A Magical Retreat
Wow! Do not hesitate to book this prime getaway just minutes from downtown Seattle. Incredibly beautiful, out of this world comfortable, and it is a form of entertainment just to dwell in this sweet place. Alice and Don have shared their creativity, talent, and inspiration through the Banana Cabana in so many ways! It is a must see and experience to believe. We were planning on doing more exploring, but we were so entertained and comfortable in the Banana Cabana we barely left at all! What a fun and relaxing place to comfortably stay. All creature comforts were thought of and provided. Communicating with the property manager was a pleasure. The soaking tub/ shower is awesome! We will definitely recommend this little slice of artistic heaven to other couples and hope to “staycate” here again in the future. In the meantime, it will be missed.

5/5 Excellent
