About the property

Beautiful View And An Absolutely Peaceful, Quiet Location.

Located at the very top of a scenic hill top overlooking Hood Canal and the Olympic Mountains, this 2 to 3 bedroom home offers privacy, serenity, relaxation and access to outdoor activities on Hood Canal and the Olympic National Forest and Park. The views are captivating, an ongoing theatre of sun, clouds, tides, and gorgeous sunsets over the mountains and water, all viewed relaxing in the outdoor hot tub or from the expansive living room windows.

About David Gerbing

My parents built this home in 1984 and have lived here until recently as they are now in a retirement center. I am a professor at Portland State University, and I spend time here as the primary occupant. However, there is also much time to rent to those who enjoy the beauty and relaxation that this house and property offer.

David Gerbing purchased this house in 1984

Million dollar view

The view was incredible. Home could use some minor repairs & updating or would have gave a 5 stars.

Great view and big house

  • 4 of 5

House could use a little work but location, view and size of the place was wonderful for our family trip...six of us easily comfortable and a short drive to some good food, beaches and golf. Thanks David!

Amazing Huge Place

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. The view of the mountains and canal is magnificent and the the house itself is very nice and very large, plenty of room for my husband, myself, and three teenagers. You have to look past the peeling 80's wallpaper ( next time I'm bringing my paintbrush!) But, even so, we were all quite happy and comfortable. We have stayed in many very nice homeaways, in a lot of different places, but this is our favorite so far. I would love to be able to stay here again on our next Washington trip.

Breathtaking views, private, room for the family..

  • 4 of 5

Only reason for 4/5 stars is that there is still work to be done here...but it is entirely usable, beautiful, close enough to activities yet removed enough for quiet down days...

Million dollar views - aging home

  • 3 of 5

The seclusion, location, and views were outstanding!

The home is older and in need of significant maintenance, repair (peeling paint, cracked windows, patching and holes in drywall), cleaning (Dishes in the cupboards were dirty and needed to be washed before use. Dirty clothes in one of the beds - had to wash and remake upon arrival. Lots of personal items throughout the house - and one room that was locked off - used the living room as the 3rd bedroom ), etc - inside and out.

Decent stay for the price (if you can get the monthly discounted rate).

Owner and manager were easy to work with and provided good communication.
