This home has everything you would ever want in a vacation rental. It is beautifully furnished with the most outstanding views from all sides of the house. When the tide is in, you feel like you are on a cruise ship and the sound of the waves at night is so relaxing. We watched the sunset go down while relaxing in the hot tub.

The home is big enough with the downstairs media room that you never feel crowded. There is something for everyone. We cant wait to go back.

A lovely home for a getaway

  • 4 of 5

This home does not disappoint. It is beautifully appointed and the kitchen has all the cooking amenities you would need, plus spices and tea! The bedrooms are comfortable and the master is pretty amazing.

Because the house is so exposed to ocean spray, the windows got very misty and foggy on the outside. The owners have vinegar and water solution under the sink and a couple of sprays and wiping on the outside, they were good as new. The view is SO amazing, it is worth the 5 minutes. Even if the cleaning service did this before each guest, it would go right back due to the elements.

You feel like you are out in the country, yet major markets like Safeway or Walmart are only 10 minutes away.

Thanks for the great stay!

We had a wonderful time at the Beach House. We are a family of seven. We enjoyed the comfy beds, walks on the beach, the hot tub, and an amazing sunset our first night. We talked with the friendly neighbors on both sides of the house. Everything was exactly as advertised and the house had a very well stocked kitchen and plenty of towels. We used the house as a base for a couple days in the North Cascades, and we also spent time at the State Parks on Whidbey Island. It was nice to have the isolation of the beach and the conveniences of Oak Harbor. Our favorite brunch was at the Island Cafe in Oak Harbor, and our favorite dinner was at The Front Street Grill in Coupeville. We would definitely come back again!

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Carolyn's stunning home for a moms-weekend-away. Our group of exhausted moms loved the spacious, well decorated, clean and beautiful house. Everything one can possibly need was there. We enjoyed the long walks on the beach, found some agates and sea glass, soaked in the hot tub and just rested on the comfortable beds. Thank you for opening up your home to visitors - it was a much needed retreat for us!

Thanksgiving on Whidbey Island

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at this beautiful beach house. I highly recommend it. We were three generations of my family, six adults and one teenager, and it was perfect for us. The kitchen is very well supplied for cooking a big Thanksgiving meal. We had an awesome November wind storm when we arrived - the rest of our stay was calm and cold. So cozy to curl up on the couch in front of the fire while watching the ocean, which was at high tide during the day throughout our stay. The ocean is so close, it felt like we were on a boat. The house is clean, beautifully "beach" decorated, and well appointed to sleep seven. With the lake in front of the house and the ocean at the back, we had sunrises and sunsets over the water every day. There is plenty to do on Whidbey - hikes, beaches, restaurants, and shops. And this location is perfect for driving over Deception Pass rather than worrying about a ferry line. Winter on Whidbey is breath-taking. I'd like to come back and stay during the summer as well.

Coming Back!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property with my husband during winter of last year. The house was/is outstanding and spectacular!.... and the views were too!!. Loved the design of the home. I felt right at home. We have rented VRBO's in 8 different states and have had over 2 dozen different property.

Cindy's place is by far the best!!!

Thank you
