    I would recommend Tara in a heartbeat. I would also stay here again. It does not really sleep ten comfortably unless some are kids or you are close family. It needs some shower head repairs and water use is limited by septic system. Something to be aware of but not a reason not to stay here. Tara was very professional and helpful.

      Thank you for your review. We have replaced the shower head hose.

    Timothy J from St. Peters, Mo recommends this vacation rental

    Overall very happy with the experience. The house served us well, but got quite warm in the afternoon with no windows to open to create any kind of a breeze. With no air conditioning it became quite hot inside. Outside of that, the house worked out very well for us.

    • Manager Responded on 8/17/2016

      Thank you for your review. Most homes on Whidbey Island don't have AC, but we will look into the windows for better ventilation.

    We had 10 adults for a birthday party. The home is well worn and the sleeping arrangements are not the best. The 2 Q beds are ok, the twins are rock hard and the trendel and couch pullout well, they are just that. The kitchen, living & dining rooms are somewhat open. That said this house is awesome if good weather & you can mostly be outside. The deck has lots of seating, lawn big enough to play games and beach very close. There is quite a list of to do when checking out, more than usual. All in all, good house for the price. I would not rent this again for 10 adults but for a group with kids, the sleeping would be fine.

    Leslie C recommends this vacation rental

    You can't beat the location right on the water and the view here! We enjoyed watching the cruise ships pass, playing on the beach, roasting s'mores in the back yard, playing croquet and checking out tide pools around the bend of the beach.
    The house has an odd smell about it that you can mostly get used to. I thought it smelled like burnt broccoli but my kids thought it was dog. I know for sure the throw rug in the living room was the worst culprit for the odor. A quick remedy would be to get rid of that. They must also have animals stay b/c my son that has allergies was wheezing most of the time there. It would also be nice if they got rid of some things in the kitchen to make more room for storing food. Even with that list of small issues, I'd probably stay there again (and make sure he brings his medicine). I can't explain how amazing the view is!!! Oh and the neighbors are all really friendly.

    • Manager Responded on 6/7/2016

      We're so glad that you enjoyed the view and a variety of fun activities. We apologize for the smell, the carpets had been cleaned recently and were unfortunately not as dried as we had hoped. The issue should be resolved now for future tenants. We sincerely apologize for the allergic reaction your son experienced. Some of our non pet-friendly houses have still housed pets (usually belonging to the owner of the house), so if renters have an issue with pet allergens, please let us know. We will definitely take a look at the kitchen and see if we can get things more organized so that there is more space for food storage. Thank you so much for all of your helpful comments! We're glad you still enjoyed your stay. Thanks for your review!

    The location is unbeatable. Quiet too. The house has 4 bedrooms, and the second bathroom between 2 back bedrooms did not pose a problem. The kitchen is well-stocked.

    However, someone needs to organize the kitchen and get rid of some utensils that no longer work.

    • Manager Responded on 5/12/2016

      Thank you for your review! We will have someone sift through the utensils. Thank you for your suggestion.

    a guest from University Place, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We had the most wonderful experience at this house. The yard, the deck, and mostly the view are incredible. Looking out at the jagged Olympic peaks provided the escape and the rejuvenation that we all needed. The layout of the house itself is a little funky (the back of the house is almost shotgun style- you must walk through the first bedroom to get to the rest) but it worked just fine for our needs. It had a well stocked kitchen, too. We would definitely stay here again.

    a guest from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We spent 4 nights at the Mutiny Bay cottage and had a great time. We lost power in a wind storm Saturday morning, and power never returned before we left Sunday. For an island that is known for losing power often, it was a little disappointing that there was not a generator or any other provisions beyond candles. Aside from this, the place is great. The view is fantastic. The layout is a bit goofy. One bedroom is a bit exposed with only curtains to shut it off, and another bedroom is only accessible by walking through the master bedroom. But for our needs, this didn't matter and worked fine.

    We had a mini-family reunion here and was a lot of fun. As other reviews have said, it is a little older but I like that they kept it as a beach house. We caught a King Salmon right in front of the house as well as dozens of smaller fish so bring the fishing poles. The location is perfect - it is just a couple houses from the end so very private.

Very cool, because its a shipping lane. Wonderful time on the beach. Nice decks. A fire pit would be a good addition! Thanks

    Our stay was so wonderful! You can't beat the location, right on the beach with the most beautiful sunsets. The nature was spectacular, so many eagles and seals. Overall the house was just what we expected, it's a beach house that's updated enough. It's warm and cozy and wonderful but mostly we were outside the entire weekend. I would HIGHLY recommend this place and hope to be back some day. One note for the next renters, bring your own toiletries (i.e. shampoo) and hair dryer:)

    a guest from Okanogan, Washington recommends this vacation rental

    We had a lovely stay. The location is phenomenal, we enjoyed watching the sunset, the sea life and the ship traffic. ( is a great site to learn about the ships you see).

    We were relieved because, while my son has terrible breathing problems, he had no issues (a rarity for him). I'm very picky regarding cleanliness, and while I'd consider the cleanliness acceptable (not good or bad), we had no allergen problems.

    The layout is a bit awkward, but it worked. Fortunately, the back bedroom had outdoor access, so you don't have to go through the master. There were a few stairs, but it wasn't too much of a problem for those in our group who had mobility issues.

    The location far and away offsets any negatives about the house. Especially when considering the cost of rental and the number of people able to sleep.

    We plan on coming back, hopefully making it an annual family get together! And we've already referred the home to a friend. Property management was great to work with, as we made a few changes to our reservations.

    The overall value is great. Thanks for allowing us to have a lovely, memory-making vacation.

The house has a funky bedroom layout so it's good to know your housemates a bit. The fireplace worked great and the kitchen had most of what we needed. We have already talked about next year when we go back!

    We had a great stay over Christmas at this property. The beach location is wonderful, and at this time of year very quiet. The house was in lovely condition when we arrived and had plenty of comfortable furniture, etc. for guests. The only drawbacks on this property are the quirky bedroom arrangements (you have to walk through the master, and then through the shared bath to get to the other room with a queen bed) and the lack of fundamental kitchen items, like measuring spoons and cups, and a reasonable way to whip cream.
    Were I to rent this property again I would just be sure to bring from home these essential items. The folks at Tara Properties could not have been more helpful in making the reservations!

    • Manager Responded on 1/19/2014

      We want to thank this guest for the nice review and apologize for the lack of kitchen essentials. After a thorough search of the kitchen after their departure, we did find the measuring spoons and cups and a few other items tucked away in the back of a cupboard and pulled them out for easy access again. We are sorry for the inconvenience! This home has a very good variety of essentials for cooking/baking. Thank you!!

    a guest from Livingston, NJ recommends this vacation rental

    The house is in a great location and the views are fantastic. The home itself is older and in need of updates and upgrades throughout. Prospective guests should know that although there are 4? bedrooms, only 1 has a separate hallway entrance. the other 3 rooms require you to 'walk through' one another and this also includes the second bathroom. When considering this rental, be sure you understand the layout and that it works for your group. The property company was very polite and accommodating and keeps the rental relatively clean. If your group requires little privacy and plans to spend most of your time outside and dining out, this is a great spot.

    What a wonderful location - absolutely the best on Whidbey Island! No-bank private beach, nice neighbors, wonderful views of the Olympic Peninsula and shipping channels. Would highly recommend - with the caveat that the 4th bedroom is only accessible through another bedroom and its bathroom (not a problem for us, but could be for two families staying together). Furnishings and kitchen are a little dated, but who cares when you're in a spot like this?

    We really enjoyed our stay. We have two young kids, who adored hunting for seashells, building sandcastles, even saying hello to the neighborhood sea lion lounging on the beach right outside the house. The layout of the house is unusual - you have to walk through the middle of two bedrooms to get to the fourth b'room - and the furniture and appliances are a bit dated, but it worked for our family. We could come again - the location cannot be beat.
