Sabine purchased this House in 2000
Why Sabine chose Poulsbo
Living in the heart of Silicon Valley in California year-round, Edgewater Bluff provided us the much needed escape from the noise, the crowds, the daily hustle-bustle and the start-up company stress. For years, we did not feel the need to own a TV or have internet service. Simply sitting in the living room and looking out the window, reading a book or napping was very satisfying. We noticed that the clouds, the water on the hood canal, the reflection of the sun on the snow-capped Olympic Mountains, the colors and patterns changed constantly. With continuously moving wildlife, various small birds, bald eagles, occasional dolphins and seals or the naval vessels (yes, even a submarine), crab fishermen, University of Washington research vessels sailing by, we felt that we owned world’s largest “flat-screen”. We enjoyed the garden and its hundreds of species of flowers and plants lovingly and painstakingly maintained for many years. We entertained friends on the deck, sipping wine and enjoying the sunset. We no longer woke up to the sound of traffic under our window, but by a bald eagle flying by or seagulls teasing a goose. We did not realize it was so late when the sun stayed up past 10 p.m. during summer. We felt like we were in a different, relaxing, carefree world.

3 hour sunsets!
The wonderful views of the Hood Canal and Olympic Mountain Range are breathtaking. All of the senses are inspired not only with the sights but the sounds of songbirds, the cries of the eagles overhead ,and the hum of the chubby bumblebees. The scent of lavender and salty air completes the experience. The ideal location of this magical place was my base to explore the entire Kitsap Peninsula. And when I was not wandering, the sunsets went on and on...
The Perfect Place to Stay
Right on Hood Canal, with stunning view of the Olympic Mountains what more could you ask for. The house is also conveniently located to the main roads that lead everywhere. This is not the first house we have rented from Sabine and it won't be the last. She is wonderful to do business with. We saw all kinds of wildlife and was lucky enough to see a submarine and it entourage go by. My husband and I will be staying here again.
The view was amazing-- it is one of the most serene places I have ever been to. The amenities were wonderful and just as described. The garden is gorgeous! Can't wait to come back!
Great cottage and view!
We had a great time at this cottage - so wonderful to sit on the deck and not hear anything but the birds! Cottage is well maintained, and the view cannot be beat! Would love to go back again.
A perfect spot and a perfect house!
The view was amazing! We enjoyed our stay at this lovely home. It was peaceful and very relaxing. We hope to come back soon.
