Guestbook comments from the owner

By Liz (olympia WA)

This house is perfect for a large gathering of people with diverse interests. Our fishermen fished each day (and CAUGHT a steelhead); our walkers went to the beach each day, and our cooks and sitters sat happily by the fireplace in the main room , cooking, reading and talking. New Year's Eve we sat around the fireplace and told stories -- and watched the fireworks from La Push (or maybe Rialto Beach?) which was a lovely little bonus!

Great location, home needs some TLC

  • 2 of 5

I have to say we had really positive interactions with the property owner and loved the location and the property. But there were a few disappointments. We had planned on using the kayaks on the listing included in the house, but owner said once we arrived that they were broken, which was too bad because we could have brought ours from home. The worst offense, I am afraid, was the smell of the house. It smelt like wet dog upstairs. The basement wasn't bad. The laundry room upstairs smelt terrible, I had to hold my breath in there...and the laundry room fridge was filthy - but the owner apologized for the fridge afterwards, I guess not realizing it hadn't been cleaned out after the last rental.

The second oven only heated on the bottom and wasn't usable and the hair dryer in the basement did not work. The house is large and sleeps 17 just as stated, just know that one of the basement bedrooms is just curtained off, no wall or door. The bathrooms were clean and the basement was clean, but there was a large hole in the wall in one of the bathrooms.

The rental fee is not that expensive, so I was expecting some of this - but there were things that could be fixed up pretty easy. I would say just make sure these things have been cleared up before you book.

The house has a ton of potential, big rooms upstairs to gather and a big table - just needs some TLC. The best parts were the fire pit and the river on the property which provided my kids with hours of fun skipping rocks. It was just beautiful. And the location was perfect. Right by 1st, 2nd and 3rd beach (2nd was my favorite) and just 45 minutes from the Hoh rainforest. And probably a million other awesome hikes.

Quiet views of nature

  • 5 of 5

Lots of large windows and a large deck make it a great place to relax and watch nature. We enjoyed watching the elk in the morning. I will come back to this house again. It was spacious even for our large group. It was clean and well furnished and had all we needed for our stay. When you drive up you can't tell how big it is inside. It looks very different from the pictures. I actually passed it, thinking I had come to the wrong place. The inside stairs may be a little slick. We had four people slip during our visit.

just what it promises

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views, plenty of space inside, close to beaches and rain forests, just like promised. Lots of birds, even cliff swallows nesting under the eaves (a little messy, but so amazing to watch the young ones being fed). Clean and welcoming indoors with huge windows to provide spectacular views. Our family loved our stay here and look forward to returning!

Family Fun!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time! The home was plenty big enough for our large group!! Kids were all well entertained with the variety of movies and games in the house as well as plenty of room to run outside. The adults were well entertained with just having enough space to relax for the weekend. The house was well stocked with all the linens you could possibly need, kitchen was well stocked as well with just about any dish or utensil you'd need as well. With the variety of things to do and places to see in the area we weren't bored at all. We had a great time watching the eagle in it's nest, the kids loved watching the horses in the field and we were treated to a herd of elk passing through our last morning. The weekend was wonderful and Byron was super nice and very helpful through the process of renting the house and staying in it. Thank you Byron!!
