132-SMUGGLERS LAGOON BEACH COTTAGE, 257

Greenbank House Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy a secluded getaway in this charming one bedroom home with full sleeping loft.

This homey cottage, high on the west facing bank between Freeland and Greenbank is situated on one of the most exceptional spots on Whidbey Island. With panoramic 180 degree Sound and Olympic views and a private stairway to 4+ miles of sandy walking beach, the cottage provides an ideal getaway for couples, families and artists seeking solitude and inspiration. Enjoy dramatic sunsets, campfires by the beach, hikes through the nearby old-growth forest in South Whidbey State Park. If that’s not enough there’s also outstanding salmon fishing from the beach, and a fine private perch to sit and enjoy a good book while keeping an eye on the shipping lanes. The cottage is nestled in a bald eagle reserve and adjacent to protected tidal lagoons, ensuring both privacy and abundant opportunity for wildlife viewing. A historic fixture on the Island, the cottage was lovingly and meticulously restored in 2000 and features a real wood burning stove**, oak flooring, modern appliances, TV, DVD, CD player, washer/dryer and a rich assortment of games, books and puzzles. When not enjoying the outside activities and views, guests will appreciate the interior paintings and photographs of Bart Rulon, property caretaker, naturalist and renowned local artist.

4 night minimum in July/August

Reviewer Comments:
We stayed here over a long weekend. The location is nice and what we were looking for--secluded and quiet. The deck provides great views and there were many birds to watch from the windows. It's a quick walk down to a very quiet beach directly from the backyard. It is a 10 minute drive to a large grocery store and banks. Its a 20 minute drive to downtown Langley which is a nice place to walk around and get food.

The house was nice enough. There was adequate room for our small family of 4. The loft is unique in that it feels separate from the main living area so our kids were able to nap and sleep there without a problem of noise. The main floor bedroom is very small but the bed was comfortable.

The living room has nice windows looking out on the water but you lose this as soon as you sit on the couch which is too soft. We made use of the wood stove which was cozy and really warmed up the house.

The kitchen was not great. The pans are all in poor condition and some items felt unclean (french press, tea kettle). There were basics missing to make a longer stay comfortable (e.g. measuring spoons, plastic wrap/tin foil, reusable storage containers-the things that are nice to have when you plan to cook in the house). I tried to make a pie but there were many things missing so it required a lot of improvisation.

There was some confusion on the agency's part about our request for early check in but it got cleared up for our arrival. It became a problem again when we got locked out of the house due to a non-functioning access code. Fortunately we got a quick response from the rental company who reset the locks.

Overall a nice play to stay but we may look to another location next time we make the trip.

Reviewer Comments:
Generally, we were happy with the accommodations, although the rental was very small. We couldn't even fit our suitcase in the bedroom. There were some ants in the kitchen when we arrived, and continuously throughout our stay, although their numbers stayed small. The beach was lovely, and we enjoyed the wood stove. Mostly, though, I was miffed by the three additional mandatory fees, which increased each night's stay by nearly 50%--and then the requirement to do a fair amount of cleaning before we left (one of the fees was an $80 cleaning fee).

Reviewer Comments:
Very nice and quiet cabin with a fantastic view of Puget Sound and the passing cruise ships. It was fully stocked with all the kitchen and bath essentials needed for our weeks stay. We seen three deer laying in the front of the cabin when we drove in and five otters passed through the back of the cabin that same night, not to mention the rabbits, chipmunks and eagles in the area. Only one good TV channel though, otherwise very relaxing.

The cottage was cozy and comfortable. The perfect place for 2 people. The view was spectacular. We were lucky and had fabulous weather the entire week. We thought that the deck and deck chairs needed to be powerwashed. A small outside table would be nice as well as wine glasses in the kitchen. Otherwise it met our expectations. We would consider renting again.

BEACH GETAWAY FOR SEAHAWKS GAME

Reviewer Comments:
We looked for a place to get away for the weekend for the kids and for the Seahawks game. The location was great, close to the ferry and right above the beach. The kids had the whole beach, which was sandy and full of driftwood, to themselves. Plenty of yard also to mess around in and play catch. The house is small and cozy, but we fit fine with our 4 kids. Everything but the food in the kitchen. A few cautions about the house. The heaters are very hot, so don't put anything near them or things will melt. Also, the stairs leading up to the upstairs are very steep with no grips on them. We were constantly worried about the kids going up and down them and did have our 7 year old fall down them with an expensive Kindle (bye bye Kindle). We would also suggest the owners level out the kitchen table - its angle makes playing board games difficult. Other than that, the house is great. Thanks so much!
