Property description

This spacious, fully furnished, back beach, family-friendly house is just a short ferry ride from Seattle and located at spectacular Maxwelton Beach, one of Whidbey Islands best beaches boasting 5 miles of pristine sandy coastline. This house is not on the beach, there is a row of houses in front that are beachfront. You walk 1/2 block to the large, sandy, public beach, baseball field and playground. The walk to the beach is part of the fun, kids of all ages can safely ride or walk to the beach.

Enjoy a day at the beach sea kayaking (3 sit aboard kayaks provided) or bike riding the country roads (2 adult and 2 kids provided) in the quiet, safe, friendly community. Then enjoy yard games - badminton, volleyball, putting green, bocce ball or just throwing a football around. Top off your day with a nice sunset dinner on the deck, gather around the fire-ring and watch the stars. This is where family memories are made!

With 4 bedrooms (sleeps 10), 1.75 bathrooms, a large family room plus lounge area with tons of games and books and spacious light-filled kitchen, this is a great casual house to gather with friends and family. Situated on a very large 1/2 acre lot with an expansive westerly facing deck and a 1/2 block level walk to the public beach.

5 Miles to the quaint seaside village of Langley with art galleries, eateries, theater etc. Things to do close by include golfing at Island Greens, the wonderful Farmer's market at Bayview, Greenbank Cellars Winery, The Whidbey Island Winery, beach walking, swimming, bird watching and just relaxing on the beach. This 1770sf cottage is the quintessential Whidbey Island rental.
Owners are close by and can quickly respond to guest needs or requests.

Location

Step back in time at Maxwelton. A quiet street where kids can play, and an easy stroll to the no bank sandy beach with miles of shoreline, and the park with baseball field and playground. An enormous yard with a trampoline, lawn games and volleyball set up. Toss a ball, ride a bike, toast s'mores in the fire pit. This is a family vacation paradise.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

Why the Owner Chose Maxwelton Beach:
We first had a very small back beach house, then the large back beachhouse next door became available and it was the perfect beachhouse - spacious, not too fussy and big enough for all our friends and family, so we all decided to move up to the new beachhouse. Whidbey Island is a place where we could sit on the beach, or sit on the deck. We've discovered a great mountain biking area, and have hiked all over the island. Nothing beats Island Time!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Stepping on the ferry, and feeling like you are entering another era; slowing down to enjoy a walk to the beach, then down the beach. Hanging out playing yard games with our kids. Getting away from the rush of the city into a place that really feels special.
