    a guest from Sequim, WA recommends this vacation rental

    Overall we had a nice time. The cabin is very private and quiet with a nice view of a lagoon. There was plenty of room and the fireplace was nice!

    However there is a very large but. Neither of us were at all happy that the landscaper started working at 8am. We were ASLEEP. We chose this location because it was quiet and private. It was not pleasant in any way to wake up to someone walking by our open window blasting weed eaters, blowers and lawnmowers. Our last chance for some quiet relaxing time before we had to checkout was gone.
    We discovered after he left that our car was covered in lawn debris and leaves.

    Lesson learned, inquire about landscaper schedule when renting.

      Thank you for your review. We are very sorry this happened. Most of our gardeners check to see if there guests staying in a home before they start. We will definately check with the gardener that takes care of this home. We are glad you enjoyed your stay on Whidbey Island.

    a guest from Seattle, WA does not recommend this vacation rental.

    Liked the location of the property, but a few things need improving for us to come back.

    First thing would be new mattresses. The beds were terribly hard, we could hardly sleep no matter how relaxed we got in the hot tub.

    Second thing would be signage on the house. We got there before dark, couldn't figure out which house it was, and the road is very narrow and hard to turn around on. House needs either a clear number or a sign with a name, or notes in the instructions that it is the very first driveway on the right.

    On a smaller note, there was a tv and cable box but it would not turn on, kept saying please wait for this signal or something like that. I don't care if there is a tv, but if it is there it should work.

    Did not attempt to cook there once we saw how small the kitchen was and there was no dishwasher.

    Loved the hot tub and the fireplaces and the general location.

    Anna S from Elizabeth, CO recommends this vacation rental

    It was fabulous! There were a few things on the house I would change. Definitely need a bigger trash can that the raccoons can't get into, they made a mess daily. Bigger fridge! The management was wonderful, a couple things we had questions on or needed they were on it immediately. The cottage is older with 1 bathroom so there was a line forming for showers but we knew that so no problem. LOVE Coupeville!

    John P from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    Located on a nice lagoon, overlooking the eastern side of Whidbey, near Coupeville, this quaint little cabin is a nice little get away for 2-4 people. Ran into a couple of issues, but management was helpful. Having realistic expectations, we were happy and made the most of it.

    Susanna C from Surrey, BC recommends this vacation rental

    I did not give this property 5 stars mainly because we paid $45 for a hot tub maintenance fee, but the hot tub was broken when we got there! We were quite disappointed, as we'd been looking forward to it; and couldn't understand why a place would charge a hot tub fee and yet not use that money to make sure the hot tub was actually functioning properly! Also, the jetted bathtub would have been nice if there was enough hot water to fill it and make it HOT (the hot water tank didn't seem to be able to be adequate). Still, we enjoyed our stay, it was very relaxing and peaceful and private! The home was very spacious and we loved the wood fireplaces and the custom wood decor throughout the place! It made our time so homey and cozy. All in all, we might come back here with our daughters, but probably will look for another place nearby to rent for the two of us. On another note, the property manager, Karen, was very apologetic and friendly and tried to be as helpful as possible, so we were thankful for the service. She even refunded some of our money b/c of the inconveniences. Thanks, Karen!

      As a property manager, it is always an awful feeling when a renter checks in and something is not funtioning properly. This hot tub was treated and inspected only 2 days prior to this guest check in, as we standardly do before a guest checks in. At that time is was functioning property. Unfortunately, the hot tub stopped working prior to the guest checking in without us knowing. We quickly offered a full refund on the hot tub fee, plus a little extra discount on the rent in order to compensate the renter for the inconvenience. Our apology to the renter that they were not able to enjoy the hot tub. These renters were very kind and patient, and we really appreciated that. We look forward to being able to serve them again sometime. We also have not ever heard that the hot water tank is not sufficient to fill the bathtub, and we will be checking into that immediately. Thank you!

    a guest from Abbotsford, BC recommends this vacation rental

    I was in contact with the management company before we confirmed our rental because of negative reviews I had found. Wow, were they wrong! The company was very professional, prompt and helpful with all questions. The cabin was exactly what we had wanted and expected. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The hot tub was clean and worked well. Very private setting, so we were able to use the yard area also. The ocean water off the yard is not really swim-able, but beautiful - especially over morning breakfast on the patio. Im glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews that were expecting the Hilton! It's not a luxury cabin - but perfect for a quiet getaway.

    Mary A from Lynden, WA recommends this vacation rental

    It would have been nice to know how small the refrigerator was before coming up. We brought groceries for the week and ran out of space for them. I also would have liked a recycle bin available, at least for basics like glass. Otherwise, I thought it was a terrific cottage, nicely located, with a great view. Everyone I spoke with from the office was very pleasant and helpful. I will definitely come back.
