few miles apart. The difference between the two water views is amazing and we have really enjoyed the contrast between the two bodies of water. Hansville and the Kitsap Peninsula have a lot to offer and we are so close to the home that we can help you create the perfect weekend getaway or extended stay. Its a wonderful location because you´ve got some incredible Northwest beaches that reside in a small but lively town yet, Seattle is only a ferry boat ride away. All in all it has been a blast creating a home where people can come and enjoy the beauty of our town and still feel at home!
While staying at our property we enjoy mostly the view that is constantly changing and in motion. The amount and variety of boats that pass through the Shipping Lanes on a daily basis provides some of the greatest and never boring views we have ever seen. We enjoy the hot tub that looks out onto the water both at night and during the day. There are constantly different types of wildlife, depending on the season, that can be easily spotted from the house including deer, racoons, many species of birds,eagles, fox and whales. There is a wonderful walking path right outside the front door, and from there, are miles and miles of nature walks that can be explored. We also enjoy the functionality and diversity of the home. The house is fully stocked with everything you could need in the kitchen. There are board games, a library for adults and kids, as well as movies, music, and a full on game room. At the same time a guest could easily decide to do nothing but relax and take in the views from the hot tub or the jacuzzi in the master suite. Its ready for a family or a romantic getaway for two. The Shipping Lanes house is a home away from home... even for us and we live only 2 miles away.
"Amazing views from this well appointed vacation home! Every wish anticipated right down to puzzles, book, games, game tables (set-up garage) movies, music, hot tub and much more. We can't imagine not enjoying this wonderful get away place. We can certainly look forward to the next visit."
Again, we enjoyed our stay and can look forward to our next visit. Daughter and son-in-law came up from Tacoma on Saturday to have time with us and they really enjoyed the view of the water. Thanks again!
We are four older ladies celebrating three birthdays! We enjoyed every aspect of our three days. We loved the hot tub, the beautiful view, the well appointed kitchen and of course everything there is to do within 50 miles. In fact, we want to come back in the summer. This was leaps and bounds better than any hotel or condo. The owners have thought of everything.
This home had everything we wanted and a great location too, only a short drive from Kingston and Paulsbo (check out Sluy's Bakery!). House was clean and kitchen was well equipped. The hot tub was super relaxing, the view was great, lots of neat ships passing by. Not even the storm could keep us from enjoying our stay.
We had an enjoyable time coming back to shipping lane's house after a day of adventures. The hot tub was a treat. I think Patrice and Ed have thought of everything from the robes, kids books, legos and kitchen items. We look forward to returning with such a beautiful and private view of the water...we also spied a pair of bald eagles landing in nearby trees!
It was mostly beautiful weather to enjoy this beautiful property. It was less than 2 miles to my daughters house. So made for easy access without disrupting their busy schedule. My daughter did not get the Seahawks game but we did. So we had company!
There are not many rentals in this area with the amenities this lovely house had. It was larger than expected and very comfortable. Maybe a little hard for 6'4" husband to get out of the low couches but they were comfortable. We always bypass a rental with a futon. We are 58 and 60 and comfort has changed since our younger days. The beds were comfortable and we slept well considering we are used to a king size bed. It had homey touches of quilted bedding and décor as well as cute beach décor. I made 2 apple pies while here and the place smelled wonderful. We enjoyed such a variety of ships and tugs and sailboats going by. We watched an eagle in the trees for a long time. He was huge and plump. We listened to the chipmunks chatter and fight. We did not use the hot tub but it was available if we had wanted to. I will stay here again. This is in my top 2 rentals I like. I would recommend this place to others who want to have a nice vacation. The layout of the house was great and clean. So much I would have liked to have done, if I was more mobile. We did manage to visit the lighthouse and have coffee at a nearby park a couple of times. With the books I brought and with what they have available to read, you could never get bored. I have never seen so many baskets of books! Oh yeah, and the best feature: windows clean to see the view out of!!! I can't say how many times this has been an issue at other places. Thank you Patty and Ed
We had a wonderful time. Views were awesome. One of the people with us had an app on his phone that told us the names and origins and destinations of all the vessels that passed thru. Highly recommend the app. The owners did a great job of decorating and made it feel like a home away from home. Very clean and well maintained. The house was everything it was described to be. We would highly recommend this listing to our friends and family. We spent a day exploring the surrounding areas, Indianola, Port Gamble, lighthouses and both casinos. A lot of fun and memoires created on this trip. We'll definitely return. Debbie & Dave
The Shipping Lanes House was perfect for us. We played lots of board games inside and out, shared cooking meals in the big kitchen, played on the beach, which is a short walk away along a path and enjoyed the hot tub. The beds are super comfortable with plenty of closet and drawer space to unpack. But.... it's the awesome view that makes this place so perfect. We could watch all the ship traffic from several rooms. Loved it!
