About Ashley Goddyn
Real Estate Enthusiast, Mother, Mortgage Professional, this property is my hobby. I grew up in White Rock and now am raising my family here with my husband. The things I value most about living here is the safety and peace. Secondly is the community and proximity to beaches, Seattle, Vancouver & Whistler.

Thank you Ashley for a wonderful rental experience. You were attentive to our needs and available. Location was very well suited to our quick vacation through the greater Vancouver area and on to Seattle. Room was super clean, adequately stocked, and roomy for us (party of 3, but 5 would be comfortable). Easy to find, clear and concise instructions from owner. Nice to have attached laundry room and barbecue. Big kitchen. Convenience store close by with super friendly staff and good coffee. Thanks again.
Convenient and comfortable
Quiet cozy spot with everything you need. We were in the area for a wedding and enjoyed retreating here to rest between events. Easy access to highway, US border, wineries, and Whiterock beach.
Thank you for choosing our property and supporting my family and I - we thank you.
Place was great- had all we needed - close to all the activities we wanted to do and see. So much better then staying in a hotel!! Thank you.
Thank you for your honest review.
Welcomed back any time. ;)
Well located close to major routes and amenities. Generally comfortable but with one or two niggling
The apartment suited our needs very well because we were in Canada to visit family and as a result spent most of our time and took most of our meals with them. On the face of it the rental is nicely decorated and comfortably furnished. There were one or two outstanding features such as the wall-sized chalkboard, which our grandkids loved, and the efficient bathroom shower. However, there were one or two niggling issues, for example the basin plug in the bathroom didn't function which meant that the basin could never be filled with water for shaving and facewashing; the bed in the master bedroom dips in the middle which reduces the comfort factor; the apartment sleeps 6 but there are only 4 stools around the island unit; the kitchen is incredibly well equipped with cupboards and storage space but lacks the utensils and range of pans necesary for serious cooking - we gave up and did all of ours at our son's house; and, the TV tended frequently to lose its signal and freeze, especially when there were people in the upstairs apartment. A point for VRBO to note is that it seems that most of the arrival information and the details about the apartment and its equipment are supplied via the VRBO app once the final payment is completed. Because we live in Europe we never received that information because the app is not available through our app store.
It's unfortunate to receive such a low review given that during the entire stay, not once was I contacted about the TV nor the sink drain.
While unusual that the Guests did not receive the WELCOME Package via email giving the directions and home manual, they were able to call me on arrival when they were having trouble finding the place and I drove there to personally let them in. I emailed them a home manual with the WIFI and other details and included in that list is my contact info and the fact that I state if you need anything, I am only 7 mins away. However, I never heard from them at all during their stay.
It would have been easy to repair a sink drain during their stay had we been given the opportunity to know about it.
The TV situation is being rectified by what seems to be a wireless issue. Hardwiring will fix it.
For the fact that our place is clean, decorated, well stocked and being in the location that it is (able host 5 people with 3 bedrooms) I find this review out of perspective. Nowhere do we advertise a chef's kitchen and if you were to find other accommodations in the area to host a larger party you would be paying 2-4X the cost. For less than $100/night we think it is good value in perspective.
great place SUPER comfy
We came to be with family over the Christmas period and this 3 bedroom place was great for the 4 of us (my husband and I travelling with our 2 adult sons). It was a bit tricky to find as the front of the house is on the back road but once we sorted that, we were good. The beds were comfy, towels good quality and plentiful, place super clean and modern, wifi good and the kitchen well stocked including a waffle maker! And the chalk board wall and kitchen island were wonderful places to congregate and have fun family time. The only issue we had was the TV cable service, which kept freezing. We will stay at this place every time we plan to come visit family!
Thank you for taking the time for your honest feedback. We will look into the cable service so this doesn't happen to future guests.
Happy to host you again, happy new year!
Nice cozy,clean place for the right price.
We had a nice visit with family. The location and price worked for us. I would stay again. We found it very clean and pleasant.
Sincerely enjoy the pleasure it gives me to hear such warm guest experiences like yours. Please do come back and stay with us again, Charmaine.
