  • Family get away

    "Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I rented the Bloomer Mansion for a family weekend -My husband, 3 grown children/spouses & grandchildren. It was wonderful to have a place to accommodate our group under one roof. The children were in love with the place. Who knew the way to their hearts would be to rent a house with 4 staircases… Of course they also loved the play closet. I was impressed with the variety of activities outfitted in the mansion to occupy our party when we weren't out and about. The house was large enough to have all of us in it and not be on top of each other. Kitchen was outfitted with most anything you might need, reminded me of being in my grandmothers kitchen - wonderful memories. We were thankful for the washer & dryer. Used them daily. The closeness to the beach & town were great. Picked up fresh seafood in Ilwaco a couple of days, brought it back to cook - so good. Had a Excellent Day @ Waikiki Beach building a fort with driftwood & ordering pizza to have lunch on the beach. Children were excited with the two deer that wandered through daily. The first time we used the path to the beach we didn't use bug spray, learned our lesson, minor inconvenience on a GREAT family getaway. Thanks for providing us with a special place to have our weekend. Hope to do it again."

  • Perfect base camp to explore Seattle

    "The previous reviewers covered it all. I highly recommend this property for a couple or small family. This was a lovely way to stay in Seattle, close to all the fun downtown attractions but not have to deal with traffic and crowds. The Queen Anne neighborhood is very relaxed and full of excellent restaurants, shops and markets. I hope to make this our regular Seattle "home away from home"."

  • Amazingly beautiful house

    "First impression of the property doesn't look appealing because of the trees and bushes but it's natural in the Ocean Shores area. But the moment you step your feet inside the house you'll be amaze on the beauty of the modern design. The view is breath taking where you can hear the sound of the ocean, deer walking in the property & birds of different kinds seems like singing to you. Very quiet neighborhood so you can have your needed rest. The house is well maintained. The owner is very friendly and always ready to assist you with any concern regarding the house. My whole family enjoyed our stay."

  • Perfect home away from home

    "Alki-Soundview was the perfect location for a relaxing vacation. I couldn't have chosen a better place! In fact, my 4 night stay was the highlight of the 9 days I spent in the Northwest. Thank you to John and Kathryn for being gracious hosts. I can't wait to plan my next trip to Seattle.....mainly just to stay at Alki-Soundview!!!"
