About the property

Guests are raving about our updated vacation home with lots of extras.

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. 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!

Our house has a brand new six person hot tub on the front deck. This is a beautiful new jacuzzi!

"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.

Well appointed private oasis!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a girlfriend for a mom's weekend away. The cottage is so nice! Very well appointed, they have everything there you could need, dishes, towels, bedding, books, speakers to plug in your device for music, kayaks, paddleboards, etc. Everything! The space is private, there is a nice hot tub and lounge chairs on the deck that we used morning and night. The community pool is very nice and big, lots of room to lay out in the sun, swim and relax. We will definitely come back again - maybe with our kids next time! ;)

You don't need to pack anything. This quiet getaway has it all.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed in this house for six nights and it was the perfect spot to enjoy Harstine island and other islands on the peninsula. The small details made it easy and relaxing. Everything we needed was there: life jackets, sand toys, a small ice chest, etc. The location in the community was also a plus because after spending the afternoon at the beach, we warmed up in the community pool before enjoying dinner at the house and playing games outside on the large porch. Thanks to the owners for their thoughtfulness and excellent communication. ~ Shannon

Wonderful amenities for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We came from out of state and were so pleased to find Harstine Island. The house was in great condition, with everything we needed. The property was so peaceful, yet very fun for the kids (they loved the pool and the rope swing by the lake). We were sad to leave!

Great home, lovely hot tub, beautiful island

  • 4 of 5

This is a comfortable home with nice sized living area, well stocked And good size kitchen. The bedrooms were very comfortable . The dining space is a little dark but with all to do on the island no one spent much time inside . Having two kayaks to use was wonderful as people could go out in pairs. The beaches in Harstene are beautiful and our kids kept busy with crabbing and kayaking.

Small complaint is that the clubhouse is not that close so we did not make use of the pool or ping pong table but the beach is truly right down the road . Overall a great rental.
