About Michael and Holly

We have been hosting for over 20 years throughout the United States and Internationally. We love to travel to enjoy the world.

Michael and Holly purchased this studio in 2016

Why Michael and Holly chose Union

When we discovered the property, we saw the potential to enhance the property and to make it an enjoyable place to rest and enjoy and to make it a Haven.

We could not believe the direct water view and seeing some of the Olympic mountains during the sunrise and sunset. With all the Magnificent, Splendor, and Qualities of The Serenity that she offers, we decided to share it with our guests that appreciates the Beauty and enjoy what she has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dave, Amanda and Kona. Holly and I enjoyed meeting you guys and Kona and happy The Studio pleased and we met your expectations (next time we will exceed). We liked your comments and that was a twist on the Cons. When you guys are thinking about coming back, just let me know and I could put you on the calendar. We went up to the golf course and country club, we are going to eat there. I think we would go early so we could eat outside. See you again in the future. Thank you, Mike, Holly and CJ

Construction Site Vacation

  • 1 of 5

The photo for this rental made it look like it was next to the water not the highway. The construction next door was noisy and stirred up lots of dust and huge spiders. We even found another very large spider in our suitcase when we got home! We spent our vacation killing spiders and listening to a backhoe.

Owner's Response: For the intermittent noise during the stay and while you were on site, someone was doing yard work next door which may have stirred up a few insects, which we had no control over. The one picture on the website shows the water view is across the street from the Studio and it offers a direct view of the water. It's unfortunate that we were not given the opportunity to help with the complaint since no communicate was provided during the stay. Upon arrival, we mentioned if you need anything, please ask. Later, requests were made to assist with meal planning which we promptly met the requests.

A peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

The studio was great. Micheal and Holly are very detail oriented and it shows. The studio has an awesome view of the canal. The studio is a loft-style and set back from the main house. Completely private. Michael and Holly are easy to reach, super accommodating, and genuinely interested in making sure your stay is perfect. The best part though has to be the beach. Located on a natural oyster bed, fresh, clean oysters are available to you. We just pulled them up and grilled them on the spot. Kayaks are available, and swimming is good there too. Or just relaxing. After a stressful month, this was just the retreat my wife and I needed. Thanks so much Micheal and Holly, we will gladly return.
