Bedrooms 5
Space 3,500 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms Waterfront with Mountain Views

Enjoy stunning, expansive views of the Hood Canal, Whidbey Island, and Foulweather Bluff at this beautiful, two-level, beachfront home. You have the option of renting just one of the two levels (each complete with a kitchen and bathroom) for smaller groups, or you can rent the entire home for a larger group of up to 11 people. For information about reserving only one level, please email the owner.

The upper level of the home has a master bedroom with deck access, a king-size bed, and an ensuite marble bathroom with a jetted tub and walk-in shower. There are two other bedrooms on this level, each with a queen-size bed and an adjoining bathroom with a shower. An open, fully equipped kitchen with Corian countertops, a dining room, two steps to a sunken living room, and a full-length deck complete this level.

The home’s lower level has two bedrooms, each with a queen-size bed. There is one bathroom with a shower. The kitchen is also fully equipped and the large living room has ground-level beach access.

From nearly every room in the home you can take in the incredible views of the water, mountains, and watch the wildlife. The beach is open for community use, as is the small boat launch next door. You can take leisurely walks through the neighborhood or on the beach. As you explore the area, be sure to stop by the small towns of Port Ludlow, Port Gamble, Kingston, and Chimacum. Also, the beautiful, Victorian tourist destination of Port Townsend is only a 35 minute drive away (22.2 miles), offering many entertainment, dining, and sight-seeing opportunities.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review, relaxing is what we looked forward to each time we were in "Paradise". There are so many places to explore in our area, but we would often just stay home because it was so nice to be away from the city. We hope you will visit us again.

Comfort, Natural Light & Views

  • 5 of 5

A lovely spacious home filled with natural light. The main floor living, dining, kitchen areas & bedroom/bathroom arrangements throughout the house worked well for our group of family & friends. The house was well kept & the upstairs kitchen well equipped. We were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a seal and one afternoon the snowy Cascades! Thank you Ann for prompt and reliable communication too!

Wonderful Location, Home and Views!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ann! You have been a pleasure to work with. Your place is wonderful! The peacefulness of the area and views from the house are better than we could have imagined. The layout of the house was just what we needed. Also, it was very spacious! We had a terrific time and didn’t want to leave. Port Ludlow is a great place. We will definitely come back in the future. Thanks again!

Fun family vaca. - great views

  • 5 of 5

Great location, beach and size for our extended family getaway. The house was set up with a kitchen/bedrooms on both floors.

Master bedroom and the views from the deck were worth every penny. Beautiful master bath too!

It would have been nice to have some "toys", buckets, sand chairs, kayak like other rentals, but we enjoyed the beaches anyway.

Be careful of the broiler- it runs hot and the smoke sensors are touchy- we got to meet the local firefighters!

Plenty of parking, quiet neighbors and quick response when we contacted the owner with concerns.

Views from all rooms!

  • 5 of 5

This house has fabulous views from the living room, kitchen, two upper bedrooms and two lower bedrooms. We spent quite a bit of time on the deck watching the otters, dolphins and sea lions cavort. The rooms are all good size and the house was clean and neat upon arrival. We used the place for our annual family reunion with six adults and three kids and had plenty of room. The little town of Port Ludlow was charming and there is even a nice inn at the Marina with a high rated (by Trip Advisor) restaurant where we had a very nice lunch. It is also a relatively short drive to Port Townsend and all it's shops and places to eat. We would definitely rent this place again. The beach is quite nice when the tide is out but nonexistent when the tide is in.

Owner's Response: We wish the beach was there all the time, but those tides have a mind of their own. We have so many great places to explore in our area; I am glad you were able to spend time finding some of them. Please consider us when you are planning your next reunion in our area, we look forward to having you as our guests again.
