Great Place to Stay
We rented two of the houses on this property for a family reunion of sorts. The houses were wonderful and we hope to rent again in the future.
Thank you for staying with us! We would love to have you back!
Water access excellent
The best part of this place is the immediate access to the water and huge gardens to roam around. There are also kayaks for you to borrow and swimming dock out in the water which my family loved. Also loved how isolated the location was though this means you need to plan to buy food heading in and work hard if you want to head out for dinner. There are two houses on the property which means you can share some of the grounds and the water access I suspect, but the other house was empty when we stayed. The house itself is old and has been fairly well maintained. A lot of dark wood around and thick carpets, even a hidden drinks cabinet that thrilled my kids when they spotted it. The owner is super responsive and let us stay to midday on departure day even though checkout was meant to be 10am. Some of the challenges to be aware of, there is only one shower in the house and that is attached to the master bedroom (there is a separate bath tub), the top attic room with four twin beds can get incredibly hot, though there is a mobile AC unit in the room the ventilation duck is not fitted properly so the machine sometimes fights itself; it needed monitoring so this room did not get too hot for the kids. The kitchen has a very expensive Viking stove which is wonderful but you do need to pay careful attention to the notes left by the owner on how to manage the stove. We had issues with toilets blocking, but as someone who has worked with septic tanks before and I know this is a constant battle. Overall, I would return to this house all the quirks are acceptable in this age of house and the quiet, water access is to be treasured. Our favorite spot is right on the swing chair looking out across the water!
Perfect Family & Friends Gathering Place on Puget Sound
The gracefully elegant surround of Wisteria Hollow was both peaceful and functional for gathering members of our daughter's wedding. The Victorian home has been polished with years of use and authenticity, reflecting a time only found in the past. We enjoyed serving guests from the huge kitchen, dinning under the grape arbor, lounging on the balconies, playing basketball on the court, and paddling out on the sound. The wedding party rehearsed on the grounds and were photographed in the pretty master suite. A highlight is the glass shower in the master with views of the tides and an ever present eagle. The location's ambience was magical.
Thank you Erica! You were wonderful guests and we'd love to have you return anytime!
I only have few suggestions for the house. 1. The faucet for the sink in the kitchen was leaking real bad. We have to shut it down when checking out. 2. The kids room upstair was super hot. We turned on the A/C but there is no hole for hot air from A/C to escape, should have a different kind of AC. 3. Should change all door’s handles. They are old and beat up. 4. Should fix the gates. We couldn’t close the main gate. That’s why 2 big dogs showed up inside the yard while we were chilling and scared my kids away. 5. Should bring garbage and recycle bin inside. Both bins was outside on the street and both are barely full when we checked in. We smelled moldy when we came in, then we had to use our candles to get risk of that strong smell. Overall, we had a good time there. We will come back again someday.
Beautiful space, responsive host
Our group enjoyed a relaxed weekend to celebrate our friend before her wedding. The house was perfect for each of us to do our own thing when we needed and also to come together for seemless bonding of new and old friends. The host was very responsive before and during our stay and incredibly accommodating to ensure we had everything we needed.
Excellent! Incredible! Loved it!
We arrived had an amazing vacation! The house was nostalgic and so charming! We had everything we needed to have an amazing memorable vacation! Took the kayaks out and saw porpoises and seals swimming around us! The kids dug up lots of clams and we cooked them up in the amazing kitchen! After purchasing a license of course. The location is was remote and beautiful, felt quite safe. Hard to leave! Thank you for your hospitality!!
