Very clean and newly updated home. Great view of the bay from the home and the lower deck area with access to the water from the deck.

We had a mixed take on our five night stay at the Waterfront Getaway in Scandia due to cleaning issues.

We spent the first evening and morning concerned with cleaning and calling Vacasa about when the cleaner and comfort items would come. I have many photos for evidence if Vacasa needs. Not only was there no deep clean, there was obvious dirt in the kitchen, bathrooms and living area. Old used soap and a towel were even left behind. Two of the beds didn't have mattress protectors. The liquid soap dispensers were there with water that someone had put in them to get the last of the soap. The dispensers themselves were dirty. The stove top, microwave and fridge had literally not been touched for cleaning. The kitchen nook table had egg yolk smeared across it and the table runner, so it had not even been moved for wiping.

In addition, the dishwasher tablet and trash/bin liner packs were empty, and there were no paper towels. There was no cleaning spray either. Luckily we brought our own so we could wipe the kitchen on arrival due to Covid-19.

Note that due to the local ordinances, renters can come in the same day that other renters leave. I.e. there is no gap between stays.

Due to the set up of Vacasa, while they were as helpful as possible, they couldn't contact the cleaners directly. It took five calls from us to get some action. Vacasa refunded the cleaning fee.

While not directly a cleaning issue, unfortunately the owners will need to put in some other dining room chairs. White fabric seats don't work in a rental. Independently of each other, even the children baulked at siting on of the dining room chairs as it's getting so stained and dirty.

It's a pity that we wasted the first day of our only getaway for summer (due to Covid) in this way. Aside from the cleaning issues we had a lovely stay. The house looks out across Liberty Bay and have great access for kayaking (we brought ours) or low tide fossicking. It's a peaceful location and if you can get out on the water it's protected and you can see the seals closer up. The children had lots of fun. Our children are young, so enjoyed biking around the flat street.

The dining and living areas are spacious, as is the house overall. Its comfortable and furnished like a home. We would added onto our stay had there been availability.

If the cleaning standard and mattresses improves, I would recommend staying.

The only other negative is that the beds in the room with multiple beds are hard and have no topper, so you can feel the tufting etc through the sheets. They just need toppers (and mattress protectors).
Manager response:
Hi, Kathryn! We sincerely apologize for the missed clean you encountered and appreciate you allowing us the opportunity to address it during your stay. This is an unusual situation, and we have followed-up with our team regarding the matter. The property manager has shared your dining chair and mattress suggestions with the owner. Thank you!

This home is beautifully redone and decorated. Everything is very clean and comfortable. The community is lovely and there's lots of interesting wildlife nearby. The expansive waterfront views are very relaxing. The kitchen is very spacious and easy to cook in. Washer and dryer and lots of amenities in the home. Comfortable and relaxing home for friends and family.

The house has ample space for hanging out and relaxing. The view is fantastic! Sunrises, seals and boat traffic keep you staring at the bay. Kitchen is spacious for cooking and you won’t miss out on the views.

We had a lovely few days at this rental house. While the weather only truly cooperated for half of our stay, even in the rain, the house was comfortable and the location serene. Watching seals play in the water from the living room, and the deck perched above the beach, kicking over rocks on the beach to find tiny crabs and just lounging around the the house. The internet was strong and reliable. The kitchen was pretty well appointed. We would definitely consider coming back. The house was so quiet and peacefult!

We just stayed at this very nice home right on Liberty Bay. There’s a great deck (with built in seating and electricity) right on the water. Awesome place to have an evening dinner. We were surprised to find that when the tide goes out a little bit, there is a gravel beach to sit on and watch the water. Inside the house there is room for everyone, with a large living room, kitchen and two places places to dine. Several bedrooms upstairs, with one designed just for kids with its own TV. You could smell the ocean from the rear deck attached to the house and a large front and rear yard. Only problem was during a hot day, the house heated up and we couldn’t locate any fans in the residence, so we had to buy some to keep the house cool enough to sleep at night. Other than that, the place is a dream.
Manager response:
Thank you for providing feedback, Jamin. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention. We will look into adding fans, and we hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
