Excellent central location and views of the Bay were breathtaking. Although we didn’t meet her, Karen was always available for questions and checked in with us several times. We recommend this very clean and accommodating home for you stay!

Terrific View!!!!

  • 4 of 5

This house has a terrific view of Puget Sound and has lots of beds to accommodate many guests. We had traveled to the NW for a wedding and it was terrific to get all the family together in one house and enjoy the views.

On the down side be prepared to bring paper towels, toilet paper, garbage bags, etc. Also several of the blinds were in a state of disrepair which is a shame with the terrific view you have from the house. There are plenty of notes posted around the house though for things not to use and other rules of the house to keep things in check.

Lovely Home with a View!

  • 4 of 5

Our goal was to find a house to rent for a family vacation that offered private space for family groups and common space for bringing everyone together. This offered even more than we needed, but we found ways to use it all! The views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains were the biggest draw in selecting this vacation home. We spent many mornings and evenings enjoying the deck and these views, as well as seeing the city lights in the distance at night, the ships coming and going, and the starry skies. What a wonderful way to begin and end our days that were filled with sightseeing trips! The location was great for us, since our itinerary took us in every direction, yet it was close enough to family members living in Seattle and the tourist attractions there. We couldn't have made a better choice for a place to unite with family and take in all that this beautiful area has to offer!

House is beautiful. Not ready on time for our arrival, some plumbing issues.

  • 3 of 5

Very nice home with great view. When we arrived after the 4 pm time specified, the owner and 2 cleaning ladies were still working on the house. Not a very inviting scene to walk into. My husband asked about the neighborhood (he is a law enforcement officer and always asks) and the owner went on and on about how we couldn't have any parties- the neighbors would call the cops, the house had rules, etc. We rented the house to stay with extended family- grandparents, kids and adults. Not to have a big crazy party, but she didn't seem to believe him. It made us very uncomfortable. She did reach out to me via text during our stay, but she didn't identify herself or ask about the house specifically. They were very general messages like "How is it going?" So I didn't realize it pertained to the rental until after the fact. There were also several plumbing problems (not caused by us) that we ended up fixing- a clogged sink drain and toilet not flushing.

Owner's Response: Since we never met and I only met 2 others from your group including your husband, allow me to correct and state the facts. I am sorry the cleaning crew kept you waiting EXACTLY 15 minutes. The home was practically clean we were preparing for exit and the final touch ups were being done. I invited your husband and friend in and gave them a tour in the overall CLEAN house. I am not sure what could possibly have been communicated to you otherwise. I hung around as an obsessive compulsive doing whatever ( agreed,not needed) until his return to ensure full settlement ( he chose to go and pick up other members). I invited them in and welcomed them and then left. No excuse for late here ever. I have been forgiving of upscale hotels for a delay, I thought I too was forgiven right then for my cleanliness obsession. I was wrong. Again I am sorry. I did indeed try to reach out several times- CALLS and text. Important to note that you ALWAYS had my contact information. Important to note that ANY problems should have been communicated to me. Important to note that my drained clogged a few months prior to your arrival and I chose not to just fix it but to replace the ENTIRE house's plumbing to avoid ANY problems with guests (older home, the cost was enormous!). I do go WAY above and beyond in my preparations (that's why I was an obsessive cleaner). You failed to mention the IMMACULATE state of the home. To now have you as the only person to report an issue with an entirely NEW plumbing system- there were several guest before you. Now, prior guests can leave all kind of surprises in your drain and you REALLY should have informed me of ANY problem worthy of coming to this site to write about. I am disappointed. I do not talk repeatedly about anything. Your husband asked about safety and I answered. He proceeded to tell me about your not so safe neighborhood. These conversations were led by your husband. I have never entered into a big conversation with any of my guests about parties. It is part of the understanding of our agreement on this site and I simply expect it to be respected. I don't even bring it up again in 99.9% of my encounters with guests. ( only when they seem unclear as to what is expected - as here). I am not sure why this seemed bothersome to your husband a LAW enforcement officer. Perhaps the nature of his profession makes him suspicious of our very simple conversation. I am sorry for any perception otherwise.

Loved this home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this home. Had 10 people and there was plenty of room for sleeping. Spent most of our time on the deck and the view was wonderful.

I am going to remodel my home to have a shower like the one in the master bath of this property.
