“Fabulous stay”

Reviewed 26 Mar 2015

With our two college daughters only overlapping a weekend of Spring Break, we needed a place close by that still felt like a get-away. This was perfect! We arrived in a windstorm that had the waves crashing on the deck! We were surrounded by the turbulence of nature, but safe and secure in the beautiful, spacious yet cozy home. There was a room for everything we could want to do. The weather cleared enough to give us teasing glimpses of the spectacular views from the back deck including the snow-capped Olympic mountains. Early morning found me on the front deck gazing at a story book view of a huge lake with a backdrop of moss covered farm houses and listening to the birds waking up. We had a different park to hike at everyday including the marshes of Joseph Whidbey, the beach of Deception pass and the old growth forest of Ebey. Oak Harbor allowed a morning stroll with all the resident dog walkers followed by Starbucks and even had a movie theatre showing all the new weekend releases. We filled our afternoons with touristy explorations of boutiques and restaurants in Langley and Coupeville. There was so much to do in March, we can't imagine what it would be like to visit in the summer. Can't wait to come back!

“Awesome Whidbey Cottage”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2015

From the moment we arrived, we knew we would have an exquisite stay. The cottage is beautifully furnished with an awesome kitchen. The view is to die for. We had an eagle come and sit on the beach within 20 feet of us and let us take pictures of him. The hot tub is soooo nice. Sleeping with the window open and hearing the gentle sound of crashing waves was so peaceful. You will love this place. We will be back.

“Girls Weekend”

Perfect. The home was beautiful and all the pictures matched the property exactly. Excellent place to relax. We mutually agreed we would use this property again. FYI-if planning on having an outdoor fire on the deck, they do not want it being used.

“Everything A Family Needed for A Great Beach Break”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2012

Our family (from 2yrs to 70) just had a wonderful two weeks at this property -- the best views on Whidbey's west side, the weather gave us glorious sunsets to admire from the ENORMOUS deck, and a lovely, spacious home that met all our needs. We were overwhelmed by the attention paid to comfort (great beds!) and decor -- there were treats for the eyes everywhere one looked in this home. Plenty of room for family meals both indoors and out on multiple tables, a hot tub our family used at night, with skies full of stars and the twinkling lights of towns on the Peninsula, the San Juans and Anacortes to the north. The kitchen allowed for multiple cooks, and was beautifully appointed, everything one could need for summer vacation cooking. Raves for the huge outdoor grill as well. One of the nicest features was the lovely fenced and grassy yard on the east side of the house, with views beyond of the marsh and all its feathered visitors. Lots of parking available off-street . The entire property is fenced, so is safe for little people. We saw eagles and heron every morning from the deck! All the amenities one could want for a great family vacation. Many thanks to our hosts for sharing this wonderful spot with us!

Owner's reply: Thanks for the wonderful write-up. You were great renters Cheers, Carolyn

“Perfect place to stay on Whidbey Island!!!”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2011

My family of 6, with 4 kids ranging in age from 4 to 13, stayed here for 8 nights. We had a delightful stay and the house was just perfect for us. From the gorgeous sunsets to the fantastic beach to the amazing, huge deck to the beautiful, comfortable house, everything was just as we had hoped... and even better! There were even eagles and blue herons on the beach right in front of us. All I can say is, if you are visiting Whidbey Island, there is no better place to stay than the Retreat at Sunset Beach!!

“Peaceful Rehab”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2011

We planned this trip 5 months in advance . Fly to an area of the country we'd never been before to spend some time with our son recently returned from Iraq and now stationed at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. The home was larger than 2 of us needed but we wanted nice ;spacious and water front .......we were certainly not disappointed. The appointments in the house were perfect in every way ; the views of the Straits from the master and living room were magnificent . Having coffee on the deck in the morning ;a glass of wine in the evening and clearly seeing the Olympic Mountain Range on several days was an added treat we did not expect . We were standing in the kitchen looking at the lake across the road and sitting on top of a pole was a huge Bald Eagle .......Im not making this up ! It was like an ever changing canvas that was constantly changing just for us . We did not close the windows in the Master during our 6 night stay as the sound of the surf was so soothing . Even though the house offered wireless internet connectivity and we had cell phone service ; we totally shut down for this week and it paid off . We were truly relaxed and because we had the space our son stayed with us each night . The owners were a real pleasure to work with and we were met at the house by a local contact that was as well extremely helpful . A week; a house and an atmosphere we will not forget Tom , Darden and Thomas Baker

We visited for the first time this beautiful home located RIGHT on the beach. It was absolutely amazing! Huge deck w/comfortable chairs (& firepit) overlooking views & relaxing sounds of the ocean, sealife, birds- including eagles & gorgeous sunsets. Easy access to the beach from the deck. Used the barbeque one night for dinner-it was nice having that option. The layout of the house is very nice & comfortable. The decor/ style & colors are beautiful. Loved it! Very cozy. Lots of windows to take in the sights & sounds. Also enjoyed the stereo/cd player in the living room. What a weekend- the best/warmest of the year. Such great timing. Calm, sunny days. What a treat for oceanfront & on the west side of the island. We will definitely be back again! Thank you so much for such a memorable experience. :)

“Didn't Want To Leave!”

Reviewed 3 Mar 2011

After a wonderful, long weekend, we really felt like we were leaving our own home and did not want to go! The accomodations for our family of 4 and a set of grandparents were perfect. Loved the extra family room downstairs, the views were magnificent and relaxing in the hot tub could not have been more breathtaking. Thank you for opening your beautiful place to us. P.S. The property manager, Jody was great too. Very nice and helpful. Also, the bottle of wine was a really nice surprise. Thank you for everything!
