I can’t say enough good things about our stay and experience with Dale and Carol. They are super sweet, graciously generous, amazingly accommodating; always kindly available but not intrusive. Just all around superb hosts. I wish I could keep this place secret so we can keep it all to ourselves, and protected, but all good things must be shared :) . The clams, mussels, and oyster farm was 5 Star quality and my wife and I had fun foraging for our night’s dinner. Dale and Carol provided everything you need from instructions on how to forage, recipes, and even provided a few simple ingredients we forgot to pack. The sea bounty at Sunset Cove fed us with memorable meals throughout our weekend, and we could not ask for anything better. We already booked our next stay!! Thank you so much, Dale & Carol

When looking into this place, I had wondered why the Millers had a cumulative average 5.0 from all the reviewers. Now I understand why. Dale and Carol were great, very hospitable, available to help. The place was as advertised, no disappointing surprises. The setting and views were peaceful and pretty. The shellfish were great. We ate butter clams, mussels, and oysters. We also enjoyed seeing and feeding the deer that came onto the lawn in the evening. Our small dogs, 12# and 14# cockapoos, enjoyed the walks and beach. They were too small to take the stairs to the beach, as it is quite steep, but a public path to the beach is nearby. We stayed three nights. We will be back.

I absolutely love this property! So relaxing and yet there are plenty of activities to keep folks busy. Kayaking, paddle boarding, canoeing, clamming, beach combing, deer feeding, Orca spotting (yup, we spotted some) and so much more. Not for parties or loud group though. Love the owners.

This is our family’s favorite place to stay for a relaxing weekend getaway! This is our third time visiting and we always love it here. The view of the Puget Sound is beautiful, home is clean and very comfortable and we love having access to the kayaks and paddle board. It’s a perfect place to unwind in nature. Thanks to Dale and Carol for another lovely weekend. We look forward to visiting again!

Had the Best Time!
Carol was very helpful in answering all my questions before our stay, and she kept us updated any time the ferry schedule changed. Her and Dale were very welcoming when we arrived and gave us the lay of the land - we immediately felt right at home! There were so many fun activities to choose from - paddle boat, kayaks, row boat, SUPs, exploring the island. My kids especially enjoyed the tree swing, feeding the deer and going to the park! We enjoyed coffee in the quiet mornings, meals on the deck, and beautiful sunsets in the evening. Amazing view of the Sound and mountain range! Dale and Carol showed us how to dig for clams, clean/prepare them, cook them, and even how to shuck oysters! We had a wonderful couple days, and I can’t wait until we can come back!

Beautiful location.
This property is a little different because the owners live above the rental. They were a great combination of very helpful and respectful of our privacy. Our daughter and grandkids ages 3 and 5, were there for a short time. It was fun for them but my daughter was concerned about the long stairs and the deep water etc. She didn’t find it restful. Maybe be better for some older children. The beach was very nice and we swam though a little chilly but refreshing. It was in the 90’s a couple of times and the AC was great. The room area is very nice and modern. Very comfortable bed. My husband also did some fishing off the shore. And we tried the shell fish which was fun. Oh and orcas and dolphins were seen off the beach. I definitely would recommend.

Pictures didn't do it justice!
There were many new beautiful additions to the home decor, very quaint. And the view, OMG! As far as the eye could see. The clam digging was super easy and fun and when the tide was low the beach stretched on forever and revealed many hidden treasures. The deer and fawn grazing just added to the charm.

10/10 would stay again
Carol and Dale were very kind and showed us how to harvest clams and oysters. They also gave us an onion when we realized we needed one for the clam chowder. They also had a very adorable german shepherd who was so well behaved and gentle. Overall it was a fun experience. 10/10 would stay again.
