House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Max = 8)
Why Jenn chose Camano Island
We've never seen such beautiful views, from such an incredible home, with so many recreational amenities so close to the city of Seattle. It's so close to where we live, yet seems like a world away.
What makes this House unique
The feeling you get looking out with such amazing views while being a part of nature makes provides for the perfect relaxing getaway.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We had a wonderful time, even though it rained one day. Lots of room for family members to have quiet time when they needed it. The view is unbelievable!
I would have given this a five if it hadn't been for the lack of laundry facilities and a frustrating microwave.
New microwave arrives this week! Who wants to do laundry on vacation?! With septic system limitations, no laundry ensures plenty of capacity for showers, flushing, etc.
Everything we needed
Clean, comfortable home. Accommodating host and incredible views!
Perfect for our short weekend.
Property is well kept with a nice kitchen and living area. Bedrooms are comfy and spacious. The view is spectacular and we only wish we’d had more time to spend there and enjoy the home, the water and the serenity.
Very comfortable. Amazing views! Loved the hot tub!
This is a wonderful place to get away for a while. Our group loved it!
We loved our stay at the Eagle’s Nest. The property w
Has fantastic views and fully equipped. Access to the beach is a bit tough to get to, but we enjoyed our stay.
Not at all what we were expecting. First of all the house is advertised as “Sleeps 8”, yet we were charged $250 extra for having 8. The explanation I received was, “The property allows up to 8 people, but this is the only way to give smaller groups a price break.” Huh?!! The house seems tired - definitely not spotless as described. The fitted sheets had some long, dark hairs when we pulled the sheets back - I was totally grossed out by that so I ended up sleeping at my sister’s house. We ended up lint rolling the sheets and sprayed them with Lysol. The beds are advertised as queen sized for three of the bedrooms, which the bed in the loft was a double. All pillows were flat as pancakes, so we bought some pillows for our use. Some of the drawers and cupboards in the kitchen were a disaster - it looked like someone had rifled thru them and just dumped junk in them. The refrigerator had a broken door shelf which fell off when we opened the door to add some items - it had been taped on, but obviously that didn’t work. When I let Jenn know so we would not get blamed, her response was that it was too expensive to buy a new fridge. I would think they could order a shelf. The first item on the checkout sheet mentions starting a load of sheets in the washer, yet no washer and dryer were available. I have never stayed at a VRBO that did not have a washer and dryer. On a bright note, the outside views were beautiful!
If you are a traveler who enjoys the experience of staying in someone else's home, please read all of our 5 star reviews and then come enjoy the Eagles Nest. This home has been with the family for many decades. Yes, over that time we have put together a pretty comprehensive junk drawer! We don't expect you to want or need anything in there, but feel free to look if you'd like. If you prefer daily housekeeping and glasses that come wrapped in plastic, then we don't mind saying that is not what we are offering.
Every single pillow was brand new the day this group checked in. We've found that most travelers who have specific pillow preferences, tend to bring their own. My response about the fridge was misquoted - it's not the shelf that's broken. A previous guest accidentally pulled the shelf out of the door and now it can't be reattached. Since it's a pretty new fridge that works great - we do just fine without using that shelf.
Our rental rates are based on the size of the group. Why should 4 people have to pay the same as 8? This is all clearly quoted before anyone makes a payment. This house is so close to the water, that we need to be very careful with the septic system. We have opted to eliminate the washer and dryer so that we can still allow 8 people and ensure everyone gets plenty of showers and flushes. No one wants to do laundry on vacation anyway!
Voted top area in Washington State for bird watching with a large diversity of species. Eagles soar by all day long!
