Port Ludlow House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms Waterfront with Mountain Views

Enjoy stunning, expansive views of the Hood Canal, Whidbey Island, and Foulweather Bluff at this beautiful, two-level, beachfront home. You have the option of renting just one of the two levels (each complete with a kitchen and bathroom) for smaller groups, or you can rent the entire home for a larger group of up to 11 people. For information about reserving only one level, please email the owner.

The upper level of the home has a master bedroom with deck access, a king-size bed, and an ensuite marble bathroom with a jetted tub and walk-in shower. There are two other bedrooms on this level, each with a queen-size bed and an adjoining bathroom with a shower. An open, fully equipped kitchen with Corian countertops, a dining room, two steps to a sunken living room, and a full-length deck complete this level.

The home’s lower level has two bedrooms, each with a queen-size bed. There is one bathroom with a shower. The kitchen is also fully equipped and the large living room has ground-level beach access.

From nearly every room in the home you can take in the incredible views of the water, mountains, and watch the wildlife. The beach is open for community use, as is the small boat launch next door. You can take leisurely walks through the neighborhood or on the beach. As you explore the area, be sure to stop by the small towns of Port Ludlow, Port Gamble, Kingston, and Chimacum. Also, the beautiful, Victorian tourist destination of Port Townsend is only a 35 minute drive away (22.2 miles), offering many entertainment, dining, and sight-seeing opportunities.

About Ann Templeton

My husband and I were born and raised in Bremerton, Washington. We purchased the land, designed, and built this house as a summer home. It was completed in 1994 and has been enjoyed by our family all these years.

Family Vacation in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We were so blessed to be able to find and stay at this home. I have rented several homes through this website and this home was by far the best rental we have stayed at. The home has everything you will need, very spacious, comfortable beds, and the view is just amazing. Looking forward to our next visit.

Fabulous view and comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

The view was gorgeous - beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The home was very spacious and comfortable for our family of 7 adults and 2 children. My family enjoyed exploring the rocks and pools on the beach each morning for shells and sea life. There were all kinds of sea stars, anemones, crabs, clams, oysters, etc. The fire pit was a favorite place in the evening for a beer and s'mores :). There are many historic attractions, antique stores, great restaurants and beautiful beaches nearby. Overall a very fun and relaxing vacation at this home.

Great Family Gateaway

  • 5 of 5

This home is breathtaking - the pictures didn't do it justice. When you walk in and see the floor to ceiling windows and all you see is water, it takes your breath away. We had a great family getaway - 3 generations and lots to do for all. We rented Kayak, played on the beach, collected shells, and made lots of memories. The home has everything you need and is in great condition. Ann was very responsive to every question/ need I had. I would highly recommend this wonderful place and we will definitely be back to make more memories!

Our group of 10 adults had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the house. The outdoor deck was outstanding we spent a lot of time outside. The house was very clean and well maintained.

Another Visit to This Amazing Location!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW!! This was our second year to visit this amazing location and it was just as wonderful as our first!! Our days were filled with walks on the beach to Paradise Bay, our little ones on the search for crabs along the way. They spent hours playing on the beach right in front of our home, building sand castles and exploring the tide pools. Kayak rides with Papa or one of the aunties were favorites as was being pulled back and forth in the water while riding in a kiddie pool. This is truly a vacation spot where you never want to leave!! Once we are unpacked, we stay put for the entire week!! We added a Treasure Hunt on the beach to our fun this year, complete with buried treasures where "X" marked the spot!! Sitting on the lovely deck never grows old...the porpoise families popping up and down, bring delight to all ages. Sunrises and sunsets are beyond gorgeous!! There soon became a friendly competition going on to see who could be the first one up to capture the sun rising. Watching the submarines being escorted in and out of the area is amazing. And, this visit even included a bald eagle soaring right out in beautiful!!

This the perfect home for a large family or group of people. The 5 bedrooms provides each of our daughters families to have their own space, which is important to us. And the 4 bathrooms makes end of the day baths/showers of the little ones go smoothly!! Our family has truly been blessed to enjoy this home and so thankful that Ann shares her beautiful home with others...she is a delight to work with and we are so excited to already have our visit next Summer on her calendar!!
