Enjoy zero bank beach access from a large lawn, with a spectacular full on view of Mount Rainier, along with all the additional splendors of Henderson Bay. If the idea of summer breezes, barbecues, roasting s'mores on a waterfront fire pit, and a beach where even the youngest can roam freely sounds heavenly, then you have found the perfect home for your vacation.
This getaway will place you at one of the greatest settings in the Pacific Northwest. The West side of Henderson bay features extensive sandy beaches at low tide. It is truly an amazing area! Take a long walk, throw a frisbee, build a sand castle, and do it in your bare feet; all while enjoying the fantastic bay and mountain view. Feel free to dig clams for a delicious appetizer. Watch the eagles soaring overhead. What truly makes the Morning Sun Beach House unique is the absolute seclusion with unspoiled waterfront to enjoy!
At the home site, you will love the large lawn that stretches from the decks to the bulkhead with it’s 2 foot drop down onto the beach. This is an area big enough for traditional fun like bocce ball, croquet, and other general uses.
That’s not all; lounge on the big wrap around deck, large enough for two full tables with plenty of chairs for your dining al fresco enjoyment. You will find a complimentary propane barbecue ready for your steaks, burgers and hot dogs. Walk around the deck to the side of the home where a convenient outdoor shower serves as a perfect salt water wash off station.
The main floor of the Morning Sun Beach House has a very open floorplan with the kitchen in the center of it all. The large L-shaped island with it’s glass cooktop, doubles as a wrap-around eating bar with plenty of room for gourmet food preparation. This kitchen is fully stocked with all the utensils and tools you could possibly need. Lots of dishes, glasses of all types, and silverware for all. Gather in the South family room to enjoy satellite TV, water views, and lots of seating. Move to the North family room where two walls of windows offer panoramic views and a pull-out sleeper sofa. You will also find a spacious dining room with ample seating. The main floor bathroom includes a washer and dryer, ironing board and iron, and a shower.
The second floor of the Morning Sun Beach House features 3 bedrooms with flex space for more sleeping arrangements. The master bedroom is a lovely space with wood paneled, vaulted beam ceilings. There is a bay window with seating, spectacular views of Henderson Bay, a king size bed, satellite TV, and a slider door to the huge upper level deck. Bedroom two has a queen size bed, along with sweeping views of the bay and access to the second level deck. Bedroom three is typically the young one’s favorite. It houses a bunk bed, full size on the bottom, twin up top. Additionally, the second story has a flex room with a futon for more sleeping space. This room also has access to the deck and beautiful views of the bay. Two bathrooms are also on this level, one with a shower stall, the other with a tub/shower combo. Shampoo, conditioner, and soap are provided.
Your vacation also includes all of the endless waterways available from this location. If you bring a boat, hop across the bay to Cuts Island or just cruise around beautiful Raft Island. Take a longer ride past Fox Island then shoot through the mile-long twin suspension Tacoma Narrows Bridges. From here you can pop-in to the quaint town of Gig Harbor where you can dock up for some great shopping, food, and drinks, or head over to the busy Tacoma waterfront with its many waterfront restaurants.
With this much relaxation, open space and natural beauty, your time at the Morning Sun Beach House will surely go by very quickly. The perfect home, perfect beach, perfect vacation!
