it was wonderful -

  • 4 of 5

Another hand towel in the bathroom would have been beneficial and the barbecue was not clean and the propane was left on.

FYI one of the neighbors was helping themselves to your garbage container.

We are looking forward to a return visit next year!

The photos do not do this place justice. The cabin has a great view of the bay, large grassy yard, and gorgeous outdoor furniture. We were very pleased with the property. Thank you!!

Fantastic retreat- everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in this charming home. The view brings instant tranquility. Everything that you could need is provided (towels, basic condiments, wine glasses, firewood, etc) so you can relax and immediately get in vacation-time. The bonfire, kayaks, and water access (our dog was in heaven) were highlights.

The Westcott Oyster Farm is next door- a great place for a delicious local snack and a beer. What a treat! We look forward to our next stay!

We enjoyed this beautiful home and property as a little get-away before our middle son departs for college. The property is beautifully maintained and has kayaks, bikes, clamming equipment and a spacious lawn with a beautiful view of the bay. It is very peaceful and private. There were butterflies everywhere! The home was very clean and had comfortable beds, an exceptional washer and dryer and a lovely propane fireplace for the cool evenings. The kitchen was lacking a few items like mixing bowls, and baking /casserole pans but we got by. We brought paper towels, napkins, baggies and tin foil (it is not provided). It was wonderful having our furry family members with us. I'm grateful that they allow pets. Our dogs had an even better time than us. Our deposit was quickly refunded.

Amazing Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just spent four nights and five days at this amazing home. My husband and I constantly commented on how lucky we were to find such a gem! It has a Quiet, serene location with tons of activities close by. The house is clean and well furnished with comfortable beds and all of the amenities you need. We relished daily dinners outside at the rustic table overlooking the bay. (Steamed clams that we harvested from the beach was such a cool experience and delicious meal!) That view was a highlight of our trip! The landscaping and yard was gorgeous and our kids (age 3 & 4) loved playing barefoot in the yard and down by the water. We caught baby crabs by hand, explored the shore, dug for clams during low tide (make sure you get a fish & wildlife permit first and research your daily limit), and hiked from the house to English Camp. Roche Harbor grocery market (and playground) is close by and we took an AMAZING Whale watching private charter by Maya so see Orcas. Trip of a lifetime! We can not wait to come back! One tip if you are considering coming with toddlers, they have a pack n play and high chair and it is the perfect spot for kids. Their is a small (approx 20 foot) drop from the edge of the property to the beach so if you have a child that wanders, just keep an eye out. We just set boundaries with our keids to keep them from the edge and also did not allow them down to the water without an adult. Even with that one little thing, I would recommend this home for families! The cabin was like a playhouse for our kids and they loved when we "camped" in it. :) Smores by the fire also was a treat! Thanks Deb for opening up your gorgeous home! It was such better than we imagined!

Incredible house in even more incredible location

  • 5 of 5

This house is incredible! We stayed here with extended family for a long weekend and did not want to leave. The house is super cosy with incredible views and the grounds are immaculate and extend straight in to the water. Is quiet and peaceful and but not too remote and close to everything you need. Will be coming back!
