About Barbara

I'm a Seattle native and grew up in the Magnolia area. Went to Queen Anne high school and the University of Washington. Married my college sweetheart 30 years ago and have 2 awesome kids in college. I love the outdoors, skiing, hiking, soccer and football. Also a proud owner of two adorable, precocious huskies.

Barbara purchased this house in 2000

Why Barbara chose Puget Sound South

My husband and I built this home in 2000. My extended family spent our holidays out here and I learned how to waterski in the warm waters of Von Geldren Cove. This is a special place and one I wanted to share with my children.

What makes this house unique

The Cape Cod style gives the home a casual elegance, yet beachy feel. We wanted it to eminate a Nantucket feel and style. The 100 feet of waterfront is perfect for boating, swimming, barbecuing or digging clams. The Von Geldren Cove is calm, warm and fun to swim across or waterski in. The fresh air calms your soul and allows you to sleep soundly surrounded by the singing birds and beautiful sunsets.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property for three nights. There were eight of us, in town for a wedding. We loved the house and property. Spacious inside and out - plenty of seating and a great deck for hanging out. Beach right outside the door was great! One of our couples slept in the den, and had to go through the master bedroom to use the upstairs bathroom. Not a big deal for our group, but could be for others. Kitchen was well equipped. Cute, beachy decor! All in all, we loved the house and it was perfect for our situation!

Wonderful, relaxing, beautiful home and property!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!! What a perfect vacation getaway! The home was immaculate and impressively stocked with everything imaginable. I'm a clean freak and felt immediately relaxed to arrive to such a clean and organized home. The view is breathtaking! Our oldest son was able to meet us there easily for 4 of the nights (he's a student at PLU in Tacoma and has stayed on campus for the summer working)...our 15 year old son was impressed with the sound system and loved the house too...and our 2 chocolate labs, Tugboat and Kayak, loved swimming (the outdoor shower was so helpful in washing them off!) and lounging on the deck. We enjoyed the kayaks, playing games in the evening, and just loved having such a relaxing getaway. Thank you for sharing your home with us. My husband and I both have jobs that can be stressful and we hate leaving our dogs to go on trips. Having a place that was perfect for our teenaged kids AND dogs was fabulous. We'd love to book it again!

A wonderful beach house vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house was just as great as the description and photos on VRBO. There was easy access to the beach as well as nice lawn areas in front of and behind the house. We saw several deer and tons of birds! Our golden retriever enjoyed swimming, and the outdoor shower was so convenient for rinsing off the dog and humans' feet!

The house was furnished very comfortably; the kitchen had everything! We would definitely like to return!

Amazing home!

  • 4 of 5

What an amazing home! Super clean! Well stocked in every way: pantry, cleaning products, board games, movies, life jackets, wet suits...really everything we could have hoped for. We spent all week here and it was amazingly quiet with very few other people seen or heard and an increase of neighbors arriving for the weekend. The water is beautiful and kayaking with the children was a favorite pastime for us.

Must stay property

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time enjoying this beautiful property. The home is nestled right on the water and was beautifully landscaped. We enjoyed kayaking in the included kayaks and enjoying a BBQ on the gas grill and making s'mores in the fire pit on the water. The tides made for a lovely time walking and exploring on the beaches right in the backyard. We were able to travel by kayak just a short piece for a beautiful view of Mt Rainer. Inside the home we had everything we needed for our family to be comfortable. Thanks for a terrific visit in his must stay 5 star property.
