About Kamala Heath

We are English transplants who have fallen in love with the Pacific Northwest. The grandchildren love to come and spend time here.We love sharing the cabin with people who really appreciate the beautiful setting.We have spent years upgrading the property.Not easy with over 110 inches of rain a year! We are thrilled that our guests are returning and recommending the

place to their friends. Thank you to all of you and we love your nice comments in the guest book.

Kamala Heath purchased this cabin in 1984

Why Kamala Heath chose Olympic Peninsula

We come here to rest and rejuvenate and leave the city behind.Our family has owned and loved this property for over 30 years. Actually, the property has owned us! Especially the moles! Many of our English relatives have come to visit and are always amazed at the scenery.Last year's favourite memory was of my English buddies from high school sitting around the blazing campfire,late at night,drinks in hand, laughing until we cried. We wish to share this peaceful sanctuary with you.Make sure you take the time to walk the trails and pack a picnic for the beach.

What makes this cabin unique

Tranquility, relaxation, and seclusion. We have enjoyed watching the wildlife in the large yard.The trails are magical.Also the beach-combing,fishing and hunting is pretty good too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Well i suppose I am a guest now in my own house,as I have to book out the nights I want for myself or my large family.I just want to say a "thank you" to all my returning guests.They must have meant it when they wrote in the guest book "we'll be back" I just had a call from a family coming back for the 5th time. I am a pretty easy drive from the Seattle and Tacoma areas. Their comment was "we have found our retreat and recharge place" It makes me so happy to share the family cabin and the incredible rain forest with gentle nature-loving people.Please continue to leave your fun comments in the guest book and I do appreciate it when you send a review into VRBO. I know you read them when making your travel plans. Thanks again and I hope to hear from you soon. Kamala.

How Valley Hideaway is a very special place. Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I totally enjoyed our stay at Kamela's unique and comfortable home. She graciously greeted us and showed us around. She is such a thoughtful hostess and provided us with useful advice. There's a wonderful trail in the rainforest behind the house. Delightful. It is such a peaceful, beautiful spot. Highly recommend. It would be great for families too.

Best Vacation home you could ever get in this national park! Just snatch it!

  • 5 of 5

Kamala - I just can't thank you enough for giving us the holiday of our life. This is such a beautiful quaint property, 27 acres to ourself and just surrounded by the beauty of mother nature. We came for a girls trip , 4 of us and we could not be more than happy to have stayed here. We wished we stayed here another day instead of the lake Quinault lodge. This property spoilt us. Cute rustic home stocked up with all the essentials. The beautiful gazebo and firepit and all greenery. The private trail through the rainforest all for ourselves was so enjoyable. Kamala has put a lot of thought into this property and also she told us about how hard she had to work to build this property. It has so much history and I am so in love with this place that we never wanted to go back. I will recommend this to all my friends and also visit with my husband and son very soon. It's very close to the hoh rainforest trails (hall of mosses) and Forks,WA. Stay here for your entire vacation and drive around eveyrwhere from here. Ruby beach, rialto, hall of mosses, forks, suldoc falls... Everything is just a couple of hours drive away...

Secluded hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing stay in this secluded fantasy forest cabin. rustic, but with all the amenities you need. Out door shower is the bomb! (there is an idoor shower, but why use it when you can shower in the forest) Trails on the prorty offer a good glimpse into the dense Hoh Rain forest. We were able to day trip to hikes and nature daily and still be back in time to make a meal and take a load off. Close by: Hoh Rain forest, Rialto Beach, Forks. Id like to stay a week next time!!

Owner's Response: Dave please come back soon. This cabin is addictive. Some guests come back every year. That shower was fun to build with help from all my family members. Including the two year old great grandson. See you soon Kamala
