  • Perfect little retreat

    "We arrived with the rain and drizzle of fall. This was to be expected. I'd love to return in the summer when we'd be better able to enjoy the boats. We took walks in the woods and I walked around the loop. The deck was perfect for a glass of wine and a good book. Or, if the weather was more accommodating, lunch and dinner. The cottage (more a cottage than a cabin) is beautifully appointed and immaculately clean. It is also full of personality. The kitchen is the very best equipped kitchen of any VRBO rental I've ever been in and everything was attractive and in perfect working order and, again, immaculately clean. It was a wonderful treat and sight for sore eyes for weary and hungry travelers to find the welcome basket of salmon, cheese and crackers, cookies, and wine on the counter. Anything you could need in the way of laundry supplies--even basic cooking supplies were there. No need to run to the store to buy detergent or paper products or salt and pepper or more. The beds were perfect. Views spectacular. Even with the less than perfect weather, there were boats going past daily. I loved the cute little hobbit doors--especially the Dutch Door entry. The only downside is the steep climb up and down front the parking area. When Erin says "steps" she means stairs. We got good at it, though--but it's best to be prepared that carrying luggage and groceries in will be a bit more difficult than you may have expected and to plan accordingly. Another disappointment was the lack of good eating establishments on the island. If they were there, we didn't find them. I have to say, though, that Zombie's burger was one of the best I've ever eaten, so don't let the weird name keep you away. I'd expected lots of opportunities to indulge in fresh seafood--but no. If there's a seafood restaurant, it was hidden away somewhere. If I'd been in the mood for cooking, there was a plentiful supply of organic veggies etc everywhere you looked. It's very easy to get to the ferry and back to the mainland if you want to, but we got Island Happy and didn't want to leave. We took one trip back to meet friends and couldn't wait to get back to our island. We could have taken the ferry to Seattle and eaten seafood--but it was easier to just stay put and enjoy the beauty of Vashon. Erin was extremely helpful and considerate in all our dealings and with last minute changes of itinerary etc. You couldn't ask for a more helpful hostess. First class!"

  • Girls Get-A-Way Weekend in late October

    "Five friends and I stayed here last weekend for a gals get-a-way weekend. The pictures do not do it justice! The home is lovely, very spacious, generously equipped with just about everything you need but food. And the view of the lagoon and early morning horizon over the sound was out of this world. The hot tub was great, the location perfect for solitude if you wish or lots of activity if you wish as well. Right down the road from Captain Whidbey Inn and very close to Eby State Park. Cannot say enough about this place. It also has a ramp for people with walkers or wheelchairs and the master bath has a walk in shower as well for people with disabilities or issues with their legs. The only minor issue we had is that there are several, and I mean several light switches and since they aren't marked, you have to play around a lot to find out what switch is for what. Overall, pretty small potatoes for a fabulously beautiful place! Thank you Betty for everything!"

    "This was our 3rd stay and each time just gets better and better. Went over to Port Townsend suggested by owner Fran and had a wonderful afternoon. Short little ferry ride, just park your car and walk on -all shopping and restaurants are within walking distance. This is a beautiful location, the views and sunsets are spectacular! Must not forget the wonderful hot tub after your day of adventures! We will definately be back. Thanks again Fran and Thom!"

  • A Fantastic Journey to the Pacific Northwest

    "Call me Ishmael. On the arrival of June or July of each year, at the beginning of those 100 days or so of Hades in my home port of Charleston, I long for the cool breezes, clear waters, and tasty victuals of the Pacific Northwest. This summer, my aged aunt and I sallied forth to same, having in our packs comfort wear and light windbreakers. On arrival, we found our berths to be quite spacious and comfortable; and consistent with the age of the ship, the quarters were immaculate and served our purposes perfectly. On that first daybreak, we spied a great, dormant volcano to the Southeast. The water was a tranquil crystalline azure. A few other sailing vessels were on the horizon, following the incoming tide along the coast of adjacent Great Whidbey Island. The water was bracing, and nary another swimmer was seen. One of the locals later explained that the water is considered intemperate by most, but since I have suffer from chronic Dunlop's Malady, as well as having Welsh blood in my veins, I found swimming in the sea most bracing and invigorating. We spent much time on deck playing card games for small wager; and after a week at sea we were tied at that portent of good fortune: 7 matches apiece. At Even Time, we followed the course of the setting sun across the hills of Whidbey Island. We also could spy in the distance the Great Olympic Range, befitting in majesty its name. Meals were prepared in a very spacious and ample galley. The ship was also equipped with a strange, black rectangular object that was perhaps some flotsam or jetsam from an unfortuanate earlier venture. This dark curiosity was not further investigated during our week long voyage. Alas, and all too soon, we arrived back in port and returned to Oppressive Carolina where the heat and ague and miasma continue unabated."
