Rhodendrons and more. Get in touch with nature while sitting on the front porch (10x12 feet ) or the rear deck (12x20 )feet or look out any window. Regardless of the season this is all about relaxing be it outdoors or snuggled in front of the gas fireplace.
Hartstene Pointe has a lot to offer.: The Pointe has 3.5 miles of private beach, sheltered picnic areas, tennis courts, basketball, club house, pool and jacuzzi. There are numerous trails to hike or just stroll along the beach.
The Barmons enjoyed the serenity of the Harstine Pointe environment for years and hope you will too. In fact, Harry loves Harstine Island so much that he was on the Board of Directors and head of the Architectural Control Committee of the Hartstene Pointe community at its beginning. He also personally poured the concrete on the original fire station, supervised volunteers and framed the structure which was later converted into the fitness gym.
Harry & Sue Barmon purchased this house in 2008
Harry designed and built Barmon's Vacation Home what it is today. Harry and a small crew had worked tirelessly weekend after weekend to construct the foundation, framing, siding, stone work and finish on the house. The hardwood moldings were made and finished on site. Harry paid close attention to detail when designing this house for form and function. You are safe from snow or tree falling while in Barmon's vacation home as the engineered structure was designed for shear and wind resistance to withstand such a blow.
Much of what you see inside the house is attributed to Sue's gifted talent of interior decorating. The interior design is an expression of Sue's endeavor to create a relaxing and inviting setting to blend the interior with the forest surroundings. Sue's careful eye and design skills can be seen through out the house right down to the door bell bear paw. Whether they were on vacation or out shopping, Sue's amazing ability to think of everything tied all of the decorating elements together before the house was finish being built. Her incredible attention to detail makes this home show room ready and worthy of a magazine spread.
As you walk around the house, you'll notice the stylish, professionally framed art, black and white photography. Talent runs in the Barmon's family, as these photos were taken by their 14 year old daughter, Lauren. Also, in the bathrooms, the high end custom tile work was done by the Barmon's talented nephew, Travis. Landscaping of native plants was also professionally done by David Barmon's landscape and design company which specializes in native plants.
As you can see, the Barmons are dedicated in making this wonderful vacation home as though you would want your home to be. The Barmons have enjoyed this home for years and want to share it with you.
Our home is equipped to provide all of the comforts that you might expect from the finest of vacation rentals. Set in tall native Douglas Fir, Cedar and Hemlock the home was designed to keep touch with its surroundings. Whether sitting in front of the fireplace looking out through the expansive wall of windows enjoying a passing storm or kicked back at the community pool or at the beach on a sunny day this is the place to relax regardless of the weather. We strive to make your vacation a memorable experience where you can relax with friends and family or share a private getaway for two.

I came here with my out of town family and we had a great time! The house was beautiful, comfortable, and well stocked with supplies. We had a great time combing the beach, biking around the island (they have bikes there), and sight seeing off the Island. We could all fit around the table and we ate like it was Thanksgiving and played games and laughing until the moon came up! It was charming, the family was a delight to rent from, everything was so easy! There were even two living rooms so we could play games while the grandparents watched movies and napped on the down stairs couch :) I DEFINITELY recommend the Barmon's Vacation home for any occasion and especially the holidays or family visits. My family came from NY and they loved everything about our vacation and staying at the Barmon's was the highlight! Knowing the weather can be less than predictable in the great NW, I wanted to add that even in the rain storm, we were cozy inside with plenty to do, we went to the beach and watched the storm roll in, then dried off in front of the fireplace and had hot cocoa and tea!
I wish there were more stars than 5. I also wish we had more time to stay. This is by far the best kept, best stocked home. The pictures don't do it justice. The communities/ammenities were great. There were over4 different beach areas to choose from, all very well maintained. This doesnt feel like a rental, it feels like you are staying at a friends house. When we drove through the gate it felt as if we were in a different state all together. The houses are built around the forest and island. Nature is all around you. We saw deer, racoons, squirells and every kind of bird imaginable. The house is beautiful, all the needed amenities, and plenty of space. We had 4 adults and 6 kids and had more than enough room. Harry really went all out on this "Home". Thank you Harry so very much for this great expericence, we will see you again in the summer!
The extra living space was great for our family. The kids could sleep downstairs while the adults played games upstairs. The short walk to the beach was great for shell collecting and strolls. Thanks for sharing your home!
We will come back to this beautiful home. There were only three of us over the Thanksgiving holiday yet we manage to take advantage of almost all of the spaces. The media room is exceptional.
We had a bit of a rough start. There wasn't any Welcome package in the mail ahead of time but the owner was available to reassure us that the house was ready and where we would find the key. Unfortunately, the gal who sets the house up for renters didn't get the memo that we were coming which is why the Welcome package was never sent. The owner was very nice and was able to talk me through and we were able to get into the house.
We turned on the heat, made our beds and by the time we returned from visiting with family down the road, the house was warm and comfy.
We have stayed in several other homes in the same community and we put this one on top of the list. We hope to stay there again!!
We enjoyed our stay and look forward to another one
We really enjoyed our time in this home. It is tucked away in a forest of trees with trails down to the beaches. The neighborhood was calm, quiet, and peaceful. It was perfect for bonding with our children college age down to 2nd grade.
Our favorite parts of the home:
-We have 8 people in our family and we loved that we could fit all of us on the theater style chairs upstairs in the media area (which is a very large room). We watched shows together and also had evening family discussions there.
- The kitchen and dining room accommodated our family well. The kitchen was well equipped.
-We really enjoyed the large windows especially in the living area and the master bedroom.
-It's very clean and well maintained.
-There are lots of books, videos, and games for the whole family
-calm and quiet, but friendly and family oriented
-If you like the feeling of being tucked in the trees, this is the place for you.
-There are trails down to the beaches, lots of sand dollars and other fun beach combing on the beach. The north beach is more fun and populated, but there is another beach that is expansive, quiet, and good beach combing
-The clubhouse: playground, large swimming pool, checker, chess, billiards, library
-It's beautiful and Jarrell Cove State Park is a short drive away from this home. We enjoyed exploring the trails, docks, and beaches at this park.
-It is an island, but you don't need a ferry. There are a few close by small grocery stores, but if you need to stock up for the week, Walmart is 30 minutes away.
Off the island:
-We did the "Staircase" hike (It was gorgeous) by Cushman lake and also booked a kayak tour for our group with Sarah at Blue Horizon Paddlesports.
On the last day of our stay, our 7 year old daughter said, "I want to stay here for 6 more weeks!"
Our family of 7 fully enjoyed the week we spent here. The house is stocked with a fabulous kitchen (including spices). The property is quiet serene and safe. The beach was lovely with virtually no people. The club house kept us all entertained with a pool, hot tub and game tables(pool , ping pong). The house itself is large and has plenty of space for all. There isn"t a thing they have missed. Thank you for a fabulous time and we will be back .
