Very clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The location was perfect for us as we having friends and family in Sequim and Port Angeles. The grounds were very nice and quiet. We will be staying here again.

Peaceful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

My little family (husband and dog) came to this home to relax after a crazy year. It was just what we needed. Working with the owner Glen was easy and convenient, we had to change our reservation once and he was very accommodating. I would highly recommend this house to anyone who’s looking for a quiet get away.

nice little home

  • 4 of 5

We loved the neighborhood and property was clean. We didn't realize there is a larger home on the property where the hot tub and pool are located. If there was another family renting that home at the same time that might have been awkward when sharing the hot tub/pool.

The pool was cold, not heated at the time we were there so I didn't use it.

The owner was responsive in helping us with the code to unlock the door. Would definitely stay here again and refer our friends.

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

The house is depicted correctly in the pictures: spatious living space with all the required amenities. We were out exploring the area most of the time, so we didn't get a chance to use the jacuzzi or the pool. The house is located really close to a trail/corridor and gave us plenty of options to walk our dog. Communication with Glen was really easy and we didn't have any problems. We recommend the house to anyone interested in exploring The Olympic Park.

Cheaply furnished, Spartan and uncomfortable.

  • 2 of 5

Desperately needed actual nightstands and a real sofa. No place for second guest to put down eyeglasses or a book by the bed, and using an oversized end table for other side made getting in and out of bed awkward. Bed and futon were hard as rocks. An actual sofa instead of a futon doesn't seem unreasonable. Clock in bedroom broken. Flat was clean, but floral scented laundry soap triggered asthma. Bar height table trendy but unusable for short people. "Patio" is a driveway. "Cottage" is half a garage. Pool is attached to main house and awkward to share. Literally no place to sit and write, do a puzzle, or check email. Small windows with views of neighbors' parking spaces. One neighbor who likes to use power tools in driveway at 7 am every morning of our stay. Lack of path to pool and no outside lighting. Very disappointing, especially at inflated price plus numerous fees.

Owner's Response: Greetings from the Owner When I read your review and rating of our Cottage I was a bit shocked to say the least. Mary and I strive very hard to provide a great experience for our guests and though we do not always do everything perfect we always work to make it right with our guests, and our reviews and ratings reflect our efforts. My first response to your review was shock, as I never received a call, email or text as to your concerns, I have my contact information clearly identified on the welcome sheet and I do respond quickly to any issues, with that said I do want to respond to some statements that are not true. First we just completed a major remodel of the Cottage and everything in it is of excellent quality and very nice. How hard or soft beds and Futons are is subjective but I can assure you that they are medium in firmness. Table height is also subjective, but there is great Wi-Fi and tables to work on the computer and play games. Patio is a nice and secluded area and the Pool Deck is available for our guests use as well. From the spacious windows of the Cottage you cannot see any neighbors drive, only the entry drive to the Cottage. The pool is accessed by a 50 foot graveled walk way and is well illuminated by a security light at the Cottage and a use light on the pool deck.The clock in the bedroom was found to be unplugged. If you would have informed me of your allergies I could have the sheets and towels laundered in an unscented detergent prior to your arrival. As far as a neighbor making noise at 7 am, a call to me would have solved the problem, but I received no communication from you until this review. I feel bad that you had a less than desirable experience and a simple call, I believe could have resolved your concerns. I believe our Cottage is an excellent value for the rental fee. We are people who value our guests and some communication with us would have allowed us to serve you better. Respectfully Submitted, Glen and Mary

Good location for Olympic National Park visitors

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Glen Douglas' cottage for a few days when visiting Olympic National Park. The park is large, so we still had 1.5+ hour drives to reach the Hoh Rain forest and the beaches, but Port Angeles was a good location all things considered.

Glen and Mary don't live in the area anymore, but he was available to answer any questions and had everything set up for our arrival. We found the place easily and got in without a problem, even though we arrived well after dark. Glen called while we were driving and checked in to see if we had arrived and to answer any questions, which we thought was very thoughtful!

Our only complaint was that the cottage felt pretty sparse, especially the bedroom with bath mats for rugs on either side of the bed and a bedside lamp that flickered whenever you moved on the bed (maybe we just needed to crawl under and plug it in better?). But the price was good and everything functioned well and seemed clean--which is what mattered to us the most.

Thank you, Glen and Mary, for letting us stay at your place!
