The home is well cared for with plenty of amenities. The weather was unfortunately rainy and windy most of our stay, preventing full enjoyment. I would encourage that more on-site information be furnished, such as wireless connection, TV, ETC..
Perfect lake house
Reviewed On 08/04/2016

Nice house. Has everything you would need for a comfortable stay. Access to private beach, tennis court, basketball court. Had tons of water toys including a kayak to use. Everyone had something fun to do and we all loved it. Definitely recommend it!
Camano Beach House
Reviewed On 11/01/2016

Beach location provides great views and access to wildlife sanctuary is a short walk away. The location is quiet and surrounded by private properties so not crowded with day trippers. The house itself is small and "basic"...originally built without central heating so you have to rely on space heaters and the gas fired fireplace in the living room...all of which work nicely once you figure things out. I had a blown fuse issue when running the dryer but once replaced was fine.
Quaint cottage at the sea
Reviewed On 10/05/2016

This house was just what we were looking for at first glance. We took our two little ones (toddler and 10 month old) and had a blast. There are logs cut to step size so you can climb over the retaining wall and to the sandy beach area and play. If it were just my husband and I this place would have been perfect. We had a few issues though. The insulation is poor and while they provide heaters the electrical can't actually run the heaters without blowing the breaker. Three heaters were provided and we knew to only try plugging in two, the breaker blew after 10 minutes of two heaters running. We tried plugging in one heater and a fan to blow the heat and the breaker blew as well after 10 minutes. 2/3 of the house including the fridge is on the same breaker. And this breaker box is very old, I have never seen one like it. Fuses have to be replaced every time the breaker blows. We went through two and then decided to only try one heater in the main room with no fan and we were fine. We unplugged every other electronic and light we could to do so though. We called Turnkey Rentals who managed the property and they said they would have someone come out after we left but as I am not sure how the issue was resolved I wanted to make this issue known. We didn't run a heater all night for fear of the breaker blowing and the fridge going out as well and losing all the food we had for our kiddos and the kiddos were quite chilly but amazingly managed to sleep. It's a bummer they both are too young to really keep blankets on while they sleep. Also the fridge plug is in is finicky. If the fridge is bumped wrong it turns off. The plug can't totally be pushed in or it doesn't work, has to be slightly pulled out. There was a converter plug thing to change the three pronged plug in to a two pronged plug as there are no three pronged plug in the whole house that we could find. Sorry for the novel. Long story short. Don't stay here in cold weather unless you can confirm the electrical issues have been fixed or you will be mighty cold. There is a wood burning fire place but the bedrooms would still be really cold. The view is gorgeous, the beds are comfy, and the house warms up well by mid day.
Not Quite as Described
Reviewed On 08/09/2016

What you can't see in the main photo is that the deck is all the outdoor space you get. This is the front unit of a duplex and the rear longterm rental has the back yard with lawn and beautiful trees. We missed the fact that this was a duplex cottage when we read the description (our fault), but the word "duplex" was used only once. It should be in the title of the listing. Also needed is a better description of the way the property is laid out. This deck does have trees on two sides, but overlooks the carport and garbage cans on the third. The only rear-facing window overlooks the deck of the rear unit. The renters of that unit use their deck throughout the day to smoke and if our window was open, their smoke drifted into our unit. We had to either close our window and curtains or watch their smoking and comings and goings. Likewise, we felt they could see us. Not much privacy! The day prior to our arrival, we received an email stating that the unit would be available at noon. When we arrived at 2PM, the front door was wide open, 3 bags of garbage were next to it and the cleaning person was still there. She’d been given a 3PM deadline. We had to call Turn-Key 4 times during our stay: 1. To get a new front door lock numerical code the day we arrived because the one we’d been given didn’t work. Luckily, someone was there who could give us a new code immediately; we also needed a new wifi code. 2. To report that although the listing had said that there was a dishwasher, there was none. It’s been removed from the listing and we were issued a credit. 3. To find out about access to Deer Lake. When we took the 6 minute walk to the lake, we found a gated fence with a sign saying “Members Only.” The agent had no information on this and asked, “Isn’t it in your binder?” But there was no information binder in the house. The agent called the owner who said that we could go through the gate, but we had wasted a morning of our vacation. 4. To find out how to work the TV. There were no instructions on the system and we could never figure out how to get any channels at all. All we could get were some rebroadcasts. The Turn-Key agent told us that she would call us back on this, but never did. The unit itself is fine, certainly not chic, but clean and spacious enough for two people. It could use, however, a black-out shade in the bedroom, decent cookware, and a binder with complete information on the house, local restaurants, etc.
Frustrating

On the positive side, the property is recently remodeled, clean, and furnished with bright Ikea-style furniture. But our stay here was frustrating from the very beginning. We could not get into the house with the numerical password that was provided, and it took several hours to get a telephone response from the 24/7 property management company. We had just moved out of our house that day, and we were exhausted, looking forward to a shower and some TV. When we finally got into the property, there was a funky "off-gassing" smell, and we weren't able to access the TV because there was no cable and no guide to explain how to use the remotes. The bathroom is nice, but the washer/dryer stackable unit is old and rusted, and we weren't able to do laundry during our stay because the washer made a loud banging noise. Our biggest complaint, however, was the lack of privacy and the noise. This cabin is not "in the trees," but rather a duplex with a large window that looks onto the other unit's deck. It's located in a busy neighborhood, and we had to keep the curtains closed the whole time we were there. We heard conversations just outside our kitchen and snoring through the closet wall. All that being said, the property served our purposes as a temporary home away from home at a reasonable price on an island where rentals are hard to come by.
Great beach cottage weekend getaway
Reviewed On 01/18/2017

This cottage was awesome, and my family (me, wife, and 3 yo) all really enjoyed our 3 day weekend stay over MLK weekend. It is small and cozy, but pretty well stocked kitchen so we were able to make meals whenever we wanted to eat in. Master bedroom bed was very comfy. Full size washer and dryer was really nice to have. Really enjoyed seeing the water out the windows, and the beach was about 30 seconds out the front door. Lots of games and some toys that my kid really enjoyed playing with. WiFi works well. A couple nitpicks: couch was really uncomfortable, felt like there were way too many decorative pillows for such a cozy/small space, not much hot water so you have to shower quick, and don't even think about using hot water for two things at the same time. All in all, we all thoroughly enjoyed our cold January weekend getaway at this cottage, and plan to return in the summer during warmer weather!
Camping alternative - Cozy little cabin
Reviewed On 01/04/2017

My wife and I stayed here a couple times during the summer and it was amazing! The sunsets were so beautiful, and the beach is very private and never crowded. I think we saw maybe 2 other couples while we were there. Check the tide schedule for when the tide is out/in, the water does get warm enough to swim in but sometimes the tide isn't in until the evening. During low tide you can walk out in the mud. The cabin is small but has everything you need (kitchen, shower/bathroom, 2 beds, Wi-Fi, and Netflix), and it's been recently remodeled. Stanwood is a quick drive if you need groceries, restaurants/bars, Starbucks, etc. There is also Llama farm down the road if you're interested in that, they do tours on most weekends. Camano Island is a slice of heaven!
Beautiful Beachfront Home
Reviewed On 01/03/2017

We booked the Beach and Blvd bungalow for New Years Eve weekend and had an absolutely wonderful time. The home boasts large oceanfront windows and is tastefully decorated to accentuate the space. We loved being just a few steps away from the beach and enjoyed many long walks seacombing and bird watching. Another bonus is the ROKU TV system, which allows you to use Hulu, Netflix or stream music stations on Pandora while you are relaxing in front of the fire, which we did Saturday evening watching the snow fall. Beds are very comfortable :) We will most certainly be back!
