“started out rough but ended up lovely”
We arrived late in the afternoon and the cottage was not clean, beds weren't made, laundry was in the shower, no spare key, and we couldn't get immediately ahold of anyone. In a couple hours this was sorted out, but was not a good first impression. BUT the place was lovely, location great, weather perfect, and we had a wonderful time.
Bit of a chore just to get in touch with someone for rental details. Wasn't impressed with the $90 "checkout" fee that was not included in the advertised rate. Hot tub was not clean when we arrived, and would not heat up for the first day. Old load of laundry in the washing machine that smelled musty. Were not given the password for the advertised wi-fi. Website also says there is a phone, but phone disconnected. i
Played telephone tag trying to make contact with someone from the get go. Hot tub didn't work for the first day. No dishwasher. Not given the password for the advertised wi-fi. Charged a $90 "checkout" fee. Assume that meant for cleaning after we left. Only problem was that we were required to do most of the cleaning ourselves. Went to do the obligatory load of towels before leaving and found a load already in the washing machine. Judging by the smell,it had apparently been there for quite some time.Lots of water? stains in the carpet.All in all very unprofessional. Won't be using them again.
“Home Away From Home”
We spent 6 days in this cottage at the end of August 2012. We are the family of three adults and love to be close to water and nature, but appreciate luxury of a city life. This place perfectly match our criteria and expectations. Location is great: being on an island and being in close proximity to all the points of interest was exceptional. The cottage located on a high beach shore and provides remarkable view on a cove. Seals came to greet us every morning and we never heard our neighbours during our stay, so this is a pretty secluded location. The old world style decor of a cottage creates great atmosphere. Bedrooms are big and mattresses are super comfortable. Property management was in permanent contact with us and was very responsive. There were not any problems with the place. The hot tub was not in use at that time and maintenance fee was reimbursed immediately. hot tub was at the bottom of our "must have" list, so we did not really care about having it. Internet and TV worked perfectly well and we were able to plan our days after quick Internet search and visit number of places easily from this location. Kitchen is well stocked and convenient for cooking. Overall, that was a very comfortable leaving space and we rate it high in our long list of rented cottages in both the USA and Canada.
“Great Place to Stay”
My Uncle passed away recently and my Aunt and I needed a place to stay for a week. I booked this location and it was great. It meet all of our needs. If we had to book a hotel we would had spent a lot more money. We each had our own bedroom and bath. We we able to enjoy the luxury of a home with a beautiful view. With all the planning and arranging we had to do this place met all of our needs. We will need to come back to do some work with the estate and we hope to book this same place again. There is a wonderful hotel with a restaurant a short walk down the road with great food and lemon drops. Our cottage was clean, quiet and very comfortable. Our overall experience was very satisfied. We had only one very small problem with the toilet in one of the baths. (very minor) Very happy with the location. The place was clean. The Property management was very nice and attentive. If anyone is looking for the perfect place on Whidbey Island I would highly recommend this cute little cottage.
Stayed here with some buddies before one moved across the country. The cabin was really comfortable and the beds were great. The pictures don't the kitchen but it's very usable. Frig is small, about half normal size, but bigger was not really needed and stores are super close. It was nice having Coupeville so close for exploring. The only disappointment was that the hot tub had some trouble and never managed to get hot. Stayed about 60 degrees despite all our attempts to increase heat. The controls were basically an on-off switch and temperature dial so there wasn't much to screw up. Suspect heating element was failing. Not being able to use the hot tub was unfortunate since that was a draw, but none the less we enjoyed our stay
Response from the manager Our extreme apologies go out to this guest for the hot tub issues. Apparantly the only problem with the hot tub was the reset switch had been turned off on accident. Our new hot tub maintenance person did not realize it was off, but is now aware of that feature of this hot tub and will be double checking it at every cleaning. The hot tub did re-heat after this and has been working great since.
“trim hedges which block view, replace or clean picnic table,”
great hot tub, need baking pans, nice bedrooms and bathrooms, toilet in 2nd bathroom runs and needs fixing, need screen door esp when cooking to get more air.coupeville is great location with lots to do.
Problems with cat or raccoon smell and dirty couch. Inaccurate information provided and management was unhelpful. The place could be amazing with more attention paid to customers concerns. Location and structure are wonderful.
We only used it once a day or so, but it was really nice to end the day in our own hot tub. The only problem we had when we got their was a slight fishy odor which was coming from the frig, which had been turned off for a while and had lots of water in it. Also, the coffee pot had old coffee left in it, growing mold on it. These were oversights in cleaning and the manager promptly refunded $45 of our cleaning fee. Otherwise our stay was wonderful.
“Review of Tara Properties”
The house was a major disappointment as was the dealing with the property manager. The house stunk like dog or cat urine. Obviously an animal had lived there and the carpets have never been cleaned. The baseboard heaters in the main living space (kitchen, dining room, living room) did not work. The only source of heat was a fake log in the fireplace. We tried calling the maintenance emergency line several times over 3 days to get it fixed but no one responded. The hot tub was disgusting - it made my skin crawl just looking at it. I will not use Tara Properties again and I certainly will tell everyone I know not to.
