From a distance everything looks ok, but...
Up close, this house is in serious need of some major repairs. Where to start? Broken doors to bedrooms and the master bath and a broken lock on the back sliding door. Privacy isn’t the only issue here, obviously. THheres big things like that and then there’s lots of little things such as no working batteries in any of the half-dozen remote controls. You say you’re into playing Billiards? That’s a joke, this “table” wouldn’t work as a buffet never mind the “games” advertised.
Then there’s the fact it’s advertised as pet friendly. Another falsehood. I didnt know it at the time but the entire area isn’t really pet friendly the way I think of the term.
You get a lot of house and the dock is great if you bring your own boat but beware navigating low tides out of the marina, the coffer dam won’t allow passage of boats with any more than 2’ of draft. Of course we weren’t informed of this fact until the day before our arrival.
Overall, I’d avoid renting this house if I were you
It was great!
It was perfect for what we were looking for!! Great place to bring your boat, dog friendly and great crabbing! Gayle was an excellent host! We will definitely be back!
Great spot for a boating adventure
Great spot at the north end of the island with short distances to LaConner and Langley. And the house was very well stocked with all those little things that you wouldn't think to bring with you. On the boating front, Gayle was extremely helpful with advice on how to navigate local conditions and her dock was a very handy and safe spot to park overnight. We look forward to coming back next year. Local tides at the Cove can be a challenge to planning but there again, Gayle was a tremendous help. Thanks Gayle!
Beautiful home in a beautiful setting but very poorly main
Many functional issues - pocket doors didn't work, odor in one area of house, convection oven not operable, heating system not functioning (although many space heaters ), etc. House seemed to be used as storage throughout all drawers and also outside - new barbecue but old one still on deck.
Z Resort lives up to expectations!
I rented this house so it would be our home base while we raced WIRW in July, 2011. Although we were 10 miles from Oak Harbor, we enjoyed getting away from the big crowd and building an evening bonfire while we debriefed our daily racing experiences. Gayle was so friendly and hospitable from the initial contact and willing to answer any questions for us as this was our first experience on Whidbey Island. The property was clean and well maintained with wireless internet readily available. We truly enjoyed our stay and would be happy to rent again when we venture this far north again.
Great crabbing, clamming, fishing and walks on the Beach
