A stay that far exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Federal Way to visit family in the area. We could not have picked a better place to spend our time in the Seattle area. The home, and I must say home, because our hosts, Joan and Gerry Mullen made us feel like we were at home, was well located, extremely clean, and well equipped. Even though only my wife and I stayed here, given the large size of the living area, we were able to have family over almost every evening for meals and visits. I also enjoyed morning coffee in the flower garden. I just cannot say enough good about our stay here. We hope to make a return visit in 2018.

Perfect!!

Nothing bad to say! Owners provided snacks and some staples to get us started. Also provided toiletries in bathroom. Much better than a hotel. Will stay here in the future if we ever come back.

The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. The pictures and descriptions were accurate.

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted when we arrived. Everything was ready for us. The hosts left detailed instructions, as well as nearby attractions. Since we were traveling with and visiting grandkids we called for more information to make sure the attractions were kid-friendly. The hosts were more than willing to assist us and answer our questions.

We had an infant with us and they provided a baby bath for us. The kitchen was well-stocked. The home was very clean and well-taken care of. The gardens were beautiful. It was very quiet and peaceful there. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone needing a comfortable, clean, and quiet place to stay. Stores and shopping were nearby as well. We had a fabulous vacation there.

Just as pretty as the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as pictured and described. The Homeowner's were as nice as could be, providing good information and lots of extras. The setting is perfect and provides a refreshing change from the busy summer crowds. Wish we could have stayed longer, and look forward to a return to this ideal spot.

Wonderful view, very comfortable and safe.

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a great location. The house is fully equipped from kitchen supplies, linens, and more. The owners made my infant daughter and I feel safe and supplied us with a high chair and pack in play for her to have a safe place tot sleep. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Seattle.
