We stayed in one of the cottages and found it to be small but very comfortable. The owner is very knowledgable and helpful for things to do, places to eat etc. The goody bag that they provide is nice but they no longer offer any breakfast. There are many places within walking distance to eat.

Very nicely furnished with a great welcome basket that was unexpected. This is a great option for some privacy and quiet with a great location close to town. We were within walking... More

We stayed in the sea breeze cottage and it was everything I expected and more. It's so quaint and completely fits in with the town. The surrounding green space is very relaxing. It's so close to shops, excellent restaurants and around the corner from the farmers market held on Saturdays. It's a lovely are and we really enjoyed our stay.... More

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 will definitely be coming back.

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 so its not near as expensive as the waterfront venues.... More
