Beautiful Whidbey Getaway

Tucked away this was the perfect place to stay for a weekend getaway. Driving up the driveway we didn't realize in fact how secluded the property was. But it was the perfect spot in the woods. Rooms were comfortable, the kitchen was well appointed and the hot tub was a real treat. Would love to come back and enjoy in the summer but perfect for a winter getaway!

Stay at Rhythm Waters

It was like having your own private Garden Paradise

Wow. What a treat. The pictures just don't do this place justice. It is an amazing property behind the smaller studio place. The house is totally private. What a jem of a property. Kitchen and living room are open and have amazing views. There is an amazing deck to sit and drink coffee or eat dinner on. There are many places in the gardens to sit and relax as well. I'd definitely love to stay here again.

Serenity Meow

The nicest little getaway spot with the absolute loveliest landscaping ever. This fat cat was lazy and content to spend a couple nights in this place. So lovely. Book a stay right meow.

Rhythm Waters

My friend and I had a wonderful experience. The time went by so fast. My dog seemed to enjoy exploring a new place too. I was only inconvenienced by the lightning in my downstairs bedroom.

Vacation getaway

We stayed here for a few days after our wedding as a mini honeymoon before our cruise. We absolutely loved it! It was very relaxing and was a nice escape from the world and stress from a wedding! We loved every minute of it and would love to go back soon! Was very clean and presentable and in a great location! Would recommend it to anyone!

Secluded cabin home

Beautiful home 10min away from ferri. Very secluded, but beautiful gardens and ponds. It was scary at night in the living room because it is all glass windows. Also the fronts were very loud outside the master bedroom. Overall great place will definitely be back. Also it best to arrive in the daytime it is very dark.

Visited on "June - 2016

Definitely a rare find

My family and I had a great time at this location. The cabin is very nice and the rate is fair. The hot tub overlooks the pond full of koi fish along with some grass to play around in. We will definitely be considering this property again in the future. Thanks for the awesome weekend.

Great Langley vacation rental

Great location, just as described,beautiful grounds, nice for extended family to attend wedding in Langley. Do be aware that it is an open floor plan,and that voices travel, but it was great for our family to all stay together, loved having the hot tub, grill and beautifully landscaped property to relax at.

The house was great but the property was beyond magnificent . We were there to destress and heal after a traumatic year and it worked. Love all the critters too. My only complaint was to get all of my luggage and cooler etc was a long trek since you cannot get the vehicle to the house

Dream place

Have stayed here before and would live here if I could. The design of the house and the property is something to behold. The appliances are top notch.

218 Rythm Waters

This place is absolutely amazing! Top notch! We were sad to leave it!!!! While you’re there make sure to check out Coupeville and Deception Pass! Just as an FYI to managers, dishwasher was not working and there were not enough plates and bowls for 6 people. These things are an oversight and fixable.Other than that I give it 5 stars for sure!!!

Slice of Heaven

I knew the first time I visited here that I would return. This is the most peaceful place on earth, I love all the nooks and crannies you can escape to right on the property. I've been here three times and will return again!

Paradise Found!!

We recently had a family BBQ at Rhythm Waters and stayed for 4 nights. The accommodations were ample, the property was by far the most beautiful place we could have chosen to spend time with family and friends alike. Our guests raved on and on about how peaceful, gorgeous, and serene the venue was. We plan to make this place a yearly part of our family functions. It is truly Heaven on Earth!

Valentine Getaway

We had a great time. Our favorite part was the beautiful, private yard that we spent hours in. Our only issues were the wifi, which the literature said didn't need a password, actually did. The place is beautiful but the living room furniture was extremely uncomfortable, to the point that we piled the couch with blankets and we were still not comfortable. I would gladly go back, for as long as possible, and recommend this property to our friends & family, provided the furniture is replaced.

Honeymoon Heaven

We had the best honeymoon ever at this house. It was exactly what we were looking for, and could not be a more exceptional property. It is very secluded, and you feel like you are a million miles away from anything (actually downtown Langley is an easy 2 mile walk). We saw deer almost every day, and a baby fawn a couple of times. We really can not say enough about the property. I am already trying to figure out a way to visit again.

A Lovely Retreat

My fiancee and I had a relaxing and enjoyable retreat with our dog at this property over President's day weekend. The property is special and has a soulful quality. The house and gardens are fantastic and obviously well-cared for, and the welcome for dogs unmatched. We had the good fortune to meet the owner who was very kind. We bever successfully figured out how to operate the entertainment center, but that was not the primary purpose of our trip and did not disappoint. We plan to return often. Those with mobility limitations should note that the house has one large bedroom on the main floor and a loft with two beds accessed by a narrow spiral staircase.

WARNING NO PRIVACY: You share this property with strangers

I was so happy to find this property with 5 acres of beautiful gardens for our anniversary. When we arrived we were confused about the other house 10 feet away from the front porch, but assumed it was something they rent out as an extra room for large families. We loved the house and grounds. The view of the ponds and grounds from the master bedroom is so romantic. In the morning, after awakening to the beautiful view from the bedroom, we enjoyed some "private time". Only a minute or 2 afterward, we were horrified to see a woman walking her dog past our bedroom windows. Where did she come from? How long had she been there? WHAT HAD SHE SEEN!?!? I thought we were alone on 5 acres! Throughout the rest of the day, she and her family returned to enjoy what we thought was our private garden for the weekend. Instead of "total privacy from the outside world" as the VBRO ad says, we found ourselves on display in a house with windows everywhere and strangers only 10 feet away. You can't even walk from the bedroom to the bathroom without being visible from the front porch. We went from feeling absolute privacy to feeling exposed and under siege, unsure when the neighbors will be back to look in our windows. Worst of all were the questions of what had she seen that morning? What about the night before? Were they out walking the dog after dark? We wouldn't have been able to see them in the dark from our bedroom, but they would have seen us in the bedroom lit up like a stage show! Our weekend of absolute privacy turned into a nightmare dominated by the question of what the neighbors saw before we knew they were there and hiding from them to maintain our dignity afterward.Later to top off our disappointment we got to smell our neighbor smoking weed, yeah it's legal, but not a pleasant smell if it's not your thing. Finally, the hot tub water was yellow looking and slimy to the touch. On top of everything else I paid a $45 hot tub cleaning fee to get a dirty hot tub.

One-of-a-Kind Experience

We got married here in 2010, and enjoyed returning to celebrate five years! :)

Visited on "July - 2015

Beautiful property

We only stayed for a long weekend, but really enjoyed our time here. It's a short drive to both the Clinton ferry terminal and downtown Langley, but set far back from the main road for privacy. The property is very well maintained. There is another rental property adjacent to this one. No one was there during our stay, but be aware that you may have neighbors very close by.

Great family stay!

We had a wonderful time at this great and peaceful property. The ponds and grounds are amazing, and it was lovely to just sit and relax throughout the weekend.The only downsides were the smell of the water (rotten eggs), and the noise you can hear from any room in the house (open space with no privacy in master bedroom). These were the only reasons for the lower rating.If it was one or two couples, we would definitely stay again. But it's a little overwhelming with a larger family.

Extremely poor Cust service and experience from rental company

I was hoping I did not have to write this feedback and asked the rental company to do what was right, but they decided not to. First , the property is very nice - have no issues with the rental. During our stay there was an island wide power outage with no eta to fix. Having lived on an island, I understand this happens and have no issues with power outages. The issue was the home has a well and when the power goes out you lose service for running water. We made the decision to leave the property one day early as we had no running water and could not flush toilets or shower. Our thought was the home owner would not want people using their home without the ability to maintain proper sanitation, nor did we want to stay in a home that didn't have these services. I informed the rental company the following day as to our decision expecting agreement that the right thing to do was not use the property. Their comments/ questions were - "why didn't you call"? I was told no other rentals available days before during the rental process - was confident they had no other property to fit our needs. "This is an act of God and not our fault" - so act of God is the customers fault then. I could list a few others all in the same vein. My issue is the rental company could have made this right - they offered a $100 discount for not being able to use the home one of two days. Their overall concern for proper sanitation ( inability to flush toilets, no running water) was nonexistant - I would think the home owner would not want people staying in their home with these conditions, yet this is what the rental company thought was ok. This is not about money for me, but more about good Cust service and making a decision with overall sanitation in mind. I do not find pleasure in writing feedback like this, but I did want others to understand the overall philosophy of the rental company before they make a decision to rent with this company.

A Storybook Setting

We loved, loved, loved Rhythm Waters for our Thanksgiving get-away. Gardens glistening with frost, architectural features, beautiful landscaping, koi ponds, curved gravel pathways, and meditation seating together created a tranquil, relaxing setting. We enjoyed the visits by Heron, Deer and Squirrel. The kitchen and dining area were superb for cooking and eating our Thanksgiving feast. Everything was at our fingertips. What a marvelous ambience with soaring ceilings, winding staircase, and windows to our private storybook setting! We appreciated the heated cement floors when the temps dipped to freezing. The two-sided gas fireplace is attractive, and we spent many hours mesmerized by the flames. Daily soakings in the hot tub on the deck were a joy.Whether you seek a private vacation destination or a base for exploring Langley, this house is ideal! We stayed four nights and did not want to leave this peaceful haven. We will return!

Beautiful Property

Beautiful gardens and setting! Perfect location for a couple and guests that are comfortable with semi-privacy (loft opens up into bedroom so you can hear noise from loft to bedroom and vice versa). Furnishings are comfortable and full windows facing garden brings the outside in. You definitely feel like you are on vacation. Very close to town with shops and restaurants. I would recommend adding a piece of furniture in the bedroom that allows you to store clothes and towel hooks in the bathroom. We would definitely go back and recommend to others.

Wonderful relaxation

We booked a weekend to get out of the city and truly unwind and boy did Rhythm Waters deliver! The grounds were beautiful. The house was modern and clean inside. Nice amenities - gas stove, fridge, stocked with nice kitchenware and washer/dryer. It was just the 2 of us but would've been comfortable with another couple. We kicked ourselves for not booking another night. We'll be back for sure.I would suggest adding blinds to the main living area / kitchen...

This was amazing!!

This was the most amazing property! The grounds were astonishing and we had it all to ourselves. The koi ponds were awesome and the trees!!! Wow...we opted to spend our days there rather than going into town - I didn't even miss the beach!

Visited on "June - 2016

Modern, rustic getaway

Love this place! Will definitely stay there again. One flaw- water had a strange smell to it- assuming because it was well water. Definitely not drinkable and still felt like I needed a shower after showering. ? But- overall an amazing, relaxing getaway. We were even greeted by deer every evening.

Visited on "April - 2016

Wonderful Getaway!!

Everyting about this home is wonderful. Our two boys had a blast watching the Koi fish everyday and running around the grounds. The hot tub was super fun in the evening, even when it rained. The home is located near town and the BEST playground ever!! Loved it and I'm sure we will stay here again. :)

Amazing retreat so close to the city!

My fiancee and I truly enjoyed our stay here.The grounds are amazing and the heated floors feel nice underfoot in the winter. The hot tub is perfect and easily accessible from the bathroom and downstairs bedroom. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and the loft was a fun little addition. We spent three days watching media, soaking in the tub, cooking good food and enjoying each others company. We will definitely be back. Maybe even to get married! The grounds are big enough to host a small ceremony and reception. In the summer months, it would be truly magical.

I'm hesitant to say anything about this property because I want to keep it a secret! It was incredible and we will definitely be back.

Lovely but lonely

It is a beautiful spot but we found it a little to isolated for us.

Beauty and Enchantment borne in these woods!

The property is a beauty rarely found in rental homes. I would recommend it to anyone, with a few disclaimers. The beds are futons. The rental agreement states that a starter supply of toilet paper will be provided. 2 rolls. However the home is stocked with quite a variety of Kurig pods for your use! I beg the owners to loosen the purse strings on the paper supply's. Honestly, one pod costs more than a roll of paper. Thankfully, we brought our own supply. If the septic system is the reasoning, most people spending 300 a night, should be more respectful. We will highly recommend this lovely jewel, so painstakingly manicured to the height of perfection. Great place for family photos and the fountain at night is a most delightful surprise!

Amazing getaway

Rhythm Waters is a wonderful property with all the amenities you could ask for. The garden, deck, and pond/fountain are so peaceful; we loved listening to the sound of the running water at night. I'm pretty sure our dog loved it too. It's perfect for a romantic getaway for two.

Romantic, serene beautifully landscaped hideaway

We rented Rhythm Waters for a weekend wedding and found it to be a very special experience. The only small change I would recommend is to have clearer signage and lighting for the parking. Otherwise it was excellent as a place to have a quiet retreat for 2 or a wedding for many. The beautiful nooks and crannies and the loving landscaping were amazing.

Escape to Paradise

Truly enjoyed our family reunion here. Beautiful and serene escape into the arms of Mother Nature. Well maintained gardens. It was a truly healing experience just walking around in the gardens, watching the koi. Felt so much at peace. Surrounded by trees all around. Good sized hot tub.Well appointed kitchen and grill. The house has all standard amenities. Very beautiful and romantic view from the bedroom. Nice windows all around.The attic upstairs has another 2 beds with a balcony above the bedroom below. From every place in the house you can see lovely green trees.The bathroom could benefit from some attention ( shower door esp) which management was willing to look into. Very responsive and attentive management. Great place for a family getaway,a romantic getaway, also great for parties. Loved our stay here!!
