Excellent Location and Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

We weren't sure what to expect since we were unfamiliar with the area but we thought this was perfect for ourselves and our two kids. The house is situated high enough to get a great view of the water through the trees. The owners were so lovely and the kitchen was stocked with snacks and basics upon arrival. Overall, a wonderful place to stay and would highly recommend!

A beautiful place to stay for the holidays and our hosts were very helpful and gracious.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the holidays and the place was perfect! Our grandchildren were able to come visit and spend the night. Christmas day we had 8 over for dinner and the large dining table was great. We were able to have my Mother in law over too since it has a wheel chair ramp. She thought the place was beautiful. We definitely recommend this place.

Really comfortable, clean, spacious accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

The property was very beautiful, and had ample space for five people. The kitchen had all needed appliances and utensils, and there were extra sheets, towels, pillows, blankets, etc. the owners were very kind and helpful, and provided many documents about different tourist attractions, restaurants, and amenities in the area. We really enjoyed our stay at this place, and would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to visit the Seattle area.

WOW, just WOW

  • 5 of 5

this place is fantastic. my wife is disabled and totally accesible. owners provided a chair for the shower and indicated they had every imaginable thing she may need. place is just beautiful and the views of the porch were so awesome. loved having coffee on the porch and seeing the water. very quiet location and easy trip to Seattle. Joan and Jerry were spectacular, greeting us upon our arrival, providing any extra items quickly upon request. Jerry brought us some Irish bread (yum) and a tomato from their garden. not sure if i will stay at another VRBO in the future in seattle other than here. thank you for a wonderful stay

Stay here!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful, well equipped place! Joan and Gerry graciously provided snacks and bottle of wine making my arrival so welcoming. I can't think of anything the kitchen didn't have -- in fact the apartment was much better equipped than a home my brother's family rented! Big kitchen, huge dining table, a bedroom and two (!) Murphy bed's, a great patio. Very relaxing, yet luxurious!
