Positives: The view is lovely, new fridge in the kitchen, workout equipment. Apology Bouquet from the host.
Considerations: This house was challenging with pets. The yard is NOT secure and is all steep bank, slippery when wet 9 months out of the year. No sidewalk. Very busy highly traveled road. The master bedroom is very loud traffic noise at night until midnight. Very low-quality mattresses were hard to sleep on. The house sleeps eight yet there is NO comfortable seating for eight, only the kitchen table. The den and only TV is on the third level and has a jacuzzi bathtub NOT hot tub adjacent to it. I would recommend putting the toaster oven in the kitchen not next to the bathtub. There is exposed unfinished ducting in the bedroom with two queens. We never felt comfortable in this house. I sat at the kitchen table most of the time facing the window to enjoy the view which was the best thing about this house. Also, the parking and maneuvering of vehicles is challenging. We were driving a Yukon AT4, larger size car, navigating the driveway exit with poor visibility on a busy street, and spun our tires out every exit. A smaller SUV would be a better fit. Only one side of the garage can be used due to the second bay being used for the owners' things being stored. The carport is the only access to potty your dogs so may not want to park there. I recommend texting this host and NOT calling and immediately tell him you are with VRBO/Evolve.

Great location and beautiful house!
Only issue we had was the master bed frame was zip tied together. It broke while we slept.

The house is located in such a way that multiple rooms, and the two upper decks have views of the Puget Sound. The weekend was fairly stormy, but we did have the sun break through several times, and when the sun was shining the view of the sound is spectacular.
The kitchen is well appointed with dishes, utensils, pans, etc., if someone were staying for several nights and wanted the opportunity to cook in, rather than going out for food the house would make that very viable. There are multiple bedrooms, multiple bathrooms, and significant space available. Floors, and stairs are all wood, so going up and downstairs does require some attention if in socks just to be safe.
The exercise room is very well equipped, very impressive. And the first time I have ever seen a grand piano in a VRBO rental. The house was clean, lots of towels, extra bedding, etc., was available.
Overall, a very nice location, we will certainly use the location again when we want a weekend break.
