Property description

New (2010) cabin nestled among Douglas Fir trees and mature landscaping. Verde fire granite countertops and real hardwood floors throughout with big picture windows make this vacation home feel as if it is part of the natural setting. Trails around property and to the beach. Private barbeque and outdoor fireplace to sit, relax and share a glass of wine.

Horses, sheep and goats frolic in nearby pastures while two Golden Retrievers will gladly show you the way to the beach trail and stairs.

Bring your boat (up to 16')or kayak and launch it at our private community boat launch on generally calm Holmes Harbor. Crabbing and fishing are great!

Bicycle riding is a must on Whidbey as well.

Keywords: New cabin built among the trees with nearby goats and sheep, Trail to beach

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Steve and Laura Strehlau have owned their property on Whidbey Island since 1989. Their log home has been featured in local magazines and their garden has been on the Whidbey Island Garden Tour in 2007 & 2011. This newly built cabin (800 sq ft) is located on the six acres on which their log home is situated. They share their time between their home on Whidbey Island and their home on Maui. They also love to travel and meet new people throughout the world. Animals are a big part of their lives with sheep, goats, a cat and two Golden Retrievers sharing their home.

Why the Owner Chose Holmes Harbor:
With over six acres of forest and beach, we wanted to share our land with others who want a bucolic setting for a vacation. Our vacation rental has just been completed (spring 2010) and is landscaped and ready for more guests. The home is bright and airy though it is located in a stand of 2nd growth Douglas Firs and Western Red Cedars. It offers both the woodlands and the beach, making it an ideal vacation rental. The setting is extremely private and quiet for a retreat like atmosphere. Trail and stairs meander thru huge evergreen and fern filled forest to our secluded beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Beach walking, crabbing in season, salmon fishing and picnicking are just some of the many outdoor activities here. We have even been awakened by barking sea lions and viewed grey whales in the Harbor on occasion. Bald Eagles fly on currents and deer are regular visitors. Being close to Seattle and Everett, Whidbey Island is an ideal getaway for anyone looking for a tranquil weekend or longer vacation. Our village of Langley offers excellent restaurants, shopping, art and entertainment and is only six miles from our door.
