About the property

3 Bedrooms plus rec room, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8 with kids

After a wonderful remodel, our 3 bedroom/3 bath home is once again a vacation rental. We can accommodate up to 6 adults or if you have some children in your party we have room for 8.

The main floor has a spacious open floor plan with a full wall of windows facing west over Sunlight Beach. This view has some of everything - amazing sunsets, the Olympic Mountains, vast acreage of wetlands abundant with wildlife, the shipping lanes and all of Useless Bay. There is a propane fireplace in the living area, television with Comcast and free Netflix movies. The deck is off of the main living area and has outdoor dining table and a gas grill.

The kitchen is equipped with all that you need for cooking - lots of serving dishes, glassware, pots & pans, baking pans, mixer, blender, crock pot, coffee grinder, electric tea kettle, full set of spices, cooking oil, coffee... and more.

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.

Public beach access on Sunlight Beach is about a 15 minute walk from the house. We do have 2 adult/teenager bicycles available. Please bring your own bike helmets.

Notes:
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!

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.

Light filled and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this spacious, light and comfortable home. Beds were good, the space was clean and kitchen well appointed. The deck looks out over a lovely view and it's an easy walk down to the beach along Useless Bay. We appreciated having the ping pong table and the comfy spaces to gather. Communication with Patti was great. We would love to come back again and stay here!

nice

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property. Was all that it claimed to be.

The manager needs to be sure the housekeeping checks to see that all of the light bulbs are working.

If the property will accommodate/accept 8 there should be 8 chairs for the dinning table.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our Sun Vista Getaway. We have talked to housekeeping about the light bulbs so that doesn't happen again. Next time, please do give us a call as we are close by and could take care of that right away for you. We recently had a chair break and since you had a reservation for just 7 guests we thought you would be ok with the 7 dining chairs instead of 8 for your visit. Had we known you had an extra guest we would have made sure to have another chair available for you. Our apologies for that. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay in spite of these inconveniences. We do hope you will come again!

Whidby island

  • 5 of 5

We had a family get away with our kids and extended family for three night, and we were so pleased. The house was very nice, clean, comfortable and had an amazing view. One of the most relaxing trips we have had. The home was pet friendly which we needed, even stocked with doggie treats, bowls and towels. Also our kids found loads of crafts downstairs that kept them busy for hours. Would absolutely go back in a heartbeat.

Lovely house in a very peaceful, beautiful area.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice with a homey feel. It was a family reunion for us and the house and property added ronthe pmeasure. The downstairs rec room provided entertainment away from the family room so conversation remained comfortable for all. Very happy with our choice and we expect to stay here again next time we come to the Seattle area.
