|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
Come to experience a luxurious stay on a beautiful lakefront home - lower floor - with own beach. The lake is fresh, clear, and clean with lots of fish for fishing activity on your own private beach. A peddle boat with life vests for your lake-touring pleasure are provided free of charge. Swimming is also one of the favorite activities while staying at the house. The house is within walking distant to a beautiful, green, and well maintained park with swimming area and large playground for the children.
Newly remodeled, you will find one queen-size-bed private bedroom, a bunk area - with 2 adult-size-bunk beds and 1 configurable-full-size-bed couch - which is joined with living room and dining room, a private bath with a spacious kitchen, complete with dining room and living room, both with the lake view. The house if furnished with high-quality furniture and appliances. Living room is furnished with brand-new large flat panel TV. Available washer and dryer for Guests stay longer than one week. Walk out your living room to a large deck to enjoy the fresh breeze and the view of the lake. There is a fire pit on private beach for a bonfire evening with friends, family, or business associates - given there is no fire ban. We got good reviews on different site. Will provide link upon request.
For leisure travelers, we are in the heart of the city with endless activities/attractions in or nearby cities; i.e. golf, skiing, ice skating, water activities, mountain activities, city activities, theme parks, etc... Or you could just sit in the deck or on the dock, reading books, and enjoy the green beautiful view and the fresh breeze that the lake provides.
For business travelers, we are also very close to big corporations such as Weyerhaeuser, Boeing, Alaska Air, etc.. Come and stay as a warm and cozy home away from home while attending businesses.
We are just 15 minutes south from Sea-Tac airport, and 20 minutes from downtown Seattle or downtown Tacoma - with bus stop is only a house away. The house is at the heart of Federal Way city and on Steel Lake. Close to numerous attractions, or secluded enough to just relax and enjoy the view and activities on the awesome lake for a few days - especially the magnificient sunset.
We love people. Our best reward is that our Guests have a great place to stay, and a great time while staying at our house.

Clean, beautiful Lakefront home with lots of flowers, quiet, secluded but have all conveniences that a big city offers.
Recently we stayed 5 nights at this rental with our 4 children. Kathy and Todd cheerfully met us when we arrived and showed us around. The house was clean and tidy and had every thing we needed. They were very helpful in directing us toward great restaurants, as well. Red Mill Burgers was fabulous! The landscaping around the house was beautiful and there were so many flowers, but the lake was the best! Our children spent most of the time in the paddle boat throwing breadcrumbs to tag-a-long ducks. It was a fun thing for them to do every morning and evening. During the days, we would travel the short distance to the city and do all sorts of fun things, and then come back to our serene little rental. The flight museum was only about 10 minutes away, and Pike's Market was easy to find in the city. One day we went to the beautiful beach, which was nearby as well. The house accommodated our family of 6 very well and we would definitely come back! Thank you, Kathy and Todd, for treating us so well and leaving us with a memorable family vacation! (And if you love Costco, there is one a couple minutes away!)
We stayed here for 3 days during spring break. We were very happy with our accomodations, and Kathy and Todd were excellent hosts. It was such a perfect location, being only 20 from downtown Seattle. The view was beautiful, and very relaxing. We would definitely stay here again.
We were there for 10 days as we were house hunting. Kathy was a gracious hostess and Todd was right there when we needed some help.
After a grueling day of looking at houses it was so nice to come back to the cozy Lakefront Home and unwind with a nice meal - brought in from a close local place (who felt like cooking.) We would relax by either watching one of our favorite shows or a movie on the wonderful up-to-date flat screen TV. If I had wanted to cook I could have lots of gourmet items available.
The view of the lake was awesome unfortunately we were there for business so did not have time to take advantage of the recreational items available -little boats toys etc.
We will certainly recommend the Lakefront Home to any of our friends who are coming our way
We had a fantastic stay! The home is private, cozy and perfect. We stayed for 5 nights and got to feel really at home. The location is close to Seattle, just minutes from many restaurants and attractions. Kathy was so kind, and she was always there if we had a question. The rental has a nice kitchen, charming bathroom and quiet master. Kathy has added lots of details as well. We would stay again and loved every minute!
We traveled to Seattle from Juneau, Alaska and found this rental on the VRBO. Our plan was to have Thanksgiving Day dinner with our five grandchildren, two daughters and their partners. We were able to cook this full meal in the kitchen provided. The coziness of the living room and the dining room allowed us all to eat together. I get cold easy and the place stayed nice and warm. The heat is on a timer so it goes down at night and it can get chilly but the flannel sheets kept us, and the two grandchildren, warm. We were gone most of the day but when we were there I do not remember hearing too much from upstairs. Kathy was very nice and offered to let us use the washer/dryer if needed.
I do recommend putting up at least one more motion sensor light as there is a stretch of the walkway that stays dark. We would come home late and the main house porch light was turned off. I would also recommend that this light stay on as it is pretty dark when you start your walk to the apartment. The view was great. I enjoyed having breakfast and looking out at the lake. Very relaxing. Kathy was very kind and provided good information about the area. I would stay there again. I did appreciate how clean the place was as my 15 month old granddaughter was going to be playing on the wood floor. The refrigerator was huge and held all of our food for our dinner. Thank you Todd and Kathy. From Georgia F./Juneau, Alaska

VRBO Review #9390335 “Unhappy”
I have read and re-read the reviews for this property and I'm not sure that they are legit. We recently rented this property for 16 days so my friend could recoup from a full knee replacement. Upon arriving we were taken down the stairs to the apartment. There were at least 14 rock steps. I immediately told todd that I didn't think these stairs were going to be safe for my friend. He put his hands up and proceeded down. Kathy was very nice upon meeting her but we were very concerned about the safety of the the steps. After visiting for over a half hour we were shown the apartment. We again expressed our concern for the steps and also that there were steps to get to the bathroom. Kathy just kept repeating " it be ok". She offered that she would give us half of the money back if we decided to not stay there. To make this short, we couldn't throw away so we stayed there. The owners were leaving the following evening and we were advised that because they were going to be gone for 9 days we would not have air conditioning nor have use of the laundry facilities. The average tempture was 85 and with the big windows and the sun shinning in all day it made the apartment even hotter. The bed in the bedroom had old flannel sheets on it and the bed squeeked with every movement. The leather couch was not comfortable to sit nor sleep on. The other couch was old and had no support. There was no extra bedding and the shower was so tiny. When the owners were home we could hear them walking around above us. It was not private. I am writing this review so that others are not disappointed if they rent this property. This is not a luxury rental unit. It is located in a beautiful location and close to Stores and eating establishment. The property outside was beautiful but some of the pictures are deceiving. The park is across the lake and you have to drive to it. They are located on a busy street with no sidewalks. The parking is not the best. On top of all this Kathy asked if while she was gone if I would water all her plants daily. (Which I did)! I don't recommend this property!
