Very well equipped and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Had everything I needed to dwell. Comfortably. Lisa was a great hostess and was very available and helpful. Only thing I might suggest Lisa is having some pull down shades on the living room sliders and the kitchen window.. other than that my stay was great!

Relaxing and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great stay. The house had everything we needed for a relaxing stay and the yard was beautiful. Quick and easy access to the highway to visit all the attractions we planned on seeing and was less than 20 minutes from groceries, restaurants, and the shopping mall. It will be my first choice when I visit WA again.

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time staying at Lisa's house! Even before arrival, Lisa prepared little swimming pools and toys for my little brother, which was super considerate of her. The house was very cozy and had a great view of Mount Rainier. It only takes about 3 minutes to walk down to road to the beach and Lisa even offered her own canoes to me. Both of the bedrooms and the living room were very nice and comfortable. I was very surprised that the Kitchen was fully stocked with fresh food in the fridge. It was very convenient for our family. Thank you Lisa for all your help and hospitality!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Coco! I love being able to provide those little special touches to make each stay an individualized experience. Mt. Rainier big and beautiful in the kitchen window was a pivotal selling point to me when I was buying my home years ago. Graduations, celebrations, quiet getaways, business stays- your everything is here!

Clean Comfortable and honest

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this home for six weeks while working at JBLM. I was extremely happy with my stay. This home is very clean and well kept has a fully stocked kitchen and comfortable furniture in the living room. Beds were great although a bit on the small side but I'm used to a king size bed. I was also impressed with the owner (Lisa) who notified me that I had over paid for cleaning fees when I had extended my stay and corrected my mistake before I even knew that I had done it. This for me speaks volumes for the kind of person that she is and I would not hesitate to stay here again.

The property was a welcoming sight, homey and clean!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the ability to have a private residence to go to and from our activities and the ability to fix food or just relax with snacks and wine. We appreciate the ability to have an alternative location. Thank you so much!

From the Owner

Privacy privacy privacy. Pets Pets Pets. You can bring your dog and feel comfortable knowing you aren't violating policies. Just be a good owner and don't let the dog roam the streets and pick up after the duties. There is a doggy door on the side that is fenced, so if you leave for awhile, you can let your dog go out and come back in. It's a rustic play pen area for dogs and people, and you don't have to worry. There is air conditioning when we get really hot nights, which occurs around June 15-September 10th, on average. Last year was even a hotter and longer summer! If you have a boat, camper, RV, we have safe off street parking to accommodate. The water is a block away, with access minutes away. Local parks, marinas, the state capitol, arts and entertainment make this small town kind of a big deal. Depending on rental dates, there are fresh raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, pears, chives, mint, and 3 garden beds with vegetables growing for the picking at your whim.
