Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything that they said about this place is true, and much much more. The views are stunning from nearly every vantage. We had our wedding photography done there, and we could not have asked for a better day. The sneak peek photos are simply beautiful. We spent six nights there. Don & Kathy are very nice. They we're very accommodating to us, yet they were always respectful of our privacy as well. We are absolutely going to book another vacation there in the near future. We believe this place would be amazing even in winter weather conditions. The apartment has heated floors and a cozy fireplace to keep you warm while still being able to enjoy the views from the front room. The steam shower is also a great way to get the chill off after a chilly walk on the beach. We felt right at home there, and we even got a tad emotional upon departure. Thank you Don & Kathy for sharing your magical home with us.

Cozy relaxing getaway

  • 4 of 5

Don and Kathy have created a unique property! The space is not actually a treehouse, but an "apartment" built over their garage so it is elevated which gives you that amazing view of the water. The space has everything you need and is perfect for 2, however the sitting area also converts to a bed if you need to sleep 2 more. We enjoyed the gas fireplace, but their appears to be some kind of venting issue with that where you can smell the fumes after it's been running. The bed was super comfortable. The steam shower was an added bonus and something you don't usually get! The tile work and floor of the shower are beautiful. The sitting area was not supper comfortable for me, but I'm a smaller person, so it was quite deep and my feet couldn't touch the ground. I would've preferred a sectional or chairs, but I understand the need to do what they did there in order to provide additional sleeping space for more guests. We had some rainy weather while we were there, so be advised that the slate tiles on the deck get very slippery when wet! My husband also slipped and fell on the stairs which were also very slippery when wet, so maybe some kind of anti slip pads could be added to the stairs to prevent this? The grounds are beautiful and it's obvious much care is taken to keep everything looking lovely. There is nice water views with access to the beach for a stroll. We enjoyed our stay!

a lush and relaxing locale and accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

As always, Don and Kathy make our stay a delight! Lawn furniture is plentiful and we like to take 2 chairs to the very edge of cliff to watch the sunset. Steps down to the beach provide private places to walk and skip stones and collect shells and watch the birds.

The treehouse itself is well stocked and the steam shower (while it can be tricky to figure out) is a delightful way to end a day. Comfortable bed, all the kitchen supplies you need and a private deck to enjoy the views.

Don't come. we want to keep this all to ourselves!! ;)

Lovely

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful space with luxury finishings and a great view. The only thing that would make it better is if it was actually held up by a tree! We appreciated the cable tv and the internet as well.

great time as usual, grand kids(4 & 6) loved the convertable bed and the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Property is in great shape as usual. Don was there with his crew working on the landscaping but was not a problem, we spent most of our time on the beach and in town walking the water front. Tree house is just right for two adults and 2 kids. we will be back next year and will be looking into the property in Nicaragua for future vacations.

Lovely, quiet and romantic getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Talk about gorgeous views! The apartment was perfect and cozy for our weekend getaway from the big city. Kitchen has everything you need and the bathroom shower is very nice. We took walks along the beach and spent the afternoon on Lummi Island. The apartment is very close to the Lummi ferry, so this worked out perfect. Don is a wonderful and kind host. Apartment was clean and perfect for the two of us plus our dog.
