  • Cozy winter retreat for a large group

    "This place was perfect for 10 writers on a weekend retreat. The owners are very responsive. There were plenty of comfortable beds and although one main bathroom would seem not enough, there was plenty of hot water and fresh towels, as well as a half bath upstairs. We did fine. The house includes a stocked kitchen and convenient appliances. The iron work on the railings and staircase are part of what makes this home unique. The wood burning stove kept us warm throughout the house. There were also lovely spots for privacy; a window nook and an area overlooking the zen garden, and an indoor hammock! The large table served well for dinner and for a workspace. We enjoyed our time at this well cared for space."

  • Cozy, well-appointed retreat in the woods

    "My husband and I stayed at Heron's Roost for 5 days celebrating our anniversary. The place was as described - the cabin is cozy, well-appointed and very clean. The landscaping is beautifully done incorporating native plantings in a clearing in the woods. There are a couple of homes close by - the owners live on the 5 acre property - but there is complete privacy on the cabin area and the woods conceal the nearby homes. It does have a "retreat" feel, and we enjoyed the fire pit and hanging out in the gazebo in the evenings. We went down to the beach a couple of times. It is a little precarious going down there, but well worth it. The kitchen is well stocked (though a dutch oven for steaming the local mussels would be a nice addition - but I cook way more than most people). It's super-quiet and dark at night. The location is a great base for exploring the island - 15 minutes to Langley, 30 minutes to Coupeville. We hiked in all the parks - the South Whidbey State Park was particularly delightful with it's giant trees, heard some music at DjangoFest, and had some excellent brunches in both Langley and Coupeville. I would recommend this property to others wanting a peaceful place to stay on Whidbey."

  • Nestled amidst a pulsing Sound, ancient cedars, and a vaulted sky, Kingfisher welcomed us home.

    "Our vacation included two days of sun, three days of rain, and two days of clouds. It was our best vacation ever. Why? First, A Memorable Dwelling The house was magnificent -- even with the shades drawn. Every nook and cranny -- custom-designed by the owners -- had been thought through. It sparkled. Each of the living spaces had its own thermostat, making it perfect for families whose members have different optimal temperatures. The Kingfisher combined open and intimate spaces that were reconfigured by using Japanese-inspired room dividers. My wife and I could close off our master suite from the jubilant chaos of our daughter's family or open it up as we wished. The kitchen and dining area were graced with a cathedral ceiling. Though they were open to the adjoining living room, the lower ceiling and fireplace there made that nook feel comfy. The towels were unbelievably fluffy, the soaps and shampoos organic creations from Whidbey Island, and the Japanese shower room a real treat. Finally -- whether cloudy, rainy , or sunny -- the views from nearly every window took our breath away. Second, A Remarkable Island Whidbey Island somehow manages to be diverse without being crowded. We spent wonderful time with shopkeepers in Langley and Coupeville. In a store featuring goods from Central Asia the owner told us if we wanted to buy a rug, we needed to take it to our home first and try it out. If it "worked" for us, then we could then buy it. We went to a store bursting at the seams with children's books and companion finger puppets matched to each story. And in a place called "A Touch of Dutch" we found a unique necklace made from sea glass on Whidbey's beaches and hand crafted by a local artist. We hiked in a forest and marveled at a 500-year old cedar. We beachcombed to our hearts' content. We climbed a gentle hill (the only kind I'm climbing these days) for a 360-degree view of the Olympics, Cascades, Saratoga Passage , and Strait of San Juan de Fuca. Perhaps best of all, from Coupeville to Clinton and from Langley to Maxwelton (with the exception of one Dairy Queen) there wasn't a chain store to be found. Third, Owners Without Peer We've stayed at many VBRO properties and never had a bad experience with an owner, but Andrew and Maggie were head and shoulders above everyone else. They took care of every detail, answered every question promptly, and graciously shared their home with strangers who feel like friends."

  • Holidays Spent on Olympic View Drive

    "Teena is an excellent host and we have enjoyed staying in the lower portion of her home twice in the past six months. She has made every effort to anticipate her guests needs while staying here and quickly responded if we did have any questions. The accommodations are clean, well maintained and there is an incredible view from each window. The neighborhood surrounding her home is wonderful for walking while enjoying the views, plus Edmonds is a delightful town to explore. We are grateful to Teena for making us feel comfortable during our visits to the Seattle area."
