House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 8

Come to experience a luxurious stay on a beautiful lakefront home with own beach and dock. The lake

is fresh, clear, and clean with lots of fish for fishing activity on your own private dock. Swimming

is also one of the favorite activities while staying at the house. A 3-person paddle boat is provided free-of-charge for your enjoyment. The house is within walking distant to a beautiful, green, and well maintained park with swimming area and large playground for the children.

You will find two bedrooms, a private bath with a spacious kitchen, complete with dining room and living room, both with the lake view. A

private laundry room with large size washer and dryer. Living room is

furnished with a large flat panel TV. Walk out your living room to a large deck to enjoy the fresh breeze and the view of the lake. Outdoor gas grill is provided for bbq and gather cooking. There is a fire pit on private beach

for a bonfire evening with friends, family, or business associates.

For leisure travelers, we are in the heart of the city with endless activities/attractions in or

nearby cities; i.e. golf, skiing, ice skating, water activities, mountain activities, city

activities, theme parks, etc... Or you could just sit in the deck or on the dock, reading books, and

enjoy the green beautiful view and the fresh breeze that the lake provides.

For business travelers, we are also very close to big corporations such as Weyerhaeuser, Boeing,

Alaska Air, etc.. Come and stay as a warm and cozy home away from home while attending businesses.

We are just fifteen minutes south from Sea-Tac airport, and 20 minutes from downtown Seattle or

downtown Tacoma. Close to numerous attractions, or secluded enough to just relax and enjoy the view

and activities on the awesome lake for a few days - especially the magnificent sunset. More

pictures will be sent upon request.

About Kathy Nguyen

We are aerospace engineers with great property on the lake. We love people. We love the view, the fresh breeze, the place. We want to share the awesome experience with you. We want people to have a pleasant, relax, and memorable stay at our properties.

Kathy Nguyen purchased this House in 2008

Why Kathy Nguyen chose Federal Way

We operated this property - along with property 7081394 or vrbo, property 171816 - with highest standard in all areas: cleanliness, comfort, view, relax, enjoyment and most of all with integrity. We had great reviews but due to our busy schedule, we stopped operating this property. We just now open it again for you to come and enjoy what a great life is about. New oven, new washer, new dryer, new gas grill, new furniture. Guests have the quiet of lake and park with all conveniences city provides.

What makes this House unique

Entire house - fenced and gated. Lake front. Great view of lake and park across the lake. Lots of flowers. Having private deck, and private dock. Out door gas grill. Paddle boat provided. Large and well kept park with settings for both adults and children. Fresh water beach near by - although you can jump directly from your own dock into fresh clean lake water. Fish. Wild life. Walking distance to park and to bus.

                                                                    Dawne S.

                                                                    It would have been a 5 if it wasn't for the couches in the living room. There really isn't a comfortable spot inside to just curl up, relax and enjoy the gorgeous view.

                                                                    Misrepresented listing - definitely not ADA compliant

                                                                    Brian M.

                                                                    The home was listed as ADA compliant. When we got there, it was missing basic infrastructure required of any home. No smoke alarms. No CO2 alarm. The bathroom was super small the toilet area was super tight, and in no way ADA compliant. The furniture was low quality, she charged us $250 for breaking a crappy fold-down couch. Only adults stayed there, so I'm sure we didn't break it. The cabinets were crappy quality, the overflow for the dish washer was improperly installed so the water came shooting out the overflow, into the sink. The walkway to the house is steep and uneven. The stairs to the water are super uneven. Poor quality maintenance of the house. I would definitely not recommend it.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    We made a check on “ADA Accessibility”, since property has new concrete ramp to the house. Nowhere did we state that it’s ADA compliant. Due to recent construction, contractor did not put back the alarms. We installed these alarms within minutes after your sister-in-law told us. The bathroom and toilet area are standard. No one complained about the size. You booked the property, but only your sister in law and your brother checked in and stayed. The minute your sister-in-law and your brother – who with onset of Parkinson’s disease checked in, we were contacted constantly from one thing to another, including his bath and her dinner. Using our own money, we even bought & installed a special toilet seat for his need, in addition to her dinner. On the fourth day, we offered a full refund so they can find somewhere else to stay since we couldn’t continue to support every-hour calls from her. She did not want to move, & promised to not demand so much. One week in, she had a houseful of people with several adults & children ranging from under ten to teens. This is a breach to contract but we didn’t make a fuss due to your brother’s condition. A week later, you came and let us know of the broken couch. We had a fully functional couch on the day that they checked in and several times during first 4 days, they & we sat on it. We paid over $700 for the couch 2 years ago. As for the dishwasher, it does wash the dishes. We disagree with your statement that the walkway to the house is steep and uneven. We had the ramp built for us when we retire and live on this property. The stair to the lake is for walk-able bodies to go boating. if the place is bad as you described, your sister in law wouldn't have asked to extend to stay one more week. We extended only two days for you since we already committed for someone else and need to keep our commitment.

                                                                    Beautiful property. Wonderful for the summer months, too.

                                                                    Tom C.

                                                                    Lovely setting, comfortable cottage

                                                                    Edith H.

                                                                    Four of us really enjoyed our stay at Kathy's cottage on the lake. The home is fully furnished and attractive as well as comfortable. My only problem was my unfamiliarity with the type of coffee maker and I did it wrong at first. However Kathy was just a phone call away and responded quickly. I would definitely recommend this place.

                                                                    Great home, convenient location

                                                                    Ruth and Dan S.

                                                                    We enjoyed our stay here -- the location was ideal for us, and convenient overall. Close to I5, and also close to lots of restaurants and shopping, but in a residential neighborhood on a beautiful lake -- and Kathy's roses are amazing. Kathy and Todd were helpful and available if needed. The bed was comfortable and it was a real plus to have a washer and dryer! If we return to the area we would definitely stay here again. Thanks to Kathy and Todd for making this home available!
