Wonderful Whidbey Home

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our family trip. We were on the island for a wedding and shared the home with extended family, We made great use of the deck and the views were spectacular! The beds were comfortable and loved that all the adults had a King sized bed!. Having a washer and dryer was a nice amenity. There was plenty of extra bedding as well as towels. We also enjoyed the hot tub!

The location was perfect as the wedding was in Freeland and we had relatives also staying in Langley.

And just a short drive to the ferry!

We drove up to Anacotes for a day and did a whale watching tour with Mystic Sea charters! LOVED IT! We saw over 50 whales! We also enjoyed Deception pass and Ebey Bay and the lighthouse, Our trip to Whidbey Island was very enjoyable!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful home! We hope to make a trip back to the island someday soon!

Great Gathering Place

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of five couples who have been friends for over fifty years. This was the perfect venure to gather, enjoy each other, and this marvelous location. The house was perfect with room for all of us to sleep comfortably in those fantastic beds! We spent many hours gathered around the huge dining table, eating, drinking and rehashing the good old days. The view was spectacular. The lovely deck near the water would make a lovely spot for a wedding. While the weather was cool, we did catch a few quick spots of sun on the water. I can only imagine how wonderful it would be to sit on that large open deck on a warm, summer's day.

Thank you!!

Supplemental Review to Johnny Canuck

  • 5 of 5


-lots of comfy king sized beds and big closets

-awesome view

-great kitchen island with eating bar

-stone beach for kids to play on at low tide

-covered, outdoor hottub

-big deck which would be amazing in the summer

-big yard with swing & covered play area

-downstairs living/game room was perfect for the kids

-nice walk to town for groceries

-crockpot available although not listed in appliances

-lots of utensils, pots/pans, large bowls available for cooking/baking

-wood burning fire places

-melodic laundry beside kitchen

-did I mention the awesome view?

Cons or suggestions:

-too little fridge & too much freezer for a 4-family vacation (maybe add a 2nd fridge in the laundry room or turn the temperature down on the freezer size & use as a fridge?)

-water took FOREVER to warm up at taps

-dishwasher very slow and not the greatest for cleaning

-all the dishes matched so, with 14 people, it was impossible to determine who's drink/plate/bowl was whose so we ended up washing a lot more than we needed to. Maybe throw in some odd-ball dishes.

-no recycling/composting/garburator so EVERYTHING had to go in the waste.

-couldn't figure out trash compactor

-could use some storage containers for left-overs

-had to provide own tissues, toilet-paper, paper-towels & napkins

-rooms extrememly dark at night > could use some night lights for those late-night bathroom trips and, OH!, the hip bruises from the huge bed-posts at night too!

With 8 adults & 6 kids, we fit tightly, but had a great time! We'd definitely come back!

Great for Families

  • 5 of 5

We booked over Christmas and New Year's; this home is one of the best ones we've stayed at. We're 4 families with children and have been vacationing together for 12 years. Every year, we find a new cabin/cottage to stay at and spend holidays together. This home is well maintained, has all the amenities you could need (fireplace, hot tub, BBQ, games room for the kids) and a great view and comfortable decor that defines what a cosy vacation home should be. If you need a 6 bedroom home, this is it. They even had a regular maintenance crew come by periodically to take the garbage out and check if everything is ok.

The only things that could be improved are a few more kitchen items like extra garbage bags, dishwashing soap and toilet paper so we wouldn't have to buy them. But these are minor as there's a great Payless foods about 2 miles away that has everything we needed.

We would definitely stay here again.
