Linens, sheets and bedding are all new and we have down comforters on most of the beds. The kitchen and main bathroom are also on the main level. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need- a garbage disposal, coffee maker, toaster, blender, mixer etc... We provide napkins, paper towels, spices, coffee, tea, lemonade, syrup, oils, ziploc bags, foil etc... Kitchen/dining area can seat up to 12. There is a deck off the kitchen/dining area, complete with a new gas barbecue. The master bedroom is located upstairs and has vaulted ceilings, all new Pottery Barn bedding, a flat screen TV and a private deck and bathroom. We also have an air conditioning unit in the master bedroom as well as on the main level living room so it stays cool on those hot summer nights! Downstairs is another great family gathering space! There is a large leather sectional couch, brand new large flat screen TV, foosball and games for all to enjoy! A full-sized washer/dryer and bathroom are also downstairs.

About Darci Russell

We are natives to the Northwest and live in Bellevue, Wa. Many of our great family memories and experiences have been with our two boys on Harstine Island. As our boys got older, our lives became busier. We decided to rent our vacation home and share our love of the area with others. It's a wonderful place all year long, whether you're enjoying the long hot summer days and roasting marshmallows by the fire or cuddling up inside watching the rain hit the water.

Darci Russell purchased this House in 1987

Why Darci Russell chose Shelton

We fell in love with Harstine Island for so many reasons. First and foremost, we love the peace, quietness and beauty of the South Sound. We truly enjoy the no bank beach, something that is fairly rare on the island. It's a relatively short drive from Seattle and we don't have to worry about ferry schedules! We are somewhat secluded and have views of Indian Island right across from us. We love looking out at water and trees instead of other homes- this is a very tranquil setting.

                                                      Great New Year’s Weekend Getaway!

                                                      Dawn G.

                                                      We really enjoyed our New Years weekend getaway to Harstine Island! Darci was great accepting our last minute booking. The house was well stocked and ready to go when we arrived. It was the perfect size for our group, which was two families with two kids each. The double bunk bed room was great for the kids. The upstairs master being the only room upstairs was great. Darci responded quickly to our questions and was nice enough to give us a late check out on New Year’s Day. We’ll definitely come back again. Thank You!

                                                      This is a great place!

                                                      Alan R.

                                                      Great peaceful south sound location with tons to do. Darci was super helpful and responsive. The house is great for several couples or a large family group. We couldn't have had a nicer experience.

                                                      Great getaway

                                                      Janine P.Mercer island, WA

                                                      I will admit that we booked this place despite the photos being somewhat hard to follow and many with strange filters. But it was available and the reviews were good so we took a chance... and we loved the house. It's right on the water, clean, quiet, spacious and well-equipped. It's pretty kid friendly (we have a preschooler and kindergartener) and has a great deck right off the kitchen. We were there during a heat wave and warned about keeping the blinds shut, but honestly didn't have any problems. The only downside was that the ice maker wasn't working and there were no ice trays. We would definitely come back and recommend it for others.

                                                      Great waterfront retreat!

                                                      Bonnie B.

                                                      The house is very clean & well stocked with anything & everything you need. Great location, very comfortable & totally relaxing.

                                                      Kids Had Fun

                                                      Our kids (8, 8, 10, 10 and 2) had such a good time. We kayaked, beach combed and explored. I recommend the U pick farm on the island. We picked fresh veggies and played with all the farm animals. I wasn't able to get the Xbox or Roku on the top floor TV to work. Darci replied to my texts, but I think printed instructions would be nice. Also the 2 outside garbage cans were full so we had to store 3 bags in the house to avoid animals. Darci was very responsive.

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      Thanks so much for your feedback and I'm so glad you're family had a good time at the beach. I'm really sorry about the X-box not working. It was working two weeks ago so possibly the cords disappeared by mistake with another family. We are going to remove the X-box as the cords and set up can be confusing. I know your kids were disappointed! We are looking into why the Roku wasn't working upstairs. I also apologize for the garbage being full. These are things that are a bit out of our control. If a guest doesn't pull the cans to the main road (as per the instructions), the garbage man can't empty them. With that said, you still had to store the garbage in the house which certainly wasn't fun for you. I'm so sorry! I do hope your family will be back again!

                                                      Our family got together for the 29th year on the island for our annual summer reunion. This was our first time at Salmon Point, but everyone agreed, we'll be back! The beach, the privacy, the sunsets and the star gazing made this property outstanding. The house is super comfortable and roomy and Darci is great to work with. Thanks for making our summer wishes come true!
