Oak Harbor cottage description

Now booking for Summer 2014!

‘Fairwinds on West Beach’ is a comfortable, newly updated 2 bedroom, 1 bath cabin situated on the water. Come unwind, disconnect, and relax on the beach.

Located on the northwest coast of Whidbey Island, ‘Fairwinds’ is an ideal launch point for a multitude of excursions. Head north 15 minutes to Deception Pass Bridge and its impressive sights, head south to ramble an afternoon away in scenic Coupeville or to explore Fort Casey, or even head west on the Keystone Ferry for a day trip to Port Townsend.

If you desire to stay Oceanside, the cabin is a perfect retreat. Stunning water views will greet you from every room. The living room is decorated in relaxed coastal cottage decor and contains a queen-size sofa bed. The kitchen has everything you should need for cooking including dishes for 6+, a complete set of pots/pans, good knives, microwave, coffeemaker, crock pot, pancake griddle and more.

'Fairwinds' has 2 good sized bedrooms and 1 full bathroom with shower. The first bedroom contains a queen size pillow-top bed complete with a down duvet for those chilly evenings. The second bedroom contains 2 twin beds and a pack-n-play for little ones. Both bedrooms have windows that overlook Swantown Lake, a wildlife preserve that is home to herons, ducks, eagles and otters.

For outside living, a spectacular deck runs the length of the cabin directly overlooking the water. Or spend the day roaming, playing in the sand, or exploring the beach. Please note, beach access is possible directly from the cabin by scrambling over rocks/bulkhead - use at your own risk. Two public beach access points are also located within walking distance - 5 minutes south or 10 minutes north at Joseph Whidbey State Park. With 3 sites of access available, getting to the water is easy.

Only a 2 hour drive from Seattle or a scenic 45 minute drive up the Island from the Clinton Ferry terminal, your coastal vacation cabin is waiting for you.

*** Rental only available from May 1st through October 31st ***

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: We are an active, outdoor family of 5 who love to spend time together at the beach.

                      Why the Owner Chose Oak Harbor:
                      After 10 years of renting on the coast, we started looking for a beachfront property of our very own. Whidbey Island seemed an ideal spot - a short drive from Seattle, lots of great options for exploring, hiking, & shopping and amazing waterfront possibilities. When we first saw 'Fairwinds' it was in rough shape, but we knew after some TLC it would shine and be a perfect retreat for our beach-loving family.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      'Fairwinds' is literally feet away from the sound. Surrounded by water, mountains and amazing views from every window, its absolutely breathtaking.
