About Donn Bennett
Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. My wife is a professional communicator who loves the great outdoors. I'm a musician and can bore you to tears rambling on about my favorite music. After much world travel, we think the Pacific Northwest is one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Donn Bennett purchased this House in 2017
Why Donn Bennett chose Pierce County
After living in the Pacific Northwest most of our lives we recently discovered the South Puget Sound islands. We fell in love with the hidden islands and their secret inlets. Anderson Island quickly became one of our favorites. It has the perfect combination of secluded natural beauty and just enough modern conveniences to make the perfect place to relax and enjoy all the Northwest has to offer. Conveniently located and just about 90 minutes from Seattle. We love our Anderson Island home!
What makes this House unique
The house is located on the beach right on the shore of East Oro Bay with the calmest waters on Anderson island, ideal for swimming, paddling and boating. Beautiful water and sunset views from the deck, bedrooms, lounge and hot tub. Great year round for a romantic getaway or family vacation.

Overall this is a gorgeous place to hang out, with a beautiful view and Mt Rainier visible a short walk along the beach. I’m sorry to criticise, but one should be aware that you cannot adjust the central heat/air temperature as it is locked up in a box. There are also signs everywhere telling you not to touch, move or handle household belongings. The heat pump or AC compressor ran most of the time and is next to the downstairs bedroom. One more thing is the renter is responsible for emptying all the trash in the house and taking to the dumpster on departure while paying a $200 cleaning fee. These are things as a renter that I would like to know ahead of time, hence this review. The owner was very responsive to any questions and there is a keypad for check in.
Awesome View & Beautiful Home
Thank you for sharing your beautiful waterfront home. When we had a problem with the air temperature it was solved immediately. Thank you.
Thank you so much, Jill! We had a new thermostat system that required a bit of a learning curve but you were a very understanding guest and we appreciate it!
Very happy to also hear you enjoyed the island wedding celebration as well!
We look forward to hosting your family at a future getaway.

Great place to stay, rain or shine!
Beautiful rooms and wonderful hot tub for colder nights!
Such a wonderful home on the water!
We thoroughly enjoyed this home! So many great things to say about it!!
It is right on the water- we used the kayaks and paddle boards DAILY!! Loved the hot tub also- and it was clean and worked great!
The home itself has been updated - beds were great and linens so soft! Bathrooms very nice as well. Also -I am a fuzzy blanket person, and often feel like VRBOs don’t have enough blankets available- this home had so many super soft blankets!! The home was clean and well appointed!
This is a perfect get away if you just want to sit back and relax! Not much to do on the island itself but we knew that ahead of time. Be sure and take all of your food with you- only a tiny store on the island-
Overall-this home was wonderful! We would absolutely recommend it and would stay again for sure!
Just what we needed!
A wonderful home base for just enjoying good company and resting. The bedrooms were very comfortable for two couples. The boats were easy to use for enjoying the water and the location was perfect in any weather. I loved the sitting area that felt like sitting on the front porch, but inside!
Beautiful Home and Location!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beach front home. It was extremely clean and comfortable with everything we needed for a great vacation! I would highly recommend this property!
Anderson Island is the southernmost island in the Puget Sound. Just under 8 square miles. You'll feel very secluded but there's lots to do on the island. Farmer's market on island at Johnson Farm (Saturdays 10am- 1pm) and Steilacoom (mainland) on Wednesdays (currently 3pm-7 pm), Historical museum, winery tours, trail and beach hikes, all sorts of water activities, golf, tennis, fresh and saltwater fishing, fresh and saltwater swimming. You'll see eagles, deer, seals, otter and heron. If you're lucky you'll see the orcas that frequently visit the south Puget Sound. Explore the island parks and preserves or just relax at the beach house. You'll find everything you need for a romantic weekend to a full family vacation.
