Why diane kurzontkowski chose Puget Sound

we found these cottages and the location reminiscent of cape cod where we grew up - "sweep out" cottages, great for a romantic get-away or piling the whole family in. We love the location, warm in the summer protected from the northern winds, southwestern exposure for lovely sunsets. We like being able to walk 1 block to the movie theatre, bakery/deli, morning latte, 3 restaurants and a small grocery store. Our favorite activities include hiking and biking from the cottages.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottages are so close to Seattle, a 35 minute ferry ride, but a world apart. Step back in time to your own classic cottages!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were the first family to stay in this endearing home when it came on the rental market. The view of Puget Sound was phenomenal. While there we spotted a bald eagle, a seal, water fowl and dozens of small birds. The home is well equipped, allowing us to prepare most of our meals on-site to be enjoyed overlooking the waterfront. It was peaceful and quiet, with outstanding beds for a good night's sleep. It was conveniently located, a very short walk from an outstanding bakery and other little eateries. The location near Ft. Ward Park also gave us a great place to take morning walks. We would be happy to return for a visit. Next time we'll rent a kayak for paddling around the quiet cove.

Perfect Place for a Work Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just perfect for the four of us to get away from all the other things to do at home and focus in on this intense project. The beds were very comfortable and the sofa is almost the size of a twin bed and has the best view in the house. It was also great to sit around the living room and brainstorm but also take a mental break to watch the ferry come and go at the mouth of the bay where the cottage was situated. Great grocery shopping at the Town and Country Market and local dining were also big pluses. I would really love to come here for a vacation because working here was fantastic.

Owner's Response: You and your team were fantastic guests. We are so happy you were able to enjoy the views and comfort of the cottage while on your work trip. Also glad to hear you were able to take advantage of the local restaurants. We are really very lucky! Come back in the warmer months and you'll be treated to outside live music at the wine bar just down the street and time in the hammock at the beach ! -Diane

Really nice, serene property and owner couldn't be more gracious. Sweet little town steps away. No hesitation to make another reservation.

Great view!

  • 5 of 5

Great, well-equipped house - nicely furnished and outfitted for our family of four. The large lawn and beach access worked great for our kids, and we even saw otters!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay! Yes - the otters love to show off in front of the cottage! Look for bald eagles overhead next visit. They are regulars too :). Further out in the sound (by kayak and paddle board) you will see sea lions and last summer a gray whale visited the sound a few times, along with our local orca family - J-Pod. Never a dull moment here in the Pacific Northwest !

This is a beautiful setting and worked out really well for our annual New Year's family celebration

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable and happy with this property. The owners were so very helpful and welcoming. We were there during an extremely cold weather experience and the lovely white down comforters were a cozy treat. We biked some trails, walked some trails and sauntered into "town" which was literally steps away. The kids enjoyed playing football on the lovely grassy area and the VIEW is spectacular. We, being a family of 7 have almost out outgrown the sleeping arrangements since the grandchildren are surpassing us in height but I would highly recommend this lovely, cozy set of cottages to anyone. You will be mesmerized by the views from most every window and the porches are great for rocking and watching the ferries off in the distance while enjoying a hot cup of tea! The little shops are quaint and so much fun to browse. The bakery is to die for and the Farm store has the freshest milk, eggs and local goodies. The movie theater is from 1930's and although we didn't attend the showings, it was quite the attraction each day. Loved the restaurants as well. The owners of this piece of heaven are about the best I've rented from and I really urge others to try this peaceful retreat. I can't imagine a season this wouldn't be an awesome place to be. Thankful for the opportunity to begin 2017 at Pleasant Beach Cottages...Hope to make it back in the summer and enjoy a mid year get away. ( and a cinnamon roll from the bakery!!)

Beautiful beach home on the bay. Gorgeous views from the deck, hammock, porch or couch! Walk 1 block to: farm fresh food products at Hey Day Market, delicious bakery with fresh products by 7am., Beach Cafe patio for dinner with bay views and delicious small plates, This cottage is on the SW side of the island. There are many boats to watch: a ferry comes by every few hours, sailboats, kayaks. Nice beach walks when tide is out. Lovely stay with our daughter! 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, nice kitchen.
