Peaceful Island Retreat With Waterview
average rating of 4.5 based on 26 reviews

Pretty, worth the price, scenery beautiful, loved secluded area. Nice & quiet, deer roamed property.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was further from town than we thought it would be, but it wasn't a big deal. Would have liked a larger TV in the living room with more than three channels that only showed shows from the 1960s. Other than that we were very happy.

Small, clean, quiet

  • 4 of 5

House is small, quiet, and clean. It is a bit remote. It took about 20 minutes to drive to the ferry, but once the ferry schedule was figured out, it was a matter of planning the drive time. Surrounding area is beautiful with wild-life frequently in the yard. House is simple, no luxuries here. Salt, pepper, tea, and aluminum foil are the only commodities in the kitchen along with basic cooking tools. There are no DVD movies on the shelves, only VHS, so bring your own. Simple and quiet, relaxing.

Owner's Response: We are glad you found our vacation home quiet and relaxing. In general we leave the kitchen clean and empty so that each guest can fill the refrigerator etc with their own food and supplies The house is stocked with dishwasher detergent, dishwashing liquid, sponges, paper towels, toilet paper and laundry soap. There is also a toaster, microwave, blender, coffee maker, Propane grill and a full array of dishes, glassware and pots and pans. It is true that our location is approximately 20 minutes from the ferry dock. Most of our guests chose our home because it is a quiet location Yes we have some vintage VHS tapes. There is also a store called Islandale which 5 minutes away from the house where you can rent a variety of DVDs. The Internet at the house works for streaming videos as well.

Nice setting

  • 4 of 5

Had a good stay but the requirement to take out garbage/recycling when the dump is only open very limited hours was a hassle (especially since there is already a cleaning fee and we had to adhere to the ferry schedule).

Owner's Response: We are sorry that the infrastructure on the island is an inconvenience to our guests. Unfortunately this is how the island operates. Most guests and residents plan ahead and deposit as much trash as possible when they go to the village. That way upon leaving they only have to carry one small trash bag off the island. There is a dumpster conveniently located at the Anacortes ferry dock Thank you for your feedback and we are happy you enjoyed your stay

Cozy Home

  • 4 of 5

Overall we loved our stay at Penny's home. It was, as titled, a peaceful island retreat. The home was cozy, the kitchen was well stocked, and the view from deck was wonderful. The small beds in the small room were a little noisy but comfortable enough. The only real drawback for us was that we were unaware that we had to haul our own garbage with us when we left (or forfeit half the deposit, $100). Upon checkout day I came across this info while researching the checkout policy. This would not have been a problem except that the dump is only open 3 days a week, and not on the day we were checking out (Sat.). We ended up having to dig out our garbage (in flimsy plastic bags provided) which consisted of remains of 8 meals, crab shells, etc., and take it back to the mainland in our already cramped car. Very smelly. I would rather be charged a bit more up front (not $100) to not have to deal with the garbage. Otherwise, I would definitely stay here again but bring better garbage bags.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback. I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay in our vacation home. Regarding the garbage, it is stated in our packet that is sent by email prior to your visit that guests are responsible for their trash. If you look again, you can find references to this issue both in the policy and checkout attachment. It is also stated in the policy that if there is any garbage left, the guest will be responsible for $15 per bag, not 50% of the security deposit, as you stated. Sorry for the inconvenience regarding the times and days for the dump. We wish it could be otherwise, but this is the nature of the infrastructure of a small island

Car: recommended

Beautiful peaceful island life. Enjoy clamming, kayaking, hiking and biking. Casual dining in town or barbeque at the house while watching the island's exquisite sunsets. This is your opportunity to relax and be in nature
