About Saundra Mock

We work and live in Des Moines; I'm a realtor and my husband owns a production house for photography and advertising. We enjoy all the Pacific NW has to offer and the great outdoors.

Saundra Mock purchased this House in 2017

Why Saundra Mock chose Des Moines

We purchased this particular property because the neighborhood is clean and safe, and the house met the criteria we were looking for in a vacation rental; Its close to the freeway, lite rail, the airport and Seattle, as well as Tacoma so ideal for the business traveler AND vacationer. It's also next to a State Park and the beach.

What makes this House unique

Being close to Saltwater State Park makes this an ideal vacation home with beaches and picnic areas. The back patio is a oasis all its own and a great place to barbeque and have a fire in the evenings.

                                                    Michele H.Juneau, Alaska

                                                    Super cute house; loved the decor! Was so nice to have full access to a kitchen and laundry facilities, which you do not get with just a regular hotel. Our family of five was able to spread out at the end of each day and unwind without crowding one another. 😉 The neighborhood was nice and quiet, and wasn’t too far of a drive from anywhere we wanted to go. The owner is fabulous and was very easy to reach, always willing to go the extra mile to make sure we were happy! Would definitely stay again! :) Thank you!

                                                    Loved the back yard area with the gas rock fireplace

                                                    comfortable and clean Plenti of room, Saundra was easy to book with, a very nice experience:)

                                                    Wonderful place to relax

                                                    Nancy W.Flower Mound, TX

                                                    Really loved staying here. Beautifully decorated, comfortable cozy beds, felt safe in this residential neighborhood. Felt very much like being at home. Quaint Des Moines, just a 5 minute drive there down a scenic road. Also, they have an awesome fire pit in the backyard. Very cute patio. It was about a 25 minute drive to Pike Place. It was nice coming home to a peaceful house after being in the hustle and bustle of Seattle. Also, only a couple minutes away, you can park at Marine View Park and hike down to the water for incredible views of the sunset on the water.
