    Beautiful location, house is well stocked and beds are very comfortable. Only negative....the bathroom and kitchen are VERY old and badly in need of updating. Everything else is wonderful....very comfortable, close to Langley, clean, beautifully decorated, well stocked kitchen, wonderful yard and deck. We had a great time!! The view and the beach are so gorgeous.

    The house and beach front location is beautiful! Neutral colors, down bedding and uncluttered decor provide a peaceful environment and the sun room is delightful! Perfect for gathering as well as room enough for spaces in our togetherness.

    Out stay was just after the Thanksgiving Holiday. My sister in law and I were looking for a beach cottage on the water for a much needed girls get away and this home was just right. We were pleased from the moment we walked in the door. The views of the water were incredible throughout the house and there was a lit Christmas tree to welcome us! New comfortable furniture in the living room was just right for us to cozy up on with a glass of wine by the fire. Though you can't burn wood, those Duraflame logs are pretty darn nice! The kitchen was surprisingly equipped with quality pots, pans, knives and high end appliances and the cupboards were stocked with spices, condiments and coffee. Certainly any cook would enjoy the opportunity to use that Wolf range! There are two bedrooms upstairs and one bedroom down. We slept well with the comfortable mattresses, pillows and linens. Both bathrooms are downstairs, one is a full bath, the other is a half bath off the downstairs bedroom. It is important to note that the stairs leading to the upstairs bedrooms are steep and may be challenging for some to navigate. There is a full laundry room, which we did not use. The beach is literally just steps out the back door, leading to a level, sandy beach perfect for strolling for shells and rocks. It was cool during our stay, so we did not have the opportunity to enjoy opening the outdoor room and backyard but what an added living space to this home when the weather is warm! I imagine there are some amazing sunsets also. There is a grocery store just a few miles away and Joe's Woodfire Pizza has some delicious takeout food. I am hoping to return again and explore Deer Lagoon just across the road. We highly recommend this home.

    Krista S from Bellingham, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We thoroughly enjoyed this lovely beach front home. The weather cooperated and we were able to open the "walls" on the back of the sunroom both days while enjoying the sea air and chattering Blue Herons. Night time was equally as lovely with more heron chattering and a beautiful stars/moon. The house is very comfortable, quiet, nicely located and was clean. The small garage housed a ping pong table that was set up nicely. The only negative was the midges or what looked like fruit flies.

    This was the perfect house for a girls weekend trip. One could tell the place was recently updated and tastefully decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed (and then some!). Location was good. We definitely want to come back when the weather is warmer to take advantage of the deck! Only con is there is 1.5 bathrooms to share. Needed to plan showers between so many girls!

    We enjoyed our stay at Sunlight House! The beach and the view is magnificent! Although the house is older it was clean and in good condition with very comfortable beds and upscale linens. We also enjoyed the privacy made possible by beautiful native grasses and the lattice 'fence'. We can't say enough about the management company that took care of a minor issue we had - the staff very responsive and professional!

    This is everything you would want in a beach house. Just steps from the beach where the low tide provides a great morning walk and the high tide a nice afternoon swim. The house is very clean and well appointed with nice linens and a great kitchen. For any questions during our stay the property management was very responsive and helpful. If you are looking for a beach house on Whidbey, this is it.

    Sara Elizabeth H from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    My family (husband and kids (ages 10, 12)) really enjoyed our stay. The best parts were being directly on the beach and the open patio and deck. Since this property is new to the rental market, the appliances, linens, etc. were all new. The kitchen was very well stocked with cookware and tools. I was grateful for the A/C unit in the dining room since the first two days were pretty hot, although it cooled down at night. The low tides on our doorstep were an unexpected bonus.

    Christine and Sean R from Sammamish, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed at this home for a weekend break. It was perfect for my toddler as you can walk straight out of the home and onto the beach. The kitchen has lots of high end appliances and the furniture is nice and new. As mentioned in previous reviews the cabinetry and bathroom does need an update but I think that this is reflected in the price per night. I would recommend this house for people looking to be on the beach.

    Audrey S from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    My family of 5 (2 adults, 2 kids and a baby) stayed here and had a wonderful time! It's a cute lil cottage and was perfect for our single family. The furnishings are REALLY nice and modern and make up for the age of the cabinetry in the house. The owners have really done their best to make this as comfortable as possible without actually remodeling it. The house was also very clean.

    The sun room and back deck are the most awesome things about staying here. The furniture is perfect with ample room to lounge. The access to the beach is wonderful and the views are incredible.

    Minor things to know with renting this to keep in mind:
    - As I mentioned, the cabinetry in the kitchen and bath are pretty outdated; however, the owners have updated appliances and provided furnishings to make it as clean and modern as possible
    - The stairs to the upper bedrooms is REALLY steep, such that we had to be pretty careful with our kids going up and down them. If you have a toddler, I'd be careful.
    - Both the full and half bath are downstairs, something to keep in mind for whoever sleeps in the upstairs bedrooms (which are both larger in size than the bedroom downstairs)

    Overall, we loved our stay here. The owners provided everything we needed in terms of towels, linens, things in the kitchen, etc. The location is wonderful, not only for the beach access, but it is really close to Langley and to a nearby grocery store (The Goose) for stocking up. We would absolutely return here.

    Sharon W from Graham, WA recommends this vacation rental

    The back deck facing the Sound is perfect. Wonderful views. Perfectly equipped. The house is also well-equipped/appointed. My only suggestion would be to update the kitchen cabinetry. It is old and grimy. I felt like I needed to wash my hands after touching a cabinet or knob.

    • Manager Responded on 7/14/2017

      Hi Sharon! We are really happy to have you as our first guest in the house! That view really can't be beat, so it's great that you were able to enjoy it for the week of the Fourth of July. It looks like the weather held up nicely for quite the fireworks show. Thank you for the suggestion on the cabinets. Although they have been in the kitchen for a while, the home was professionally cleaned both before your stay and before any new guests stay in the home. We will be sure to pay extra attention to these details so that every guest enjoys their stay to the fullest. We hope that you come back again soon to take advantage of all that Sunlight Beach has to offer!
