"I could copy/paste my last year review
We love to try new homes every year but we returned to this house for many reasons. We liked that we had enough room to accommodate everybody, we loved the great view; we loved the kitchen (lots of pots and pans and dishes in good condition, working appliances, spices galore and lots of cleaning supplies); we loved having the boats; we loved the lower deck with the outdoor shower, sink to clean all your fishing loot, and nice chairs were you could just kick back and relax (the little room out there is also a plus). Also the house has easy level parking and the two showers and toilets (two bathrooms) were really appreciated. There is also the hot tub, the crab pots and cages, the available supply of paper towels and bathroom tissue. At many homes we had to get out and buy more paper supplies and sometimes the nearest store was far away (unlike the awesome Paylessfood in Freeland). This is a comfortable house with a great view and close from everything. For us this house fit the standards. Twice.
Thank you Kathy and Bruce for two great summer stays!"

Had a great weekend with my sons and daughter-in-law
"I took two of my adult sons and my daughter-in-law for a birthday trip. We love Whidbey Island and have stayed at other places previously, and this was definitely a great place for us. The water views were spectacular, especially in the morning. We are all active, so the short hike down to the beach (this property is on a high bank) was pleasant and allowed us to get some exercise. The street is quiet, which is a nice change from the city noise we usually deal with. Watching a seal play in the water was a treat.
The house had everything we needed, and we had some top flight meals as a result without having to hunt up a restaurant. The deck looking over the water is a great place for breakfast and barbecues. My daughter-in-law kept saying how much she liked Eagle's Perch and posting photos to Facebook, so I'm sure it was a hit."

"Arrived to deer foraging in the front yard, and saw other wildlife that same evening. The cottage itself is a very relaxing place to be; nice design, pleasing atmosphere with nothing lacking that we would have wished for, except for a few more window screens during our first night. Nevertheless, the island was still about 10 degrees cooler than the heat-wave on the mainland, and our remaining days were flat-out refreshing in terms of the temperature. WiFi let my wife participate in her weekly coursework online, and the woods made for some nice wandering. Traffic noise didn't disturb our evenings or our sleeping, but did detract while relaxing on the wonderful front porch in the morning (gazing at the serene setting and wanting to just hear the birds and the breeze, not the cars). Grocery store proximity much appreciated! We were pleased by the owner's response in caring for a few minor concerns, and appreciate their thoughtfulness with regard to dogs. Nice to find that a pet bed was provided, as well as bowls for food, water, and some treats and even pickup bags, if I'm remembering correctly. Do read the cottage policy, however: dogs are to be kept off the furniture.
Travel tips: We had an excellent and inexpensive experience leaving our dog at Dogwood Pet Resort in Oak Harbor enroute to whale-watching with Island Adventures out of Anacortes. A great outing with Island Adventures too. Also, South Whidbey State Park is just a few miles from the cottage and is beautiful - the 15 minute hike to the beach is well-worth it."

"Wonderful, beautiful oasis. The pictures depicted it perfectly. So close to everything, and yet when at the cottage it was as if no one was around. Many Hiking trails near by, and the Double Bluff beach was enjoyed by the dogs. Also recommend the Saratoga-Putney Hiking trails, a labyrinth of trails. It was very nice, what with the tree coverage for shade. We were there in midst of heat wave so the shade was great. Fabulous stay overall :)"
