                            I would like to take the opportunity to let you know how much my family enjoyed our staff at Wisteria Hallow and the Cottage-by-the-Sea. Our entire family enjoyed kayaking and the peaceful walks along the shoreline. The views were fantastic. Our family enjoys taking vactations together each year and this years vacation will be remembered for a long time.

                            If you want to get away from the city then this is the location for you (~2 hours from downtown Seattle). The property itself is beautiful. Every morning we sat on the back porch to enjoy the view of the bay and seals on the dock. We picked blackberries and apples and made some wonderful homemade desserts. It was nice having the kayaks so we could see more of the bay. We also enjoyed watching the raccoons that came every night and sat right outside the living room window. The house could definitely use some TLC. Don’t really consider the room where the single beds are located a “loft” but rather an attic. Whenever we turned on the water there was a strong odor of sulfur. The advertisement mentions a grill in the kitchen; if you use it then you will be charged extra for cleaning. The outside patio area was not swept/cleaned prior to our arrival. One of the ovens had a moldy pizza in it while the other had dirty used foil. The window treatments were dirty and the mantel very dusty. There were light bulbs missing in different rooms and some of the dishes in the kitchen cabinets were dirty. The frig and freezer were dirty and the frig had a leak. As a whole the kitchen was a huge disappointment as far as cleanliness was concerned. For all the rules they give you on this house you would think that it would be immaculate. Overall, our family had a great time and enjoyed the vacation but we would not stay at this home again. Tranquility Vacations apologized and refunded us our security deposit plus $100 from our cleaning deposit.

                            Recommended for: Sightseeing, age 55+, families with teenagers, adventure seekers.

                            Manager response: We have let our cleaning people go and have new staff. Thank you for the information.

                            This home is perfect for a large family. The kitchen is a chef's dream with more than enough room to have the whole family cooking at one time. The view is spectacular and the house is well maintained. The house is worth the drive and provides a quiet atmosphere to relax and unwind.

                            This property provided an excellent site for a family reunion. It has great views of Puget Sound and cozy, light, elegant architecture in the main house and cottage. The grounds were well maintained and colorful. You can paddle kayaks out into the sound and get an awesome view of Mt. Rainier. It got rave reviews from other family members of all ages. The only drawback were the small beds in the attic rooms in the big house and the heat in those rooms when the outside temperatures were in the 80s or 90s (there is AC in the house but not up there). They cooled down at night but that took a while. With normal temperatures outside these are are a good place for the kids to hide out and play games.

                            My family of five (plus a friend) stayed at this home -- and we had various family members drop in and out during our visit. I can promise you that the pictures don't do it justice. The property is stunning -- the views almost unimaginably beautiful and peaceful. We could kayak out in the morning, visited by the occasional sea otter, come back and laze on the lawn, or cook a meal in the fantastic catering-grade kitchen -- supplemented by the wonderful farmer's markets that dot the area in the summer. It is a bit of a haul from Seattle -- but worth it. Plenty of room, lots to do -- or not do. Really beautiful. Enjoy!

                            A good vacation spot with a few details needing work. The large grounds are a nice bonus, great for large family or other gatherings. My family stayed for a week, and overall the home was fine, but a few details were irksome. We used all three homes, the main house, the cottage and the apartment, so that amounted to 20 people. The grounds were great, but for some stupid reason the sprinklers were set to go off every night at 5:00 pm AND in the middle of the night. That made relaxing on the grounds or playing croquet or volleyball a bit of a risky venture. Also, with 20 people to feed, we found the kitchen of the big house big enough to cook in, but the details were lacking. We had one small baking dish and too few plates and bowls. We had to borrow heavily from houses down the street just to cook and eat a meal. This was a pain. One would think that a house that could sleep 12 would come with enough equipment to feed the occupants. Finally, one of the main house 'bedrooms' does not actually close off, so the occupants must listend to the living room conversation until late at night, like it or not. This is not stated or shown in the pictures, so was a bit misleading.

                            Manager response: The main home, Wisteria Hollow does sleep 12 people in beds. It does have dinner plates, salad plates, glasses, mugs, cereal bowls and all silverware for 18 -20 people--in just that home. The other 3 homes-one across a small country lane, and the Cottage-right next door--have additional dinnerware. The third bedroom does have a small, window size opening over the top of the stairway, that does not close off.
