About the property

Wake up refreshed, make a pot of coffee and enjoy water views from almost every room. The wraparound deck faces the water and is great for enjoying outdoor meals or just hanging out. Relax in the deck chairs by the chiminea facing the water or sit by the fire pit with water views. Go for a kayak paddle and play hide and seek with the resident seals.

About Janette Roberts

A Chicago transplant since 1994 I reside in a suburb 20 minutes east of Seattle, Washington with my wonderful partner Larry Miller and our two pooches, Vino and Bella. An accountant by degree, I run my own bookkeeping company.

My dream has always been to own a waterfront property and Seal Cove Bungalow has made that dream come true. Dear friends built the bungalow and put in the the amazing patios and alcoves. They gave me a key and said the bungalow needs to be shared. A few years later I had the good fortune to purchase the bungalow and it has remained a place to be shared with family, friends and people who seek a respite. Once you arrive you won't want to leave. The tidal cove works its serene magic on one's senses. It's the reach of the timeless into our needful lives.

Janette Roberts purchased this bungalow in 2002

What makes this bungalow unique

This cabin bungalow is an amazing place on earth. Come and enjoy the peaceful sounds of nature and engage in kayaking on the Puget Sound with the seals. There is nothing better than a quiet morning of coffee, wildlife and sea stars, a day of adventures on the ocean and a roaring fire and a glass of wine at sunset.

Paradise In the South Puget Sound

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice bungalow in a most beautiful and peaceful location. It is wonderfully and artistically decorated. Everywhere you look, both inside and out, there is a visual and artistic surprise and delight. The kitchen is very well equipped. The bedrooms are adequate, as is the bathroom. There is a very nice outdoor dining area and tiered seating areas down to the water's edge. It's a wonderful place to relax and commune with nature. For us, the only negative was the distance and effort required to haul our kayaks from the parking area down to the water's edge. The rest is great!

Our stay at Seal Cove was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish our stay at the bungalow was perfectly perfect! It is absolutely beautiful. We loved the way it was decorated. It made us feel right at home. The deer come right through the property. The seals swam just feet from our Kayaks, watching with curiosity. It was the best vacation we have had! I highly recommend it to anyone.

Cute Little House on a Beautiful Puget Sound Cove

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in July and had a great time. It's a beautiful view with lots of wildlife to watch, and it's so very quiet, The trip was quite relaxing and rejuvenating. The kayaks made it extra fun as we ventured out and saw many birds, seals and then a fantastic view of Mt. Rainier. There's no cell signal in the house (we have AT&T), but that was a plus for us as we were looking to unplug.

Lovely, peaceful cabin

  • 5 of 5

Spent a weekend at Seal Cove in this lovely little bungalow. The location was just beautiful and was extrememly quiet and private during our weekend stay. A trio of seals spent hours watching us from their dock directly in front of the house, which was amazing. The property is very prettily landscaped with multiple places to sit outside and enjoy the birds chirping and the water and trees, and the cabin itself is comfortable and nicely appointed. Perfect for a weekend away from it all...
