Bill Gates has four vacation homes on Hood Canal (Google it!) but it's still a well-kept secret just 90 min. from Seattle (2 hrs. from Portland). Few places in the world offer such natural diversity with the OCEAN & MOUNTAINS - both in one location.
"A weekend trip always feels much longer. Time slows and nature rejuvenates."
'Giggle Fish' is your Beach Cabin + Guest Boathouse located in Hoodsport, WA, on Hood Canal. It's so close to the water you can fish from the living room. This property is unique because it sits on a corner lot with a natural, unbuildable beach (200') between you and the neighbor. Privacy is hard to find here where homes normally sit side-by-side.
* Relax in the modern comfort of this 2-story home on 100' of waterfront built in 1999
* BEACH CABIN - 2 Bed & 1 Bath (1,000 sq. ft.)
* The cozy Boathouse has a Queen LOG BED, private deck (right over the water) and 3/4 bath, plus flat screen TV.
The Cabin has 2 bedrooms upstairs both with KING Beds and flat screen TV's. The cozy Boathouse has a Queen LOG BED, private deck (right over the water) and 3/4 bath. Awake to breathtaking water views - and watch SEALS and BIRDS - all from the comfort of your warm, cozy bed. This fully fenced yard has a child safety gate to the beach. The Boathouse is great for teens or if one couple desires privacy. No garage, park along Hwy 101 like the locals.
Down comforters and luxury bedding in every room, plus a KING "SLEEP NUMBER BED" in Master and modern, whimsical beach decor throughout. The main level includes an open kitchen with eating bar and stools, dining nook with seating for 4 and sectional couch, full bath, 40" HD LCD Cable TV, Blue-Ray DVD player, games, Wi-Fi, toys, books, crib/Packn'Play, inflatable toddler bed.
Wrap-around deck, with awesome, panoramic Hood Canal water views, which includes a covered gas BBQ area and comfortable seating galore - plush patio furniture and 2 outdoor dining areas. Relax on the double chaise lounge with sweeping water views. Awesome fire pit (w/benches that fold into a picnic table) ~ Make s'mores with your kids ~ YUM!!!, Bluetooth-enabled CD stereo and outdoor rock speakers. Beach towels, chairs, cooler, buckets, shovels/rakes provided for your day playing on the beach. 2 one-man Kayaks provided. Participating guests must sign and return our liability release form before arrival. Kayaking is an amazing way to experience Hood Canal, but do so at your own risk.
We're happy you enjoyed the kayaks, fire pit and stereo, but sorry you weren't fully satisfied. Thank you for pointing out most waterfront homes on Hood Canal sit along the highway. Giggle Fish has an 8 foot privacy fence, but it's along Scenic Hwy 101 so it can get busy since it's a popular drive. Severe thunderstorms hit during your stay, so maybe that wasn't romantic. Every prior guest has really enjoyed our property, giving us 5 stars. We hope you still have good memories of music at the fire and kayaking. VR 365 Derek

Beautiful spot inside the fenced in yard, private. Excellent views, property sits right on the Hood Canal. One mile across to the other side, great kayaking. Close neighbor to the east (house for sale, no-one there), to the west 150' to the next house, so you have a private beach and plenty of oysters to pick from.
Panoramic views! Bald Eagles flying by.
The fenced in property was a plus, we had a 2 yr old with us. More than enough outdoor seating and comfortable, and private.
Having the separate boathouse (bedroom & bath)was a nice feature, clean and neat.
the main house was clean and neat. Plenty of accessories to prepare meals. Easy ride to town and IGA market.
We were there the last week of July, not a cloud in the sky, nice breeze daily. You should ask for that!
Only negative is the property is right on Rt 106 so you hear the traffic going by at ~50mph. Parking is along the road so you need to be careful around your cars. The whole canal area is like that so it's not unusual for the area.
We were 5 adults, all of us had a very relaxing time. We recommended this rental. Read more

This cabin has everything you need. The kids enjoyed fishing, crabbing and getting oysters. The kayaks were the best part, everyone enjoyed them. Read more

PERFECT VACATION PLACE
Left on 07/08/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Amy W.
We had an incredible stay at Giggle Fish. A week of fun in the sun and relaxation. Being right on the water was incredible. It was dog friendly, so we were able to bring our Golden Retriever. He had a blast. It was kid friendly too and I was super impressed with there being a pack and play, as well a tricycle. It was perfect since I have an 11 month old. The clams and oysters were incredible. My husband and brother in law would go out each day at low tide and dig for them. The boat house was perfect, since we brought my mother in law with us and she could stay in there. It was quiet and private for her. The kayaks were probably the best part of the trip. Giggle Fish is conveniently located near IGA, which was a bonus when we needed to run to the store for something. Overall, we would highly recommend this to anyone and this will definitely be a new yearly tradition for our family. Read more
What a great review Amy! We are happy to read you loved the Giggle Fish. VR 365 Derek

A fabulous weekend!
Left on 06/26/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Keri M.
Our family spent a 3 night weekend at Giggle Fish and had a wonderful time! Six adults, two toddlers and two dogs and we never felt crowded. We enjoyed roasting s'mores over the firepit each evening under an amazing moon. Crab and clams from the Hama Hama Seafoods, just 10 miles north of the cabin made an amazing feast on Saturday night. We all agreed to make this an annual event and can't wait until our next visit! Read more
Thanks Tami for another great 5 Star Review. We look forward to seeing you back next summer! We are running some great Off Season Rates and Promotions so please circle back so you can save some money on your next offseason visit. VR 365 Derek

The rental was perfect for our family of 3 kids and 2 adults. The yard and house set up is perfect for young children, you never had to worry about them. We could easily have had another couple join us, there was enough room with the mother-in-law. We will definitely be going back :) Read more
