Useless Bay house description

Enjoy wonderful views of the Olympic Mountains, shipping lanes, Useless Bay, Sunlight Beach and Double Bluff from our 2300 square foot, hillside home. Short walk (3 mins) on the wetlands boardwalk to get to beach area.

See below for a link to lots more pictures of inside, outside, and the view.

Bring your beach shoes to explore miles of sandy beach and tide pools at low tide (some shell/gravel/muddy areas, but mostly sand). At high-tide use the grassy community area for water access or launching your kayak.

The house has a large yard and an awning to provide cool shade while enjoying the view and relaxing outside. The family room is stocked with games and puzzles, some videos and DVDs as well as a wood burning fireplace. Two bedrooms each have a Queen bed. The huge third bedroom (24x20ft) has 1 Double, a Twin (with Trundle), a set of bunk beds and a racing car bed! It makes a great kids playroom too.

The entire house was re-painted October 2008 inside and out.

Quick access by car to Clinton Ferry, Langley, Freeland and the backroads of South Whidbey Island. Very peaceful. 20 mins to Coupeville and 30 to Oak Harbor and Naval Air Station.

We now offer free early check-in and late check-out (when availability permits) to make full use of ALL your days on the island and avoid the peak-time ferry lines.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: We fell in love with this area of Whidbey Island some years ago when we stayed in hotels and other rentals. On one trip we spent some time driving around admiring the views and some of the houses. When we saw this property for sale, Bingo! We knew we wanted a place of our own here overlooking Useless Bay and Double Bluff. We plan to retire here, but meantime we love to visit and want to share the joy of this area with others.

                  Why the Owner Chose Useless Bay:
                  You really get the feeling that you're 'away from it all' here, it's very quiet (we sleep so well), but there's lots to do too. The beach is so much fun to explore and the low tide goes so far out you feel you could walk forever. The views and sunsets are gorgeous, especially when the clouds roll out to reveal the Olympic Mountains in the distance. The surrounding area has some great restaurants, some quaint towns and yet it's quick to get back to the mainland if you time the ferries right. Wi-Fi provided.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  EARLY CHECK-IN/LATE CHECK-OUT; AVOID THE FERRY LINES. FULL SIZE HOME - NOT A CABIN. We rarely do back-to-back bookings so most of the time we offer early check-in and late check-out so that you can enjoy a full day on your arrival and departure. Not only that, it means you can take the ferry out of peak hours and avoid any waiting at the dock. No rushing to pack on your departure morning while the cleaner is at the door. Relax! Take your time! The weather is always sunnier/drier than Seattle just 30 miles away. We've often heard our Seattle friends tell us 'what a drizzly weekend we're having', while we're sitting outside in dry and balmy weather. This is a full-size 3-bedroom home, not a cramped cabin, and has a big yard too.
