“Perfection in paradise.”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have rented many places over the years and have always been very pleased with the properties, Sandpiper Haven is no exception, EXCEPT:
Golly this place goes above and beyond what a renter has a right to expect, need and want. Very friendly and informative emails from Julie and the opportunity to check in early!
It was very clean and manicured, comfy beds, lovely linens, very well stocked kitchen with lovely bits n bobs such as jams, spices etc, super chocolates too t.y. Beautiful books about the area and the wildlife, squashy sofa to sink into, fab garden to attract the wildlife, lovely outdoor seating areas, amazing views. Honestly I could bore you for hours here, but one of the really outstanding things for me was the attention to even the minutest details, such as travel size toileteries if you have forgotten yours, a place for everything and every thing in its place, tissues, laundry products, washing up products.....see told you I could bore you.
This place is a huge success thanks to the owners being so concerned with the renter having as easy and comfortable and friendly a stay as possible. I have never encountered this level of attention EVER.
Thank you so much for allowing us this slice of a perfect paradise.

Dear Wendy and Francis, It means so much to us to have Guests come from so far away - Whales!! and choose our home. And it makes it extra special that we surpassed your expectations as seasoned travelers, and really were able to provide a home-away-from-home experience in a beautiful setting (our goal). Do come again if your travels include the PNW again!! - Julie and Peter

“Perfect place to enjoy Penn Cove”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This well-appointed vacation home is a comfortable spot to enjoy everything that Whidbey Island has to offer. The landscaping around the house is lovely, inviting you outdoors to enjoy the deck and fire pit along with the very private and intimate patio overlooking the water. The interior is lovely and conducive to sitting on the couch by the fireplace with a good book (and/or a good "honey").

Dear Tania,
Wow, you truly hit the nail on the head of all we are trying to achieve providing that home-away-from-home feeling. Makes your job, the Guests, much easier :). We started supplying all the wood for the outdoor firepit about a year ago so glad you liked that, too. And by all means come again! -Julie & Peter.
