This September my group of 50 something year old women will be embarking on the 25th anniversary of travelling together. And where are we celebrating? At Marty’s Place, of course! Actually, this will be our 4th year staying in this beautifully restored old home on Whidbey Island. A gourmet’s dream kitchen, plenty of room for the six of us to put together a fantastic meal or two. Views everywhere you turn, wonderfully kept grounds, fantastic covered wrap around deck, comfortable beds and lots of bathrooms! And if that weren’t enough, a very helpful and responsive owner/caretaker should any problems arise. I can’t recommend this home enough. But don’t make your reservations for early September…that’s when we go!!
Our group of old friends has traveled widely together through the years, and were fortunate to spend a few nights at Marty’s place. It is a comfortable, welcoming home which is very well appointed. Lots of space for the 8 of us, great kitchen, comfy beds, very relaxing and quiet. Charlie was quite helpful and answered questions promptly. Langley is a charming village, with a few good restaurants if you decide not to cook at the house. We will return!
We just stayed at this gorgeous home for a week, and can’t wait to return. We had family coming in from Pennsylvania and Colorado, and felt this would be a lovely place for our group to gather, and we were not disappointed. With 6 adults and two small children, this was the perfect base for us to explore Whidbey Island and the surrounding area. This home is spacious, perfectly equipped, beautiful and extremely well maintained. With the gourmet kitchen and large dining area, we planned evening meals each night in the house. The wrap around covered porch is the perfect location for afternoon happy hour, bird and whale watching, and just relaxing. We also took advantage of the wonderful fire pit, roasting hot dogs and eating S’mores! Langely is within walking distance and has quaint shops and restaurants to enjoy. I can’t say enough about this fabulous home. It oozes pride of ownership! Our family made special memories here that will never be forgotten!

This is the third time we have stayed with friends at Marty’s Place. The building is a beautifully restored farmhouse with acres of yard and a view of Saratoga Passage and Camano Island. The accommodations are comfortable, spacious, and very well maintained. The kitchen is well equipped (although the knives are incredibly dull!) and we had no problems cooking and baking during our stay.
The walk to town (Langley) is not too long and there are good restaurants and shops there to keep you amused when you;re not relaxing at Marty’s Place. As in the past, we left looking forward to our next visit.

Words cannot express the gratitude our family extends to you, for welcoming guests at Marty’s Place. The house and farm exceeded our expectations. When we reserved the week , after finding Marty’s Place on the internet, we were excited to see what we had chosen. From the moment we set foot in the yard and walked into the house, we were delighted. It was even better than we imagined. The house is beautifully furnished and so well maintained. The inspiring view is imprinted in memory. We had a magical week, honoring special birthdays, exploring Whidbey, and being together. We celebrate everyone at Marty’s Place whom helps to keep the doors open, allowing guests to spend time at a truly special property. We do hope to return again one day. May that be sooner rather than later. –With appreciation
