    We enjoyed the spaciousness of the house and the very comfortable king sized bed. The sheets and towels were new and immaculate. The kitchen was very well equipped. We really enjoyed the view. Many thanks to Jane for being so available and responsive. Julie Hamann

    We had a wonderful family time at your place! Views were gorgeous, accommodations were just right for our family and kitchen was well stocked as we shared cooking duties between our kids. So much easier to eat at “home”! Thank you!

    Wow, what a great place to experience the Puget Sound, in an older house perched right on the edge of the water. The house may be older, but it's got everything you'd need and the age makes you feel like you've stepped back in time to a simpler life. Or maybe that's just the feeling of relaxation you get sitting down by the seawall, watching the seals and Caspian Terns and the tidal currents flowing by. This is a really great place to stay and would easily fit 7 people (though we sure enjoyed it just with 2).
