About the property

2 bdrm 1 bath cottage 2 miles from Chambers Bay Golf Course

Now renting for Summer 2018 (available dates are June 16-July 8)! Clean, well cared for, fully furnished home. Bedroom #1 has newer double size tempur-pedic mattress set, bedroom #2 has new plush queen size futon, which I personally find just as comfy as the tempur-pedic. Pack-n-play infant bed and twin size airbed also available. Flat screen TV with cable package including golf channel, free wifi. Fully functional kitchen with breakfast bar. Ample parking for 4-5 vehicles. Large pet friendly fully fenced backyard with brand new deck. All kitchen utensils and linens included. 2 miles to Chambers Bay Golf Course, less than 5 minute drive, and a do-able walk as well. Restaurants and shopping nearby, Seattle 39 miles north.

About Jackie

I am an Occupational Therapist working in a local school district. This rental is the home that I live in during the school year. Since my kids are grown and out on their own, I take advantage of summers by traveling and opening up my home for people who want to visit the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

Jackie purchased this house in 2000

Great location in a very comfortable house.

  • 5 of 5

Jack's cottage is a nice two bedroom house located in a very desireable University Place neighborhood. The house has modern upgrades, comfortable beds, a nice backyard and a quiet peaceful setting.

The location was perfect for us. It is close to Puget Sound, Pt. Defiance Park, and the town of Steilicoom. Hiking and walking trails are near as are upscale grocery stores and a world class golf course.

Need to bring your dog? This house comes with a fenced backyard and the locations mentioned above all have off leash dog parks as well as leashed walking trails.

We stayed over three weeks and our only regret was the day we had to leave.

Best of all, Jackie is a very personable owner who cares about making your stay as good as it could be. If you are looking for a rental in a very cool large city that feels miles away from city hassles then this is it. We really loved it and plan on returning.

Great little cottage. Conveniently located to meet all our family and friends.

We had a great stay, two bedrooms and one bath, suitable for our needs. We liked the location since we used to live nearby and know the area well. I would definitely be interested in renting this property again.

My wife and I rented Jackie's home last Aug (2015) to be closer to family and for the cooler weather


We enjoyed our visit immensely. Spent a lot of time on the wonderful deck.

All necessary things are close by.


My wife found a place to play tennis and even met some people she played against in


Jackie is a wonderful hostess, just let her know what you desire and she will research it out for you. She leaves a list of where things that are near by and the answer to places that you may have asked for.

Again we had a great stay, it felt like home.
