A very lovely quiet and clean rental with friendly hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Glenda and John were great hosts! The Casita had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. They have thought of everything! The veggie garden was an added treat. The hot tub was inviting after a day of hiking on the mountain. Glenda was so helpful providing directions for the area. A quiet and beautiful location.

Owner's Response: David and Cathy, thank you so much for your kind review and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our Casita along with your friends Dick and Arleen. You left the place super clean and thanks for that. We hope you do make it back here someday. It has been great meeting wonderful people like the four of you. David, we enjoyed reading your story of your trip to Mt. Rainier years ago with your family, sounds like you could be writing short stories and having them published, you have a gift of writing. Thanks also for writing in our Casita guest book and sharing your thoughts that means a lot to us. Hope to see you again, John and Glenda

Warm, inviting, homey, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts, John and Glenda, greeted us warmly when we arrived and showed us around their lovely, well-manicured little slice of paradise. They are a friendly couple who truly desired to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Our Casita was so well appointed that I would be happy to have this as my permanent retirement home. The leather couch and recliner, and the beds were top quality. We dined on some of the fresh produce which they offered us from their garden. The hot tub was relaxing. We loved that they had a Vitamix for making our morning smoothies, and furnished us with quality cookware, dishes, and silverware. This does not feel like a rental, but more like a home away from home. We saw a few elk just a few yards outside of their fence as we departed on our morning travels the next day. The Casita is in a great spot, near to both Mt. Rainier National Park and Mt. St. Helens. While it is located in a neighborhood, it is a couple of miles outside of the town of Packwood, by the edge of the national forest. Stay here if you are in the area! We loved it!

Home with all the extras!

  • 5 of 5

La Casita has beautiful surroundings and gracious and accommodating hosts. Being disabled, they quickly placed hand rails in bathroom❣ All amenities were included: dish soap, zip locks baggies, vitamix, blender, large pantry, etc. There is a fish pond, veggie garden and an art studio to explore. Glenda and John are special loving people whose aim is to please. I know we'll be back.
