"Close enough to use technology but far enough away you won't want to".

Bill Gates has four vacation homes on Hood Canal (Google it!) but it's still a well-kept secret just 90 min. from Seattle (2 hrs. from Portland). Few places in the world offer such natural diversity with the OCEAN & MOUNTAINS - both in one location.

'Giggle Fish' is your Beach Cabin + Guest Boathouse located in Hoodsport, WA, on Hood Canal. It's so close to the water you can fish from the living room. This property is unique because it sits on a corner lot with a natural, unbuildable beach (200') between you and the neighbor. Privacy is hard to find here where homes normally sit side-by-side.

ACCOMODATIONS

* Relax in the comfort of this 2-story home on 100' of waterfront built in 1999

* BEACH CABIN - 2 Bed & 1 Bath (1,000 sq. ft.)

* The cozy Boathouse has a Queen LOG BED, private deck (right over the water) and 3/4 bath, plus flat screen TV.

The Cabin has 2 bedrooms upstairs both with KING Beds and flat screen TV's. The cozy Boathouse has a Queen LOG BED, private deck (right over the water) and 3/4 bath. Awake to breathtaking water views - and watch SEALS and BIRDS - all from the comfort of your warm, cozy bed. This fully fenced yard has a child safety gate to the beach. The Boathouse is great for teens or if one couple desires privacy. No garage, park along Hwy 101 like the locals.

INDOOR AMENITIES

Down comforters and luxury bedding in every room, plus a KING "SLEEP NUMBER BED" in Master and modern, whimsical beach decor throughout. The main level includes an open kitchen with eating bar and stools, dining nook with seating for 4 and sectional couch, full bath, 40" HD LCD Cable TV, Blue-Ray DVD player, games, Wi-Fi, toys, books, crib/Packn'Play, inflatable toddler bed.

Beach towels, chairs, cooler, buckets, shovels/rakes provided for your day playing on the beach. 2 one-man Kayaks provided.

About Vacation Rental 365

Newly Listed with VR365 Property Management which is run by our good friend, Derek, who is a true PRO at Customer Service.

Why Vacation Rental 365 chose Hoodsport

After 2 years of searching the PNW for a special beach town, we finally chose Hoodsport! A Hoodsport address was key because it's the only real 'town' with full amenities along the entire 60 mile stretch of Hood Canal (aside from Belfair at the far end). This home is just 2 minutes from the Hoodsport IGA Grocery Store which is extremely convenient (especially for wine and dessert at night!) We love the quick drive from Seattle & Portland -- literally two roads - I-5 to Hwy 101 -- and not being at the mercy of a ferry. The West side of Hood Canal is an 'Outdoor Lover's Paradise' with endless Ocean & Mountain activities. Hoodsport is a charming, waterfront town with Restaurants, Pub, Gift Shops, 2 Liquor Stores, Winery, Gas, Coffee Shop, Ice Cream Shop, Public Dock, Arts & Crafts, Dive Shop, Massage, Salmon Hatchery, Bank, Library, Outfitters Store (w/licensing), Olympic Park Visitor's Center, Kayak Rentals & Whiskey Distillery (opening soon).

What makes this Cabin unique

Giggle Fish is a 'One of a Kind' vacation property. The rare privacy makes it one of the best beach lots in Hoodsport. It's also one of the few with a lawn for kids and playing Bocce (provided). It's a perfectly-balanced getaway because you can adventure -- or RELAX and do nothing at all -- both while surrounded by the peace and serenity of nature. FOR HIKERS - just up the hill is the Olympic National Park 'Staircase' entrance and many popular day hikes surround the home (all levels). FOR SCUBA DIVERS - you can literally SEE world-famous 'Sund Rock' dive spot from the deck (See Photo) voted one of the world's top Wall Dives by 'Scuba Diving Magazine' and 'Octopus Hole' is just 1.5 miles North - both known for GIANT OCTOPUS & wolf eels 'So close to the water it feels like you're on the boat, but with all the comforts of home.'

                                                          Our stay at Giggle Fish was better than we could have imagined! The solitude, the gorgeous weather (go got lucky and had sunshine most of the time we were there), the wildlife (we saw seals, a blue heron, and lots of water fowl), the view, and the property itself was amazing! We would definitely stay again!

                                                          We had a fabulous stay at Giggle Fish! House was beautifully situated on the beach, with gorgeous views. Close to Hama Hama where we picked up fresh oysters and crab which we prepared in the very well appointed kitchen. The property is fully fenced, but keep in mind if you have a small-medium dog, there are large gaps along the freeway side of the fence that are VERY large. We didn't feel comfortable having our dog off-leash in the yard which made for some realllllly cold potty breaks since it snowed while we were there. Would be great to add a hot tub to this property. Overall, lovely place!

                                                          Thanks Carol for the great review! I’m thrilled to read you had a fabulous stay at Giggle Fish. I understand your concerns being a dog owner myself. It’s always a challenge fencing in small sized dogs because they can get through almost every sized fence. Its important to note this homes fenced yard does provide optimal security for most dogs. Thanks again for staying with us and we look forward to having you back again sometime soon!

                                                          We had a fabulous stay at "Giggle Fish"! We found the house to be very clean and comfortable. We appreciated the well-stocked kitchen. It had everything we needed and it was easy to feel "right at home". The set up was perfect for two couples. The boathouse was private and surprisingly comfortable and cozy. One of the highlights was having an outdoor fire. We loved being right on the water! We were entertained by all of the wildlife on the water. The location was perfect for us! It should be noted however, that there is quite a bit of traffic noise, which was a bit of a distraction. Even so, we truly enjoyed the house! We're looking forward to our next vacation at "Giggle Fish"!

                                                          Lots to like about the area and this house. The canal was gorgeous and having the kayaks was a real treat. We thought the house was very comfortable and well stocked. Our big complaint was the traffic. I did not realize from other reviews that the house was located on the highway and it certainly detracted from getting away from it all. Also one person in our party got very sick from eating oysters off the shore. Visitors should do their research before diving in.

                                                          We spent four lovely nights at Giggle Fish. Everything was perfect and a place that I would recommend to family and friend. We had to make a trip back to the property as my son-in-law left his keys. Derrick was so helpful in contacting the house keeper who made a special trip to get us the keys that she had hidden in a safe place. Nordstrom service with a smile.

We are happy to read you enjoyed Giggle Fish on the Hood Canal and that you would recommend to family & friends. I was happy to help get your keys back and glad it all worked out for you. Enjoy the rest of your summer and we look forward to having you back again sometime soon. -Vacation Rental 365, Derek Doremus

                                                          Hood Canal isn't realllllllly a canal, but a glacier-formed fjord which carved 60 miles along The Olympic Mountains. The mountains skyrocket 7,000 feet straight up from Hood Canal, creating a majestic, breathtaking backdrop. The clear waters provide world-class salmon fishing, crabbing, clamming and shrimping and miles of pristine shoreline for kayakers, divers, beachcombers, boaters and lovers of nature.
