Great view of Olympic Mountains and Victoria, British Columbia. Located in town just a few blocks North of the Olympic National Park Headquarters. It has a large fenced back yard with fruit trees as well as a covered patio. Port Angeles is a great Pacific Northwest town with easy access to Hurricane Ridge, the Hoh Rain Forest and the ferry to Victoria. This wonderful home is big enough to bring the whole family, with all the comforts of your home away from home.
We are a married couple who have family in Port Angeles. We live in Alaska, but visit Port Angeles several times per year.
Virginia Southmayd purchased this house in 2005
We bought this house in 2005 when we were living in Port Angeles. Circumstances took us to Alaska but we hope to live in this house when we retire. The house was built in 1947 by a famous Port Angeles builder and has had many upgrades since.
This home is located in town, so it has easy access to all conveniences of Port Angeles. It is less than a mile to multiple coffee shops, the library, the grocery store and the Olympic National Park. You can sit on the couch in the living room and look south at the Olympic Mountains or look north at Victoria and ships sailing through the Straits of Juan de Fuca.
I'm proud to say I'm the new manager. How excited I am to be working with the owner with our vision for this house. The photos definitely do not capture the beauty of everything this home has to offer. The view of the water from the living room, dining room and the kitchen made me want to see more immediately. We're taking one room at a time and will be posting new photos as we go. This is a rare find in that ALL THE FLOORS ARE HEATED. You'll be glad you stayed at our home called "North to Alaska."
It took a minute for me to find the email with the key box number, and a hike around from the driveway to the front door. The front lawn was large, the house set well back In a quiet neighborhood. I didn't see a car moving once while we were there.
Entering, the temperature was 62 (Virginia said she'd set it to 75!?). Many rooms had individual thermostats; I don't know why. When we returned from dinner the house made it to 72.
We visited while scrolling through the tv with a slow scrolling guide on one channel. Xfinity with HBO and Showtime, WiFi too; the commercial fare and public t.v. is very limited. A smart t.v. (for internet streaming) with a larger screen would have been better. Since we didn't stay long it wasn't too important. I only did a little texting and phoning.
The livingroom had two comfortable couches. Large pillows would have been nice for laid back laptop computing or tv watching. The kitchen was okay for coffee and a had fridge to hold our drinks, etc. We didn't cook so don't know about that.
There were two bedrooms with doubles, and a single bed bedroom upstairs. We found the fourth double downstairs with a second bathroom. Both baths were clean with good showers. The bed I used was comfortable, but strangely high in the air. I'm six feet and I had to jump up backwards to get on it. It might fit someone 6'4" or taller, but would have been a challenge for a shorter person. It was hard to sit on the edge of the bed to dress. The room should have a couple of chairs to get dressed on.
The other rooms all had curtains on the windows, but not mine. It was dark out when we arrived, so I assumed it wasn't a problem. However, next day I could see that the room is visible from outside. I had to unplug the clock as I couldn't find out how to turn off the alarm when it came on at midnight. From about 2 to 2:30 the back porch light came on and woke me; I thought it was the dawn.
The bed was comfortable, although I only needed one pillow, not the seven on the bed; I had to put six away before going to bed.
We made coffee in the french press; there was a pot and filters there, too. We'd sweet rolls on the kitchen table. We never got near the large dining room table.
The house was very clean with no dust or dirt visible anywhere. There were enough dishes in the kitchen to feed many people at once.
I am only sorry that we didn't have a reason to stay longer.
Had a great time. The house was in a quite area of town. It was very clean when we arrived. I recommend this for those liking for more room than a hotel for family, and friends looking to stay together.
Clean house with lots of dining and sleeping options, conveniently located close to town amenities and Olympic Park destinations.
This updated home is very comfortable and in a great location - very close to Olympic National Park, lovely views of the water. Lovely yard and fruit trees. Friendly, responsive property manager. I'd highly recommend this home.
The house that we rented in Port Angeles worked out perfectly for us. It was clean and spacious. And we were able to get around easily, even with a wheelchair. The Port Angeles area was a great community with Beautiful hiking and very affordable local services. Our favorite place was the back patio. It was warm in the day, cool in the evening, and the fruit trees were wonderful. This is a place we would definitely visit again.
House is older with lots of character. We loved the large windows. Fruit trees in the back yard - plum, pear and apple. House is totally convenient to everything, grocery shopping, whale watching, restaurants and entrance to Olympic National Park are only minutes away. We did a whale watching trip which was great. Walked around downtown and on the pier. Great restaurants and little coffee shops everywhere. We are so happy we chose this house over all the places we looked at. We would definitely recommend staying here and if we return to that area for vacation would definitely stay at this house again. Can't think of a single negative.
