About David Afflerbach

Tried and true lovers of the Northwest. We built the house in 1996 as a personal vacation property not knowing our jobs would take us out of state. We now live in Seal Beach CA. We love boating, camping, hiking, seafood, friends and family. We live vicariously through the comments our guests leave behind. We feel blessed to own this fabulous house and are happy to share it with you.

David Afflerbach purchased this house in 1996

Why David Afflerbach chose Port Hadlock

David's family heritage is based in Port Townsend where his mother grew up. This waterfront property was homesteaded by the family over 100 years ago, There are 8 homes all along the beachfront all owned by members of the family. This property has a warmth about it. Once you walk through the front door and look out the expansive windows to the world beyond, you too will feel it.

What makes this house unique

Fully equipped rental. We pride ourselves on making our guests feel comfortable and at home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

David and Kim,

We just wanted to thank you for sharing your wonderful place. Our family had a great vacation there. The view is amazing and as my mom would have said "Good for the Soul". I was so appreciative of how clean and well stocked your place was. It really felt like home for a week. The area was beautiful and we enjoyed it all. One last thing we love to play family games and were so excited you had some of our favorites. Thank you..

My friends and I wanted to stay in a home that automatically invoked relaxation and peace and we found it in David’s home. We enjoyed the seclusion, the views, walking the shoreline, and the provided board/card games. David was a great host, he called the make sure we make it safely and always available to answer questions. Would definitely stay in Oak Bay again.

Beautiful location and home

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic place for our Thanksgiving get together with family. The views were incredible. Beds were very comfortable and the home was stocked with everything we needed for cooking.

Even fun board games :) We hope to return some day.

Great space and view!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house with a beautiful water view. The house is very clean, well-furnished and comfortable. The view from the living room and deck out across Oak Bay from an elevated location is spectacular. The location of the house near Port Hadlock is very convenient to the sites in northern Olympic National Park. Nearby Port Townsend is lovely. It is also an easy day trip into Seattle. The Owner was easy to work with. We very much enjoyed our stay.

Beauty, Tranquility and So Much More

  • 5 of 5

What a magical place! The expansive view of the bay; the floor to ceiling windows through which you can look all the way up to the tops of the evergreens in the front yard and watch them swaying in the breeze; the huge deck; the picnic tables down on the water's edge; the clean, spacious, bright interior for relaxing, cooking meals, and spending time with family... everything about Oak Bay Getaway is wonderful. I am not usually someone to rise at the crack-of-dawn, but while staying here I was actually up at 5:45 AM each day just to sip coffee and watch the continually changing display of colors on the horizon across the bay. Thoroughly relaxing and rejuvenating! In addition, the home offers easy access to Port Townsend, and is also a great jumping off point for west-bound day trips such as Dungeness Spit and Olympic National Park. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you David and Kim for sharing this special place!

House on the Water

  • 5 of 5

This house was great. The kitchen had all the items needed. We had Dungeness crab one night and found plenty of crab crackers to enjoy this fresh crab. The fire pit down by the water was great for evening gatherings looking at the stars and enjoying an adult beverage. During the day, down by the water you could see Mount Rainier in the distance. The instant hot water system made sure we never ran out of hot water. It was very nice.
