Guestbook comments from the owner

The moment we saw your cottage, we knew it was going to be special. We walked through the house, taking all the details and family memorabilia. It felt like a home lived in with love. Thank you, we hate to leave. 2 My family stayed here for a week. and we enjoyed every moment. We watched the sun go down through the windows overlooking Puget Sound, and each night was beautiful but unique. 3 The gardens are so beautiful and creative. 4 Another vacation for the books. Watching the ships go by was fun. I expect to be making a return very soon. This house was perfect and then some! 5 As you can see from the four comments above, my family thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thank you Debbie and Steve for making such a beautiful and soul nourishing place available...we felt so very much at home. With genuine appreciativeness,

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This house is charming and cozy, with spectacular views and a lovely garden (I can only imagine how much more beautiful it would be in spring). It worked great for my family (mother and sister and I). Mom has mobility issues, so the fact that her walker worked was a big plus. The access to the bathroom is tight so it might not work for all people with mobility problems, but we really enjoyed our time here.

This place was beyond our expectations. We will be back for sure!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I shared this vacation with our best friends and the time spent here was unforgettable. The photos do not do the landscape, the scenery, or the home itself justice. It had everything we needed and more. The owners were very accommodating and made the entire trip, from booking to farewell, an amazing experience. We will all definitely be returning!

House is very well kept and has amazing views and tons of things to do/see. Family friendly

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. Views to die for and so much outdoor space. Access to the beach, yard games, gazebo, fire pit. A perfect place to stay to forget the hustle and bustle of life. Super accommodating and had toys and things for my little ones as well as a fully stocked kitchen, including items for a picnic on the beach. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a getaway

Perfect location on Puget Sound

  • 5 of 5

Great view of the Sound with panoramic windows. Perfect size for a couple or small family. Access to the beach is a very pleasant walk. Owners are next door for any needs. Beautiful drive to area Sound communities.

Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

As many reviews say, pictures do not do the property justice. The views srd breathtaking and gardens are beautiful. The cottage itself was semi small depending on what you are used to. but it suited our needs perfectly. One thing I will say is that even though the cottage was slightly small it had everything you could possibly imagine available at your every fingertip and was nicely updated and very clean. we were traveling with a family of four with two children were quite pleased to find fans to black out noise at night and I have all the utensils and everything that we would need for dinners at home. all of the amenities were there anything that we could think of that we might have

forgotten is easily available to us to make it a very pleasant and enjoyable stay. although the owners lived next door they kept their privacy and we're available for us if we needed them to for anything that might arise in all it was all about location location location they were not far from Seattle – point Dash State Park or from Tacoma or other areas the south like Mt Rainer. Pictures will simply not do it justice on how beautiful the location really is. You can expect the next time that we are staying in the Seattle area (probably next year) we would be staying at the same location. as this home is truly a gem.
