Gîte de charme, gai, et privé de deux chambres se trouve juste sur Holmes Harbor. La chambre principale a un lit king size; dort le dortoir de l'enfant quatre. Profitez de votre café du matin sur l'est face à pont avec des vues spectaculaires sur le port, et passer vos soirées autour du foyer rôtir des hot-dogs et des guimauves. La grande cour avant est entouré par une haie de photinia, ce qui rend la propriété très privée. Il y a aussi un verger avec huit arbres fruitiers. Les cuisiniers seront ravis de la cuisine bien équipée. Profitez de la générosité de la mer avec des moules abondantes et palourdes au large de la plage. Il y a tant de merveilles simples pour vous divertir sur la propriété qu'il est parfois difficile de sortir pour découvrir le reste de l'île!

Best Location, Wonderful Property!
We enjoyed this property from July 23 to September 1, 2018. We can’t possibly describe how wonderful our stay was, so I will just hit the highlights. First, the house itself is a beautifully restored small home with bright colors, very tasteful art & excellent furniture. The kitchen is just amazing! Although on the small size, the appliances are top of the line. The surprising thing is that everything imaginable a good chef might need is behind the cabinet doors in multiple numbers and there is enough silverware and dishes to accommodate at least 12. The beds are comfortable although the bunkbeds are a challenge to make. The washer and dryer are Bosh and practically new. You will not want for a single thing.
Secondly, the location is arguably the very best on the Island. At the foot of Holmes Harbor the water is protected and generally like a mirror in the mornings. The Harbor Seals come by to say hello every morning, the same Great Blue Heron visits every day to fish for breakfast in the shallow water and birds of all kinds provide great watching. A doe and two fawns were in our yard almost every morning. A half mile away at the foot of the bay is Nichols Brothers Shipbuilding is just amazing to watch. We witnessed several launchings and retrievals across the beach. On 9/10 they will launch a 100 passenger cruise ship for National Geographic. There are four good restaurants, the Charmer’s Bistro crab benedict is to die for, Freeland Café does a nice breakfast and the China Kitchen is surprisingly good. Gordon’s, only 3 minutes away is excellent.
The South end of the Island is the most beautiful and interesting part of Whidbey. Many artists, frequent entertainment, and a number of wineries. We particularly liked the Spoiled Dog. The town of Freeland is less than 5 minutes away and has all the facilities you need. We made frequent use of the very nice athletic club only 4 minutes away.
Saving the best for last, I must comment on the beach at the house as this was the best clam digging beach we have ever been on in out lives. In 5 minutes you can have enough clams for a big batch of Chowder and Clams Casino.
All in all, our stay was nothing short of a 5 star experience.
It was a great spot. Access to the private beach when the tide is out was great! Comfortable house with everything you might need. Thanks for the fun stay!
My husband and I took our two dogs here for a short weekend and loved our stay. The view of the water, the location and access to the beach really made the trip. The house is very well maintained, clean, and had everything needed to prepare meals, including a charcoal BBQ. We hope to stay here again. Thank you, Kara!
Loved it, perfect little getaway for our family
Cute little cottage with everything you would need for a relaxing weekend getaway. Loved the beach out front, my girls had so much fun catching and releasing tiny crabs, and also harvesting fresh mussels for dinner. Would have given it 5 stars but the kitchen was a little small and dated since I like to cook but overall will definitely be back for more. Thanks Kara for being super responsive to all my questions and being so helpful.
Great spot. Clean and comfortable
We needed to extend our stay at the last minute. The owner was very accommodating. We would definitely rent this spot again on our next visit.
Perfect for our family
We stayed a long weekend for a wedding on Whidbey. Couldn't be happier with our stay and communication with Rachel prior to arrival. Cozy accommodations while plenty of room for our family of 4. Full of Hygge!
