About Janet Burchfield, Front Street Realty, Property Manager

We began as renters over Fourth of July 2000 and fell in love with the house, the neighbors, the views and the entire area. We returned every summer for the next 10 years at which point we were presented with the opportunity to buy it. We had scoured the length and breadth of Whidbey Island for all of those 10 years looking for a sanctuary to call our own. Nothing matched the joy, serenity, comfort and sense of community we had come to cherish at 21 Shorebird Lane. Until we are able to call it home for good, we enjoy sharing our home with our wonderful guests.

Janet Burchfield, Front Street Realty, Property Manager purchased this house in 2010

Why Janet Burchfield, Front Street Realty, Property Manager chose Coupeville

Serenity. Tranquility. Beauty. You feel like you are floating on the water as you sink into a comfy arm chair by the window, sipping hot coffee or tea. Bald eagles, in all their majesty, standing at the water's edge at low tide never cease to inspire awe. Feasting on Dungeness crab, caught a stone's throw from the porch, can't be beat. You will never find friendlier, more helpful neighbors than those on Shorebird Lane.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay at your home. We came for Race Week and should have rented a home on the beach a lot sooner. We've been coming to Race Week since 1987. We caught lots of crab, went clam digging, and loved exploring beaches. Met very nice neighbors and shared lots of stories and crabbing tips. A very relaxing and enjoyable week. We got 2nd in our sailing class, too!

Wonderful beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing week at this beach house. It's the perfect setting to watch bald eagles, heron, seals and we even saw a humpback whale!! The house is very clean, spacious and has all the amenities you need. The property manager is accessible and pleasant. I highly recommend this vacation home.

We loved nearly every minute of our stay. The fireworks for the Fourth of July celebration were a bit much and went on very late several nights. Other than that we loved the home, the view and the great crabbing. Thank you to the owners for continuing to provide us with such a great vacation destination.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

Property is well maintained and very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and there was more than adequate amount of supplies. The view is wonderful with the water being clear as glass... on the days it didn't rain. The location was great for getting places from whale watching to gardens and the charming town of Coupeville.
