About The Owner

We are a semi-retired couple with a 9 year old son, and 2 grown married children with several grandkids. We love traveling, reading, photography, and excellent food. We enjoy comfortable surroundings, and have set up our home to reflect this. We hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this house in 1990

Why The Owner chose Kent

We chose this home for its close proximity to services, yet it has great privacy! This has been our family home since 1990. We have enjoyed the quite neighborhood, with all the birds, and geese sounds which make it very relaxing. We love hosting family parties for special holidays here and have had as many as 40 guests for Christmas. The Back Deck is one of our favorite places to hang out and relax. We really love attending events at Showare Center in Downtown Kent, and hanging out at Kent Station where there are many free music concerts on summer evenings, as well as several great restaurants. We love being within under an hour to so many fun activities and outings. The options range from state parks, such as Salt Water, Flaming Geyser, Sea Hurst and others. We love going to the Aquarium, Children's Museum, Pacific Science Center, Space Needle and the Childrens Theater in Seattle. We also Love Broadway Bound Children's Theater, which hosts several quality productions throughout the year in Seattle. In Tacoma, we love the WA State Historical Museum and the Museum of Glass. Boeing Airport also has a great Museum of Flight. There are so many things to do here! The Soos Creek Trail and Park are located about 10 blocks away on 208th St. and have a wonderful hiking trail and nature reserve where you can exercise and enjoy nature walks. Panther Lake has a public access that is on the backside about 3 blocks from our house. There is fishing there, and you can hang out by the lake. We often enjoy sitting on our window seat and looking out at the geese flying in to land on the lake. We are close enough to Sea Tac airport to be convenient, but far enough from the noise of the flight path.

Guestbook comments from the owner

9 golf buddies in Kent for a Golf Getaway. The house was a Great Spot! We would give it a 10. Easy relaxing on the back deck, plenty of space for sleeping and Relaxing. Everything we needed was provided. This was much better than staying at a hotel. There are several great golf courses in the area.

Wonderful Attentive Property Owners

  • 5 of 5
Our family loved staying in this home! We have a large family and were in WA for a niece's wedding. We found that the home was very spacious and was a great value for the number of guests we had. The per person charge for our large group was well worth the comfort of our family being together here and not in a hotel. The home was comfortable, and well appointed. Both the family room and front room have television, direct tv, stereo, kids movies and games available for use. The home and rooms were all very clean. The beds and furniture were comfortable, and the owners had an abundance of linens and towels for our use. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and more. The yard was large and well kept. The children especially loved the play-set, and we all enjoyed the covered back deck area which sheltered us from the rain. We had a nice BBQ there. We were recommended to this home by a friend who had stayed here before, and we contacted the owners directly. We were really pleased with the personal attention that the owners gave our family. They recommended several good restaurants that were close by, and they helped us find a perfect picnic spot for our family at a nice lakeside park a few miles North of Kent. They also helped us find a local hall where we would be able to have a dinner to accommodate the large number of guests we had. We would definitely recommend this property to our family and friends. The listing description is accurate and the pictures do not do the home justice. This property is centrally located to the airport, and was easy to get to. The grocery store is just a few block away as well as several small restaurants. It takes about 20 minutes to the airport and about 45 minutes to Seattle or Tacoma. There are many places to go and things to do all within 1 hour of here. The owners have provided a large book of information and flyers for guest information. We would like to thank the home owners for the use of their home and for making it so comfortable for our stay.

Wonderful experience in Seattle for a family trip

  • 4 of 5
We were in WA for children's summer program for 2 weeks, stay in the house had been such a wonderful experience. Children loved the playground in backyard, we enjoyed the convenience to Seattle local attractions, and quiet neighborhood. The house is very clean and just painted. The owner is very easy to communicate with and provided a lot of information on where we can spend our time.

Owner's Response: We have been very happy to offer our home to the many guests we have had over the past 3 years! We really enjoyed meeting with Cherry and her family and assisting them in any questions they had about the many diversions available in the Pacific Northwest. We were very happy that they enjoyed their stay at our home, and would love to host them again, if they should ever be in our area in the future. We really enjoy meeting people from different parts of the world, and look forward to hosting many more guests in our home. We strive to assist each group, and make their stay enjoyable.

My Worst Experience

  • 1 of 5
Here is my personal review and facts about my stay and maybe this will help you with your decision.

The listing was not accurate regarding the location, because the location is not made for large parties, only small parties.

The photos did not accurately reflect the rental's appearance and amenities, because it is smaller than it is portrayed to be.

The property was not clean and well maintained, because the plants and yard was a mess and the place had no AC when we got there.

The owner was not helpful in answering our questions and concerns, instead he wrote us letters telling us each afternoon what we did wrong. He was unable to approach us in person to discuss the matters, but instead came to irrational conclusions on himself in emails and letters.

I would not recommend this property to a friend or relative.

Owner's Response: We are sorry this traveler felt that our home is not for large groups. We are specifically set up for larger groups as we have a large covered outdoor living area on our back deck, a living/dining room area and a separate Family Room/ Kitchen area. Sleeping accommodations are set up as advertised for up to 18 people. We have a large home 2740 sq feet with 5 bedrooms all set up in different configurations to accommodate small and large groups. As a rule we only set up the rooms depending upon the number of people the reservations is for.

We have Professional Housekeepers that maintain our home before and after each rental as well as Professional Landscapers that maintain the exterior and yard areas. Our gardens are Cottage Style and are not severely manicured. We have a large back yard with playset for the enjoyment of families and their children, with a deck area of about 1000 square feet. As noted in our listing, we do not have built in Air Conditioning, due to the fact that the Seattle weather does not require AC for the most part. We offer and install portable A/C Units that we put in place as needed to cool our guests during heat waves. These were installed during this guest's stay as there was a heat wave that weekend.

We always try to answer any questions and or concerns for our guests as they come up. It is a shame that this guest had originally inquired about and agreed on a party of 5 guests. Then when we asked about the configuration of the bedrooms, we were informed there would be 10 on the day of arrival. This group actually ended up bringing in 21 guests which exceeds our capacity. We are sorry that they felt we were telling them what they did wrong when we asked for the actual number of guests staying at our home. They also felt we were irrational when we required them to pay for the number of actual guests staying in our home instead of the number we were told by them. Our home is set up for up to 18 people to stay and relax. Larger groups or parties can be arranged in advance in writing with us. The rates for our home are established to be fair for small groups as well as large groups with a base rate and then an individual rate per person.

We have greatly enjoyed meeting and accommodating guests from many areas and go to great lengths to make all of our guests comfortable and make their stay special for them. We will continue to do so.

Fit our needs perfectly

  • 4 of 5
Our 6 person team had a competition in Kent and this was the perfect alternative to staying in a hotel. We were all able to sleep in the same place and have family dinners together. The living area was large and the back patio furniture was super comfortable to sit in the sun and relax. When the satellite TV and internet were not working I emailed the owners and they took care of it in a timely manner. The owners are very friendly and easy to work with. Great communication with them. I would certainly recommend this place to stay.

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5
We were so fortunate to find this home to stay in the weekend of our son's wedding. It was roomy enough for our family and very comfortable, not to mention close to the church! A wonderful alternative to hotel rooms. The house is beautifully and comfortably furnished and the kitchen well-equipped. It's not often we stay in vacation rentals where the beds are as comfortable as ours at home. We're sorry not to have had the time or weather to enjoy the lovely patio. I would highly recommend the home!

Jim and Carol (Boeing family)

  • 5 of 5
We would reccomend this home to anyone. It had everything a luxury hotel could offer and room to spread out for a family! We had a pefect experience. Although during our overseas assignments with Boeing we had stayed in good hotels, Residence Inn type places and corporate housing this was so much better. Each of our adult children visited and stayed in private rooms. There were places for every person to relax and mingle as they wished.

We put on our family gathering for my Dad's 89th birthday. Beautifully equipped kitchen and supplies to spare made it a joy! This is a great home for a gathering. Provision is made for children and lots of extras were provided.

The owners were very flexible and easy to deal with. Amazing.

Everything was spotlessly clean, closets emptied, sparkling kitchen, room for all our stuff in every room. Hardly any personal things were left out to be careful of but a few books, toys, games etc. made the kids happy.. Fresh flowers, seasonal decor etc. made us feel pampered! There was even wood for the fireplace and pinecones too.

I would gladly rent here again and refer my friends. Outstanding!
