About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Newly remodeled 2 bedroom cottage on Maxwelton bluff with spectacular views of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains, sailboats, cruise ships and beach activity. Wonderful retreat 10 minutes to ferry and seaside shopping in the charming town of Langley. Public beach access is just minutes away. Spacious, comfy, romantic with rustic charm. Has master bedroom with french door, study, deck, large kitchen, covered porch, fish pond, and seasonal gardens.

No kidding - we think this is the best deal and best space available on Maxwelton beach - only $175/nite (plus cleaning fee and 2 night minimum stay). This is truly a magical place with nesting eagles, visiting otters, resident hummingbirds that zip around in the gardens and a symphony of bird life during migration!

Spacious remodeled kitchen has a guest bar with an amazing view of water, mountains, and gardens that makes cooking and entertaining a delight.

Relax in the evening on the deck, listening to the surf and watching the breathtaking sunsets after a fun day of beach combing, biking, hiking, boutique shopping, farmers' markets, and all the amenities Whidbey island has to offer.

For additional space or special occasions we can make arrangements to include our adorable 'Dragonfly Cottage' (sleeps 2-4) VRBO listing #377363, which is adjacent.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Whidbey Island

We chose this slice of paradise because it is like having our own Nature Channel - there is always something interesting happening out the window!

What makes this house unique

We love being just minutes away from great dining, entertainment and all the recreational amenities Whidbey has to offer - and being able to return to the privacy, beauty and serenity of our beach bluff.

So relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We were about to spend two days in a nice Seattle hotel when the spirit moved us to search for a house with a view on Whidbey Island. Mind you, this decision was made at 7:00pm and we were supposed to head to the hotel the next morning. Fortunately, we found this wonderful place, it was available for two days and all the arrangements came together (we are grateful). The open-floor-plan home is spacious, inviting, comfortable, and has a lot of light. Of course, the primary attraction for us tourists is the fantastic sunset view of Puget Sound. We enjoyed watching the osprey, herons, other sea birds whose names we have not learned, and especially the bald eagles. Massive ships, cargo and passenger, cruise past and many smaller boats, too. Over the course of our two-day stay, we read, made good use of the kitchen, relaxed, and even did our laundry all the while keeping an eye on the great views. If I could change anything about the house, I would find a way to make the primary inside viewing spot more comfortable. And, if I could make any suggestions to future vacationers: don't make a lot of other plans while you are staying here, you are not going to want to leave the house. One more thing, bring some good binoculars with you.

My cousin, her husband and I stayed for three nights together. They left and my son and his special girl came for one night. We had such a good time drinking coffee in the morning, exploring and hiking during the day, then coming "home" and preparing a meal in the kitchen looking out over the water. So blessed to have found this wonderful home. Next time I come to visit my son in Seattle, I would love to make this my "go to" accommodation. Very easy to get to Seattle from here.

Lovely cottage with a stunning view. Eagles and heron flying overhead made our day.

Well maintained home. Had everything we needed. Quite a few ants around, but I guess that's par for the season.

Beautiful house, with great views.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house, with great views and really quiet, just what we wanted as we live in the city. Loads of space with a big kitchen, great for cooking. There was a problem with the BBQ which Sue solved pretty quickly. The views are amazing, the house is near the edge of a cliff, might not be good with small children. There is a telescope in the house which was such a treat to look at everything out on the bay. We loved this house, and are already planning our next trip!
