Beautiful location and well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time this weekend. The house was beautifully appointed. We especially appreciated the fully-stocked kitchen. We had everything we needed to cook delicious meals--including sharp knives! The location can't be beat. Easy to get to and right on the water. We saw eagles, the kids played on the beach, and we had delicious s'mores at the fire-pit right out front. The kids loved the bunk-beds and the yard.

Great Place to Get Away with Family & Friends

  • 5 of 5

Overall, an exemplary beach rental experience. Great beachfront access for kayaking and splashing around in the tide. Lots of room to cook, play games and talk, along with away space for naps or quiet time. Well furnished with lots of convenient amenities. Clean and welcoming. We'll probably be back again at some point.

Perfect setting with friends and family

  • 5 of 5

This home was so inviting that you really almost feel as if they have invited you to be part of their family! Little touches like the invite to use their sugar if need be, and the abundant "welcome Basket" with wine!! That was a first! Even the local neighbors welcomed us the moment we appeared outside on the beach. You truly can not get a better beach location. Direct foot access to the sand and water could not be better! The rooms are perfectly set for kids and adults alike. And the beds are SO cozy! Thank you so much for opening your home. We can not wait to come back!

The house, amenities, and beach location are absolutely one of the best our family has seen anywhere.

From the kids bunkroom with great bunkbeds, to the endless views from the master bedroom we cant wait to come back (we have already booked for next summer).

The hosts are so gracious and accomadating and have thought of everything a beach lover would need.

Our two boys, my wife, and I spent the afternoons fishing for Flounder and Cod (cause we couldnt catch any Salmon) or floating in the crystal clear Pudget Sound this is a stunning place with the best in accomodations and ammenities.

Unfortunately this wont be a secret for long.

We thoroughly enjoyed our...

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our one-week stay at this beautiful beach home. Kitchen is fully appointed, with modern appliances; everything you could possibly need is here. This is usually not the case with other vacation home rentals. Bedrooms/beds are very comfortable. Linens and laundry facilities are provided; a huge plus. This beach at Useless Bay is the best to be found in Washington, especially at low tide when you can walk out on the tide flats forever, collect beautiful shells and sand-dollars, and observe interesting ocean and bird life along with the passing ferries, ships, and cruise boats in the distance. Perfect for setting out your beach chairs and cooler, and gradually moving in with the tide. Eagles and herons are everywhere and fun to watch up close. A paradise for kids and adults alike. We can't wait to return!
