Beautiful vacation home in Harstene Pointe! Perfect vacation spot for the family or a romantic getaway. Walk the trails and beach then soak in your private hot tub! Surrounded by trees with lots of sun and space to play in the front. A two minute walk and you are at the beach steps.

Inside everything is new, carpet, furniture, bedding. This is no rustic cabin yet still full of charm! Large living room with flat screen TV and tons of new movies, books and games. Our house also has WI-Fi, Neflix, Pandora etc on the two smart Tv's. One queen bed bedroom and bathroom on the main level. Two bedrooms upstairs one queen bed room and one bunkbed room full/twin with a trundle twin!

Lounge in the hammock under the sun, BBQ on the deck, walk down to the beach for a beach fire, it's all right there for you. Over two miles of walkable community beach, fire pits and covered gazebos with picnic tables and areas to clean your catch of the day! Don't forget the brand new private hot tub to soak in after a long day of biking, tennis, hiking the trails or beach combing. Take the kayaks out and you often see seal pop up to say hello. Even the occasional whale sighting off the Harstine beach! Private setting and great community amenities including a shared clubhouse, seasonal pool and spa, fitness center, trails, marina and picnic areas!

"We've stayed here twice now, once during the summer and once during the winter, both times fabulous!! It's gorgeously remodeled and modern with some charming rustic touches. We immediately felt at home. We had great family bonding times walking on the beach, paddle boarding and kayaking (in the summer), collecting sand dollars and roasting marshmallow in the fire pit by the beach, playing board games and just cuddling up with a book, good movie, or relaxing in the hot tub! Oh-and the kids loved seeing the deer! We even saw a mommy and two babies which was thrilling for my twins to see! We can't wait to go again! Thanks for making our get a away so wonderful!"

About Jenny and Eric Freeman

We vacationed at Harstene Pointe for the first time last year and fell in love with the island and especially this private community. It is everything we have looked for as we spent year after year looking for that special place to bring our kids or take off to on our own. It's beautiful, private with tons to do or the peace and quiet to do nothing at all. We guarantee you will want to come back!

What makes this house unique

We chose this home because it was updated, open and we loved the sunny lot. It is one of the few homes at the point that has a nice sunny front yard while still surrounded by trees. It is in an ideal location out the front door and across the street leads you to the beach trail yet you can also be at the pool in a short walk. Perfect for kids. We love the glass doors that separate the living room from the kitchen. We have made it a comfortable welcoming home to relax and enjoy this unique island.

Everything you need for an easy and great get-away

  • 5 of 5

This place has it all! You don't have to bring much with you except your clothes, bathing suits and food & drinks! They even supply basics in the kitchen like foil, ziplock bags, etc.. We didn't use everything but would come back to this cabin b/c they had 2 adult bicycles and 2 kid bicycles, kayaks & paddles & life jackets, beach towels and everything else you could need for the beach like chairs, grilling and picnicking stuff, clam digger, crab net, tennis rackets. Also had lots of games and books to enjoy. Just wished we had more time to enjoy all this cabin had to offer. Next time... Really, just show up! Easy to book and check-in too. And the hot tub was welcomed after walking the entire beach around the pointe. And oh the treasures we found beach combing! Thank you for a nice and relaxing and well-equipped vacation place.

What a relaxing time!

  • 5 of 5

Every room of the cabin is awesome. Loved the Keurig and the noiseless dishwasher, loved the hot tub, loved feeding the 3 tame deer that came within inches of us, lounged on the long couch in the livingroom. The beds were very comfortable. Loved the beach towels rolled up in the bathroom. Read a great book that was provided for the stay. Eyed the wine that was graciously left on the cute dining room table as a gift. Loved the kayaks (we actually went kayaking despite rain!). Loved how private the house was. Just had a great time! Thanks for making it so easy to stay there!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Originally from the south Puget Sound, we now live overseas.

This property provided the absolute perfect place for me to host a gathering of our local family and friends during our recent visit "home".

Comfortable, spacious, warm, and inviting.

Loved it!

More than Surprised!

  • 5 of 5

It was a family event and being in a home that felt warm and welcoming was more than we expected. We loved it! We swam both in the pool and Pacific, used the kayaks, played pool and ping pong, went bike riding, went fishing and enjoyed the hot tub at the house. Most of this could not have been done except for all the things the house was supplied with, like life jackets, bikes and fishing supplies. It was a very clean and well maintained house and property. I would definitely come back and encourage others to stay here.

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd year at the house and we truly enjoyed our long weekend at Harstine Island. Bbq's at the beach (bring the propane for the gas bbq!), tennis, fishing at the marina (bring your fishing gear), walks searching for dear, bike riding, multiple trips to the pool daily, soaking in the hot tub - our 4 & 6 year old boys had a great time.

We look forward to coming back next year and maybe getting around to trying the kayaks!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. As far a propane goes we always have a supply of propane for the BBQ. We even keep a spare right next to the BBQ for our quests convenience. We also supply an array of fishing poles, tackle and bait. It is really important to us that our guests have everything they could need on the island! If you return please don't hesitate to contact us if you need anything or if these things are not easily located. Thanks again! We hope you will return to Harstene Pointe.
