Property description

WE DO ALL OF OUR OWN BOOKING.
PLEASE CALL (425-308-2800) FOR RATES AND AVAILABILITY INFORMATION
The Beach House is located adjacent to the Ebey's Landing National Historic Reserve on the west side of Whidbey Island. The beach is one of only a few Washington State private beaches along the Keystone Spit. Just West down the spit is Old Fort Casey State Park and the landing for the Port Townsend Ferry. A short walk or bike ride to the ferry connects us to the wonders of the little city of Port Townsend, with its shops, restaurants and beach activities.

Although in such a seemingly natural setting, our home is a mere 5 miles from the historic town of Coupeville, with its grocery store, restaurants, shops, service station, banks and Whidbey General Hospital. This quiet waterfront farming community, at the heart of Ebey's Historical Reserve, still reflects the character of a frontier seaport when Puget Sound was being settled.

Throughout the Reserve, from the shoreline of Penn Cove to the beach and bluff at Ebey's Landing, you'll share space with farmers and bald eagles, gray whales and bicyclists, sea otters and kayakers. Depending on your time-frame, activities as diverse as the Arts & Crafts Festival, Penn Cove Mussel Festival, Concerts on the Cove and many other community events will entertain and enlighten you throughout the year.

Your time at The Beach House will be enhanced by the feeling that you are living on a beautiful, fully equipped floating home. You will be so near to the water that the only sounds at night are those of the waves lapping at the shoreline. You’ll wake to the view of ships leaving Puget Sound, porpoise and seals playing in the waves and bald eagles searching for their morning breakfast from the sea.

On the front side of the home is a natural wildlife preserve, home to any number of birds, deer, fox and endless animal life. You will see that Bald Eagles are not extinct!

The home is garnished with nearly everything that you could need. Bring your food and your beach toys and bikes and you’ll be set. The living area of the home is that of a great room style, with living room, dining room and Kitchen openly adjacent to one another. They all open to a 575 sq. ft. enclosed deck and a 644 sq. ft. patio.....that’s a lot of outside! There is an enclosed fire pit to roast those marshmallows and wienies just off the patio on the beach……So bring some firewood!

The master bedroom/ bathroom opens to the water and the incomparable view of the Olympic Mountains and the Puget Sound shipping lanes. Watch the cruise ships leave for Alaska every Saturday and Sunday evening while enjoying a glass of wine from the warmth of the master bath soaking tub.

The second and third bedrooms have a queen and two single beds respectively. They share a compartmented full bath. There are full extra large laundry facilities and an outdoor shower to accommodate even the wildest day scouring the beach and the trails of the preserve.

The front yard is fully landscaped and enclosed for privacy……a perfect place to read in the afternoon sun or just roll around in the grass. Just outside the walled front yard the eagles stand atop the telephone poles to get a better view of the entire Preserve area....they are the kings of that domain.

Sunset on the beach is a special time. The transition from dusk to night can be carried in by the forces of nature in the winds or the solitude of glass like water kissing the beach…..you won’t know until it happens. On clear summer evenings the Olympic Mountains are drenched in the radiant colors that only sunset can deliver…….mornings have their own distinct pallet of colors.

Outdoor activities will surround you while on your visit; salmon fishing and crabbing, kayaking and world class diving are right at your backdoor. The public boat launch is next to the ferry terminal only a mile+ away and the fun of exploring Old Fort Casey is day trip in itself.

Ebey’s Preserve is full of trails and treasures to keep just about anyone captivated and exhausted. The old Sunnyside Cemetery on the edge of the Preserve dates from the late 1840’s and holds the stories of how Whidbey and most of the Puget Sound region became settled. Whidbey Island is the home of Oak Harbor Naval Air Station and to the south is the Bangor Submarine Base, so aircraft, ships, subs, and parachutists make their appearances on a regular basis. There is so much to do on Whidbey that you won’t have the time to even think about video games, telephones and computers......this is life we have here!

I may sound a bit enthusiastic......that’s why we live here.
Come, slip into this type of living for a while; you may not want to leave.

  • Waterfront:

    The home is located on Admirals Cove beach. The beach is the product of ancient glaciers that pushed the Keystone Spit into place. It is composed entirely of small clean gravel. The spit was created from driftwood being blown up Puget Sound into the face of the glacier and wave action depositing gravel against the driftwood. So we have a natural driftwood barrier between the water and the homes. It presents no problem for easy beach access, but is quite a site!...moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: My family has owned property on Whidbey Island since the mid 1950's. The idea that we could be so close to a large metropolitan city the size of Seattle and only minutes away from the peace and tranquility that Whidbey Island affords is a gift not many regions can attest to.

Why the Owner Chose Coupeville, WA, USA:
I built this home on this beach because of the view and the wonderful access. Our children grew up on the beaches of Whidbey. It was a wonderful place for them to explore and have all that nature had to offer at their backdoor. As they got older we moved to the mainland for the schools, college and my business. For years, we could only enjoy the island on the weekends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Now we have the shear pleasure of full time residence again on this magnificent island. It affords us a lifestyle of fishing in our back yard, golf in the mornings, Kayaking in the evenings; and never dealing with the traffic and congestion of the big city. We love it here!
