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.
