About Barbara

I'm a Seattle native and grew up in the Magnolia area. Went to Queen Anne high school and the University of Washington. Married my college sweetheart 30 years ago and have 2 awesome kids in college. I love the outdoors, skiing, hiking, soccer and football. Also a proud owner of two adorable, precocious huskies.

Barbara purchased this house in 2000

Why Barbara chose Puget Sound South

My husband and I built this home in 2000. My extended family spent our holidays out here and I learned how to waterski in the warm waters of Von Geldren Cove. This is a special place and one I wanted to share with my children.

What makes this house unique

The Cape Cod style gives the home a casual elegance, yet beachy feel. We wanted it to eminate a Nantucket feel and style. The 100 feet of waterfront is perfect for boating, swimming, barbecuing or digging clams. The Von Geldren Cove is calm, warm and fun to swim across or waterski in. The fresh air calms your soul and allows you to sleep soundly surrounded by the singing birds and beautiful sunsets.

Fully stocked beachfront get-away!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! Kitchen was well stocked for a weekend in, snuggled up by the fire! Great large table for meals and games. Convertible king bed worked like a charm! Perfect location for a quick weekend get-away (from Seattle, anyway) on the sand! Barbara was a great host - responsive and accommodating!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay! The house is very comfortable, spacious and attractively decorated.

We especially appreciated the extremely well stocked kitchen as well as the serene setting of the house itself. It was so much fun to walk down to the beach and use the kayaks and see all the abundant sand dollars and clams.

We will definitely stay again!

Great weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful summer weekend with the entire family here, including my parents and nephews. The kitchen is well-stocked and easy to use and there was ample space to spread out during the day and come together at the dinner table each evening. We had a great time exploring the cove on the dingy, swimming, relaxing and picking huckleberries at Penrose Pt. Thanks and we'll definitely keep this house on our list for family gatherings in the future!
