Family adventure

  • 5 of 5
We meet our adult kids here and totally enjoyed this location. It's a little remote being at the end of the island, but the house is equipped with everything you might need. Even boots for clam digging!
We enjoyed the rock crab we caught, exploring the island in the many kayaks that steve let us use, and the outdoor grill and patio area with views of the beautiful sunsets.
Steve pays attention to details in this well furnished and decorated cabin. We weren't disappointed and would chose this cabin again.

Absolute Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Return visitor and it was better than the last time. We decided this time to get supplies on the first day and not leave for the entire stay. What a taste of Heaven. The solitude was unimaginable and we miss it already. Making plans for next year and extending the stay for two weeks. Thanks Steve for sharing your cabin.

Far Exceeds Expectations

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing stay on Harstine Island. Huge thank you to Steve for sharing with us. A lot of love has gone into this cabin. Pictures do not do the cabin or the location justice. We felt away from it all with all the comforts of home. The cabin is well finished from top to bottom, inside and out. The views are nothing short of stunning and the property is designed to soak them in. The giant windows along the entire length of the cabin and huge wrap around deck show off all that Puget Sound has to offer.
There were plenty of activities to keep us busy in the cabin, out on the beach and around the area. We took full advantage of the kayaks/canoe, telescope, hiking opportunities, clamming, games, videos and stereo. For those that feel the need to stay connected, the wi-fi is there for you too.
The cabin was well stocked with all the necessities. All the appliances, cookware, condiments and spices you need are there. Steve was prompt with responses and left clear instructions from beginning to end. The action log showed his attentiveness to guest requests and needs of the cabin.
Our stay exceeded all expectations! We could not have made a better decision for our vacation this summer.

Perfect seclusion on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5
I live in Wyoming and to say there is a lack of vegetation, water, and people would be an understatement. When my family (wife, two kids ages 3 and 10) flew into Seattle, it felt like stepping into an alien world of wondrous trees, beautiful landscapes, and vast oceanic views. The drive to the cabin was amazing and, perhaps, a bit claustrophobic with trees on both sides of the road within inches of one another. Upon arrival to the cabin by 10:00 pm, we were surprised to see how heavily forested the road was. Word of warning, the drive to the actual cabin is VERY steep and can be difficult getting your car back up the driveway (but we managed just fine in a rented Chevy Malibu). By the next morning and throughout our week long stay, we were blown away with the beauty of the forest, the awe inspiring views of the Puget Sound, and the quiet solitude of the cabin. The cabin has everything you would ever need for a week long vacation and is within a half hour from major grocery stores and restaurants. The private beach is filled with clams, oysters, sea dollars, and crabs for beach combing on low tide, but bring hard soled shoes as the beach is all rock and barnacles. There is a lovely hammock right by the cabin and thousands of blackberries growing wildly right in front of the cabin! There is also a firepit, canoes, a barbeque, and a community pool (the two times we went no one else was there) just a short walk up the driveway. The best times we had on this vacation were looking at the sunsets from the cabin and spending time with loved ones in this secluded location. We would love to go back and cannot speak highly enough about our vacation and the amenities provided. Highly recommended!

Great Get-Away Cabin

  • 5 of 5
We chose this property for its proximity to the water and beautiful views and it exceeded our expectations! The cabin was comfortably furnished with well-stocked cooking supplies, towels & linens, film library, and outstanding, ever-changing views. We had the best fun wading in knee-deep water at low tide and seeing starfish, all kinds of crabs and other critters, beach combing, and watching clam water spouts as the tide went out! Wear water shoes or old sneakers to walk on the beach or to wade. If you use the kayaks or canoe, be wary of the very strong tidal currents.

wonderfully remote setting - dog lovers paradise

  • 5 of 5
One of the things we loved about this cabin is the cleanliness of it and no funky smells! I was worried about smells as it is a dog property and we have stayed before in places and it smelled. Here there is laminate/hardwood throughout the home, including the bedrooms (great!!) and I think that makes a huge difference. As well as it being clean, because of the new kitchen it was a lovely environment inside, with board games to keep us occupied when we were tired. The setting of this cabin is amazing, but what you can't see is how far back you are set back from the road, it's like a mini forest - my dog loved it. We never saw another person on the immediate beach (one when we walked in the distance with his boat) for the 4 days we were there, so my dog had a blast. I have videos where it's so quiet all you can hear is tap tap of my dogs nails on the pebbles.

I recommend stocking up from the yellow looking ranch home from the outside on the right side of the main road leading to the island 20-25 mins away from cabin) they sell milk, fresh veg, very upmarket lovely - opened about a year. There is a nice deli/bakery for sandwiches further up on the left side. We only left the island once to get grocieries.


The pool is right across the road from the property. There was a canoe and 2 individual kayaks on property. The island is unusual as it still is largely undeveloped with a working forest taking up most of the room.

We will be going back as we live less than a couple of hours away and it's so peaceful - truly a getaway from it all, and the space for the dog both on and off the beach is so rare.

Worth noting (although didn't cause us any major problems) that the driveway is gravel and steep if you have a lot of stuff in the back, it does have concrete paths at the immediate steep bit at the house. To get onto the beach you walk along a 2 foot wide retaining wall to get to the steps. It is very peebly, and some parts quite sharp with barnicles etc, my medium size english cocker spaniel was fine, but maybe booties for small dogs?

Although anyone can walk along the beach, to get onto it, it seems there is no public access nearby which is good if you rent as it cuts down on the people. No one seemed to be in the adjoining properties when we were there (great)

As it's south to south/east facing the sunsets were amazing and the sun streams into the deck and living area, there is glare blinds to cut down on the heat in the room.

LOVED IT!
