Guestbook comments from the manager

I would like to take the opportunity to let you know how much my family enjoyed our staff at Wisteria Hallow and the Cottage-by-the-Sea. Our entire family enjoyed kayaking and the peaceful walks along the shoreline. The views were fantastic.

Lovely place for a family reunion

  • 4 of 5

We came in 2007 for my mom's 70th birthday, and loved it so much, we came back 10 years later for her 80th. The kitchen is AWESOME to cook for a large group. We had 23 people between those who slept over and those who came for the day. There are multiple buildings on the property that can rent separately or together, so there is room for all. We were a little disappointed that the hot tub was not working, but the staff was very accommodating for our request for late check out. Some young adults enjoyed the kayaking, and we had excellent photo ops for the group.

Owner's Response: Linda, Thanks so much for your stay. We have the Hot tub up and running again. The pool company installed an incorrect filter cartridge but that's no longer a problem. Thanks so much for bringing your wonderful family. See you next time!

Great, quiet location. Charming older home. Needs a good deep clean.

  • 4 of 5

Wisteria Hollow is a quiet, awesome location on the water. The property is a large lot with beachfront, lawn, fruit trees, patio covered with grape arbor, and beautiful flowers. The house Is an old home with beautiful woodwork and a nice kitchen. We were surprised upon arriving that the house wasn't cleaner, especially with all of the rules attached with staying there. If it were cleaned up then it would be a first class property.

A wonderful escape for our family

  • 5 of 5

Every year we gather with 4 other families for the kids and the adults to get away and unplug from the world. We rented the Wisteria home and the smaller surf shack to accommodate everyone.

It was AMAZING. The view from the back porch is breathtaking during any part of the day. We couldn't get enough of sitting on the porch swing. Who gets to sit on it was the most argued over topic of the week. We ate outside a lot and the acessability of the grill and eating area outside were perfect. The house was great. When the kids weren't in the water exploring on the kayaks, looking for clams and sand dollars on the shore during low tide, they made good use of the open grass area everyday. Between soccer games, volleyball games (we brought our own net), and tag they were beat... which made us parents happy as they now outnumber us.

The house is old and may need some tuning here and there but that is what gives the house its charm. It's nothing to balk about. Lake houses need this kind of charm to make you feel transported to a different place. The beds were comfy and the bathrooms had plenty of hot water for all the kids to shower consecutively. The attic room with the 4 twin beds is really cute. It does get super hot in the evenings but we just turned on a few well placed fans to blow out the hot air to a top window and it was fine. The kitchen is to die for... the grill inside wasn't working but it didn't matter, since we grilled outside a lot anyway. The stove was great and handled prep for a large number of people with no problem at all.

The kayaks were such fun for the kids. They were on them all day. The life jackets were a little dated but they had all the sizes for all the kids. It was plenty for use. The waterfront is not sandy. It's a mix of rocks, broken seashells, dirt, and algae (depending on where the tide is at that time). Flip flops will not cut it. The kids brought their Chaco sandals and they worked perfectly.

Kathryn was easy to connect with and contact when I had questions and she was super helpful. It was a great experience and we can't wait to go back.

it was a 4 star place with all the amenities we needed. a few things could improve the place.

  • 4 of 5

very nice and roomy place. clean for the most part, though the throw rugs could be laundered more frequently.

no toilet paper, bring your own??? Who pays for a hotel or other accommodation and does not have those very basics?

the kitchen was delightful, so big and well stocked. there was only one dishtowel and no dish clothes. had one sponge that had been used for too long.

having so many fans in the bedrooms was great and useful.

the water play was great too. so much to see and do.

they kayaks were fun, though two of them took on water , quickly! must have holes

Sorry about the hot tub,,,,quite unusable. We had brought our suits, as it was advertised.

All in all, it was a nice weekend.

Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for you stay! For future guests I'll say that with his alert I've had the kayaks repaired. They get banged around a bit with use but are quite robust and easily repaired. The dish towels were onsite just not found by this family. If something is missing a call or email before checkout most often gets the problem resolved speedily. We leave out enough toilet paper to get your stay started but do ask guests to purchase what they need beyond the initial amount.

Great place for our first family reunion!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our days on the cove! The house provided great accommodation for six adults and two children. The rooms were comfortable and the public areas (kitchen, dining room, living room) were spacious and well-equipped, while remaining cozy. The view over the water was lovely, including harbor seals and two otters. The rocky beach provided many sea treasures to find. We used the kayaks as well. The grounds provided lots of room for the kids to run around and for us to enjoy a cookout and sit around the fire.

The property would be ideal if the inside and outside received more upkeep and repair. Nonetheless, it worked well for our needs.

There are a lot of wonderful things to enjoy in the greater Seattle area. Visitors must add some travel time to leave Key Peninsula, but that is balanced by the reasonable price for the accommodations.

Nice and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I had a great time staying in the big house. The furnishings were quite comfortable. The views and relaxing atmosphere made for a restful week that we really enjoyed. The plants around the property were just beautiful. We even had some seals come and visit the floating docks in the mornings.
