Had a great weekend: home is clean, comfortable, well appointed, peaceful, right on the water. A perfect get away. The beds are comfortable, lounge is good size for hanging out. Great deck off of the kitchen, and beyond the deck is the beach. I was in the master bedroom - it was a delight to look outside and see the water and pleasure boats passing by. It was a pleasure to correspond with the owner; prompt replies, hospitable. I would recommend this VRBO and plan to return.
This is the most perfect rental I have ever had. The house is in a rather secluded location, away from city centers so it is very peaceful and quiet. The decor is simple but elegant. The appliances are state of the art. Self-closing drawers and cupboards, heated floor in the bathroom (!) and two gas fireplaces. The view is spectacular. Just down the road is a fabulous fish market. Also a casino with a very nice steakhouse restaurant. I really didn't want to leave.
This property exceeded our expectations! We had a great time enjoying the oceanfront property and the wonderful kitchen. In total there were 3 couples and two infants and the space suited us perfectly. The beds were comfortable and the amenities were great. A 20 minute drive into downtown Bellingham.
We booked this house for our stay while we were in Bellingham, which is about twenty minutes away. The house is very clean and has an absolutely beautiful setting. While we didn't get to enjoy the house as we would of liked, it was more than we could of asked for and a very nice place to come home to. The beds were all comfortable. We were treated to a couple of stormy nights and it was spectacular.
The owner was most gracious and we would definitely like to stay again during warm weather to take advantage of all the beauty the house has to offer.
This was a nice house however the following were the reasons we would not rate it a 5. We have stayed at many VRBOs and feel we can have a fair evaluation of what you should expect while renting a house or cabin.
1. Communication with the listing owner was a challenge. There was no phone number provided and that should have been our first clue. After multiple emails, the owner called us and we then had his phone number. This was only 2 days before our rental date.
2. Due to number 1 for the very first time in years we felt we needed to purchase the $39 insurance just incase this was a scam, fortunately we got the information in time.
3. The kitchen was lacking pot holders , sufficient cups and glasses, and no coffee pot. Our elderly mother dropped a glass and then has no dustpan to actually deal with the mess... Caused some creativity in our bunch.
On a positive note: This house is on a quiet location with exception of nearby construction.
This house does have a beautiful view of the islands...absolutely beautiful.
