Greenbank house description

If you have never been to Whidbey, you are in for a treat. Close to everything - but far away from it all. Located in the northwest corner of Washington State, in the Puget Sound, nestled between the Olympic and Cascade Mountains. Take in our fresh air, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Whidbey Island is located 1 1/2 hours north of Seattle. Enjoy a 20 minute ferry ride to the island. The island has enough activities to entertain you for weeks. Shop in nearby towns where window shopping, art galleries, antique stores, book stores, ice cream shops and many restaurants will keep you entertained for hours on end.

Come and see why Coastal Living Magazine calls Whidbey the 'accessible island'. Whidbey Island is a dream come true. Whether you are coming to hike, golf, fish, bird, bike, kayak, beachcomb, clam, gallery and antique shop, wine taste, or simply relax and enjoy the spectacular views - you have found the perfect spot. All this and the summer festivals will make your visit memorable.

This private beach house is located in central Whidbey in the community of Greenbank, near South Whidbey State Park, where there is an abundance of wooded and beach trails. The location of the house provides for easy access to all parts of the island. Travel south to the artsy village of Langley. Freeland, eight miles south, has all the shopping, even several thrift stores. Go north 12 miles to the historic and craftsy town of Coupeville, home of Ebey's Landing. The Victorian town of Port Townsend is only a ferry ride away, leaving from the Coupeville terminal. Oak Harbor is home to the Navy's Air Station. Further north takes you to Deception Pass Park, the most popular and beautiful park in Washington, where you will enjoy breathtaking views and an exhilarating boat excursion. Cross the bridge connecting Whidbey and Fidalgo Islands and visit the quaint town of Anacortes, where the ferry takes you to the San Juan Islands and Canada.

This house is perfect for family gatherings, small weddings, small business conferences and cooking demonstrations.

A solid wall of windows on the upper level provides sweeping views of the Cascade Mountains and Saratoga Passage. Cook, dine, or settle in to the living room and enjoy these amazing sights.

View the stunning sunrises and snowcapped mountains, watch the eagles soar and the whales migrate in the spring and fall from the large, comfortable deck. A pair of eagles have chosen this property as a favorite perch.

An open plan kitchen is exceptionally well equipped for cooking gourmet meals or hosting cooking demonstrations.

A private community beach is accessed via one of the most beautiful trails on Whidbey Island. Clams and mussels are plentiful.

There is an Island County Transit bus stop near the Greenbank Store (Hwy 525 and Bakken). Service is free for all of Whidbey Island. The transit will even take you to the Coupeville Ferry landing if you are planning to visit Port Townsend.

                              About: We relocated from Texas to Whidbey Island in 2006, upon retirement. Prior to retirement we searched the entire country for our perfect spot. Being on the water was our main criteria. We seriously considered Colorado, North Carolina and Virginia. When we found Whidbey Island, we know we had found home. We could not be more delighted with our choice.

                              Why Greenbank:
                              Whidbey Island is the ideal vacation spot, any time of year. You can excape the heat of the summer and enjoy high temps in the 60s and 70s. Our winters are extremely mild and the rainfall amounts are far lower than you imagined. We average about 20' a year. The natural entertainment is not to be believed. This is truly heaven.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Where else could you watch the migrating whales and perching eagle, enjoy magnificent mountain and water views, as well as breathtaking sunrises, all from the comfort of this vacation rental.
