Unwind by the upstairs/downstairs gas fireplaces with a book, or view egrets, bald eagles and sea otters as you sip a glass of wine on the expansive deck.
Rejuvenate as you listen to the waves lapping the shore. Access the beach from a walk across the lawn to the mid-bank stairs or follow a short path from the front door. Beach mats, snorkle gear, and picnic bags will add to your day at the beach.

Evenings are the perfect time to head outdoors to luxuriate in the privacy of the therapeutic 6-person “massage” hot tub that overlooks the Saratoga Straits, or to gaze at the glow of embers from the wood burning fire pit.

Absolutely magical sanctuary
Absolutely magical sanctuary
This is the second time we have stayed here, and we absolutely love it. The view is nonstop and we see the most amazing skies, Good weather or bad. The house is wonderfully comfortable, with a great kitchen to cook in, beautiful green yard, hot tub with view, and plenty of nice spots to settle in and relax. Easy access to a beach to walk on, with lots of small rocks with baby crabs hiding underneath. Every day we saw bald eagles and herons. Highly recommend!

Loved being in this beautiful home with our son and his family. In spite of weather, we enjoyed combing the beach with our grandsons, collecting shells, picking blackberries. The spacious living area accommodated lego building, Scrabble, card games, relaxing by the fire, and Sunday football. The evening hot tub under gentle rainfall was awesome after a day exploring Fort Casey and Deception Pass. Included in the spectacular views were periodic visits by the deer for an evening nibble. Thanks for great accommodations!

Had a terrific time staying there with family, great quiet neighborhood for bike riding. Saw wild deer all three days there, blocks from the house. Oak Harbour is nice, 15 minute drive from the house. Thanks Jim!

Out of the 4 homes we stayed in on our last trip, this was our favourite. Wonderful views over the water through the large windows or from the deck. Saw 2 bald eagles sitting in nearby trees. We also enjoyed seeing the jets fly past, 4 together on one occasion. The property was very clean and well maintained and had every amenity you could want. The main problem for us was that it was so nice, we had a hard time leaving it to go out to sightsee! Would love to come again some day. Thanks

Beautiful home with every amenity needed
Beautiful home with every amenity needed
We enjoyed our stay at the house in Oak Harbor. It was just two of us and our 20 month old toddler. He had a blast running around peeking through the (off) fireplace into the main area and we spent an entire sunny afternoon at the beach chunking rocks into the Sound. The kitchen/pantry are very well stocked with spices, condiments and the basics. The view is spectacular, the home is more than comfortable, and the location is convenient (though we never really wanted to leave). There are neighbors somewhat close by, but they kept to themselves and we didn't feel like we lacked much privacy. Thanks for the great Father's Day Weekend visit.

We loved our time here - the home is even better than the pictures. Really spacious, beautiful scenery, very peaceful and the house has everything you could need/want. Great for children and adults alike. We were sad to leave!

Just enjoyed a wonderful few days with my family (mom, sister and 4 young children) in this home overlooking the water. My sister said, "We'll take it! Heck with catching the flight home!" Interactions with the owners were pleasant and everything was just as described on our arrival. Driving directions were detailed and accurate and there were thorough instructions about use of the many amenities, including gas fireplaces and hot tub. The home was beautifully appointed with all the amenities and a well supplied kitchen and we were very comfortable. I was initially worried about being too far from Oak Harbor proper, but the drive was a quick 10 minutes through pastoral, green rolling hills and farms. Lovely stay! Will definitely recommend to others.

Relaxing snowy weekend
Relaxing snowy weekend
We rented this home with another family for what turned out to be a snowy and relaxing weekend getaway. The home is beautiful, clean and well maintained. Everything was as advertised and Jim had every detail covered in the welcome package we recieved before arriving. We woke up to 4" of snow and had a great time in the large backyard throwing snowballs, making a snowman and sliding down the small hill. The hot tub was clean and felt great surrounded by snow! The entertainment room is great, including a huge 3D TV, comcast cable and blue ray player. There is also a TV on the main floor, in case you want to watch a movie and enjoy the view at the same time. And what a view! Beautiful sweeping views of the straight, mainland and mountains. Its also close to Deception Pass and Oak Harbor, which makes it easy to get to restaurants, shopping and sightseeing. We would definitely recommend this place to friends and family. We had a great time. Thanks Jim!

Why the Owner Chose Oak Harbor:
Over the years we have found ourselves drawn to Oak Harbor any time we had a few days to get away. Its' peacefulness, miles of beautiful beaches and scenery, friendly residents, and so many areas to explore led us back again and again.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the quiet neighborhood and the constantly changing seaside vistas, from wildlife to fishing boats, to the clouds floating by, and the sun shining on Mt. Baker. We have furnished the home in a contemporary yet casual style with an eye toward comfort and relaxation.
