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.

About Ann Templeton

My husband and I were born and raised in Bremerton, Washington. We purchased the land, designed, and built this house as a summer home. It was completed in 1994 and has been enjoyed by our family all these years.

Loved it loved it loved it!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable. Lots of room and set up nicely. We saw lots of wildlife, porpoises, seals, otters and lots of sea creatures. Our halibut fishing was a bust, but at least we had this wonderful home to seek comfort. I would definitely stay here again. Probably longer than just the weekend.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home.

We had a wonderful family reunion. The house is so spacious, there was room for all with no one feeling squeezed in.

Owner's Response: We are glad you felt you had lots of "elbow room". When we designed and built our home we wanted our whole extended family to be able to enjoy being together without tripping over each other. We hope you will visit us again for your next family gathering.

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!
