The Olympic National Park Experience
Our vacation home is at the border and entrance to coastal Olympic National Park at Rialto Beach. You are isoloated from the crowds and noise and uniquely located to enjoy the many attractions of the Park. The home also borders the Quillayute River and the Quileute Nation. The large fishable gravel bar, shared with Olympic National Park, is an excellent place for fly fishing, kayaking or watching sunsets. The Fall salmon season is phenomenal!
The home sleeps 8 adults and 2 children with ample parking. There's something to do for everyone and many of our guests remark it is a perfect base camp to explore Olympic National Park and its surroundings, then spend the evenings enjoying the home, doing a quick hike or watching a sunset.
Some of Our Reviews
Perfect Home in a Perfect Spot...
"Our family of four all loved this home! It has a great floor plan and is very comfortable with large gathering areas (dining table and family room). The kitchen is well stocked for cooking your own meals and everything is brand new! The property is truly breathtaking. It borders the NP so you feel as if you are staying right in the Park. The Fishhook Tree is an amazing spot that our 20 year old son went to at the end of every day to relax and be alone in nature. The stars at night are incredible. While viewing them one night, we could hear a herd of elk in the distance and the next morning there were 24 of them grazing in the back yard. We've never experienced anything like that before! The river is beautiful and full of wildlife. We took advantage of the proximity to Rialto Beach and spent every day in Olympic National Park. The Park has an immense variety of hikes and habitats so you can spend days and days there. We've stayed in dozens of rental homes over the years and this is definitely one of the best! Obviously, I highly recommend staying here if you are planning a trip to this area." Diane, Illinois
One of the Best VRBO Rentals Ever!!
"Property is very private and serene. Everything in the house is brand new, immaculately clean and tastefully decorated. Beautiful deck with meadow view. One of our favorite features was the outdoor fire pit complete with dry wood and kindling for great campfire nights. Convenient to Rialto Beach and the western beaches of Olympic Park. Used the home as a base camp for exploring and hiking in the Hoh rainforest. Enjoyed everything about the house. Get groceries and supplies in Forks and come back to a bbq at the house after a day of exploring. We will definitely be coming back to this property." Bruce, California
"...Your home was amazing and perfect for a family trip. All of my family want to come back and stay at your place again. Although we explored the area of Olympic National Park, we could have been just as happy staying at your place the entire visit. Beautiful and fun to explore!" Dr. Ronda, Texas
Fantastic Home in a Peaceful Setting...
"This was a wonderful home for our vacation on the Olympic Peninsula. Beautiful setting, nestled in the forest 300 yards from the Quillayute River and two miles from Rialto Beach. The house was perfect for two families (4 adults 4 kids) with many amenities and high end finishes. We particularly enjoyed the expansive deck and fire pit. The owner was responsive and accommodating and provides everything needed to enjoy this wonderful home. We would definitely stay here again and in fact plan to come back for a salmon fishing adventure in the future." Allison, Washington
This is One of the Best Experiences...
"I stayed at Jim's place with my wife, 2 kids and my parents. We loved the place as it was quiet, very clean, very well furnished and had a huge lot. We ran from home to Rialto Beach both days, one of the best runs. This is one of the best experiences. Jim is a great host and has kept the place with love and pride. Highly recommend." Dr. Karan, California
Made for a Memorable Trip...
"The home was beautiful, solid but what really made this an incredible experience for us were the beautifully maintained grounds around the property. Sitting on the porch overlooking the meadow and indelible beauty of the region was a very lucky experience for us. I hope we can return one day. The beds were very comfortable, the home was very clean and we were able to easily correspond with the owner. Finally, the location (the sign for Olympic National Park was just in front of the home) couldn't be beat." Arash, California
Jim's House is in a Beautiful, Beautiful Setting...
"With a spacious deck (and ample deck chairs) overlooking the view. Inside it is lovely, elegant even, and sparkling clean, but also very practical, with just about every kitchen (and other) convenience you might need. Communicating with Jim is very easy, and that made our stay problem-free. (My husband and I stayed in Jim's house with our 3 adult children, their spouses and significant others, and one 8 year old boy.) I would love to stay there again!" Anne, Pennsylvania
Perfect Escape from Reality!
"We had an amazing time at this house. Comfortable, with everything we could want! The beds were so comfortable and the river access was great. We walked down there each day. Communication with Jim was quick and helpful! We hope to come back and stay here again in the future." Jennifer, Georgia
Our Stay was Absolutely Phenomenal!
"We utilized this home as our base camp while exploring all of the areas of Olympic National Park. Being just a few minutes from Rialto beach allowed us to stroll the beach whenever we had time to spare. The home was immaculate and had everything we needed- including puzzles and board games for a rainy afternoon. The memories we made watching the bald eagle on the river front and making smores around the fire pit will not be forgotten. Our entire family highly recommends this home!" Katie, Indiana
The Location of the Property is Exceptional...
"Access to the most interesting places on the Olympia Peninsula and especially the ocean (Rialto Beach) and the river was wonderful and easy. The house and its amenities was outstanding. And you can't beat the sunrises, the sunsets, and the night sky. It's all there, and it's made easy from Jim's beautiful house." Peter, Massachusetts
Who ever They Hired as an Interior Decorator did a Beautiful Job!
"The inside of the house is even more beautiful than the scenery, if possible." Ariel, Washington
We will Stay Here Again...
"My husband, our eight month old daughter and my brother-in-law stayed at the Olympic National for six weeks while we were in the area for work. The house is lovely, secluded, peaceful and has great amenities! Jim was terrific to work with. He was so understanding of our situation and was really flexible with us. We will definitely be staying here when we are in the area for work again." Noelle, Alaska
The House Made Us Feel Right at Home...
"I looked at many places and found my communication with Jim the best. The property was so beautiful, quiet and my family LOVED walking to the river and picking blackberries. It was perfect for our plans to visit the area, hang out on several beaches and enjoy each other's company. The house was so comfortable. All the special details in the house made us feel right at home. We sat outside on the deck every morning drinking coffee & visting, hung out in the family room every evening talking about our adventures from the day. My family picked blackberries and made rustic pies. Everyone LOVED our time at the house." Tammy, Washington
What a Perfect Home!
"Great location near Rialto Beach, beautifully appointed home. Jim has thought of everything -- clean, modern, spacious, homey. All the amenities and a guide book for everything. We loved every minute and hope to return some day! Thank you Jim for an exceptional experience! You're the model of a perfect AirBnB owner. With our appreciation." Rachel, California
Great Base Camp!
"Great house for our family of 5 to have a base camp for visiting the Hoh Rainforest and Rialto and Second Beach. Communication was very clear and we had no issues checking in. The house was very tastefully decorated and well appointed with everything we need to have meals at the house when we wanted. The beds were comfy and the rooms were all good sized. I wished we had reserved it for more days. Thanks so much for your hospitality." Laura, Pennsylvania
We Would Definitely Go Back...
"We stayed at Jim's place with our 2 adult children, their spouses and our 2 year old grandson while visiting Olympic National Park. Total of 6 adults and a toddler. It was a great location as a base to visit the west side of the park. We enjoyed our evenings at his home relaxing, playing games and exploring his property. Jim was very prompt in providing detailed information and replying to all questions. We would definitely go back if opportunity occurred again." Donna, Texas
