About Steve Sherman
Thank you for choosing our family home. Our parents purchased this home in the late 1990’s as both their adult children had moved south of Seattle and they did not want to miss seeing their grandchildren grow up without having them close. For almost 20 years our mom and dad traveled in their motorhome back and forth to Arizona using this home as their convenient base of operations. You will find that we have left items that will make your stay feel more like you are at home. The back yard flower gardens and bird feeders are expressions of our mom’s love of the outdoors and our native birds, we hope you have a chance to enjoy. We will try to feed our winged guests during the summer months and hope you see one’s you’ve never seen before. We have shared many family events here in this home and want you to share in the joy we have had. Please let us know if we can assist in any way to make your stay more enjoyable.
Steve Sherman purchased this House in 1996

Nice, clean and plenty of room.
We would definitely stay here again .
All the comforts of home.
Steve is a fabulous host. This is our second time staying at this property and once again we had everything we needed. It's by far the best stocked home we've ever stayed and perfectly convenient to the King Aquatic Center for our swim meet.
Quiet and clean
My friends and I stayed here to attend Sew Expo. The house had a great location and was easy to get to from the Highway and from Sew Expo. The neighborhood was super quiet and felt very safe for 4 women staying there. We really enjoyed having the space to spread out and relax. I would most certainly rent the house again.
Very clean, nice, felt like home
The area was nice. Convenient to Seattle and close to our grandson. The house was stocked with toiletries, food staples and any linens we needed. We loved being able to cook while we were there. The neighborhood was very quiet
I see that you had only positive things to say about the house. I'm afraid that you mistakenly thought that a one star review was the highest you could give us, but it is actually the opposite. If there was something missing in your stay or we could have done better, please let us know, and hopefully we can make it better next time.
Spacious and Clean
A great home away from home. Very clean and comfortable home. Kitchen is fully stocked with even more than I have at home. Beds are extremely comfortable. The furniture was perfect for relaxing. We look forward to using it again
This is our second time renting this home. It is absolutely wonderful! It’s quiet, clean and has everything you might need. They have extra linens and towels as well as just about every Kitchen gagit you might need. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms stay dark well into the morning. The homeowner is very accommodating and friendly. He makes the check in and out processs very simple. We will stay here again on our next trip to the Seattle area. Thank you Steve!
