Description of the home we are offering for exchange
Homelink members since 2007. We recently made Hood Canal our permanent residence and have purchased the home next door for non-simultaneous exchanges. We enjoy weekend, simultaneous and non-simultaneous exchanges throughout the year. Waterfront homes with 4 kayaks, 1 pedal boat, 1 canoe, 1 stand up paddle board. Oysters and clams on beach. Less than an hour to Olympic National Park and ferry to Seattle. Two hours to the Pacific Ocean. Sunset views. Great golf courses nearby. Chambers Bay, home of the 2015 US Open is an hour away
See www.masoncountytourism.com, www.visitkitsap.com and www.experiencewa.com for information on our area. You can use this property as a starting point to visit the Pacific Northwest or spend your whole vacation relaxing on the waterfront.
House - 2 or more floors/ Main Residence
Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area
Hood Canal is a fjord-like part of Puget Sound. Boating, swimming, seafood gathering, birding and relaxing are all available right out our front door. Spend the day playing at our home or touring local quaint small towns. Be back in time to bbq and have an evening bonfire (s'mores supplies included). The closest hiking trail is located 2 miles away at Twanoh State Park. Two national parks (Olympic and Mt. Rainier) and the Pacific Ocean are easy day trips, as are big city experiences in Seattle and Tacoma.
Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home
Olympic National Park (1 hour); Twanoh State Park (5 minutes); Theler Birding Trail (10 minutes); Port Townsend- Victorian town (1 1/2 hours); Poulsbo- Norwegian village (1 hour); Bremerton- ferry to Seattle, Naval shipyards (35 minutes); Port Gamble- last company town in the US (1 hour); Tacoma-home of the glass and car museums (1 hour); Pacific Ocean (2 hours); Mt. Rainier National Park (2 hours)
Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules
Our main home may not be available during July or August (unless you tempt us with a really unique offer); however we have purchased the three bedroom/two bath modular home next door and that home (complete with the same waterfront and boats,etc.) is available for non-simultaneous exchanges every month except July. We tend to trade homes during May and September/October when the weather is usually good in the Pacific Northwest and travel destinations aren't as crowded. We are open to exchanges in the United States, Canada and Europe. We will consider trades anywhere in the world as some of our favorite exchanges have been places we didn't think about going before we were approached by Homelink members.
