About the property

4 Bedrooms, 5 Bath, Sleeps 8

300 foot Ocean Waterfront, 3500 sq ft home with almost 4000 sq ft Deck area and pool. Luxury inside and out. Complete Privacy, with trails through ancient forest and along pristine stream on the property.

Minutes by Ferry from Downtown Edmonds and Seattle. The best of Northwest living. Eagles above you, Orcas, otters and seals in front of you. The vista stretches from the lights of Kingston, past Mt Baker and Whidbey Island, through the active shipping lanes of Puget Sound, to the North Cascade Mountains and Edmonds. The lights at night will enchant you, the forest's sounds will calm you, and the ocean's rhythms will mesmerize you. Amazing views from every room! Active water scene and surprisingly quiet...

Professionally decorated Northwest contemporary living. As new owners, we have made numerous upgrades, but have kept the luxury and charm intact. Custom plank oak floors, warm cedar walls, dark wood beams in the open floor plan. High end kitchen appliances, maple cabinets and copious lighting. Kitchen, den and dining blend together in the open concept, with the massive outdoor deck and pool through the walls of glass. Inside and outside flow together through walls of windows and doors and deck and garden spaces. Down the hall is the comfortable living room with striking views and lots of sitting spaces. The East wing includes the 4 bedrooms. First is the Master Bedroom with a King bed and Master bath with custom cabinetry and stone shower and counter. The Master Bedroom has it's own spectacular view and deck/garden access. A second bedroom is accesses through the Master with a queen bed and fireplace. Or you can use this as a sitting room for reading. Upstairs in the East wing are 2 bedrooms, one with a king and a twin, the other a queen bed and twin, along with 2 bathrooms.

This almost 4 acre property with 300 feet of waterfront combines privacy, luxury, an ancient forest, crystal clear stream, your own privately owned tidelands with clams and crabs, and salmon waters at high tide. The mature landscaping blends with the forest inviting you to stroll quietly through the grounds, undisturbed by the outside world.

The whole family can enjoy the large, in ground pool, which is surrounded by cedar decks, allowing for private sunbathing and refreshing swimming.

Eagles nest in the tree tops, myriad song birds frequent the mature rhododendrons, azaleas, and dogwoods. Guests have been able to see Orcas and otters and seals from the deck.

WIFI, Direct TV, Wii, and hundreds of DVDs and vcrs. Lots of books to relax with.

Under new ownership, the property has been significantly improved.

Beautiful location, lovely home, owner a pleasure to deal with

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our adult children and 4 grandchildren all age 9 and under. The privacy and gorgeous views from the deck and most windows of the house were outstanding. The primary factor in selecting this rental over others was the swimming pool as it keeps the kids engaged. The water was a bit cold as the pool is not heated (especially for a few southerners), but it was still a plus. As others have mentioned, the fact that access for a few bedrooms is through the master bedrooms is a little odd, but not really a disadvantage for a family group like ours.

We spent a lot of time searching for sea glass on the easily accessible beach. Access to Kingston, grocery stores, etc is easy.

The owner is a pleasure to deal with and I certainly recommend this property.

Gorgeous views & grounds; odd bedrooms without closets or bathrooms.

  • 3 of 5

This property is beautiful but has problems. If you're not familiar with the area, be aware taking ferrys to & from Seattle is quite time consuming.

The kitchen was great as was the dining area. These areas easily accommodated our family of 9. The deck & grill were nice. The pool is small & way too cold for us Texans to use in June.

The biggest problem is the bedrooms. Either 6 of us had to share the master bath, which by the way has no doors at the entry or at the commode, or 2 of us could share a small full bath at the opposite end of the house. In order not to disturb others by walking through the master bedroom, the 2 of us in a room with 2 twin beds, had to go outside & back in another door to get to our bathroom across the house. Three of the 5 bedrooms had no closet. There were no TVs in 2 or 3 of the bedrooms. I felt, for the price charged, the closet & bathroom situation was a serious problem.

The owner was helpful (by VRBO messages) ahead of time. There were no problems with locating it and finding keys & the house rules were all reasonable. The laundry room was very nicely equiped.

Awesome House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great - exactly as advertised. The owner, Tom, was great, too. I've dealt with a lot of VRBO owners over the years that were flaky and hard to get a hold of. Or owners that have ridiculous house rules that make it feel like you're staying at your in-laws. That is NOT Tom. Tom emailed back or called back within hours every single time. He was great to work with. You really felt like this was your own place.

The house was fantastic. Everything we needed was there and in working order. Everything was nice and clean, too. The views were spectacular from just about every room. The pool and big deck gave us plenty of outdoor space for everyone. The beds are comfortable. There's tons of parking. The property is beautifully landscaped and has great trails for taking walks. Even though there are neighbors, you feel like you're in your own little world. You don't see or hear anyone. There's enough space that you can have a large group all together or break off and have little moments of privacy. We even saw some river otters out on beach.

We would definitely come back to this place.

Lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely property in a beautiful area of the world! We highly recommend this rental property - lots of room for all of us (10 people). We enjoyed walking along the coast at low tide, picking and eating the figs and blackberries. Also fun to have the pool for the kids, as well as relaxing for the adults. The owners were very helpful and provided a lot of information before we arrived. With family in the area, we will definitely rent this home again. Thank you for the opportunity to rent your lovely home!

What a spot

  • 5 of 5

Kingston is a hidden gem and Tom's house is amazing. There is so much beauty there you never have to leave. You could spend the whole vacation on the pool deck. The house is big and comfortable. It fit our 2 families with grown children (10 people in all) It has a great kitchen with everything you need and Tom is a great host. His house is one of the most beautiful places I have every stayed. Fabulous trip.

Ideal Group Setting

  • 5 of 5

Had a reunion with about 15 people in this location and found it to be a great setting although it wasn't large enough to house all of us - we needed 7 bedrooms. The layout is a bit funky but the house is spacious, clean and well-appointed. The large great room was a perfect gathering place, the deck is huge and nicely set up, and the view is about as good as you can find anywhere. Spectacular is not hyperbole or hype, it is a pure statement of fact. All in all, I would highly recommend it. The owner was also a pleasure to work with.

About Tom Temple

We are outdoor people with a deep appreciation for the balance of nature

Tom Temple purchased this estate in 2014

Why Tom Temple chose Kingston

We fell in love with this special property the first time that we saw it.

What makes this estate unique

We love the privacy, our own beach access without stairs and expansive tidelands at low tide, the mature gardens that are constantly in bloom, and the trails that allow us to wander easily through the huge old trees. The inside of the home combines comfort and luxury, with great common areas, and private views from almost every room
