Freeland house description

Sleeping Accomodations for 6:
Two bedrooms: 1 Queen bed and 1 Twin bed in each bedroom.

Direct Beachfront. No bank, walk a gentle slope to the ocean. Relax to the lap of the water in a quiet peaceful area. Savor colorful Western sunset views across Holmes Harbor. Spacious living, kitchen dining. Upstairs 25 foot wide master bedroom has panoramic Ocean views via large windows for a light & cheery interior. Plus a balcony overlooking the ocean.

This south & west facing beach is warm as it enjoys long hours of afternoon sunshine. Just 3 stair steps from the lawn to the warm sunny beach you'll find lots of interesting driftwood, seashells, and pretty stones to collect. A beachcomber's delight. Free seafood when you dig for delicious clams and pick mussels from our beach.

Drive your car close to the house for easy unloading in our spacious driveway.

The house is 7 minutes from Freeland & Freeland Hall, a popular wedding venue. 12 minutes to Langley from South Whidbey Island’s charming Beverly Beach neighborhood where the beaches are private and the fir trees wave at you as you walk quiet roads.

Saltwater views on all levels. The home has expansive stone countertops, tile, carpeting. Comfortable leather furniture in a spacious relaxing living room, kitchen, both decks & master bedroom provide sights of sea and shore birds, ducks & geese, sea lions, harbor seals on Holmes Harbor Sound. Eagles are common sightings with their distinctive tiny voice. Grey whale sightings are a possibility in the spring.

Enjoy a upstairs master bedroom that runs the full length of the house with an ocean view balcony and private bathroom. The other bedroom and bathroom are on the main level, along with a full well stocked kitchen and living room.

A spiral staircase from the deck leads to the lawn, vegetable garden and beach where you may see bunnies, deer, squirrels, and other wildlife. Gray Whales are seasonal March/April. Crabbing in season! The saltwater in front of the house is shallow & warms in the summer for floating, swimming and snorkeling. A great place to launch your kayak or canoe. Bring your boat to launch 5 houses North via a beach access road.

Surrounding natural areas provide opportunities for hiking, biking, sightseeing, golf while a short drive to Freeland or Langley allows access to plenty of shopping, entertainment and dining options. Lots of venues with live music on the island.

Enjoy a private get-away or family vacation at this wonderful beach house!
