About the property

Waterfront gem on magnificent Puget Sound

An amazing vacation home on absolute beachfront. This house feels like being on a houseboat when the tide is in. It is beautifully maintained and will surely please anyone wishing to get away from city life and enjoy the sun and activities that come with beachfront property. Look for blue herons in the morning on the beach, enjoy kayaking, fishing, clam digging or just sit back, relax and take in breathtaking views of Budd Inlet while watching sea life and boats passing by. There are 34 stairs leading down to the home, so you will get your exercise

Olympia is located on the southern most tip of the Puget Sound, an area providing recreational and historic opportunities. The city of Olympia, 15 minutes away, is family-friendly and has fun things to do like, a Hands on Children's Museum, a Wet Science Center and art galleries and eateries. The harbor at Percival Landing is a scenic marina area to walk, get an ice cream cone, stroll along the boardwalk, watch gulls and enjoy a meal at one of several good restaurants along the water. The Farmer's Market is a block away, and don't miss a free guided tour of the majestic Capitol, available 7 days a week. You won't be disappointed.

Why Hollee Arrona chose Puget Sound

This house is absolutely on the beach. When the tide is in, it feels like being on a houseboat. Everything is well maintained and included in this fantastic vacation home. Kayaks, life vests, fishing equipment etc. etc.

What makes this house unique

Amazing views of the Puget Sound, Mt. Rainier and the Capitol which is beautifully lighted at night. Wildlife surrounds the house; watch for the majestic blue heron, seals, fish jumping and deer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an amazing retreat this is...peaceful, tranquil & surely did my soul good. I came to view the lunar eclipse & full moon & was not disappointed! The weather was perfect for my entire stay & the set up of the Athens Beach home is perfect. I loved everything about it--especially the views from the cozy living room. Just spectacular! Loved having a full kitchen & loved having the master bedroom so private. Bethanne was so helpful!! She even carried some of my bags for me. I surely appreciated her personality & help. I can't think of a single thing I would add--well, except me full-time if I could. :-) Thanks for letting me share this little piece of heaven. I will return again.

Intimate, cozy and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful little place sits right on the water. You can hear the waves lapping and when the tide is high, look down over the balcony right into the water. The kitchen is wonderful for cooking! The bathtub in the master bedroom is fantastic! I enjoyed every minute.

Cozy, scenic and fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful and so comfortable for 2. The couch bed and the bedroom bed were both VERY comfortable. The view from the living area and the deck is superb. Daughter called me the first morning from the couch bed saying she was looking at water, trees and Mt. Ranier over her toes! My hubby and grown daughter loved using the kayaks and did so almost every day of their one week stay. They report LOVING the well outfitted kitchen and especially the 5 burner range which was a delight to cook on. I imagine the giant tub was what i heard the most raves for since they are both very tall people and seldom get to stretch out in a tub. Hollie was a gracious and very helpful host and even the neighbors were nice and friendly. Now that these 2 have had so much fun there I cannot wait to have my turn! This is indeed a jewel not to be missed.

Athens beach house

  • 5 of 5

This home is a gem, wonderful hospitality by the host, nothing to worry about when we arrived. The view was spectacular of Mt Rainer at sunrise. We enjoyed the playful seals and deer near by. I would recommend this anyone.
