Lovely Break from the holidays

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time during the off week between Christmas and New Years. Kids loved walking the beach and looking for crabs since the rain held off for us. Nita's in town was perfect and we found the best castle-like playground to run off all the pancakes and French toast.

The house was so comfortable for two families of 4. Plenty of space for the kids to play games while the parents sat around the kitchen table talking and playing cards. Loved the lake views and all the birds during our morning coffee. We saw so many deer at dusk and plenty of wide open space for the kids to run around in the yard.

I must say, our family has stayed in two dozen or so vrbos over the years and this one has the most well appointed kitchen I've ever seen. They thought of everything for travelers that prefer to cook in house when vacationing with family and friends.

Great long weekend drive from Seattle for folks staying local.

We returned for a second time in two years.

  • 5 of 5

We found this property perfect for our family of 10. It is homey and comfortable, with everything we need available including all kitchen needs and quite a lot of play equipment. The big lawn is so nice for outdoor play and the bit of beach was good for our little boys to "fish".

Great house in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property can't be beat! The amazing view from the patio was wonderful. The furniture is comfortable. The area is quiet and peaceful. Neighbors aren't too close. We had a fun time playing badminton and catch on the lawn.

The house itself is nice and very homey with all the amenities. There were plenty of towels, supplies, blankets etc. The kitchen is very well stocked with appliances as well as staples/spices. We cooked up a storm and had no reason to leave!

The only complaint I have, which is not a reflection of the house, is that we were hoping to swim but the current is much too strong and the beach is very rocky. Oh also the mosquitos were really really bad as soon as the sun set so keep the windows shut.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This property is quiet and very comfortable with all of the amenities of home and a well stocked kitchen for those who like to cook! The decking and beach were our favorite spots to spend the day. Kayaking every morning, watching the abundance of wildlife with the ebb and flow of the tides! This Inlet community has done a superb job of keeping

the beach and water in pristine condition. The water is clear, clean and filled with sea life!

Great gathering spot!

  • 5 of 5

After more than 20 years of gathering on the peninsula for an annual family celebration I think we finally found the perfect spot to accommodate all our needs. Beautiful view and plenty roomy enough for our party of 9. Hosts were prompt and responsive in communicating, laid out everything clearly, and the place was in terrific order. We'll definitely be back!

Very relaxing and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The house is spacious, clean, well-kept and comfortable. It has all the requirements for an enjoyable and comfortable family get-together. The owner has all the right "fixin's" - though we didn't take advantage of some of them - like the barbecue grill. I had two elderly relatives along with us, and having 3 beds on the first floor with an available bathroom in the hallway was very convenient.

Our group was mostly a bunch of introverts, and this house was ideal for our R&R. We had the good fortune of great weather, and a lot of time was spent reading, listening to music and the birds or just gazing out at nature. The view from the patio was peaceful, and the entire gang enjoyed watching the coming and going of the tides, at all times of day and night. The patio chairs in the house were very comfortable for long sits!!. Several took long walks along the beach during low tide. It was very quiet where we were, and the neighbors were unobtrusive.

We did happen to witness a bald eagle have a mid-air tangle with a crow that was harassing it. Much to our astonishment and delight, the eagle did a 180 in mid-air, and slashed out at the crow with its talons. Wow - never seen an eagle do that! Didn't think they were that agile.It all happened too quick to film, so its just burned into our memories. We would have missed it, if that patio hadn't been that comfortable to be on...

The town of Shelton has a good vibe to it, and the Safeway there is well stocked and friendly, and only 11 mins away. So we cooked as we felt, and could just go to the Safeway and get what we needed, when we needed it. Very convenient.

Overall, a very restful and relaxing weekend for all.
