    We had a great time in this cozy cottage. It was a perfect location for a small family to get away. The couch pull out was surprisingly comfortable. We loved walking the grounds and playing badminton. The hosts were generous and kind. We loved our relaxing time at the cottage and will undoubtedly be back.

    We had a great time staying here for 3 nights. It had everything we needed and was just the right size for my husband, 7 yr old, and myself. The bed was extremely comfortable and everything was clean. It was a great home base to explore the island.

    Oh my, The Quintessa!! The accommodations, the grounds - and most especially the HOSTS are incredibly amazing in every way! Every detail is so thoughtfully carried out - from the sweet personal touches, the complimentary snacks, juice & water, the pristine cleanliness, the luxurious linens, the variety of sundries available.....I can go on and on. It is perfection. We look forward to sharing The Quintessa with our entire brood of 28 for our intimate Whidbey Island wedding!!

    Where to start.... This was my second stay at the Quintessa with my I I I I recently stayed in the cottage with my girlfriend. Everything from start to finish with this place was just absolutely magical. The owners were in constant communication with us - email at first and then via text to answer any questions we could have possibly had. They were prompt, courteous, and worked with us to make sure that our reservation was perfect. We stayed in the cottage. Let me tell you, it was a miniature paradise for the two of us. The Cottage: The cottage is extremely cozy. There are large windows in the main area offering spectacular views of the property and the island. The bed is one of the most comfortable I've found myself in in a very long time. There is a fireplace heater in the living room, a provided space heater for the bedroom, and a very efficient wall heater for the bathroom. Our whole stay was warm and cozy. Beyond that, the kitchen is fully equipped, there's a washer/dryer in unit, a tub, shower, and plenty of extra bedding/blankets/towels/etc. The small things: Awaiting us upon our arrival was a sign welcoming us with our names on it as well as champagne glasses and sparkling cider (it was new years). Additionally there was some granola and 2 gallons of fresh water provided just in case you're not comfortable drinking/using the double filtered well water. The owners also gave us their number should we need anything extra (including additional water/etc.). They were even kind enough to leave us some handpicked flowers from Pike Place during our stay. The Island/Property: WOW! The property itself sprawls behind and in front of the cottage offering ample opportunity to explore. Beyond that, it's only a nice 30 minute walk to Maxwelton Beach which offers spectacular views. There's still a ton more to do on the island that we hope to get to next trip. In simple summary: This place is absolutely amazing. Don't hesitate, book now!

    Beautiful property. Clean, Quiet, Cozy, Magical.

    Enjoyed our stay in this charming cottage! We felt like we were in a treehouse, such pretty views from the balcony! We were welcomed with special gifts and signs on the exterior, a very nice touch! Very cozy cottage for our anniversary getaway!

    We loved the property. The grounds are beautiful. Carrie, the owner, is very nice and very welcoming. Everything was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. But for that price, they could do a few things better: 1. Lack of heat. It was cold and the have one fake fireplace and a space heater. 2. Another TV that works in the main room would be nice (this one plays DVD's only). 3. Wifi that works (we received spotty signals that would disappear).

    Felt like we were at home ... Peaceful, beautiful, and clean home. Very relaxing trip! We would love to come back sometime. Owners are very accommodating and helpful! Loved the Welcome sign and wine....local town people so welcoming and state parks beautiful. Made us wonder why we live in California. Would like to suggests another chair in the front room for relaxing and a side table for window side of the bed. Hope to return in the near future and bring some friends.
