"We rented this house recently for our Bunco group and had a wonderful experience. The house is perfect for a group with couples since there are 4 queen beds and 1 king bed. The indoor space worked well for a large group and group meals. The weekend we were there, the weather was beautiful so we enjoyed walks in the area, beach time and and s'mores by the fire. It is such a convenient location for a weekend getaway with opportunities for outings in the area. The owners provided great customer service and we would definitely rent this house again."

"My husband and I stayed 3 nights in the boathouse, which is an efficiency studio in the lower level of this rental. It was charming, quiet, and very comfortable. We didn't have an opportunity to use all the amenities, but the unit is extremely well-equipped with cooking implements, fridge, hot plate, microwave, and quite cozy with bathrobes, beach towels, and more. While there isn't a view from the apartment, there are delightful seating areas outdoors with stunning views. There is also a view from the deck off the main house, great for a family to rent the whole thing. We will definitely stay here again. Note, while I raised my eyebrows at Joy's homemade flax muffins, they are as delicious as she claims!"

"My family and I (including my adult daughter, grandson, and two teenagers) spend a week around the 4th of July (1st to 7th) here, and it was wonderful. Even with the record heat wave in WA, we stayed relatively cool. There are plenty of windows and doors to open and let a cross breeze through. The beds are very comfortable, the house is very clean and well-kept, and the view is spectacular. And the 4th of July fireworks, which we watched from the back deck, were spectacular! There are plenty of games and puzzles for days you may not leave the house due to rain, some books and movies, cable and wifi with a strong signal, although we really didn't plug in very often - only to make reservations for activities in Seattle.
You are well within driving distance for lots of things - Seattle sight seeing, Whale Watching (I recommend Island Adventures in Anacortes), hiking, the Boeing tour in Everett - even Olympic National Park would make a nice day trip from here. And you're only 80 miles from Vancouver if you wanted to spend a day there.
Coming from the Atlantic Coast, the beaches were an interesting change - all rocks and shells. Great for beach combing. Of course, the water is too cold to even attempt swimming.
I recommend checking the pantry before grocery shopping. We accidentally doubled up on coffee and tea, not knowing there was already some in the house, lol. I also recommend taking the drive into Stanwood and shopping at Haggen rather than IGA on the island, although IGA has all the essentials in a pinch. They're just a smaller store and a bit more expensive.
All in all, it was a wonderful stay and if we come back to the area again, I will definitely be checking to see if it's available. Dawn was very sweet and super helpful."

"We rented this home for a family vacation (8 adults, 2 children and 1 newborn) and it accommodated us all so well. The views were spectacular.... 2 submarines, a small pod of whales, eagles, deer in the backyard... The kitchen has almost everything you can think of to accommodate a large family. The community pool was fabulous! Lots and lots of activities for the kids within a 20 to 30 minute drive (Fort Flagler, Fort Warden, Port Townsend, Port Townsend Glass Beach, etc.). The backyard and property is landscaped beautifully and invites lots of wildlife (birds, hummingbirds, squirrels, chipmunks, etc.). Although not turned on when we arrived, the AC kept the house cool despite the exceptionally warm summer heat. Plenty of hot water for showers. We spent much of our time in the gorgeous sun room and on the back patio. Great location for a family get away. I am sure the TV Works, but we did not turn it on once--- sign of a fantastic family vacay!"
