“Beautiful Weekend Getaway”
I rented this property for my family's first visit to Whidbey Island. The home was clean, cozy and comfortable. The full kitchen and living spaces on both levels was a big plus. Karen, of Tara Vacation Rentals, was very professional and knowledgeable of the property and more than helpful throughout the entire rental process. Would recommend the property to anyone looking to spend a vacation on the island.
“Quaint and comfortable”
The view was the best feature, along with the fact that there were 2 living areas with their own kitchen and bath. Everything worked and the house was clean and in good repair. The only downside was that there was no dishwasher, and my husband and daughter aren't big on helping in that department lol - so if there were more than 3 of us staying it could have been an issue. Otherwise, we had peace, quiet and privacy. The only visitors we had were some playful deer and a family of quail who came by in the evenings as we had our coffee on the deck. Would definitely stay again.
“Great location. A few bumps in the road”
The location of the house was perfect. The view lovely. The house was clean. The deck comfortable and the neighborhood very quiet. The weather PERFECT. I had to call just days before our stay as for some reason our contract we had sent two months earlier was not on file and that gave us a bit of a heart stopping moment as we were coming in for a wedding. The situation was quickly taken care of by Karen. Some things in the house were worn around the edges. The dresser in the downstairs closet did not open. The track lights in the downstairs bedroom did not work. There could be more lighting in the living room downstairs as it is a bit dark. We did not try the Dvd or TV downstairs because being outside was far more fun. There is a stove downstairs but none upstairs where the bigger dining area is located. The downstairs mattress needs to be changed as it is very soft but then some folks may prefer that type of mattress. Everything was clean but the bedding is worn. When we arrived at the house there was no key in the box and we were unable to let ourselves into the property. We had to go to a prenuptial dinner wearing clothes we had traveled in and were unable to clean up prior to the dinner which made us unhappy. We had trouble getting in touch with someone to resolve the key issue but the manager went to great lengths to correct the problem once she became aware of it and we were able to get into the property by 10:30pm. We stayed three days, not four but did have to pay for four as a minimum which is understandable given the popularity of the island. I did receive an email after our visit asking if we had taken towels which of course we had not so I would recommend pictures when you get there and when you leave to be sure no misunderstandings develop. I would stay there again and would recommend the place to anyone.
I live near by so we rented this home to accommodate family flying in for the wedding. The location was PERFECT for us and I'm so jealous of the view. The only major complaint would be the appearance of the front yard. The walkway to the front door is kind of dangerous and uneven with bushes sticking out making it difficult to move around, especially for the elderly. The stairs leading into the home and going downstairs from the inside are not very safe either. Definitely not a home for the elderly or people with disabilities. The front yard needs some serious attention. Inside it was much roomier than expected and fully stocked. Weird that the oven is downstairs with an apartment size fridge. The oven and regular fridge should both be upstairs. Going up and down the stairs to use the oven was inconvenient. The deck is nice a spacious with a view to die for. The deck needs to be updated as we found parts of it coming apart. GREAT experience. The neighbors are wonderful... ;) and the neighborhood quiet and beautiful. I would rent again for family events.
Response from the manager We would like to thank this renter for bringing to our attention the needed deck repair and we promptly fixed the deck after they notified us. We would also like to clarify that this home has kitchen, living, dining room, bedroom and bathroom located on each floor. Each floor also has separate outdoor entrances. The downstairs entrance does not have any stairs for someone that might have difficulty with stairs. There is a stove in the upstairs kitchen, just not an oven. The downstairs kitchen does provide a full sized oven :)
Overall this house was clean and well stocked. They have plenty of seating, good towels and linens, games for all ages, movies to watch, and books to read. The location is walking distance to a beach though the directions could be rewritten. It has two kitchens, which I did not realize until we arrived. Didn't matter to us but other people might need two. The only problems we encountered was the oven in the lower kitchen did not work and electrical issues where outlets either didn't work or the plug ins would not stay in them. The rental company did not seem to be aware of this problem and called promptly when we reported them. Hopefully they will fix them before it is rented again. The location was very nice, had a great view, and we enjoyed the deer that came to visit every day. Overall we had a good stay and would return as long as the problems had been resolved.
Response from the manager Our apologies to this renter for the difficulties they had with the electrical outlets and oven. We have replaced the outlets so that plug ins will stay firmly in place. Thank you for bringing it to our attention!
A perfect location to explore Whidbey from Deception Pass to Langley! Location had privacy, a fabulous view, a wonderful yard for the kids and a fun beach to explore. Everyone wanted to stay longer!
“Perfect for two families!!!”
Fantastic time....Great location...Management VERY accomodating!!! Thanks!
Awesome stay! Only problem was that our shower water became cold quickly since we had a large party, but other than that - great place!
Response from the manager Water heater is standard, but having 6 adults shower simultaneous can overwhelm most hot water heaters. Our apologies to these renters for that inconvenience, and also happy they had a great overall stay!
“Property ok, but some problems”
We enjoyed the amazing sunrises but were disappointed becasue the oven didn't work and we didn't get any response when we called. Also, some furniture was in poor condition.
“Peace and Quiet on Whidbey Island”
we had a very relaxing stay in this peaceful spot. We would have appreciated a bit of light at the front of the home as we arrived at night. There was reference to wifi in the materials, but it was not operational.
Response from the manager Apologies to this renter for not having the porch light on at the time of their late arrival! Owner has since installed a motions sensor light in the front for latecomers. The owner has also now replaced the faulty internet router :) We are so sorry we were not aware it was not working prior!
