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.

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.

Great views, but beach experience, great location close to all you need for a fun, relaxing weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Good use of limited space in the home. Great spot for relaxing, watching the sunrise over coffee, fun fire pit and hot tub. Fun things to visit nearby. Good times.

Has it all!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Allyn! The house is perfectly situated walking distance to Allyn, which is an adorable town. We LOVED the beach- swimming, kayaking, and just watching the tide change drastically! The hot tub was the perfect evening activity and the kitchen was fully stocked. Thank you for a great stay!

Home had everything needed for a comfortable stay and relaxing weekend.

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and had all the things needed to cook meals together. We had a great time canoing, hot tubbing, and relaxing by the outdoor fire pit. The home is right on the water and also in town so you can walk to the store and restaurants. When the tide goes out you can explore the beach, there were sand dollars, oysters and crabs. We had a memorable time and I would recommend staying here.

The property location was outstanding. The amnities were not as advertised

  • 3 of 5

Upon arrival there was a note left by the owner listing issues with the property. One of the kayaks was damaged and unavailable. The Hot Tub was damaged and we were told to not turn on the jets (basically a large outdoor bathtub). Door off cabinet and table broken. Owner advised he would be back to take care of issues as they occured during last rental. Kayak was "repaired" the Friday before we were leaving. The BBQ caught fire the first time we used it and was only put out after dousing the unit with baking soda. It did not flare up - it actually caught fire!! One of the guests spent an hour and a half then cleaning and degreasing the unit so we could use it. The refrigerator began acting up the first night. It shut off necessitating removal of our food into two coolers. It started up again during the night but was leaking water on the floor. We advised the owner of this and he came to the house thanked us for cleaning the BBQ, asked if we wanted to use the Kayak, ah yes, the teenagers at the house sure did, said he would try to fix it. Brought ice bags for our stuff. Said he was told the issue was something freezes up and the fridge shuts off until it defrosts. We kept moving stuff in and out to kerp perishables fresh and chilled. Also we paid for three dogs and advised him we had only two dogs with us as the third pup passed away prior to our arrival.

We feel very strongly that we should be compensated for not just the dog fee, but for the lack of use of the advertised ksyak, hot tub and inconvenience of the refrigerator and BBQ issues.

Owner's Response: As an owner I try to respond as quickly as possible to issues my guests have. Summer is a time of a lot of "wear and tear" on a vacation rental. As soon as I heard of the refrigerator issue I brought ice to my guests and researched the problem. The solution to the problem was allowing the frig to defrost to remove ice buildup. It has been working fine since that was accomplished. Unfortunately the one year old kayaks get dragged across rocks rather than carried and one had the keel worn through and had to be repaired with a fiberglass patch. Indeed a cupboard door was off and I repaired it while my guests were there. I counted 3-dogs. My house keepers usually clean the one year old BBQ and we ask guests to clean it as they use it too. As can be seen by our rating most guests are extremely happy with our home. We will do our best to maintain a five star rating.

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.
