The house is overall excellent. While nestled in the suburbs of Seattle the lay of the land provides privacy. Awoke each morning to a outstanding view of Pugent Sound, Whidbey Island, and snow covered Olypmic Mountains. The hot tub was nice and the kitchen was generally well stocked for a family of foodies. The owner was attentive when called when the hot tub did not work. The only downside is that it is 17 or so miles from downtown Seattle. That said it is a good launch point for day trips to Olympic National Park, The Cascade Mountains, Bellevue WA, etc.
