Beautiful Home BUT Poor Management CO
Beautiful home located on bay with unbelievable views. Upon arrival we realized the pool heater and pump were not working and internet and tv were also not working. We immediately contacted the home management company but did not receive a note back until 24 hours later. At that time we were told that pool had been broken since previous week and wouldn’t be fixed until we were gone. Manager said she would come following day to check internet and tv. She never came and no communication was shared. Not happy about poor service from management company.
Great house for a large group!
Our extended family stayed at this house during Christmas break and had a wonderful time. Since the weather was chilly, the hot tub was a big hit. We only had one problem with the hot tub and the person in charge came immediately and fixed it. The kitchen was well stocked and we made great meals. We can only imagine how incredible the place would be in the summer. Of curse, the views are spectacular any time of the year!
Luxury home with beautiful pool and dock and well-equipped kitchen
Glorious location with pool and hot tub. As others have commented, the pool is in frequent need of service, but when it is working, it is terrific. Our group had 9 children (not all staying in the house) ranging in age from 9 months to almost 17. It would have been nice to have the use of a row boat, canoe or kayak, given the magnificent dock, but the children spent most of their time in the pool. The multiple spaces for gatherings made it possible to accommodate very large parties for dinner. The Baldwin Acrosonic piano was a bonus.
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.
