We were in University Place for a funeral and due to the circumstances we had family members arriving on different days from all over the US and other countries. The house was extremely accommodating for our extended family and all the friends that visited while we were in town. More importantly it allowed us to be together during this very difficult time. I recommend this home to any large group/family. It has everything that you might need to make your stay feel like you're at home.
We stayed at Fircrest for our Thanksgiving holiday this year, 2016. The home definitely holds 10 people comfortably, and we managed to have all the necessary cooking essentials, pots/pans/dishes/cutlery, etc., with 15 people eating over.....It could use more blankets for the beds, but overall it was a nice place and convenient to grocery shopping...and in a good neighborhood. The owner, Markus, was very helpful throughout our trip and delivered an apple pie and chocolate chip cookies that were amazing, thank you very much Markus!!
This was our 1st time renting a home for our vacation. We were impressed by the cleanliness and overall spaciousness of this home. I would recommend this home to anyone looking to rent in this area. It says it has room for 12 people and it really does. I would stay here again if the opportunity is right. Thank you!
My family and I stayed for four nights. The home is comfortable and inviting. The kitchen was fully stocked and had everything we needed. The beds were so comfy and everything was clean. Great house. Loved the neighborhood. We would definitely stay again.
