Coupeville house description

Spend hours beach combing on the shores of Admiralty Bay or gazing out at the Olympic Mountains and Keystone ferry making it's run across the Sound. Fly kites and explore the big guns at nearby Fort Casey or hop a ferry to the historic town of Port Townsend for dining or shopping. Beach comb and bird watch, scuba dive and scour the horizon for submarines and cruise ships. Did we mention the spa day option in Coupeville? All this is possible from our beach home situated at water's edge and surrounded by a 1600+ acre wildlife preserve, the largest in the Pacific NorthWest. Our home is adjacent to a State owned preserve and feels very private. We are located on Whidbey's Scenic Isle Way 90 minutes from Seattle (including ferry from Mukilteo) and minutes from cute and historic Coupeville.

Our kid friendly, no smoking two-bedroom, two-and-one-half bath home (2359sqft) is perfectly suited for two couples or a family. The two large, bedroom suites each feature a queen-size bed. The recreation room includes a new 46 inch flat screen, DVD, satellite TV, high speed internet and wifi throughout the house. The living room/dining room, kitchen covers the full width of the house and is completely windowed for maximum view.There is a murphy bed located in the dining room (which closes off with pocket doors),overlooking the water. The kitchen features everything a gourmet cook could want plus there is an outdoor beach barbecue (firepit) area. The house is heated with two gas fireplaces that will take the chill off any of those on shore breezes you may encounter.

An 800-square-foot deck just steps from the water and two enclosed patio areas give you plenty of room to sun, nap, read, or just 'be.' A second, fully-enclosed, court yard located outside one of the bedrooms for star gazing, bird watching, or just solitude and relaxation. Recent new bathroom addition (2012) and new carpet throughout (2013).

Listen to the birds as they flit about - you are in the middle of one of the largest bird sanctuaries in Washington State. Or go for a walk - there are miles of trails at Fort Casey and nearby Ebey's Landing. You could go into one of the historic towns on Whidbey Island - Coupeville, Greenbank, or Langley. Deception Pass State Park is just a short drive away - a site visitors come from far away to see. On occasion during the summer, the jet Prowler squadron based at Whidbey Naval Air Station practice touch and go up at the airstrip about a mile away. You can park at the end of that airstrip and watch them roar overhead or you can admire them from our deck. You will never lack for things to do - or not to do if you so please. You might even be lucky enough to have our resident bald eagle sit on the flagpole for your viewing enjoyment!

                        This is the second time I have stayed in this home, and I look forward to staying again! First of all, the location is amazing. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and just enjoying the view, walking on the beach, playing outside with the kids, and hiking at nearby Ebey State Park. In addition to the location, the home is extremely comfortable with high quality beds and bedding as well as a fully stocked kitchen. We chose to eat in for every meal because it was just too hard to leave this amazing home, but Coupeville is minutes away if you prefer to eat out. Such a treat to stay in this home, and I can't wait to return.

                        We just experienced a fabulous weekend here. My wife, daughter and our 3 grandchildren stayed Saturday and Sunday night. We had such a good time I must LIST the things we saw and did: 1. We had GREAT weather. It was so warm that we were able to sit outside in light jackets, and the kids were in T-Shirts. 2. The sunsets and sunrises were spectacular. The sun going down behind the Olympic Mountains was a religious experience, and the sunrise the next morning was equal to that. We could actually see Mt. Rainier on the horizon, over 100 miles away. 3. We saw an ORCA swim by not more than 25 yards offshore right in front of the house, and then we saw a sea lion not more that an hour later. 4. The size and number of huge cargo ships going by in front of the house is astounding. We saw cargo ships up to 900 feet long, and even more tugboats and pleasure craft. It is a SPECIAL treat to watch nuclear submarines go by on their way to Bangor Submarine Base. 5. The WIFI and TV reception is great, and there is a very large TV in the living room, plus one in the kitchen, and excellent WIFI coverage everywhere in the house and even in the yard. 6. We built a HUGE fire in the outdoor fireplace, and enjoyed it until the last spark went out. The kids roasted s'mores and the adults enjoyed drinks. The fire threw so much heat we had to take our jackets off. There is NO shortage of driftwood to burn, all you need to do is walk a few feet and collect it. 7. The two indoor fireplaces are propane, just turn the switch and you get instant heat and a beautiful fire beside which you can sit, relax, read, and doze. 8. You can actually WALK to the ferry from here, it is about 1/2 mile, and spend a couple of bucks for a ticket and get a nice ferry ride to Port Townsend. This is a funky little town, and lots of fun to explore. 9. Be sure to visit Fort Casey, and see all the history it has to offer. It is a WW1 fort, and one of the BIG guns is still there, and all of the land and buildings, including powder magazines, gun placements, and even a lighthouse to explore.

                        If you want to get away, this is the perfect place to do it. It actually seems a lot farther away from the Seattle metro than it is. The description was accurate. The house offers anything you need. It has a well stocked kitchen. Everything is well maintained. The outside deck faces south, so watching the ships come out of Seattle is pretty cool. You can walk to the Ferry to Port Townsend and spend the day there also. You have only one house to your left facing the water, then a state park. A few houses to your right then another part of a park and the ferry. It is quiet and relaxing Very close to Coupeville, where we ate out a few nights, so even though it seems remote, it is not. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this is the place to be.

                        The house is well laid out to enjoy the fantastic view from inside or outside. Eagles, seals, and ferry boats make for great viewing. Two enclosed outdoor spaces for a dog. Very well stocked kitchen, excellent for cooking. The house is much bigger than we expected, very spacious with large rooms. Great all around!

                        My husband and I got away for a last minute anniversary trip. This house was perfect. The view was amazing. It was so peaceful and quiet. We saw deer, herons and a seal pup on the beach in front of the house. The home was very comfortable and DID NOT feel like rental. The kitchen was so well stocked with quality cookware and utensils - very important to me as I like to cook. We used the firepit every night sitting on the back patio - fun little bonus. The caretakers were super - they set us up with clam digging equipment and told us where to go - we got oysters and steamers clams and dunge crabs and mussels and had a FEAST! We will hopefully be back soon!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home!!

                        We had a great time and the kitchen was equipped with everything to produce a great meal. Eight of us took turns cooking. We were able locate local seafood for our dinner. We walked to the ferry and took it to Port Townsend. In the evening we went to a great restaurant in the area on Saturday. The rooms were clean and spacious. The view was spectacular.

                        We spent four nights at the house and had an amazing time. The house was clean and well taken care of and met all of our needs as a family of five and a dog. The kids spent countless hours at the beach building forts, fishing, and exploring. We particularly liked capping our evenings off by the outdoor fireplace, enjoying the sunsets and the views. Thanks for the opportunity to enjoy the property.

                        Crockett Lake Bird Sanctuary View on map

                        Thousands of shorebirds (more than 17 different species) rely on the lake as an important migration staging area. The area provides critical wintering and nesting habitat for more than 13 species of ducks. At least nine species of raptors are regular visitors, including Peregrine Falcons and Merlins. And, more than 238 species of birds have been recorded in the Crockett Lake area. The lake also has an interesting history. Anticipation of the Great Northern Railway passing through Whidbey Island on its way to Port Townsend sent speculators into a frenzy platting the towns of “Chicago” and “Brooklyn” on the Keystone Spit to take advantage of the new commerce promised by the impending railroad in the late 1880s.

                        Fort Casey State Park View on map

                        Fort Casey is a 467 acre state park which was built in the 1890s as a strategic fortress to defend Pugest Sound. Explore the huge gun batteries and pillboxes or watch eagles and fly a kite on the bluff overlooking the ocean. Admiralty Inlet was considered so strategic to the defense of Puget Sound in the 1890s that three forts, Fort Casey on Whidbey Island, Fort Flagler on Marrowstone Island, and Fort Worden at Port Townsend, were built at the entrance with huge guns creating a "Triangle of Fire." This military strategy was built on the theory that the three fortresses would thwart any invasion attempt by sea. The Admiralty Head Lighthouse is located in the state park.
