About the area

This rural residential area, is just south of Kingston on the part of Puget Sound called Port Madison. It was originally established (in 1916) as a summer community for Seattleites. The Indianola dock, built when the Mosquito Fleet boats supplied the majority of transportation on Puget Sound, was easy access for weekending families. Now this local landmark has been converted for recreational use (shortened to 870 feet), and the center of on-going local activity. TAKE THE 30 MINUTE (BAINBRIDGE) FERRY FROM DOWNTOWN SEATTLE AND ANOTHER SHORT 25 MINUTE DRIVE TO PARADISE! You can also take the Edmonds to Kingston Ferry (10 minutes), or drive around via the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. Over a dozen golf courses in the area: White Horse, Gold Mountain, Port Ludlow and Trophy Lake to name a few. If you visit in the fall, visit the head of Miller Bay to see the salmon run at the Grover Creek Fish Hatchery operated by the Suquamish Tribe. It is just a short drive to St. Peter's Mission, resting place of Chief Seattle. The site of "Old Man House" marks the location of one of the great cedar lodges used by northwest Native Americans for thousands of years. Clearwater Casino in Suquamish as well as The Point Casino in Hansville are each ten minutes away. There are numerous historic towns to explore. Poulsbo is a fun destination, full of amazing restaurants, fun shops, a beautiful marina and waterfront park - there's always something going on! Port Townsend offers a haunted castle. Port Gamble is a 120 acre National Historic Landmark with turn of the century buildings. Hansville has the Point-no-Point Lighthouse. Antique shops and regional artists and boutiques abound. In season, you can crab, dig for clams, or just do nothing at all. One of the more interesting things in town is the annual summer festival "Indianola Days", complete with fun run, amateur sand castle building, salmon bake, occasional talent show, and pet parade.

“Beach House review”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2015

On arrival we found everything in order and the house ready for us. This is not the first time we have stayed here and again it did not disappoint. This has to be by far the most popular rental house in Indianola. From the book stories from the previous renters it confirms the statement. That many people staying with the positive statements Debbie AND Jeff HAVE TO BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT,

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your thoughtful comments Frank! It has been our sincere pleasure to share the house (and the view), with wonderful families like yours. Hope to welcome you back soon!

“Fantastic Stay!”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2014

What an amazing view this property has to offer! We were totally enjoyed our stay at this wonderful place, where everything is so clean and ready! We have enjoyed everything from the multi-level deck, the fire-pit with an ocean view, to the 5 kayaks that they readily have. The house is also amazingly clean that equipped with literally everything that you need! Definitely will recommend to family and friends!

Owner's reply: Thanks so much Tina! We're happy that your family had a great week! 6 kayaks... btw lol!!!

“The PERFECT getaway rental!”

Reviewed 18 Feb 2013

Twice a year for the past 6 or 7 years, the 8 of us rent a house for an extended scrapbooking weekend. We are always in search of the "perfect" getaway house. We finally found that house! The Indianoloa Beach House was perfect in every way. We didn't want to leave. The owners know how to provide a welcoming environment and thought of everything. The beds, linen, individual soaps, coffee, etc. were classy additions. The kitchen is stocked w/ all the necessities and MORE! The house was plenty big and able to accommodate all of our tables and scrapbooking materials. The view was beautiful and the deck was wonderful to sit on, even in the cold of January. Would love to come to this house in the summer! Everything is up to date and the decor very classy. There wasn't anything that I thought could have been different. We will definitely be back within the year.

“Indianola Beach House”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2012

This was the best vacation destination! I had a wonderful mother/daughter get-a-way and the Indianola Beach House was the perfect place...so warm and welcoming...nothing to do except sit back, enjoy our surroundings, and relax. This is the perfect place to have a family reunion! We loved the house, beach, and town in Indianola and plan on returning with family in the near future. Thank you for an awesome vacation get-a-way!!!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your very kind review! It is our pleasure to share the beach house, and the peacful setting with wonderful guests like you. :) Looking forward to your next visit!

“Amazing Retreat”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2012

My son discovered this gem on vacation home rentals. We visited with my sister and her family. The place is enchanting. The home is in fantastic condition, with every detail considered and planned for. There was plenty of room for 7 people to spread out, but still great spaces to be together. We loved cooking in the well-appointed kitchen and dining on the stunning deck. The four teen-aged kids were endlessly in the kayaks or exploring on the beach, with most evenings spent around the fire pit on the deck. The beds were comfortable with nice linens. The ability to run a batch of laundry was sure convenient. The surrounding area is charming and great for a relaxing walk. I think it is the best relaxation I have had in a very, very long time and the memories created with my family will be treasured.

Owner's reply: Dr. Bearnson, Thank you for your very nice review and for being such wonderful guests! Indianola is indeed a charming place and the perfect spot to unwind. We look forward to having you again!

“Exceptional in every way”

Everything in the description of this property is accurate and our experience was 100% positive in every way possible. The home is gorgeous and the location is second to none. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we plan to be back as soon as possible

“Great place for a girls weekend!”

Reviewed 8 Nov 2011

We found this home to rent on VRBO and were excited that it slept 12! We cooked a full Thanksgiving dinner here in this gourmet kitchen for all! We stayed in our slippers and beach-combing shoes the full 3 days we were here. Scrap-booking, knitting, quilting, and beading were just a few of the activities that kept us indoors but loving the view from ALL THREE floors of this amazing home. The owners were wonderful to work with, the beds were comfortable, the linens were plentiful and high quality, the home was immaculate! We will stay here again, thank you for sharing it!

“Absolutely Lovely!!!”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2011

I rented this property for my family to stay in over my wedding weekend. It is just beautiful! The view of Seattle, Bainbridge Is., and Mt. Rainier is amazing, and the house sits right in front of a huge sandy beach. The kitchen has everything we could possibly have needed. The house is only a block from charming downtown Indanola. After the wedding, my family and guests built a fire in the fire pit (with the wood that was provided) and watched the water. We all had a wonderful time at the Beach House. What a great place!


Reviewed 10 Aug 2011

The house is beautiful, comfortable, well-appointed. The first floor kitchen has all the standard appliances and some nonstandard: a crockpot, food processor, electric griddle, etc. Pizza stones and many baking and cooking pans, pots, bowls. Lots of silverware and dishes. All well organized and easy to find. There's a big gas grill on the deck. Beautiful deck! And two beautiful balconies above. Lots of sleeping possibilities. We had a wonderful time there, a whole crowd of family from 80 year olds to a baby. Everyone slept well, ate well, walked on the beach, swam, rode the two kayaks... This is a great house. You will love it.

“Awesome Memories”

Reviewed 17 May 2010

The Indianola Beach House is the perfect location for a girlfriend getaway! The home is brand new, very spacious and well stocked with linens, kitchen items, etc. The first level great room's oversized coffee table works excellent for an evening of lively games. Our beach combing adventure during low tide was amazing, perfect for young and old and oh how the dogs love it! Our plan was to dine out but because of the marvelous party sized deck with its incredible views, we couldn't pull ourselves away and the fire pit for late night s'mores was so appreciated. Strolling through this idyllic waterfront community is yet another wonderful activity while in Indianola and the convenience of the beach house to Seattle makes this an effortless trip that seems miles away but yet it's so close. Thanks for the memories!

"What an incredible time! We can't thank you enough for sharing your beautiful home with us and giving our family the opportunity to build such wonderful memories together. We spend so much of our time on a schedule, and needing to do this or that,that it was great to enjoy our kids exploring the wonder of God's creation. Gooey ducks, moon snails, crab, starfish, a flounder, and even a sea lion following us in the kayaks...how do you schedule those experiences? We feel very fortunate to have found you and appreciate your hospitality."

The stay at the Beach House currently ranks as our best family vacation. The reason for this is all about the beautiful house with plenty of space, great location, and a great owner to work with. The owners have a best in class house that comes with all of the amenties that one could want for a vacation. The house is very spacious and provided my wife, me, 3 kids (ages between 4 to 8), and dog with plenty of space to relax and have a great time. The 3 levels are perfect for a family as it allows plenty of room for everyone to spread out and do things that they enjoy doing. The 2nd level was nice as the kids were able to go up to that level and watch movies, TV, and play games, while my wife enjoyed readings books, or sitting outside. The pictures are very accurate and the property is in outstanding shape. The house was very clean and well-maintained as the owners have a lot of items to keep you busy. The house has games, binoculars to take a look at the views, wide range of books and movies. Even better it has cable TV and Wifi service. We ended up bringing too many things as the house had everything one would need. Next time we will definitely pack lighter. The house does have a very big kitchen and has all the supplies that one could want to cook with. In addition they have a great BBQ grill out on the deck. One night we did an iron chef cook off and there was plenty of room for various people to make different dishes without getting in each other's way. The location of the house is amazing as we spent a lot of time out on the beach and out on the patio by the fire pit. In addition to simply exploring the beach, we had fun watching our dog run around and playing in the water. We also had a great day of flying kites out on the beach. The fire pit became a nightly thing for my family as we made smores, had a hot dog roast, and just had fun spending time as a family. The owner is very responsive and easy to work with. A great example was that she texted me when the house was ready for check in which ended up being earlier then the agreed upon time. When not enjoying the beach or spending time relaxing there are a number of fun towns to visit and we found a lot of great places to eat by using Yelp app on our iPad. Some of the highiights: Port Gamble, Poulsbo, Kingston. In addition there are a number of great stores within short driving distance with great fresh produce/fish to allow for some awesome home cooked meals. Thanks again!


We rented this wonderful house because our son was getting married at a home a few doors down the road. We ended up having the most wonderful vacation in addition to the wedding. This house is just perfect!! Every inch of it is immaculate and beautifully decorated. It's so comfortable we just felt immediately at home. And as wonderful as the house is, the setting is even more fantastic. Indianola is charming and the house is right on Puget Sound. We thought we were only attending a wedding... we also ended up clamdigging, crabbing (YUM!!) kayaking, watching the bald eagle who visitied the house every day and just enjoying the views and serenity. Our 3 year old granddughter had a blast on the beach collecting shells. We plan to be back next summer. Thank you Debbie for sharing your house. We loved it.
