Troy was most welcoming and as good as his word when a couple of minor glitches occurred - he was immediately contactable, and fixed them very quickly. The house is spacious, and delightfully decorated and furnished. The piece de resistance for us UK visitors was the huge porch, partially covered to enable rain use, with a lovely view of the marina, passing cormorants and eagles and ducks on the water. There is also a lovely nearby (5 mins walk) rainforest Burton park with access to a super piece of beach with clams and seagulls and ducks etc. All in all, much enjoyed. Thankyou Troy!
Troy's communicated with my husband and I several times. He made us feel welcome and made sure we knew how to find the property as we staying on an island and had to take a ferry.
The description and photos are very accurate. It is the perfect cozy place for 2 people with lots of room, more than a hotel room. The decor is warming and lovely.
The bed and bath towels are so soft, fluffy, and wonderful! The bed is dreamy!
This was an absolutely wonderful stay. Our hosts were inviting without being intrusive. We really enjoyed the private carriage house and took a wonderful, long walk on the beach which was both private and welcoming.
The carriage house was warm and sweet with a lovely view of the water.
We would stay here again in a heart (website hidden) THE BED IS GIGANTIC and comfortable.
The Crane Lodge was a great get-away. I really appreciated the apt reminders the week leading up, it kept me ready and excited.
The Crane Lodge is located just off Vashon Highway and it was really easy to get to. You don't need any previous experience with Vashon to get there.
The lodging was really intimate. It was perfect for one night. The location is quiet. It's perfect for a couple who are looking for a quiet weekend.
We happened to run into the owners of the property the next day. They were really sweet and were very curious about us. I felt at ease around them and through the process set up through the host.
Two critiques: one was that my girlfriend and I were excited about making a lavish dinner instead of going out to eat on the island. We didn't check to see if there was a stove, I think we just figured for some reason that it was equipped with a stove top. BE SURE TO NOTE there is just a hot plate. the second is that the toilet seemed testy. It might be the plumbing. After the bath, when draining, the toilet seemed to bubble and gurgle and then for the next hour or so it wouldn't flush. Nothing major.
Thanks again for the experience and we will be coming back to the island soon!
Great communication from Troy. Very clean, all amenities were perfect, respected our complete privacy, beautiful spot.
This place was adorable and Troy was super available for directions, etc -- and totally out of our hair for our romantic get away. The site is beautiful and Vashon is delightful. Be sure to get a blackberry cinnamon bun at Snapdragon!
We felt absolutely welcomed not just by Troy but everyone we met on the island! The space was lovely and cozy, creatively and beautifully laid out, and it was just charming. The view at night was lovely and both of us couldn't stop staring out the window. Overall, we were really pleased with our experience and would happily stay there again!
Called as I was on the ferry to let them know my approx arrival time. They sent me directions via text on where to go which was very easy to follow. Troys wife met me at the place and showed me where to park. I arrived at night time so i didnt realize how well and gorgeous the garden was maintained. The room is above a garage which has no bearing on how wonderful it is. The space is huge, nice comfy bed and clawtub bath so enticing I actually went and bought bath salts to check it out. Totally worth doing! There is a kitchenette but I didnt use any of that.
They also left a little couple of goodies for you - two mini bottles of wine and some cheese and crackers which was a very nice touch. Great stay strongly recommend.
Troy was an amazing host, he was helpful and informative about many of the events on Vashon. He took his time informing us, and he provided literature about the island including the history, current events, dining, art events, boating and biking. Troy was very kind and welcoming!
It is a nice place, nice neighborhood. Everyone was very friendly. It is above a garage not far from where they live but still private.
I don't have enough words to describe Troy and Marie! Communication was perfect; Troy is easygoing and Marie liked my memory foam :). The room and the house were left in pristine condition. I hope to host them again. Thank you Troy and Marie for being my guests. I would host you again any time. Gina
