Nice view but with drawbacks

  • 3 of 5

The view from the property is beautiful and the studio is well equipped, but the bed was incredibly uncomfortable. We left a week ago and are still in pain from the mattress.

We were really cold as well because the studio does not have its own heating. Thankfully Karen brought us a space heater that worked well.

The major drawback from this trip was Karen's unwillingness to communicate with us. The power in the basement went out on us late one night and we couldn't figure it out... we finally decided to call her and she answered, but when we tried to call back because we were still sitting there in the dark, she had her phone turned off. I tried to call her prior to the trip to ask about having a package mailed and she would not answer or return my calls. I called after we left with a question and left a message and she would not return the call either.

All in all the trip was not awful but there were definitely problems. I hope in the future Karen is willing to cater to her guests a little better because that lack of communication really put a damper on our honeymoon.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Yes, everyone loves the scenery! In response to your comments we have added a memory foam mattress topper. We also have an additional new heater in the bathroom. As to your comments on communication, I am either at my home (seconds away), or at my store (phone number displayed in unit), or by email through the VRBO site. Also, as you know, any "extras" (blender,crab cooking utensils) are quickly made available. Thanks for staying with us!

Outstanding vacation location

  • 5 of 5

We loved sharing Karen's home in her lower level studio apartment. The view was breathtaking, and the location so serene and peaceful. Whidbey Island is a great vacation location for anyone looking for peace and quiet and small town America. Karen's studio is outstanding. We spent 2 wonderful but too short weeks and did not want to leave. Thanks, Karen for a great stay. We hope to return in the spring.

great studio

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 4 nights and had a lovely time. The studio is beautifully decorated, the kitchen has all that you might need and it was clean and quiet. My only issues were that the ad stated that there was a cot available which there wasn't - we made do but if we'd known there wasn't one available we would have brought one along or even stayed elsewhere. Our only other very small issue was a lack of basics - things like soap in particular! We had a lovely stay and I do recommend this property.
