The only problem we had with this beautiful getaway location was that we did not want to leave. The house is wonderfully kept up and the island is welcoming. We will definitely be retuning as soon as possible.
100% perfect house and wonderful hosts, looking forward to a return trip!
How do I begin to describe the most perfect week at Fran's!? The experience was unforgettable, and Fran made it easy from start to finish. If you are looking for the ultimate getaway, that feels like you are hiding away in the mountains, this is the place to be. The property is well kept, beautiful and spacious. I felt immediately at home in the large kitchen, and we were able to cook delicious meals every night and enjoy our meals outside taking in the view. Our 3 daughters had endless fun playing in the backyard, playing board games, exploring the property, walking down to lake Josephine, (where they rent paddle boats at no cost), swimming at the ol swimming hole, and walks on the golf course. It felt like walking through a fairy tale.
I can't say enough about what a great experience this was, we are already looking to buy property on this lovely island.
Fran's beds were very comfortable, the spice cabinet and kitchen tools were well stocked, she was very responsive, and everything was clean and tidy. Don't pass up this gem
We had a great time at this cozy cottage on Anderson Island! Fran and Jim provided everything we needed and more. We especially liked having a grill and a fireplace handy.
Fran and Jim's Island Getaway was the perfect place to stay. They met us at the ferry to give us the keys, and everything went extremely smoothly. The house is beautiful and has all the amenities one could need. I'd recommend staying here if you're looking for a relaxing getaway!
Fran was incredibly responsive and very nice. She was clear what she expected from her guests and in response, was clear as to what she and Jim would provide. The home was perfect - clean - beautiful - and the exact amount of space we needed.
I would rent her Beautiful Island Vacation Home again anytime!
Fran and Jim arrived at the home before we did and greeted us at the door. They were great about communication and coordination, as we prepared to take the ferry over from Steilacoom.
The home was immaculate and the perfect place for our group of five (4 adults and one baby). It was spacious, light filled, and stocked with amenities. In the kitchen, great cookware, utensils, knives, and dishware. Fran and Jim let us borrow their two mountain bikes, and we had a nice adventure on the island roads. The beds were very comfortable and the linens and pillows very welcoming. There were no shortage of towels, which was greatly appreciated. We enjoyed using the gas fireplaces!
The home is pretty child proof for a one-and-a-half year old.
Jim and Fran let us know that we were welcome on the private Riviera golf course lands, as their guests. They also pointed out a general store, which was very convenient and would have any last-minute items that you needed from a grocery.
All in all, we greatly enjoyed our stay in Fran and Jim's home! Thank you!
About the Host, Fran
I am a retired secondary and college teacher that has enjoyed venturing into other occupational fields: real estate professional, local elected councilwoman, and now writing, gardening and quilting. My fun activities are reading, entertaining, hiking, traveling, watching the hummingbirds at my feeders, golfing and flying my own airplane, a Beech Sundowner. My health activities are walking and jogging, going to the gym, yoga and gardening.
I believe in taking advantage of meeting many interesting people, learning about the world by traveling, enjoying the world around me, and making everyday be a positive impact on my life. My list of to-do's is always far longer than I will every accomplish but I love trying so many new things. My days are not long enough nor will my life, on this earth, ever be long enough to accomplish everything I want to try or do. Life is so full of wonders.
My life would not be as full if it were not for being married to a wonderful man named Jim, who shares many of my same interests. We have been married for 34 years and have built a life full of many memories of all our conversations and activities. Jim has been an Air Force officer, rocket scientist and defense engineer. We both love to spend time in our Island home to relax and remove ourselves from the faster life on the mainland. We support each other and work and play together. Our children and grandchildren do not live on the west coast of the country so therefore some of our travel is to see family.
Jim has lived in Japan while in the Air Force, I lived in Germany while my spouse was in the Army so therefore that set the pattern for traveling to other lands. We have daughter Monica with six grandchildren living permanently on the west coast of France, daughter Cindy living in Ithica, NY and daughter Joy living in Abu Dhabi. Some of our trips have also included; Turkey, Greece, most of Europe, including Norway, Sweden and Denmark and the British Isles plus Ireland, Mexico, Canada, Panama and will travel to Indonesia and Bali in July of this year. I still want to spend more time in South America and Antarctica.
We would love to share our little bit of Island living with you. Come stay awhile.
Fran and Jim
