Charlie Allen purchased this house in 1949

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.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I stayed with our two dogs for his birthday. We had a birthday party for my husband with a few friends. The yard was great for playing games. The view and the ocean was so amazing to watch the tide come in and out. Watching the eagles flying by was great. House was very comfortable and had everything you need. We just want to thank the Allen's for a very memorable time. Had to leave a day early due to me slipping and falling crossing the river and breaking my wrist. But, still had the best time and can't wait to do it again. Falling had nothing to do with the surroundings, I have really bad balance due to injury to my feet as a child. Just wanted to make that clear. But, home is great for families, friends and pets. Thank you to the Allen's.

Private and great view

  • 5 of 5

We are from California and recently spent 10 days and enjoyed every minute. The home is very well stocked, everything you could want is provided. Very comfortable home with a huge private yard and the property is beautiful and so quite. We spent many days on the dock just taking it all in and even went clamming. Our 2 dogs were welcomed and enjoyed the water and yard. Found so many wonderful restaurants in Gig Harbor. We definitely hope to return

Private, comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this comfortable and private home with a great beach to explore as the tide comes in and goes out. All 5 of my siblings and myself gathered together here from all over the world to surprise my brother for his 50th birthday. We couldn't have found a better place. The grounds are beautiful and full of personal family touches. I would definitely return to this location again.
