Bill Gates has four vacation homes on Hood Canal (Google it!) but it's still a well-kept secret just 90 min. from Seattle (2 hrs. from Portland). Few places in the world offer such natural diversity with the OCEAN & MOUNTAINS - both in one location.

"A weekend trip always feels much longer. Time slows and nature rejuvenates."

'Giggle Fish' is your Beach Cabin + Guest Boathouse located in Hoodsport, WA, on Hood Canal. It's so close to the water you can fish from the living room. This property is unique because it sits on a corner lot with a natural, unbuildable beach (200') between you and the neighbor. Privacy is hard to find here where homes normally sit side-by-side.

The Boathouse is great for teens or if one couple desires privacy. No garage, park along Hwy 101 like the locals.

Newly Listed with VR365 Property Management which is run by our good friend, Derek, who is a true PRO at Customer Service.

Derek purchased this house in 2006

After 2 years of searching the PNW for a special beach town, we finally chose Hoodsport! A Hoodsport address was key because it's the only real 'town' with full amenities along the entire 60 mile stretch of Hood Canal (aside from Belfair at the far end). This home is just 2 minutes from the Hoodsport IGA Grocery Store which is extremely convenient (especially for wine and dessert at night!) We love the quick drive from Seattle & Portland -- literally two roads - I-5 to Hwy 101 -- and not being at the mercy of a ferry.

The West side of Hood Canal is an 'Outdoor Lover's Paradise' with endless Ocean & Mountain activities. Hoodsport is a charming, waterfront town with Restaurants, Pub, Gift Shops, 2 Liquor Stores, Winery, Gas, Coffee Shop, Ice Cream Shop, Public Dock, Arts & Crafts, Dive Shop, Massage, Salmon Hatchery, Bank, Library, Outfitters Store (w/licensing), Olympic Park Visitor's Center, Kayak Rentals & Whiskey Distillery (opening soon).

Giggle Fish is a 'One of a Kind' vacation property. The rare privacy makes it one of the best beach lots in Hoodsport. It's also one of the few with a lawn for kids and playing Bocce (provided). It's a perfectly-balanced getaway because you can adventure -- or RELAX and do nothing at all -- both while surrounded by the peace and serenity of nature.

FOR HIKERS - just up the hill is the Olympic National Park 'Staircase' entrance and many popular day hikes surround the home (all levels).

FOR SCUBA DIVERS - you can literally SEE world-famous 'Sund Rock' dive spot from the deck (See Photo) voted one of the world's top Wall Dives by 'Scuba Diving Magazine' and 'Octopus Hole' is just 1.5 miles North - both known for GIANT OCTOPUS & wolf eels

'So close to the water it feels like you're on the boat, but with all the comforts of home.'

We celebrated our grandson’s 4th birthday at Giggle Fish. We wanted a place that appealed to all of us—2 grandparents, two parents and two children, 1 and 4 years old, and would make a memorable occasion w/out too much stress. Wow, do we love your place and will definitely return.

The waterside location, with a fenced yard was a plus for our grandkids. Clever use of fencing material so the beautiful view was unobstructed and incredible; clear water 3 feet from your lawn, complete with abundant sea life.

We saw and photographed seals, waterfowl and an eagle.

Your beds are large and comfortable; views from the bedrooms are amazing.

We shucked and grilled fresh oysters.

I managed to finish a book, and still had time to “stroll” through the small town for coffee.

The surprise bonus was when our children arranged a massage for us at the boathouse room, complete with relaxing music and water view.

We will recommend your home, and be sharing many special occasions at Giggle fish.

BRAVO Giggle Fish!!!

Giggle Fish exceeded our expectations! Kayaking with my grandson was one of those "perfect life moments". It's very well decorated and I'm a sucker for big nice comfortable beds. Groceries and shops are prob a mile away and we appreciated that it was already stocked with condiments. An eagle came extremely close and saw lots of seal action. It's right there on the water, so lots of fun creatures to see. Our grandson stayed in the boathouse and liked having his own "beach pad". We plucked oysters from the beach followed by music by the firepit (nice bluetooth stereo). We'll definitely be back. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Reviewer Comments:
Loved our stay. We would highly recommend trying to resolve the low water pressure issue. We made it work but others may not be as tolerant. Beautiful home and location right on water. Would rent again.

Manager responded on 11/25/2013:
Thanks Sally for the returned visit. I'm happy to read you enjoyed your stay with us. For those who are reading this review the owners have just resolved the water pressure issue. VR 365 Derek

Map

Hood Canal isn't realllllllly a canal, but a glacier-formed fjord which carved 60 miles along The Olympic Mountains. The mountains skyrocket 7,000 feet straight up from Hood Canal, creating a majestic, breathtaking backdrop. The clear waters provide world-class salmon fishing, crabbing, clamming and shrimping and miles of pristine shoreline for kayakers, divers, beachcombers, boaters and lovers of nature.
