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.

ACCOMODATIONS

* Relax in the modern comfort of this 2-story home on 100' of waterfront built in 1999

* BEACH CABIN - 2 Bed & 1 Bath (1,000 sq. ft.)

Awake to breathtaking water views - and watch SEALS and BIRDS - all from the comfort of your warm, cozy bed. This fully fenced yard has a child safety gate to the beach. 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 Doremus / VR 365 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.'

BIRTHDAY WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
This house is adorable! The owners have thought of everything to make things enjoyable and easy. The location next to the beach is wonderful as many houses in the area do not have this. Kids and dog spent lots of time out there. We got perfect weather which was a plus and we would recommend this house to anyone!

MY PERFECT WEEKEND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My perfect weekend at Giggle Fish is all I can think about!
This is the second time we’ve stayed in this home. The first time we stayed in the main house and this time we went with another couple and their 2 kids so we decided to take the boat house for our room.
We arrived Friday night & settled in for the weekend. This house has all the comforts of home with some lovely touches. Extra hooks for all our jackets, everything we could possibly need in the kitchen, great sheets and bedding, new TV’s with cable and I know this sounds silly, but full size appliances are important to me – so I appreciate the full-size refrigerator, stove & washer/dryer.
Saturday morning I had to unfortunately catch up on some work emails and I knew from our first visit there would be free wi-fi. So I took my coffee and laptop out to the deck and enjoyed the view of the water while I took care of work. If you have to work on your weekend – this is the best way! The deck has two sides – the front part is uncovered and offers some really nice furniture (couch, chairs, table, loungers) and if it starts to get misty (it did once for about 10 minutes) you can just move to the covered side and still enjoy the view!
So the men went golfing (there’s a course about 20 minutes away) and us ladies and kids stuck around the house and as soon as it hit low tide we scrambled down to the shore to pick a bucket of oysters for dinner. This is my favorite part of the weekend on the canal. We picked oysters, turned over rocks and explored the crabs and sea-life. Our friends children (ages 2 and 4) had a blast! After hanging out on the beach for a few hours we headed back in for lunch and naps! For dinner we roasted up the oysters we picked on the very nice, very big BBQ.
Ok – now I have to tell you about this boat house. Since our friends have the two kids and it made sense for them to have the two bedrooms in the main house – so we stayed in the boat house – and oh-my-gosh – we LOVED it! Big, comfy bed, large windows, bathroom with shower, deck on the front and about 30 steps from the main house. It was the most perfect hide-away I could have ever imagined.
Sunday we lingered as long as we could – not wanting to go home. We took the kayaks out on the water, picked a few more oysters, relaxed on the deck…. I think about our friends and getting to share the weekend with them at Giggle Fish and what wonderful memories we made...how could I not share?

Reviewer Comments:
This was a family weekend and Giggle Fish was a great place to gather. The weather ranged from rain showers to blue skies and the views from Giggle Fish captured it all. The house was cozy and well decorated. The yard is fully fenced making it safe for our dog. The grocery store in Hoodsport is fully stocked. Make time to visit Owly's- a wonderful vintage store in Hoodsport. Hiked to Lena Lake, Giggle Fish is a perfect place to access trails and waterfalls. If you don't want to venture out, you can gather oysters and kayak right from the house. Totally relaxing weekend. This would be a five star rating if not for the traffic on 101 but that is true for all the houses along the water in this area.

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.
