Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Come and visit Case Inlet, the most pristine waterway of South Puget Sound, and find our cozy waterfront cottage waiting to embrace you. The house is 1760 square feet, with four bedrooms and two baths. Oak floors and trim, beautiful rugs and photographs, tiled counter tops and a slate fireplace surround are some of the details that make the cottage an inviting place to spend your vacation. Relax in the hot tub and take in the beautiful view. There is a canoe as well as 2-kayaks, with PFDs and paddles, available for you to get out on the water. Wifi is available throughout the house.

Whimsical tropical fish, trellises and a view of the bay through an arched gate greet you upon entering the fenced property. The kitchen, dining room and living room are all open to the water view. A three level deck adds to the living space. The hot tub provides an outstanding view of Case Inlet. After a soak you can spend time on the comfortable chaise lounges or have lunch under the wisteria. Serve your guests at the outdoor bar. The beach is just twenty steps from the deck across the landscaped yard. Enjoy the fire pit and Adirondack chairs at waters edge.

Low tide reveals an immense beach for exploring, shell collecting and clam digging. The bay is great for water sports. It is warm enough in the summer, by Northwest standards, for a quick dip. Bring your power boat, kayaks, windsurfers, and fishing gear. Kayak rentals are available just down the beach. Three salmon runs bring fish right in front of the house in the fall. Watching the salmon jump and splash is an amazing site!

The kitchen is well stocked to meet your food preparation needs. The large island has four chairs for casual dining. A long counter top next to the dining room is perfect for a buffet setup. The dining room table can seat eight or more people and a second table can be set up for additional guests. The comfortable upholstered chairs, stained glass chandelier and the view provide a memorable setting for meals.

The living room has a wide-screen HDTV and DVD with surround sound. An upstairs bedroom has a TV with DVD/VCR, books, games, videos, two full size futon sofa beds and a double bed. Kids can claim this room while the adults are downstairs.

The Case Inlet view from the master bedroom on the second floor is exquisite. Curling up in the comfortable queen bed or on the love seat in this room, with a warm drink and a book will define the word 'vacation'! The third upstairs bedroom has a queen bed. The upstairs has some areas of low headroom. One bedroom with a queen bed is located on the main floor.

The house is located in the center of this small town and everything you might need is within a few minutes walk of your door. You can stroll down the beach to a waterfront restaurant and sports bar, and just a bit further to the Allyn Waterfront Park, play ground, pier and dock (moorage available). Buy an espresso, a meal or groceries and return to your private retreat.

Explorations by water from Allyn include Fair Harbor Marina, Stretch, and Treasure Islands, Pickering Passage, Olympia, and points beyond. The book South Puget Sound Afoot and Afloat is a great guide to the area. The 27-hole Lakeland Village Golf Course is minutes away. Other great courses including Trophy Lakes and Gold Mountain are within a thirty minute drive. The area is known for it's ATV trails, nearby lakes, and access to the Olympic Peninsula, Olympic National Park, and Hood Canal. Spectacular hiking trails in the Olympics are just an hour away. The cities of Belfair, Shelton, Gig Harbor and Bremerton are nearby for additional shopping and dining opportunities. Belfair has a large waterfront nature preserve with walking trails. You can drive to Seattle (90 minutes) via Tacoma or take a 20-mile drive to Bremerton and a spectacular, 55-minute ride on the Washington State Ferry System directly to downtown Seattle.

About Dave Curran

Dave Curran purchased this house in 2006

Why Dave Curran chose Puget Sound

I love South Puget Sound, the Allyn community where I have made dear friends, and the small town setting for my vacation rental. Case Inlet is gorgeous. In the summer the water warms up due to the shallow bay. There are three salmon runs in the Fall. Having a home on a beach was a dream come true. I love to come work on the house and enjoy the bay. The water view from our hot tub and home is exquisite!

What makes this house unique

Two nearby wedding venues are the Allyn Waterfront Park Gazebo (.5 miles) and Fair Harbor (10-minutes). The location is halfway between Seattle and the Olympic National Park. Tacoma and Olympia are within an hour. Mt. Rainier National Park is a two hour drive. Many quality golf courses are within a half hours drive.

Nice beach, nice people but noise and hard futons made impossible to sleep!

  • 3 of 5

Though nice to be on the beach and have use of the kayak, canoe and hot tub the noise was hard to deal with. Constant 24 hours/day truck and car noise from St Hwy 3!! Three out of four bedrooms were on the highway side unable to sleep at night.

The beach was ideal and loved the tides roll in and out.

Just a thought. Every VRBO house I rented always includes a house cleaning fee. If I pay this fee then why am I stripping the beds taking out the garbage and generally cleaning up. When I have my housekeeper over, she does all that work.

Dave,

We had a great time! Suggestion get rid of the futons. No one wants to sleep on them, they are to hard? The house was great, so was the view?

Thanks for a great stay!

Wonderful location for a family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Allyn Beachfront Home ten months in advance in order to have a place to relax with family after our wedding. We were married on the 1st of July and spent the 3rd through the 9th at this well-appointed and conveniently-located home. We had between 7 and 12 people there depending on the day and it was a great base for driving to adventures or for sitting and chatting. We have family that live nearby and they came over to visit and just enjoy the view. Dave takes great care and there were many thoughtful and personal touches included with the home - fresh flowers, extra towels, beach towels, pillows, blankets, bedding, life jackets, dishes, silverware, books, restaurant recommendations, etc. Such great care and thought was put into this wonderful home, we would be delighted to stay here again and recommend it to friends. Note: taller folks might have some trouble with the low ceilings upstairs. Thank you, Dave, for helping us make wonderful new memories! Allison & Erik Rice & our family from Georgia, South Carolina & Michigan.

Loved the experience there, perfect weather perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Only suggestion that would be nice is to include the Tides table in the guestbook so we could plan our canoeing adventures ! It all worked out and we went on the canoe many times. Ample life jackets available for everyone. Overall a great experience and we would love to come back! The clean-up crew did arrive exactly on time BTW. We were all packed up, but letting two kids continue naps until they arrived, and sure enough, there we were, on the road at 11:10. Still glad we got 1/2 a nap in anyway.

Just as expected

Has everything we needed. Hot tub needed a little love but the owner and housekeeper were quick to respond and we got everything squared away. Great location.

Allyn Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

Very impressed with the location on the water with a great view. It had all the amenities a group of golf buddies could ask for; good location, hot tub, BBQ, beach pit and separate bedrooms for all four of us. It was a good value compared to hotel/motel lodging with the ability to cook and BBQ rather than going out.

Easy and thorough communication with the owner.
