About Kathy

I grew up in Olympia, graduating from Olympia High. My parents and family live across Eld Inlet. I now live in San Francisco and run an interior design firm. I like to come to Olympia often for family visits and to enjoy the Great Northwest.

Kathy purchased this house in 2007

Why Kathy chose Puget Sound South

I bought this property because of the fabulous Mt Rainier views and the waterfront location. It is amazing to watch the water change with the seasons and the time of day. It is amazing to wake up looking across Eld Inlet to Mt Rainier! I often kayak across the Bay to visit my parents who live on Cooper Point. Or, it is a short drive.

What makes this house unique

'Pickering' is an amazing retreat! It is a great place to decompress and relax. It is very romantic! One can take walks on the beach and enjoy the views. There are lots of outdoor activities available nearby.

So peaceful!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the peace of the sound while taking advantage of the hot tub and kayaks! Very comfy. The only issuse was the back deck, needs a little work. We were afraid of nails popping up...had to wear shoes and some of the wood was rotten. Other than that, had a wonderful!! Time!

Clean, beautiful and fun

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. Everything was very clean. Our boys loved the movie selections. The favorite part of the weekend for everyone wasn't the wedding we attended, but cruising the sound in the kayaks. Thank you for accommodating us.

The View Is Unforgettable!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this waterfront flat for the hot tub but it came with much more. While I was packing, I received an email that the flat was ready and I could move in anytime. I have rented many VRBOs and no one has proactively let me know I can move in early until Wendy, one of the homeowners. This is a family owned respite and has such a feel. We felt at home preparing meals, enjoying a fire in the fireplace, and selecting a novel from the abundant library. It was Seahawk Sunday so we enjoyed the game on a TV much bigger than our own. And then there's the view. It was sunny and clear so we experienced Mt. Rainer over the water while in the hot tub. Not to be missed. You can't go wrong with this vacation rental!
