About Fran Moyer

We moved to Whidbey Island in 1987 and bought our first property. We knew we wanted the west side of the Island and wanted to be conveniently located to the Seattle area where our children live. The lifestyle here on the island is a slower pace with lots of wild life to enjoy. The sounds of birds chirping instead of traffic noise is very peaceful and serene. We started coming to the island as a tourist and never wanted to leave, so here we are 20 years later and still enjoying every minute of our life here.

Fran Moyer purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Fran Moyer chose Whidbey Island

When we first started looking for property to buy on the island we knew what view we wanted. We narrowed it down to two streets with 'the best west side view'. This cottage was one of those views! We already bought our first place on the next street and when the sign 'for sale' was being pounded in the ground at this cottage we knew this was our second location that we had to have. Lucky for us we were first in line and now we can share it with our guests.

What makes this cottage unique

So close to the beach but just far enough away to be up on the hill so the view is much more expansive and it isn't as chilly as it gets right on the beach. It's the best of all worlds in summer and winter. In the summer the cruise ships are so close you feel like you can touch them, since we are in the narrowest part of Admirality Inlet they are bigger than life. And in the winter the storms roll in and your can cozy up by the fire and enjoy all the action. On a good day orca whales can be seen.

Wonderful Weekend Away, Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away on Whidbey. Fran and Thom were great, and we found the cottage a quiet pristine getaway, with SPECTACULAR VIEWS, and lots of local information, from great places to shop, to dining, and places to explore:) We will book here again, as two full days just wasn't enough time to explore the quaint towns, and local fare. My husband and I enjoyed cooking in, as well as some of the local restaurants, and highly recommend this wonderful cottage! We spent mornings in the hot tub with coffee, and nights under the stars with a wonderful glass of wine. You will ENJOY!

Best sunset and ship lanes views!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing island gettaway for urban dwellers! We discovered another property of the owners a few years ago for an anniversary weekend and have been back on numerous occasions. Rain or shine, winter or summer, this is the place to unwind and literally watch the ships go by. This anniversary we ended up at this sweet little cottage instead of their other home and fell in love with it. Adorable cottage with a view of the water the entire length of the property. We grilled on the deck, relaxed in the hot tub under the stars, walked our dog down to the beach, and best of all, sat and talked while we waited for more big ships to pass by us. Easy trips to quaint neighboring towns with shops and great restaurants. The hosts gave us everything we needed down to soft robs and privacy. I can't wait to come back again!

Wonderful cottage, fantastic views!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous find!!! The FabView cottage is indeed that ... FABULOUS Views! We loved the jacuzzi where we could enjoy a glass of wine under the stars, relaxing in the warm bubbling water. We grilled on the deck another evening, and watched a spectacular sunset. The cottage was comfortable with everything you might need. Great walk down the hill the the beach where you can watch people fish. Convenient location.

Wish I had one of my dogs with us ... great place with a pet as well!

Amazing view

  • 5 of 5

My husband surprised me with a weekend get a way from the kids.......Can I just say, what an amazing place, the view....Jacuzzi, cooking a fabulous meal while overlooking the shipping canal. I have since reserved this adorable beach cabin for a girls weekend in September for our 40th birthday's. Perfect place to disconnect from the city life.

So romantic!!

  • 5 of 5

We stay here a few times a year. It is so romantic, quaint and cozy!! My husband and I love coming here for the fabulous view, to disconnect and lounge. The hot tub is an absolute bonus too. Our dog Rocky always comes along and cant wait for his walk to the beach. We will always consider this place our romantic little beach bungalow. FYI, the owners are so accommodating and helpful when it comes to restaurants and activities on the island. See you this August!!!

This was our 3rd stay and each time just gets better and better. Went over to Port Townsend suggested by owner Fran and had a wonderful afternoon. Short little ferry ride, just park your car and walk on -all shopping and restaurants are within walking distance. This is a beautiful location, the views and sunsets are spectacular! Must not forget the wonderful hot tub after your day of adventures! We will definately be back. Thanks again Fran and Thom!
