Island View Retreat

* A great location to entertain

* Gorgeous, sweeping views

* Private beach access -- launch kayaks right from the back yard!

* Dogs welcome

La Conner, WA -- 90 minutes north of downtown Seattle -- has been voted one of the most romantic weekend getaways in the Pacific Northwest. The Island View Retreat is your romantic home away from home while you’re here.

This 1900 sq. ft., 2-bedroom, 1.25-bath home is nestled on a beach, with gorgeous sunset views of the waterfront and Whidbey Island. Downtown La Conner is only 3 miles away and breathtaking Deception Pass is a 15-minute drive.

Entertainment

After you’ve spent the day antiquing, dining, hiking, kayaking or touring Skagit Bay and the surrounding islands (by foot, car, plane or boat), return to the Retreat to unwind.

Windows abound on every floor and in every room of this house. Outside each window, a spectacular view. Here, you’re surrounded by nature at its finest -- tall fir and cedar trees and some of the best bird watching in the Pacific Northwest. If that wasn’t enough -- the surrounding nature provides the utmost privacy.

Outside the home is pure deck-a-dence. Decks on every floor of the home provide amazing views, all leading down to the beach. There’s even a fire pit where you can tell stories, sing songs and make s’mores under the stars.

Kitchen

The open kitchen features a four-burner gas cooktop, traditional oven and microwave. There is plenty of table space along a bank of windows with incredible views -- the perfect place to gather to play games and keep the kids entertained.

Baths

On the main floor you will enjoy a spacious 3/4 bathroom with a tile-surround shower. There is a half bath upstairs – ample space providing guests the privacy they need to get through their morning and evening routines.

Bedrooms

Two bedrooms feature a total of four queen beds and two sets of bunk beds. There’s additional sleeping room in a loft area above one of the bedrooms -- an ideal place for kids.

Whether you rise at dawn or sleep in ‘til Noon, you will awake relaxed, recharged and ready for the day.

La Conner Activities

Bird watching, art walks, the tulip festival, poetry, even a turkey trot -- something’s happening in La Connor and the surrounding islands every week of the year. If you’re interested in doing nothing, this is the perfect place to wander, dine, relax and unwind from the madness of everyday life. Once you get to know the friendly locals, you might never want to leave.

Reviewer Comments:
It was great. Very relaxing. THe place was very clean and had a great view. The only complaints were 1) my disabled wife nearly fell out of a dining room chair, as the leg was broken. Also I think it's a hazard to have the space heater in the bathroom plugged in right over the sink.

As an owner & manger of vacation rentals, I do think the following comments are important to all. While there I tried to work with mgt on problems. I gave up because they kept reminding I got a disc & putting fault on me. Upon arriving I tried to find & start the heater described in house instr. Heater had been removed & a new one was 1/2 installed. I notified mgt of this & understood install would be completed the next day. While there the install was never completed. (Mgt indicated in response that they contacted me 5x I needed to be there.) 1st there was no internet access; 2nd the cell phone was awful; 3rd I never received these messages; 4th isn't that Mgt's job? I was told to use the electric heaters. 3 out of the 5 heaters did not work. (Mgt response-they work.) A heater that pops fuses, or has broken legs is not usable. I tried the fireplace for heat, finding it was not wood but gas & no instr. House instr indicated fireplace was wood, (later mgt said wood fireplace was outside), but house instr did not say this. It was uncomfortable to start a gas fireplace without instr. We found, it ran poorly, no thermostat control & the pilot light had to be restarted all the time. Structural problems-Steps were not equal in height & there was no railing. Some rooms had a 3 inch step difference (making them very dangerous). These were not problems from old structure settling (as indicated by mgt response.) They require we remove the sheets from the beds. We found no pillow liners, mattresses were worn, pad was a stained ripped holey piece of material w/elastic straps. When I had asked if there was internet & mgt never responded. (Later mgt's review response was that it was not on VRBO.) If something is not on VRBO, it does not mean there is none. When a question is asked, mgt should answer it. Website indicated it was an off season disc. (Mgt's response, disc rate was do to no heat.) If I had known there was no heat, no internet, poor cell phone service, I would not have rented this place. Beware if you rent this place, it is structurally unsafe, mgt gives lots of rules, but does not accept responsibilities, if you need help expect none. In the end mgt answer is you got a disc, what did you expect. I expected heat, linen in good condition, a safe structure, & help from mgt. I have never heard of a vacation rental mgt expecting their guest to stay home from a day of activities to be available to installation men. Again, that is mgt's job.

Reviewer Comments:
Our group gathers twice a year to talk about the books we are writing. We like a scenic place with good places to write, sleep, eat, and kick back. We were happy with the setting from the big windows, but dismayed when we walked outside on the deck and saw beer cans that had been thrown over the side by previous visitors and never picked up. Also, the step-downs from different levels are disconcerting. You have to be vigilant not to trip. But the view is lovely and it was quiet.

Reviewer Comments:
My entire family enjoyed our stay. The upstairs was used for a young family and was perfect for them to get the kids in bed away from everyone else. Plenty of space and I didn't hear any complaints about the bed. The sunsets were amazing and loved all the windows. The town of La Connor was great also.

Reviewer Comments:
Our family of 7 had a lovely, peaceful, fun long weekend. We actually only live 25 minutes away, but it felt like we were far from home. Loved the views, the beach, the open concept living/kitchen space, and satelite TV--we watched the Seahawks and the Huskies. The place was very clean and welcoming. We played games (including basketball)and brought kayaks and were able to explore by water. Only missing star was owing to a broken kitchen chair and broken beach chair. But we got along just fine.

Reviewer Comments:
I was not going to respond to this survey. I decided what good would it do to tell people we did not enjoy our visit. However, they kept asking so here you go. The house was strange and uninviting. The area not kept up and not what we envisioned next to Puget Sound.
