the paradise ended at the waters edge for this house. Full of clutter and mess. carpets in hallway and front bedroom needed cleaning.
The house smelled of musty oders all thru the house when we got there. Garbage was left in the can when we got there, which meant we had to take to the dump and pay. Since they don't have garbage pickup. Said they would be getting the garbage on June 21st and 30th and dump it. no one showed up of course. Cost us an extra 15.00 to dump before we left.
The washer had smelly wet towels left for us. Sheets in the dryer to fold. When I went to use cookie shees, etc, they were the most discusting things I ever saw. You had to sand blast them before using them. The patio chair on front deck was held together by duct tape as well as the front door jam.
The chair fell apart during a wind storm while we were there.
Probably a good thing before someone got hurt on it.
This home should be inspected before you guys list it on your site. I believe most people may only rent this place on short stays and don't see the real problems with it, until you are there for a long stay. The waterfront is beautiful, but ends there.
The real crapper was that their wall heater/cooler broke and for almost 2 weeks we had no heat. Good old Jessica told us that "maybe" Billy or Simon would be by to look at it, if the instructions on the wall did not work, which they did not. No body came by. Got an email from Jessica stating that we could build a fire in the stove or use the small heaters.
Was not fixed the day we left, with people coming in that same afternoon. Good luck to them!!!!!!
Filled with clutter and old stuff thruout the house.
You should really look at this place before allowing them to draw people in by the waterfront picture.
Lovely, relaxing getaway
We loved our time here. We have family that lives throughout the Seattle area that we have not seen in over 10 years. My brother & sister-in-law live in nearby Clinton and while they really wanted to show us around the island, we enjoyed being on the beach so much we never left the property once we checked in. We used the 2 larger kayaks, both fire pits, the hammocks and outdoor seating as well as the washer, dryer, piano, dishwasher and stove. Heat/Air unit took me a couple of tries before I was able to understand-once I 'got it' it worked very well. Loved all of the games, puzzles, the eclectic mix of dishes and being able to find just about any utensil needed. Plenty of choices for soaps, shampoo, sunscreen, etc, and tons of extra towels and linens available. We started also by washing dishes as we found some icky ones in the cabinets (we come across this a lot when using timeshares or extended stay properties so not an issue) Only thing I could not find was potholders, but as there were a gazillion dishtowels available was able to use those instead. We brought kites to fly and a telescope for star gazing and were not disappointed! We saw otters and harbor seals playing in the water from the deck as well as deer, eagles and assorted birds. Walking the beach we saw crabs, muscles and enormous schools of fish that came into the shallow during high tide. We all agreed it was like staying at a friend's house - modern enough to have comforts of a dishwasher and cooling/heating, but retaining a very cute and comfortable, quirky vibe.
This house is right on a quiet beach but within walking distance to restaurants and stores. It is perfect for kids with great sand, shells and rocks for castle building. There is also a park and playground just down the beach. Inside is a very cozy wood stove for fires on cool evenings. The house is stocked with everything you will ever need. This is our go to place every year. We love it.
One person's perspective that I would like to have read before renting
Clearly the vast majority of families have been happy staying at this property and I don't want to disparage that but it does have shortcomings. It is clean, has a responsive owner, is on the water and has room for 8-10 people making the nightly cost for such large groups reasonable. For a couple, the cost of the place is quite high after all the fees not disclosed at first are added in. Besides final cost, I was not happy with the quality of the rental itself (most things in it were old and had seen much better days). I have built and maintained homes and have some skills so know while this home is very clean it has not been upgraded as one would expect. My perceived negatives are: it has one rather small/dark bathroom with no vent so is hard to vent unless one opens the window enabling the neighbors to look it; there is a very small kitchen with hodge podge of old kitchen equipment; the house has odor (mentioned by a previous reviewer) that required re-washing of our clothes after we got home (we live on a beach so know this is not normal); VRBO pictures of inside were taken with fish-eye lens so indicate more space than is there; after pictures living space is cluttered with lots of old furniture; nearby houses are close with limited sound privacy when neighbors are present; lawn work next door jarred us out of bed early while lawn work on site disturbed us for several hours the one afternoon we wanted to sit quietly onthe deck. The work could have been scheduled when we were not there. The heating system was hard to figure out (old faded instructions on wall near thermostat which was actually hanging on wires out of wall) and included directions a client should never have to do (e.g. flip certain circuit breaker many times if heater doesn't come on). Some of the electrical outlets in the house were so old/used that items plugged in had to be held in to work. Several plugs had burn marks on them. I would not stay there again just for electrical system safety concerns which hopefully will be address soon, If folks are happy at this place, great. I wasn't.
My two sisters and I spent a weekend here. The owner was very nice and, prior to our visit, sent me helpful emails of explanation regarding some of the features of the house. This house is right on the water with an amazing view. It was too cold to enjoy the view from the outside, unfortunately, because it would have been nice to sit out on the deck or grass. However, we did enjoy the lovely, peaceful view of the water from the large windows in the dining area and living room. This house is an older house with an earthy, slightly funky vibe. It does have a bit of a musty odor, and, unfortunately, it was too cold outside to leave open the windows which may have been helpful. The beds were quite comfortable, which was a nice plus. The location is close to a great market and only 15 minutes from Langley that has some great restaurants and boutiques.
Relaxing and on the beach...it doesn’t get better than that!!
We had such a good stay! Having the beach just outside was amazing. The house was perfect for our family of four and 4 legged friend! Well stocked, for sure! We will definitely be back!!
