Oak Harbor house description

Welcome to Swan Valley in Oak Harbor on gorgeous Whidbey Island, Washington. Bordered by a wildlife preserve to the south and Joseph Whidbey State Park to the north, this peaceful setting is perfect for your next get-away. Enjoy the quiet country road with amazing west facing views of Swan Lake, the Pacific Ocean and Olympic Mountain Range. Sunsets are amazing here!

This quintessential beach cottage is the perfect place to just hangout on the deck while enjoying the views of Swan Lake and the Pacific Ocean beyond. Enjoy the variety of birds flying overhead that make the wildlife preserve their home. Easy two minute stroll to the shore with miles to explore in any direction. All within a four minute drive of Oak Harbor with its abundant ammenities, many wonderful restaurants and quaint shops. Rural calmness within the city limits for the best of both worlds.

Inside the house you will find a super dining area that takes advantage of the great views. Fireplace for chilly nights and living area under a large vaulted ceiling. The house is also appointed with many skylights, even on an overcast day the house feels bright and airy. Enjoy the awesome sunsets over the Pacific from the comfort of the couch. The well appointed and spacious kitchen is just off the great room and also enjoys the westerly views. The kitchen looks out over the large backyard, generous shady back deck, firepit area and fruit trees. Enjoy the country feel and even a Mount Baker view on a clear day.

The master bedroom, bunk room and bathroom are all very comfortable and well appointed with towels and linens for your stay. Sanitized hotel bed and pillow covers, on-site laundry, and professional cleaning service after each guest assures a top quality home for your getaway.

Whether watching the ships go by as you read by the fire, watching sunsets or exploring the miles of shoreline Whidbey has to offer, this is the perfect house for your next beach getaway!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We are a family of three from White Rock, British Columbia. We have been coming to Whidbey for about ten years and feel very lucky to have purchased a home here. We hope to have many happy times at Whidbey in the years to come with our family and friends and are happy to be able to share it with you and your families!

                  Why the Owner Chose Oak Harbor:
                  Whidbey is so accesible! Halfway between Vancouver, British Columbia and Seattle, Washington. We can be parked in our driveway in only one hour and ten minutes once we are through the Peach Arch border crossing. Very easy to access in that there is a bridge from the mainland to Fidalgo Island and the very famous Deception Pass Bridge brings you to Whidbey (read 24/7 access no ferry wait or fees required!), or if you prefer there is a ferry from Seattle at Mukilteo or Victoria, BC to Anacortes. Also the Keystone Ferry from Whidbey to the Olympic Penninsula takes you right into historic and picturesque downtown Port Townsend. The beaches on Whidbey are pristine and there are lots of great lakes too! There is abundant sea life and whale watching is amazing here. The activities are endless........fishing, crabbing, clamming, kayaking, boating, sailing, kite boarding, surfers have a few secret spots, diving and underwater dive park, abundant mountain bike trails, antiquing galore, lavender fields, farms and vineyards, artists and artisans in abundance. Restaurants aplenty, shops, historical buildings, festivals, art shows movies, golfing you name it! Great jumping off point to exploring the San Juan Islands, Olympic Penninsula, Port Townsend, shopping the Burlington or Seattle Premium Outlets, Laconner, Historic Coupeville, Greenbank and Langley or just enjoy the large property from the deck! Do as much as you like or do nothing at all....it is a wonderful place to spend time, people are friendly and there are gorgeous vistas at every bend in the road.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We enjoy being so close to the water in a rural setting with horses and bunnies as neighbors but just a four minute drive to all the ammenities of Oak Harbor. The state and city parks are amazing here, but even if you just stay cuddled up in the house it is so comfortable and easy, the view changes many times throughout the day with the passing boats, tidal changes and just even the colours of the sky....you never have to leave...only if you want to!
