We enjoyed a nice stay at the "Quiet Retreat by the Sound" for 3 nights. It was clean, quite and comfortable. Far enough off the beaten path to be relaxing and quite, but close enough to be convenient. Gracious hosts with a nice welcome basket and snacks. All the basic necessities are there for the kitchen if you want to cook. We were traveling with children, so the proximity to parks was a bonus. Would definitely consider staying there again!
We had a wonderful weekend at the Retreat by the Sound. The hosts were so welcoming down to chocolates on our pillows and treats to greet us. It is a beautiful space, and we hope to be back again next year!
We had a wonderful time staying with Joan and Jerry! We hosted a "meet the baby" weekend for our NW family. The space was comfortable with plenty of seating for our family to relax. The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed to prepare meals throughout the weekend. We got lucky with beautiful weather in January and enjoyed the view of the sound. When the internet wasn't working in the unit, Jerry rushed out to buy a new extender immediately. The beds were comfortable and they made sure we had everything we needed for our baby, including a Pack & Play to sleep in and a baby bathtub. We couldn't have asked for anything else - thanks. Joan!
Gerald and Joan's place was wonderful! It was just my Mom and me so we had plenty of space to roam around. The beds were comfy, lots windows to see the gorgeous gardens and the Sound. They gave us the name of the yummiest, cutest Italian bistro that took maybe ten minutes to get to, and it was so good we ate there twice. The gardens are really nice, and the space comes with a private deck so you can sit out at night, have a glass of wine, and enjoy the scenery. We were lucky enough to be there when the apples were ripening on the trees, so we picked some and they were delicious! Very nice place, we highly recommend it.
We love the energy of downtown Seattle, having lived and worked for years in the heart of this vibrant and diverse city. This was a return trip for business. The Mullen's space was a convenient respite, 30 minutes outside of Seattle, half of that being a beautiful drive through the forests of the Emerald City.
The amenities of the space and additional host accommodations made this a move in ready space. A well appointed kitchen and out door grill provide all of what is needed to make it a "staycation". Our arrival timed with tired and hungry and Joan was quick to recommend Gino's Bistro, minutes from "home". We did carryout or dine in three of our four nights there. Friendly ambience, amazing pizza options and an extensive array of fresh and local entree's. Back home at the Mullen's, a unique outdoor living space incudes' an elevated sitting area and fire pit overlooking the gardens and a view through the pines of the Sound.
This space was a perfect fit for our needs.
Joan is an exceptional host. snacks, including a nice bottle of wine were provided upon our arrival. She and Gerald gave us complete privacy throughout our 5 day stay. Every need was provided for. The place is large and included a wonderful deck and BBQ pit. If we ever come back to the area we will be sure to book this great place.
