Puget Sound House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and sleeps 8

'Herron House' is located on a private island in the South Puget Sound area. Visiting the island includes a ten minute ride on the 'Charlie Wells' from the ferry dock at Lakebay, as the island is only accessable by private ferry. Although the peace and tranquility of the island may make you feel as if you are a million miles away from the rest of the world, in fact you are only a short distance. You can take day trips to Seattle as it is just over an hour away. The island is about a thirty minute drive from the town of Gig Harbor, Tacoma, and Port Orchard. It is a very small island and there is no store, so pack what you will need to relax and enjoy.

Experience the tranquility of island life. Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views while you watch bald eagles soaring over head. 'HerronHouse sits atop a hundred foot bluff that gives you wonderful views that go on for miles. This newly constructed two thousand square foot home is the perfect island retreat.

I had the opportunity to stay in this beautiful vacation home with the most incredible view. Sitting on the deck with a blanket was probably one of my most favorite parts of my trip. It was truly relaxing and allowed you let go and just enjoy the present. When I wasn't relaxing on the deck, I enjoyed the kayaks and paddle board, walked the island and visited with very nice people, walked the beach and found some shells. I loved that I could be as busy or as relaxed as I wanted.

The Herron House had everything you could possibly need and absolutely beautiful! Anne and Jim did an amazing job making sure I knew where everything was and a binder with other information, including a map, which I used to explore the island.

I am already planning my next trip!

Relaxation at its best!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot express enough how welcoming and accommodating the Herron House was. My husband, myself and our 5 year old daughter were over the top with the abundance of games, entertainment and the natural fun of the beach, deer and island adventures. The Davie's were awesome to work with and even after a mishap on our end, they were quick to respond and help us out. Definitely will be back and hope to take part in more beach combing, fishing and maybe even kayak trips around the island!

Thank you again Anne & Jim!

The Perfect Vacation Home for Relaxation and Fun!!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I stayed at this lovely vacation home for only 3 days and we wish we would have stayed longer!!! This home is absolutely relaxing and peaceful. The home is tucked away close to water. The house makes you feel like you never left your home, very clean and well maintained. If you are enjoying relaxing more than venturing outside there is a large TV in the living room and master bedroom. Along with a very comfortable tub to take a bubble bath. The views from the deck and backyard of the water are beautiful. Walking around the island was a breeze with amazing views to take in of the water and wildlife.

The owners were very hospitable and friendly. All the instructions and guides in the home were very helpful and easy to understand. We used their Kayak's to take a quick trip around the island. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends and family in need of a relaxing getaway.

We can't wait to come back!!!

Great place to get away with friends.

  • 5 of 5

Incredible view whether sunny or stormy! It was a beautiful house for relaxing with our friends. Being on an island was almost trouble for us, and we left early to ensure we could get off before the high winds shut down the ferry.
