Beautiful, well appointed home with stunning views
This home was impeccably clean, and the kitchen stocked with all the cooking, baking, and dishware you need to make it your home base. The views are so stunning you won't want to leave the house for a minute! Comfortable beds and an incredible master suite, a cozy living room with plenty of seating and a gas fireplace, plus a hot tub and firepit outdoors -- this house has it all! It was a great spot for a girls' weekend, and we hope to be back!
Audrey's group were fantastic guests. They appreciated and took great care of the home. Communication with them was very easy, and they required no support while staying at the Whidbey Beach Retreat. We would be happy to host them again at either of our Whidbey properties and can recommend them to other vrbo hosts!
This was a wonderful location for a long weekend getaway with a large group. The house is well appointed, comfortable and inviting. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and baking. The view is even better than in the photos. We really enjoyed staying here and would do so again without hesitation! Thank you so much!
Colin and his very group were perfect VRBO guests. He was super easy to communicate with throughout the booking process. He required no support. And they left the home in great condition, taking care to follow our checkout instructions. We would be very happy to have Colin back and can recommend him highly to other VRBO hosts.
Wonderful property on the Puget Sound. Perfect getaway for four couples with room to spare.
Thanks so much Marci for your gracious feedback! We are happy your enjoyed your stay and found the beach to be spectacular.
Nice well-appointed home with great views!
We so enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. It was clean, spacious and very comfortable. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to stay on Whidbey Island!
The Freeman group were fantastic guests. They appreciated and took great care of the home. It was very easy to communicate with them. And they required no support while staying at the Whidbey Beach Retreat.
We would be happy to host them again at both of our Whidbey properties and can recommend them to other vrbo hosts!
What a lovely stay we had at Nancy's home on Whidbey! We gathered all the family and grandchildren, 11 total and enjoyed our week in this beautiful house.
The sleeping accommodations were perfect, and we were even provided a pak n' play and high chair for the babies. It was delightful to be in the master bedroom, sleep with the door open and wake up to the most gorgeous views of the water. We even piled all the grandkids in the master bath for their nightly clean-up after a hard day on playing and exploring the beach. The three bedrooms configuration upstairs with the large family room made for a perfect "away" room. The living area was a bit smaller than the pictures portrayed but was perfect for gathering in for morning coffee and we did use the gas fireplace on one cool, rainy night. The kitchen was well equipped with pots and pans, dishes, spices, condiments and appliances and was perfect for all our at home meals. Every night saw us enjoying happy hour on the patio, grilling, and eating our meals outside (great dining table for 8 adults). The fire pit was perfect for late night marshmallow roasts...remember to buy your firewood before arriving!
Of course the very best feature of the house is the location right on the water and the incredible 180 degree views! We were lucky to hit great summer weather and saw Mt. Rainer most days. There is a concrete wall beyond the grassy area and a rocky climb to navigate for beach access, but we had no problem, even with 2 year olds! You can also walk down the street a bit for easier access if needed. It would have been great to have a kayak at the house but the closest rental was farther away than we explored and we filled out time none the less. The tides were incredible, allowing for early morning clam digs and catching Dungeness crab...delicious!
The location is in a quiet community neighborhood, with a non -intrusive neighbor on one side and a quiet street in front of the house. The drive into Langely is about 10 minutes and the grocery about 15 minutes, we stocked up ahead of time. We were lucky enough to catch the Whidbey Island County Fair which was charming and spent and an afternoon there, then visited one of the close-by wineries.
I saw this house when it first came on VRBO and have been waiting for several years for an opportunity to book it. It was well worth the wait. I would highly recommend a stay at this lovely Whidbey home.
Fantastic Guests! Marci and her family were super easy to communicate with, took great care of the property, and were extremely understanding when a delivery of a new stove happened much earlier than expected! We are very fortunate to have such a great guest and really do appreciate your patronage. We would love to host you again at this property or our other Whidbey space.
I can recommend Marci highly to other vrbo hosts!
The ad straight up lies – don't trust it. Blatant misrepresentation of amenities and quality.
The ad specifically states “Low Bank Sandy Beach” in the title, and goes on to mention the sandy beach 3 more times: “Low bank sandy beach with bulkhead and nice concrete steps.”, “Amazing sandy beach location”, “The beach is almost entirely sandy (not at all muddy or silty), with a few places of smaller rocks”. That’s four clear references to a sandy beach, and access to it. This is a blatant lie: there is no “beach” at all. Oh, and the “few places of smaller rocks”? To reach the water requires rappelling down an 8-foot cliff of rocks, which extend all the way to the water. Note how the pics in the ad do not actually show the house in relation to the water. Go to Google Earth, and you will see the truth.
Additional aspects of our stay that do not measure up to the level described in the ad:
- We got a call 10 minutes before check-in that the stove was not working correctly. One burner out completely, and the other burner only started with a match. They said they would not be fixing it for us
- Upon arrival thermostat did not work. After significant exploration we determined that the circuit breaker was off. How was this not verified to be working before we checked in?
- DVD player was not connected to the TV. No instructions on how to do this. DVD door falling off, battery cover on remote missing completely
- Round table in TV room rocks back and forth – unable to work or play games on it, drinks slosh all over the place
- Xbox is useless: black and white only, but who cares: you cannot play anyway because all controllers were unusable, either from dead batteries or broken wires
- First wine glass we picked off the shelf had a ¾ inch crack on the lip. 2nd and 3rd were so dirty they were unusable until we cleaned them
- It is so bright that it is impossible to create a dark room while the sun is up. Master bedroom curtains are thin fabric; sun shines in full blast as soon as it is up (5 am). North facing rooms are bright before 6am, the slat blinds did little to dim them. Forget about taking a midday nap unless you can sleep in the sunshine
- The floor creaks all over the house, especially on the stairs. It is loud enough to hear people walking from everywhere
- Except for the new knives, kitchen utensils were old, cheap, mismatched, and highly used. Multiple burns, melted spots, and stains that would not come off
- The “game room” is a garage – have no illusions about it
This review is from a scammer who raised spurious complaints in order to pay nothing for a 3 night stay. While everything was fine during his stay, after leaving he threatened to leave a one star review unless we refunded his money. We chose not to pay. Refunding money to prevent a review encourages this behavior and undermines the positive premise of the vacation rental experience. We strive to provide guests a great experience and ask guests to call us with any issues . Our other reviews stand as more accurate examples of the guest experience. Regarding issues: 1. Many properties on Whidbey have either boulders or driftwood to climb over to access the beach. We have a short bulkhead with 4 feet of vertical height where there are boulders, which older adults and toddlers have navigated fine. There is also a concrete ramp with no barriers, found just 4 houses down. That information is conveyed in our onsite and pre-mailed instructions. The sandy beach in front of the property holds unparalleled exploring and clam digging except at high tide when the water reaches the bulkhead. 2. A technician was called for the stove issue, who advised us there was no temporary fix. We then purchased a new high end stove, but couldn’t take delivery until later (installed July 2019). We thought it best to notify them in advance, rather than to let them find this out on arrival. During the stay, there were 3 burners and the outside barbeque with a 4th burner. The 11 guests who stayed after them found the previous stove to be acceptable. 3.On Whidbey, air conditioning is rarely needed. As the AC heat pump fan makes some noise, we turned it off for early summer. One call to us and we could have turned the AC on. 4. On inspection, we found the BluRay DVD player door broken. While it did still play DVDs, we are replacing it. 5. We tested the Xbox and have purchased a new one. 6. A cracked wine glass is not acceptable and we are sorry they were impacted. We are glad that they did enjoy our new Japanese kitchen knives. 7. We have shades on every window, though not complete blackout shades. 7. Our floors are hand hammered cherry wood and they do make a little noise on the main level. With carpet throughout upstairs, no bedrooms have wood floors above them. In 7 years of guests, we’ve had no complaints. 8. The game room is a converted garage, designed and finished as a fun space with curtains, couches, wall hung art, where families share countless hours of play time.
