Wonderful Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

The "House at Whidbey" was a great beach getaway for my family. The house, beach, and spa are absolutely as great as they look in the photos and we were amazed at the amount of things to do at the house, beachcombing, sports, picnics, spa, etc. This house is unique in its offering for family-focused fun and was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the island.

Needs some maintenance

  • 3 of 5

It's always a bad sign when you feel like you have to apologize to your guests over the state of the house you are renting. I felt like it spoiled some of the fun of our weekend away.

First the good- it's a great location right on the beach and the hot tub was lovely and the kitchen was fully stocked.

The challenge was that it was a really rough place to stay with a group of 10 adults. The master bedroom and the other bedroom with a view upstairs were nice.

The back bedroom with the bunk bed didn't seem to have any heat that we could find. Even with the door to the bedroom open, they had to have electric blankets to keep warm and the bunk bed was squeaky so you couldn't move too much.

The outdoor "shed" with the second bunk bed was unusable as it smelled too heavily of mold. It just didn't feel healthy to put people in there.

The other fold out bed is in the garage - the third building- which is outside and down a path from the house and also doubles as a small game room. You have to have a code to get back in the house as the door can't stay unlocked, which is tough when you have to run in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.

And the sofa bed in the livingroom was a light foldout, so we just put someone on the couch. Honestly it was just really awkward and, as it snowed while we were there, it was uncomfortable and cold for half our guests. We lit a big fire in the stove and poured more wine.

The rest of the house just needs some basic maintenance. Moss was growing on the roof, the tables were peeling, the microfiber chair was worn black on the edges, the decks need painting and most of the furniture was worn. It could be a really cute place, but needs some attention. It feels like this is a better place for a family of kids in the summer.
