Property description

Whidbey's most desired location, South Whidbey, on gorgeous Useless Bay. Enjoy eagle and bird watching, clamming and crabbing in front of your beachhouse. With the sun setting behind the majestic Olympics, a mile plus tidal flat (on low tide)can make for hours of sandy beachcombing.

It's a great place for large and small children! Romantic escape for couples. Ideal retreat for artist or writer.

Visit the nearby village of Langley, just 10 minutes away. Perched on a bluff overlooking Saratoga Passage, Langley offers plenty of restaurants, antique stores and art galleries.

This beach house was built by our Norwegian uncle, Hans. He built this cabin as his home in the 1930's. There are many unique features to this house-a large cozy living room, master bed room with queen size bed and the second bedroom has built-in bunk beds, the dining room seats 8 easily, next to a cozy gathering kitchen. This home has housed many great family reunions!
