WONDERFUL WEEKEND WITH FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
I recently celebrated my 50th birthday with a group of girlfriends at this lovely home. It was the perfect spot for us to relax, cook some great meals, and just generally enjoy each other's company. The kitchen is excellently stocked with pots, pans, glasses and many tools to make many a gourmet feast. We took full advantage of the grill! The house is located towards the north end of the island, but it's a nice drive to the Farmer's Market in Bayview. If you forget something, there's a Safeway about 10 minutes away.
The interior decorating is beautiful, the house is warm and inviting, and to sit on the rear deck and watch the sun go down, especially from the hot-tub is just sublime. The front yard is fenced, secure and equally inviting. We even had a resident bald eagle come and spy on us for a bit. It was exciting to see him/her so close! Sadly we never saw the otters, perhaps next time!
I feel so thankful that my friends and I got to spend such a lovely weekend together in such a beautiful home.
Thank you, Carolyn. This was a weekend I'll never forget, and your lovely home will always be a part of it.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
Myself, my husband and our two daughters (ages 10 and 12) stayed for 8 nights at the end of June into July. The house is just as described if not better! The kitchen is stocked with everything for anything that you may want to prepare. The furniture and beds were extremely comfortable and everything was clean and in great condition. We felt like we were home, only in the most beautiful, peaceful and amazing setting that I have ever experienced. The location of this house is simply amazing. We loved sitting on the back deck and watching the ocean and the amazing sunsets. We saw otters and eagles. The owners of the house were wonderful and easy to work with, everything went smoothly and perfectly. We could not have asked for a better vacation. It is now September as I write this review and I think about our vacation to this area and this home everyday. We will be back!

'A' FOR RELAXATION AND COMFORT!

'A' for relaxation and comfort!
  • 5 of 5
Love this home! This tri-level home is one of the most relaxing homes out there. The pictures just cannot convey the peacefulness of the surroundings. Ocean on one side with a large lake on the other. Man cave on the lower level allows those who want to watch tv or play games do so while those who want pure relaxation listening to the waves to do that on the main level of the home. Can hear waves in the master bedroom as well!

I brought my parents and three small dogs and everyone, including the dogs were very at home. Home has everything you need, you never have to leave if you don't want to! However, Deception Pass and just exporing the island are both great activities. Home is very close to all amenities.

Owner was great to work with! I'm hoping we are able to vacation here again soon.

AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We visited for the first time this beautiful home located RIGHT on the beach. It was absolutely amazing! Huge deck w/comfortable chairs overlookin views and relaxing sounds of the ocean, sea life, birds - including eagles & gorgeous sunsets. Easy access to the beach from the deck. We used the BBQ one night for dinner - It was nice to have that option. The layout of the house is very nice and comfortable. The decor/style and colors are beautiful--Loved it! Very cozy. Lots of windows to take in the sights and sounds! We enjoyed the stereo/CD system with I-Pod attachments in the living room. The propane fireplace - so relaxing! What a weekend - the best/warmest of the year! Such great timing. Calm, sunny days. What s treat for Oceanfront & on the west side of the island. We will definately be back again! Thank you for such a memorable experience!!

BEACH HOUSE EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Our overall experience at the beach house was great. The photos of the listing accurately reflected how the house looked "in person". We were greeted by the owner and show how everything worked in the house. The owner also provided phone number, and email address and was very accesible. As a family of six, many of the other listings led us to believe we had to be creative to accomodate us. This one was the opposite, we slept six comfortably.

The property was clean and well maintained, both in and outside. There was some maintenance work being done on the exterior of the home but some of the items left was simply due to the workes not being finished with their work. Though you can walk along the coastline, it is not one you would consider laying out on the beach.

We stayed during the November, December time frame and we slept to the sound of the waves off the master bedroom. We were even able to enjoy some time on the deck during this time of year. When the tide is high, the waves do splash up against the base of the house.

The house comes totally equipped with everything we needed (laundry room, internet, cable, music, books to read, and a magnificent kitchen). The house is located within 5 to ten minutes of the Naval Base, Restaurants, and of course Wal - Mart. There is a golf course that is about a 3 minute drive from the house and has spectacular views of the ocean. Overall....a simply wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: During your stay, we had the highest tide ever on record, (14' tide) accompanied with 50 to 60 miles an hour winds. This was the first time that any water had reached the house.

BREATHTAKING!

  • 5 of 5
The Retreat at Sunset Beach is an incredible vacation destination. The views and sunset are stunning in every way.......the San Juan Islands and Olympic Mountains are in full view from the deck. The home is so comfortable and offered us all we needed for a wonderful vacation. My husband and I enjoyed walking the beach and exploring the Island. We found it very peaceful to listen to the waves as we drifted off to sleep each night. There is so much to do on Whidbey Island, walking around Coupeville, Anacortes, and eating at Fraser's Gourmet Hideaway and 123 Thai in Oak Harbor were personal favorites. Thanks again for a wonderful holiday. Mike and Cindy
