Point Roberts early March visit!
We were met there at our leisure the day we arrived, very accommodating to our schedule.
House was lovely, older touch with classy furniture throughout but bedding and bathrooms were very up to date. The whole house had a peaceful easy feeling to it. Very, very quiet location, kids played on beach every day, tried to even swim several times making it only to the belly button... Very cold water but we knew that going in! House was very clean and spacious, total relaxing getaway. Super markets in Point Roberts generally lack substance, would suggest shopping in Canada then bringing to house. Looking forward to going back in the summertime!!
Whale Watching Guest
What a wonderful time, clean home, quiet area, all the nicest details, everything thought of. The whales came by at night as we sat by the water, they were so close we could see and hear them as they passed by in the dark. Again during the day a pod of 12 came by. Adults and babies, jumping out of the water - they put on quite a show. We will definitly return. Incredible!!
Didn't Want To Leave!
We stayed at this property the last week of May and found it to be very comfortable, clean and well appointed. Everything one could possibly need was provided and easy to find. The fireplaces were welcome on cooler evenings. The area is wonderfully quiet and has lots of dog walking options. Ocean watching from the deck was exceptional - even better using our binoculars. Normally we don’t return to any vacation rentals but we will definitely return to this property.
Loved my stay!
Last week I got to spend 4 days in this beautiful place with a number of girlfriends, prior to the wedding of one of them. I just loved the place, the location and the fact that it is not an average holiday home, but a house where you can feel at home. There were plenty of blankets, sheets and especially towels available. The fully equipped kitchen added to our pleasure for we had a number of guests over for dinner. Sitting on the deck in the early morning sun with a cup of tea watching the Orca come by was the most beautiful experience!! Would love to come back one day ...
My husband, children and grandchildren rented this property for 6 days. We were absolutely delighted with the amenities, everything that was offered on the website was actually provided. The property was clean and our agent was very congenial. On our fourth day, we were thrilled to be treated to a display of Orca's for over 1/2 hour. We walked a lot along the beach, gathered shells, rocks and also strolled the quiet roads and located a delightful shop by the name of "Brewsters" that has fresh seafood, home baked goodies, bread, produce and organic products, as well as being a cafe. (Be sure to try the three cheese bread.) It is a right turn just at the intersection where the grocery store is, straight down the road. Our place was difficult to leave and we can't wait to return to Point Roberts.
We were a bit disappointed in our one week experience. There was a lack of blankets, no shower in the main bathroom and our booking was messed up overlapping with the next guests, so we were required to cut our stay short a day. The place has a nice location, but you have to go elsewhere to swim. The house is decorated in "old lady" style with delicate antiques, pictures of horses and flowers. We will not return to this house, but we will return to the Point.
We are so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay, but we would like to take this opportunity to reply to each one of your concerns.
• The lack of blankets could have easily been remedied, each of the beds have comforters' and if you had let us know, additional blankets would have been provided. I will be adding more blankets for future guests.
• There is not a shower in the main bathroom but there is a beautiful Jacuzzi tub fully equipped with a hand held shower head.
• The overlapping booking - The contract clearly stated the arrival and departure dates and times. I do think that communication was the issue here, the contract was modified by hand, by you and faxed over (faxes are not always clear). In this situation the contract should have been corrected and approved by us prior to signing the contract. This problem could have easily been avoided…
• Swimming - the water here in the Northwest is COLD, average water temperature is 55oF. Although many people do swim, water ski and participate in water sports right on our beach, we understand that it is too cold for many people. Point Roberts does have public beaches only a couple minutes away, where the water is much shallower and the water temperature does get significantly warmer.
• I do realize that not everyone has the same taste in decor but the pictures are posted on the website and are true to what the house looks like. The owner of the home loves antiques and has decorated the house accordingly. In our opinion the house is elegant and tastefully done.
Once again we are very sorry you did not enjoy your stay. We will make every effort to make sure that issues you identified are sorted out to the best of our ability. We believe that we this is certainly one of, if not the best properties and locations in Point Roberts and we have and will continue to offer the best VRBO experience possible. And most important of all the whales put on a great show today!
The house is beautifully furnished and well appointed if you like to cook!
Beautiful and picturesque, quaint and quiet, Point Roberts is the perfect get-away. If you crave privacy and anonymity, this is the place to bring your family.
Whale and bird watching, golfing, boating, hiking, forest walking, are just outside your door, while shopping, spas, and fine restaurants are only a short drive away. Relax with magnificent views morning, noon, evening and night. Close to ferries, the airport, and downtown Vancouver.
Beach fires, barbecues, great place to storm watch in the Winter months!
