About Kristin and Michael Dolen

We moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1994 for a more relaxed lifestyle in a beautiful setting. Our children were small at the time and it was a great family experience. We initially bought a home on acreage in the nearby town of Hansville and enjoyed our many animals while raising our kids. We relocated to Kingston, the next town over, to experience a more central location within walking distance to everything a small town has to offer.

Kristin and Michael Dolen purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Kristin and Michael Dolen chose Kingston

Our location is perfect! We love being able to walk to the movies, restaurants, the bakery, or the ferry. We walk on the ferry and in 20 minutes are across the sound in the lovely seaside town of Edmonds. Numerous shops, restaurants, pubs, and another farmers market are just a few of our favorite things to do. We are minutes from great mountain biking trails and hikes which we both love to enjoy.

What makes this apartment unique

The Unique thing about our property is the location. From the outside, we fell in love with the cape cod style and very central accessible location. Once your inside, you feel like you are miles away from the hustle and bustle. We can hear music in the park and events across the street. We can walk to the farmer's market down the street and also enjoy the concerts on Saturday nights at the marina. There are several coffee shops, pubs, and a wine bar in town. In December bundle up and enjoy the very festive Christmas light display with a walk down to the Marina.

This is, by far, the best rental we’ve reserved! The owners went above and beyond any expectation we might have. The clear directions and labels helped immensely. The quiet neighborhood and comfortable bed made us not want to leave. The kitchen and bathroom were equipped with everything we could have wanted. Thank you!

Everything I imagined and more!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect jump off point for a salmon derby.

Boated over from Edmonds, moored at Kingston Marina.

Less than 10 min walk from marina/ferry/shops/restaurants.

Very clean, quiet, convenient, and cozy.

I spent most of my stay on the water but relished the quiet and comfort of the place. A very rejuvenating solo weekend!

Owners were very accommodating and provided prompt answers to my inquiries and requests all while non-intrusive during my stay, I saw them a total of zero times.

I highly recommend!

Thank you Kristen and Michael!

  • 5 of 5

It was great. Clean, comfy, had everything we could have needed.

Easy access, short walk to town. Easy access to all the other areas around, like Poulsbo, Port Angeles, Sequim. We will definitely come back if our travels take us to Washington again.
