What a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the entire Thanksgiving week at this house and it was lovely. Shane was very gracious about seeing if there was anything we needed. We had a brand new baby with us (Great grandson) and all the bedrooms were large enough to handle all the things that come along with a baby. Every room in the house is bright and cheery. My only regret was that there weren't quite enough serving bowls for a big dinner. We managed to handle it though. I would love to spend another week there sometime. If you stay on the island, be sure and shop on the mainland before you get there. The small grocery store is VERY expensive and doesn't carry a lot of stuff. The restaurant at the Golf Course is fabulous and right on a small lake, so the view is very nice.

Island Bliss

I always love the relaxing Island pace of Anderson Island. This home on the island was a wonderful way to relax and enjoy the long weekend in secluded comfort. Very clean, well stocked, and comfortable. Highly recommend

Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property is well kept in a park like setting.The house is very well laid out with everything that is needed.There is a large laundry room,pantry, two living rooms, an open kitchen, a dining room,three bathrooms,a huge master bedroom, and 3 bedrooms.There is a jetted bath in the Master Bedroom,a hot tub outside and a porch on three levels on the backside of house.We had three Grandchildren with us.We visited a local museum and inquired about things to do.We took a hike to Oro Bay,we visted Lowell Johnson Park and spent several hours there each time.It is a public access park with picnic tables and grated fire areas for cooking.oh and it has access for swimming with floats to dive off of.and a completely enclosed dock for little swimmers.Our last day we spent several hours on the beach just south of the Ferry Landing.Much of The Island is private property that is why you need to ask locals about public access areas.We had no problem finding things to do.We spent one day in Tacoma visiting The Aquarium and Zoo.We enjoyed our stay and have already been thinking of coming back again.
