About Deanne and Yaponcha English

My husband and I met on the island of Guam, but we are both from the Bay Area. He was a tennis pro at a 5 star hotel and I was in the tourist industry. I cut my foot while swimming in the hotel pool, he bandaged me up and the rest is history! We moved to the Pacific Northwest because I went to college here and still had some close friends in Seattle. We also both loved the rugged beauty of this area and wanted to raise our son here. It was a wise move. Yaponcha found work in the construction supply industry, I became a paraeducator in Special Education and our son, Atlee, grew and thrived.

Deanne and Yaponcha English purchased this house in 2001

Why Deanne and Yaponcha English chose Puget Sound South

Why? I would have to say because we have been blessed with this bliss and we want to share it! Breezy was my mother and we inherited this 2 acre slice of heaven from her and my father. Shoulders drop and grins abound upon arriving at the Hideaway! As you drive down the driveway the woods open up and you see the pool, the house with it's lovely gardens, South Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. The photos can not convey that feeling of joy everyone gets upon arrival!

What makes this house unique

As far as we know Breezy Hideaway is the only South Puget Sound waterfront property with a pool for rent. But the uniqueness of Breezy Hideaway goes so much further than a mere swimming pool! This property host 6 levels of manicured gardens and patios, each with cozy spots to relax. Many guests say the photos do not do it justice, although we had them done professionally, they don't convey the overwhelming magnificence of all the vistas above Puget Sound. Sunsets at Breezy's, everyday, every season are breathtaking and almost spiritual! We didn't choose this property, it chose us and everyday we thank Breezy and Dad for this gift!

Spend a summer night in the cabana and wake up to the glory or the Puget Sound, with the snow capped Olympics in the distance!

It was our cozy getaway!

  • 5 of 5

It was just like its name, Breezy. We stayed for two nights and really enjoyed the property. Quick getaway from Seattle to a serene spot where we can enjoy ocean views, canoeing, smores or just chilling with a book. Deanne and her husband were so wonderful and she had everything we needed in the place! Highly recommend :)

Very nice, updated, lower level private rental with full amenities and patio

  • 5 of 5

The rental provided updated, private space and a large patio leading down to additional landings and the water. Well appointed property and very quiet. We really enjoyed walking along the shore and there is a canoe and 2 kayaks available for exploring. Owner was onsite - she was very nice and did not intrude at all. We would definitely stay here again. Great choice for our anniversary.

Amazing Owners Make Amazing Trips

  • 5 of 5

I really want to start by thanking Deanne for her amazing hospitality. She makes everyone feel so welcome and cared for.

My small family arrived on a beautiful Friday afternoon in February. We made it just in time to have a quick walk down to the beach and then back to the apartment in time to watch a beautiful sunset from the comforts of our bed. Unfortunately, my wife became very ill and we had to leave for home in the middle of our first night. Deanne was very accommodating and caring! We are very thankful and hopeful we will get to come back and try again under better circumstances in the future! It's so nice to find a owner that cares so much for the guests experience. Something you don't get many places these days!

Great getaway from the city! Well appointed, beautiful and the hosts were terrific. Great views too!

  • 5 of 5

The property is very comfortable and well and tastefully appointed. I love to cook and I had everything I needed in the kitchen and the barbeque. Even though it is a downstairs apartment, the space is filled with light and views to the Olympics. It felt very private. The layout is great and it feels cozy yet spacious.

The only thing that I think would be a great addition but not neccasary is a hot tub with a view. Even one of the fire-heated tubs would be great. This would be really great for winter stays.

Deanne and Yaponcha were very responsive with any questions I had. I can't wait to stay again in the summer when I can really appreciate the yard and the beach and the pool.

Cozy, pleasant, and well kept

  • 5 of 5

We arrived a little after dark. The road was a little difficult to spot coming in, but with help from GPS, we managed to locate it. The accommodation itself is very clean and well kept; it was a fine place to watch rain over Puget Sound while we stayed in and played board games. The "s'mores" kit our hosts provided us with was very appreciated. I wish we could have stayed longer; I think it would have been a splendid place to make meals with friends and/or family.

No matter your lifestyle this comfortable home has activities to suit your needs. You can spend your days relaxing by the pool, digging fresh (and delicious) clams at the beach, exploring of the several local coves and nature sanctuaries, or enjoying the city life of the neighboring towns. Hop a ferry for Seattle and your within walking distance of Safeco Field for a Mariners game, Century Link to see the Sea Hawks play your favorite team,Pike Place Market and all of downtown.

While beach combing, go Northinto the beautiful Dutchers Cove, which is easily accessible at low tide on foot or high tide by kayak or canoe. The Haley property is a state park located about a 1/4 mile South of the rental. This area has trails, a long beach with oysters and clams, and a bird sanctuary in the cove. The Haley Property is only accessible by foot or boat, so it almost always has low foot traffic and can be the perfect place for a relaxing day.

You can enjoy the local farmers markets and beautiful state parks only minutes drive from the home. Penrose Park, Joemma Beach Park, and Vaughn Bay offer great beach combing, miles of trails for hiking and biking.

For those who wish to go out into the cities, Gig Harbor has a bustling uptown with several new boutiques and a state of the art new movie theater. Fine dining can be found in both uptown and downtown Gig Harbor, with food to fit any taste. Downtown Gig Harbor is a very walkable town with art shops, several parks, and occasional outdoor festivities and concerts.

Farther West along Highway 16, Tacoma carries its own attractions. We love the Museum of Glass, which is part of Tacoma's Museum District. It is also home to great restaurants, including some of our personal favorites, Asado and The Pacific Grill. Experience the local attractions of Tacoma, i.e. Chambers Bay (home of the 2015 US Open)and the Point Defiance Zoo. Park at the Amtrack station and ride to Seattle for a Sea Hawk game, watch the Seattle Sounders or the Mariners!

Of course, Seattle itself must be mentioned. Only an hour drive or ferry from Breezy Hideaway, it harbors all the excitement of any large city around the nation. It is home to the world famous Pike Place Market, as well as a very exciting downtown with it's fine dining, concerts and plays at the Paramount, the Neptune or the Moore theaters. Ride the Monorail, the trolley or a horse draw carriage if your don't feel like waking.
