"We have rented and traded homes for world travel for years, The Cedars on the Sound property is one of the best equipped and cleanest home we have visited. We are going to recommend it to friends and family."

"I almost hate to recommend this place as much as I'm about to. Don't want it booked solid next summer!
This beautiful home is far enough away to feel remote, yet close to Seattle and shopping in nearby West Olympia.
Among its many features:
*Stunning view, right on the inlet
*Immaculately clean inside and out
*Very well equipped - everything you'd need for a short or long stay
The owner was staying next door. She introduced herself, brought us a wonderful bottle of wine, and that was the last we saw of her. Not intrusive at all. The walk to the beach was down a flight of easy stairs. A landing above the high tide line held a canoe, a kayak and two chairs. The outdoor fireplace just outside the kitchen was perfect for late-night s'mores. Comfortable bedding, generously sized kitchen, plenty of parking.
Recommend Steamboat Grill and Greens (formerly Steamboat Annie's) for a quick take out meal. Also, Island Market for basic needs, even has fresh meat and produce. Both are less than two miles from the property.
Insider tip: watch walking out to the water at low tide...the soft mud can be like quicksand if you're not careful. Bring some sturdy beach shoes for walking over clam shells and barnacles. (Oh and don't be too attached to them if you know what I mean.)
Everything was exactly as advertised and more. Dealings with owner were pleasant and professional. Damage deposit refund processed promptly. I would most definitely return!"

"I had looked in Olympia to host a bridal shower for my best friend. After several properties never calling me back, Margaret responded within 12 hours and I couldn't have been happier. The view is spectacular and the home is so warm and inviting and you really just feel like you are at peace there. We had 30 people at the bridal shower and there was plenty of room. The layout was amazing and we were able to host the entire party in the back of the house that overlooks the sound. My friend had a magical time! We spent three days there and felt very comfortable and slept well. I would give Fernbrook my highest recommendation and cannot thank Margaret enough for responding to my email and helping me to give my friend an extra special day!"

"Our family of five was in Olympia for our Granddaughters Masters Degree graduation. This beautiful 4 BR home was perfect for us - each BR had it own bath, the whole house was spacious and superbly decorated. Large open kitchen with a large deck overlooking Olympia and Mt. Rainer - excellent for relaxing with an evening drink. The location as perfect - 15 min almost to anything local.
The owners were very gracious and accommodating - they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable an at home. We had the most gorgeous weather but Ed and Margaret cannot guarantee this !!!
SUPERB RENTAL PROPERTY"
