  • Cute place in a great location

    "Well set up to enjoy the lake. Lots of water toys, fun game room in the garage, kitchen had lots of spices, plenty of bedding, towels, etc. Felt like the owners wanted to make sure you had everything you needed to enjoy...and we did! We'll likely be back for summer fun."

  • Oakbay Dream House

    "This was our 4th time at this house and words cannot describe how beautiful and serene the house is! We brought our children and grand children for a relaxing week of enjoying the magnificent views. A bald eagle visited every morning. David and Kim have equipped this place with everything you would need during your stay and are very prompt in responding to your every need. We were very sad to leave it and can't wait to go again. We highly recommend Oakbay for the perfect vacation!"

  • Beautiful small modern ßtudio

    "Real nice little spot. The spacious design made It seem much larger. Simple, but with everything you need. Recommended for Yoga enthusiasts, the hardwood(ish? may be composite, w/e) floor and big window with stunning view had me dreaming in the clouds. And in the islands. And the inland sea. Less than 10m drive from cute downtown Fairhaven. Just off the Interurban trail, great for runners or multi-terrain cyclists. Real quiet, only slight road noise from chuckanut and the deep gentle thrumming of the train rolling past, which I found enchanting."

  • Great Family Get-together house!

    "Wonderful roomy house, clean and comfortable, perfect for our extended family's wedding pre-festivities. Super variety of kitchen equipment, even large pots, small appliances, baking equipment, coffee bean grinder, elec skillets, gas BBQ, etc. Great activities for families on site (games, play equipment, etc.). Shopping and restaurants are less than 5 minutes away. Only minus is that the house is very dark inside -- many light bulbs in the massive fixtures were burned out and the dark wood interior makes it difficult to do anything indoors on a cloudy day. Would suggest that you bring your own reading lamps, and flashlights for moving around after dark! Renting was carefree and agents provided detailed info before our stay, making it easy to plan what to bring. Would recommend for any large group needing a stay in the Shelton area."

Southeast Travel Tips

Traveling to Southeast Washington Vacation Rentals

Most people are familiar with Seattle as being the main entry point into Washington State. Indeed if you are traveling from the East Coast, Canada or another part of the world, Seattle will be your first point of entry into the state. The Seattle Tacoma International airport has good air links with most major cities in North America and the Far East. There are regularly scheduled flights on most major North American airlines. From Seattle, it is possible to drive to the southeast region of Washington but it is a fair distance that will take several hours. If your travel budget allows, one of the better options would be to get a domestic flight to Spokane. Spokane is a regional airport located in the far eastern region of Washington and provides easy access for travelers to that part of the state. The main metropolitan area is around Richland, Kennewick and Pasco. This is approximately 100 miles south of Spokane. Once again, if flying in, you will need to rent a car upon arrival to get to your destination.
