A second informal waterfront dining area is off the kitchen and is ideal for a morning cup, warm baked goods and reading while taking in the view from the window seats. The kitchen displays its coastal charm with a rustic butchers block, and wood burning stove, commercial grade Vulcan range, and sub-zero refrigerator. Nestled within the island is an ice maker and at the sink a boiling water tap; perfectly set for inspired chilled libations or a morning cup.

The deck takes full advantage of the Hood Canal and mountain views, is adjoined by a hot tub and overlooks the manicured lawn and flowering hedges. A charming walking path romantically winds down to a private beach known for its flourishing sea life, stunning vistas and sand dollars galore.

Gorgeous location, commodious quarters, terrific host

  • 5 of 5

The wedding of our son and his girlfriend brought together 10 members of our two families for nearly a week; the Hansville house was an exceptional fit for our needs. The bride and groom had the elegant master suite on the top floor and the other four couples each had their own space. The chef's kitchen accommodated a real professional chef who catered the wedding. The magical moment itself occurred on the beach, down a short path from the house, while the generous lawn allowed easy placement of tables and seating for more than 60, as well as a buffet and bar area. We spent many enjoyable hours soaking in the fabulous views of the Olympics to our west and Mt. Rainier to our east from the spacious deck. The home is comfortable, super clean, and thoughtfully decorated. Holly Smith was a delightful and helpful host. For nearly a year, she answered myriad questions about how to organize a wedding from afar and she connected us with reliable vendors and local providers. We were in heaven during our six days there and all 10 of us agreed that it would be the perfect location for another family get together. Thank you, Holly!

Holly's Hansville House

  • 5 of 5

Holly's house was a prefer fit for our family and friends of 11adults and 2 grands, ages from 4 to 75 years young (young at heart that is!). The clean and neat beautiful 4 and so bedrooms, and 3 and half bath rooms with 2 living rooms, 2 dinning rooms, spacious all equipped kitchen, has plenty of rooms for all desires concerned .... Not to mention the awesome 180 degree of Puget Sound view, sun deck, and beach front full of up to 7 inches big "Horse Clams" at -2.2 tide table (with proper fishing licenses)! Since we are the "Sea Hunt" gang, we managed to seek out where to crab and oyster hunt around the area as well!

Near by restaurants of Little Boston Bistro, and the unique Mossback at close by town of Kingston, gave us the yummy treat beyond our own sea hunt cooking at Holly's kitchen .... All delighted our taste buds with BIG happy faces!

That wonderful Albertson Market at Kingston provided us with all cooking ingredients we needed, and the "price is right" shorts and fried chicken, were the welcoming dishes among all, besides our sea hunt dishes, of cause!

Holly, your kindness, helpfulness, and thoughtfulness during our 6 nights stay, allowed us feel that much more pleasantly, joyously, and comfortable while we''re home away from home .... For that, we truly would like to thank you for allowing our memorable memories to happen and last, based on your awesome, magnificent, and ideal "Home" for us all!

To sum it all up by my daughter's texted to me on their way to Sea Tac, as they headed back to LA...... " Mom, we all had a great time, Delilah (7 years old) was so so sad to leave. And Jackson (4) kept crying in the car and at the air port because he was so sad we couldn't stay longer!" Hopefully, we'll be blessed to encounter such unique experience soon enough!

just wish anyone who were lucky enough to find and rent this beautiful, awesome Holly's House, will be able to capture what we had experienced all though our presence at this unique place!

Thank you sincerely again Holly! Truly appreciated all!

A special celebration with family in Hansville!

  • 5 of 5

Loved every minute of our stay. Holly was a most pleasant host. This is an ideal setting for a large family reunion or any large group who like to hang outside with eagles and osprey, take long beach walks, eat outdoors with views of the Hood Canal and start the day with coffe in the hottub while Mtn Rainier turns various shades of pink as the sun rises!

Magical wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

We got married on this property and used every inch of it over the span of three days. The view was breathtaking and was provided a stunning backdrop for our ceremony. The house was elegant, spacious, and provided a comfortable home base for the wedding party. The lawn and driveway accommodated a number of table and chair setups, our ceremony, a potluck, and we were even able to sneak away for pictures on the beach. It's an accessible location that feels incredibly remote and pristine for how close to civilization it is. Holly & Don are gracious, relaxed, friendly, fun, responsive hosts. They felt like family by the time we left! We're already plotting our next visit to this very special place. The whole experience was a joy.
