Lovely cabin, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin is spotless clean and feels new. The morning sunrise across the water is magical. The host was very responsive. I would highly recommend it.

Cozy, Practical, and Enchanting

  • 5 of 5

It was truly a home away from home: cozy, practical, and enchanting. Tami was responsive and welcoming through the VRBO e-mails. We look forward to staying here again.

This is lovely little cottage

  • 3 of 5

It is immaculate, well-furnished from dishes to linens (I would improve quality of pillows though) to furnishings. But there is no washer/dryer. The place doesn't get much sun, and it took a long time for little things like unders to dry. We did ask owner where we could do laundry for larger items and the laundromat is easy to find, and clean. The cottage was smaller than we expected, which might not have caused any issues if we had been able to spend most of the days out and about. But my husband got quite sick and being confined in a small space with a sick person was difficult (didn't feel like doing much touring on my own and most of the things we planned to do involved driving, catching a ferry, day-trips, etc.). The view is absolutely magnificent, and the grounds quite lovely. If we had been able, we would have taken out the croquet set for a match as weather was perfect when we were there, lots of sunny days. I did take the recommended walk (the owner has a map in the information folder) along the water, was quite easy to get to and well worth it. The owner has done a great job with a small cottage. I highly recommend this place. The 3 stars are only because of it being a bit too small. But from reading the guest book, I believe we are the only ones who thought so, all reviews were glowing. It just felt a little confined to us (in general and for reason stated above). The owner is a lovely woman, quite willing to come over quickly to help adjust TV issues. The price was reasonable as we got a discount for staying a week. This was our first experience with VRBO, and was overall quite positive. Deposit refunded quickly, also.

Beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was perfect. It was an immaculate home on a serene piece of property. The attention to detail was appreciated. We will definitely be returning when we come back to visit family.

immaculate little home, great view

  • 5 of 5

This home made us think tiny living was absolutely possible. It was immaculate inside, with the perfect decor. The home got a lot of light, and the views were beautiful- harbor and Mt. Baker. A lot of care was put into this home and everything we needed was readily available.

The downtown area of Oak Harbor was a short stroll along a nearby path (the owner provides details on how to get to the path).

If we were to visit the island again, we would definitely wish to stay at this property.

About Tami Encinas

My husband has lived on the island for most of his life and I have been here for over 20 years. We absolutely love that we live in such a beautiful place and are blessed to be able to call the island home.

Tami Encinas purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Tami Encinas chose Oak Harbor

We fell in love with this property because of it's location. It is situated in a very "protected" section of the island with warmer temperatures and less wind than you'll find elsewhere. It is also within walking distance to town. Very convenient to grocery stores or coffee shops and restaurants.
