Fully equipped, just relax!
This place was fantastic and easily the best kept and best furnished dog friendly rental I've ever had. And although I never met the owner face to face, he was very easy to work with and quick to respond to email. Pretty much anything you need is already at the place (and even though we were unable to find a hairdryer, there was so much stuff provided, I suspect it was there, somewhere!). There were board and video games, and several dog beds, a 3 person kayak, lots of sports equipment, you name it. The kitchen was stocked with staples and condiments, bu do stop at the Fred Meyer en route to get groceries though, there's no stores on the island! ) In addition to the house's amenities, the gated community has a pool and tennis court, and even a couple of picnic areas on the water with propane barbecues you can use. There's a spit area with charcoal bbq's as well, and between Memorial Day and Labor Day, dogs are allowed off leash and in the water on the spit, as long as they stay below the bulkhead. (Whacky! -- Although we had our Retriever and Malamute read the rule several times, and tried to teach them what a bulkhead was, they couldn't really understand the whole "this sand's ok, that sand's not" concept. I would have liked to have been at the homeowner's mtg when they wrote that rule...but I digress!) To sum up: Great place, great host. We'll be back!
