Sandpiper Haven is a charming two bedroom, two bath, single story, low bank waterfront house located on world famous Penn Cove, Whidbey Island, with direct beach access , phenomenal views, a great deck, nearby boat launch, and much much more. Conveniently located between Coupeville and Oak Harbor, enjoy fabulous VIEWS south across Penn Cove of the Olympic Mountains and Coupville, and east of the Cascades! With annual rainfall of just over 21 inches, nearly half of the regional rainfall, you can enjoy being in the rainshadow of Whidbey Island.
Formerly called 'Penn Cove Beach Cottage' Sandpiper Haven now has new owners and plenty of updates including high speed internet, and all NEW HDTV with cable TV, ipod docking stereo CD/radio, outdoor furnishings, gas grill, fire pit, Sleeper Sofa, and much more. This is a low-allergen environment. For this reason, no pets and no smoking are permitted. Enjoy this comfy, well-appointed and well-supplied house in a phenomenal setting.
During Peak Months, enjoy access to two sea kayaks and a 12' Rowboat to qualified Guests to explore the cove, fish or crab (and yes, we have crabbing and fishing gear too).
Sandpiper Haven is truly a bird watcher's paradise with floating flocks of resident and migratory water fowl and overhead visits by a neighboring family of eagles. For the seafood lovers, try mussel and clam digging and enjoy fishing just steps from the back door. Qualified Guests can borrow the two kayaks and 12' Rowboat to explore the Cove on calm days during Peak Season at no additional charge.
The day brings beautiful views of boats, seals and otters playing in the water, and of the snowy peaks of the Olympic Mountains rising in the distance beyond the shores of Penn Cove. To the east catch glimpses of the Cascade Mountains as well. The house is south facing to capture the warmth of the sun on a large private deck in fair weather, or inspire romance watching storm-churned waves while comfortably seated indoors by the large stone gas fireplace.
Evenings can be spent by a private firepit roasting marshmallows, curled up with a book on super comfy new living furniture by a gas fireplace, playing games and doing puzzles with friends and family, or watching a movie on the new HDTV.
Or, you may prefer an evening out with great dining options in Coupeville, Langley, Oak Harbor and beyond.
Enjoy access to the local heated outdoor community pool as our Guest from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
The house sleeps 4-6 comfortably, with a heavenly pillow-top Queen Bed in the Master, and two twins in the 2nd bedroom. A new sleeper sofa with additional memory foam topper allows for another two people to sleep comfortably in the Living Room. We even provide a portable crib and bedding for infants. Dine comfortably inside or out for up to 6 Guests.
An outdoor private promontory allows you to get further away from it all, boasting even more fabulous views down the beach and across Penn Cove.
Action seekers may kayak the cove or explore the many hiking and bike trails within minutes from the house. Bring your own boat or jet ski and launch it from our private community-owned boat launch and dock just several houses from the property.
The house was built in 2003 so is well-insulated and perfect for year-round.
The historic waterfront town of Coupeville, visible across the cove, can be reached in minutes by car. Oak Harbor, to the North, is also minutes away for major shopping amenities and restaurants. And to the West lies Historical Ebey's Landing Preserve and the nearby Coupeville Ferry with service to historic Port Townsend. Greenbank Winery, antiques shops, galleries, the town of Langley, and Deception Pass are also nearby.
Best suited for: families, romantic getaways, couples retreats, girls weekends away, small reunions, great stays when attending a wedding, holiday gatherings, anniversary present for the grandparents, rewards for employees, adventure-seekers, and many more.

NOT ADA approved, but accessible to individuals with some limitations. Not wheelchair accessible (yet). This is a single story home with additional beach access at nearby boat launch (3 doors down) so may be accessible/appropriate for some handicapped individuals or those with limited mobility. There is a handrail to help get up the three steps to the front door. The first bathroom is large enough to get a wheelchair through but again, not fully ADA accessible (stay tuned, we are working on this)....moreless
We are a low allergen environment. We have significant allergies in our own family. For this reason, no pets and no smoking allowed on the property, no exceptions. Sorry and thank you for understanding....moreless
I got a question about this, 'why isn't it oceanfront' so I decided to click 'yes' and explain. We look at the Puget Sound, which is salt water, yes. But this is a cove, and not the wide open beach I think of on the Pacific Ocean coastline. Hope that clarifies any questions about this....moreless

About the owner: We are a family of four and have always loved the out of doors. Julie grew up outside of Boston, and Pete in Durango, and we both met out in the Seattle area back in 1994. Come and stay at our home and see what we love so much about the NW, Whidbey Island, and Sandpiper Haven.
Why the Owner Chose Oak Harbor:
We love Whidbey Island and have spent years traveling around the northwest exploring. Whidbey Island has so much of everything great that the northwest to offer - views, mountains, water, beach, hiking, biking, clamming, kayaking, fishing, and exploring.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sandpiper Haven is really 'Heaven' to us - we love the beauty, peace, access to beach and exploring and comfort of this beautiful home. Sometimes we choose to just simply hang out and do puzzles, play games, read books, and enjoy eachother's company. Other times, we love sitting on the expansive deck viewing wildlife such as the bald eagle that perched on our nearby dock for TWO hours the other day, or the kingfisher hovering right out front! And then there is clamming, boating, and all the great parks and exploring nearby. A short drive to Coupeville is always rewarded with ice cream for the kids at their fabulous ice cream parlor, Kapaw's. Come and enjoy Sandpiper Haven and we hope (think) you'll love to come back year after year! Just read our Reviews and see what others have to say....
