My husband and I bought our beach home because we love being on the water. We are sailors, and have a sailboat that we bring to our property, and park on our bouy which is right in front of our home, when we are there, during the summer moths. We decided to share our home with VRBO renters after a very successful experience with our West Seattle VRBO RENTERS. We have 24 reviews, and all 5 star. Please refer to listing number 399739 to get reviews from our recent vacationers at West Seattle. Since we have just listed our Longbranch home, we hope these reviews will give you an idea of how we maintain our homes, as well as our character. We do strive for our vacationers to have a memorable private, and enjoyable family vacation.

Scott VandeZande or Jan Place purchased this house in 2010

The sense of peacefulness, quiet, and beauty of the northwest surrounds us while staying at our home. The incredible sunrises, as well as when the sunsets, bring a warm orange cast on the snow capped Mount Rainier throughout the year.

Our home has been completely remodeled, so all appliances are new, including remodeled baths, new carpet, and a beautifully decorated, comfortable home, that most would not consider a beach home, but instead, a beautiful home at the beach. The wall to wall windows provide an incredible view from nearly every room. For summertime, there is a large deck with gas grill, as well as a fire pit for roasting marsh mellows. Just steps away to the beach for kayaking, and swimming.

REALLY ENJOYED OUR STAY

  • 5 of 5
My brother, father and I spent the July 4th weekend and had a fantastic time. The weather was great and so were the views. We used the gourmet kitchen each night and ate on the deck overlooking the water. We used the fire pit each night as well. The fireworks show by the neighbors and others across the bay was the best I've ever seen. Our time was relaxing and perfect for our get together. We drove in to Gig Harbor one day for lunch and the drive was not bad. This is a very nice house with a great location and view.

LOVELY HOME

  • 5 of 5
beautiful home, modern furnishings and very well stocked. we had a wonderful time staying here, it reminded us of the reason we love the Key Peninsula so much, with it fabulous views, terrific neighbors and the quiet tranquility. This home not only is well furnished and clean but the décor is warm, comfortable and inviting, we felt right at home.

WELL-RESTED VISITORS FROM NEBRASKA

  • 5 of 5
This place has great Karma. My family and our little dog all had a relaxing time here. The house itself is very tastefully decorated. There are lots of soothing colors, crisp fabrics, lots of tile and all the modern conveniences. A bright red door welcomed us amid attractive landscaping. There is a large back deck and easy access to the beach. We spent lots of hours in the mild temperature watching the water and the skies. Just when we though nothing could be more beautiful, the water would move, the clouds would lift and Mount Rainier was visible in all its splendor. The kitchen is very user friendly and well-stocked. The very large table allows a great place for family meals or puzzle assembly. Although we did not partake, we thought it nice that local wines were available for purchase in the pantry. Pat also provided lots of tourist info pamphlets that helped us find fun places to visit in the area. There is a nice pottery shop where I bought a clever microwave egg cooker, and we bought a lavender plant at the lavender farm near by. There are a few grocery stores and restaurants to take advantage of but the property is certainly a place one can get away from the busyness of the city.
I and my family give this lovely vacation home 5 stars. The ambiance, ease of booking, cooperative nature of the owners, the truly "pet-friendly" nature of the place made ours, a most enjoyable "get-away"!

PERSONAL OASIS FROM FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
As a former travel agent, I really wish I could give this experience 10 stars! Just beautiful, from the gorgeous view, peaceful surroundings, lovely interior, beautiful glass pieces, wonderful fire pit, to the very comfy beds. It was my first experience with VRBO, and Jan is such a delight to work with. Any and all of my questions and concerns were answered promptly.
We were attending a family reunion in Tacoma, and it was so nice to slip away at night to a place of our own. We were also traveling with a toddler, so a hotel wasn't much of an option--long story short, this was the perfect spot for myself, husband, 2 daughters, son-in-law and granddaughter. The grocery store in Key Center, had everything we needed to make lunches to take on our adventures in and around Key Pennisula. The kids enjoyed canoeing, hiking in the nearby state parks. The moon rising over the sound is spectacular! If you believe in karma, you will definitely find it here.
Note: Know in advance that every time you go to Tacoma the toll is $5.25, we knew that so it was no
surprise. Also there is a State Salmon Hatchery nearby that is very interesting and the fresh and smoked oysters from Minter Creek are absolutely to die for..
This trip went from a must do family reunion, to a beautiful retreat the minute we entered the property.
Thank you Jan and Scott for sharing your beautiful home! Shelley

Owner's Response: Thank you Shelly for your stellar review! It is my goal to have things just right for my vacationers. All the beds are new, and very comfortable, the kitchen very well equipped, and the view of Mount Rainier is truly spectacular, which makes our home a great VRBO.
Thank you for leaving the house as clean as you left it. You were a great
Guest, and I hope you can return some day.

BEST VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Since Dale & I are both from Tacoma we come home several times a year to visit friends and family, but it never feels like a Vacation. This year we decided to rent this beautiful home and have friends and family come see us. We have never felt so comfortable and relaxed as we did sitting out on the deck with our morning coffee to our glass of wine by the firepit in the evenings.Even our friends and family who came to visit didn't want to leave. The view from the master bedroom,kichen and living area was breathtaking the 11 days we spent there. It was hard to leave and have to come back to reality.Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!!

BEAUTIFUL VIEW

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful views, gorgeous and well-appointed home. Extremely well stocked kitchen.

Only minor hitch was getting cable to work, but got information from the owner to be able to make a tech call to the cable service #. Also, dog hairs in the pull-out couch.

Mt. Rainier made a fleeting appearance early on our last morning. Evanescent.

Map

Just steps to our beach, and minutes from our home is a boat launch. We have a bouy in front of our home, where you can tie your boat. Or if you prefer, there is a Marina in Fulicy bay, just a mile from our waterfront home. Penrose State park is minutes away. There is a local winery for those that enjoy wine tastings. Side trips to Olympic National Park, Hood Canal, Mount Rainier, Mount Saint Helens, Port Townsend, Olympia , Seattle, Bremerton, and Gig Harbor are all points of interest. During the summer there are many local festivals. During the month of August we have delicious blackberries, pears, and plums growing on our property.
