MUTINY BAY WEEKEND
A guest from Burlington, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2016 We found this house to be the perfect layout for our group of eight: two teenagers, one 11 year old, and the rest adults. Especially enjoyed the two kitchens. Also liked the tame deer, owls, and other wildlife.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tara Property Management South We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your review!
Michael B. from Maple valley, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2015 The house we had was perfect for our large family vacation with 3 generations of family coming. We kept busy up there, mainly crabbing along Whidbey Island's eastern shore.
Reviewed by: Don F. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 The location was great and the home was very spacious. Loved having the spacious upstairs deck to relax on. Great views of the Sound through the trees. Very quiet and peaceful. The upstairs kitchen really wasn't stocked at all, though there was a bit more downstairs. The water pressure in the entire house was not great, including the kitchen sink. I think the house overall could use some updating, but it was about as expected price wise for the condition.
A guest from Blaine, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 This is a great vacation property for a large group. We did find some spiders making webs and in the beds but other than that it was clean. The path to the beach is not good - made for goats and needs some upkeep. Pots and pans could use an update for the price of the rental. No fire pit - that is a shame for a beach cabin.
Janice M. from Edmond, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 Had a very good time overall. Great location and scenery. Plenty of space for everyone. Very nice setting. Secluded and fairly private. Kids had a great time playing around the property. Perfect amount of space for 2 families to not step on each other's toes. View from the downstairs living room is spectacular and could sit there looking out for hours. Although I don't feel any of the below observations lowered the quality of our stay, or were worth complaining about, but I feel you might want to be aware of them, since you are asking for feedback: 1. toilet flush handles were loose and fell off frequently. 2. The downstairs portion of the house had a dank, moldy, not so fresh smell. Ceiling fans would help alleviate this I believe. 3. water leek above master downstairs bedroom causing mold and rot on the ceiling. 4.some light fixtures /bulbs broken or damaged. 5. putrid fish smell in kitchen downstairs upon our arrival. 6. House was not fully stocked with Toilet paper and Paper towels. Also the propane tank for the BBQ was empty. 7. Not much in the way of kitchen/cooking equipment. The one thing that did lower the quality of our stay was the lack of internet. I was planning on working from the house but ended up needing to drive to Langley to get work done. Tara management did an excellent job trying to help us with this, and I understand they are sending us a refund for the internet we did not have available to us. Very nice and easy to deal with.
Reviewed by: Rachel S. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2014 This place was perfect for my 6 friends and I. We all had a room to sleep in, and we were able to all get together and socialize in the living area downstairs. We didn't even use the upstairs kitchen and patio, even though it had spectacular views. The only things I didn't like were the 11 am check out time, the room that everyone had to walk through to get to the downstairs living room, and a few spiders. These were minor issues, but this place overall was awesome. We will be coming back!
Great location and view, dated and dirty property.
David N. from Fort Collins, CO does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 Other then dated and dirty you would think in a place that see's as much rain as the north west does, that the parking and path leading to the property would at least be covered in rock as not to be muddy and slick. There were no screens on the windows and this was a problem because the house smelled so musty the windows needed to be open to combat the smell but with the windows open the bugs then had free reign of the house. Allot of small things added up to a subpar experience.
Louise P. from Wooster, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013 It's a terrific place for a family gathering, especially the downstairs with its large room and great views. Kitchen could be better stocked, but that's minor. We would stay there again.
Gina H. from Renton, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 We had a large group and rented both the large house and cabin. Great to have the homes share the same property, yet there was total privacy between them. The decks on front of homes both had terrific views. We especially liked watching the freighters and Clipper go by. Access to beach was quick, but a little steep and narrow. Not bad for the average person. Half the beds were in terrible shape, the other half were great. Some maintenance issues w/the large house and there's nothing fancy about these places. Upstairs kitchen was not really functional, which was disappointing! Overall, we had a great stay though and would probably come back again. Property management company was great to work with and properties were very clean.
A guest from American Fork, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2013 Went to go on the beach (that they had just had a big party on the night before) and was told we couldn't because of the wild life they were trying to save. I understand that but there was a section roped off just for that. So just kind of bummed about that.
Ashley B. from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 the rental property was perfectly nice, about on par with what I expect from a rental house. everything was clean, they had good knives (always a plus). It was listed as 4 bedrooms, which may be a strech--it has 3 bedrooms, and 3 living areas with bed/pull out options. The greatest part was the amazing view above the bluff. But I would make sure that visitors know that the path to the beach is pretty treachorous, not great for older folks.
A guest from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 All was fine with the exception of the front door , where the lock was dysfunctional and the clothes washer was broken......location was ideal and everyone ahd a wonderful time.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tara Properties Inc. Apologies to the renters about the lock. Since has been fixed! Washing machine is also brand new, but had some issues after install and has been resolved.
Donna P. from Palo Alto, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2012 This is a very interesting house that would work well for larger parties or multiple families. We arrived about 20 minutes earlier than check in to find the housekeeper still there and vacuuming. He was very accomodating and let us in and told us he'd be gone shortly. Before leaving he told us the drain in the bathroom was backed up and he'd called the management company. The management company took care of the drain problem quickly and efficiently.The deck and view were spectacular. Watching the ships on the Admiralty Inlet was the highlight of our visit. Unfortunately other things while not major just weren't so good. 1. The lock on the front door didn't work. You could easily just push the door open from the outside. It took about 20 minutes to figure out that you had to slam the door closed, jiggle the knob until it clicked, lock it from the inside and go out from a different door in the house. 2. As you entered the house there was a downstairs window that was absolutely filled with dead bugs. 3. The dishwasher upstairs was dirty all down the sides and on the top of the dishwasher. 4. There were dead bugs in the window slides and the windows were all dirty. 5. We were told the upstairs stove didn't work and to use the downstairs one. 6. Beach access available but definitely not easy unless you were a kid or a goat. Path was overgrown and not clearly definited. 7. Mattresses average at best. But back to the view -- absolutely wonderful from both the upstairs deck and the downstairs living area. Made up for all the other problems because we had great weather. Not so sure how happy I would have been had the weather been poor. Overall I would give this property 3.5 stars. We are serial remodelers -- this house has great bones. It could be spectacular with a little work and elbow grease.
A guest from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2012 This is a nice sized, very basic cabin with a nice view and great beach access. Great views from the ample deck and basement living room. Kitchens are outdated but totally functional. Decor is older but funky in a fun way.
Christine K. from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2011 It was cozy and tucked away from the public which was so pleasant. The only thing was it smelt very strong of something musty. We opened all the doors and Windows and that fixed it for the most part. I definitely plan to stay here again in 2012 if possible.
Irene E. from everett, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2010 We enjoyed our time very much. There was lots of room to spread out in. The kids enjoyed the beach, even though it was winter. At first some of the heaters wouldn't work, but the property manager had that fixed. We would go there again.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2010 The location is spectacular. The house is a bit worn for wear, but perfectly fine.We had a big party and spilled out into the adjacent cottage for three nights. This was convenient. the semi-remote location was a big plus
Beautiful view and great for family get togethers...
Merry S. from Yakima, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2009 We have stayed at this property before, a few years ago, so we knew it could accomodate all of us parents, kids and grandkids. However, we were told it would sleep nine. This was including the sofa bed and futon. But there was no sheets provided for these beds, only blankets. It is kind of "icky" to sleep with blankets only (when you don't know who used them before you). It would have been nice to have clean sheets. And I would have brought some myself, if I would have known that I needed to.Other than that, we enjoyed our visit.Oh...for your information...the upstairs toaster did not work, so we switched it with the downstairs one provided and used it instead.
