Gorgeous Retreat on Whidbey

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a few friends for a night away from Seattle and it was peaceful and wonderful. The house was spacious and in spotless condition. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck and watching all of the bunnies pass by (fun fact: there are lots and lots of bunnies everywhere on Whidbey!). We loved our stay and would absolutely return.

Too difficult to coordinate with the owner

  • 1 of 5

The property was acceptable and the owner was mostly cordial, but I had a lot of difficulty trying to coordinate with her.

The first issue was how she handled reducing my number of booked guests. I asked her if I could reduce my guest count from 5 to 3, and she emailed a response saying that in order to revise my booking, I would need to bring cash instead. I asked if I could paypal / venmo her, or bring a check, but she said she just wanted cash.

One of the main reasons I use this site is because of how many things are handled automatically, including the payment process. I had an incredibly busy weekend already planned, and I wasn't looking to add yet another errand into my schedule.

The second issue was the owner setting a specific time to get the key. This sounded fine initially, but most of my travel time had been allocated to getting people from airport, stopping for last minute supplies, and getting people to their rentals, so the prospect of agreeing to the appointment felt a little shaky initially.

What I failed to estimate though, was the ferry issue. Because your arrival to this property is gated by ferry travel, it's not a good idea to lock an appointment time to meet the owner. Because depending on traffic, you could be waiting in the ferry queue from anywhere between 30 minutes to 2+ hours before you actually get onto a boat, and you have no control over that.

And just like the demand for a cash payment, the idea of meeting at a specific time for a key hand-off runs contrary to every other property owner I've worked with on this site. The entire point of VRBO is to create a quick and painless rental experience for both parties, but just getting through this property's front door was a hassle.

Given how many things I was already managing and coordinating for the weekend, having to spend extra energy constantly texting and talking with the owner throughout the day was a damper on my rental experience. I honestly considered just eating my initial payment as a loss, and go with a hotel instead, but with such short notice, there wasn't much availability where we needed - so I had to stay with this property.

In summary, the property was fine, and the owner was mostly cordial (though she got frustrated with how late in the day I was able to get my cash to her), but overall, considering how difficult it was to just get your foot in the door here, I can't recommend renting here. Virtually any other owner will be easier to work w/

We loved our time at the house!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at Sunlight House. It was very relaxing to sit on the deck with a glass of wine before going to dinner. We loved walking on the beach and the view out the living room was incredible.

Overall great place!

  • 4 of 5

We had a relaxing get away in Sunlight House and would consider booking it again in the future.

The best part is the amazing view from the deck!

Christina met us at check in and went over the house and the rules.

Note that the address was wrong on the original VRBO page and was hard for some of our friends to find.
