Day Island Seaside Cottage!!
The Day Island Cottage is located in University Place WA, on Day Island. This relaxing seaside get away is the perfect place to stay for a great vacation.
Just about an hour drive from Seattle and a little over half an hour from Seatac airport! …
Sandy met us at the cottage to provide us with the keys. She welcomed us with warmth and hospitality and left us a plate of home-made chocolate chip cookies.
The location was perfect for my family. My son and daughter-in-law live in Oklahoma. My daughter-in-law has only seen the ocean one other time, so she and the kids were outside as often as they could. They loved watching the boats go by, and seeing the occasional sea lion diving for food.
The property was very clean and well maintained, but I would suggest purchasing a second garbage bin. We had a family of seven staying at the cottage over Christmas holiday and filled the big bin quickly. Overall, the location was far enough away to feel like a vacation spot, but close enough to stores that items forgotten or needed, was not a problem. There is an active train depot close to the cottage, but that was not a problem for our family. We enjoyed hearing the train whistles and after a day, forgot they were there.
We did have to call the owners on Christmas morning for a minor problem. Walt was very polite and didn't seem to mind being woken up at 8 am to talk us through the solution.
We spent most of our time visiting with family so I can't comment on restaurants, or activities. We did go into Seattle for a day. It was an easy drive to the Public Market and Space Needle.
I would definitely recommend this vacation property to friends and family. I did forward the information to a family member and told her she needed to stay here on one condition: she was not allowed to request the same dates as I am. I would stay here again. Maybe sometime over the summer, so the kids can get more outside time.
Thank you, Sandy and Walt for letting us share your wonderful home.

Don't even think about looking at accomodations from one of those chain hotels. You will not be dissapointed with all that Day Cottage has to offer. The owners didn't miss a beat when they put their hearts and time into this property. You could not ask for a more perfect home to stay. The distance between the larger cities is not a big deal. And you can access the ferry system fairly quickly too.
We truly enjoyed our stay at Day Island Cottage. Out hosts Sandy & Walt were very helpful with suggestions of things to see & do. They included a folder of information answering all inquires we had emailed ahead of time. Fresh cut flowers in every room & fresh baked cookies greeted us.The cottage was beautiful and was everything you would imagine a seaside cottage should be. The view was amazing! We spent our evenings enjoying it, the sunshine, seals bobbing & the gorgeous sunsets. Our kids loved the loft which gave them their own room as well as there own tv room away from the parents. While the beach was rocky, we spent hours combing it for sea glass & shells coming home with lots of treasures. The neighborhood is very charming & we enjoyed strolling the island after dinner. It was a nice base to come home to after enjoying local activities such as glass blowing at the Tacoma Glass Studio, the Point Defiance Zoo/Aquarium & park and the many sights in the Seattle area. We would definitely recommend this property for families.
