Pool / Spa
Perfect family getaway!!
It was in a wonderful location with the most beautiful views. The house was stocked with everything we needed. Our family did not want to leave!! We will definitely be renting this amazing home again. Thank you so much for opening your home to us, we sincerely appreciate it.
Great Place for children, adults, and elderly. Lots of parking and beautiful views. Some issues...
I agree with reviewer Ryan S. on almost all points. Also note that Vashon Island is only accessible via the WSF Ferries and will cost about $30-40 round trip (car and people) to get on and off the ferry. We were there for the SU Graduation and had to wake up at un ungodly hour to make the 8 am pinning ceremony.
The Pool: When we got to the property the pool was left uncovered for who knows how long (something maybe the cleaners should put on the checklist) and the pool was filled with dead leaves and was cloudy. The reason we rented this particular home was because we wanted a pool for the children. We still swam in the pool but with reservations. Unfortunately, a pool person was not on the island and would not be available until after we were gone.
The Plumbing: On the second to the last day, the plumbing backed up in the master bath. It was okay for us because more than half our family had left by that time and the rest could make do with 2 full baths. The sink in the common bath drained really slowly as well.
The Freezer: The freezer overfroze and also leaked from the lower right side.
The Housebook: The book is outdated and has instructions for the boat and kayaks. After speaking with the property managers, it was explained that those were off limits due to liability and safety. I fully understand however, the book should be updated.
Misc: Bring your own basketball and extra fishing gear. Only 1 pole worked.
The owner was great about making things right. Let them know if you have issues right away.
I came home and researched Seattle properties that may have been better for our needs, & could not find one that beat this house. We were a big group with children, adults, and elderly. This house was perfect for us with tons of parking. The multilevel homes on HomeAway could not compare to the single level home that kept us all together for great family time. There is 1 television and that may be an issue for some but not for us. We watched the NBA playoffs (go GSW!) and spent a majority of our time not staring at a screen but actually talking and laughing and looking out at the beautiful water. I know that if we stayed in a multilevel, than we would have been separated. The house was easy on the elders as they did not have stairs to climb and moved freely from bedroom to dining room. The grounds are private and have swings and a great yard for Nerf Wars (watch out for mole poop!) Most of all we felt safe and happy!
Peaceful stay with great view
Nice property with good amenties and a positive overall stay. Kitchen well-stocked. Outdoor grill and seating was great. Large windows with great views.
Do not expect a perfect property, but for the price we were not let down. Some spiderwebs in windows, but inside was clean.
Pool was not functioning at check-in and was cloudy. Property manager quickly arranged pool repair the next morning. Freezer has had a long-term frost/thaw issue resulting in water on the kitchen floor.
Property info book was misleading, unclear, and contained out-dated information about the property. Property manager provided further conflicting information - there are kayaks! Unfortunately we didn't realize this until finding out how to enter the garage during check-out.
With awareness of faults, would recommend this property.
Best New Years Weekend Ever!
Wow! This is by far the best vacation home I've stayed in. This place is fully furnished, kitchen equipped, spacious, and very comfortable. Joe was amazing and responded to my questions quickly.
This place is a definite repeat.
Wonderful Family Time
This was the perfect setting for a short, family getaway. The large, spacious kitchen was fully equipped. The bedrooms were attractive and comfortable. The yard was great for outside play (great swings!!). The setting cannot be beat - beautiful sunrises.
Best Birthday Ever
This house was perfect for our long weekend stay for my 40th Birthday. I couldn't have asked for more. We were 3 families, 7 adults and 3 kids. This house gave us ALL plenty of space to lounge, play, eat and sleep. The decor and layout of this house is awesome. We spent tons of time outside on the beautiful grounds watching the sea life from the amazing dock, swinging on the tree swings, playing ping pong and basketball, swimming, picking up sand dollars on the beach, picking fruit & veggies from the garden- there were endless things to do right at the house. We also spent a lot of time inside looking out of the huge windows enjoying the view and just relaxing with coffee or wine. I could go on and on. I highly recommend this property to anyone. Vashon is a lovely island with lots to do but you don't even have to leave the property to have plenty to do and see right at your fingertips. I wish we could have stayed all week.
