    We thoroughly enjoyed our time on Whidbey Island. We went crabbing and clamming and enjoyed the sun and the beach. The unit is right on Holmes Harbor and the view of sunrise is spectacular. The unit is just a short drive to Freeland for grocery shopping etc. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. The only drawback was the dirty carpet. Vinyl throughout would make the place easier to keep clean and sanitary. Thank you for a fun holiday!

    We had a great stay at the Beach Cottage. Our 3 year old loved playing on the beach at low tide and finding clams, crabs and other sand creatures. We went to a wedding nearby and it was a perfect location. We loved going for walks to the park just across the bay and watching eagles, seals etc cruise around. We never used the downstairs part.

    We had 6 adults and 3 small children. The space was very good for us... nicely appointed and well stocked for meals at home. We could have used more lamps upstairs and down and more out door lighting as we arrived at check-in which is dark in winter and the back stairs could be better lit. We found several good day trips and restaurants near by. Overall a very good rental experience. Thank you!

    a guest from Moorpark, CA recommends this vacation rental

    The location is spectacular. The management staff was attentive and timely - and bent over backwards to ensure that our stay was fabulous -- and it was!!! This is a perfect place if you're more interested in location and comfort than you are in being pampered in elegance; it's not that. It's a well-loved property (in spirit of the children's book "The Velveteen Rabbit"). The kitchen isn't very organized, the furniture is not showroom quality, and in places, the floor seems to lean. The downstairs might be good for kids but is not comfortable for adults due to low doorways and a crossbeam that could knock you out if you hit it squarely. And somewhat unpredictably, the drummer immediately next door could launch into drum practice, which absolutely can kill the mood if you're trying to enjoy the deck. But ... the place is in a drop-dead location on the water, and the views from inside and outside the rental are to die for. And that was at Christmastime! We had a fantastic time and bet you will, as well, as long as you're aware of what to expect. Enjoy!

    a guest recommends this vacation rental

    We really liked staying at this property. The only complaint I would have would be the fact that it is not in the description (I'll have to go back and check, though) that the third bedroom/second bathroom is only accessible from the outside and not from say, an inside staircase from the main floor. This was only a problem because we had a toddler (who knows how to unlock doors) staying downstairs and his parents wanted to spend some adult time upstairs with the rest of us. A baby camera/monitor was used and all was good. I just wish we would have known that originally. That was my absolute only complaint. The rest of the stay was brilliant. The view was amazing, the beds were really comfortable and the kitchen was really well stocked. Thank you to the Meyer family and to Tara Property Management!

    • Manager Responded on 7/19/2016

      We're so glad you liked the property! I did check the description and we do emphasize that the basement is "separate and private", but hopefully your review will help future guests understand that there is indeed a separate entrance to this part of the house. Thank you for your review!

    I was very pleased with the house. The location was great for us, very close to town and Dancing Fish Farms. The view from the deck is beautiful, beach access is very close from the back deck. The house had everything we needed and more. The only negative was the downstairs bedroom and bathroom only has access from an outside door under the deck, you can't get to it from the main level inside of the house. I would definitely rent this house again if I was in traveling to this area.

    The management company was GREAT to work with and went out their way to was my sons birthday & I wanted to bake a cake, Tara Property Manag. check on pans in the rental!Location of rental was wonderful, peaceful and great views.Great grocery stores and prices were not any different from Seattle.That is why I gave our overall stay 5 for the condition of the rental,it need some work.The house it self is fine but 1 of the sofas in the living room needs to be replaced BADLY.When you sit on it you are almost sitting on the floor.Actually sitting on the floor was more comfortable.This made for a problem since we had 8 people and were very short on sitting room.The bar stools do not feel safe to sit on.When my 9 year granddaughter sat on the bar stool it wobbled(all the joins are very loose)and we had her get off and no one used them the whole weekend.The beds had some kind of mattress covers on them that made all of us sweat and the weather was cool when we were there.We are from the Sacramento valley so we are use to VERY warm weather.When we were there the air temp. felt very cool to us so really no reason to be so warm in bed at night.The house could also use some regular drinking glass.They had a lot of wine glass but very few glass.I marked Yes on the "recommend property to a friend" hoping that the above comments were address.I would go back BUT ONLY if above comment were taken care of.

    Jennifer A from Long Island City, NY does not recommend this vacation rental.

    Stayed for a weekend with my mom and friend, and we found the cottage to be a nice getaway spot for a few days. Lovely view of the water and nice area surrounding the house -- private even though it's in a neighborhood.

    The inside looks exactly like the pictures -- a bit dated and wanting a few updates, but still cozy. We ended up only using the upstairs area (2 bedrooms, 1 bath) because we didn't realize the downstairs wasn't connected (i.e. it's a separate apartment-type space with an outside entrance under the back deck - missed that in the property description). Also worth mentioning we're all fairly tall (5'11) and the downstairs ceiling was uncomfortably low. It would be great for kids in the summer, but didn't make sense for 3 tall grown-ups during rainy weather.

    A few notes for guests: It's an older house, so there is a general lack of plugs in convenient places (i.e. to make room for a phone charger I unplugged something in the bedroom thinking it was a lamp, and realized later I had unplugged the internet...). They did provide a power strip which was a big help! There are puzzles and games to amuse, as well as some DVDs & VHS tapes, but the TV/stereo situation is limited (i.e. it's an older TV without HDMI hook-up, stereo has only one working speaker).

    • Manager Responded on 5/12/2016

      Thank you for your review! We have checked the house description to make sure that the separate basement is clearly explained so it won't inconvenience guests in the future. Thank you for bringing that to our attention. We are sorry for any other inconveniences and will look into taking care of those! Thanks again!

We each took a turn cooking and mostly had meals on the deck. Made a fire in a pit, sang songs, played games and stargazed at night. What a memory we created.
    The reason I gave 4 stars on the condition, was that the master bed was a bit too soft and squeaky. It's a beautiful property and I highly recommend this place to others.

The screen was worn and torn, but overall the unit had everything we needed. The lower apartment was quaint although the shower was quite low for our tall children.

The home was very clean and accommodating. Please note, that there is no TV service; there is only a DVD/video player. (I didn't notice that part in the description.) Everything was great except the beds are not the best. If they would put a simply topper on them, it would help. However, the pull-out couch was the MOST comfortable one that I've ever seen!

    Our 28 year old son wanted to start a new family tradition so myself, my husband, our 18 and 28 year old sons booked this house for the weekend after Christmas. We drove in and stopped to see Deception pass, Coupeville and Fort Edbey before arriving at the rental. The pictures and description did not do this house justice. It has an amazing view and is in a perfect location. We loved the house and couldn't ask for anything more. It cleared up on Saturday and we were able to sit on the deck and enjoy the sun and beautiful setting. The house was perfect for our weekend with plenty of kitchen supplies and the bed in the master bedroom is amazing. We had a great time playing games, talking and just hanging out staring at the beautiful water, we kept the shades/blinds open the entire trip. Our son has friends that have a private beach so we were able to go clamming and cook some wonderful meals. We would recommend this to everyone and hope to be able to come back soon.

    We enjoyed our stay at the property. The backyard stretches all the way down to the stairs that lead to the water. The deck spans the width of the house.

    The house is cozy and a bit dated. The finishes are average and the kitchen does not include a dishwasher. The bedroom that faces the water is bright and airy, but the other bedroom is dark. There is only one bathroom upstairs. There is an additional room and bathroom downstairs, but it must be accessed by a separate, outdoor entrance.

    Our experience was good, overall. However, there were a few negatives:
    1. We found a small amount of blood on the sheets in the second bedroom.
    2. There are noisy neighbors immediately to the south who subjected us to verbal abuse towards his dog and his children. He also plays the drums.
    3. Pictures indicate that there is a fire pit on the deck. It is no longer there and we brought wood and were very disappointed.

    We had kids ages 7-15 with us, so separate downstairs sleeping/bath area was great. House was clean, ready to use. One caution: any beach use requires wearing water shoes, as it's rocky and full of barnacles. Wearing them allowed for good swimming, tidelands exploration, playing and walking.One idea for a day trip: take Keystone ferry to Pt.Townsend and visit Marine Science Center at Ft.Worden. There's no fireplace on deck as photos show.

    We loved our stay at 5213 Bercot. The house had ample room for my family. The boys loved having the entire downstairs to themselves while my wife, daughter and myself used the two upstairs bedrooms. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, pots, plates, glasses, etc. You couldn't ask for a better view of the fireworks from the deck. The seal lions and eagles were regular visitors right outside our door, not to mention the deer that roamed the area. My sister in law lives down the street so the location was perfect for our family get-togethers. I would love to rent that house again.

    Our second time on Whidbey, and the location was well chosen. Close enough to Langley to shop and eat, yet not too far from Coupeville and other island towns. We did not go to Deception Pass as we had been there once before. Especially enjoyed hiking in South Whidbey State Park, where some could hike down to the beach and others do the full hike though the park. As I had read in other reviews, the 3rd bedroom, down on ground level, has a separate entrance which might be desirable for some renters, but we did not use that bedroom because it did not connect w/ the rest of house. Lovely views from inside and deck, and our 5 year old granddaughter enjoyed the little beach and picking up shells.

    Dorothy C from North Bend, WA recommends this vacation rental

    3 generations on vacation together, salmon surf fishing was great, early morning and late evenings on the deck were my favorite times. didn't have cable tv, that was okay, lots of conversation, played games, watched movies, digging clams with grandchildren, swimming and fishing on Goss Lake. Only drawback, the day we went to Langley, Tuesday, the shops were all closed. If we had inquired would have visited another day. The best vacation ever!!!! Thank you, will book again next year

    Jim R from Calgary, AB recommends this vacation rental

    I was very impressed with the rental property.
    The fitted sheet on the master bed could fit snugger as it had a tendency to move about. Not a real problem though. Kitchen very well provided with all the necessities. WiFi was a blessing for the kids toys, games etc.
    Would rent again if the need arose. Tara Vaction Rental found to provide excellent service.

    Pretty good over all-just needed a dish washer-too much time of vacation spent in washing dishes. No kitchen ammenities like blenders mixers and absolutly no large serving bowels which we very much needed. Have been in other rentals and expected to fully stocked with hand soap dish soap laundry soap and only enough for hardly one evening and had to keep going to the store cause kept running out of these things.

    We were concerned because there were no railings going down from the parking area and none going up to the front door. the stairway going off the deck and into the basement was not completed. The frying pans were in very bad condition. One of the people that work for you was nice enough to bring over dish towels and a pan to wash the dishes.

    This was a wonderful experience for my family. Overall, we were very satisfied, the property was in very satisfactory condition, the location was perfect, the property was very clean, and Karen was very professional with a lot of heart as well. We will stay here again. The only problem was that we did not have enough time to spend at the home as we had a family reunion and family emergency while staying. The house was, however, a welcome and relaxing place to go when we could.

    We had a fabulous time at the Bercot Beach Cottage. We loved that we had access to the water right from our back yard (bring water shoes though as it's very rocky, not sandy). My boys LOVED the hammock and we all loved the view. Loved that the fully equipped kitchen was open to the living room so we could catch while we cooked.

    Since we did not really have a view of the property we were renting, the trip out was filled with some nervousness. However, that all changed when we got there. Not only was the scenery beautiful, the neighborhood was clean and quiet!! The accommodations were bigger than we had expected. The next time we go to Washington, we are definitely calling Tara Properties first!!

    a guest from Napa, CA recommends this vacation rental

    My husband & I with longtime good friends, arrived at Bercot Cottage in the late afternoon. We fell in love with it almost immediately. It is cozy, comfortable and picturesque. We felt like guests in a friend's home. The cottage was clean and well stocked
    with necessities. A small problem with a partially plugged toilet finally resolved itself the day before we left. A plumber would have been helpful. The views from the livingroom and the deck of the tidal action and the boats at anchor was very tranquil. The
    town of Freeland has a large grocery & hardware store only 5 minutes drive away. Exploring Whidbey Island was relaxing. Seabolts Deli in Oak Harbor provided us with fresh seafood. Bring DVD's or VHS tapes if you wish to watch TV as there is no TV signal. We
    hope to be able to stay at Bercot Cottage again for a relaxing vacation.

    Great location and comfy house. wish I had read that the third bedroom was downstairs with outside access only, no window coverings and very low ceilings. Dishes needed to be washed before using, no dishwasher. Beds ok, but with divot in master, good sofabed. Amazing deck with nice outdoor fireplace and nice rocky beach. Good kitchen spaces, good appliances, cabinets to full to store food. Bought our own TP as there was only 1/2 a roll. Might stay again with different family members. Not a great fit for 8 people.

    We really enjoyed staying at this beach house, it had great views and was very cozy. We were surprised to learn that the basement was detached from the upstairs... you have to walk around outside to get to it and there are no window coverings. We think this should have been included in the description. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay.

    This was our first time for vac rental, everything we needed was there at the house from roasting marshmellow forks,binoculars,wood for fire places, kitchen ware to toilet paper etc.
    Bad parts were the BIG BIG spiders in the basement bed room, needs to be debugged, and the main floor creeks terrible when people walk on it and your
    trying to sleep below. Other wise we enjoyed are stay.

    We were celebrating our mother's 86th birthday and she had a wonderful time. The house is comfortable, the view is phenomenal, the location is central to so many lovely sights.

    We all love to cook and it was a well-equiped kitchen which you rarely find in a vacation rental.

    Thank you for the lovely memories.
