Overview

Union House Rental Photos and Description

Unobstructed, magnificent views. Hood Canal at its finest!

The South Shore of Hood Canal and the small town of Union is an extraordinary location for a holiday getaway! Forbes Traveler named Union one of the twenty prettiest towns in America. You are invited to visit our comfortable, tastefully renovated waterfront beach home and experience the magic of Hood Canal! Less than two hours away from Seattle, the beach cabin is at water's edge and has just the right touches to make guests feel cozy and at home. A large, private deck overlooks awesome views of the famous Hood Canal 'Great Bend'. Guests can easily and safely step down from the deck to the beach and water using the heavy duty, aluminum, marine grade ladder. There is a propane and charcoal grill and plenty of seating for outdoor dining, basking and relaxing. The inviting one level floor plan has two bedrooms, one bath and can accommodate up to 5 guests. Each bedroom has a comfortable queen bed with quality linens and if needed, there is a twin sized 18' high air bed.

From the moment guests enter this South Shore beach home they are are greeted with SPECTACULAR, UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS of the snow-capped Olympic Mountains from the family room the kitchen, the master bedroom and of course, the deck. The PRIVATE BEACH has expansive tidelands for the kids to explore and sweet succulent pacific oysters and delectable Manila clams are easy to collect and do not get any fresher and tastier than this! A unique advantage to this vacation home is that there is a surprising amount of PRIVACY. This peaceful location is the ideal setting for a romantic retreat or to just rest, relax and rejuvenate!

The water is warm and great for kayaking, boating and numerous other water activities. The scenery is awe-inspiring and ever changing. Our guests delight in nature as seals, bald eagles, great blue heron, belted kingfisher and many other migratory birds and ducks abound. The abundant wildlife and phenomenal sunsets provide ample opportunity for captivating photography.

Resting on the shores of Hood Canal and surrounded by the Olympic Mountains, the home is at a CONVENIENT CENTRAL LOCATION. In the city of Union, you are just 2 miles from Alderbrook Resort and Spa. The beach home is a great spot for a bride and groom, their guests, or members of a wedding party to stay at leading up to the big day. The Union City Beach House is just a 4 minute walk away from the UNION COUNTRY STORE, the Hood Canal Marina (where you can rent kayaks), the Public Boat Launch, Union Paddle and Row and the 2 Margaritas Family Mexican Restaurant.

Besides the numerous water related activities, there are many things to do at Hood Canal, especially for the adventurous! Head to the Olympics and hike Mount Ellinor, Staircase or other more or less challenging trails nearby.

Why Kevin Ehlers, Owner chose Union

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.

What makes this house unique

Still available for a 2 night stay over New Years Eve. (Tuesday, Dec 30 - Thursday, Jan 1.)

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.

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!

This is our 4th time staying at this lovely beach house! We always look forward to a relaxing and rejuvenating weekend! The owner and caretaker make it a special stay with lots of extras, from the soaps, coffee and tea basket, very well stocked kitchen, fresh tomatoes and even a bouquet of flowers on the hearth from the beautiful outside garden! Thank You again and we will be back again soon!

We spent the weekend and enjoyed the time we spent there very much. The view is awesome and we loved cruising around on the beach. This house is very comfortable and could not be in a better location. We will definitely stay again!

Private Retreat

  • 5 of 5
The pictures shown don't do the beach house justice, we were blown away by the views. There was so much to see and do in the hood canal area but we ended up staying at the beach house a few days, out of our week, just to hang out and watch the tide from the deck. It was quiet and peaceful as the house is tucked away in a private spot. The union country store was a few minute walk away and it had everything you needed to cook at home. Hunter farms was about a 5 min drive and is worth the trip to stock up on local veggies too.
The property manager was so nice and full of information on what to do and see. All in all a fabulous week.

Oyster crew on beach 3 of 5 days

  • 3 of 5
This place is nice and scenic, no question. The place is well appointed and comfortable. The sunsets are amazing. We rented this place because of that. The downside was we had an oyster cosmonaut on the beach 3 out of 5 days on our beach with hammers beating on oysters from 5 am till 11 am. So the relaxing beautiful mornings was shared with music, hammers, and talking starting in the dark. You couldn't really enjoy ur morning coffee and you had no choice but to wake up super early because you couldn't sleep. Additionally, the hwy is about 15 feet behind the cabin so pls be careful if you have kids. There is really no green space on this property for any kids to play.


We paid for peace and quiet, tranquility. We paid full price but our mornings were sold to an oyster collection company. Feels a little like we got taken since the owner kept our money and the oyster money too. With the vacation season being so short in the Pacific Northwest, could they not have collected oysters next month?

Beautiful place but just make sure you don't have ur view and sleep time double booked.

Lastly the guy who owns the local grocery store is great and very helpful.

Owner's Response: I used poor judgment by letting the workers do their jobs on my beach when guests were visiting. That is a mistake that will not be made again! The workers were actually not harvesting oysters, they were doing beach maintenance, beautification and laying down clam seed. In the future, I will only allow commercial oyster or clam harvesting on my beach in the slow winter season when there are not guests. The beauty and especially the privacy is what makes this property special. The yard is fully fenced and the parking area is just off the street. Like most waterfront homes in the area, the front of the house sits only about 15 yards off the street. The back yard is a stretch of tidelands with fantastic views, wildlife and terrific sunsets.

Family vacation @ Hood Canal

  • 5 of 5
My husband our 2 children and myself came for a week mid July. We were pleasantly surprised by the view!. The pictures just can not do it justice. My 17 yr old daughter was especially impressed. Having stayed at Alderbrook Resort the last few years I was nervous to venture away but am thrilled we did so. The sunsets and marine watching was splendid. The property manager owns the Union Country store and everyone is so friendly. The home is well stocked. We did not want for anything during meal preparation and he furniture is clean and comfy. I envision a return trip to this lovely home right on the water.

Owner's Response: The trends in the travel industry are clear. More and more travelers are choosing the Vacation Rental Home experience over Hotels. Staying at a property like the Union City Beach House offers a fresher, more authentic, private and homey value proposition. We stock and furnish the Beach House with comfort and convenience in mind so that guests feel like they are at their very own "home away from home"!

Miss it already!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I truly enjoyed staying at this home. My husband, myself, and our two young children stayed here for three nights and we wished we could have stayed longer. The house was pretty, clean, and comfortable, and the views were amazing from the porch. It was truly a vacation we won't forget. Their property manager was also very kind and helped make our stay even easier. Union is a beautiful place with fantastic restaurants as well. Hope to go back some day!
