Close enough to downtown Seattle and Tacoma, yet a world apart. This spacious home is right on the waters of Commencement Bay. You can literally fish from your kitchen!!

This beautifully furnished two story home has a fully equipped high end kitchen, two upper level bedrooms(one with King bed and 800 ct Egyptian cotton sheets, the other with twin beds), 1 full bath and 1 guest bath, CATV, WIFI, washer/dryer and everything you will need for an incredible holiday!

About Roberta Woodmansee

I am from the Northwest, but have traveled extensively as I am an ex Pan Am stewardess. I enjoy sharing my part of the world with others and am happy to answer any questions you may have. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make your holiday a special one.

Roberta Woodmansee purchased this house in 2000

Why Roberta Woodmansee chose Browns Point

There is something about being on the water and watching the wildlife that is very calming. I love living here and find that when I am on the water my blood pressure seems to go down and I feel a sense of serenity.

What makes this house unique

The views from the house are spectacular. I especially like the kite surfers and the sail boat regatta on Wednesday night. Fine dining is just a short walk away. There is a great pub to meet locals and drink micro beers and an elegant restaurant that attracts people from Seattle and Tacoma

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a hidden treasure. It is better than the photos on VRBO. We hope to come back ,and would love to stay at your place again. Loved being on the water and all the marine wildlife, sailboats, and ships were great

Peaceful Luxury in the City

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with this beautiful spot. It was very peaceful and quiet. The house was clean and very comfortable. You could tell a lot of thought went into our comfort. The only warning is that there are two flights of stairs to get down to the house from the parking area. If you have trouble packing your things up and down stairs you should look elsewhere. Otherwise this spot was perfect. We were able to get to everything we came to see within an hour.

Fabulous vacation in a comfortable and nice home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The place exceeded our expectations. Very clean. Very nice owner, available anytime we had a question.

You could walk to eat or have a drink at nearby cafes, pizza , or just to go have a drink. Walk to nearby shops or the park. Close to bus stop that goes to pikes place. Safe neighborhood to walk around.

Owner's Response: Hi MaryEllen: Thanks for submitting a review. I was curious that you gave the property a 3 star rating. It would be helpful to know what you felt was lacking. I was particularly surprised since you did not actually stay in the house. Hope you had a safe trip home. All the best, Roberta

wonderful location, charming landlord, great experience

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, calming and tranquil location along with a very helpful ( not hovering) landlord made our stay absolutely perfect. Four old high school classmates rented this getaway for four days in June also to attend Roger Waters concert at Tacoma Dome. Fantastic restaurants within short drive. Would highly recommend this location/landlord. Couldn't have been any better.
