Hood Canal Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Please note that quotes from VRBO are NOT correct. Our price is lower than the quote you receive through the system. Please email us or call for correct pricing. Pebble Beach Place is a designer-inspired original bungalow carriage house situated on the hill above the main residence of a gorgeous classic South Shore 'Hood Canal Home'. With its own beautiful view of the canal, and surrounded by a cedar forest, this carriage house is a Bed and Breakfast style stay. With a part-time caretaker on sight, you will enjoy all the privacy of a vacation home, (as this property is completely separate from the main house), yet you will have access to concierge services and special requests if so desired.

Nestled alongside an old cedar forest with it’s stunning view of Hood Canal...

Pebble Beach Place Carriage House is the place to...

Take long walks in the woods, go antiquing, play golf or hike the incredible trails just 2 miles down the road. Visit some of the Northwest's finest wineries, fish from the dock or go boating. You can dig clams, pick oysters, kayak, fly fish, geo-cache or just curl up and read a good book.

Enjoy the gas fireplace while you look over your treasures from the beach, or map out your next hike. “Your place” comes fully furnished with a beautiful kitchen, pantry (with gourmet coffees and teas complementary!) And a washer and dryer. You can cook gourmet meals or dine out in one of the 5 star restaurants just 3 miles from pebble beach.

This carriage house is fully furnished with two bedrooms, each with a comfy queen bed and down accessories, private deck over-looking Hood Canal and the Olympic Mountains. A beautiful living room with full sofa sleeper, gas fireplace, luxurious spa robes, private meditation garden and deck, flat Screen Cable TV, DVD, CD & IPOD PLAYER with lot's of DVD's, CD's, books, games and many more extra's. Fire circle for 10, a shared large 30'x 40' deck where the hot tub with a great view of the water is. When we have guests we do not use the hot tub. We like our guests to know it's just their's when they are here. There is also an outdoor dining table, chaise lounges and seating for 6 at the smaller out door fire place during the high season. Our shared dock has table and chairs for your viewing pleasure and several seating areas around the property are also provided. Please note that this is a Carriage Style House (2nd floor style) with entrance stairs. If you require lodging without stairs we are sorry in advance that we cannot accommodate you. Also outdoor furniture items pictured (except for garden and dock) are removed during the low season. We will try to accommodate all special requests for outdoor arrangements!!

The house sits approximately 50ft. from the water-side.It is not right on the water but Pebble Beach Place offers the best of both worlds, with privacy from Highway 106, yet the use of our new beach deck, dock and private oyster beach for your enjoyment. Free phone (US only) and free wireless internet. Our guests can't believe what a value Pebble Beach Place is, voted 'Best Night's Sleep' by all our guests, you'll never want to leave!

Our little place is stocked to the max! If we don't have it, you just ask and we'll get it for you. I have a huge variety of teas, fresh coffee beans (French roast) along with a selection of other coffees to choose from. If there is something special you need also let me know.

We love it when our guests leave with a huge smile and a relaxed state of mind.

We have recently added a couple of new amenities intuitive sound healing and readings. Please let us know at least 3 days in advance. Also feel free to ask us at check in and if we have an opening, we will be happy to accommodate you.

Whether you’re looking for time with your love ones, or time for yourself, come and make our place “your place”. Stay for a night, a weekend or as long as you like. With so much majestic beauty surrounding you, you’ll be sure to return home a new person. Don’t wait, come and rejuvenate and experience the magic of what world travelers have coined the “Venice of the Northwest”, Union, WA. Isn’t it time you made some new memories?

Located on the beautiful Olympic peninsula come and enjoy Pebble Beach Place

About Linda Helms

Our custom carriage house was built for our family and friends. They were always encouraging us to 'let others' enjoy the unique beauty of our guest house and the surrounding property. We decided to take their advice and in March 09 we starting renting it out. Wow! The happiness and peace we see in the faces of our guests when they leave, makes us wonder why we didn't do this sooner! It has truly been an incredible experience, meeting people from all over the world, sharing their stories and getting to introduce (or reacquaint) them to this piece of paradise! 'Best Night's Sleep Ever' is the comment we hear most consistently. Don't forget to bring your camera or film gear, this is heaven for picture takers and directors!

Linda Helms purchased this bungalow in 2000

Why Linda Helms chose Hood Canal

Hood Canal is the only fjord in the lower 48 states and has been affectionately called the 'Venice of the Northwest.' Union was Washington State's first artist colony (by non-native Americans) started in the 1920's . The history and beauty of this area is unmatched! Rich in cultural abundance, this enchanting region is where my family chose to settle a half a century ago. When we were traveling in Europe we were amazed at the similarities between here and Switzerland particularity Lucerne, as well as areas in the Mediterranean. This little region of the Olympic Peninsula is steeped in Native American history and lore and offers a deeply mystical landscape and resonance. We feel fortunate to be able to offer our family treasure with others.

What makes this bungalow unique

Nestled amongst the old growth of an Olympic Mountain rainforest, our carriage house overlooks Hood Canal and offers access to an oyster beach loaded with shellfish. The view from the house and your own deck allows you to see a whole world of marine and fowl life as well as award winning sunsets. A 5- person hot tub offers a different view of the water as you gaze under the brilliant starry landscapes. A built in fire circle for 10, gives the whole family a place to gather around and tell stories. A private Zen garden complete with comfortable couch and chairs is yours to relax and meditate in. Fully furnished with beautiful designer beds and complete with gourmet coffees and teas you'll never want to leave!

Guestbook comments from the owner

As I have been booking this summer, I have been thinking of the two of you often! Thank you so much for the very kind review!! I enjoyed both of you so much,it feels like summer will not be the same without you! I'm really looking forward to meeting the kids, so you need to come back soon! I've kept your darling pink fishing pole in the hall closet for you! We now have a group of marine scientists at the Marina to show kids the sea life and the luminescence. You 2 are the greatest thanks again!!

Tranquil Weekend w/ Everything You Could Ask For!

  • 5 of 5

On our weekend stay, Linda stocked the house with everything we could think of- including the small things that we forgot like butter, milk, and eggs for breakfast. Her warm welcome and gracious hospitality made our weekend as relaxing as possible. The view is spectacular, the hot tub a must, and the bonfire a great place to end your evening. There are a variety of great hikes and places to rent kayaks nearby. We will definitely be returning, next time for longer so we can enjoy all that Hood Canal has to offer.

Holiday Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay at Pebble Beach over the Christmas holidays. Linda was a fantastic hostess and even had home-made Christmas goodies waiting for us when we arrived. She had the refrigerator stocked with breakfast items along with snack's on the table. What we appreciated about this rental was that small things, such as wineglasses, cooking pans, and basic food supplies (salt and pepper, olive oil, spices, etc..) were available for our use. The hot tub was fantastic. I highly recommend this place - we had a very enjoyable time during our stay.

Refreshing stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time stay at Pebble Beach in October 2015. The home had everything you needed and Linda stocked plenty of interesting and unique teas. It was a perfect location to explore nearby sites like Olympic National Park ( we hiked Staircase and Mt Ellinor). We also visited Olympia, Twanoh Park, the Theler Wetlands, and took the ferry from Bremerton to Seattle. It was so nice to come back to "home" in the evenings instead of a hotel. We loved WA and plan on returning soon!

Lovely, Restful, Inviting

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Pebble Beach Place is truly like being at a home away from home. Linda is so thoughtful in her preparations—from how the lovely deck is arranged to the spa robes to the welcome basket to the many loving touches throughout the property. It is so much easier to relax when surrounded by evidence of thoughtfulness! My husband, 14-year-old son, and I had a wonderful time taking a boat out on Hood Canal for a day (loved the harbor seals!) and spending another hot day on a boat on Lake Cushman. We returned home to Pebble Beach Place and lounged on the deck, grilled dinner and ate at the lovely deck table, retired inside to play board games (also provided by Linda), and topped it off with time in the hot tub. Linda was available but never once intrusive. I recommend Pebble Beach Place highly for the kind of vacation we may very well all need!

VERY Nice Place To Stay On Hood Canal

  • 5 of 5

The wife and I just spent the weekend here and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The cottage is very clean, tastefully decorated, and stocked with many unexpected and very thoughtful items. The views of Hood Canal are fantastic. Both from the cottage and the deck with the hot tub. The garden behind the cottage is very private and peaceful not to mention quite beautiful. Down the driveway and right across the street is the shellfish filled beach and a very nice floating dock with chairs and tables available. A great place to watch the sunset with a glass of wine. Thank you Linda for sharing your little piece of paradise with the rest of us. And thank you for your warm, gracious, and thoughtful hospitality.

A home away from home with so many comforts

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a home away from home. Right next to the beach and town (although you do really need a car) well furnished, secure and spacious. And thanks to the owners who were so helpful and attentive to our needs. It really helped to have a friendly face to welcome. Would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: We certainly loved having all of you and we're so happy you had a chance to enjoy all oysters! Come back again when the tides are a bit lower for the clams and you have more time to go to some of the great wineries in the area! Thanks again! Linda and Greg
