The Day Island Cottage is located in University Place WA, on Day Island. This relaxing seaside get away is the perfect place to stay for a great vacation.
Less than an hour drive from Seattle! When you cross the Day Island bridge you will feel transported to an oasis! Close to many activities yet seemingly removed from the fast paced world!
The view and the water are the highlights of the property. The Olympic Mountains are spectacular to view from the cottage. When sitting out by the water you can see the Tacoma Narrows Bridge and watch boats and sea life float by. The scenery seems to be always changing! You may even catch a glimpse of a seal, killer whale or a bald eagle!
The sunsets are unbelievable!
The fall and winter months are also beautiful here in the Puget Sound! Grab an umbrella and raincoat and take a stroll around the island and see if you can see the resident bald eagle in his nearby nest! Or, make a cup of tea and hunker down on the comfy couch and watch the storms come across the water from the huge picture window.
There are great places to drive to see the amazing fall colors and the ski slopes are only about 2 hours away!
Day Island Cottage is very close to several universities! The cottage is a great place to stay while visiting your college student! A short ten minute drive to the University of Puget Sound, about 15 minutes to the University of Washington - Tacoma Campus and about 20 minutes to Pacific Lutheran University. As parents of two 'out of area' college students, we know how important it is to have a great place to really relax and 'reconnect' as a family! Make a 'home cooked' meal and catch up at the dinner table while enjoying the views and the coziness of a home!

Hi My name is Walt. I have lived in the Puget Sound region since I was a kid. My family and I enjoy all that the Puget Sound has to offer.
I chose to buy this house because the view is ever changing with shipping activities, wildlife, and pleasure crafts: sailboats, ski boats, kayaks, speedboats, and jet skis. This rental has views of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, Olympic Mt. Range and the Puget Sound.
Some unique benefits you will enjoy while staying here are seeing the occasional bald eagle and pods of whales. It is minutes away from the world renown Chamber Bay Golf Course; Home to the 2010 US Open.
Other Activities: boating, health/beauty spa, miniature golf, shopping, kayaking, basketball court, shelling, wildlife viewing
