Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 to 3 people only)

Cabin nestled among Douglas Fir trees and mature landscaping. Verde fire granite countertops and real hardwood floors throughout with big picture windows make this vacation home feel as if it is part of the natural setting. Trails around property and to the beach. Private barbeque and outdoor fireplace to sit, relax and share a glass of wine.

Trail to a secluded beach is strenuous but very doable for anyone in shape.

Chickens and two goats are nearby and two Golden Retrievers are on the property as well.

Bring your boat (up to 16')or kayak and launch it at our private community boat launch on generally calm Holmes Harbor. Crabbing and fishing are great!

Bicycle riding is a must on Whidbey as well.

About Laura Strehlau

Steve and Laura Strehlau have owned their property on Whidbey Island since 1989. Their log home has been featured in local magazines and their garden has been on the Whidbey Island Garden Tour in 2007 & 2011. This newly built cabin (800 sq ft) is located on the six acres on which their log home is situated. They share their time between their home on Whidbey Island and their home on Maui. They also love to travel and meet new people throughout the world. Animals are a big part of their lives with sheep, goats, a cat and two Golden Retrievers sharing their home.

Laura Strehlau purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Laura Strehlau chose Langley

With over six acres of forest and beach, we wanted to share our land with others who want a bucolic setting for a vacation. Our vacation rental has just been completed (spring 2010) and is landscaped and ready for more guests. The home is bright and airy though it is located in a stand of 2nd growth Douglas Firs and Western Red Cedars. It offers both the woodlands and the beach, making it an ideal vacation rental. The setting is extremely private and quiet for a retreat like atmosphere. Trail and stairs meander thru huge evergreen and fern filled forest to our secluded beach.

What makes this cabin unique

Beach walking, crabbing in season, salmon fishing and picnicking are just some of the many outdoor activities here. We have even been awakened by barking sea lions and viewed grey whales in the Harbor on occasion. Bald Eagles fly on currents and deer are regular visitors. Being close to Seattle and Everett, Whidbey Island is an ideal getaway for anyone looking for a tranquil weekend or longer vacation. Our village of Langley offers excellent restaurants, shopping, art and entertainment and is only six miles from our door.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had a wonderful stay here. The home is incredibly clean and the outdoor space is divine. Great home base to explore all parts of the island and very close to a great grocery store for picking up items. The home is so comfy and has so much of what you will need including a washer and dryer and even firewood for the fire pit. Walk to the beach is not for kids or elderly. If you plan to use this make sure to bring good hiking shoes. If the walk isn't for you, Double Bluff beach is about a 10 minute drive and fabulous! We will absolutely be back again!

Beautiful and peaceful

Better than what I was hoping for! I love that the cabin is surrounded by trees and you can't see anyone else! The outside area was so beautiful and I enjoyed the path down to the beach. It was exactly what I needed for a weekend away. Thank you!!

Beautiful relaxing enchanting forest

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed this cabin. The grounds are so so pretty and landscaped in such a thoughtful and natural way it just a very special and beautiful place. The cabin is clean and well appointed. They bed and furnishings are lovely and comfortable and there are many detailed touches throughout. When we needed a kitchen item, Steve came right over to save the shrimp scampi! This is really a lovely little cottage with great grounds in a beautiful quiet old growth forest. I can't wait to come back.

Exactly what we expected!

  • 5 of 5

We were here to enjoy our 37th wedding anniversary and this place made it easy.

We went down to the beach twice which was very private, I did not see how anyone else would have access. However the access is definitely a workout!

Thanks, Steve, Laura and caretaker Dave
