Guestbook comments from the owner
Copy of review from guest on the vacation rental site airbnb 3/8/14.
The owner was very communicative before my stay, promptly and thoroughly answering my questions. The beach house itself was far better than I had even imagined it, and the photos do not do it justice! The views from all three water-facing sides of the house were absolutely stunning, and during high tide I felt as if I were on my own private island. The views of the mountains were also tremendous, and I even though I visited during late-winter, when the sun was out, the water was deep and blue and mesmerizing. The house itself is tastefully decorated and fully equipped with everything you need for any kind of vacation, from relaxing to active, and the views from the master bedroom are like the cherry on the top of the cake. The location is also perfect: it feels very secluded, but you're a short drive from restaurants, supermarkets, etc. In short: The Union City Beach House at Hood Canal is a real gem, and I can't wait to go back!

We love the beauty of Hood Canal and the many recreational opportunities like fishing, boating, hiking and golfing. Even though the home is only 90 minutes from the Seattle area, you feel like you are a million miles away from the fast paced daily grind.
The Union City Beach house is the perfect vacation spot! This peaceful location is just a four minute walk to downtown Union, the Marina and boat launch, the Union Country Store and the 2 Margaritas Mexican Restaurant. The home is right over the water at high tide and at low tide you can venture hundreds of yards out onto the mudflats. This property has a unusually private setting compared to most other waterfront homes in the area.
