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.

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!

Perfect Girls Get Away Weekend

  • 5 of 5

From the outside, you can't tell how spacious this cottage is; and very quiet. I love the warm decor and big kitchen with everything a cook like me needed. There were five of us, so this place was perfect in every way. I love the big window in the kitchen facing the bay, barbecuing and watching the sunset from the back yard. Due to the conflicts in our schedule it took us three different try to get the date that we wanted and Susan was really nice about it throughout the whole process. We brought with us plenty of wines since this is our 5th year, but a nice bottle of red wine on the dinning room table waiting for us was a plus. Thank you, we will def be back to this beautiful, quaint cottage again.

Relaxing Getaway, Gorgeous Views

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully-decorated cottage is the perfect place for a completely relaxing getaway. The views are just stunning and the house has everything you need to relax, unwind, and cook gourmet meals -- or explore the restaurants, beaches, and trails of Whidbey. The owner is so nice, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. This is our go-to place to return to year after year. In the morning, you can sit and watch herons, eagles, and other birds along the shore at low tide. In the evening, the sunsets are gorgeous. The home is very clean, spacious, and comfortable. I can't say enough good things about the whole experience!
