About Darrin Towe

As an avid sailor I immediately saw the value of this wonderful property. Not only did it provide year round protection for my anchored boats it also considered by many folks in the boating community as one of the most pristine bays in Puget Sound. With an acre of property there are many ways to enjoy. My favorites include fires next to the beach, stand up paddling, kayaking and enjoying the fantastic view.

Darrin Towe purchased this house in 2012

Why Darrin Towe chose Port Ludlow

At only an hour and half away from Seattle this property is the perfect country and beach retreat. I come here when the busy city life becomes overwelming. If your a golfer the news is even better as Port Ludlow provides some great courses. Not into golf? Then how about Port Townsend? Only a short 20 minute drive to the historic city.

What makes this house unique

Having grown up in Seattle I knew first hand that there are very limited waterfront homes like this one. With a public boat launch just 500 feet away one can put their boat in and then have it in front of the house during their stay.

Stunning No Bank Waterfront Home On Mats Mats Bay

Well appointed home, nice quiet area.

  • 4 of 5

The home was very nice, comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen and a great deck overlooking Mats Mats Bay. We brought our small boat and it was very convenient to have access to a mooring right in front of the house. The owner advised us to use the boat ramp during high and medium tides only, that was good advice. Owner's communications with us were timely and friendly. We did choose the house also based on being pet friendly but it was a challenge keeping our dogs off the neighbor's lawn the whole time. Overall, though we enjoyed our stay.

Comfortable relaxing stay with a nice view

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at Darrin Towe's vacation Home. We came from NJ to visit a relative who lives nearby. The nice porch and yard gave us ample room to get together. We enjoyed taking our kayaks into Puget Sound. we were thrilled to see the eagles fish and seals swimming about. The close proximity to Port Townsend was very convenient.

Fabulous location on Mats Mats Bay.

  • 5 of 5

The rolling lawn led down to the water, and it was lovely to take the kayaks out on to the water. This was a delightful location- lots of sun and shade. It was beautifully landscaped and we spent a lot of time outside. Indoors, the house is well appointed and we enjoyed our stay very much.

Nice comfy place.

  • 4 of 5

Went for a girls weekend and enjoyed our stay. The only downfall was we weren't aware there wasn't a microwave. We had pre-prepped a lot of our food so we didn't have to be in the kitchen cooking and doing dishes. It was a minor setback but we survived.

About as picturesque a location as you can get!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful girls' weekend we had at this lovely Mats Mats Bay location. We would highly recommend it for a getaway. The weather during our stay was sunny and wonderful which made the location even more breathtaking. The beds were very comfortable, high-end linens and a nicely stocked kitchen for making meals. Port Townsend is an easy 30 minute drive and lots to see and do in between. ....did I already say we highly recommend this property!

Lives up to its posting and then some!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I came to the Mats Mats house with a another couple and we were all so impressed! The location couldn't be more serene, with the lawn out back sloping down to the Bay. One of the reasons this house stood out on VRBO was the eclectic decor—very comfortable and contemporary—"beach chic!" The house feels new and very well tended—nothing run down. We like to cook and found everything we needed in the kitchen, along with the bbq on the deck. We felt very spoiled in general. The bedrooms are comfortable and the master bedroom is huge and lovely. We made a lot of friends, too. Today, kayaking from the nearby dock, we met a curious seal. An adorable red squirrel paid visits while we sat by the firepit on the little beach. And blue herons are a frequent sight. I would write more but this is out last night and the salmon's on the grill, so I'll close by saying if you're planning a trip anywhere in this area, this house is quite a special find.
