About Janet Maddux(owner)

I grew up in Taiwan and my husband was from Indiana. We have lived many places since Joe worked for Fed-Ex before he retired. We traveled many places overseas and in America. Our son is with Coast Guard and we traveled to wherever he stationed. When our children were young, we did a lot of camping. Now, we really enjoy our home away from home. We enjoyed our new house very much. It is very peaceful, with spectacular view. Joe loves to just sit on the couch (used to be on the couch, now he sits in the sunroom)and ocean gaze. Or get up middle of the night sitting in the dark on the second floor looking for Aurora, or looking at the stars on a clear night. Spectacular sunset and sunrise on the beach, birds watch, marine lives, shipping lane, summer time w/cruise lines. There are always something going on on the beach, never a dull moment.

Janet Maddux(owner) purchased this house in 2013

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful home for us to spend Christmas this year! It's been such a treat for us, since being cramped in a one bedroom dan apartment in Seattle since August. It's the perfect size home compare to our five bedroom home back in Georgia not too big not too small the home is well stocked and you'll have thought about everything ahead of time. We felt completely at home here everything is so comfy. Our 6 year old son loved being able to spread his wings again for a few days. It was our best Christmas to date and we hope to return one day thank you and happy holidays!

Great time

  • 5 of 5

We three sibs in our 50s and 60s had a wonderful time in this homey-feeling house. It is on a dead-end street; so it felt secluded even though there were neighbors. The sun room 'made' the place for us. We spent most of our time there since it was either too windy or too cold to be outside, and being in the sun room was the next best thing to being outside. There are great views of Mt Baker; and we saw eagles, sea birds and otters. The beds are comfortable. Count on a couple of hours of cleaning if you aren't willing to forfeit your cleaning deposit. We'll be back if the occasion ever arises.

Thoughtful touches and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a wonderful vacation in this home. It is new construction and as many reviewers have noted, it is spotlessly cleaned and maintained. There are 2 balconies and 2 living areas, and though the house is not huge it was big enough for the teenagers to have a place to go upstairs and watch TV while the adults visited downstairs. The sundeck was a great idea, because even in the summer when we visited, hanging out on the balcony can get pretty chilly. We spent most of our visit sitting in the comfy furniture of the sundeck and watching for porpoises, river otters, seals and of course eagles. The owners have binoculars that we used a lot to check out the passing ships. I can't overstate the beautiful view of the Straits and Protection Island from here. The area is secluded, and though we are from the peninsula and anticipated going out to visit our familiar favorite places, we mostly just stuck close to our temporary home and enjoyed the house and the beach.

I have stayed in enough rentals to say that often they are stocked with cheap stuff that isn't very enjoyable to cook with, so I appreciated that there were quality pots and pans and dinnerware, though we would have appreciated another sharp knife or two for food preparation. Otherwise, this home was just very thoughtfully stocked with shampoos, shower gel, extra blankets....

The seclusion of the area meant no cell phone service unless you walked uphill a few blocks. The house land line had long distance calls blocked, so local calls only unless you take your mobile phone up the hill a few blocks. Not a huge deal but my husband came a day later than the rest of my group and it was tough for us to reach each other. The internet access was good, however.

Janet was very responsive and left clear instructions so that we got our deposit back no problem. We will definitely be back!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Love the location and the accommodations. A perfect place to stay for my family, all adults. Upon arriving we saw a whale, then 2 bald eagles, and sea lions. Absolutely beautiful. We went on a whale watch cruise and saw humpback whales. We toured the Hurricane Ridge, Lake Crescent, Port Townsend for cute shops, and Seattle. You can see Mt. Baker from the sunroom which was my favorite place to sit. Thanks to the owners for sharing their piece of paradise!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beach home. It was clean and very well stocked. Access to the beach was just a few steps from the property. The owner was easily reached and very cooperative. We will return to this property as often as we can.
