Beautiful setting, spacious & immaculate!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very kind and allowed us to stay a second night while we were on the island visiting family. The beds were very comfortable it had everything we needed and the sunsets were beautiful. I couldn’t have dreamed up a more comfortable stay.

Great beach front home!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with all the amenities needed for a great time. The view is epic and the home was very clean and comfortable. We have not stayed at a more equipped house in the many years we have been renting vacation properties for long family weekends. We highly recommend this home !!

Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with the location, the view of the water, and the ease of use of the house! The hot tub was not as clean as we expected, but the equipment to clean it was easy to find! Timing and accessibility were easy, and we very much enjoyed our stay! One note about the house being kid-friendly (it was!), we had an 18 month old in our party, and quickly discovered how many small lovely decorative rocks and shells were at his level :-). We were able to move things easily and had no problem after that. It was a wonderful weekend, with one of the highlights being waves splashing high enough to hit the living room window. Surprised and thrilled all of us! Thank you for sharing your beautiful house, it was a great winter get-away!

Beautiful property, right on the Straight of Juan De Fuca

  • 5 of 5

This is a really special spot, situated in a small community of homes, with the Straight of Juan de Fuca on one side, and a beautiful lake/wetland on the other.

The home has an enormous deck with plenty of seating to enjoy the 180 degree views.

Inside, there's a very comfortable sectional perfectly positioned to take in the view if the weather isn't cooperating.

The home itself is very clean, nicely decorated, and well set up for two couples or a small family

The front, fenced yard is gorgeous, and I'd love to see it in its prime in the summer months.

Carolyn is very easy to work with, responsive and pleasant.

We had a lovely stay over a stormy weekend, which made for some exciting views out onto the churning sea. It was a quintessentially Northwest-y way to spend a long weekend, watching the storms go by.

Perfect get away!

  • 5 of 5

Loved every minute of it. The sound and open water on one side, with a marsh and the feel of Scottland on the other side. The host was great, the home was more than welcoming, and the beds could not have been more comfortable.

I would recommend to anyone. Or maybe I wouldn't so more weekends are available for me to go back.

Idyllic Log Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed a 4 day stay at this wonderful Oak Harbor home. The location was stunning. It rained on our first day but the next day we did get to experience one of those amazing sunsets. Beautiful!

The home was warm and clean, the beds comfortable and, for foodies like us, the kitchen was well-equipped. Super impressed!

We enjoyed a couple of hikes in the nearby Joseph Whidbey State Park.

All in all we had a great time and would definitely plan to come again.

Thank you!
