LOVED it! The house was clean, spacious, very comfortable and well-appointed with wonderful windows and views. And the great hiking/walking trails, beach, and clubhouse - made it the perfect place for our family gathering! Everything we had hoped for - and then some! Thank you so much for making it available! Laura (& Anne) were both very helpful and informative and the whole process went very smoothly. We would love to return and would highly recommend it to others!
Laura was a very responsive and informative host. Her house was lovely and had a beautiful view of the water.
We had a great relax weekend. Hastine Island is a pretty sleepy island, so it is perfect if you truly want to escape the city and be surrounded by nature. From the living room you get awesome views of Rainier in a clear day. The house is really nice, clean and has everything you need for cooking. I would recommend you bring your food!
This wonderful home was perfect way to get a way from it all in a beautiful setting! Laura was very responsive and accommodating, the house was as described, and very clean and well equipped.
Once you arrive, you won't want to leave, so as another reviewer said plan to bring all the food and supplies you'll need for your stay.
Ann was a wonderful guide, check in person. The wine and chocolate were so nice for me an my girlfriends! Thanks
Laura was great from the beginning of getting the reservation to checking out. She answered all emails promptly and in good detail. The house was exactly as purported, we had no issues, and the island and beaches were fantastic. We plan to come back again. David P.
Great house and a great view. We had a blast. We love the Island and go every year. We have rented several houses on the Island with mixed results. Laura's house was clean and comfortable and everything was as advertised.
My globetrotting life is your win, because I love to share my favorite places in the world with like-minded folks! Our family's time is split between the Puget Sound, Alaska, and my original home country of Finland. Ask me about the great outdoors, the Northern Latitudes, or flying, and chances are I won't shut up.
I look forward to hosting you and those loved by you, and will do my best to help you enjoy the life out there (or here) to its fullest!
