Designed by famed waterfront architect Robert Maloney, the Beach Hideaway will take your breath away. With its two bedrooms, 2.5 baths, gourmet kitchen, 42' Plasma HDTV and surround sound in the living room, massive river rock fireplace, decks to the water, and private hot tub, this bungalow sits on a private sandspit and has more charm and amenities than any waterfront getaway anywhere in Puget Sound. Once you arrive, you won’t want to leave-it’s amazing (just read some of the reviews, many from honeymooners).
Set on a private spit of land in Puget Sound, this wood beamed cottage was originally built in the 1950s (when you could still build right on the beach). It is so remote that you have to use a four wheel drive Kawasaki Mule to even get to it. But don’t worry, it’s the Lexus of its class with comfortable, covered seating for four, plus plenty of luggage space.
Everywhere, we strive to keep the best of the old, while incorporating the finest in modern touches and charm to make your stay nothing short of wondrous. We’ve even incorporated what the beach has given us for décor: driftwood retainer wall in the courtyards, and an old, long forgotten, abandoned beach beam from some far away land as our mantle.
You have your own private beach with driftwood, clams, mussels, oysters, and so much to explore, as there are no other homes adjacent in either direction. The state of the art hot tub, away from prying eyes, where the ladies might relax with their wine, while the guys take a boat for fishing with a beer. Or maybe you’ll all venture out in kayaks we can arrange for you.
Inside, you’ll find that the best of the old beach cabin with its old growth beams have been painstakingly preserved to former richness by Ron Milne, Master Refinisher. They are enhanced with rich slate, nails head flooring, warm wall treatment, and designer lighting to set the mood to make those special moments.
The furnishings, like all of Whidbey Retreats (WR) properties, is the finest. What a great place to watch the theatre level satellite cinema system, or to just curl up with the stereo surround, toes tucked under one of our oversized throws, while enjoying the flames of the river rock fireplace. Or listen to nothing more than the lapping waves that will do their best to still and comfort your soul. And, the only sounds you will hear will not be people, but the bald eagles that live in high aeries above along the shore; their cries that pierce the air are so distinctive. (Be sure to bring your camera, especially to capture the mottled brown of the young eagles less than three years old.)
Also, like the other WR properties, the house is a veritable art gallery, with each key painting set with museum lighting. These are some of the finest from the owner’s private collection of over 300 pieces, and are meant to evoke a sense of romance and sensuality.
The kitchen is a gourmet chefs dream-you’ll want to go home and redo your own, except that you won’t likely have a setting like this where you are viewing the ocean only feet from the kitchen window. It has every amenity with slate counters, stainless appliances, and all the utensils you will need to make those special meals for your special getaway. There’s even a serving bar. It’s set up with a couple of eating stools for the quick meal or to perfectly present the cocktail hour martinis (Bombay Sapphire straight, very dry, with two olives for us)!.
At night the dining table sits surrounded by glass with a beautiful chandelier, which you may want to dim to see the lights of the boats on the ocean. Of course, there is both formal outdoor dining, or our favorite is to be casual with the table side luxury chaise lounge chairs. Of course, there is a professional BBQ at your disposal. Or the unprofessional BBQ in the form of your own beach fire pit where you roast hot dogs and have smores on the beach. Yum!

Romantic and Perfect even in the winter
We were worried about going to a beachfront home in December, but this place was perfect! We sat for hours and watched the water, sand, birds, and seals and it was extraordinary. The house is very private, the hot tub was spacious and clean and right at the waters edge. The bedding was very comfortable and we loved the Tempurpedic bed. Our only complaint is that we had to leave to get food! We will be back again. This place was cool.
