Owner info

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Hansville, WA, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
