Living in many places around the world I settled in California in the early 2000's. But in 2007 I finally found a place to call home. Illahee, Washington is a unique area offering easy access to Seattle and the entire Pacific Northwest and Canada. Portland Oregon in 2.5 hours by car, Have even taken the Amtrak there and enjoyed that ride. Seattle is less than an hour by Ferry from Downtown Bremerton. Kitsap Mall and Illahee preserve just ads to the fantasy.

If there is a better place to Live, Relax and vacation all in the same area I have not found it.

I enjoy the Salt Water Puget Sound close to my front door, Mountain Rainier is great to look at and so much more...

Susan Williams purchased this house in 2007

The location is close enough to Seattle to enjoy Downtown but far enough away for peace and tranquility. The views in this location will satisfy just about everyone. The water, Mountain, Boaters, Dock, Seattle Ferry, Sea planes, greenery all in one quiet location is amazing.

This home allows us relaxation and rest we never though possible. We enjoy the long Seattle summers where there seems to be sunlight from as early as 6am to well pass 8pm into the evening. The winters bring a light snow that makes perfect postcards and the best place to spend your holidays. We enjoy this home through all seasons as am certain you will also.

The access to Seattle and Neighboring islands in perfect. Nearby Casino offers gaming to those so inclined. You will never forget the joy this place brings.

Trains & Ferry to Canada and Portland, Oregon less than 40 minutes away. Bring your Passport.

Good Location

  • 3 of 5
We rented this house for three weeks. We were visiting our daughter and two grandsons. This house was roomy with the one bedroom having twin beds for our grandsons. We had to make a Walmart run to equip the kitchen with a few more tools as we cooked a lot. The views are beautiful from the picture window. The location was great as we went to Seattle twice on the ferry. We also did the tour of the Turner Joy destroyer that's in the Bremerton harbor and took the kids to the Fountains water park in the harbor. We drove to Port Angeles, 1.5 hours and caught the ferry to Victoria BC for an overnight stay.
The biggest disappointment for this home is the road in front. It is a main thoroughfare for commuters and the traffic starts about 5am. If you sleep in the front bedroom it's noisy ( mattress needs to be replaced also, broken down) We had hoped for coffee outside on a deck in the AM to enjoy the view but no deck and road very noisy in morning.
Susan was easy to connect with and Jennifer is the local contact and she helped us with a couple issues during our stay.

Owner's Response: Any household issues are always just a phone call away 310-245-1610, with resolution following immediately.

The kitchen is well equipped, but we will take an inventory and see if there are any other items that would make cooking gourmet meals easier.

All Beds in the home are about 1 year old, and even though we never actually found a "broken down bed", we will replace it anyway. A phone call would have gotten a fresh bed there same day or next day at latest.

Illahee road serves out small community but is not the main road for the area and traffic throughout the day is best described as very light and almost non existent at night. Its a two lane 25 mph neighborhood road, But I can understand that for some ANY traffic is too much.

While we cannot change the small road out front, the Puget Sound View, Multiple Island view, Ferry view, Boater traffic view, Seaplane landings, Mountain Rainier view provide ample distraction.
While there are a few homes in the area that offers zero traffic with the exception of pulling into the driveway the $400+ per night prices makes this property well worth the stay.

While we do not have a deck and never described having a deck ,there are numerous seating areas outside and inside that make an ideal area for enjoying morning coffee.

I think anyone that researches the area and the homes that are available without question "Illahee Beach House" is a the best value period.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
This is a good place to stay, conveniently located to the places we wanted to visit. It is clean and well kept. The views of the water are dazzling! The owner and caretaker were both very helpful and responsive to our needs. The living/dining area are larger than the pics on the listing seemed to convey and attractive. The beds were comfortable, and the bath area was nice. Lots of hot water! We didn't cook while staying there, but the kitchen was stocked with everything necessary to make a meal,except food. We used the large capacity washer/dryer which was convenient. While there, we visited Port Townsend for a whale watch tour, Bremerton Harbor for the Naval Museum and Turner Joy, Fort Defiance Park and Zoo-there is also an historical town with reenactments and a go cart track. We spent some time at Illahee Park for fishing and beach combing and also fished off the dock in front of the house. We took the ferry into Seattle and went to the Aquarium and strolled along the pier area. The local people are friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay here. We would recommend it to others and return there ourselves.

Great alternative to staying in Seattle

  • 5 of 5
I wanted to take my family to Seattle, but dreaded the downtown parking and the high hotel cost to accommodate a big family. This house in Bremerton served our needs well. It was private and clean. The drive to the ferry was easy. Thanks!

Quiet, Pet Friendly Home with Great Location!

  • 4 of 5
My husband & I travelled to Puget Sound to look at areas to potentially relocate and wanted a nice, pet friendly place to stay as a base to travel from. We found this home inviting. Had a slight snafu trying to get in (the front lock box wasn't functioning), it was dusk and raining. Thankfully I had the managers' phone numbers in my phone already and they guided us to the back of the home where we were able to get in. The back porch light was not working (the manager was trying to arrange an electrician), but we bought a Mag Light at Costco and solved that problem. The view is amazing with the bay out the front window along with Mt. Rainer in the distance. We took many walks with our little dogs and enjoyed the area. Loved the location and quickly got into Bremerton, where we parked and walked on to the ferry for an hour ride into downtown Seattle and walked around Pike Place Market and had some yummy chowder at Ivar's right on the water. We also enjoyed a local Brewery - Silver City Brewery - up in Silverdale, just a few minutes away -- not to be missed for great food and good beer! We enjoyed the large soaking, jetted "tub with a view" and the home has the amenities needed to relax and enjoy. We never figured out the fireplace with a corded plug coming out of the front and no apparent place to plug in, but the heaters were more than adequate. Nice place and the price is reasonable. The queen bed in the back bedroom was surprisingly comfortable and that room was very quiet! The oversized photographs on the walls add a nice touch for someone who enjoys volunteer service.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed yourself, and apologize about the lockbox and light at the rear door. We installed a Brand new lockbox at the front door and motion lighting at the rear door. While we were there we also went ahead and put all brand new windows in all bedrooms to match the new windows throughout the rest of the house.

The Gas fireplace was brand new before your stay and was not plugged in. But that is sorted also. We aim to keep our prices affordable but at the same time expect your stay to be 100% functional.

You will the home even more inviting with the recent upgrades and we are offering you one night free stay anytime in the future that is unbooked.
Thanks

Stress relief at its Finest! Great location to tour KItsap and Jefferson counties!!

  • 5 of 5
Six fellow Motorcycle enthusiasts and myself decided to use the house as our de facto tour headquarters while on a month long tour of Kitsap and Jefferson County. The Garage was plenty big enough for our Bikes. The home is an older beach house so don't expect new construction and you will be ok. This was a concern of mine as I live in a brand new home and did not know what to expect, but was quite happy.

The location proved to me ideal for touring, just leaving the house and heading north proved to be a great ride as we set out to Kingston to catch the Ferry to Edmonds. We fished on the dock many nights.
The most relaxing was barbecuing in the yard, watching many a sailboat go by, we waved some boaters down and invited them to eat with us, we now have friends in the area.
We rarely tour the same area twice, but we might have to make an exception and return soon.

The Views of the Mountain and Sound are beyond description!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I normally stay at Oyster Bay Hotel when in the area, But wanted something different. I planned on using a friends runabout boat to Head to THE BOAT SHED a restaurant nearby that offers boat parking. Being able to dock the boat across the street from the house was awesome. I don't think I moved the car the entire weekend. The House proved comfortable and I enjoyed a couple of movies while relaxing. As I sat down to dinner, there were so many views options, eventually I pulled the pub table right in front of the picture window. We booked again for September even before we left. My young daughter enjoyed the board games and it was unplugged family time.
You will enjoy the place...
