About the property

Immaculate Beach Home-Epic Views, Abundant wildlife, Private setting+shellfish!

Welcome to the most private beachfront vacation rental in the heart of Union at Hood Canal! Located on the coveted South Shore, guests are greeted with SPECTACULAR, UNOBSTRUCTED 180 DEGREE VIEWS of the Olympic Mountains and the picturesque "Great Bend" that are sensational from the large deck and nearly every room in the home. This beautiful and peaceful location is the ideal setting for a romantic retreat or just to rest, relax and rejuvenate!

This immaculate waterfront home is 1100 square feet, has a newly renovated kitchen, two queen bedrooms, and an updated bathroom. Suitable for a small family or group, the home accommodates a maximum of 4 guests (5 with owner approval only). To keep you connected, the home has high speed wireless internet and flat screen HDTV's.

Just 1.5 hours from Seattle and 2.5 hours from Portland, the beach cabin is at water's edge and has just the right touches to make guests feel comfortable and at home. A large, 700 square foot private deck overlooks stunning views of the mountains, water and wildlife. Guests can easily and safely step down from the deck to the beach and water using the heavy duty, aluminum, marine grade ladder. In the summer, guests are provided a propane grill and plenty of seating for outdoor dining, basking and relaxing.

Resting on the shores of Hood Canal and surrounded by the snow covered Olympic Mountains, the home is at a CONVENIENT CENTRAL LOCATION. Here in the town of Union, you are just 2 miles from Alderbrook Resort and Spa (Guests have access to resort amenities; bar, restaurant, spa, golf, kayak, SUP rentals). The beach home is a great spot for a bride and groom, their guests, or members of a wedding party to stay at leading up to the big day. The Union City Beach House is just a 4 minute walk away from groceries, the Hood Canal Marina, the Public Boat Launch, and the 2 Margaritas Family Mexican Restaurant.

The tidelands and PRIVATE BEACH are fun for the kids to explore and for adults, sweet and succulent Pacific Oysters and delectable Manila Clams are easy to collect and do not get any fresher and tastier than this!

The water is warm and great for kayaking, boating and numerous other water activities. The scenery is awe-inspiring and ever changing. Our guests delight in nature as seals, bald eagles, great blue heron, belted kingfisher and many other migratory birds and ducks abound. The abundant wildlife and phenomenal sunsets provide ample opportunity for captivating photography.

Besides the numerous water related activities, there are many things to do at Hood Canal, especially for the adventurous! Head to the Olympics and hike Mount Ellinor, Staircase or other more or less challenging trails nearby. Several highly ranked golf courses are close by including, Alderbrook, Salish Cliffs at Little Creek, Gold Mountain and others. Nearby casinos include Little Creek and the Lucky Dog. Gourmet dining is available nearby at The Alderbrook Resort and Spa and The Robinhood Restaurant and Pub. Other activities include wine tasting, antiquing, spa treatments, excursions and listening to live music at local venues.

There is really no place like our Union City Beach House at Hood Canal. This is a place where memories are made. Whether you are looking for a home base for recreation and adventure, a private location for a romantic getaway or just want to enjoy nature and the beauty of the Olympic Peninsula without being deep in the woods, we invite you to be our guests, enjoy the comfortable accommodations and discover all that Hood Canal has to offer.

Kevin, Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why Kevin, Owner chose Union

The home is built right on the oyster beach and at high tide with the waves lapping against the bulkhead, you might think you are on a boat! Low tide brings many, MANY eagles, herons and salmon.

Unlike most waterfront vacation rentals, this home has surprising privacy. No neighbors watching you, no resident homeowner cramping your style.

The house is on the water side of the street - no crossing the road to get to the beach!

The property is fenced for the safety of pets and children.

What makes this house unique

The Union City Beach house is the perfect vacation spot! This peaceful location is just a four minute walk to picturesque downtown Union, the Union Country Store, the Union City Market, the Dos Margaritas Mexican Restaurant and the Hood Canal Marina and public boat launch.

The Alderbrook Resort is just a 3 minute drive and guests can rent kayaks, SUP's and other watercraft. Spa services and restaurants are also available to the general public.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Copy of review from guest on the vacation rental site airbnb 3/8/14.

The owner was very communicative before my stay, promptly and thoroughly answering my questions. The beach house itself was far better than I had even imagined it, and the photos do not do it justice! The views from all three water-facing sides of the house were absolutely stunning, and during high tide I felt as if I were on my own private island. The views of the mountains were also tremendous, and I even though I visited during late-winter, when the sun was out, the water was deep and blue and mesmerizing. The house itself is tastefully decorated and fully equipped with everything you need for any kind of vacation, from relaxing to active, and the views from the master bedroom are like the cherry on the top of the cake. The location is also perfect: it feels very secluded, but you're a short drive from restaurants, supermarkets, etc. In short: The Union City Beach House at Hood Canal is a real gem, and I can't wait to go back!

Beautiful Spot~Lovely HOME!

  • 5 of 5

This home was more than what we expected! We have been to many Vacation Rentals in the Pacific Northwest and this was by far the best! The owner communicated clearly the details ... getting to the house and settling in was made easy. Relaxing on such comfortable furniture was a treat! The kitchen was so well stocked - it was just so easy to forget the bustle of the city! We are readers and the quiet atmosphere made this easy, too. The view and access to beach were an added bonus. Truly a retreat spot. Thank you! We will recommend AND be back!

Absolutely stunning location and extremely comfortable home! It feels like you’re sitting on the water and the mountains are incredibly beautiful across the canal.

The house has everything you need for cooking, the furniture is comfortable for an evening movie with a fire, and the view cannot be beat. The house has great amenities - heated bathroom floors, gas fire pit outside, and large deck to name a few. We plan to come back at least once a year —one of our favorite rentals of all time!

GREAT house, view and location!

  • 5 of 5

We just had a wonderful four night stay at this beautiful house ON south Hood Canal! We loved the house, very comfy and clean, windows and decks with amazing waterfront view, located close to Union and several great State Parks and beaches.

We will be returning, and highly recommend this very reasonably priced rental.
