There are 3 bedrooms upstairs - the master has a king bed, a private balcony and a large bathroom with separate shower and a jetted tub. The master bed and bath, including the bath tub, enjoy the same beautiful westerly view as the main floor. The second bedroom has a queen bed and the third has 2 twin beds. There is a shared bathroom with a shower.

The lower level of the house is a walk out basement that is a rec room and can be used as additional sleeping space. We have 2 twin beds in the lower level and a bathroom with a shower. The rec room has a wood fireplace insert, a ping pong table, sitting area, sit up bar and a television. We do provide some firewood for your use.

Overlooks Useless Bay, and Sunlight Beach area! Very close to all of the fun and convenient things on the south end of the island. Dogs welcome here with prior approval. Close proximity to Seattle, Port Townsend, Anacortes, and the San Juan Islands should you want to take a day trip somewhere. Deception Pass, the most visited State park in all of Washington, is at the north end of the island, just over a 1 hour drive. Great shopping, parks, hikes, and local attractions, may keep you right here on the south end; even if you come for a week or two!

Whidbey House

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great stay here. Plenty of room to gather, or spread out. Comfortable furniture and great views. Loved the fireplace in the living room. The fan on the wood stove downstairs didn't work right, so made it cold down there.

Plenty of books and games to keep us occupied for a winter weekend. We would love to come back to enjoy this place in the summer.

Nice view, spacious, great location.

  • 4 of 5

Great place for a family to stay. Nice view of the bay, the birds, the kite boarders. Great for walking to the beach. Still some finish work being done on the house, but not a problem for vacationers.

Lovely View and Comfortable Home

  • 4 of 5

There were four of us staying over a long weekend. The house is spacious and has a lot of seating in the big room. Nice big table for puzzles and dining (at the same time). Kitchen is nicely equipped. The house feels a bit dated and worn. No easy access to the beach, although nice view. The upstairs main room could use a curtain on the window.

Great holiday in Sun Vista Circle

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Ireland with two small children had a great time in this house. The house is lovely and bright with beautiful views of the bay. We managed to block the waste disposal (Entirely our fault) and this was fixed within a few hours of reporting it. Very good.

Perfect for families

  • 4 of 5

We had a party of 6 staying at the home, and enjoyed the separate spaces available for relaxation. It took a little bit to figure out the heat, but after the first couple of days, it was barely needed. Paul was very responsive when we found what we thought was a leak, and even took the time to turn up the hot water for us. Other than there being no place to store things in the shared bathroom upstairs, the house was a joy to stay in. My biggest regret is that I didn't realize you needed to take the ferry to travel between the island and Seattle; that was a big drawback for us, as we had planned a lot of activities in the Seattle area.

One other note, we could not find access to the beach; you can see it from the balcony, though, and the view is beautiful.

Fantastic house, responsive owners

  • 5 of 5

My writing group had a weekend retreat at this lovely house. We were hoping for a quiet, spacious place that would allow us to focus on our writing. This house was perfect.

Top things we loved: beautiful views of the bay from most rooms in the house. A surprisingly well-stocked kitchen with paper towels, Saran wrap, plenty of pots and pans, etc. Spacious living and dining room with a table that was just right for our group writing sessions. There were four of us, and we each had our own bedroom - what a luxury. (One of us slept in the finished downstairs area, and she said it was perfectly comfortable.)

We had one minor issue with a smoke alarm battery, and the owner was incredibly responsive and helpful, getting back to us right away and walking us through where to find new batteries and put them in, even though we called after hours. A+ for friendly owners!

We will definitely be back! Thank you.
