Overview

Puget Sound House Rental Photos and Description

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 countertops 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 are both a canoe and a double sit-on kayak,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, clam digging and collecting a few oysters to barbecue for dinner. 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 countertop 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, 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

Married, commercial photographer, sailor, hiker, runner, cyclist, mountain climber, father

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.

Comfortable "like home" beach house

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family of 9 had a very enjoyable weekend at the Allyn beach house. The beach house is comfy, roomy, with a lived-in feel and the benefits of a hot tub fronting the beach. Bring your sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses as the deck and beach are sunny all day long. There is a nice covered portion of the patio with some deck chairs if you want to hang out in the shade. The tide goes out a long way and the sand can get mucky the further out you walk. However, when the tide comes in it is perfect for a canoe ride. The upstairs rooms got a bit warm on the weekend we were there (90 degree weather!) Fans were available to make it comfortable to sleep. We had a great time!

Lovely Home and Beautiful View

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is well maintained and even in the winter the view was outstanding. Lots of options for activities (ferry to Seattle, hiking and beach walking). The owner was very responsive to a special request of ours and to any questions we had. We look forward to a return trip and bringing our kayaks!

Excellent house right on the water, convenient location, great amenities

  • 5 of 5

Great location, with access to town on the road side, but with a stunning, quiet, and expansive view of the beach on the water side. The house was just as described, clean, large, and comfortable. Bedding and towels were clean and plentiful. Kitchen was well stocked with necessary appliances, implements, plates, cups, etc. Customer service was excellent, with all questions answered promptly and security deposit refunded within a few days. I would stay again or recommend others to stay!

Lovely vacation home with great view

  • 5 of 5

It always feels short when you get to stay at a fantastic place like this. The home has spacious kitchen, cozy dining area with amazing view of the bay. We absolutely love the hammock facing the water. You've got to try dig the clams just below 3.0 tide level, they were delicious. And to burn all that calorie, take the canoe and kayak out to enjoy the serenity of the inlet. We were lucky to have companies such as jumping salmons and seals the whole time. The pier and boat launch, 2 minutes from the house, are perfect places to do some crabbing if you're bored with the clams. The owner, Dave, is a great guy who's very responsive to your email/ text/ call. Thank you for making our trip a wonderful memories !
