About Harry & Sue Barmon
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
Why Harry & Sue Barmon chose Shelton
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.

Private and clean. Very fun for kids!
Quiet and Peaceful
Very nice house, comfortably cool and a nice beach you can walk down to and see the sea lions playing. Washer and dryer were nice to have there in the house and the gated community was nice too. People were very friendly there.
Lovely, clean, and comfortable
The house is as advertised...and probably better. Loved all of the games, toys and movies tucked in there as we had one rainy day and two 7-year-olds to keep entertained. Also, we made use of the clubhouse, play structure, beaches, bikes and hiking trails on better weather days. On our rainy evening, we made a fire and s’mores at a covered picnic structure by the beach.
We really enjoyed our time at this house and at Hatstene Pointe. We will return.
Excellent experience in every way
We needed a place to stay on short notice and the owners were so helpful in accommodating our visit. We enjoyed so much wanted to extend our stay and again owners were responsive right away. We can highly recommend the beautiful and spacious home located in a gorgeous wooded area like a park. Our experience is 100% positive and we plan to book again.
Gorgeous House - Beautiful Island
The house is absolutely gorgeous. Perfect for two couples and a child.
Only one set of keys and one keycard made it logistically difficult for us to do different things but we managed. No instructions in the house caused a little bit of tension with the office staff. Microwave did not work and no instructions on how to operate the fireplace. Lots of trying to figure things out.
I would definitely stay here again but would make sure that I got clearer instructions on coming and going. A map of Harstene Pointe would definitely help as would brochures of things to do in the area.
There should have been an welcome letter sent automatically from Homeaway that details all of the above plus much more. Good to know that there is a failure in the system. There is always the option of a phone call to me and I will respond within 12 hours maximum.
Very comfortable, nice house, very well equipped kitchen. Lots of space for a big family
We felt very safe and comfortable in the community . It was fun exploring the island, with a map it would be faster .
Nice playgrounds with clean restrooms on all sides of the island. We used a boat couple of times to have fun on the water,
Our stay was in the end of July and temperatures were very high, so cool house felt so nice after a long hike .
We enjoyed all that space , everyone had own corner. Lots of books, too bad that we did not have time for them. Lots of toys for kids. Kitchen was very accommodating for all our needs. We had enjoyed our short but sweet vacation at Barnon”s house.
