"Close enough to use technology but far enough away you won't want to".


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.

'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.

ACCOMODATIONS

* BEACH CABIN - 2 Bed & 1 Bath (1,000 sq. ft.)

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.

    We spent four lovely nights at Giggle Fish. Everything was perfect and a place that I would recommend to family and friend. We had to make a trip back to the property as my son-in-law left his keys. Derrick was so helpful in contacting the house keeper who made a special trip to get us the keys that she had hidden in a safe place. Nordstrom service with a smile.

      Thanks James for the wonderful 5 Star Review. We are happy to read you enjoyed Giggle Fish on the Hood Canal and that you would recommend to family & friends.

    Very clean home - inside and out on beautiful Hood canal. Comfy beds, well stocked kitchen and nice outdoor areas. Our family of 4 used it as our home base to explore the area and the beautiful Olympic Peninsula. There are so many great areas to explore - loved our hike to Lena Lake. If you like oysters don't miss the nearby Hama Hama Oyster farm down the road.

    Our stay at Giggle Fish was very enjoyable. Nice furnishings both inside and out. Cute touches like fresh flowers in the bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchen. Very comfy beds with quality linens. Really nice to have the two kayaks for our use. It was beautifully sunny the say's we were there and the upstairs bedrooms became VERY warm. There were fans in every bedroom, but the lack of air conditioning was a issue. Also - being so close to Hwy 101 made for a lot of traffic noise.

    • Manager Responded on 7/21/2017

      Thanks Anita for the great review. It was a pleasure having you as our guest and most importantly you were happy with the home and all of the little touches the owners have done to it. We recommend leaving the shades down during the evening as that will help keep the home cooler. Enjoy the rest of your summer and we look forward to having you back again sometime soon.

    We Loved this place right on the Hood Canal. Went Kayaking which 2 are provided and very easy back and forth up and down the Mountain to Lake Cushman. We chose this place because of its proximity to the turn off and you have cell and internet service here vs. being up by Lake Cushman where you have none (not to mention being able to put older kids out in the boat house if needed - YES!) Very clean place, relaxing and will return again another time. Thanks GiggleFish!!

    We were a party of 6 adults- this home was perfect. An extremely well appointed kitchen. The furniture was very clean and comfortable (so much so that I emailed the manager to find out where they got the couch :)). We had fires most nights outside. Just missed seeing a mama have her baby seal on the dock next door and watched them take their first swim. The beds were very comfortable and the laundry on site was a plus. Suggestions would be more towels (1 per guest). There is no a/c but the weather was cool and sleeping delightful. The views were like nothing this Florida girl has seen.

    We stayed at the Giggle Fish house with 2 other couples and had an amazing time. The house is very well decorated and equipped, and the view is fantastic. The location from downtown Hoodsport is perfect, far enough away to be quiet, but a quick drive if you need anything. I highly recommend this home, it was perfect for our visit!

    Jeffrey E from Canton, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Our stay in the Giggle Fish home was the highlight of our Pacific Northwest vacation. Our family loved the beautiful views including seals and the cute little 1 bedroom boat house. We collected oysters on the beach and the kids loved the kayaks. The owners have made the most of their amazing outdoor areas -- lounge chairs, outdoor sitting areas, and a great firepit. Gigglefish is simply wonderful! We had a bit of confusion with the housekeeping at checkout but the management company resolved it quickly.

    For those planning to make Gigglefish the base for their explorations of Olympic National Park, although it is a beautiful location, it is 3-4 hours drive from the Olympic Nat'l Park highlights (Ho Rain Forest and Hurricane Ridge). There are some Olympic NP trails within a 15 minute drive, but to get to the north or west side of the park is a very long slog.

    Choose Giggle Fish if you want to experience what relaxed Washington 'coastal living' is like.

    • Manager Responded on 7/7/2016

      Jeffrey, Thank you for your glowing review! To clarify, the South “Staircase” entrance of The Olympic National Park is just up the hill from Giggle Fish (WA-119). It’s really too bad they didn’t know. It’s beautiful. The guest information book on site has all this information. We’re also available anytime. Vacation Rental 365 - Derek

    We go out annually to Hood Canal. Usually we stay in a family cabin but this year we were having an anniversary so several of us found other properties to stay in. Giggle Fish offered a very comfortable house in a great location for our group. Plenty of room for the kids to move about and Grandma loved the boathouse cabin. We did the things we usually love at Hood Canal: kayaking, hiking at Staircase, easy grocery shopping and looking around Hoodsport and just sitting by the water enjoying every moment. Giggle Fish had everything we needed and more to have a great, relaxing time!

    We had a wonderful time at Giggle Fish last weekend. The layout of the large house was perfect for our friends' needs and the boat house was fantastic for us with our small dog. We really loved the fully fenced yard and access to Hood Canal. Digging for oysters during low tide and swimming in high tide were the highlights. We really enjoyed the fire pit at night. The decor was perfect; not too much clutter or anything for busy little hands to disturb. Manager was easy to reach and very responsive. Highly recommended, we'd stay again.

    a guest from Sherwood, Oregon recommends this vacation rental

    The house and boat house were a great space for our family retreat. Beds were very comfortable and everything was clean. The kitchen was well stocked with just about everything you might want.

    We took advantage of the grill and the fire pit outside. We used every sitting area at one time or another: by the fire, on the deck, inside on the sectional couch (the only uncomfortable seating in the house) and both the inside and outside dining areas. We did notice the road noise from Hwy 101, however, it was offset by the gorgeous view and experience of being right on the water.

    One great advantage was the closeness to Lake Cushman, Lake Kokonee and, of course, Hood Canal right out the door. We brought our own kayaks and made excursions everyday.

    “The place was cute and comfortable and had everything we needed for our weekend get away. Loved the fact that we could kayak and enjoy. We had bald eagle, blue Heron and the bounty of seafood we gathered and enjoyed. The deck was a great place to hang
    out and play games and dine...plus the warm sunny days we had were a bonus! The place was cute and comfortable...the pictures do not prepare you for how cozy (small) the main house is...I expected the boat house to be small. The sink issue in the boat house
    was bothersome!!! Loved the fact that we could kayak and enjoy e wildlife and the bounty of seafood we gathered and enjoyed. Not happy with e fact that our rental agreement indicated that additional guests could stay "for a small fee" each night, yet I was
    told that we could not have additional people so our cousin could join us overnight Saturday night as we had 6 people already there...but we enjoyed the day with her!!! We love the hood canal and we will go back...we will check out bigger places however, as
    we usually have a larger group!!!

    Trevor B from Archer, FL recommends this vacation rental

    We entered the Giggle Fish cabin very late since our flight was delayed (1am). In the darkness, with all the windows closed, it seemed tiny. And then we figured out that there's only one bathroom in the main cabin for two couples. Uh oh. And no A/C (we're from FL, so that just seems wrong!). I was worried that we might have made a bad decision. When morning broke, and we opened the blinds and explored the outside. The wrap-around deck invited us to extraordinary views of the water. Things were looking better. Then, we checked out the boat house. Another (small) bathroom! That helps, even though it's a short walk across the yard. When we walked down to the "beach" next door and picked up fresh oysters the size our your hand, we were sold. Turns out, you don't need A/C in Hoodsport, and we didn't hang out inside at all, other than to sleep. The deck is really your home at Giggle Fish.

    TIP: wear some old sneakers or water shoes to walk out during LOW tide to get the best oysters. It's all-you-can-eat oysters that would cost you $2 a piece at a restaurant! Pick the ones that are always in the water (as opposed to the ones that are exposed during low tide).

    The guide book was very helpful. We went on the short hike to the waterfall and loved it.

    All-in-all, Giggle Fish delivered as promised.

    Great location, great property! Hope (pooch) enjoyed the fenced in yard and rolling in the grass! Fun to watch seals, eagles, and even a pod of dolphins!! Very comfortable house and grounds enjoyed in the sunny weather.

    Cheryl A from Portland, OR recommends this vacation rental

    This was a family weekend and Giggle Fish was a great place to gather. The weather ranged from rain showers to blue skies and the views from Giggle Fish captured it all. The house was cozy and well decorated. The yard is fully fenced making it safe for our dog. The grocery store in Hoodsport is fully stocked. Make time to visit Owly's- a wonderful vintage store in Hoodsport. Hiked to Lena Lake, Giggle Fish is a perfect place to access trails and waterfalls. If you don't want to venture out, you can gather oysters and kayak right from the house. Totally relaxing weekend. This would be a five star rating if not for the traffic on 101 but that is true for all the houses along the water in this area.

    Loved our stay. We would highly recommend trying to resolve the low water pressure issue. We made it work but others may not be as tolerant. Beautiful home and location right on water. Would rent again.

      For those who are reading this review the owners have just resolved the water pressure issue. Thanks Sally for the returned visit. I'm happy to read you enjoyed your stay and thought the home was beautiful. Most importantly would rent it again. VR 365 Derek

    The boat house was not as clean or well decorated as the main house and there were no towels waiting for us.

    Some suggestions would be: smaller glasses in the kitchen for juice, wash cloths & hand towels. A mirror in the boat house (other than in the bathroom).

    • Manager Responded on 10/22/2013

      Thanks Deedee for the great review! Our guest feedback is very important to us as we strive for perfect 5 star reviews! For those who are reading our owners have recently made some nice interior improvements to the main cabin and boat house decor. Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to have you back again sometime soon. VR 365 Derek

    Louis S from Branford, CT recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    Amy W from Auburn, WA recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    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!

    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 :)
