My wife and I stayed here with our 18 month old baby for about 2.5 weeks. We had a great stay!
1. The house was as-advertised, or in many cases better than advertised. We had everything that we needed, from towels to kitchen utensils to cable TV/internet to etc. etc. It had many nice-to-haves that I did not expect, such as a french press coffee maker, blender, front and rear patio / garden, and so on. In general, the finishes of the house were beautiful and amazing.
2. The house was VERY child-friendly. We made great use of the high chair, stroller, and the pack&play crib that was all provided. A huge plus when traveling with a baby!
3. The owner was very responsive. I couldn't get the upstairs second bathroom tub filler to turn on, and she answered the phone on the first ring and walked me through something that I missed. She was also very responsive in refunding me the security deposit, which is an area that I've had problems with in the past renting from VRBO.
4. The location is great! Views of the Puget Sound from the living room is, incredibly, better-than-advertised. It's also very close to downtown Queen Anne, and we enjoyed taking walks there with our baby.
Cons: Nothing that I can think of! I can only think of one random minor annoyance, which was that I could never figure out how to properly set up the gates (which the house provided) in the stair hall. There were a couple gates in the closet, but none of them seemed to fit the stair hall width. It's possible that this was my fault and I just wasn't setting it up properly.
Overall, it was a fantastic stay. I'm grateful to the owners for the great experience, and look forward to returning in future summers!
