Great for a Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5
This is the ideal beach house for a family vacation. We loved the view and the beach combing. The kids paddled around the lagoon, played games and organized a family ping pong tournament. We enjoyed delicious home cooked meals -- the kitchen has everything you need for a long stay. The bedrooms work very well for families or for multiple couples. Many thanks to the owners -- we will be back!

Relax By the Sea

Terrific family home, with a magnificent view of the Bay, mountains, horizon...comfortable home with all the amenities for a relaxing break. The owner has stocked the family room with board games - fun for children and teens. Don't miss the best little store in Langley -- The Star Store. Enjoy!

We had a marvelous weekend on Whidbey Island. The house is roomy and comfortable, the bedrooms are very large, and two king beds makes it great for two couples to spend time. It was fun to cook, as the kitchen definitely allows for several people to participate. We really liked the huge windows, and watching the weather across the beach and the bay - as well as the sunset! It is a great place to get away and unwind.

The beach is very accessible and endlessly interesting, with birds to watch at all times of the day. We walked into the marshlands, and there are fun things to see there, too. Restaurants, a winery, and a few nice shops rounded out the activities in our short stay. There are lots more places to see and we will definitely be back to stay here.

srping get away

  • 4 of 5
location was wonderful, and the house very nicely furnished. If you need a firm mattress this may not work for you, as it was a problem for me. The mattresses had pillow tops that are very soft. Also too much furniture in the great room to move around in. I would suggest taking a few chairs out. Over all the house is great

Girls' Whidbey Week

Girls' Whidbey Week
  • 5 of 5
My friends and I stayed at this beautiful beach house for a relaxing girls' get-away week. Luxurious accommodations with views of the bay from the two master bedrooms and spectacutlar views of the Olympic Mountains and Mount Ranier from the deck set the stage for a wonderful week. The property offers a great location at the end of a quiet street with opportunities for biking or a morning walk along the lagoon as well as kayaking and walking the beautiful beach front shell hunting at low tide. There is also easy access to nearby shopping and Whidbey Island attractions like Deception Pass. The convenience of the Whidbey transit system, which covers the entire island, and the airport shuttle to and from SEA/TAC left us free from the need for car rentals. We dined at some wonderful Whidbey Island restaurants, such as Greenbank Farms, Seabolts Smokehouse and Gordon's. But with the completely furnished kitchen, we were also able to have breakfast and prepare fabulous meals "at home" such as fresh salmon on the grill. Our vacation was a perfect balance of "touristy" things to do and spending time with friends relaxing on the beach. We will definitely be back!

Celebrate Good Times

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I went to Whidbey and stayed at this house for 5 days. It was absolute heaven! The home was so comfortable. And, speaking of comfortable...oh my gosh, the beds were so incredibly comfortable! The kitchen was well stocked for us to make our gourmet meals. I loved that there was a grill and a fire pit for nighttime fires. The view from the deck was out of this world, and it was great to have comfortable chairs to sit on and watch the sunsets. I would totally recommend this place. It is very comfortable, clean, well stocked, and great views of the bay!
