Available as well are thick sleeping pads for extra guests and / or for camping. Just outside your door is a table that seats 4 to 6 for meals made on a gas grill or in your state of the art kitchen. The patio is large with lounge chairs and several seating areas. A beautiful private pathway that leads down to your hideaway from the parking area. A lushly landscaped pebbled path meanders down to the beach and a fire pit on the bulkhead. There are many private nooks for relaxing, or to sleep under to stars. Enjoy a fire in the pit, roast marshmallows or swing in the hammock and watch the sun set over the water. Walk for miles on Case Inlet's most pristine beach, dig clams and oysters or go for a row in 1 of our kayaks or the canoe. Buying a shellfish licence is a good idea, no one has been stopped yet but you never know! Sleep in the unit or on the bulkhead in the cabana, May through Sept, weather permitting! Pitch a tent above the beach or on the lawn!

Take a ferry or the shuttle to Seattle and play for the day or cheer on your team!

Owners Yaponcha and Deanne are available for any needs or questions you may have. The Hideaway is the lower level of the home. It has been structurally remodeled as to be completely separate from the main house.

The rental will feature art from local artists and friends.

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!

Wonderful Memories Created - magical

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults had no problem sharing this space. Very well equipped with a large covered patio just extended the indoor living area. Also had our 4 year old Grandson with us who at times needed his space too!! :)

The hosts are so very kind and genuine and have your best interest at heart. Don't shy away because they reside upstairs. They really give you the space you need but are there to please all the same. The pool was clean and heated just right...but we had more fun in the kayaks, clam digging at the nearby Haley property (public park), finding cool sea creatures, and skipping rocks at night watching the bioluminescence! Although Gig Harbor is just minutes away, we opted to eat and play in most of the time. The two State parks close by were fun for some easy hiking.

I can't recommend this place enough. I felt completely refreshed and got our fill of western sunsets and our wonderful Sound. Thanks to the English family for sharing your wonderful home with us!!

Owner's Response: Karen and Michael, What a wonderful review! Having 3 generations of your family here, obviously enjoying everything Breezy has to offer, was a pleasure for us as well!

Field

  • 2 of 5

Beautiful place. Was really too far to drive to Seattle. I guess we weren't thinking about that because it was so pretty. We didn't know how bad the traffic was going to be each day. I am sure if we lived there and knew where we were it would be great. We lost a half a day in travel each day.

Spectacular escape from the city

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Breezy Hideaway was relaxing and gorgeous. The pictures don't really do it justice - it's a very large space that is decorated beautifully and incredibly well-appointed. It has everything from fresh spices and any cooking paraphernalia you could want to razors and toothpaste. Although it was unusually warm while we were there, the air conditioning kept up. We slept like rocks in the soft cotton sheets in the new pillow-top bed. The cabana is to die for. It's a queen sized comfortable memory foam bed overlooking the cove complete with cozy sheets and blankets. The view is gorgeous and the sunsets are wonderful. We basically lived on the large patio watching eagles and hummingbirds and drinking in the silence. Finally, the hosts were fantastic. Welcoming, warm, helpful, and respectful of our privacy. They are completely focused on you enjoying your vacation in their little slice of heaven. Oh, and the pool was great! We've already recommended Breezy Hideaway to friends and family. It is a wonderful home away from home.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 10 days and it was phenomenal. We were looking for a quiet place with an amazing view, so that we could relax, and get away from the hustle and bustle of our normal lives. This property exceeded our expectations in every way. The owners were very friendly, and my wife and I could not have been more relaxed upon checking out. We spent the vast majority of our time in the cabana, reading by the water. I highly recommend this property to anyone that wants a quiet escape with fantastic views. Thanks for such an amazing vacation!

Owner's Response: Sean, When we started Breezy Hideaway, we were excited to share our magical space. I don't think either of us grasped the depth of serenity and bliss our guests would leave with! Wow, beautiful review! Thank you! Deanne & Yaponcha

Pacific Northwest Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying at your property. The views were wonderful (despite the haze from the forest fires). Deanne was gracious and very helpful. We loved gathering sand dollars along the beach, canoeing, kayaking, floating in the pool, playing ball with Ruckus and sleeping in the cabana. It was a great way to start our vacation in Washington and Oregon.

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.
