Beautiful Pickering is a stunning beachfront vacation rental retreat on 2 acres in Olympia, Washington.

Wake up to breathtaking views of Mount Rainier, wander the beach, soak in the hot tub, wrap up in a spa robe, and get cozy by the wood-burning fireplace. Cook on the gas stove, dine on the deck, breathe in the fresh forest air.

The retreat features a main house that sleeps 6, a studio cottage for 2, a two-car garage with laundry facilities, bayside lounge area with fire pit, and lots of beach.

Main house features include luxury sustainable plank flooring, stainless steel kitchen appliances, wood-burning fireplace, hotel-grade beds & linens, lush rugs, bold art, comfortable furnishings, and lots of cozy blankets & pillows, all within sight of Mount Rainier. The large attached deck has space for lounging and outdoor eating. Down a few steps to the garden you’ll find a hot tub shaded by old-growth Douglas Fir trees. Wander through the garden of native plants, or head to the beach to kayak, spot seals swimming, or wade in the bay. The studio cottage is a sweet space for 2, with a full kitchen, tiled shower, sleeping and living area, and an adjacent patio with bay views.
