Property of the Week


Family is a very important part of my life. I am currently planning a family reunion and I want us all to go somewhere we have not visited in the past. I absolutely love the Pacific Northwest and have discovered that Whidbey Island, Washington is an exquisite destination.  One of the properties I’m considering for my family reunion is this gorgeous Cape Cod style home on the Southern tip of Whidbey Island, check it out: 370431.


What attracted me to this property:

There are so many things that make this property attractive. The first thing that caught my attention was its location. There’s nothing quite as lovely as a home that sits directly on the beach. I also love the amenities. Who doesn’t love sitting around a bonfire on the beach to warm yourself or to roast marshmallows with your family?



This home also features a fantastic game room that would be great fun on rainy days.



There’s also a hot tub which would be a great place to relax after a long hard day beach combing. Finally, there’s an awesome propane grill ready for you to cook the fresh seafood you can catch or purchase in the area.



What I love about this listing:

The description is captivating! The owner tells me everything I need to know about the house and all its amenities. The owner was wise to share in the description that this home was featured on an ABC Television show, so cool!

The photos are gorgeous. They are well lit and staged beautifully.


The reviews are also wonderful. This owner has been with HomeAway since 2003 and the reviews are a perfect example of the fantastic experience they are providing for their renters.

What could be improved:

The owner of this property has done an amazing job with this listing. They’ve gone above and beyond with the description, photos, amenities and everything else.

The only thing that I would even consider changing is the photo of the beach with the kids in it. Travelers want to be able to imagine themselves in these homes; that’s more easily accomplished if they don’t see other people in the space.


I really hope that my family will be as eager as I am to hold our family reunion at this beautiful home.
