Great house to enjoy with family for a White Christmas and Happy New Year!
We really enjoyed our stay here. The owner was very responsive and informative prior to our arrival. Check-in and entry was easy as well. The house was perfect for the six of us with my Dad and his wife in the large downstairs bedroom with attached bath. My girls were in one of the upstairs bedrooms and my son and I shared the other one. The beds were warm and comfortable. There were plenty of towels and wash cloths. The kitchen was well equipped with dishes, plenty of silverware and I especially liked the "12 Days of Christmas" mugs for the hot cup of morning coffee or tea. We enjoyed sharing many a meal or game time on the large dining room table. We also enjoyed using the natural fireplace (of course remembering to open the flue). We did notice the airplanes from time to time but it didn't bother us. Also, it was a short walk to the Salt Water Park via some forest trails and a beautiful view of Puget Sound. All in all, a great time and look forward to trying VRBO somewhere else again soon.
The Salt Water Cottage suited our needs in exemplary fashion. I would recommend it to anyone.
Great location and home was very nice and ready for my family stay.
Thanks for keeping the house super clean!
Perfect place for a getaway, yet close to everything!
There were six of us, and this house worked perfectly! Close to the airport (note that the house is on the flight path, but the double-paned windows go a very long way to keeping out the noise, and the planes stop at midnight), great little restaurants (especially Vietnamese and Thai), close to a beautiful park, and an easy ride to either Seattle or Tacoma. The house itself is super-comfortable and very well equipped, including everything we needed to make several meals at home. The owner is very responsive (not that we had any questions, because everything was so well organized). I would absolutely stay here again, and recommend the house whole-heartedly.
The house was surprisingly clean, having had 6 guests for a week! It'd be every landlord's dream to have tenants like these group of noble people! Thank you for letting us to have the opportunity to host you. Looking forward to having you stay with us again in the future.
Cozy little house perfectly suited for our needs
The house was very reasonably priced and well located for our vacation needs. Owner was very responsive to our inquiries.
Thank you for your favorable review. We're glad that we met your travel needs. Great words came from you also meant special encouragement for us to continue to improve the quality of our rental property for future great guests like you.
We love the house and great location!!!
Glad you felt the same way as us and many other guests. We were confident that you, as our first guests to enjoy the newly installed (on Jul 21) central air conditioning unit and new matching furnace, were our lucky stars. Thank you for your positive review! Let us know next time you need a vacation home in Seattle.
