Very Good

“Beautiful views”

Reviewed 19 Nov 2017

We had a wonderful stay. The house sits right on Penn Cove and enjoys spectacular views. Very clean, comfortable, and fully equipped with anything you can possibly imagine. We cooked every night and found the kitchen to have everything we needed for our gourmet meals. Highly recommend.

Response from the owner Thank you again for your visit, Gail, and for choosing us amongst the myriad of many options out there. We loved having you. You folks were wonderful Guests and we look forward to your return! -Julie and Peter

“Serene, cozy rental with beautiful water views and great accomod”

Reviewed 17 Nov 2013

I spent a truly wonderful weekend at Sandpiper Haven! I feel like I got the best of all it had to offer. The house is well kept and nicely laid out with many amenities. Many windows provide beautiful sweeping views of the water,across Penn Cove and to Camano Island. Convenient washer/dryer with detergent provided, full kitchen with nice touches included (spices, tea, popcorn and little thoughtful extras). All dishes and cooking utensils, pots and pans provided. The house sleeps 6 comfortably with 2 bedrooms and a comfortable pullout sleeper sofa. Here again, there are many nice and convenient extras such as makeup remover, shampoo/conditioner and soaps. Julie and Pete have really thought of everything that might make your stay that much nicer. Outside the landscaping is very well done. I enjoyed walking over the gravel path and around the house and checking out the well groomed yard. Parking for 3 cars available. There is a bbq grill and an outdoor firepit with wood included. The water is right at your doorstep for wonderful beach walks, kayaking and swimming or just exploring. Easy to navigate steps down to the beach make beach access simple. The location is quiet and serene, yet close enough to quaint Coupeville or larger Oak Harbor to enjoy many different styles of dining and shopping. I definitely recommend a stay at Sand Piper Haven and look forward to my next visit!

Response from the owner Dear Tania, Wow, you truly hit the nail on the head of all we are trying to achieve providing that home-away-from-home feeling. Makes your job, the Guests, much easier :). We started supplying all the wood for the outdoor firepit about a year ago so glad you liked that, too. And by all means come again! -Julie & Peter.

“Home away from home, but better!”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2013

This house has a gorgeous view of Penn Cove, we saw bald eagles on the dock, and watched them swoop over the house to their nests in view of the deck! A thrill. The open kitchen and great room floor plan made for easy socializing, while cooking and chatting, and relaxing on the comfortable couches. From the framed art to the hooks on the walls, this house is a vacation paradise, perfect to share for either a family fun getaway (next time for sure to enjoy the boat!) or a Moms' getaway retreat. Sandpiper Haven is one of the best vacation rental homes I've ever enjoyed. I'll be back for sure.

Response from the owner Dear Amy, We are so glad you had a wonderful relaxing time at our home and do come again - next time with the whole family. The boat and kayaks are available to Guests during Peak Months. -Julie & Peter

“Perfect in every detail!”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2013

Sandpiper Haven was truly a haven for myself and five other busy Moms who stayed there over a three day weekend! Not only was it neat, clean and absolutely darling, it was fully stocked with cooking ingredients and utensils, extra bedding, reading material, movies, bathroom necessities and anything you might need to make your stay comfortable. There is even a small flashlight hanging from the outdoor keypad in case guests arrive after dark! The owners have thought of everything! It is exceptionally well stocked. Our group planned elaborate meals and any ingredient we forgot (veg oil, butter, spices) was available in the kitchen! We had a great time walking the beach, enjoying the view, watching two bald eagles perched on the dock nearby and sitting by the stone fireplace chatting. Love the outdoor fireplace pit and the fragrant lavender plantings, too! I hope to come back with my family, because I know my kids will absolutely love the spot!

Response from the owner Dear Jen, It warms our heart to hear you had a great Girls Getaway at Sandpiper Haven and you have so nicely summarized what we strive to achieve - a Home-Away-From-Home so Guests can show and and immediately start enjoying :) Do come back with your family! Julie & Peter

“Perfect for our family vacation”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2013

We had a wonderful week at this well-equipped, clean and stylishly decorated home with a beautiful and peaceful view of the sea. Upon arrival, we were greeted with fresh flower and a bag of chocolate, what a nice and welcoming touch from the owners Julie and Peter! The beds are very comfortable, there are plenty of towels, beddings, dishes..etc for our family of 6 adults. Even though we had a few rainy days, we did enjoy strolling along the pebble beach, picking mussels and clams for dinners and watching the endless activities of the sea gulls from the deck. On our last day, we enjoyed an excellent dinner in Oak Harbor at Frasers Gourmet Hideaway, a perfect ending for our vacation. We highly recommend this house and we will definitely stay here again for our next visit to Whidbey Island.

Response from the owner Dear Richard and Wendy, Thank you so much for the kind words and we are so pleased you enjoyed yourselves and yes, please come again. You summed up what we really strive for - trying to provide a home away from home in a beautiful setting. Just show up and enjoy! All the best - Julie & Peter.

“Thank You ~!”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2013

Thank you very much for letting us stay at your lovely vacation home.. My family and I have rented many vacation homes but found that your home tops them all.. We have rented big ones and expensive ones but we were sooo surprised at all the little details you have put into making your guests feel most comfortable in your home... We will definitely go visit your vacation home again for a longer period, because our visit was too short for us to enjoy your home to the fullest~ Thank you again~

Response from the owner Dear Stephanie, We are so pleased your family had a wonderful and comfortable stay. Often Guests ask after they arrive if they can stay longer, so yes, plan a longer visit next time :) look forward to your future visit. -Julie & Peter

“Awesome Place and Great Owners!”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2013

Communication from the owners was very thorough. They even texted us on arrival day saying the house was ready earlier than planned. The house was immaculate. We've never seen so many amenities, or suggestions for local activities/dining provided for renters. The view from the deck is awesome. We saw a grey whale swimming up Penn Cove, and lots of birds including an eagle which landed on the beach not far away. This was our first time to Whidbey Island, and we will definitely return. Lots of great restaurants, parks and hiking trails, but we enjoyed our time hanging out at the house as much as anything.

Response from the owner Dear Chris, You are so fortunate to see the Gray Whales during your stay. They migrate March through April in these waters and it is such a joy to even get to see them off the deck at Sandpiper Haven. Glad you had a great stay. Come again. -Julie & Peter

“Perfect Beachfront Getaway!”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2013

Absolutely pristine and beautiful vacation rental! I had never rented a vacation home and was a little concerned about how it would, "really" be like. I was so happy to walk into a beautifully maintained, warm and welcoming home for our special weekend get away. The owners have really thought of everything! Not only is there a fully stocked kitchen, but there are extra toiletries in case you've forgotten them, games and toys for children, beach toys for kids...etc. I was absolutely impressed by the thought that the owners have put into every detail! The owners were also very easy to contact and quick to respond to any questions/emails/calls that I had.

Response from the owner Dear Maria, We are so glad you and your family had a nice stay and saw a great part of the NW. Thank you for capturing what is our goal at Sandpiper Haven - to provide a home away from home in a beautiful setting. Come again. -Julie & Peter

“Amazing view”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2013

First time at Sandpiper Haven and can't wait to come back. Very clean and has everything you need. Sitting on the back deck with wine in hand watching the boats and the mountains pure haven. Lots of beach are to walk or play. Nothing but beautiful

Response from the owner Dear Tammy & Kim, We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves and do come again! -Julie & Peter

“Absolutely amazing all around!!”

Reviewed 21 Nov 2012

This was my 1st time to Sandpiper Haven, what a joy it was. I had planned a girls weekend with a few of my highschool friends from 20 yrs ago just to relax, take time away from parenthood, work and just to enjoy eachother again. I couldn't think of a better place to do just that. We sat around the cozy fireplace just chit chatting about old times, cooked some food together in the kitchen which has everything we needed. The owners really thought of everything and it shows. The environment was spectacular and what a gorgeous view. It was cold & windy when we were there but that didn't stop us from going down to the water to get a few pictures (which is roughly 30 steps down from the back area). I would recommend Sandpiper Haven to anyone and we are already talking about making this an annual trip for us!

Response from the owner Hi Tara, We are pleased you and your friends had such a relaxing time and do book again. It is such a great year-round rental so no worries booking Off-Peak either :) -Julie & Peter
