Incredible views from a private, well appointed and homey retreat.

  • 4 of 5

Myself and 9 old friends had a wonderfully relaxing time at this private cliff side retreat. The house and grounds were perfect for sharing a glass of wine and just soaking in the spectacular views. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals for a large group and the hot tub and sauna were a great bonus. Thanks a lot John!!

Great property for a large group

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the property for two nights over the Remembrance Day long weekend. We had a blast, and the host was terrific. The dining room table made the weekend, allowing all of us to comfortably hang out in one location when sharing meals or playing games. The new sauna worked great, and was fun to try out.

My only complaints about the property was that it was near impossible to get down to the beach, there was no ice, and the water was not ideal for drinking. Had we known this in advance, we would have brought ice and our own drinking water.

I would definitely recommend this place to others, and would stay here again.

Thank you John.

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving the house so nice and tidy and thank you for the review. Although beach access out front is no yet available I am happy to announce that the ice machine is finally plumbed in and the water charcoal and uv filters are not ensuring the water coming out of the tap is nice and clean. I am happy to hear you had a good time and would welcome you and your friends back anytime.

Beautiful home in a beautiful area. Would absolutely recommend and stay again.

The owner (John) was kind and went the extra mile - we lost a shoe and he mailed it back to us.

Amazing getaway location

  • 4 of 5

I could not believe my eyes when I stepped into this cottage. The location is stunning and the cottage is beautiful. The group of 11 of us were so comfortable in the cottage, every common room was set up for comfort. The kitchen was well sized that 3 of us could be in there cooking/prepping meals, the dining table was SOOOOO gorgeous that we spent hours sitting at it chatting. The living area was great for curling up and watching movies or playing board games. And finally, the outdoor patio/living space was amazing! Hours spent lounging, BBQ, hot tubbing, playing in the yard. This place was perfect!

A Perfectly Lovely Location for a Family Christmas Reunion!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this striking location, with its beautiful view across the Juan de Fuca Straits to the Olympic Mountains, for our three generation Christmas reunion weekend. John was there when we arrived, doing a last minute cleanup to an already-clean home. He helped us in with some of our baggage, and gave us a tour of the house. The layout of the home was exactly as shown on the floor plan included in the ad, and the furnishings were clean and comfortable. While not luxurious, the house was well furnished and immaculately clean. The kids enjoyed the fourth bedroom with its bunkbeds and the Murphybed, while the first and second generation family members slept in the three upstairs bedrooms. The kitchen was adequate for preparing big meals, with all cooking tools and pots and pans we needed. Although there was no dishwasher, we adopted the plan of those who didn't prepare the meal, cleaned up afterwards, so it wasn't a problem. The younger two generations had a great hike down to the beach from a nearby park, and beachcombed to their hearts' delight. Our youngest member, a ten-year old boy, loved his bath in the soaker tub off the master bedroom afterwards. Two of our members tried out the outdoor hot-tub, but didn't wait until the water was more than lukewarm. That trial didn't last long! John gave us his phone number, and was quick to respond when we called. He had noticed that the coffee maker did not work, and replaced it readily. We spent all our time at the location, or on the beach nearby, and did not go to any local attractions or restaurants. We definitely do recommend this accommodation to our friends and family, as well as to all others interested in a quiet, comfortable place to spend some time. Thanks so much, John, for having us.

Amazing Mini-Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults) stayed in this lovely home for 3 nights in July and very VERY pleased with everything! The house is wonderful, location and views amazing! We cooked dinner every night on the BBQ and ate on the patio and had home-cooked breakfast each morning. The house is well equipped with all necessities. Only recommendation would be to have screens on the bedroom windows to allow the ocean breeze in at night as we could not leave open due to mosquitoes.

Highly recommend staying here! We plan on coming back.
