About Diane Carter
Mark and Diane are Seattle natives and high school sweethearts who love sharing their vacation homes with guests. The Beach Barn is our latest project, purchased in Aug 2017 and lovingly remodeled with comfort and relaxation in mind. We started in the vacation rental business in 2008 with a property on Puget Sound in Shelton, WA (VRBO#150033) that is now run by Diane's sister. Next we purchased a condo in Anaheim, CA (VRBO#329422) across the street from Disneyland that has been a successful vacation rental since 2010. Then we bought a brand new mountain home in Roslyn, WA (VRBO#1151157) that has been a successful vacation rental since 2012. In 2015 we purchased a fixer upper in Renton, WA which we remodeled and is our cozy primary residence near family. Real estate is our passion and we can't wait to have you as our guest.

Why Diane Carter chose Allyn-Grapeview
We have been searching for years for the perfect Puget Sound getaway and fell in love with the location and setting of this home. Allyn, WA is a quaint beach side town 5 minutes away from our place. The property is low bank salt waterfront, bulkhead with 7 stairs, so access to the water and the beach filled with clams and oysters is a breeze. Adjacent to the property is the Port of Grapeview boat launch and the Fair Harbor Marina. We don't own a boat yet, but plan on it in the future! The water in front of our home is somewhat protected as it faces east toward Treasure Island, a small island in Case Inlet. It's about a 1 hour paddle around Treasure Island. The waters in front of our property are a "no wake" zone so any motor boats or jet ski's will be travelling slowly and quietly which is such a nice bonus. The home was built in 1964 and was nicely maintained but with original decor. The layout was great, so we just updated everything and embraced the gambrel roof (barn shaped roof), added some barn like features and The Beach Barn was born!
What makes this House unique
The home features 2 huge decks, 1 is covered, and a fairly flat grass lawn all facing the water. We love outdoor living so this home felt like the perfect fit for us. The home is removed from major highways so very limited traffic noise. The adjacent boat launch is an added bonus in our opinion. We have met so many nice people and it can be very entertaining to watch.

Perfect house with a view!
Thank you Diane and Mark for sharing the Beach Barn! We had a wonderful time and the house was better than the pictures. We’ve stayed in quite a few vacation rentals and your home was by far the most comfortable. It lacked for nothing. Lots of thick towels, totally equipped kitchen for the chef, comfortable beds (three bedrooms -two kings and three twins) with nice linens and wonderful outdoor spaces with great views of Case Inlet and views from all the large windows. Perfect location for boating and kayaking. There is a marina with boat launch next door or you can put your kayak in from the private’s beach in front of home. This house served as a great base for sightseeing the area. We explored Hood Canal and took a day trip to the picturesque town of Poulsbo. Many more places in the South Puget Sound area to explore. We hope to return soon!
A Restful Long Weekend
This property was the perfect mix of relaxation and activity! We enjoyed the many aspects of this wonderful VRBO from morning yoga on the grass, to kayaking; from barbecuing and eating on the peaceful deck to grabbing a bite in town. Thank you for a wonderful get-away!
OUTSTANDING HOME AND LOCATION
The house was beautifully decorated and very clean. the view was great and the location was peaceful and relaxing. The deck and the balcony were wonderful. I've rented a few places before online and this was the best experience.
Great place to stay at. Enjoy the view and water. Fun for kids. Thanks
All around perfection!
We would definitely stay there next year. Instructions were concise and clear, floor plan did meet our family needs, house was clean and neat, and location was amazing.
Everything was fantastic. Just as described. Would definitely stay there again.
