Great family vacation stay

  • 5 of 5

We joined with 2 of our children and family (8 of us) for a 5 night stay at the childhood home of the owner. The views out the windows were as wonderful as the weather. The 2 year old and 9 year old spent lots of time gathering and throwing rocks back into the water, collecting shells and venturing into the berry patch to find delicious end of the season blueberries. The kitchen was well appointed with a huge refrigerator, the gas grill had a fresh propane tank at the ready and there was plenty of extra pillows and blankets for the comfortable beds. The kids had a huge play area off the kitchen while we cooked and looked out over the water from the upholstered window seats. Off site, we loved the amazing Sehmel Homestead park, just 5 minutes away for the over-the-top play structures. We went there to view the solar eclipse so kids could play while we waited. This is a must do if you have children, want to play tennis or pickleball, or watch soccer or baseball teams. We also went to Point Defiance Zoo which one of our Seattle kids said is better than the Woodland Park Zoo. The animals were upfront and so easy to track. My husband and I had a lovely dinner at Anthony's overlooking the harbor and Mt Ranier the night before our family arrived.

The only downsides we felt were trying to coordinate our meals and toddler nap time with the tide schedule. We did not realize how far out the tide went (football field length?) and not being able to walk out in the muck. Obviously these is nothing that can be done about this and we did manage to get in some float tubing. Also we would have appreciated increased quantity and updated seating for casual indoor conversation. But these are minor inconveniences compared to the great memories we made at your waterfront home. Thanks, Charlie.

Photos do not do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

It was a lot nicer than the photos showed. There were 7 of us: grandparents, three sisters, two grandkids. Plenty of room to spread out: great kitchen to all work getting meals together. One thing we didn't understand is that there are two floors: the bottom floor has the twin beds and full bed with one full bathroom. A bit musty.

We really lucked out with great weather. Bought oysters at Minterbrook Oyster Farm and had fun barbequing them and eating them raw. Secluded and quiet. Gig Harbor is a short drive away. Definitely walk McCornick Forest tralis...packed a picnic for lunch. Ate at Il Lucano's one night......delicious. Definitely would stay there again.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week long stay at Charlie's home. Can not rave enough about how beautiful this waterfront property is. We had a mini family reunion, including grandparents and children and everyone was comfortable and had a great time exploring the property and the surrounding area. Close to town while still feeling secluded. Charlie was great about responding quickly to any questions we had. Would love to stay here again.

Southern Puget Sound Invitational Kayaking tour

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable home, lovely view. Great dock with easy water access by foot or kayak but not by powerboat due to 14' tide change and shallow depth.

Fantastic opportunity for kayakers. Had three very interesting and good days of paddling from this location, in three different directions.

Well-equipped house, comfortable beds, high quality linens. Good wifi and entertainment system.

We would definitely return to this location, and recommend it to friends and family.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed and wanted during our stay and would definitely revisit in the future. Gorgeous view from the back deck and wonderful private beach. It was a very enjoyable experience for our whole family and our two dogs.

As Advertised - Great Family Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights: my husband and I, two sons and their wives, two grandchildren (20 and 15 years) and four dogs between us. We celebrated my birthday with a visit for the day from a long-time friend, two of her adult children, and a grandson. Plenty of entertaining space; the dining room table had adequate room for us twelve! The open area - dining/living room/kitchen/family room and large glass windows onto the open yard and Henderson Bay gave us space and privacy. The owner said this is his childhood home, and although it's now overgrown with plantings (must be gorgeous when everything is in bloom), there is still a creek feeding into the bay, shells on the beach at low tide, and at high tide I even kayaked for the first time! My only suggestion is for a queen or king-sized bed downstairs in one of the bedrooms, rather than a double, which these days is small for 2 people.
