Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Great view of Olympic Mountains and Victoria, British Columbia. Located in town just a few blocks North of the Olympic National Park Headquarters. It has a large fenced back yard with fruit trees as well as a covered patio. Port Angeles is a great Pacific Northwest town with easy access to Hurricane Ridge, the Hoh Rain Forest and the ferry to Victoria. This wonderful home is big enough to bring the whole family, with all the comforts of your home away from home.

About Virginia Southmayd

We are a married couple who have family in Port Angeles. We live in Alaska, but visit Port Angeles several times per year.

Virginia Southmayd purchased this house in 2005

Why Virginia Southmayd chose Olympic Peninsula

We bought this house in 2005 when we were living in Port Angeles. Circumstances took us to Alaska but we hope to live in this house when we retire. The house was built in 1947 by a famous Port Angeles builder and has had many upgrades since.

What makes this house unique

This home is located in town, so it has easy access to all conveniences of Port Angeles. It is less than a mile to multiple coffee shops, the library, the grocery store and the Olympic National Park. You can sit on the couch in the living room and look south at the Olympic Mountains or look north at Victoria and ships sailing through the Straits of Juan de Fuca.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I'm proud to say I'm the new manager. How excited I am to be working with the owner with our vision for this house. The photos definitely do not capture the beauty of everything this home has to offer. The view of the water from the living room, dining room and the kitchen made me want to see more immediately. We're taking one room at a time and will be posting new photos as we go. This is a rare find in that ALL THE FLOORS ARE HEATED. You'll be glad you stayed at our home called "North to Alaska."

Very close to restaurants. We rode bikes on the Olympic Discovery Trail and drove (cars) to Hurricane Ridge. It was wonderful!

Comfortable and spacious

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for one night with 2 girlfriends on a trip around the Olympic peninsula. The house is dated, but very clean and well cared for. Electronics are up to date. The kitchen is fairly well equipped. Rooms are spacious with plenty of comfortable seating in the common spaces. Virginia was very responsive and helpful. We appreciated being able to rent for a single night, although the high cleaning fee makes it less affordable per night than a longer term stay.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Virginia, the property manager, was very responsive and accommodating. The place has box with a code to get the key, which is great because we arrived super late.

The place itself was large and clean. The beds were comfortable, there were plenty of sheets, the kitchen and linen closet were stocked, and our group of 8 never ran out of hot water although we showered at slightly different times.

Overall, this is a great place to stay if you're looking to stay in Port Angeles. You can find places closer to Olympic NP if that's where you're going, but I think this place is a good compromise between distance to the NP and civilization (i.e., good places to eat).

Spacious and clean

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 adults, two teens and a child. The spacious living, dining, and bedrooms made the stay a joy. The kitchen is fully equipped and has its own dining area. We took advantage of the gas grill and the yard.

Exactly as described! Charming 1947 brick bungalow with awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

This well loved and well kept property was the perfect launching place for all of our adventures. Loved coming home to the coziness of well appointed bedrooms, an elegantly remolded master bath, and comfy living room with all the modern amenities after days spent swimming in Lake Crescent or hiking to local waterfalls. We had a lovely and relaxing stay. Property Manager, Virginia Southmayd, made everything easy and just right for our stay. Much appreciated! We will definitely be back! Sincerely, Tina Callahan

Port Angeles is in the heart of the Olympic Peninsula. Whether your interest is kayaking, wine tasting, antiquing, eating or just spending time on the beautiful beaches, Port Angeles has something for every traveler. Ride your bike along Discovery Trail, a waterfront trail that stretches from the west end of Port Angeles into Port Townsend. Taste locally grown food at the farmers markets. Enjoy the water view from Francis Street Park. Or, explore the Fine Arts Center, which features works by more than 500 Northwest artists.
