About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 8

Come to experience a luxurious stay on a beautiful lakefront home with own beach and dock. The lake

is fresh, clear, and clean with lots of fish for fishing activity on your own private dock. Swimming

is also one of the favorite activities while staying at the house. A 3-person paddle boat is provided free-of-charge for your enjoyment. The house is within walking distant to a beautiful, green, and well maintained park with swimming area and large playground for the children.

You will find two bedrooms, a private bath with a spacious kitchen, complete with dining room and living room, both with the lake view. A

private laundry room with large size washer and dryer. Living room is

furnished with a large flat panel TV. Walk out your living room to a large deck to enjoy the fresh breeze and the view of the lake. Outdoor gas grill is provided for bbq and gather cooking. There is a fire pit on private beach

for a bonfire evening with friends, family, or business associates.

For leisure travelers, we are in the heart of the city with endless activities/attractions in or

nearby cities; i.e. golf, skiing, ice skating, water activities, mountain activities, city

activities, theme parks, etc... Or you could just sit in the deck or on the dock, reading books, and

enjoy the green beautiful view and the fresh breeze that the lake provides.

For business travelers, we are also very close to big corporations such as Weyerhaeuser, Boeing,

Alaska Air, etc.. Come and stay as a warm and cozy home away from home while attending businesses.

We are just fifteen minutes south from Sea-Tac airport, and 20 minutes from downtown Seattle or

downtown Tacoma. Close to numerous attractions, or secluded enough to just relax and enjoy the view

and activities on the awesome lake for a few days - especially the magnificent sunset. More

pictures will be sent upon request.

About Kathy Nguyen

We are aerospace engineers with great property on the lake. We love people. We love the view, the fresh breeze, the place. We want to share the awesome experience with you. We want people to have a pleasant, relax, and memorable stay at our properties.

Kathy Nguyen purchased this house in 2008

Why Kathy Nguyen chose Federal Way

We operated this property - along with property 7081394 or vrbo, property 171816 - with highest standard in all areas: cleanliness, comfort, view, relax, enjoyment and most of all with integrity. We had great reviews but due to our busy schedule, we stopped operating this property. We just now open it again for you to come and enjoy what a great life is about. New oven, new washer, new dryer, new gas grill, new furniture. Guests have the quiet of lake and park with all conveniences city provides.

What makes this house unique

Entire house - fenced and gated. Lake front. Great view of lake and park across the lake. Lots of flowers. Having private deck, and private dock. Out door gas grill. Paddle boat provided. Large and well kept park with settings for both adults and children. Fresh water beach near by - although you can jump directly from your own dock into fresh clean lake water. Fish. Wild life. Walking distance to park and to bus.

Lovely setting, comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Four of us really enjoyed our stay at Kathy's cottage on the lake. The home is fully furnished and attractive as well as comfortable. My only problem was my unfamiliarity with the type of coffee maker and I did it wrong at first. However Kathy was just a phone call away and responded quickly. I would definitely recommend this place.

Great home, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here -- the location was ideal for us, and convenient overall. Close to I5, and also close to lots of restaurants and shopping, but in a residential neighborhood on a beautiful lake -- and Kathy's roses are amazing. Kathy and Todd were helpful and available if needed. The bed was comfortable and it was a real plus to have a washer and dryer! If we return to the area we would definitely stay here again. Thanks to Kathy and Todd for making this home available!

Relaxing Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 4 of 5

My husband & I, 2 1/2 year old twins & elderly in-laws stayed here durning our Seattle vacation. The view and peacefulness was priceless. The home had everything needed for a comfortable stay. The description does warn about safety with small children but we did not have a problem at all. There is a city really near by that allowed us to shop, eat out and even enjoy a nice evening at the park.

We enjoyed our time at the house near the water, paddle boating and in the canoe. We also enjoyed the cool evenings on the patio cooking out.

Kathy welcomed us upon arrival and was available when I had questions about where to go and what to see in Seattle. She maintains the property & flowers beautifully. Really sweet lady.

I would recommend this Home Away property to my family & friends.
