Completed renovated over the past few years, this beautiful luxury property offers contemporary bedrooms, a master bath with a steam room and soaking tub, a fabulous new glass surround deck with 180° views, a to-die-for contemporary kitchen, a curved roof beach shelter and much more.

The main house provides luxury amenities and amazing beach, water, and mountain views from every room. The home features a large open kitchen with granite countertops and top of the line appliances, teak trestle table that seats 10, oak floors with antique Persian carpets, cathedral ceilings, three gas fireplaces, a huge deck perfect for entertaining, and an atrium room.

About Nancy Ritzenthaler

Nancy and Al have lived in California, Boston, and Auckland New Zealand, but both grew up in Seattle. We use the proceeds from our vacation rental to fund a variety of environmental and social causes, including Whidbey Camano Land Trust, the Bicycle Alliance, Conservation NW, and CARE International.

Nancy Ritzenthaler purchased this House in 1998

Why Nancy Ritzenthaler chose Greenbank

After looking for Whidbey Island real estate for 2 years, we purchased the property because of the incredible beachfront setting. After 10 years of continual renovation, we have recently rebuilt and/or redecorated almost every inch of the structures. The property is now truly world-class, designed to delight experienced travelers used to the best of the best. We enjoy hosting guests from every part of the US and other parts of the world.

What makes this House unique

The home has perhaps the best location in the Islands. Situated facing Southwest, gorgeous sunsets are experienced year-round. Rather than being elbow to elbow as with the beaches of Mutiny Bay just to the south, the home is uniquely private and adjacent to a natural lagoon. There are large fir trees surrounding the house, limbed up to maximize the views, and providing a sheltering natural setting. Our 1 1/2 acres is managed organically with native plants providing forage for birds, deer, and other wildlife. Our major remodel used FSC certified lumber, sustainably grown. Materials such as clear fir trim wood sourced from recycled beams, cork floors, and Lyptus cabinets, were purposely chosen for the green characteristics. Our philosophy is that luxury and sustainability are not mutually exclusive. In fact, by purchasing higher end products, furniture, and by using finishes that are designed for both beauty and long life, both goals are achieved much more easily.

Park nearby for trails to hike, beach to walk, boats and water critters to see out the window in the water. A local heron fishing every day at what must have been "his" spot on the shore. Coupeville nearby for a tasty meal out, mussels at Christopher's!

                                                                    We had an absolutely wonderful weekend at this property. The house is cozy and comfortable with more amenities than needed. The rooms are spacious and the beds comfy. Everyone slept well and was able to relax. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances and the refridgerator is huge; plenty of space to cook big meals. The beach front fire pit is great for large groups; the lawn perfect for games. Overall, a wonderful property with great owners. Definitely worth the cost.

                                                                    Beautiful property - fabulous kitchen with everything you need, comfy beds and very private

Tough property for elderly or disabled. Steep slopes, lots of level changes and stairs. Even the able-bodied tripped on the rise to the living room but you get used to it - just beware! Lots of sleeping spots to choose from. Easy to be together or be by yourself as you choose. Will definitely return with friends!

The location is in the northern part of South Whidbey Island, equidistant to the two most interesting towns on the island, Coupeville and Langley. We are also just 8 minutes away from Freeland, the hub for services on the island, including an excellent supermarket with organic and bulk food, artisan bakery items and desserts, gluten-free section, local and imported fruit/veges, and everything that a big-city supermarket can provide. The location is especially amazing as a hub for cycling routes; we have hosted several bicycling groups at the property.
