About the property

About Janette Roberts

A Chicago transplant since 1994 I reside in a suburb 20 minutes east of Seattle, Washington with my wonderful partner Larry Miller and our two pooches, Vino and Bella. An accountant by degree, I run my own bookkeeping company.

My dream has always been to own a waterfront property and Seal Cove Bungalow has made that dream come true. Dear friends built the bungalow and put in the the amazing patios and alcoves. They gave me a key and said the bungalow needs to be shared. A few years later I had the good fortune to purchase the bungalow and it has remained a place to be shared with family, friends and people who seek a respite. Once you arrive you won't want to leave. The tidal cove works its serene magic on one's senses. It's the reach of the timeless into our needful lives.

Janette Roberts purchased this bungalow in 2002

What makes this bungalow unique

This cabin bungalow is an amazing place on earth. Come and enjoy the peaceful sounds of nature and engage in kayaking on the Puget Sound with the seals. There is nothing better than a quiet morning of coffee, wildlife and sea stars, a day of adventures on the ocean and a roaring fire and a glass of wine at sunset.

Access to the small bay, kayaks and Sea Lions made our stay very memorable. It was everything we were looking for.

A perfectly peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this charming little cabin. The cabin is clean, orderly, and well-appointed with all the necessities for a nice getaway. It's situated in a private little cove that's alive with wildlife, including seals and an assortment of native bird species. As mentioned in the other reviews, it has gorgeous natural views from the balcony, and it has its own access to the water for swimming, kayaking, or canoeing. Highly recommended for a restorative escape from the city! Thanks!

Clean and inviting.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay! Even though it was summer the evenings were cool and I was looking forward to the fireplace but could not use it. Disappointed since I don't have one of my own. The slope was a bit steep for my two year old but it is a nice place for adults.

Relaxing place with a calm view

  • 5 of 5

We chose this place to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. The house and gardens are beautiful. The house layout is very cozy and we enjoyed the various porches and seating perches. The bay is well named as there was a small herd of seals that visited and climbed up on a floating dock right across from the house. Kayaking was fulfilling and there is lots to explore in the little cove as well as Harstine Island and Stretch Island north around the bend.

The place looks set up for groups but for the two of us it was just wonderful. Something we wont soon forget.

Delightful cabin and peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

The property is lovely and the setting sublime. The owners were easy to work with. I had hoped to go day hiking in the Olympic National Forest. The distance was really too far to make that enjoyable. Lots of weekend traffic on the Kitsap Peninsula and Rt. 101 made staying put the best option. It was a joy to stay at Janette and Larry's cabin.

Perfect sisters weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This is the CUTEST bungalow! It is decorated wonderfully and well equipped. The cove is very peaceful and relaxing to watch the tide come and go. Kayaking was great to watch the seals and float over schools of fish. I'll be back for sure!
