About Daniel Johnson

My wife and are are both Socialworkers in Seattle where we live with our two children, a dog and 2 cats. We like to travel, yet our favorite destination tends to be Harstine Island.

Daniel Johnson purchased this house in 2004

Why Daniel Johnson chose Puget Sound South

I grew up in nearby Shelton. I have fond memories of coming to Harstine Island with my twin brother and Dad to look at property - there was no bridge at that time, just a small ferry. We purchased the land 25 years ago because of the natural beauty and my love of the water. We decided to build a family cabin where we could spend time with family and friends. We took two years to build it working with my retired high school geometry teacher as the general contractor - it was a labor of love. We finished the cabin in 2004.

What makes this house unique

The stunning view of the cove through the trees, relaxing in the hot tub, cooking in the well equipped kitchen, playing games in front of the fireplace , ping pong, watching movies, kayaking, sailing, fishing and walks to the marina are among our top 10 favorites at the cabin.

Fantastic, beautiful, and peaceful home in great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to rent! I came here for a quick getaway from the city. It was extremely relaxing and the wonderful home plus the kayaks, canoe, hot tub, ping pong, and wonderful assortment of CDs really came together to lead to a memorable and nice experience. The marina a few doors down has ice cream and beer, and the state park across the water is a nice little place to explore via kayaks. We even saw some big jellyfish while out kayaking.

This is a beautiful cabin in a beautiful spot. It's great for a family reunion, with lots to do!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this cabin; it's beautifully and soulfully laid out. Loved the games, ping pong table, inspirational quotes on bathroom closet door, great kitchen, fireplace, hot tub, and outdoor fire pit. We also loved the water toys: kayaks, canoe, etc. I hope we will stay here again sometime soon.

This home was so special and hosts were so generous. The pictures don't do justice to the warm, beautiful, comfortable and inviting atmosphere. The house was spotless (and not a bit musty as per another review). Can't imagine you'd get bored outdoors with all the boats there for your use, the fire pit, hot tub, nearby parks etc, but if you do you don't miss the game room, the huge collection of board games and the hidden art bench for kids! Although there are neighbors nearby it was extremely private. Don't miss the big cat refuge- a hidden gem! Host was responsive and kind and accommodated an important request that made our vacation amazing. As my daughter exclaimed when she first saw the place "OMG you rented PARADISE!" We can't wait to go back. One thing to know for those with kids who might want to swim- there's a fair amount of boat traffic and the water in the cove seemed slightly brackish. Didn't put my kids off at all :).

Totally amazing Big Cabin in the Woods and on the water. Great big dock, awesome cove, large hot tub and very large gathering area on the deck. Wonderful place inside and out, really loved this trip. Loved kayaking on the sound, caught 4 large Rock Crabs. Thank you!

A Nice Place to Relax

  • 4 of 5

This was a very nice, clean home, especially the living room/kitchen area and the master bedroom. The location is great, with a fabulous view, and we had a lovely vacation. A couple of the bedrooms smell somewhat musty... probably a bit difficult to avoid in the Seattle area. The dock was absolutely wonderful to have. It is a bit of a steep walk up and down, which is fine for most, but some might not be able to handle it. And Harstine Island is a hidden gem!

Great house with awesome amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing girls weekend. The house was spacious and had everything we needed. We lucked out on the weather and were able to enjoy the sunshine sitting on the dock, kayaking, and even swimming. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed to cook great food. The house was clean and well kept up with plenty of space for our group. Thank you for sharing your amazing house with us!!!
