About David Afflerbach

Tried and true lovers of the Northwest. We built the house in 1996 as a personal vacation property not knowing our jobs would take us out of state. We now live in Seal Beach CA. We love boating, camping, hiking, seafood, friends and family. We live vicariously through the comments our guests leave behind. We feel blessed to own this fabulous house and are happy to share it with you.

David Afflerbach purchased this house in 1996

Why David Afflerbach chose Washington

David's family heritage is based in Port Townsend where his mother grew up. This waterfront property was homesteaded by the family over 100 years ago, There are 8 homes all along the beachfront all owned by members of the family. This property has a warmth about it. Once you walk through the front door and look out the expansive windows to the world beyond, you too will feel it.

What makes this house unique

Fully equipped rental. We pride ourselves on making our guests feel comfortable and at home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

David and Kim,

We just wanted to thank you for sharing your wonderful place. Our family had a great vacation there. The view is amazing and as my mom would have said "Good for the Soul". I was so appreciative of how clean and well stocked your place was. It really felt like home for a week. The area was beautiful and we enjoyed it all. One last thing we love to play family games and were so excited you had some of our favorites. Thank you..

House on the Water

  • 5 of 5

This house was great. The kitchen had all the items needed. We had Dungeness crab one night and found plenty of crab crackers to enjoy this fresh crab. The fire pit down by the water was great for evening gatherings looking at the stars and enjoying an adult beverage. During the day, down by the water you could see Mount Rainier in the distance. The instant hot water system made sure we never ran out of hot water. It was very nice.

Peaceful getaway near Port Townsend

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay over Easter weekend in the Oak Bay Getaway. The kitchen was stocked with all the essential tools we needed and we loved the open concept kitchen/dining area/living room. That way we could all spend time together even while someone was cooking and others were reading. The views were spectacular and we enjoyed the view from the upstairs bedroom. The only thing we didn't like was the open upper bedroom. It was clearly evident in the pictures of the house so it's not like we didn't know. However, in the evenings when it got dark outside, it did feel a bit exhibitionist to have the whole bedroom open to the full windows, and the sun woke us early every morning. But we somewhat expected that because the pictures don't hide that fact so I still gave the house 5 stars. It was close to Port Townsend and all the activities that we had planned for the weekend. The closet full of games and puzzles was definitely enjoyed! We would definitely come stay here again!

Charming, secluded vacation home ideal for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A very well maintained house with a lot of privacy. Serene views from the deck. QFC and some restaurants were close by. They even had toys for kids which kept our twins engaged for most of the time we were there.

Beautiful view, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

The house was on a bay and had big windows to enjoy the beautiful views. We really enjoyed all the games they had available for use. We were very comfortable and easily cooked meals in the fully stocked kitchen.

Soul Soother

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a typical cool, windy, rainy Pacific NW evening, and Oak Bay stood warm and welcoming. Loved how the motion sensing lights lit up our arrival, and made negotiating the lock box and entry to the home so easy. Once inside, it was an easy flip of a switch and turn of the thermostat, and we had a cozy fire ready to help us relax with evening cocktails.

We knew from the listing that there were water views, but as it was dark we couldn't really tell what we were going to see. The next morning was amazing - tendrils of fog and mist, seagulls, Indian Island in the distance and the beautiful bay. We could just feel the stress melt away. It just got better during our entire stay.

The house is warm and comforting, much less sterile than some VRBO properties, and fully equipped in the kitchen and with plenty of books, games, and brochures for local attractions. We mostly hung out around the house, but ventured out for a delicious lunch at the Port Ludlow Resort, took a "windshield tour" of Ft. Worden and Ft. Townsend, and explored Indian Island.

If you go, be sure to read the little book "Hadlock Hill" telling the stories about the town came into being through pretty much the efforts of one family during the early part of the 20th century.

David emailed the evening of our arrival to make sure everything was satisfactory, and once again during our stay. We appreciated the attentiveness, and the fact that he chose to email rather than call to avoid being intrusive.

We're hoping to return!
