The house had a beautiful view. It was amazing to watch the tide come in and go out. There are 3 bathrooms. That worked for us. The bathrooms were clean, there were plenty of towels. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed and many more.The house was equipped with everything you would need. It was about 20 minutes from the ferry. Good location. The Star market in Langley had excellent Rosemary bread and everything you needed. Tara Property Mgt answered all my questions promptly. Thank you for a wonderful visit.

This beachfront getaway was absolutely perfect for our family to enjoy a relaxing time away together. The house had everything we could want or need to make our stay comfortable. When we walked in the views were jaw-dropping. The house was immaculate, beds were all so cozy and comfortable, the kitchen was probably one of the most fully equipped we have seen in a rental and for a family who enjoys cooking it was perfect for meal making as well as BBQs out on the deck. The dining room has spectacular views as does the living room having windows all around making you feel like you are outside even when in. We loved having fires in the fireplace and shooting pool and playing games in the rec room. House is large and offers room for family to spread out and have their own space. Having three bathrooms was a plus as well even with only having a tub in the master. The neighborhood was quiet and we enjoyed walks down to the beach and loved just sitting on the beautiful deck and listening to the water lap up against the rocks. Tara Property Rentals were so amazing to work with and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. We would absolutely return to this one of a kind home again. We hated to say good-bye to this magical place.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your comments. We are so happy that you found a "getaway" that was "absolutely perfect for your family" on Whdibey Island. We hope to help with you next stay on the Island so you can have another "magical" time with your family.

Very disappointed in this property, needs serious help with cleaning, master bedroom carpet smells of urine, several pee stains. Bed sheets, pillows, couch smell. When you enter there is a terrible smell, kitchen needs remodel, wasn’t pleasant to cook in it, didn’t feel clean. Beach access is dangerous to attempt.
Sunrise was gorgeous and location is great that’s about it!

This is our 3rd summer back and once again we were not disappointed! The views were outstanding which included beautiful sunrises and sunsets, crabs, seals and eagles! Don’t forget the bunnies! This property is perfect for a family or girls weekend getaway! We will be back again next summer for our annual family vacation!

We loved the location. The house space was wonderful. Loved all the amenities. Overall we had a wonderful experience with family and friends. Suggestions would be 4" foam on the twin beds. Dining chairs were sticky so we didn't use it. A few more Plastic chairs for the deck. Chairs in the living room were a bit uncomfortable. More garbage bags and a dodge pooper scooper would be great. Cleaning up to leave was abreezr. We hope to rent again next year.

The views and location of this house were amazing, but the cleanliness and over all condition were really lacking.

The bedroom with the pink carpet had a very stale smell and the carpet had huge stains on it. The rec room had a musty smell. The room with twin beds (which doesn't have a floor to ceiling wall) had sheets FULL of sand. Many of the pots were dirty. The ice maker didn't work until I pulled it out and emptied it and put it back in and there was a strong smell of sewage at the front of the house.

In addition, the deck furniture was sub par, with the chaise being the only truly adequate furniture. The patio chairs had a sticky substance that came off on all of our pants and the white plastic chairs were barely holding together.

The renovated bedroom and bathrooms were lovely and almost seemed to be from a different house.

Finally, the couch and chair in the living room were super old and had no support.

We loved our stay, and the view and the location, but there were just to many misses over all.

We had a great weekend on Bells Beach. The house is roomy and well appointed. The 180 windows in the family room allow to still enjoy the view when the wind kicks up.
Beach access is difficult from the home but public trail is not too far at end of lane.
Eagles,herons, otters, seals and other wildlife were entertaining as we relaxed on the large deck.

Thank you for your comments, we are glad that you had a great weekend and hope to see you again soon.

Location! Location! Location! The house is just a stone throw away from the beach. You can feel the ocean next to you when it’s high tide. When is low tide, the kiddos can actually get down to the beach through the seawall to have a little play and catch some sea creatures. The house is a bit aged but very clean. The master bedroom has no shower only the jacuzzi tub. I find it a bit strange. But no big deal. The front patio area is simply gorgeous. Love spending time outside enjoying the view and listening to the sound of the ocean. Priceless! We love the location and will definitely come back again. The only complain we have is with the management. They changed the lock code but never informed us. We stood in front of the door trying to figure out what went wrong. When we finally called them, they just replied ‘you had the wrong code’. I would appreciate an e-mail confirmation of the new code though. Anyway, this is a beautiful home with awesome view. If you are looking for a beachfront home to relax for a few days, this is the one.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your review and feedback! We are happy to hear you had a great stay! Our huge apologies to this guest that they had the wrong lock box code. We recently changed the code and our records indicated that the new code had been sent to them. We are very sorry for the inconvenience! We hope you can stay again!

We had a great time at this fantastic beach house on Bells Beach. The weather couldn't have been better the entire weekend we were there. Both mornings offered 2 of the most beautiful sunrises I've ever seen. The house was the perfect layout for 4 adults and 2 kids. We didn't need the third bedroom but nice to have the option. Rooms were all very separate from each other for a good amount of privacy. The house had everything we needed. We will definitely be coming back!

We were in awe as soon as we opened the door and saw the view outside the front windows. Picture perfect. The Beach House was equipped more then I expected, everything one needs is there for your use. One bedroom with twin beds is quite small, and not as comfortable as the other two bedrooms. There is a huge recreational room with pool table and 2nd TV and game table. All in all it was very adequate.

Three mothers and three daughters, four of whom flew in from Denver, had the pleasure of staying at the Bells Beach House. The view was amazing, there was seating for all of us, and the three bathrooms and bedrooms made it very comfortable. The house was clean and the house is well maintained. During our stay we visited locally wineries and distilleries including Spoiled Dog (highly recommended) and Whidbey Island Distillery. We ate at Salt Water in Langley and had ice cream at Sprinkles. We will definitely be back!

This well-maintained and beautiful home was perfect to accomodate my family reunion! We cooked most meals at the house, and found everything we needed in the kitchen. The house was very clean and provided nice linens and the fluffiest towels I have ever seen. There is ample space to spread out both inside and outside. We enjoyed the community beach, down the road, for daily walking and the front beach for swimming/boating. It is a quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors and close to Langley, which is a fun little town. Outdoor shower was a benefit to wash off the salt water. This place provided us a much needed respite/vacation. Highly recommended!

The house was great for 8 adults and 3 small boys. Access to the beach at lowtide was a bit of a challenge given the needed rock retaining wall, but everyone managed. The neighbor to the north was very accommodating in allowing us to access the "beach to put our canoe in the water. The fishing was also fun. Great access to fun places on the island, and especially Langley - a cute little town. Wineries for tasting, ferry to Port Townsend, Deception Pass all accessible within an hour.

I'll start by saying, "it was really hard to leave at the end of our stay." The home is located on a great beach with great views. We saw dolphins and seals which only enhanced our visit. The home itself is lovely. Lots of room for guests, great living spaces and kitchen (which comes fully equipped)! The rooms are lovely and comfy - with lots of storage. I would encourage anyone to stay here with the caution that you will not want to leave! I cannot wait to go back!
Tara Property Management were also very helpful and prompt in answering questions regarding our stay!

This house has a very quirky layout but we loved it. The view cannot be beaten. it is a very quiet location. The staff at Tara were very accommodating, giving us an early check in of 2 was wonderful being able to take our aging dog. The condition of the house is a bit tired. There were a few burnt out light bulbs, a broken light fixture next to the bed in the master, the vent cover for the fan in the shower in the middle bathroom needs serious cleaning.The cupboard door in the kitchen would not stay shut and the rubber band supplied to keep it closed broke. One of our husbands fixed the door temporarily and we supplied a new closing device. This door was a major irritant as the kitchen is galley style and really only suitable for one person at a time.(the cupboard door was mentioned in the journal by a previous renter). The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and dishes etc.but there was little supplied in the way of dishwasher pucks and plain dish soap, we had to go out and purchase our own. There are many spider carcasses behind the couch in the master bedroom also. It made me a bit nervous that there were no fire extinguishers present in the home.I have mentioned all these items so you will know to fix them.the house has excellent wi fi and cable service All that being said, it was an enjoyable time. The location is Awesome!

Our girls get-a-way is every year for 3 nights (10 years) and we try different locations. The home was very roomy, and spacious. However, the white coffee table in the living was broken, and we had to adjust the legs to keep it upright, really needs to be fixed. The lockbox was very difficult to manage with stiff fingers and the lock didn't want to stay in the unit. We were worried that it wouldn't lock up the house when we left. The rain and thunderstorm were exciting, but the gutters were going "crazy" trying to keep up with the runoff of the rain due to being so much moss on the roof filling the gutters up.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your review and feedback! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and we are sorry about the coffee table and lockbox. We will look into those right away as we were not aware of an issue with them prior. We have notified the owners about the rain water runoff.

Day trips around the island, shopping in Langley and Coupeville and to the North end of the island to enjoy Deception Pass Bridge and Park. The house was spacious, the views spectacular and the accommodations wonderful. We would definitely stay here again. The staff was extremely helpful prior to our arrival and we did not have need to contact them during our stay because the home was in great shape already.

This home's location and outdoor area on the water is what makes it special. We had lovely weather and were so lucky to enjoy it. The back of the house is extremely old, musty and dated and the kitchen is very narrow. The coffee pot also wouldn't work. I would say the media room back there and twin bedroom are places you don't want to spend much time in. When this house is thoroughly renovated (it appears to be in the process), it'll be a stunner. There were lots of towels, shampoos, good linens, lots of cups and plates, etc for us. You can tell the owners are thoughtful and want others to enjoy their home. The management company could do a better job airing the place out and making sure it's ready for guests. Unfortunately, allergy suffererers may have some problems due to mustiness and perhaps mold. Overall, because we had great weather, we had a wonderful time. My children loved exploring the beach at low tide. The house is in a great location on the island for field trips and grocery runs. Nice sunset too. I would stay here again and can't wait to see what the owners have in store for it in the future.

Lovely quiet dead end street - beach out front is fun to explore at low tide, and Bells Beach just at the end of the block is full of drift wood and adventure too. BBQ was great, rec room slept out gaggle of kids. Super comfortable beds and pillows. You have to walk through the rec room area to get to the master bedroom, but it's huge and private and gorgeous (and our kids didn't mind!) Eagles, Great Blue Herons and bunnies were just a few of the creatures we saw. Fantastic weekend!

Getting to the house and into the house was easy peasy. The house has a bit of an awkward layout but who cares with a front room of waterfront views. We saw whale spouts each morning...seals, dolphins, lots of water fowl and even an otter. We would stay again.

We rented this waterfront home for 3 nights to celebrate my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. The house is in a wonderful location ... right on the water, the view is spectacular ... we saw whales! It's a very quick drive to Langley and other spots on the island. It was very well equipped and had everything that we needed. We all loved the pool table and had the weather been warmer, we definitely would have used the bbq and the deck. There were 9 of us ... 2 couples ... 2 single adults ... 2 teens and a 10 year old.

Overall we had a great weekend however, some of our party were disappointed in their rooms. The house would definitely sleep up to 10 people, but half of those people will get a very different sleeping experience. The 2 rooms in the front of the house are amazing. Beautifully furnished with lovely bedding, etc. These rooms will sleep 6 (with 2 people in a pull-out). The back of the house has a small room with 2 twin-beds and the walls do not reach all the way to ceiling. For the rest of your guests, there are 2 aero-bed mattresses that must be set up in the common/games room. This is where we put our teenagers. One mattress is deluxe ... the other is not.

Again ... we had a wonderful weekend and would probably reserve the house again. We were just surprised by the differences in the sleeping quarters.

I highly recommend this property. The location is convenient and not far from the Clinton ferry. We stayed with our extended family and the house comfortably fit 7 of us plus 3 kids. The closets were stocked with toys and board games. It has big windows and lets in lots of natural light so it was very pleasant and cozy to be waterfront for mornings and evenings. We even got some time to run around on the sand in front of the house during low tide. The master suite is huge! The kids had fun in the big jacuzzi bath. Other reviewers comment on the small kitchen but we didn't think it was too small at all - and it was stocked with all kinds of dishes, serving pieces and utensils. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed at the house for a week and had a great time. It is right on the beach and while we enjoyed the house, the beach is great to look at but the sand is soft and mucky and you sink down in unexpected places making it hard to enjoy a leisurely stroll. However, the neighbors are friendly, the bathrooms are clean and the beds are super comfortable. A few things to improve upon - the house smells a little musty, the bathroom rugs need a good washing and we would have loved more comfortable chairs on the deck to relax and watch the day go by. There are two chaises but with seven people, we would have appreciated a few more adirondack style chairs with ottomans. Not criticism - just a suggestion.

Location was great, good place for family reunion. Beautiful views and lovely beach fires in the evenings. This was advertised as a 3 bdrm 3 bath and while it is, the 3rd bedroom is really a child's room that is carved out of the billiard room and should be more formally disclosed, particularly as the walls to the room do not extend to the ceiling. Property managers and owners did not communicate and we were not able to stay at house the first night. Management did their best and refunded us for two full nights which was great. Management was GREAT!!! I would stay here again but with two couples and 2-4 children. We were 3 couples ranging from 60to75 years old.

Thank you for your review. We were very sorry about the reservation mix-up and worked with the owners as quickly as possible once the problem was brought to our attention. We love for people to come visit Whidbey Island and we're happy you had a great family reunion.

We had a wonderful time at the Bells Beach Getaway. It was perfect to relax, catch up with old friends and enjoy the beach. Well stocked house and great location. Would recommend this location to my friends.

This was the perfect house for a large group. We had ages ranging from 4 yrs. old to 83 yrs old. We enjoyed the beach, a couple brave souls actually went in the water. The kitchen was a bit difficult to navigate with our large group but it worked. Thank you so much for sharing your family home.

We were able to rent a beach house on Whidbey Island for our family. We're from UT and seeing green everywhere was breathtakingly beautiful. Our rental had big windows and a huge patio facing the Puget Sound to watch the tide come in & out. The home was nice and roomy. Grocery stores were not too far away. We enjoyed the restaurants in several towns as we explored the island. Our favorite was Joe's Wood Fired Pizza behind the Goose grocery store. We enjoyed our stay immensely!!

Great location close to Langley!! House has wonderful water view, but if you want to walk on the beach, collect shells or fly a kite this is not the place. When tide is out the beach is basically mud flats and you will sink down in it. Nice house but it has the smell of past smokers.

Manager's Response


All of our homes are absolutely non smoking and I have never noticed that smell at this home. Maybe wood smoke from the fire pit outside?
WE are of course, sorry these renters weren't happy with the beach. The house is almost constantly rented and with great reviews about the beach too.

Two families with came together for four days as this rental. We had four adults and five kids and we all had plenty of room and enjoyed our stay very much. The only advise I would give is that the grocery story in Langley is limited in some things so maybe go shopping before you come if you have certain things you want with you.

Manager's Response

So delighted these renters loved the house.
The great thing about it -- or just one of them--is that it is centrally located and about 12 minutes from both the Village of Langley and the town of Freeland. While the Star Store in Langley is on the small side, it is my personal favorite and has a fantastic beer, wine and spirits selection. In Bayview a short distance up the highway, there is the Goose community store, and in Freeland, the large Payless Grocery. So lots of options.
If you spend a day at Deception Pass (about 40 minutes north and highly recommended) you can always stop off at the Haggens , Safeway, or Walmart in Oak Harbor. We are in the process of updating Vacation Books for all of our homes which will list many of the local stores and restaurants for our vacationers to enjoy.

Beautiful location! At high tide, it feels as if the ocean is ready to come into the house. House is nice and comfortable. During low tide, it's great to walk along the beach!

This is the beach-house to rent if you have little kids, want an obstructed waterview and love, love, love to cook !

We were a group of 6 little kids (all below 7 yrs oldn ) and 6 adults. We had an awesome time! We were pleasantly surprised at how well-equipped the kitchen is and how there is a closet-full of toys for young kids. There are board games stashed and a pool table for the adults. If you forgot to bring books for bedtime reads, those are available too inside the coffee table.
The master bedroom is a enormous - so much bigger than the picture. Besides the king bed, there is enough space in the bedroom to put TWO more available queen-sized aerobeds back to back, with room to spare.

The only downside is 2 out of the 3 washrooms had no locks, so if you are ok with that it should be all fine. There is also no direct to the beach except for a rustic stack of rocks - so if you don't have a sure-foot or a bad ankle, it may be hard to go down to the beach when the tides are low. Having said that, all the little kids went down to the beach and had fun!

The property management company is a joy to work with and we are very happy with this rental. We are looking forward to come here again!

The view -

Manager's Response

Thank you for your feedback! A lock has been added to the 2nd bathroom and the 3rd bathroom lock is being added very soon! Our apologies go out for the inconvenience and thank you for bringing it to our attention.

We came in just as a big storm was hitting the area. The tides were very high the whole time we were there so we were unable to kayak but the weather did not dampen our experience! The house was great - what a view and to watch the wind blowing and white caps on the water and be tucked in our house with a nice fire going was very nice. Too bad we were not able to take advantage of the beautiful deck though. There were 6 of us and we had plenty of room to relax and we took advantage of the game room and played lots of pool and had a wonderful time. Property was very clean and well equipped! We did go into Langley and enjoyed a couple hours in town, even though it was raining. I have used VRBO's services several times before and each time, I am very pleased with this service and once again, my friends told me I had "hit the bulls eye" in choosing this place and will be in charge of our next "outing". And be assured that I will again go to VRBO for a place to stay! We all give you a big "5" for this property. Thank you.....

We arrived to find the house just like the pictures. The kitchen had everything we needed for meals, etc. The beds were comfy and the bathrooms were nice and updated. We loved the bath towels, I may have to update mine at home. The view from the living room was spectacular, saw great sunrises and sunsets. Great location to visit Langley, Freeland and Fort Casey. The property manager promptly texted us back regarding a wifi issue.

Beautiful location. Unobstructed views were fantastic. Comfortable beds. Extremely relaxlng. Two minor things. The Wi-Fi code did not work. No mention of how to access the beach. Would definitely recommend this property. Highly likely we will return.
