vacation rental description

This large, comfortable "backbeach" house is what summer's all about: swimming pool, tennis, beach, family, fun. Sailors' End is situated on the culdesac at the end of the road--set back from the beachfront--where kids can play in the huge yard or bike the small community while you relax on the deck. Up the road, the private community swimming pool is warm and welcoming with tennis next door. Down the road (~5 min stroll) is the community's private beach access to the golden sand of Mutiny Bay--SW-facing and great for beachcombing, beach fires, and building castles and forts, a favorite local kids' pasttime. Sailors' End borders a nature preserve where you'll hear the croaking of frogs at twilight, and see rabbits, deer, bald eagles, osprey, and, at night, STARS!

The upstairs living area is spacious and airy with sky lights and an open floorplan facing partial views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. It's been recently remodeled with new windows, doors, and bamboo flooring--clean and fresh. Master bedroom has king bed; second upstairs bedroom has double. All bedrooms have down comforters and pillows (non-down options available). Kitchen has that comfortable beach feel--large & functional, not fussy or fancy--and is laid out well for multiple chefs, and stocked with plenty of everything for large groups. Open floorplan with eating bar is great for socializing; artistic touches add whimsy and style.

If you've got friends or kids joining you, you'll make use of the lower level with its huge light & bright family room--DVD player, board games, toys, and fireplace. Also two more bedrooms (queen + twin, and full + twin) and laundry room. Ping pong table in the carport! Cornhole (bean bag toss) for the deck or yard! Plenty of space for folks to gather together and play or chat, or curl up alone for a little down time.

We're a short drive--or bike ride!--to Freeland's excellent grocery store, Langley's antique shops, and South Whidbey State Park's old-growth hiking trails. Large backyard has apple tree and swing, and beckons for wiffle ball, croquet, or bocce ball. Sailors' End is the kind of beach house you remember from your childhood--not fussy or fancy--but clean, bright, comfortable, well-appointed, and a great place for relaxation and fun.

traveler reviews for this whidbey island house rental

Attending Wedding / Vacation

Review submitted: August 27, 2013   Date of arrival: August 9, 2013

We were very pleased with the home. There were plenty of room and could easily sleep 10 in very comfortable beds -- and still have a futon, and 3 couches that could be utilized!! I cannot stress the beds enough! Kitchen well stocked with plenty of dishes/pots and pans, etc. Also, ice cream maker, blender, expresso machine, plus more! Great water pressure for showers too!

The home is like your home. Very comfortable and you can relax in it. It has a couple of things that need upgrading but you can see that upgrading has been happening. Deer were abundant -- be careful driving -- they just stroll. Rabbits are often seen out the window on the stair landing also.

All and all, I would recommend and would revisit and stay again at this home.

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing

Owners response: Yes, upgrading has continued! Since this review, we've improved the view (with major tree trimming), improved the deck (new railing), installed new bamboo flooring downstairs (it was already upstairs), and installed a new oven/stove.

People always comment on how comfy our beds are--I think it's because we have down comforters and pillows on every bed. In fact, most are from a local NW company called Pacific Coast Feather--their stuff is the best. For folks with down allergies, we have non-down alternatives in the linen closet.

This reviewer mentions an ice cream maker and espresso machine--unfortunately those died, apparently too many bells and whistles for a rental. :( On the bright side, for summer 2014, we've opened up access to the community pool and tennis court to our guests. And of course there's always the awesome beach just 5 min walk away.

Even better than hoped for!

Review submitted: March 24, 2013   Date of arrival: March 15, 2013

We had a great time! The house is beautiful inside and the layout was wonderful for a group. The kids weren't sure what they were going to do without wi-fi and video games but quickly found many wonderful things to do. We all loved the large window on the stairwell looking out over the back yard. Lots of bunnies and quail to spy on. The bedrooms and beds were beautiful and very comfortable. Ping pong was a big hit and we had to limit the morning start time so the whole group wasn't woken when the 11yo wanted to start a game at 8am! We also made good use of the games and cards and my 9yo daughter decided to start the Twilight series when she found the book in the bookshelf. She made it to page 59 before we left and was very proud of herself! The grill worked wonderfully and we had the best steak dinner in awhile. We loved the beach and even though there was snow on the North side of the island the beach temp was mild and we all went barefoot in March and stayed warm!

Overall it was a lovely time and I hope we can come again this year!

Wonderful Getaway

Review submitted: November 5, 2011   Date of arrival: October 7, 2011

What a wonderful place to get away to. We enjoyed the spaciousness of the home and its welcoming feel. Our large group fit just right. There's a nice variety of books and games. The ping pong tournaments downstairs were lively and fun. We enjoyed the location as it was close to beach, shopping and state parks. Janna is very responsive and easy to get a hold of. We highly recommend this vacation rental!
