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

Great location, needs some work

  • 3 of 5

Pros: beautiful views, quiet neighborhood, clean. Good quality linens. Good communication. Nice outdoor deck. Fine if you just want a place to sleep.

Cons: kitchen not adequate for real cooking, fine for a quick breakfast. Beds too soft for our taste. Multiple steep narrow stairs, definitely not for bad knees. Bathrooms okay but could use an update. Just seems a bit tired overall.

Owner's Response: In response to Joyce's comments. I have had a number of guests who have entertained family and friends telling me the kitchen had everything they needed. I also live above the house so if a guests needs any additional kitchen supplies I can provide them. The stairs can be challenging for the elderly or handicapped. Although her husband, daughter, and son in law had no problem and told me how much they loved the house. Tired is a subjective description which I am not clear specifically what she is referring to. It is a seaside cottage not a $600 a night room at the Four Seasons so I guess it depends on ones expectations.

The Sound of the waves were very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed ourselves. My daughter got married at the Brown’s Point Improvement Club three doors down so this worked out perfect for us. Roberta was very kind and accommodating to our party. We had everything we needed for our stay.

We never want to leave!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here and didn't want to leave!!!! The statement "fish from your kitchen window" is not a lie. Views are spectacular, rooms are spacious and very comfortable,everything we needed was there for us, and Roberta was is a fantastic host and was there for any questions we had. People who have difficulties with a lot of stairs will have difficulties getting to this space but other people will get their workout in with a fantastic view. If you want to be literally be right on the water, that is a small price to pay. We had a FANTASTIC TIME and will definitely be back!

Shampood carpets that smelled awful. Cobwebs. Should have informed us about the many steps to the rental. No way to get to the beach. Wouldn't recommend to older visitors as hauling luggage up and down the steps was exhausting.

Owner's Response: What a surprise to hear about the carpets! i had no idea that there would be an unpleasant smell to the carpets after cleaning. I appreciate knowing so I can have the situation corrected. Honestly I had not noticed that there was an odor, but definitely will talk with the carpet cleaner to rectify the problem. As to the stairs people who are older and not in good health might have difficulties. I am in my 70's and navigate the stairs without too much problem, but for some it is a consideration. There is access to the beach and perhaps I should have explained it better. So thank you for your comments.
