What Past Guests Are Saying
Amazing views, beautiful, relaxing home
We spent a week long vacation with friends and young children at this beautiful home on the water --- the views from the deck and living area are stunning. The children loved walking down to the beach to see scores of star-fish and jellyfish each morning - what a treat! The house was open, airy with a great basement area with bunkbeds for children. We were impressed by the great kitchenware available - very well equipped and especially loved the great waffle iron! Would stay there again for sure!
This was a lovely property - very spacious and comfortable. Views are outstanding and the beach is full of wonderful ocean life that my son loved. It was easy to find, close to Shelton but still secluded and peaceful. We would definitely go back!
Relaxing for the Parents, Fun for the Kids
We stayed at the agate Beach House for a week with our 2-year old and some friends and their 4-year old. Overall we had a great time. The deck is wonderful and we barely spent any time indoors. Preparing meals was also good fun in the generously appointed kitchen. The kids loved the beach and marveled endlessly at the starfish, crabs, and jellyfish! One night we even saw a seal frolicking just off the beach in front of us. This is a great house for anyone who wants to spend a relaxing weekend far removed from the daily grind.
