Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: Amelia grew up in Port Angeles and after meeting her husband in California they wanted to move back to this small town to raise their daughter and be close to grandparents. Our jobs have taken us back to California but, we hope to return to Port Angeles so are keeping Alder Street Retreat as a vacation rental and in the future as a retirement home for our family.

Why Port Angeles, WA, USA:
The waterview at Alder Street Retreat is impressive but, we really fell in love with the large, private backyard. We love to entertain and relax in our home and the flow from the kitchen to the backyard is so easy and convenient. Beyond the large backyard gate is the Sanctuary where you can pitch a tent or even bushwhack down into the ravine to explore. Behind the backyard fence is also a shortcut trail to Peninsula College, passed the blackberry bushes. Within a few minutes are trails behind Peninsula College into old growth forest and world-class birding. Walking to the Community Playhouse, the Fine Arts Center, our daughter's elementary school, and more, make this such a convenient location to get around without a car.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
1) HOME COOK'S DREAM KITCHEN AND EASE OF ENTERTAINING: In addition to its great location, Alder Street Retreat is equipped with a home chef's dream kitchen. Upstairs seamlessly flows into the backyard with courtyard doors from the living room, hallway, and master bedroom. 2) WATERVIEW WITH PROTECTION FROM NORTH FACING WINDS: The backyard faces south bringing lots of sun into private backyard entertaining and relaxing, while also enjoying the water view through the windows facing north and also while protected from the north facing wind. This wind protection is a unique benefit of Alder Street Retreat because many north facing waterview homes in Port Angeles have their patios facing north, which means wind, shade, and cold. There is a huge temperature difference between the front of the house versus this home's backyard. As you're shopping for vacation rentals in Port Angeles, keep this in mind!! It is one of the many unique benefits of Alder Street Retreat, which will make your stay so much more enjoyable and comfortable! 3) DOWNSTAIRS PRIVACY: The downstairs is equipped with a family room (large flat screen TV), full bath, bedroom, extra sleeping blankets, pillows etc, and entrance from the carport. Downstairs offers desired privacy for teenagers or when sharing with multiple families. 4) THE SANCTUARY: The private sanctuary, just behind the backyard, is a perfect spot for you to enjoy a picnic or bring a tent and enjoy your own private campsite!
