About Suzanne Haynes

My famliy and I are originally from Florida and are naturally drawn to the water and boating. But the spectacular beauty of WA, has us hooked. Coupeville and our home speaks to these two very different settings-to be able to have water views and go boating under the backdrop of the Olympic and Cascade Mountains is truly stunning.

We love all the outdoor activities Whidbey Island has to offer, but even more the family memories we have made just relaxing in our home.

Why Suzanne Haynes chose Whidbey Island

We chose Coupeville for its charm and seaside feel. My husband grew up in coastal CT and the town itself really reflects this past. To feel so far away, yet only an hour and half from downtwon Seattle was also a big draw for us. We love Ebey's Landing and think Deception Pass is one of the prettiest places we have ever seen.

What makes this house unique

Our home is 2 blocks from historic downtown Coupeville, allowing us convenience, yet the home itself is so quaint and hsitoric we feel miles from anywhere, like we have stepped back in time. The access to the boat ramp and public park across the street have been very helpful. We love taking our coffee and dog early in the morning down to the waterfront and strolling on the beach.

Lovely House in Coupeville

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend stay in Coupeville. This house is the perfect location with a 5 minute walk to the shops/restaurants on the waterfront. Check in and out was very easy. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Lovely cottage in perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here 3 nights:- two small families together and this was perfect for us. The home's decor is very relaxing. One bathroom was just fine for our gang, no issues at all. Walking distance from the charming town of Coupeville -- with nice restaurants, ice cream and candy shop for the kids, and beach-combing. We will definitely be back!

Perfect Coupeville Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this lovely house for three nights prior to taking the ferry to Port Townsend. The location is quiet, with a nice water view, especially from the upstairs bedroom. The kitchen is super, large and well equipped; the large washer & dryer was a big plus. There is a really nice big back yard, which we didn't use, but the many windows afforded great views of playful (and sleepy) deer wandering through the property daily.

The house itself is very old (historical site) but has been well maintained. The only bathroom is downstairs, with the two bedrooms upstairs, so one must be very careful heading down the steep stairs during the night (watch your head, the ceilings at the top are made for tiny people!). We knew there wasn't a fireplace prior to renting, but having one would have made the living room even more perfect, especially on chilly nights.

The house is a great base for long walks throughout the countryside; we also walked to dinner every night through the very safe-feeling neighborhood, and Christopher's was our favorite restaurant.

Suzanne was very responsive, and the family pictures around the house makes the house feel very welcoming. We will be back!.
