"We have rented the property for 10 days in June and July 2016. This home has served as our home base for 10 days, as we explored the area around Seattle. This was probably the best solution for our family of four, which includes two kids in middle school. We would go on day trips to Seattle, Vancouver, Olympic National Park and Tacoma. After each day trip, we would take a day off and spend the entire day at the house. The kids loved paddle boating, swimming in the lake, watching the ducks and frogs, and playing in the grassy back yard. The adults loved having a breakfast or dinner outdoor on the patio with the lake view, and simply relaxing with a book.
The hosts occupied the upper level of the house, and took great care to provide us with privacy. They were friendly, and helpful with suggestions for restaurants, things to do, and how to avoid the traffic.
The property itself was comfortable for the four of us, with plenty of windows to look at the lake. We almost always ate on the patio, with meals prepared after shopping at Trader Joe's or H Market ( Korean- Japanese store), both of which are within 2 mile drive. The bedroom is small, the bathroom has low ceiling, not for 7 foot basketball players. For future improvements, we would kindly suggest three minor things, better wi-fi internet, smaller cooking pot in addition to the 2 big ones, and better quality TV set. Also, in addition to the 2 paddle boats, we would love a small kayak or stand-up paddle board in the future.
We very much enjoyed our stay, and would like to come back."
