    a guest from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We are a married couple with 3 kids that rented the house for four days.

    PROS: The location is great. Downtown Coupeville was close and so was a Fort Ebey State Park. The other two homes next to this one were unoccupied during our stay & it was a nice and quiet. The waterfront location is perfect for kids, it provides plenty of entertainment for hanging out at the house. The home was clean and fairly well maintained. There were clean towels and the bathroom was sufficient for the size of our family. The kitchen works well for reheating food, not so much for cooking a meal. We brought precooked food on this trip, so it wasn't an issue. There is a coffee pot and plenty of dishes for meals. The beds were comfortable and the linens were clean. There are beach toys on the lower deck for the kids to use on the beach. There is a large selection of DVD's and board games for family entertainment. You can hear the waves while you sleep.

    CONS: The biggest inconvenience was pest control showing up unannounced the first morning of our stay and spraying pesticides while we were at the house. We called the property manager and were told the owner scheduled the service. We were put in a position to manage a vendor that wasn't ours for a home we didn't own. The property manager apologized after we called them to report what was happening, but the vendor was mostly done by the time it was all sorted. The other downside of this place was the added fees. We paid 52% above the advertised nightly fee in check out fees, service fees and required insurance. All that should be wrapped up in the nightly fee since we were required to pay them all. The downstairs bedroom is EXTREMELY cold. The spiral staircase to the downstairs bedroom is VERY narrow. You'll have to the outside side door to get any luggage into that bedroom space downstairs.

    We would recommend this home to friends with the above mentioned caveats and we'd definitely come back.

      Thank you for your review and feedback! We are glad to hear your overall stay on Whidbey Island was enjoyable and you were able to take advantage of our parks and beaches. We have been in contact with the owner of this home and with the pest control company to make sure their service is done when the home is vacant in the future. The owner wants to extend their apologies for any inconveniences that this caused! Unfortunately we are not able to wrap all fees into the rent as we have to follow the guidelines of the advertising source (such as VRBO or Airbnb), and they require all fees to be disclosed separately. All fees are disclosed when a quote is provided upon a customer choosing dates. It is important to us to be transparent and up front to our customers and we do our best to make this happen, while staying in the parameters of the advertising agent. Thank you for staying with us and we hope you can stay again at a future date!

    We had an amazing time. The view from any window was spectacular, especially the sunrise with Mt. Baker in all it's glory. It was very quiet and relaxing. The downstairs bedroom was challenging to get to and struggled to warm up when we visited in March.

    Judy E from Underwood, WA recommends this vacation rental

    Their place was clean, right on the water. Could hear the water all night. Easy to maintain. Fun headquarters to explore from. Great shopping in Langley with unique goods. Would go back happily. There were some fees that made the place expensive. Added cleaning fee etc, which should be included in the daily rental prices. So ended up being rather more expensive than I originally thought.

      Thank you for your comments. We are glad you you enjoyed your stay on Whidbey Island and would "happily" return to the Island. We hope to help you with your next stay on the the Island.

    Tamara P from Mount Morris, IL recommends this vacation rental

    Overall we had a great time on our weeks stay. House was smaller than originally thought but ended up fitting our needs perfectly. House was very cozy and clean. Beautiful views of the water! Only down side was since we were there for 6 nights with 5 people - the lack of bath towels was a slight inconvenience.

    • Manager Responded on 1/8/2018

      We are so happy to hear you had a great time! Most of the homes we manage have a washer and dryer for guests to wash towels on longer stays, so we apologize for the inconvenience. We will talk with the owner about getting more towels for longer stays, since there is not a washer a dryer at this home. Thank you for your review and feedback!

    a guest from Lawai, Hi recommends this vacation rental

    This was an absolutely amazing cabin escape. We booked last minute on a Sunday,everything confirmed and ready the next day. Spotless, beyond comfortable and serene. We are planning our next trip there and we are coming from our own Hawaiian paradise. Just perfect. We were concerned that the driveway down to the property would be a problem with the sedan we rented as a previous post stated a four wheel drive vehicle may be necessary. This was the farthest from the truth. Piece of cake. any vehicle can make it down and up. The management went above and beyond to arrange this last minute vacation. You are awesome! Mahalo!

    This beautifully crafted cottage was perfect for our adventure away from the city. It's perfectly situated on the beach and has unbelievable views. There aren't many better views to wake up to in the morning and sip on your coffee. The cottage itself was spacious and the kitchen had everything we needed to make a delicious meal. Loved it!

    We absolutely loved staying in this cabin. It was well equipped with everything we needed and more. Unfortunately we didn't have much time to spend at the cabin but what time we did get to spend was truly wonderful. We woke up early one morning and the sunrise was beyond beautiful. And the living room and fireplace made for the most cozy evenings.

    We had the best experience at this home on Penn Cove. The home was very comfortable and the views from inside and outside the home were awesome! We loved sitting on the deck or at the kitchen table while watching the jelly fish or seals. On our last day, 3 orcas came into the bay and swam through the mussel platforms --- it made our day! Love this place and will definitely come back!

    a guest from Columbus, OH recommends this vacation rental

    This home is quaint with a rustic cottage feel and includes many upgrades. Modern bathroom, kitchen with premium Viking stove and just about everything you need for your stay. Lovely location right on the water with side patio and grill. Has 3 adequate bedrooms (although the lower bedroom is tough to access from the tight spiral staircase.) Had to take in the suitcases from the downstairs outside door. Great views to the bay. We saw seals and tons on starfish. Would rate higher except for the following: lower bedroom access as mentioned, driveway is shared with 3 cottages, very steep and does not have a flat landing area at the top where it meets the road or much room to maneuver at the bottom. Site distance at top of drive is dangerous. We thankfully had an SUV,otherwise not sure how we would have gotten out. Wish it had at least another half bath. With us and our two grown children, it was difficult to maneuver with one toilet and sink. No washer or drye. Internet access was very sporadic and unable to be accessed/linked to TV (which was a new smart tv) so we couldn't access movies (Netflix or HULU etc) from the TV or our personal devices. MGMT company was unable to resolve internet. This might not be an issue for others but there is no landline in the home and cell service was sporadic (we have Verizon) so even trying to download movies to our devices, or getting text from our relatives who live on the island was tough. Would have liked to use the kayaks but understand the liability issue, so maybe provide location to rent them in the area ad state in your guest book. Liked the proximity to Coupeville.
