What makes this house unique

We loved our stay at the quiet tree top getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We hated to leave in the AM as it was such fun to watch the sea planes taking off, the water skiers, and Mt. Rainier in the background. Great fully stocked kitchen. Beds comfortable. Very clean and great decor.

Awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Owl's Nest. The views were great. We enjoyed watching the seaplanes over Lake Washington. The runners in our family enjoyed the nearness to a running trail--the Burke-Gilman trail. Moody the cat even stopped by to visit us. He was a well-mannered gentleman.

In short, a very relaxing and homey place to stay. Loved it!

Great Home, Great Views & Great Value

  • 5 of 5

The HOME is beautiful. The owners have a real knack for interior design and it is reflected in the great artwork and furnishings. This is someone's home we felt honored that they shared it with us. All the comforts of home. Well applianced kitchen, w/d, outdoor grill, flatscreen/cable in the living room. Seattle area visitor information, nearby restaurants and home instructions were all neatly together in a welcome binder.

The VIEWS of the lake and (on a clear day) Mt Ranier were more beautiful than expected from the deck and master bedroom.

While the LOCATION is a bit North of downtown, but easy to find and get to if you have your own wheels. We went the public transit route. Super easy as there is an express bus stop just minutes away. 15-20 minutes or so and you're downtown with no transfers and just a few stops. I believe the fare was less than $3. The home, view, peace, tranquility and very reasonable day rate are worth the few miles to the tourist destinations downtown (museum of Pop Culture a must).

The OWNERS stay on the property in a separate suite on a separate level with a separate entrance and no shared facilities. It's obvious they live in main house when it is not rented. They said we wouldn't even know they were in the same building. As with everything involved with this rental, they under promised and over delivered. We never heard or saw our hosts. You'll get their cell number and any questions or concerns we had were happily handled immediately. OH, and when we booked, they asked us what type of wine we liked and it was on the counter when we got there.

No negatives. Great Value We absolutely recommend this short term rental.

Gorgeous View

  • 5 of 5

Pam was an amazing owner and represents HomeAway in a great way. She was very accommodating and treated us extremely well. The home has an amazing view of the lake and weather permitting Mt. Rainer. The home is convenient to Seattle, Bellevue and the surrounding area. We enjoyed the San Juan Islands as well as various waterfalls, especially Franklin Falls. Thanks Pam for allowing us to use your home for a relaxing vacation.

The view of the Owl's Nest from Mt. Rainier is spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

I started this review by reading others that had been posted. I agreed with virtually every one, but looked for the one that dragged the overall rating down to 4.9. It used the word "perfect." Some judges just won't give a 5.0. For all others, it is hard to think of a negative point. I will adopt, but not copy, what people have unanimously said about the House and Pam.

Suffice it to say that we average 7 weeks a year here. When we left yesterday (,January 3, 2017), we had blocked time for March (grandkids' birthday), July (other grandkid's birthday), and November (Thanksgiving). Each time we come for family visits, we walk in like greeting an old friend. It has everything and we know where everything is. Not only that, but Pam keeps adding or updating things--this year a brand new coffee pot; last year a new TV system; COMING Spring 2017, a central AC system. Pam does not just ask if you like Starbuck's--she asks what blend you want (Pike's Place) so it is ready for the first morning.

Some people don't know that Seattle in summer weather is pretty much like San Diego. Easy to get to Point Townsend for a whale-watching cruise or up to Vancouver and British Columbia (great for people who don't prefer Tijuana). And Seattle is a wonderful destination trip, even without grandkids there.
