Recent Washington State reviews

  • Great location, flexible owners

    "This home could easily be amazing, but we had a mix of good and bad during our stay.. all in all the owners did everything they could to make it right and we appreciate that. For us the home was smaller than it appeared online with 4 rooms/bedrooms, the last of which was recently converted from a garage. While there are extra beds, the size of the common areas would make it difficult for more than one family to stay comfortably. This home is the guest house to the main house next door that rents for around twice as much. Our biggest disappointment was upon arrival and the home had not been cleaned, floors dirty with food spills in the kitchen, dining room and used soap and wash cloths in the shower. I spent half the first day cleaning and would've thought someone was still living there, shoes in the closet etc. The owners apologized and explained they had tried a different cleaning crew and we came to an agreement on compensation. Much of the home is older and in need of more updating, the kitchen and accessories especially, some worn furniture, carpet and peeling wallpaper etc. The tree swing outside was a favorite but the tree is obviously dead and I wonder when it'll become a hazard. Old food and used toiletries need to be removed in my opinion. While the main bedroom has beautiful views and large windows you have to use plywood covered with stapled sheets to block out the light. One of which regularly falls down. This all was very unexpected for the weekly price point. The location for us though was perfect, directly in between my family members homes, the house a much better option than the local hotels, about 45 mins to Seattle... I would've appreciated a welcome packet explaining the rules of the lake and things like grocery stores. For example, we rented jetskis and they gave my 14yo a permit, after being stopped by the boat police, we found out that Lake Sawyer has a 16 year and over requirement for personal watercraft. When I thought of this vacation more like camping, all the little things didn't matter. The lake was absolutely beautiful, my kids liked feeding the baby ducks and using the kayaks, there's a nice mix of games and movies to use, wifi and netflix. We really had a great trip and overall enjoyed our stay."

  • perfectly peaceful

    "The listing photos could not do justice toward the peaceful and serene setting of this home. Great views, nice beach, comfortable and clean home. Wonderful deck. Good roads around the island for walking, bicycling or driving. We are already looking into returning next year."

    "This was a wonderfully kept place. My wife and I met my college friends for a wedding. It was conveniently located for the event, and you cannot beat the views. We all highly recommend the Champagne Chalet."

    "We had a wonderful time at your home. The setting is lovely and your home is beautiful. It was great for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. My only concern was that some things need to be maintained... doorknobs falling off( I was worried about the girls staying in the cabin), leaking fridge to clean up, some broken metal on the shared bathroom downstairs, broken bi-fold doors in other downstair's bathrooms(Toilet clogged on arrival and no plunger in that bathroom), and a gas fireplace that was tricky to operate. This property is wonderful, but needs a wee bit of fixing up as you do not want to spend your time on vacation worried about fixing things. Overall our experience was amazing and the kids said we should do that again every year. We loved biking on the big shoulder and over to the fish hatchery trails. Great place for kids!!"

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.

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.
