Garden Isle consists of two charming garden cottages with a hot tub and a three bedroom vacation home. Our property is located on two + acres just steps from the beach, our town park and the 1853 historic waterfront district of Coupeville (the second oldest town in the state of Washington). From our property there are lovely views of the waters of Penn Cove and the 11,000 foot high Mount Baker. Our town is known for its Penn Cove Mussels and they are served in the wonderful restaurants in town. Life Magazine consider Whidbey Island one the top 100 dream destinations in the world. Please come and stay with us.

My husband and I get away from home for at least one night a month (our date night). We chose Garden Isle Guest Cottages as our place to stay this month. The cottages are nice with a queen bed and small kitchenette that is fully equipped (basically a studio apartment). We

Our cottage was just perfect. We've started staying on Whidbey Island every couple of months. So we know the island well, and have tried a few places. This place is a secret gem. Its in town, so walkable to everything nice in Coupeville, yet off the waterfront by one block

Response from gardenisle, Owner at Garden Isle Guest Cottages
Responded Oct 26, 2015
Linda, I am very sorry that you are upset that I didn’t refund your last night’s stay. It is clearly stated in the confirmation that was sent to you that you would be responsible for the cost of your stay if you cancel within a week of your arrival date, unless we could re-book the dates of your stay. I held our cottage for you in good faith for 2.5 months and turn away other potential guests. I would have been happy to refund your money if we were able to re-book your cottage but we were not able too. Our goal is to have our guest have the best stay possible. Our cottages are fully stocked private units and because I want to respect each person’s privacy, I ask our guests when they arrive how often they would like to have their cottage service and some want daily service and some do not. I am sorry for the confusion, I would have been happy to have made your bed or taken out any garbage but I didn’t realize you wanted that done from our conversation. Sincerely, Dan Currier

Hi from Whidbey Island. We love dogs but the owner of the Firehouse will only allow small non allergenic dogs to stay in the Inn. Sincerely, Dan Currier
