About the Property
Beach house 2 beds 1 bath
Sleeps up to 5 in 2 bedrooms with 3 queens, one bath. Living room and kitchen with dining area. Small cabana hut without bath months sleeps 2 in summer.
Tell us in advance if you are bringing friends or pets. When we clean the house, we appreciate knowing of extra guests or pets AHEAD of time. We can then adjust our cleaning schedules. We are a cozy comfortable beach house for those who like adorable comfortable places. If you are seeking posh or sleekly modern, this place is not for you.
We have no cable or satellite TV service. We do have a flat screen TV where you can watch movies or stream internet with an hdmi cable attached to your device.
We have a stereo setting for your mp3 or ipod music device on aux.
Eagles soar overhead while you cozy up to the wood burning stove on a comfy sectional couch with a grand view of the water. Clamming, fishing, whale watching are all nearby. We call it Baby Beach since it is the perfect place for kids and dogs to play safely, and has a quiet innocence and old Whidbey charm.
The deck is the ideal place to read, talk, and relax in wicker lawn furniture as you view passing wildlife; deer, rabbits, seals, eagles, hummingbirds, and sea otters regularly grace our shores. Watch them from our comfortable couch next to the wood stove with a piano, books, videos and music to share, plus a fully stocked kitchen- just add food!
Coffee maker, toaster, microwave, glassware, ceramic dishes, table cloths, place mats, utensils, sandwich grill, waffle maker, and blender. Grill fish or toast marshmallows on the fire pit in the garden or sip coffee on the porch overlooking the water.
Town is a 10 minute walk away and has a grocery store with fabulous deli, organic foods, and bakery... antique shops, restaurants, bars, and bookstores nearby and a public park with playground and a boat dock, plus famous Double Bluff beach is 5 minutes away. You won't hear a whisper of traffic as you get away from daily life at our sanctuary.
Besides the kitchen, dining area, and living room with wood stove and piano, inside we have two charming bedrooms, one with a queen bed and another with two queen beds. One bathroom. The extra detached hut can sleep 2 more but has no bathroom and not insulated, it is a cozy wood cabana for summer only. The house is not super modern but it's a Whidbey Classic beach cabin. If you're looking for sleek and posh it's not for you. If you care more about the view and walks than home magazines, you'll like this place.
A recent review gives a great feel for our details...::
'I have been a vacation house visitor for about 25 years and this beautiful Whidbey island home is BY FAR the most enchanting and rejuvenating place I've ever been. So many details are attended to which makes the house seem warm and 'lived-in' and lends to the immediate feeling upon arriving that you have just come home. After unpacking and finding a comfortable place to sit, breathe and take in the view of the harbor, I could feel the stress drain from my body and mind. We only had 2 nights to be in that serene environment but it had such an impact on all of us that it felt more like a week... now THAT'S getting your money's worth! The home is walking distance (10 minutes) to thrift & antique stores, as well as the grocery store that has an amazing organic section and some of the most lovely seafood you will find in a tiny town, anywhere. We grilled some Copper River salmon and veggies one evening on the bbq provided (bring your favorite charcoal!) and we couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces the entire meal. We also walked up to one of the local restaurants for lunch and had a couple good sandwiches and salads but I would definitely recommend buying food and spending as much time at the beach house as possible because it's much more affordable than eating in town and you really won't want to be anywhere else for long during your stay. Definitely DO set out on a stroll at low tide so you can take in all of the gorgeous rocks & shells that adorn this quiet little beach. The morning sunlight is best and the water is calm because there's not much wind, which can kick up quite a bit off the harbor in the evening time so be sure to bring warm clothes if you're planning an outdoor fire. Although, if you've got a toasty fire going in the wood stove, the sound of the wind and the waves is truly a deeply calming experience not to be missed. The photos on the VRBO website are entirely accurate although the modest listing description left us delightfully surprised by all this wonderful beach home had to offer. If you've missed your opportunity to book your time away here this year, I HIGHLY recommend booking now for next year so that you can have the pleasure of staying at one of the most enjoyable vacation stays you'll ever find.'
15 minutes from the ferry to Seattle.

About the owner: A couple who live near to the beach house on the island in Clinton. Have lived in New Jersey, the Bay Area, Japan, England, and Central America. Attended University of California at Berkeley.
Why the Owner Chose Freeland, WA, USA:
We love Whidbey Island. Baby Beach house is a place to unwind from cares of the world. The wildlife and natural scenery is relaxing and invigorating. The smell of the sea, sightings of wildlife, and the colors of the sky and water make it a perfect place to let go.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Water at your doorstep, views of Mt Erie, wildness of Holmes Harbor, wildlife in your front yard, walk to town in 10 minutes. Breathing the salt air as you gaze over the blue sea is a special treat. Giant cedar woods and state parks are nearby. Sparking mornings and breathtaking sunsets.
