About The Owner

I wasBorn and raised here on Hartsine Island. My Grandfather migrated here from Croatia almost 100 years ago. He and Grandma fell in love with the pristine beauty and peacefulness of this place. They built a farm and raised a large family with many happy memories here.

Why The Owner chose Puget Sound South

We built our cabin on the homestead site of my Granparent's first home.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy long walks on the beach with our dogs , clam digging, fishing, boating and waterskiing.

Beautiful Property - looking forward to coming back

  • 5 of 5

The house and grounds are extremely well kept. The beds are comfortable, the view is great and the home well stocked.

Our days were spent walking to McMicken Island during low tide, hiking Harstine State Park, walking to Fudge Point, and swimming in Case Inlet and Mike's freshwater pool. Our evenings were spent canoeing around McMicken Island and into the Fudge Point estuary, dining on fresh clams provided by Mike and enjoying beautiful lawn barefoot around our evening fire.

Thanks Mike for sharing your home and treating us like friends instead of tenants!

The perfect pacific northwest weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights at this beautiful Harstine Island cabin with 3 couples, a toddler, and a baby. There was a little something for everyone. We brought kayaks (which we were able to launch nearby), dug for clams (which there were an abundance of), ate oysters (which Mike hand picked for us), played lawn games on the beautiful grass, went for bike rides, had bonfires, and enjoyed the beautiful views of the sound and Mount Rainier. Mike was very welcoming and helpful. Minimal cell service and no internet made for a much needed relaxing and rejuvenating long weekend. We will definitely be back!

Secluded, peaceful place with dramatic views

  • 5 of 5

Its a beautiful and peaceful place which worked great for our private family reunion. The relaxing and inspiring view of the water, the island and wildlife refreshes the soul. The well appointed amenities and warm welcome from the owners made us feel at home. No restaurants or shops nearby so bring groceries and enjoy using the nice kitchen. Having no TV or internet gave us more time for board games and just talking to each other. We'd like to come back.

Relaxing, beautiful family vacation cabin!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place where my 4 and 6 year old children could explore the Puget Sound with their dad, who grew up in the area. I am very glad that I was able to book this outstanding rental, which fit the bill perfectly. The kids were able to explore the Sound and it's wildlife to their hearts content. They got so hold starfish, jelly fish, sand dollars and every kind of shell imaginable. They dug clams at the state park and we made fresh clam chowder. This rental was stocked with all the right equipment to make the chowder, including a grinder, to grind up the larger clams!

The property is beautifully maintained. We loved the green grass which was thick an plush. The outdoor fire pit was great in the evening to roast marsh mellows and watch the tide come in. The beds were luxurious and we slept really well. It was nice and quiet at night with only birds and the occasional boat.

The owners were very friendly and helpful for our stay. Mike showed us around when we first arrived and even left us some fresh produce midway through our stay (green beans and cucumbers!!)

There is not a TV or internet service in this rental which was a positive for my family. We had excellent cell phone service, however. It was great for my kids (and probably us older folks) to have a vacation with less screen time.

I would recommend this rental without reservation to any family or friends. There are actually 3 full RV hook ups as well, making the space available to expand to fit more people if necessary. If you are looking for a vacation without a crowd, with beautiful views, and interesting wildlife, rent this spot. You won't regret it!

Ideal cabin getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was awesome, everything was brand new and freshly cleaned. It was a very easy drive from downtown Seattle. The views were spectacular from inside and from the patio. Mike and Shelley are very friendly and helpful with the local area and travel info. He raises clams and oysters on the property and will guide you in gathering and preparing them. We had an excellent quiet and secluded trip. I highly recommend this property if you want a quiet getaway to experience the beauty of the puget sound. We saw eagles, seals, otters, deer, and various birds right from the patio and the beach is easily accessible and fun for long walks.

beautiful cabin and great view--very clean

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful trip. Mike and Shelly are great hosts--they are super friendly and generous. The cabin is in a fantastic location with an amazing view. It was really well-equipped, warm, and clean. There is no TV or internet, which we viewed as a plus. The windows are great for enjoying the Sound if the weather's not good, and the lawn is ideal when the weather cooperates. It's an easy walk across to McMicken Island State Park when the tide is low. There is lots of great wildlife to see--bald eagles every day.

The description and photos are accurate. The property is very well-maintained. As noted above, the owner is extremely helpful. We highly recommend this property and plan to return.
