We had our second stay at Marty's place with our extended family, children, grandchildren and grandparents. The house works so well with a group. Large kitchen with two dishwashers, dining room table to seat 14, several seating areas separate from the TV room , sweet little play area upstairs for children plus the beautiful porch to enjoy the view. The house is clean and well looked after, and one small problem we had on our stay was correctly very quickly. The owners have been very quick to respond via email both when booking and during the stay. There is so much to do at the house, from outside play in the huge grounds, to loads of boardgames to play inside. About a 15 minute walk from Langley which has lots of great restaurants, coffee shops, stores and wine shops. A very pretty little town. We love Whidbey Island and Marty's Place is a perfect place to stay for a visit.
This house is a great location for kids; the lake water was warm and they played for hours each day. The house is furnished nicely, but the "bones" of the residence is feeling its age. The "sinking" toilet in the master bathroom might be a little disconcerting if you are a heavy weight person. The house does get very warm during the summer. I hope the owners might purchase shorter pieces of wood to "lock" the sliding doors, but allow some air to circulate in the master bedroom at night. If you are interested in cooking (rather than eating out), I suggest bringing your own cooking oil, spices including S&P, and saran wrap/ziploc bags for your leftovers. There are plenty of dishes, silverware and glasses for a large group. Do your shopping in Freeland at the Payless and avoid the Red Apple market in Clinton, unless you need just a few things like milk. If we could, we would have stayed longer because it was pleasant.
