AREA ACCOLADES:

Travel & Leisure’s Most Romantic Summer Destinations July 2010 issue featured Whidbey Island as one of their 16 picks world wide: “Though it’s only a 20-minute ferry ride from the Seattle suburb of Mukilteo, this island oasis feels like the Pacific Northwest’s last frontier—a lost-in-time place of towering Cedars and sparkling coves overlooking Puget Sound.”

The area is know as 'The Sunny side of Whidbey' thanks to a third less rainfull than most of the Pacific NW coast. A twelve month 'sunshine study' was done in Sequim in 2010 & 2012 demonstating the dramatic effect of the rainshadow on the days of sun and rain. Here are some highlights from the sunshine studies:
•Winter (Nov-Jan) saw 5X as many mostly sunny days in the shadow vs. Seattle.
•Winter saw only 1/4 as many dreary days in the shadow vs. Seattle.
•Spring (Feb-May) saw the highest number of 'rain shadow' days per month, at nearly 8!
•Summer (Jul-Sep) saw rain shadow areas and Seattle with nearly equal mostly sunny days.
• Coupeville received 20' of rain compared Seattle's 36'
http://www.olympicrainshadow.com/
After reading about the 'shadow' it is obvious that you chances of enjoying some sunshine here November through March are about 75% better than along the I-5 corridor! Due to its drier climate and position over stunning coastal areas, it is often an ideal location for many activities, such as beach walks/ hiking, golf, bicycling, wave watching, or simply exploring. What great reasons to consider booking a few days at Ranvik Beach House during the winter months!

It is also called 'The closest place to far away' & for many residents of the Washington I-5 corridor you can get away on a single fill of the gas tank!.

Seattle King 5 TV viewers nominated Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve as 'Best Hiking Trail; Best Place to Watch a Sunset; Best Picnic Spot; Best Bird Watching'.

Sunset Magazine has named the Keystone to Port Townsend as one of the 5 best ferry rides in the Northwest.

Ebey’s Landiing is billed in local guidebooks as one of the best hikes in Washington. 'This 5.6-mile trail, just five minutes from Coupeville, with mostly dry trails year round, far exceed the expectations of many visitors.'

For a complete guide to visiting Coupeville, including restaurants, lodging and shops contact the Central Whidbey Chamber of Commerce visitors center at 905 NW Alexander St.

DISCLAIMER: 95% of the time this is a very quiet area. However ~5% of the time, almost always during weekdays, people in the Keystone area may experience jet noise when the jets from Whidbey Naval Station are practicing carrier landings on the outlying field 3 miles north of the house. Flyovers typically last 1/2 to 2 hours. Occasionally they last up to 6 hours and continue for an hour or two after darkness. These flyovers are sporadic and we have no way of knowing when they will occur. Be aware that ALL homes along the Keystone Spit / Admiralty Bay are subject to this.

Many think it is really interesting to get a close up view of these fantastic flying machines. Others find it is real annoying, especially after 10 pm (very rare).

If this happens while you are staying at Ranvik Beach House we suggest one of two options:
1. Stay inside and wait it out. It isn't too bad in the media room with the volume cranked up. We have ear plugs and two sets of noise cancellng headphones in our home for guest use; these mute but don't eliminate the sound.
2. Hop in your car & go somewhere else for a couple of hours.

Chance are that you will not experience this. However, if this would ruin your vacation, you may want to consider renting in some area other than Admiralty Bay / Keystone Spit. Please understand that we have no control over this and we do not offer any sort of refund or compensation to guests who experience these flyovers.

                                The Ranvik Beach House is in a beautiful location and the tastefully-designed house lets in bountiful light from the beautiful waters and pastoral setting. The three ample bedrooms with king-sized beds, along with the high end appliances and electronics, made it a luxurious getaway. We enjoyed taking the ferry to Port Townsend to shop, sightsee, and eat; we explored the trails in Ft. Ebey State Park; we biked around small lakes and through the countryside; and we enjoyed the fresh and local Penn Cove Mussels in Coupeville. We have rented vacation properties from owners in many states and countries. The Ranvik Beach House was the best we've experienced.

                                Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children, sightseeing, romantic getaway.

                                Owner response: Dick and Carol, We are so humbled that someone with your extensive travel experience would say that Ranvik is the best vacation property you have experienced. Actually several other parties have made similar statement, so we must be doing a most things right. Thank you very much for selecting us for your weeklong family vacation and for your wonderful compliment. Best, Dan & Lisa

                                Our group of 3 couples and 1 baby just loved our stay and the Ranvik House! The location is ideal -- (rocky) beach front with entirely unobstructed views along a private cove, about ten minutes from Coupeville center, 15 minutes from Langley and just a little further to the Mukilteo/Clinton ferry. The house set up is great for multiple couples. The house is very well appointed with everything we needed to cook meals and relax. The beds are quite comfortable. The decor is very nice. We sald bald eagles on our walk along the beach. We would not hesitate to book this rental again!

                                Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, romantic getaway.

                                We had a wonderful weekend and the weather was incredible. In fact I think I got sunburned on Saturday! But most importantly my mom said this was her best birthday ever. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful beach and rental with us. We hope to be back many more times in the future!

                                Imagine that your best friend--the one with great taste--lent you her beach house for the weekend. Staying at Ranvik felt like that. From the moment my 99 year old grandmother walked in the door, she was transported with delight, and the rest of us came right along. The house itself is beautifully sited on a smallish lot, but the layout, landscaping and attention to detail make you feel like you are alone overlooking the bay. The furnishings are simple, but inviting and extremely comfortable. The kitchen and baths are incredibly well stocked and the whole place was immaculate. Three generations spent a three day weekend there and there was ample space for total privacy and yet room to be together in the common areas. (Use of a walker was not a problem anywhere inside this spacious house.) The views were spectacular--from the wild wind & rain one night to the Olympics the next morning, ship traffic made more interesting by the thoughtful provision of a spotting scope (we saw a submarine escorted out to sea), wildlife, and of course the water. Due to the thoughtful layout you have a many different views out of oversized windows that lit up even a gloomy Northwest February. The whole place was so inviting--and so cozy--we could have stayed in the entire visit. We did get out to Coupeville for a lovely lunch at Knead & Feed and shopping, and to Freeland for groceries and dinner at Gordons. The Halls were wonderful hosts, responsive to our many questions, and thoughtful stewards of this very special property. If we hadn't come out from Washington, DC for this small family reunion we would be back several times a year. This was our first VRBO experience, and they have set a very high bar!

                                Owner response: Karen: Thank you for sharing the highlights of your celebration with Grandma. We're pleased that your extended family had such a great time. You join the many who have celebrated special events at Ranvik and left with fond, lasting memories. That gives us much joy. Best regards, Dan & Lisa

                                Believe the hype. My family had an outstanding time at the Ranvik Beach House. Upon arrival, my first thoughts were that it's more spacious and beautiful than the pictures suggested. The kitchen was large and had everything necessary to prepare and serve a variety of meals. It was great to step out the door and on the beach. It's a short walk to the playground at the end of the street. At night you can hear the calming sounds of the water rolling on the shore; no need for a wave machine. Without leaving the property we made s'mores in the fire pit, flew kites, and enjoyed the ocean sights and the comfort of the fireplace. Our kids (3 and 6) enjoyed the provided toys. The local grocery store had everything we needed. The house is conveniently located near many Whidbey destinations. We ventured out a few times, but would have been just as happy spending our entire stay at the house. The media room is cozy and has a wide range of choices for all ages and tastes. The cable channels and internet speed were more than enough for us. The owners were very accommodating and made things very easy before, during, and after our visit. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the Ranvik Beach House.

                                Ooops! I incorrectly stated the State Ferry from Coupville (Keystone) destination as Port Angeles! The Ferry from nearby the Beach House actually goes to Port Townsend, a quaint, little tourist destination with a eclectic selection of shopping and restaurants to enjoy. It makes for a great day trip by car, or park the car and walk on, or by biking! Either way, it's a great trip.

                                We stayed for a 3 day weekend with two other couples and had an absolutely delightful time. The house is very large, immaculate, and smartly decorated in a New England/Cape Cod beach home motif, with a nod to a Nordic ancestry. The kitchen is fully complete for cooking and all of the accoutrements necessary for preparing any meal. There is an array of complimentary coffee/tea setups too. The kitchen/dining/living room area is really more like a great room together, perfect for meal preparation and socializing with friends and family. The bedrooms are beautiful with warm, comfortable beds, two of the rooms look out onto the beach and water. There is a laundry room with full size washer/dryer. The back deck is very spacious with a good size dining table and plenty of comfy chairs for relaxing on. The fire pit is in the middle of the patio area it is fantastic and you look right out onto the water while standing next to a warming fire. Smores tools provided! A complimentary set of wood is provided for your first fire, wood is available in Coupville 6 miles away. Beach walking is literally steps away and we beach combed with two other couples and had a fantastic time, you'll walk on loose pebbles and small rocks and later sand. Bald Eagles were abundant! Our first morning there I sat in the living room, drinking my coffee and watched salmon jumping up out of the water right in front of the beach/back yard! There is a den with a television if you are so inclined, with several DVD movies selections in a drawer. We are all biking enthusiasts and brought our own rides, but the owner does have two bikes with helmets available in an attached garage. Biking from the beach house around Whidbey is fabulous. The ferry boat dock to Port Angeles is two miles away, a bike ride to the ferry for a day excursion to P.A. is perfect. You will not be disappointed in a stay here. We rode over to Fort Casey State Park, walked out to the bluffs edge and watched about 20 enormous Sea Lions frolicking back and forth for over an hour, it was incredible. This place just puts you in that perfect, relaxed, "I am on vacation" frame of mind. We are already planning a return visit!

                                Hi Lisa and Dan, We truly enjoyed our stay with Richard's brother and parents as we celebrated their 65th Anniversary. The anniversary dinner was grilled salmon cooked on your fabulous grill accompanied by fresh wild blackberries gathered from the roadside, and we enjoyed fresh produce every day. Our parents had no trouble getting around in your obstacle free interior and Richard's dad appreciated the tall shower in the master bath. The daily views through the wrap around windows were breathtaking in all weather and times of day. The views inspired Richard's father to tell stories from his childhood about staying at Vashon Island, and he took photos of the big ships and the birds. We captured some of their mutual storytelling on video. We had wonderful sunsets; the weather was warmer than we anticipated and there was little rain while during our 4 day stay. We didn't get to enjoy your fire pit, perhaps another time.

                                Ranvik House exceeded our expectations. The house is as pictured but the pictures cannot fully capture the site and the care that the owners have given their home. During our stay we had both cloudy rainy weather and beautiful sunshine and enjoyed it all. I loved cooking in the beautiful and well-equipped kitchen. The information provided addressed all of our questions and gave of clear guidance for gaining access and properly closing up the house. We hope to visit again and will recommend it to others.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2011

                              About the owner: We are a semi-retired professional couple who love the natural beauty of God's creation & enjoy quiet relaxation, fishing, hiking, and travel. We remodeled our first home on Whidbey Island in 1975 and have been building and remodeling homes for a hobby in the Bellingham area and now again on Whidbey. This well built home was a joy to restore and we decided to add a touch of Cape Cod to it giving it a more cozy feel. The name Ranvik is Lisa's family name in Norway which means Bay of The Ravens. We appreciate art and architecture & this house offers some of both. The Ranvik Beach House was built by a Seattle architect in 1964 as a family vacaction get-a-way at the height of the Mid-Century Modern era. He developed Admiral's Cove which includes a mile of beach. He had his choice of any building site on which to build his signature beach home. This site was selected for its outstanding orientation to all the breathtaking natural beauty and has the largest beach frontage of all the surrounding homes providing an extra measure of privacy. The house reflects the state of the construction art at the time with a wonderfully timeless, very functional beach vacation home design. The interior is very unique with shiplap interior & exterior siding and many interesting, angular corners and spaces. Our total interior remodel in 2012 maintained the home's original, unique character while incorporating the convenience & comforts of a modern home. The tasteful update is in a cozy, bright, contemporary Scandinavian style. Since completing the remodel in early 2012 we have found this to be a magical place for relaxation and enjoyment. It is our hope that you will have the same experience while staying here.

                              Why the Owner Chose Coupeville:
                              We lived on Whidbey Island years ago & have been coming back several times a year ever since. So we knew what a wonderful place it is . For several years we had been looking for a beach home to use as a get-away retreat for family and friends. After considering many areas we concluded that the Coupeville / Keystone area offered unsurpassed natural beauty along with a wide variety of recreational opportunites. Coupling that with the fact that it has some of the best weather west of the Cascades and is easily accessible by car clinched it for us. Now that we have had this beach house for over a year; we have no doubt that we made a great choice! This is truly a wonderful place where one can just totally relax. At the same time, if in the mood, there is a wide variety of fun, interesting activites only minutes out the door. We are confident you will enjoy it as much as our family does! 1-10-13 update: Please read our reviews you will see that we're not the only ones who think this is a Magic Place. Over 50 Five Star reviews in less than 2 years with nary a complaint! All our guests have been thrilled and so are we! We're confident you will be also.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              There simply is not a nicer beach house in the Coupeville area! Another unique benefits is the fact that Ranvik Beach House is located in the Olympic rainshadow. The result is third less rain and 30% more sunshine than most of western Washington, Oregon and lower British Columbia. It is appropriately refered to as the 'Sunny Side of Whidbey'. Like to dine out? You are in luck as Whidbey Island has been designated a state tourist 'Culinary Destination'! The close and very quaint towns of Coupeville and Freeland offer many excellent dining options from basic fare to gourmet dining. There is great shopping and spas for extra relaxation. Several wineries are close to the beach house with a wineries tour map available at the house.
