Hi, I'm Janie!

I am an outdoors enthusiast! I love to do just about everything there is to do in the outside whether it be on the beach, in the mountains, on a boat. Travel and seeing the world is also a passion of mine. I love the perspective if gives and the involvment in other cultures is an education in itself. I also love to cook and particulary focus on the countries to which I have been.

I am a reading specialist in a local school district south of Seattle and love my job. I teach in a high poverty environment which presents many challenges and also many rewards. Some of the students have had experiences I hope I never have and feel it is our job to provide a safe, nurturing place for them to be.

I have three adult children who are the light of my life! My oldest son lives in Doha, Qatar and lives with his beautiful wife; my middle son lives in Seattle (yeah for family times!) and my daughter lives in Barcelona, Spain with her great husband who is an MBA student there. They are all loving living the life!!

Here is my property:

A truly unique place; literally on the private beach with sweeping western view of Puget Sound, Olympic Mountains, several islands, and if you're lucky, the occasional pod of orca whales. Feel the serenity of a quiet Puget Sound getaway as soon as you enter - hard to believe...

I can't say enough about this luxurious yet comfortable property. Gleaming wood, amazing art and glass features, not to fail to mention state-of-the-art appliances, including a silent dishwasher. The fireplace, patio and almost touchable water made us change some plans to stay in! We brought fresh oysters back to "our" patio. All the stonework, along with so many other details, made us feel the owners' goal was to provide the most sumptuous experience. She spent time with us in advance, and when she learned we would be making bouillabaisse, she brought over a crock pot and provided all of the spices we needed. There were detailed instructions for everything in the house and a favorite of mine: a second set of driving directions which provided the most beautiful route. And a big test: when I forgot a phone charger, she met me to return it to me, before we left town. Supreme and warm experience before, during and after. Katy Gilberts and Randy Farber, Idaho

From I live in West Seattle on the salt water. The beach is my front yard and I love it! Waves, gulls, seals playing: everything the beach includes.
