                    My friends and I stayed at the Penn Cove Playhouse while attending a writers' conference at the Captain Whidbey Inn. The Playhouse was fully stocked with everything we needed to make meals and relax (although there was not much time to do that!) And being January, we weren't able to enjoy the deck and bbq, but I would highly recommend this place for families and small groups.

                    Recommended for: Sightseeing, age 55+, girls getaway, families with teenagers.

                    We are family of ten, including 5 kids. This was the perfect house for an enjoyable New Years family getaway. Beautiful house with plenty of room in a beautiful location. Lots of games for all ages. Thank you.

                    We just spent an absolutely perfect Thanksgiving! The house was extremely clean, spacious and well laid out. We had 5 adults, 2 children and an enormous dog, and had plenty of room to spare. The kitchen is great for cooking with multiple cooks. There was more than enough seating for meals and for hanging out in the living room. Lots of board games, kids toys, musical instruments and magazines for entertainment. Very private lot, and the kids enjoyed the treehouse in the yard. The beach is just a short walk away. The views from the beach are stunning. If you are fussy about such things, bring your own knives. Otherwise, I can't think of a thing that was missing. Take a flashlight if you need to walk the dog at night -- it is dark out there! Theresa was very accommodating, and returned out deposit right away. We will absolutely be back.

                    My family and I rented the Playhouse this past weekend for a men's retreat and had a wonderful time! There something for everyone, which we all thought would be more difficult than it turned out to be. Our party included a 13 yo and men in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 60s and every single one of us left impressed. We will certainly be coming back in the future. Thanks again!

                    Manager response: We were honored to be the location for the 13th birthday celebration for a young man and his male family members and are even happier that a good time was had by all! What a lovely gift this boys mother gave him, secretly knowing she would have loved to come spend a weekend on the Island herself, but understanding it was a "Man's weekend"...

                    Beautiful home. Great for our group of 8 ladies to share a girly weekend. The walk to the beach was slightly longer than we expected, but the beach itself and the walk there were beautiful. Coupeville was close by and demands a second visit. The home was not as clean as other rentals I've used in the past (e.g., expired items in the refrigerator, sticky on kitchen counters). Also the kitchen was not as fully stocked as one would hope in terms of basic items such as a large salad bowl for large group, kitchen garbage bags, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, wine glasses, larger casserole dish, etc. Our group made due and enjoyed a lovely retreat. Loved the cozy fireplace and family room for lounging and chatting. Would have loved a music player in which to plug our MP3 players, but enjoyed the home's selection of CDs, especially Dad's mixes. Thanks to the home owners for sharing their beautiful property.

                    Manager response: It is nice that this particular guest decided to review the home twice and rephrase all her concerns, but as the manger I was present on the last cleaning and there are several casserole dishes in the cupboard, a very large salad bowl and more than a dozen wine glasses. There is a drawer with foil and other plastic products (possibly mistaken by this guest as a junk drawer) and the additional garbage bags are under the ones in the can and have never been undiscovered before. I am glad that this group enjoyed their stay overall and understand that pleasing people completely is not always possible 100% of the time. We appreciate the feedback when constructive, and are sad when some people are unable to find simple solutions in a fully equipped and stocked home, albeit not their own familiar environment. The beach is a 5 minute walk and is posted private property so that people other than residents and guests cannot enjoy it. We have supplied a wagon for children to ride to the shore and a rolling ice chest just in case...

                    I stayed at this property with a group of girlfriends for a weekend getaway. First impressions were wonderful. The property is beautiful and finishing are nice and in good shape. Getting into the house was easy and exactly as described, which is always appreciated. The beach is a short walk away. There was a big no tresspassing sign on the beach but after some discussion we decided it must be for the use of the local people or it would have been mentioned in the description. While at the house we walked into town and shopped in the quaint stores on the waterfront. There is a nice selection of various shops to explore. If you go, be sure to walk out on the pier to the coffee shop. They make a great latte and have a nice selection of local products. We also visited Fort Ebey which has some great hiking trails, fantastic view of the sound and some cool bunkers to explore. I was in the loft with the king bed & futon and two other people. It was spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. I was glad that I brought my own pillow because the ones provided were a bit thick for me - but that is strictly a personal preference. The bathroom in that room has the beautiful jetted tub, just be prepared that, although it has a hand held shower head, there is no actual shower and it takes a little practice to wash with the hand held shower without soaking the rest of the room as there isn't any type of curtain. There were a few things that if I were the owner I would want to know, so I could address the appropriate people. The expectation when staying in a vacation rental is that the home will be clean and not feel like it's been occupied, so the open cereal boxes in the pantry and other used foodstuffs was a little off putting. We also cleared a bunch of expired condiments from the refrigerator. The house itself was clean on the surface but really needed a good housekeeping - lots of spiderwebs, dirty drawers in the bathrooms we even found an eaten bowl of carmel corn in a nightstand. There are three junk drawers in the kitchen which seems really odd - and again adds to the occupied feel. Finally the coffee maker is super slow, taking more than 20 minutes to brew a pot of coffee. I gave the property 4 stars because of the feeling that we had that it was occupied - not the fresh new feel that we've come to expect. Overall we had a wonderful time and I would definitly recommend this property.

                    Recommended for: Families with young children, sightseeing, girls getaway, romantic getaway.

                    Manager response: This is one of the busiest vacation rentals in Coupeville on Whidbey Island and generally has a 4 hour window between guests. It is the second home for some very wonderful people that choose to share instead of lock it and leave it...They have belongings, food, tools, junk drawers and many items that are necessary when they are visiting. The home is warm and inviting and far from sterile. It is a happy place for gathering with friends. The jacuzzi tub is not designed to be a shower, it has a wand for rinsing and should never be used as a stand up shower as the walls are not waterproof...I find it odd that that did not register. We enjoy managing the home so that it can be shared and enjoyed by all....

                    My friends and I stayed at the Playhouse this past weekend while we were attending a wedding in Coupeville. We had an amazing time! The house was perfect for our group: clean, organized, comfortable, with games in the closet :) The setting was absolutely gorgeous as it is nestled in the trees with a view of the water. The owners were incredibly helpful and made sure we would be taken care of even though they were going to be out of town at the time. I would highly recommend the Playhouse for your Whidbey Island getaway! We are keeping this one bookmarked for our next trip!

                    The house was very lovely and welcoming; it felt like we were staying in a beautiful treehouse. It was great for all of us to have our own space as an adult family. The weather wasn't very good but we didn't care. We cooked together and played lots of games. We hope to return in the future. Thanks so much.

                    We enjoyed our stay over a holiday weekend, with our extended family. The beach was close by and great for shells and such, but with our toddler granddaughters we were looking for a more sandy beach, so we didn't spend much time there. There were things for the girls to play with, and our adult children loved playing the trivia games out on the deck into the late night! Everything was basically supplied, and plenty of room for all. Beautiful views of Mt. Baker from the deck. Loved the fire pit. Therese was responsive, quickly answering any questions. I would recommend this property to a family or anyone looking for a quiet getaway. Received our deposit back promptly - thank you for a great weekend!

                    We had a wonderful 3-day weekend at the Penn Cove Playhouse with our 2 sons, their wives and 3 grandchildren. There was plenty of space for everyone, and the kids loved the big yard and woods to explore (with a slide). It's very secluded, with lots of privacy and scenery. A deer even paid us a visit. The beach is about a 10 minute walk down a rather steep driveway and several streets....but it's well worth it, especially during low tide. The kids had so much fun exploring the tide pools, identifying clams, crabs, starfish, snails, sand dollars and snails. We also had a great time at the local county fair in Langley....we didn't realize it was going on that weekend until we arrived, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a very short drive into Coupeville, which is a quaint, little town with a nice pier. The Penn Cove mussels (world famous) were excellent at Christopher's. All-in-all, this is a great home for a vacation!
