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!

In the summer walk up to the seasonal outdoor heated pool, hot tub and club house. Sip coffee on your spacious deck and you may have a deer walk right past you. 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.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great getaway. First time to this beautiful island. The cabin was nice and owners were really caring and accommodating. The beach was close to the cabin, which helped since we went with 3 little children. Our only disappointment was not being able to use the fireplace. We went in the winter and hoped to be able to warm up by the fireplace. However, it was not working at the time, out of propane. The jacuzzi was great and the home was well equipped. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us!

The house was clean, cozy, well appointed.

The only improvement I would suggest is that the hot tub was covered.

Beautiful, cozy, well-stocked house—wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend here, old friends reuniting with our small children. We explored the beaches, found crabs and sand dollars, gazed in awe at a family of deer that wandered right past the front porch, cooked meals together, made us of the pool and playground, and soaked in the hot tub staring up at the stars through the silhouettes of tall trees. One note: if traveling with kids, be aware the pool has some "quiet time" adults-only hours, so learn what they are before you show up with a pile of little kids in floaties! The home owners were communicative and responsive; the house is comfortable, clean, well-stocked, and a pleasure to spend time in; and the surrounding area is beautiful, with a short walk to the beach and views of Mount Rainier over the water! We definitely hope to go back again and recommend it to anyone.
